Derrick Rose pointed out earlier Tuesday that he's been healthy for the longest stretch of his career since his first knee injury in 2012. "Knock on wood, I haven't had anything. It's a blessing and I'm just happy to have a chance to play with this great franchise with these great guys." Yes, Rose physically knocked on wood after mentioning the injury note today.

Carmelo Anthony agreed with the idea that he has a different mindset with this Knicks club than in years past. "I think we believe that we can win basketball games now. We have to put that into fruition." Anthony has said he's never played with a PG like Derrick Rose. If things go well, he should get easier shots in this offense.

Injured Jets WR Eric Decker, a close friend of Ryan Fitzpatrick, suggested the long contract stalemate may have fueled Fitzpatrick's post-game venting against team brass. Decker: "Throughout the offseason, I think it was hard for him, just trying to gauge the interest, I guess, maybe the Jets had or what their plan was going forward in getting him in the facility to start the season. ... Whether it's some feelings on the process or what was said throughout that maybe led to some of the emotions he had at this point." (Courtesy: Hahn & Humpty Show, ESPN NY radio.)

How's Derrick Rose feeling before his Knicks debut? "I'm anxious, nervous a little bit. But usually when I feel those emotions something good will come out of it, so this is just a new beginning for me. And I can't wait."

The Giants' release of PK Josh Brown accomplishes nothing but the deserved rejection of a domestic abuser. The most significant takeaway from this episode is that the NFL is a long way from effectively addressing the issue within its policies and purview. The primary question is unanswered: Can the NFL find a way to demonstrate -- not say it, but show it -- that domestic violence is intolerable?

In the official announcement of Josh Brown's release, Giants owner John Mara said, "We believed we did the right thing at every juncture in our relationship with Josh. Our beliefs, our judgments were misguided. We accept that responsibility."
