By signing Josh McCown, the Jets have extended one of the NFL’s most enduring storylines: The Veteran Quarterback As Valuable Mentor. The team’s fans are no doubt delighted.
If you’re keeping score at home, the New York Jets have now rid themselves of their 2016 starters at the following positions: QB, LT, C, RT, CB1, K, WR1. And they might not be done yet.
The New York Jets negotiated all offseason with a quarterback who ended up with a total of 12 passing touchdowns and 23 turnovers; tried out two other quarterbacks who were both injured; and never touched the second-round QB they inexplicably drafted. The team finished this season at the bottom of their division with…
Jets defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson made an appearance on teammate Rontez Miles’s Snapchat account, filming a short clip before the Jets’ 34-13 loss to the Dolphins Saturday. He seemed unhappy to be playing.
After Monday’s blowout loss to the Colts, Jets head coach Todd Bowles told the media that Bryce Petty, who had come on in the third quarter for Ryan Fitzpatrick, would be the team’s starting quarterback for the rest of the season. Bowles said that he made the decision even before the game: “We could’ve won 45-0, and…
It was right about when Lachlan Edwards shanked a punt that traveled 36 yards before bouncing out of bounds that Jon Gruden, perpetually optimistic Monday Night Football analyst, had finally seen enough.
We already savaged the Rams for their role in the NFL’s least enjoyable game since this Week 1 debacle, but no one deserves to come out of that with dignity intact. The Jets, led by Bryce Petty in his first NFL start, were just as complicit, punting eight times and gaining just 17 first downs. You don’t want to watch…
Yesterday against the Dolphins, Jets coach Todd Bowles benched two of his best players, Mo Wilkerson and Sheldon Richardson, for the first quarter. Bowles declined to reveal to the press why he sat two of the team’s only indispensable players during a quarter in which the Dolphins put up two touchdowns, but one report…
Six games in, let’s check in on the 2016 New York Jets:
After Eli Manning threw the Giants’ game away, it wasn’t going to be easy for the Jets to wrest away the New York tabloids’ back pages. Well, not only does Ryan Fitzpatrick appear on both this morning, but his achievement was so singular, they were forced to go with the exact same headline: “Pick Six.”
The son of Jets tight ends coach Jimmie Johnson learned a valuable lesson about Twitter yesterday. The lesson, as always, is to never tweet.
That’s hyperbole, of course. Mark Sanchez was right there on the Eagles sideline for this one, and he could tell you about a worse play that took place in this same stadium. But Marshall’s lateral attempt that donked directly off an opponent’s facemask was momentous in the same tragicomic way.
5. Man, I hope Clint Bowyer wins in New Hampshire today.
Linebacker Ikemefuna Enemkpali found himself out of a job Tuesday after he broke New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith’s jaw over, reportedly, a $600 plane ticket. The third-string linebacker came out of the exchange okay, though, quickly getting picked up by the Buffalo Bills. Meanwhile, Smith is in a bad spot: Not…
The moment word got out that Geno Smith had his jaw broken in two places by a teammate, you KNEW there would be takes. You KNEW that a one-sided fight would become twisted into a referendum on Smith’s leadership. And so it has come to pass. God bless you, Jason Whitlock. God bless you, Rich Cimini. God bless you,…
We’ve spent most of the day wondering what exactly led Jets backup linebacker I.K. Enemkpali to sock quarterback Geno Smith in the face, and now it looks like we have our answer.
Some wild shit went down in the Jets’ locker room today, and SportsCenter threw up the Yelling Sports Guys In Suits signal as soon as the news broke. It’s all hands on deck, people! Cris Carter, what’s your fuckin’ take on this, my man?!
Lousy New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith will miss 6 to 10 weeks with a broken jaw after an irate benchwarmer unleashed the fists of fury on him this morning. Reports say Smith put his finger in linebacker IK Enemkpali’s face during an argument, and caught a hook for it.
