“We embrace the challenges, this team,” tight end Konrad Reuland said. “We truly believe we can beat any team we line up against.”
Seven Jets players — including Bilal Powell and Matt Simms — are volunteering Tuesday to help spackle, sheetrock and paint the damaged St. Rose High School and Convent in Belmar, N.J.
If the defense can continue to give a solid account of itself, the team will have a chance to improve and Ryan may just put a crimp in Idzik’s offseason plans to hire a new head coach.
The Jets and their fans waited almost three months to see if Chris Ivory was worth the investment. If he keeps this up he will prove to be the ultimate steal.
With Mayo and Wilfork out the Jets should look to establish the running game early and often.
Forget the Atlanta and Pittsburgh games; the Jets are beginning a gauntlet against the NFL’s heavy hitters. And how they do will determine if the play meaningful games in December,
The loss could have been a costly one for New York, which saw running backs Bilal Powell (shoulder) and Mike Goodson (left knee), wide receiver Clyde Gates (shoulder) and cornerback Kyle Wilson (head) all leave with injuries.
Rex Ryan feels the Jets must strive for consistency. “We’re striving for consistency and we’re not quite there. We have to get there in a hurry,” Ryan said.
Geno Smith was intercepted twice as the Jets lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers 19-6. Gang Green’s record now stands at 3-3.
He’s only been here for five games, but new offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg is already proving to be nothing like his predecessors. He’s creative. He’s aggressive. He loves to throw the ball. He believes in balance.
Can the Jets rookie quarterback overcome adversity and a hostile environment to secure a victory for Gang Green?
Geno Smith made a number of “rookie mistakes” in the Jets’ 38-13 loss to the Titans. The Jets are now 2-2.
“Really, he is just a real natural football player,” Mornhinweg said of Powell. “Things come easily to him. You teach him something and then he gets it very quickly.”
Running back Chris Ivory and rookie cornerback Dee Milliner will not play in the team’s game at Tennessee on Sunday because of injured hamstrings.
There are good things happening right now as Smith is making progress, Powell has some chops as a running back and the defense is playing the way a Ryan defense is supposed to.
