With the Knicks and Nets winning their first playoff games and the Yankees and Mets both over .500, it would seem that New York is on the verge of a happiness explosion. But I'm bummed out. The best football player in New York, maybe the best defensive player in the league and perhaps the best secon ... More >>
Ah, the subject of Darrelle Revis again. I hate to keep coming back to this, but at the time of year when we ought to be talking about the Yankees and the Mets, the subject of what the Jets should do about Revis continues to grab headlines. Here's Mike Lupica in today's Daily News:
"The Jets shoul ... More >>
As of this morning, Jets owner Woody Johnson, new GM John Idzik, and coach Rex Ryan are in Indianapolis evaluating draft prospects. Also in Indiana was agent Neil Schwartz, who represents several players, most notably the Jets' All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis.

Just three weeks after closing out maybe the most highly-publicized 6-10 season ever, the New York Jets got right back to doing what they do best: creating headlines without winning football games.
This time, the Jets stirred up a media ruckus when rumors started swirling that their best player, co ... More >>
Here's the situation: The Jets have two running backs in Shonn Greene and Joe McKnight, both of whom are better at returning kicks than running the ball, even though Shonn Greene doesn't return kicks. Santonio Holmes and Stephen Hill are injured, so the Jets are down to two wide receivers, Jeremy Ke ... More >>
Watching the Giants 19-17 loss to the Eagles in Philadelphia last night, two things stood out for me. The first was how extraordinary the Giants have been in two championship postseasons. The second is how utterly ordinary they have been otherwise in the Tom Coughlin era.

If you love ESPN's Stephen A. (Smith) and SNL's Jay Pharoah as much as I do, you got a big charge out of the sketch on Saturday night's Weekend Update segment. I don't know who wrote the bit - I'm guessing Pharoah because he delivers it so perfectly, but it sounds like a compendium of all Stephen's ... More >>
Is it possible that Rex Ryan could have looked at the Jets' 48-28 victory over the Buffalo Bills last week and not understood why the Jets won? It certainly seems that way after watching their season-deflating 27-10 loss to the Steelers Sunday afternoon.

"This series is not over," said Amar'e Stoudemire after Saturday's 100-67 slaughter of the Knicks at the hands of the Miami Heat. "We've got to learn from our mistakes today and get ready for the next one."
Coincidentally, this is exactly how General; Custer's last dispatch from the Little Big Horn ... More >>
Is Tony Romo the dumbest mo-fo in the National Football League?
"It was a dumb decision," he said of the throw that lost the game to the Jets last night. "I should have made sure, and that was my fault. We win that football game if I don't do what I did ..."
Well, Tony, that's not exactly corre ... More >>
Yes, it's been an amazing run, and, yes, the Jets are definitely the team of the future in the AFC. And blah blah blah. We all know this. But all you really want to know is whether the Jets will beat the Colts this Sunday, right?
First, let me point out what no one else I've seen has, namel ... More >>
At this very moment, Jets fans are rallying with Mayor Bloomberg to jack themselves up for Sunday's AFC Championship game. The team is certainly jacked up, and its website is already selling championship gear. ("After seeing this," tweets agentdp009, "if the Colts don't win, then they need a new ... More >>
"They played well," Cincinnati receiver (and ace David Letterman guest) Chad Ochocinco told the Washington Post after the Jets 38-0 season-ending win over his team on Sunday, January 3.
