Revis needs to play above himself, which means that he has to be better than the best. It is a tall order for the league’s best defensive player, but the fate of the Jets’ season rests on Revis being better than himself.
Hopefully, someday, Hunter’s four-year legacy with the Jets will be measured by the man he showed over the past 10 days, and not just his rough 2011 season on the field.
“I have to take full advantage of it,” Howard said. “When you get a new chance, you always have to have a positive outlook. I have the mindset to show what I can do.”
“I think more than anything you would want people to say, ‘There’s someone that helps the team win football games,’” Tebow told Boomer & Carton.
The Jets’ backup quarterback showed in his Thursday morning interview with WFAN’s “Boomer & Carton” that he has the same ability to escape tough questions as he has to evade blitzing defensive linemen with his quick feet.
The most discussed, debated and covered franchise by far during training camp, the Jets have plenty of question marks heading into the 2012 season.
First came the comment. Then, the backlash. And coming soon: the interview.
The New York Jets wrapped up a busy training camp at SUNY Cortland on Thursday after three weeks filled with headlines and all eyes on Tim Tebow — all the time.
The NFL Kickoff issue of GQ magazine has hit newsstands in New York City, and guess who’s on the cover. Hint: he’s not even a starter.
Getting back to Cortland could not have come at a better time for the Jets. They are trying to turn the page on the locker room turmoil of a year ago as they look to regain the chemistry and the magic that they had during the first two years of the Rex Ryan era.
Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes, who missed the first two weeks of the team’s OTAs because he was visiting American troops in Germany, pulled himself out of practice on Thursday, according to CBSSports.com.
Jets wide receiver/return specialist Jeremy Kerley didn’t participate in the team’s OTA drills on Thursday because of hamstring tightness. The 23-year-old told reporters that he doesn’t believe it’s a serious matter.
The New York Jets have selected North Carolina defensive end Quinton Coples, giving Rex Ryan’s defense the pass rusher it coveted. Coples had 23 sacks in four seasons with the Tar Heels, including 17 1/2 in his last two years.
The Jets flexed their Napoleon complex by trading for Tim Tebow – perhaps the last player they need right now. It was a way of acting out, Big Blue’s little bro showing the world that they can grab a headline or two, too.
Tim Tebow made his first appearance as a New York Jet at a news conference at the team’s training facility in New Jersey.
