Michael Vick walked into the New York Jets’ locker room as a starting quarterback for the first time in just over a year. So, as a couple dozen reporters gathered around him, Vick was well aware of the magnitude of the moment.
This Sunday’s game in Kansas City means nothing to me. Michael Vick can throw five touchdown passes and the Jets can put forth their best effort of the season on both sides of the ball and it won’t mean jack.
To summarize: The 1-7 Jets have all the pieces in place for a winner. Wonderful up-and-coming quarterback, great coach, great front office, great owner. What?!
Jets fans probably feel like Roy Hobbs in “The Natural,” forced to listen to psychobabble about how losing is a disease. But we stand by our teams no matter how dire it gets.
How do we even put postmortems on this flat-lined franchise? Is it off with Rex Ryan’s vocational head? Or do we blame the GM who didn’t see fit to spend $20 million in cap space?
Never a dull moment with Rex’s Gang Green…
Jets general manager John Idzik’s press conference aired during Mike Francesa’s show on WFAN on Monday afternoon, and the host was not at all impressed with the GM’s performance.
John Idzik blames himself for the mess that has become the New York Jets’ season. No, the general manager isn’t happy with the job he has done. And, no, this isn’t what he envisioned in his second year in charge of the franchise.
Jeremy Kerley always figured he’d stay right where he is. The New York Jets made sure the reliable wide receiver didn’t go anywhere, signing Kerley to a four-year contract extension on Tuesday.
There’s a common misconception about the Percy Harvin trade that needs to be cleared up before we can all move forward. The Jets didn’t do it to save their season.
The wide receiver met the media after practice Monday, saying he feels “welcome” in New York after a series of reported missteps with the Super Bowl champion Seahawks.
The New York Jets’ newest wide receiver doesn’t deny he has had some issues. But he also wants to be judged from what he does starting now, not just his checkered past.
Unless Geno Smith has truly turned himself around, the mouthy Percy Harvin will yap so hard that Rex Ryan will look back at Santonio Holmes’ last year here as the good old days.
The Seattle Seahawks were on the verge of releasing Percy Harvin on Friday before the Jets traded for the talented-but-troubled wide receiver, league and team sources told ESPN.
The Harvin trade, if it works, will see Idzik take the lion’s share of the credit. It also will show that he ignored this team’s greatest need to the detriment of their playoff hopes.
