Remember the Titans

Jets Rumors & News

The Tennessee Titans came into today’s game playing for their playoff lives. They got help from the Bengals earlier in the day as they defeated the Browns 19 – 14. That meant, with a victory, Tennessee would be in control of their own destiny, needing only to defeat the Colts in week 17 to get into the playoffs as the last AFC Wild Card team.

The Knicks are a moribund franchise and Thomas has provided only embarrassment, not improvement, during his four years with the team.

“The night we won the World Series, I wanted to die. I didn’t want to live. On the night that you would think was a big, happy celebration night, I wanted to die because my emotional state was in such disarray that I started thinking about suicide.””This is a story of a boyhood dream turning into a living nightmare. I had ruined my life, but at what cost?”

“Nobody ever told me, “Do whatever you need to do to gain weight.” Nobody ever said, “If you’ve got to take drugs, man, take ’em.” What everybody said was, “You’re 6-6. Put on 50 pounds and you’ll throw …
