The New York Jets Will Now Organize Their Own J-E-T-S Chant

 

The Jet Press: Remember our buddy, Fireman Ed? Well it doesn’t look like he is planning on returning for the 2013 season. The Jets are actually planning a way to replace him. And it’s a little bit crazy. The Jets organization has taken it upon itself to take the famous “J-E-T-S” chant, and, instead of letting the fans do it naturally, converted it into an organized event. The letters will be done by designed sections.

How do you know football season is right around the corner? No, not because you might have a fantasy football draft coming up on your calendar–because the Jets are in the headlines for off the field reasons a month before their first game. Surprisingly, it has nothing to do with players (yet) and more about how management is organizing the new J-E-T-S chant. Last season Fireman Ed quit on his team because of the “verbal abuse” he was taking for wearing a Sanchez jersey and instead of putting on a throwback Namath, he decided to call it quits. That’s when one guy in the Jets weekly Monday morning meeting sarcastically said let’s divide the stadium into 4 sections and have the fans do the chant themselves. His boss shot a look over and said that’s the greatest idea I’ve ever heard! Let’s put that on a memo to all of our season ticket holders so they know by our first home game! As if Jets fans didn’t have enough to be embarrassed about, now they have to deal with this shit. It’s getting to the point where I almost feel bad…ALMOST.

Under/over of a J-E-T-S chant every home game counting the kickoff = 2.5

Here’s Lauren Silberman’s Tryout Video For The Jets

 

That’s it! Thanks for coming folks! I wasn’t wrong when I said maybe she would make a good onside/pooch kicker. And please save me the bullshit of well at least she tried and followed through with what she wanted to do. This is the NFL, not Make A Wish Foundation.

Side note: All I could think of was the scene from Heavyweights ‘Get on the scale, get off the scale!’

 

NY Jets Invite First Female To Scouting Combine Because They Are Attention Whores

DailyMail: A 28-year-old woman from New York is set to become the first female to be given a try out for the NFL. Lauren Silberman had never kicked anything more than a soccer ball in an organized game before she started practicing long-range field goals. Now she has been given a chance at an NFL regional scouting combine on Sunday at the New York Jets’ training facility in Florham Park, New Jersey. Speaking about her chances of getting the NFL call, Silberman said: ‘I am working hard to prepare but I am also realistic about my chances. ‘I hope my willingness to put myself out there inspires others to seize opportunities and challenges. The support from around the world has been so heartening.’ Her goal for the weekend is to kick perfect 60-yard field goals. However, the odds are against her – scouts are likely to want to see her connect on extra points and chip-shot field goals with some consistency before moving on to the heavy kicking.

Cue the circus music once again. Oh wait…it’s still on loop? I guess the Revis trade rumors are not enough press for these starved attention whores. Lauren Silberman has become the latest victim of the three ringed circus the Jets call an organization. She will never make the team. I’m not saying that because she’s a female, I’m saying that because she’s never kicked a football in her life and at age 28 she’s just gonna walk onto the field and make the Jets? Well…I guess I’ve heard crazier stories but this is far from ‘Invincible.’ She’s going up against guys who have done this for a living. But don’t get me wrong, I would actually love it if she made the team, took up a roster spot, and there was controversy all season about how to utilize her on Special Teams. Imagine Lauren coming out for an onside kick to win the game? Now that I would pay a PSL to see!

The NY Jets Meet With The ‘Honey Badger’ While Also Considering Trading Darrelle Revis

ESPN: Pessimistic about his chances of re-signing Darrelle Revis before he becomes a free agent next year, New York Jets owner Woody Johnson is open to trading the star cornerback, a person familiar with Johnson’s thinking said Wednesday night. Revis’ contract will void after the 2013 season, and there is a clause in the deal that prohibits the Jets from using the franchise tag. If they don’t sign Revis to an extension, the Jets could lose him as a free agent. The fact that Revis is just three months removed from major knee surgery complicates the matter. There also are salary-cap ramifications that could hinder a potential trade. Johnson has “no confidence” in the Jets’ ability to re-sign Revis, the person familiar with his thinking said. Despite the knee injury, he could seek more than $16 million per year, which could be prohibitive for the cap-strapped Jets. They’re already $19.4 million over the 2013 salary cap. Revis is due to make $6 million in 2013, including $3 million in base pay and the rest in various bonus money. The Jets could gauge interest around the league, hoping to receive fair-market value for Revis. But that will be difficult, considering the nature of his injury and his steep contract demands. CBSSports.com first reported that Johnson wants to explore a possible trade involving Revis.

 

Awww, look at that picture of the Honey Badger sitting with Manti Te’o’s girlfriend. I’d say this is right on par for the Jets. Another offseason with Darrelle Revis contract/trade talks and now the news that they are entertaining the thought of Tyrann Mathieu on their roster. Obviously it’s the media putting the Jets under a microscope but out of all the players out there, why the Honey Badger? Kid comes with more baggage than a stripper with a kid and a crack addiction. People like that don’t turn the corner plus is it me or does anyone else think this kid is highly overrated? No school wanted him in college so of course the Jets want him. Out with Tebow and in with the next PR disaster. Also, the Jets didn’t really have a problem with defense so I’d look for help on the other side of the ball. If anything they need a new QB with some weapons to throw to.

How have we not talked about the fact that Rex Ryan still has a job???

Tim Tebow’s TiVo Ads Are About As Comfortable As Watching A Rape Scene In A Movie

Adweek: It looks like New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow is finally getting a starring role. Unfortunately for him, it won’t be on the field against the Jaguars this Sunday. It’s in this new ad for TiVo. The company announced in two videos last month that Tebow would be its new brand ambassador—and not just because his name sounds almost identical to its own. “He is a highly Googled, highly buzzed-about, talked-about athlete as there is in the world,” CEO Tom Rogers told Bloomberg. “We’re going to make much better use of him than the Jets have this season.” Well, have they? The new spot opens with Tebow lounging in a spare living room with two children explaining that they just got a TiVo. “Mom did a TiVo search on you … Now, whenever you’re on a show, any show, it gets recorded,” says the sister. “And then, she watches you in sloooow-mo,” chimes in the shaggy headed little brother. “My dad is not your biggest fan right now,” says the girl. “I can’t see why,” Tebow replies with a smile. “TiVo makes TV about a thousand times better,” he says in the closing voiceover. If this whole football thing doesn’t work out, he won’t have acting to fall back on, either.

 

My name’s Tim Tebow and I don’t know what to do with my hands right now and for some reason I keep shrugging my shoulders to make my talking look more animated! Jesus Christ TT, I’d say don’t quit your day job but that doesn’t seem to be working out for ya either. Watching these TiVo ads is like walking in on your parents having sex. I’m just cringing at the awkwardness of him trying to read lines and answer questions not related to football or the bible. Tim just relax! This is about the most action you’re going to see all year minus the sweat you break praying before game time. Make the best of it because this is most likely your future talking to a camera and not playing football in front of it. Tebow, makes Tivo…about a thousand times more awkward.

Check Out Forbes List Of The 10 Most Overpaid NFL Players

No surprise three Jets players land on this list and I’m actually shocked Mark Sanchez isn’t on it. I get Cromartie has about 52 mouths to feed but dude, your production to salary ratio blows dick! Santonio hasn’t been relevant since the Jets playoff run a couple seasons ago and David Harris still plays? I thought he owned a used car dealership in Jersey.

EliteDaily:

The List:

1. David Harris

New York Jets

2012 Salary: $12 milllion

Good linebacker, but the second-highest paid defensive player in the league? Harris has been All-Pro once (second team in 2009) in five years.

 

2. Karlos Dansby

Miami Dolphins

2012 salary: $10.7 million

League’s second highest paid linebacker has been a steady performer for eight seasons but never an All Pro.

 

3. Johnathan Joseph

Houston Texans

2012 salary: $9.75 million

Terrific last season, but the corner drafted in the first round in 2006 has started a full 16-game season once (2009) and been named All-Pro once (2011).

 

4. Marcedes Lewis

Jacksonville Jaguars

2012 Salary: $9.6 million

Receiver’s big 2010 season (58 catches, 700 yards, 10 TDs) was his only standout performance in a six-year career.

 

5. Santonio Holmes

New York Jets

2012 salary: $9.25 million

League’s sixth-highest paid receiver has broken 1,000 yards just once, with Pittsburgh in 2009. Steelers let Holmes and his questionable attitude go for a fifth round draft pick to the Jets, who promptly gave him a five-year, $45 million.

 

6. DeAngelo Williams

Carolina Panthers

2012 salary: $8.7 million

Running back was very good in 2008 and 2009, otherwise limited contributions through six seasons.

 

7. Antonio Cromartie

New York Jets

2012 salary: $8.25 million

Corner sees a lot of action as opponents prefer to pick on him instead of Darrelle Revis on the other side.

Cromartie’s high-risk, high-reward style leads to big plays but also a lot of burn marks.

 

8. Sidney Rice

Seattle Seahawks

2012 salary: $8.2 million

Wide receiver has had trouble staying on the field throughout a five-year career, doing little beyond his 1,312-yard All Pro season of 2009.

 

9. Vernon Davis

San Francisco 49ers

2012 salary: $8 million

Tight end had 78 receptions and 13 TDs in his 2009 Pro Bowl season. Didn’t approach those numbers in any of his other five seasons.

 

10. Darren McFadden

Oakland Raiders

2012 salary: $7.8 million

Running back has played just 46 of a possible 65 games since the Raiders took him No. 4 overall in the 2008 draft. McFadden rushed for 1,157 yards in 2010; no more than 614 in any other season.

Watch Kate Upton Lie Like A Politician About Mark Sanchez

 

Get used to it Kate, you’re in the spotlight now. You’re gonna get grilled like this all the time about every move you make. But nice recovery with the whole sister thing. If you want it to go away, just tell everyone you got rung out like a dish towel by Mark Sanchez and all will be forgotten.

But honestly, how is this chick only 19? Someone please test her for PEDs.
