New York Jets Mid-Season Perspective Piece

The New York Jets are 5-4 heading into the Bye. Let that sink in. The Jets were ranked 32/32 heading into Week One, lest we forget. Rex Ryan was a lame duck.

How could rookie capologist John Idzik, he of little talent evaluating acumen...

Can New York Jets Fans Accept Pains Of Rebuilding?

Mike Devito and Sione Pouha are gone. Laron Landry is visiting the Colts and the impending doom that Revis Island is on his way out hangs over the fan base like a guillotine. David Garrard is now a Jet. Affordable “Upside potential” players like Mike Goodson and Brandon Gibson are coming to visit. That may not enough for some Jet fans but they better get used to it.

New York Jets Free Agency – Sione Pouha Cut, What’s Next?

The New York Jets released Defensive Tackle Sione Pouha today, in a move that should surprise nobody. He is over 30 years old, has back issues and the Jets spent a 3rd round pick on his long term replacement in 2011, Kenrick Ellis. When healthy last season, Ellis was playing very well and should help fill the void left by Pouha, along with Mike DeVito who the team is making a...

Jets rule out Darrelle Revis and Dustin Keller, expect Sione Pouha back

The Jets got a surprising 48-28 victory over the Bills in their opener, but improving to 2-0 may prove to be very tough for them, especially without their top defensive player, Darrelle Revis, who has been ruled out for this week’s clash with the Steelers with a concussion. In his absence, Kyle Wilson will start and cover Antonio Brown, one of the AFC’s premier receivers, while...

Jets expect Dustin Keller to play, but not Sione Pouha

When the Jets take on the Bills this week, tight end Dustin Keller, who has been limited in practice, is expected to play, but nose tackle Sione Pouha will not. Keller’s presence will be a good thing because he led this miserable receiving corps in receiving last year, but Rex Ryan didn’t sound too confident about his chances to be 100% saying, “We’ll see how much it will...

Jets to use more 4 man fronts in 2012

The Jets have been a base 3-4 defense for years and that has remained the case under Head Coach Rex Ryan. However, defensive coordinator Mike Pettine says they will be using more 4 man defensive lines in 2012 because it “makes sense.” I agree with Pettine. The Jets’ 4 man line would probably have Sione Pouha and Muhammad Wilkerson at tackle and Quinton Coples and Calvin Pace...
