If Favre Was Chad, We’d Be Killing The Guy

I’ll start this of by repeating that I love the fact that we’ve got Brett Favre on the team from an entertainment perspective, but that it’s wrong for us long-term. We’ve got 8 quarters of live NFL football to judge our new quarterback, and it’s not pretty. What we now know: 1. Putting Brett Favre…

Money Baby

When the Jets acquired Favre, there was a lot of speculation about how many games Gang Green would win. Some analysts went as far as to predict the exact games the Jets would win and lose. Would they start 1-2? 0-3? There was little confidence in 3-0 after week three, and sure enough New York…

Gang Green Can Make a Statement in AFC

Last Sunday in Miami, the Jets found a means to escape redemption. As Dolphins QB Chad Pennington drove Miami down the field in the final minutes of the Jets’ 20-14 victory, he crept closer to handing his former mates a most embarassing defeat. But just as the Jets’ defense began to bend as Miami drove…

Favre’s History vs. the Patriots

Tomorrow will mark the sixth time QB Brett Favre has faced the Patriots in his illustrious 18-year career. In the previous five matchups, all of which came as a Green Bay Packer, Favre was 3-2 against New England. The crowning moment in Favre’s Hall-of-Fame career came against the Patriots on Jan. 26, 1997, when he led…

Thomas Travels the Road to Improvement

After totaling a career-high 8.5 sacks in 2006, OLB Bryan Thomas shed the “bust” label that followed him since being drafted 22nd overall in 2002. As a reward for his punishing pass rush, he inked a five-year, $20 million extension shortly after the season. Last year…Thomas again hit a detour in his road to the quarterback. Thomas…

Buck up LC!

This is a touchy subject, so I’ll tread as lightly as I can. Laveranues Coles needs to get over it already. Seriously. The veteran wide receiver went days, weeks even, without speaking to the media so as to avoid appearing too upset about the loss of Chad, or too happy about the arrival of Favre….

Feely Signed

According to an ESPN Chris Mortensen report the Jets have officially signed placekicker Jay Feely. Feely, a journeyman kicker, spent training camp with the Miami Dolphins before losing his job to rookie kicker Dan Carpenter. It is still unknown the severity of Nugent’s injury, but the signing of Feely probably means that Nugent won’t be ready in…

Made It Here in One Piece

Despite being stuck in traffic on the L.I.E at 6:30 in the morning and making a wrong turn (in which I had to go through Newark Airport to turn around) I made it to the Jets new facility in about an hour and 45 min. From first impressions this place is exactly what everyone has…

Day 1: Florham Park

We’ll, here we are, the day I have dreaded since the Jets announced their complete exile from the Weeb. I’m sitting in the brand spanking new Atlantic Health Jets Training Center in sleepy Florham Park NJ. My commute from Huntington, LI wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be as I made the trip in…

Analysis: Roster Cut Down

For the most part my prediction of Jets 53-man roster is pretty close to the actual roster. Minus OL Wayne Hunter instead of OL Nate Garner and CB David Barrett instead of CB Hank Poteat it was pretty close. Here are some tidbits on what the Jets might have been thinking when they made their…
