It’s too bad that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers didn’t choose to wear their throw back uniforms Sunday against the New York Jets. As someone who has followed the Buccaneers since 1976, I’ve witnessed some horrible football in my life.Sunday was some terrible football. While there were positive moments coming away on Sunday, but the majority of the game featured a team that was undisciplined, unorganized and played chaotically for most of the contest. This is not what I would have expected from a Greg Schiano led team at the start of his second season.
The tone for the Buccaneers afternoon was set early, on the first drive as a matter of fact. During the first drive, the Buccaneers call time out at 13:05 due to a communications issue with QB Josh Freeman‘s helmet. After the time out, Tampa draws a delay of game penalty. How does that happen when the team doesn’t even huddle up after the time out. Then, before running another play, Tampa calls another timeout. Freemen is then sacked at 2-2...

A few extra thoughts on the New York Jets week one win after sleeping on it, re-watching the game and watching highlights of Geno Smith being pushed out of bounds 200 times. Look at that bench celebration, just terrific!
1. Stephen Hill was impressive in the short and intermediate passing game, displaying good hands and toughness. He has also become a contributor in the running...
Game time: 1 p.m. ET, Sept. 8
The season hasn't started yet, and things already seem bleak for coach Rex Ryan and the New York Jets.
A familiar face is looking to make sure of it.
With rookie Geno Smith starting at quarterback, Ryan and the Jets attempt to put their tumultuous preseason behind them when they welcome their former star cornerback Darrelle Revis and the...
Rex Ryan's best offseason move was placing his faith in himself during a watershed moment in his professional life.
Although Ryan has been rightfully criticized for curious decisions surrounding his quarterbacks in the past year his defensive acumen is beyond reproach. He is football’s Raymond Babbitt a savant who has built a career flummoxing some of the best offensive minds...
The New York Jets brought veteran journeyman quarterback Brady Quinn in as an insurance policy after Mark Sanchez and rookie Geno Smith went down with respective injuries. The team released Quinn last week in a financial move. If Quinn had been on the roster for Sunday’s game, his entire salary for the 2013 season would have been guaranteed. In a move that was not unexpected, Brady...
Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that Jets QB Mark Sanchez could have a partially torn labrum in his right shoulder.
Mortensen noticed Sanchez was passing the ball with his left non-throwing arm. Apparently doctors believe Sanchez might have a partially torn his labrum on his right shoulder when taking that big hit against the Giants in preseason.
It had been rumored that Sanchez...
Geno Smith picked a great time on Sunday to play sound football for the New York Jets, and with the help of a perfectly timed late hit, it was just enough to propel the Jets to a narrow victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With one win in his pocket, is it possible that Geno Smith will lead the Jets to a respectable record in 2013?
Well, the short and simple answer to my own...
Bart Scott and Darrelle Revis are no longer in the New York locker room and Rex Ryan isn't boasting much anymore. Still, that doesn't mean a Jets player won't give out guarantees and trash talk their opponents.
The Jets have some pretty terrible expectations this year. They've got virtually nobody on offense except rookie Geno Smith. They lost their best player in...
Willie Colon is only in his first season with the Jets after six years in Pittsburgh, but he appears to have his new team’s rivalry with the Patriots down pat.
Just minutes after Colon and the Jets had polished off an 18-17 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday, the offensive guard was asked about this Thursday’s game in New England. Colon, a Bronx native, left no doubt about his...
New York Jets defensive end Mo Wilkerson is just trying to fit in. The former first-round pick has been with the team since 2011, so he is more than familiar with New York’s philosophy — talk trash, radiate confidence, and pray you can back it up. On Monday, Wilkerson told Newsday’s Bob Glauber that he […]
It goes without saying that cornerback Darrelle Revis has been gearing up to face the New York Jets ever since his former team declined to give him the type of contract he desired and instead traded him to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
One of Revis’ close friends wonders though if Revis should even bother to play in Sunday’s season opener.
“I don’t think the Jets team or the...
Dee Milliner is no stranger to playing in big games having played in two National Championship games while at Alabama before the New York Jets drafted him in April. In front of almost 77,000 screaming fans at MetLife Stadium, it was no surprise that Milliner's nerves were running high. The Jets' rookie cornerback had a very solid performance in his pro debut.
When the New England Patriots opted to sign Danny Amendola over veteran Wes Welker, there was only one major factor that could derail their plan.
That is the risk of injury.

Sometimes reality isn’t quite what it seems, and sometimes you’re the Jets.
The New York Jets were viewed as something of a circus last season and that perception seemed to follow them into 2013. Rex Ryan as quick to dispute that notion on Tuesday.
After a Week 1 win against the Buccaneers, Ryan and the Jets have a short week ahead of their Thursday night showdown with the Patriots...
Pegged as one of the NFL's worst teams heading into the 2013 season, the New York Jets earned a hard fought win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.
