Post Game Drill

In the aftermath of a disappointing 23-17 loss to the Houston Texans, a game the Jets showed infinitely more heart than they did a week earlier, I want to attempt to point out some positives we as fans can draw.  The Jets sit at 2-3 but are certainly in no way playing for draft position [...]

The Day After Drill

In preparation for my weekly JetNation.com submission I usually stay up late, watch the game one more time, look at the statistics, and try to come up with analysis that focuses on the play, player or decisions that shaped the outcome.  Forgive me if I did not have the stomach to put myself through that [...]

Confessions Of A Tebow Hater

I am by nature an extremely passionate sports fan.  The kind of fan who often can’t distinguish the difference between an NFL football game and one of my kid’s high school sporting events, because I see it all as competition.  Typically, I will hate my rival teams and their stars with as much vigor as [...]
