April Fools Headlines

Today is April Fools Day. What silly news items have you seen out there?

Happy April Fools Day, everyone! I have to apologize because we don't have any fake joke news for you today. We have done it in the past, and it was totally hilarious because we are very funny and clever around here, you know. But not this year. I have tried. I did come up with some very funny New York Jets and NFL headlines, but every time I started writing something too stupid to believe, I had to stop.

I realized they were actually true.

Here are some examples:

Journeyman Quarterback Fails to Take Team to Playoffs, Demands $16 Million the Following Season

Backup Linebacker Injures Starting Quarterback, Still Has Career in NFL, Even Becomes Team Captain

Quarterback Suspended by the NFL Plays Full Season Anyway and Goes to the Playoffs

Head Coach Tells Practice Squad to Ease Up on QB in Practice, QB Derides Their Practice Squad Checks

$72 Million Contract Given to Inexperienced Quarterback Benched for Ineffective Veteran

Buffalo Bills Hire Rex Ryan as Head Coach

What about you? Can you come up with some too stupid to believe headlines? Or have they already come true? Dun-dun-dun!
