The word has been on my mind since Monday, when I read a story about which NFL teams are most hated in each state. Every once in a while we need a reality check.
Rex Ryan has faced plenty of calls for his ouster during another trying season for the Jets. After his big gamble in overtime against Minnesota went bust, he’s sure to hear some more.
Gang Green loses a 30-24 heart breaker to the Minnesota Vikings in overtime.
Brash and bold, Rex Ryan became a media darling while leading the New York Jets to back-to-back AFC title games.
The NFL announced Friday that longtime hearing officer Harold Henderson will preside over the proceedings. Goodell has the authority to decide whether to hear the appeal himself or appoint someone else.
In an interview with USA Today, Peterson said he believes Vikings coaches and players are behind him but that feelings in the organization are mixed after he was charged with felony child abuse.

Peterson’s potential return to the Vikings is at the heart of a dispute between the NFL and the players’ association, and the star running back thinks the league is being unfair.
A person with knowledge of the hearing told The Associated Press on Thursday that Adrian Peterson will meet with the NFL early next week about possible reinstatement with the Minnesota Vikings.
If Adrian Peterson is allowed to return to the Minnesota Vikings this season, the reunion won’t happen swiftly.
Minnesota Vikings star Adrian Peterson will avoid jail time after reaching a plea agreement in his child-abuse case.
Peterson allegedly told a worker conducting his urinalysis exam during a Wednesday court appearance that “he smoked a little weed.”
Peterson did not enter a plea, though his attorney said he will eventually plead not guilty to the charge that carries a penalty of up to two years in prison.
Prosecutor Phil Grant declined to comment Tuesday on whether the case could be settled without a trial. If convicted, Peterson faces up to two years in prison.
It was another Thursday night blowout, as the Packers dominated the Vikings 42-10 last night in Green Bay. The Packers moved to 3-2, while Minnesota is 2-3, struggling on offense without Teddy Bridgewater, who was inactive with a sprained ankle.
