Proud of the Jets

January 25, 2010

For a franchise that hasn’t been to a Superbowl in over 40 years, it is not easy to just say “we’ll get ’em next year.”   Yes, nobody expected Gang Green to be in this position, but these opportunities do not come every season (just ask Dan Marino.)

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.

Patriot Games: Jets tussel with the Brady Bunch in Foxborough

November 20, 2009

Patriots coach Bill Belichick has been the talk of the NFL and blogs this week following his controversial fourth-down call that led to a disheartening defeat.  His critics around Foxborough may be willing to forgive him quickly if his Patriots achieve a different kind of redemption Sunday.

New England is looking for revenge after a 16-9 defeat to the New York Jets in week 2.  The Jets defense suffocated Brady and the Pats, holding the Quarterback to an under 50% completion rate.  However, after their offense sputtered in the loss two months ago, the Patriots will have a chance to all but bury the struggling Jets in the AFC East if they can improve to 6-0 at home.

Who said there’s no crying in football?

November 17, 2009

A day after the Jets lost a crippling game to the Jaguars, head coach Rex Ryan gathered his team for the traditional Monday morning meeting.  Except, this meeting was different.  According to several players, Rex delivered an impassioned speech to his players that was so emotionally charged it brought him to tears. Plenty of players were left stunned, and many were quoted as saying it made them want to run right out of the auditorium and straight on a plane to Foxborough for Sunday’s game against the Patriots.
