Originally written on Turn On The Jets  |  Last updated 11/14/14
Here at Turn On The Jets, we decided to take a page out of Robert Mays book over at Grantland (a polite way of saying rip his article idea off) by counting down the 115 days until the New York Jets kick off, with a daily reason to get excited about their return. Mays has the whole NFL to work with, we only have the Goddamn Jets…now there is a challenge, step your game up Mays! We continue today with the entertainment of Mike Francesa vs. The Jets (Note, you can track this entire series right here) At this point it isn’t worth rehashing the entire history of Mike Francesa’s angst towards Rex Ryan and the New York Jets. My timeline is frequently filled with people complaining about Francesa’s attitude toward the team and my response is why even get mad about it? Francesa is a caricature at this point. As a Jets fan, you should listen to him if you want a cheap laugh. Get a kick of out of the trolling and attempts to rile up the fanbase and skip on by using your radio dial. The team could win the Super Bowl and the next day he’d open with talking about JOBER and GEORGIA RODDY. So the best thing to do is sit back and laugh (and make sure to follow this on Twitter.) I’m not a big fan of JR’s Myth to be honest. I’m not a fan of clowns in general. JR, Rex, Nate, Crow Marty, Bozo. Not a fan. — Mike Francesa (@MikeFrancesaNY) May 15, 2013   So youah believe in Rex and its not a one yeah thing but Rex didnt get a new contract? Sounds like a bunch of crap, ok Mistah Its Sick. — Mike Francesa (@MikeFrancesaNY) April 30, 2013   Ah youah gonna cut Mock Sanchez aftah June 1st?!?! AH YOUAH GONNA CUT HIM? Wouldnt it be easy to just say he will be on da team!!! — Mike Francesa (@MikeFrancesaNY) April 30, 2013     - DAILY NEWS STORY PITCH OF THE DAY - 675 words on the selfishness of Chris Ivory keeping dreadlocks when he could be tackled from behind by them. The hair choice is a direct reflection of the “Me. Me. And more me attitude perpetuated by Rex Ryan” penned Gary Myers, Hall of Fame Voter. RANDOM JET OF THE DAY – BJ ASKEW! - Played four seasons for the Jets from 2003-2006, never scoring a touchdown or having a play for over 14 yards from scrimmage. The Jets spent a 3rd round pick on him. 3rd! Terry Bradway at it again.
