I haven’t written about the Jets yet this year because there hasn’t been very much to write about. Once again they snatched defeat out of the jaws of victory today in losing to the Cincinnati Bengals 38-31 to drop to 1-6 on the season. This time Chad Pennington is not the only one to blame. […]

The Jets also swapped second round picks with the Bears so they essentially got an All Pro running back in exchange for the opportunity to draft higher in the second round of the draft. What […]

It looks like all those quotes of Herman Edwards saying he wasn’t leaving the Jets was a pack of lies. The Jets are holding a press conference at 11 am today in which it is expected that GM Terry Bradway will announce that Edwards will be coaching the Kansas City Chiefs next season. I can’t […]
So the Jets season ended with a win on Sunday giving them a 4-12 record on the season and pushing their draft pick a couple of slots lower down in the order. Here’s a quick look at issues that will need attention in the next few weeks (pre-draft) before what promises to be a very […]
The AP is reporting today that former Jets defensive coordinator Bud Carson has died. Carson, who was with the Jets in the 80’s is better known as being the architect of Pittsburgh’s Steel Curtain defense in the 70’s. Rest in peace.
