One of the biggest stories heading into Sunday’s game is the starting lineup in the New York Jets defensive backfield, as it has been modified due to injuries and roster decisions.
If it were up to Milliner, he would be manning his usual spot in the Jets’ secondary in the season opener. His left ankle, though, might keep him on the sideline.
The great experiment of using a converted safety as a starting cornerback looks like it will continue for at least the first week of the regular season.
John Idzik has heard the anger about the offseason’s allocation of funds. He just wants everyone to take a deep breath. He says he’s got this.
New York Jets cornerback Dimitri Patterson says the team’s often-criticized defensive backs have a chance to “shut people up” this season.
Geno Smith and Andy Dalton had horrid performances in their last games at Paul Brown Stadium. And neither has forgotten.
What a whirlwind of a week for Antonio Allen. And, it was still only Tuesday.
While many of the fans continue to freak out over the Jets’ well-documented problems at cornerback, head coach Rex Ryan tried something different at practice on Monday.
The New York Jets safety is no longer the hard-hitting, ball-hawking youngster who could single-handedly change a game. But, Reed insists, he’s still pretty darn good.
Rex Ryan says the Jets will be “smart” about how many snaps Santonio Holmes plays against the Bills to avoid reinjuring the hamstring.
The New York Jets and nine-time Pro Bowl safety Ed Reed have agreed to terms on a contract, reuniting coach Rex Ryan with one of his favorite players.
This is not, nor was it expected to be, a playoff team. For those who cling to the belief that the Jets defense is worthy enough to keep them competitive in every game, think again.
Now, everyone will be talking about the curious call in overtime that secured New York’s win over New England. But that doesn’t even happen without Ryan’s halftime adjustments.
While the New York Jets’ quarterback competition is far from settled, Matt Simms certainly showed Thursday he might deserve to stick around when the season starts.
“I hope when he plays, there are those comparisons, and I understand where people are coming from,” Rex Ryan said. “But Darrelle was a special player. Dee Milliner is never going to be Darrelle Revis. He’s going to be Dee Milliner.”
