A quick refresher on New York Jets RB Mike Goodson, who will rejoin the team this week
The New York Jets will be boosted this week by the return of running back and kick returner Mike Goodson. After being signed in the off-season to a three year contract, Goodson was suspended for the first four games for violating the NFL’s policy and program for substances of abuse.
Despite Bilal Powell’s terrific start (66 carries, 292 yards, 11 receptions, 108 yards), the Jets could badly use Goodson’s speed and explosiveness on both offense and special teams. They have been one of the worst return teams in football and are thin at running back with Chris Ivory nursing a hamstring injury. Powell is a very effective inside runner but Goodson should be able to bring some punch on outside runs and in the screen game.
Here is a quick refresher on his game and what he could bring to the table.

Initial Reaction to the New York Jets getting beat down In Tennessee
The New York Jets got hit in the mouth in Tennessee today, falling to the Titans 38-13. It was ugly from the very beginning they were never able to turn the tide, primarily thanks to a rash of turnovers and penalties. It was a nightmare performance for rookie quarterback Geno Smith who had 2 interceptions and 2 very bad fumbles, both of which showed very little field awareness.
The Turn On The Jets 12 Pack gives predictions for Jets vs. TItans
The New York Jets have turned a few heads with their early season victories over the Tampa Bay Bucs and Buffalo Bills. They entered the season with low expectations that were exaggerated by many who had them pegged as a 2-4 win team. A closer look at the roster revealed a defense that was likely to be among the league’s best, a coach who has repeatedly got the most out of his talent and an offense that could have the potential for a few breakthrough performances. The Jets might not have projected to a playoff team but they certainly didn’t project to be among the league’s worst teams.

Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio breaks down the New York Jets Week 4 opponent, the Tennessee Titans
The New York Jets bounced back nicely after a tough division loss against New England, outplaying the Buffalo Bills for the majority of Sunday’s matchup. Don’t let the score fool you, the Jets handled the Bills and won the battle in the trenches on both sides of the ball. If Vlad Ducasse and Kyle Wilson not committed 9 penalties amongst themselves, the final score might have looked much different. Now the Jets travel to Nashville, Tennessee to face the AFC South leading 2-1 Titans. Let’s get to know them a little better…

A moment of appreciation for the New York Jets defense early in the season
When the New York Jets began the 2009 season, their first under Rex Ryan, the defense produced a “wow” factor. The unit jumped off the screen, with their speed, exotic formations and endless blitz packages. They sustained it throughout the season and had arguably the league’s top unit but those initial games, victories over Houston, New England and Tennessee, set the tone and made it clear you’d be watching a special unit all season.
This season has the same feel.
