Are the Jets full of Divas?
The sky is falling, well for anyone who is a Jet’s fan. The Jets and their coach is imploding before our very eyes. As every season goes, the Jets or more accurately Rex Ryan had claimed that the Jets are once again the team to beat. Why would we expect anything less? We’ve heard this before, right? The Jets were pretty close a few times, this year would be like no other. The Jets find themselves sitting at 2-3, luckily for the Jets, they play the Miami Dolphins which is the equivalent of playing your local high school varsity team. First we had Derek Mason, plaxico burress, and Mr team Captain himself santonio Holmes charge into Rex Ryan’s office to complain about the Offensive Play-calling. Of course like any situation, this was leaked to the media and immediately started waves around the NFL. The following week Derek Mason would find himself traded to the Houston Texans. santonio Holmes again would come out and now criticizing the Offensive line for poor protection of Mark sanchez the great. Lets toss in some critique of joe willie namath himself as well, while Rex Ryan stating that Namath would not be good enough to backup sanchez. Ryan was right- an over 50 year old man wouldn’t be able to backup a under 25 year OL QB in New York, but he sure would give him a run for his money. What has happened to these Jets, the ones who were the hot trend in the NFL. Could it really be all of the distractions? Are these distractions catching up with the Jets? Maybe the Jets simply are not that good. What happened to Revis Island? Haven’t heard that in awhile huh? Revis Island has dried up. Lets look at this a moment. First we have Mark sanchez who does a better half naked pose on the cover of a magazine then he does playing QB. Next you have Rex Ryan and his foot fetish clogging up Youtube, we can’t forget Rex Ryan filling his players heads with” we are the team to beat” This is a total disrespect to teams lik the Texans, Chargers, dare I say Ravens? Every team goes in thinking that they can win this game- Ever saw the movie Any Given Sunday Rex? Nothing is given in the NFL, nothing is handed to you in this game, including being ” the team to beat” You earn this title Rex, Pittsburgh had earned it last year, quickly they are sinking into a state of abiss as well, so you have company in the dark hole. The focus in New York has been clouded by distractions. Where is Rex Ryan to squash these distractions? Oh the man is part of them with his foot fetish. When Dallas played New York, the entire game centered around two brothers- first off .. Dallas has a head coach not named Ryan, you wouldn’t know it however. We know that the Ryan brothers are brash, forward and cocky, but is that the way to go? Just ask the Eagles so called dream team. Yes the Jets have lost focus of winning, there are much to many divas on this team, the prisoners are running the asylum. Rex Ryan is trying to be the players best friend and not their coach. Rex gets paid to be a coach not one of the boys. What needs to happen is a ego check. Rex Ryan needs to get into santonio Homes face, spit needs to fly from his mouth like the old cower days, Ryan needs to tell Homes in only 4 letter words that this is the Ryan show not the santonio Holmes show. Mark Sanchez needs a reality check as well.. the man isn’t good at this game, he wants to be a playboy not an NFL star.. that worked out well for Matt leinart huh? You USC guys will never get it. You’ve had things handed to you while at USC, Reggie Bush, Matt leinart, Mike Williams, now Mark sanchez. Here in the NFL you come to work, you put your hard hat on. Here in the NFL you are playing with men who put time into this game, they feed their families with this game. The Jets are a sinking ship full of Divas in deed, yes the sky is falling in New York. If somehow the Dolphins do win this game this Sunday, all hell will break loose
Are we watching the 100 Million Dollar man implode before our very eyes? Lets rewind shall we? Lets go back to last season- We had an amazing story, Mike Vick released from prison only to come in to replace Kevin Kolb as the starter. Vick would go on to have an MVP like year as he quickly pointed out himself. Vick had claimed that he should be the MVP of the league, nobody else. Vick would not give anyone credit but himself. Lets fast forward to the end of the season- Vick would toss an INT to cost the Eagles the game, doing what he quite often did while in Atlanta, take the team on his shoulders and force a ball that ended up going into a defenders hands. The Eagles would have a long plane ride home that night- they were knocked out of the playoffs and the Packers would go on to win the Super Bowl. What happened might or might not shock you, Vick was rewarded with a new 100 million dollar contract. Most people questioned this move, many did not truly believe that Vick was changed. Lets take a walk down memory lane thus far this season and find out for ourselves. First we had the Dream Team label given to the eagles, this came after a rash of big names signed to small 1 year deals, the Eagles gobbled up everything that had a heartbreak in free agency, well done. We started the season with Vick giving himself props after his victory,saying that he was lights out and forgetting that NFL football is a team game, a team game made up of a WR, TE, RB, OL, QB and a defense.. yet Vick was lights out, nobody else, right? Lets continue.. we move to Michael Vick’s homecoming with so much push by ESPN and the NFL to promote this game as one of the biggest of the year. What happened? Mick Vick of course would hear the boo’s rain down from the crowd as he entered the stadium, most of the talk revolved around the racially divide over Vick and how some still support him in Atlanta.. a slap in the face to Matt Ryan who deserves some big props, sadly the talk revolved around the attention starved Michael Vick. Mike Vick would end up having to leave mid game due to being pounded into the ground,while Vick was leaving.. the boo’s again rained down- Vick pointed to the scoreboard during the Quarter as the Eagles were winning, as a final stick to the fans and the Falcon organization that cut him. Yes the Falcons organization had done Mr Vick wrong, cutting a criminal who killed, abused and murdered dogs, who has done irrepressible damage to Pit bulls forever- Lets continue- You’re probably assuming that the Eagles would go on to win, after all, we have Vick who pointed to the scoreboard.. this would be wrong. The Falcons came back and played inspired football to win the game and defeat Michael Vick and the Eagles. Lets continue- We then had Vick blame refs for his bad play, complain about a writer criticizing the Eagles and hurting Mr Vick’s feelings- calling the Eagles Dumb and Slopping. Vick would go on to say- that unquote- if you do not play this game I don’t think you can even make a comment like that- I am sorry to tell Mr Vick but writers get paid to give an opinion on a game- Vick gets paid to complete passes.. Vick tossed 4 INT’S his last game- I think that Michael Vick needs to focus more on completing a pass rather than focus on cry about a writer calling the Eagles at 1-4 what they are- Sloppy and dumb. Yes the Michael Vick we all love and wanted to believe it, he is returning.. the old Vick that Atlanta had gotten. My question to Eagles ownership is the same as it was before the season started- 100 Million? What were you thinking?
