Smallthoughts: Rant of the Week… New York Jets


The rant was all set…I was going to blast the hype over Knick fans going bananas in the draft lottery but before my fingers hit the keys…The New York Jets came to Knick fans rescue. The Jets fired their general manager …Mike Maccagnan. Why? Why now? There were rumblings that Mike MacCagnan and newly hiredContinue reading “Smallthoughts: Rant of the Week… New York Jets”

Smallthoughts: Old School Tuesday…Mickey Shuler


Hey Jet fans remember when the team actually threw to their Tight-end more than one a year? The last Tight End that they threw to regularly it seems was Mickey Shuler. He was drafted in 1978 as a third-round pick (#61 overall) in 1978 NFL Draft by the New York Jets for whom he would play for 12 seasons. The 6′Continue reading “Smallthoughts: Old School Tuesday…Mickey Shuler”

Smallthoughts: Rave of the Week …New York Jets


It is very unusual for the New York Jets to be on my Rave of the Week as I have normally had them as Rants of the Week for a number of reasons. But for once fair is fair they get the Rave of the Week. They had a good week capped by their signingContinue reading “Smallthoughts: Rave of the Week …New York Jets”

Smallthoughts: Rant of the Week…New York Jets


The three ring circus known as the New York Jets never ceases to amaze. Only the Jets could turn down a Super Bowl winning coach for a head coach who was in the mist of a mutiny with a record 2 games under 500.Mike McCarthy the super bowl winning coach with the Green By PackersContinue reading “Smallthoughts: Rant of the Week…New York Jets”

Smallthoughts: Rant of the Week…Doug Marrone


I get that everyone is shinning on Doug Marrone for getting past the Steelers. But this idea that the New York Jets missed out on this great opportunity to hire Doug Marrone as if he was the next Bill Parcells or Don Shula is ridiculous. First he chose to walk away from Buffalo when thereContinue reading “Smallthoughts: Rant of the Week…Doug Marrone”

Smallthoughts: Jet Fans It Will Be a Painful Year…With a Purpose


The predictions are in …the Jets are listed as a team that will finish on the high end of 3 wins …if that many.  Honestly I think 3 wins is a lot it’s either 0-16 or 1-15 3 wins 4 wins even 5 wins is really reaching. For this franchise it’s either 0-16 or 1-15Continue reading “Smallthoughts: Jet Fans It Will Be a Painful Year…With a Purpose”

Smallthoughts; Rave of the Week …Todd Bowles


If Todd Bowles is indeed going to take the fall if as anticipated the Jets tank the season, say this for him he is going to go down changing the culture in Floral Park …literally. According to a published report by ESPN’s Rich Cimini the Jets coach did more than overhaul the roster he wantedContinue reading “Smallthoughts; Rave of the Week …Todd Bowles”

Smallthoughts: Rant of the Week…Dallas Cowboys


Explain this to me …it’s ok to have a player who was arrested for domestic violence on your roster (Greg Hardy) and a current player who allegedly accused on domestic violence and who may be facing a suspension or not yet be accused of petit larceny and you get cut. What a double standard. OnContinue reading “Smallthoughts: Rant of the Week…Dallas Cowboys”

Smallthoughts: Rant of the Week …Todd Bowles


Todd Bowles in coach on the hot seat based on last year’s 5-11 record. Normally he would have a directive to win or else. But that isn’t the case yet, the New York Jets are in rebuilding mode plain and simple. However that doesn’t mean that you can’t hold players accountable for things like tardiness.Continue reading “Smallthoughts: Rant of the Week …Todd Bowles”
