- Revis Suffers “Mild” Concussion Against Buffalo; May Not Play Against Steelers
According to the New York Daily News “All-Pro” Cornerback Darrelle Revis suffered a “mild” concussion late in the Jets 48-28 victory over the Buffalo Bills: Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis suffered a mild concussion in the second half of Sunday’s season-opening win over the Buffalo Bills, a team spokesman announced Monday morning. The injury occurred on [...]
- LATE EDITION: Morning After Report
Mark Sanchez is a lot of things — former first-round pick, fourth-year starter, leader, scapegoat — but a liar he is not.
Like anyone starting a new year, you always to start off with a bang. Dominating in all three phases of the game with 48 points, it’s safe to say the Jets exploded [...]
- The Monday After Drill
When you are a football player, the only place you really want to be is on the field. Offseason contract extensions, backup quarterback signings, and even circus tent comparisons all finally go away when you step into that huddle for the first time in September. Nobody in the NFL wanted to get on that field [...]

- Will Revis miss Week 2 vs. Steelers?
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan confirmed what many suspected on Monday: Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis suffered a concussion in the second half in their 48-28 win over the Buffalo Bills.
“He seems to be feeling good, but whatever those (baseline test) scores are, apparently that’s low,” Ryan said, according to ESPNNewYork.com. “I’ll lean on the doctors and trainers. We’ll see how he progresses during the week.”
By the sheer injury alone, Revis’ status is in doubt for next Sunday’s big game against the Pittsburgh Steelers (0-1).

- Hill loses lunch, wins praise
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — That was a sick performance by Stephen Hill in his first NFL game. And we do mean sick.
Turns out that the rookie wide receiver, when he wasn’t catching passes and scoring touchdowns, was puking on the bench. Hill apparently played the game with a bit of a bug.
“He got sick a couple of times on the sideline,” Rex Ryan said Monday. “He showed that toughness, which you knew he had.”
Hill’s performance came out of nowhere. After a shaky preseason in which he dropped three passes, the second-round pick from Georgia Tech caught five passes for 89 yards and two touchdowns.
- A Little Bit of Rain on the Parade
Florham Park, N.J.- Yesterday’s thumping of the Bills was a glorious thing for the Jets, their head coach and of course their fans. After suffering through a disappointing 8-8 season where the wheels appeared to completely tear off the Jets wagon, an offseason of sensationalized pipe dreams (the supposed fix being in for Tim Tebow [...]
- Drive of the Game
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — For so many reasons, the Jets’ second drive on Sunday proved to be a pivotal one for both the team and for quarterback Mark Sanchez.
After throwing an interception on his first drive, bringing back memories of 2011, Sanchez needed to rebound on the second drive. He hadn’t played well in the preseason and this seemed to be a continuation. Fans likely would start screaming for backup Tim Tebow if the offense continued to struggle to score touchdowns.

Was Mark Sanchez really that good or were the Bills just that bad?
The answer might be the latter.
While Sanchez posted a career-best 97.1 QBR, it’s the sixth time the Bills have allowed any opposing quarterback to score above 90 since the start of last year, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Last year, the Bills allowed Tony Romo to register the highest QBR for any game in the 2011 season. Even Matt Moore lit up the Bills.
Sanchez is now 6-1 against the Bills, but just 22-19 against the rest of the league.
- Inside the game: Tebow the table setter
A few observations on the game after breaking down the tape:
Tim Tebow didn’t have the most productive day on offense, but he served as a set-up man for QB Mark Sanchez. In essence, the trend was this: Run out of the Tebow package, pass with Sanchez. Over and over and over. That’s what Tony Sparano showed us in the highly-anticipated debut of the Wildcat.
Let me explain: The first six times Sanchez returned to quarterback after a Tebow play, he passed — and he passed successfully.
- New York Jets’ scoring problem solved?
The New York Jets shocked the world (and western New York) yesterday by scoring 48 points against the Buffalo Bills. It was the most points the Jets have scored since they hung 56 on Arizona in 2008. Does this mean the Jets have solved all their offensive problems? Or was it just one good game, soon to be forgotten? Do teams that score a lot of points in Week 1 continue to score throughout the year?
Between 2000 and 2011, 65 teams scored 30 or more points in Week 1, led by the 49 points scored by the 2002 Miami Dolphins and 2003 San Francisco 49ers.

- WOW, talking about serving up some Buffalo meat!
In my article last week, I mentioned that the Jets should win and the Jets will be a very good team if the Offensive line protects (check) and Stephen Hill makes a difference (check). It’s only one game and teams will adjust, however, I love what I saw on offense and Sparano’s creativity. It’s great to have a coach that actually gets it!

- Three up, three down
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Examining some positives and negatives from the Jets’ 48-28 win over the Bills:
Mark Sanchez: After a summer of proclaiming himself the leader of the offense, Sanchez went out and proved it, which is always better than talking it. Except for an early hiccup, he didn’t look rattled at all by Tebow-mania. Take that, Santonio.
Austin Howard: The offense started out by sliding protection to Howard, giving him help against DE Mario Williams.
