Jets tight end Dedrick Epps had never seen anything like it before."I can't lie that's rare. That's as rare as it gets for the first two guys on the depth chart to go down like that," he said following his team's 17-12 loss to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.The event Epps was referring to was the first and second string tight ends, Dustin Keller and Josh Baker, leave the game and not return due to injuries within thirty minutes of each other. Keller leaving with a hamstring injury following a 24-yard catch to open the game and Baker after...

The New York Jets are still searching for the end zone.
Mark Sanchez can't get them there, and neither can Tim Tebow.
After three preseason games, the Jets' offensive ineptitude has become a punch line - especially since they're the first team in 35 years to go this long without a touchdown. Sure, it's still only the preseason and the Jets insist they're not...
The owner of the New York Jets, Woody Johnson, doesn’t tweet often but when he does, it gets attention. He of course started that Jets football is on tonight, but in the next tweet he created some comic relief reaction on twitter from a ton of fans.
He said that the Jets are working on a Touchdown song. Why is this funny?
The Jets are the ONLY team in the NFL who hasn’t...
Could the New York Jets use Tim Tebow as a full time running back? (Credit: AP Photo)
After a rather slow start to their pre-season, one in which the offense has yet to score a touchdown, some in the New York media are discussing a radical idea for using Tim Tebow.
The New York Post’s Steve Serby wrote a column on Tuesday proposing that Tim Tebow be moved to running back full...
New York Jets tight end Josh Baker is believed to have a torn ACL, sidelining him for the entire 2012 season. Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News first reported the details of the injury. To anyone watching the game, the severity of his injury was apparent immediately. The Jets already lacked quality depth at tight end and now that has been underscored, especially with Dustin...
New York Jets linebacker David Harris went down with an ankle injury during tonight’s preseason game against the Panthers. They also lost tight end Dustin Keller to a hamstring injury.

It’s the preseason. It’s important not to get too excited or too worried about anything that happens in the preseason. Starters rarely play into the 2nd half and game plans are as vanilla as they come on both sides of the ball. Countless players don’t play for precautionary reasons with injuries they would play through during the regular season. Aaron Rodgers is 20 of 41 (48...
Jebus wants this mic to be liveMy friend and occasional FTT writer Tracer Bullet posted about the NFL Network's Tim Tebow documentary, with the pretty by-the-book reaction of how irritating this whole thing is. My reaction was as follows:Like all men having to wear hats at all times did for us, the Tebow Phenomenon is going to comfort future generations that they are much, much...
For the second straight year, Nick Folk has won a training-camp competition to be the Jets' starting kicker.
Folk's challenger, Josh Brown, indicated on his Twitter account this morning that his time with the team is over. A person with knowledge of the Jets' decision confirmed that Brown has, indeed, been cut. That person requested anonymity because the Jets have not...
The New York Jets have a major problem. They've played three preseason games, and they still haven't put the ball in the endzone. At this point, it's hard to imagine Tony Sparano feeling comfortable about his job security as the Jets prepare for their final preseason game against the Eagles.
Last night's game against Carolina showed us a few things. First off...
The right tackle position as been a source of frustration and bewilderment for the New York Jets. Will fourth-year pro Austin Howard be a long-term fix for the Green-and-White?
In the first edition of the Stat Attack, the New York Jets' dress rehearsal is widely panned, as Gang Green comes up short in the red zone once again.
Looking at the NFC East right now, you could probably make a convincing argument that the weakest unit on all four teams in that division is the offensive line.
In New York, Eli Manning's blind side is in trouble with Will Beatty hurt and Mark Sanchez's front side is in jeopardy as the Jets look for a right tackle solution not named Wayne Hunter.
NEW YORK (AP) -- The Jets and Rams have completed their swap of struggling right tackles, with New York acquiring Jason Smith from St. Louis for Wayne Hunter.
Both Smith, the No. 2 overall pick by the Rams in the 2009 draft, and Hunter had lost their starting jobs and the trade gives both a chance to rejuvenate their careers elsewhere.
Smith was due 4 million this season, but a...
According to Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger, the New York Jets have officially traded tackle Wayne Hunter to the St. Louis Rams for tackle Jason Smith.
And now, the Hunter-Smith swap is done, source says. #nyj
