If the Jets are entertaining any notions of moving up in the draft to get one of the two top-rated quarterbacks available, they better look in the rearview. At least one team is reportedly plotting a power move.
The Eagles went from being able to wrap up a second straight NFC East crown at home to three weeks later being locked out of the postseason fun. The Eagles won 10 games, but will have nothing more to show for it. It never should have come to this.
Somebody should thank this man for his service. He deserves it and then some.
The New York Giants (6-10) hoped to end their season on a winning note, as much as the Philadelphia Eagles (10-6) wanted to end a three-game losing streak. The Birds got a blocked punt for a touchdown and withstood an Odell Beckham onslaught to beat Big Blue 34-26 at MetLife Stadium.
No one expected that the season finale between the Philadelphia Eagles (9-6) and the New York Giants (6-9) would be a meaningless encounter for both teams. While the Giants have won three games in a row for the second time this season, the Eagles dropped out of playoff contention with their current three-game losing skid.
LeSean McCoy ran for 159 yards and a touchdown, Mark Sanchez had his first scoring run in almost three years and the Eagles beat the Dallas Cowboys 33-10 in a Thanksgiving battle of NFC East co-leaders Thursday.
It’s heating up in Green Bay. Say what? Yep, the Packers couldn’t be hotter.
It’s fitting that Philadelphia, where our beloved nation was born, may represent the rebirth of a once-burgeoning career.
“Who’s had a successful season as a quarterback for the Jets? Who’s the last one? Probably Chad Pennington? I can’t think of who’s been successful for the Jets.”
Sanchez started his first game since Dec. 30, 2012 for Nick Foles, who broke his collarbone last week. And he looked better than he did when he was the franchise QB for the Jets.
As upsetting as it may be that the season is more than halfway over, I think we have a chance to have a terrific final stretch considering how many teams are in the mix for a playoff spot.
Ever since Joe Namath’s last snap as a Jet, the team has had about as many starting quarterbacks as Defense Against the Dark Arts professors at Hogwarts.
Moments after the Jets’ 34-21 loss to Green Bay on Sunday, social media was buzzing about the timeout call that wiped out a tying touchdown late in the fourth quarter. It conjured images of other great mistakes in franchise history.
Not that it’s fun to poke fun at the Jets, but these days, it’s just so darn easy. What went down Sunday was yet another example of bad fortune that this team has experienced during its history.
Cody Parkey made field goals of 54, 53 and 25 yards to help the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New York Jets 37-7 in the preseason finale Thursday night.
