Patriots and Jets: Two Teams Heading in Oppositte Directions

January 2011. The New York Jets traveled to Foxboro to face the red-hot New England Patriots in a divisional round playoff game. Just a month earlier the Patriots had beaten the Jets on that same field 45-3. However, the playoff matchup was a vastly different story. The Jets physically and mentally beat New England en […]

Patriots Block Last Second Field Goal to Outlast Jets, 27-25

Well, that was close. The New England Patriots literally hung on by the tips of their fingers, blocking a last gasp 58-yard field goal attempt by the New York Jets to escape with a 27-25 win at home on Thursday Night Football. Danny Amendola made a surprise appearance in Week 7, catching what turned out […]

Do the Patriots have the Jets Playbook?

According to new Browns coach Mike Pettine, the former Jets defensive coordinator, old 2011 copies of the Jets defensive playbook may be in the Patriots’ possession. “The initial playbook itself is actually quite thin, and that’€™s by design,” Pettine told SI’s Greg Bedard. “€œI don’€™t put a lot of graduate-level information in it. We know […]

Belichick Hates Welker Because Shaughnessy is Off the Patriots Bandwagon

Bill Belichick obviously hates Wes Welker. More like, Dan Shaughnessy obviously will write anything that is contrarian and will get him readers. Shaughnessy has flipped sides on this year’s Patriots team enough times that it’s hard to count. One minute he’s lauding them for miraculous comebacks and the next he’s lambasting them for poor personnel […]

Week 2 NFL Preview: Patriots vs. Jets

If you asked me to preview this game a week ago, I would have chuckled while predicting a laughable score in the Patriots favor. Today, there is no way I can do that. The NFL is a crazy league. The change of feeling has more to do with what I saw from the Pats than what […]

The AFC East According to Rex Ryan

 “They [the Patriots] are an excellent football team, but to say they we’ll never catch them, that’s ridiculous. There is no chance, there is absolutely no percent of a chance that I believe that in my heart. And I’ll never concede that.”-Rex Ryan After Thursday’s Thanksgiving massacre, Rex Ryan came out with comments saying that […]

Patriots Must Respond to Difficult Challenge on Thanksgiving vs. Jets

The last time the Patriots were scheduled to play the Jets, we heard the same propaganda from the media and the fans. Pats will roll. The Jets stink. Mark Sanchez is not a big-time quarterback. All of this may be true. But, I wasn’t being a contrarian when I predicted a Jets victory, and I […]

Preview: Jets-Patriots Battle for First Place in AFC East

On Sunday afternoon at 4:25, the New England Patriots get set to take on the New York Jets, two heated divisional rivals tied atop the AFC East. One of only two late afternoon games in the NFL, all eyes will be on the battle for sole possession of first place – and a plus-.500 record. […]

COLUMN: Mark Sanchez Failing in the Perfect Situation

Mark Sanchez stood on the sidelines, minutes after an uninspired three-and-out gave the Denver Broncos the ball on their own 5-yard line. It looked, at the time, that the Jets defense would once again bail out an errant game from Sanchez. Once again, it looked like the Jets defense would mask Sanchez’s mediocrity. See in […]

Sign of Apocolypse: Belichick Talks Smack After Jets Game

Bill Belichick is known for a number of things, namely: winning and the hoodie. He is not known for controversial comments, especially ones insulting an opposing team. Which is why it was so surprising to hear that following the Patriots 37-16 victory over the Jets, Belichick said: “Thirty-seven points on the best defense in the […]

Patriots Perspective: Why We Hate the New York Jets

The rivalry between the New York Jets and New England Patriots has gained intensity in recent years. Perhaps it was the dramatic departure of Eric Mangini that triggered the feud, or the spiced up media frenzy upon Rex Ryan’s arrival in New York. The players on the field have brought their own drama to the […]

Rex Ryan to Play Patriots Fan in Adam Sandler Movie “Donny Boy”

If I say “Adam Sandler movies,” what comes to mind? Billy Madison? Happy Gilmore? Waterboy? The Wedding Singer? Big Daddy? Many of these movies were hilarious. But, the other common attribute these movies share is that they were released in the 90′s. All of them. Notable movies since? Little Nicky (ugh). Mr. Deeds (meh). The […]

Podcast: Jets vs Patriots Game Preview

Patriots! Jets! This week always has a special feel to it. We thought it would be appropriate to merge SoB and SoNY for a preview podcast. I had Kristine Reese of Sports of New York  on the SoB! Podcast to discuss every facet of the game. Is the Sanchize ready to take the next step? Is […]

Rex Ryan Puts “Foot” Down, Asks Other Teams to Beat Patriots

Rex Ryan is a lot of things: He’s motivational. He’s emotional. He’s charismatic. He’s creepy. But he’s also paranoid, and lacks self-confidence. “What’s that last thing you just said? Lacks self-confidence, are you effing kidding me,” you rave,  “This dude’s a boisterous clown with the self-confidence of Ron Jeremy and Justin Timberlake…combined.” You’ve been duped, and […]

Jets Lose Interest in Moss, Avoid Disaster

It’s been an interesting week for former New England Patriot, Minnesota Viking, Tennessee Titan and Oakland Raider Randy Moss. On Monday, Boston Globe reporter Greg Bedard reported that the New York Jets were interested in signing the free-agent wide receiver. Less than 24 hours later, Fox Sports reporter Adam Schein tweeted that the Jets had […]
