Nevermind Braylon Edwards, the Jets Should Bring Back A Different Ex-Player, Jerricho Cotchery


With the constant injuries at wide receiver for the New York Jets, there has been much talk about who they should bring in.

There is the option of the Cleveland Browns Josh Gordon.  As the Browns looked like they were just going to start unloading (after the trade of second-year running back, Trent Richardson), many speculated what it would take to get the burgeoning star.  For a guy who is one misstep from a year suspension, some felt like a 4th rounder tops would work.   But then the Browns started playing well…

Some are still clamoring for the return of fan favorite, Braylon Edwards, something the Jets have resisted due to the lack of his special teams work.

So what can the Jets do? Jump in the time machine and get back Jerricho Cotchery. Continue reading

The Islanders and the Impossible

From the Broken Lighthouse Project to Breaking the Penguins


“Kansas City, home of the Islanders.”
“Seattle, home of the Islanders.”
“Hartford, home of the Islanders.”
“Quebec, home of the Islanders.”

Nassau Coliseum, not home of the Islanders.

It is 2009, and that is all we know of the Islanders future. Continue reading

Rangers Beat the Flyers and Get Back to .500 But Lose Captain Ryan Callahan To A Possible Shoulder Injury

Ryan Callahan. Ilyas Bryzgalov

The New York Rangers defeated the Philadelphia Flyers 2-1 Tuesday night for their 2nd straight victory, sending their record back to .500 at 3-3.  Henrik Lundqvist had perhaps his best performance of the 2013 season, only giving up a goal midway through the 3rd and the Blueshirts were boosted from goals by Michael Del Zotto and Ryan Callahan at MSG.

But it is the injury to Captain Cally that has everyone worried.

The Jets…and the P Word

I won’t say it.  This Jets team doesn’t deserve it.

A month ago, there was no reason to believe the word should ever be uttered again.

A team that has sputtered, made terrible mistakes, encountered injury after injury, has a lemon of a foundation, and has only been consistent in being awful offensively…they should be dead in the water.

So not a chance – I won’t say the word.

The Many Faces of Eli Manning

ESPN and Grantland’s Bill Simmons once termed the phrase “Manning Face”, a term of non-endearment towards the Colts’ long time QB.  As Malcolm Gladwell once coined its meaning:

“The look of someone who has just faced up to a sobering fact: I am in complete control of this offense. I prepare for games like no other quarterback in the NFL. I am in the best shape of my life. I have done everything I can to succeed—and I’m losing.

In the years since then, Peyton’s brother, Eli, has entered the same elite level of play Gladwell describes, and with it, has developed some of the same faces his brother has.

So in dedication to his latest one, here are the top five Eli Manning Faces on Record:
