Here’s a Way to Support Curtis’ ‘Rush to Canton’

Posted by Randy Lange on January 20, 2012 – 2:35 pm

The Jets will not be at the Super Bowl. Of this we are all painfully aware. But one former Jet is about two weeks away from being talked up at the Super venue in Indianapolis. And on Feb. 4, Curtis Martin will find out if he’ll be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in his second year as a Hall finalist.

We’re trying to help “Rush Curt to Canton.” Fans can go to curttocanton.com to support Martin’s run to the Hall of Fame. On this microsite, fans have the opportunity to watch Curtis’ highlight video and show their support via Twitter and Facebook. Once they become supporters, fans can tweet out to their followers: “I support Curtis Martin’s rush to the NFL HOF! Do you? http://bit.ly/Curt2Canton #CurtToCanton” or share the message on their Facebook feeds.

Another Hall for Schroy

Speaking of the Hall, former Jets safety Ken Schroy is gaining entry to another fame-ous organization. He’ll be inducted into the Lehigh Valley (Pa.) Sports Hall of Fame at an induction dinner April 21 at the Northampton Memorial Community Center. Kenny starred at Quakertown High before moving on to Maryland and then to the Jets from 1977-84.

Of note is that a fellow member of Schroy’s LVSHOF Class of ’12 is Chuck Bednarik, “the last of the 60-minute men” from Bethlehem, Pa., Penn and the Eagles.

For Schroy, this is the second Hall of Fame we’re aware of that has him as a member. In 2008 the transplanted Long Islander and vice president of the Marty Lyons Foundation was inducted into the Suffolk (N.Y.) Sports Hall of Fame. What he told us then applies just as much four years later: “At my age now, any recognition is a wonderful thing.”

    Randy,
    Aren’t the Jets about due to play in the HOF Game? I think 92 was the last time they played in that game.

  2. By Randy Lange on Jan 20, 2012 | Reply

    Ira, there is no set formula for the Hall of Fame Game participants, just a general rule that every team will play in the game once about every 16 years. So by that number, yes, the Jets are due to play in the HOF game soon, but I’ve haven’t heard if it’s this year, next year or the year after.

    Just read Rex’s comments about Shotty’s offense being to complicated on NFL.com. I almost fell of the chair laughing. How complicated can those 7 yard slants and those dump off passes to the RB be. C’mon Rex! Here is my argument to that, in the Jets game against the Giants Manning completed nine (9) passes for 225 yards Sanchez completed thirty (30) yes, THIRTY passes for 258 yards. A whopping 8.6 yards per catch. If the Jets offense was to complicated then the Giants offensive playbook must have been written by Albert Einstein.

    This whole captains thing this past year was nuts. Santionio is the type of player that makes teams need captains and the make him a captain? Sanchez has earned nothing and at the ripe old age of 24 with 2 whole seasons under his belt was made captain? Mangold yes, LT yes the earned it and are leaders. Naming Santonio was like having the worst kid in your 5th grade class put in charge when the teacher steps out.This team is going to need VETERAN leadership next year, there are just some things that have to handled player to player without coaches.

    For the Hall of Shame: ESPN says we’re over the salary cap at $125 mil and the Pats are under it at $100 mil. And the Pats have 2 #1’s and #2’s. Anyone who would try to argue that NE isn’t doing it the right way and won’t be on top of our division for yrs to come, or at least as long as Brady is healthy, is certainly on another planet. The only good news out of this is that it makes a new QB scenario in 2012 more likely. When you spend like that to build a team to win now, you don’t give “Mark” until his 6th yr to look anything like a consistently good, much less elite, QB. Fortunately, Rex’s admission that all his talk has made it tougher on the team supports my view he’s just a hired hand from here on, with Sparano ready to step in.

    Brees or Flynn to the Jets is not going to happen Flynn will be offered twice the money he will get from us & a starting job. Brees wants to stay with the Saints & they might offer him the biggest contract ever. But this Peyton thing is becoming more real by the day. There is ZERO chance the Colts pay $50 MIL for the 2 QBS they have on the roster. It would wreck the Colts Peyton will be on another team next year. It is just a matter of weather or not it is the Jets & do to the fact that they are going to have to cut him cause NO ONE is going to pay that $28 MIL bonus due in March. He is going to be a free agent so if we were to get him we would not have to give up anything.

  8. By Bennett on Jan 21, 2012 | Reply

    Peyton will not cost the Jets anything? He will require such a huge contract that the will be unable to sign any quality free agents that they despertaley need. The will sacrifice any chance of builing a long term balanced team for what is in effect such a short term fix as to be almost a gimmick. I want to see the Jets compete for the next ten years. This is not how you build a Football team not to mention he is 36 YEARS OLD, HAS HAD 3 NECK SURGERIES, MISSED THE ENTIRE LAST SEASON AND CAN NOT AS OF TODAY EVEN THROW A FOOTBALL

    Why is anyone mentioning Brees to the Jets? Why would he leave the dome, a SB ready team. N.O. is home to this man. Pipe dreaming again. No one is dying to play for the Jets boys. Jets have to add a viable option at QB. Contract can be structure to add someone like Flynn. If he’s what Jets want. No one else is going to go crazy for Flynn except to drive up Jets price. Eagles dropped one of those one game wonders one Miami a while back and another on Arizona this year. Not to mention KC…Think GMs have cooled to the idea of hitching their wagons to these guys…That said, for me, anyone coming out of G.B. system gets thumbs up.

    Sparno as a head coach? The all ready tried that and he failed and got fired. Sparano is a proven losser as a head coach. Why would you even cosider a losing head coach? I would only want to see a proven winner. I’m putting my money on Ryan I think he is a winner I may be wrong but next season will tell

He also does something that’s unheard of in this country today……..HE ADMITS BEING WRONG ABOUT SOMETHING……IN PUBLIC! FOR EVERYONE TO HEAR! Totally disagree with his approach, but I don’t dislike this coach. Totally respect a man who can say I got it wrong I’m going to do this another way.

    Curtis Martin by far favourite Jet of all-time. Please Mr.T pick up Peyton this off season. You know Peyton Hillis. He is still young and would fit the ground and pound and is a much better receiver than Greene. Would like to see combo of Hillis and Greene next season. Also if OT Riley Reiff is there at 16 please take him if not MLB Luke Kuechly is a tackling machine and would be the no stress plug in and play player Jets have so desperately needed over the past few drafts. I can’t take another Gholston or Ducasse again. If so I may convert to a Patriots fan. You know they will turn out a few gems from there 18 picks.

    Can’t see the ravens beating the Pats this year. Unless Rice runs 40 times and Brady gets about 20 min on the field. Hate to say this but the Pats are going to the SB to lose the the Giants. This is a nightmare to a very bad season.
    Can’t wait for free agency to start and put this year behind us.

    Forget about Flynn, he’s going to Miami with his O.C from Green Bay to start there. Payton still has some good years left if “healthy” but, way too expensive for any team that pursues him, unless he’s willing to take less cause he is still a big ??? regarding his neck injury. Peyton alone can cripple any teams financial salary cap for years and not many teams are going to take that chance for a short time fix.. Including the Jets…

    I have to agree with Wayne on the Brees to the NY Jets rumors. That is absolutely, positively a non issue. Never happen? Do not even go there. He will be starting in NO next season whether he is being paid the highest salary ever by a QB, or if it is under the franchise tag. As far as the other viable QB options? Matt Flynn? I think Miami just gained the inside track by signing Philben as their next HC.If that happens, watch out for the fish in 2012. As for Payton? There are a lot of questions there, but out of those three Payton could be the most likely. As for the rest? Not a whole lot out there, maybe a Campbell, Henne, a healthy Garrard. Not much to get excited about.

    Hey Bennett, before NE, Belichick was in Cleveland. He was 36-44 with one playoff appearance. Now look where he is. Sometimes its just where someone is located. Sorry, I can’t argue with success.
    BTW, Spicer, I like how you defend JaMarcus Russell, a person who showed up to meetings frequently late and was very unprofessional. Unlike him, Flynn is still in the NFL and isn’t in it for the payday.

    Enough Peyton Manning talk. Your telling me, one of the greatest and professional players in history is going to want to get traded to a train reck team with ground and pound Rex and Sparano, inwhich his brother plays for the other NY team. There are way to many reasons why Peyton wouldn’t and shouldn’t play for this team. If Peyton gets out which will not happen he would much rather play a team like the Vikings or Arizona.

    Ira, just wishful thinking. Next best thing would be them losing to the Gs again…………………………scjoe, totally agree on Flynn to MIA. If he’s any good that coach would be the best judge, and if so no way he let’s him slip away. No to mention the comfort level the QB has with him…………..I think Flynn is going to work out. That organization produces quality guys………………..I think the coach is going to be a good pickup too.

    Assuming Flynn follows Philibin to MIA, Campbell is best option. I would put him ahead Flynn.

    Wayne, Bennett, and Gabriel, this is for you. I’m down on Rex and Sanchez because they make the same mistakes over and over and these days no one gives you 5 yrs to do that, Woody certainly sounds like he’s not gonna. Rex shoulda fired Schotty no later than 11/09 when he blew the 2nd MIA game, but he stuck with him for another yr and a half.This entire yr, MS couldn’t see the guy coming across the middle for the pick, he made that mistake early, middle, and end of the season. I don’t like Sparano as a HC but he’s got the experience to be interim coach if necessary next yr, that’s partly why he got the job. If Rex and MS bomb again by mid-2012, Woody can fire Rex or start planning to, write MS off (his 4th yr), and start all over in 2013.

    Can one of you who continuously bring up the idea that Peyton will not play in NY because his brother already is, please tell me the relevance of that. For the life of me I can’t understand how one has anything to do with the other. They are both professionals, if anything I think that would be a factor why Payton would want to come here.One thing is certain, if Payton decided that he wanted to play in NY for the NY Jets, where his brother is playing would be a non issue.

    Hans, although I hate to admit it, I think Belichek is one of the great coaches of our time, BUT, he didn’t have a guy named Brady in Cleveland. That makes much more of a difference then just change alone. As for the Russell/Matt Flynn issue? I think you are right on.

    Bennett, How is the big contract the Pats gave Brady working out for them? Why are the Saints ready to give Brees a record breaking contract? Cause they are getting themselves a franchise QB. You get the franchise QB & you work out your roster around that. Also lets say we had to cut guys unless it is Mangold, Brick, Revis or Harris are you or anyone going to loss sleep over it. If he is healthy & gives you at least a 3 year commitment. YOU DO IT! When I said give up nothing I am preety sure YOU know I meat no players or draft picks.

    Tom Brady and Belichick are on a mission. The demarcation for them, spygate. They’ve done nothing since it occurred. A SB victory restores everything. For both of these, cheats, ahem, I mean competitors it’s that important…….That being said, I don’t rate their competitive fire above Ray Lewis and Ed Reed’s, looking at their last go round…….Besides, everyone is paying way too much attention to last weeks lopsided win against DEN. Either way, NE will have to wait another year for redemption. Because the NY Giants have the antidote to what NE does. Passrush….I’m just hoping it doesn’t get to that. Rex did predict a Ravens win, and I’m not too keen on his predictions. So I’ll hedge my bet.

    Dare I say it, listening to Ryan I think he was humbled by this season and.he did need a big dose of humility. When he started talking before the Giants game I really could not believe it. Biggest game of the season and you do everything possible to fire up THE GIANTS. Should be an interesting off-season/ draft… I’m very optomistic about next season now that Schoty is gone the team looks like they are going to make alot of very necessary changes and address the weakness instead of pretending the don’t exist….. we shall see

    scjoe, I think Rex was saying the offensive gameplan was too complicated for Jets players and for him, which isn’t necessarily a stab at he or the players, but indirectly at the OC…..You know, young gun, more obsessed with displaying brilliance than being effective…..Everyone else knew what was coming most of the time and he couldn’t see that…..Under fire he’d put together a good gameplan, then sadly, back to same old….Yes, players have to execute, but make no mistake about it coaches are there to do more than gameplan, they teach and they inspire……When that happens, players execute……………Coach’sr job is to confuse the OPPONENT……Player most in need of simplification of the system right now is the QB.

    Ira, your tolerance for mediocrity is unparalleled. “We head into next yr with Sanchez and Henne” is about as appealing to me as news of another strike. And you wonder, GaryC, why I wouldn’t mind seeing the Giants win the SB? And yeah, keep in mind what dem bums did next — move 3000 miles away to change the script. Hilarious, Kevin65, though we should only be so lucky. Another thing I see from Jet fans on the NFL site but rarely here is that we shoulda held out for our own stadium in New York, the real New York or Long Island, not NJ. I agree, scjoe, that Eli is no factor re Peyton as a Jet. I worry, however, that Peyton would be just another desperation move when what we need is to get smarter about the way we build an entire team.

    you clearly know nothing about football. what rex was referring to\o was all the movement before the plays. we had way to many shifts before most plays that would just confuse everyone and make the play lose its value when the timing is thrown off on the slants. no one is calling a slant a tough route, but someone should be questioning if u know anything about the sport/team at all..

    GaryC, Testaverde,Esiasion, O’Donnell and 45 year old Brett Favre are not Peyton Manning. Although Vinny had a nice run and you can’t fault him those couple of years for not getting it done, a few of the other players had something to do with that. No one ever said Peyton and Peyton alone would be enough to get you to the SB (although looking at the Colts this year as compared to last year, I am not even sure of that) but it sure is a giant step in the right direction. Can you actually deny the fact that a “healthy” Peyton Manning would not be a major upgrade at the most important position on the field. Can any of you?

  50. By wayne on Jan 22, 2012 | Reply

    scjoe, it’s hard for me to see the Colts cutting a healthy Manning. They have way too many needs. If there are still question as to his recovery, that’s another matter. And then it becomes a matter of whether he wants to come play for a team that can’t protect their QB……If he’s healthy enough and they let him go, the Jets are not going to let that oppty pass……….GaryC, I don’t really know anything about Flynn and am also leary of these kinds of roll of the dice. We’ve seen how they work out already. It’s about getting someone to push GQ because he’s still Rex and T’s man. I think GQ’s got a huge ego and it needs to be shaken a bit. If it’s Campbell or Flynn, I think that would be a start.

    Wayne,I hear you, I think the only reason the Colts release Manning is because of that bonus due. They are in a tough spot because they just can not pass on Luck as the top pick and that is a hell of a lot of money tied up on one position. The thing is there is a lot of time left before that bonus is due and Peyton may back off on that demand and tutor Luck for one year. It will be interesting.

UM they scored 23 & barley won Lee Evans drops a TD in the end zone to win the game with less than 1 minute left & less than a minute later a all pro kicker misses a chip shot 32 yard field goal.

    why would you bring a guy in here like Flynn to take snaps away from McElroy,we will then find out about McElroy.as for the peyton issue,again IF,theres that word again when it comes to the jets,if he is healthy what do you think it will take to get him,you think the jets are the only team that will be seeking his services,it never is that easy with the jets.As shocking as it might seem to some, there are teams with worse quarterbacks than the jets.

    64, I certainly understand what you mean about desperation moves by this FO (Favre?) But if healthy, and once again I emphasize “IF” Peyton could easily play another 3-4 years and it really couldn’t be classified as desperation. I may not know a lot 64, as shevitcz indicates, but I do know that a healthy Payton manning under center for the NY Jets on opening day 2012 could be the most significant event for this franchise since signing Joe Willie out of Bama in 1964. They will immediately become serious SB contenders even if they stand pat everywhere else. The O line? Yes it needs work but Payton is capable of making it look better just being Payton.

    an average quarterback would have beat Elite Eli today,Tom Terrific today was Tom Average, not Tom Elite.without the evans drop it would have been Ravens.

    Wayne, you make a valid point about the game plan being to complicated for Rex and maybe even for the players. My counterpoint would be that the entire O line, Keller, and Sanchez have been in this system for three full seasons, not to mention pre season and six post season games, Holmes has been in it almost two full seasons and three post season games. As professionals it would be a total embarrassment for any of these players to admit that they were confused with the system or the game plan. As for Rex, maybe he was, but he sure in hell should not have been.

    As I said on another story, joe, Brady winning today was especially impressive in that the injury to his left shoulder was clearly for real and clearly hindered his throwing a lot. He looked like Favre in the season-ending Jet loss to MIA, could barely throw the ball more than 10 yds and barely tried to. And still he put up 23 pts on one of the best D’s in the NFL. But I’ll cut Spicer a break for admitting that he’d be okay with a healthy Peyton because after the SB, something like that could definitely happen. GaryC seems to forget that the last time the Giants won the SB, Woody went out and got Favre. Shevitcz, the problem with your logic is that it’s obvious Rex knows less than the players about the O. I agree, Frank, Rex must go ASAP.

    OK, I’m going to try and bring this thread back to reality. The reality is we’re talking about a man who dedicated his life to the game. A game that wasn’t bigger than him, but a game he was able to conquer week in and week out. That man was Curtis Martin and if he isn’t a Hall of Famer then there’s something wrong with the system. Thanks so much Curtis, I’m a better Jets fan and a man for watching you put your heart out for this team.

    jet fan tom, you made reference to the dodgers moving 3,000 miles away after playing second fiddle to the yankees for so many years,sounds like your suggesting that maybe the green machine should do that to seeing that there looking for a football team out in LaLa land and they are still playing second fiddle to the giants.

    yeah, jet fan tom, woody went out and got favre, I guess that proved a mistake.what acquisitions besides curtis martin have worked for the jets.the new flavor of the month theory doesn’t work or what I have said, you can’t put your all galaxy teams together and have it work like baseball.

    GaryC, I was against the original move to New Jersey, so I’d never object to the Jets moving the hell out of that ugly box they’re playing in now and into their own stadium somewhere in New York City or on Long Island. If the lowly Nets can move from NJ to Brooklyn, the Jets sure can do the right thing at this late date. Out of New York (again) though, no, I’d never be for that. I’d rather see the Rams move back to L.A. And I don’t say I’m for Peyton or someone like that to the Jets — just Campbell or Orton would play Sanchez out of the starting job in 2 exhib games — but that Woody’s more likely to go after him now.

    Joe, Brady was hurt really NOW THAT IS A EXCUSE HE WAS FINE HE JUST PLAYED TERRIBLE & THEY WON DESPITE HIM & HE SAID SO HIMSELF!

    Minister of Propaganda Spicer, who rewrites history as well as the folks in Orwell’s 1984, strikes again. Spicer, Brady has consistently denied that any injury has ever affected his play even when he’s had treatment or even surgery for that injury only days later. But your monstrous need to turn all known reality on its head in defense of “Mark” leads you to conclude that Brady couldn’t have been hurt because that might prove that his play was somewhat off because of injury and that might prove that an elite QB has value and that might prove that we’re losing because we don’t have one. Really, aren’t you shamed of this kind of cowardice? Remind me never to nominate you for a Jets FO job.

    GaryC, re those free agent splashes you and 64 talked about. Like everything else in life, sometime it works, sometimes it don’t work. How did NO acquiring Brees work for them? How did Moss work for NE a few years ago when he all but quit in Oakland? How about Sproles in NO this year. The plain truth of the matter is it just never works well for the NY Jets.Guys like Curtis and Vinny had pretty decent years, but they never translated in to team success, ultimate success.anyway.

    Tom 64, I root for the Jets I could care less about Mark Sanchez if he were to get cut TODAY I would root for WHOEVER took his place. Unlike all of the pro scouts we have on this website I can not after 3 years say for 100% fact that he will not be a good NFL QB. Due to the fact I have seen it take much longer for guys just like him to show ANYTHING!

    Joe, How many times are you going to post the same thing about the Tuna or the thing about Bradshaw. I am still waiting for you to post a intelligent post 1 TIME! Can you do it? Your history says NO.

    Tom 64, Minister of Propaganda that is a good one you flip flop like a politican in a election year & Gary C would back me up on this it is amazing how much you flip flop.

    Well, Spicer, at least you’re in the ballpark of football sanity now. I don’t think it’s impossible that Sanchez will become a great QB, I just think it’s about 25% likely. He’s basically had the same season for 3 yrs and I have to say some of his biggest problems — fumbling, accuracy, seeing the field, and seeing guys coming over the middle to make picks — may have gotten WORSE last yr. But I agree with you on rooting for THE TEAM. The biggest Same Ol’ Jets mentality is fans who get caught up with favorites, like Ira (to my shock) is still doing with J-Co and Edwards. I’d turn the team upside to build a long-term winner and I’d bench, cut, or trade anybody I had to in order to do it. So at least we’re finally on the same page about that.

    You will periodically see my name EVERYWHERE about the internet supporting the NY JETS. because when you are a JET you are a JET all the way. If YOU had gone to as many games as I had, and were a team guy like I was brought up to be, well you would know no other way. I will go to this website at Canton and attempt to help the quintessential JET, Mr Curtis Martin.His team work on the field, his old school attitude, and his work off the field make him a member of every Hall of Fame. I am concerned before I even go there that I will be forced to become a member of Facebook or Twitter in order to do so, and that I will not do. If so, why are we being forced to become a member of either of those places in order to stand up for this wonderful man

    Curtis Martin is the second best running back ever to live, the only one better is Walter Payton and he is in the Hall of Fame so lets give a heave for Curtis!
