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 ?

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 ?

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.) 

Nonetheless, except for a Superbowl victory, I cannot be happier with the Jets and what they accomplished this season.

Francesa is embarassing himself

January 19, 2010

One thing that makes writers great, and radio hosts entertaining, is their ability to say or write outlandish things so people either read their articles or call up their show.  What fun would it be if Wallace Matthews always praised the Mets and Yankees?

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-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.
