- HOT BUTTON ISSUE: The thin line between Hijinks & Hazing
Oh, it’s nothing but a little locker room hijinks. During the dogs days of training camp, the boys will be boys. What’s wrong with a little rough housing amongst players? They do play a game, after all. Quit being so sensitive and grow a pair. Is it really that big of a deal?
I’m sick of [...]

- Biggest Offseason Failure; Lack of Blocking Tight End
Florham Park, NJ- Jets fans have currently taken to the Internet to voice their displeasure with Mike Tannenbaum. The main complaint is about a failure to address the continuing problem of Wayne Hunter as the starting right tackle. On it’s face it’s seems worthy of the rage and fury that is brewing within a segment [...]

- Morning wake-up call: Day 27
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — The Jets hit the road again. Well, not really.
On Tuesday, they will hold their annual Family Night practice. This year it will be at MetLife Stadium, starting at 5:30 p.m. It was originally scheduled for Hofstra, but it was moved because the football stadium on campus wasn’t available.
It cuts down the travel time for the Jets, and don’t think that doesn’t make them happy.
Fans probably won’t see a full-scale practice with pads.
- Hang in there Jets fans! Oops, wrong word…be patient Jets fans!
Don’t worry, Wayne Hunter was auditioning for a part in Swan Lake and Mr. T is still the best Cap guy while Rex is still the best defensive coach. Now all we need is a GM and head coach and we’ll be in business.
- Jets Family Night At MetLife Stadium (8/21)
The Jets will be holding a practice, which is open to the public on Tuesday night. It is being held at MetLife Stadium and the best news is that it is free to the public. Pulling in to the parking lot and not paying for parking might send you into shock, but it is well [...]

- Three things we learned on Day 26
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Observations from Monday:
1. Austin Howard isn’t a serious threat to Wayne Hunter: If he was, he’d have received more than four or five reps Monday with the starters. Obviously, that could change as the week goes on — still four practices before Sunday night’s game against the Panthers — but the vibe I get is that the organization still thinks Hunter is the best right tackle on the roster. That, of course, doesn’t preclude them from importing a right tackle.
- Bart predicts career year
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Bart Scott, thought to be a goner at the start of the offseason, is back with the Jets. And back to being himself, which is to say vocal.Listen to the complete interview: In addition to being loud at practice, trash talking teammates on offense, the veteran linebacker has been outspoken about his personal goals for the season.
“I’m expecting career numbers,” Scott said Monday on ESPN New York 98.7 FM.
Scott wasn’t asked to give specifics, but in case you’re wondering, here are his career numbers in the key categories: Sacks (9.
- Tony: We missed some deep chances
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — New offensive coordinator Tony Sparano hopes to bring a vertical element to the Jets’ passing game, but that hasn’t materialized yet. In two games, they haven’t completed a pass longer than 21 yards — and that was a swing pass to RB Joe McKnight.
Sparano said there were “three or four real glaring opportunities” to throw downfield in Saturday night’s 26-3 loss to the Giants. So what happened? He said it was a combination of the quarterback not seeing the open receiver and the offensive line not providing enough time.
- Jets Release Offensive Linemen Heyer
The Jets made a roster move today as they released OT/OG Stephen Heyer. A 21 game starter for the Washington Redskins in 2009 and 2010, Heyer played with the Oakland Raiders last season appearing in 12 games, starting two. Heyer was the most experienced back-up offensive linemen on the Jets roster but it looks like [...]
- Practice report: Mixed bag on offense
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Done with Cortland, the Jets practiced Monday for the first time at their year-round facility, a 2½-hour session marked by dropped passes, sacks and almost-big plays. The practice was closed to the public.
QB Mark Sanchez, rebounding from his pick-six moment in Saturday night’s loss to the Giants, completed nine of 16 passes, with two sacks. He almost hit rookie WR Stephen Hill on a deep pass, but Hill, who beat CB Darrelle Revis, got turned around and dropped it.
- Jets Offense Is Down But Confident They’re Not Out
Florham Park, NJ- It’s still preseason, the kinks of a new offensive system are still being worked out, the receiving core has been depleted with injuries and the offensive scheme through the first two games was as vanilla as could be, but the Jets aren’t using any of these reasons as an excuse. They know they [...]
