You look at Mark Sanchez sometimes, and you wonder if you’re not watching a top-five quarterback. And then you watch him in the first half against Buffalo, and you wonder if you’re not watching some college freshman making his first start. It’s maddening.
New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes raised nearly $34,000 for sickle cell anemia research with a charity bowling event Monday night attended by dozens of teammates, including Mark Sanchez and coach Rex Ryan.
With the emergence of their new defensive slogan – ‘Lay ‘Em Down – Smack ‘Em – Yak ‘Em’ – Craig was curious as to what exactly is going on with the Jets after winning their 3rd straight Sunday in Orchard Park.
Boomer called the Jets defensive performance on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills the best in the ‘Rex Ryan era’ and then we learned about a new battle cry apparently adopted by the defensive unit, ‘Lay ‘Em Down – Smack ‘Em – Yak ‘Em’.
The Jets have now won three in a row but things are far from perfect. They still have a lot of cleaning up to do, especially on the offensive side of the ball.
The Jets went vintage in their 27-11 win in Buffalo on Sunday, riding a tough defense and physically imposing their will on the Bills in what looked like an old school game from head coach Rex Ryan.
So maybe, all statistics aside, Eli Manning is the seventh or eighth-best quarterback in the NFL. But you know who’s glad he has Manning on his side? Tom Coughlin.
After Eli Manning led his Giants to a 24-20 victory over the Patriots, Justin Tuck pointed out that you can’t spell ‘elite’ without ‘Eli’. Now clearly Tuck must read the Blog on a daily basis because on Friday I wrote that very thing.
Forgetting for a moment that the Buffalo Bills are actually a New York team, you couldn’t ask for a better Sunday of NFL football from a New York perspective.
That Jets head coach Rex Ryan is set to make a cameo appearance in the upcoming Adam Sandler movie is just another reason to love him. Yet, it may not matter if you or the movie critics love Rex that much. That isn’t the point of this or anything Rex does.
It’s amazing what a difference three weeks can make. Three weeks ago, the Jets were stumbling through a three game losing streak, Now, all of a sudden, the Jets find themselves just one game behind the Bills and Patriots for first place in the AFC East.
Jets fans have been wandering in the wilderness of the NFL for over 40 years, grasping at hope. But now, maybe, finally, it is over. Perhaps now the “Same Old Jets” can tied to a stake and burnt.
Rex Ryan thinks his New York Jets secondary is second to none, no matter what anyone thinks. And that includes Randy McMichael.
We know Mike loves tweaking the Jets and their fans, which has helped create the friction between the franchise and Francesa. He is, after all, an entertainer. And, no matter your take on his interview with Darrelle Revis, you can’t say you weren’t entertained.
Rex Ryan needs to know that the echo of every promise must eventually land a Lombardi Trophy. Otherwise, he will go from cherubic to chubby, from cute to crude, from winner to loser in a New York minute.
