“I was getting information from everywhere once my name started getting out there, I would have to let some information not even be posted until I knew they were a real source.” he told me. “And I’ve met probably over four or five guys that are involved as scouts in the NHL. I’ve got one guy who was a defensive coordinator. He was my source for an NFL team. He just took a job in Buffalo so you probably know who it is. I just probably broke some news on your site, right now.” If former Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, who was recently hired by the Bills, is indeed a Bob-source, then we probably did. (We've asked Buffalo for comment on this, and will update if and when they respond.)
“He was the one…they thought they had Nnamdi.” Bob said, in the sort of shorthand that assumes I know (as I do) that Bob stated with characteristic certainty that Nnamdi Asomugha, then a free agent and now as then a cornerback, would be signing with the Jets. “Everyone gets on me—oh, you missed the Nnamdi thing. Well, you know what? Every media guy missed it as well. The source at the Jets said, ‘He’s not signing with the Cowboys. So if it’s not the Cowboys, it’s us.’ Nobody had Philly. I’m in the rumor business. Of course you’re going to miss some. Some other guys don’t do it because they’re affiliated with big stations. They can’t put their stuff out on the line. I can because I don’t give a crap."
