As I have noted before on Outside the Boxscore, there are plenty of moments when NFL referees look like bumbling fools. During the Seattle Seahawks/New York Jets affair, a referee with a giant towel trips over the foot of Seattle special teamer Chris Maragos: (Courtesy of SB Nation)

“Punting Canadian” – Seattle Seahawks punter Jon Ryan in the spotlight

Seahawks All Access I started this after the “Canada Day” Seattle Seahawks game but never got around to finishing it, all I managed to accomplish was the title.  The reason why I chose Jon Ryan to be the subject of this piece was two fold. First, he’s Canadian so he seemed to be the perfect subject following Canada Day at CenturyLink and second, he became this first punter...

Antonio Cromartie: Kiss my butt, Sanchez is our quarterback

New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez has one supporter in the locker room, cornerback Antonio Cromartie, who says Sanchez is the Jets only quarterback. “They can kiss my butt, Mark is our quarterback. At the end of the day, we could give a damn what anybody on the outside has to say." Cromartie said to the New York Post following the Jets 28-7 loss to Seattle. "Mark...

Jets' Mike Westhoff is a frustrated man

The New Yorks Jets highly regarded special teams coach Mike Westhoff couldn't believe what he was seeing from his unit two weeks ago against the Miami Dolphins. A punt blocked for a touchdown, a blocked a field goal, an onside kick recovered by Miami, and a slew of good returns. When asked about the special teams unit having bad games like that, "You can never sugarcoat...

Wilson throws 2 TDs in 'Hawks win

Russell Wilson threw touchdowns of 38 yards to Golden Tate and 31 yards to Sidney Rice, and the Seattle Seahawks sent the New York Jets to their worst start since 2007 with a 28-7 win on Sunday. Wilson was harried for much of the day by the multiple looks from the Jets' defense. But the Seattle rookie responded with key throws, hitting Tate on the opening drive, then connecting...

Seahawks WR, Sidney Rice takes shot at Tim Tebow

Seattle Times Seahawks reporter, Danny O'Neil tweeted out an interesting quote attributed to WR Sidney Rice in response to Golden Tate's TD pass to Rice: "His throwing motion was the worst. I thought we traded for Tebow for a second." Interesting given the fact the Seahawks played against Tebow and the struggling Jets today and quite funny in my opinion if true.   

Antonio Cromartie supports Mark Sanchez as Jets QB, tells critics to kiss his butt

The debate still rages. No not the one for the White House, that one actually had a date where a decision was made. The New York Jets continue the saga of the quarterback position on a weekly basis. Now 3-6 the Jets season is in complete shambles yet players and coaches still rally around Mark Sanchez as the teams quarterback. Antonio Cromartie was the latest to lash out at those...

Week 10 – New York Jets vs Seattle Seahawks

Oi vey… my first column that has to do with the circus that is the J-E-T-S  JETS! JETS! JETS! The (3-5) Jets head west to take on the 12th Man and the (5-4) Seattle Seahawks. Cornerback Antonio Cromartie went on air this week guaranteeing that the Jets will make the playoffs. Although the AFC is the weaker of the 2 conferences, and I do see a 9-7 team making the playoffs,  the...

The Seattle Seahawks Are The Team The New York Jets Hoped To Be This Season

    The Seahawks easily defeated the Jets 28-7 yesterday and Rex Ryan must be envious of how Seattle wins games.  The Hawks are using a strong running game, defense and timely passing to be in the hunt for a playoff spot.  This is the same formula the Jets used in 2009 and 2010 to reach the AFC Championship game.  However, things have gone awry for New York thanks to very...
