It looks like S Jamal Adams will be the only player representing the New York Jets in this season's Pro Bowl. As of December 4th, 2019, he leads all NFL defensive backs with 142,676 votes. Adams, who was also selected to the Pro Bowl last year, was named AFC Defensive Player of the Week in Week 10 when he recorded two sacks against the Giants and returned a fumble for a touchdown.
If there’s one game remaining this season that head coach Adam Gase would love to win at all costs, it’s Sunday’s showdown against his former team, the Miami Dolphins. The Jets were expected to walk over Miami in Week 9, but instead they became the first team to lose to the winless Dolphins. The Dolphins, who were supposedly tanking this season to get the number one draft pick, have won two more games since then and are just one game behind the Gang Green in the division standings.
If there was ever any doubt about Adam Gase leaving a mark in the New York Jets history books, he has already accomplished something that none of his predecessors ever could. Gase has become the first head coach in the NFL history to lose to two teams with a record of 0-7 or worse in the same season. Let that sink in…
The New York Jets made it three wins in a row, as they steamrolled past the Oakland Raiders, 34-3. Adam Gase's team totally outclassed Oakland, making them look like they did not belong on the same field. The Jets reached the 400 yard mark of total offense for the second week in a row, while the defense limited Oakland to only 208 yards and 10 first downs. QB Sam Darnold had yet another impressive performance, completing 20 of 29, 315 yards, 2 TD, 0 INT. He also ran for a score in the second quarter.
The Jets will get a chance to extend their winning streak to three when they face the Oakland Raiders (6-4) at MetLife Stadium. The Raiders have a winning streak of their own, as they have won three in a row and are in the second place in the AFC West. So, after beating two pretty weak teams who had won three games combined, they Gang Green will have a real test on their hands.
The New York Jets made it two wins in a row, as they defeated the Washington Redskins, 34-17, and improved to 3-7. QB Sam Darnold threw career high four touchdown passes leading the offense that gained 400 total yards for the first time this season. S Jamal Adams had another huge game, recording 3.0 sacks, as the defense limited Washington to only 54 rushing yards.
S Jamal Adams has been named AFC Defensive Player of the Week. He recorded two sacks, including the forced fumble he returned for a touchdown, in the 34-27 win against the New York Giants last Sunday. Adams also led the team with 9 tackles (8 solo) and also recorded one pass defense.
S Jamal Adams sacked Daniel Jones early in the second half, grabbed the ball out of the quarterback's hands, then raced 25 yards for the touchdown to give the Jets a 21-13 lead. This score turned out to be the difference, as the Gang Green defeated their crosstown rivals, 34-27. Adams also had another sack earlier in the game and had a team best 9 tackles (8 solo).
It feels like the Kotite era all over again. It's been 23 years since the Jets coached by Rich Kotite finished the 1996 season with their worst record ever, 1-15. Today's embarrassment in Miami, against the winless Dolphins who many thought were just tanking the season to get the number one draft pick, is the rock bottom all over again. These Jets are bad, they are Kotite bad.
The New York Jets dropped to 1-6 after yet another bad performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Although he did not look as bad as six days ago, QB Sam Darnold still managed to throw three interceptions against a defense that had four interceptions in their previous seven games. Darnold now has seven interceptions in the last two games. He has thrown 5 TDs and 8 INTs this season.
Following Monday’s disastrous performance against the New England Patriots, all eyes will be on QB Sam Darnold when the Jets take on the Jaguars (3-4) this Sunday. Will we see the Darnold that tortured the Cowboys two weeks ago or the ghost seeing Darnold who threw four interceptions against the Pats?
One week after playing arguably the best game of his NFL career QB Sam Darnold followed by the absolutely worst performance against the New England Patriots. The Gang Green got shut out, 33-0, against their division rival, as Darnold went 11 of 32, 86 yards, 4 INT. He also lost a fumble, bringing his turnover total in this game to five, the most he's ever had as a pro or in NCAA.
Sam Darnold's masterful performance against the Dallas Cowboys did not go unnoticed. He was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week, the first NFL award of his career. After missing the previous three games due to mononucleosis, Darnold completed 23 of 32 pass attempts (71.9 percent) for 338 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT to propel the Jets toward a 24-22 upset win over the Cowboys.
QB Sam Darnold returned on Sunday and instantly made the struggling Jets look like a real NFL team. The anemic offense, rated last in the league before this game, gained 382 yards against the Dallas Cowboys, propelling the Gang Green to a 24-22 win. Darnold was 23 of 32, 338 yards, 2 TD and 1 INT, 113.8 QB rating.
The New York Jets will face an uphill battle this Sunday when they take on the Dallas Cowboys at MetLife Stadium. The Cowboys (3-2) lost 2 games in a row, while the Gang Green are yet to win a single game this season. Losing another one this weekend will bring up memories of 1996, as the Jets have not had a 0-5 start since that disastrous 1-15 season.
Adam Gase's Jets were supposed to come out rested and re-energized following bye week, instead they looked as flat as in the previous two games, falling 31-6 to the Philadelphia Eagles. The Gang Green is now 0-4, clearly on the way to a 0-6, or even a 0-7 start. It's hard to win games with a 3rd string quarterback and even harder when your offensive line gives up 10 sacks to a team that registered a total of 3 sacks in the previous 4 games. If you think that Sam Darnold led Jets would have fared better, you're most likely mistaken.
It's only Week 2 but it feels like yet another Jets season is as good as over. After choking down the stretch in Week 1 against the Bills, the Gang Green were hardly ever in the game against the Browns tonight. As QB Sam Darnold was out with illness, Trevor Siemian started and looked atrocious before suffering an ankle injury in the second quarter. His replacement, QB Luke Falk, looked better but horrible cagey playcalling along with the defense giving up an 89-yard TD pass, never allowed the Jets to get back in this game.
The Adam Gase era will officially begin on September 8th when the Gang Green hosts the Buffalo Bills in the 2019 season opener. Then, in Week 2, the Jets will play their first prime time game, as they host the Cleveland Browns on Monday Night Football in what is expected to be another Darnold vs. Mayfield showdown. The bye week will come two weeks later, in Week 4. On October 21st, the Jets will be involved in another Monday Night contest, this time against the Patriots. The battle of New York will take place in Week 10 when the Jets take on their crosstown rivals, the New York Giants. The third and final prime time appearance will come in Week 15 when the Jets travel to Baltimore to take on the Ravens on Thursday Night Football.
One of the worst head coaching tenures in Jets history is finally over. The Jets have informed Todd Bowles that he will not be back in 2019, just a few hours after another embarrassing loss to the Patriots, 38-3. GM Mike Maccagnan, however, will remain with the team and be involved in the search for Bowles' replacement.
It was yet another game to forget, just like entire Todd Bowles' tenure with the Jets. Even when the Gang Green took a 16-0 lead in the second quarter, most of us just couldn't help but think that the Same Old Jets would still find a way to lose. And they sure did. As the Jets had to settle for one field goal after another, the Titans slowly but surely kept cutting the Gang Green's advantage before eventually taking the lead with 36 seconds remaining in the game. Then, it was the expected Same Old Jets interception to end yet another disgraceful performance.
Another week, another disgraceful performance, another loss and Todd Bowles still has his job. If the pathetic showing against the Bears two weeks ago was bad, Bowles and Co. took it to an even lower level of ineptitude against the Bills in Week 10. The Bills, dead last In the division, had nothing to lose and came out fighting. First possession – two plays, 75 yards, touchdown. The Jets, on the other hand, were probably already thinking of the upcoming bye week. Once again there was no fire, no adjustments, no real game plan. It was Same Old Jets, Todd Bowles flavor.
This Sunday afternoon was just like many others lately. The New York Jets took the field only to once again lose, showing absolutely nothing worth of notice on both sides of the ball. As the Gang Green suffered their second loss in a row, falling farther below .500, it became pretty obvious that this was shaping up to be yet another losing season. Bowles' third losing season in a row. The Jets lose. We're used to it by now. It's not that they lose but how they lose. If they don't turn the ball over, then they simply cannot execute. If they do execute, they commit a dumb penalty that moves them back. There's always something. It's the Same Old Jets again and again.
The verdict is still out on the No. 3 overall pick in the draft Sam Darnold. So far – maybe not so good – but definitely not bad. It's tough to pluck a fresh-faced rookie from college and expect his baptism by fire in the NFL to be seamless, particularly on rebuilding team like the Jets. However, Darnold has comported himself fairly well, although his three interceptions over his first pair of games give us cause for pause. New York's play calling has been wise in terms of executing a balanced attack and not putting too much of the offensive onus on Darnold.
The New York Jets will begin their 2018 campaign on September 10th in Detroit on Monday Night Football. This will be the first of their two scheduled primetime appearances in the entire season. The other one will be on Thursday, September 20th, in Week 3, against the Cleveland Browns.
People are calling the fourth quarter of the Jets/Dolphins game a meltdown, at least for the Jets, and they have good reason to. The Jets came as close as humanly possible to walking away with a victory.
When the Jets face the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, their potential success will primarily come down to Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire. Or rather, one would expect Todd Bowles to give Powell and McGuire priority.
What will it take for the New York Jets to become a winning team again? That question goes to everyone becomes it doesn't seem like Coach Todd Bowles knows the answer, so maybe it is time to reach out to the fans.
The wait is over as the league has finally released its schedule for the upcoming season. The New York Jets will open on the road in Buffalo when they take on the Bills on September 10th. The first home game will be in Week 3 when the Jets host another division rival, the Miami Dolphins.
It looks like QB Geno Smith is about to get another chance as a starting quarterback in the NFL. The Jets announced earlier today that the former 2nd round draft pick will start on Sunday against the Ravens in place of QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. The Jets are 1-5 and Fitzpatrick has been absolutely abysmal this season, leading the league with 11 interceptions. He had a Jets record tying performance of 6 picks against the Chiefs in Week 3.
It seemed like the Jets came out to play on the opening day, as Todd Bowles’ team took a quick 7-0 lead and were on the verge of scoring again. Unfortunately, it all started going downhill from there on. The Gang Green failed to capitalize on the Bengals’ turnover, despite getting the ball on their opponent’s 35-yard line. PK Nick Folk’s blocked field goal attempt kept the score at 7-0 and seemingly changed the momentum.
The New York Jets will open the 2016 season at home against the Cincinnati Bengals, the NFL announced today as they released 2016 schedule. In Week 2 the Gang Green will travel to Buffalo to take on Rex Ryan's Bills on Thursday Night. The Jets will have four more primetime games on their schedule. In Week 6 they will take on Arizona on the road on MNF. Then, in Weeks 12 and 13, Todd Bowles' team will take on the Pats (Sunday Night) and the Colts (MNF). Finally, the Jets will host Miami in a Saturday game in Week 16. The bye week will come in Week 11.
Three players of the New York Jets made this season's Pro Bowl roster: CB Darrelle Revis, DE Muhammad Wilkerson and WR Brandon Marshall. C Nick Mangold and RB Chris Ivory are first alternates.
The Todd Bowles era will officially begin on September 13th against the Cleveland Browns, as the NFL released their regular season schedule tonight. In Week 2 the Gang Green will have their first primetime appearance of the season when they travel to Indy to take on the Colts on MNF. In Week 4 the Jets will travel to London to face the Miami Dolphins.
C Nick Mangold became the only Jet selected to the Pro Bowl this season. It's his 6th Pro Bowl selection in the last seven seasons. Mangold is now tied with C Kevin Mawae, who started in six consecutive Pro Bowls as a Jet. OT Winston Hill was selected eight times from 1964-73.
Well, it didn't take long. QB Michael Vick had a bad game against the Buffalo Bills, instantly prompting Rex Ryan to name QB Geno Smith a starter against the Dolphins on Monday Night. And so the circus, that is the 2014 New York Jets, continues to roll with new twists that just keep making this organization look more and more pathetic.
S Jaiquawn Jarrett's tremendous performance on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers earned him the AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors. Jarrett, who started in place of the first round pick S Calvin Pryor, had 2 interceptions, a sack and recovered a fumble. All three statistics were the first in his NFL career.
Well, it did not take long. QB Geno Smith was finally benched after cementing his name in the Jets' history books as the only Gang Green quarterback who finished a game with a zero QB rating. QB Michael Vick, whom the Jets signed in the offseason to supposedly fight for the starting job, will start next game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Gang Green won their season opener yesterday, barely squeaking by the Oakland Raiders, 19-14. In a game where they pretty much dominated, Rex Ryan's team still managed to trail for most of the first half and then allowed Oakland to get within one score. It should have never been that close. The Jets faced a rookie quarterback and predictably limited the Raiders to only 11 first downs and 158 total yards.
The New York Jets will host the Oakland Raiders in the season opener on September 7th. Then, in Week 2 the Gang Green will travel to Green Bay to take on the Packers. In Week 3 the Jets will host the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football.
After being snubbed for Pro Bowl, DT Sheldon Richardson finally got the recognition he deserved by capturing the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year Award. He started every game and finished with 3.5 sacks and 77 tackles, which is third-most in the league among defensive linemen.
After being snubbed in the Pro Bowl voting, DE Muhammad Wilkerson got his redemption today as he was selected to the second All-Pro team. Wilkerson had a tremendous year for the Jets. He registered 64 tackles (43 solo), 1 interception and team high 10.5 sacks. He also forced 2 fumbles and defended 3 passes.
PK Nick Folk, who has not missed a field goal attempt all season, was named the AFC's Special Teams Player of the Week. He converted all four of his field goal tries, from 39, 21, 47 and 45 yards, during Sunday's win against the New Orleans Saints. Folk also had four kickoff touchbacks. This is the second time Folk wins the AFC Special Teams award this season. He also won it after hitting the game-winning field goal to defeat the Bucs on opening day.
QB Geno Smith's impressive performance against the Atlanta Falcons did not go unnoticed, as he was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week. Smith completed 16 of 20 passes for 199 yards, 3 TD and 0 INT. He also led the team in the final two minutes for his second fourth-quarter comeback of the season. He has become just the second rookie quarterback in the past 20 seasons to earn a player of the week award in his first five weeks. Redskins QB Robert Griffin III earned the honor last season.
The Jets needed a boost following their blowout loss against the Tennessee Titans and they got from their rookie QB Geno Smith who played a mistake free game, leading the Gang Green to a 30-28 win against the Atlanta Falcons. For the first time in his five-game NFL career Smith did not turn the ball over, which was the key against Atlanta's high-powered air attack. Smith's confidence spread around the team. The defense, which is ranked #1 in the league after this game, finally came up with a turnover. Special teams that had hardly provided any help before this game finally did a good job on the returns. And then PK Nick Folk just continued being the team's folk hero, kicking the winning field goal as time expired.
It's been a while since the New York Jets started a season with expectations being so low. Most experts predicted the Gang Green would win 5-6 games at most; some went as far as anticipating a 3-13 season. The Jets went into the season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as 3-point underdogs. Not a single "expert" on the entire ESPN panel picked the Gang Green to win this one. The Jets, however, had different ideas, as a solid showing from rookie QB Geno Smith, tremendous play from the young defensive line, and a few dumb mistakes from their opponent ensured that the Jets started a season with a win for the fourth time during Rex Ryan's era.
WR Santonio Holmes is active for today's season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He's expected to play on a limited basis against former Jets CB Darrelle Revis. Last season Holmes missed 12 games with a foot injury and did not play in preseason.
Although most of us have expected it, the New York Jets made it official this morning - QB Geno Smith will start in the season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The last time the Gang Green started a rookie quarterback in Week 1 was 2009, when it was QB Mark Sanchez, whom Smith is replacing. Despite failing his final test in the preseason game against the Giants, Smith will start because Sanchez is unable to go due to the shoulder injury he suffered in the same game.
Well, the good thing is it's finally over, the Jets' horrible season that is. The Gang Green lost to the Buffalo Bills, 28-9, to finish the season 6-10, their first losing season under Rex Ryan. Once again QB Mark Sanchez, who started in place of injured QB Greg McElroy, struggled immensely, throwing his signature pick six and also losing a fumble.
In a rather surprising twist of events, the New York Jets have announced that QB Mark Sanchez will start on Sunday in the season finale against the Buffalo Bills. QB Greg McElroy, who started last week against the San Diego Chargers and was supposed to start against Buffalo, reportedly suffered a concussion. The team discovered McElroy's condition earlier today after he experienced severe headaches while lifting weights. McElroy was sacked 11 times and suffered an abdominal injury in the loss against San Diego.
CB Antonio Cromartie and S LaRon Landry will represent the New York Jets at the Pro Bowl, as they both made the AFC squad as backups. Following the season-ending injury to CB Darrelle Revis, Cromartie became the Jets' premier shutdown corner and has performed admirably. He's defended 13 passes, intercepted 3 and returned one of his interceptions for a touchdown so far this season.
It all started pretty well for QB Greg McElroy, who made his first NFL start against the Chargers this afternoon. McElroy led the Jets to two early scoring drives, as the Gang Green took a 14-7 lead. Unfortunately, it all went downhill from there on. McElroy's indecisiveness and offensive line's ineptitude led to 11 sacks for the Chargers, who rattled the first time starter and took over the game in the second half.
Well, just when you thought it could not get any worse, just when you thought it could not get any uglier, the Same Old Jets found a new way to embarrass themselves on the national stage. Rex Ryan's team had to win the remaining three games and get some help from other teams to earn a playoff berth, which they never deserved to begin with, but last night's abysmal showing ended all hopes they might have had to make it to the postseason.
The New York Jets made it two in a row on Sunday, as they rushed for over 160 yards on the way to a 17-10 win against the Jacksonville Jaguars. This was exactly what the Jets needed to take pressure off struggling QB Mark Sanchez. Sanchez once again committed a turnover when he fumbled in the first half, but that's pretty much where his mistakes ended. He was 12 of 19 for 111 yards, 0 TD, 0 INT. The Gang Green really didn't need more from him, as RB Shonn Greene and RB Bilal Powell ran for 78 and 77 yards respectively and each scored a touchdown.
The struggling New York Jets needed a spark and they got it when Rex Ryan finally did what he should have done weeks ago, as he benched QB Mark Sanchez and replaced him with QB Greg McElroy. The move paid off instantly when McElroy led the Gang Green to the game winning score on the first possession of his NFL career. He didn't put up impressive numbers, finishing the game 5 of 7 for 29 yards, 1 TD, but his arrival reenergized the seemingly lifeless team and put the fans back into the game.
The New York Jets showed some signs of life un Sunday, as they earned a road win against the St. Louis Rams, 27-13. Just when most experts and fans, myself included, had written them off, QB Mark Sanchez and Co. finally played a mistake free game. Granted, it was against the lowly Rams, but considering the team's disarray just a week ago, this was definitely a step in the right direction.
So much for the talk about coming off bye week with a different mindset and still making the playoffs - the Jets suffered another blowout loss in Seattle, as the offense once again failed to score any points. For the third time this season the Gang Green lost by 21 points or more and dropped to 3-6, following a 3-3 start.
The New York Jets quarterbacks, Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow, finished first and second in the NFL's most overrated players poll conducted by the Sports Illustrated among 180 league players. Tebow was a runaway winner with 34% of the vote, while Sanchez shared the second place with Dallas' QB Tony Romo - both received 8% of the vote. Rounding out the top five in the overrated poll were Philadelphia's QB Michael Vick (4%), and Baltimore's LB Ray Lewis (3%).
The Jets tried their best, they almost did it, but their effort just wasn't enough to overcome the New England Patriots. The Gang Green had a 3-point lead with two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, but first the defense allowed the Pats to tie the game and take it to overtime, and then QB Mark Sanchez fumbled the game away in the extra period.
RB Shonn Greene ran for 161 yards and 3 touchdowns, QB Mark Sanchez played a mistake free game, as the New York Jets routed the Indianapolis Colts, 35-9, and moved back up to .500. The defense came to play as well, creating four turnovers and limiting the Colts to just 27% on third downs and only 41 rushing yards. These seemed like the throwback Jets' of Rex Ryan's first two seasons in New York - a powerful running attack with a serviceable quarterback whose job was to make plays from time to time and avoid mistakes.
In the end the New York Jets pulled out an overtime win in Miami, 23-20, unfortunately that was the only positive they could take out of this game. Both defense and offense struggled tremendously throughout the contest and to make things even worse - the Gang Green lost CB Darrelle Revis, arguably their best player, for the season with a torn ACL.
On the day when the New York Jets retired Curtis Martin's #28, the Gang Green's offense scored four touchdowns, erasing all memories of the poor preseason where they managed to score just one in four games. Special teams and defense scored as well, as the Jets utterly destroyed the Buffalo Bills, 48-28, setting a new season opener scoring record.
Tebowmania will get in full swing on September 9th when the New York Jets host the Buffalo Bills in the season opener. Then, in Week 2, the Jets will travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers. In Week 5 the Gang Green will host the Houston Texans in a Monday Night Football showdown. The next primetime game will come in Week 12 when the Jets host the Patriots on Thanksgiving Night.
CB Darrelle Revis became the only Jet this season to be selected to the annual All-Pro team. Revis received 48 votes, 2 votes shy from being a unanimous pick. This is Revis' third straight All-Pro selection.
This was another must win, although the Jets would not have made the playoffs anyway if they had won, but for the third straight week the Gang Green simply forgot to show up, losing to Miami, 19-17. As the final seconds of the Jets' disappointing season were ticking off the clock, WR Santonio Holmes was sitting on the bench after being taken out of the game by the Jets' coaching staff. This was a fitting end to this disastrous season that started with Super Bowl promises and ended with a 3-game losing streak and reported locker room turmoil afterwards.
This wasn't just another must win game with a playoff berth on the line, but another must win game against the cross-town rivals, the New York Giants, whose season also depended on the outcome of this contest. All the hype, pressure, trashtalking, big expectations in what was probably the biggest, most anticipated game of the season - they lost it, just like many Jets teams before them. These were the Same Old Jets all over again. The Same Old Jets that comfortably led two AFC Championship Games, among many other must-wins, only to find another way to lose.
Some people wonder where the SOJ (Same ol’ Jets) mantra comes from. Well, unfortunately you don’t have to look much further than last week’s abysmal performance. This was their latest display of putrid football when they needed to play their best. We have seen the Jets bounce back from this mess before. We’ve also seen them completely fall apart. What the end of the 2011 season will look like is anyone’s guess. Here’s a look at some other recent Week 15 collapses.
In what was another game of high hopes and expectations, another must win, the New York Jets laid yet another egg, getting thoroughly embarrassed by the Philadelphia Eagles, 45-19. Just like in Week 3, or just like in Week 9, when the Gang Green had to win to make a statement and take over the first place in the division, they just came out flat and got totally outclassed. This time the division lead wasn't on the line, as the Jets had lost any realistic hope for the division title a while ago, but the Gang Green could have solidified their Wild Card claims with a win in Philly, but it just wasn't to be.
Most Jet fans would love to be in the situation that the Patriots are in come Sunday. Of course that is the very achievable scenario of winning just one of the next three games to claim a division title and more importantly the potential for a bye week and even more important at least one game in front of your fans in the playoffs. Only somebody who owns stock in a defibrillator company would feel comfortable with the situation the Jets are facing. It certainly is a daunting task that remains ahead of the Jets but they know they control their own destiny which may or may not be a good thing.
DT Mike DeVito and RB/KR Joe McKnight, both of whom missed last week's game against the Kansas City Chiefs, are listed as "probable" and expected to play tomorrow against the Eagles. McKnight will be back returning kickoffs where he was replaced last week by CB Antonio Cromartie. CB Marquice Cole will not play with a knee injury. He was injured during the Chiefs game, and returned to the game but has not practiced with the team this week.
This week the Jets are traveling to the City of Brotherly Love to play the 5-8 Philadelphia Eagles with a clear objective - win and stay in front of the race for the final Wild Card spot. To achieve this objective the Jets must try and stop one of the league’s most potent offenses. The Eagles have dealt with injuries to their star quarterback, injuries to their receiving core and a bout with diva wide receiver. At times they have shown their potential to be an explosive offense gaining over 400 yards in 7 games this season. But frequently they have shown to be ineffective and mistake prone – ranking 30th in turnover ratio and last in the NFL in INTs thrown.
QB Mark Sanchez threw a couple of touchdown passes and ran for another two, as the New York Jets easily cruised past the Kansas City Chiefs, 37-10. It was the Gang Green's third win in a row but it might have come with a rather high price tag. S Jim Leonhard reportedly has a torn ligament in his right knee and will miss the remainder of the season. On the positive side, besides the win, the Jets now control their own playoff destiny, as Cincinnati, Oakland and Tennessee all lost today.
RB/KR Joe McKnight, who leads the league in kickoff returns, and rookie NT Kenrick Ellis are among inactives for today's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. McKnight was listed as "questionable" for this game after injuring his elbow last Sunday. Ellis is a healthy scratch. He did not play well last week and DT Ropati Pitoitua will start in place of DT Mike DeVito who's out due to a knee injury.
OG Brandon Moore, who's listed as "questionable" for Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs, said that he will play on Sunday despite missing all three practice sessions this week. If Moore cannot play, then OG Caleb Schlauderaff would replace him in the starting lineup. DT Mike DeVito is listed as "doubtful" is more like "out." Rex Ryan said there's a 75 percent chance that DeVito will not play against Kansas City. RB/KR Joe McKnight (elbow) along with DT Marcus Dixon (hip) were limited in practice today and are listed as questionable.McKnight, who leads the league in kickoff returns, will be a game-time decision.
Defensive coordinator Mike Pettine announced that LB Jamaal Westerman will replace LB Garrett McIntyre as the starting outside linebacker in the base defense. The battle for this position has been going on since LB Bryan Thomas was lost for the season in Week 4. Westerman started in Week 6 against the Dolphins but then lost the job to LB Josh Mauga who started in Week 7. McIntyre started in the last three games.
I can't contain my disappointment any longer over the fans that are on Rex's case. It is becoming redundant reading news articles, comments from readers, former players, media-types, et al, beating up Rex for, well – everything! Talking too much; over-rating his team; putting the "bull's eye" on the teams back; foot-gate; finger-gate; cussing and swearing. The list goes on and on, all accumulated over a short near-3 year period. The media pundits and fans of THIS team, let alone other teams, continue to pile on.
RB Shonn Greene's three touchdown runs and QB Mark Sanchez's 4th quarter touchdown pass to WR Santonio Holmes propelled the Jets past the Washington Redskins and one step closer to making the playoffs. It wasn't pretty though as the game was rather even throughout the first three quarters. The Jets took the lead in the final quarter on a 30-yard TD pass from Sanchez to Holmes. Then, three plays later, LB Aaron Maybin sacked the quarterback forcing a fumble that was recovered on Washington's 9-yard line. Two plays later Greene scored his second touchdown of the game, sealing the deal.
Rookie NT Kenrick Ellis will start in place of injured DT Mike DeVito who will miss Sunday's game due to a knee injury he suffered last week against the Buffalo Bills. Rookie WR Jeremy Kerley will be back in action returning punts and playing in the slot receiver position. RB LaDainian Tomlinson will be back as well and could also see his role expanded. OL Vlad Ducasse (knee), who was limited in Wednesday and Thursday practice sessions, was a full participant in this morning's session and is listed as "probable."
QB Mark Sanchez threw a career-high four touchdown passes, including the winning score to WR Santonio Holmes, as he overcame his second quarter interception and led the Gang Green to a 28-24 comeback win against the Buffalo Bills. Sanchez might have been erratic at times, throwing into double and triple coverage, but when the game was on the line, he pulled himself together and orchestrated a 12-play game-winning drive that went for 77 yards. This was surely a morale booster for the Jets' signal caller that hopefully will help the Gang Green turn this season around, as they pretty much have to win all of their remaining games.
RB LaDainian Tomlinson and rookie WR Jeremy Kerley will both miss today's game against the Buffalo Bills. FS Brodney Pool, who missed last couple of games, is active and will play. RB Joe McKnight will replace Tomlinson as the third round back, while WR Patrick Turner will take Kerley's place as #3 wide receiver.
After wins against the Dolphins, Chargers and Bills the Jets were on the verge of taking over the AFC East. However, instead of taking over the AFC East the Jets turned out two lackluster performances in a row bringing them to 5-5 and on the verge of missing the playoffs for the first time since 2008. In order to avoid missing the playoffs this season the Jets will need to embark on an extraordinary run to close out the 2011 season.
RB LaDainian Tomlinson and WR Jeremy Kerley both missed an entire week of practice and are listed as questionable for tomorrow's game against the Buffalo Bills. Although Rex Ryan stated that he considered listing Tomlinson as "doubtful", as it looks rather unlikely that he will play tomorrow. Kerley will be a game-time decision. Tomlinson suffered his injury late in the Patriots game. He did not make the trip to Denver for last week's game.
Well, this game looked like a sure win on paper, but in a typical "same old Jets" fashion the Gang Green imploded losing for the second time in five days and putting their playoff hopes in serious doubt. Just five days ago everyone was talking about taking over the AFC East and having a home playoff game. Now, the question is whether this Jets team makes the playoffs at all or it's time to rebuild again.
FS Brodney Pool, RB LaDainian Tomlinson and WR Jeremy Kerley will all miss tonight's game against the Denver Broncos. WR Patrick Turner is active and expected to play despite kidney injury that he suffered against the Patriots. As Kerley can't go, WR Eron Riley, a former Bronco, will make his Jets' debut tonight. Tomlinson will be replaced by rookie RB Bilal Powell who will make his NFL debut.
We've been through this many times before, we've believed in this many times before and the Jets have failed just like this many times before. They did it again last night when in a must win game against the hated Patriots, they just failed to perform up to the level needed to be competitive. In the game that was expected to result in the shift of power in the AFC East, the crowned champ simply demolished the contender. Contrary to last week, when the Gang Green performed admirably against the Bills in every aspect of the game, this time they made crucial mistakes everywhere they could - offense, defense and special teams.
FS Brodney Pool, who started last week against the Buffalo Bills, will miss tonight's game against the New England Patriots due to a sprained MCL he suffered last Sunday. The other inactives are RB Bilal Powell, WR Eron Riley, NT Kenrick Ellis, QB Kevin O'Connell, DL Martin Tevaseu, TE Shawn Nelson inactive for Week 10. The Jets will carry 10 defensive backs into this game. There will be five active defensive lineman, as both Kenrick Ellis and Martin Tevaseu are inactive.
LB David Harris was named AFC Defensive Player of Week 9. Last Sunday he registered five tackles, one interception and one pass defensed in the Jets’ 27-11 win at Buffalo. Harris registered his second interception of the season and the fourth of his career when he picked off QB Ryan Fitzpatrick in the second quarter at the Jets’ 49-yard line. In his fifth season from Michigan, this is Harris’ second career Defensive Player of the Week Award. Harris previously won the award in 2009 (Week 1). He joins CB Antonio Cromartie (Week 2) and CB Darrelle Revis (Week 6) as the third Jet to win Defensive Player of the Week this season.
If this was a sign of the things to come, then sky is the limit for this Jets team, as they finally played a complete game on offense, defense and special teams. Going into the game against the Bills as 2.5-point underdogs, the Gang Green left their opponents absolutely no chances, totally dominating the contest from start to finish. The Bills, who had one of the best offensive units in the league, were limited to under 300 total yards and under 100 yards on the ground.
Both DE Mike DeVito and DT Kenrick Ellis have been declared inactive for today's contest against the Buffalo Bills. DeVito will miss second straight game due to a knee injury he suffered in practice before the game against the Chargers. The rest of the inactives are RB Bilal Powell, WR Eron Riley, CB Isaiah Trufant, QB Kevin O'Connell, and TE Shawn Nelson.
RB/KR Joe McKnight was named the AFC's Special Teams Player of the Month for October. He returned 11 kickoffs for 443 yards for the month, including a 107-yard kickoff-return touchdown against the Ravens, which was also the longest play in Jets' history. McKnight’s 40.3 kickoff return average in October was the highest in the NFL. In his second season from USC, this is McKnight’s first career Player of the Month Award. He joins KR Justin Miller (October of 2006), KR Brad Smith (December of 2010) and P Tom Tupa (November of 1999) as the only Jets to earn Special Teams Player of the Month honors.
This was another must win for the Gang Green and they delivered again, overcoming an 11-point deficit and rediscovering their running game en route to a 27-21 win against the San Diego Chargers. WR Plaxico Burress also rediscovered his touchdown catching abilities, scoring three times for the second time in his career. RB Shonn Greene finally ran for over 100 yards and the defense finally looked like it should have all season.
DE Mike DeVito is inactive for today's game against the San Diego Chargers and will be replaced in the starting lineup by rookie NT Kenrick Ellis, who will make his first career start. This is quite a turnaround for the rookie, as he was inactive in the first five game of the season, finally making his debut on Monday against the Dolphins. The rest of the Jets' inactives are RB Bilal Powell, C Colin Baxter, LB Garrett McIntyre, CB Isaiah Trufant, WR Eron Riley and QB Kevin O'Connell.
DE Mike DeVito will be a game-time decision tomorrow after he suffered a knee injury in Thursday practice session. DeVito is listed as "questionable" on the final injury report along with C Nick Mangold, who limited in Friday's session. The Gang Green have two players listed as "out" - WR Logan Payne (wrist) and CB Isaiah Trufant (hamstring). Payne, who missed every game this season, was finally placed on the injured reserve and replaced by DT Martin Tevaseu on the 53-man roster.
CB Darrelle Revis' brilliant performance against the Miami Dolphins did not go unnoticed, as the All-Pro cornerback was named the AFC Defensive Player of Week 6. Revis recorded three tackles, four passes defensed and tied a career-high with two interceptions, including a 100-yard interception-return touchdown in the Jets' 24-6 win over the Dolphins. His 100-yard interception-return touchdown tied for the longest interception returned for a touchdown in team history (CB Aaron Glenn also had a 100-yard return on September 15, 1996). This was the third game of his career with two interceptions and the Jets are 3-0 in such contests. In his fifth season from Pittsburgh, this is Revis' second career Defensive Player of the Week Award. He previously won the award in 2009 (Week 12).
Not many teams throw at CB Darrelle Revis, but the Miami Dolphins were stupid enough last night to do so on quite a few occasions. They paid the price, as Revis intercepted two passes and returned one of them 100 yards for a touchdown that turned out to be the game winner. Revis' pick six was crucial as it turned a potential 10-0 in favor of Miami into a 7-3 Jets' lead. It also completely changed the momentum in the first quarter when it seemed like the Dolphins were completely dominating the game on both sides of the football.
The New York Jets have four players listed as "out" on the final injury report for tonight's game against the Miami Dolphins. While WR Logan Payne has been out since the start of the season, CB Donald Strickland, CB Isaiah Trufant and DE Ropati Pitoitua all suffered injuries in the last game against New England. Both Trufant and Pitoitua, who registered his first career sack against the Pats, missed the entire week of practice. C Nick Mangold missed practice on Thursday and Friday, but did participate on Saturday on a limited basis. He's listed as "questionable."
Just like a week ago, despite playing pretty poorly, the Jets still had a chance at the end. Just like a week ago, the Gang Green blew it. This time, however, it wasn't QB Mark Sanchez who gave this chance away. It was Rex Ryan's heralded defense that simply could not make a stop when they had to. They didn't even have to stop Tom Brady and New England's high-powered passing attack, as the Patriots just kept running, easily gaining 5-6 yards on almost every carry. The Ravens did exactly the same in the final quarter a week ago and they were as successful. Can't stop a nose bleed, Bart Scott?
For the second week in a row C Nick Mangold is listed as "questionable" on the final injury report. This time, however, Rex Ryan said that Mangold's questionable status is just a formality and he's expected to suit up against the New England Patriots. LB Calvin Pace was limited in practice but is listed as "probable" and expected to play as well.
Well, it didn't take long. Three days after the debacle against the Baltimore Ravens where QB Mark Sanchez was just 11 of 35 for 119 yards, 1 INT and 3 lost fumbles, an ESPN study showed that Sanchez's performance was the worst one for a quarterback in recent history. "Over 46 plays, Sanchez rated an 0.6, the worst of any quarterback involved in 40 or more plays in a game over the last four seasons. There were more than 900 such games over this stretch."
150 total yards, 7 first downs, 3 lost fumbles (2 returned for touchdowns), 1 interception returned for a touchdown - these are the stats put up by the Jets' offense last night in Baltimore. The only positive is that it probably cannot get any worse than that, although you never know when it comes to the New York Jets.
All-Pro C Nick Mangold's status for Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens has been upgraded to "questionable" and it will be a gametime decision whether he plays or not. The Jets have six players listed as "probable" and all of them are expected to play.
Everyone knew that the Raiders had a powerful running attack, going into today's game, but hardly anyone could have predicted that Oakland would run for 234 yards en route to a 34-24 win against Rex Ryan's Jets. 234 rushing yards was the highest the Gang Green ever allowed under head coach Rex Ryan.
The New York Jets have declared RB Bilal Powell, SS Emmanuel Cook, DL Kenrick Ellis, QB Kevin O'Connell, WR Logan Payne, C Nick Mangold, OL Robert Turner inactive for Week 3. All-Pro C Nick Mangold will miss the first game of his career due to an ankle injury he suffered last week. Undrafted rookie C Colin Baxter will start in his place.
As it was expected, C Nick Mangold will miss Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders due to the ankle injury he suffered against the Jaguars. WR Logan Payne (wrist) and OL Rob Turner (ankle) are out as well. Undrafted rookie C Colin Baxter will start in place of Mangold.
CB Antonio Cromartie, who intercepted two passes in Sunday's win against the Jacksonville Jaguars, has been named AFC Defensive Player of the Week. After struggling in Week 1 against the Cowboys, when he gave up two touchdown passes, Cromartie rebounded against Jacksonville.
The New York Jets' defense came out on a mission this afternoon, after a shaky performance last week against the Cowboys, as they intercepted four passes and limited Jacksonville to just 203 total yards (112 rushing and 91 passing). The Gang Green crushed the Jaguars, 32-3, but lost All-Pro C Nick Mangold who suffered an ankle injury in the first quarter. Mangold is scheduled to have an MRI tomorrow, but it looks like he will miss a few weeks. Rookie OL Colin Baxter replaced Mangold and performed pretty well.
The New York Jets have declared QB Kevin O'Connell, WR Logan Payne, S Emanuel Cook, RB Bilal Powell, OT Caleb Schlauderaff, OL Rob Turner and NT Kenrick Ellis inactive for today's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Rookies Powell and Ellis are inactive for the second time this season.
MLB David Harris, WR Santonio Holmes and S Eric Smith were all limited in practice this week but are expected to play on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Harris, who's been nursing a toe injury all week, dressed for practice today and went through individual drills, but as soon as the team portion of practice began, he headed off to the side to work with the strength and conditioning staff. Holmes and Smith both participated in practice during the portion open to the media.
According to the New York Daily News, the Jets are meeting with free agent OLB Tully Banta-Cain today. Banta-Cain is an 8-year veteran who spent his career with the Patriots and 49ers. He was released by New England this summer. Banta-Cain passed a physical for the Raiders recently and is believed to be fully healed from off-season abdominal surgery. There are a few other teams interested in the 31-year-old free agent, who registered 14.5 sacks in his last 31 games.
This was definitely a season opener to remember, as the New York Jets snatched an improbable 27-24 win against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night after trailing by 14 points in the final quarter. First, WR Plaxico Burress, who had zero catches in the first half, caught a 26-yard touchdown pass from QB Mark Sanchez, cutting Dallas' lead to 7. Then, RB Joe McKnight blocked a punt that was taken back for a touchdown by СB Isaiah Trufant, tying the game. Finally, PK Nick Folk, a former Cowboy, booted a 50-yard field goal to win the game for New York on such an emotional day that marked the 10th Anniversary of 9/11.
In a rather surprising move the New York Jets declared rookie NT Kenrick Ellis inactive for tonight's game against the Dallas Cowboys. This means that the Gang Green are going into the game with only five defensive linemen. Ellis has been nursing a hamstring injury, so this could be the reason why he's out for tonight's game.
The New York Jets are scheduled to open the 2011 season, assuming that there's a season after all, against Dallas on Sunday Night Football. This will be one of five prime time appearances for the Gang Green. In Week 4 the Jets will travel to Baltimore for another Sunday Night Footbal contest. Then, in Week 6 the Jets will host the Miami Dolphins on Monday Night Football. In Week 10 the Gang Green will host the Patriots on another Sunday Night Football, and finally the Jets will travel to Denver to take on the Broncos on the following Thursday in Week 11.
CB Darrelle Revis and C Nick Mangold both made the first 2010 Associated Press All-Pro team. This is the second All-Pro selection for both players, as they made the first team last year as well. Mangold started in all 16 regular season games this season and solidified his place as arguably the best center in the league. Revis continued taking the opponent's best receivers out of the game, despite missing a few games due to an injury.
The New York Jets have declared S Eric Smith, OT Damien Woody, S James Ihedigbo, RB LaDainian Tomlinson, CB Antonio Cromartie, CB Darrrelle Revis, RB Shonn Greene and QB Kellen Clemens as inactive for the final regular season game against the Buffalo Bills. Clemens is #3 emergency quarterback.
C Nick Mangold, OT D'Brickashaw Ferguson and CB Darrelle Revis were voted to the 2011 Pro Bowl. Mangold and Revis were selected as starters, while Ferguson is a backup.

RB LaDainian Tomlinson of the New York Jets is the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for games played the fourth week of the 2010 season (October 3-4), the NFL announced today. He registered his first 100-yard game as a Jet, rushing for 133 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries (7.0 average) in a 38-14 win over Buffalo. Tomlinson also led the NFL in rushing yards (133) in Week 4 and tied for the league high in rushing touchdowns with two.
RB LaDainian Tomlinson's impressive performance against the Buffalo Bills did not go unnoticed, as the Jets' running back has been named among the finalists for the FedEx Ground Player of the Week award.

In Week 3 the Jets will travel to Miami to take on the Dolphins in another nationally televised contest, this time on Sunday Night Football.
The NFL announced on Monday that both the Jets and the Giants will play at home in their new Meadownlands Stadium in Week 1 of the 2010 regular season.

The NFL is completing the final stages of the 2010 schedule. The opponents for the Jets and Giants Kickoff Weekend home openers will be announced soon.
CB Darrelle Revis and C Nick Mangold made the 2009 NFL All-Pro team. LB David Harris was selected to the second NFL All-Pro team. While Tennessee RB Chris Johnson was the only player to make the first team unanimously (50 votes), Revis received 48 of 50 votes and is in the first team along with Packers CB Charles Woodson. Mangold's All-Pro selection basically means that the Jets have the best center in the entire league.
The Gang Green will see the Bengals again next Saturday, as they shut Cincinnati out tonight in what possibly was the last game played in the Giants Stadium. Many had predicted that the Jets would win, but not many thought that New York would simply annihilate the Bengals, 37-0.
The New York Jets are 30 minutes away from making the playoffs, as they lead 27-0 at halftime against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Jets have had the ball for almost 25 minutes and already gained 190 rushing yards against the defense that had been allowing less than 90 per game.
C Nick Mangold, OG Alan Faneca and CB Darrelle Revis will represent the New York Jets in the 2010 Pro Bowl, which will be played on Sunday, January 31, 2010 at Dolphin Stadium.
The New York Jets beat the previously undefeated Indianapolis Colts to keep their playoff hopes alive, 29-15. The Jets now control their own destiny, as Baltimore, Miami and Jacksonville all lost earlier today. All the Gang Green have to do is defeat the Cincinnati Bengals in the regular season finale next Sunday.
The New York Jets have declared QB Kevin O'Connell, RB Chauncey Washington, LB Kenwin Cummings, OG Matt Slauson, DE Ropati Pitoitua, LB Marques Murrell and DT Howard Green inactive for today's game against the Indianapolis Colts. QB Erik Ainge is #3 emergency quarterback.
Well, this was really nothing new for everyone who's been watching this team long enough. The same old Jets lost to the Atlanta Falcons, 7-10, after dominating basically the entire game. The so much heralded defense that kept Atlanta in check for almost four quarters gave up a touchdown drive right when it mattered the most. Just like they had given it up against Miami and Jacksonville earlier this season.
The New York Jets have declared QB Kevin O'Connell, RB Chauncey Washington, CB Marquice Cole, LB Kenwin Cummings, OG Rob Turner, WR David Clowney and LB Marques Murrell inactive for today's game against the Atlanta Falcons. QB Erik Ainge is #3 emergency quarterback.
Head coach Rex Ryan has finally announced that QB Mark Sanchez will start on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons. Sanchez has practiced this entire week, so Rex's decision really comes as a no surprise. Sanchez will wear braces on his both knees.
QB Mark Sanchez practiced again with the first team this morning. He looked fine, showing no signs of the injury that sidelined him last week against Tampa Bay. Head coach Rex Ryan once again did not name Sanchez as the starter for Sunday's game against Atlanta but said that he was optimistic about the rookie's chances to return to the lineup.
The Gang Green have won their third game in a row, completely dominating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers en route to a 26-3 victory. The defense once again came up big for the Jets, as they held Tampa Bay to only 124 total yards and 6 first downs.
The Jets are leading Tampa Bay 19-0 at halftime, as the defense completely dominated the first half. The Gang Green limited the struggling Buccaneers to just 15 total yards and no first downs. MLB David Harris had an interception on the first play from scrimmage that led to a Jets' field goal.
The New York Jets have declared CB Dwight Lowery, QB Kevin O'Connell, LB Kenwyn Cummings, QB Mark Sanchez, LB Marques Murrell, OL Robert Turner, DL Ropati Pitoitua, OT Ryan McKee inactive for Week 14. Kevin O'Connell is #3 emergency quarterback.
The New York Jets beat the Buffalo Bills in Toronto to keep their slim playoff hopes alive and get back to .500. QB Mark Sanchez left the game in the 3rd quarter with a knee injury and did not return. It was the defense, however, that won this game for the Gang Green. The Bills were limited to just 194 yards of total offense and only 71 passing yards. DE Shaun Ellis and CB Darrelle Revis came up with huge plays at the end of the fourth quarter to kill Buffalo's last hope to win this game.
QB Mark Sanchez will start again next week despite throwing 4 interceptions and losing a fumble in a 14-31 loss against the New England Patriots. Head coach Rex Ryan said that he had no plans on benching the rookie, as sitting on the bench will not help him improve. This was the second time this season when Sanchez turned the ball over 5 times in one game.
The Jets are trailing 24-7 at halftime after what was probably the worst half played by the Gang Green this season. The Jets have gained only 34 yards thus far, while New England has racked up 272 yards against Rex Ryan's heralded defensive unit. New York has only 2 first downs and QB Mark Sanchez has thrown an equal number of completed passes and interceptions - two apiece. The Jets rookie is 2 of 9 for 15 yards, 0 TD, 2 INT.
The New York Jets have declared QB Erik Ainge, CB/KR Justin Miller, LB Vernon Gholston, LB Ryan Fowler, LB Kenwin Cummings, OG Matt Slauson and DE Ropati Pitoitua and QB Kevin O'Connell inactive for today's game against the New England Patriots. Kevin O'Connell is #3 emergency quarterback as he was in the first game against New England in Week 2.
The New York Jets suffered another heartbreaking loss this afternoon, as they fell to the Jacksonville Jaguars on a last-second field goal, 22-24. The Gang Green had their chances to win this game, but ultimately just failed to make plays when they had to.
After al this talk about going to the playoffs despite starting the season 4-4 and today's game being a must win, the Jets defense simply forgot to show up this afternoon. They have already allowed 3 touchdowns and 250 yards against Jacksonville, proving once again that a lot of talking doesn't translate into results on the field.
The New York Jets have declared CB Ahmad Carroll, RB Danny Woodhead, QB Erik Ainge, CB Justin Miller, QB Kevin O'Connell, OG Matthew Slauson, LB Ryan Fowler, LB Vernon Gholston inactive for Week 10. Erik Ainge is #3 emergency quarterback.
If you've watched this team for as long as I have, you really should not be surprised at what happened yesterday in the Meadowlands. The Gang Green dominated their opponent, the Miami Dolphins, for almost the entire game, limited them to just 104 yards of total offense and still found a way to lose the game! Yes, those were the Same Old Jets that we got so used to seeing over all these painful years of amazing wins and shocking heartbreaking defeats. There was one thing though that we hadn't seen until yesterday - two back to back kickoff returns for touchdowns!
The same old Jets struck again this afternoon against the hated Miami Dolphins, losing a game where they gained almost four times more yards than their opponent. The Gang Green limited Miami to just 104 yards of total offense and only 10 first downs, yet they managed to find a way to lose in a typical Jets' fashion. This time it was special teams that allowed two back to back kickoff returns for touchdowns, basically giving the game to the Dolphins. After the game head coach Rex Ryan said that this Jets team can beat any team in the league and can also lose to any team in the league. It took him 8 weeks to realize what Jets fans have known for years!
It's halftime and the Jets are tied, 3-3, against the Miami Dolphins. QB Mark Sanchez has looked just horrible, missing open receivers and muffing a snap late in the second quarter. He's 8 of 16 for 54 yards, 0 TD, 0 INT. Would QB Kellen Clemens be a better option at this point? It just can't be worse. Sanchez also almost threw an interception, but WR Braylon Edwards was able to knock the pass down. Of course, benching Sanchez would greatly affect his confidence, but isn't winning games more important?
The New York Jets have declared CB Ahmad Carroll, WR Brad Smith, QB Erik Ainge, QB Kevin O'Connell, CB Lito Sheppard, LB Marques Murrell, CB Marquice Cole, OG Matthew Slauson inactive for Week 8. Erik Ainge will be #3 emergency quarterback.
Jets RB Shonn Greene is among the finalists for Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week honors for games played on October 25-26, the NFL announced Monday. Greene rushed for 144 yards and two touchdowns in the Jets' 38-0 win over the Oakland Raiders. The rest of the finalists are RB Beanie Wells of the Arizona Cardinals, S Jairus Byrd of the Buffalo Bills, WR Percy Harvin of the Minnesota Vikings and CB Jacob Lacey of the Indianapolis Colts.
The Gang Green got back on track yesterday, as they shut out the Oakland Raiders in Oakland, 38-0. For the second week in a row the Jets ran for over 300 yards, becoming the first team to accomplish that in 35 years. Rookie RB Shonn Greene, who replaced injured RB Leon Washington, ran for 144 yards on 19 carries, 2 TDs and should be a candidate for the Offensive Rookie of the Week. RB Thomas Jones added 121 yards on 26 carries, 1 TD. QB Mark Sanchez rebounded after his awful performance last week against the Bills. He did not put up Peyton Manning-like numbers, but played a mistake free game, finishing 9 of 15 for 143 yards, 1 TD. Sanchez also scored a rushing touchdown in the first quarter.
For the second week in a row the New York Jets ran for over 300 yards, but this time with a totally different outcome. The Gang Green shut out the Oakland Raiders, 38-0, and improved to 4-3. RB Thomas Jones and RB Shonn Greene gained over 100 rushing yards apiece. Rookie Shonn Greene gained career-high 144 yards on 19 carries, 2 TDs, while Jones added 121 yards on 26 carries, 1 TD. QB Mark Sanchez rebounded after the awful performance last week, completing 9 of 15 passes for 143 yards, 1 TD. Sanchez also scored a rushing touchdown in the first quarter.
The New York Jets seem to be back on track, as they are leading the Raiders 24-0 at halftime. The Gang Green powerful rushing attack has already gained 145 yards on the ground, while the defense has generated 3 turnovers (2 interceptions and 1 fumble). The only negative is what seemed to be a season ending injury to RB Leon Washington who was carted off in the first quarter. Rookie RB Shonn Greene took over for Washington and gained 63 yards on 9 carries. Greene also scored his first NFL touchdown.
Head coach Rex Ryan has indicated that the Jets will try to simplify the offensive system for rookie QB Mark Sanchez who threw 5 interceptions in the loss against the Buffalo Bills. After winning the Rookie of the Week award in each of the first three weeks of regular season, Sanchez first threw 3 interceptions in Week 4 against the Saints and then followed with the total disaster last Sunday. He now leads the league with 10 interceptions.
Some things in life never change. The sky is blue, the grass is green, and the Jets find ways to make children (and sometimes grown men) cry. Well it seems that one of those three things is changing as you read. Only time will tell whether this is for real or if it’s a façade like an Indian Summer.
Earlier today the New York Jets signed RB/WR Danny Woodhead to the 53-man roster and basically confirmed that both WR Jerricho Cotchery and WR Brad Smith would not play tomorrow against the Buffalo Bills. The Gang Green also released DT Howard Green to make room for Woodhead.
QB Mark Sanchez is among the finalists for Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week honors for games played on Oct. 11-12, the NFL announced earlier today. In the game against the Miami Dolphins he completed 12 of 24 passes for 172 yards and one touchdown. The other four finalists are WR Austin Collie of the Indianapolis Colts, WR Jeremy Maclin of the Philadelphia Eagles, WR Hakeem Nicks of the New York Giants, and RB Knowshon Moreno of the Denver Broncos. Fans can vote for one of these five players on NFL.com/rookies beginning Tuesday at 9 a.m. ET and ending on Friday at noon ET to determine the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week. The winner will be announced Friday evening on NFL.com/rookies.
If last week in New Orleans it was QB Mark Sanchez' time to get back to earth, last night in Miami it was the heralded Jets' defense that lost the game for the Gang Green. The unit that many thought was among the league's elite got totally embarrassed by Miami's wildcat offense and 2nd year quarterback Chad Henne whom, as Rex Ryan put it after the game, the Jets' defense "made look like Dan Marino."
What an embarrassing loss! One of the most disgusting losses in recent memory... Just when we, Jets fans, began believing in Rex Ryan's defense, they produced a total stinker in Miami, losing 27-31 to the Dolphins. No, it wasn't QB Mark Sanchez making mistakes that cost us this game, it wasn't fumbles or interceptions, it was the heralded Jets' defense that, we thought, was one of the best in the league. Boy, were we wrong! This defense got manhandled by Miami's wildcat offense and their 2nd year quarterback with basically no pro experience.
The New York Jets took a 13-10 lead right before halftime as PK Jay Feely converted his 22nd field goal attempt in a row. Recently acquired WR Braylon Edwards scored the only Jet's touchdown - a 3-yard pass from QB Mark Sanchez.
The newest Jets' acquisition, WR Braylon Edwards, practiced with the Gang Green for the first time this morning. He wore a white #17 jersey and caught passes from rookie QB Mark Sanchez, as well as backups QB Erik Ainge and QB Kevin O'Connell. Edwards is expected to start opposite WR Jerricho Cotchery on Monday Night against the Miami Dolphins.
QB Mark Sanchez has been fined $5,000 for an illegal hit on LB Jonathan Vilma during Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. Sanchez threw a pass that was intercepted by S Darren Sharper who returned it 99 yards for a touchdown. The Jets quarterback attempted to give chase and dived at the legs of Vilma, who was blocking for Sharper. Sanchez was flagged for a personal foul.
Mark Sanchez' remarkable rookie NFL campaign hit a big bump yesterday in New Orleans, as the Jets' rookie committed four costly turnovers, which resulted in 14 points for the home team. The Gang Green lost, 10-24, ending undefeated streaks for both Sanchez and head coach Rex Ryan, who lost his first game as an NFL head coach.
The three game winning streak ended this afternoon in New Orleans, as the Gang Green fell to the Saints, 10-24. QB Mark Sanchez' four turnovers, two of which resulted in 14 points for the Saints, were the difference in this hard fought contest where the final score did not really reflect how close the game really was.
The New York Jets are down 3-17 at halftime against the New Orleans Saints, as two mistakes by rookie QB Mark Sanchez resulted in 14 points for the Saints. First, Sanchez threw an interception that was returned 99 yards for a touchdown. Then, he had another attack of fumbelitis when he held onto the ball for too long in the Jets' end zone, was sacked and fumbled. This was Sanchez' fifth fumble this season, he has lost two of them.

The battle of unbeatens will unfold tomorrow afternoon in New Orleans, as the New York Jets (3-0) will take on the New Orleans Saints (3-0). Additionally, this will also be a matchup between arguably the best offense in the NFL and one of the best defensive units. The Jets have held opposing QBs to a 50.2 passer rating (2nd in the NFL) and a 47.9 completion percentage, best in the NFL. New Orleans QB Drew Brees leads the NFL with 118.1 passer rating and is second in the NFL in completion percentage (69.1). The Jets's defense that ranks 3rd in the NFL (256.0 yards/game) and second in points allowed (11.0 points/game) will face the Saints' offense that leads the NFL in total yards (438.0 yards/game) and scoring (40.0 points/game).
QB Mark Sanchez of the New York Jets is the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week for games played on Sept. 27-28, the NFL has announced earlier today. Sanchez completed 17 of 30 for 171 yards and two touchdowns in the Jets' 24-17 win over Tennessee, becoming the first rookie quarterback to start and win his team's first three games of a season in the past 40 years. This is Sanchez' third Rookie of the Week honor in a row. He was also voted Offensive Rookie of the Month.
S Jim Leonhard returned to practice this morning after missing yesterday's session with a knee injury. CB Lito Sheppard (quad) and CB Donald Strickland (ankle), however, did not suit up at all. It's becoming more and more obvious that neither is going to play this Sunday against the Saints. CB Corey Ivy, a former Raven, was brought in for a tryout last week and will most likely be signed before Sunday's game. LB Larry Izzo and OL Wayne Hunter, both of whom missed yesterday's session as well, returned to practice this morning.
LB Jason Trusnik was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for games played the third week of the 2009 season (September 27-28). This is Trusnik’s first career Player of the Week Award. In the first quarter, he forced a fumble when he knocked the ball loose from Titans KR Ryan Mouton and recovered the ball at the Titans 19-yard line. The Jets scored five plays later to take a 14-0 lead. Through Week 3, Trusnik is tied for a team-high six tackles on special teams. The last Jet to win AFC Special Teams Player of the Week was RB/KR Leon Washington in 2008 (Week 11).
For the third week in a row QB Mark Sanchez has been nominated for Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week honors. He completed 17 of 30 passes for 171 yards and two touchdowns in the Jets' 24-17 win over Tennessee, becoming the first rookie quarterback to start and win his team's first three games of a season in the past 40 years. The other finalists are QB Matthew Stafford of the Detroit Lions, WR Percy Harvin of the Minnesota Vikings, RB Knowshon Moreno of the Denver Broncos and RB Donald Brown of the Indianapolis Colts.
The New York Jets defeated the Tennessee Titans, 24-17, and improved to 3-0, marking their best start since 2004 when the Gang Green began the season 5-0. Unlike in the previous two games, however, there were quite a few alarming signs that definitely should be addressed this week in preparation for the New Orleans Saints. While the Jets were clear winners against Houston and New England, let's be honest and admit that yesterday's game could have easily gone either way.
The New York Jets improved to 3-0 as they defeated the Tennessee Titans, 24-17, in what seemed like a roller coaster where the Gang Green made big plays when they needed them. The Jets are 3-0 for the first time since 2004 when they started the season 5-0 under head coach Herman Edwards.
The New York Jets have declared CB Lito Sheppard, CB Donald Strickland, OG Matt Slauson, QB Erik Ainge, QB Kevin O'Donnell, DE Ropati Pitoitua, LB Jamaal Westerman and WR David Clowney as inactive for Week 3. Erik Ainge will be #3 emergency quarterback.
The New York Jets will play their first AFL legacy game this season, as they take on the Tennessee Titans tomorrow in Giants Stadium. Both teams will be wearing their original AFL franchise uniforms of 1960. Tennessee leads regular season series between the teams, 21-16-1. Interestingly, the Titans of New York (the original name of the Jets) never beat the Houston Oilers (the original name of the Titans) - they lost all 6 games to the Oilers in 1960-1962.
For the second week in a row QB Mark Sanchez was named the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week. Sanchez completed 14 of 22 passes for 163 yards and one touchdown in the Jets' 16-9 win over the AFC East rival New England Patriots. He also won this award for his debut performance against the Houston Texans in Week 1.
LB Keith Bulluck of the Tennessee Titans apparently took some lessons on trash talking from Jets players and guaranteed a victory against the Jets on Sunday. "We're definitely getting back after it," Bulluck told reporters. "We’re going against a rookie quarterback. We plan on showing him a bunch of different looks and to take what Kerry Rhodes said last week, we want to knock their quarterback around. We're not a team that’s desperate. We’re a team that knows how to win. And we’re a team that plans on going to New York this week and getting a win, our first win."
"I think so. Who do we have to beat?" was Rex Ryan's answer on ESPN 1050 when asked if the New York Jets were an elite team. The Jets are 2-0 after beating the New England Patriots on Sunday and suddenly on the radar of all media "experts", most of whom predicted the Gang Green to finish last in AFC East. Ryan did not stop there, however, as he added that the Jets won the Super Bowl in his dad's first year as a coach in New York, and so maybe the Gang Green just needed a Ryan on their coaching staff to return to Super Bowl glory.
CB Darrelle Revis, who shut down WR Andre Johnson and WR Randy Moss in consecutive weeks, is among Sunday's five most valuable players on Yahoo Sports. "He’s in my top three corners in the NFL", said former All Pro Deion Sanders, and added that "all who are listening and watching please take the Jets seriously."
The Jets' defense dominated for the second week in a row, as the Gang Green backed up their brash statements and defeated the New England Patriots, 16-9. The Jets also snapped an 8-game home losing streak against New England, stopped Tom Brady's game winning streak at 21 games, and extended their own streak of not allowing a touchdown to two games. The Gang Green are 2-0 for the first time since 2004 when they started the season 5-0 under head coach Herman Edwards.
This was truly a game of two totally different halves, as the New York Jets' offense came out with a vengeance in the second half and scored 13 unanswered points. The Gang Green beat their archrival, 16-9, and moved into sole possession of the AFC East. They also finally snapped the 8-game losing streak to the Patriots in home games, which dated back to 2001.
This was a pretty rough half for rookie QB Mark Sanchez, as he was sacked and fumbled on the first play from scrimmage. The second possession wasn't any better - this time it was RB Leon Washington who fumbled the ball, giving the Patriots possession on the Jets' 17-yard line. Although replays showed that Washington was down before the ball came out, the officials ruled this a fumble.
The New York Jets have declared QB Erik Ainge, DT Howard Green, QB Kevin O'Connell, TE Matthew Mulligan, OG Matthew Slauson, DE Mike DeVito, DL Ropati Pitoitua, and LB Ryan Fowler inactive for Week 2. Kevin O'Connell will be #3 emergency quarterback.
Another chapter in the Jets vs. Patriots rivalry will be written tomorrow, as the Pats, who have won last 8 in the Meadowlands, come to take on the resurging Gang Green. This will be 98th regular season contest between these two original AFL teams. The Jets are ahead 49-47-1, but will go into this game as 3.5-point underdogs.
There's a conflicting report on ESPN that NT Kris Jenkins might miss the game against the New England Patriots due to a back injury. Jenkins, according to the same source, missed today's practice. He was also limited in Wednesday and Thursday practice sessions.
QB Mark Sanchez has won the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week award for Week 1 of regular season. He recorded the third most passing yards in NFL history for a rookie in Week One with 272 yards completing 18 of 31 passes with one touchdown and one interception for a passer rating of 84.3 in the Jets' 24 - 7 win over the Houston Texans. Sanchez led a Jets offense that gained a total 462 yards and controlled the ball for nearly 39 minutes.
QB Mark Sanchez and RB Thomas Jones are among the nominees for the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week and FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week awards respectively.
Rex Ryan's heralded defense and rookie QB Mark Sanchez both made their debuts yesterday against the Houston Texans and both passed the first test. The new aggressive defense was able to completely shut down the Texans' offense that was ranked 3rd in the league last season. Mark Sanchez, meanwhile, did not play like a rookie at all. The 22-year old kid from USC showed great pocket awareness and composure. He was especially effective on third downs, and his ability to buy time with his feet is another thing that we haven't seen from a Jets quarterback in quite some time.
The Rex Ryan/Mark Sanchez era has begun with a stunning display on both defense and offense, as the Gang Green dominated the Houston Texans, 24-7. QB Mark Sanchez, who finished the game 18 of 31, 272 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT, became the first Jets' rookie quarterback to win a game since Richard Todd did it in 1976. Rex Ryan's revamped defense played as advertised, limiting Houston to just 181 total yards.
The Jets defense looked exactly the way it had been advertised in the first half against the Houston Texans. Bart Scott and Co. completely dominated the 3rd best offense, limiting them to just 104 yards and 5 first downs. Constant pressure, gang tackling and aggressive playcalling seemed to catch the Texans off guard, as their offensive stars were almost completely shut down in the first half. All Pro WR Andre Johnson was limited to just one catch for 7 yards.
The New York Jets have declared RB Shonn Greene, CB Drew Coleman, G Matt Slauson, QB Kevin O'Connell, LB Ryan Fowler, TE Matthew Mulligan, CB Marquice Cole inactive for today's game against the Texans. QB Erik Ainge will be #3 emergency quarterback.
The New York Jets will open their season tomorrow when they take on the Houston Texans, a team that hasn't had a winning season in their seven years in the NFL. The Texans, however, finished 8-8 in both of the last two seasons and are projected to finally have a breakthrough season with a possible playoff berth. The Jets go into the game as 5-point underdogs, as they will face a formidable opponent who has won their last 3 home games and is 12-4 in home games over the last two seasons. Last season the Texans were ranked 3rd in total offense (4th in passing, 4th in rushing).
The new era in the history of the New York Jets will begin on Sunday when rookie head coach Rex Ryan and rookie QB Mark Sanchez will lead the team against the Houston Texans. The Gang Green are 4.5 to 5 point underdogs, facing a team that's expected to make the playoffs for the first time in their history. Ryan is one of nine rookie head coaches this season. Mark Sanchez will become the first Jets rookie quarterback to start since Matt Robinson started on November 13, 1977 against the Seattle Seahawks. The New York Jets have gone 491 consecutive games without starting a rookie quarterback, the longest current streak in the NFL. Robinson started just one game in 1977 - a 20-23 loss to the Steelers where he went 7 of 19 for 80 yards, 1 TD, 3 INT.

This was a "make it or break it game" and the Gang Green passed the test, beating one of their archrivals 26-17. This win put the Jets in a 3-team tie with the Bills and the Patriots, but with the best division record the Gang Green are in the first place.
