FLORHAM PARK–Yet another comeback win. Everyone should be getting used to those by now. And, it builds character.
OK, I made that last part up.
The biggest news to come out of yesterday’s game is that Rex Ryan said today the Jim Leonhard will now be the team’s primary punt returner. He praised Jeremy Kerley, and talked about how hard he’s worked. “He catches 200 passes out of the jugs machine every day,” Ryan said. “And I’m not sure how many punts he catches.”
However, at this point, Ryan is “more comfortable” having Leonhard return especially given the potential for bad weather this time of year and he repeated what he’s always said, that he thinks Leonhard could catch a punt “in a hurricane.”
Joe McKnight had an MRI and Ryan said he thinks he has a hyper-extended elbow. Right now McKnight’s status for this week is unclear. “Obviously, if you’re a running back you’ve got be able to grip the football and run with it,” Ryan said. If McKnight can’t go, it would seem like

No sacks…great o-line play…Aaron Mayhem getting to Rex Grossman…sound like a victory to me. Hear Rex’s take in the link.

I think with Joe (McKnight), I’m not sure what the MRI showed, I know he had one and was on his way back. Again, it sounded like a hyper-extended elbow. We’ll see how it is. Obviously, if you’re a running back, you have to be able to grip the football and protect it. So that’s something. Jason Taylor played with a hyper-extended elbow...
LANDOVER, Md. — The Redskins had the ball with just less than five minutes to play yesterday, down four points thanks to Santonio Holmes’ heroics, but still with plenty of time to re-take the lead from the Jets. “I told [Aaron Maybin] fourth-quarter sacks win games. He says, ‘I know it...
The Wildcat formation made a surprise return to the Jets' gameplan on Sunday against the Redskins, a playbook wrinkle coach Rex Ryan took credit for on Tuesday.
Even though the win was nice and kept the team alive, Rex not happy in the closing moments of the game when Shonn Greene’s final score exposed players unnecessarily to injuries.
“That was something that I was a little bit upset with because for the simple fact that we had to go back and play defense and cover a kick,” Ryan said. “Sometimes I’ve seen guys get injured in...

Another week of frustrating football against a bad team but another much-needed win. Like I said it wasn’t pretty but the Jets 34-19 against the win was their second in a row and put them in a four-way tie for the sixth and final wild card spot. Given the Jets relatively weak schedule down the stretch, there is no reason to suggest they can’t keep this momentum going but...
Picture this scenario for the New York Jets: at about 7 PM this Sunday night, they sit at 8-5 and in complete control of their own playoff destiny. If they win out, they will be in. No scoreboard watching. No worrying about another team giving them help.
It isn’t that far fetched.
The New York Jets host the Kansas City Chiefs at 1 PM, in a game that they should win. Considering...
IT ISN’T EASY being Rex Ryan, a natural innovator who has tried to do things differently now for three seasons. That’s the catch, of course. After three years, what’s new to do?
With the 2011 season on the line in Washington, Rex Ryan unveiled off all things, the Wildcat formation. Doing so with speedster Jeremy Kerley and Shonn Greene at the helm. The results were a success at times, other times not so much. Looking deeper into the message this surprising ploy may have sent, the bigger question is whether or not this wrinkle was a game day stunt or permanent...

We’ve seen a crotch kick, an arm stomp, late hits, helmet to helmet launches, and even Jets Coach Rex Ryan cursing at spectators. Flags are flying on NFL fields from coast to coast this year for questionable hits, and the old highlight reel collisions are no longer legal. Players are still getting hurt, and many are playing hurt. From Cowboy QB Tony Romo taking...
