Defeat Is Not an Option for the Jets

The last time that the Jets met the Patriots, they were in a really bad place. The Jets had just had two horrible losses and it looked as if they were going to have yet another disappointing, over-hyped season. But oh have the tides changed. The Jets are coming off of a beautiful beating of the Buffalo Bills. And the Patriots are coming off of two straight losses—which is something...

Jets coordinator: Brady gets a “little more anxious”

The Jets have been noticeably quieter this week leading up to their Sunday night game against the Patriots, although it’s clear they aren’t lacking for confidence. Antonio Cromartie thinks he has the book on Wes Welker. Jets coordinator Mike Pettine doesn’t see the same Tom Brady on film that he usually does. “It seems to…

Pick 6 – Jets vs. Bills: Jets on a Buffalo

Matthew Kanter takes a look at the Jets win over the Buffalo Bills and makes six observations from the game. 1) Deeeeeeeeefense – Now that was fun to watch.  I assumed the Jets would be able to handle the Bills aerial attack due to Fitz’s inability to truly stretch the field, but the clamps were locked from the get go.  On the first drive, Kyle Wilson and Eric Smith both put...

The Patriots Get Exposed

Let's get something clear here for a moment: Despite being tied for the division lead at 5-3, the New England Patriots are still probably going to make the playoffs. Four of their last five games are against teams with losing records (including the winless Colts in the most-flexworthy Sunday Night game ever), and they still excel at beating up on hapless opponents. That'...

The Truth And The Myth Of The New England Defense

A year ago, no one would argue that the first round pick of the New England Patriots was a far better immediate return than the Jets first round pick Kyle Wilson. Devin McCourty nearly got the nod for Defensive Rookie of the Year, something that eventually went to one of the greatest defensive players of his draft class and someone who should have won the Heisman as a defensive...

Woody wants a Green Monster

The owner of the Jets urges his fans to bring throat lozenges. He wants Tom Brady to have to call for the earplugs. In the biggest game of the season, and one of the biggest of his ownership, Woody Johnson wants MetLife Stadium to be a Green Monster Sunday night...

No deep threat for Pats? Sorry, OC Bill O’Brien disagrees with that assessment.

Since Randy Moss departure, the Patriots really haven’t had a legitimate deep threat, a receiver to stretch the field and make opposing safeties play honest. When asked about that during a conference call today, and how much not having a deep threat has hindered Tom Brady and the offense, we received an interesting answer from offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien. He completely...

Making The Grades – Giants at Patriots

By Jeremy Gottlieb, Patriots Daily Staff Who, exactly, are the New England Patriots? Are they an elite team with championship aspirations? Are they one of a truckload of very NFL teams that contain a serious flaw? Are they the confident, mentally tough outfit Tom Brady has referred to more than once in the aftermath of two recent losses? Or are they mediocre, an also-ran? Sorry to...

Take Two-sday: Too Reliant on Welker and Gronkowski?

Tom Brady is becoming too reliant on Wes Welker and Rob Gronkowski, and the offense is struggling because of it.

Jets vs. Patriots: 12 Pack Of Predictions

What else can I say? 12 Pack. Jets vs. Pats. It doesn’t get any better. 1. Tom Brady is getting sacked at least three times and will turn the football over at least once. He also won’t crack 300 yards through the air. 2. The other quarterback? Mark Sanchez will put together a performance very similar to the one he had in the playoffs last year. 3. Shonn Greene will be the leading...

Star of the game Eli Manning proved just how elite he is. And he showed he is at minimum in Tom Brady's class. The quarterback engineered two fourth-quarterback touchdown drives, including the game-winning, 80-yard march, hitting Jake Ballard for a 1-yard touchdown with 15 seconds remaining. He finished 20 of 39 for 250 yards and two touchdowns. Turning point Ballard's...
