Is trash talking good for the NFL?

Is trash talking good for the NFL?

Talk big, win bigger

Trash talk is good for the NFL, the media and football fans. Say what you want to say and prove your worth on the field, just as the Jets did Sunday night.

Rex's hype machine

All the trash talking from the New York Jets is a calculated tactic from Rex Ryan to hype his players up and make them feel the world is against them. It may be crazy, it may be genius or it may be both. Either way, it's good for the NFL.

By Anthony Stalter | January 18, 2011; 12:32 PM ET | Comments (0)

Please shut up

It's time for Rex Ryan, Antonio Cromartie and the Jets to shut up and play football or risk alienating their fanbase and the rest of the NFL.

Walking the walk

Increased media coverage of the NFL has incited more trash talking than ever - the effects of which could be seen Sunday in New England.

The personal nature of an increasingly bitter rivalry makes the Jets-Patriots matchup makes it the most intriguing of weekend.

Parity reigns supreme

Parity reigns supreme in the NFL and if you're a general football fan, you're mighty happy about it.

Vulnerabilities abound

This type of competitive balance keeps more teams -- and their fans -- believing a Super Bowl run is a possibility. And that's exactly what the NFL wants to see.

Pay him and play him

If Darrelle Revis can be as dominant as he was for the New York Jets defense last season, he's worthy of being the highest paid defensive back in the NFL.

Conflict brewing in Cortland

The escalating stand-off between the New York Jets and cornerback Darrelle Revis has taken on Cold War characteristics.

Revis is the key

The Jets have been overhyped by everyone this season, and the only chance they have of living up to the hype is by getting Darrelle Revis back on the field.

By Michael Kun | August 11, 2010; 10:55 AM ET | Comments (1)

Show him the money

New York Jets owner Woody Johnson needs Darrelle Revis to build a winner. It's time to open up the checkbook.

By Dave Goldberg | August 11, 2010; 10:45 AM ET | Comments (1)

Put team first

Darrelle Revis is more concerned with being the highest paid player at his position than he is with helping the New York Jets contend for a Super Bowl. Kudos to the Jets for not folding to his selfish demands.

By Anthony Stalter | August 11, 2010; 10:33 AM ET | Comments (0)

No Super Bowl without him

The Jets need to give the top cover cornerback in the NFL his due, because they absolutely need him to achieve their potential this season.

Super Meadowlands

New York is the perfect site to host the Super Bowl and the biggest week-long party in all of American professional sports.

By Edward Valentine | May 25, 2010; 12:01 AM ET | Comments (3)

Not your average Super Bowl

Playing a Super Bowl in New York could change the style of play on the field, but it won't make the dream of hosting the NFL's biggest game any closer to reality for the rest of the league's cold-weather teams.

By Brandon Benson | May 25, 2010; 12:01 AM ET | Comments (3)

Embrace the elements

Every city, regardless of climate, should have the opportunity to host the Super Bowl and experience the pinnacle of the NFL experience.

By Anthony Stalter | May 25, 2010; 12:00 AM ET | Comments (0)

Always warm on the couch

Cold weather Super Bowls would enhance the experience of the vast majority of NFL fans -- those who watch the game from the climate-controlled comforts of their own homes.

By Michael Kun | May 25, 2010; 12:00 AM ET | Comments (0)

Follow the money

The promise of a Super Bowl helps convince local municipalities to open up their wallets to help pay for new stadiums, regardless of climate.

By Jason Brewer | May 25, 2010; 12:00 AM ET | Comments (0)

A flip of the coin

If the NFL begins to play Super Bowl games at outdoor stadiums in cold-weather climates, it will lead to the thought that championship games can be played anywhere and forever alter the league's grandest spectacle.

By Dave Goldberg | May 25, 2010; 12:00 AM ET | Comments (0)

Costs of the cold

Nostalgia aside, while playing multiple Super Bowls in cold weather cities would provide a boost to local economies, it would also test the financial abilities of those markets to host such a massive event.

By Josh Kirkendall | May 25, 2010; 12:00 AM ET | Comments (0)

Piling on layers

While hosting Super Bowls in cold climates may weed out some of the corporate presence at the NFL championship game and allow more average fans to attend, the product on the field could cost the league casual fans who prefer high-scoring affairs to defensive struggles.

By Adam Tracey | May 25, 2010; 12:00 AM ET | Comments (0)

Don't Expect It Beyond New York

If New Meadowlands Stadium hosts a Super Bowl, it will be a reward for the New York Giants and Jets spending so much money on a new stadium, but that won't necessarily lead to more cold weather championship games.

Short sighted moves

Bringing in Santonio Holmes and Antonio Cromartie give the Jets a better chance to win now, but by the end of the season, the could be right back where they were without the draft picks to fill the same holes.

By Jason Brewer | April 14, 2010; 10:55 AM ET | Comments (1)

Unfamiliar spotlight

The Jets flourished with a roster full of role players and team-oriented individuals in year one under Rex Ryan. He'll face a much greater test with a new trio of players who prefer the spotlight to anonymity.

On paper, two great moves

On paper, the Jets have upgraded their talent for a relatively low price. The question that remains is how will those new pieces - specifically Santonio Holmes and Antonio Cromartie - fit in with their team.

Locker room test

By bringing in an aging veteran tailback and a pair of talented players with a history of off the field troubles, Rex Ryan and the New York Jets are testing the strength of the locker room chemistry that helped them reach the AFC title game last season.

By John Gennaro | April 13, 2010; 12:00 AM ET | Comments (0)

The operative word is 'if'

With a pair of talented players with off the field joining last year's AFC finalists in New York, the pay off for the Jets comes down to several big 'ifs'.

It rests on Rex

Rex Ryan must find a way for the latest additions to the New York Jets to mesh with his locker room for a team that lucked into the playoffs in 2009 to make a return trip in 2010.
