Turn On The Jets:
New York Jets
Another week, another dominant performance from the Jets defensive line. The Jets took on an Atlanta offensive line that has had some injuries and serious struggles this season. On Monday night, on a prime time stage, the big men up front exposed that weakness, limiting quarterback Matt Ryan’s time in the pocket, along with the Falcon’s run game as a whole.
I think most expect this defensive line to be ‘honor students’ this season when it comes to the Grade Sheet and through five weeks, there’s no reason to think otherwise. This is a very tough defensive group that has proven capable of stopping the run, and getting to the quarterback. Kudos to Rex Ryan and Defensive Line Coach, Karl Dunbar, who are clearly getting the most out of their guys this season.
So lets get to the grades:
Muhammed Wilkerson: 68 plays (89%)
7 Total Tackles (5 Solo Tackles)
1 Forced Fumble
You really can’t ask for a better game from a defensive lineman than what we saw from Wilkerson on Monday night....

Something has been a little off sense this season started. Sure, there has been an extra helping of upsets and strange results, but that isn’t quite it either. The most noticeable difference is actually what’s missing, not what’s new. The New York Jets now sit with a 3-2 record after beating the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night. With the win, the Jets stay just a game back...
Rex Ryan insists he and the New York Jets refuse to put much stock into what their many critics and detractors say about them.
The coach also acknowledges, however, that all the negative talk outside their facility has helped sparked them to a surprising 3-2 start following a 30-28 victory at Atlanta led by a turnover-free Geno Smith on Monday night. Ryan says Tuesday in a conference...
I don’t know if there was any confusion on the topic of whether or not Mark Sanchez was alive or not but Rex Ryan cleared it up. “Mark Sanchez is not dead,” the Jets’ head coach said to Seth Walder of the New York Daily News. Thanks a lot Rex. The response came as a typical Rex Ryan question dodge when asked about Sanchez’s future with the Jets.
“We’re acting like...
Rex Ryan and Mark Sanchez have been through a lot together and the head coach has mostly talked about his quarterback in the present tense. On Wednesday, Ryan found himself awkwardly discussing the injured Sanchez's time with the Jets in past tense but made it clear that Sanchez's quarterbacking career isn't over — wherever it is. “We’re acting like he’s...

Whenever the Patriots are around, there always seems to be a Ryan that follows. Whether it is the Jets or Saint's, the tempo always is picked up when the teams come together. One of the Ryan's, the coach of the New York Jets Rex Ryan, usually is no problem for the Patriots offense and defense. But the Saint'...
After a stunning week five win in Atlanta, the Jets are beginning to turn heads in the NFL. A big reason for their surprising success has been the superb play from Rex Ryan’s defense. Team’s are struggling to develop any type of ground game against the Jets, which is also limiting their aerial attack (no development of play action). The Jets linebackers were finally tested against...
Santonio Holmes made roughly the same amount of noise in his press conference Thursday as he likely will on the field on Sunday. Rex Ryan suggested Thursday that Holmes will probably miss Sunday’s matchup against the Steelers while the wide receiver was evasive with the media a week after saying “I can’t throw it to myself and catch it otherwise I would.”
“The fact he...
Florham Park - Something seemed weird when Rex Ryan was asked to address why tight end Kellen Winslow hasn't been at practice. I'll admit, I came up with some dramatic scenarios. In reality, it's slightly juicy. The NFL announced today that Winslow is suspended for four games for violating the league policy on performance enhancing drugs. This means Winslow won't...
Matt Ryan lost back-to-back home games for the first time in his career. (Jason Braverman)
For the first time since the tumultuous 2007 season, the Atlanta Falcons have lost three straight games.
Monday night’s 30-28 loss to the New York Jets was the Falcons’ second consecutive loss at home. It was the first time in Matt Ryan’s career he’s lost back-to-back home games.
The New York Jets dodged another bullet with their 30-28 win against the Atlanta Falcons. It was a stunning win for the club that was supposed to be terrible this year. Going away and playing in a hostile Atlanta stadium isn’t a walk in the park. But as we see the Falcons fold right in front of our eyes some things aren’t surprising.Head coach Rex Ryan has his players believing...
New York Jets tight end Kellen Winslow has been suspended without pay for four games by the NFL for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. Winslow will miss games against Pittsburgh, New England, Cincinnati and New Orleans. He’ll be eligible to return to the Jets on Monday, Nov. 4, the day after the Jets
It is good to know Sanchez is still with the living.
“We’re acting like he’s dead. Mark Sanchez is not dead,” head coach Rex Ryan said Wednesday. “Sanchez is going to be 100% healthy, guys. It’s not like his career’s over.”
But when asked if Sanchez would be back with the Jets, Ryan dodged.
“I don’t want to get into that. I think he’s going to come back 100...
Fantasy Football can be statistically misleading. Some players get a lot of pass attempts, rushes, or targets despite their individual performance or their team's standing.These situations arise when their team lacks depth at their position (no competition) or the team's strategy directly or indirectly benefits that player.Here are some statiscial anomolies so far in 2013...
This might be the last EJ Manuel comparison for quite some time due to his untimely injury against the Browns. Hopefully he returns soon (but not so soon that he rushes his recovery) and maybe the Bills can win some games in the meantime.
I’m not ashamed to admit that I almost cried when Manuel clutched his knee last Thursday on the sideline. My wife locked herself in our bedroom...
