Hopefully we can keep it together for our game against the Vikings on Sunday.

The Jets could actually pull off a victory in the AFC East.
The good news for the Jets is that they play a relatively "soft" schedule to close things out with home games against
If you’re a betting man, then I’d put my money on the Jets. I’ve heard they’re getting pretty good odds too.

Rookie coach Eric Mangini has turned the New York Jets into playoff contenders in his first year in charge. With Mangini in charge the Jets are 2 games behind the first place New England Patriots.
This has definitely been a rebuilding year for the Jets, who ended the 2005 season with 4 wins and 12 loses. The current standing of 6 wins and 5 loses is already an improvement from the previous season.
To make the odds even better, the Jets will not play a team that currently has a winning record in their last five games before the playoffs.
Let’s go Jets!

I'd like to have seen one more miracle, though: Pats' coach Bill Belichick smiling while he's shaking Eric Mangini's hand. Belichick ought to be proud of having taught Mangini well, not hurt that he dared to make a career move into a head coaching job of his own.

Curtis Martin has announced that he is ending this season with the New York Jets, upon the recommendation of his physicians. Actually, the doctors who operated on his knee almost a year ago advised him that playing was jeopardizing his future life functioning, even such things as walking normally. Still, Curtis Martin, who has endured nine years of playing through the pain was not the type to give up without one last try. The Jets, who have benefited so much from the amazing #28, left the final decision to Martin.
If this turns out to be his actual retirement from professional football, Curtis Martin leaves as the 4th leading rusher in NFL history.

Even though our Jets led the whole game against the Detroit Lions Sunday, the Lions came within a touchdown with only to go. We had to hang on by our fingernails, and Coach Eric Mangini stated, “I didn’t take a deep breath until we got that last first down.” Maybe he was recalling that the last three game the Jets have won have all come down to the outcome of the opponents’ final possession.
Maybe our upcoming game with the 1-and-5 Cleveland Browns doesn’t need to be such a cliffhanger!

So nice to be back after the unplanned interruptions of summer. But yesterday I thought we New York Jets fans would have something huge to cheer about. Well, let’s cheer about some smaller but significant things – we held our own against the Patriots, even jumped ahead with that 103-yard kick return of Justin Miller’s. That should have knocked the wind out of their sails, but there’s a reason why
We get another crack at the Pats up in Gillette Stadium November 12th. Sure would like tickets to see another really close game with the win going to the visitors!

Maybe the New York Jets’ brand new coach, 35-year-old Eric Mangini, is the youngest in the NFL, but look who he had for a teacher: the New England Patriots’ Bill Bedichick. Too bad we'll be going up against the Patriots -- twice.
The Pats are the team to beat in the AFC East. Well, all right, we need to beat the Dolphins and the Bills as well. Wouldn't it be cool if Mangini could beat his former mentor at his own game? It can't hurt (us) that the Pats have lost some key components, the most noticeable being Adam Vinatieri.
Meanwhile, we have some guys coming back that I love to watch: Jonathon Vilma, Shaun Ellis, and Chad Pennington. A couple more reasons I want Jets tickets: to see what D’Brickashaw Ferguson and Trey Teague can do when they join Brandon Moore on our offensive line.

I don’t have much New York Jets news to report on. I can say that I am proud of our players for staying out of trouble in the off-season. There have been quite a few stories this summer of NFL players getting arrested for illegal activities. The Seahawks’ Wayne Hunter got arrested in connection with a bar brawl, Albert Haynesworth of the Tennessee Titans for reckless endangerment and Browns running back Reuben Droughns is charged in a domestic dispute. It is embarrassing to see players at this level acting like thuggish children. It’s hard to tell anymore what I can let my kids watch on TV because everywhere I turn there is another athlete going to jail for cocaine trafficking and the like.
It is funny how we hoist them up as heroes during the season and during their off time they go and act like common criminals. Then they get slapped on the wrists for transgressions that would land a regular man in prison. Where are their morals? And who is accountable?

Cedric Houston of the New York Jets was involved in a car accident last Friday. The running back was mildly injured but released from the hospital the same night as his wounds were not life-threatening.

Victor Green has signed with the New York Jets again so he retires as a Jet. He spent eight years with the Jets and was a great player all around. I think it is pretty cool that the Jets let him sign on. The Dallas Cowboys did it for Emmitt Smith after all.
