It was a controversial year for the NFL, but nothing is stopping the popularity of America’s most watched game.
Just remember, a reward lies at the end of this two-week bombardment.
Talk about a bad stretch for Mark Sanchez. The Jets quarterback fumbled away a chance to beat the Patriots, and was voted by his peers as the second-most overrated player in the NFL. But that’s not all.
If they can’t pull things together, the Jets will find themselves on “Eliminated From The Playoffs Island” a lot sooner than they thought.
Former Giants’ wide receiver Mario Manningham agreed to a two-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday, adding to a talented receiving corps which could lure Peyton Manning.
The NFL lockout appears to be coming to an end. When it does, the Jets will quickly be in the middle of the utter madness of free agency. General Manager Mike Tannenbaum and coach Rex Ryan will have their hands full making this team better.
Rex Ryan knows Plaxico Burress and Randy Moss are out there, but his main concern lies with the Jets’ free agents — for now.
Seriously, which receiver would you pick from this group of aging controversy magnets: Plaxico Burress, Terrell Owens or Randy Moss? That’s an easy one — Burress all the way.
The Jets appear to be on the outside of the Plaxico Burress post-jail sweepstakes, though they’re reportedly in the mix for another talented-yet-troubled wide receiver.
Mike Tannenbaum already said he wants his wide receiver trifecta back in New York next season. How he’ll manage to re-sign Braylon Edwards, Santonio Holmes and Brad Smith is still anyone’s guess.
Jets fans may have one less thing to worry about. According FoxSports.com’s Adam Schein, Randy Moss won’t be anywhere near the Gang Green clubhouse next season.
The Jets came within a whisker of the Super Bowl three months ago. They are a team meticulously built with youth, veterans, and ever-elusive harmony. If Adam Schein’s latest report doesn’t ring true, they might sever the serenity with ten talons screeching across the chalkboard.
According to multiple reports, the Jets may be interested in bringing Randy Moss to New York. That is, if the NFL lockout doesn’t put the kibosh on the 2011 season.
Terrell Owens wants to show Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis that he’s no slouch. The Bengals receiver bristled Tuesday at the mention of Revis, who is expected to cover him when the teams play on Thanksgiving night.
Ralph Vacchiano, Giants beat writer for the New York Daily News, joined Neil Keefe to talk Giants football with the G-Men set to begin the second part of their schedule.
