The New York Jets and nine-time Pro Bowl safety Ed Reed have agreed to terms on a contract, reuniting coach Rex Ryan with one of his favorite players.
This is not, nor was it expected to be, a playoff team. For those who cling to the belief that the Jets defense is worthy enough to keep them competitive in every game, think again.
New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes is out, as expected, for the team’s game against the New England Patriots because of a hamstring injury.
New York Jets rookie cornerback Dee Milliner returned to practice on a limited basis for the first time since injuring a hamstring in practice three weeks ago.
The loss could have been a costly one for New York, which saw running backs Bilal Powell (shoulder) and Mike Goodson (left knee), wide receiver Clyde Gates (shoulder) and cornerback Kyle Wilson (head) all leave with injuries.
Rex Ryan feels the Jets must strive for consistency. “We’re striving for consistency and we’re not quite there. We have to get there in a hurry,” Ryan said.
After watching the Jets bumble their way to a 38-13 loss in Tennessee, I thought there’s no way things could get any worse. Then I took a look at the schedule for the next five weeks and had to talk myself down from the ledge.
Running back Chris Ivory and rookie cornerback Dee Milliner will not play in the team’s game at Tennessee on Sunday because of injured hamstrings.
Jets rookie cornerback Dee Milliner injured a hamstring at practice and his status for the team’s game at Tennessee on Sunday was uncertain.
Whenever a player commits an infraction on the practice field, everyone out there – from coach Rex Ryan to owner Woody Johnson – needs to drop and give ‘em 10.
So why was this lopsided game not decided until the Bills’ final possession? Look no further than the Jets’ bizarre case of what-in-the-world-is-going-on mental hiccups.
At the beginning of camp, we dissected the offense under new coordinator Marty Mornhinweg. Now, we take a look at defense and special teams.
“I hope when he plays, there are those comparisons, and I understand where people are coming from,” Rex Ryan said. “But Darrelle was a special player. Dee Milliner is never going to be Darrelle Revis. He’s going to be Dee Milliner.”
Darrelle Revis is long gone. So is Tim Tebow. And so are several other players from last year’s dismal Jets team. It’s time to start fresh at Camp Cortland.
Gone is the man considered by many to be one of the best players in team history, and perhaps the best cornerback in the NFL. But, Rex Ryan believes Antonio Cromartie can handle the load of being the main guy.
