Coles’ Concussions Don’t Need to Continue

Jets wide receiver Laveranues Coles knows what it’s like to suffer bone-jarring hits. He knows what it’s like to be pounded into the turf. He even knows the inevitable pain his body exhibits on Monday mornings. Yet if there’s one feeling that the Jets’ nine-year wide receiver has become all too accustomed to, it’s the pain that comes…

Jets-Raiders Grades

Linebacker Calvin Pace said about all he needed to yesterday on the Jets’ 16-13 overtime loss: “It’s one situation where you keep letting them hang in there and they keep building confidence. They made more plays than us. We definitely had more than enough chances to pull that out, but we didn’t.” Yes, the Jets…

Jets-Raiders Key Matchups

The Oakland Raiders have had their rightful place on the mountaintop before. The ‘Silver and Black’ are the only NFL team to have played in Super Bowls in four different decades-1960s (Super Bowl II), 1970s (Super Bowl XI), 1980s (Super Bowls XV and XVIII) and the 2000s (Super Bowl XXXVII)-and have the top all-time win…

Pace, Thomas Keeping the Weight Off of Gholston’s Shoulders

Five tackles, zero sacks, zero interceptions. Certainly, that is not what Vernon Gholston wanted his statline to read after five games in the NFL. After all, he was the sixth player chosen in April’s draft, handing him a boatload of expectations along with his $21 million signing bonus. There was hope that the speedy yet hulk-sized defensive…

Raiders a Pushover? Not so Fast

Sure the Raiders hold a disappointing 1-4 record heading into Sunday’s matchup with the New York Jets, but just as Head Coach Eric Mangini preached before last week’s win against the winless Bengals and is again doing so this week, ‘the record does not tell the complete story.’ That’s not to say the Raiders have…

Jets Activate Smith, Waive Montgomery

The NFL trade deadline has passed and as expected, the Jets remained relatively quiet on a day that provided only one boom. The 0-5 Lions shipped disgruntled WR Roy Williams to the Cowboys for a first-round pick in 2009, along with a third- and sixth-round selection that year….Seems a bit much for Dallas to trade…

First Quarter Grades

When Jets General Manager Mike Tannenbaum opened his checkbook to the tune of $140 million this offseason, there was little doubt he brought great promise to a franchise that had fallen considerably since its surprising run to the playoffs in 2006. Once the fragile-armed Chad Pennington was jettisoned to the free agent market and replaced…

Favre, Mangini Share Success in Post-Bye Weeks

In Eric Mangini’s 37 games as head coach of the New York Jets, including the 37-16 loss to the Patriots in 2006 AFC wild-card round, the Jets have managed a lackluster 16-21 mark. Interestingly enough, the two more impressive wins during Mangini’s two-plus years with the team have come following bye weeks. On Nov. 12,…

Lane Kiffin Thoughts

What a couple days in the NFL! First on Monday, Rams head coach Scott Linehan gets fired and today the Raiders let go of second-year head coach Lane Kiffin. While Linehan and Kiffin both deserved to lose their jobs (because the Rams and Raiders, who both play the Jets this season, are having horrible seasons),…
