New York Jets running back Chris Ivory is questionable for Sunday which means that running back Bilal Powell will be carrying the load for Gang Green.
Five catches, 154 yards and a game-winning touchdown against the Buffalo Bills. It’s safe to say Santonio Holmes is back, right? Wrong.
Wide receivers in the NFL can either prosper greatly and make a big-time name for themselves or sit quietly in the background and move around from team to team. Kevin Walter is one of the few that has done both, and hopes to excel now with the Titans, since this may be his last chance.
The free-agent running back, who wasn’t expected to re-sign with the Jets, will join Chris Johnson in Tennessee’s backfield.
The NFL has reinstated Gregg Williams after suspending him for his role in the New Orleans Saints’ bounty scandal, and the Titans have added him to their coaching staff.
Football goes in cycles, and the Bills may have a chance to turn things around. However, it was those early days in the AFL that rocketed football to the top, and Wilson should never be forgotten for his role.
Mark Sanchez is right, he may not know who holds his future. All he should know is that his future isn’t here.
“I was just pissed off,” Grandcu said. “I lost $700 on the game. That’s real money. I feel like Sanchez is doing all of these turnovers on purpose.”
Winning is a habit. So is losing. And the Jets have perfected the latter. The Jets are so collectively detached that it’s hard to know if they know the difference.
This is a full-fledged NFL disaster, and there is no turning back right now. The Jets have no quarterback, their receivers are awful and their coaching staff lacks common sense. There is no saving this team.
If you think there were plenty of empty seats this year, just wait and see what MetLife Stadium looks like in 2013.
“Just something to try to give back and show tribute to those families knowing how much they hurt,” Johnson said. “And a situation where on Monday Night Football everybody around the world is watching.”
Watching the Sanchez literally throw away the Jets’ slim playoff hopes with a season-high five turnovers against Tennessee may be the final straw for Rex Ryan.
Chris Johnson went 94 yards for the longest touchdown run in the NFL since 2006 and the Tennessee Titans beat the Jets 14-10 on Monday night to eliminate New York from playoff contention.
The Jets have three games to go. They could very well win all three but still not make the playoffs. But they have the right approach, maybe for the first time in a long time.
