FLORHAM PARK–Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson was fined $10,000 for his touchdown celebration on Sunday. Plaxico Burress’ response? “He can pay for it.” And that, was that.
For whatever reason, there are still communication issues, even 11 games into the season. The disconnect on third-and-two between Mark Sanchez and Santonio Holmes is just one example. Rex Ryan voiced confidence that the kinks will be worked out. He said the two are, “Definitely working through it…It’s things like that we’re trying like crazy to clean up.”
Burress gave a similar statement. “It all works together,” he said of the responsibilities that the receivers have to their quarterback. “Getting to the proper landmarks, be disciplined in our routes, Not cutting our routes two-to-three yards short.”
Mike De Vito was the only player held out of practice completely on Wednesday. Ryan has pretty much already ruled him out for Sunday.
LaDainian Tomlinson and Jeremy Kerley were back on the practice field and prac

OMG, that was the funniest thing I have ever seen. Where did Lebron think of that? To shoot himself in the leg like Plaxico Burress did that one time he accidentally shot himself in the leg? ******* Lebron, what a comedic genius.
Seriously though, Lebron is that loser kid in middle school that repeats everyone’s joke immediately after theyve been said trying to get a pity...
In the world of internet lore, a meme is something that becomes a part of the public consciousness when used over and over again.
Most recently, the UC Davis pepper spraying cop acheived meme notoriety by being Photoshopped into various historically-relevant, and famous works of art.
In the sports world, things are a little less highbrow.
Last Sunday, Buffalo Bills wide receiver...
IRVING -- Since Jack Del Rio was fired as head coach of the Jaguars on Tuesday, there has been speculation that Rob Ryan could be a head coaching candidate in Jacksonville.
There is no evidence stating there's interest from the Jaguars, but hiring Ryan wouldn't be a huge surprise.
"He's a Ryan, so he has the pedigree, his whole family's been coaching, everybody...
The Jets are 6-5 and face an uphill climb to make the playoffs, but Rex Ryan says, “I think the best is yet to come.”
But Moore's role won't change from consultant, Ryan said.
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan is reaping the benefits of having a go to guy under center. Yes, Mark Sanchez has his ups and downs, but Ryan made it clear the third-year player is firmly ensconced as the guy on the Jets roster. On a few occasions, Ryan used Mark Brunell as a motivator for Sanchez by splitting their reps in practice. The USC product got the message and has...
Plaxico Burress says Steve Johnson has apologized for TD celebration.
The New York Jets' offensive line will have its hands full this weekend at Washington.
It has been a rough season for the five guys usually recognized as one of the league's best units and a major strength of the team. Next up is a big-time test against the Redskins and their sack-happy defense.
After not allowing Mark Sanchez to be sacked last week against Buffalo, the...
Jim Leonhard left no secret that he wasn’t happy with the boobirds directed at Mark Sanchez before the Jets’ 28-24 win to the Bills on Sunday. The veteran safety, one of the most well-respected and fan-friendly players on Rex Ryan’s team, admitted on Tuesday that he took exception to the fans’ ...
A person familiar with the NFLs disciplinary decision has told The Associated Press that Buffalo Bills receiver Stevie Johnson has been fined $10,000 for his questionable touchdown celebration in a loss to the New York Jets last weekend. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the league has not made an announcement. Johnson declined to comment except to say he had...
Johnson mocked WR Plaxico Burress' self-shooting incident
The Redskins actually play a very important game this week. It's not the Giants, Eagles, or Cowboys who will line up across from them, but the New York Jets that come to town. The Redskins have not dominated too many NFL teams of late, but the Jets (as well as the Cardinals and Bears) are the exceptions to the rule. Since the NFL realigned in 2002, just three teams in the...
Jets tight end Dustin Keller joined NBC SportsTalk on Thursday night, and he addressed a variety of issues. For starters, Keller addressed with Russ Thaler the ongoing criticism of quarterback Mark Sanchez. “Any time something breaks down offensively, immediately all the pressure goes on Mark Sanchez, Brian Schottenheimer, our offensive coordinator, and that’s absolutely not…
You have to have a long memory to remember a time when it was a coach of the Giants, not the Jets, making headlines for their performance in a press conference.
It was Jim Fassel pushing all his chips into the middle of the table back in 2000 when he bet his own job on the team making it into the playoffs.
It worked out and the Giants won the NFC, but since then it has been Herman...
Defensive end Mike DeVito, one of the teams best run-stuffers, isnt expected to play Sunday at Washington because of a knee injury, coach Rex Ryan said Monday. "[It] looks like hes got a little bit of a knee, MCL thing," Ryan said. "I dont think Mike is going to play this week." The injury, which occurred in the third quarter of the Jets win over Buffalo...
