It's tough to put entirely too much stock into NFL regular season games that take place before Halloween, there's no denying the importance of this weekend's Patriots-Jets showdown, at least for New York. The Jets enter Sunday's throwdown at Gillette Stadium with a 2-2 record and find themselves looking at not only the Patriots, but the Bills as well in the AFC East standings. While it is early still, the Jets have not looked impressive at all this season, especially in last week's ugly Sunday night loss to the Ravens. If there is one thing to snap the Jets out...

Last week’s game against Baltimore was as painful a game for Jets fans to watch as any game in the last 20 years. Not even the Kotite years produced a clunker that bad. For Mark Sanchez, the first 3 games of the season produced a bruised shoulder, concussion and broken nose. Ten minutes into this game, Sanchez was even money to leave in a body bag.
While innovation often starts in the collegiate ranks, it takes the NFL to really refine the execution of such a scheme. It also takes the NFL time to adjust. When new formations come into the league (the Wildcat, the Spread, etc.) often times they come at a time when NFL teams are ill-equipped to immediately adjust.
For years, the NFL has been looking to adjust to the pass...
The Jets begin the season at 2-2. Fans and analysts place the blame on head coach, Rex Ryan.
The big talk of the week for the New York Jets is the return of the “Ground and Pound.” It is a sensible move to pull back the passing offense, which has created too many turnovers and moved the Jets away from a successful identity. However, there needs to be some type of happy medium in the offensive game-plan. The running game needs to set up the passing game, hence there...
The rivalry is renewed. Rex Ryan and the New York Jets, coming off a 2 game skid, head to Foxboro for a meeting with their division rivals, and “friends”, the New England Patriots.

Could there be tension mounting within the Jets locker room? Are there players beginning to question predictable play calling from the offensive coordinator? Is there beginning to be disbelief amongst players that Sanchez is the guy to carry them to the next level as an offensive unit? What about the defensive unit, are they starting to feel as if the offense is not holding their...
I was out a bar last night watching the New York Yankees have their season come to an end. When I was approached by a friend from my town who is a “Jets” fan. I put that in quotes because it is hard to actually consider this individual a fan. He has never said a positive thing about the team and truly believes they are always some combination of awful and overrated. Rex Ryan...
The Jets are struggling to win games and those on the offensive side of the ball could be the reason. Yet some of those offensive players are speaking out. Is there more dissent in the ranks?
So the Jets had a good practice yesterday.
I know it’s important, I do, I honestly do, but we talkin bout practice man!
What are we talking about?
