Belichick was actually named head coach of the Jets for the first time in 1997 while the Jets were working to finalize Bill Parcells' move from New England to New...

The Browns and Jets are the winners of NFL free agency so far. Insert joke here about that’s why Lombardi Trophies are handed out in February, and not March. But those smarmy jokes don’t detract from the fact both teams have improved significantly over the last week. Cleveland, which won five of...

It doesn’t matter what Adam Gase actually said in his first press conference as head coach of the New York Jets. His bug-eyed stare told the whole story: this is not the man who will mold Sam Darnold into a franchise QB and lead the Gang Green back to playoff contention. Gase looked like he was...

The NFL is an overwhelmingly black league with only two African-American coaches right now. That is a big problem. The lack of diversity on NFL sidelines and front offices came to light this week with the firing of five black coaches at the end of the season: Hue Jackson, Todd Bowles, Steve Wilks,...

There is something admirable about the strength of Bill Belichick’s disdain for the Jets. He wants to destroy his arch-nemesis so badly, he will have Tom Brady stand in the pocket and throw until nearly the final moments of a multiple-touchdown game. On Sunday, the Patriots were well on their way...

The Patriots sent another AFC East coach packing with their blowout victory over the Jets Sunday. Just hours after their third straight double-digit loss season came to an end, the Jets announced they were moving on from Todd Bowles.

The highlight of Dan Fout’s error-laden season in the booth came when he quoted his cameo appearance from “The Waterboy,” which was released 20 years ago. “Last game of the year,” Fouts said when the Jets went for it on 4th down from the Patriots 3-yard line with roughly four minutes left in the...

The Patriots close out the regular season in Foxboro Sunday afternoon against the Jets. While they’ve already locked up a 10th straight AFC East title, the 10-5 Pats still have plenty to play for. New England can clinch a first-round bye with a win, and it still has a shot at the No. 1 seed, but...
