As the Jets head into their bye week, you know what you can say about Gang Green’s playoff chances? Bye Bye!
The Jets retired Dennis Byrd’s number 90 on Sunday. The fans at MetLife Stadium gave the inspirational Byrd a standing ovation.
Byrd’s triumph over tragedy will take center stage this Sunday when his No. 90 jersey is retired at halftime of the Jets-Dolphins game at MetLife Stadium. The painful memories of that fateful December Sunday from 20 years ago will surely come to mind.
Drew Brees would probably be among the first to tell you that he will never erase Unitas’ legacy. It was Unitas who demonstrated how explosive the passing game could be, and he changed pro football forever.
He isn’t the “Sanchise.” It is something that Jets fans need to come to grips with; the reality that now in his fourth year, quarterback Mark Sanchez isn’t going to be the second coming of Joe Namath.
Mark Sanchez has many years left in the league, but he has this year to prove that his first two years were more representative than the last two. Another 8-8 season could cement his fate as a second or third-tier quarterback.
Now that I have the NFL Network (thank you, Cablevision), I’ve been able to sink my teeth into all of the great programming they have to offer. Jets fans, don’t miss this show Wednesday night.
The Jets retired Curtis Martin’s number 28 during halftime of Sunday’s game against the Bills.
“I’m concerned with how the Jets are trying to build a team and win a championship,” Namath said. “They seem more interested in the headlines.”
The thought of the early battles between the Giants and Jets brought about some of the hardest-hitting and nastiest battles of the football season.
New York Jets’ favorite Curtis Martin was among the class enshrined
This is shaping up to be quite a weekend for Gang Green. The highlight of Friday’s practice was when Mark Sanchez threw a “game-winning” touchdown to Patrick Turner, after the defense dominated almost all of the workout.
With the Jets, I have to deal with schizophrenia. Keep expectations low. Don’t invest your passion this year. It has never been as easy as it sounds.
The idea that teams use training camp to get ready for the regular season is basically folly. Teams use the preseason to keep players from getting hurt. Coaches and general managers don’t want to chance season-ending injuries in the preseason.
When the Jets acquired Tim Tebow, Joe Namath wasn’t a fan of the acquisition. He also took it upon himself to question the hiring of Tony Sparano as offensive coordinator. But as fast as you can say “ay ay ay”, Namath has had a change of heart on both subjects.
