Are you ready? Edition of Post of the Week - August 9th, 2007


Recommended Posts

So here we are at the first preseason game, the annual indication that Labor Day and then football is right around the corner. Even though it's like 752 degrees in North Carolina today, football is in the air and this legume is getting downright excited about it. Nothing beats the fall - the pennant races, the start of football, the nice weather. It's the best time of the year. Anyhow, here's the best from this week here at JN - hope you enjoy!

This week's nominations were:


Topic: Moss Injures his hammy

Originally Posted by Jetman67


Patriots Football Weekly, the official newspaper of the (duh) New England Patriots reports that receiver Randy Moss injured his left hamstring while attempt to run down an overthrown flea-flicker pass at practice on Wednesday

It gets Even Better, Its Bradys Fault according to Moss and the boston Globe.

At least Brady can overthrow, btw.

I saw a few Jest games last year. Three, I think. I kept thinking - Penny is going to get one of his receivers killed someday if he keeps throwing like that. I started feeling bad for Coles, who I think is a fantastic receiver. I'm not kidding.

(Editor's Note: There is nothing better than an honest woman...and Garb is great, too. ;))


Topic: Lady Luck Already Shining on the Patsies??

Originally Posted by shasta

Jet fans on the other hand prepare for the best and totally ignore the worst. That's why when the season rolls around and their team actually takes the field, they are almost always disapointed. The Jets will be lucky to win 8 games this year, most likely 1-4 after week 4.

Jet fans are most happy when the team sucks.

Pats fans know their team will do well and when they struggle they excuse it away instead of seeing the real reasons why they falter. Kinda like Yankee fans.

(Editor's Note: Jets fans one of the most pessimistic groups of people in the world - they never expect much, but hope is always there. Mets fans are just jealous of the varsity team in the Bronx.)

Attack the teams, not the posters. Have some thick skin when it comes to reading posts on here.

Nothing against anybody there running the site or moderating but damn someone has gotta tell soothsayer that Jets message boards actually CAN function without the like of them -it has gotten so old-I mean take a look-every thread is a disaster that gets hijacked-every single one-I ain't mentioning any names but you guys already KNOW which ones I'm talking about.

Why are people so outraged over Bonds, yet they never mention Luis Gonzalez or Pudge Rodriguez, a pair of obvious steroid users WHO LED THEIR TEAMS TO CHAMPIONSHIPS? What is worse: a tainted record or a tainted championship? I guess it's the former, and by a ridiculously wide margin.

I was in my room, watching the game, and after he hit the home run, I sat on my bed and clapped. Bravo, Barry.

Originally Posted by Scott Dierking

Maybe some people don't like how steroids have cast a shadow over all players and suspicion of any new streak or number.

Maybe some people yearn for sports when you worried about whether the baseball was juiced, and not the players. Or when opposite field homeruns by shortstops occurred once every five years, rather than once every five innings.

Maybe Bonds just represents everything that is wrong in a sport and becomes the poster boy for feeling duped.

I am not sure if that is "mock outrage" because I don't have the ability to gauge every fans individual temperament. I can just speak for myself and tell you I wish the man had not broken the record in the manner that he had to and cast a pall over the game and a cherished record.

As far as Babe Ruth, the man outhomered entire teams by himself, so I feel comfortable in saying that his measure was one of the all time greats, regardless of who was pitching.

I won't begrudge you your want to cheer the record. Please don't begrudge my want to not recognize it with gusto.

(Editor's Note: Two great posts from two great posters. I must admit, though, I'm now an A-Rod fan and hoping he can surpass Bonds in about 7 years or so.)

Mike Nugent kicks the bucket

By Tom Rock

It was so muggy today that I was able to take a handful of the air home with me as a souvenir from Jets Camp. It was humid, sticky, muddy and hot. Mangini loved it.

Not sure how many of you have seen this ad with Mike Nugent (it was linked on Glauber’s blog, so I’m guessing not many of you). I spoke with Mike about it today and he said while he’d never attempted to do this trick before. He practiced it a few times before the film crew showed up, they spent about two hours filming the segment, trying various patterns of knocking off the buckets, and getting things just right. And yes, to paraphrase Neil Best’s assessment of the Tom Glavine ratings which was itself a paraphrase of (ahem) something else from a “Seinfeld” episode: it was real, and it is pretty spectacular.

You’ve already read here that S Eric Smith was injured in practice this morning and CB Justin Miller sat out with his hammy again. Joe Kowalewski, who a week ago was the poster boy for the Mangini meritocracy of hard work and perseverance, sat out again and his hopes of making the roster are dwindling. Michael Haynes used his Jet Out Of Gail Free card today and missed practice thanks to some offseason award.

If you thought the Jets looked thin in the secondary on paper, you should have seen Justin McCareins absolutely torch Alphonso Hodge in a one-on-one goal line drill. It was quite the mis-match. But David Barrett, who is emerging as the Jets’ top coverage cornerback (or at least the top healthy coverage CB in camp, if that’s enough of a disclaimer), made a nice play on a pass to McCareins, getting his hands on a ball that Justin appeared to have in his grip and forcing it out.

Oh, this evening's practice was pushed back to 6:30 p.m.

And this week's winner:

Congrats to Jetcane on his winning post. There are two great things about this post - 1. it's spot on target for describing what the Jets need from Pennington to be successful and 2. it's funny. Unless Chad's new name is Steve, he's pretty much not ever going to have a bionic arm. He could, however, be a very effective QB with good receivers and a running game. It appears that the receivers and the running back are in place, the big question is the O-Line - will it get the job done. I love this post by JC - it spekas the truth and makes you laugh. Nice work, Jetcane. Wear the badge with pride this week:


Runner-up of the Week goes to joewilly - he may have won this thing if this was June with anyone of the lines he threw out there this week. Thanks for the laughs, jw.

That's all for this week, folks - maybe I'll see you at TC on Monday.

Y'all STAY cool -

Nah - no need for that, but thanks for the thought. :)

Thanks, GB.

All I can say is if the OL can get it together, the offense is going to be lot of fun to watch this season. YAC BEBE, YAC!

That's a ridiculous comment. Half the guys pitching in the majors today - white, black, green, whatever- wouldn't have cracked a line-up in Ruth's day.

Thanks Bill - enjoying your new gig?

I'd just like to point out that my one and only nomination this week ended up being the winner. Obviously me and Beans think alike, and if there was ever an heir to the POTW thread throne, it is surely myself lol

:D Poor guy thinks like a legume. :D

You're the man, brett. :D
