Website/Blog on the New York Jets.
Giving you our view on the Jets from either side of the pond.
Fair enough. Holmes has put in his time in the NFL, has earned a Super Bowl MVP award, and was a key clutch player late in games for the Jets in 2010. The Jets have to step up here or risk losing their biggest playmaker in the passing game.

Thought I’d take some time out from the website building and give you an insight to whats going on @nyjoverthepond, and what has driven/inspired me to do this.
Well this has been an ongoing struggle for me, I love the NFL/Jets but as I reside a mere 3500 plus miles outside the USA getting anything NFL related has been difficult. (I hear you screaming to use the Internet) but if only it was that simple.
I get to watch the games on Thursdays, Sundays & Mondays like many of you back in the US, the guys in our studios do a fantastic job on translating whats going on throughout the league, we also get the same in game commentary as US viewers - this I like immensely. My problem has been once the game/broadcast is over its like the NFL ceases to exist until the next televised game. There is little, if any, news shown on any of 350 plus TV channels (of which I watch 4) broadcast during the week. I’ve found that this seems to be common practice in many countries. I then have to spend time searching the Internet/Twitter for all the breaking news, I realized how off putting and time consuming this can be for fans that don’t have much time on their hands as family/everyday life is busier than ever.
I thought why not share all the news/views/amazing blogs that I find with fellow Jets fans worldwide,and get even more people to enjoy all that is great within the NFL. My main motivation to do all this came about by following @E_man/@Jetstwit (Erik Manassy) reading his tweets (especially during the playoffs) I felt like I was padded up and ready to take down anyone that got in the way of the Jets quest towards the Superbowl *still hurting*. He’d made me feel the excitement/disappointment, blood,sweat and tears of the season and most of all - proud to be a Jets fan. If I can replicate a small fraction of that to other Jets fans I’d be more than ecstatic. The the idea of putting all this onto a website was born (my wife sighs).
Now you know why: here’s my goal. To provide as much info from various sites/sources as I can to all Jets fans worldwide. I’ll have links to Jets sites/blogs a few familiar and new features for everyone enjoy all in one place - saving you the time and effort. The site is progressing well and I’ll keep you informed of any developments and all the jets news Via my twitter account.
Thanks for taking time out to read about me and for adding me. The response and well wishes I’ve received has been overwhelming. It inspires me. Be sure to check out @ukjets they’ve been extremely helpful with what I’m doing. Also a huge shout out to E, (my Wife Sara says you’ll have a court order against me soon, as I’m forever seeking your advice via emails and tweets) thanks for the help Bro :) and as you know behind every man there’s a good woman,so special thanks to my Amazing wife Sara who’s rolled with this idea and supported me 100% - I love you.
You can breathe a sigh of relief now I’m going back to 140 characters, wow I can Ramble :)

Don’t get me wrong the Madden football series is amazing and one that I’m a huge fan of,admittedly I’m not that good at it,but Having recently read an article on how the Madden video game series is to have player concussion incorporated into the game,it set me off to wondering just how much content/realism should there be?,without detracting from the actual concept of the game, but if your going to make it realistic then surely nothing should be left out?
I get that Its important to educate young children them on the game,they need to understand that you don’t just pop back up to line of scrimmage after a hard hit the NFL is a dangerous sport and players suffer serious injuries,(why have an option to turn injuries off hmmm) Is there an option where you can turn off the field antics on/off? I doubt it very much.
Surely the children need to be educated on that too,the transition from college football to the greatest stage of all the NFL. We hear about season after season on how young aspiring superstars fall into the mishaps of stardom.Even the players that have been in the league for a number of years create more headlines off the field than on it.
No matter whats included or not its sure be another hit with fans worldwide (myself included) The fact that such injuries are being highlighted is a step in the right direction.
