The New York Jets and Giants still don’t know when they will be able to come home.
This isn’t particularly surprising to my vantage point. There was a city bus that was stuck in the middle of a busy avenue for more than 10 hours today. (It’s gone now.) 20 inches of snow fell in Manhattan and more in some of the outlying areas, like New Jersey where the teams will fly into.
The Giants will have another team meeting at 6 ET to give a status update. For now, they are in Appleton, Wisconsin preparing for the Redskins. The team learned from their last misadventure on the road against the Vikings, and brought material with them to prepare, according to Mike Garafolo of the Newark-Star Ledger. (Giants P.R. maven Pat Hanlon tweeted the picture above of a team meal.)
Big Blue needs to get their minds right before long because they are very much alive in the playoff picture. As we said last night, they are in with a win and a Packers loss next week.
The Jets are scheduled to leave Chicago at 7 p.m. ET, but that time has already been pushed back. Everything remains “weather permitting.” The team is having their normal Monday meetings and film review while in Chicago.
“[We’re] pretty much just staying in the room, resting, watching movies, getting room service, and typical stuff you do when you have nothing to do,” LaDainian Tomlinson said.
