NFL Injury Report:
New York Jets wide receiver, Santonio Holmes, should be in
the starting line-up come Sunday afternoon, reports Josh
Alper of NBCSports.
The Jets believe Holmes, who is recovering from a Lisfranc
injury, is ready to go, though his game reps will be limited. However, Holmes continues
to downplay his healthy progress telling reporters, “I still don’t know. Still haven’t gotten any word from the
doctors yet on whether I should be playing or not, so I’m just going to keep
playing it by ear.”
I still do not understand the dynamics of this troublesome
marriage. The Jets put out in the media
that they expect Holmes to play. Yet
Holmes tells the NFL world he still does not know.
I realize that Holmes has spent more time in the preseason
yapping his media mouth than getting game reps; however, the team and player should
at least be in the same book if not on the same page when they discuss Holmes’ status.
Holmes playing is not a game-time decision; it is a morning decision. Holmes is going to wake up Sunday morning and
go through his game day routine or hit the snooze button. It all depends on how the “me” is doing Sunday morning and
only coach Holmes knows that.

With the glass half full, the New York Jets are led by a competent Head Coach who is nearly guaranteed to produce one of the league’s better defenses. There is head turning talent on the defensive line, supported by one of the league’s top corners. Offensively, there is nowhere to go but up from last season, when the team managed 6 wins despite horrifically incompetent work from...
After it topped the “Not Top 10″ for 40 straight weeks, ESPN will retire Mark Sanchez’ infamous “buttfumble.” Que the jokes about ESPN not covering something about the Jets. Here is their quote:

Sanchez is reportedly concerned that the “organization...
Jets owner Woody Johnson says ''I'm always optimistic'' as his team opens play after a turbulent offseason.
Johnson said Wednesday that he didn't have an issue with coach Rex Ryan using quarterback Mark Sanchez behind a backup offensive line in the fourth quarter of a preseason game. Then the presumptive starter, Sanchez hurt his throwing shoulder on a hard...
Bilal Powell may be the Jets starter at running back Sunday but Gang Green’s carries will be split between him and Chris Ivory. Though running backs coach Anthony Lynn couldn’t be sure exactly how the breakdown would look he said he’s keeping in mind that the team plays against the Patriots just four days later.
“It depends. It just depends. I’m going to try to get them...
It should be crystal clear by now that the Jets want the Mark Sanchez era to be over. The problem with that is that the Geno Smith era, in the short term at least, doesn’t look all that promising. And there’s no way that Jets fans will stand for Geno Smith throwing interception after interception while the veteran quarterback that beat him out in training camp stands on the sideline...
Rex Ryan has named Geno Smith the starting quarterback for week one when the New York Jets battle the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
It seems that Smith didn’t win the job, but rather was given the job because of the injury to Mark Sanchez. Sanchez injured his shoulder against the New York Giants in the Jets third preseason game when Ryan elected to play Sanchez with the backups. Smith...

Nerves have never been a problem for Dee Milliner.
The confident New York Jets rookie cornerback is coming off winning consecutive national championships at Alabama, so the fact he'll step on an NFL field in a real game for the first time Sunday is no big deal.
No butterflies. No cold sweats. No kidding?
''I don't get nervous before a game,'' Milliner said...
Throwback Thursday is a feature at Turn On The Jets, where we take a stroll down Jets Memory Lane and reminisce about past great Jets games against the upcoming week’s opponent. (Word to be taken with an enormous grain of salt: “great”)
By the time I debuted this feature late last season, the Jets were out of any serious playoff contention. They were 4-7, about to host another...
When the New York Jets traded top cornerback and fan favorite Darrelle Revis to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this offseason they opened themselves up to plenty of scrutiny.
On Sunday when Revis returns to MetLife Stadium to face the Jets it could provide some clarity into the question of whether the Jets made a mistake in trading one of the league's premier defenders.
With only one day left until the beginning of the NFL season, teams are putting the finishing touches on their starting lineups. EJ Manuel of the Buffalo Bills and Geno Smith of the New York Jets were both named starting quarterbacks. Manuel and Smith were the first two quarterbacks taken in the 2013 NFL Draft. The both of them were put in very similar situations. They both had...
