BY NICK ST. DENISAntonio Cromartie hasn't been the same player this year.Cromartie's stellar play last year in the absence of fellow cornerback Darrelle Revis made Revis somewhat dispensable, as the Jets still boasted the league's second-best pass defense without him.Since then, Cromartie has been subpar. He's also been dinged up, but he won't admit his hip and knee ailments have had anything to do in his drop in play.“I don’t want to say so because if I’m out on the football field, my teammates expect to get my best from me and I expect to give my best,” Cromartie said this week, via NewYorkJets.com, “so I’m never going to involve injuries or make an excuse for my play at all.”Cro, according to himself, has given up three passes of 50 yards or more. Cromartie thinks just one of those in an entire season is unacceptable, so he's going back to the drawing board. "It's been a tough year for me," Cromartie said. ". .  I feel like I have to s...

New York Jets – The Coples Conundrum

There have been a lot of questions and concerns surrounding New York Jets OLB/DE Quinton Coples this season, as expectations for a breakout second year have been tempered following a slow start for the former first round pick out of UNC. The last time we saw the “real” Quinton Coples, he was manhandling Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert in the preseason, forcing a fumble as...

Geno Smith celebrates touchdown run with failed spike (GIF)

New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith had an 8-yard touchdown run in the third quarter of Sunday's win over New England, but he probably wishes he could have a do-over on his spike attempt as he celebrated the score. In case you couldn't see it, here's a close-up of Smith losing his grip on the ball as he raises it up to spike it on the ground: Sometimes...

Jets make history with win over Patriots

It may be hard to believe, but the Jets' upset win over the Patriots on Sunday was one for the record books. In the 30-27 overtime victory, Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith led his fourth-game winning drive of the season -- an NFL first. https://twitter.com/RLiuNFL/status/392049597301813249 Smith recorded 265 total yards, two touchdowns (one rushing), and an interception...

Dee Milliner to return this week, Santonio Holmes will not

Jet’s rookie CB Dee Milliner will be back for the Jets this weekend after missing 3 games with a hamstring injury. It has not been the type of season the Jets were hoping for out of Miller, who they drafted essentially to replace Darrelle Revis. WR Santonio Holmes will miss this weekends matchup with his own hamstring injury. Cornerback Dee Milliner will be in the lineup for the...

Initial Reaction – Finally! New York Jets Get Overdue Win Against Pats

The New York Jets had a classic first half against the New England Patriots. Offensively, they turned the football over which directly led to Patriots points. Defensively, they looked unprepared for the hurry up offense. Penalties. Poor special teams. 21-10 New England at the half. It felt like the Jets were on their way to yet another frustrating loss to New England, along with...

Jets Fan Punches Woman in the Face After Pats Game (Video)

The Jets won, so I don’t understand why this guy is trying to start a brawl and punching girls in the face? Granted the ladies (I use that term loosely) appear to be throwing some blows as well. They all just look like a bunch of drunken idiots. H/T Deadspin

Turn On The Jets 12 Pack, Week 7 Edition

You’ll have to excuse my skepticism about the New York Jets chances this Sunday. No Vince Wilfork. No Jerod Mayo. No Aqib Talib. No Danny Amendola. No Shane Vereen. And on and on. I’ve seen this movie before. 2008? No Brady…Jets still lost at home. Back in week 2? Pats were all sorts of banged up…Jets still lost. I know we had the good times (and the bad times) in 2009 and...

Jets upend Patriots in OT after unusual penalty gives Nick Folk a second chance

The Jets snapped their five-game losing streak to New England on Sunday in most unusual fashion. Nick Folk kicked a 42-yard field goal with 5:07 remaining in overtime to give the Jets a 30-27 victory. Folk initially missed a 56-yard field goal – his first miss of the season – but was bailed out when defensive tackle Chris Jones was penalized 15 yards for pushing one of his teammates...

Jets rookie says Tom Brady gets special treatment from NFL

Sheldon Richardson is a Jets rookie. Most people, much less NFL fans, have never heard of him, but he has decided to assume the mantle of the New York player running his mouth before Sunday’s game against the Patriots. Richardson’s attack method is not a new one — he’s going after quarterback Tom Brady, and he’s saying the Patriots get special treatment from the league...

Jets will be without Santonio Holmes vs. Patriots

Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes and newcomer Greg Salas have been ruled out for Sunday’s AFC East showdown with the Patriots at MetLife Stadium. But the Jets are getting corners Dee Milliner and Kyle Wilson back just in time to face New England — presumably with tight end Rob Gronkowski. “I still haven’t introduced myself to [Salas] yet. I guess he’s on the team’’...

Jets edge Patriots in OT

Nick Folk missed. And then, he didn't. After a penalty on New England gave the New York Jets kicker another chance, Folk booted a 42-yard field goal with 5:07 left in overtime for a 30-27 victory over the Patriots on Sunday. Folk was wide left on a 56-yarder, but the miss was negated when New England's Chris Jones was called for unsportsmanlike conduct for pushing a teammate...

Ref explains penalty vs. Patriots

Referee Jerome Boger explained in a pool report the penalty committed by Patriots defensive tackle Chris Jones that negated a missed Jets field goal in overtime. Nick Folk soon made a 42-yarder to win the game 30-27 Sunday. Pool reporter Mike Reiss asked Boger: ''Please explain the penalty that was called on No. 94 (Jones) on the field goal.'' Boger: ''The...

Happy New Tuck Rule Day

The Patriots got a taste of their own medicine by being the victim of some obscure ******** rule that cost them the game against the Jets. In overtime, the Jets were driving then once they got to the very absolute edge of field goal range got hyperconservative and decided to settle for a 56-yard field goal attempt by Nick Folk. That attempt was laughably off course, but then New...

New York Jets vs. New England Patriots – Halftime Report

The New England Patriots have brought a healthy Rob Gronkowski and a banged up defense to Metlife Stadium this week to face the Jets. Fortunately for the Patriots, their rock solid offensive performance is hiding a defense filled with back up players. On the other end, Geno Smith and the Jets have played well enough to hang around besides a brutal pick six in the first quarter. Let’s...
