- JETS DEFENSE: Can’t Beat Around Bush
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Wasn’t Reggie Bush labeled a bust after a few lack luster years in New Orleans? Unlike the helpless defenders he faced in college, the former number two overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft couldn’t shake the critic’s labels early in his career.
He’s too injury-prone. He’s not big enough to be [...]

- McIntyre makes most of start
Garrett McIntyre had a week to prepare for his first NFL start when the Jets learned Bryan Thomas wouldn’t be ready to play, but he made the most of it with two sacks in the loss to the Steelers.
McIntyre was a 26-year-old rookie last year, undrafted out of Fresno State. He spent two years in San Jose with the Arena Football League and then another two in Canada. He knows chances to play don’t come cheaply. Check out the story of how he came to get his first NFL start at the ripe old age of 27.
- Three-point stance: Miami Dolphins
After two weeks and a big surprise in New England on Sunday, the AFC East is up for grabs as the Jets fly to Miami for another division game in Week 3.
The story for the Dolphins this season has been Reggie Bush, who trails only Buffalo’s C.J. Spiller for the NFL lead in yards from scrimmage. Expect Miami to command the run game on both offense and defense against the Jets in this matchup. The offense ranks third in the NFL with an average of 5.

- Tebow in paradise
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Tim Tebow may have opted to come to New York but, in a lot of ways, his heart is still in Florida.
“Well, it’s Florida, so it’s fun,” Tebow said. “Playing at the stadium is fun though. I’ve had some good games in the stadium. I won a state championship and a national championship there. (I’ve) had some fun games. So yeah, it’s a memorable stadium for me.”
One of those games was last year when he was quarterback of the Broncos.
- Reggie Bush: Hard Knocks didn’t help
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Reggie Bush got plenty of screen time on Hard Knocks in the offseason, and now that the show has run its course, he can say that the additional scrutiny wasn’t necessarily a good thing.
“I don’t think it helped us,” Bush said. “It’s a great show and I think it did a great job of capturing just what it takes to be in the NFL and go through an NFL season and training camp and the business side of things and the sports side of things.
- Holmes expects to exploit Miami DBs
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — For a team that completed only 10 of 27 passes in its last game, the Jets remain a confident bunch. Santonio Holmes, for one, believes they can have a rebound performance against the Dolphins’ young secondary.

“With our skills and our speed, we should really take advantage of those guys,” Holmes said Wednesday.
The Dolphins revamped their secondary, cutting veteran S Yeremiah Bell (now with the Jets) and trading CB Vontae Davis in the preseason.
