If you look at the big picture, Monday night’s loss — which mercifully eliminated the Jets from the AFC playoff race — was a good thing for the franchise. And the comic ineptitude made it even better.
Signing Braylon Edwards sends a dangerous message to the rest of the Jets’ locker room.
Dustin Keller and Stephen Hill did not travel with the Jets to Tennessee.
Rex Ryan expects Braylon Edwards and Tim Tebow to ready for the Jets’ Monday night game against the Titans.
Braylon Edwards is back with the New York Jets — a week after bashing them. The veteran wide receiver was awarded to New York off waivers from Seattle on Tuesday as the Jets try to bolster their injured receiving corps with a familiar face.
Concise, humble, understated. Life would have been a lot easier for Rex Ryan if he had acted like that a long time ago.
Ryan’s swagger made for plenty of headlines during his first three seasons in New York. Now, it’s what the coach doesn’t say that raises some eyebrows.
It was ugly, but the Jets survived with a victory in Jacksonville.
A week after leading the Jets to victory, Greg McElroy is listed as inactive against the Jaguars.
Rex Ryan has no bold message for Bill Belichick and the Patriots this week. Nope, no fightin’ words this time around.
Rex Ryan may want to make this an issue about how real men stand up and don’t hide behind anonymous quotes. But he’s missing the point.
Maybe the winds from Hurricane Sandy can blow the Jets out of town. It can take them all, starting with Mark Sanchez.
His performance in New England showed that he has the stuff to get the job done, but he must now show that over four quarters. Only then will his critics go away, and only Sanchez can shut them up. It remains to be seen if he can do that.
Ryan insisted on Monday that the Jets “go down to win,” and those who think that the team was playing “scared” in a 29-26 defeat are “ridiculous.”
They won’t be favored when they return from a bye week to play at Seattle in Week 10 or when they host the Patriots the following week, but they have an excellent chance of going 8-1 or 7-2 in the final nine games.
