Their Previous Meeting: The last time these two teams met, it was another forgettable preseason game courtesy of Tony Sparano. The offense had yet to score a touchdown during the entire preseason game and the streak continued into the first quarter of this contest with neither team scoring any points. But leave it to Greg McElroy to score the team’s first touchdown on a short six yard pass to Terrance Ganaway. But the Jets’ lead would be brief as the Eagles scored on consecutive drives via Bryce Brown and Mardy Gilyard who Trent Edwards found for the 31 yard score. As the first half expired, Nick Folk tacked on a 58 yard field goal to narrow the gap. The Matt Simms-led offense never really took off as both teams shut each other out in the third until the Eagles scored two touchdowns in the fourth. The Jets lost the Bollinger Bowl 10-28.

Another week filled full of ‘controversy’ came as no surprise in the land of the New York Jets. You just about had everything you could imagine ranging from opinion pieces on Rex Ryan’s coaching strategies reporters hanging other reporters out to dry. While we still have more questions than answers, tonight we move one step closer to solving those mysteries with Week One right around the corner.
The starters will sit while the back-ups look to leave their all on the field in hopes of impressing the coaching staff and earning a roster spot. A lot of these guys will go on to bounce around the league while others may never play a down professionally again. This game means a lot to a lot of players on the bubble right now and perhaps for a few hours we can put aside the war of words and show them some appreciation, win or lose.
