- MORNING AFTER REPORT: The Good, Bad & Ugly
The good news is the New York Jets showed progress on both sides of the ball last night. The bad news was the same old story for both sides of the ball: third-down efficiency, stopping/using the rushing attack and overall inconsistencies.
The 23-17 loss to the undefeated Houston Texans could be viewed as a moral victory [...]
- Jets sign Muir, place Mauga on IR
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — The Jets have signed defensive tackle Daniel Muir and placed linebacker Josh Mauga on injured reserve with a torn pectoral muscle. Muir will be needed to produce right away — the team is thin at the defensive tackle spot as Sione Po’uha and Kenrick Ellis battle injuries.
Muir, 29, signed with the Packers in 2007 after not being drafted out of Kent State. Muir later played for the Colts from 2008-11, starting 26 games during that time.
- Keller, Hill to return to practice
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Good news for the Jets’ struggling offense: TE Dustin Keller and WR Stephen Hill, both battling hamstring injuries, are slated to return to practice Wednesday. They will be limited, but it’s a step toward returning to game action.
Keller has a better chance than Hill of playing Sunday against the Colts, according to Rex Ryan, who reiterated what he said Tuesday: He expects Keller to be back out there after missing four games.

- Mark’s joy of six? Don’t think so
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Two days ago, the Jets played in the 666th Monday Night Football game, naturally fueling Satanic references. Well, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

- Post Game Drill
In the aftermath of a disappointing 23-17 loss to the Houston Texans, a game the Jets showed infinitely more heart than they did a week earlier, I want to attempt to point out some positives we as fans can draw. The Jets sit at 2-3 but are certainly in no way playing for draft position [...]

- Film study: Tebow package gets messy
The Jets were right: The Wildcat is causing a lot of confusion — for them, not the opponent.
They wasted two timeouts and hurried another play — all in the fourth quarter of Monday night’s 23-17 loss to the Texans — and the common denominator was … you guessed it, the Tim Tebow package.
The first two hiccups came after long gainers. After a 36-yard completion, OC Tony Sparano wanted to change on the fly with the ball at the Houston 16 with 13:17 remaining.
- A cheap shot by Slauson?
Matt Slauson might not want to take a trip to Houston anytime soon. The Jets’ guard is taking a lot of heat for his cut-block on Texans LB Brian Cushing, which resulted in a torn ACL for the team’s defensive MVP. The Texans confirmed the knee injury Tuesday, meaning Cushing is lost for the season — a devastating blow.
It happened in the second quarter of the Texans’ 23-17 win Monday night at MetLife Stadium. On a run off right tackle, Slauson dived at Cushing’s lower legs from behind.

- LB Mauga out for the season
The Jets lost a key backup and core special-teams player Tuesday with the news that Josh Mauga will miss the remainder of the season with a torn pectoral muscle, according to a league source.
Mauga, injured late in Monday night’s 23-17 loss to the Texans, became the third player in the last three games to suffer a season-ending injury. He joined CB Darrelle Revis (knee) and WR Santonio Holmes (foot) on that list.
In five games, Mauga played in 50 defensive snaps (14 percent of the team’s total).
