Now this is really funny. Joe Horn, who was fined $30,000 two seasons ago for using a cell phone during a touchdown celebration, wants Falcons head coach Jim Mora Jr. docked the same amount for using a cell phone during Saturday's overtime loss to the Bucs. According to NFL spokesman Greg Aiello, " ... the use of cell phones on the sidelines is prohibited." Luckily, Joe Horn wants to make it clear that he has nothing against Mora:
""I want $30,000 ... I'm not trying to player-hate Coach Mora, but it shouldn't be a double-standard league. A player gets fined, then a coach should get fined under any circumstances."
Shouldn't that be "coach-hate" Coach Mora? Or "player-hatin'-coach" Coach Mora? Just asking.

Just in case Sunday night did not make it clear, defense rules the NFL in 2016. The best teams in overall DVOA all combine top-five defenses with below-average offenses. The Eagles now lead the league in both defense and special teams and are back to No. 1 overall.
