Schwartz: Woodzik Made The Right Call In Bringing Back Rex

Gang Green will watch the playoffs on television for the third straight year, but head coach Rex Ryan will return in 2014. And that’s a good thing.

Schwartz: Taking A Closer Look At The Rise Of ACL Injuries

You want to have fun, but you want to stay in the game. While the professional and collegiate athletes are getting the proper guidance, it’s important to make sure that youth players take part in the right strength programs.

Schwartz: Can Ryan Strome Help Turn The Isles’ Season Around?

Strome has been ripping up the American Hockey League. He leads the AHL in scoring with 33 points and has won the last two AHL Player of the Week awards.

It’s not easy to work under these conditions. In fact, it’s downright uncomfortable. It’s especially tough if you’re expendable. The pressure is unbearable. You just know the end is coming.

Schwartz: Reasons For New York Teams To Get Into Thanksgiving Spirit

In the metropolitan area, we have teams that did well and not so well over the past year, but all of them have something to smile about.

Schwartz: Yes, Our Son Plays Youth Football

I know what you’re all thinking: Why in the world would we allow him to play football? Believe me, my wife and I have been told by family and friends that we’re nuts.

Just like the Cosmos of old, it was an international star that came up with the big goal, as Marcos Senna helped the Cosmos win their sixth Soccer Bowl.

Schwartz: Postcard From New Orleans — Media Mania!

Tuesdays during Super Bowl week are known for two things — media day and the media party.

Schwartz: Postcard From New Orleans — The Fun Begins!

After the 49ers arrived on Sunday, it was the Ravens’ turn to touch down in New Orleans on Monday. They held their first media session at their hotel, the Hilton New Orleans Riverside.

Schwartz: Postcard From New Orleans — Welcome To NOLA!

I landed in NOLA on Sunday night, and it didn’t take long to realize how much time and effort the city of New Orleans and the Host Committee put into preparing for the Super Bowl.

Schwartz: Farewell, Jets Beat; Will Rex’s Gang Show Up Sunday?

I’ve collected a lot of memories in three seasons covering the team for WFAN. Here’s a list of my five favorite moments.

Schwartz: Tebow Turned Out To Be A Phony

My guess is that the Jets took one look at Tebow during off-season workouts, then another in training camp, and then came to the decision that they made a horrible mistake.

If you think there were plenty of empty seats this year, just wait and see what MetLife Stadium looks like in 2013.

Schwartz: Jets Taking Right Approach Into Must-Win Against Titans

The Jets have three games to go. They could very well win all three but still not make the playoffs. But they have the right approach, maybe for the first time in a long time.
