Twitter reacts to Sam Darnold ‘seeing ghosts’ during Jets’ blowout loss to Patriots

Twitter reacts to Sam Darnold 'seeing ghosts' during Jets' blowout loss to PatriotsSeeing ghosts during a game is not a good thing New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold was seeing ghosts on Monday night against the New England Patriots. His words, not mine. This comes a few weeks after mononucleosis diagnosis sidelined Darnold. Seriously, this isn't a joke. Darnold said the words on the sideline and lucky for everyone who doesn't care about the Jets, the broadcast had the young QB mic'd up. Sam Darnold is mic’d up and he came to the sidelines and said, “I’m seeing ghosts.” (Via @ESPN) pic.twitter.com/9MoM6Rkmo5 — Dan Roche (@RochieWBZ) October 22, 2019 Of course, the internet took this low moment from Darnold and absolutely ran with it.

Jerry Jones addresses Urban Meyer ‘absolutely’ being open to coaching the Cowboys, status of Jason Garrett

Jerry Jones addresses Urban Meyer 'absolutely' being open to coaching the Cowboys, status of Jason GarrettWith an emphatic victory over the rival Eagles, the last thing Jones is thinking about is a coaching change Urban Meyer sure wouldn't mind seeing his phone light up soon with an incoming call from a Dallas area code, but the odds are greater it'll be a wrong number butt-dial than an offer from Jerry Jones to take over as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. Meyer famously made it known just ahead of the Cowboys' battle with the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 7 that he'd "absolutely" take the job in Dallas if he was asked, and you can't fault his timing when considering the team was in the throes of a three-game losing streak capped by a loss to the winless New York Jets. Jones had already made it clear at that time, however, the Cowboys had no willingness to send Garrett packing -- considering they were still tied atop the NFC East with lots of football..

NFL Week 8 picks, odds, schedule: Eagles fall to Bills for third-straight loss, unbeaten team goes down

NFL Week 8 picks, odds, schedule: Eagles fall to Bills for third-straight loss, unbeaten team goes downOne of the NFL's two remaining undefeated teams will get upset in Week 8 Not a shabby Week 7 of picks, if I do say so myself. After correctly hitting on 11 of my 14 game predictions in Week 6, I followed with another 11-3 week in Week 7. The Baltimore Ravens, Arizona Cardinals and Dallas Cowboys rewarded my faith in them, while the Houston Texans, Los Angeles Chargers and Chicago Bears prevented me from topping last week's success. Ready or not, here are my NFL Week 8 picks. Washington (1-6) at Minnesota (5-2)Thursday, 8:20 p.m. ET (Fox, NFL Network, Amazon Prime) Point spread: Vikings -16 After being hesitant with regard to picking the Vikings earlier this season, I'm drinking the purple and gold Kool-Aid until Minnesota gives me a reason to pick against them. While it's a short week, the Vikings should be sharp enough to beat a Redskins team that failed to sc..

XFL releases complete 2020 schedule for all eight teams, to begin immediately following Super Bowl 54

XFL releases complete 2020 schedule for all eight teams, to begin immediately following Super Bowl 54Where the AAF failed, the XFL is hoping to succeed when the NFL wraps up this season Football doesn't have to end when the NFL wraps up after the Super Bowl this season, or at least that's what the XFL wants you to buy into. The startup league will look for a mulligan this time around when it reboots its previously failed venture in 2020, and only one year after seeing the Alliance of American Football implode in spectacularly depressing fashion. Vince McMahon, billionaire maestro of the WWE and creator of the XFL, hopes joining forces with XFL commissioner and league CEO Oliver Luck will help to avoid the pitfalls that doomed the developmental pro league nearly two decades ago, and they're off to a solid start with funding and process, at least. They successfully executed their draft in late October that featured nearly 800 players tossing their name into the pool, and t..

Florida coach Dan Mullen expects key players back for rivalry showdown with Georgia

Florida coach Dan Mullen expects key players back for rivalry showdown with Georgia One of the biggest goals for No. 7 Florida's off week is to get healthy for the final stretch of the regular season as the Gators take aim at winning the SEC East and contending for an SEC Championship. So far, things appear to be moving in the right direction, at least according to Dan Mullen. The Gators coach said Tuesday that he expects to have a trio of stars back from injury when Florida returns to action against No. 10 Georgia in Jacksonville on Nov. 2. During a radio appearance on "SEC This Morning," Mullen was asked for status updates on defensive starters Jonathan Greenard and Jabari Zuniga as well as wide receiver Kadarius Toney. Greenard and Zuniga suffered ankle injuries in the Gators' loss to No. 2 LSU and just recently missed the win against South Carolina, while Toney has been out of the lineup since Week 2 dealing with a shoulder injury. "We expect those guys to be back," Mul..

Sam Darnold explains his ‘seeing ghosts’ revelation during Jets’ loss to Patriots

Sam Darnold explains his 'seeing ghosts' revelation during Jets' loss to PatriotsDarnold explained his quote -- and his performance -- during Monday night's shutout loss to the Patriots Sam Darnold's "seeing ghosts" comment in the midst of the New York Jets' 33-0 loss to the New England Patriots was one of the main talking points in the hours immediately following the game. Darnold, the Jets' second year quarterback, endured the worst game of his career to this point, going 11 of 32 for 86 yards with four interceptions. He also fumbled against the Patriots' top-ranked defense, a unit that has allowed just 48 points through seven games. Darnold, who was mic'd up by ESPN during Monday night's loss, was asked to clarify his "seeing ghosts" comments afterward. "I think for me, when I talk to the coaches, I just gotta be straight up," Darnold said, via Kimberly Jones of the NFL Network. "For me, I just gotta see the field a lot better. That..
