A Sock Full Of Jets Observations

C’mon now, you didn’t think I was going to avoid a foot related pun on national “just when you think anything else couldn’t happen for your team to grab headlines, it is found out your head coach and his wife make foot fetish videos and post them all over the Internet” day?

Honestly, I have nothing to comment on it, except for the following:

  1. This was the cover story on a major newspaper’s front page section, not sports section, in the biggest city in our country. What does that say about journalism in America?
  2. For everybody hating on Rex about this, save your hate for Bill Belichick who had affair and ruined two marriages in the process. So what if Rex is into his wife’s feet? A little weird? Yes…actually very weird, but whatever it is their personal life.
  3. Finally, you really put these videos on YouTube and all over the Internet, Mr. and Mrs. Ryan and expected nobody to eventually find out?

Now on to that 10-4 football team, we cover here at Turn On The Jets

  • Despite being the 5th best known linebacker on the roster. Bryan Thomas leads the Jets with 5 sacks this season. He remains an under appreciated player in the Jets system, who does the little things that helps their defense succeed and has contributed his share of big plays in 2010.
  • LaDainian Tomlinson is only 114 yards away from cracking 1,000 and has already racked up 50 receptions. Despite a slowed down second half, Tomlinson has produce enough for the Jets offense to merit his signing. For the record, he has 58 more rushing yards than Thomas Jones and is averaging 4.3 yards per carry compared to Jones’ 3.9. He also has 37 more receptions than him.
  • It is hard not be disappointed with Shonn Greene’s 696 yards and 4.0 yards per carry. Some of the blame should go to the coaching staff for not using him enough or letting him get into a rhythm. Yet, some of the blame has to go on Greene’s shoulders as well. However keep in mind Greene didn’t make his mark until the postseason last year.
  • It is pretty amazing that Santonio Holmes is only 3 receptions behind Tomlinson for the team lead, despite missing the first four games because of a suspension.
  • Braylon Edwards has been impressive this year with 46 receptions, 774 yards, and 6 TDs. He is averaging a whopping 16.8 yards per catch, making a strong argument for the Jets to find a way to bring him back in 2011.
  • David Harris has been very good as usual in 2010 but it is hard to say he has been great or complain if he doesn’t receive any post-season accolades. He currently has 93 tackles, 3 sacks, 3 TFLs, and 1 FF. You can’t say he is leading tackler on the best defense in the NFL anymore either, since the Jets defense simply isn’t the league’s best this year unlike in 2009.
  • You want to talk about filling up a stat sheet? Look at Brad Smith’s 2010 line – 221 rushing yards, 1 rushing TD, 4 receptions, 44 yards, 1 completion, 1 TD, 12 tackles, 29.1 yards per kick return, 2 return TDs.
  • He is still inconsistent in coverage but hard to ignore Drew Coleman’s 39 tackles, 3 sacks, 1 TFL, 4 PDs, 1 INT, and 4…yes 4 FF’s.

Anybody still trying to talk themselves into New England losing their last two and the Jets winning out to steal the AFC East? Let’s go Bills, this Sunday and then tank it for us in week 17.

One early preview for the 12 pack this week – Darrelle Revis is getting his first interception this week. Jay Cutler isn’t the kind of quarterback who is smart enough to avoid throwing at him and Revis will make him pay.
