Jets All-Pro DE Schmoolie Jackson on the Jets Schedule Conflicting with Holidays
So not long ago when the NFL schedule was released, the Jets caused a fuss because two of their home games coincided with two of the holiest Jewish holidays. They complained to the league office and got one of their games bumped up from a 4:15pm ET start on Sunday to 1:00pm ET. From what I understand, the league office was moved by an impassioned speech by Jets All-Pro DE Schmoolie Jackson. Check it out:
He had me at Bubby. Gotta feel for a guy who had to miss his cousin’s bar mitzvah, you know? Thanks to my Uncle Al for passing that hilarious Jimmy Kimmel clip along. By the way, I’ve heard that Jackson wasn’t too happy when the Jets brought on Mangini and switched to the 3-4 defense since the 4-3 fit his style much better.
