New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan, usually boisterous as can be whenever it's time to take on the New England Patriots, isn't really in the mood for trash talk, seeing that his team is not the contender he thought them to be. Fresh off of convincingly beating the St. Louis Rams, they're not getting ahead of themselves, and rightly so. St. Louis just isn't a good team. “We’re behind where we have to be and we can only focus on ourselves,” Ryan told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.

Sanchez Breakdown: One at a Time

Stat line: 15/20, 178 yards, 1 TD, 0 INT; 75% completion pct., 118.3 QB Rating Season Stats: 168/314, 2,038 yards, 11 TD, 9 INT; 53.5 completion pct., 73.4 QB Rating We’ve gotten to a point – and maybe rightfully so – where Mark Sanchez can do no right in the eyes of some Jets fans.

Rex Ryan Sidesteps Smack Talk, Says He’s ‘Not Worried About Tweaking New England’

The Jets and Patriots play two football games a year. They also play another game, where Jets coach Rex Ryan says something stupid and the Patriots shove it back in his face. But not this time, apparently. As the Jets and Patriots deal with a short turnaround before their Thanksgiving evening matchup, Ryan has decided to zip the lip and just make sure his 4-6 Jets come out to play...

Jets quickly turn focus to Pats after win vs. Rams

Rex Ryan has no message for Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots this week. Nope, no fightin' words this time around. After all, the way the usually brash coach sees it, the New York Jets (4-6) need to focus on themselves and ''punch our way out'' of the hole they got into with three straight losses before a 27-13 win Sunday at St. Louis. The victory...

No Huddle – Crucial Win In St. Louis Edition

4-6 is not the type of record to go celebrating in the Meatpacking District over. The way New York athletes often do after big victories. Ending a three game skid and moving beyond a “Terrible Tim” storm that threatened to derail focus on the Rams is. The Jets win over St Louis has seemingly calmed the Florham Park madness down for the time being but more importantly, has moved...

3's not a crowd but 'ideal' for Jets running backs

Rex Ryan says it's an ''ideal scenario'' for the New York Jets to have all three of their running backs - Shonn Greene, Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight - in the mix for playing time the rest of this season. It has been rare for all three to be healthy and effective in the same game, as they were in the Jets' 27-13 win over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday. Ryan...

Jets snap three-game losing streak

For at least one day, the New York Jets halted the downward spiral. Mark Sanchez was solid for the first time in several weeks, the unquestioned No. 1 quarterback presiding over a turnover-free offense in a 27-13 victory over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday. The beleaguered Sanchez was an efficient 15 of 20 passing for 178 yards and a touchdown, while Tim Tebow was merely a footnote...

New York Jets at St. Louis Rams: Five Things We Learned

The New York Jets may have saved their season. For now. And may have saved their head coach his job also. For now. In coming to St. Louis and slapping the Rams around the Edward Jones Dome 27-13, the Jets have given themselves a reason to celebrate and keep the New York media off their backs. For now.Here are five things we learned from the game on Sunday:1. New York quarterback...

Stephen Hill has been struggling but the Jets will keep throwing him the ball

Coach Rex Ryan said the Jets will “keep throwing” to struggling rookie WR Stephen Hill. Hill went without a catch again in Week 11, the fourth time that has happened this year. He also had another mind-numbing drop. Ryan tried to blame Hill’s illness for the woes. “Sometimes when you have young players, rookie players, and they miss the whole week of practice…you kind of...

MORNING AFTER REPORT: Running the Show

JETS OFFENSE KICKS IT INTO HIGH GEAR AS DEFENSE STIFLES SCHOTTY'S RAMS OFFENSE. The Jets managed to put aside the gigantic off-the-field distraction of yet another anonymous player bashing teammates for a convincing win in St. Louis Sunday. Further more, they left their three-game losing streak in the review; riding a trio of running backs and a smothering defense on their difficult...

Jets beat Rams 27-13, as they snap their four game losing streak

The New York Jets (4-6) beat the St. Louis Rams (3-6-1) 27-13, today at the Edward Jones Dome from St. Louis, MO. Good news Jets fans! Gang Green has finally won a football game as Mark Sanchez can shut up critics for at least the couple of days. Mark Sanchez had an very good manageable game moving his offense downfield and finally OC Tony Sparano drew a good gameplan for once...

Rex Ryan Defends Bill Belichick’s Decision to Leave Rob Gronkowski In on Extra Point, Calls Criticism ‘Ridiculous’

Rex Ryan and Bill Belichick are supposed to be archenemies. They’re not supposed to exchange Christmas cards, compliment one another on their interesting clothing choices or even swap pleasantries, at least as far as Patriots and/or Jets fans are concerned. But on Tuesday, Ryan broke that code. The Jets head coach actually backed up Belichick on his decision to play Rob Gronkowski...

New York Jets Week 12 – Early Thoughts On Jets/Pats

The New York Jets season received a shot of life with a 27-13 win over the St. Louis Rams. However, it will take an upset over the New England Patriots this Thursday night to truly make them relevant in the AFC playoff picture again. Here is a collection of early thoughts - 1. The big injury news this week is that Patriots tight end Rob Grokowski will not play because of a broken...

No Gronk vs. Jets, but Pats still go as Brady goes

There were no sighs of relief, no jumps for joy when the New York Jets found out they wouldn't have to worry about Rob Gronkowski this week. Sure, the New England Patriots lost perhaps the league's top playmaking tight end for a few weeks with a broken forearm. But Rex Ryan's team knew better than to celebrate. ''I don't know,'' Ryan said, shaking...

Week 11 AFC East game picks: Jets at Rams

Lead writer Nick St. Denis and AFC East Daily contributors Dan Begnoche and Sean Donovan pick the New York Jets' inter-conference contest with the St. Louis Rams. Nick's take: When Jets coach Rex Ryan and Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer shared the field during Schotty's time with the Jets, Rex's defense ran the show. I think that holds true when the...
