Rex Ryan can’t stand the hideous number next to the Jets’ defense on the list of NFL rankings. There it is, a double-digit in black and white, screaming at him unlike anything he’s ever seen.
After whiffing on cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, the Jets need second-year pro Kyle Wilson to step up his game. Let’s just say he had a rough introduction to life in the NFL.
Fired-up Jets linebacker Bart Scott set the tone early in the buildup to Sunday’s AFC championship game against the Steelers. “Can’t Wait!” the never-shy Scott shouted when told ‘Congratulations, see you in Pittsburgh’ after New York’s 28-21 victory over the New England Patriots last Sunday.
The New York Jets have spent the last few days getting back to basics on defense. Good thing it’s only Week 17.
Uh-oh, Darrelle Revis has another ailing hamstring. This time, it’s the cornerback’s right leg that has “a little soreness.”

Rex Ryan and his coaching staff huddled up before the bye-week break and drew up a game plan for an imposing opponent: the New York Jets. It was time for some self-scouting.
In his 25-game career with the Jets, Rex Ryan has successfully replicated the work of Bill Parcells. And, unlike Parcells, Ryan doesn’t strike anyone as the type of guy who’s going to abandon ship for seemingly greener pastures.
Coach Rex Ryan said Thursday that he wants both Darrelle Revis and Calvin Pace to travel with the team Friday rather than have them stay back at the facility to rehabilitate their injuries.
The win in Miami doesn’t mean the Jets are better than they really are. They still have a ton of work to do if they are to become the team that many think can win a Super Bowl.
In case you haven’t noticed, I really enjoy writing this column. It fills me with a sense of purpose professionally that goes beyond what I do when I’m in the office. The beauty of writing about the Jets from home is my distraction level is often quite manageable. Not today, though.
