Kris Jenkins: “Football is Hell”

In today’s New York Times, former Jets defensive lineman Kris Jenkins gave an incredibly illuminating interview to Greg Bishop about the realities of football, the mindset of the players, and the physical pain the gain imparts on their bodies. My favorite quotes are excerpted below, but I urge you to read the entire thing: You ever been in a car crash? Done bumper cars? You know...

Jets Post Game: Rex Ryan – 11/17/11

The Saddest Paragraph of the Season

[The Jets'] five losses are more than the Patriots, Bills, Steelers, Ravens, Bengals, Texans, Titans and Raiders have. The Broncos are tied with the Jets but own the tie-breaker. Right now, the Jets are in 10th place out of 16 teams in the composite AFC standings. Taking the four division winners out of the battle for the wild cards, the Jets would have to jump over four teams...

Tim Tebow didn’t win this game; the Jets lost it. Not that anyone will ever remember it that way. Sounds about right.

Von Miller unfazed about possible fine for hits on Sanchez

On Thursday night, the Broncos defeated the Jets, thanks in part to a strong defensive effort led by rookie linebacker Von Miller, who regularly harassed New York quarterback Mark Sanchez.

Loss to Broncos brings Sanchez’s game mismanagement into focus

He was once nicknamed "The Sanchize" during his rookie season because of his importance to the team. Now, the New York Jets might just want to sanitize themselves from third-year quarterback Mark Sanchez after another mistake cost them a win on Thursday night in a 17-13 loss to the Denver Broncos.
