- Rex: Media won’t dictate Tebow time
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Another day, another round of questions about Tim Tebow’s lack of involvement in the Jets’ offense.
This time, Rex Ryan didn’t get annoyed with the questions, but he made it clear he’s not going to bow to media pressure to play Tebow in the Wildcat.
“We control it,” Ryan said. “The media’s not gonna drive it and the opponent, they’re not going to have any idea what we’re going to do with them. I’m certainly not going to let them know, ‘Hey, by the way, Tebow is going to play 50 snaps this week.

- Scouting Report: An early look at Miami
Sunday’s game at Miami could be billed the “Hard Knocks” Bowl, past and present. Or maybe the Sparano Bowl, in honor of the Dolphins’ former coach and current Jets offensive coordinator.
Quick thoughts on the Dolphins:
1. The Dolphins, under new coach Joe Philbin, are 1-1 after a 35-13 thrashing of the Raiders at home. The Dolphins haven’t made the playoffs since 2008 (see: Sparano, Chad Pennington and the Wildcat), but they’re starting to become a respectable home team.

- Five Plays That Shaped The Game: Week 2
A look back at the Jets’ 27-10 loss to the Steelers, highlighting five key plays:
1. The Head Shot. With 13:51 left in the second quarter, QB Mark Sanchez roamed outside the pocket, looking downfield, and he was victimized by a helmet-to-helmet blow from Lawrence Timmons. The Steelers linebacker was penalized 15 yards, and he could get fined by the league. Sanchez insisted he wasn’t affected, but the numbers tell a different story. After the play, he completed only six of 22 passes.
- Drive of the game: Oh, no, Cro!
The decisive drive in the Jets’ 27-10 loss to the Steelers came early in the third quarter, when the Steelers padded their lead with Ben Roethlisberger’s 37-yard TD pass to Mike Wallace.
It was a five-play, 59-yard drive that included good, bad and ugly.
The bad was a 15-yard penalty on S LaRon Landry, who horse-collared Antonio Brown after an 11-yard reception. That put the Steelers at the Jets’ 31, but the Jets responded with two nice defensive plays — a pass breakup by LB David Harris and a tackle behind the line by DE Muhammad Wilkerson.
- Film study: Anatomy of a dud
After breaking down the tape of the Jets’ 27-10 loss to the Steelers, a few things jumped out:
PLENTY OF BLAME: Immediately after the game, the prevailing explanation for the utter ineptitude of the passing attack was how the wide receivers failed to handle the Steelers’ aggressive press coverage. After watching the tape, I think that was a bit overblown. A myriad of factors contributed to Mark Sanchez’s 10-for-27, 138-yard day.
I categorized his 17 incompletions into five different categories:
Off-target passes — 5
QB under pressure — 4
Drops — 3
Miscommunications between QB and receiver — 3
Pass breakup/good coverage — 2
DEEP THOUGHTS: Adhering to Tony Sparano’s vertical philosophy, Sanchez made an attempt to push the ball downfield, perhaps eschewing safer throws.
