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.
The New York Jets have released quarterback Mark Sanchez, as expected. But wait, there’s more!
The Jets’ decision Friday evening to cut quarterback Mark Sanchez and sign Michael Vick marked the end of an era for fans.
In other words, the free-agent QB won’t be immediately typecast as a backup. But he shouldn’t expect to be handed the starting job, either.
Jets GM John Idzik needs to make a signing here. He should do it because, quite honestly, Geno Smith is not the answer at quarterback.
Their fans want DeSean Jackson in the worst way. The Jets? We’ll see. New York is reportedly one of several teams that have contacted the Philadelphia Eagles about the talented-yet-volatile wide receiver.
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.
