- Re-visiting nightmare AFC title game
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — As much as it pains them, the Jets will study the tape from the previous meeting against the Steelers — yes, the 2010 AFC Championship Game.
“You absolutely go back and see what they had success against you with,” Rex Ryan said Monday.
Anybody reading this knows the Jets lost, 24-19, after falling behind at halftime, 24-0. After stunning the Patriots in the AFC divisional round, the Jets thought it was their time, but they came out pancake flat and got pushed around by the Steelers.
- Cotchery: It’s ‘weird’ to face Jets
Ex-Jet Jerricho Cotchery’s going to face Gang Green for the first time on Sunday.
And it’s going to be weird.
“Every week when we start taking our notes on opposing defenses, I write the team’s name that we’re playing at the top of my page. This week I was writing the Jets, so it was a little weird,” Cotchery said with a laugh.
Cotchery spent his first seven seasons with the Jets, establishing himself as a sure-handed target and a veteran presence in the locker room.
- Darrelle Revis Cleared For Physical Activity
According to ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini cornerback Darrelle Revis has been cleared for physical activity after suffering a “mild” concussion in Sunday’s game against the Bills: Revis cleared for physical activity, but still won’t practice today. Nevertheless, a good sign for Sunday. #Jets — Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) September 12, 2012 This is a positive [...]

- Injury report: Back pain ruins Kerley’s day
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — It was a good news, bad news kind of morning for Jeremy Kerley.
The Jets wideout was named AFC special teams player of the week on Wednesday morning for his breakout performance against Buffalo. But he also woke up with a sore back and likely will not practice on Wednesday.
“Hopefully, he’ll feel better tomorrow,” Rex Ryan said.
Kerley scored on a 68-yard punt return in New York’s win over Buffalo, the Jets’ first punt-return touchdown since Santana Moss in 2002.
- SANTONIO HOLMES: Third & Long
ROSLYN HEIGHTS, N.Y. — Sixteen-year-old Jahquie Martin slowly made his way up to the microphone, clutching a few pieces of loose leaf in his right hand. Adjusting the mic with his free hand, Martin cautiously cleared his throat before speaking.
He began like any normal high school teenager would – with a tense lump in his [...]

The Jets have announced via Twitter that they have signed WR Stanley Arukwe to the practice squad and have released WR Royce Pollard from the practice squad.
- Scouting report: Early look at Steelers
A quick look at Sunday’s opponent, the Steelers:
1. They opened with a 31-19 loss to the Broncos on the road on Sunday night — a tough spot for the Steelers, considering the emotion and drama of Peyton Manning’s return. On Sunday, it’s the Steelers’ home opener, and they’ve won nine straight home openers. They haven’t started 0-2 since 2002, one of only three teams with no 0-2 starts in that span.
2. They face the Jets for the first time since the 2010 AFC Championship Game — a 24-19 Steelers win.
- Namath: Tebow couldn’t be Jets’ No. 1
Joe Namath was quick to praise Tim Tebow for his work ethic and sincerity.
But if Jets starting quarterback Mark Sanchez ever were to get injured, Namath doesn’t think Tebow could step in and become the New York Jets’ No. 1.
“God forbid something happens to Sanchez. See, this is where I’m confused. I don’t think the second guy really is Tebow,” Namath told ESPNNewYork.com on Tuesday night.
Asked why he believes third-stringer Greg McElroy would be a better fit to take the majority of snaps if Sanchez got hurt, Namath said, “Because you’re not gonna win consistently with the Wildcat offense unless Tim passes a lot better, maybe a little quicker.
- Playing-time breakdown: Defense
A look at how the Jets divided the playing time on defense in Sunday’s win over the Bills (based on 63 snaps):
Muhammad Wilkerson — 53
Quinton Coples — 32
Kenrick Ellis — 30
Mike DeVito — 27
Marcus Dixon — 16.
David Harris — 63
Calvin Pace — 60
Bart Scott — 54
Aaron Maybin — 16
Garrett McIntyre — 15
Josh Mauga — 11
Bryan Thomas — 9
Yeremiah Bell — 63
LaRon Landry — 63
Antonio Cromartie — 59
Kyle Wilson — 54
Darrelle Revis — 50
Isaiah Trufant — 9
Ellis Lankster — 9
Analysis: The blowout, plus injuries to Thomas and Revis, allowed some of the backups to get more playing time than expected .
- Jets Insider: Debunking Sanchez myth
Mark Sanchez was afforded terrific pass protection Sunday and he responded with arguably the best regular-season performance of his career. So, naturally, Rex Ryan said Monday, “I think when he has time to throw the football, he can be as good as anybody.”
Actually, that’s not always true.
This may surprise some folks who believe the offensive line was Public Enemy No. 1 last season, but Sanchez was actually one of the better protected quarterbacks in 2011 — and yet he still had 18 interceptions.
- Jets waive WR Turner
In a somewhat surprising move, the Jets waived WR Patrick Turner. The team didn’t announce a corresponding move, leaving the roster at 52.
The Jets have six receivers, so they evidently felt Turner was expendable for this week. There is a good chance he re-signs with the team — if he clears waivers. It’s possible they want to sign someone from the practice squad who could help this week against the Steelers.
OLB Ricky Sapp was re-signed to the practice squad.
- Jets Waive WR Turner, Cut DB Lewis & Sign LB Sapp
Couple of moves were done today by the Jets. First, they have waived WR Patrick Turner and secondly they cut DB LeQuan Lewis from the practice squad and have replaced him by signing LB Ricky Sapp to the practice squad.
