TEAMS: New York Jets
The day the New York Jets retired the No. 28 was the day I decided I would never ever wear my Curtis Martin jersey again.Not out of anger, but out of respect. Curtis Martin led the AFC in rushing yards his rookie year and went 10 seasons rushing for 1,000 yards each to become the second player in NFL history to do that.However, I am not a numbers guy or an analyst. As an ordinary fan I write from the heart.Curtis Martin's biggest impact can't be measured in yards. His greatest achievements go far deeper. You can't put a percentage on inspiration. Curtis Martin has demonstrated quality sportsmanship that children and future players can only aspire to become. For that matter current athletes too. He showed that hard work and dedication to something, be it football or anything else one wishes to accomplish, pays off.He even said himself that he wasn't the most talented player on his team, but made sure he was the hardest working. Listening to Curtis Martin speak when he...

Jets guard Matt Slauson: Tim Tebow is not an option

You’ve certainly heard the rumors that the Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez is on the hot seat. With that comes the prediction that started in the off-season that Tim Tebow will overthrow the USC-bred signal caller and all will be well in the land. If that happens things for the Jets could in fact get worse. The last time that I checked, the Jets take the field with 11 players at...

Interview with Rob Carpenter: Former Jet WR

Rob Carpenter: Former New York Jet If you’re a New York Jets fan, you probably have a lot of concerns right now. Injuries have sidelined Darrelle Revis and Santonio Holmes for the season, many fans and media are calling for Tebow to start, Mike Tannenbaum’s job may be on the line, and the list goes on and on. I recently spoke with former New York Jets wide receiver, Rob Carpenter...

NFL Rumors: Jets QB Mark Sanchez Does Not Feel Threatened By Tim Tebow, But Is He Simply In Denial?

The New York Jets may make a change for change’s sake. It is one of the worst thing that an NFL team can do in this day and age. They panic and make a rash decision based on the poor play of one player or on the desires of the fans. Generally speaking, the say when a coach or general manager listens to the fans, he will soon be sitting with them. But what if it is the owner making...

Jets' quarterback destined to continue

The New York Jets quarterback drama is destined to continue, regardless of what is said by any of the team’s decision-makers. Ryan hasn't been pushed to start the popular backup QB over the struggling starter, Tannenbaum told reporters Thursday. "Rex, (owner) Woody (Johnson) and myself, we talk all the time," Tannenbaum told the Star-Ledger. "We have a great...

Tebow Can't Throw, Jets GM Failed: Ex Jets OL Damien Woody

Asked by the NY Post whether he felt Tim Tebow had put pressure on NY Jets incumbent quarterback Mark Sanchez, former Jet offensive linemen and current ESPN analyst Damien Woody said, perhaps holding... Full story at Bob's Blitz ~ http://www.bobsblitz.com

With Revis out, it's Cromartie vs. Johnson

Antonio Cromartie knows exactly how to shut down Andre Johnson. It's all right there on film from two years ago. That's when Darrelle Revis held the Houston Texans wide receiver to just one catch for 7 measly yards in the New York Jets' 30-27 victory. Easy enough, right? Well, with Revis out for the season with a torn knee ligament, it will be Cromartie's job Monday...

Tebow Time?

Sing it with me New York Jets’ fans – “Oh eee oh, Tee Bow. Oh eee oh, Tee Bow.” The chant NFL Network talking heads Michael Irvin and Deion Sanders used during Tim Tebow’s rise to stardom (sort of) last year is poised to make its return soon. With the Jets’ offense in shambles, the only way to save the season may be to turn to the former Florida Gator. It is going to have to...

Houston Texans (4-0) at New York Jets (2-2)

Houston Texans (4-0) at New York Jets (2-2) Prior to the Jets’ 34-0 home loss to the 49ers last week, one NFL executive compared the Revis injury to any other team losing it’s starting quarterback and he was so right. Without Revis, they can’t do any of the things to normally make them good defensively and for a defensive minded team, that’s absolutely devastating. Without...

Report: Jets plan on using Tim Tebow more on Monday night

According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com, Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reported that the New York Jets plan on using Tim Tebow more on Monday night against the Texans. Glazer also says that Tebow got more practice time this past week .  I wonder how much of that time was spent under center.  Mark Sanchez has to be on thin ice right now.

New York Jets Keys to the Game: Week 5 vs. the Houston Texans

1. Stop the run - San Francisco absolutely decimated the Jets last week thanks to their ability to run the ball. They barely took to the air, instead relying on a run-heavy attack that racked up over 200 yards on the ground. Houston has a great run game, spearheaded by All-Pro running back Arian Foster. If the Jets want to win, they’ll have to find a way to shut down Foster, Ben...
