Rex Ryan’s job could be in jeopardy if the Jets fail to make the playoffs for the fourth straight year. But he doesn’t think that’ll be an issue. Neither do his players.
Rex Ryan often gets singled out for what is perceived as an over-the-top cockiness. DeMario Davis simply calls what his coach has confidence — and says it’s something the Jets have to a man.
“We embrace the challenges, this team,” tight end Konrad Reuland said. “We truly believe we can beat any team we line up against.”
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 have had some incredible moments through seven weeks of the season, but they remain a work in progress. Nobody knows this more than defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson and linebacker DeMario Davis.
When Ryan’s defense stops opponents on a weekly basis, we take it for granted and point to the aspects of coaching that he doesn’t excel at.
Sure, the Jets have a handful of new faces. And, yes, there are a couple of injuries to deal with. But none of that is keeping Ryan from issuing a bold prediction: The Jets will rank among the top five defenses in the NFL this season.
The 27-year-old Lansanah signed with the Jets and is back in the NFL for the first time since the 2009 season.
DeMario Davis has his beliefs as a Christian, and he has his beliefs about respecting others. For the Jets linebacker, the latter trumps all.
Darrelle Revis is moving closer to getting back on the football field. Whether that’s with the New York Jets next season remains to be seen.
The New York Jets released veteran linebackers Bart Scott and Calvin Pace and three other players, clearing about $31 million in salary cap space.
Rex Ryan may want to make this an issue about how real men stand up and don’t hide behind anonymous quotes. But he’s missing the point.
As the Jets head into their bye week, you know what you can say about Gang Green’s playoff chances? Bye Bye!
Bart Scott’s streak of 119 games came to an end on Sunday as he missed the Jets’ game against the Dolphins.
Jets fans can now take a deep breath. If they can get to 4-4 at the bye, they’ll be alive and kicking.
