New York Jets coach Rex Ryan told reporters Monday that installing a three-receiver package as the team's base offense was a mistake. The Jets acquired receivers Plaxico Burress and Derrick Mason in the offseason to go with Santonio Holmes and Ryan tried to capitalize on the depth. But the team split its first four games among complaints from receivers about the offense. Mason eventually was traded. "I think maybe I got caught up in maybe being enamored with the type of personnel we had," Ryan admitted. Ryan said the Jets would return to its "Ground & Pound" philosophy featuring the running game, and the team is 2-1 since. During that span, running back Shonn Greene is averaging 20.6 carries and quarterback Mark Sanchez is averaging 28 throws. The Jets visit Buffalo on Sunday.

Rex Ryan: “We’re going to be tough to beat”

After sticking his foot in his mouth about how many rings he’d have if he coached the Chargers, Jets coach Rex Ryan has promised not to talk any more about Super Bowl rings. But Ryan is still Ryan, and that means he’s still talking. And after having a day to reflect on Sunday’s win over…

Forget WRs, coaches are new divas

The T.O. Show appears to be just about played out, wheezing and gasping for a last breath of relevance on Tuesday as he "worked out" for NFL teams, none of whom bothered to show. ESPN and The NFL Network were there, but that felt kind of like break-up sex -- a last final nod to better days and a reminder of why it is probably best they do not see each other any more going...

Maybin to Find a Larger Role?

One of the things that the Jets have lacked during Rex Ryan’s first two years with the team was a wreckless, hell-bent pass rusher who could wreak havoc to an opponent’s offensive line.  With the Jets addition of Aaron Maybin this year, have the Jets found their answer?  Used in pass rush packages over four games, Maybin has three sacks and three forced fumbles. According to...

Jets head into bye with winning feeling again

Just like that, the New York Jets have gone from gloom and doom to confident and fun-loving again. Two wins in a week can do that as Rex Ryan's team heads into its bye-week break. All of that talk about the Jets spiraling out of control has been replaced by the spunk and swagger that appeared to be missing earlier in the season. Ryan took an inadvertent swipe at Chargers coach...

JETS REPORT CARD

Rushing offense: A This was more in line with what coach Rex Ryan envisioned prior to the season, the line doing the job up front and Shonn Greene hitting the resulting holes with quickness and authority. The Jets' total of 162 yards marked the first time they went over 100 as a team in 2011. Greene's 112 yards on 20 carries was a season high for him. QB Mark Sanchez'...

It’s the Bye Week, Mon

FLORHAM PARK–It’s unclear who was in a better mood in anticipation of the bye week – the team or the media, but the peppiness was universal. Rex Ryan seemed hugely relieved that the return to the “Ground and Pound” seems to be working and, even better, having a positive impact on Mark Sanchez. “This is the offense that we built that he’s so familiar with,” Ryan said...

Embodying 'Mayhem'

In a month, outside linebacker Aaron Maybin has gone from a first-round flameout to a player the Jets are counting on to consistently make plays. "[I have seen] great production," coach Rex Ryan said yesterday as the team entered its bye week following Sunday's 27-21 win over the Chargers...
