NEW YORK -- One of the great joys of being in Manhattan the morning after a major local sports event is grabbing a coffee and taking a walk to the nearest newsstand to see how the story is being played in the papers.
Before sunrise, I headed out to gather the early editions and see what they had to after the New York Jets' maddening season came to an end.
Here's a roundup of the headlines and stories from Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins.
The New York Post delivered a double-whammy. On the front, photos of head coach Eric Mangini and Brett Favre flanked the headline "Dump 'em: Losers Mangini, Favre must go." On the back page was a shot from behind of Favre, sitting on the turf, above the headline "Phinished!"
Columnist Steve Serby wants Mangini to be fired.
Beat reporter Brian Costello is ready to begin the autopsy.
The New York Daily News called them "Gag Green" above a photo of Favre on his back. The second headline reads "Woody fumes as Jets choke away season; Favre, Mangini could be goners."
Jets owner Woody Johnson was uncharacteristically candid about his anger, reports Rich Cimini.
Columnist Vic Ziegel writes about Chad Pennington's sweet homecoming.
Columnist Gary Myers lobbies for Bill Cowher.
Newsday was disappointingly less emphatic, choosing to ask questions. On its front page was "Jets Out -- Is Favre Next?" On the back page was "Jets departures?"
Columnist Bob Glauber is decisive, calling for a new head coach and quarterback.
Mangini still expects to be back for 2009, reports Katie Strang.
The broadsheet New York Times only teased the Jets on the front page, but on the sports section ran a half-page photo of Favre getting hit by Dolphins safety Yeremiah Bell under this headline: "The Bitter End."
