David Harris is one of the leaders of the defense, and while he’s pretty even-keeled on Sundays when he’s out playing for the Jets — he’s not so sure how strong he’ll be emotionally soon when his wife gives birth to their first child (a daughter) – likely in just a few weeks.
The couple is expecting its first child two weeks from this past Friday, and Harris said he’s ready — as ready as you can be when you’re a first-time parent. He’s just not sure how he’ll react in the delivery room, when the moment finally arrives.
“I think I’ll be …” Harris said, trailing off. “We’re having a daddy’s little girl, so we’ll see. We’ll see.”
This is one time in Harris’ life when he’ll gladly let his emotions get the best of him, a rarity, at least in his day job. The nucleus of the Jets defense, Harris is respected by his teammates and coaches for his steady play, even demeanor and, as defensive coordinator Mike Pettine put it, being a “calming influence on that huddle.”

Sanchez and Holmes can’t seen to get on the same page, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN NY … but why is that?
One of the biggest mysteries of the Jets’ season is the lack of chemistry between QBMark Sanchez and WR Santonio Holmes. They’ve played 26 games together, including playoffs, and sometimes they look like they’re still in their first minicamp. Sanchez has completed...
You Probably know by now Darrelle Revis had a bad game last Sunday. He gave up a catch — eight of them, in fact, for 75 yards. A touchdown, too.
