Two sides to a coin

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 ?

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 ?

The Jets want Brandon Marshall

A day after signing LaDainian Tomlinson to a two-year contract, The New York Jets have now reportedly turned their attention towards Wide Receiver Brandon Marshall.  Mike Tannenbaum is no stranger to talented players with baggage, and Marshall is the next player in line that should not be viewed without hesitation.  Read the rest of this entry ?

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.

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.

The top 10 athletes of the 2000’s….No. 1

December 23, 2009

"Quiet, for the serve"

The countdown is about to come to a close, and this tennis player was the most dominant athlete of the 2000’s.  Many lists picked Tiger Woods, Michael Phelps, or even Tom Brady to claim this spot, but many also did not realize what my number 1 athlete accomplished over the past 10 years.   As of September, 2009, he is ranked world number 1 by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP), having previously held the number one position for a record 237 consecutive weeks.   Many sports analysts, tennis critics, former and current players consider this athlete to be the greatest tennis player of all time and one of the greatest athletes the sports world has ever seen.

The top 10 athletes of the 2000’s….No. 7

December 15, 2009

A bolt of energy

Few athletes broke as many records as the number 7 athlete did this decade.  Bursting onto the NFL scene in 2001, this runningback has amassed over 12,000 rushing yards, 4,000 receiving yards, 147 touchdowns, and plenty of awards and honors.  Runningback might be the only position where there was a clear No. 1 player, and arguments for the spot would be rare. Not that there weren’t other great runningbacks,  but candidates got more and more limited as the decade went on and everyone switched to multiple-running back systems. Getting anywhere near a decade of great production is a lot to ask of any back, but the number 7 athlete certainly was the greatest.
