The Patriots: A Hornets Nest the Jets Poke at Own Peril

Ever since Monday, we’ve all been subject to what the media calls the “War of Words” between the New York Jets and the New England Patriots. But is it really a war if one side attacks and the other side doesn’t respond? Perhaps this should be re-named the “Bay of Pigs Invasion of Words,” or […]

So, IS Tom Brady an A-hole?

Noted etiquette expert and New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie sparked controversy this week when he called New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady an “a**hole” for allegedly pointing to the Jets sideline after a touchdown during New England’s 45-3 victory in Week 13. “Everybody’s seen the tape of him pointing and taunting at the sideline […]

Dear Rex Ryan: A Letter About Tom Brady & The Playoffs

You’re right, Rex. Peyton Manning would have been watching your Wildcard playoff game this weekend. Manning is probably a big Colts fan, I doubt he would miss their first playoff game. Oh, is that not what you meant? Right, if Peyton Manning were Tom Brady, who had a bye this week because his team went […]

Jets Beat Colts to Set Up Showdown With Patriots

“There’s nobody like (Peyton Manning) in the league. Nobody studies like him,” Ryan said. “I know Brady thinks he does. I think there’s probably a little more help with (New England coach Bill) Belichick with Brady than there is with Peyton Manning.” While preparing to play the Colts, Rex took a jab at Tom Brady, and […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 16

Just one week left in the season! Nine of the 12 teams have punched their ticket so far, and as long as the Rams lose or tie in Week 17, a losing team will make the playoffs. The AFC’s road to the Super Bowl goes through Foxboro, and unless the Falcons lose at home to […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 15

Just two weeks to go until the playoffs are completely set. And after a concussion, Brett Favre won’t be there to see them. Both the Patriots and the Falcons have a magic number of one to clinch the #1 seeds in their conferences. And at 6-8, one of the Rams or Seahawks have to win […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 14

Just three weeks left, and Favre and the Vikings are done. And New England is essentially a lock for #1. The Jets, despite doing so poorly, are also pretty well-ensconced in a Wildcard spot, as are the Ravens. The Colts are on the outside looking in, but they do have a home game against Jacksonville […]

UPDATE: Sal Alosi’s suspension has been upped to indefinite. ——————– UPDATE: Sal Alosi has been suspended without pay for the remainder of the season and fined $25,000.

Patriots-Jets “Game” Rewind: Rex Nuts Up, Jets Don’t Show Up

Well then, I guess that settles that. Expecting a knock-down, drag-out fight in the Ward-Gatti tradition, we instead got Tyson-Spinks, except this bout had a predetermined, rigid time structure and no standing eight count. But 45-3? On Tedy Bruschi Night? Not even in Pete Sheppard’s wettest dreams did anyone see this bloodletting coming. You could […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 13

Just one short month remains in the season, and still, no team has clinched a playoff berth. That’s not a surprise in the NFC West, where it’s still quite possible the division winner will have a losing record. Only in the AFC West does the division leader have a lead more than one game. And […]

Patriots Obliterate “Jets” 45-3

It was the match-up of the season: the New England Patriots versus the New York Jets, the two best teams in the AFC. The Patriots were unbeaten at home, having won 25 straight at Gillette. The Jets were unbeaten on the road this season. At stake: the lead in the AFC East and the best […]

Patriots Keys to Victory: Week 13 vs. Jets

The New England Patriots have had a lot of big games this season, but none of those come close in importance to their upcoming Week 13 matchup with the division rival New York Jets. The Jets and Patriots enter this week’s showdown with records of 9-2, which means the winner of this game will have […]

Bill is a Pill, Rex’s in Effect

Exhibit A is short, truculent, crabby and comports himself with the miffed, detached air of someone running late for a colonoscopy. Exhibit B is large, boisterous, expressive, sometimes downright jolly, possessing an everyman wit you could easily see coming from a barber or short-order cook. They are as different and as similar as the Grinch […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 12

Things are getting really interesting. The four best teams in the AFC will all face each other next week, A team may win the NFC West with a losing record, something no division has ever experienced before. And defenses are starting to figure out Michael Vick a little bit. And the Colts and Packers are […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 11

We’re six weeks away from knowing who will face who in January, and Chilly won’t be around to see it. Houston fell yet again, and the Jets won late again, the Falcons came up big in St Louis, and the Panthers are the new Rams, thanks to Buffalo’s massive comeback over Cincy. Thanks to New […]
