Geno Smith took some razzing from his coaches as they watched film of New York’s victory. This time, it wasn’t for a turnover. It was for the rookie quarterback acting like a tough guy.
All teams look like they tank when they get torched. But the Jets never quit. They can play dumb, but they never play dead. And that is a tribute to Rex Ryan, who still hasn’t lost his team.
The answer lies not in the stars, as Shakespeare’s evil Cassius might say, but with his players. And those guys might well prove the death of Rex Ryan as a Jets head coach.
The New York Jets set a season high for points and snapped a three-game skid with a 37-27 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
For the first time in a while the New York Jets will be fielding a relatively healthy offensive unit. Will this allow Marty Mornhinweg to open up the playbook?
Struggling Jets QB Geno Smith is getting one of his best targets back against Oakland in receiver Jeremy Kerley.
The New York Jets safety is no longer the hard-hitting, ball-hawking youngster who could single-handedly change a game. But, Reed insists, he’s still pretty darn good.
New York Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley fully participated in practice for the first time since dislocating his left elbow last month and is expected to play Sunday against the Oakland Raiders.
Geno Smith has been mistake-prone, and so has Dee Milliner. But Sheldon Richardson has been outstanding, and the fact that the Jets have five rookies starting, well, the coach thinks that bodes well for the franchise.
The New York Jets have placed kick returner-wide receiver Josh Cribbs on injured reserve and signed kick returner Darius Reynaud.
It’s not easy to work under these conditions. In fact, it’s downright uncomfortable. It’s especially tough if you’re expendable. The pressure is unbearable. You just know the end is coming.
Wonder what Tim Tebow thinks of this. And Kellen Clemens. Mark Sanchez, too. Maybe, in Mississippi, Brett Favre is tracking the Jets quarterback situation and wondering, Can it really be this bad?
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.
The Jets have hit rock bottom with their offensive woes. Can Geno Smith bring the Jets back to their winning ways?
Ryan can’t be blamed for this latest disaster on offense. His defense, despite a massive overhaul and youth movement, is still clicking relatively well. But an offense that is simply putrid shouldn’t be his fault.
