Call it Joe being Joe if you want, but Namath has his opinions when it comes to the Jets’ quarterback competition.
The quarterback negotiated for the number with punter Ryan Quigley, who previously wore No. 1, during workouts and the two came to an agreement.
Mornhinweg insists during a conference call Tuesday that the Jets signed Vick last month for the “important role” to push Smith, who was rocky in his rookie season, and make him a better quarterback.
“I’m not paying attention to the Giants,” the two-time Pro Bowler said. “What’ve they done? Signed some guys. Big deal.”
Rex Ryan says it’s “time to deliver” on expectations that he and New York Jets fans have for the team. More than anything else, whether they do or not will likely be directly tied to whomever wins the quarterback competition.
Those who want SUNY Cortland to ban Michael Vick are wasting their time, the school said Thursday.
There are some people who just won’t let Michael Vick’s past go. A little more than 1,600 of them according to the most recent count.
While Michael Vick will compete with Geno Smith for the starting job in New York, Mark Sanchez is coming to Philadelphia as insurance.
After finding out that Mark Sanchez signed a one-year contract with the Eagles, Boomer and Carton wonder why the Jets didn’t bring him back.
“We don’t pencil anything in right now,” Jets general manager John Idzik told WFAN co-hosts Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton on Thursday morning. “We let things play out and so many things can happen.”
It’s hard to fathom the frothing resistance over Michael Vick. To hear the more jaded Jets fans talk about it, you’d think they just signed George Blanda or Charles Manson. He’s either washed up or worn out his welcome.
The Jets head coach delivered quote after quote on Tuesday, sounding as confident as ever after finishing last season with a surprising 8-8 record.
Like Smith before him, Boomer once called signals for Gang Green and when he did so, he too wore the No. 7 – see where this is going?
In a perfect world, the Jets would be equipping Geno Smith — and only Geno Smith — for the 2014 season. Only they aren’t, and I can’t say I blame them. But their plan at quarterback will end up being a wise decision.
Some Jets fans who are also dog lovers and animal advocates were not happy to hear the news that quarterback Michael Vick has been signed to the team.
