“The Stick” says its last public goodbye after a run of Super Bowl success; baseball greats like Willie Mays and home run king Barry Bonds; the 1989 earthquake that interrupted the Bay Bridge World Series; and even The Beatles’ farewell concert.
One of the beauties of football, where on-field narcissism is suppressed by pads, helmets, flags and facemasks, is the ancient axiom that no player is above the team. Revis is quickly forgetting.
“All I needed him to say was that he apologizes and he won’t say my name again — I got that out of him,” Weatherford said. “I got that out of him, and I’m good. I’m not looking to stir the pot any more by suing him. That’s all I wanted.”
Why not go all in? Bring Terrell Owens into the circus. Ryan can wear a ringmaster outfit on the sidelines, something the Jets could market in advance of Halloween. Set up three small rings on the sideline. Owens could ride in on a white horse.
Now this is no way to speak about a potential employer.
Free agent wide receiver Terrell Owens has a message for the Jets: Sign me!
The fissure between Johnson, Mike Tannenbaum and Rex Ryan is so pronounced that it has slid from sidebar to spotlight. Ryan somehow lost his native hubris and, along with his missing girth, he literally looks like a coaching carcass at the dais.
The Jets have a big problem. OK, they have many. But the issue du jour is at wide receiver, a position already thinned out by injuries and expected to receive its biggest blow yet.
Too often we hear of someone with daddy issues who uses a tough puberty to preclude them from trying. Curtis Martin is not only what’s good about football, but what’s good about sports, about men, about mankind.
Rex Ryan believed Santonio Holmes suffered a broken rib during Saturday’s scrimmage. Luckily for the Jets, x-rays were negative.
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.
Bernard Hopkins, a formerly sublime fighter who had a chokehold on the middleweight division for a decade, stuffed his feet, fists, and Everlast gloves into his mouth. Again.
We already know Darrelle Revis wants Antonio Cromartie back in green and white next season. The Jets’ outspoken cornerback is now lobbying for New York to make a play for embattled Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco.
Rex Ryan’s Jets may have whiffed in the AFC Championship Game, but that didn’t stop two unlikely sources from heaping praise on New York’s boisterous head coach Tuesday night.
There is a generational schism over the notion of talk inside the chalk, which includes a cornucopia of forms, from end zone dances to pre-game predictions.
