NFL Injury Report:
Oh the Jets. The
J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS! After flip-flopping
like a fat stack at IHOP on which quarterback was who and where, New York Jets
head coach, (blah) Rex Ryan, NOW commits to rookie New York Jets QB, Geno Smith.
Patra of NFL.com reports that the head of the three New York football
families, (even though two actually play in Jersey, who cares), New York Jets
head coach, Rex Ryan, has formerly backed rookie QB, Geno Smith. Dom Rex and the Jets are moving on from Mark
The Jets saga is one continuously bad movie, like the Sound of Music. On the other hand, the Jets yarn is a bad celluloid
version of Top Gun. Cougar [Sanchez] lost it and turns in his
wings and Maverick [Smith] takes over (ok, I balled my eyes out when Goose died
and I do every time even though I know it is going to happen).
The question still remains, why would New York Jets
quarterback, Mark Sanchez, be put into a meaningless game halfway through the 4th
quarter behind a third-string offensive line ultimately getting him injured. The answer is clear now.
In spite of Rex’s spotlight hogging verbiage about a good old
quarterback competition, Smith was going to be the starting QB from day one of
training camp. The only reason, as it
seems to me that Sanchez is on the team is because his ridiculous contract
makes him more immovable than Rex himself.
Geno was always going to be “the man.” Rex
has signed checks Sanchez’s career cannot cash. No matter, soon Rex will be driving the equipment truck for the Perth Amboy pee-wees in the rubber ducky league.
The Jets are in a tailspin and pilot Rex cannot get his
bearings. I can tell you this; it is
going to be a fun ride watching this bad film as it plays out in NFL theaters

New York Jets coach Rex Ryan defended his decision to spend Saturday at Clemson University with his son while NFL teams made cuts to set their 53-player rosters.
Ryan's son, Seth, is a walk-on at Clemson, which played Georgia at home. The coach says Monday that he spoke on Friday to ''several'' Jets players who were getting cut, and personnel decisions had been...
The feud between the New York Daily News and Jets head coach Rex Ryan has been one of the more entertaining subplots of the preseason, adding a new layer of absurdity on top of one of the biggest circus acts in sports. Combative press conferences, newspaper front pages, state Governors weighing in, and even the ridiculous notion put forth by NYDN sportswriter Manish Mehta of firing...
Everything that is wrong with the media outrage over Rex Ryan going to see his son playing at Clemson can be summed up in one sentence written by Mr. You Can’t Boo New York Daily News writer Manish Mehta.
By all accounts, Ryan has been a great dad, but sometimes the job must take precedence.
Story should be over right there.
Ryan won’t be able to attend any of his son’s games...
Manish Mehta writes, "Rex Ryan opts to attend his son's football game at Clemson instead of staying with the Jets on cutdown day. While veteran Antonio Cromartie supports him, one annonymous [sic] source says it is a 'big F.U.' to the players."
Jets fans took to the NY Daily News' comment section. And the sampling didn't even include mocking the spelling...
Rex Ryan and his new svelte figure are looking pretty pumped to be sporting Clemson orange. Can you blame him after the Tigers' huge win over Georgia?
Geno Smith has his offensive coordinator in his corner, and that just might help him win the Jets starting quarterback position by default.
Ian Rapoport was on NFL Network Friday, and reported that Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg prefers Geno Smith over Mark Sanchez.
Mornhinweg reportedly is a “big fan of Smith’s potential and believes he’s the better option, whether...
After all was said, much was in fact done. The New York Jets are moving onto a new era of football at the Meadowlands.
The team announced it’s not giving the starting nod to the guy who signed a $56M extension last offseason, but to its dynamic rookie Geno Smith.
Indeed Smith threw three picks in the third preseason game against the Giants, and has looked rookie-like at times,...
As Geno Smith appears to be the Week 1 starter, things have just gotten shakier for Mark Sanchez's hopes to start for the Jets this season.
This latest signing Quinn may confirm that the Jets fear Sanchez's injury is more serious than they initially tried to reveal, as a veteran backup will be needed if Smith becomes this season's permanant QB.
To make room...
The Jets’ quarterback competition is far from over, even as the regular season inches closer by the day, but Rex Ryan may finally have his starter for opening day.
Geno Smith is likely to start for the Jets in Week 1, according to ESPN. The rookie quarterback has been inconsistent this preseason, showing signs of poise and accuracy from the pocket but also throwing three interceptions...
