Following a welcome home-esque performance by Jamaal Westerman on Sunday against the Washington Redskins, defensive coordinator Mike Pettine announced the linebacker has reclaimed his starting role in the base defense from Garrett McIntyre. Defensive coordinator Mike Pettine said Jamaal Westerman has supplanted Garrett McIntyre as the starting outside linebacker in the base defense. McIntyre had started the past three games. Westerman started against the Dolphins in October. “I could say that,” Pettine said when asked if Westerman is ahead of McIntyre. “That’s good competition between those two.” In Sunday’s game against the Redskins, Westerman replaced McIntyre after Roy Helu ran wild on the Jets early in the game. Westerman took the majority of the snaps in the base defense. “You get into certain positions where it’s ‘Hey, let’s feet the hot hand,’ ” Pettine said. “And Westerman came in and did a nice job, but I think both those guys know that they’re probably going to end up sha

New York Jets: What Does More Moore Mean?

The talk of this week has been the decision of the New York Jets to keep offensive consultant Tom Moore with the team full time the rest of the season. Moore had originally been working part time, only occasionally showing up for practices and games, including an appearance in the booth last week versus Washington. As you would expect, the coaching staff and players talk in reverential terms...

Moore Consulting: Let’s Play This Out a Bit …

The Jets have not made it a secret that Tom Moore is part of the Jets staff this season as a consultant — but what’s the end game?  Moore has made it abundantly clear that he is there to “strictly observe” and has denounced negativity in all forms.  He doesn’t like being negative?  Well … there goes any shot of him becoming an OC in New York … But let’s not forget...

Baker Beginning to Make a Name For Himself

Perhaps the most underrated players on any team are those on special teams. And no, I’m not referring to the Devin Hesters or Joe McKnights of the league, I’m talking about the guys who fight it out in the trenches to either help open up holes or shut them down. Third string tight end Josh Baker is one of those guys and he has the added bonus of being able to return the...

How Does One Define Priceless?

Answer:  So precious that its value cannot be determined. Question: What is Priceless? This could have been a quote from Alex Trebek on Jeopardy or it could have easily been uttered from anyone who attended the Monday night event at the Jets Atlantic Health Training Facility thanks to The New York Jets and MasterCard. Monday night I was fortunate enough to attend an event I will...

New York Jets Fans: Week 14 Rooting Guide

There is no way around this reality: We are going to know if the New York Jets are a very realistic playoff contender or a long shot pipe dream by the end of the day Sunday. Sadly, this season is at the point where I am nauseous worrying if the Jets will even have the chance be in the driver’s seat for the #6 seed in the AFC. That driver’s seat includes a daunting 3 game finish...

Rex Ryan wants Jets fans to cheer Mark Sanchez

No Letdown Allowed for Jets This Week

When thinking about this Sunday's game against the Chiefs, it is hard not to think about it as a microcosm of the entire Rex Ryan era. On the surface it looks like a game that the Jets should completely dominate to pick up their eighth victory of the season. The Chiefs are playing Tyler Palko at quarterback, Jamaal Charles was lost a long time ago and Kansas City has had a disappointing...
