If the Jets light up the MetLife Stadium scoreboard on Sept. 9, all will be forgotten. But if the offense struggles, you can bet the boo-birds will be out.
Welcome to “Backup Bowl 2012,” a matchup between an unreasonable facsimile of the Jets and an expected unreasonable facsimile of the Eagles.
Just a thought, but perhaps Rex’s starters should get a few plays against the Eagles’ backups on Thursday night in Philadelphia. Maybe then they’ll finally score a touchdown.
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.”
Embattled tackle Wayne Hunter was a no-go for the Jets family night practice Tuesday. “We had a conversation that was a personal thing and that’s the way that it will remain,” said Rex Ryan.
This morning both Boomer & Craig reacted to Peter’s take and then had some fun at his expense, at least Craig did anyway…
Cancel your breakfast plans; Thursday morning on WFAN will be must-listen radio. And the star attraction will be backup quarterback Tim Tebow, set to sit down with two of his harshest critics.
The Jets scored a 17-3 win over Big Blue last year as Gang Green took home the brand new piece of hardware. However, it wasn’t the trophy that the Jets had atop their to-do list last season.
An old, friendly face was at Jets Training Camp in Cortland on Tuesday. Ex-Jets quarterback Chad Pennington graced his presence in upstate New York to visit the team.
After two weeks of practices, meetings, fisticuffs and a reported team trip to the movies, the Jets finally get to lock horns with another team.
“We’re in a media business,” said Johnson. “We want to give our fans an insight.” Are you kidding me? The Jets are in a media business? This is one of the dumbest things that an owner can say.
Peter Schwartz covers the Jets for WFAN and after chatting it up with Jets owner Woody Johnson up in Cortland this morning, he picked up the phone so that he could let Boomer and Craig know what ole Woody had to say.
A crowd of 9,401 packed into SUNY Cortland Stadium. To nobody’s surprise, there were plenty of No. 15 Tebow jerseys in the crowd, but Sanchez was not devoid of his followers.
This is shaping up to be quite a weekend for Gang Green. The highlight of Friday’s practice was when Mark Sanchez threw a “game-winning” touchdown to Patrick Turner, after the defense dominated almost all of the workout.
Saturday marked the first practice of training camp that was open to the public. There’s been rain in town since the Jets reported on Thursday so perhaps that’s the reason that the crowd was smaller than I expected.
