Danny Kanell has made it no secret he thinks the sport of football is becoming weaker by the day. Kanell spits in the face at times of what he perceives to be a war on football any time the topic of CTE issues in the game are brought up. The former Florida State and NFL quarterback has been through the rigors of the football world on levels many of us could only dream of, so his opinions are not without a first-hand experience to fall back on, however it is fair to suggest Kanell sometimes goes a little bit too far to one extreme when it comes to the game’s physical elements in today’s more modern world.

A look at the possible scenarios atop the AFC: Scenario One: Patriots win Doesn't matter what happens with Denver or Cincinnati. The Pats will have the No. 1 seed. Scenario Two: Patriots lose, Broncos win, Bengals win

t might have hit him when he was flying in a helicopter over Panama City, or zip lining through the forest in Nicaragua. Perhaps it was when he was hiking up a volcano or kayaking in Guatemala. Realistically, it was probably in Belize. Not when he was snorkeling with nurse sharks and sting rays in the barrier reef. It was more likely while he was sitting and staring out at the serene setting that was the Caribbean Sea. Steven Jackson had plenty of time over the past year to think about his next move. He might not have had all the answers, but it was in February, during a 24-day excursion through Central America, when he came up with the conclusion that football might still be an option in 2015.

Thank the moon CBS did not call on Mike Carey for analysis of Matthew Slater’s decision to kick to the Jets after New England won that overtime coin toss. Dan Fouts already had us confused enough. Then again, Fouts was only trying to explain the unexplainable. After the coin toss replay aired, Fouts reasoned Slater made the call because the Pats “always defer” when they win the toss. “So you think it’s muscle memory?” Ian (The Bird) Eagle asked his partner. Okay, here’s where Fouts, in an attempt to further explain what went down, took eyeballs down a dark alley. “It could be (muscle memory). But the other thing there is (referee Clete) Blakeman said: ‘You want to kick?’ before the Patriots said, ‘We want to kick.’ ” Eagle: “Uh, I think Slater was ready to change his mind and Blakeman said: ‘You already said you want to kick.’”

When you have Tom Brady as your quarterback and Rob Gronkowski as your tight end, you usually want to put the game in their hands to win it. But Bill Belichick said everything you need to know about his confidence in the Patriots’ offense with his decision to kick off at the start of overtime. “Looking at field position,” Belichick said in a terse news conference following the 26-20 loss to the Jets on Sunday.

Fans who saw the moment and were confused share at least one thing in common with Brandon Marshall. The New York Jets and New England Patriots were about to start overtime. New England won the coin toss, so Marshall was already thinking of pumping up his defense. They needed to stop Patriots quarterback Tom Brady with playoff implications looming.

The Patriots gave the Jets the ball, and New York might carry it right into the playoffs. Eric Decker's 6-yard touchdown catch on the first drive of overtime - after New England stunningly chose to kick off - lifted the Jets to a 26-20 victory Sunday that put New York in position to make the playoffs. A win next week at Buffalo gives the Jets a wild-card berth. ''It was thrilling,'' Decker said. ''Those are the moments that you cherish.'' New England (12-3) won the OT coin toss and elected to kick to the Jets (10-5). Patriots coach Bill Belichick (BeliKICK?) said there was ''no confusion'' on the call; he'd done it once before in 2013, but a hefty wind was involved against Denver. That decision worked, this one flopped.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski played with a heavy heart in Sunday's 33-16 victory over the Tennessee Titans, dedicating the game and his first-quarter touchdown to his late friend and trainer Dana Parenteau. When Gronkowski caught a 5-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter, he thrust both of his arms into the air.

The #Deflategate drama has a lengthy cast of characters. One of the fringe players has weighed in with a strong argument in support of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Or, more accurately, in opposition to the NFL. Professor Robert Blecker, a lawyer and law school professor with a “scholarly and moral interest in cheating and the integrity of law and sport,” has submitted a third-party brief in the pending federal appeal of the case that scrapped Brady’s four-game suspension. Dubbed an amicus curiae brief (Latin for “friend of the court” . . . not, as I learned many years ago, “cure for mice”), Blecker’s 34-page submission purports to explore issues that neither the NFL nor Brady address “relating to the integrity of sport and the proper limits of investigation and arbitral adjudication necessary to protect it.” In other words, Blecker takes aim at the entire process that resulted in Brady’s four-game suspension for alleged involvement in a supposed scheme to deflate footballs.

Here's the most important thing to remember before we judge Wes Welker's return to the NFL: We're not in his head. And thank God for that. Welker is back after signing a one-year deal with the Rams, who need a receiver because Stedman Bailey was suspended four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy. In effect, the Rams replaced one health problem with another, swapping Bailey's unspecified drug issues for Welker's history of concussions, because lest we forget, the NFL doesn't care about its players (or their girlfriends, but that's another story) one iota.
