Broadway Jets recaps minicamp and the week on Twitter, including a Carl anniversary and Dan Feeney’s big night out.
Mandatory minicamp highlighted this past week in New York Jets land, which means two extremely important things:
- There is a Mekhi Becton-sized amount of content to sift through.
- Jamal Adams is threatening a holdout.
Your favorite memeologist (please credit Michael Nania for this term), NYJ Matt and myself, Mike Levy, otherwise known as NYJ Mike, dive into all things Jets in the latest episode of the Broadway Jets Podcast.
From Elijah Moore’s continuing impressive play to Zach Wilson’s savvy appearance at the quarterback position in just his second month as a pro, episode No. 44 sifts through it all.
We also discuss:
- Denzel Mims playing with the second-team offense.
- Tua Tagovailoa throwing an interception for every game the Jets won in 2016. (The number is five, by the way; Tua threw five picks in practice that mirrors that of Richard Todd in the 1982 AFC championship game.)
- Are the Jets really going to enter this season with Luke Falk Jr. as the backup quarterback?
- How Joe Douglas can upgrade the roster before the season.
This past week in Jets Twitter was also an interesting one, capped off by Dan Feeney’s big night out on Long Island.
A Step Brothers moment
Quinnen Williams and Mekhi Becton have suddenly become Step Brothers 2.0.

Saleh on Feeney
Matt and head coach Robert Saleh had a productive conversation via a season ticket holder conference call.
Breaking News: I was able to ask Robert Saleh a question
Q: How would you rate Dan Feeneys Beer Chugging abilities
“It’s impressive to chug a beer and smash it on his head, I haven’t done that since I was 22. He’s been awesome and a ball of energy since he’s been here”#Jets

Of course Saleh has experience in that area. After all, he’s one of the toughest SOBs of all time, Stone Cold style.

Mangold is behind it
Nick Mangold likes the idea of a Jets Hard Knocks-type documentary. What could possibly go wrong with that Rex Ryan bunch?

Monday was the anniversary of Carl dying on Curb Your Enthusiasm. Forever immortalized, Carl surely wasn’t the first and won’t be the last.

Cam Newton’s struggles
New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton did not have a great time at a particular practice this past week.

Dan Feeney’s big night out
Finally, Long Island native Greg Van Roten got the boys together for another New York Islanders playoff game. Sure, the Isles lost Game 3 to the Tampa Bay Lightning, but that didn’t stop Feeney and company from doing their usual thing.

And by the way, did anybody take note of the innocent father-son-looking duo who found themselves surrounded by maniac Jets?
Cracking up at the idea that this guy bought great seats for him and his son and Dan Feeney is smashing Bud Lights next to him

Due to the fact this is the first Broadway Jets post with Jets X Factor, I will leave you with a bonus hypothetical:
Mekhi Becton opts out for 2021, but so does Russell Wilson. Do you accept this made-up scenario? One wonders what the former Jamal Adams fans-turned not-so-friendly Adams folks would choose.
