Rex Ryan’s job security has been on a roller-coaster ride. Well, that’s the assumption. Only Woody Johnson knows the truth. However, conventional wisdom suggests Ryan’s job will be on the line over the final four games of the regular season.
“Things are not gonna work out in your favor all the time. That doesn’t mean that you hang your head low. You gotta go out there, and you get better. You play football, you play with pride.”
Muhammad Wilkerson said Tuesday that his defense, as good as it has been this season, could be doing more to help out beleaguered Geno Smith.
“With Dallas, we all understand that it’s a division opponent, it’s a division rival. But at the same time, like I said, every game from this moment on is a must-win game.”
If Muhammad Wilkerson is nothing else, he’s honest and calls ‘em like he sees ‘em. And heading into a game at Baltimore, he doesn’t see the Jets as being as good as they should be.
“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.”
Antrel Rolle joined “Joe and Evan” and called Giants running back Andre Brown “the player of the game” in Sunday’s victory over the Raiders.
Antrel Rolle clarified that he’s against bullying, and that Martin is not as much to blame as Incognito. He did maintain, however, that Martin “does take some accountability.”
“Richie Incognito, is he wrong? Absolutely,” Rolle told Joe & Evan. “But I think the other guy is just as much to blame because he’s allowed it to happen.”
Most experts also had the Jets penciled in as 3-6 heading into their bye. Muhammad Wilkerson and Co. obviously had other ideas, beating two of the three first-place teams they faced during the hardest part of their schedule.
He perpetuated maybe the greatest fraud in sports history. But he claims that he did it for all the right reasons.
“I think the pressure is on now more than ever,” the two-time Pro Bowler told Joe & Evan. “In my eyes, we have to win out. That’s the way I look at it. I’m sure that’s the way our team looks at it. We have to win out.”
The Jets have had some incredible moments through seven weeks of the season, but they remain a work in progress. Nobody knows this more than defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson and linebacker DeMario Davis.
“We’re 0-6,” Giants safety Antrel Rolle said. “We’ve dug a huge hole for ourselves, a very huge hole for ourselves. But the season’s not over for us yet. And that’s our mindset, that has to be our mindset.”
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.
