Channing Crowder

The Fins gave out the MVP award the other night.   And naturally they gave it out to Chad Pennington who was quite the team leader but not the MVP IMHO.  Joey Porter also got some props.  And I'll grant that he made a difference often in games.  But flashy stats don't always make for an MVP.
Then, this week, Crowder made a comment that Rex Ryan's Jets are the champions of the OTAs, and a battle of words ensued between them.  It was actually pretty funny hearing a player and a coach going at it through the media.
Channing runs his mouth a lot, so I expect it.  But for the coach to fire back says a lot about the way the team is going to be run.  With a bit of luck it will be total disarray, and the Jets will win 3 or 4 games.
One thing Rex did say was that the road to the AFC East went through New England.  And Crowder called him out for that transgression.  Miami WON THE EAST if memory serves me.  So, I would argue that it now runs through Miami until someone proves they're better.
