Geno Smith…IN THE FACE!!!

Remember last year when I said “I love the Jets because they find new and exciting ways to lose”? Well, this time they found a way to win.

Starting Quarterback and albatross Geno Smith got into a fight with a backup linebacker, who cold cocked him and broke his jaw in two places. Geno’s out for 6-10 weeks. Ryan Fitzpatrick is now the starter.

This is awful for Geno, but probably the best thing for the Jets.

Geno has tried and failed. He isn’t going to get any better. Neither is Fitz, but at least he’s at a level where he can manage the game. Fitz is solid, and that’s all that the Jets need. Manage the game and don’t make mistakes. Geno does neither.

I had a feeling that Fitz was gonna take the starting slot anyway, but this guarantees it.

Only the Jets, man…only the Jets.


What It’s Like to be a Jets Fan

I went to the Jets-Dolphins game Monday night, where we lost with a minute remaining in the game.

The blurry guy is me. I’m pretty damn die hard.

Aside from the usual cast I go with (this time only my friend Sean) we brought a newcomer, who had never been to a game before. The loss was the perfect introduction into what it’s like to be a Jets fan. They make you dream, and then they crush those dreams in a barrage of blocked punts and butt fumbles.

I’ve said it before, but it deserves repeating: The Jets never disappoint because they find NEW AND INTERESTING WAYS TO LOSE!!

What it’s like to be a Jets Fan: Week by Week

Pre-season: “All right! This is our year. Our defense is strong, and Geno’s gonna develop into the QB we know he can be. J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS!

Week 1: Did you see that? We destroyed the Raiders. They didn’t stand a chance. That touchdown at the end meant nothing. J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS!

Week 2: What the hell? We totally got screwed out of that win! That was ours! It’s ok though, it’s only one loss. J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS!

Week 3: Ok, that was pretty embarrassing, but if we didn’t spot the Bears those 14 points, we would’ve won. Once we stop making stupid mistakes, we’ll start winning. J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS!

Week 4: We want Vick!



Week 10: See? We should’ve put in Vick earlier. Vick’s gonna lead us to the Super Bowl next year! J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS!

Week 11: bye

Week 12: *weeps into slice of pizza*

Week 13: You know what? That’s ok. The Dolphins helped us. We’re gonna get a great draft pick next year, and that’ll be our year! J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS!

Believing in the Jets is like Charlie Brown believing that Lucy is gonna let him kick that football. It’s never gonna happen, but that doesn’t stop you from trying.

I freakin’ love the Jets.

Only The Jets

I’d like to thank the New York Jets for showing me new and exciting ways to lose a game. Thus is the life we lead as Jets fans.

So true.

I’ve seen some awful plays: The fake spike, the butt fumble, the 80s, but I’ve never seen a touchdown called back for a time out that wasn’t taken.

I’m not saying that this one play cost the Jets the game. They couldn’t run on the Pack, they couldn’t get a pass rush in the second half, their best receiver pulled a hammy, and one of their best defensive players got ejected. It’s the uniqueness of the play that catches my attention.

The rule is that only the head coach can call a time out from the sidelines. Marty Mornhinweg, the offensive coordinator, called to Rex Ryan, the head coach, to call a time out. The refs interpreted this as a TO, even though Rex never called it.

A fan and team expects a certain number of bad calls in a game. The goal is to overcome them, and that’s what the Jets failed to do. But come on man!

I swear, the Jets are the Cubs of football.

These memes make me sad

I Love (Hate) Sports

Soooo, the Jets are looking to trade Revis.  A-Rod, Granderson and Texiera are out for the Yanks.  It looks like another frustrating year for Craiggers and his teams.

I’m ok with the Jets dealing Revis, but if they don’t get at least a 1st and 3rd round pick for him, they are getting ripped off.  He is the best cornerback in a pass-heavy NFL, he’s like a freakin unicorn!  Cromartie is a downgrade from Revis, but he is still enough of a shutdown corner that it won’t affect the Jets too much.

What the Jets need is (if they are serious about a “ground and pound” attack) a franchise running back.  Shonn Greene is a good back, but not good enough to star in a run-heavy offense.  They need someone with comparable size (230 pounds) but with more explosive speed.  Sanchez is most effective (some might say “only effective”) off of the run-action pass.  No running game, and Sanchez will be fumbling into asses all season long.

Can I asssss you a question?

The Jets could also use a good WR and a solid RG and RT.  The lack of athletic talent on the offense right now is just sad.  A pass rushing OLB would be nice too, to take some of the pressure off of losing Revis.

As for the Yanks, you can only play with an old team for so long before it bites you in the ass.  Let’s hope that this next gen of players has a Jeter hiding amongst the Kevin Maas’es

It stopped snowing, so it’s time for me to clean off my car.  Snoochie Boochies, my friends.
