We survived farve watch 2010

As most people know Brett Farve has decided to come and play football again. He is going into his 20th season. He holds all types of football records good and bad. I was talking about this awhile back. I respect him for the player he is. He has the most passing yards the most touchdown passes and the most starts of anyone to play the game. He played the day after his father died and almost threw for 300 yards in a single half. He has played through all kinds of injuries and is said to be a great leader in the locker room. If anyone does not respect that then you are not human. I dont respect him though as a person. Every year he does the same thing over and over. It goes from he is done to he may come back. Look why not just say, "im not sure what I will do just yet i will let you all know when i know. Instead he has this media circus following him and it gets annoying after awhile. Im glad he is back though and it will do the game very good to have him back. The media circus around him needs to be controlled though.

NEW Meadowlands Stadium

Last night was the first game to be played in the New Meadowlands Stadium. It was the Jets vs the Giants. Jets ultimately lost 31-16 but it was our back ups who lost the game. The defense was steller as usual and was pretty much lights out all night. Not much you can say except some of those kids wont make it past this week. This isnt about the game itself because well it was pre season and all the game was for was to see who would make the cut. This is going to be about the stadium. The old Giants Stadium is completely gone. It wasnt that long ago football was being played. The stadium is GONE!!! Where it once stood is now parking. Incredible what technology can do. I read an article on the 12th about why they closed Giants stadium... the article is right here. Go ahead and read it then come back. Oh good you came back. His first point was that the escalators and double helix stairs were gone. I loved the new lay out actually. We went up and down an escalator for our seats. The entrances also have ramps going down the sides of the Stadium for what I believe is an easy exit. It was honestly not that bad when we were leaving. His next big problem was the bathrooms and that they werent user friendly. The mens room was great actually. You walk in and all the urinals are right when you go in. They had alot of them and they were the ones where they have no water. Then you keep moving through to the other side where they have sinks. This place has a flow and makes it so people arent going out the entrance and in on the exit. Much better and good job workers. Lastly the concourse was MUCH MUCH bigger. I was able to walk around and not feel like I was being crushed into a ball. They made it much bigger and much more roomy. The guy who wrote the article compares it to the new Yankee stadium which is like a Mall get over yourself. On another note... the man who tried to push off firemen ed during the jets chant. You got so lucky we didnt riot. I understand people may hate the chant and all. Its a jets home game though and yeah he was probably drunk but it gives you no right to hit him. What if he fell and cracked his head open like Eli?? I lost alot of respect for giants fans after last night. I came home to find that everyone was talking trash after a pre season win. I would like to remind you it doesnt mean anything to the regular season. The Raiders one year went a perfect 4-0 in the pre season. That regular season they went 4-12. Just something to think about.

Jets Giants game

As most football fans know the Giants and Jets shared a stadium. Shockingly this stadium was called Giants Stadium.... shocking I know I was too. Giants were the landlord and the Jets were tenants in a small house and had to pay to be there for years. This year though they both have equal rights in the New Meadowlands Stadium. Jets and Giants got married and are sharing the landlords house now. The arguments have now come up as to what the stadium is going to be called. Last time i checked the stadium had NO NAME!!!! It is being called the New Meadowlands Stadium just until they get a top sponsor. They came close to this German bank but it turns out they were affiliated with Nazi Germany back in WWII and many local Jewish groups were against it so they ended talks with the bank. The stadium is NOT and i repeat NOT Giants stadium. Giant fans can keep saying that is the name but show me where it says it on the new stadium and I will believe you on that. Today in the Asbury Park Press had an article asking about why they closed down the old stadium. How about it was OLD and that both teams wanted a new stadium??? The article talks about how the stadium has no escalators and the concourses are too small for this guy. My mom and dad both went to check out our new seats and mom was telling me that the guy was completely wrong. This guy was just annoyed cause his precious GMEN lost there home. The Giants still have an amazing NEW home I don't get why you are so mad. There was an article on ESPN talking about how this Giants Rookie was saying he wants to kick the Jets ass and how we use the Giants field and Stadium. As stated before the two teams now have EQUAL share in the stadium and is split 50/50. Its comments like this that get my blood boiling. At least investigate before you talk this way you don't look like a moron. They article talks a lot about how the Giants haven't watched the show Hard Knocks. The show follows the Jets through training camp and how they run. Most people probably wont watch it because they either don't like football or don't like the Jets. I'm sorry but when does watching a show matter in a game? The game on Monday is a PRESEASON GAME!!!!! There is nothing at stake except for "bragging rights" I use quotation marks because its preseason and nothing is proven in the preseason.

New York State of mind?

In case anyone hasn't heard. The New York Knicks have tried to bring back Isiah Thomas as there General Manager. The thing is everyone in the organization doesn't like him and banned that hiring. So he is going to be a consultant for the team but there is an issue with that. The NBA doesn't allow teams to talk to college kids until they commit to the draft. Thomas is the head basketball coach down in FIU. Does anyone sense a problem here? Look I will say it that I have no interest in basketball what so ever. I think the NBA is boring and not fun to watch. The Knicks are so in the dumps its not even funny. There owner just wants to help his friends without giving a thought to having actual basketball knowledge. This is the guy who wasted the teams money putting them in a financial hole. He was charged in a sexual harassment lawsuit by a member of the MSG staff. So why not bring him back? I hear he tells funny knock knock jokes.

The New York Jets have been a lot of peoples super bowl picks before the year has started. The star of the defense is not with the team though. Darrelle Revis has been holding out to get a larger contract and the Jets wont give it to him. Just stop being a baby and just ask for 7-8 million then talk to the team about a new contract and work something out. The owner has now said he doesn't think Revis will be with the team. Good thing they picked up Cromartie and drafted a new cornerback because if this does happen our defense will have a major hole in it.

The New York Mets have what I think is one of the top 5 offensive batting line ups in the league. Yet this team is a game under .500 at 55-56? The problem lies in the coaching staff. Manuel has been there and yet shows no emotion when something bad happens. Its like having Eric Mangini back with the Jets. Shakes his head and will have it worked out in practice. Look the entire coaching staff has to go plain and simple. You have one of the top 3 pay rolls in the league and yet your fighting to just be over .500.

We also have the New York Giants. They wear the color blue and are coming off a majorly disappointing season. They have a new defensive coordinator but I have been hearing positives from camp.
