When the lockout finally resolved itself and the NFL offseason got going after a long wait, Giants general manager Jerry Reese felt a lot more heat than Mike Tannenbaum.
Reese's decisions were met with a lot of guff from Giants fans who felt he let too many key contributors walk away without bringing in enough talent to get the team back to the playoffs this season. Tannenbaum made a splash with the Plaxico Burress signing, but his other moves didn't create nearly as much buzz.
Now that we're at the bye week, it looks like the catcalls for Reese were misplaced. His decisions have paid off more often than not and some -- Jake Ballard for Kevin Boss, in particular -- look like downright strokes of genius.

The New York Jets currently sit at 4-3, likely a game or two behind the place many people thought they would be at this point of the season.

Jenny Vrentas of the Star-Ledger talked to Hunter about his rough start, and also explained how he’s taken ownership of his improvement since the tough games...

Former Alabama and New York Jets punter Greg Gantt, who may be best known for having two punts blocked in a 17-16 loss to Auburn in 1972, has died. His sister, Patricia Gantt, said Gantt died Wednesday of complications from heart disease and diabetes.
When you play the Jets, you feel it for a while after the game is over. Despite the flippancy of the headline, this story is rather serious. If you’ll recall, early in the 4th quarter during Sunday’s game, Chargers offensive lineman Kris Dielman suffered a dangerous-looking concussion.
From watching the game footage, it looked Dielman, while trying to push at the line during...
