There were many reasons the Knicks fell 105-100 to the Trail Blazers last night. Letting Portland shoot over 50 percent rom the field is right at the top of that list. Getting off to a terrible start is up there, too. So what or whom did the New York tabloids blame? You probably have a guess, and it’s probably right. See it for yourself after the jump.
Remember when the Jets made back-to-back AFC championship games? Seems like a long time ago with the Jets being 3-6 and all, doesn’t it? Well, here’s something to make it sound like the even more distant past: the Jets are now anonymously ripping one of their own teammates? “Why, the only thing that could make this better would if Tebow were the guy they were all ripping,” you think. Well…
New York Scribes Are Freaking Out Over Eli Manning And The New York Giants, Write The Same, Worthless Column
The Cincinnati Bengals walked all over the New York Giants on Sunday, easily coasting to a 31-13 win with stellar defensive line play and an efficient 21-30 for 199 yards and 4 TDs from QB Andy Dalton. It’s New York’s second consecutive loss. Still, the team is 6-4 and leading the NFC East, so they can’t be playing that poorly, right?
Raul Ibanez Pinch Hits For A-Rod, Does Way Better Than A-Rod, New York Tabloids Being Real Dicks About It
Boy, what a night for Raul Ibanez, huh? Comes in as a pinch-hitter in the ninth inning, hits both the game-tying and game-winning home runs? Pretty amazing story. Must have been all anyone could talk about… or not.
Amar’e Stoudemire will officially miss Game 3 for the Knicks in their series with the Miami Heat, all because he punched a fire extinguisher. Naturally, the New York papers have had some fun at his expense.
It was up in the air for a while, but Tim Tebow is officially a New York Jet, and his arrival means some of New York’s more, um, passionate media members have a great excuse to freak out. That includes the city’s most prominent tabloids. After the jump, we answer the question of who freaked out better.
Well, Jeremy Lin had a terrible game last night, and the Knicks lost to the Heat. Neither of those facts should come as a shock – the Heat are way better than the Knicks, and Lin was bound to have a game eventually where he’d couple excessive turnovers with poor shooting. Just don’t tell any of this to New York’s tabloids.
The New York Daily News spoke with “several key Jets players and members of the organization” about quarterback Mark Sanchez, and the picture they painted wasn’t a pretty one. The sources, who refused to be named, said the lack of internal pressure on Sanchez (backup QB Mark Brunell is 41, and was never a viable option to replace Sanchez on the field) made him “lazy” and “content.” Oh, and they want the team to go out and get Peyton Manning. “Come on. That’s a no-brainer,” a Jets source said. “If you have a chance to get a healthy 36-year-old Peyton Manning and you don’t do it, then you’re stupid.” [Daily News]
Be it on the field, or in the stands at Sun Life Stadium, the Dolphins are treated as the NFL’s running joke. It’s not tough to see why: they’re still winless after six games, and at times (actually, most of the time) they’ve looked uncompetitive. Still, it’s one thing to acknowledge the fact that the Dolphins aren’t a very good team. It’s another thing entirely to literally point and laugh at them.
