The Jets lost to an inferior team sans its most superior player and nothing to play for. In a league built by parity, the Jets remain a parody.
The Jets just weren’t good enough to be a playoff team in 2011-12. Sunday’s 19-17 loss to the Dolphins was a fitting end to a season full of unfulfilled promises, inconsistent play, and turmoil.
Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer is aware of the mounting criticism. “It’s out of my control. I’m an excellent football coach,” he said.
Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson says Sunday’s game at Miami could possibly be the last of his career if New York does not make the playoffs.
Forget the completion ratio. Forget the hard stats on offense. There’s just one number needed to understand about how the Jets’ offense is playing these days: 13.
It took 14 weeks of the NFL season but the Jets finally have found and established their identity, looking every bit the part of the playoff caliber team most envisioned during preseason.
This was the Jets team Rex Ryan had promised all season. No doubt about it.
The Jets maintained their pace in the AFC playoff race by defeating the Kansas City Chiefs 37-10 on Sunday.
Rex Ryan doesn’t think the MetLife Stadium crowd will be booing Mark Sanchez Sunday. At least, not before the game.
The Jets are beginning to click in all areas, inspiring hopes of a playoff berth. A favorable end of season schedule gives Gang Green a solid shot.
Jets running back Joe McKnight, who leads the NFL in kick return average, has a hyperextended right elbow that could sideline him for the team’s next game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Practically a statistical zero in Buffalo, Maybin has revived his NFL career with Ryan and the Jets. Hey, the Bills’ loss is the Jets’ gain.
Running back LaDainian Tomlinson and wide receiver Jeremy Kerley missed New York’s previous two games with left knee injuries but are back in time for Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins.
When destiny is not in your hands, all you can do is take care of your business and hope for the best.
LaDainian Tomlinson is feeling better than he usually does at this point in the season. And that’s even coming off a sprained left knee.
