NFL fans know the football anthem “I’ve Been Waiting All Day for Sunday Night.” But the more appropriate title for a song leading into Sunday night’s Jets-Panthers game would be: “I’ve Been Waiting All Preseason for a Jets Touchdown.”
Say what you will of Wayne Hunter’s play, he has owned up to every mistake and only ever worked hard at his craft. He deserved better.
It appears the Jets aren’t sold on Hunter. New York recently “explored trading” away the offensive lineman, according to the New York Daily News.
Don’t tell Jets coach Rex Ryan that Monday night’s 20-16 loss to the Houston Texans doesn’t count. “I hate losing, our team hates losing,” Ryan seethed after the game. “I don’t care if it’s preseason.”
It’s hard to look right past a large group of 300-pound men, yet that’s what most football fans do.
Yes, Eli Manning will return to the lineup – and he’s made it clear he’d like to stay in the game as long as possible.
