- Coach’s big decision: How to cover Vernon?
In 2006, the Jets had TE Vernon Davis rated very highly on their draft board. In fact, he was in the conversation before they decided to use the fourth overall pick on LT D’Brickashaw Ferguson. On Sunday, they have to figure out a way to defend him. He’s 6-foot-3, 250 pounds with 4.4 speed.
Davis has 13 receptions for 169 yards and four touchdowns, tied for the league lead.

- Revis’ replacements must learn ‘to eat meat’
Defensive backs coach Dennis Thurman didn’t see the injury to Darrelle Revis, but he had a sinking feeling when his star quarterback didn’t get back on the field Sunday after tearing his ACL.
“The first thing that most people do is they get emotional,” Thurman said. “You can’t get emotional, it’s part of the game, it happens. Great players get injured and when they do, if you’re overly emotional about it, then you won’t prepare yourself the right way or you won’t get your players prepared to play.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Rex Ryan was not ready to declare tight end Dustin Keller ready for action Sunday when the Jets host San Francisco at MetLife Stadium.
