Quinton Coples will be a BUST:
Quinton Coples: Will be a B.U.S.T??!!
BRUTALLY. UNUSUAL. SPECIAL. TALENT.
Heading into the 2012 NFL draft, the New York Jets had needs at multiple positions including a right tackle, a deep threat wide receiver, a safety, and finally, a pass rusher. In each of the past two seasons, the Jets leader in sacks has not been impressive for gang green; in 2010, Bryan Thomas led the team with six, and in 2011, Aaron Maybin, a situational pass rusher, also recorded six sacks to lead a team that is so blitz oriented, and known for its complex and creative defense.
So, when Jake Steinberg, the best Jets reporter in the business, tweeted fans asking who the Jets should take with the 16th pick the day before the draft, I made sure to respond to him right away.
That very next day on April 26th 2012, The New York Jets Selected Quinton Coples, defensive end out of the University of North Carolina. Following the pick, many NFL experts from all over the cou...

Santonio Holmes did an interview on the NFL Network last night, most of you probably saw it and more of you surely know about the interview and what he said by now. I don't normally like to write a piece on someone else's interview that everyone has access to, but like Will McAvoy from the new HBO show The Newsroom, "I'm on a mission to civilize."This isn'...
The New York Jets defense struggled heavily when it came to covering the tight end last season. Basically, if a team had a good receiving tight end, they exploited the hell out of Rex Ryan’s defense. Jason Witten finished with 110 yards, including a 64 yarder. Fred Davis grabbed 6 passes for 99 yards. Brent Celek went off for 156 yards and a touchdown. Rob Gronkowski pulled in...
In the past, I've been accused of being a Tim Tebow hater, and that's not simply not true. He's a dynamic player, but I'm not sure he can be successful in a long term capacity as an NFL starter. Regardless of your personal feelings on Tebow as a starting quarterback, it's a proven fact that he can excite a fanbase like no other player in the NFL, and for the Jets...

“One day you have a fight the next day you make up,” Holmes said.
He also took some time...

Citing a source, The New York Post is reporting that the New York Jets will not re-sign safety Jim Leonhard. Last season, Leonhard suffered a torn patellar tendon in his right knee in December, which prematurely ended his season in the final year of his contract.
The Jets signed free...
Ir is highly unlikely that the Jets brought in Tim Tebow simply to be a backup quarterback or a contributor on special teams. As Rex Ryan and the New York coaching staff have mentioned, Tebow is expected to receive several snaps per game and be a big part of the team’s offense. He may be bluffing, but Ryan has made it clear that opponents should be ready for a dose of both Mark...
According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen via NFL.com, the New York Jets can only wait and see if cornerback Darrelle Revis holds out from the start of training camp.
“I think (the Jets) are going to see what Revis does,” Mortensen said. “He’s kept everyone guessing. I’m almost going to be surprised if he’s there day one.”
I wouldn’t be shocked if Revis decides...
New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes was a guest on the NFL Network via ProFootballTalk.com and said that having two quarterbacks taking the first-team reps won’t work in the NFL.
“I don’t think so,” Holmes said. “Because you have to allow one quarterback to get in the rhythm of a game. And it starts from the preparation of practice.”
The Jets will be an interesting team to keep an eye on this season. If their season gets off to a shaky start I see the wheels falling off.
It isn’t Tebow’s fault that he is a megastar for off the field reasons, but the Jets are going to try to carry out something that has proven not to work in the NFL.
Santonio Holmes shares his thoughts on the Two Quarterback system..
Jets mercurial wideout Santonio Holmes shared his thoughts with the NFL network crew on how he thinks Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow will coexist in New York.
If you ever needed proof that owning an NFL franchise is a very fruitful endeavor, Forbes Magazine has it. Forbes ranked the 50 most valuable sports franchises around the world and all 32 NFL teams made the list. The New York Jets checked in at No. 12 on the full list and are the fifth [...]
It seems that most analysts, with the exception of Hugh Douglas as Don alluded a few days ago, are picking the Buffalo Bills to finish second in the AFC East this season. While I agree that the Bills will be improved from last year's 6-10 team that finished the season 1-8, those predictions are also based on the assumption that the Jets are trending downward.
