Personal Info

  • Tell us a little bit about yourself... Renaissance man. I can send back the wine or take out the garbage.
  • Where do you live? SoCal & Tokyo most of the time.. The scary parts of SE Asia part-time.

  • What do you do for a living? Mainly a marketing guy. Part time professional trouble maker.

Jets Info

  • What is your favorite Jets related memory? Not SB III. I knew we had that. Mine was at Shea on the usual windy day. Namath bringing the team from behind in two plays with passes to Sauer and Maynard. The first for 50 yards. The next for the TD. I cannot remember the team (hell, I have been following this team for 50+ years), but it was one of our big rivals back then and at a critical time in the AFL season. The way Joe would look right and in a split second throw a long bullet to the left side was effin' magic. .
  • Do you have season tickets? No. I try to get to one game at the Hackensack Swamp and a road game every season.
  • What Jets memory broke your heart? Too many to re-visit. I let that $hit just drip off me. I noticed you left the most room for responses to this single question. Assholes.
  • Who is your favorite member of the NY Jets flight crew? The one with the tight a$$.
  • Where you alive for Super Bowl III? Very much alive and kicking. I was 16 and a Jets nut job even then. I have been a fan since Day 1.

  1. Tanny has finely honed the skill of kicking the can down the road.
  2. QB Dropback Question

    Namath used to back peddle in addition to the classic drop back.  Man, the ball would come out quick when he did.  Imagine Joe in today's game with the current rules and shotgun all the time.  FWIW, Joe was the best when it came to play fakes and the way he played out simple hand offs.

    Shirley, you jest.

    Or Apollo Creed...
  5. Derrick Henry?

    If he gets a step or two beyond the line of scrimmage, and manages to fall forward on the tackle, he should be good for 4-4.5 YPC based on his length and inertia alone.  I am not so sure of how he fits today's NFL, though.  Holes will close a lot quicker than in college and more tacklers will be there quickly.  Tougher to break tackles, too. Once he gets through,he is as explosive as heck and his long stride turns into an asset.  I think comparisons to Trent Richardson are off the mark, as are the Eric Dickerson comparisons.  No way I burn a first round pick on him -- a value-pick, multi-faceted back later on is my preference. But I don't think Henry will be a bust.
  6. Bills hiring Rob Ryan

    Life is sweet.
  7. Marvin Lewis needs to be FIRED!

    No, he isn't. 
  8. Bowles -I will say it

    This qualifies as a quality post these days.  Or is it all about stream of consciousness? It is this type of venereal wart of a poster that will eventually make this once wonderful place whither and die. 
  9. Bowles -I will say it

    It is the M-O-O-P-S, you dumb phuck.  And we only rolled over in the big one because Greece was so beautiful that time of year. 
  10. Bowles -I will say it

    I don't come around much anymore, even as a lurker, but this post really saddens me.  My favorite 'Mercano stronzo has resorted to posting like a run of the mill JAG.  Truly sad.  And, no, I am not taking a shot at you -- I am 100% mother-friggin-serious. The new crop of posters just don't have the smarts to comprehend for your old T0mness, let alone engage in mental jousting.  No capacity for your old, rapier-smart wit so you now have to dumb it down to levels never seen before, like this vanilla post.  This place has died and ugly death.  Ciao, stronzo!

  12. It's time for a change

    Meowwwwww, you chicken-sh*t, candy ass, limp dick jabroni.
  13. Aikman efficiency ratings

    Too many piss ants allowed in here these days.  Max should have listened to Trump and built a wall.  He went for the old rope a dope and, sadly, will regret it in the end.
  14. Let's be realistic...

    Second that.  And if he cannot do it with what the Jets put out there along side of him on the DL, imagine him having to be "the man".  When it comes down to results and ability, he is at the bottom end of the "real money" list.
