The Jets and the Steady But Uninspiring Need for Chris Johnson

Chris-Johnson-Titans-jets

Much of the Jets focus this off-season has been finding ways to surround Geno Smith (and now, Mike Vick) with playmakers for the passing game.

But in a switch of thought process, the last few weeks of rumors have surrounded not a wide receiver or tight end, but a running back.

That RB is former Tennessee Titans speedster, Chris Johnson. Continue reading

The Time Is Now For the Jets To Extend Rex Ryan’s Contract

rex_ryan_jets_saints_nfl_1

The New York Jets enter the Bye Week at 5-4, a record inconceivable to even the most optimistic of fans before this season.  The season has been up and down, something that could be predicted with an inconsistent rookie quarterback, but they have several wins over preseason Super Bowl favorites, such as the Falcons, Patriots, and Saints.

And while we too cannot predict how this consistently random season of win-loss-win-loss-win-loss-win-loss-win will go, we should all know one thing: It’s time to make it official and lock up Rex Ryan long term. Continue reading

The New York Jets travel to Cincinnati Sunday to take on the 5-2 Bengals.

It will be a tough task as the Bengals’ record stands at 5-2, leading the AFC North, and they are currently undefeated at home.

But on the Jets side, the focus will be on their team, and the struggle to become consistent behind a rookie quarterback. Continue reading

Geno Smith Might Be Improving, But His Jets Supporting Cast Definitely Has Already

geno-smith-jets-touchdown-bills

Geno Smith had a rebound game against the Bills in Week 3, passing for 331 yards on 55.2% throwing, with three total touchdowns and two interceptions.

It is a marked improvement over Geno Smith’s three interception 4th quarter against the Patriots the previous week, but we will have to see more to know if that is improvement, or the difference between playing home or away.

What we do know?  The pieces around Geno Smith have improved drastically. Continue reading

Mike-Goodson-NFL-Free-Agency

On Friday March 17, Jets running back Mike Goodson was arrested and charged on five counts including possession of Marijuana, and possession of a loaded gun with hollow-point bullets.

He was first taken the hospital due to alcohol intoxication before being brought to jail.  As of Friday, he had not made bail.

It may have been his first publicly cited criminal activity, but the result has to be the Jets releasing him, immediately. Continue reading

The Wartime General: Rex Ryan, Purpose, and Survival

rexchurchill

Winston Churchill is perhaps the most popular leader in British history.  He helped lead them to a victory in World War II.  At home, he helped set up a government coalition to unite and move to achieve great mobilization during the war period.  Churchill was a brilliant war strategist who knew not only how to motivate, but how to go about winning battles he was in, especially when he had the sudden backing and weapon of the United States following the Japanese Pearl Harbor attacks.

So why did this strong and popular leader suddenly lose an election in 1945, just months after one of the biggest victories in the history of mankind – the ending of the Second World War’s phase in Europe?

Buttface or Mild Hope: The Jets and Their Sanchez vs. McElroy Decision

sancheztebowmcelroyWe are essentially a week from marking a new era in Jets history.  Whether or not Greg McElroy gets the ball for Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, we have probably seen the end of Mark Sanchez as “The Sanchize”.  Mark Sanchez’s ineffectiveness for most of the 2012 season has sealed his fate as it exists.

The major question at this point is, who will Rex Ryan choose? Continue reading
