Turn On The Jets:
Nothing like an arbitrary power poll based on no system whatsoever, right? The AFC remains a conference stacked with mediocrity, however we are starting to get an idea of what the playoff race is going to look like throughout November and December. Voice your disagreements in the comments section or over on Facebook or Twitter -
SUPER BOWL CONTENDER
1. Houston (7-1) - A balanced team, who can beat you in a number of ways. It is still hard to trust Matt Schaub in a big spot until he wins a few big games though. Regardless, they should cruise to the AFC South title and a bye.
2. Pittsburgh (5-3) - Surprised? You shouldn’t be. Nobody could watch the past few weeks and honestly say they haven’t looked substantially better than the banged up Ravens. Pittsburgh has a Super Bowl winning QB playing a high level and a Super Bowl winning coach, along with enough playmakers to make noise in January. Look for them to win the AFC North, despite currently being a game behind Baltimore.
3. New Eng...

In a survey of 103 NFL players from 27 teams by Sporting News, the Jets coach was named the most overrated coach, landing 35 first-place votes.
The Jets reportedly are reluctant to bench the struggling Mark Sanchez because the team wants to get its money's worth after signing him to a three-year extension last offseason.
Rex Ryan and the New York Jets did not play this past weekend. That has not kept him or his team out of the news, however, as Ryan rarely remains silent for more than a day or so at a time. he just can’t help himself. But after another disappointing start to the 2012 NFL season that has resulted in a 3-5 start, Ryan admits that his Jets are not really in playoff contention in what...
The Turn On The Jets staff discusses what match-up they are most looking forward to this weekend when the New York Jets travel to Seattle to take on the Seahawks. Make sure to give everybody a follow on Twitter -
Joe Caporoso - The Jets aren’t beating Seattle unless they do two things: slow down Marshawn Lynch (keep him somewhere in the 60-80 total rushing yards area) and don’t...
Here I was ready to write a feel good article about the New York Jets when they clog up my Twitter feed with foolish decisions. First and most importantly, the organization hasn’t been proactive enough about sending support to hurricane victims throughout New Jersey and New York. We have heard about the New York Giants heading to South Jersey to pitch in. Where are the Jets? Outside...
Rex Ryan has found the positive side of being voted the most overrated coach in the NFL.
A poll of 103 players in The Sporting News had Ryan with 35 votes, beating New England's Bill Belichick, who had 16.
But the New York Jets coach jokes: ''My first thought was I looked and saw who was second. Hey, I finally beat Belichick. I got him. I knew it would take time, but...
Jets coach Rex Ryan hoped his team would get healthy during the bye week. It has, but it's still not 100 percent.
LB Bart Scott (toe), RB Joe McKnight (ankle) and NT Kenrick Ellis (toe) will not practice Monday. The Jets do have some players practicing on a limited basis who have been out: S Eric Smith (knee), TE Jeff Cumberland (wrist) and RB Bilal Powell (shoulder).
I admit that I can often get carried away when it comes to talking about New York Jets head coach, Rex Ryan. I call him a loudmouth. I have said that he has no idea what he is doing. I have referred to him as overrated.
As it turns out, I am not alone. The NFL players happen to agree with my comments and feelings toward Ryan.
At the midseason point of the 2012 NFL season, the Sporting...
When approached for comment about Tim Tebow and Mark Sanchez being voted the two most overrated players in the league, Jets coach Rex Ryan struggled to come up with one.
But when approached for comment about himself being voted the most overrated coach in the league, he predictably had many things to say. One of which was that he wasn’t offended by it (yeah right) and surprise...
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan is not all that upset about recently being voted the most overrated coach in the NFL. Instead, the Jolly Green Giant has found a way to put a positive spin on the whole thing. If nothing else, Rex can now say he beat Bill Belichick at something.
“My first thought was I looked and saw who was second,” Ryan said on Wednesday according to the NY...
The Week 9 bye week offered the New York Jets the opportunity to gather themselves and prepare for the second half of the season, which can prove to be a joyous tale of perseverance or potentially the final nail in the coffin for Mark Sanchez.
The AFC is certainly not as deep as it has been in previous years. In fact, the mediocrity has given the chance for the Jets to spin their...

Here are five things we can take away from this week's game:The Texans Can Win DirtyThe Bills hung around way too long in a game they should have been crushed in. A lot of credit goes to Buffalo, but most goes to the Texans offense who came out very flat. In the end they were able to string some yards together and win by a wide margin and that is what good teams do-- stay in...
HOUSTON (AP) -- The Houston Texans are doing quite well without Mario Williams.
Matt Schaub threw two touchdown passes, Arian Foster ran for 111 yards against Buffalo's NFL-worst rush defense and the Texans beat the Bills and their former No. 1 draft pick 21-9 on Sunday.
Andre Johnson caught eight passes for 118 yards and Foster scored for the fifth straight game for the Texans...
