PHOTO COURTESY: NEWORLEANSSAINTS.COM So it’s safe to say that the New York Jets had a tough one last week.  We knew it was going to be hard for them to win, but we had no idea it would be that bad.  After suffering a 49-9 loss at the hands of the Cincinnati Bengals, it doesn’t get any easier for Gang Green in week nine when they host the New Orleans Saints. This week’s matchup will be even harder for the Jets with the Saints possessing one of the league’s most potent offenses and a much improved defense led by Rob Ryan, Jets Head Coach Rex Ryan’s brother.  As always, we will be breaking down the game by deciding the keys to the game, the game changers and our final predictions.  Hopefully, the Jets continue their “win-loss” pattern that has led to their 4-4 record.  Unfortunately, we are not really thinking they can do it this week.

Rex, Rob Ryan Rock Identical Mustaches, Mullets in Graduation Picture From 1986 (Photo)

Both members of the Ryan family will be on the field at MetLife Stadium this weekend when Rex‘s Jets welcome Rob‘s NFC South-leading Saints on Sunday. The two twin brothers are easily distinguishable now — Rob sports long hair and a goatee while Rex prefers a more clean-cut look — but that wasn’t always the case, as proven by a nearly 20-year-old photo that made its way...

Rob Ryan keeping jokes minimal during Jets week

Rob Ryan is portraying himself as the more serious brother this week. Albeit with a self-serving jab mixed in. The Saints' defensive coordinator greeted reporters Friday by holding up the plain white back side of a play chart. The message was that he wasn't going to try to one-up his brother - Jets head coach Rex Ryan - in his game-week media session because he was more...

Jekyll-and-Hyde Jets could be playoff contenders

Here's a stunner: The New York Jets would be in the playoffs if the regular season ended today. As unlikely as that seemed a few months ago, or even just a few days ago, Rex Ryan's bunch has made a statement as it heads into the bye-week break that the Jets don't plan on going away anytime soon. In the up-and-down world that is the Jets' season, opinions continue...

Rex Ryan not buying Chris Ivory's 'just another game' facade

Just as he has all week, Chris Ivory said Sunday evening that he approached the New York Jets' Week 9 bout with his former team, the New Orleans Saints, "like just another game." If Ivory truly was indifferent Sunday, it didn't look like it. The bruising Gang Green tailback ran with attitude and conviction on his way to an 18-carry, 139-yard showing, capping it...

Jets Should Be Taken Seriously as Playoff Contenders, as Rex Ryan Has Them Winning With Old School Style

Back in the middle of August, the Jets looked like they were going to be the laughing stock of the NFL this season. A circus-like end to 2012 and some apparent unrest in the locker room fueled that idea, and a major changeover in both the front office and on the roster during the offseason only exacerbated it. Their best defensive player, Darrelle Revis, was gone. Their best offensive...

Week 9 picks: Saints at Jets

Publisher Nick St. Denis, associate editor Dan Begnoche and senior contributor Sean Donovan pick the cross-conference matchup between the New York Jets and New Orleans Saints.Nick's take:Jets coach Rex Ryan's brother, Rob, has turned the NFL's historically-bad defense of last year into one of the league's top units in 2013. The Saints are disciplined, creatively aggressive...

Jets notch big win over Saints

In what was arguably their best all-around performance of 2013, the New York Jets continued their surprising run this season and upset the visiting New Orleans Saints 26-20 on Sunday afternoon, sending Drew Brees and company home empty-handed while improving to 5-4 on the year. Keeping pace with the third-place Miami Dolphins (4-4) who defeated the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday...

Should the Dolphins Take Notes from the Jets?

Coming into the season the Jets were viewed as a joke, projected to win 4, maybe 5 games. At the half way point they are 4-4 because their coaching staff, led by Rex Ryan has put them in the best situation to win.Rookie Geno Smith hasn't had much success so far this season, but he hasn't had to. The Jets have leaned on their top 10 rushing attack and a top 15 defense, letting...

Saints Nation: How Do Offenses Gameplan Against Saints' Defense?

I have read on this blog that the 2012 defense sucked because there was not the ONE guy to gameplan for (paraphrased from an NFL player). The one threat that you have to account for. The one you always have to watch as an offense to know where they are and what they will do before the snap. Recognize his style and look at his tells. Play poker and call his bluff. Now... the Saints...

The Worst of Week Nine Vol.VII

Ryan Boys or Boys BRAH...WHO YA GOT?  I'm leaning Ryans. Usually, I leave the college football heavy lifting to our ******* Tuesday writer but he never once mentioned the hilarious Grambling story so I doubt that he will discuss Florida Atlantic.  So I will.  As you all probably know by now, FAU coach Carl Pelini (Bo's bro) and DC Pete Rekstis (formerly of Miami U!) were...

Time for Jets to show they’re for real

If the Jets are going to break out of their pattern of maddening mediocrity, now would be a good time — beginning Sunday against the high-powered Saints at MetLife Stadium. If the Jets are going to make anyone believe in them, it starts with the Saints. “The red light has to come on now,” veteran guard Willie Colon told The Post Friday. “We have to take care of our own business...

New York Jets Mid-Season Perspective Piece

The New York Jets are 5-4 heading into the Bye. Let that sink in. The Jets were ranked 32/32 heading into Week One, lest we forget. Rex Ryan was a lame duck. NFL pundits lamented the exodus of Dustin Keller, Brandon Moore, LaRon Landry, Shonn Greene, Mike Devito, Sione Pouha, Bart Scott, and Calvin Pace. How could rookie capologist John Idzik, he of little talent evaluating acumen...

Jets can’t let Drew Brees have his way

Eight games into the season, the Jets remain impossible to figure out. Two weeks ago they beat the Patriots. Last week, they got dismantled by the Bengals. At 4-4, they are the definition of mediocrity. Sunday, they get another tough test with the 6-1 Saints coming to MetLife Stadium. Jets coach Rex Ryan has said all season he believes the Jets will be a good team, but when? The...
