The Carolina Panthers essentially paid Steve Smith $5 million to go away.2014-11-13
Still, the story Ty Detmer told about his brother Koy faking a knee injury to land on injured reserve in 1997, a ruse apparently planned by the Philadelphia Eagles, is funny and pretty audacious too. The incentive to do that would be to hide Koy Detmer on injured reserve and use the 53rd spot on the roster for another player.
Via Deadspin and Off The Record, Ty Detmer told the story in a radio interview with Cheap Shots. You can hear Detmer tell the story at about 22:25 of the show.
"[Koy] came up to me like a couple days before that day and was like, 'Hey, they want me to go on injured reserve so they can keep me around, what do you think?' And I'm like, 'Well, if they're going to keep you around, you know I wouldn't not do it.' So that day before practice he comes up and he's like, 'OK, today's the day they told me.'
"So, we're kind of in team period at the end of practice and they're like, 'All right, Koy, you're in!' And so, he kind of goes in, runs a play, runs another play and then he looks at me and gives me this wink as he's stepping in to call the play. And so I'm like, trying not to laugh cause I'm like, 'How is this gonna go down, you know?' It's a running play. He hands off and as he's coming out after the hand off to carry out his bootleg fake, he goes down and rolls around and grabs his knee.'
"And oh man, you know, the whole practice kinda stops like, 'what happened?' And guys were coming up to me and, 'Oh man, is this the same knee he hurt at Colorado?' And I'm like, 'Yeah, I think so, I don't know, maybe he just, you know, twisted a little or something.' So they end up bringing the cart out and they cart him off the field. So, practice ends and I go into the training room, you know, and there he is laying on the training room table with a towel over his face and I just kind of raised the corner up and peeked and he's got this big old grin on his face. You know, like, 'How was that for my acting job?' I had to get out of there because I was about to just die laughing. And the rest of the team, you can't say anything because nobody is supposed to know."
That's not just a minor injury being sent to IR to get around the 53-man roster limit. What Ty Detmer is claiming is that his brother faked an injury, with the team plotting it, and put on a show for the team and media to sell it. Detmer said the media was out at practice when it happened, and that was by design. If this story sounds outlandish, like it's a lark by Ty Detmer, it's very detailed for him to be making it up. And Reuben Frank of CSN Philly, who has covered the Eagles since 1988, said on Twitter that he knew that story to be true not long after it happened.
Deadspin linked to a 1998 Philadelphia Daily News story in which a reference is made to when Koy Detmer "mysteriously aggravated a two-year-old knee injury." Ty Detmer said not even all the coaches were in on it, because, "back then you could get in big trouble" for that. Only a few people knew at the time what was going on. Ty Detmer said Koy Detmer even wore a brace and used crutches for a while to sell the story.
Detmer said Jon Gruden, then the Eagles' offensive coordinator, definitely was one of the coaches who was in on it.
"I'm sure Gruden does (know the story), because he told him it was time to take the dive," Ty Detmer said.
It's a great story, assuming that it's true and that Ty Detmer didn't make up an elaborate tale. It also leads you to wonder how often this type of thing has happened without anyone telling about it years later.
NFL Titans Owner Bud Adams, Foolish Club Member, Dies at 902013-10-22
Adams helped found the American Football Live Betting Lines nfl football betting Online Bingo NFL Betting Lines
Football League 54 years ago as a member of the self-proclaimed Foolish Club of eight men whod been denied NFL franchises. His Houston Oilers won two AFL titles before the leagues merged in 1966.
In 1995, after a feud with Houston over using public money for a new stadium, Adams reached an agreement to move the team to Tennessee, renaming the club beginning in the 1999 season.
Adams death comes three days after that of former Oilers coach Bum Phillips, also 90. Phillips led the Oilers to two American Football Conference championship games.
Adams served in the Navy during World War II before founding the ADA Oil Company, a forerunner of Adams Resources & Energy Inc. (AE) His wife of 62 years, Nancy, died in 2009. They had two daughters, Susie Smith and Amy Strunk; a son, Kenneth S. Adams III, who is deceased; and seven grandchildren.

NFL begins deploying mobile electronic health records and brain imaging systems2013-08-20
Boys will be boys. At least that's what my husband tells me every time he tries to "help" in the kitchen (something inevitably breaks or someone gets hurt). Football is like that, but...intensified. Players, especially professional players, bring everything they have to the game, and the result is that someone is likely to get hurt.
Unlike Husband's kitchen help, where the result might be a small cut or a missing chunk of meat, NFL players can get really hurt. Really, really badly hurt. We're talking everything from broken bones to brain injuries.
Concussions, which are now generally called mild traumatic brain injuries (or MTBI), are relatively common in football. After all, players bash into each other, kind of like two buffaloes battling head-to-head. More serious brain injuries also occur, and the NFL is looking at the question of not only how to treat these injuries, but also their long-term effects on players.
One team, the Buffalo Bills, has decided to step up their game a notch. The Bills are partnering with medical imaging firm Carestream to explore how to manage, treat, prevent, and diagnose these sorts of injuries immediately -- right on the field.
As Seth Voorhees in Rochester's Your News Now reports, Carestream is developing an X-ray imaging machine that will be located at the Bills' home stadium, and another device that's portable and can go on the road with the team.
In a related story, the Boston Globe reports, that the NFL has entered into a multi-million dollar, multi-year contract with eClinicalWorks to provide electronic health records, "X-rays, blood test results, physical exam notes, medications even video clips documenting a game injury in one online server that players and physicians could access from anywhere in the country."
It's good to know that as our favorite teams are out their fighting for the honor of their fans and home cities, medical professionals are standing by to help care for them when they get hurt. It's kind of a shame the sport is so violent, but I guess touch football doesn't make for nearly as compelling TV
However, the implications of this sort of technology for the rest of the population are encouraging. Why? Because sometimes when solutions like this are implemented and tested in specific situations, similar solutions wind up being implemented in the world of the rest of us. Also, the data on MTBIs that will be gathered in this particular high-risk sports arena might help us learn more about how they heal over time and how to treat them in general.

Early season AFC East battle, Pats visit the Jets 2010-09-17
Kickoff: Sunday, 4:15 p.m. EDT
Sportsbook.com Line: New England -3, Total: 38
Yet another underdog playing in front of their home crowd is under the football betting spotlight Sunday afternoon as the New York Jets (+3) host the New England Patriots.
The Jets’ offense was atrocious in Monday night’s 10-9 loss to Baltimore. They converted just 1-of-11 third downs, QB Mark Sanchez threw for 3.5 yards per attempt (10-21, 74 yds) and their time of possession was nearly doubled by Baltimore’s (NYJ-21:28, BAL-38:32). New York also committed 14 penalties costing them 125 yards and six first downs against the Ravens. And there is already a running back controversy about who will get more carries, Shonn Greene or LaDainian Tomlinson.
New England’s offense had no such problems in its 38-24 win over Cincinnati. Tom Brady threw for 258 yards and three touchdowns, with two going to WR Wes Welker, playing despite last December’s major knee injury. The Patriots don’t figure to put up 38 points against a Jets defense which allowed the fewest yards in the NFL in 2009, but New York will miss two of its better defensive players -- LB Calvin Pace (fractured foot) and NT Kris Jenkins (torn ACL).
Another storyline is Jets CB Darrelle Revis versus Patriots WR Randy Moss. Revis shut down Moss in the Jets’ 16-9 home win last season, but Revis is not at full speed yet because of his pre-season holdout. Revis played a limited role in the loss to Baltimore instead of covering the team’s top receiver. Coach Rex Ryan is expected to put Revis, despite hamstring tightness, back in his shut-down-corner role with his main duty of shadowing Moss. But even if Revis is effective at stopping Moss, Brady still has plenty of weapons in his arsenal to choose.
Since 1992, the Patriots are 11-6 ATS when the Jets host them in New York. And this time the Patriots get one more day of rest and preparation than the Monday-Night-Football-weary Jets do.
A couple key betting trends provide Pats’ bettors with even more intel:
Play Against - Home teams where the line is +3 to -3 (NY JETS) - after 1 or more consecutive losses, in September games. (83-45 since 1983.) (64.8%, +33.5 units. Rating = 2*).
NY JETS are 3-14 ATS (-12.4 Units) in home games in the first two weeks of the season since 1992. The average score was NY JETS 17.3, OPPONENT 24.3 - (Rating = 2*).
