If things don’t change for New York, there isn’t going to be a repeat of 2007. Instead it will be another year out of the playoffs.
Now I know how Eagles fans felt all those years. Now that he’s moved on to call the shots for the Jets offense, Marty Mornhinweg has not adjusted his bias even while saddled with a rookie quarterback.
To paraphrase Rex Ryan, Eli Manning didn’t get into the NFL to serve as Peyton Manning’s little brother.
Four fourth-quarter possessions for Gang Green. Three of them ended when one of Geno Smith’s passes ended up in a New England Patriots player’s hands.

Santonio Holmes’ return to the football field Sunday was marked by one catch, 45 snaps and no setbacks.

Coaches and players around the league are losing patience and speaking out against the fill-in officials following a slew of questionable calls in the games Sunday and Monday night.
Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano didn’t break any NFL kneel-down rules and still isn’t apologizing for his aggressive tactics of going after the Giants when they were lined up in victory formation.
