- NFL To Use Replacement Referees In Regular Season
The Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) between the NFL and Referees’ Association expired in late May but there has been little movement on a new agreement. The NFL “locked out” the regular officials using replacements during the preseason, a similar strategy, locking the players out, used by the NFL during negotiations with the Players Association last [...]
- Preview: Jets at Eagles Preseason Finale
It’s the final game of the preseason, which means a very large majority of starters will not play tonight. The last preseason is a chance for the players sitting on the roster bubble to prove that they are worthy of a roster spot, if not for the team they are suiting up for tonight than [...]
- Woody can’t get enough Tebow
It’s a good thing Woody Johnson isn’t calling the plays on offense. His “publicity stunt,” as Joe Namath puts it — Tim Tebow — would get the ball a whole lot.
The Jets’ owner, in an appearance on CNBC from the Republican National Convention Wednesday night in Tampa, was questioned about his team’s offensive struggles in the preseason. Asked if he’d like to see “more Tebow or less Tebow,” Johnson said: “I think you can never have too much Tebow.

Welcome to this week’s non-official injury report where since no one’s really playing so anyone with any kind of injury is out, I have almost nothing for this report.

- W2W4: Jets vs. Eagles on Thursday
The Jets close the preseason Thursday night in Philadelphia, where they face the Eagles in the annual Backup Bowl. With the season opener 10 days away, Rex Ryan will rest most of his regulars. Ditto, Andy Reid. Still, there are some issues that need to be examined.
Five things to watch:
1. Austin’s encore: Austin Howard is expected to be the opening-day starter at right tackle, but that doesn’t mean he gets the night off. He’s a young player — he played in four games for the Eagles in 2010 — and he needs as many reps as possible.

- Jason Smith practices, might play in Philly
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Jason Smith, run out of St. Louis after three difficult seasons, is glad to have a fresh start with the Jets.
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” the newly acquired tackle said Wednesday. “To somebody, I was beautiful.”
Well, let’s not go that far. Let’s just say the Jets think he’s more attractive than Wayne Hunter, whom they shipped to the Rams in a ballyhooed trade for backup right tackles.
“He’s five years younger and a little more athletic” than Hunter, Rex Ryan said.
