Same Old Jets? Prove me wrong

January 27, 2010

 

Can Sanchez change the Jets culture?

It’s all settled in, the pain has subsided and I can now assess the New York Jets with an objective eye. So I’ll prepare myself for a punch in the face from Rex Ryan.

Same Old Jets. 

There, I said it. Read the rest of this entry ?

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 hault perfection, defeat unbeaten Colts

December 28, 2009

Thomas Jones and company ran all over the Colts

Boo yah….

The New York Jets put themselves in prime position for a playoff berth with a 29-15 victory over the previously undefeated Colts.  Everything broke the right way for Gang Green in the earlier games, and the Jets did their part to earn the opportunity to play for a wild-card berth next Sunday against the Bengals.  If the Jets win, they’re in….lose, and they can schedule tee times with Eli Manning and the Giants.

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. 3

December 21, 2009

"With the 199th pick of the 2000 NFL draft...."

The number three athlete began the decade as an obscure backup, but closes it as the most accomplished player in the nation’s most popular sport.  This quarterback is a three-time champion whose persona has transcended football.   In addition, despite appearing in just four Pro-Bowls and winning “only” one MVP, this athlete has been the epitome of clutch in the big spot, leading his team to some of the most memorable victories of the 2000’s.  Some players have passed him in terms of individual accolades and honors, but nobody can match his accomplishments when championships are on the line.

The top 10 athletes of the 2000’s….No. 6

December 16, 2009

Every day a star is born

With the decade coming to a close, this quarterback has thrown for over 40,000 yards, over 300 TD’s, and has led his team to 114 wins, not including the playoffs.  Furthermore, he holds the third-highest career passer rating among active quarterbacks, and his 95.1 rating puts him fourth all-time behind only Steve Young, Phillip Rivers, and Tony Romo. The number 6 athlete is immersed in day-to-day disputes over not only being the best QB of this generation, but gets his share of votes for being the best of all time.

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.”

“What you are seeing is a genius at work”

November 16, 2009

“…which to me isn’t work, so it’s easy to misinterpret it at first.”

Couldn’t have said it any better than Eminem…..

The much talked about Pats-Colts game from last night all stemmed down to one decision late in the 4th quarter by hated but admired Bill Belichick.

With the Patriots up 6 points, with the ball, on their own 28 yard line, with just over 2 minutes to play, New England was faced with a 4th and 2.  Common sense dictated that Belichick would elect to punt.  Nevertheless, the Patriots defied convention, choosing to leave the game in the hands of one of the sports most prolific Quarterbacks.
