Jets Squish Fish, 23-20 in OT

As ugly as the game against Pittsburgh was last week, this one against the Dolphins was worse. The only redeeming quality was that the Jets walked away with the win in overtime, 23-20. The offense was completely inept through most of the game.  The receivers and tight ends had drops and miscues. The running game [...]

Steelers Ground Jets, 27-10

The Jets started the day with a touchdown but never found the end zone again, losing 27-10 to the Pittsburgh Steelers today. If the Jets miss the playoffs by a game, they can point to this one and say, “If we’d played a good game, we’d have won.” The Steelers were injured. Troy Polamalu and [...]

NY Jets Bounce Bills, 48-28

Mark Sanchez wasn’t kidding when he said the New York Jets were saving their best stuff for the regular season. Sanchez and the Jets knocked out the Buffalo Bills, hard, 48-28 in Week 1. This must have been sweet for the Jets who, since the preseason ended, have been listening to the media declare their [...]

Jets Score TD; Lose To Eagles

The New York Jets ended the preseason with another loss, this time to the Philadelphia Eagles last night.  The Jets ended the preseason 0 and 4, but this time they did score a TD.  Greg McErloy connected with rookie Terrance Ganaway on a 8 yard pass to put the Jets in the end zone for [...]

Postgame Recap: Jets Lose To Panthers, 17-12

The Jets lost to the Carolina Panthers tonight 17-12, and they still haven’t scored any touchdowns, but there are positives to take away from this game. This is the kind of game most fans expected last week, where the team looked better than in its first preseason game. Instead, there was almost nothing positive to [...]

Jets Fall To Giants

New York Giants 26 - New York Jets 3 The “MetLife Bowl” was ugly for the Jets. Forget that they lost to the Giants (and the Giants get to keep the really cute Snoopy statue for the next year). It’s preseason, who cares who they lose to? The bigger issue is that the Jets have [...]

Post-game Recap: Bengals 17, Jets 6

Anyone paying attention going into this first preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals knew the main storyline was the quarterback “controversy.” Neither quarterback made a particularly strong case for themselves, numbers wise, in their limited playing time. Mark Sanchez started the game and played one quarter. He was 4-6 for 21 yards with no turnovers, [...]

Jets Fall To Dolphins

After a disappointing December, that included back-to-back losses against the Eagles and the Giants, the playoffs were a long shot for the Jets.  They took the field against the Dolphins and made it clear that they didn't need help from other teams.  The Jets decided their own playoff fate with a 19 - 17 loss [...]
