102-Day New York Jets Warning – Francesa Vs. The Jets

Counting down the days until the Jets season starts with reasons to be excited for 2013…the entertainment of Mike Francesa vs. The Jets

Here at Turn On The Jets, we decided to take a page out of Robert Mays book over at Grantland (a polite way of saying rip his article idea off) by counting down the 115 days until the New York Jets kick off, with a daily reason to get excited about their return. Mays has the whole NFL to work with, we only have the Goddamn Jets…now there is a challenge, step your game up Mays!

We continue today with the entertainment of Mike Francesa vs. The Jets (Note, you can track this entire series right here)

At this point it isn’t worth rehashing the entire history of Mike Francesa’s angst towards Rex Ryan and the New York Jets. My timeline is frequently filled with people complaining about Francesa’s attitude toward the team and my response is why even get mad about it? Francesa is a caricature at this point. As a Jets fan, you should listen to him if you want a cheap laugh. Get a kick of out of the trolling and attempts to rile up the fanbase and skip on by using your radio dial. The team could win the Super Bowl and the next day he’d open with talking about JOBER and GEORGIA RODDY. So the best thing to do is sit back and laugh (and make sure to follow this on Twitter.)



DAILY NEWS STORY PITCH OF THE DAY – 675 words on the selfishness of Chris Ivory keeping dreadlocks when he could be tackled from behind by them. The hair choice is a direct reflection of the “Me. Me. And more me attitude perpetuated by Rex Ryan” penned Gary Myers, Hall of Fame Voter.

RANDOM JET OF THE DAY – BJ ASKEW! – Played four seasons for the Jets from 2003-2006, never scoring a touchdown or having a play for over 14 yards from scrimmage. The Jets spent a 3rd round pick on him. 3rd! Terry Bradway at it again.

    I love Francessa! He is as enraged as I am. Now, I know his jive comes as a Giant’s Fan, while my anger comes as a Jets/Titans fan.

    I drove around in my car so I could listen to the Idzik intro. I had the same reaction. Woody deferring to Rex. Idzik offering little but BS. Rex talking about his rebirth. Was there any reason, hearing this to think there would be progress – never mind the leak about Revis being shopped which coincided with the event!

    Regarding Rex as an object of scorn: OK keep Rex on to warm up the crowd, probably not even that. His mouth gets the team in trouble. Namath has it pegged. Worse yet Rex is not big enough for the job of Head Coach. He has a reputation as a motivator…baloney, they don’t look motivated to me. What I see is injured, fat and slow…and going down on the first hit! Imagine being the new DC and hearing that Rex is going to be hands on – running the show!!!???

    We know why Rex is there – the same reason Tebow was brought in last year.

    As far as Francesor falling asleep during a discussion of the Yankees….Same happens with me every time.
