Ridley played in only six games last year before tearing his right ACL. “He’s excited for the opportunity and his rehab is going strong at this point,” said his agent, Andy Simms.
Rex Ryan’s arrogance cost his New York Jets the game on Monday night.
Coming out of the bye the Jets will have a fully loaded offense as they take on the Buffalo Bills.
The New York Jets enter the bye week with a record of 2-8. Which players stood out most for Gang Green? Are there players that let the team down?
The Jets suffered their sixth straight loss, the longest streak in Rex Ryan’s six seasons as coach, after taking a 19-17 lead with just under 9 minutes left in the third quarter.
Monday night was a microcosm of what it means to be green. The game, like the Jets’ history, ended a few yards short of relevance.
Chris Ivory, Chris Johnson and Bilal Powell helped power a rushing attack that gained 212 yards last Sunday — and could be a sneak peek at what the Jets’ opponents might have to deal with on a weekly basis.
The formula for the New York Jets to beat the Green Bay Packers is quite obvious: establish the power running game on offense and apply consistent pressure on defense.
Chris Ivory burst through a few tackle attempts for a 71-yard touchdown run midway through the fourth quarter, and the New York Jets’ defense clamped down on Oakland rookie quarterback Derek Carr in a 19-14 victory Sunday.
Chris Johnson is going to be asked to do a lot for the Jets this season. So far, he’s shown that age is just a number and he’s capable of being what he once was.
Is the idea to revamp “ground and pound” or for the Jets to strive for balance on offense? We will find out soon enough.
Despite the talk of competition, it seems this is Geno’s job to lose. Michael Vick was listed as the backup, and third-stringer Matt Simms had the edge over rookie Tajh Boyd.
The Jets are stacked at running back. It’s the order of things that will need some time to figure out.
The way the Jets see it, the sky is still the limit for Chris Johnson, regardless of his age and the fact that so many people think he’s lost a step.
Ground-and-Pound? Thunder-and-Lightning? Johnson-and-Ivory? It doesn’t matter what you call it. It’s a backfield — a real, live, legitimate, threatening backfield.
