    New York Daily News Reports Its Beef with Chris Christie is Officially Squashed

    Love is in the air. Chris Christie seems to have reconciled with the Daily News after a blow-up over their New York Jets coverage last week.

    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 and Giants: A Depressing Post-Mortem

    The Giants were the smaller disaster, so let's handle them first. They were next-to-the-last in the entire league on defense, meaning 31 out of 32 teams in yards/allowed. That's going to take so much shoring up before next season that it's hard to know where to begin. And yet, that may not be Big ... More >>

    Repent, New York, for Tebow Time is Nigh

    So yesterday, the New York Jets played the Arizona Cardinals in what will go down in the annals as maybe actually the single most unwatchable game in the history of sport.
