Two sides to a coin

April 13, 2010

Are Tannenbaum and Woody dealing with the Devil?

Mike Tannenbaum’s acquisition of Santonio Holmes was just another piece towards bringing a Superbowl to Jets fans.  It began with the hiring of Rex Ryan, and over the last 12 months has included the drafting of Mark Sanchez, trades for Braylon Edwards and Antonio Cromartie, the swapping of LT for TJ and Brodney Poole for Kerry Rhodes, and the soon-to-be signing of Jason Taylor.  Mike Tannenbaum and Woody Johnson are stopping at nothing in ensuring the Jets have one of the elite teams on paper entering the 2010 season. 

All these bold moves, however, could come with a hefty price to pay.   Read the rest of this entry ?

Sleeping with the enemy

Jason Taylor could be a Jet

Free-agent Jason Taylor met with the Jets brass at Gang Green’s Florham Park facilities on Wednesday.  With Jay Feely leaving for the desert, the Jets have room to sign a free-agent, granted the contract is not worth more than $1.5 million a year.  

Gary Wichard, Taylor’s agent, stated that Rex Ryan called him last weekend and said Taylor was his No. 1 target in free agency.  The Jets need an outside pass rusher, and all indications point to Vernon Gholston being a complete bust.  Wichard further stated that Jason was very flattered by the respect the Jets showed and that he desperately wants to win a Superbowl and views the Jets as a contender.  Read the rest of this entry ?

Thomas Jones- A product of the Jets offensive line

March 16, 2010

Good luck in KC...you're gonna need it.

Since the Jets signed LaDainian Tomlinson, most people have stated their belief that LT is done and washed up.  Last season, Tomlinson ran for just over 700 yards and 12 TD’s, a far cry from his career year of 1,800 yards and 31 touchdowns in 2006.  Furthermore, he was hurt two out of the last three years and was used less and less in the San Diego offense.  Read the rest of this entry ?

Hakeem Nicks will lead Big Blue back to the promise land

Yes, we are 6 months away from football however, it is being reported that the right to host the first game at the New Meadowlands, Giants Stadium, Xanadu, whatever, belongs to…..THE NEW YORK FOOTBALL GIANTS!  The Giants will host Sunday afternoon and the Jets will have Monday Night Football.  Fair enough I guess.

Witnesses of the ceremonial coin toss were The Mara’s, The Johnson’s, Gov. Patterson, Giants Girl, Fireman Ed and the Miller High Life guy. LOL
