The problem for the 3-3 and enigmatic Jets is they are starting what is likely a season-defining stretch of games — three straight against first-place teams. Muhammad Wilkerson said the team is well aware of the daunting task ahead.
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.
“I mean, that’s just how I am,” Smith said Wednesday. “My Mom thought it was weird. I never really got big on Christmas when I was a kid. That’s just how I was all the time.”
Smith followed up a turnover-laden stinker in Week 4 with a gem at the Georgia Dome, going 16-of 20 for 199 yards and three scores.
Sunday’s match-up versus the Pittsburgh Steelers has trap game written all over it. Will the Jets look past Pittsburgh with an eye on New England?
Rex Ryan’s motivational ploy of the week heading into Monday night’s game in Atlanta was demanding that his Jets put aside the brutal loss from the week before and just play with fearlessness. It’s safe to say they got the message.
Wilkerson was docked $15,785 for roughing the passer, while Coples was fined $7,875 for unnecessary roughness. Both were surprised at the fines, especially since no penalties were called on the field.
Prior to Jerry Recco’s first update of the morning, Craig concluded that Reds pitcher Mat Latos’ lovely wife Dallas looks like a Dallas. Due to copyright laws, you’ll just have to take my word for it or Google her yourself.
The Jets are hurting following their blowout loss to Tennessee last Sunday. Compounding that, some seem to think the hit Muhammad Wilkerson delivered to Titans quarterback Jake Locker may have been dirty.
Jake Locker was having his way with the Jets, throwing three touchdown passes, before going down with 11:14 left in the third quarter.
There are good things happening right now as Smith is making progress, Powell has some chops as a running back and the defense is playing the way a Ryan defense is supposed to.
The Jets are by no means a great football team. But they have all the makings of being one some day because they are physical and impose their will in the places that matter most: the trenches.
Muhammad Wilkerson likes what he is seeing from the Jets, the team nobody gave a shot back when the season started. The big defensive end told WFAN on Tuesday that the 2-1 start is not an aberration.
The New York Jets’ outside linebacker will make his regular-season debut Sunday against the Buffalo Bills, a month after having surgery on his fractured right ankle. Coples was listed as probable on the team’s injury report Friday.
New York Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley fully participated in practice Wednesday after he missed the team’s game at New England last Thursday with a concussion.
