FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Quinton Coples is a weed. And that's no knock on the sixteenth overall draft pick either. Weeds, like the dandelion, sprout fast -- setting up roots and, if not uprooted, continues to rapidly grow in strength and size.Much like weeds, Coples was not welcomed to many Jets fans' gardens -- instead desiring a prettier pass-rushing plant (Melvin Ingram, Bruce Irvin, Chandler Jones). While some saw a weed drafted at the midway point of the first round, Rex Ryan saw a budding beauty -- one that, he says, is finally ready to blossom.And not a moment...
BEST OF MAXIM

The New York Jets were 30,000 feet in the air, flying back home from Miami and already planning for their biggest fear.
How in the world are they going to replace Darrelle Revis?
Revis is likely gone for the season with a knee injury sustained against the Dolphins on Sunday, and Kyle Wilson has the tough and unenviable task of taking over for the All-Pro cornerback.
Like many great nations, the collapse of Revis Island is detrimental to all of its neighbors. The ability of Revis Island to shut down any enemies was how the cornerback made his reputation.But, like many prosperous nations, the most impressive trait was how he elevated all of his allies.Sure, Darelle Revis can play suffocating man-to-man coverage with the best. And many great receivers...
The best player on the Jets is out for the year and the Jets are headed South in the standings. And the Patriots battle with the hot Bills.
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan indicated today that they won’t place cornerback Darrelle Revis on season ending injured reserve just yet, in hopes that he’ll be back in time for the Super Bowl.
Rex is awfully optimistic to assume that his team is going to the Super Bowl after only playing three games. But then again, Revis is the best player on their entire team.
On the Monday following the previous day’s overtime victory over the Miami Dolphins, the New York Jets announced that cornerback Darrelle Revis would likely miss the entire season due to a torn right ACL injury. Revis apparently suffered the injury attempting to make a tackle on a receiver. Losing Revis certainly removes a propensity of fear towards the Jets defense, with opposing...
The loss of cornerback Darrelle Revis may weaken the New York Jets defense a bit for their game against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, but it also creates more headaches for 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman to try to figure out how the Jets will compensate. Rex Ryan and his Jets defensive staff are known for the variety of looks they throw at an offense, and now they...
San Francisco 49ers (2-1) at New York Jets (2-1)
Remember how the Jets’ chance to make the playoffs was on the conservative offense, good defense, don’t make mistakes, easy schedule model? Yeah, that doesn’t work if you can’t play good defense and without Darrelle Revis, they’re going to have a hard time doing so many of the things they normally do on defense. They also...
