NFL Injury Report:
New York Jets wide receiver, Santonio Holmes, is rehabbing a
Lisfranc injury he suffered in 2012. Coach
Holmes still has not decided when and if he will return. This is what happens when you let a player as
lazy as a nurse shark dictate when he can come back on the field.
Alper of NBCSports reports that even though Holmes is practicing and
running routes (at half speed) and been added to the active roster, Holmes has
yet to put a timetable on his return.
Holmes in a statement made through the team stated, “I have a long
career ahead of me, so I’m going to take the best risk and the best chances for
myself and for the team.”
I think it is very important to note that Holmes said “myself”
first and “team” second. There is no “I”
in team, but there is a “me.” Holmes is
a “me” type player. Always has been and
always will be. More so in this case,
what is best for Holmes might not coincide with what is best for the Jets.
Let us be real here folks.
What is going on here is that Holmes is a realist. He knows the Jets are not going to the
playoffs this year and he knows that the Jets do not even know who will be the
quarterback from one game to the next. Therefore,
Holmes has an out. He hangs his hard hat
on the Lisfranc injury tree and he sits under it waiting for the proper time to
make his move. The Jets know what he is
doing and they purchased a ticket on this drama train when Holmes put on a green
I am not sure what is worse, a “me” type player or a team
who knows it has one and keeps the “me” and ditches the “we.”

Florham Park, NJ - The Jets are being quiet these days. Soft spoken Mike Goodson, who returned to the team facility today after being away for the past month "handling some personal stuff,' stayed in line with the approach, keeping it short and sweet with the media.Goodson prefers to forgo the blah, blah, blah with his teammates as well.

Will Geno Smith get the opening-game started for the New York Jets?
Multiple media reports are quoting sources saying that Mark Sanchez will not be ready to return to action in time for the Sept. 8 opening game against Tampa Bay, giving rookie Smith the nod in what has already been a tight competition for the starting slot.
He was held out of Thursday night's game against the...
With most of the starters getting the night off, including quarterbacks Geno Smith and Mark Sanchez, the Jets won the "Back-up Bowl," 27-20, on Thursday night against the Philadelphia Eagles at MetLife Stadium.A rough first series aside, quarterback Matt Simms did a lot to improve his roster stock against the Eagles' back-ups, going 33-44 with 285 yards, the most by...
New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez is likely to miss the season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on September 8. The fifth-year pro out of USC is suffering from a deep shoulder bruise picked in the fourth quarter of the preseason game versus in state rival New York Giants.
Ian Rapport reports that although the Jets still have Sanchez at day-to-day there is worry within...
Joe Namath is the only link the New York Jets have to any form of championship or Super Bowl conversation.
Namath and the Jets aren’t on the best of terms, and the New York legend doesn’t have a rhyme or reason for it. During an appearance on the Rich Eisen podcast, Namath said his “relationship with the Jets is clumsy and awkward right now.”
“Clumsy, awkward. Expressing...
A report says the Jets have signed Graham Harrell, who was recently cut by the Green Bay Packers in favor of Vince Young.
This letter was written to Rex Ryan from Valentina, a stripper from Rick’s Cabaret and the ‘dancer’ makes some valid points about the Jets QB situation. See the letter below and H/T to FoxSports for the scoop:
Dear Rex, Can you please give Geno Smith another chance? I know he messed up by throwing three INTs against the Giants, and yes, it was really bad when he stepped out...

McKnight just recently tweeted this out. We’re still waiting confirmation that the Packers are in fact signing him to a contract.
McKnight, 25, was released by the Jets earlier this week. It appears as though the Packers are looking for a replacement for DuJuan Harris who was lost for the season...
The New York Jets quarterback controversy took another turn as the team signed Graham Harrell. Harrell was released by the Packers after losing out on the backup job behind Aaron Rodgers. He was 23 for 42 with 169 yards and an interception in three preseason games for Green Bay.
With Mark Sanchez’s health in question and uncertainty around Geno Smith, the addition of Harrell makes...

With Sanchez hurt, Harrell may end up playing in the Jets preseason finale on Thursday...
Geno Smith stayed on the sideline. So did Mark Sanchez.
While the New York Jets' quarterback competition is far from settled, Matt Simms certainly showed he might deserve to stick around when the season starts.
Simms, competing for the No. 3 job, led four scoring drives, and Kahlil Bell ran for 80 yards and two touchdowns as the Jets topped the Philadelphia Eagles 27-20 on...
The New York Jets have agreed to terms with former Packers backup Graham Harrell as first reported by Fox Sports. Harrell spent 3 years as Aaron Rodgers’ backup before being pushed to the side for Vince Young this preseason.
It remains to be seen if the Jets actually have a plan for Harrell, well let’s be honest when do the Jets have a plan? Or if this is just a depth signing...
Last night Matt Falkenbury from DailyStache.net and the Jets Press Coverage Podcast with John Presser, stopped by to talk mostly New York Jets football and at the end of the show, Breaking Bad. We had technical difficulties for the first 20 seconds or so. So if you don’t hear anything at the beginning, don’t worry. Baggy Dizzle and Manny helped Earl co-pilot the show, along...
