Turn On The Jets:
New York Jets
New York Giants
Among the phrases I most frequently utter during a New York Jets game, “We really need a sack right here. When is the last time we got a sack?” is high up on the list. It isn’t just the 2012 version of the Jets who are awful at getting after the quarterback, it has been a recurring trend on the Jets over nearly the past decade. Did you know the last Jets player to register double digit sacks in a season was John Abraham in 2005 with 10.5? The last time the Jets had a double digit sack guy, Brooks Bollinger was throwing passes to Doug Jolley! Since then here are their sack leaders in each respective season -
2006 – Bryan Thomas – 8.5 sacks
2007 – David Harris – 5 sacks
2008 – Calvin Pace – 7 sacks
2009 – Calvin Pace – 8 sacks
2010 – Bryan Thomas – 6 sacks
2011 – Aaron Maybin – 6 sacks
2012 – Bryan Thomas – 2.5 sacks
Wow, that is a depressing list. It is even more depressing when you share the city with the New York Giants and Jason Pierre-Paul and Osi Umenyiora are having 4-

JETS HEAD COACH 'STUNNED' BY DISMAL PASS RUSH PERFORMANCE BY DEFENSE. FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Rex Ryan was confident in training camp that he was the best defensive coordinator in the game. Not only that, but he beat his chest while defiantly announcing his 2012 defensive unit as the 'best group he's coached' since becoming a head coach.After the New England Patriots...
Rex Ryan expected this to be perhaps the best defense he has had since becoming coach of the New York Jets four years ago.
Instead, it has been a major disappointment and hardly the big, bad bunch the coach sold it as.
Although New York ranks 19th in overall defense, Ryan still won't concede that the Jets will finish worse than fifth. He realizes, though, that his group has...
The flash in the NFL pan that’s been the Rex Ryan-era New York Jets was finally doused Thanksgiving night thanks to the New England Patriots. Losing to the dominant division foe from up north is one thing, but losing like the way the J-E-T-S Jets-Jets-Jets did is flat-out embarrassing. The fallout has been spectacular. Fan number one Fireman Ed has resigned, the boos have been...
A day after Bart Scott called out heckling fans, New York Jets coach Rex Ryan told the linebacker to remember to ''appreciate'' them and that they ''deserve better'' than how the team has played.
Scott says Thursday that he understands that fans pay ''good money'' to come to NFL games, and can say what they want because it's &...
While none of the NFL coaches who have been on the hot seat since early October have been fired yet, the day is likely coming soon.
Look for Week 13 NFL specials at Bovada on the futures of a few of those coaches on the chopping block.
Among the coaches who will likely see their tenures end on “Black Monday,” the day after the regular season ends, there is no bigger name than...
The New York Jets host the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday in a game where both teams are surprised about where they stand at this point in the season."We feel we're a better football team than our record indicates, and I'm sure they do as well," said Rex Ryan on Wednesday. "They should feel that way. Both teams are hungry for a win, and I think there probably...
(Because aren’t you tired of pictures of Rex Ryan or Mark Sanchez at the top of these articles?)
Welcome to the Turn On The Jets mailbag, where we will go through your questions on the New York Jets among other things. We are going to try to make this a somewhat regular thing. Questions can be sent to JoeC@TurnOnTheJets.com, on Twitter or Facebook. Let’s get into it -
Rex Ryan says the New York Jets are ''looking into'' Tim Tebow's availability and he could be inactive for the team's game Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals because of two broken ribs that have limited the backup quarterback the last few weeks.
Ryan says Friday that the team has not made a final decision to not play him -- contrary to an ESPN report.
A collection of early thoughts on the New York Jets week 13 match-up against the Arizona Cardinals, where the over/under shouldn’t be higher than 10 points.
1. This has the potential to be an epically awful offensive football game. Rex Ryan’s defenses generally perform very well against rookies and inexperienced quarterbacks. Remember what they did to Andrew Luck earlier in...
Who's on worst? Filip Bondy of the Daily News writing an It's a Wonderful Life type piece today in Missing Mann who got away. Jets fans chanting happy things, Bart Scott happy, Rex Ryan talking...

Kevin Kolb is likely to be sidelined again this week, which means rookie quarterback Ryan Lindley will get another start for the Cardinals.While Arizona has to feel that this year has slipped away from them, Rex Ryan is determined that his Jets will finish strong enough to slip into the playoffs.At 4-7 they’ll need to run the table, starting this week at home.All five remaining...
Week 12 Record: 1-1-1
Season Record: 13-21-2
Let’s go back, briefly, to my pick from last week’s Falcons/Buccaneers game. I’ll just copy and paste it verbatim because it’s glorious:
“Falcons -1 at Buccaneers: I think the Falcons win this game, and to me, if they win it they’re going to cover a one point spread.
/Watches in dismay as the Falcons win by 1″
Just in case...
Things may be terrible for the Arizona Cardinals, but Mark Sanchez and the New York Jets are the butt of jokes nationally.
Coach Rex Ryan still thinks his beleaguered team has a chance at the playoffs.
Sanchez and the Jets will try to rebound from an embarrassing performance by beginning to capitalize on a seemingly favorable season-ending stretch of schedule Sunday against the...
