I’m still here, just super busy with a new gig

Apologies for the lack of posts the last few days.  I have a new gig.  I am now a writer for…

(drumroll)…

The Jets!  J! E! T! S! JETS JETS JETS!!!

It’s at NJ.com, more specifically NJ.com/jets.  Here is my entry from this morning.  NJ.com is the online site for the Star-Ledger, although I’ll be writing online only.  I’ve been working hard to beef up my Jets knowledge to the level of my NFCE knowledge, so time has been hard to come by.

Not to worry though… The bEast isn’t going anywhere.  I attended the Eagles-Steelers game last night, and have that game DVR’d, as well as the Redskins-Bills game.  I’ll have a ton of notes on both games over the weekend, as well as notes on the Giants game tonight and the Cowboys on Monday, and I’ll be back at Eagles training camp on Sunday.  I also plan on putting out my first Eagles 53-man roster soon, but with a lot of detail.

    Congrats man, its all coming together now.

    I expect that you’ll bring voice if reason to the jets and demand they start Tebow game 1.

    grats jimmy, obviously the jets are the like the JV NY football team, but hopefully the Varsity squad will ring ya up in a year or two.

  5. Greg says:

    EWW the Jets??!! Burn him!

    Just kidding, congrats on the new gig Jimmy.

  6. Mick says:

    Congratulations man, that is a quality site. Mike Garafolo, the Giants beat guy, is one of the best in the biz. The Jets coverage could use your quality and insite. I will point my Jets fan family at you.

  7. RogerPodacter says:

    hey jimmy – i’m interested in reading your stuff about the jets. it would be a good point of comparison for the other NFCE teams. i dont follow nj.com at all, so it would be helpful for people like me if you would post a link on here somewhere (or tell us a convenient place to find your jets stuff when available).

    thanks and congrats

    Congrats..but out of curiousity how did you get this gig seeing as you write for the Eagles and NFC East…Like did someone from NJ.com come across your writing and say “hey let’s plug him in?” Awesome either way

    Congrats on the new job, but rather you than me; you’re gonna have to watch some lame-ass football this season. Out of interest, do you have to pretend that you actually like the Jets in your material, or can you use it as a platform to convince their fans that they’re following the wrong team?

  10. AustonianAggie says:

    Jets, yuck man. Wouldn’t want to cover them with a dirty rag.

  11. Straygap says:

    You deserve it. Best of luck!

  12. ATLeagle says:

    congratulations. Maybe your daughter wont starve after all.
    I am really glad that you have yet another team that you can use your snark to defend against writers with absurd conclusions. I know nothing about the Jets and I laughed at the dismantling you gave.

  13. icdogg says:

    Congrats. The Jets are one of the more fascinating teams to follow, I think.

  14. Imp says:

    How did you wind up with the Jets?

    Also, congrats and best of luck working there.

    Just Joking 🙂
    Congrats!

  16. brisulph says:

    Congrats Jimmy, even if you have to write about the Jets. Pretty big deal, so make it your own and kick some ass!

  17. ct17 says:

    For Jets coverage, will you be watching Access Hollywood or Entertainment Tonight?

  18. Dez Bryant's Probation Officer says:

    Maybe Tebow can heal that seven-finger hand of yours.

  19. Have you gotten to touch Tebow yet?

    1. Not yet, but hopefully soon.

      1. Kben says:

        You know you can’t look directly at him right?? Think Ark of the Covenant from Raiders of the Lost Ark.

  20. Tom says:

    Congrats on the new gig. As a NJ resident I read NJ.com frequently. Now I have another reason to! (hate the new look of the site though)

  21. nathalie says:

    woooo congratulations ! sam lynch tweeted a few links yesterday, i was wondering if you had crossed to the other-green side for good and left us orphans. pleased to see it’s not the case, all the best to you in that endeavour.

  22. Neil says:

    A turncoat in our midst? LETS HANG IM

  23. Dez Bryant's Probation Officer says:

    Hey — what are you doing tonight?
    Wanna get together?

  24. Dez Bryant's Mother says:

    Congrats Jimmy

    1. Hey, what happened to Dez Bryant’s parole officer?

      1. Oh, nevermind, there he is.

  25. Nils_eaglesfan says:

    Congratulations on your new gig. You are putting out a ton of terrific content, and i like the way you write. The podcast with Tommy is also pretty good!

  26. BBI says:

    Congrats Jimmy! That’s awesome!

  27. Dez Bryant's Probation Officer says:

    Congratulations!
    Do you have any Emerson Boozer updates?

    1. ct17 says:

      He still looks like he could play. The Jets play like they could still use him.
