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.
Say what you will of Wayne Hunter’s play, he has owned up to every mistake and only ever worked hard at his craft. He deserved better.
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.
Cancel your breakfast plans; Thursday morning on WFAN will be must-listen radio. And the star attraction will be backup quarterback Tim Tebow, set to sit down with two of his harshest critics.

Call it what it is, but this fight isn’t a circus. Instead, it was the fight of a team hungry to prove a point. It is a point that they might just make with the rest of the league in Week 1.
On a day when the blue and white get a black eye, it is programs like Rutgers that shine just a little brighter.
It has the look and feel of a debacle. In other words, it is something that only the Mets could come up with.
The Yankees can’t keep on going like this and hope to be a playoff contender. An overreliance on their relief pitchers is not a sustainable model to keep winning baseball games let alone play in the postseason.
It is still unsure as to whether or not Santonio Holmes has matured since last year’s disappointing season.
Two statement series separated by a little over 100 miles bore different messages for fans of both the Mets and the Yankees but both messages, however, have each set of fans smiling.
If Ozzie Guillen is the quick-fix it takes to win the NL East, the Mets should proudly sign up for a losing season.
