Dan Quinn favorite for New York Jets coaching gig

woody-johnsonjpg-b68ed6a00e9c5a86_large

The New York Jets coaching carousel has made many stops, with not much momentum in between. Owner Woody Johnson reached out for help from former general managers, Charley Casserly and Ron Wolf, which likely is the reason the new brain trust is taking their time while staying mum.

Jets fans may be impatient, but Johnson seems to finally understand that this is the logical way to fill the head- coaching void.

Jets are Geno Smith’s team; for better or worse

genosmith

The New York Jets lackluster play is more frustrating than normal because this team has shown that they have talent. Behind all of the penalties, turnovers, and play calls that will make your head spin is a team that has managed to keep every game close. This is a team that was actually beating up on the Green Bay Packers 21-3 at one point.

Chicago Bears All-22: Rookie DT’s

Chicago Bears DTs

The Chicago Bears drafted rookie defensive tackles Ego Ferguson and Will Sutton to help add youth to an aging defensive line. Ferguson is more of a running game clogger and Sutton a pass rush specialist. Against the New York Jets this past Monday, Sutton earned extended snaps with the injury to Jeremiah Ratliff and showed a lot of promise. In limited snaps, Ferguson showed his ability to use size and above average hand work to get to the quarterback.

The images below come from NFL Game Rewind’s ‘All-22,’ which offers fans the ability to see what the coaches see for a nominal fee. Sutton is number 93 and Ferguson is number 95. [Read more…]

NY Jets should effectively rush Aaron Rodgers

Mo Wilk

This NY Jets defense contains arguably Rex Ryan’s best pass rush since he came to New York in 2009.

Through the years, he’s been able to call defensive gems against the likes of Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. He did so against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers back in 2010, but the offense faltered and the Jets were shutout 9-0. Rodgers went just 15 of 34 for 74 yards and 0 touchdowns in that one.

NY Jets just cannot lose to Raiders rookie QB Derek Carr

New York Jets v Tennessee Titans

If there’s one category Rex Ryan is dominant in, it’s his ability to make rookie quarterbacks look like they don’t belong on the field. With a 7-3 record against rookie quarterbacks, Jets fans should look forward to seeing Derek Carr step out onto the MetLife Stadium turf with the Oakland Raiders. Some NFL pundits wonder whether Derek Carr should even be on the field this weekend.

Say what you will about Matt Schaub and his 2013 pick-six plague over the course of 10 games, but he has been slinging the ball on NFL defenses since 2004. The Jets secondary that will run out onto the field this Sunday would’ve been one of the worst secondaries that Schaub has seen throughout his 128 career starts. With Dee Milliner all but ruled out for Sunday, Ryan goes from Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie to Kyle Wilson and Antonio Allen.

NY Jets Stephen Hill: another Mike Tannenbaum bust?

stephen-hill

Mike Tannenbaum had a few successful trades, but he also had a few horrid ones. For as bad as the Mark Sanchez draft day trade looks now, the Jets still got two AFC Championship runs in return.

One Tannenbaum trade that looks to be the most haunting includes Georgia Tech wide receiver, Stephen Hill.

bengals

 

Making predictions for the Super Bowl on February 2nd today on August 27th. Yes, you got to love it. That’s why I’m all about the Cincinnati Bengals as your Super Bowl champion. When you make NFL divisional and Wild Card picks before even the 4th preseason game…well that’s bold.

Look for these to be about as accurate as my NFL mock draft. So don’t take this with a grain of salt. How about a whole truckload of salt. Well, time is a wasting so let’s jump right to the predictions.

Chicago Bears Free Agency Analysis and Predictions

NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New York Giants

Well, that escalated quickly.

GM Phil Emery followed up his amazing opening act last season with an equally impressive performance in the first few hours of this year’s free agency period.

About 60 minutes after the opening bell, former Giants tight end Martellus Bennett was watching the ink dry on his new four-year deal with the Bears. The terms of Bennett’s contract have not yet been disclosed.

A few hours later, ESPN’s Adam Schefter confirmed that former Saints Pro Bowl left tackle Jermon Bushrod would be joining Bennett in the Windy City on a five-year, $36 million deal, making him the highest paid offensive lineman in team history. [Read more…]

Tim Tebow Reportedly Will Ask the Jets for A Trade

Tim_Tebow_Jesus_Pose

With Robert Griffin III stealing all of Tim Tebow’s ESPN attention, the New York Jets quarterback has found a way to land himself back in the headlines.

Tebow, who has only started for the Jets once this season, will reportedly request a trade or to be released if he doesn’t get the chance to start over Greg McElroy in the final two games of the season.

The Chicago Bears are feeling the pressure of the national spotlight

Cutler_Ground

Jay Cutler’s expression in this picture is all you need to know about the state of the Bears this week.

If there is one thing everyone seeks in life, it’s respect. The Bears have had the respect of Chicagoans for years.

But many fans like myself have found it baffling that year in and year out, the Bears would get no respect or media attention nationally. Maybe that has something to do with only 3 playoff trips in Lovie Smith’s tenure (9 years).
