    How 'bout them Jets: Darrelle Revis Trade Edition

    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 >>

    Jets Coaching Staff Chokes Again

    You Jets fans out there - how did you feel when, after dominating the 4th quarter and tying the Patriots 23-23 with two minutes left to play, the Jets recovered a fumble at the New England 18-yard line?

    Boston A "Football Town?" Not Even Close

    Whenever I read something about football that sounds like it was written in a barroom by someone as sloshed as Rance Preibus at the RNC, it invariable comes from ColdHardFootballFacts.com.

    Will The Giants Miss Mario Manningham?

    By the time you read this, you'll already know that the Giants let free agent Mario Manningham go to the San Francisco 49ers for a still undisclosed sum.  Amazingly, it's the second time in four years the Giants showed the door to a receiver who made an unbelievable catch in a Super Bowl against th ...

    A Backwards Look at the Giants' Super Bowl Finish

    A piece by Jim Trotter in this week's Super Bowl issue of Sports Illustrated puts the Ahmad Bradshaw ass-first game-winning touchdown run in new perspective.

    New York Giants Versus New England Patriots: A Tale of Two Passes

    Football, our coaches always told us, is a game of inches. Yesterday, that fact was demonstrated with startling clarity by two plays, both of which will be remembered and argued about for years. The first, of course, was the play that won the game, or at least was key in the game-winning drive. Fro ... More >>
