Today, via the Anaheim Ducks and Youtube, we found out whether or not that was true: Continue reading

Keith Olbermann made a return to ESPN airwaves on his old stomping grounds of ESPN2 with his new show, naturally called “Olbermann.”

What was old is new again and Olbermann wasted no time getting used to his new New York City digs before jumping right into the holes the New York Sports Media has dug around Rex Ryan and the Jets.  Continue reading

Could Rex Ryan’s Job Be In Jeopardy for Playing Mark Sanchez?

rex-ryan-presser-jets

The Jets had finally found out who their quarterback was.

After a long, drawn out competition throughout training camp and the preseason, Geno Smith had finally fallen behind Mark Sanchez Saturday night against the Giants, letting the incumbent maintain control of the Jets job for now.

And then Rex Ryan threw everything into flux, including, quite possibly, his job. Continue reading

As discussed earlier in the week, the Jets may have a minimum performance level for Geno Smith so low, some in the media believe the Jets QB competition is a farce.

Will The Jets Just Hand Geno Smith The Starting Job Because He’s Not Mark Sanchez?

geno-smith-mark-sanchez-preseason-jets

It is far from a shock that Mark Sanchez is not the popular pick at QB for the New York Jets.

But if a report in the New York Daily News is true, the Jets are ready to give Geno Smith the starting job – not for any exceptional game play, but with the mere accomplishment of not stumbling in his next preseason game. Continue reading

Alex Rodriguez’s Return Has Brought Controversy, But Also a Stronger Yankees Offense

a-rod-yankees-red-sox-dempster

Rare has there been a moment without some sort of negative cloud since Alex Rodriguez returned for the Yankees.  Even as he is playing in a Sunday Night Baseball game, he and the Yankees must contend with Red Sox pitcher, Ryan Dempster, going out of his way to hit A-Rod, in a possible act of revenge for his alleged “ratting out” of fellow players during the Biogenesis hunt.

In a particular storybook moment, Rodriguez would gain some revenge for the beaning and manager Joe Girardi’s ejection when he hit a home run for the Yankees, leading to a comeback on their hated Boston rivals.

But is this the only positive A-Rod has brought for the Yankees?  How about being a boost to one of their season-long issues? Continue reading

fireman-ed-jets

In a summer full of questions for the Jets (Sanchez! Geno! Sanchez! Geno!), Gang Green answered one today, albeit, one which takes place off the field.
