    Blinka was suspended for  the hit on Jefferson.  I found no reference to another personal foul.  

    I know.  I cant find it either, but I know there was a second foul that season involving Blinka.  I still remember the announcers going nuts.  "OH NO... NOT STAN BLINKA AGAIN !!!"

    The second foul must have been at an away game, because I was at all the home games in 1982.  If it was a home game, I would not have remembered what the announcers were saying because I was in the stands.  Anyway...   That was the second year I started going to games with my pop.  I was 14 then.

    The 1st personal foul was on Thanksgiving Sunday. 

    They played the Lions the week after on Dec 6th, but the suspension didn't come down until after that game, Dec 8th per the link below, and Blinka missed the Tampa game. 


    So the second personal foul could have been that Monday night game vs the Lions. I was 9, I dont really remember :)

    Pro Football Reference shows Blinka played that MNF game vs Detroit, missed the Tampa game, and was back for the Dolphins game.


    Ahhh... OK.  So he was in the Detroit game.

    Didn't get a suspension.

    "Stan Blinka, the Jets' starting middle linebacker, was suspended for one game without pay today by Commissioner Pete Rozelle of the National Football League for what Rozelle described as a ''foul that ranks with the worst infractions I have witnessed in an N.F.L. game.''

    It was on Monday Night Football vs Detroit. Think it was near the sideline, and Dandy Don went off on him.

    I dont think it was the Detroit game.  That game came right after the Packers game with the Jefferson hit and Blinka was suspended for one game.  He would not have been in the Detroit game due to the suspension, no ???

  5. The other day, I was as reminiscing with a fellow Jets fan about an old chapter in Jets history involving linebacker Stan Blinka from the 1982 season

    There were two over-the-top personal fouls that Blinka committed in two respective games from that season.

     One of them was a forearm to the head of John Jefferson.  Blinka actually left his feet to deliver the blow.  The hit was so out of line that he was suspended for it.  Have a peek at this news link…

     https://www.nytimes.com/1982/12/09/sports/blinka-banned-for-game-by-nfl.html#:~:text=Blinka is only the second,28.

     And now on to the question…

     There was a second serious foul that Blinka committed that came either a game before or a game after that Jeffrson foul.  I can’t remember who Blinka fouled and what exactly he did.  I think it was a clothesline to the neck.   All I remember is the TV announcer who I think was Don Crique having a conniption fit… Saying… “OH NO…. STAN BLINKA !!! NOT STAN BLINKA AGAIN !!! OH NO !!!!  STAN BLINKA !!!!" 

     Does ANYONE remember what that second foul was and who Blinka fouled ???

    Thanx in advance...

    GreenBean is at the Alamo this week and what better topic is there to talk about than the line. The line of scrimmage is where the battles are won.

    What can the Jets do to improve the offensive line?

    Cameron Clark just announced his retirement and although the Jets have talent there is a need for depth. LVT, Morgan Moses, and Connor McDermitt are free agents. Joe Douglas finally has his QB and maybe he spends on the offensive line in free agency. In the past, Douglas has done bargain shopping on the offensive line through free agency. He found George Fant that way, but what will be the plan to find a marquee interior olineman?

    Tune in as GreenBean takes you through the names that are out there in both free agency and the NFL draft. Check out this video and let us know what you think in our NY Jets forum.

    The post How Should the Jets Fortify the Offensive Line appeared first on JetNation.com (NY Jets Blog & Forum).

    By drafting Ekwono and looking to trade Becton for draft capitol.  They may be able to get a # 3 for him.

    but then your forced to take someone you might not want. then try to fire him in 2 years and you have another lawsuit on how you just hire blacks as a placeholder

    At this point, I would not put anything past the NFL's owners and their laundry boy Goodell.

    If Miami hires a black HC in addition to Flores getting a HC job elsewhere, it really cuts the legs out form under his claim. 

    I had that same idea.  Also wondering if the owners are quietly talking to Goodell to "encourage" that to happen

    Hope the Pats pounce on him and then Macc Jones turns into Sam

    Actually... Gase served to an ideal as Peyton Manning's laundry boy in Denver.  He'd be just as good as Bilichic's laundry boy in New England.

    Oh damn man, nice one. 

    Wont lie I was a tad disappointed in the series finale. But overall it's like one of the greats sci fi shows ever made. 

    They had to condense too much into one season.   The ending was a half-baked cop out, but they didn't have a lot of air time left to work with.   I would have preferred if someone spaced Naomi.  Agree, though.  Great Sci F.   The books were too fantastic to have it fail as a series so long as they stuck close to the source material.

    Yup. Most of our coaches actually got a second chance. Herm with KC, Rex with Buffalo and Mangini with Cleveland. I expect Bowles at some point to get a second chance as well.

    Gase had some success with Miami and everyone wanted us to hire an offensive guy. There was also chatter that maybe the Jets needed a guy who was not a first time head coach.

    Even our GMs have gotten a second gig within an organization (not top spot of course).

    Mike Maccagnan was properly his worse hire. Cant believe he was Exec of the year.

    Mr Coffee was a strange choice.  Not so much that his drafts did not bare much fruit, but his bloated FA contracts that returned nothing were a disaster.

    Good points abut Gase, but there were a lot of warning flags on high in Miami before CJ interviewed him.  I chalk it up mostly to CJ's inexperience.  He wasn't able to see through the line of BS Gase was slinging.

    Cant accuse Woody of having a preferred type of coach. Even our coaches personality have been different. You got the introverts (Mangini, Bowles), the extraverts (Herm, Rex) and you got a Gase in there as well.

    I think the only trend is that he seems to prefer defensive guys.

    Unfortunately non of our coaches have been able to build a consistent winner. Herm, Mangini, and Rex had some success but couldnt sustain it. Gase and Bowles not so much. 

    I think Bowles would probably have continued to learn and progress if his tenure lasted longer and given that the roster improved.  So would Mangini.   

    Gase would do better if he had the best roster in the leage and Manning as is QB and defacto OC.

    I don't think any of the former Jet coaches were glaringly bad hires, BUT Gase sure was.  

    I still cant for the life of me figure out why CJ/WJ hired him.

  14. Yes... But what about the Adam Gase scandal ??? There has been talk of him wanting to join the class action suit.

    He is wondering why he was never given extra money from the Dolphins or the Jets for losing so many games.  

    He's said to be furious...

    Great news! Having a surplus of weapons would be welcomed. 

    Yeah... And adding Ekwonu with their first overall pick.  Best player in the draft and unlike Big Ticket, Ekwonu is going to be a regular pro bowler at LT for many years.  Other than franchise QB, that is the next best thing to have. 

    Big Ticket can play RT if he ever shows up, or he can vanish...

    Oh, certainly not with the race stuff. No argument there. 

    But I'm talking about organizational tanking. You don't want your ownership group attached to that stuff. The Dolphins are in hot water. That will effect their coaching hire, free agents, everything. 

    There is nothing hard out there regarding the Jets tanking for Trevor.  All the talking heads were saying how foolish the Jets were for winning the Rams and Cleveland games during the Trevor Lawrence sweepstakes.  They are off the hook with change to spare.  And if it was Williams who was the one out there chatting about it, there is no chance you'll see GW join this class action suit.
