Found October 22, 2012 on The Awesome Boston:
PLAYERS: Phil Simms
TEAMS: New York Jets
A.B. Mistakes happen. Announcers get names, numbers & scores wrong all the time. It’s part of the job and they are only human – and the games are live. But New York Nance not understanding what’s happening is beyond a simple mistake. It wasn’t like the Green Bay – Seattle game where whoever made the catch won the game. In this case it was either a fumble and the Patriots win or the Jets are facing 4th down.  The Jets were down 3 and this wasn’t a scoring play – where is the confusion? Phil Simms would have corrected Nance but he was too busy also being a New York homer.

Mark Sanchez kicks ball out of endzone for safety (Video)

Many New York Jets fans expected starting quarterback Mark Sanchez to show off his arm today against the New England Patriots.

During the second quarter of play, Mark lost control of a hand-off to Shonn Greene and had to kick the...

They are being complimentary and keeping the bulletin board material to a minimum.  It doesn't seem right and worries me a little.  Could...

Jim Nantz butchers ending of Jets-Patriots game (Video)

CBS announcer Jim Nantz loves to script his endings, and in this case, it looks like the practice backfired on him.
