Turn On The Jets:
New York Jets
New York Giants
Being a New York Jets fan certainly isn’t the easiest thing in the world. Generally, it provides a consistent cycle of inevitable let-downs and heartbreak. What has been interesting is that the Jets have found a way to impact numerous holidays in recent years. So much so, that in my 25 years on this planet very few holidays have passed without me having a distinct Jets memory related to it.
December 21st, 1997 – Jets Lose 13-10 in Detroit - As a 10 year old Jets fan, I’d never seen my team anywhere near the playoffs. They always seemed like this enormous thing that my lowly team would never get to be a part of. Yet, all the Jets needed was a win in Detroit to sneak in. The top of my Christmas List that year was a sloppily scribbled “JETS PLAYOFFS” After waking up at the crack of dawn and putting on my Keyshawn Johnson jersey, I watched an early lead trickle away behind interceptions from Leon Johnson (a running back) and Ray Lucas (an early version of Tebow). Why oh why were these p...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
The NFL would be exponentially better from a media and soundbite standpoint if every team had its own Joe Namath. The legendary New York Jets and Los Angeles Rams quarterback is one of the true bright spots of the media circus that surrounds the team that plays in MetLife Stadium and doesn’t win Super Bowls, and I’m sure many Jets fans would disagree with that assessment, but...
Sometimes, we all just need a little pick-me-up at the office. Just something to know people care. Well, Tim Tebow got exactly that on Tuesday, as an “anonymous fan” sent him a bouquet of balloons bearing the phrase “You’re special” on them, according to the New York Post’s Bart Hubbuch. After Tebow’s previous week, in which he was bashed by anonymous teammates, it’s...
It’s a bit of a shame that the Jets play on a short week against the Pats this week because I would like to savor that curb-stomping Rex Ryan and his defense handed to former Jets coordinator Brian Schottenheimer’s current St. Louis Rams offense just a little bit longer. After all, we haven’t had all that much to be pleased with this year, right? It sure was sweet to be on...
WHERE'S THE TURKEY
A poll asked Americans for their preferred Thanksgiving dinner guest, and you really have to see the results and where Tim Tebow ranks.
In the New York Jets 27-13 victory over St. Louis on Sunday, Tim Tebow completed his one and only pass (although calling it a pass is a bit misleading, it was really just a forwarded lateral). Amazingly Tebow has now put up a 100% completion rate in each of the last 3 games he has thrown the ball.
However, his “pass” against the Rams netted the Jets -1 yard, so in reality...
Charles Carton pointed out on this morning's Boomer & Carton program that NY Jets owner Woody Johnson asked the NFL to have his team play on Thanksgiving.
Owner Woody Johnson actually requested...

Last week: 27 (+1)
The Jets were bound to bounce back last week. Teams that lose back-to-back games by 21 or more go 36-16 ATS in their next game. However, it still isn’t a promising sign going forward. For every one good Mark Sanchez performance, he has 3 bad ones. Don’t believe me? This year he’s had 3 games in which he’s had a QB rating over 90 in which he...
As we are only one day away from Thanksgiving, this story about New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow is a rather-heartwarming one.
According to Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post, some random fan (or kissing-up teammate) sent Tebow the below bouquet of balloons back on Tuesday:

The New York Jets have signed wide receiver Jordan White and cornerbacks Donnie Fletcher and Darrin Walls from the practice squad, hours before the team's game against the New England Patriots.
All three are available to play in the game Thursday night.
White was a seventh-round draft pick out of Western Michigan in April who re-signed with the Jets last month after being...
The New York Jets announced wide receiver Jeremy Kerley (hamstring) will play on Thanksgiving against the New England Patriots. Kerley was limited in practice most of the week but the team is confident he's healthy enough to make an impact.
Kerley is a solid WR3 this week considering the Patriots have one of the worst pass defenses in the league. When these two...
The Jets look to keep their playoff hopes alive with an upset over the Patriots. Miami hosts the Seahawks, while the Bills try to corral Andrew Luck.
If you’re a Patriots fan, that was sure a fun second quarter.
The Jets handed New England four turnovers and yielded 35 points in just 15 minutes of action — all after a scoreless first quarter. The totality of the Jets’ breakdown is hard to encapsulate with words, but perhaps it was best personified by the image of New York quarterback Mark Sanchez running straight into his...
Lead writer Nick St. Denis and AFC East Daily contributors Dan Begnoche and Sean Donovan pick the Thanksgiving divisional slugfest between the New England Patriots and New York Jets.Nick's take: Ah... Thanksgiving dinner, beer and Jets vs. Patriots. Few things are better. Rex Ryan will have Gang Green ready, and the Jets will divide their rushing attempts evenly between Bilal...
The New York papers might want to make fun of Bill Belichick but Rex Ryan is having none of that.With his team trailing the Patriots in the division by essentially four games (Pats hold tie-breaker) he's not in a position to trash talk. In fact he went the opposite direction and went to bat for Belichick in the face of his criticism for leaving Gronkowski in for the extra point...
NEW ENGLAND (49) d NEW YORK (19)
The Headline: Jets implosion sets platform for big Patriots win
To steal a line from Anchorman, “Boy, that escalated quickly… I mean it really got out of hands fast!” What the hell happened in that second quarter? After a scoreless first quarter the Patriots went on a scoring rampage in the second quarter thanks to the Jets turning...
