    Does Sanchez Deserve the Blame?

    posted by: Murrell2878 | 4 comments | Editorial

    There’s a lot of blame to go around for the offense’s woes this season. Mark Sanchez is usually more than willing to accept responsibility and the blame for these issues. But how much of the blame should be placed on Mark?

    Same Old Jets Make Their Return

    posted by: Site Admin | 6 comments | Jets Regular Season

    This wasn't just another must win game with a playoff berth on the line, but another must win game against the cross-town rivals, the New York Giants, whose season also depended on the outcome of this contest. All the hype, pressure, trashtalking, big expectations in what was probably the biggest,  most anticipated game of the season - they lost it, just like many Jets teams before them. These were the Same Old Jets all over again. The Same Old Jets that comfortably led two AFC Championship Games, among many other must-wins, only to find another way to lose.

    I: Being a Ghost Story of the New York Jets
    The Eagles game was dead, to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that. The burial had taken place and the crushing defeat in Philadelphia was as dead as a door-nail.

    A Look Back At Other Jets Week 15 Collapses

    Some people wonder where the SOJ (Same ol’ Jets) mantra comes from. Well, unfortunately you don’t have to look much further than last week’s abysmal performance. This was their latest display of putrid football when they needed to play their best. We have seen the Jets bounce back from this mess before. We’ve also seen them completely fall apart. What the end of the 2011 season will look like is anyone’s guess. Here’s a look at some other recent Week 15 collapses.

    Jets Fall Out Of Top 10 In Power Rankings

    The New York Jets fell out of the top 10 in all three major power rankings following their abysmal display against the Eagles. But they are still in the top 12, which obviously means that all three top websites still consider the Jets being a potential playoff team. ESPN dropped the Gang Green from #10 to #12. FOX Sports, who had them at #9 a week ago, lowered them to #12 as well. Finally, CBS Sports put the Jets only one spot down - from #10 to #11.

    Jets Get Embarrassed In Philly

    posted by: Site Admin | 0 comments | Jets Regular Season

    In what was another game of high hopes and expectations, another must win, the New York Jets laid yet another egg, getting thoroughly embarrassed by the Philadelphia Eagles, 45-19. Just like in Week 3, or just like in Week 9, when the Gang Green had to win to make a statement and take over the first place in the division, they just came out flat and got totally outclassed. This time the division lead wasn't on the line, as the Jets had lost any realistic hope for the division title a while ago, but the Gang Green could have solidified their Wild Card claims with a win in Philly, but it just wasn't to be.

    Rough Final Stretch Awaits The Jets

    posted by: Barry the Baptist | 1 comments | Jets Regular Season

    Most Jet fans would love to be in the situation that the Patriots are in come Sunday. Of course that is the very achievable scenario of winning just one of the next three games to claim a division title and more importantly the potential for a bye week and even more important at least one game in front of your fans in the playoffs. Only somebody who owns stock in a defibrillator company would feel comfortable with the situation the Jets are facing. It certainly is a daunting task that remains ahead of the Jets but they know they control their own destiny which may or may not be a good thing.

    A Look at the Eagles Offense

    This week the Jets are traveling to the City of Brotherly Love to play the 5-8 Philadelphia Eagles with a clear objective - win and stay in front of the race for the final Wild Card spot. To achieve this objective the Jets must try and stop one of the league’s most potent offenses. The Eagles have dealt with injuries to their star quarterback, injuries to their receiving core and a bout with diva wide receiver. At times they have shown their potential to be an explosive offense gaining over 400 yards in 7 games this season. But frequently they have shown to be ineffective and mistake prone – ranking 30th in turnover ratio and last in the NFL in INTs thrown.

Leonhard was carted to the locker room in the second quarter of yesterday's 37-10 win against the Kansas City Chiefs. Last year Leonhard was also lost for the season after fracturing his right tibia in practice. S Brodney Pool will take Leonhard's place in the starting lineup.

    QB Mark Sanchez threw a couple of touchdown passes and ran for another two, as the New York Jets easily cruised past the Kansas City Chiefs, 37-10. It was the Gang Green's third win in a row but it might have come with a rather high price tag. S Jim Leonhard reportedly has a torn ligament in his right knee and will miss the remainder of the season. On the positive side, besides the win, the Jets now control their own playoff destiny, as Cincinnati, Oakland and Tennessee all lost today.

    I can't contain my disappointment any longer over the fans that are on Rex's case. It is becoming redundant reading news articles, comments from readers, former players, media-types, et al, beating up Rex for, well – everything! Talking too much; over-rating his team; putting the "bull's eye" on the teams back; foot-gate; finger-gate; cussing and swearing. The list goes on and on, all accumulated over a short near-3 year period. The media pundits and fans of THIS team, let alone other teams, continue to pile on.

    RB Shonn Greene's three touchdown runs and QB Mark Sanchez's 4th quarter touchdown pass to WR Santonio Holmes propelled the Jets past the Washington Redskins and one step closer to making the playoffs. It wasn't pretty though as the game was rather even throughout the first three quarters. The Jets took the lead in the final quarter on a 30-yard TD pass from Sanchez to Holmes. Then, three plays later, LB Aaron Maybin sacked the quarterback forcing a fumble that was recovered on Washington's 9-yard line. Two plays later Greene scored his second touchdown of the game, sealing the deal.
