The New York Jets: A Failure From The Top Down

The New York Jets failed from the top down this year. It started in the off-season with a handful of perplexing and ultimately season killing decisions. First off, Mike Tannenabum evaluated Wayne Hunter capable of starting at right tackle and cut ties with Damien Woody. Tannenbaum failed to learn from a previous mistake of undervaluing a veteran lineman, when he did the same thing...

New York Jets Controversy Continues With Kris Jenkins, Mark Sanchez, Bart Scott

The turbulence towards Mark Sanchez and the New York Jets is flying from every corner following a deeply disappointing 8-8 season. From Bart Scott’s $10,000 fine for an obscene gesture aimed at a photographer to seventh-round rookie quarterback Greg McElroy painting a toxic image of the team’s self-centered locker room to ex-Jet quarterback Boomer Esiason turning his views...

No Surgery for Sanchez

Right now, no surgery is planned for QB Mark Sanchez, I’m told. He played with a pinched nerve in his neck/right shoulder area for the final six games. Statistically, his efficiency on deep passes declined over the final six games, possibly due to the “burner.” Sanchez did have an MRI at some point, and the course of treatment for now is rest. — Rich Cimini, ESPN NY This...

Cowboys, Chargers, Jets all in denial

Jets backup quarterback Greg McElroy did something incredibly stupid recently. He told the truth, and not the happy "we had problems, we'll be back" version NFL teams love to tell this time of year. He dropped what the kids like to call "the real." How do I know what the kids are saying? Because I live by a university and love to eavesdrop on college student...

Are the New York Jets Victims of Overconfidence?

Even the princely Darrelle Revis lost his cool at times this season. I’ve never hidden my feelings about New York Jets Head Coach Rex Ryan. I think he’s too chatty. Much of his blustering is more agitating than entertaining. His preening in front of the press lacks the authentic eccentricity of his father, the great Buddy Ryan. It’s almost as if uses every opportunity to prove...

Jets Re-Sign CB Lankster

LaDainian Tomlinson Contemplating Retirement

New York Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson made an appearance on XX1090 Radio in San Diego and indicated that he’s seriously contemplating retirement. “I am contemplating retirement,”  said Tomlinson. “That’s what I told my coaches and told my agent and everybody. That’s exactly what it is. This is the first time in my playing career that I’ve actually honestly...

Tomlinson’s post-Jets interview should be epic

Jets quarterback Greg McElroy, a seventh-round pick who landed on injured reserve in the preseason, raised eyebrows with a candid radio interview criticizing selfish individuals in the locker room.  But an even more candid and blistering interview is certain to come. Once running back LaDainian Tomlinson severs ties with the Jets, or vice-versa, look for…

Jets fine LB Bart Scott $10K for gesture

Scott (Detroit Southeastern) walked past reporters and then turned, stuck out his middle finger and used an expletive while telling a photographer to get the camera out of his face.

Jets should Manning up

The Jets were pretty banged up following their playoff victory over the Patriots last January. As in 53 guys...

The Fifth Down: The Jets, the Colts, and More Jets: Judy Battista Answers Readers' Questions

Judy Battista, the N.F.L. reporter for The Times, answers questions from readers.

Mike Tannenbaum acknowledges Mark Sanchez “didn’t play well”

The man who traded up in the 2009 NFL draft to select Mark Sanchez says it’s time for Sanchez to play better. Jets G.M. Mike Tannenbaum was blunt in an interview with Mike Francesa on WFAN, saying Sanchez’s growth as a quarterback “isn’t where it needs to be” and adding, “No, he didn’t play well.”…

MetLife Stadium's Coming Out Party

MetLife Stadium hasn't heard many compliments during its first two years of existence. It has all of the worst traits of the wave of new stadiums we've seen come online in New York and elsewhere over the last few years. It is antiseptic, overly slanted toward luxury amenities and devoid of the character that made the buildings they replaced beloved parts of fandom. Making...
