Instead of playing smash mouth football, the Jets have gotten smashed in the mouth. Mark Sanchez, the Jets latest franchise quarterback project, looks like a fish out of water. He has thrown 16 interceptions and is looking worse as each week passes. Meanwhile, Ryan is left crying into Kleenex after a meltdown against the Jaguars, as well as finally admitting that offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer is a pretty inadequate play caller. Some will wonder how does the commissioner of the most successful league get a turkey award. Well here is how: 1) Goodell has allowed owners in the NFL, i.e. Jerry Jones, John Mara, Woody Johnson to put PSL licenses on season tickets, meaning that fans would have to put sometimes as much as $70,000 or even $100,000 per seat to reserve their spot in these new mutli-faceted football stadiums, and that is before paying for 10 football games (pre-season included).
Unless you are Donald Trump, or just really, really, really wealthy, you can forget about going to a game in your lifetime. The NFL doesn't want the regular Joe and Jane in their buildings.2) European vacations! The fact that Goodell thinks that putting a game in England every year is going to make Europeans love the NFL He is greatly mistaken. Europe hated the NFL Europe League, which went bankrupt in 2007 Now he is considering putting a franchise overseas. Gooodell also wants more regular season games and a potential Super Bowl in Europe,There is nothing wrong with bold business moves, but when fans are paying chunks of dollars in the States for 10 home games, and one of them won't even be played herethere is something wrong with that.
Plus, football players have to get used to the dramatic time changes in Europe. It's not easy to cope with jet lag, and these guys have to go out and smack each other around for three full hours. Finally, the Super Bowl is the highlight championship game of U.S sports. Then again a nice multimillion contract may have something to do with Delhomme's lousy play this year. The guy was once one of the most reliable quarterbacks in the NFL, taking the Panthers to a Super Bowl and two NFC Championship games, but this year he is third in the NFL in interceptions with 14. He has only eight touchdown passes and can't seem to regain his magic with Steve Smith and Mushin Muhammad.
