Happy Thanksgiving – Yes Honey – Now we can keep the Jets game on during holiday dinner

Posted by TopOfTheThread on November 25, 2010

Note to the Mrs. : Now you have someone to root for on the NY Jets.  The Jets quarterback, Mark Sanchez,  in addition to being a clutch performer on the field, loves the culture of New York.  When he is off the field he loves attending Broadway plays.   He even keeps the soundtracks to Broadway plays in his car!  (Just like you.)   He even likes the same plays as you!

Note to self: If going on a long car trip with Mark Sanchez, make sure to empty his CDs out of the car before starting the trip.

Brett Favre sexting Jenn Sterger scandal Jets NFL

There are many articles around about Brett Favre texting some hotties when he was a NY Jet.  The timing is interesting. Hmmm… The week the Vikings play the Jets.  Was this released this week as a part of the Jets “Psychological Game Plan”?

Super Bowl: Who dat? And Arrogant NY Giants Fans

Posted by TopOfTheThread on February 7, 2010

As a  NY Jets fan we have had our ups and downs — mostly downs! We are used to the Giants being the “Pride of NY Football”.

This year we (the Jets) had a run and made it to the AFC Championship game.  Believe it or not, we were one game away from playing in The Super Bowl.  It was fun while it lasted.  We had no illusions of grandeur. We knew the Colts were theWho dat arrogant giants fans better team.

Once the  Jets were out of it, I really did not care who won The Super Bowl.  I just hoped for a good game that was worth watching. Colts win? So?  Saints win? So?

The concept of rooting for teams in “Sports” is interesting. Why do we root for one team or another, when it’s not “our” team?

I have nothing at stake in this game. No bets. No boxes. No ties to either team.

…. I think back to the week before the AFC Championship.  A Giants-fan, season ticket holder, buddy of mine says “it doesn’t matter who wins the AFC Championship, there are no good teams in the AFC anyway.  The team coming out of the NFC will destroy the AFC team in The Super Bowl….”

Wow. What a case of sour grapes!  Poor baby. The Giants didn’t make the playoffs so put down the AFC and the Jets. Poor baby.

* News Flash *  NY Giants Fans — The NY Jets are the best football team in New York. And they’re an AFC team!

Now I know who to root for!  I am passionately rooting for the AFC and the Indianapolis Colts!

Go Colts!

Jets Beat Bengals

NY Jets Beat Bengals

The Jets will beat the Bengals tonight

Being a long-time Jets fan is painful. They break out hearts almost every year.  Now they’re about to back their way into the playoffs. Indianapolis gave them a gift.

Now we’re only a few hours away from… who the heck knows! Will the Bengals play their regulars?  Will Sanchez throw 4 interceptions?

Let us Jet fans simply enjoy the next few hours before the game starts.   We’ll take a win any way we can get it.

NY Jets vs Tennessee Titans – another broken heart – not

Posted by TopOfTheThread on November 23, 2008

(It’s 2 hours before the start of the Jets / Titans game…)

A Jets fans broken heart

A Jets fans broken heart

We, Jet fans have been waiting for a long time for a championship.  As Jet fans we get excited time after time only to have our hearts broken (time after time.) We have learned to be cautiously optimistic as a defense mechanism.

Today is the day we finally get our due.  Last week we beat the Patriots. This week we will beat the Titans. (It would be interesting if the Jets wore their Titans uniforms today ;>) )

How did we get here?

The Jets organization did a great job in the off season. They improved their offensive line.  They improved their defensive line.  Of course there is also the Favre deal.  But the Favre deal was icing on the cake. They improved the foundation of the team before Favre was in the picture.

Realistically, the Jets can win today. They will win today. Yeah, the Jets WILL win today. (It’s still hard to convince myself.)

Green Bay Packers Tampering Charges (NFL)

Posted by TopOfTheThread on September 28, 2008

Tampering, Tapping up: In <a class=”mw-redirect” title=”Professional sport” Brett Favre NY Jetshref=”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Professional_sport”>professional team sports, tapping up (British English) or tampering (American English) is an attempt to persuade a player contracted to one team to transfer to another team, without the knowledge or permission of the player’s current team. This kind of approach is often made through the player’s agent. It is expressly forbidden in many professional leagues. (Wikipedia)

After the soap opera in Green Bay ended, Brett Favre became a NY Jet.Brett Favre Green Bay Packers

Brett Favre is a NY Jet. Will it be for only one year?  Will the Jets be able to sign him for a 3 year extension?

Brett is the kind of athlete who can play quarterback into his early 40’s.  If the Jets can sign him (who knows if Brett wants to stay in NY), it would be a great benefit to the organization.

The Green Bay Packers had a $20 million marketing, personal appearances, offer on the table to Favre.  They made it clear the offer, even after Brett became a Jet, was still available to Favre.  The implication is the offer is one the table to Brett after the 2008, 2009, 2010 seasons…

Even though this pending offer to Favre is not to play football, it directly affects the Jets’ negotiations with Favre.  Brett only has 3 options; (a) re-sign with the Jets, (b) become a free agent, or (3) retire from football.

The pending offer from the Packers makes option (3) more attractive than it would be without the offer.

This is tampering.  The NFL needs to address this unusual situation.

Brett Favre’s First Practice with the Jets

Posted by TopOfTheThread on August 9, 2008

We were there today at Brett Favre’s First Practice with the Jets. The place was packed.  We usually make to at least one training camp practice per year at Hofstra. Normally it is easy to get around. Today there were probably 10 times the number of people… Go Jets!

Number 4 jerseys were selling like hotcakes!
