Nothing but Jets
New York Jets news, commentary and insider info from beat writer Kimberley A. Martin.
It did not go unnoticed that starting left guard Matt Slauson was replaced by third-year backup Vladimir Ducasse for several plays of the Jets’ 27-10 loss Sunday in Pittsburgh. Ever since he was drafted as a second-round project, the 6-5, 325-pound Ducasse has been viewed as a candidate for the “bust” label.
During training camp, there was a so-called “competition” between Ducasse (pictured)...Read more »
Of all the third-down plays that hurt the Jets in their 27-10 loss at Pittsburgh – and there were plenty – the worst was the 37-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Mike Wallace on third-and-16 for a 20-10 third-quarter lead. Wallace made a tough catch at the back of the end zone against Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie.

Only time will tell if the Jets will be without Darrelle Revis for a second straight game.
Rex Ryan didn’t have a status update on his All Pro cornerback, who did not fly to Pittsburgh this past weekend because of a concussion.
“I don’t think you can assume that” he’ll play, the coach said of Revis, who was accidentally kicked in the head by teammate Bart Scott during the Jets’ Week...Read more »
Rex Ryan reiterated what he’s said all offseason about Tim Tebow’s quarterbacking ability.
“I believe Tim can pass.”
Just not on second-and-16, apparently.
The Jets coach grew more and more agitated as the Tebow questions kept piling up – mainly, why he and offensive coordinator Tony Sparano chose to pull their Wildcat wonder off the field after his 22-yard run – the longest single...Read more »
*** Updated at 5:58 p.m.***
Greene returned to start the third quarter. (That sound you hear? Jets fans sighing with relief.)
The Jets began Sunday's game against the Steelers without their best cornerback.
And shortly after the first quarter came to a close, they were without their feature running back.
Shonn Greene left the game at the 12:56-mark of the second quarter after...Read more »
Tim Tebow dismissed a report that he would seek a trade from the Jets this offseason if he’s not used more the final 15 games. Tebow took nine snaps in last Sunday’s 48-28 win over the Bills. He carried the ball five times for 11 yards and didn’t attempt a pass. But the Jets’ offense was rolling with Mark Sanchez completing 19 of 27 passes for 266 yards and three touchdowns. Tebow tried to make...Read more »
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – Darrelle Revis will not play in Sunday's road game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Jets head coach Rex Ryan said after practice Friday.
Revis had worked out with the defensive backs and then participated in team drills earlier Friday, but his status was in doubt until this afternoon.
Revis suffered a concussion in last Sunday’s win over the Bills. He had been running...Read more »
As an offensive coordinator, is there any added motivation when facing a legendary defensive mind like Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau? “I have great respect or coach LeBeau. He’s been at it for a long time and he’s got some outstanding, outstanding defenses. He’s one of those guys that’s a pain in the neck to prepare for. They do what they do and that’s a credit to them, to be able to...Read more »

If it were up to Darrelle Revis, he'd play with a broken leg.
It's the competitive fire that burns within that refuses to miss out on any action -- even if it just happens to be a Week 2 matchup.
The Jets star cornerback -- who happens to also be their best player -- still has yet to be cleared to play for Sunday's showdown with the Steelers. But in his first interview with the media...Read more »
