“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.”
They won’t be favored when they return from a bye week to play at Seattle in Week 10 or when they host the Patriots the following week, but they have an excellent chance of going 8-1 or 7-2 in the final nine games.
Who will have more return yards n Week 8 — David Wilson or Joe McKnight? It’s Tweet Throwdown time!
3-3? The Patriots? It’s hard to believe, but as Bill Parcells once said, “You are what your record says you are.”
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.
Jets fans can now take a deep breath. If they can get to 4-4 at the bye, they’ll be alive and kicking.
They played hard and they played better, but they fell short against the Texans on Monday night at MetLife Stadium. They were fortunate that the 5-0 Texans didn’t play their best game, but the Jets couldn’t take advantage of the opportunities that were in front of them.
Mark Sanchez finished 14 of 31 for 230 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions — but was done in by a few tipped passes.
Arian Foster ran for 152 yards and a touchdown, and the Texans stayed unbeaten by defeating the New York Jets for the first time in team history, hanging on for a 23-17 victory Monday night.
It seems the Jets have some help en route at the cornerback position. But it’ll come with some baggage.
Craig didn’t want to hear McKnight’s complaints, while Boomer – who played professional football – was certainly able to understand where the kid is coming from…
Why don’t we just get it over with and relegate the Jets to the Public Schools Athletic League?
It wasn’t an act of desperation, but could be one of inspiration. If McKnight doesn’t pan out, then he’ll go back to offense and will continue to not carry the ball as the Jets’ No. 3 running back.
“I mean, I was drafted as a running back,” the former Southern California star said. “The way I took it was I wasn’t good enough to play running back. I don’t know if that’s the case or not, but that’s the way I’m looking at it right now.”
