The Jets acquire Antonio Cromartie

March 4, 2010

Mike Tannenbaum has worked his magic yet again. 

The New York Jets, according to various sources, traded their 2011 third-round pick to the San Diego Chargers for cornerback Antonio Cromartie late Thursday night.  The pick can become a second rounder based on Cromartie’s playing time and performance with Gang Green. 

Did the NFL’s best defense just get better?  Or are we looking at Lito Shepphard 2.0? Read the rest of this entry ?

In Mr.T we trust….

Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum is rolling sevens

The play was a roll-out to the right, with the Jets down 7-3 and facing 3rd and goal from the Chargers one yard-line.  Rookie Mark Sanchez scrambled, was given time thanks to a great block from fellow rookie Shonn Greene, and the Sanchise threw a bullet to second-year tight end Dustin Keller in the back of the end zone.  Completed pass…touchdown….Jets led 10-7.

Jet Streams: Initial thoughts on Jets-Colts

January 19, 2010

I never would have imagined that my Jets would be in this position — one win away from the Superbowl.  Furthermore, the Islanders are looking like a playoff team, St. John’s is back in the Big East hunt, and the Mets….well, 3 out 4 ain’t bad! 

Fresh off an unbelievable win in San Diego, Gang Green will travel to Indianapolis to face Peyton Manning and the Colts.  From 4-6,  and later what was thought to be a devastating loss to the Falcons, the Jets now look to continue to shock the world. 

This will be ANOTHER  huge challenge for the NFL’s top ranked defense as Peyton Manning may be the best QB to ever play the game.    He has plenty of weapons — Wayne, Clarke, Garcon — and even Joey Addai could present problems for New York’s D as they did give up 170 yards to Cedric Benson two weeks ago. 

I have laid out my 10 thoughts, or keys to the game as the Jets look to continue this dream season for a fan base that continues to walk on air.

Jets shock the Chargers

January 17, 2010

Maybe people should start respecting the Jets….

Everyone laughed when just a few weeks ago Rex Ryan declared his Jet team the Super Bowl favorites.  I guess Rex isn’t so crazy anymore. 

The Jets are still playing, and the Chargers once again failed when it counted.

Jets-Chargers Preview

January 16, 2010

Kerry Rhodes, Revis and the rest of the Jets look to keep their 'swag' going

Momentum is huge in any sport, and on Sunday both the Jets and Chargers will enter their Divisional Playoff game with plenty.  San Diego has won 11 straight and possesses one of the most lethal offenses in the sport.  Moreover, Gang Green has won 6 of 7, and their top ranked defense has given up just 8.7 ppg in those last 7 games.

Woodson? Defensive Player of the Year?

January 12, 2010

…you tell him Kanye.

Green Bay Packer cornerback Charles Woodson beat out Darrelle Revis for NFL Defensive Player of the Year, according to the Associated Press. 

Woodson, in voting by a national panel of 50 sportswriters and broadcasters, is only the second Green Bay Packer to win in the 36-year history of the award.

Jet streams: Initial thoughts on Jets/Chargers

January 11, 2010

 

Thanks to a pathetic performance by the New England Patriots, Gang Green will travel to San Diego on Sunday to take on Philip Rivers, Vincent Jackson, Antonio Gates, LaDainian Tomlinson, Shawne Merriman (I could go on…) and the rest of the Chargers. 

This will be a huge challenge for the NFL’s top ranked pass defense as Rivers is the hottest QB in the league and he has three legit weapons — WRs Vincent Jackson and Malcolm Floyd and TE Antonio Gates.   Furthermore, LaDainian Tomlinson and Darren Sproles could present some problems on the ground. 

I have laid out my 10 thoughts, or keys to the game as the Jets look to continue this dream season for a fan base that hasn’t had much to be excited about in recent years.

Who dey!?

January 10, 2010

We see you Mark Sanchez....

 

What do the haters and bitter Giant fans have to say now? 

All week, Jet fans listened to how their defense was overrated, the Bengals laid down for them last week, and Sanchez would not be able to make plays against the “stifling” Cincinnati defense.  

With their rookie quarterback playing mistake-free football, the New York Jets turned their surprising playoff appearance into a long-running production and silenced the doubters. 

Mark Sanchez handled single-degree wind chills and the playoff pressure with no problems Saturday, throwing a touchdown pass on a rollout play, and the NFL’s top running game took it from there, setting up a 24-14 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. 

Sanchez went 12 of 15 for 182 yards, becoming the fourth rookie quarterback since 1950 to start and win a playoff game. 

Ladies and gentlemen, Mark Sanchez has arrived.

J-E-T-S: Just extend the season

January 8, 2010

Rex Ryan thinks the Jets should be favorites to win the whole thing

The Jets for the fifth time this decade qualified for the playoffs and will face Chad Johnson, Carson Palmer and the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday. 

Coach Marvin Lewis said he simplified their game plan against the New York Jets in the regular-season finale. Even a complex scheme, though, might falter if his team gets pushed around again.

Vote Revis ’09

December 30, 2009

Darrelle Revis deserves Defensive Player of the Year

Escaping Revis Island in 2009 has been a daunting task for opposing wide receivers.  

“I went back and looked and I was going to be subtle about this, but if Revis is not the NFL Defensive Player of the Year, something is wrong with the system,” Rex Ryan said. “Nobody, and I mean nobody, in maybe the history of the game has had the challenges that he’s faced week in and week out.” 

Darrelle Revis, who has six interceptions and an NFL-leading 36 passes defended in his third season, has routinely shut down opposing teams’ top receivers such as New England’s Randy Moss, Buffalo’s Terrell Owens, Carolina’s Steve Smith and Houston’s Andre Johnson.  Even in what Revis described as his worst game of the season, he held Reggie Wayne to two catches for 21 yards when the Colts starters were in the game.
