Can New York Stand Up to the Bully?

Wednesday’s practice was closed to the media as the team just did a run-through in sweats. Around the locker room the mood was light, but there was something in the air, a palpable focus of sorts. While Mangini and the Jets do it week in and week out, it’s pretty hard to downplay this Thursday’s…

Disappointing End for Promising Corner

Well this surely isn’t what the Jets were expecting when they used the 57th overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft on that athletic and physically-gifted cornerback out of Clemson. But as it turned out, Justin Miller’s greatest asset in college proved to be his strongest suit in the NFL, while his coverage-skills suffered. In…

Law Comes as a Surprise

When Eric Mangini demoted Dwight Lowery from the starting cornerback position during the second half of the Jets’ 26-17 win at the Bills on Nov. 2, it was clear that the rookie cornerback had his first slump in the NFL. Lowery burst onto the scene after a strong preseason and starred in the Jets’ season-opening…

First Half Grades

At times they have not looked it, but halfway through 2008, the Jets are a first-place team. As poorly as the Jets played in their Oct. 19 loss to the Raiders, they trumped any doubts that they could compete for the division with last week’s 26-17 win at the first-place Bills. Quarterback: B- Through eight…

Darby Tabbed as Starter

Rams running back Steven Jackson was listed on the injury report today as “doubtful” for Sunday’s game with the Jets after Jackson was unable to practice this week due to a quad injury. But even though St. Louis did not declare Jackson out for the game on their report, interim head coach Jim Haslett announced…

Rams Hurting

Well it sure does not sound like linebacker David Harris will be returning to the lineup anytime soon, especially after Eric Mangini admitted today that Harris is a “longer shot” to play this week. Mangini did not provide a timetable for the injury, only expressing that “I don’t think the time frame is really set one way…

Brown Returns

The Jets signed defensive end Kareem Brown to the practice squad. Brown was waived by the Jets Nov. 1 to open a roster spot for linebacker Jason Trusnik, who was activated from the PUP list. Brown was inactive for the first seven games this season, but he did show promise in the preseason, when he was…

Jets’ Run Defense Keeps Opponents in Neutral

Jets Head Coach Eric Mangini called yesterday’s 26-17 win over the Buffalo Bills as “probably our most complete game that we’ve had so far this season” but it was the Jets’ run defense that propelled Gang Green to a victory yesterday and a three-way tie atop the AFC East. The Jets allowed just 30 yards…

Jets-Bills Review

What a win for the Jets. Heading into today’s matchup with the Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium, the Jets had heard their skeptics. During recent victories over the Bengals and Chiefs, they were criticized rather than praised for their inconsistency. During losses to the Chargers and Raiders, they were told how embarassing they were. A future…

AFC East Remains Wide Open

As the NFL season began only a few short months after the Patriots were knocked off the league’s mantle by the Giants in Super Bowl XLII, one message remained clear in the AFC East: The Patriots were the team to beat. It was hard to ignore the premium talent on the New England roster. After…
