Burress impresses in Jets debut





More than two seasons removed from dominating the NFL gridiron, New York’s newly acquired wide out hasn’t missed a beat. Plaxico Burress burst onto the scene at the New Meadowlands Stadium-hauling in 6 receptions for 66 yards including a sprawling 26 yard touchdown grab in just two quarters of play.

The Jets, bottom dwellers in red zone offense in 2010, are delighted to add the massive end zone target into the fold this year. In 2007, Burress’ last full season, he collected a league high 12 touchdown catches, none grander than his end zone snag to give the Giants their third Lombardi Trophy in the franchise’s history.

The former Super Bowl hero is now on the rebound after his legal battles culminated in a fall from grace. Looking to re-establish his legacy, Burress is driven to help the “other” New York team reach t
heir first Super Bowl in over 40 years.

With the Jets franchise quarterback Mark Sanchez “coming of age” in the eyes of Rex Ryan, the Jets faithful are hopeful that the addition of Burress will bring home their hotly pursued championship ring.

Albeit, Burress’ debut came against the lowly Cincinnati Bengals, a squad expected to be the doormat in the AFC, the former Super Bowl champ appeared to regain the form and swagger that elevated him to the top of the sporting world.

Burress’ physical gifts were seldom doubted, but character issues and legal matters have plagued the talented wide outs storied career. In 2011, Burress aims to reclaim his spot amongst the NFL’s elite, while helping Gang Green find that extra “sizzle” to represent the AFC in February’s big game.

What a Steel!



Jerricho Cotchery, a fan favorite during his seven seasons in New York, is starting a new chapter. Cotchery, who earlier this month demanded his release has agreed to a one year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers. This follows defensive end Shaun Ellis spurning a contract offer from New York, ultimately signing with the reveled New England Patriots. The departure of Ellis and Cotchery signifies a changing of the guard for Gang Green. Cotchery, admired for his work ethic and integrity; while Ellis, a two time pro bowler and an imposing force along the defensive line, are passing the torch. New York’s leadership is strong with outspoken and charismatic linebacker Bart Scott rallying his squad for another title
run.

Cotchery’s exodus from New York was abrupt, as the Jets quickly set their sights on 37 year old Derrick Mason, leaving their long-time receiver out of the mix offensively. Questions abound whether New York’s geriatric receiving tandem of Plaxico Burress and Derrick Mason still have enough in the tank to get Gang Green over the hump. As a member of the Green and White, Cotchery hauled in 358 career receptions, but merely 41 catches in 2010 hampered by a herniated disk in his back and partial groin tear. Pittsburgh welcomes the addition of Cotchery as news surfaced that their top receiving target Hines Ward was arrested on drunken driving charges earlier this summer. If New York is hopeful of realizing their title hopes they may very well see a familiar face in Cotchery and a familiar foe in the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Cotchery will not play in the Steelers preseason opener Friday night, against Washington, but will join the team for training camp this Sunday.

Rex: Redskins will win the NFC East


Another day, another prediction from Rex.

However, this time the Jets bombastic coach was not the one making title proclamations. In a recent interview Washington Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman declared his team as the sleeper in the loaded NFC EAST, putting his divisional foes on notice.

"Nobody's talking about us,” remarked Grossman. “That's right where we want to be. You look at us from top to bottom out here, there's a bunch of great players. And we don't need people saying we're the best right now, but when it's all said and done, I really feel like this team's gonna win the East."

Grossman is expected to be the opening day starter when the Redskins play host to the New York Giants Sunday, September 11th at 4:15PM although he is still in competition with fellow signal caller John Beck. The Redskins have reshaped their roster dumping Albert Hanesworth, C
linton Portis and Donovan McNabb, while welcoming the additions of Barry Cofield, Donte’ Stallworth and Tim Hightower.

Although a far cry from the division favorite, the Redskins are hoping that the infusion of new blood on their roster will revive a much beleaguered franchise that has failed to capture a division title since the NFL’s realignment in 2002. Media, fans and players across the league are making a mockery of the quarterback's recent comments, but his confident remarks may serve to wake up a club that slept walk through the 2010 season.

METS SNAP STREAK- DU-DA-DU-DA





195 consecutive losses. That stat haunted the Mets over the past four seasons. That record was intact, until of course this week.

Before Monday night, the Amazins' lost 195 straight contest in which they trailed by two or more runs in the eighth inning or later.

That skid was snapped, courtesy of Lucas Duda's two run single plating the winning run in the form of a giddy David Wright. The Mets trailed the Padres 9-4 entering the eighth inning, storming back with two runs in the bottom of the 8th and capping the improbable comeback with three more runs in the ninth off former Met Heath Bell.

Rookie Lucas Duda finally said enough was enough. His two run single in the 9th inning of Monday's game, snapped the streak and provided the Citi-field faithful with walk-off fire works.

On Tuesday evening, Mets fans enjoyed an encore performance as the Amazins' rallied back from 4-2 down in the 8th inning to capture a second consecutive dramatic victory. Despite, missing sparkplug Jose Reyes, as he spends his second stint on the disabled list with a sore hamstring, first baseman Lucas Duda ignited comebacks for New York on back to back nights.

The Mets look to capture their third straight win, Wednesday, August 10th at 7:10PM as San Diego throws out Adam Harang opposing Mets knuckleballer R.A. Dickey.

So it Ain’t So: Shaun Ellis Signs with Patriots




The longest tenured Jet has found a landing spot and it’s not with Gang Green.

Shaun Ellis, entering his eleventh season in the league, (all with New York) turned down a one year contract offer from the New York Jets at the veteran’s minimum, instead electing to join the reveled New England Patriots for a whopping 4.5 million for 2011. As the longest tenured Jet, Ellis amassed 552 tackles, 72.5 sacks, 13 forced fumbles and an interception with the green and white. As the newest member of the squad from Foxboro, Ellis will play alongside Albert Hanesworth and Vince Wilfork in what is shaping up to be a menacing defensive front. The Jets loss is the Patriots gain as New England bolsters a pass rush that was non-existent for much of their 2010 campaign.

Jets coach Rex Ryan praised Ellis for his contributions while with Gang Green, but refused to wish the defensive lineman well with New York’s arch rivals. Bill Belichick was impressed with Ellis’ performance in last year’s divisional playoff round, a 28-21 Jets victory. Ellis collected five tackles, sacking quarterback Tom Brady twice en route to New York’s most emotional win of the season. The Jets faithful are likening Ellis’ departure from New York to New England to Johnny Damon’s decision to leave the Red Sox and sign on with the Yankees. As if this bitter rivalry could be any nastier, Ellis’ decision certainly adds more fuel to the fire. New York will look for major contributions from Muhammed Wilkerson, whom they selected 30th overall in the 2011 draft.

Ellis leaves big shoes to fill, and with a shortened offseason, Wilkerson will have to hit the ground running. A crash course in Rex Ryan’s exotic defensive schemes will help acclimate the rookie lineman, but General Manager Mike Tannenbaum will have to be active in finding depth at the defensive end
position. Meanwhile, Ellis will likely return to the New Meadowlands Stadium to a chorus of boos, as his former stomping grounds has transformed into enemy territory.

The Jets play host to the New England Patriots Week Five, Sunday October 5th, at 4:15PM.
