This is why I’d have a hard time covering the NFL. Because as opposed to the Rangers, who can come right back tonight after Saturday’s debacle, a football schedule means scribes like me would have to come up with a full week’s worth of “what went wrong and what are you going to do about it” stories.
Instead, we have tonight to see how the Rangers respond to the latest in a string of setbacks. I will stop short of making any predictions.
As for news:
Meanwhile, the more likely return date for Avery is still Saturday, but as Tom Renney said, “I don’t have Thursday circled, but he probably has it circled in felt pen.” In other words, Avery could make a case to return against the Caps.
