Found December 06, 2011 on Turn On the Jets:
Picture this scenario for the New York Jets: at about 7 PM this Sunday night, they sit at 8-5 and in complete control of their own playoff destiny. If they win out, they will be in. No scoreboard watching. No worrying about another team giving them help. It isn’t that far fetched. The New York Jets host the Kansas City Chiefs at 1 PM, in a game that they should win. Considering how stingy the Chiefs D has been and their ability to run the football. This will be far from a walkover but you would hope in the end, a Rex Ryan defense will triumph over Tyler Palko. Let’s then take a look at who the other 7-5 teams in the AFC are playing. Fresh off the whooping they took in Miami, Oakland must travel to face the Green Bay Packers. I don’t think it is a leap to think that the Raiders won’t be ending Green Bay’s hope for a perfect season. Tebow Christ and Denver will be hosting Chicago, in a game they probably should win to take control of the AFC West. The Cincinnati Bengals host the Hous...

Chiefs QB Orton injured on first play after relieving Palko

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Kyle Orton stepped in for the ineffective Tyler Palko in the second quarter and promptly injured a finger on his throwing hand against the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

Transcript: Rex Ryan 12/5

On any injury updates from the game… I think with Joe (McKnight), I’m not sure what the MRI showed, I know he had one and was on his way back. Again, it sounded like a hyper-extended elbow. We’ll see how it is. Obviously, if you’re a running back, you have to be able to grip the football and protect it. So that’s something. Jason Taylor played with a hyper-extended elbow...

No more panic as Jets pull out late victories

These nerve-racking New York Jets sure have a flair for the dramatic lately. Maybe that deflating loss to Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos nearly three weeks ago rubbed off a little. ''We're a team that just wants to win and get in the playoffs and see what happens,'' coach Rex Ryan said Monday on a conference call. ''Our goal is intact, even though...

One Hit Wonder: Orton 1 and Done for the Chiefs

Tyler Palko got the start on Sunday for the Kansas City Chiefs against the Chicago Bears.  After a scoreless first quarter and ineffective quarterback play the Chiefs called on veteran Kyle Orton to jumpstart the offense.  The Chiefs had not scored an offensive touchdown in 10 consecutive quarters and recently claimed Orton off waivers to boost their QB play after he was released...

Despite Crackdown on Vicious Hits, Unsportsmanlike Conduct Still Persists in NFL

By: Rich Bergeron ‘ We’ve seen a crotch kick, an arm stomp, late hits, helmet to helmet launches, and even Jets Coach Rex Ryan cursing at spectators. Flags are flying on NFL fields from coast to coast this year for questionable hits, and the old highlight reel collisions are no longer legal. Players are still getting hurt, and many are playing hurt. From Cowboy QB Tony Romo taking...
