Turn On The Jets:
New York Jets
San Francisco 49ers
St. Louis Rams
Joe Caporoso - 12 Pack
Chris Gross - Jets 23-Rams 17: Can New York turn a week of internal turmoil into enough motivation to grab a road victory in a must win situation? At what point does this team develop a chip on their shoulders for all the doubters and perceived negativity they are subject to, week in and week out? If I am Rex Ryan, my pregame speech is similar to Lou Brown’s in Major League:
“I’m not much for giving inspirational addresses, but I’d just like to point out that every newspaper in the country has picked us to finish last. The local press seems to think that we’d save everyone the time and trouble if we just went out and shot ourselves. Me, I’m for wasting sportswriters’ time. So I figured we ought to hang around for a while and see if we can give ‘em all a nice big sh*tburger to eat!”
Will the Jets channel their inner “Wild Thing Rick Vaughn” and go on a fairytale run into the postseason? Probably not. But, at the very least, they can salvage some respect headi

I am pretty sure I lost a bet earlier this season when I predicted Mark Sanchez would be benched by Week 10.
At the start of the 2012 season, things were looking okay for the Jets. All they really needed to focus on is getting through a tough first half, fix mistakes during the bye, and storm through a much easier second-half schedule.
But, the Jets did not do what they needed to...
New York Jets owner Woody Johnson told the media on Thursday that they’re going to evaluate quarterback Mark Sanchez just like any other player on the team. “Mark is a player on the team,” Johnson said, via the New York Daily News. “We’re going to evaluate him as we do the other players. He’ll be evaluated just like anybody else.” Then Johnson slightly changed his tune...
Despite the Jets offense being ranked 30th in the NFL, coach Rex Ryan and offensive coordinator Tony Sparano both said they see signs of improvement.
The Jets failed to score an offensive touchdown in Seattle last week and have scored six touchdowns total in seven of their nine games. Even with those struggles, Ryan said he is happy with the job Sparano has done in his first season...
Stat line: 15/20, 178 yards, 1 TD, 0 INT; 75% completion pct., 118.3 QB Rating
Season Stats: 168/314, 2,038 yards, 11 TD, 9 INT; 53.5 completion pct., 73.4 QB Rating
We’ve gotten to a point – and maybe rightfully so – where Mark Sanchez can do no right in the eyes of some Jets fans. Yesterday, Sanchez played a smart, effective, efficient, well-rounded game. He was sharp, confident...
Dallas defensive coordinator Rob Ryan doesn't pretend to ignore that the Cowboys are playing Cleveland for the first since the Browns dumped him when they fired Eric Mangini two years ago.
Even when he's pretending.
''Honestly, I'm going to say no,'' Ryan said when asked if he had discussed this week's personal motivation with his players. '...
IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Dallas defensive coordinator Rob Ryan doesn't pretend to ignore that the Cowboys are playing Cleveland for the first since the Browns dumped him when they fired Eric Mangini two years ago.
Even when he's pretending.
"Honestly, I'm going to say no," Ryan said when asked if he had discussed this week's personal motivation with his players...
Lots of quotes came out of Dallas Cowboys practice in the last 24 hours, including two notable former Browns.
Let’s start with the fullback. Lawrence Vickers, a 2006 6th-round pick by the Browns, left as a free agent following the 2010 season. Here were his comments on facing his former team, as reported by ESPNDallas.com:
“It’s personal, why wouldn’t it be? It anybody tells...
New York Jets running back Shonn Greene did not have many nice things to say about teammate Mark Sanchez during his interview with Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports on Wednesday, but at least he attached his name to the quotes. Greene said he felt badly for Sanchez, but it seemed clear that he believes the Jets need to give Tim Tebow a shot given their 3-6 record with Sanchez starting...
Lead writer Nick St. Denis and AFC East Daily contributors Dan Begnoche and Sean Donovan pick the New York Jets' inter-conference contest with the St. Louis Rams. Nick's take: When Jets coach Rex Ryan and Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer shared the field during Schotty's time with the Jets, Rex's defense ran the show. I think that holds true when the...
Former New York Jets running back LaDanian Tomlison said he believes he knows who called Tebow "terrible" in a report by the New York Daily News on Wednesday. Tomlison said on his Sirius XM Radio Show Wednesday that after reading the quotes he believes cornerback Antonio Cromartie and linebacker Bart Scott were the ones ripping Tebow. Scott fired back at Tomlison telling...
For at least one day, the New York Jets halted the downward spiral.
Mark Sanchez was solid for the first time in several weeks, the unquestioned No. 1 quarterback presiding over a turnover-free offense in a 27-13 victory over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.
The beleaguered Sanchez was an efficient 15 of 20 passing for 178 yards and a touchdown, while Tim Tebow was merely a footnote...
The New York Jets may have saved their season. For now. And may have saved their head coach his job also. For now. In coming to St. Louis and slapping the Rams around the Edward Jones Dome 27-13, the Jets have given themselves a reason to celebrate and keep the New York media off their backs. For now.Here are five things we learned from the game on Sunday:1. New York quarterback...
The New York Jets season received a shot of life with a 27-13 win over the St. Louis Rams. However, it will take an upset over the New England Patriots this Thursday night to truly make them relevant in the AFC playoff picture again. Here is a collection of early thoughts -
1. The big injury news this week is that Patriots tight end Rob Grokowski will not play because of a broken...
The New York Jets (4-6) have a playoff pulse. They completed dominated the Rams (3-6-1) in St. Louis in one of their most complete games of the season.
The only negatives of the game, besides Tim Tebow’s incredible lack of productivity, was Nick Folk having another field goal blocked and his first outright miss of the season.
The Jets opened the game driving...
