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.
“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.”
“You’ve got to have a backbone, because guys are saying, ‘F–k you!’ and ‘I want to kill you!’ It’s crazy, but I’ve been getting death threats from them since my first holdout (in 2010). It’s just bitter Jets fans.”
If the defense can continue to give a solid account of itself, the team will have a chance to improve and Ryan may just put a crimp in Idzik’s offseason plans to hire a new head coach.
The Jets were better than the Patriots on Sunday. Defensive end Sheldon Richardson says Gang Green is better than New England, period.
Ryan wants his players to hold out on their significant others. And no, the coach wasn’t talking about sex, no matter what rookie Sheldon Richardson thinks.
If the Falcons don’t start winning, they can forget about those Super Bowl hopes. Meanwhile, the Jets don’t want to slip below .500 — especially on national television.
When Ryan’s defense stops opponents on a weekly basis, we take it for granted and point to the aspects of coaching that he doesn’t excel at.
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.
Jets rookie cornerback Dee Milliner injured a hamstring at practice and his status for the team’s game at Tennessee on Sunday was uncertain.
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.
Two weeks ago if anyone had said the Jets had a legitimate shot to go into Foxboro in Week 2 and win that person likely would have been laughed out of the room. But the NFL has a strange way of leveling the playing field.
If the defense holds up as well as it did against Tampa Bay, rookie QB Geno Smith might just get a chance to learn while winning, which is far better than learning while losing.
“I moved on from those experiences I had,” Revis said. “I had a great six years there. Now I’ve just got to move on. I’ve got a new start ahead of me, with a new team and I’m excited to be a Buccaneer.”
