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. 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.


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.

NY Jets Should Have An Interesting Offseason


FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — A day after watching his dysfunctional team implode, and after meeting individually with several players Monday, Rex Ryan offered a stunning mea culpa for someone who prides himself on being a player’s coach. “Normally, I’m a guy that really has the pulse of this team, and I don’t think I had the pulse of the team the way I’ve done in the past,” Ryan said at a news conference. “When I met with players, I think that became clear to me.”  Only a few hours earlier, the New York Jets’ coach became so emotional in a team meeting that he cried while addressing the importance of unity, according to players. It was a surreal day for the Jets, who cleaned out their lockers and admitted, almost to a man, their Super Bowl aspirations were undermined by poor team chemistry. The lowpoint occurred Sunday in Miami, where Santonio Holmes was benched for the final two minutes after jawing with teammates who felt he had quit. Several players, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said Holmes poisoned the locker room throughout the season. Ryan backed offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer’s decision to bench Holmes, but he acknowledged there was ongoing turmoil and he vowed to restore harmony to the locker room. Ryan admitted he made a “huge mistake” by naming six captains before the season — Holmes was one of them — because he believes it detracted from the team concept. He said there will be no captains in the future. “It’s not a reflection of anybody in particular, but we’re not going to have those anymore,” said Ryan, who was criticized for the decision to give a ‘C’ to Holmes. Ryan said he expects Holmes to return in 2012. He signed a five-year, $45 million contract before the season. The Jets (8-8) fell well short of their expectations, missing the playoffs for the first time in three years. There was a lack of harmony on offense, and it came to surface in October when Holmes called out the offensive line, sparking a war of words with guard Brandon Moore. Just last week, Holmes clashed with quarterback Mark Sanchez in a meeting room, team sources told It got really ugly in Miami, when Holmes had to be restrained from going after tackle Wayne Hunter in the huddle. “For whatever reason, I don’t think we were as close as a football team as we were the first two years, and now we’re sitting on the outside looking in,” said Ryan, who is 28-20 in three seasons. “We’re watching the other teams in playoff games, and we think we should be in. I think that’s painful. Beyond belief, that’s painful.” That pain poured out of Ryan in the team meeting. He didn’t mention Holmes by name, according to players, but he made it clear he was talking about the mercurial wide receiver when he discussed the importance of leadership and supporting teammates and playing through injuries. “He started off calm … and he got really emotional, and kind of put his heart out there, pleading with us, saying, ‘We have to do a better job, we have to be a team if we’re going to win,'” guard Matt Slauson said. “Yeah, he was crying, because he loves us,” Slauson added. “He knows what we’re capable of, and we didn’t even come close to our goals and that was sad because we have the players in this room to be an amazing team. We weren’t even close. He was really disappointed with that.” Ryan confirmed that he choked up in the meeting. “I’m Irish, so what do you want?” he said. “It’s hurtful, and I’m extremely prideful. I want to be the best. I want to win. Sometimes it comes out like that.” But it wasn’t just a Kleenex moment; Ryan also lashed into the team. “It was a little bit harsher than most end-of-the-year meetings,” Moore said. “Everything was spot on. Everybody is frustrated and disappointed.” Ryan wouldn’’t say which players he met with, and he wouldn’’t say if he met with Holmes. General manager Mike Tannenbaum, who appeared with Ryan at the news conference — a likely show of unity — said he met with more than a dozen players Monday in attempt to uncover answers. “Clearly, there are a lot of things we all could’ve done better,” said Tannenbaum, also refusing to say if he met with Holmes. Holmes refused to speak with reporters. He walked to his locker, grabbed a cardboard box and exited quickly, escorted by a PR official while at least 30 reporters followed in their wake. One player watched the scene unfold, shook his head and said, “What a joke.” Several players dodged reporters. Some appeared shaken as they entered the locker room. Darrelle Revis, one of the most media-friendly players on team, bolted immediately. Bart Scott gave an obscene gesture to a photographer and snapped, “Get that f——- thing out of my face.” The players that stuck around spoke openly about the internal strife that fractured the locker room. “We talked all year how talented we were,” Jim Leonhard said. “It’s not talent. It’s obviously all the intangibles and things like that. I’m not going to point out one guy; it was a lot of different issues. Obviously, things need to change — and will.” The Jets mortgaged character for talent, jettisoning well-respected veterans such as Jerricho Cotchery and Damien Woody and bringing in Derrick Mason (since traded) and Plaxico Burress to join Holmes in the receiving corps. Burress didn’t cause any friction, according to team sources, but they suspect it was because he was on a one-year contract. “There are a lot of reasons why we didn’t have the season we wanted, and chemistry can go on the list for however many numbers go down the page,” Moore said. Now the healing process begins. “We’ve got to find a way — and I will find a way — of pulling this team together,” Ryan said. “That’s something I always think is a strength of mine.” Not this season.

What do Rex Ryan, Wade Phillips, and Terry Francona all have in common? They all were recent coaches who were loved by their players and had very talented teams. They also had zero control over their teams and let their players do and say whatever they want. Being a “players coach” is a trend in sports that is an immediate red flag if you ask me. There is a certain line players cannot cross and they have to know where it starts.

In any market, but especially New York, fans have a very short fuse and tolerance for losing games. Example: Tom Coughlin has been playing every game for the last couple of years as if his career depends on it and guess what? Unfortunately it does. But Coughlin is respected by his players and widely known for running a tight ship, just how an NFL coach should be. So when is everyone going to stop drinking the Rex Ryan Kool-Aid and demand change? Not only has he lost control of his team but now he’s crying in front of them? In this case, there’s a fine line between passion and pathetic and whatever respect his players still had, is definitely gone now.

Everyone knows there’s no crying in football.

Rex Ryan Tells Pats Fan To ‘Shut The F*** Up’

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP)—The NFL is looking into an Internet video that appears to show New York Jets coach Rex Ryan using an obscenity while angrily responding to a fan after the team’s 37-16 loss to the New England Patriots. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello says Monday that the league is aware of the 48-second video, which shows the Jets walking off the field Sunday night. When Ryan appears, someone is heard yelling, “Hey, Rex, Belichick is better than you,” referring to Patriots coach Bill Belichick. Ryan looks up and tells the fan to “shut up” while also using an obscenity. Ryan was fined $50,000 by the Jets in 2010 after he was caught on a cellphone camera giving the middle finger to a fan during a mixed martial arts event in Florida.


Welp, Rex will be digging deep into his pockets for this one. I understand emotions were running high after that nail biter in New England but in today’s world you HAVE to know that there is a 99% chance of someone recording you when walking off the field. Rex, you gave them exactly what they wanted which was a frustrated and emotional reaction that they can now post all over the internet and…here we are. To be honest I would be just as mad though. You play the worst defense in the league and get Sandusky’d by them (too soon?). Back to the drawing board and like I’ve said since last year, you’re not winning a Super Bowl with Sanchez taking snaps. Is it too late to make a run for Andrew Luck? Keep it classy Jets fans.

Giants/Jets Outlook: Week 10


Ohhhhhhh boy! Giants on the west coast and 3.5 point underdogs!!! Love it. Nicks might be back, Bradshaw is out and Eli is still blowing the smoke off his trigger finger. Giants walk into San Fran like the bosses they were last week in New England and look to improve on their lead in the the NFC East. Philly sucks, Dallas is killing themselves, and who is that other team…? Oh yea, Washington who is irrelevant. As long as the Giants are underdogs I feel comfortable with a 3.5 point spread. It’s when they are favored that I get nervous. Giants +3.5 in the over at 42.5


241 New York Giants +3½  -110 +160
42½ O -110
U -110
20 O -110

242 San Francisco 49ers -3½  -110 -190

Week 10
Let’s get real, this won’t be even close to as exciting as Giants/Patriots but it’s still a division rivalry so it’s a big game. This is also to decide first place in the AFC East since Buffalo is proving they are the same team they’ve always been in the past years and Miami is dropping games for a draft pick. Rex Ryan has already come out and asked the fans for help and that could actually be a huge factor in this Sunday night nationally televised showdown. Tom Brady is trying to stop a 2 game losing streak for the Pats and keep his team in the lead of the AFC East. The Patriots haven’t lost 3 straight games since 2002 and I have a feeling the losing streak will continue due to a Patriots defense that is in complete disarray. The Jets could be their own worst enemy if they walk into this game thinking it’s going to be easy. This game is the Patriots offense against the Jets defense and after last week, I think we saw that Brady is losing his touch. Unless he can use his tight ends every other down, I don’t see the Pats being able to pull this one off. The other big question is whether or not the Jets offense can mount points on this sorrowful defense. We’ll see Sunday night but I’m running with the Jets-2 and the over at 47.5
243 New England Patriots +2  -110 +110
47½ O -110
