Players get cut all the time in the NFL. But until this season in Jacksonville I had never really heard of anyone being, uh, chopped.
Then the Jags fell to 0-3. And first year head coach Jack Del Rio had the (AAA battery) bright idea of reinforcing his "Keep Chopping Wood" message by placing a tree stump and a real-live axe in the middle of the team's locker room. (This is the NFL equivalent of Wil. E Coyote getting a package in the mail from ACME.)
