The Jets' pass-happy offensive attack is reportedly unpopular with the players most likely to benefit from such a system: the wide receivers. Santonio Holmes, Plaxico Burress and Derrick Mason have gone individually to Jets head coach Rex Ryan to complain about offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer's system, reports Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. "Wideouts don't typically want to change when they're part of a pass-friendly offense," Mehta writes. "However, all of them recognize the importance of re-establishing a ground attack that has lost its way." The Jets throw the ball 62 percent of the time, but the lack...

Jets cameraman within the rules

Jets Rookie Can't Wait To Play

The New York Jets defense has been criticized by fans, the media, even its head coach Rex Ryan. So why not add a new face to the mix? That's what Jets rookie defensive lineman Kenrick Ellis is waiting for.

Politi: Jets coach Rex Ryan needs answers, not bravado, after third straight loss

Boisterous Jets coach left speechless after falling to rival Patriots

Myers: Time for Rex to take offense

Rex Ryan changed the culture of the Jets. He became the dominant sports figure here with a big mouth and the ability to back up almost everything that came out of it, making him a hero to Jets fans tired of being irrelevant. Now that the Jets are with the Eagles and Falcons as the most disappointing teams in the NFL, the blame goes right where the credit had gone.

Ryan doesn't see humbled Jets losing confidence

Rex Ryan and the New York Jets left New England searching for their swagger.

Sideshow typifies Jets-Pats rivalry

The New York Jets haven't yet arrived for Sunday's game, but Rex Ryan already is inside New England's head. The Jets head coach has squeezed every ounce of his blubbery frame squarely between the franchise's ears with his needling and freewheeling media approach. And try as they might, the Patriots can't drive him out. New England will deny this. Publicly, the...

Jets deny WRs questioned offensive coordinator

The New York Jets have denied that three wide receivers went to head coach Rex Ryan to question the job being done by their offensive coordinator.

McKnight Shines in Second Year

Last season, Rex Ryan’s cutting of Danny Woodhead in favor of holding onto David Clowney and Joe McKnight seemed like a bonehead move. On the New England Patriots in 2010, Woodhead went on to rack up 926 yards and six touchdowns while Clowney received one catch in all of 2010 and McKnight only ran for 189 yards. This year, though, McKnight is catching attention on Westhoff’s...

5 Surprise Waiver Pick-ups for Week 6

1. Joe McKnight, RB, NYJ - Call it a hunch. Call it foresight. Call it whatever you want. I wouldn't be surprised if Rex Ryan's return to "ground & pound" included some lightning. McKnight is almost too explosive to keep off the field, as was evidenced by his 107-yard kickoff return last week. And Shonn Greene's shown nothing that should make his job secure...

Jets deny criticism of coach's system

Despite a published report that suggested otherwise, the New York Jets insist they are a team in complete harmony. According to Sunday's report by the New York Daily News, receivers Derrick Mason, Santonio Holmes and Plaxico Burress all, at separate times in recent days, approached head coach Rex Ryan to complain about offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer and his system...

Jets Get Run Over in New England

There was a lot to like about the way the Jets played on Sunday afternoon against the Patriots, and then came the final defensive stand of the game. The Jets closed within 27-21 on a touchdown pass to Santonio Holmes and simply needed their defense to make enough plays to get off the field and give Mark Sanchez a chance to make another last second comeback. The Patriots were willing...

Jets can't stop Pats, fall in East after 30-21 loss

Nine months after the Jets befuddled Tom Brady and Bill Belichick in the playoffs, the pair of future Hall of Famers exacted revenge in the Patriots' 30-21 win over the Jets on Sunday in Foxborough. Rex Ryan's team came away empty from its three-game road trip to drop to third place (2-3) in the AFC East.
