- Rex’s transparent motivational ploy
There is one reason, and one reason only, why Rex Ryan decided to tell the world Friday that he will wait until Darrelle Revis’ knee surgery is performed before placing him on season-ending injured reserve:
It’s a message to his team, his way of saying he still believes the Jets are good enough to play into February. Clever move by Ryan. It’s not quite a Super Bowl guarantee (that was the old Rex), but he’s letting everyone know he’s thinking about the Super Bowl.

Flash back to New York Jets running back Joe McKnight’s high school days, playing on the other side of the ball as a defensive back.
- Turn On The Jets NFL Week 4 Best Bets
Week 3 record: 0-3-0 Season record: 3-5-1 I’m just going to go ahead and do what everybody else did who had a bad week last week and blame it on the replacement refs. Speaking of replacement refs, on Thursday morning after the league struck the deal to bring back the real refs, I happened to [...]

Y’all gonna make me lose my mind, that’s what the Jets do to us. Courtney Aurillo is joined by Phil Sullivan on the podcast this week. Even though the Jets record stands at 2 and 1, there is plenty to lose your mind about. Darrelle Revis is gone, as are the replacement ref’s but the [...]

- W2W4: Jets vs. 49ers
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — The Jets begin Week 4 atop the AFC East. Funny, but they don’t seem like a first-place team. They played a sloppy game last week, they lost their best player and now they get the 49ers (2-1), one of the most talented teams in the league. A victory would say a lot about the Jets’ resolve.
Basically, the 49ers are what the Jets (2-1) aspire to be — a Ground-and-Pound team that controls the ball, makes the quarterback a game manager and plays great defense and special teams.
- Turn On The Jets Week 4 Fantasy Football Preview
It has only been three weeks of fantasy football so far, and I totally understand your natural reactions to your team’s start. If you’re 3-0, you think the good times will never end, while if you’re 0-3, you’re cursing Evan Silva and the other “experts” who insisted you draft guys like Ryan Mathews and Cam [...]
- Help Us Obi Wan Kellobi, You’re Our Only (TE) Hope.
As if we Jets fans don’t have enough in the Land of Uncertainty to surround oursleves with on a daily basis, we’ve had another dent put into the body of hope that hasn’t quite banged itself out just yet. I’m speaking only for some of us because the general perception of this player seems to [...]
- QUINTON COPLES: Budding Rookie Ready to Blossom
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Quinton Coples is a weed. And that’s no knock on the sixteenth overall draft pick either. Weeds, like the dandelion, sprout fast — setting up roots and, if not uprooted, continues to rapidly grow in strength and size.
Much like weeds, Coples was not welcomed to many Jets fans’ gardens — instead [...]
- Sparano defends Tebow usage
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Despite a lack of productivity by Tim Tebow this past Sunday against the Dolphins, offensive coordinator Tony Sparano said Thursday there were some positives that came out of his Tebow usage.
Sparano noted that the Dolphins burned a timeout when they saw Tebow and QB Mark Sanchez on the field at the same time, with Tebow lined up behind center in shotgun and Sanchez flanked to his side.
“I think timeouts are golden,” Sparano said.
- New York Jets Fact Or False: Week 4 Edition
As we enter the final week of the first quarter of the 2012 NFL season, we still aren’t necessarily sure who this New York Jets team is just yet. For a team striving to be built primarily through strong defense and a ground and pound offensive philosophy, the 2012 Jets have been anything but that. [...]
- Jets glad to have regular officials back
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Rex Ryan declined to comment on the end of the lockout, except to say his mind wasn’t focused on the officiating situation, but his players and coaches offered their thoughts on the return of the regular officials.
RG Brandon Moore, member of the NFLPA executive committee: “I’m glad it got settled and I’m ready to move on. I’m done talking about the refs.”
S LaRon Landry: “I don’t really get involved in all the calls. They say the refs we had before changed the game a little, but now we’ve got our big dogs back, the real zebras.

- Injury report: Keller likely to play
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Rex Ryan tipped his hand for Sunday’s game against the 49ers, saying that he expected TE Dustin Keller (hamstring) to be back, but didn’t think WR Stephen Hill (hamstring) would be ready to play.
Left guard Matt Slauson showed up on the injury report after getting treatment on his knee, but practiced fully. Ryan said S LaRon Landry would be listed as not practicing just as part of his routine with a heel problem, but that he will play.

- Notes: Rex loves tweaking Patriots
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — On Wednesday, Rex Ryan said the 49ers’ Vernon Davis is the premier tight end in football.” A lot of folks up in New England will take umbrage with that remark because they think Rob Gronkowski is the greatest tight end since Mike Ditka.
“You know I had to get a shot in at a Patriot,” Ryan said Thursday, laughing.
Turning diplomatic, Ryan said Davis is the No. 1 tight end this week, and that Gronkowski will be No. 1 in three weeks when they face the Patriots.
