    Rick Reilly Jets QB poem

    Journalism continues to take a nose dive.

    http://espn.go.com/espn/story/_/id/9...ts-view-stanza

    QB or not QB
    That is the question.
    Who should the Jets start?
    Who should the Jets shun?

    Dealt a hand of 5
    None of them a king
    They have to find one
    Can we re-deal this thing?

    They cut Tim Tebow
    A big deletion
    20 mag covers
    6 completions

    (Tim was just voted
    "Most Influential"
    Whoever they asked
    Must be demential)

    They could start Sanchez
    But fans would grumble
    His most famous play
    Is the butt fumble

    Rex Ryan's seat is hot
    Mark's been killin' him
    What hurts worse is
    He makes 8 million

    They picked brash Geno
    Who's a bit of a diva
    He says he'll behave
    But who's a believa?

    Smith doesn't listen
    He'd much rather text
    Try that in meetings
    His phone will get Rexed

    What about Dave Garrard?
    He stands tall among men
    But hasn't thrown a pass
    Since 2010

    Garrard was a Jag
    Who never flew high
    Guess J.A.G. means
    "Just Another Guy"

    Then there's McElroy
    The ex-'Bama gun
    Has a hot girl, too
    Or ... is that the other one?

    Matt Simms has good genes
    But his hope is slim
    Coaches over 40
    Rarely play The Sims

    If the Jets were a car
    They'd need a loaner
    Is it possible
    To fire the owner?

    Not much of a group
    But Rex says: "Compete!"
    (This will be less fun
    than looking at feet)

    Let the battle start
    though the talent's thin
    But wait -- what happens
    If nobody wins?

    That just established new lows for me. I don't think I have ever called for a thread to be dumped but that did make me throw up in my mouth a little bit (onion bagel).

    Yeah, I figured most would say "dump" - but I had to share it. It's pathetic how much the media is piling onto the organization. Beating a dead horse to death over and over and over again.

    My... Oh my... What a steaming puddle of dysentery.

    The idiot who put those words together like that should be stoned to death

    Watching ESPN for sports news is like watching WWE for sports. It's all just characters following storylines for the sake of entertainment.

    The best drivel $3.4 million a year can buy.

    Rick Reilly, a poem about Rick Reilly, by Rick Reilly

    My name is Rick Reilly
    I make more money than you
    My words make people Smiley
    My wit turns the sky blue

    I’m the best writer there is
    by the way my name’s Rick Reilly
    it rolls from the tongue like cheese whiz
    Rick Reilly Rick Reilly Rick Reilly

    People all around me
    ask how my writing is so bold
    I tell them it’s cause im Rick Reilly
    my **** is made of gold

    Some folks call me a hack
    Me? But I’m Rick Reilly
    I can’t be a hack cause I’m the Mack Daddy
    Oh, wait, that doesn’t rhyme

    Wait, I messed up. let me start again.

    Because I am Rick Reilly
    I get all the mulligans I want
    ESPN pays me anyway
    I’m like a finely crafted croissant

    the Editor thinks I should fix my error
    I should fire him, I’m Rick Reilly!
    Proper Rhyming schemes
    Too constraining for Rick Reilly!

    What’s this bull**** about stanzas
    I go my own way, I’m Rick Reilly!
    I’m like George Costanza
    From How I met your mother

    These are getting much harder to write
    even for me, Rick Reilly
    Maybe I should just rhyme my name a lot
    Rick Reilly Rick Reilly Rick Reilly

    Rick Reilly Rick Reilly Rick Reilly?
    Rick Reilly Rick Reilly Rick Reilly!
    (Rick Reilly Rick Reilly Rick Reilly)
    Rick Reilly Rick Reilly Rick Reilly.

    Love, Rick Reilly

    For a moment, let's overlook that the poem is inflamatory and not based in fact...

    The poem just flat out sucks. I could have done a better job than that.

    Rick Reilly is such a schmaltzy hack. There is not one redeeming quality about him.

    in a way i'm glad this guy wrote this poem. it shows how badly the media WANTS the jets to remain a circus, rather than reporting on what exists now. most media type, some of whom cover the jets for a living, are clearly rooting for the team to fail, implode and flat out embarrass its collective self. alll the more reason geno should come in and play well and leave these people looking for something else to write about.

    Whats funny is that the Jets rolled out the red carpet to ESPN last year at training camp, gave them practice scripts and allowed their reporters to stand on the sidelines and televise their practices. So what does ESPN do in return??? They go out of their way to trash the franchise any chance they get. I hope this is a lesson learned for Woody.

    Let's be clear, this man sat down watching TV and started thinking "hey I've got a great idea, I should write a snarky poem about the Jets QB situation and make fun of them". He probably got giddy about it, you know that feeling you get when you're setting up a prank on your buddy. You're giggling, thinking what a great idea you have.

    So he sits down writing this drivel probaby amusing himself and giving himself mental high fives with each passage. Thedn when he finishes it he probably thought to himself "wow, this is totally awesome!"

    Yeah, he looked at that with confidence and satisfaction saying "I wrote that" in the same way I look at some of my turds and think to myself "I created this masterpiece".

    This.

    I dont know if it was all the free time in the days back at college, but ever since my ooo sophomore year, i went from a guy that would flick on ESPN right when i walked in the door at least just to listen to.

    Now i will ask people to change the channel unless its a 30 for 30 / womens college volleyball.
