Coach Rex Ryan made the bold choice to stick with Sanchez, and he disagrees with the notion that his future is tied to the success of the quarterback.
“You’ve got to appreciate our fans,” Ryan said he told Scott. “Obviously, in the good times it’s much easier than in the bad times, so I had that conversation with Bart.”
“The record says what’s going on,” Johnson said during practice. “We’re a 3-6 team. Are we happy? Are they happy? Are the players happy? I know the fans aren’t happy. The answer is no. We’re not happy. We’re not happy with 3-6.”
The New York Jets have promoted linebacker Ricky Sapp from the practice squad to the active roster and added safety Antonio Allen to the practice squad.
Cromartie nearly let out an obscenity when he was first asked about Bush’s comments, before catching himself and adding,”I’m not going to say what I really want to say about Reggie Bush.”
“I’m grateful for another opportunity to play this guy, and he will remember that hit,” Landry said. “Every time he sees me, he will remember that hit. If I’m in the box or I’m coming downhill, whatever, he will remember that hit.”
Ryan insisted on Monday that the Jets “go down to win,” and those who think that the team was playing “scared” in a 29-26 defeat are “ridiculous.”
New York Jets backup running backs Joe McKnight and Bilal Powell did not participate in practice, and their availability for the team’s game on Sunday at New England is uncertain.
The star cornerback is scheduled to have surgery on Tuesday to repair a torn knee ligament suffered three weeks ago in a win at Miami. While he knows the road to recovery will be arduous, Revis expects to be playing at an elite level next season.
There will be no dramatic Super Bowl return for Darrelle Revis. Head coach Rex Ryan said Revis will have surgery next week to repair the torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, suffered almost three weeks ago at Miami.
Already off to their best start since the magical 2006 season — the year when Rutgers finished 11-2 and won the first bowl game in program history — the Scarlet Knights need this hot start to become credible again.
The energetic do-it-all backup quarterback has been reduced mainly to a bit player. Not exactly what he — or everyone — expected. But if Tebow is frustrated with his limited role so far, Rex Ryan doesn’t sense it.
The season just continues to spiral downward for Gang Green. Santonio Holmes will miss the rest of this season with an injured left foot, leaving the struggling New York Jets without their top offensive playmaker.
Rex Ryan has not dashed his Super Bowl hopes — or the chance that Darrelle Revis will be there on the field with the New York Jets this season.
This year the Jets have not only spoken about moving on from the toxicity of a season ago, but in their actions they’ve done just that.
