Coming into the season the Jets were viewed as a joke, projected to win 4, maybe 5 games. At the half way point they are 4-4 because their coaching staff, led by Rex Ryan has put them in the best situation to win.Rookie Geno Smith hasn't had much success so far this season, but he hasn't had to. The Jets have leaned on their top 10 rushing attack and a top 15 defense, letting Geno Smith pick his spots.The same can't be said about the Dolphins, who have tried to be a team that they are not, a pass happy team that can beat you by 20 points.Play calling has been the reason for two if not three Dolphin losses to this point. Ryan Tannehill has been set up to fail, behind a faulty offensive line and having to attempt 34 passes or more in 7 out of 8 games so far this season.Teams have been able to sit on the pass and blitz Tannehill repeatedly, forcing him into poor throws. Combinations of sacks and incomplete passes caused so many three and outs that a gassed Miami Defense is ...

In what was arguably their best all-around performance of 2013, the New York Jets continued their surprising run this season and upset the visiting New Orleans Saints 26-20 on Sunday afternoon, sending Drew Brees and company home empty-handed while improving to 5-4 on the year. Keeping pace with the third-place Miami Dolphins (4-4) who defeated the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday...
Rookie quarterback Geno Smith took a major step forward in Week 9 by not turning the ball over to the opposition and taking what the Saints' defense gave him. While the final stat sheet won't tell the whole story, Smith's smart approach helped the Jets pull out a surprise win at MetLife Stadium.
BY NICK ST. DENISTwo weeks ago, Rex Ryan had to gameplan for tight end Rob Gronkowski. This week, he's prepping to face Jimmy Graham.You know, just your typical 1a and 1b, in no particular order."Oh man, they’re both outstanding," Ryan said Thursday, via NewYorkJets.com. "Gronk is probably a little more physical down the field than Graham. Graham has probably...
Just as he has all week, Chris Ivory said Sunday evening that he approached the New York Jets' Week 9 bout with his former team, the New Orleans Saints, "like just another game." If Ivory truly was indifferent Sunday, it didn't look like it. The bruising Gang Green tailback ran with attitude and conviction on his way to an 18-carry, 139-yard showing, capping it...
The New Orleans Saints march into Met Life Stadium to play the New York Jets. Yep, it will be brother against brother. It will be a juggernaut offense against an improving defense. It is an improved defense going against a rookie quarterback. It will be patterns adhered or broken?Geno Smith will break two season habitsIt has been Smith's pattern to play better on odd...
Going back into games to look for more insight and evidence is usually a fun and useful tactic, but it took a lot out of me to look back at the Jets-Bengals massacre. Regardless, I came away with more interesting snap counts of defensive players in Rex Ryan’s complicated schemes and I noted where players were lining up. For that spreadsheet, click here. Let’s put aside...
Rob Ryan is portraying himself as the more serious brother this week.
Albeit with a self-serving jab mixed in.
The Saints' defensive coordinator greeted reporters Friday by holding up the plain white back side of a play chart.
The message was that he wasn't going to try to one-up his brother - Jets head coach Rex Ryan - in his game-week media session because he was more...

There’s really no way to sugarcoat Sunday’s performance in Cincinnati, on either side of the ball. Simply put, Rex Ryan & Co. were outmatched and embarrassed on the road.
While the defense put together another solid performance against the run (holding Cincinnati to just 79 total yards and a 3.2 ypc average), it struggled to have the same impact vs. the pass. The front four...
It will be a family affair on Sunday as New York Jets coach Rex Ryan faces off with twin brother Rob Ryan, the defensive coordinator of the New Orleans Saints.

So it’s safe to say that the New York Jets had a tough one last week. We knew it was going to be hard for them to win, but we had no idea it would be that bad. After suffering a 49-9 loss at the hands of the Cincinnati Bengals, it doesn’t get any easier for Gang Green in week nine when they host the New Orleans Saints.
This week’s matchup...
If the Jets are going to break out of their pattern of maddening mediocrity, now would be a good time — beginning Sunday against the high-powered Saints at MetLife Stadium. If the Jets are going to make anyone believe in them, it starts with the Saints.
“The red light has to come on now,” veteran guard Willie Colon told The Post Friday. “We have to take care of our own business...
Even with the recent struggles of first round draft choice Dee Milliner Rex Ryan still believes he can turn the rookies’ season around. In fact, Gang Green’s head coach believes the former Alabama star can be the best rookie corner in the league this year.
