If last week’s declaration that David Harris is the most underrated player in the NFL is any indication, Rex Ryan will be as bombastic as ever this season — mostly because he’s right.
On Nov. 9 and 10, 1938, Nazis torched synagogues, vandalized Jewish homes and arrested some 30,000 Jewish men and sent them to concentration camps.
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 New York Jets released veteran linebackers Bart Scott and Calvin Pace and three other players, clearing about $31 million in salary cap space.
If Revis decides after next year that he wants another big payday, then the Jets will be left with no Revis and no compensation were he to depart via free agency.
There’s not an easy answer to the Revis conundrum. Rebuilding an empty Jets roster is the key to the process for the new GM. Starting with the best defensive player in the sport should be the way to go.
It isn’t one moment or mantra or mistake that felled the Jets this year, or any of the last 43 years. There is a systemic sickness in them, and it’s hard to find a cure.
A Palestinian rocket targeted Tel Aviv on the third day of an Israeli military operation against militants in the Gaza Strip. Sirens wailed across the city Friday afternoon shortly before the explosion sounded out.
