Join Daniel Feuerstein & Rick Laughland as they recap the first loss in the Todd Bowles era as the Jets fall to the Eagles 24-17

Jets suffer first loss of the season in Bowles era 24-17 to Eagles

It came sooner rather than later. After a solid start to the season and earning two straight wins, the Jets sadly finished off September by falling to the Philadelphia Eagles by a final of 24-17 and their record going to 2-1. But while the first half wasn’t anything to write home about, they did find a way to get back in the game and tried to play catch up.

But at the end of the day missed tackles and no running game along with some mental errors caused the Jets to lose a chance to be one of a few sides that were unbeaten to start the season. It was the Darren Sproles & Ryan Matthews show as they ran rough shot all over the Jets.

While Sproles stats wise wasn’t were it should be in this type of win for the desperate Philadelphia Eagles, his 89yd punt return for a touchdown was a spectacular run that made the Jets miss taking him down, but for Ryan Matthews he was unstoppable carrying the ball 25 times for 108yds.

In the throwing department the Eagles were able to get some fantastic plays down by Jordan Matthews and Zach Ertz as they helped Sam Bradford look solid by making their plays. The Jets on both sides of the ball in the first half looked sluggish and unsure of themselves trying to make plays and give the Eagles credit on defense when they stopped Bilal Powell and Zac Stacy on the run game.

There were some solid throws to Brandon Marshall and out of a poor day he did receive the ball 10 times for 104 yds and a touchdown that gave the team life when he grabbed it before halftime on a 16yd throw by Fitzpatrick. But of course the big head scratcher of a play was in the 2nd quarter on the Jets 7th possession of the first half.

After starting on their own 28yd line Fitzpatrick finds Marshall on a 15yd catch and as he was getting tackled down, Marshall made a surprising and dumb move as he tried to lateral the ball to a team mate that wasn’t there. The ball thrown at an Eagles facemask and recovered by the Eagles even though the left elbow was down on the turf while the ball was still in Marshall’s right hand wasn’t enough to overturn the review.

But after all the positives that happened in the first two weeks, it all came crashing down in this loss to the Eagles and now in the last ten meetings, the New York Jets still haven’t found a way to defeat Philadelphia’s NFL side. But sooner than later you had to expect a loss coming and with a long road trip to London, England to face the Miami Dolphins at Wembley Stadium this should be a good time for the team to sit back, relax and get ready for their first AFC East Divisional Game of the season.

2015 Jets Season Week 3 Podcast Preview Show Vs. Philadelphia


Join Daniel Feuerstein & Rick Laughland as they Preview the Week 3 Matchup for the New York Jets as they host the Philadelphia Eagles. Sadly Jimmy Kempsky of the Philly Voice didn’t join us as he decided not to care about our show.

Orlando City Magic takes down Red Bulls

When you have a true expansion side coming to play a veteran MLS side all season long, normally you can take them out and earn the full three points with ease. If you mean that it's easy to defeat NYCFC, then you are correct. 

This time though Orlando City who is also an expansion side, but can play rough and tough can find holes in your back line and take advantage of it. That's what happened tonight as the Red Bulls got caught on the counter many times and also gave a self inflicted wound with their first own goal of the season as they lost 5-2. 
The Canadian International Cyle Larin converted a hat trick off the Red Bulls as he scored a header from a Kaka corner and two more off two counters that beat Luis Robles cleanly and showed why he is the #1 pick in this years past Super Draft coming from UConn.

The other two goals for Larin as he scored in the 43rd minute on a great cross by Luis Rivas from the far side of the field and when it came to Larin's feet, he blasted a hard shot past Robles to regain the one goal lead and in the second half after Lloyd Sam pulled a second goal back it was another counter by Orlando that put Larin in great position to convert his 2nd hat trick against NYC area MLS sides. 

He took down NYCFC and now the Red Bulls as the Canadian International has found ways to beat these sides and probably feels right at home as he attended college in Connecticut. But as the backline of the Red Bulls was getting shredded, you saw Matt Miazga get a yellow card early in the game for a tough challenge and then a tug on the shirt during the back end of the match where he will miss games not just for Olympic Qualifying, but also a two match ban for yellow card accumulation as well as getting sent off in the 77th minute. 

But Miazga will not be the only one missing games as Jesse Marsch was sent off in the 57th minute for arguing calls by Referee Jorge Gonzalez. To be honest it didn't look like the conversation was escalated at all, but Gonzalez had enough and decided to give Marsch his walking papers. If it was like the last time Marsch was sent off in a match I would assume that Denis Hamlet will take over the coaching duties for their next home game against the Columbus Crew. 

"Yes. They did well to get out of tight spots in different moments, credit to them I thought Orlando played very well tonight." Said Marsch, "We were a little bit late shifting and defending the ball on them and we might have over commit. On a night like this everything that could go wrong did. I promise you this, this team won't be fazed by this. It's a kick in the teeth and we will regroup." 

The way that this side has regrouped after bad losses, I believe that Marsch will have them ready to go and with the Columbus Crew coming to town next week, the Red Bulls should be ready to take on that challenge and continuing to try to remain at the top of the east.

The Jets Podcast Week 2 Review


Join Daniel Feuerstein & Rick Laughland as they review the New York Jets 20-7 Victory at the Indianapolis Colts on Monday Night Football

Jets Defense forces turnovers again in 20-7 win at Colts

It was a great win against the Browns to start the Todd Bowles era for the New York Jets and if what you saw from the defense and some of the great plays on offense got you giddy, well friends you got a second dose of what this Jets defense can do with a healthy & potent front seven and secondary that will force the opposition’s top Quarterbacks into tough plays and tons of turnovers.

But when you thought there was going to be a tougher test to face Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium, once again Todd Bowles defense forced Luck to make silly mistakes, got stripped and throwing three interceptions that once again the Jets earned five interceptions that gave the team a total of ten in two games.

But the game changer was in the 3rd quarter as Frank Gore who is playing in his first season with the Colts gets a handoff from Luck and as he cuts to his left, all of a sudden fumbles the ball and lost it at the goal line where Darrell Revis recovered it for a touchback at the goal line. Revis who has been rejuvenated since coming back to the Jets has intercepted one ball and picked up three fumble recoveries.

The offense has done a good job in this game even though they only scored twenty points but stayed ahead as the Colts never scored in the first three quarters of this game. A nice six yard throw to Eric Decker inside the end zone to open the scoring after a Calvin Pryor interception, but once again the big beast on the outside is Wide Receiver Brandon Marshall.

Marshall forces the corners to hold him and gets the flag for either holding or pass interference & that drove Vonte Davis crazy as he just couldn’t cover him all night long. Marshall has been the #1 Wide Receiver the Jets have sorely needed since Plaxico Burress was on the team and when the Jets made that 4th quarter drive that Marshall got held, made a great catch and continued to fight and claw his way into the end zone near the far side pylon. You see no quit at all trying to get the Jets back that ten point lead.

While the running game wasn’t good enough in this game, that’s o.k. because the other attacks were better and the passing game was solid. But now it’s a short week heading back home to face the Philadelphia Eagles and possibly taking on Mark Sanchez, but we shall see what Chip Kelly has in mind as the Eagles are starting the season at 0-2 and that’s going to be a dangerous situation.

Red Bulls Rebound in Portland, Clinch a playoff spot

Yes the road game at Gillette Stadium was a letdown; yes the loss to the New England Revolution in mid-week action didn’t look good at all. Yet once again when this club takes a bad game it usually follows up with a solid performance in the next match and this time it was a cross country trip to the Pacific Northwest once again to Portland, Oregon to face the Timbers.
This Timbers team is looking very sad and embarrassing as they showed no fight and no punch after the first twenty minutes of the match and when the Red Bulls opened the scoring, it was an amazing amount of space that was given to Felipe as he smacked home his third of the season in the 42nd minute.
After the Timbers lost the ball by the bench side it was Jesse Marsch who grabbed it and bounced it back quickly to Kemar Lawrence who threw it back into play towards Felipe. Amazingly Will Johnson & Diego Chara gave him so much room that Felipe just decided to take a long distance shot and splashes inside the upper far 90 for a spectacular goal and a late first half lead.
But in first half stoppage time, the French central defender Damien Perrinelle was able to double the lead quickly and throw more doubt into the Timbers defense and question their passion. Sal Zizzo along the far side touchline crossed a beautiful ball that Perrinelle gets his head onto. And just a soft looping ball goes over the head of Timbers keeper Adam Larsen Kwarasey and gently lands over the goal line and inside the back of the net.
That was all the Red Bulls needed to take back to the east coast the full three points and become the first side in the league to clinch a playoff spot & their first win in three tries at Providence Park. Let’s also not forget that it puts the club back to the top of the Eastern Conference and have six matches remaining, along with two in hand on DC United, New England & Columbus. This was a fantastic performance against the Timbers as they were missing Captain Dax McCarty and Connor Lade on suspensions due to yellow card accumulation when they were booked against the Revolution four days ago.
Both Lloyd Sam & Mike Grella got a rest to start this match and in their places was Gonzalo Veron & Shaun Wright-Phillips who has finally started with his brother Bradley on the field for the first time in MLS and since they were with Manchester City of the English Premier League in two seasons from 2004 till 2006.
But the fun fact right now is that there are two races the Red Bulls are involved with and while Jesse Marsch won’t say it, I will. The Shield race with the Vancouver Whitecaps is on and they are threatening Carl Robinson’s side for that regular season title. If they don’t win the shield this season then finish off the regular season with a flourish by winning the Eastern Conference, at least it gives them an opening to return to the CONCACAF Champions League next season.
But once again we are seeing Jesse Marsch’s tactics working to perfection and the way this club has been performing match in & match out they are now posing as a real threat for the postseason and maybe the pundits might start looking at the team in Red & White as a serious contender.

Join Daniel Feuerstein & Rick Laughland as they review the first win of the Todd Bowles era as the New York Jets Defeat the Cleveland Browns 31-10

Jets 2nd Half dominates Browns Wins 31-10


It was a great scene at Met Life Stadium seeing all the Jets fans filling up the place and excited for the new season with a brand new coaching staff and seeing new & old faces coming to the Jets and starting off the season at home against the Cleveland Browns.

It was a slow start to the game on both sides of the ball for the Jets but after a 54yd throw from Johnny Manziel that landed in the hands of Travis Benjamin, Todd Bowles side finally found their rhythm as Ryan Fitzpatrick commanded the pocket and was able to throw two touchdowns to Eric Decker for 15 yards and Brandon Marshall on a fade towards the far side of the end zone for a yard.

But the best moments of the game by the Jets came on Defense along with a fantastic play by Brandon Marshall that kept hope of tying the score. First Marshall’s spectacular play as the Jets are driving down the field trailing by a touchdown. After converting on a 43yd catch and run by Chris Owusu, Fitzpatrick threw the ball towards Marshall but didn’t see Tashaun Gipson as it was intercepted.

But Marshall with some quick thinking tried to stop Gipson from making a big play found a way to strip the ball out of Gipson’s hands as he was tackling him down and Marshall ran it to the Cleveland 9yd line for a new set of downs. Gipson thought he was already down when the ball was stripped, but on replay Marshall stripped him clean and the Jets fans started to chant Marshall’s name.

On Defense the Jets found ways to stop Starting Quarterback Josh McCown and Manziel by knocking the ball out of their hands or forcing a fumble and recovering it. 1st Possession of the game McCown on the Jets 14yd line tried to take it himself and dive into the end zone, but before he got to the goal line, he was hit in mid-air by Calvin Pryor and lost the ball on the Jets 1yd line. The ball bounced inside the end zone and was recovered by Antonio Cromartie In the 3rd Quarter Marcus Williams picked off a pass for former Dolphins Wide Receiver Brian Hartline and returned it for 18yds, Then Manziel was sacked and got stripped as Darrell Revis recovered the ball, then Trevor Riley sacked Manziel as he forced a fumble that was recovered by Quinton Coples.

21 Points came from the five turnovers the Jets forced on the Browns and they come out with the first win of the Todd Bowles era. The Jets looking like a team that is playing hard and fast on both sides of the ball & so far Fitzpatrick looks solid after the first game of the season. The offensive line made sure they kept him upright and never got touched to get sacked, also Brandon Marshall is already a folk hero as Jets fans chanted his name making spectacular catches as he caught the ball six times for 62 yds.

But with a great win comes a price as Antonio Cromartie might have a serious left knee injury as he was helped off the field and holding it, also 3rd round rookie Lorenzo Mauldin left the game with a concussion after making a sack on Manziel in the 3rd Quarter. But as we said during the offseason that Mike MacCagnan’s job was a success and now we needed to see what Bowles can do, so far it’s been a good start and lets head to Week 2 at Indianapolis

Red Bulls comeback down two with Three Unanswerred

It looked like the jinx from Toyota Park was coming over to Red Bull Arena as the Chicago Fire who have something to play for and trying to act as spoiler on the Red Bulls plans almost came to fruition. But while it looked like a solid start to the match for the home side, the Fire found ways to make the evening look scary and there was some worry right away.

Damien Perrinelle was marking Kennedy Igboananike along the near side of the New York area and when the move was made, Perrinelle fouled his man that got Armando Villarreal to blow his whistle to point to the spot & in the 14th minute Jeff Larentowicz converted the spot kick. On replay the foul happened when Igboananike's right foot was touching the line and Perrinelle just clipped him, all keepers have said and according to the laws of the game the line of the area is apart of it and can be blown for a spot kick.

Then Chicago took advantage of the Red Bulls in the 26th minute as David Accam made a nice cut on Connor Lade going down the near side and when he got inside the area, Luis Robles tried to cut down the angle and slide tackle the ball away but unfortunately Accam made another cut and gently tapped it in.

This whole setup came after the Red Bulls tried to deliver a corner on the near side of the field and when the Fire stopped the chance, it was some great awareness from Michael Stephens to clear the ball down the field and Accam just made a brilliant move to attack the goal. But that's where the Red Bulls had enough and quickly got on the score sheet.

Two minutes later the Red Bulls would start the comeback in grand fashion as Felipe gave a long ball from the midfield circle to Sacha Kljestan and quickly found Bradley Wright-Phillips who got into space and toe poked it past Sean Johnson. Just like that the home side was back and brought back their belief.

They would make it two all in the 38th minute as Mike Grella gets a nice pass from Lloyd Sam and quickly got a handle on it, with a nice turnaround shot that beats Johnson inside the far post to level the score. Dax McCarty was in the middle of the field and crossed the ball to Sam who attacked down the far side and when he got close to the byline, that's when he made that nice pass to Grella and the finish. 

All throughout the match the Red Bulls were trying to find a way to get that third, they needed to get that big go ahead goal so they can move ahead of DC United for first in the east and got it when Lloyd Sam was taken down in the area. Stepping up to the spot was Kljestan and with all the pressure on him to take the lead, he saw Johnson dive to his left early & that allowed Kljestan to go the other direction and convert in the 71st minute.

"That's an important moment when (Bradley's Goal) you go down two that you need to get one right back." Said Jesse Marsch, "Because the game is still up for grabs, but we've talked about no matter what situation we are in as a team, we continue to have belief on the field and we just continue to push. We feel we can emerge and get the win, it's not the way we planned it but the response was fantastic."

So at the moment the Red Bulls have leapt over DC United and taken over the top spot in the Eastern Conference with a one point lead & they will wait to see what DC does this weekend with a match at the Colorado Rapids, but still with three in hand after the weekend the Red Bulls will make a trip to New England and take on the Revolution.

Red Bulls looking to right things against Chicago

So what happened the last time the Red Bulls faced the Chicago Fire on the road? They earned an early penalty that was converted, then allowed two goals and trailed at halftime. Scored a fantastic training field goal that was later deemed to be illegal by PRO during the MSG Broadcast, but not on the CSN Chicago Broadcast. Then once again fell asleep on a counter that lead to a game winner for the Fire.

But after a masterful performance in their next game to demolish DC United and celebrating Hate DC Week with a flourish, the Red Bulls now coming back from the international break and taking on a Chicago Fire side that just got steamrolled by a Didier Drogba hat trick and getting edged by the Montreal Impact. 

Once again when you look at the standings in the Eastern Conference the Fire are in dead last with 27 points and to be honest they are limping to Red Bull Arena where the home side is 8-2-2 with 26 points in the league this season and as always is a fortress for the home side where as Toyota Park has kryptonite buried somewhere under the field.

But what does the team need to do to play better against the Fire when they arrive this Friday Night? "We need to play better the last time we played against them" Said Dax McCarty, "It was a really frustrating performance, but came out better against DC and we need to take that performance from DC into this one against Chicago." 

"They are a good team and played well on the road at Montreal and at Orlando, but didn't get rewarded for that so they are going to be hungry and want to steal points, but we are strong at home and very solid at home. We need to be good with the ball and better than we were the last game."

As we remember what happened on that second Red Bulls goal that came from the training ground between Lloyd Sam & Sacha Kljestan, there was a bit of a question on how many touches Lloyd made to make that play legal or illegal, because of the referee instructing him to place the ball better, was there a whistle being heard? 
"I think I was making sure that the ball was placed properly first and then I shouldn't have touched as many times as I have, but it did go in and we lost the game, all I was trying to do was to be clear that it's been touched."
But the players are ready to go and they are excited to get back out on the field, but Jesse Marsch was all business today at training as he knows full well what they need to do to be aware of the speedy attackers the Fire have like Kennedy Igboananike. "One of the things we did to ourselves (at Chicago) was putting ourselves into bad positions, by giving balls away to their explosive attackers and putting them on the move." Said Marsch, "So we have to do a better job not giving up balls in bad positions and do a better job of recovering and delaying that we understand that is what they are good at."

So the Red Bulls have a big opportunity to try and get three points once again and let's also not forget that there is a bigger prize to this match and of course it would mean leapfrogging over DC United for 1st place in the Eastern Conference. At the moment DC United is on a slump in league play while they have two group games remaining in their CONCACAF Champions League campaign, but once again the Red Bulls have an excellent chance to take the top of the Eastern Conference mountain if they execute their game plan.
