Mangini Names His Running Back!!!


With the success Leon Washington is having, reporters hounded Eric Mangini this afternoon if he would be considered for the starting job this week vs. the Cleveland Browns. Here's how the press conference went:

Reporter: Coach, In the last three games Leon Washington has nearly 300 yards rushing vs. Kevan Barlow's 100 yard rushing over the same time frame. Is it safe to say that Leon Washington is your starting running back now?

Mangini: Well, we also have Cedric Houston and Derrick Blaylock to consider too. Every week our runningbacks will have an opportunity in practice prove who will be the starting runningback.

Reporter: Yes, but coach, Washington is electric out there and provides the spart it looks like the Jets really need.

Mangini: You also need to consider what a professional Kevan Barlow is and how he manages the game and how tough a back he is. There are a lot of factors other than yards and "spark" as you say. Plus Houston and Blaylock are in the running as well. It will be a game time decision.

Reporter: How close is Curtis Martin to coming back?

Mangini: He is fairly close. He needs to be cleared by the doctors and then we'll work him out and go from there.

Reporter: Hypothetically, if Curtis did come back and he was in the same condition he was say, in the 2002 season where he rushed for 1,600 plus yards, would he be considered the starter?

Mangini: Well, with Cedric Houston coming along, Barlow's tough running style and the success of Washington we'd have to see who would battle it out between the two. Plus you cannot forget about Blaylock. It would have to be a game time decision.

Reporter: What if Martin comes back, he is 2002 condition and he has bionic legs, would he be considered the starting runningback?

Mangini: It would between Houston, Washington, Barlow, Blaylock and Martin again.

Reporter: Consider if Houston was not on the roster, Leon Washington and Kevan Barlow are dead, you got Curtis in 2002 condition with bionic legs and he is morphed with Barry Sanders, would Martin be considered the starter?

Mangini: We'd have to create a paper mache runningback so Curtis would have someone to compete for the starting job with. And only after a week of practice would we consider a starter. We had a paper mache running back up in New England and he was a pretty tough competitor. Plus I wouldn't put it past Barlow to come back from the dead. So between Paper Mache, Curtis and Back from the Dead Barlow, it would be a game time decision.

Reporter: Who would start if the only two players you had were Back from the Dead Barlow and Paper Mache, who would you start?

Mangini: Well, considering coming back from the dead is usually not that easy to bounce back from, I would have to say Paper Mache.

Reporter: So it is Paper Mache as your running back?

Mangini: Yes, Paper Mache.

You forgot to throw me into the mix...I am on the practice squad.

I hate you for forgetting about me.

Unruly Jets Fan said...

Oh yeah, you would definately be in the running Blair. I totally forgot about you.

Fakehead said...

I just made some official merchandise for this site. It will be ready in a few weeks, but here is a hint, you can bring it to work. (No UR, it's not a dead prostitute!)

Unruly Jets Fan said...

Cool...and how did you know I was thinking that???

Would it be a "Back from the Dead" prostitute?

LOL!!!

I look forward to it!!!

I've actually been checking out other blogs to make ours a little better.

That is what inspired this type of blog here. You should just fart around on some other blogs too just to get ideas. Some people but YouTube movies on them and such. It is pretty cool.

At any rate, look forward to my present!

I used to use YouTube on Subway Serial but everyone complained that it was slowing the page loading down...you can however put a you tube video inside an individual post. It works out a lot better.

Do you want me to put up the standing and stuff on the sidebar?

Let me know and I'll hook this shit up whichever way you want it.I haven't done it myself because you are the bossman around here UJF.

Do I get a shirt too?

Fakehead said...

UR and GF, it's not a shirt. Second, UR, stop typing "LOL", it's gay. Third, GF, let's do up this site like a champ, maybe I'll even type another blog at some point.

Beat it!
Go Jets!

Unruly Jets Fan said...

GF...definately pimp this blog like a mofo.

I may be the bossman around here but all my employees have free artistic reign to let their creative juices fly.

Anyhow GF, feel free to put standings, pictures or whatever. The more bling the better.

Can you put a little button on the side that when you press it it makes farting noises? I want one of those. Fakehead, why dont you get on that. Gadfly, since you are the resident tech guy around here, I want you to build a "man cave" for me somewhere towards the bottom. This will be a room with a TV and a refrigerator that I can chill out in when I need to take a break.

Ok, get to work. Chop chop!

Nice job on the blog revamping!

Shea Gadfly said...

I'm still waiting to hear back from a plumber about installing a crapper...

Unruly Jets Fan said...

Hey your pimpage has dissapeared.

Shea Gadfly said...

Look down...I'll fix it or maybe I'll just delete it altogether.

Unruly Jets Fan said...

You are the Mac Daddy of pimping out Blogs! You should open up your own Blog Shop and call it Orange County Blogger.

Shea Gadfly said...

That's just how I do...

Unruly Jets Fan said...

Awesome Job Gaddy!!!

I love the He-Man figure. Looks just like Fakehead.

I actually just laughed out loud when I logged on here!

*Hey, I assume the fart button is in the works?

Fakehead said...

Next thing you know UR will want GF to set it up so contributors get 10 bucks every time they make a comment. The man can only do so much, UR! That being said, what is being done about the 10 bucks idea?

Blair Thomas said...

$10...I'm going to comment every ten minutes!!!

Shea Gadfly said...

FH's avtar is a Faker Head He-Man action figure. Interesting to note he too was a Jets fan. But how the "f" did he fool anyone into thinking he's the actual He-Man? I mean he's frickin' smurf colored blue??? Either way, he is the perfect embodiment of FH's blog persona. I mean, did you check out the pecs on that guy!

PS - Yo, UJF I set it up so you'll get an email everytime either myself or FH comments...and if anyone else ever comes on here. We gotta work on that...it's time to go trolling and lure some people back here.

Unruly Jets Fan said...

I always go to nj.com. If you click on "Forums", there is a Jets Forum.

Click on that. Everytime there is a new post I let them know about it. They have been here. One guy said it sucked. But a few guys liked it.

You guys should check that out too. Forums are a good way to also get ideas for blogs.

Fakehead said...

Dude, fuck the guy who said it sucked. Tell him to fucking stop wasting time in internet "forums" and get a life and go outside. Speaking of forums, UR, the only "forums" you should be checking out online are porn forums.

I'm sorry but I could give a shit less if people come to this blog. Do I want to hear people berate the setup or the megapixles of this blog????? No, because anyone who criticizes it has nothing better to do with their life besides post comments on people's blogs. It's all so fucking dumb.

If somebody disagrees with what we've said (like I say Mangina sucks and the commentor says no he doesn't) then of course they should comment, that's all well and good. But if somebody is going to critique our blog site setup or say we don't know what we are talking about at all then they can go fuck themselves. We are fans, they are fans. We are not sports writers or players. If Mike and the Mad Dog says we have no clue, then maybe (not even really) I would give them some credibility. Or, if an actual NFL player said we are clueless, then fine, I agree. But if a normal person says we clueless then I hope they die of cancer, because their opinion is just like mine, IT DOESN'T MEAN SHIT to anyone. If they don't like this blog then they should start their own Jets blog. Fuck them.

Sorry, I'm in a bad mood because it's Sunday morning and I've been at work since 9 am, and I'm tired. I think I am not the right person for blogs either, did I mention that?

Beat it ...

Oh yeah, Let's Go Jets! I hope I get to see some of the game today, but I have to go to Pier 1 and Target if I have time.
