The Carolina Panthers essentially paid Steve Smith $5 million to go away.2014-11-13
Still, the story Ty Detmer told about his brother Koy faking a knee injury to land on injured reserve in 1997, a ruse apparently planned by the Philadelphia Eagles, is funny and pretty audacious too. The incentive to do that would be to hide Koy Detmer on injured reserve and use the 53rd spot on the roster for another player.
Via Deadspin and Off The Record, Ty Detmer told the story in a radio interview with Cheap Shots. You can hear Detmer tell the story at about 22:25 of the show.
"[Koy] came up to me like a couple days before that day and was like, 'Hey, they want me to go on injured reserve so they can keep me around, what do you think?' And I'm like, 'Well, if they're going to keep you around, you know I wouldn't not do it.' So that day before practice he comes up and he's like, 'OK, today's the day they told me.'
"So, we're kind of in team period at the end of practice and they're like, 'All right, Koy, you're in!' And so, he kind of goes in, runs a play, runs another play and then he looks at me and gives me this wink as he's stepping in to call the play. And so I'm like, trying not to laugh cause I'm like, 'How is this gonna go down, you know?' It's a running play. He hands off and as he's coming out after the hand off to carry out his bootleg fake, he goes down and rolls around and grabs his knee.'
"And oh man, you know, the whole practice kinda stops like, 'what happened?' And guys were coming up to me and, 'Oh man, is this the same knee he hurt at Colorado?' And I'm like, 'Yeah, I think so, I don't know, maybe he just, you know, twisted a little or something.' So they end up bringing the cart out and they cart him off the field. So, practice ends and I go into the training room, you know, and there he is laying on the training room table with a towel over his face and I just kind of raised the corner up and peeked and he's got this big old grin on his face. You know, like, 'How was that for my acting job?' I had to get out of there because I was about to just die laughing. And the rest of the team, you can't say anything because nobody is supposed to know."
That's not just a minor injury being sent to IR to get around the 53-man roster limit. What Ty Detmer is claiming is that his brother faked an injury, with the team plotting it, and put on a show for the team and media to sell it. Detmer said the media was out at practice when it happened, and that was by design. If this story sounds outlandish, like it's a lark by Ty Detmer, it's very detailed for him to be making it up. And Reuben Frank of CSN Philly, who has covered the Eagles since 1988, said on Twitter that he knew that story to be true not long after it happened.
Deadspin linked to a 1998 Philadelphia Daily News story in which a reference is made to when Koy Detmer "mysteriously aggravated a two-year-old knee injury." Ty Detmer said not even all the coaches were in on it, because, "back then you could get in big trouble" for that. Only a few people knew at the time what was going on. Ty Detmer said Koy Detmer even wore a brace and used crutches for a while to sell the story.
Detmer said Jon Gruden, then the Eagles' offensive coordinator, definitely was one of the coaches who was in on it.
"I'm sure Gruden does (know the story), because he told him it was time to take the dive," Ty Detmer said.
It's a great story, assuming that it's true and that Ty Detmer didn't make up an elaborate tale. It also leads you to wonder how often this type of thing has happened without anyone telling about it years later.

Early season AFC East battle, Pats visit the Jets 2010-09-17
Kickoff: Sunday, 4:15 p.m. EDT
Sportsbook.com Line: New England -3, Total: 38
Yet another underdog playing in front of their home crowd is under the football betting spotlight Sunday afternoon as the New York Jets (+3) host the New England Patriots.
The Jetsí offense was atrocious in Monday nightís 10-9 loss to Baltimore. They converted just 1-of-11 third downs, QB Mark Sanchez threw for 3.5 yards per attempt (10-21, 74 yds) and their time of possession was nearly doubled by Baltimoreís (NYJ-21:28, BAL-38:32). New York also committed 14 penalties costing them 125 yards and six first downs against the Ravens. And there is already a running back controversy about who will get more carries, Shonn Greene or LaDainian Tomlinson.
New Englandís offense had no such problems in its 38-24 win over Cincinnati. Tom Brady threw for 258 yards and three touchdowns, with two going to WR Wes Welker, playing despite last Decemberís major knee injury. The Patriots donít figure to put up 38 points against a Jets defense which allowed the fewest yards in the NFL in 2009, but New York will miss two of its better defensive players -- LB Calvin Pace (fractured foot) and NT Kris Jenkins (torn ACL).
Another storyline is Jets CB Darrelle Revis versus Patriots WR Randy Moss. Revis shut down Moss in the Jetsí 16-9 home win last season, but Revis is not at full speed yet because of his pre-season holdout. Revis played a limited role in the loss to Baltimore instead of covering the teamís top receiver. Coach Rex Ryan is expected to put Revis, despite hamstring tightness, back in his shut-down-corner role with his main duty of shadowing Moss. But even if Revis is effective at stopping Moss, Brady still has plenty of weapons in his arsenal to choose.
Since 1992, the Patriots are 11-6 ATS when the Jets host them in New York. And this time the Patriots get one more day of rest and preparation than the Monday-Night-Football-weary Jets do.
A couple key betting trends provide Patsí bettors with even more intel:
Play Against - Home teams where the line is +3 to -3 (NY JETS) - after 1 or more consecutive losses, in September games. (83-45 since 1983.) (64.8%, +33.5 units. Rating = 2*).
NY JETS are 3-14 ATS (-12.4 Units) in home games in the first two weeks of the season since 1992. The average score was NY JETS 17.3, OPPONENT 24.3 - (Rating = 2*).
Now that you have all the key numbers for the Patriots @ Jets game, head over to Sportsbook.com and place your wagers.
