    It was the first day of the season, I think against the Brownsj, the Jets lost on Monday Night football, Riggins had missed camp cause he held out for more money, came with a Mohekian to camp, played the game but fumbled I think, the Jets lost and I cried that night.

  1. That was weird that ward won the Heisman, but ended being drafted in the NBA. He must have been some athlete to do that.
  2. I think it's time that someone breaks out that Fitzpatrick cycle picture. It's funny and true.
  3. I always was intrigued by the position of cornerback and safety. That's why after the Jets, I loved the San Francisco 49ers with Bruce Taylor (brother of Nets Brian Taylor) and Jimmy Johnson on the corners, Mel Phillips and Rosie Taylor the safeties. As for playing the position, it was 2 hand touch in the streets of Queens - stop and go at the sewer, down and out in front of the parked car, button hook near fire hydrant.
  4. And that was so Unfortunate for us. It was obvious how good he was.
  5. This might not be a draft moment, but I remember I had a neighbor who was an inside with the Jets, and when Riggins was drafted, and the off season practices began, he told me and my father that this guy is going to be great, something about how he makes the line go up during the scrimmages (didn't know what that meant, still don't), but Riggins sure was a great draft pick.
  6. I remember in an important game, Bruschi totally killed lavernius coles on a short cross pattern, and he was quite cool about it afterwards and said how much he respected coles..
  7. Good to know that despite tom shane's big ego, he can admit when he's wrong
  8. Was emerson boozer on that squad? . He was also terrific
  9. Probably due to laziness and lack of investigative reporting, so its easier to throw out the word "anonymous sources". I think you see it alot in regular news reporting as well, there is also little real journalism out there, so you see a lot of the same.
  10. Its all about anticipation. Our season is usually over after the first few weeks. So our best time is the off season, when we don't know that we stink yet and so these articles facilitate our anticipation. Its usually all we have.
  11. I think of those great players in the 80s like Wesley walker, one of my all time favorites, also works a regular job because he made nothing compared to what they make today, and he suffered the same bruises and physical abuse to his body as they do today, probably moreso. I remember somebody posted an article here how he is in pain these days from his playing days. It was a tough read.
  12. Report post #35 This is what happens when good posters interact. I took her to a frigid Jets game... I think that says it all...
  13. It makes sense that fellow players and people in general dont like baggarts
  14. Or any short yardage or goalline situation, you would also need a banger.
