Who dey!?

We see you Mark Sanchez....


What do the haters and bitter Giant fans have to say now? 

All week, Jet fans listened to how their defense was overrated, the Bengals laid down for them last week, and Sanchez would not be able to make plays against the “stifling” Cincinnati defense.  

With their rookie quarterback playing mistake-free football, the New York Jets turned their surprising playoff appearance into a long-running production and silenced the doubters. 

Mark Sanchez handled single-degree wind chills and the playoff pressure with no problems Saturday, throwing a touchdown pass on a rollout play, and the NFL’s top running game took it from there, setting up a 24-14 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. 

Sanchez went 12 of 15 for 182 yards, becoming the fourth rookie quarterback since 1950 to start and win a playoff game. 

Ladies and gentlemen, Mark Sanchez has arrived.

How much more can Jet fans take?  I mean, honestly….how many other ways are there to lose an NFL game?

The Jets, winners of three straight, dropped a heartbreaking game to the Atlanta Falcons, after their top ranked defense couldn’t stop the Dirty Birds on 4th and goal from the Jets 6 yard line.  Gang Green did a great job containing Matt Ryan, Roddy White, and in particular Tony Gonzalez the entire game, but failed to execute once again in the games waning minutes. 

As a life-long Jets fan, can it get any worse?

Thomas Jones had two touchdowns on Sunday


Kellen Clemens looked awful throwing the ball, but looked great handing it off as the Jets ran away with a 26-3 victory in Tampa.  

Thomas Jones had 99 rushing yards and two touchdowns (his third multi-TD game of the season) to help the Jets to their third straight victory after they dropped their previous 3 games. New York has rushed for 100-plus yards in 10 straight games, its longest streak since doing so in 13 straight games in 1981.

The good, the bad and the ugly

Louis Murphy celebrates after his game-winning touchdown against the Steelers.


The Jets  were able to rest up on Sunday after they beat the Buffalo Bills 19-13 Thursday night in Toronto. They were also able to pick up a couple of much needed victories in week 13. Gang Green is still not in good shape, as they hold a 2-4 division record and five conference losses, so a lot of scenarios will still have to unfold for the Jets to make the playoffs. Nonetheless, some things worked in the Jets favor on Sunday and some did not.
