NFL Draft Do-Over 2013 Jets

No I don’t have a time machine. If I did, I’m not sure 2013 and the New York Jets Draft War Room would be the first location I would travel to. The 2012 Jets were a massive disappointment.

The neurotic negotiations continue between Ryan Fitzpatrick and the New York Jets

For over five months now, Ryan Fitzpatrick and the New York Jets have presented offers to each other that contradicted each other immensely.  Their disagreements escalated to the point where Fitzpatrick allegedly felt “insulted” by the Jets inability to properly calculate his worth to a football team.  Interestingly, it has not been formally reported yet that Fitzpatrick and...

The Jets Are Thrilled With Darron Lee’s “Professionalism”

Petty won't 'be a d—' during competition with Hackenberg

It would be hard for Bryce Petty to look at the New York Jets’ decision to draft a quarterback in the second round this year as anything other than a demonstration of the team’s lack of confidence in him, but that doesn’t mean the former Baylor star is going to take it out on the rookie who could replace him. With Geno Smith expected to start if the Jets cannot come to terms...
