Seahawks coach Carroll: Washington punt return TD should have stood

Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times reports Seahawks return specialist Leon Washington’s 81-yard punt return for a touchdown Sunday in Cleveland, which was nullified by a block-in-the-back penalty against Kennard Cox, should not have been brought back according to coach Pete Carroll. “I didn’t think that was a call that should have been made,” coach […]

Seattle Keeps Special Teams Ace Leon Washington With Four-Year Deal

Josina Anderson of FOX31 in Denver and Inside the NFL reports agent Alvin Keels says he has a deal in principle on a 4-year contract for running back Leon Washington with the Seahawks.

Week Three 9-Route

Never underestimate a Jeff Fisher squad.  I’ve learned my lesson.  Defense is stifling, stymied Eli and the Giants at will.  Can you name more than two or three players on this unit?  Couple Fish and its D with Chris Johnson and a recharged, recuperated, revitalized, reinvigorated, reinvented Vince Young…well, what I’m trying to say, why […]

Jets End 3-Game Losing Streak, Blank Raiders 38-0

With the amount of scoring that took place in the final 15 […]

Jets RB Washington On the Field After All at Camp

Despite thinking otherwise, Jets running back Leon Washington has reported to the team and was on the field for the first practice of training camp. Washington must have come in the back door, as he was a no-show when the rest of the team checked into the players’ dormitory Thursday because of a contract dispute. […]

Jones and Washington Show Up as a Sign of Good Faith…Now Let’s Pay ‘Em

I still stand by my earlier posting that we should pay Leon Washington over Thomas Jones but it is a rare thing in the NFL to see players make the first move of “good faith.” I appreciate that as a fan. I recall when former Jets QB Chad Pennington took a pay cut just to […]

Jets RB Jones Finally Shows Up to Practice

Despite being unhappy about is current contract status, Jets RB Thomas Jones showed up to be with his team on Wednesday. He’s been absent becuase the team has been unwilling to work with him on a new deal. Jones is in the third year of a four-year, $20 million contract and already has made $13 […]
