- Clyde Gates To IR; Other Moves
Several sources are reporting that the Jets have placed Clyde Gates on the injured-reserve list because of his shoulder injury. Mike Goodson was also placed on the injured-reserve list. Jets announce placing of WR Clyde Gates (shoulder) & RB Mike Goodson (knee) on IR. They've signed Josh Cribbs & WR Greg Salas (PHI p-squad) — […]
- New York Jets – Can They Break Ugly Patriots Regular Season Trend?
The 2nd match-up of the regular season against the New England Patriots has been a nightmare for the New York Jets under Rex Ryan. Can they break the trend?
- Jets Sign Josh Cribbs
The New York Jets have signed kick returner Josh Cribbs. This 30 year old Cribbs has over 10,000 kickoff return yards in his career. He is coming back from knee surgery and the Jets have been monitoring his progress. Cribbs also returned punts so it will be interesting to see if he replaces Kerley in […]

- Power Rankings: No. 20 New York Jets
A weekly examination of the Jets’ ESPN.com Power Ranking:
Preseason: 32 | Last Week: 18 | ESPN.com Power Ranking since 2002
The Jets (3-3) dropped two spots after losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers, a rather modest dip when you consider they lost a home game to a previously winless team. Evidently, the voters don’t believe the Steelers (1-4) are your typical bad team.
Except for this past Sunday, the Jets’ season is playing out in alignment with the power poll.
- NFL Power Rankings Week 7
There are only two undefeated teams left in the NFL, and they both reside in the AFC West. The Broncos and Chiefs are at the top of this week’s power rankings, but big wins for the Packers, Patriots, and Cowboys has them trending upwards. The Colts, Texans, and Jets were not so lucky. Denver Broncos […]
- Coples on LB move: A work in progress
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Quinton Coples doesn’t have much to show for his switch to outside linebacker.
Through his first four games this season, he has just has four tackles and zero sacks.
“I don’t get caught up in my stats,” Coples said Monday. “At the end of the day, I play for my team and make sure I’m doing my responsibilities to make sure we get a win. Outside of that, the stats will come.”
Since returning from a hairline fracture in his right ankle, Coples has been off to a slow start.
- Jets’ Antonio Cromartie gets picked on
Because the New York Jets aren’t accustomed to uneven cornerback play, the recent hiccups by Antonio Cromartie have been glaring.
Cromartie has allowed three touchdown passes, including the 55-yarder to Emmanuel Sanders in Sunday’s loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Cromartie caught a break earlier in the game, when Antonio Brown dropped a would-be touchdown on him.
Rex Ryan defended Cromartie, claiming, “I think he’s played really well.” Injuries could be contributing to Cromartie’s inconsistency.
- Rex upset with Dungy comment?
On Monday, a miffed Rex Ryan made a cryptic remark about the “so-called experts” who second-guessed his brother’s strategy on the final play of the New England Patriots’ last second-win Sunday in Foxborough. His brother, of course, is New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan.
The Jets’ coach didn’t name names, but it’s quite possible he was referring to former Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy, a studio analyst on NBC’s “Football Night in America.

- Green Day: Rex pleads with fans for help
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Rex Ryan made a guarantee for Sunday against the New England Patriots.
Issuing a challenge to New York Jets fans, Ryan said Monday they will win the game if the fans can re-create the raucous stadium atmosphere from Sept. 20, 2009. That day, the Jets hit Tom Brady so hard and so often that they beat the stuffing out of his UGG boots — that is, if he wore them in those days.
“If you make it like that,” Ryan said during his weekly spot on ESPN New York 98.
- Underworked Ivory stays patient — for now
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Running back Chris Ivory said he’s not unhappy with his role — yet — but he acknowledged Monday he’s not getting the ball as much as he expected.
“Honestly, I feel like it’s been a little bit conservative,” he said. “Hopefully, we get some things going. But it hasn’t been as many [carries] as I thought.”
Ivory has 34 carries in five games (he missed one game with a hamstring injury), 53 fewer carries than Bilal Powell. Ivory said the coaches told him he’s the short-yardage back, yet he wasn’t used Sunday on a third-and-1 from the Pittsburgh Steelers 2-yard line.
- Jets’ Gates has MRI; no word on Wilson
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Here’s a brief update on Jets players with injuries worth monitoring as the team prepares for an important division showdown against the Patriots on Sunday:
” RB Mike Goodson: Goodson tweeted he tore his ACL and MCL in his left knee, which ends his season. You can read the full story here.
” WR Clyde Gates: Gates left Sunday’s game with a left shoulder injury and underwent an MRI on Monday. He did not know the results of the MRI when he met with the media.
- Smith’s goal: Play mistake-free vs. Pats
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — For New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith to beat the New England Patriots on Sunday, he hopes to do something he’s struggled to accomplish this year: record a turnover-free game.
“Going up against a team like this, a quarterback like Tom [Brady], you’ve got to play mistake-free ball,” Smith said. “You still got to be aggressive and still want to move the chains and have explosive plays. But you have to play mistake-free because you give that team too many opportunities and they can capitalize.
