It’s pretty obvious that the Jets desperately need a starting cornerback, but what’s just as apparent is they never really wanted Antonio Cromartie to return.
For a team that has done way too much losing over the last few years, Gang Green has little to lose by giving Vick a shot. And maybe, just maybe, the Jets can say they actually did something during free agency.
Craig has made it crystal clear that he wants the Jets to sign free-agent quarterback Michael Vick, while Boomer isn’t so sure that it will necessarily be a match made in heaven.
The four-time Pro Bowler, who spent the past five seasons with the Eagles, only played in seven games in an injury-plagued 2013.
Vick can hurl a ball across area codes, while we’re still not sold on Smith’s arm. Vick may not run a 4.2 40-yard dash anymore, but he probably runs a robust 4.4. Smith often runs like he’s wearing snowshoes.
As far as the fans and many in the media go, it is almost a foregone conclusion that Mark Sanchez will not return to the Jets for a sixth season. And yet it may not be that simple. Nor, frankly, should it be.
For all those who believe the Jets need a legitimate veteran quarterback to push incumbent Geno Smith in training camp, there might be a solution in the works. Michael Vick, anyone?
After starting the season 0-6, the New York Football Giants have won two games in a row. New York’s defense once again did not allow a touchdown, as Michael Vick re-injured his hamstring, and rookie Matt Barkley could not rally his troops as the Giants defeated the Eagles 15-7 in Philadelphia. The win raised New York’s record to 2-6, while Philadelphia fell to 3-5 on the season.
Oh, the possibilities of what might have been had the Giants received similar efforts from the get-go. Instead, they head into the bye at 2-6, thinking about how they might scrape their way to .500.
Eli Manning played error-free football as the New York Giants beat the Philadelphia Eagles 15-7 Sunday.
The Eagles will attempt to snap a franchise-worst, nine-game losing streak at home when the Giants visit “The Linc” on Sunday.
The New York Football Giants seek to extend their winning streak to a modest two games as the team faces the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. The Giants fluid offensive line situation changed again this week, after starting center David Baas was placed on season ending injured reserve. The Eagles enter the contest relatively healthy, although last week’s starting quarterback, Nick Foles, is likely out with a concussion.
The New York Football Giants hope that earning their first victory of the season on Monday night against the Minnesota Vikings will be a springboard to greater success in the second half of the 2013 NFL season. Meanwhile, the Philadelphia Eagles found out on Sunday that they are not ready for prime time, as the Birds fell to the rival Cowboys 17-3. These two longtime rivals renew pleasantries in Philadelphia this Sunday.
Eagles backup quarterback Nick Foles tossed two fourth quarter touchdown passes, as Philadelphia rallied to hand the New York Giants their fifth straight defeat to start the season. With the win, Philadelphia climbed into a first place tie with the Dallas Cowboys, who lost at home to the Denver Broncos. Both Dallas and Philadelphia are 2-3 on the season.
The only thing that separates the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles is Philly’s surprise win over the Washington Redskins on opening day. While the G-men have dropped four straight to open the 2013 NFL campaign, the Eagles have dropped three in a row, including a 54-20 drubbing at the hands of the Denver Broncos last week. Both teams are focused on playing 60 minutes of football in Eagles coach Chip Kelly’s first tilt in the Meadowlands.
