It is just OTAs, but New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan sent the wrong message on Thursday when he took his team bowling instead of onto the field.
There was no signage, no direction — just chaos. Perhaps track officials were too busy with the sound of coins and cash to hear the chaos just outside Belmont Park.
If he can stay healthy — and admittedly that is a big if — he could and should be penciled in as the Week 1 starter. That might not fit the narrative Jets management would want to promote, but it would win games.
The NFL Draft is just a few days away, and for former Boston College tight end Mike Naples, the hard work is set to pay off.
When I started this whole process a couple of months ago at TEST Parisi Football Academy, it all seemed so distant. Now, it was here.
There is a method to John Idzik’s perceived madness. Everything that the Jets’ general manager has done — or hasn’t done — during the first full week of free agency has been part of a deliberate blueprint, a source said Tuesday.
This was the offseason that the New York Jets wanted from general manager John Idzik. And after two full days of free agency, it was exactly what the team needed.
With my Pro Day up at Boston College next week on March 12, I’m beginning to see that all this work and effort finally has a goal.
The New York Jets have put the franchise tag on kicker Nick Folk, which will ensure the player known as “Folk Hero” will be paid among the top five kickers in the league. And now the Jets are showing him the money. But they need to show him more.
As far as the fans and many in the media go, it is almost a foregone conclusion that Mark Sanchez will not return to the Jets for a sixth season. And yet it may not be that simple. Nor, frankly, should it be.
Each week, Naples will blog exclusively for CBS New York on his draft process, taking us into the life of a prospect up through being signed by an NFL team.
This is being billed as New York City’s Super Bowl even though most of the players on the Broncos and the Seahawks won’t step foot outside of New Jersey this week.
It is the Twitter hashtag that is sweeping the Tri-State Area, all in support of New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan and a fan movement that is embraced by hundreds and thousands of fans who want to see Ryan return.
With even an average quarterback, dare the name of Sanchez be inserted here, the Jets would be a much better team.
Ryan can’t be blamed for this latest disaster on offense. His defense, despite a massive overhaul and youth movement, is still clicking relatively well. But an offense that is simply putrid shouldn’t be his fault.
