Florham Park, N.J. - The question most commonly asked by reporters this week has been, "What's the biggest difference between where this Jets team is now as opposed to where they were before the last game against the Patriots?" A simple question gets a simple answer, the play of the offensive line is easily the biggest difference. Of course that has a lot to do with the fact that Nick Mangold has got a few games under his belt since he returned from his high-ankle sprain."I think it (having Mangold playing) just gives the other guys a lot of confidence,...

Shonn Greene who suffered both a head and groin injury against the Bills said he’s fine and ready to go. He looked relaxed and said he’s totally comfortable with where things are at offensively, “Knowing we’re finally back to the ground and pound.”

Don’t ask Plaxico Burress about Eli Manning.
The wide receiver bristled when questioned about his former quarterback in the Jets locker room, twice telling a reporter that he wouldn’t comment on Manning’s recent stretch of great play.
“I’m not talking about any of that,” Burress said, ...
After strong performances against the Bills, Plaxico Burress, Santonio Holmes and Jeremy Kerley are poised to take advantage of New England’s secondary.
They have been so careful all week. For five days, coach Rex Ryan and his Jets have bobbed and wove and danced around the subject of the New England Patriots.
With the Jets playing the most important game of the year Sunday, Plaxico Burress sat out of practice today.

Burress has been dealing with a back issue that nearly kept him out of the game against the Bills last week. Jets coach Rex Ryan said Wednesday he thought Burress could play Sunday against the Patriots.
