Heading into the 2012 season, it was assumed the Jets would be very good defensively. But I’m here to tell you what you probably already know: This unit could very well be a lot more than that.
Although there’s no saying the Jets are going to make a run at a Super Bowl anytime soon, they’re still not going to be half as bad as Saturday night’s showing. At least you’d better hope not, or it’s going to be a long year.
New York Jets defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson is expected to be ready for training camp next month after suffering minor injuries in a two-car crash early Saturday.
Mike DeVito doesn’t want to be seen as the first victim of big rookie defensive lineman Quinton Coples.
Rex Ryan declared his confidence in the Jets’ draft selections and called Gang Green’s strength in depth “unusual.”
The New York Jets have selected North Carolina defensive end Quinton Coples, giving Rex Ryan’s defense the pass rusher it coveted. Coples had 23 sacks in four seasons with the Tar Heels, including 17 1/2 in his last two years.
In Part I of my two-part series on the Jets’ offseason wish list I’m focusing on defense, because, to me, this is where this team is already built to succeed. The Jets have holes, but they are not nearly as pronounced as they are on offense.
Whatever way the season ends, the New York Jets are in need of an infusion of talent to ensure that they won’t repeat the same misteps next season.
Even with gloom and doom being the overwhelming feeling among fans and the media, the Jets believe they can still turn things around.
There have been no signs of shyness on the football field as Wilkerson is playing with the confidence of a veteran.
The Jets opened with two straight home wins, but face an early-season test in which they’ll hit the road for three consecutive weeks — a stretch they haven’t seen in the regular season since the strike-shortened 1982 season.
Under normal conditions, the Jets would be sky high after their 32-3 win over the Jaguars, but they are holding their collective breaths and crossing their fingers about the status of Pro Bowl center Nick Mangold.
The Jets needed to start faster, coach Rex Ryan told his team on Saturday, return to their “Ground-and-Pound” approach and protect quarterback Mark Sanchez. Check. Check. And, check.
Rex Ryan and the Jets had surprised construction workers at the World Trade Center site chanting “J-E-T-S! Jets! Jets! Jets!” on Wednesday.
If you have Jets season tickets, then you paid good money for seats to Thursday night’s preseason finale against the Eagles. The popular thought would be to put some salt and pepper on those tickets and eat them, but I think the game is worth watching.
