Jets Prepare to Tackle ‘Orange Crush’ Dolphins

Posted by Randy Lange on September 26, 2010 – 7:43 pm

The festivities are just getting started at Sun Life Stadium in Miami tonight. And the Jets will be doing their best to rain on the Miami parade at the stadium formerly known as Joe Robbie, Pro Player, Dolphins, Dolphin and Land Shark.

Reports are true that the ‘Fins will be wearing their orange jerseys for only the fourth time in team history. The official reason is due to the festive atmosphere are enthusiasm associated with a primetime football game in South Florida. They’ve won their previous three games in orange, including Week 5’s Monday night game last year over the Jets, 30-25.

The Jets wore their white jerseys with green pants last year but this time they’re in all white, and that could be a good omen for the visitors from the north. They’ve won five of their last six road games in white/white, losing only last year’s 10th game at New England.

The Jets have just come out onto the Sun Life turf, and that includes two players of special note. One is LB Jason Taylor, who is playing his first game at this stadium as an opponent after spending 12 of his first 13 NFL seasons calling this place home and bedeviling opposing offenses and sacking opposing QBs, many of them dressed in Jets uniforms.

As for WR Braylon Edwards, the Jets announced about an hour ago that Edwards, arrested for DUI in New York City early last Tuesday morning, would be benched for the first quarter of tonight’s game. But he is in his usual uniform, No. 17, his beard has been trimmed, and he is expected to be ready to roll with the start of the second quarter.

GM Mike Tannenbaum issued the following statement before the game: “We’ve made our disappointment clear to Braylon. Now he must deal with the consequences of his actions as the legal process runs its course, and the league will determine the appropriate discipline under the guidelines of the collective bargaining agreement.”

Two perhaps small, perhaps not, personnel moves have been made recently by each team involving a player formerly with the other team.

The Jets announced Saturday that WR Patrick Turner has been signed from their practice squad, and in fact will be wearing uniform No. 88 and be available to contribute to the wideout corps. The Jets acquired Turner on waivers after the Dolphins cut the first-year player, who played college ball with Mark Sanchez at Southern Cal.

And the Dolphins, most assuredly not in response to the Jets’ maneuverings with Turner, announced today the signing of tackle Patrick Brown, who was waived by the Jets on Thursday. But Brown will not be active for the Orange Crush tonight.

The Jets’ inactive list has three injured players, CB Darrelle Revis, LB Calvin Pace and OL Wayne Hunter, plus RB Joe McKnight, LB Kenwin Cummings, TE Jeff Cumberland and DT Marcus  Dixon. QB Kellen Clemens has been designated the third QB.

On the Dolphins’ IA list besides Brown are LB Channing Crowder (groin), as well as WR Marlon Moore, LB Ikaika Alama-Francis, G John Jerry, TE Mickey Shuler (yes, the son of the former Jets TE of the same name) and first-round DE Jared Odrick. Tyler Thigpen is the third QB.

Referee

Jerome Boger is the referee for his seventh Jets regular- or postseason game. Boger’s last two games were most memorable for Jets fans — the win over Carolina at home last year, which began the Jets’ streak of seven wins in eight games heading into the AFC Championship Game, and the AFC Divisional Round Game at San Diego, the last victory in that stretch leading to Indianapolis.

    This was a tremendous game to win, frustrating as it was at times. We made mistakes, had some bad penalties, and don’t ask me what Schotty was thinking with that terribly-timed Wildcat with Greene, which killed our offense just when we needed to pile it on. But to hold on and win today with key players out, with the Edwards distraction during the week, with Mangold and Taylor playing hurt, against a very tough team on their turf with difficult weather conditions speaks very well to the growing maturity of our team. Sanchez took charge of the game early, had very few bad throws, came up with the big drive when we needed it, and will be among the league-leading QBs tomorrow based on today’s game. And while it was horrifying to see the Fish march downfield like that in three plays at the end, I have to believe it wouldn’t have been so easy with a healthy Pace and Revis out there. Now let’s just not let up and blow it against the Bills, especially with the Vikes and Broncos coming right after that. P.S. Cotchery still doesn’t seem to be getting open but watching the Jets use Edwards in the right way makes one drool at the thought of Holmes in this lineup. Cotchery will do better in the slot role when Holmes and Edwards are in.
