When Zach Wilson’s non-contact injury on his right knee was a bone bruise and torn meniscus that would put him out 2-4 weeks, the typical Jets hopelessness caught up to everyone. It was all the typical stuff to expect: that there’s already reason to believe that the Jets should...
The Giants are now 5 days removed from their first preseason game. Since that game, the Giants have had to deal with injuries hitting them hard. The hope is that none of them are serious, and the Giants will likely bring in more bodies once most teams cut their rosters down to 85 by the end of the day. One position group that hasn’t been affected by the injury bug (knock on wood), is the running back room, and boy did they over perform expectations last Thursday.

One preseason game in the books. The offensive line took some positive steps forward against the Patriots. But one lineman, Ben Bredeson, took advantage of his opportunity to show he can play guard and center at a credible level. In 2020 Ben Bredeson, 6’5″ and 315 lbs, was drafted by...
Well, it’s official – the 2022 NFL season is off and running and for the Jets, the usual story line doesn’t start off with a win in this week’s first preseason game but with injuries. Two steps forward, three steps back was the mantra for 2021 and I truly hope it’s not more of the same for this year.
Ladies and gentlemen, insurance has entered the building. The New York Jets have signed veteran offensive tackle Duane Brown from the Seattle Seahawks to a two-year, 22 million dollar contract. Brown, a first-round pick by the Houston Texans out of Virginia Tech, has made five pro bowls since entering the league in 2008.
Ladies and Gentleman, football is back. Now, I know some people don’t like preseason football, but if you opened up this blog and decided to read it, I imagine you will be watching. Preseason football is for the true die hards, and tomorrow, we get to see the position battles we have been reading about all spring and summer come to life. Even for those who just want to see starters play, you’ll at least get to see them take some snaps according to Brian Daboll.

There is perhaps no more controversial player on the Yankees than Isiah Kiner-Falefa. Certain people think he is one of the more underrated pickups, while others want him to be replaced.

The Jets summer training camp is now two weeks old and fans are beginning to wonder how the Gang Green will really be come time to face an actual opponent this upcoming season. Well, fans, you only have to wait until this Friday night when the Jets square off against the Philadelphia Eagles in their first of three preseason games before September. Mind you, these are preseason games and don’t expect fireworks from returning starters or new rookies and trade acquisitions. What head coach Robert Saleh is looking for is progress from last season’s 4-13 record and of course the fight for spots on the final Jets roster will be spotlighted during these preseason games.
Getting after the quarterback was always the strength of head coach Robert Saleh in San Francisco and he looks to keep it that way entering year two of his defensive scheme. It starts with DE Carl Lawson, an exciting free 2021 free agency acquisition who saw minimal time on the field last season due to injury.
The New York Red Bulls’ multiple two goal leads on Saturday night weren’t enough to hold off The Colorado Rapids. The third worst team in the league’s western conference scored five goals against New York. Another second half collapse hands the team another loss, 5-4. Struber has dropped three games in six days including Saturday’s friendly versus FC Barcelona.
The Giants are now a week into training camp. Coming into camp, there were a couple of position battles that many were focused on. One position group that wasn’t at the forefront of everyone’s minds was edge rusher. This was likely because Azeez Ojulari and the 5th overall pick in April’s draft, Kayvon Thibodeaux, are entrenched as the starters. That hasn’t changed through the first week of training camp. Behind them is where guys are making plays, and making a push to make themselves a featured part of the Giants 2022 pass rush.

The Subway Series regained its luster in late July of this season after many years of not stirring as much buzz as it used to. The players themselves said it wasn’t really a big deal, and the Mets were not in contention often enough to make the crosstown clashes more compelling.
Well, here we go again! The 2022-23 NFL season is now in full gear with all 32 training camps going full speed into their second week in anticipation of the first preseason games of the year. After a rough and brutal 2021-22 campaign, the Jets are looking at maturity and experience to bolster their QB corps. In a surprise move, the Jets did not draft any young play callers out of this year’s NFL Draft and instead have decided to rely on tested and battle-ready QB’s to lead the Gang Green this season.
Saturday was not a normal game by any means at Red Bull Arena. A sold out crowd was mostly cheering as the visiting team came out on top. But overall, seeing the New York Red Bulls battle La Liga giant FC Barcelona to a 2-0 loss had more positives than one might realize.
Jets Reach Deal With Saints LB Kwon Alexander – Coach Robert Saleh Reunited With Former NFC Champion
The New York Jets have reached a deal with veteran outside linebacker Kwon Alexander on a one-year deal worth $1.12 million with a $152,000 signing bonus. Alexander was a pivotal role in Robert Saleh’s defense with the 49ers that got them to the Superbowl in the 2019 season. After spending the beginning stint of his career in Tampa Bay, Alexander came over to the Bay in 2019. Halfway through the 2020 season, Alexander made his way over to the New Orleans Saints where he finished the season. He played this last season in 2021 with the Saints as well, where he recorded a career-high 3.5 sacks to go along with one forced fumble, one fumble recovery, and one interception. Alexander played a pivotal role in a Saints defense that singlehandedly kept the Big Easy in the wildcard hunt until the last possible moment.
The Giants are now 2 practices into camp, and there has been a lot to take in. The offense is reportedly using a ton of motion and looking like an actuall offense, Kadarius Toney is making plays, Kayvon Thibodeax is getting to the QB, and the Giants are looking like a real team. Now, it’s 2 days in, so many things can change, but its an encouraging sign none the less. Along with all of these other points, there is one Giant who has made some plays that is making every Giant fan remember exactly who is he.
