The Jets will start rookie Brian Winters at left guard and bench Vlad Ducasse, a source Although Ducasse has had a few good games his inconsistencies are too erratic for him to be relied upon.

Florham Park, NY -- The Jets officially announced the signing of wide receiver David Nelson on Wednesday, releasing Ben Obomanu from the active roster.The Obomanu for Nelson swap comes after Obomabu had more penalties (three) than catches (one) in Sunday's blowout loss to the Tennessee Titans.Still, the Jets will be incredibly thin at wide receiver heading into Monday's showdown...

Geno Smith doing impressions of Mark Sanchez

Is it me or did Geno Smith do a great impression of Mark Sanchez? The New York Jets most recent game was a reminder of what happens when the defense can’t keep up their end of the bargain. At 2-1 this was a game to show if the Jets were for real or just lucky? Guess lady luck wasn’t a fan of the New York Jets. THE GOOD There is a silver lining for everything and while watching...

New York Jets Defensive Line Grade Sheet: Week 4

Through four weeks of the 2013 NFL season, it would appear that my job –grading the defensive line following each game– is probably the easiest of anyone here at TOJ. In layman’s terms….they’re pretty damn good. And I expect we’ll see a lot of positives from them each and every week. And while I’m ecstatic to get a chance to analyze the dominant performances from...

Jets will be without Santonio Holmes for a couple of weeks

New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes will miss multiple games because his hamstring injury is worse than initially thought, according to a league source. The Jets haven’t revealed a prognosis, but the fear is that he could miss up to a month.Stephen Hill (concussion) also is expected to sit out next Monday night against the Atlanta Falcons, meaning the […]

Tebow worth signing for his ‘aura,’ says Jets receiver

New Jets wide receiver David Nelson said he has not spoken to his college teammate Tim Tebow about life with the Jets since signing with the team Tuesday. Nelson was scheduled to work out with Tebow next weekend. He said Tebow who is currently a free agent called him a few weeks ago and asked him if he wanted to work out. Nelson played with Tebow at the University of Florida and...

Rex: No color codes for Smith

Red light. Green light. Forget it. A few hours after saying the New York Jets are considering using a wristband with plays designated by color -- red, yellow and green -- to help struggling Geno Smith, Rex Ryan decided against it. ''To be honest with you, I don't plan on doing that now,'' Ryan told ESPN NY 98.7 on Wednesday. The Jets, trying to help cut down...

Two of Jets top wideouts likely out

Rex Ryan was joking when he said the Jets might run the Wishbone Monday night in Atlanta against the Falcons with his team’s options at wide receiver so thin. The state of Gang Green’s receiving corps is no laughing matter however. In fact it’s scary. The Jets could be without two of their top three receivers a season-long issue a year ago that limited the passing attack...

Dee Milliner plans to work through troubles, just as he did at Alabama

A quarter of the way into the season first-round draft pick Dee Milliner is probably a little too familiar with watching the Jets from the sidelines or on television. Through the first four games Milliner has played in just over 43% of the Jets’ defensive snaps due to a benching by Rex Ryan and a hamstring injury that kept him out for Week 4. This wasn’t Gang Green’s master...

Geno Smith apologized to New York Jets defense

Through the first four games of the season, the New York Jets rank in the top-eight in the NFL in both passing and rushing defense. Despite that, the team is 2-2. New York gave up 38 points in a loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, but it was not because of poor defensive play. […]

Santonio Holmes: ”I Can’t Throw The Ball To Myself And Catch It”

You want to know what’s better than a diva wide receiver explaining why he didn’t have any catches? An injured wide receiver explaining why he only had one catch. Two weeks after Hakeem Nicks told the media he can’t throw the ball to himself, following a blowout loss to the Panthers, injured Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes just did the same thing. Holmes was asked about...

Santonio Holmes: ‘I Can’t Throw it to Myself’

It wouldn’t be the New York Jets if there weren’t some off the field distractions. For the most part, wide receiver Santonio Holmes is always good for a couple quotes when he meets with the media. His most recent comments are no different. Holmes was questioned for the first time since his dismal performance against the […]

David Nelson poised to make immediate impact

Injuries sustained by Santonio Holmes and Stephen Hill in this past Sunday’s game, may sideline the team’s top two receivers for Monday night in Atlanta. With both Holmes and Hill uncertain of return for this week’s matchup against the Falcons, the Jets’ front office signed third year receiver, David Nelson.

Santonio rips Jets: ‘I can’t throw it to myself’

Santonio Holmes’ hamstring is balky but his tongue was as sharp as always Thursday. Asked to explain a seeming lack of production Sunday with Geno Smith he paraphrased another star receiver — the Giants’ Hakeem Nicks. “I played 49 plays and all I know is that I had one catch. That’s all I can attest for’’ said Holmes who added what could be viewed as a thinly veiled...
