Rumors and Rants:
The 1958 NFL Championship between the New York Giants and Baltimore Colts is considered by most historians to be “the greatest game every played.” Or at least the most important, as it helped make football the American sport of the television age.
Certainly, it set the stage for the creation of Monday Night Football, which turned into a cultural institution in its own right. So it was fitting that this Monday night’s meeting between the Jets and Titans gave us the bookend to the ’58 NFL Championship.
Yes, this was the Worst Game Ever Played. But not in the unwatchable sense, like a game announced by Ron Pitts. This was the “Springtime For Hitler” of NFL games — so perversely entertaining that it had to be watched. People will be talking about it for years.
“Yeah, this game is bad, but it’s no 2012 Jets-Titans…”
Both teams managed to put together eye-gouging stats in different areas.
The Titans were 2 of 13 on third down and committed 14 penalties for 111 yards, a pair of stats that...

You know what’s really scary? A person (we’ll assume a male), @BraveGrancru, tweeting last night about how he’s going to kill Mark Sanchez. As the country deals with gun violence, fascination with guns and children being slaughtered, this thug, whether it’s a joke or not, tweeted some rather disturbing messages to the verified Mark Sanchez account.
It seems this isn’t...
Rex Ryan’s body language as the seconds ticked off the New York Jets’ last gasp for a playoff shot said it all.
Ryan’s reckless use of foul language, the shoulder bump/check of his ailing quarterback Mark Sanchez, the half-hearted mid-field handshake with Tennessee Titans coach Mike Munchak and the pouty stomp off the field told us everything that we need to know.
Tweet The New York Jets were eliminated from playoff contention as a result of Monday’s 14-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans. Contributing to the defeat were five turnovers (four interceptions and a fumble) by quarterback Mark Sanchez, who now has seven fumbles and seventeen interceptions on the season. The frustration among Jets fans has [...]
The Jets have mercifully pulled the plug on Mark Sanchez.
On Tuesday, hours after being eliminated from postseason contention, New York announced that quarterback Greg McElroy will start in Week 16 versus the Chargers.
The move was first reported by the New York Daily News.
While now official, the news comes as a no brainer...
The New York Jets' quarterback position continued to draw attention Wednesday. Coach Rex Ryan did not directly address questions about Tim Tebow's future with the team and Mark Sanchez, benched as the starter this week in favor of Greg McElroy, received death threats on Twitter that later were deleted by the sender. According to reports, Tebow will asked for a trade or...
The New York Jets had to win out, and get some help in order them to make the playoffs. They had a great shot at doing that with their last three opponents being the Titans, Chargers and Bills.
That all didn't matter if the lost last night, and that they did, on another QB Mark Sanchez terrible game that basically ended their dismal season. Thank God this possibility didn...
The New York Jets (6-7) somehow still have a chance to make the playoffs. The Jets will travel to Tennessee to play against the Titans. (4-9) The game is scheduled for a 8:30 pm EST kickoff and will air on ESPN as Monday Night Football.
In order to make the playoffs the Jets need to win their remaining three games and then hope that the Begnals and Steelers each lose one of their...
NASHVILLE Music City might be the home of country music, but the New York Jets departed here Monday night with a case of the blues.
Call them the playoff blues.
With their 14-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans at a sold-out and soggy LP Field, the Jets (6-8) saw their flickering playoff hopes extinguished in what turned out to be a comedy of errors for the visitors down the stretch...
Mark Sanchez blew the second chance Rex Ryan gave him. Now, it's Greg McElroy's turn to be the New York Jets' starting quarterback.
And, Tim Tebow? Well, he was leapfrogged by the third-stringer, fueling speculation that the team has little confidence in him as a quarterback.
Ryan decided to bench Sanchez on Tuesday after the fourth-year quarterback had another miserable...
The Jets hit another new low on Monday night, with Mark Sanchez doing all he could to set the quarterback position back a generation or two. Apparently, the Jets have seen enough.
the Jets have decided to start Greg McElroy — not Sanchez or Tim Tebow — on Sunday against the Chargers.
#EA Greg McElroy has been named the Jets starting QB for Sunday’s game with the San Diego Chargers...
Hard to believe a team that went to consecutive AFC championship games just two seasons ago, is at such a low point. Eric Mangini's team that head coach Rex Ryan inherited is nothing but a distant memory, and things keep getting worse for Gang Green.
The New York Jets' much maligned QB Mark Sanchez has been benched once again, this time possibily for good after throwing...
NASHVILLE -- The Titans committed 14 penalties and punted 10 times, but Mark Sanchez and the New York Jets' offense handed Tennessee a win Monday night. The last two of Sanchez's five turnovers -- his fourth interception of the game and a fumbled snap -- both came in the last two minutes, preserving the Titans' 14-10 victory. The loss eliminated the Jets from AFC...
Is it time to play Tim Tebow, or is Greg McElroy the answer? One could only hope that Rex Ryan and the 6-8 New York Jets are ready to make a quarterback change after last nights devastating 14-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans that took the Jets out of playoff contention. The Titans intercepted four passes by struggling Jets QB Mark Sanchez – winning for the first time in [...]
The Tennessee Titans (5-9) beat the New York Jets (6-8) 14-10, last night at LP Field from Nashville, TN.
It's a official. The New York Jets have been eliminated from playoff contention as they lost to the Tennessee Titans.
Mark Sanchez days as the starting quarterback of the Jets look like they are coming to an end.
He was horrible throughout the game by turning the...
The New York Jets’ playoff hopes ended in the most fitting way possible. Immediately after a shanked punt gave New York a great chance to come back and beat the Titans on “Monday Night Football,” the Jets turned the ball over on an embarrassing fumble.
The Jets were down 14-10 and had the ball at the Tennesse 25 with 47 seconds left in the game. Quarterback Mark Sanchez was...
