The problem for the 3-3 and enigmatic Jets is they are starting what is likely a season-defining stretch of games — three straight against first-place teams. Muhammad Wilkerson said the team is well aware of the daunting task ahead.
“There were a lot of bogus calls in that game,” Rolle told Benigno and Roberts. “I will admit, there were a lot of calls that should not have been made.”
As far as his own play is concerned, Eli Manning has said things aren’t as bad as they seem. Terry Bradshaw disagrees.
Rex Ryan’s motivational ploy of the week heading into Monday night’s game in Atlanta was demanding that his Jets put aside the brutal loss from the week before and just play with fearlessness. It’s safe to say they got the message.
Wilkerson was docked $15,785 for roughing the passer, while Coples was fined $7,875 for unnecessary roughness. Both were surprised at the fines, especially since no penalties were called on the field.
By now you’ve heard: Antrel Rolle thinks the Giants can salvage their season by running the table after an 0-4 start. He’s on a mission to make everyone believe in Big Blue — even some in his own locker room.
The NHL used to be about one thing and one thing only: hockey. The NHL is now no longer about hockey; it’s about pretty much everything but hockey as I knew it.
Muhammad Wilkerson likes what he is seeing from the Jets, the team nobody gave a shot back when the season started. The big defensive end told WFAN on Tuesday that the 2-1 start is not an aberration.
“We’re all friends with one another,” Rolle said. “But are we going out there and fighting for the guy beside us? Absolutely not. There’s no way I can hide it, sugercoat it, whatever you want to say. There’s no way I can hide that.”
The Hall-of-Fame quarterback and national television analyst said the league is disrespecting teams by scheduling them across the pond.
“They don’t like themselves,” the two-time Super Bowl champion told Joe & Evan. “That’s what it really comes down to. They don’t like each other. They’re not willing to fight for each other.”
New York Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley fully participated in practice Wednesday after he missed the team’s game at New England last Thursday with a concussion.
“We have a lack of excitement on the sideline,” the two-time Pro Bowler told reporters. “When I look up and down the sidelines, sometimes we’re in it and sometimes we’re not. I don’t know what the reason is for that.”
“This is our house, and we protect our house, and that’s just the way it goes,” Rolle said. “If we go out there and play consistently and play the way I know we know how to play as a team, then absolutely, we’ll be there without a doubt.”
The New Jersey Devils and WFAN Sports Radio 66 AM and 101.9 FM announced the extension of their multi-year partnership on Thursday.
