Was my prediction homerism?
No. I didn't like the moves that the Jets were making with personnel. Now, let's be clear, I don't think that Rex has lost his locker room. I
Two weeks before the season started, the Colts signed the retired Kerry Collins for 4 million after learning that Peyton Manning would miss at least three months of the season. This move was not popular in the Colt locker room, where even the rarely headling making Reggie Wayne called out his teams front office for the move.
