A sign of the times

December 3, 2009

Wayne Chrebet's alma-mater is dropping its football program

Hofstra University is dropping its football team, citing high costs and low interest from the college community.  

“The money is not coming in, and we’re putting too much out,” said university president Stuart Rabinowitz.  “The choice was painful but clear.”

He continued to add that low attendance, poor support from boosters, and overall costs of running a football program factored into the decision.  The announcement follows a two-year review of sports spending at Hofstra. Rabinowitz says there are no plans to cut any other sports at the Long Island school.

November 30, 2009

Head Coach Rex Ryan went from demoting safety Kerry Rhodes, to hugging him after Sunday’s win against the Panthers.

Rhodes, who played in only nickel and dime packages this week after starting since his rookie season (74 consecutive games), responded with two interceptions in the Jets’ 17-6 victory at The Meadowlands.

Revis Island: Do not enter

November 29, 2009

Darrelle Revis had two interceptions, including one for a touchdown

Darrelle Revis was the entire offense for the Jets most of the game, as he got the defense into the end zone for the first time this season. 

Revis returned one of the Jets’ four interceptions 67 yards for a touchdown as New York held on to beat the Carolina Panthers (4-7) 17-6 on Sunday. The Jets kept their slim playoff hopes alive, thanks to solid play from a defense that held Carolina to 176 yards of total offense.   The Jets won at home for the first time since beating the Titans in week three.

Jets looking to slay two-headed Monster

November 27, 2009

DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart will be tough to contain

The Jets, losers of 6 of their last 7, still have a lot to play for, and no I’m not talking about the playoffs.  With six games remaining, Gang Green may be on life support when it comes to their playoff chances, but they have a rookie QB who has some things to prove. 

Mark Sanchez became the first rookie Quarterback to win their first three games.  He was the talk of the town even before that, showing up at all the New York City hot spots, and doing a GQ spread before he ever did anything in the NFL.  Sanchez was anointed the second-coming of Joe Namath before even taking a snap.

Happy Feet Sanchez backpedaling

November 23, 2009

In today’s Newsday, Wallace Matthews remarks that Sanchez is regressing instead of progressing.  The Sanchise is coming off another five turnover game, and in the article Matthews states:

“Ten games into his pro career, the game is not slowing down for him, it is speeding up. Never did he look more like an overmatched rookie than on his fourth and final interception – but not turnover – of the day, when under pressure from three Patriots defenders, he blindly flipped the ball downfield like a man hoping to persuade a pack of hungry pit bulls to play “go fetch.”
