    Jets Lose, Suck, But Not Quite Badly Enough for Tebow Time

    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 >>

    Jets Need Sympathy; Giants Need To Wake Up

    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. Late in the 4th quarter, ... More >>

    Jets Get Grounded And Pounded

    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. Against Buffalo, New York mixed up their of ... More >>

    Jets Make Easy Work of Redskins?

    ​"Jets make easy work of Redskins" read the banner on the home page of NFL.com. Were they serious? Did anyone actually watch that game? Once again -- stop me if you've heard this already -- the Jets were trailing an inferior team in the fourth quarter -- in this instance, down 16-13 to Washin ... More >>

    Jets Beat the Steelers Twice In a Row? Why Not?

    ​Let's get one thing out of the way right off: I'm hearing a lot of people on blogs and talk shows saying things like "I don't know if it really means anything that the Jets beat the Steelers (22-17) five weeks ago. It's tough to beat a good team twice in one season." Well, sure, it's toug ... More >>

    Mark Sanchez Puts an Exclamation Point on the Jets Season

    ​As we suggested Wednesday, Mark Sanchez's NFL passer rating at the time, 80.5, good for only 24th best in the league, didn't begin to reflect how good he is. As Sanchez demonstrated in today's breathtaking 30-27 win over the Houston Texans, he should no longer by judged by his potential. He' ... More >>

    After a Hellish Halloween, Revisiting the Jets Nightmare

    ​"I don't ever want to play on Halloween again," the Jets Jerricho Cotchery said after their humiliating 9-0 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday afternoon. I don't blame him. The way Cotchery played, if someone had tossed him a Hershey bar he would have dropped it. Or perhaps a Butterfingers ... More >>

    Deadspin Photos of Brett Favre's Penis Are Going Live Tomorrow (UPDATE)

    ​This last August, there was much noise to be made over Gawker Media's sports site, Deadspin, and a scoop they ran under the headline 'Brett Favre Once Sent Me Cock Shots': Not A Love Story. The shots were never released, but it looks like that's about to change.

    Is Santonio Holmes Paying for Ben Roethlisberger's Sins?

    ​For a week now, the New York sports press has been displaying its bafflement over how the Jets could have snagged such a prize as wide receiver Santonio Holmes at such a bargain price (just a fifth round pick in this year's draft). The answer became clearer with this morning's announcement ... More >>

    Interview: Morning Joe's Willie Geist--"The Oracle of MSNBC"--Speaks Again

    "The NFL is this close to being the Taliban." A few weeks ago, Morning Joe co-host Willie Geist was kind enough to answer a few questions for us. Impressed by his sagacity--or at least his insights into Family Ties and José Canseco--we decided to ask him a few more. So below, more of Willie's vi ... More >>

    Jockbeat: This Seals It - Kurt Warner Is The Best QB Ever

    First, we're going to start our post-Super Bowl coverage by telling you what nobody else would:  the Arizona Cardinals didn't belong in the Super Bowl.  The Cardinals were not, as some pointed out, one of the weakest teams ever to make it to the Big Game, they were the weakest.
