David Harris says film of Jets' defense was 'disgusting'

NEW YORK (AP) David Harris gave two thumbs down - and a scathing review - to the film of the New York Jets' suddenly struggling defense. The veteran linebacker is normally low-key and reserved, but was uncharacteristically critical while discussing the Jets' 34-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders in which New York gave up 451 yards in total offense. Derek Carr threw four touchdown passes...

Jets' David Harris calls out defense for 'disgusting' effort in loss

For the second consecutive week, the New York Jets defense looked pedestrian. And for the second consecutive week, the Jets lost.By no means is that a coincidence, as the defense has carried the team for much of the season. That was hardly the case against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, who torched the Jets defense with 451 yards of total offense -- the most New York has allowed...

New York Jets re-sign MLB David Harris

David Harris is, by all reports, a nice guy, a likeable teammate, and easy to coach. He’s been a defensive captain and signal caller for the Jets defensively for years and he’s been a leader on and off the field. I feel like that gets him overpaid. Four off-seasons ago, Harris signed a 4-year, 36 million dollar deal with the Jets, even though he graded out below average in his...

Jets Re-sign David Harris for $15 Million Guaranteed

Fearing that they might lose linebacker David Harris to the Buffalo Bills and former head coach Rex Ryan, the New York Jets seemingly overpaid big time to retain the veteran. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Jets re-signed Harris to a three-year, $21.5 million contract with $15 million guaranteed over the first two years. That’s a whole heck of a lot of money to pay for...

If ‘Jay Cutler FumbleFace’ isn’t turned into a meme, it’ll be a real shame (vid/pics)

Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears got up early and held on to beat the New York Jets on Monday night by a score of 27-19, but if it hadn’t been for a quick whistle to halt a potentially critical play in its tracks, things may have turned out quite differently. Jets linebacker David Harris […] The post If ‘Jay Cutler FumbleFace’ isn’t turned into a meme, it’ll be a real...

Quiet and consistent, Jets' Harris still tackling

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) David Harris was happy to spare a few minutes to chat before he headed home - and then he heard the topic of conversation. ''This story,'' the reporter informed him, ''is about you.'' The New York Jets' playmaking linebacker shrugged his shoulders, scrunched up his face and sighed. ''Me? Why?'' he asked, acting as if he were stunned that anyone would want...

5 reasons why the New York Jets can make the playoffs

I try to keep everything relative. I cover one team for isportsweb, but to say one team definitively will or will not make the playoffs ignores what the other fifteen teams in their conference are doing. Maybe a middling team has out-of-nowhere success (this tends to happen every year) and robs a playoff spot my New York Jets are vying for. But I’m here to write about the Jets...
