Pacman Jones reportedly threatened David Nelson: ‘I’m going to find out where you live’

Pacman-Jones-Says-He-Was-too-Immature-With-TitansCincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones was unhappy with the way New York Jets wide receiver David Nelson played against him on Sunday. Pacman thought Nelson threw numerous cheap shots during the Bengals’ 49-9 blowout victory, one of which drew an unnecessary roughness penalty at the end of the third quarter.

“(Nelson) was playing dirty,” Jones said after the game. “He cut me like four times after the play. Thank God I took my medicine today, I guess, and I didn’t go off. Hopefully, he’ll get fined. At least three fines. There were three real cheap shots after the play.”

I doubt Nelson is going to be fined three times, but we get the point. Jones was furious. According to the NY Daily News, he was so angry that he may have crossed the line by threatening Nelson.

“I’m going to find out where you live and come and get you,” Jones reportedly told Nelson at one point during the game.

Pacman and Rex Ryan were also seen jawing at one point, and Pacman says Rex had told him to “shut the hell up.”

We’d have to see the game to know whether we agree with Pacman about Nelson playing dirty, though the officials obviously agreed on at least one play. Even if Nelson was throwing cheap shots, there’s a line you can’t cross with trash talking. Threatening someone like that would constitute crossing the line. Given Pacman’s incredibly long list of off-field issues, the last thing he should be doing is threatening to find out where someone lives.

Antonio Cromartie’s wife Terricka Cason rips New York Jets defense on Twitter during loss

Antonio-Cromartie-Terricka-CasonThe New York Jets lost by 40 points to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Rex Ryan’s team lost by a larger margin than the Jacksonville Jaguars, which has been a tough feat to accomplish this season. Everything that could go wrong for the Jets did in a game that they probably wish could have ended in the third quarter. And Antonio Cromartie’s wife Terricka Cason was not happy about it.

Cason was extremely outspoken on Twitter during the game. Andy Dalton somehow threw for a career-high five touchdown passes against a New York defense that has looked solid in recent weeks. Mrs. Cromartie summed their performance up nicely.

Hey, if the shoe fits. Terricka seems pretty knowledgeable about football based on some of her tweets, but she began getting bashed by followers after criticizing the Jets’ defense. She responded to some of her critics while scolding the team some more.

Flipper Anderson’s son was stoked Calvin Johnson did not break his dad’s receiving record

Calvin JohnsonFormer NFL wide receiver Flipper Anderson holds what seems like one of the most untouchable records in football. Calvin Johnson almost made it fall during Sunday’s win over the Dallas Cowboys.

In 1989, Anderson caught 15 passes for an incredible 336 yards during a game with the Los Angeles Rams. Megatron fell just seven yards short of that mark against Dallas, hauling in 14 catches for 329 yards. It was one of the most amazing single-game performances you will ever see. Flipper’s son Dres Anderson was relieved that his old man’s 336-yard game is still second to none.

I don’t blame Dres for wanting his dad’s record to hold up. When you make your mark on a professional sport like that, it’s only human nature to want it to remain permanent. It’s when you get into saying stuff like Mercury Morris says that it becomes obnoxious and uncalled for.

Mike Pouncey served grand jury subpoena after Dolphins game

Pouncey-brothers-free-Hernandez-hats

Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey was served a grand jury subpoena by Massachusetts State Police following his team’s 27-17 loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday.

Sports Illustrated reported the story and has a photo of Pouncey getting served inside Gillette Stadium after the game. The subpoena is believed to be related to the Aaron Hernandez case. SI says Dolphins officials were surprised by the subpoena and that not even Patriots owner Bob Kraft was aware of the police’s plans to serve Pouncey.

A grand jury has been meeting to gather more evidence related to Hernandez’s alleged crimes for potential prosecution. They reportedly were pushing for Hernandez to be charged for a 2012 drive-by shooting that left two dead. The former New England Patriots tight end was formally indicted by the grand jury in August for the murder of Lloyd.

Being subpoened by the grand jury does not mean Pouncey has done anything wrong nor that he will be charged with any crimes. He likely will be asked to contribute to the investigation of Hernandez. More specifically, SI says he may be asked about potential gun trafficking by Hernandez. SI reports that Hernandez is being investigated for potential interstate gun trafficking by at least three states — Massachusetts, Florida and New York.

Pouncey and his twin brother Maurkice were teammates and close friends of Hernandez at the University of Florida. In July, the brothers expressed their support of Hernandez by wearing “Free Hernandez” hats. Maurkice later apologized for wearing the hat, but Mike did not.

Dez Bryant and Jason Witten fight on sidelines (GIF)

Dez Bryant’s unstable emotions were on full display Sunday during the Dallas Cowboys’ 31-30 loss to the Detroit Lions.

Bryant caught just one pass in the first half of the game — a one-handed touchdown grab to make it 10-7 Dallas before halftime. He may have been upset about how little action he was seeing, because he had a meltdown on the sidelines late in the third quarter. He yelled at Tony Romo and some of his coaches. But after the Cowboys a 60-yard touchdown to go up 20-10, he seemed to be doing much better and even gave Romo a pat on the butt. Then he seemed thrilled after scoring a 50-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter to make it 27-17. But all those positive emotions quickly disappeared after the Cowboys blew the lead.

Dez Bryant Jason GarrettDespite being up 30-24 with 1:02 left, the Cowboys lost the game after allowing the Lions to go down the field and score the winning touchdown. As the game was slipping away from Dallas, Dez had another meltdown on the sidelines and was confronted by tight end Jason Witten, who tried putting him in check.

It was such a childish display by Dez. Is he the only player on the Cowboys? Is he the only guy who was furious that they blew the game? He sure acted like that was the case. And he also acted like the game was already over even though Witten was reminding him they still had time left.

Here was his meltdown on the sidelines earlier in the game:

Minnesota Vikings open to trading Jared Allen

Jared AllenJared Allen will be a free agent after the season, but he could be leaving the Minnesota Vikings sooner than that.

According to FOX NFL reporter Jay Glazer, the Vikings are open to dealing the pass-rushing star if they can get strong compensation. Glazer says the Vikings would be willing to deal Allen for “the right price” and that they’ve discussed it. Glazer also notes that any team that wants Allen would have to trade at least a third-round pick, because that’s what the Vikings would receive in compensation if Allen leaves in free agency.

The Vikings are 1-5 and have serious problems at the quarterback position. They know this season is over, so they’re figuring they might as well see if they can get something good for Allen. Allen has been in the league since 2004 and has recorded 78.5 sacks in 86 career games with the Vikings. He never missed a game for them since being obtained in a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs prior to the 2008 season. As he showed us with this sack on Monday night against the New York Giants, he still is one of the best defensive ends in the game.

Oklahoma Twitter takes shot at Kliff Kingsbury after win

The person running the Twitter account for the Oklahoma Sooners football team was probably just trying to be humorous when sending out a tweet after Oklahoma handed Texas Tech its first loss of the season, but the move backfired.

Shortly after Oklahoma beat the Red Raiders 38-30, the Sooners’ Twitter account sent out the tweet seen below, which was an obvious shot at Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury:

Oklahoma Twitter Kliff Kingsbury

Kingsbury’s reputation for being the best looking coach in the game precedes him, and Oklahoma thought it would be funny to zing him for that and the loss. They quickly deleted the tweet and obviously regretted it.

Texas Tech may no longer be undefeated, but they’ll be the first to tell you that their coach is hotter than yours.
