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.

Shootout in the Desert

January 10, 2010

Matt Moulson beats Jason LaBarbera for the game-winner in the shootout

In one of the strangest games of the season, the Islanders won the game 5-4 in their fourth shootout in the past 7 games. Matt Moulson nabbed the second point for the Islanders after going top shelf to end a 2-2 stalemate in the sixth round.

For all the drama the shootout normally brings,  however, it was pretty anticlimactic compared to what happened in regulation, particularly the second period.

St. John’s falls to Louisville

January 10, 2010

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – St. John’s thought that this would be the season that it would get back to contending with the Big East’s elite teams, and a strong start provided hope. But the Red Storm’s dreams seem on the brink of splintering, and maybe so is the team.

The Johnnies lost to Louisville, 75-68, Saturday, falling to 0-3 in conference play while losing for the fourth time in the last five games. And the losing is clearly taking its toll.

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.

Welcome back

January 7, 2010

St. John’s redshirt senior Anthony Mason Jr.’s highly-anticipated return to the court is expected to be made on Saturday as St. John’s takes on Louisville.  Mason Jr. has yet to see game action in his redshirt senior season, as his original return was delayed twice.  

Mason Jr. was cleared to practice on Monday, Dec. 27, by orthopedist Answorth Allen, M.D., team doctor to the Red Storm and the New York Knicks of the NBA, when a Cybex computer test on his leg that confirmed the hamstring muscle has returned to full strength. The St. John’s coaching staff determined that Mason Jr. is now game-ready based on his performance level at team practices and his level of fitness.

Top 10 NY Sports Moments of 2009

December 30, 2009

...where dreams are made of

As 2009 comes to a close, and Luis Castillo drops the ball  in Times Square, we reflect on those moments (good or bad) in the past year that made New York sports entertaining, frustrating, and memorable.  Players went down, new players arrived, and even a Championship was won for the city.  Tears were shed, fans jumped for joy, and in a time of recession sports provided us with an outlet to escape.

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.
