The New York Jets could be without two important pieces on Monday night as defensive back Dee Milliner has been listed as doubtful with wide receiver Eric Decker identified as questionable. Both of these injuries will put pressure on head coach Rex Ryan and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg to make adjustments to their game plans.
New York Jets cornerback Dee Milliner is now dealing with tightness in his quadriceps in addition to a nagging high ankle sprain, leaving his status uncertain for Monday night’s game against the Chicago Bears.
Eric Decker might be able to play without practicing — as long as his hamstring lets him.
Decker tweaked his right hamstring during the Jets’ 31-24 loss at Green Bay, aggravating an injury he dealt with during training camp.
Sure, it’s just one loss. But to try to take positives from Sunday’s disaster at Lambeau Field would really expose a disturbing case of denial. The Jets beat themselves and there’s just no way to spin it.
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.
I’m not dismissing the possibility that the Jets will roll over the Raiders and their rookie quarterback, but I’ve been fooled so many times in the past that the following tenet is ingrained in my soul: Beware of high expectations.
The wish list for the Jets’ offense was simple, yet ambitious. Playmakers — real difference makers — were needed, and general manager John Idzik went shopping during the offseason.
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.
Smith is brimming with confidence, and with that comes increased respect in the locker room. The bottom line, though, is the success — or failure — of Rex Ryan’s team could depend on Smith’s performance this season.
With Mark Sanchez no longer around, Stephen Hill has become the unofficial whipping boy among Jets fans. And he’s done little this summer to earn a reprieve.
The Jets marquee offseason signing is more than just a number one receiver for Gang Green.
Rex Ryan, Eric Decker, Geno Smith and more joined Boomer & Carton on Wednesday morning from Jets camp. You can find all the audio from the action-packed show right here.
After hearing that Eric Decker watched videos of Geno Smith before making his decision to sign with the Jets, Boomer reminded Craigie that he did a little research of his own.
Anyone else tired of hearing about cornerbacks? The Jets need to start doing their defense a favor by moving the ball and putting up points like a 21st century NFL team.
