The TOJ Staff discusses which New York Jets have impressed and disappointed the most through two games
- Aqib Talib: Nick Mangold hit not dirty
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib said Wednesday that he didn’t have an issue with the low tackle by Jets center Nick Mangold that sparked a melee at the end of Thursday’s 13-10 New England win.
“I thought he kind of dove a little early. He started to dive when I was in bounds and I kind of went out of bounds at the end of his dive. I didn’t see it as dirty,” Talib told ESPN. “I haven’t seen it too many times, but I’m good. I ain’t worried about it.
- Quinton Coples back in positional drills
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Jets outside linebacker Quinton Coples (ankle) participated in positional drills during the portion of practice open to the media Wednesday.
This activity is the most he’s done since suffering a hairline fracture to his right ankle Aug. 17. He did work off to the side on Monday.
Coples’ return could be a good sign for Sunday’s game against Buffalo, although we’ll get a better idea of his status when the official injury report is released Thursday.
- QB Watch: Jets’ Geno Smith
A weekly analysis of the New York Jets’ quarterback play.
Rewind: Geno Smith would rather not rewind last week’s game, but we will. Smith, trying to become the first rookie quarterback to beat a Bill Belichick-coached team in Foxborough, was decent through three quarters. But that’s never good enough to beat a team like the Patriots. Eventually, Smith cracked, throwing three interceptions in the fourth quarter. We predicted at least two turnovers — an interceptions and a strip sack.
- ESPN Mag: Jets worst franchise in NFL
It isn’t easy being green.
In the latest issue of ESPN The Magazine — the annual “Franchise” issue — the Jets are rated as the worst franchise in the NFL and 121st out of 122 teams in the major sports. The ratings are based on several criteria — fan relations, affordability, bang for the buck, stadium experience, players, ownership, title track and coaching. In case you’re wondering, the Sacramento Kings finished 122nd.
There seems to be an anti-New York bias, as the Giants (66), Rangers (76), Yankees (87) and Knicks (102) all rank in the bottom half of the standings.

- Green Day: Geno vs. old nemesis
A morning briefing on news and goings on around the Jets:
Geno Smith enjoyed a terrific college career at West Virginia, but he struggled mightily against one school in particular — Syracuse, coached by Doug Marrone. Yes, it’s the same Doug Marrone who coaches the Buffalo Bills, whom the Jets face Sunday.
Marrone isn’t a defensive coach, but you can bet he’ll be sharing his thoughts on Smith with his defensive coordinator, Mike Pettine. Marrone’s teams were 3-0 against Smith, forcing him into some of his worst days as a collegian.

With Week 2 in the books, teams began to separate themselves a little more. The Dolphins have gritted out two tough road wins, while the Redskins look lost, sitting at 0-2 after going down big in the first half.

- Is Revis longing for Rex and his system?
So Darrelle Revis reportedly is unhappy with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Two reactions from a New York perspective: Who cares? What did he expect?
The former New York Jets star was traded to the Bucs last April because his New York-based agents, serving as the matchmakers, convinced the Bucs to pay Revis what the Jets refused to spend — $16 million per year. Revis was blinded by the money, overlooking other important factors — the coach and the defensive system.
