The Jets and Dolphins played one of the most pathetic football games you'll ever see last night. Despite winning, New York's performance might have been worse because it was actually trying. Miami clearly followed the "Suck For Luck" plan that's sweeping South Florida. Here are two examples of the Dolphins making their play for Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck. The first is wide receiver Brandon Marshall passing on an easy touchdown and going out of bounds instead. The second is four Miami defenders letting Santonio Holmes score a touchdown with linebacker Kevin Burnett (No. 56) not even attempting to run hard after Holmes or push him out of bounds.

Relax, Nick
Nick Saban got fed up with the media asking non-game questions at his press conference yesterday, which resulted this amusing rant. The best part is at the very end when Saban apologies and says, "This is a big game for me." Saban is referring to Alabama's contest against an awful Tennessee team Saturday, in which the Crimson Tide are 28-point favorites. There's really no need for him to be so uptight this week.
