This year the Jets have not only spoken about moving on from the toxicity of a season ago, but in their actions they’ve done just that.
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.
The Jets must collectively step up now that Darrelle Revis is lost for the season.
For the first time since 1869 – OK, OK, for the first time in the past six years, Rutgers might finally be reaching their potential among the best teams in college football.
Bart Scott should save his energy for the field and not media altercations.
He isn’t the “Sanchise.” It is something that Jets fans need to come to grips with; the reality that now in his fourth year, quarterback Mark Sanchez isn’t going to be the second coming of Joe Namath.
Did the Jets underutilize Tim Tebow against the Steelers?
The defining moment from Thursday night’s Rutgers win was a little moment away from the field, when head coach Kyle Flood showed that he was the right man for the job — that would be the job of winning games and molding boys into men.
Simply, Tim Tebow is a fighter and not one to back down from a challenge. It would be out of personality for Tebow to not want to stick it out in New York, and the reason might well go beyond the field.
Mission already accomplished for the Wildcat. With all the focus on what Tim Tebow’s role is going to be, his part in the Jets’ offense is flying under the radar.
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.
