You'd likely come down with a case of the bends digging for a bright spot the Jets could hang their helmets on.
Inserted in the game to put pressure on Tom Brady, Ihedigbo did his job for a national television audience to see.
He sprinted from the end and drilled Tom Brady into the ground with feeling.
In a game marked by one disaster after another, Ihedigbo's sack was worth pointing out.
James is one of us. A local kid who played his college football at UMass. And it was great to see him get his moment in the national limelight.
