Check out the terms of his contract:
The Jets currently have about $16 million in cap space (LINK). I don't see how the Jets could do it unless they could convince Brees to renegotiate his contract, which he doesn't have to do. The Saints could cut Brees next year, though.

|5 days 6 hours ago||Another thing that occurred to me is||
If you're a Michigan fan, why would you want to believe bad things about Michigan players? Do you really want to believe that one of Michigan's players has no heart and is lying about injuries to boost his draft stock? How screwed up do you have to be to take pleasure in that accusation, as some here have seemed to?
We don't have to pretend that they're all saints and model players and teammates, but in the absence of clear evidence to the contrary it seems really perverse to think that Funchess is a bad teammate and a liar.
|5 days 10 hours ago||Besides which, nobody is saying||
that Funchess was the greatest receiver at Michigan since Braylon Edwards (who, by the way, dropped balls too) but that his injury prevented him from setting records. We're just saying that his injury explains a lot. That's hardly controversial.
In any case, yes: I would be willing to bet that Funchess played through more pain this year than many of us have experienced in our lifetimes.

and only throw bubble screens to Norfleet. That can be our base play and everything will work off of that. It will be an unstoppable offense. Norfleet will win the Heisman, making our dear leader very happy.

Understanding why the team didn't perform to expectations IS useful. Call it making excuses if you like, but pointing and yelling "failure!" definitely doesn't help at all.

I'm a professor and I want him to be my academic coach now.

University of Toronto: 13,239 faculty
McGill: 1,684 faculty
It's kind of hard to make like-to-like comparisons when the institutions are so different with respect to size.

I'm glad that both of the passengers are okay (I presume that they are since the article didn't comment on their condition).

Could be Henry Wilson Temple (LINK), but I'm not certain as in 1901 he was professor of political science at Washington & Jefferson College. Was he sufficiently important then to receive mention?

And deserves as many upvotes as it gets.

This post couldn't be written in traditional print media -- it would never get approved. Yet it strikes a chord with many of us. It's a wonderful thing, actually.

Thanks. It was your comment that made me go looking. Then, after I posted the story, I started wondering about what you had said on the broadcast.
The Tribute has a short story about the riots here, on November 26, whereas the game was on November 7th and the post-game article in the Tribune says nothing about riots. So you must be right (not that I doubted you).
PS This is really funny from my perspective (I teach the Classics) from the November 9th Tribute article:
I'm looking forward to the HTTV piece!

Latin's been around a long time.

|6 weeks 6 days ago||Yes||
Greg Mattison signed the three-year extension in March 2013 that pays him $835,000 in 2014, $875,000 in 2015 and $915,000 in 2016.

But if the OP wants to talk about the awesome quality of a Michigan education maybe s/he should spell words correctly (alumni) and avoid randomly capitalizing words.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||It is a very good school overall||
but the average undergraduate at Texas isn't very good. I haven't taught at Stanford like I did at Texas, but I have to imagine that the overall quality of the undergraduate body is much superior. I was a bit shocked at how poorly prepared the average Texas student was compared to the average student at UM.

But that's nonsensical on its face. Say I win the lottery. Almost by definition any major lottery will have infintessimal odds. Does it logically follow that I cheated? Of course not. But that's exactly what the author of the Sharp Football Analysis piece concludes: "it was not the result of simple random fluctuation."

"Wither Dymonte Thomas?" was a pun. Whence and whither are awesome words. Although I hate it when people say "from whence" which is nonsense as whence = from where/which place.

I beleive that all QBs taller than 6'6" must be measured in Brock Osweilers.
