Daniel Marcus: Staff Writer

534364_3655211652293_473706022_nDan has been covering, writing, and otherwise complaining about the Jets for a number of years now. He comes to us from SNY’s The Jets Blog, where he was acknowledged by New York Newsday for his cynicism and hatred for the New York Giants and was  also named a finalist for CBS New York’s Most Valuable Blogger of 2011, a contest which to his understanding on longer exists. Dan has been in around the Jets beat and once famously asked Rex Ryan whether or not the team seeing his cameo in an Adam Sandler movie was considered to be an “Organized Team Activity.” In addition to writing about and covering the Jets, Dan also covers the Yankees for SNY.tv’s “It’s About The Money Stupid.” On game days you will find him on the verge of an aneurysm or with his head in his hands in section 337, which has become something of a tradition. He will assist with our Jets coverage throughout 2014.

  2. You may not have asked me, but how about this for the Revis situation. Give Darrell ‘franchise tag equevelant’ money for this year. Perhaps $9M to about $12M per year. Tie a huge signing bonus to NEXT years contract. In 2014, the Jets will have cap space and we will all know the condition of he knee. Then, not now, he MAY be worth the $15M per he wants. Then we will all know the status of his rehab. So, how about it? Will it fly? Anything missing????

  3. your forgetting why would Revis extend for one year when he could be a FA next summer! he would probably say screw that play out this season and then leave for highest bidding team! He dose not care about wining a Superbowl he Just wants $$$$… just my opinion.

  5. The guys at TOJ are truly making in-roads in “civilizing” coverage of the Jets, because we all know the mainstream media’s portrayal of what actually goes on with the Jets — both on the field and off — often lacks even a hint of civility. The future of sports journalism is going away from the mainstream and into a new stream, where the fan is wielding the power. This won’t happen overnight, but with fan blog sites being granted more access to fields and locker rooms it’s just a matter of time before the playing field is leveled somewhat. It’s still years away from becoming common, but sites like TOJ have the right idea. Trust me.
