Jets Set Out on their Mile High Climb

Posted by Eric Allen on October 15, 2010 – 4:13 pm

Just before the New York Jets shipped out to Denver on Friday afternoon, head coach Rex Ryan addressed the media about his team’s impending tilt with the Broncos. Darrelle Revis’ strained hamstring dominated the headlines this week and the star corner, who was limited in practice on Friday, was listed as questionable before the buses departed for the airport.

“He’s either healthy enough to play or he’s not,” Ryan said. “Be smart and all that stuff. I want to see how he makes the trip to Denver, we’ll have a light practice and that stuff and then we’ll go from there… I’ve been impressed with the way he’s looked the past couple days. We’ll see what happens when we get out there. ”

While Revis hopes to be at full speed Sunday, he reportedly was ticketed for speeding and careless driving on his way to work this morning.

“When I was aware of it he was late to a team meeting,” Ryan said. “He told me about how he got the ticket all that kind of stuff. We can all take notice — obviously you have to slow down. He was running late and all that. That’s not an excuse, you’d hate see him or anybody be careless where you put somebody else at risk or put yourself at risk. That’s a reminder for all of us.”

Everyone else on the injury report throughout the week was listed as probable and fully participated in practiced. This includes linebacker Calvin Pace, who played his first game of the season in Monday night’s win over the Minnesota Vikings after breaking his foot in the third preseason game. Ryan expects those listed as probable to play and will need every man on the active roster against a Broncos club that will have a home field advantage in the high altitude in Denver.

In an attempt to combat both the altitude and the two hour-time change, the Jets left a day early for Colorado and will hold a walk through on a high school field on Saturday before their 4:05 Sunday kickoff. In the game, the Broncos will certainly look to throw the ball, as quarterback Kyle Orton already has more drop backs than any quarterback in the NFL, whereas the Jets have more balance and are the NFL’s No. 1 ranked rushing team.

“If we’re dehydrating our running backs, I’ll take it,” Ryan said. “I just like that physical nature, running the ball.”

Ryan expects the Broncos to put eight or nine defenders in the box to combat the Jets’ one-two punch of LaDainian Tomlinson and Shonn Greene. However, the Green and White know that these same Broncos allowed the Baltimore Ravens to rush for 233 yards and four touchdowns on 47 carries in Week 5. Needless to say, after Mark Sanchez threw the ball a career high 44 times last week against the Vikings, the Ground and Pound figures to be back in style.

    Yes, they’ll try to stack the box if we run a lot at first, but they’ll have trouble covering the pass if they try to stack the box all day. I can’t wait to see our passing game again in something other than a downpour. And scjoe, was it you who said the Vikes didn’t drop any balls? I saw at least two drops in the 4th quarter alone, so you’ll never convince me it wasn’t hard to catch the ball that night.(Not to mention having struggled many times to catch the ball in the rain myself.)

    By the way, Row, congratulations, Alexander’s been called up on the Rams to replace the injured Clayton. After four knee ops and all he’s been through, it would be great to see him do well. But I must add that I think you can see, in Alexander’s story, how hard it is not only to make an NFL team but to make it onto the Jets. The guy’s struggling to get a spot on the team with the lowest-rated QB in the league while we’re agonizing over things like how to get the ball equally to J-Co, Edwards, and Holmes. Oh well, at least there aren’t so many posts anymore saying what a disaster it was to get rid of TJ, Leon, Feely, Faneca, Woodhead…

    The way LT’s playing, I’ll take him over TJ any day of the week. Trading Leon let us get a younger, more versatile RB and will let Shonn Greene prosper like he should. We wouldn’t have JT if we didn’t deal out Jay (though I still feel he could have gotten a raise), Faneca…yeah wasn’t he part of the reason Sanchez was getting roughed up? I can’t really say much about Danny Woodhead, didn’t really see much of him but…looks like our Jets are doing just fine.

    I still say Leon was the man to keep, if we had LT, Leon and Shonn… c’mon our running game would be unstoppable! Jets Fan I know your feeling yourself over there but calm down bro!!!lolololololololol

    If the stack 8 or 9 in the box they will get burned be time.If they drop back in coverage,our 1;2; punch it better then the ravans!I’d love to see some deep balls. they been close the last few games.It’s only a matter of time!go jets.on a another note who ever we let go,talented as they may have been;we’ve held on to better personal.It seems MR T. and rex used hardknocks to deal those guys.

    This game will be no cake walk (thank you DR) Denver can move the ball through the air, and so far, that has been the Jets weak spot (thank you DR) If they stack the box, which I think will be a mistake, they can be beat with the short to intermediate passing game. I think when that happens and they adjust, the ground and pound will then put them away. Final Jets 27 Denver 13

    Big O, I think the Seahawks getting Lynch shows that they’re not expecting much out of Leon out of the backfield this year, since Forsett and Lynch, two great backs, will now play ahead of him. And so it looks to me like Carroll was willing to give Leon the whole year to prove he can play (he also took a brief shot on White) but we weren’t, or at least we weren’t for more than $1.76 mil with Leon having to work his way back in. If we had Leon now, he’d be doing exactly what he is on SEA, returning kicks (but we have Smith for that) and rarely carrying the ball. Once McKnight develops, I think it’ll look like the right move, even if we all loved Leon as a Jet.

    One day at a time, one game at a time… so far, that’s working out just fine for the Jets.

    In my 12-team fantasy league (just friends), I got laughed at for picking so many Jets players. I’m undefeated so far, and have scored the most points to-date with some judicious shuffling of the lineup and some luck. Sanchez has yet to crack the starting lineup (over Rivers), and Keller is a week-to-week decision, but LT, Folk, and Weatherford have been just dandy so far, and Holmes did OK coming off the bench.

    Just like in real-life, personnel decisions are always a gamble. You try your best to make informed decisions, and the Jets staff have been both decisive AND lucky so far, and the results show in the standings.

    Well we all know Denver is going to let us run on them. The key here is our passing defense. We have to have better safety play. There can be NO easy grabs over the middle any more, period! Digs or someone must make the WR pay. Bailey should make it easy for Holmes and others to exploit their weaker corners. We can definitely win this game with strike quick passing attack early and a consistent running game to seal the deal. I don’t think this one is going to be a break away game. Jets 31 Denver 28
    I also want to just applaud Folks super consistency and ability to just kick it from anywhere!
