New York Jets Media Sadness: Gary Myers Edition… Again

Mike Donnelly breaks down Gary Myers’s most recent column in the Daily News about the New York Jets…

As you may or may not know, we are not big fans of the coverage the New York Jets receive from the media in this town. Now, sure, there are some excellent people who cover the team, but there’s just far too much nonsense and garbage floating around out there on a daily basis. To really hammer that point home, I took a Gary Myers column from last August about how Michael Vick should start and basically picked it apart line by line, in the old “Fire Joe Morgan” fashion. (Here is the link to that article: NYDN Sadness: Gary Myers Edition). 

Anyway, a year later, and Gary is still up to his same old awful, awful tricks. Today, he wrote something about Geno Smith and… well, I’m not even really sure what the point of the whole thing was. It was basically a mess, in standard Gary Myers fashion. So let’s dust off the keyboard here and give the worst offender in the New York media the same treatment as last time.  Continue reading “New York Jets Media Sadness: Gary Myers Edition… Again”

More New York Jets Media Sadness – NFL Draft Edition

Mike Donnelly of TOJ breaks down Steve Serby’s horrible column about why the New York Jets should trade up for Marcus Mariota

As you probably know, I like to make fun of the mostly terrible media coverage that our beloved New York Jets get, particularly when it comes to Gary Myers and the New York Daily News. In fact, last year, I devoted an entire post here to ripping apart a Gary Myers column about the Jets starting quarterback job in “Fire Joe Morgan” fashion. Here’s a link to that, in case you want to check it out. As fun as ripping ol’ Gary is though, he isn’t the only terrible writer in this town who spews nonsense and horrible ideas to unsuspecting readers. Today, Steve Serby – who is one of the few who can match Myers on the crappy-scale – threw his hat in the ring with an awful column about how the Jets have to trade up for Marcus Mariota at all costs. When something this horrible gets printed, it gets the Gary Myers treatment, so let’s get started. Continue reading “More New York Jets Media Sadness – NFL Draft Edition”

New York Jets CBS Sadness

Mike Donnelly of TOJ breaks down an article proclaiming the Giants better than the New York Jets from Jason Keidel

A few weeks back I wrote an article breaking down a particular crappy column by Gary Myers of the Daily News. I borrowed the format from an old awesome website called Fire Joe Morgan (FJM) that used to pick apart things in a similar fashion, and we got pretty good feedback here from it. I’ve been waiting for another column to pop up that could match that level of absolute garbage, and today I believe I’ve found it!

New York Jets Daily News Sadness

Mike Donnelly of TurnOnTheJets critiques a column by Gary Myers of the Daily News calling for Michael Vick to start over Geno Smith for the New York Jets.

As we all know, the media coverage for our New York Jets can be insufferable at times. Sure, there are plenty of very good beat writers and columnists who do a great job covering the team, but too often they get overshadowed by the pure garbage that gets printed, which is a shame.

Speaking of garbage, Gary Myers wrote a column today! It was a doozy too, in which he discussed the Jets “quarterback controversy” while making his case for Michael Vick being the starter. At least, I think that was his premise, because the whole thing was a sloppy mess that ran off the rails pretty quickly. So grab a drink, sit down, and let’s analyze this…
