canuckfan Icon : (Yesterday, 06:45 PM) morningwheeg what an idiot....hope re4x throws him under the bus during the presser
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:45 PM) you want the NFL to say sorry and you want Morningwig canned. You're a clown
bleedsgreen Icon : (Yesterday, 06:45 PM) Gotta give credit to greenbay. That's a good football team
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:46 PM) f*** an apology. It's not going to change anything in the standings which is what matters at the end of the season.
FlyHiJets Icon : (Yesterday, 06:46 PM) definitely reminds me of AFC Championship in Denver
canuckfan Icon : (Yesterday, 06:46 PM) marty ranks up there with bittfumble
canuckfan Icon : (Yesterday, 06:47 PM) buttfumble
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:47 PM) The should have made sure he knew who was calling the time out. Hell Rex was on his right and Marty was on his left.
mgjetman Icon : (Yesterday, 06:47 PM) Getting lazy with a minute 50 on the clock before half was the nail in the coffin.
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:48 PM) The ref
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:49 PM) There is plenty of blame to spread around. No team should lose a 17 point lead anyway.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:50 PM) DUDS - Miliner and Marty
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:50 PM) BRUTAL LOSS
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:52 PM) I really don't blame Marty because it's the refs job to make sure he sees who is calling the timeout. Plus the ball had already been snapped before he even noticed somebody was calling a TO.
mgjetman Icon : (Yesterday, 06:53 PM) Just gave that game away. WTH!!!
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:54 PM) He didn't even blow the whistle until Geno already had dropped back to pass. The play was already well underway.
bleedsgreen Icon : (Yesterday, 07:03 PM) I heard it when the ball was already in the air
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) but it shouldn't of come down to that TO blunder
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) we did give up a 18 point lead
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) so we fucked up and lost
bleedsgreen Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) True
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) time to get ready for MNF
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 07:09 PM) Well it sucks when you start to feel the jets are going to lose the game them selves
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 07:09 PM) the Vick play worthless
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 07:09 PM) that run on 3rd and 5 worthless
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 07:09 PM) chris Johnson also I don't know what his numbers were but ivory seemed to be a better back
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:13 PM) Marty just picks the worse time to call those wildcat plays
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:13 PM) they are drive killers
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:27 PM) Problem is the corners. We knew this before the start of the season. I was amazed at how well they did last week and the first half but eventually the weakness showed
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:28 PM) The corner positions will be addressed next year. Technically we are still in a rebuilding phase.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:39 PM) we did go toe to toe against a SB contender and we really shouldn't be heartbroken but if you call yourself a JETS fan and aren't a little pissed over a W that we had in our control then you need to go and hand in your JETS gear ... I'm looking at you 115
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:24 PM) 18 penalties in 2 games
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:25 PM) unacceptable
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:27 PM) Geno dropped from #1 to #28 in TOTAL QBR
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:10 PM) Cutler just got popped right in the chest
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:11 PM) that was a squared up right in the middle of the chest hit
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:13 PM) nice one handed catch by Marshall
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 10:06 PM) NFL rules state that only the head coach can call a timeout on the sidelines…

Except in Green Bay where anybody up to the third row can call a timeout.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 10:06 PM) I love NFL memes
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 11:30 PM) Well I will be at the game next Monday night
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 11:30 PM) So I will be doing everything I can to help our team win!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 10:15 AM) 2nd year in a row we should be 2-0
santana Icon : (Today, 12:17 PM) TIMEOUT!!

Best of NFL is in NYC
Start spreading the news. The Giants and Jets have climbed to the top of the league.

By MARK CRAIG, Star Tribune

Last update: November 24, 2008 - 11:50 PM

Giants owner John Mara and Jets owner Woody Johnson gave the media a tour of Meadowlands Stadium last Thursday.

They were happy to report that the 82,500-seat stadium is 60 percent complete, ahead of schedule and "on budget," according to Meadowlands Stadium CEO Mark Lamping. And by "on budget," they mean the stadium shouldn't cost a nickel more than the $1.6 billion that was earmarked for its 2010 debut.

The cost of the stadium and the ensuing hike in ticket prices have been a prickly issue for the two teams and their longtime fans during these difficult financial times.

"It's certainly something we're concerned about and we're very sensitive to," Mara told reporters. "That's why we try to come up with as many different pricing options as possible, and we're trying to be flexible and work with people in terms of payment scheduling."

Johnson also claimed to feel the common man's financial pain. He did fight back the tears long enough to assure the peasants that they will be "shocked and awed by the stadium" and "well-rewarded for their financial commitment."

Then, almost as if on cue, the Giants and Jets hit the road, became the two best teams in the NFL and jump-started talk of a New York "Subway Super Bowl."

The Giants (10-1) proved they're still the best team in the NFL by proving that Arizona is only the best team in the pitiful NFC West. The 37-29 road victory was even more impressive because the Giants did it without their best running back (Brandon Jacobs) and their best receiver (Plaxico Burress).

"It'll work out," Cardinals nose tackle Darnell Dockett said. "We'll see the Giants again."

With one more victory or a 49ers loss, the Cardinals will win their division and earn their first home playoff game since 1947 (that's not a typo, folks). But any rematch with the Giants would be on the road, which isn't good for a team that's 1-6 in the Eastern time zone under coach Ken Whisenhunt.



The Jets, meanwhile, raised their record to 8-3 by handing host Tennessee its first loss of the season. The 34-13 rout was a credit to the Jets' aggressive offseason acquisitions. And we're not only talking about the Brett Favre trade. The Jets also rebuilt their defensive line around nose tackle Kris Jenkins and their offensive line around left guard Alan Faneca and right tackle Damien Woody.

The Jets ran for 192 yards while holding the Titans to 45 yards rushing. If that's not a head-turner for the entire league, it should be. Favre + a running game + a solid defense = Look out AFC.

"We want to be taken seriously," Jenkins said.

"This puts us in good position," Favre added.

Check and check.

The Jets are tied with the Steelers for the second-best record in the division. But the Jets have an easier road to earning that No. 2 seed and first-round bye. Their remaining opponents are a combined 23-32, while Pittsburgh's remaining opponents are a combined 35-20. The Steelers' next four games are at New England (7-4), home against Dallas (7-4), at Baltimore (7-4) and at Tennessee (10-1). Ouch.

Chances are the Titans will earn home-field advantage in the AFC. They play at Detroit (0-11), Cleveland (4-7) and at Houston (4-7) over the next three weeks. Hello 13-1.

But even if the Jets have to go back to Tennessee in the playoffs, who cares? They manhandled the Titans from the get-go Sunday.

After Tennessee went three-and-out, the Jets drove 76 yards in nine plays and scored a touchdown on a defense that had allowed only 23 points in the first quarter all season.

"That first drive was a tone-setter," said running back Thomas Jones, who capped it with a 10-yard TD reception.

It also set the tone for the entire AFC heading into the final five weeks. And, oh yeah, it probably made selling tickets to Meadowlands Stadium a whole lot easier.
