Frustrated and maybe a bit embarrassed, Lauren Silberman fought back tears after kicking her way into NFL history.
Dreams were dashed, but history was still made Sunday night for an East Village woman trying to become the first female player in NFL history.
Lauren Silberman has scant chance at making the NFL — but she’s guaranteed to make history.
The New York Jets have fired offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo and hired former NFL punter Louie Aguiar as an assistant as Rex Ryan filled out his coaching staff.
There’s not an easy answer to the Revis conundrum. Rebuilding an empty Jets roster is the key to the process for the new GM. Starting with the best defensive player in the sport should be the way to go.
“We appreciate Governor Christie’s leadership and commitment to the Super Bowl,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said. “We look forward to working closely with the state to help present a memorable week for our fans, teams, and partners, and media from around the world.”
John Idzik will try to turn things around for the troubled New York Jets. Woody Johnson believes he’s up to the massive task.
NFL owners have realized that finding the right guy on the sideline is cheaper, more stable and maybe even more impactful than the right guy under center.
The next time a Tebow becomes available, this new general manager has to look at the possibilities with calmness and a clear-cut plan on how to utilize such a player. If not, then he should simply move on.
The two players are among the Jets’ biggest uncertainties heading into next season, with Sanchez coming off a miserable year and Revis recovering from a serious knee injury while also having a sticky contract situation.
According to a report, coach Rex Ryan wanted the backup quarterback to be more involved all season, but offensive coordinator Tony Sparano was opposed to it.
The decision to start Sanchez isn’t about Tebow, of course. It’s about the Jets, as always, and their penchant for punting all the goodwill and luster that they muster. And that’s because they do almost everything for the wrong reason every season.
Greg McElroy has a concussion — which he didn’t reveal until Thursday — and will be replaced by Mark Sanchez as the Jets’ starting quarterback in the season finale at Buffalo on Sunday.
Tim Tebow said that he never asked out of running Wildcat plays last week, but the Jets’ backup quarterback acknowledges that Rex Ryan may have misunderstood him.
Ryan’s swagger made for plenty of headlines during his first three seasons in New York. Now, it’s what the coach doesn’t say that raises some eyebrows.
