Matt Simms continues to cling to Jets' payroll

BY NICK ST.

My recap: Bills beat the Jets, 38-3

Heading into this game and for about the last 72 hours or so, I really didn’t think much about playoff aspirations or just playing out the string for the season. Instead, I thought a lot about what Buffalo had gone through last week with the snow. Now, I actually didn’t know anyone personally affected by it as my family/friends who still live in Buffalo were spared by the storm...

George R.R. Martin was scared to see Geno Smith on Jets' depth chart

The Jets have finally decided to give the reigns of the offense to Mike Vick, and on Sunday, it worked out well. The Steelers were down 17-0 before the most fans were in their seats, and the Jets hung on for a 20-13, wire-to-wire win. One fan, in particular, was pleasantly surprised. George R.R. Martin, author of the Game of Thrones, penned a blog entry about the Jets quarterback...

Bledsoe: Playing QB for Jets like being a sacrificed virgin

The New York Jets do not have a good track record when it comes to quarterbacks. They really haven’t had a great signal caller — one who is not past his prime — since Joe Namath was lighting it up in the 1960s and 70s. Let’s allow Drew Bledsoe to break it down for us...Read More

New York Jets: Mike Vick Hurt, Matt Simms in at QB

The Matt Simms era in New York City is officially about to begin. With Geno Smith not dressing for the New York Jets game against the Chiefs, Simms heard his name called as Mike Vick went down with an injury. It could be a best case scenario for the Jets. Mike Vick isn’t the long term answer at quarterback for the team and it doesn’t appear Geno Smith is either. Matt Simms is...

Jets add Matt Simms off practice squad

Michael Vick will start on Sunday for the New York Jets. While Vick has acknowledged that he needs to protect the football this week the Jets have added some insurance in the form of practice squad quarterback Matt Simms. Geno Smith has a shoulder injury and is questionable to backup Vick. That leaves the Jets in need of someone on the bench in case Vick is injured. Last season...

New York Jets: Matt Simms Should Start Against Chiefs

The New York Jets have, had, and continue to have major quarterback problems. Geno Smith played arguably the worst game a quarterback has ever played on Sunday with his 2/8 for 5 yards and 3 interceptions 1st quarter performance before being pulled for Michael Vick. His final QBR was a putrid 0.04. It doesn’t get much worse than that. Vick on the other hand showed he was still...

Were any New York Jets among the biggest heroes or goats from last week?

If any preseason game actually “matters,” it’s the ones that transpired this past weekend. They were the dress rehearsals for each team, when they let their starters play most of the first half and sometimes into the second. So it provided the best glimpse yet at who is, and who isn’t, ready to go in 2014. What players were at each extreme of the spectrum this week? To see...

When you’re evaluating an NFL quarterback one of the most underrated qualities is lateral quickness. It’s one thing to be able to sprint for major gains like Colin Kaepernick or Cam Newton, but just as important is the ability to move your feet and get out of tricky situations when the pocket collapses. If this past weekend’s preseason game against the Giants is anything to...
