Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
Mike Maccagnan didn’t just take six players over this past weekend. He drafted hope for a franchise forever hopeless.
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.
Any fan who doesn’t want him back should hang up their Jets jersey right now. You’re either insane or jealous. Or both.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Those behind FireJohnIdzik.com have moved on to their next target: owner Woody Johnson.
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.
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.
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.”
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.
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.
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.
