Wilkerson and Harvin could provide the Jets with a big lift on Sunday versus the New England Patriots.
As the winds of change start to blow let’s not forget what Rex Ryan brought to the New York Jets organization.
Gang Green enters this game relatively healthy. Can the Jets find a way to beat one of the league’s best teams?
The New York Jets and nine-time Pro Bowl safety Ed Reed have agreed to terms on a contract, reuniting coach Rex Ryan with one of his favorite players.
“The goal is to win the division,” Wilkerson told Joe & Evan. “And like I said, these last seven games we feel we can win … I’m confident in myself and my teammates that we’re gonna get the job done.”
“You’ve got to have a backbone, because guys are saying, ‘F–k you!’ and ‘I want to kill you!’ It’s crazy, but I’ve been getting death threats from them since my first holdout (in 2010). It’s just bitter Jets fans.”
“I look at it now and I had the time of my life as a Jet,” Moore said. “I’m proud to be a Jet. I enjoyed my time here. Today, I am a bigger Jets fan than I was when I ran out on Sundays in full uniform.”
The 6-foot-4, 260-pounder left Sunday’s game against the Bengals in the third quarter with a head injury and never returned. He caught one pass for nine yards before departing.
Even though he’s turned into a bit of a sympathetic figure, the former first-round pick still does not have many supporters. Forbes released its list of the most disliked players in the NFL on Monday, and the 26-year-old came in fifth.
“We weren’t on the second level when we pushed him, no,” Belichick said following the disappointing loss. “You can’t push from the second level. I didn’t think we did that.”
With Mayo and Wilfork out the Jets should look to establish the running game early and often.
“How am I feeling right now? Like you guys are interrupting my treatment time right now,” Holmes told members of the media during his weekly news conference.
New York Jets rookie cornerback Dee Milliner returned to practice on a limited basis for the first time since injuring a hamstring in practice three weeks ago.
“I feel like it’s going to be a hunger game,” he said. “I think it’s a must-win for us, definitely, if we want to win this division. It’s definitely a hunger game and we have to go out there and, as we say, eat.”
“I think having the Tim Tebow circus out of here, and having different things that were kind of holding this team back, are starting to go out the window,” Colon said.
