Topics I've Started
Posted 1 Dec 2013It's beyond obvious but here it is anyway.
Any fans that stayed in the stadium for the entirety of that mess.
There's just no other way of putting it.
Posted 3 Oct 2013Given that Tampa contacted each and every other team in the NFL looking for trade partners and having found none, they've released Josh Freeman. Where do you think he eventually signs?
There are a number of choices but I listed the top 3 potential destinations I can see happening. Yes.....I included Oakland even though they just signed Flynn this past offseason. I believe that's a possibility as Freeman could go to Oakland sending Flynn to Jacksonville in exchange for low to mid-round draft choices OR MJD given he's unrestricted after the season and JAcksonville would want something in return. Crazier things have happened.
Posted 5 Sep 2013Leon Washington
Source: Jets interested in Leon Washington
September, 5, 2013
By Rich Cimini | ESPNNewYork.com
The New York Jets are showing interest in an old favorite, free-agent kickoff returner Leon Washington, a league source confirmed. Washington, released by the New England Patriots in the final cut-down, also has drawn interest from the Giants. He worked out for them Tuesday.
After cutting Joe McKnight, whom they drafted in 2010 to replace Washington, the Jets may be looking for a new kickoff returner. Right now, the job probably belongs to Clyde Gates. Washington, 31, made the Pro Bowl last season with a 29.0 average and one touchdown. He also could be a change-of-back back and a strong locker-room presence. The Jets have three backs on the roster, plus the suspended Mike Goodson.
General manager John Idzik was a Seahawks executive during Washington's three-year run in Seattle. The Jets could wait until after Week 1 to make a move on Washington. As a vested veteran, his salary wouldn't be guaranteed if he signs after the first game.
Washington was a popular and productive player with the Jets from 2006 to 2009, when he suffered a severe broken leg. Contract negotiations turned acrimonious and he was dealt to Seattle. TheJetsBlog.com first noted the interest in Washington.
Posted 30 Aug 2013Report: Sanchez unlikely to be ready to play Week 1
Neither Geno Smith or Mark Sanchez played on Thursday night for the Jets, meaning the quarterback competition everyone's watched this offseason basically comes down to whether Sanchez is healthy after suffering a now-infamous injury in the fourth quarter during Week 3 of the preseason. According to one report it's "unlikely" he'll be ready.
Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reported Friday morning that Sanchez probably won't be ready to go when Rex Ryan's crew tees off against the Buccaneers in Week 1 of the regular season.
If Sanchez isn't ready, obviously Geno will start. Geno hasn't lit up the world with his preseason play thus far but if Sanchez isn't going to be ready, there's no other choice. What has to happen for Sanchez to get ready?
Glad you asked!
Rex could ostensibly wait until later in the week -- Thursday or Friday -- to see if Sanchez can get put the maximum amount of cheese on the ball. But naming a starter earlier is the smart play, if only to avoid all the scrutiny that'll come with making that call.
Also the smart play? Starting the guy who's healthy. If there's a debate about whether Sanchez can get healthy enough to work his way into the discussion then he's not healthy enough.
The Geno Smith era is close. Can you feel the excitement?
Mind you.....this report is coming from the douche Manish Meta, but it is what it is. I guess we get to see what Smith can do against the "Island".
Posted 13 Jun 2013Since we all know that we have some journalists here on the site, I thought I'd share this little tidbit I just came across while watching Jets Nation.
