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.
The New York Times went deep on Ikemefuna “IK” Enemkpali. I learned that IK’s sister plays in the WNBA and his hometown spells fast “pfast.” [NYT]
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.
The reasoning for now-released Jets linebacker Ikemefuna Enemkpali breaking quarterback Geno Smith’s jaw hasn’t surfaced yet, so until then, let’s make some guesses. To start you off, here are some staff theories for why Smith got punched:
The Jets’ 2015 season has officially begun:
New York Jets defensive end Sheldon Richardson is facing charges of resisting arrest along with “numerous traffic violations” after refusing to pull over for a traffic stop near St. Louis earlier this month, a local prosecutor announced today. But what really stands out are the speeds that police said Richardson…
Since the NFL draft’s not in New York City this year, Jets fans will have to travel to do their traditional booing of the first-round pick. (Is it tradition, or has every first-round pick just been that terrible?) Local news station WGN-TV pretended to be Jets fans, and heckled everyone in Chicago, including but not…
The New York Jets need a new coach and a new general manager, and they've been asking a lot of people around the league if they might be interested in interviewing for the latter job. A good chunk of the people they've reached out to have answered that request with a hard pass.
Here's the Dolphins' Lamar Miller going 97 yards on a rush against the New York Jets, who provided us this wonderful gift as a testament to their efforts this season at being incompetent in every way.
How positive is Rex Ryan that he is going to be fired after six season as the New York Jets head coach? According to a report from Dom Cosentino, Ryan has already cleared out his office in advance of Sunday's game at Miami. Jets owner Woody Johnson has reportedly hired former Texans GM Charley Casserly to serve as a…
Woody Johnson—the man who once butt-dialed his ex-girlfriend while his current girlfriend was giving birth—is still having issue with technology. Or so he'd like you to believe.
