Congratulations to TE Dustin Keller, who was recently awarded as United Way's Jets Hometown Hero.

New York will benefit greatly if awarded a Super Bowl, as well as businesses in New Jersey near the new Jets stadium.

Daily News's Mike Lupica says that weather should not be a concern, and Newsday's Bob Glauber says, fuggedaboutit and play.

Rookie OL Vladimir Ducasse feels blessed to be among one of the best O-lines in the league.

O-line Coach Bill Callahan says that OL Robert Turner is also in the mix for starting LG.  Bill gets lauded for being the best position coach, but I don't think he gets enough credit for his role as Assistant HC.

RB Brandon Moore is not a fan of the new overtime rules, which could expand to regular games this season.

You may have seen bits and pieces of this press conference, but here is the full video.  WR Santonio Holmes used to be the X receiver for Pittsburgh, but he also wants to learn Y and Z.  CB Antonio Cromartie prefers man coverage to zone.  CB Darrelle Revis says whoever reported the $20 million was wrong.

QB Mark Sanchez wouldn't take sides on Arizona immigration.

Australian Rugby star Greg Inglis could become Gang Green's kick returner, or possibly an OLB if Cro ends up as KR.

DL Rodrique Wright could be a huge contributor this season.

Eric Allen reports on last week's OTAs.

Mark Cannizzaro has an update on the weight loss challenge.

CB Dwight Lowery was in Newark last week for National Fitness and Sports Month.

LB David Harris and WR David Clowney were in Tenafly yesterday, giving those residents something to do on a blue Sunday.

 

More connections after the jump.
