False. It's nice to see UMass Alumns have success, but no Patriots fan supports the Jets. Seriously, that's just stupid.

Even more false. Who the hell cares. The Patriots and Jets are bitter rivals, you just don't root for your rivals under any circumstance. You think any Red Sox fan was rooting for the Yankees when Ron Villone was in NY? Please.
Like i said its up to you whether you want to root for the UMass guys and the Jets to beat Pittsburgh. My Pats fans/UMass bros seem to all be rooting for the Jets and the UMass guys to win now that the Pats are out of the playoffs. I had several call me to congratulate me and tell me they were rooting for the Jets to finallly get back to the SB and for Ihedigbo to make some big plays. If you want to see the Steelers yet again - then thats your choice - but I think alot of folks especially in the UMass community are pulling for James and the Jets.

Perhaps this has been posted before but it's nice to know that Ihedigbo's base salary for 2010 is 1.1 million dollars. I don't know how much more he earns for the playoffs.

James was interviewed this morning on the Boomer and Carton program on WFAN. He was very well spoken (although I wish he could rid himself of the "Ya Knows") in this 8 minute interview. If you want to hear it, go to cbslocal.com and scroll down about half way and then click on to his interview. Enjoy, especially to you Jets fans.

Also for those interested James has himself one helluva a sweet Website - pretty killer graphics and audio

http://www.jamesihedigbo.com/


Here is a pretty sick highlight video of James when he was w/UMASS #7 Certainly kicked much ass when he played at UMASS - its like a man against boys on some of these highlights - especially when he rag dolled armenti edwards in the Championship game.

The musoc on this thing is annoying however and you'll have to mute it unless you want your ears to bleed.

Is James the only player in the NFL to have played with 2 murderers?

if you mean they didn't have to be charged or convicted, just murdered a couple of people, I would guess no.
All due respect, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart, I'm gonna pass.

James is in a tight fight for a starting safety spot for the Ravens.

Right if you want to include actually killing a guy then anyone on the 2012 Patriots would qualify. Remember Stallworth was also on that team, albeit briefly.

Diggs doesn't play that way...I'm sure he put his hand on the guy, and I'm sure in the process of that he got his hands on his neck - the pictures out there show as much - but he didn't outright choke him. If he had, others would have quickly noticed and dealt out some cowboy justice immediately.

Really what happened is that they got in a scrap, Lewis had his hands on Diggs, including grabbing and holding onto his facemask, and Diggs had his hands on him in return. Shit happens.

its cute that Ihedigbo acted shocked when the offseason video came out but he's choking peeps in a pile. What a fraud. From the 'zoomass' on national TV to this, Ihedigbo does nothing but annoy me.
