MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:22 PM) How many starters are back from last year?
ROBJETS Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:23 PM) They had to let defensive players go too. And that's why they refused to pay Chancellor. They don't have the money
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:24 PM) Most of the Defense is back from last season.. who besides the 2nd CB do they not have?
ROBJETS Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:24 PM) I don't know how many starters. I didn't look through the whole active roster from last year to this year. But I know they let a good many starters go too
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:25 PM) Anyway we need them to win
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:26 PM) it puts us in a 4 way tie for the WC
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:26 PM) Maybe Hou can win the division
ROBJETS Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:26 PM) They had to let a corner and safety go from the defense and some dline from the starting line up. And some players on the online too
ROBJETS Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:27 PM) That's why Russel isn't getting protection and Lynch is having a down year
ROBJETS Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:28 PM) Yeah but you need to chr
ROBJETS Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:29 PM) check my list of tiebreakers we are down in division and conference games. If the Jets don't beat the Bills and win most of the conference games no playoffs
ROBJETS Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:31 PM) Plus we are down in schedule strength to everyone in the hunt for the playoffs except Houston but they have the win and tiebreaker against the Jets
ROBJETS Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:32 PM) Oh and also the Bills are below us in schedule strength but have a win against us so have tiebreaker for now
ROBJETS Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:33 PM) Chiefs have the easy schedule in the league got the rest of the season so chances of them not getting in are slim
ROBJETS Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:35 PM) Chiefs and Stelers are in the drivers seat
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:36 PM) Right but there is a lot of games to go still
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:36 PM) who knows maybe we beat Tenn NYG Dal and Buf
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:36 PM) 10-6?? Maybe
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:36 PM) 1 game at a time I agree
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:36 PM) KC and Oakland have to play each other twice
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:38 PM) Pitt Still has to play Cinn and Denver
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:39 PM) Who they may beat.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:41 PM) We just need Sea to win
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:41 PM) Game over
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:41 PM) Hawks win
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:42 PM) Well if they make the PAT
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:42 PM) My bad I thought Pitt had 0 timeouts left
ROBJETS Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:46 PM) I don't trust Denver against any good team with their backup qb in. I except the Chiefs to overtake the division. They really don't trust him either since an injured Manning is the #2 qb. He barely won last week
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:47 PM) Ben is hurt now
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:47 PM) Don't think its anything big tho
ROBJETS Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:48 PM) But Steelers losing today and if they lose against the Bengals would help
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 November 2015 - 07:55 PM) Ben has a possible concussion
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 November 2015 - 08:08 PM) And Pitt plays Indy next week
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 November 2015 - 08:09 PM) If Pittsburgh lose it help if indy lose Houston might be in 1st and have a tie breaker over indy
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 November 2015 - 08:16 PM) I just can't wait for Sunday. Me and my brother are going to the game. He's a giants fan. So somebody is going home mad
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 November 2015 - 10:46 PM) Where is frosty??.and his MIGHTY DOLPHINS
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 November 2015 - 10:58 PM) Marshall is 70 yards away from being our 1st 1000 yard receiver since cotch in 07
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 12:03 AM) f*** new England!! And gronk is hurt
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 12:04 AM) Nice to see the Pats won't have an undefeated season. That said the wheat her made the difference. Brady is accurate as heck and the snow affected the pass timing with the wr's
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 12:06 AM) Without the snow I couldn't see the Broncos winning that game. But again great to see the Pats chance at a perfect season go down the tubes
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:21 PM) Brandon Marshall is the best WR I've seen on the Jets
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:23 PM) How bad is Marcus Williams injury?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:23 PM) I like how this guy has 5 INTs in limited playing time, he reminds me of Asante Samuel
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 04:14 PM) After both losses to the Jets this year Miami fired some coaches. LOL
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 05:05 PM) Jets = Coach killers

Rex Ryan says Tim Tebow could see greater role on offense if pass protection struggles
BY Manish Mehta

CORTLAND -- The Jets gave up five sacks in their preseason-opening loss to the Bengals on Friday night. Mark Sanchez was sacked twice in series.

Rex Ryan left the door open to an intriguing possibility if the Jets’ pass protection struggles during the regular season. Could Tim Tebow, who eluded two sacks with his feet on Friday, take on a greater role in the offense if the protection doesn’t hold up? There’s little doubt that Tebow’s escapability to mask deficiencies in the pass protection.

“We’re open to anything,” Ryan said before practice on Sunday.

Ryan admitted that he didn’t plan to unveil the Wildcat with Tebow even before he got a call from Marvin Lewis asking him not to use it the day before the game.

“I let Marvin think that, but no,” Ryan said. “The Wildcat is tough to defend. Are we going to do it? Of course. At some point, we’re going to do it. But again, it’s more of the old, some people think that the wildcat’s come and gone. No, it hasn’t. If anything, it’s just the opposite.”

Ryan also revealed that he considered Nevada QB Colin Kaepernick in the 2011 draft. The 49ers selected him in the second round.

“I was really intrigued by him when he came out,” Ryan said. “Because we’re losing Brad (Smith). They drafted him before we could. But I was interested in him… So you’re seeing these guys. It’s hard to defend some of that stuff. When you have the ability to throw as well as run, it makes it tough.”

Ryan praised Tebow’s ability to run against any type of coverage.

“He ran against man coverage, he ran against zone coverage,” Ryan said about Tebow’s performance on Friday night. “That’s what he does. If you rush four, he can run on you. You can rush, six, seven,
whatever, he can go do that. But I also like the way he threw the ball.”

WR Chaz Schilens
left the preseason opener with an ankle injury, Ryan said. Schilens already had been dealing with a groin injury during camp.

Ryan said that safety Eric Smith is “day-to-day” after suffering a knee injury against the Bengals. The Daily News first reported on Saturday that Smith will miss the rest of the preseason games due to a left MCL sprain. Ryan said that the Jets will take a cautious approach with Smith, but are not considering adding a veteran safety to the roster.

Ryan singled out offensive linemen Austin Howard and Vlad Ducasse after watching the tape of the preseason opener. He was expecially pleased by Howard, who started at right tackle for Wayne Hunter in the first preseason game.

“Anybody that can play like the way he played is trying to tell you something and you got to find a way to get him out there,” Ryan said. “I don’t know about competition. You earn your playing time in this league. You got to put him out there sometime. I don’t know how many reps… I told the team, as well as he played… is he going to play tackle? Is he going to play this spot, that spot? Is he going to play defense? Because anybody that plays like that deserves to play. That’s something that I was encouraged with….. He is driving people and finishing and that’s what we’ve been talking about. I’m really encouraged by him.”

WR Santonio Holmes (ribs) and WR Jeremy Kerley (hamstring) aren’t expected to practice on Sunday. Ryan hopes that Kerley will be able to fully practice before the end of the week.

RT Wayne Hunter (lower back) will be monitored at practice on Sunday, Ryan said.

Great call. Base who your QB is off the fact you didn't address weak spots on the line.

The title is misleading, he didn't say Tebow will. He said that they are open to anything when asked the question.

The title of the article was very misleading. Typical media.

If we end up running a pot luck offensive scheme this year then we are not going to go very far. However I wouldn't push the panic button until near the end of September. During pre season you are trying out different ppl and different things. I only hope that if by substituting Tebow in certain situations we are not telegraphing our intentions. I would like to think that Tebow gives us diversity and not predictability.
