I made this blog a long time ago, or at least it feels like it.

Ya Gotta Believe, No Matter What: My Mets Manifesto

My name is Jon Presser, and I love the New York Mets.

I love the New York Metropolitans as much as any sane person should.

My friends will bust my chops all the time. “Why are you a Met fan?” they ask, “why don’t you root for a team that wins?”

Right. Because I’m a fan of the Mets, Jets and New Jersey Nets. I’m a diehard baseball fan and football fan.

I dabble in the NBA. It’s growing on me a bit. I don’t watch hockey, but I identify as a Rangers fan.

I was six years old when the Rangers won the Stanley Cup. I remember being happy about it, but not in any meaningful way.

I’m 22 years old, and other than that half-hearted Stanley Cup victory, I’ve never seen any of my teams win a championship.

The NFLPA’s Super Bowl Ad: “Let Us Play”

NFLPA President Kevin Mawae, a former New York Jets center and an all-around nice guy, is faced with a big dark cloud hanging over the NFLPA following Super Bowl XLV.

Yes, the NFL would like to pretend that everything is fine and dandy, but the fact of the matter is, the NFL owners unanimously opted out of the current collective bargaining agreement in 2008, and there is a strong possibility that they will lock out the players in March.

It’s sad, really, that a lockout is looming because the owners are being greedy and the NFLPA is not willing to give up well-deserved rights in order to reach a deal.

This could be a black eye for America’s most popular league, as the owners stand to benefit from the lockout, they will earn $4.5 billion from their TV contracts in 2011 even if there are no games played.

The NFLPA has a simple message, “lets us play.”

This 60-second spot will air during Super Bowl XLV.

Jets Lose Jim Leonhard to Freak Injury in Practice, Out Indefinitely

The Jets took a huge blow today at the end of Friday practice when safety Jim Leonhard got tangled up with back-up receiver Patrick Turner and suffered what is being described by the team as a “severe” injury to his shin and had to be carted off the field.

It’s too early to tell the nature or the severity of the injury, but the Jets starting safety and punt returner will be out for Monday’s game and could possibly miss a lot longer than that if the injury is indeed a break, as some people are speculating.

The bottom line is that the Jets will have to move on and face the New England Patriots on Monday without one of their most important players. Leonhard calls the coverages for the defensive backfield and is like a quarterback for the defense.

Both Jets and Patriots Have Different Looks Since Their Last Meeting

When the Jets beat the Patriots in week 2, it was a huge victory at the time for Gang Green.

They were coming off an embarrassing 10-9 week 1 loss, and had a virtual must-win against New England. No one in the Jets organization would’ve liked starting 0-2 coming off of Hard Knocks with all the hype surrounding the team.

That’s why it was a huge win when they were able to score 21 unanswered points and hold the Patriots scoreless in the second half in a 28-14 comeback victory for their first win of the season.

Mets Hire Terry Collins as New Manager With a Two-Year Deal

The Mets have made a decision on their new manager, and reportedly it will be Terry Collins who gets the job.

After deliberating over the weekend, the new Mets front office has decided on the former Angels manager over Bob Melvin, Wally Backman and Chip Hale. The team will hold a press conference on Tuesday to introduce their new manager.

What’s interesting is that the Mets are giving Collins a two-year deal as opposed to a three or four-year deal. There’s been talk that Backman and Hale are excellent prospects to manage the team in the future, but that the Mets may not be comfortable handing them the keys yet.

In the meantime, while he may not have been the fan favorite that Backman or Hale was, Collins at least deserves a fair chance from the Shea faithful to prove he’s the right man for the job. If Sandy Alderson is endorsing him, then who are we to say that he’s not?

Jets Win a Thriller in OT as They Continue Their Dominance on the Road

Wow.

That’s all I could say when it was all said and done. The Jets needed every minute of overtime to secure the victory, but they fought for it and got the win with less than 30 seconds remaining in the overtime period to beat Eric Mangini, Rob Ryan, and the resurgent Cleveland Browns.

Santonio Holmes scored the game winner, his first touchdown as a New York Jet, on a 37-yard catch-and-run with 16 seconds remaining in the game. Holmes caught a quick slant, made his man miss, then juked past two defenders and walked in for the touchdown.

The Jets became the first team in NFL history to win consecutive overtime games on the road, and they’ve now won eight consecutive regular season road games dating back to last season. Including the playoffs, they’ve won 10 of their last 11 on the road. They have an NFL-best 5-0 record on the road this season.
