The Jets Fall 2009

Well, it’s over.  It was a great run, but the Jets did what they always do.  They got my hopes up and then lost at the last possible second.  This time they went as fas as Vinny Testaverde did getting to the AFC championship game in 1999.  That was a miracle season too with Bill Parcels. I felt so drained when they lost.  They put up a great fight, but...

Rex Ryan: Twitter missed opportunity

After the Jets game, David Clowney, Wide Receiver NYJ, wrote a twitter message. “1 play in the 1st Half, 4 plays in the 2nd half . . . A bit disappointed about my playing time but very happy and satisfied about the win.” For this tweet, he was benched for next Sunday’s game by Coach Rex Ryan. I think Rex Ryan missed an opportunity.  He shouldn’t have announced this message...

The UX of the Jets

Every year its the exact same thing.  Over and over and over again.  They Jets get my hopes up.  They show a glimmer of decency.  They look like they could almost play.  Then they break my heart. The rip my heart right out of my rib cage, then they throw it in the ground and stomp on it, then they do the twist on it, then they spit on it...

Brett Farve joins the Jets

Wow, legendary quarterback Brett Farve joins the New York Jets.  I am excited and fearful all at the same time.  I think the Jets have all of the right ‘talent’ on the field, but will they have the chemistry?  Will they stay healthy?  A few injuries will tank the whole team. This is an exciting season.  I love football. Prediction still stands.  The Jets will be in the Superbowl this...

Predictions: 2008/2009

Well, it’s that time of year again where I predict things and get them all wrong.  Here we go. Democrat VP Picks. I predict Caroline Kennedy.  I think Joe Biden would be solid too.  If its Caroline, then Joe will sign on for Secretary of State. Republican VP Picks. Joe Lieberman (Boo!).  Maybe Mike Bloomberg. 2008/2009 NFL AFC Champions. New York Jets.  I can’t bring myself to say Superbowl champs....

Jets Picks 2008

I am not thrilled with the Jets overall performance this weekend.  The first pick, Vernon Gholston, DE  made me happy.  Their are some questions about him, but he seems very talented.  However, it was was all lame after that.  The next pick they traded up 6 spots to get a guy that would have been available in the next round.  A tight end named Dustin Keller.  The Jets already have...

Jets

The Jets have made some great free agency moves.  My general philosophy is that a team lives and dies on the line.  O-line got improved with Alan Faneca.  I expect D’Brick and Mangold to improve dramatically with Faneca in between them.  They need his veteran presence.  This will lead to Thomas Jones (RB) to having a break-out season running behind these guys.  In fact, he gets another great blocker with...

Vinny Testaverde

The Carolina Panthers brought in Vinny Testaverde to back up David Carr. Jake Delhomme had his season cut short by injury and David Carr is banged up too. This means Vinny might see some MORE playing time.  He is now 43 years old! About Vinny: The 6-foot-5 Testaverde certainly brings experience. He ranks sixth in NFL history 6,529 pass attempts, 3,693 completions and 45,281 passing yards. He’s ninth with 270...

Rooting for Losing

I have officially given up on the 2007 Jets season.  I want them to lose very single game.  I do not want them to go 8-8.  I would like 1-15.  We are aiming for the number one draft pick next year.  Mostly likely, they should trade that pick down and build up some depth in the team.  I am wathcing Chad Pennington run the offense.  He just looks lack-luster.  Something...
