    A FESTIVUS MIRACLE IN NEW YORK?
    Posted by Mike Florio on December 14, 2008, 12:08 p.m.

    A man in Washington wants to plant a Festivus pole at the state capitol. Jets owner Woody Johnson should consider getting his own tinsel-free holiday prop out of the crawl space, given that members of the team’s defense gathered on Thursday night for a steak dinner that included, per ESPN’s Rachel Nichols, an “airing of grievances.”

    There’s no word on whether and to what extent the players engaged in feats of strength.

    The irony here, of course, is that the man after whom the son of the Festivus founder was modeled, Larry David, is a huge Jets fan. In fact, David (whose cameos on Seinfeld included a stint as Frank Costanza’s lawyer) reportedly has given free advice and counsel to coach Eric Mangini and G.M. Mike Tannebaum.

    Hopefully, David wasn’t wearing a cape while doing so.

    ignore all the usual BS in PFT's 'reporting'... I want to know more about the airing of grievances, who were they airing them to, what was the end result, etc

    Probably the pass defense, lack of pass rush, etc.

    Hopefully they come out fired up and aggressive.

    Festivus is your heritage, George.

    That's why I hate it.

    This might be the worst "article" I've ever seen. This had more Seinfeld (which I love) reference than football reference.

    What a terrible piece of writing.

    There is no doubt that Larry David would do a better job coaching this defense then Coach Suckon.
