Rodgers-Cromartie cleaned out part of his locker and stormed out of the Giants facility several days later. He admitted that was a mistake.
I’m dramatic man. I’m crazy. I can’t help that. I do stuff over the top, he said. I apologize. I handled it wrong. I’m good. I’m back. That is all that matters.
The defensive backs room was thrilled to see him return. Rodgers-Cromartie even gave cornerbacks coach Tim Walton a big hug on the practice field before shaking general manager Jerry Reese’s hand.
But the real reason that the trailer debuted on Monday Night Football is because Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky is the NFL’s BEST film critic.
At one point a few weeks ago, I said I was going to include my picks every week, but that was before I learned I could write a column with a word count to rival Peter King’s. So when my picks have been bad, they’ve been edited out (or never written at all). And they’ve been REALLY bad: I’m sitting at 12 points (out of a maximum 25) through five weeks. Woof.
UPDATE: 1-4 on the day! This section is hereby retired forever.
The birthday party ends at 12:30 p.m. ET, but it takes a while to clean up, pack up, walk home, and start putting the kids down for their naps. By the time I turn the TV, the Jets lead the Patriots, 7-0, and Aaron Rodgers has left the Packers game with an injury to his throwing shoulder. Yeesh, Friday the 13th is really making a full weekend of it, huh?
I’m counting on Lions-Saints to be a fantasy bonanza. I have what feels like every wide receiver from these teams in one league or another, and the conditions are ideal (bad defenses, Superdome) for a million points. Golden Tate’s opening touchdown HAS to be a harbinger of what’s to come.
