NY Jets #70 - Part 3
A chance to chat with Gus Frerotte If all we can say about Lance Legree  #70 is found in this single image, then that will suffice. Playing in 2005, in a meaningless late season losing effort, in one of the worst seasons in the club's history, Lance Legree ...

NY Jets #70 - Part 1
The other day I was listening to "This American Life" about the twisted identities of Asa and Forrest Carter, two men who were in fact the same person, the latter resurrecting himself from the vanishing act of the former. Asa Carter was a violent, viciously...

NY Jets #69- Part 2
Jeff Criswell wore #61 in his first three seasons with the Jets, and then wore #69 for the duration of his career, both with the Jets and the Chiefs. From little Graceland College in Iowa, Criswell was a 6'7" near 300 lb. offensive lineman who played seven ...

Mike
This is Mike, my dog. I don't know how old Mike is or his breed, if there is any to be discerned. We adopted him four and a half years ago from a shelter. He didn't have any tags or any information when he was found by a thoughtful woman in central New Jers...

I had been building up with some expectation to writing about  Reggie McElroy  #68 with remembrances of his playing for the Jets throughout much of the ups and downs of the 80's. He also had a career well into the 90's with Kansas City, Minnesota and the Ra...

NY Jets #70 - Part 4
Though he came to the Jets in 1994, when Pete Carroll coached the team for his first and only season,  Leonard Marshall  #70 is forever a Giant in our minds. We signed him and Ronnie Lott in 1993 and Art Monk in 1994, all in the spirit of finding jobs for o...

NY Jets #70 - Part 2
Like a lot of people who love professional football in the United States, I actually know very little beyond the most obvious statistical evidence as to what makes its player good or crap. I know little or nothing about what makes for a good defensive linem...

NY Jets #69 - Part 3
I just finished reading David Peace's Red or Dead , about Liverpool's legendary manager during the 60's and 70's, Bill Shankly. If you can get past the style of its narration, then it's worth reading as an epic, with its relish for naming names and numbers ...

Next week, AMC will be showing the last episode of the first half of Mad Men 's final season. They're cutting in half the way the network insisted Breaking Bad   be done, and though Walter White's end was made even more suspenseful by halving his final seas...

NY Jets #68 - Part 5
Kevin Mawae #68 There are players that you never really let go of, and considering the number of great ones who've been let go by the Jets, the dropping of  Kevin Mawae  #68 in favor of Nick Mangold has always seemed like the kind of bargain football demand...

NY Jets #68 - Part 3
According to Rich Cimini at the start of this season, the Jets were as young at potential starters as they were the last time they were the youngest - 1979. The season started with a home game against Cleveland, a long, laborious, agonizing exercise on the ...

In the past there's been fine coffee and delicious quick snacks there, but what's with the nasty attitude from behind the counter? Whoever was there on July 22 in the morning were the nastiest people we encountered over ten days in the entire city of Paris. We spoke French politely, and they treated us like garbage. How cliche. I'm sorry that you have to work on a hot Monday morning and cater to people from another country, all in a city that is the most beautiful on Earth. Mais c'est la vie.
