Sexy Rexy Keeping His Mouth Shut is Good for Jets Fans

Since Rex Ryan’s appointment as head coach for the New York Jets January 18, 2009, Jet fans have embarked on quite the roller coaster ride. When he was hired, many of us felt a huge sense of relief.

Ryan: Albert Who?

But Haynesworth, specifically, it’s not like we had to know where he’s at … he’s just a big guy. But they got a lot of good ones. Vince Wilfork’s the guy. I think that Kyle Love kid is underrated.

PREVIEW: Patriots (5-3) @ NY Jets (5-3)

Some things in life are just better in twos: socks, gloves, Miller High Life's and the Jets and Patriots playing each other. With no disrespect to the team's in Pittsburgh and Baltimore but the rivalry between New York and New England may just be the best in the sport.With only their record and standing in the AFC East serving as similarities, the Jets and Patriots are polar...

Jets need to trust Sanchez this week

The Jets were 2-2 at the beginning of October, coming off a second straight road loss. Rex Ryan promised publicly and privately that the team would return to their “ground and pound” roots before they faced the Patriots.

That is the last you will see those three words listed consecutively alongside my picture until, at the earliest, January. We???ve been here before.
