East Rutherford, NJ- The Jets came out the complete opposite of last week going down 14-0 with not even six minutes off the clock. Turnovers and Missed opportunities were the story on Monday night as the Jets lost another heartbreaker to the Bears 27-19.
With under a minute to go in the game Geno Smith drove the Jets all the way down to the Bears nine-yard line only down eight points. However it was to no avail as on fourth and five Smith was under pressure and threw up a ball, which Jeremy Kerely caught but was out of bounds. Read the rest of this entry »

The Chicago Bears come into MetLife Stadium tonight to face off against the New York Jets at 8:20 PM. Two hours until game time here are the things you need to know.
Eric Decker who has not being practicing all week is a game-time decision. On the sideline Decker told Lisa Salters from ESPN that he “Feels good, and I’m up” and ready to go. It looks like Geno Smith will have his number one receiver along with the rest of his starting offense tonight. Read the rest of this entry »

Florham Park, NJ- This whole offseason the entire feel around the league was that the Jets had enough defense to win games, but maybe not enough offense. Last week was an indication that is not the case. After going up 21-3 in the fist quarter the Jets defense couldn’t hold on to the lead and ended up losing 31-24.
Since Rex Ryan has been the head coach of the Jets it has always been defense first. Last week with the most points the Jets have scored in the first quarter in years the defense couldn’t step up and put that final nail in the coffin. The one drive that killed the defense was right before half time when the Jets let the Packers drive 97 yards for the touchdown which killed any momentum the Jets had going into halftime.

Florham Park, NJ- For the second straight season the Packers started someone on their offensive line who was a rookie. Last season it was tackle David Bakhtiari who started against the San Francisco 49ers. This season it was center Corey Linsley who started against the Seattle Seahawks. Both games ended in a Packers loss.
If there is one thing the Jets can hang their hats on it is that the Packers offensive line is young and inexperienced to say the least. If you add that with the injury to Bryan Bulaga, the Packers starting right tackle, the Jets defensive line could be in for a huge day. Read the rest of this entry »

The Jets got off to a good start last Sunday as they defeated rookie quarterback Derek Carr and the Raiders 19-14. This week is going to be a little more of a challenge for the green and white as they will have to travel up to Lambeau Field to take on Aaron Rodgers and the Packers.
Last week’s game against the Raiders was anything but pretty for the Jets as they finished the game with eleven penalties and two turnovers. Rex Ryan said after the game on Sunday, “This game should have been a rat kill and is wasn’t, it was close because of the penalties.” Frankly Ryan is right if the Jets could have held on to the ball and not committed so many penalties in the red zone the Jets would have won by double digits easily. The reason they didn’t lose the game was because they were going up against a rookie quarterback in Derek Carr. Read the rest of this entry »

Florham Park, NJ- Last season the Jets didn’t have one wide receiver on their team catch more than 50 passes. This season they hope to change that statistic.
Yesterday on ESPN Radio Mark Schlereth, a former offensive lineman for the Denver Broncos, ripped into Eric Decker. Calling him a “Marginal number two receiver at best.” The man they call “Stink” gave a pretty strong take on a guy who shined for his former team. “Decker in my mind was the fourth option in Denver, It’s not that he’s a bad player, he’s not a bad player he is just a product of that offense,” Schlereth said.

Florham Park, NJ- It’s that time of the year again when people read ends upon ends of material. Do hours of research and prepare. Not for the NFL regular season. But for the Fantasy Football season. In years past the Jets haven’t really had any fantasy football studs. However this season they have a couple of players that you should consider drafting in one of your leagues. I am going to give you five Jets players that if taken in the right spot could help your fantasy team win a championship this season.
Chris Johnson RB-Round 3-4
When Chris Johnson was with Tennessee he was a first round pick every season. Johnson showed he could put up points by running and catching the football. People keep saying Johnson is on the decline of his career, and that may be true but let me give you this to think about. For six straight seasons Johnson has rushed for over 1000 yards. No current NFL running back has been able to say they have done that. With the move from Tennessee to New York I think it only increases his value. With the system that offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg runs with the Jets expect Johnson to get the ball a lot, whether it be on the ground of through the air. If you can get him in the third or even fourth round this could be a huge steal for you. With the way the Jets will use Johnson this season I expect him to finish in the top ten for fantasy running backs. Especially in PPR leagues. Read the rest of this entry »

Florham Park, NJ- After a brutal performance by the Jets in their last dress rehearsal, against the Eagles, the Jets have a lot of decisions to make by Monday morning. As is stands right now the Jets have 75 men on their roster, by 4PM tomorrow they will need to trim it down to 53. That means there are a lot of players who are on the bubble of the roster looking over their shoulders thinking what they could have done better to make this team. Read the rest of this entry »

Florham Park, NJ- Today is the last time the Jets will put on the pads before they start playing games that really count. The Jets will travel down the New Jersey Turnpike to play their annual game against the Philadelphia Eagles. This will be the last chance for players who are on the bubble of making the team. They will have to show Rex Ryan and his staff that they belong with the final 53 and that they can play for the green and white Read the rest of this entry »

Florham Park, NJ- The Jets took the practice field in front of fans for one of the last times this summer as the Jets are just about ready to break camp. Tomorrow will be the last time the Jets have an open practice for the fans and it will be held at gang green’s old stomping grounds, Hofstra University in Long Island. Rex Ryan told reporters after practice, “I like going there, we are looking forward to going there. It’s tough because you try to tell your players this is our original fan base.” It will be the first time the Jets are returning to Hofstra after a couple of years of absence.
