Over the next 48 hours, New York Jets general manager John Idzik will have the chance to prove that he was the right hire seven months ago to finally reverse the curse on this franchise.
Petke proved why we love him and why he is the personification of New York sports, more than any other coach in this city. Petke didn’t back down, just like a true New Yorker.
Without so much as taking a single snap on Saturday night, Geno Smith became the future of the Jets franchise for the simple reason that he isn’t Mark Sanchez.
with a new season and a fresh slate, Mark Sanchez doesn’t deserved to be booed.
Pernetti is not forgotten at Rutgers, and on days like Saturday when a Saeed Blacknall verbals to the program, it is clear that his work continues to live on.
The Jets aren’t known for winning, but under Ryan they’ve done just enough of that to make themselves relevant
Heading into its final year in the Big East — scratch that, the American Athletic Conference — Rutgers needs to set the ship aright and do it quickly. What it needs is for Tim Pernetti to return as athletic director.
Though the initial returns are good, it’s too early to claim there’s a quarterback controversy in Jets-land — and there shouldn’t be one this season involving Geno Smith.
The selection of Geno Smith was labeled as just the latest gaffe by a Jets team, as just more evidence that this team and management in particular is a “circus.” That line of thinking is now a thing of the past. It isn’t the case around this team anymore.
The Jets lost more than a backup quarterback or even a potential starting quarterback on Monday. They lost a reminder of what exactly it means to be a man of character and conviction, whether it is convenient or not.
If Revis decides after next year that he wants another big payday, then the Jets will be left with no Revis and no compensation were he to depart via free agency.
The next time a Tebow becomes available, this new general manager has to look at the possibilities with calmness and a clear-cut plan on how to utilize such a player. If not, then he should simply move on.
Here on “Black Monday” as the team clears out its lockers, the Jets must clear out the dead weight from this season. It started with the removal of Tannenbaum.
Tim Tebow deserved this opportunity to start on Sunday but instead fear ruled the decision. Fear of what Tebow in his unconventional style might do. Fear that Jets fans will see the fraud of Sanchez and clamor for more Tebow.
Heads will likely roll this offseason, but Jets fans must be out of their minds to consider trashing head coach Rex Ryan. In fact, this might be the finest coaching job he’s done in his time in New York.
