24 Hour Rule In Progress

Monday, September 20th, 2010

Florham Park, N.J.-Mark Sanchez certainly wasn’t the first person to come up with this rule, but it is a rule he swears he sticks by, no matter what.

Last Tuesday, the mood and energy surrounding the Jets was drastically different than today. It was important for the team that they didn’t overreact to the heart-breaking loss from last week, and will be equally important to not overreact after this big win.

Last week every player on the Jets, as well as their coach, said they couldn’t wait to get back out there and play, so they could avenge the sloppy loss in the season opener. Mark Sanchez talked about the importance of what is referred to as the, “24 Hour Rule.” (more…)

Defense Shines Sans Revis, Sanchez Steals the Show

Monday, September 20th, 2010

Florham Park, N.J.- What a difference six days make.

Just six days ago all the Jets critics, and many of their own fans, turned into “Chicken Little,” running around screaming that the sky was falling on the Jets season after just one game.

The Jets picked up right where they left off last Monday in the first quarter against the Patriots, running a total of three offensive plays in the first-quarter, but began to get on track early in the second and took over the game as the second-half belonged to the Jets and even more to Mark Sanchez.

Introducing Sione Pouha

Friday, September 17th, 2010

Florham Park, N.J.- Sione Pouha (pronounced ‘See-oh-nee Bo-oo-ha’), also nicknamed ‘Big Bo’, finds himself in an extremely odd position. Rarely will you see someone being introduced six years after they have arrived somewhere, but that’s exactly the situation Pouha has found himself in.

Pouha might be in his sixth season with the Jets (Pouha played college ball at Utah), but many fans were first introduced to him on Monday night because of his great play, including his two fumble recoveries. Problem is he did this for a large part of last year as well.

After the game Rex Ryan was asked about Pouha’s play and Ryan said, “The guy plays great. That’s the first question I’ve had on him in two years.” Proving that while he has been here for six years, and he was one of the biggest reasons the Jets didn’t suffer a drop-off after Jenkins got hurt last season, most people still don’t know who he is.

Defensive Coordinator, Mike Pettine, thinks that’s just how Pouha likes it. Pettine said, “These are guys (Pouha, Mike Devito and Howard Green) that are kind of nameless, faceless guys and when you look at the rest of the room defensively, I think that’s the way they like it. I think some of them got referred to as journeymen a couple years ago and I think that really chapped them a little bit. To the point where I think they might have hung it up in the meeting room, but I think they take pride in that, hey their just going to go out and do their jobs.”

After the Ravens game Ryan didn’t waste anytime explaining why he and everyone else should have confidence in Pouha. Ryan said, “He does a tremendous job for us. Last year when Kris Jenkins went down, the defense challenged themselves to get better at stopping the run because we lost our big man in there, and we did get better. We improved by like 20 yards a game. Sione is a huge reason for that. Today, Baltimore rushed 34 times for 50 yards. That’s a great rushing football team. They can run the ball against anybody. A lot of credit goes to Sione. He’s probably one of the best unknown players in this league.”

When Pouha was asked why he thinks he is still such an unknown, Pouha said, “I don’t know. I have no idea. Someone mentioned that Rex mentioned that and stuff, I’m just a do your job type of guy, you know what I mean. If I’m not doing it right than I’ll work at it as hard as I can and I don’t know, I guess I haven’t really had too many requests for interviews (laughing). So I guess that’s why people can say that.”

Just a do your job type of guy huh? That has to be music to Pettine’s ears. Pettine said, “Our theme defensively, our mantra, is really do your job (and) good things will happen. Those guys are perfect examples of that. Their going to do their job, it’s not going to show up in the stat sheet, but their out there steady as a rock and your not going to see spectacular plays from them, but their doing their jobs. Both those guys (Pouha and Devito) I thought played lights-out on Monday night.”

Pouha is getting more attention now than he was last year and at any other point in his life, but whether fans know about him is irrelevant. One of the most common sayings in football is that, the big men inside do all the work and get none of the credit. So goes the life of an NFL lineman.

The fans don’t need to know about him, though they soon will, but rest-assured the Patriots, and every other team that has the Jets on their schedule, know exactly who he is and what he brings to this defense.

Shaun Ellis thinks Pouha will soon get the attention and credit he deserves. When asked about how Pouha can help fill the void left by Jenkins, Ellis said, “Bo did a successful job last year, you know coming in and you know, (now) a lot of people are turning on the tapes and he’s on of the best of the best nose guards in the league. It’s just one of those things where a lot of people aren’t giving him his credit. I think a lot of people need to start to focus in on him and see how good he really is.”

One of the other people who will have an increased role with the absence of Jenkins is Mike Devito. When asked what makes Pouha such a disruptive force Devito said, “Oh, he’s an awesome, awesome player. Just a really, really powerful player (and he) reads blocks really well. I mean (he’s a) quick reactor, light on his feet and he gets good pressure in the pass game. He’s somebody that I really look up to and I try to study my game prepared with his game.”

Pouha knows his teammates and coaches, especially Ryan, have a tremendous amount of confidence in him. Pouha said, “I’ve been knowing that. That’s not a surprise that’s no secret. When Rex puts you on the squad you know he believes in you. Since he got here, you know that’s something I knew already. I mean it wasn’t just a surprise to hear it this past Monday, that he had confidence in all of us as a whole, we all knew that from the get go.”

The running theme should be obvious by now. These guys, especially Pouha, stepped in and replaced Jenkins for the last 13 games last year (counting the playoffs) and no one in this organization is expecting anything less. Having the experience of last year can only help as Pouha said being familiar with the entire defense is the key.

Pouha has improved as a player because he has become more familiar with everything around him. Pouha said, “I think I’m more familiar with the scheme, I‘m more familiar with my role, I’m more familiar with what goes on around me and I think the relationship with the brotherhood we have with Shaun (Ellis) and Devito in there, we all know how to work as a trio. When Jenks was in there we all learned how to work as quads, but I think we are all familiar with each other we all know what this individual is going to do, so I think overall just being more familiar with each other.”

Also back with the Jets to help replace Jenkins is Howard Green and Pouha is happy to have his friend back. Obviously for what he can contribute on the field, but it’s also good if he needs someone to make a late-night run to McDonald’s for him.

When Pouha was asked about how it feels to have Green back he said, “We’re all familiar with each other, how we all joke. You know he’s familiar with what I would order if I went to McDonald’s or Burger King (laughing), so it’s good to have one of the fellas back… If I go to Mcdonald’s I’ll probably get like four Big Macs. The special sauce don’t really hit your taste buds until after three, so you got to get four.”

Maybe the way fans experience Pouha’s play is analogous to the way he feels about his Big Macs. Sure those first couple taste pretty good, but it’s not until the third that the full brunt of the impact is felt.

Last year Pouha was good enough to earn the respect and confidence of his coaches and teammates. Fans never complained about him or anything, but maybe this will be the year that his play makes Jet fans salivate over his impact like he salivates over that third Big Mac.

Greene Puts Loss Squarely On Himself

Thursday, September 16th, 2010

Florham Park, N.J.- The Jets made an abundance on mistakes as a team against the Ravens, but Shonn Greene thinks it was his fault the Jets lost the game. Yesterday he owned up to his costly mistake and willingly accepted blame for the excruciating defeat.

Greene said, “Yeah, I took that loss on my shoulders. That was a key moment in the game, that fumble, and then it turned into a touchdown for Baltimore. I put that pretty much on my shoulders.”

Before that fumble Greene had five carries for 18 yards and one reception for nine yards. Those are hardly the type of numbers Jet fans were expecting to see after Greene’s break-out playoff performance. A lot of questions have been asked this offseason about if the Jets made the right move letting Thomas Jones go and expecting Greene to fulfill his role, while one game can’t determine the validity of either answer this game sure doesn’t help Greene’s case.

Rex Calls Out To Fans

Thursday, September 16th, 2010

Brady and Belichick Talk Jets Brash Style

Florham Park, N.J.- Rex Ryan opened his press conference today, repeating the same message he left on season-ticket holder’s answering machines last season. Ryan sent a message to Jet fans, this time through the media, to come out extra loud and rowdy and promised the team will match their intensity.

Ryan said, “’I’m calling out, we need our fans. Just like they were for us that first week, we need them again at their best. We know it was a difference between, when two teams are evenly matched sometimes that home field advantage makes a difference. Last year, the second week of the season, our home crowd made the difference in my opinion. I need a great effort. I’m calling out to the fans. We need a great effort. They’re going to get our full effort for sure, I can promise you that.”

As much as Jet fans may love to hate the Patriots and Tom Brady, they should admire the way they carry themselves. All offseason a variety of people have gone out of their way to let everyone know how they feel about the Jets going out of their way to let people know how they feel. Convoluted logic at best, but finally someone seems to get it, it’s no wonder the guy has three rings.

When asked if he thought the Jets and their coach do too much talking Brady said, ”I don’t really care what they do to tell you the truth. I’m concerned with what we do.  That’s been our M.O. for a lot of years. I think it was successful for us. The Jets are going to do what they’re going to do and we’re going to do what we’re going to do. The reality is none of it really matters. What matters is how we go out and play this weekend.”

Finally someone is saying they are too focused on their own team to concern themselves with what a player or coach from another team should or shouldn’t be doing something.

Brady expanded on those thoughts when asked about how he reacts to bits and pieces of what he has seen and heard from Ryan. Brady said, “I don’t react too often. I don’t really get into all that. It doesn’t bother me one way or the other. I can sit here and make all the predictions in the world too. The reality for him and all his players and us and our coach (is) we’ve got to go out and play. I don’t spend my time looking into that other (stuff) or analyzing (it). I know that I’ve got to get ready to play. I don’t want to waste my time trying to analyze what he thinks about us. I just want to go out and play the game. I’d rather spend my time watching film then really talking to you guys, with all due respect (laughter).”

It’s certainly not breaking news that the Jets and Patriots have different styles, everyone on both teams will readily acknowledge this.

Brady said, “Every team has different styles. Every team does it differently. There is no right or wrong way. It’s just the way that works for us. That’s why I don’t think we buy into what other people say about us, good, bad or indifferent. We’ve got to go out there and play the game.”

Ryan sure doesn’t disagree. When asked about the difference in the styles of himself and Belichick, Ryan said, “He is who he is and that’s worked for him obviously. I know the only way things are going to work for me is if I’m myself. I can’t go out and try to clone myself into Bill Belichick. I’d love to have his record (and) the Super Bowl rings.  I’m working on it, so we’ll see when it’s all said and done how many I can end up with.”

All this agreeing on both sides sounds odd, especially after all the trash-talking that led up to last week’s game, but Belichick echoed what Ryan and Brady said. Belicheck said, “Rex has done a terrific job. I think our styles are a little different, but I don’t think that really matters. I have a lot of respect for what he does and the way that his teams play.  They’re a tough opponent. We certainly have a lot of respect for Rex and the entire team of the New York Jets.”

If you were expecting a vicious war of words between these two teams, then your going to be disappointed.

Sure there will be a couple stray shots fired from and at certain players, (Moss and Revis anyone?) but even considering the intensity of this rivalry it’s clear that both teams have a great deal of respect for each other.

Sanchez was asked what he admired most about Brady and said, “As a quarterback, his poise, (he’s) just a guy that never gets rattled. He’s always sharp and he’s one of those quarterbacks that younger quarterbacks aspire to be because defenses are scared to give him the ball. When (a player like that) has the ball the last drive of the game, defenses are terrified. That’s good.  That’s what you want as a quarterback. That’s what you want as a team. I respect him so much. I know he’s a great quarterback and we have our hands full. Our defense will have to do their very best.”

Belichick isn’t sitting back thinking the Jets will just be a pushover, because they lost one game, by a single point, even if many NFL fans are. When asked what he saw from the Jets on Monday, Belichick said, “We’ve seen a lot more than Monday night. We’ve seen all their preseason games, all their games last year, the playoff games (and) both game against us. They have a lot of good players. They have a good offensive scheme.  They definitely give you a lot of problems (and) a lot of things to prepare for. They hurt Baltimore with the plays with Brad Smith (and) (LaDainian) Tomlinson. They have great weapons there at receiver, tight end (and) running back. They give you a lot of things to prepare for. They do a good job.”

Once again, surprise-surprise, Brady agreed with his coach saying, “They played one of the top teams in the league in Baltimore, who are probably very similar to the way the Jets are. It was a very hard fought game. They’re two very good defensive football teams and they make it tough on offenses. The Jets defense is one of the best in the league and preparing for them is certainly no easy task. We’ve spent all day Monday, all day Tuesday and all day today trying to get ready for them. They present a lot of challenges. They’re just so physical and they really play that scheme really well.”

As game-time approaches the comments are bound to get less and less friendly by the day. For now all there really is too talk about, from a trash-talking soap-opera for men type of standpoint, is the playful back and forth between Revis and Moss (Which you can and should have already read about from JetsInsider’s own Wesley Sykes (http://tinyurl.com/3akqu7u ) and of course there was still that whole matter of Tom Brady saying he hates the Jets.

So to toss Jet fans a bone and let them get their level of hatred for Brady back up past boiling, here is what Brady said when asked to expand on his comments about hating the Jets. Brady said, “(Laughing) Can I expand on those feelings? Do they really need to be expanded on?”

Then to top it off, he had to go bring the Yankees and Red Sox into it. When asked how deep his hatred for the Jets is Brady said, “It’s an intense rivalry. There are not many New Yorkers that like people from Boston and vice versa. When I got here, it was always Yankees/Red Sox. There’s just something between New York and Boston. The teams have been very competitive. It’s been a great rivalry. Obviously, there has been a lot of player movement over the years between teams. It makes it fun for the fans. It makes it fun for the players. It’s great for the league. I’m glad to be playing so early in the year.  It’s exciting for the players.”

Interesting to hear him invoke the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry, considering Brady has been known to don a Yankee hat from time to time. Regardless the politeness will soon fade away and on Sunday there should be one hell of a game to watch at the New Meadowlands Stadium.

Addressing Secondary Concerns

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

Florham Park, N.J.-  That headline is one of those double entendre things people often use when they think they are more clever than they really are.

In this case, yes obviously, the article will address the concerns within the Jets secondary. Mainly Cromartie’s, and to a lesser extent Wilson’s, struggles during Monday’s game. However, there will also be a clear emphasis that these specific concerns are secondary concerns, at best, compared to the other problems the team has to address after that slop filled game they played less then 48 hours ago.

After watching Boldin take turns repeatedly beating Cromartie and Wilson (or not beating them but getting bailed about by penalties, some warranted, one very questionable) many people were left scratching their head wondering why Revis wasn’t following Boldin’s every move around the field. (more…)

Rex Addresses Loss to Ravens and Loss of Jenkins

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

The Jets lost more than a just a game last night, they also lost Kris Jenkins for the rest of the season and quite possibly his career.

“We’ll start off with Kris… He’s done for the year,” a very subdued Rex Ryan said, delivering the message Jet fans were fearing. Ryan continued saying, “It’s the same knee as last year, and the ACL…. He’ll be out for the year and obviously it’s gonna be a huge blow to us, but again we’re about the team. I just feel really bad for Kris, a guy that rehabbed that injury, everyday worked (he) at it. That’s part of this business, unfortunately injuries happen in this league. It’s a 100 percent injury rate in this league and that’s just one of the unfortunate parts of this business.”

Injuries are without a doubt a big part of the business called the NFL, but some injuries hurt more than others, this is one of those injuries. (more…)

Ravens Beat Jets 10-9, As Jets Offense Is Grounded

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

The Jets have no one to blame for this loss but themselves, as they continuously shot themselves in the foot with countless penalties and struggles on third-down.

East Rutherford, N.J.-

Lightning storms may have delayed the start of game, but it was the combination of Baltimore’s defense and the Jets unforced errors that delayed the start of any type of offensive rhythm for the Jets.

Jet fans were as rowdy as ever entering the parking lot even through the worst of the storm and when the fans in the stadium were forced back to their seats they took their patented, J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS!, chants to the tunnels.

Fireworks, sirens, and an explosion of excited cheers ripped through the air as the defense came running out of the tunnels for introduction, Jersey native Kyle Wilson had the loudest cheer, but then an even louder cheer for newcomer Cromartie, (those two would not be receiving many cheers from Jet fans after the game)  followed by…… You should have to wait like everyone else had to wait. The announcer paused for a couple of seconds then announced number 24 Darreeeeeellle Reeeeevis, it wasn’t easy to hear since the announcer was drowned out by the sound of overly anxious fans rejoicing in having their All-World corner back on the field.

The Jets defense came out strong, displaying all the ferocity and intensity expected of them. On the Ravens first play from scrimmage Shaun Ellis and Bryan Thomas came rushing around the edges, easily brushing off their blockers, the two players seemingly merged into one as they sandwiched Flacco to the ground and sent the ball popping out and bouncing into the hands of Sione Pouha for the Jet’s first take-away of the game.

This no doubt, being their first defensive play of the season, had to have Ryan grinning ear-to-ear, unfortunately for the Jets they could only turn that into three-points as they failed to pick up a first down after the fumble, with Sanchez going one for two for six yards on the drive that ended with a 29-yard field goal off the foot of Nick Folk to give the Jets a 3-0 lead.

This was just the first of many missed opportunities that would come back to bit the Jets in the end. Against a defense as strong as the Ravens you have to take advantage of every opportunity you get and the Jets consistently threw those chances away like a dirty dishrag.

Adding injury to insult, all it took was six minutes of actual game-time to end Kris Jenkins’ night. As Jenkins tackled fullback Le’Ron McClain on a short gain, Jenkins silenced the boisterous crowd as he lay, hurt on the ground. The defense refused to fold, Raven’s quarterback Joe Flacco began to find some some success with throwing the ball, but the drive ended with Bart Scott and David Harris combining to tackle Willis McGahee with Scott forcing another fumble that found it’s way into Pouha’s humongous arms.

The Jet offense struggled to stretch the field all night long, early in the game they had a gorgeous 33 yard pass from Sanchez to Keller (which would of set them up on the three-yard line) that was negated because of an illegal shift penalty called on Braylon Edwards. The Jets bounced back, kind of, as they found some success running the ball. Then on third and seven, the Jets missed another opportunity to begin to really distance themselves from the Ravens.

Sanchez dropped back to pass, scanned around the field and didn’t see anything he liked, except for a gapping hole in the middle of the field. Sanchez tucked the ball and scrambled for the first-down marker. It looked like he had plenty of room to make it, but Sanchez picked that exact moment to listen to his coaches advice from last year, as he played it safe sliding to the turf. Even with the slide it looked as if Sanchez picked up the first-down, but a questionable spot from the refs forced the Jets to settle for another field goal from Nick Folk, this one from 28 yards, to give the Jets a 6-0 lead.

6-0 seemed good at the time, but clearly it wasn’t enough. The Jets needed to get a touchdown on at least one of those drives, but they didn’t and although no one was aware of it at the time that was the end of their chances of winning.

The Jets defense did it’s part, holding the Ravens to just one touchdown and one field goal, but they didn’t do a good enough job of keeping the Ravens offense off the field to save the struggling offense. The Ravens dominated the time of possession as they controlled the ball for more than 17 minutes more than the Jets. Time of possession was far from the Jets’ only problem.

The Jets killed themselves with penalties, earning 14 penalties to the Ravens five, for a total of 125 yards compared to just 38 yards for the Ravens. Then there was the difference in third-down conversions, the Jets ended the game 1-11 on third-down’s with that one coming on the last drive of the game, while the Ravens lived off of third-down chances ending the night 11-19 in third-down situations.

Really, it’s as simple as that. Sometimes you can look at the box score of a game and have no idea who outscored who, not this game. Any time you see a team get dominated that much in those three categories they are destined to lose the game.

When asked about all the penalties Rex Ryan said, “In the first half alone, I think we gave up five first downs on defense on holding calls, pass interference and all that kind of stuff. That’s not who we are or how we play. We pride ourselves on being one of the least penalized defenses in the league. Today was a joke. They just threw it up there – shoot, I don’t blame them. Hope for a completion or a penalty. We’ve got to do a better job than that, and I believe we will.” He better hope they do and he better hope it happens soon as the Jets can’t afford to pile more losses on this early in the season.

The Ravens had no success running the ball, as they only rushed for 49 yards total, but they had the ball long enough to keep trying and allow them to eat up the clock.

Flacco was up-and-down all game, but he used Anquan Boldin and Todd Heap to his advantage when given the opportunity. Flacco and Boldin took turns picking on the two new Jet cornerbacks, Wilson and Cromartie. Cromartie did briefly get revenge with a big interception by the goal-line, but after that it was defensive holds and pass interferences for the rest of the game. Wilson played good in spurts, and sometimes had solid coverage only to be beat anyway, but he drew a huge pass interference call in the end zone (which to be fair seemed like a phantom call) which then set the Ravens up for their first touchdown as McGahee pounded the ball in for seven points.

After another stalled offensive drive and a bunch more penalties the Ravens fought their way back down the field to get all the points they would need, by kicking a 25 yard field goal to give the Ravens a 10-3 lead.

Flacco ended his night 20-38 for 248 yards and one interception and he did the majority of his damage with Boldin and Heap, mostly down the middle. Boldin finished the game with seven catches for 110 yards and Heap had six receptions for 72 yards. The Ravens stayed away from testing Revis, instead the decided to take their chances on the new boys in town. Their plan worked.

The Jets should of been up at least double-digits by half-time, but for all the reasons previously mentioned they just couldn’t finish the job. Sanchez didn’t force any turnovers, which is a good sign, but he held on to the ball too long too many times, resulting in too many sacks at the most crucial of times and besides the early pass to Keller the Jets didn’t try and stretch the field all night.

Sanchez ended the game just 10-21 for a measly 74 yards and a quarterback rating of 56.4. Trying to understand how the QB rating works can make your head hurt many times, but it’s fairly obvious a 56.4 simply isn’t going to be good enough.

The Jets ran the ball fairly well, especially considering the front seven they were facing, they ended the game with 116 total rushing yards (62 yards on 11 carries from an impressive L.T.) but they just couldn’t find and maintain any type of rhythm.

As the game came to a close, (and the Jets tacked on another field goal to cut the lead to one) more passes bounced off receivers hands (Cotchery dropped two easy sure-fire catches that would of given the Jets a first-down) penalties were called and sacks were taken.

The Jets final play of the game, couldn’t of summed up the Jets’ night any better. On fourth-down Sanchez hit Dustin Keller for what appeared to be a first-down as Keller ran out of bounds, but when watching the replay you could clearly see Keller run out of bounds with the ball in his inside hand and just short of the first-down marker. A perfectly horrific play end the game and continue the theme of the night and that would be the Jets coming up just short.

Whichever angle you choose to look at this game in, you will see the same answer, the Jets clearly beat themselves tonight, lucky for them it is just the first game of the year and they have this coming Sunday to start to prove that tonight was not what the fans should expect to see from here on out.

The bottom line tonight was, even with all the penalties, the game was up for grabs, it was anyone’s game there for the taking. The Jets defense only gave up 10 points and the running game managed an impressive 116 total yards against that vicious front-seven of Baltimore, but the game came down to who made the big plays when their team needed it. The answer and clear victor here is Joe Flacco.

He played a far from flawless game, but he made a couple of big plays, which turned out to be just enough to win the game because Sanchez, while not committing crucial turnovers like last season, simply couldn’t step up and make a play when they needed it most.

Other News and Notes

Safety Brodney Pool was inactive for the game tonight. Ryan had said previously they were going back-and-forth with whether or not they should risk further injuring that ankle and play him or give him one more week to be 100%.

Kris Jenkins obviously hurt his knee as previously mentioned. There was no information about the extent of his injury available at this time, JetsInsider.com should have more information on this for you tomorrow.

Game Delayed Due To Lightning

Monday, September 13th, 2010

East Rutherford, N.J.- Walking into the stadium the lightning lit up the sky, dampening the literal fireworks the fans were letting off in the parking lot.

This type of lightning storm is something you might be used to if you lived in Florida. Thelightning was fierce enough to send the fans scampering out of their seats (okay maybe because they were ordered to over the P.A. system) and caused an announcement at 6:15, that the game would be delayed at a minimum of 30 minutes.

Was the storm a good omen or bad omen? Have the football gods been so angered with the back-and-forth trash-talk or are they simply preparing us for things to come? (more…)

Balancing the Hype Vs. Hate

Monday, September 13th, 2010

Florham Park, N.J.- The Jets have been one of, if not the most talked about teams this offseason and as with anything that gets a lot of exposure, people are getting sick of hearing about them.

Really, it’s only natural. Who hasn’t, at point in their life, heard a song they liked only to grow to inexplicably despise the song after being over exposed to it? At first, you enjoy the song, but before you know it your ready to hit the eject button and send yourself through your sunroof as soon as the song comes on the radio, just so you don’t have to hear that stupid song anymore.

Everyone knows this feeling, and to casual fans of the NFL or any fans of teams besides the Jets, this analogy perfectly sums up their feelings for the Jets. (more…)
