The Jets quarterback’s shoulder injury is significant enough he is expected to miss the first two weeks of the regular season and may be out longer according to a source. Sanchez injured his right shoulder on Aug. 24 in a preseason game against the Giants. The Jets have said he is “day-to...

Jets Weighing The Idea of Placing QB Mark Sanchez On IR?

Kevin Manahan of USA Today reports that a source close to Jets QB Mark Sanchez has informed him that the quarterback ”believes the organization wants to see him placed on (injured reserve) and be done with him.” Manahan’s source added that Sanchez believes the Jets think “it makes it cleaner and easier” that way.” Sanchez is reportedly concerned that the “organization...

Jets owner optimistic about season, supports Ryan

Jets owner Woody Johnson says ''I'm always optimistic'' as his team opens play after a turbulent offseason.

Mark Sanchez believes the Jets want to put him on IR

It should be crystal clear by now that the Jets want the Mark Sanchez era to be over. The problem with that is that the Geno Smith era, in the short term at least, doesn’t look all that promising.

New York Jets vs. Tampa Bay Bucs – Under The Radar Edition

The preseason is finally over and as always the mood is tense in New York Jets land. The media is continuously attacking Rex Ryan (for going to his son’s college football game) and every “analyst” has the Jets winning 2 games. Shocking? Not in the slightest bit. With all of this smoke covering up what really matters (the Jets are a football team, not a soap opera) there is...

New York Jets name Geno Smith starter for Week 1

Rex Ryan has named Geno Smith the starting quarterback for week one when the New York Jets battle the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Throwback Thursday: Jets vs. Buccaneers, October 9, 2005

Throwback Thursday is a feature at Turn On The Jets, where we take a stroll down Jets Memory Lane and reminisce about past great Jets games against the upcoming week’s opponent. (Word to be taken with an enormous grain of salt: “great”) By the time I debuted this feature late last season, the Jets were out of any serious playoff contention. They were 4-7, about to host another...

Revis on Jets: I've moved on

When the New York Jets traded top cornerback and fan favorite Darrelle Revis to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this offseason they opened themselves up to plenty of scrutiny. On Sunday when Revis returns to MetLife Stadium to face the Jets it could provide some clarity into the question of whether the Jets made a mistake in trading one of the league's premier defenders.
