Justice found Ray Rice Monday. The hypocrisy of professional sports will eventually save him, for nobody is ever gone for long in the play-for-pay game.
Let the Giants season begin. How it ends, nobody knows. But starting off with a win would bring a lot of peace to a lot of minds, not the least of which belongs to Tom Coughlin.
But the reality is that this team may not be capable of any such feat. It’s actually a near miracle that their proximity to the last wild card will make for a meaningful September.
The common feeling a few weeks back was that Terry Collins was pretty much a lock to return as the Mets’ skipper, barring a total collapse. As they have only gotten worse since then, the front office might have to revisit that stance.
He’s purely a run-stopper, as most middle linebackers of today are. But he is also no stranger to dropping back into the short zone on pass defense.
As silly as it may be, rest assured that Kelley’s teammates would kill him right now if he tossed that stupid rubber thing in the trash.
Nobody is ever going to blame yet another lost season on Wright alone, but there is no denying he’s had some major problems throughout this 61-70 catastrophe. And now he’s hurt again.
Hill is the real question mark in this game, not because of his immediate future, but because of his long-range outlook. He’s a roster lock, but this is his last year as such.
This lineup has got to go, at all costs. Guys like Castro and Stanton have got to be looking like attractive targets right now, regardless of money or the talent outlay to get them.
Although the performance against Indy has led to widespread consternation about Manning and his first-unit group, one must understand that McAdoo is keeping things under wraps.
Mets brass has gone halfway with Collins, and that beats the heck out of the alternative. But they’ll do him an even greater service by actually spending some money this offseason.
The Yanks still have hope, and thus they’re rushing a pitcher back from the DL. The Mets, as usual, think about next year with a prize prospect. It’s like night and day.
Another sprain or pop could ruin the fate of the secondary in what long ago became a pass-first league. If that happens, 2014 might turn into a long, long season.
Given the Bombers’ issues, winning this series against Detroit’s All-World guns is sort of like the Boy Scouts beating up a SWAT team.
By the time the Jennings-Williams rotation shows any results worth serious analysis, Wilson and his short career will be far from anyone’s mind. Football is cold-hearted that way.
