Joe Namath: If Mariota Is Available At No. 6, Jets Should Take Him

Joe Namath, the greatest quarterback in franchise history, thinks Maccagnan needs to roll the dice and pick Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota if he’s available at No. 6.

Dyer: True Jets Fans Want ‘Fireman Ed’ Back At MetLife

Any fan who doesn’t want him back should hang up their Jets jersey right now. You’re either insane or jealous. Or both.

Dyer: You Just Watch — Rex Ryan Will Get The Last Laugh

The man can still coach, the evidence shows. Sadly, it won’t be here in New York with the Jets. But he will do it somewhere, and he will win if given the proper support and commitment.

Dyer: Big Ten Better Not Allow Rutgers To Be Left Out In The Cold

Even though Rutgers just completed the program’s most impressive season since 2006, there is a likelihood that the Scarlet Knights, despite being bowl eligible, will not be heading to the postseason.

Dyer: Red Bulls Will Likely Never Have Another Player Like Thierry Henry

It was as improbable a love story as has ever been written in New York City sports, an enigmatic Frenchman and a city that wants passion from its stars.

Dyer: In Their Desire To Push Geno, Clueless Jets Just Disrespected Vick

Despite the limited sample size, Michael Vick has done far more than Geno Smith with the Jets’ offense this season and, as a result, deserves the same respect and courtesy next week against the Dolphins.

Dyer: Pay The Man! Red Bulls Head Coach Mike Petke Deserves An Extension

It is time for Dietrich Mateschitz to belly up to the proverbial bar as the owner of the New York Red Bulls and do the right thing for his head coach.

Dyer: Bold Move By Jets GM Idzik, But Too Little, Too Late

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.

Dyer: Julie Hermann Made A Mistake, Let’s Move On

Now on the job for almost a year-and-a-half as athletic director at Rutgers, reports on Friday said that Hermann made a joke in the fall of 2013 during a departmental meeting when she said that they need to get in touch with potential donors but not “in a Sandusky way.”

Dyer: Reflections On 9/11, When My Father Stood Tall

He walked away from that day. Many wouldn’t. But in those moments of crisis he showed his character, and why he will forever be the man I hope to someday be.

Dyer: For The First Time In A While, The Jets Are Doing Right By Their Fans

That the Jets would reach out to Anzalone to help revive the chant, even if he turned them down, is proof positive that this organization isn’t tone deaf.

Dyer: Jets Are Now Idzik’s Team, And The GM Will Be Judged Accordingly

Please take a seat, Mr. Idzik. If your team doesn’t do well this year, it might start to get a little warm. Not hot, mind you. Just a little warm.

Dyer: Cocky Rex Is The Best Rex — And The Jets Know It

Rex Ryan is no longer the emasculated head coach of the Jets, neutered by the talk of being fired. The guns are blazing and he’s a little cocky again – though he likely would call it confidence. Either way, his team will need him that way.

Dyer: I Believe That — I Believe That — I Believe That Soccer Is Only Going Up

Fans lustily cheered, groaned and chanted “I believe,“ joining the chorus sung all over the country. But they didn’t just “believe that we will win.” No, they also believed that soccer has arrived.
