The Jets and Giants’ seasons end on Sunday, of course. But neither squad should go unrepresented on Friday night when the NFL announces its Pro Bowl squad at 9 p.m.
The New York defense will be facing a Cleveland team that is missing one of their best playmakers on offense. Will Gang Green be able to take advantage?
The Jets’ players seem to have just one wish this holiday season: bring head coach Rex Ryan back!
The last time the Jets won consecutive games was just a shade over a year ago. If they want to keep their playoff hopes alive they will almost certainly have to do it again, for starters.
Rex Ryan’s job security has been on a roller-coaster ride. Well, that’s the assumption. Only Woody Johnson knows the truth. However, conventional wisdom suggests Ryan’s job will be on the line over the final four games of the regular season.
We New York fans love our teams through thick and thin, and there are actually a few things that give us hope for a better 2014.
Muhammad Wilkerson said Tuesday that his defense, as good as it has been this season, could be doing more to help out beleaguered Geno Smith.
“I think we’re capable of being there. If guys just do their jobs and do their assignments and fix the mental breakdowns that we’ve been having, I think we’ll finish strong and be a playoff team.”
If Muhammad Wilkerson is nothing else, he’s honest and calls ’em like he sees ’em. And heading into a game at Baltimore, he doesn’t see the Jets as being as good as they should be.
Certainly it is a comfortable situation, Ed Reed is reunited with Rex Ryan and Dennis Thurman from their days together in Baltimore, and Reed in a defense in which he fits like a glove.
For Rex Ryan to keep proving he has more lives than Michael Myers, he and his Jets need to beat the Bills this weekend.
“The goal is to win the division,” Wilkerson told Joe & Evan. “And like I said, these last seven games we feel we can win … I’m confident in myself and my teammates that we’re gonna get the job done.”
Rex Ryan has defied the odds and delivered an unexpected rebound season — as the Jets stand at 5-4.
A look at the New York Jets players that exceeded expectations and those that came up short in the first nine games of the 2013 season.
Here’s a stunner: The Jets would be in the playoffs if the regular season ended today. Yes, those Jets. The group many thought would struggle to come close to last year’s total of six wins.
