Jets Rumors & News

There I was, a grown ass man, on my knees two feet from the television.  It’s been a long time since I’ve been in this position, maybe twenty years.  It’s funny how desperation can drive a person all the way to the fetal position.  Jets paraphernalia lay strewn about the room; anything I could throw had already been chucked in a violent manner.  My Patriots fan roommate was already warming up his gloating voice.  My girlfriend was wearing a Jets Santa hat to humor me.  I’m not proud of this moment.  I was on my knees and I wasn’t even alone.

Nothing ever good comes from the Dallas Cowboys winning. Ever. No matter who they’re playing. Jerry Jones is insufferable. Terrell Owens is insufferable. Tony Romo is insufferable. The only good thing ever associated with the Cowboys is this movie (yes, Bucky Dent starred alongside Jane Seymour and Bert Convy). That’s it.

The Bad

When the most exciting play of the game for you is a safety and your best players on the field are John Carney and Jeff Feagles, you know you’re in trouble. Eli Manning didn’t have a chance in this game. He had no protection, …
