Keidel: Losing Is A Habit, And The Pathetic Jets Have Perfected It

Winning is a habit. So is losing. And the Jets have perfected the latter. The Jets are so collectively detached that it’s hard to know if they know the difference.

Manning Stresses Leadership, Seizing Opportunities As G-Men Prepare For Falcons

“When you’re in this spot, when you’re in this position, you’ve got to take advantage of it because you don’t know if you’re going to get another chance,” Manning said. “…It’s tough to make it and you’ve got to win big games.”

Silverman: The Mannings Are Leaders Like Few Others

The big reason to admire Manning, the father, is for the kind of men his sons have become. What they do is take responsibility for their actions on the field. What they don’t do is make excuses when things go wrong.

Keidel: Want That Lombardi Trophy, Jets Fans? Sanchez Must Be The ‘Sanchize’

Keidel: Tom Coughlin The Greatest Coach In Giants’ History? Why Not?

Is Tom Coughlin the best coach in Giants history? The fact that we now ask that after he’s been fired countless times by fans and media –- yes, I’m owning up to my end of myopia –- speaks to Coughlin’s discipline and decency, if not his dominance.

Keidel: Jets Are Green With Giant Envy

The Jets flexed their Napoleon complex by trading for Tim Tebow – perhaps the last player they need right now. It was a way of acting out, Big Blue’s little bro showing the world that they can grab a headline or two, too.
