New York Jets Tweets of the Week: Volume 8

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

Kind of a slow week in the Twitterverse, but I did what I could.

Jets-Titans Post Game Analysis

Geno Smith and Vlad Ducasse tied for worst rating by @PFF yesterday (-6.3). Vlad lowest rated player for season by a lot. #nyj

— Seth Walder (@SethWalderNYDN) September 30, 2013

Jets could not run any screens...Looks like titans gameplanned hard for them

— Mike Nolan (@nolan_nfl) October 2, 2013

Willie Colon is usually excellent at selling the screen up front...Titans DTs weren't taking the bait

— Mike Nolan (@nolan_nfl) October 3, 2013

Vlad Ducasse played one of the worst games I have ever seen from a professional offensive lineman #Jets

— Mike Nolan (@nolan_nfl) October 3, 2013

Jets-Falcons Pre-Game Tweets

I can tell you right now that Winters may not be an immediate upgrade...He is a guy that we will have to be patient with

— Mike Nolan (@nolan_nfl) October 1, 2013

Another #Falcons defender with the worst passer rating allowed in his position: Akeem Dent - 147.6 with 12-of-13 for 129 yards and 2 TDs.

— Gonzalo Estradé (@PFF_Gonzalo) October 3, 2013

Red Zone Efficiency Falcons- 2013-38.7%=29th ...Last year 58.7%=8th: Patriots 2013-37.5%=30th...Last year 70%-1st

Jets Quoteables

Kellen Winslow on Geno: "We believe in this guy. We know what he's about." #jets

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) September 29, 2013

Rex emphasizes the defense has to start creating turnovers. #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) September 30, 2013

Ryan said he won't bench Geno Smith to get the benefit of watching a game, the way he did with Dee Milliner. "Not a thought." #NFL #Jets

— Jane McManus (@janesports) September 30, 2013

Rex Ryan on whether he's considering benching Geno: "It's not a thought at this pt right now." Wow, that's a double disclaimer. Hmm #Jets

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) September 30, 2013

Goodson: "Just a spark. Hopefully a spark. Wherever they choose to place me, wherever they choose to put me at, just bring a spark." #Jets

— Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) September 30, 2013

Willie Colon agreed Rex is in win-now mode, but told me: "There's no other way to go about what we're dealing w/ right now...(contd) #jets

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) October 1, 2013

Geno said protecting the fball is always emphasized, but today it was stressed "a little bit more." #jets

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) October 2, 2013

Just spoke with David Nelson, told me he ran a 4.54 time last week at his workout with the Jets. Same time as his Pro Day in college.

— Kristian Dyer (@KristianRDyer) October 2, 2013

Vlad on Winters getting 1st-tm reps: "I'm not gonna say I'm happy....I was just doing my job to the best of my ability." #jets

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) October 2, 2013

David Nelson very impressive speaking in the LR. Seems to have a good head on his shoulders. Says surgically-repaired knee not an issue.

— Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) October 2, 2013

Ryan "Darrin's accounted for himself very well, particularly up until his last game." Walls (shoulder) wore red no-contact jersey. #Jets

— Jane McManus (@janesports) October 3, 2013

Rex on Wilkerson's hit and fine: "The intent wasn't to injure a player...I thought Mo was trying to rush the passer."

— Kristian Dyer (@KristianRDyer) October 3, 2013

Ryan said Brian Winters is working a lot with the ones, but Ryan won't say he's definitely the starter yet. #Jets #NFL

— Jane McManus (@janesports) October 3, 2013

Wilkerson said he was cited for roughing the passer, but noted there was no flag for that at the time. #Jets #NFL

— Jane McManus (@janesports) October 3, 2013

Told Jake Locker didn't think the hit was dirty, Wilkerson said: "I personally don’t think it was a dirty hit. I mean, he said it." #jets

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) October 3, 2013

Santonio said he was running downfield vs. #Titans, the hammy tightened up + he realized he couldnt run anymore so he walked off field

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) October 3, 2013

That was "Football" taught by Professor Holmes.

— Seth Walder (@SethWalderNYDN) October 3, 2013

Nelson said he has not had a chance to talk to Tebow about playing for the Jets since he signed. #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) October 3, 2013

Q: Have u given advice or counseled Goodson? Santonio: "That's not part of my job description...I'm excited to see him get back on field"

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) October 3, 2013

Zach Sudfeld is Example 245031 why we all need to take a deep breath before reading into preseason performances by tight ends and receivers.

— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) October 4, 2013

Kotwica: Cro has kept his skills "fresh" working on KO/punt returns in practice, "so if a call comes, he'll be more than ready to answer it"

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) October 4, 2013

Mornhinweg, with his finger in the air, says the penalties are his responsibility. Must change...along with pass protection. #NYJ

— Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) October 4, 2013

"Usually at a quarter of the way through the season you kind of know where you're at, and I'm not sure we do," Mornhinweg said. #Jets #NFL

— Jane McManus (@janesports) October 4, 2013

Marty must drink a ton of coffee. The energy level and intensity level is always off the charts. #NYJ

— Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) October 4, 2013

"The stage hasn't been too big for him." -- Dennis Thurman on Sheldon Richardson

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) October 4, 2013

Thurman said Darrin Walls is always poised + is no stranger to big games. "Hell, he went to Notre Dame." Adds, Walls is "an old soul."

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) October 4, 2013

Sheldon Richardson told me: "It’s just another gm. I promise u. ...I always feel like the whole world’s watching when I’m playing."

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) October 4, 2013

Santonio Holmes, Calvin Pace, and the New York Sports Media

So, Santonio Holmes said today that he was 100% for Week 1. When asked every week for past month whether he was 100%, he always said no #nyj

— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) October 3, 2013

Only exclusive because he refuses to speak with local media, violating NFL rules. @nyjets WATCH: JTL exclusive interview with Calvin Pace.

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) October 3, 2013

Rex admits Holmes' remark was "an unusual comment" but doesn't think it was a slight to Geno #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) October 4, 2013

Holmes went on to retweet a bunch of fans that showed him support. Instead of posting them, I'll just give you a link to his Twitter page.

13 more weeks before the Jets don't have to worry about any more "unusual comment(s)" from a veteran WR. #nyj

Geno Smith limping on way to team bus, still bothered by right ankle injury. No upgrade on Hill, Holmes injuries. #Jets— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) September 29, 2013

"Jetwhispers" being Dan Leberfeld, or "Dr. Leberfeld" as a certain GGN writer likes to refer to him as.

Since Jets hired Rex Ryan in 2009, he and Tom Coughlin have same number of regular-season wins, 36, same number of post-season wins, four.

— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 29, 2013

Weird stat - In last 3 Week 4 games the Jets have lost all 3 by a combined score of 106-30. 38-13 sunday, 34-0 in '12, 34-17 in '11 #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) September 30, 2013

For those asking, the Jets have not expressed any interest in bringing back Braylon Edwards at this time. #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) September 30, 2013

New #Jets WR David Nelson spent 3-years with the Bills; 94 receptions, 1042 yards & 8 TDs

— New York Jets (@JetsGab) October 1, 2013

Last year Rex kept throwing a hurt Bart Scott out there when a hungry Demario Davis sat. Glad he's getting Winters involved now. #Jets

— Drew (@DrewfromJersey) October 1, 2013

Revis has gone from a team that had a problem with media leaks to the biggest sieve in the NFL. #Bucs

— Drew (@DrewfromJersey) October 1, 2013

Goodson's 39.5" vertical leap at '09 Combine 10th-best among RBs in last 6 Combines combined. Career avg's: 4.5 yds/carry, 8.9 yds/catch.

— Randy Lange (@rlangejets) October 1, 2013

Good news for Titans and Jake Locker. It's best-case scenario: Sprained hip and that's all. Out 4 weeks, likely, which means no IR to return

— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 1, 2013

#Jets worked out TE Colin Anderson today, an UDFA from Furman who spent camp/preseason with Minnesota before being one of their final cuts.

— Jake Steinberg (@Steiny31) October 1, 2013

Jets worked out a bunch of TEs today, too.

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) October 1, 2013

.@fboutsiders now gives the Jets a 16.5% chance of making the playoffs. #nyj

— Seth Walder (@SethWalderNYDN) October 1, 2013

#Jets signed David Nelson today, in part to handle Santonio Holmes hamstring. Told he'll be out at least 2 weeks (at Falcons, vs Steelers)

— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 2, 2013

Marty Lyons, entering Jets ring of honor before Steelers game, said his foundation for sick children kept him in area after retirement.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) October 2, 2013

Marty Lyons talking about the looser standards for players being allowed to play with concussions in his day. Could go back in games.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) October 2, 2013

Locker said he doesn't think the hit that injured him was malicious or dirty. Said "it's a part of the game." #Titans

— Jim Wyatt (@jwyattsports) October 2, 2013

Locker obviously disappointed at timing of injury. Started the season on a roll. Now has to watch #Titans

— Jim Wyatt (@jwyattsports) October 2, 2013

From Sig Stats: most deep comp.'s (target 20+yds) thru 4 wks: 12 G.Smith 11 J.Cutler 11 B.Roethlisberger 9 A.Rodgers 8 P.Rivers 8 D.Brees

— Pro Football Focus (@PFF) October 2, 2013

Matt Ryan said he didn't think Mo Wilkerson and Quinton Coples' hits that knocked out Jake Locker were dirty at all. #nyj

— Seth Walder (@SethWalderNYDN) October 3, 2013

Never mind I think, lol. Under @PFF's signature stats, Geno is rated 23rd w/ 80.75 PFF/QB Rating, Freeman 32nd w/ 71.23

— Sean K. O'Brien (@NYJET_Prime) October 3, 2013

#Falcons HC Mike Smith said Geno "has a very strong arm" and has been "very impressive in terms of his ability to make all the throws" #jets

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) October 3, 2013

#Jets made mistakes with how they handled Sanchez. Glad they learned a lesson here. Maybe learn another one and get offensive weapons next.

— Drew (@DrewfromJersey) October 3, 2013

If you are #Bucs CB Darrelle Revis, you got to be missing the #Jets right now.

— Anwar Richardson (@AnwarRichardson) October 3, 2013

Geno Smith and Santonio (Can't Throw it to Myself) Holmes have 2nd-lowest QB/WR comp pct in NFL, per @ESPNStatsInfo - 10 catches/23 targets.

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) October 3, 2013

This was smart, props Idzik. RT @RavensInsider Tight end Zach Sudfeld claimed by the New York Jets, according to a league source

— Michael Schottey (@Schottey) October 4, 2013

Jets claim TE Zach Sudfield (Patriots) on waivers. Had been working out tight ends in recent weeks. Reuland on thin ice. #Jets

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) October 4, 2013

Jets claim ex-Pats TE Zach Sudfeld. I love the gamesmanship in this series.

— Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) October 4, 2013

Quinton Coples wasn't wearing his jersey yesterday at practice because he simply forgot it. #nyj

— Seth Walder (@SethWalderNYDN) October 5, 2013

Tough break for Spadola. Leveled out after the preseason. If he goes unclaimed, have to think he'll be signed to the Practice Squad. #NYJ

— Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) October 5, 2013

I'd expect that the Jets would sign WR Ryan Spadola to the practice squad if he clears waivers. Still, a curious move to cut him today #nyj

— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) October 5, 2013

With Gates questionable, I'd suspect we could see Goodson returning kickoffs vs. Falcons on MNF. #Jets

— Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) October 5, 2013

Something to keep an eye on: Jets TE Kellen Winslow (knee), the team leader in receptions, is officially questionable for MNF v Falcons #nyj

— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) October 5, 2013

Random Tweets

Make it 52 straight games for Tom Brady with a touchdown pass, second longest in NFL history.

— Field Yates (@FieldYates) September 30, 2013

Here's another Super Bowl I shot. Just incredible.

— Aaron Nagler (@Aaron_Nagler) September 30, 2013

The Schaub/Texans audible thing is weird. One thing that allows Brady & Manning to lift the play of teammates is their autonomy at the line.

— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) September 30, 2013

Jon Gruden doing kettlebell raises with 13:00 mins left is all you need to know about this game.

— Melissa Jacobs (@thefootballgirl) October 1, 2013

No team has a perfectly harmonious locker room; too many players, issues. But there appears something deeper going on in Tampa Bay.

— Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) October 2, 2013

Lane Kiffin not allowing sweets for CFB players is the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

— John Middlekauff (@JohnMiddlekauff) October 3, 2013

Pace of @nfl concussions roughly unchanged over 2012. New protocol designed to identify & treat concussions, not really prevent them.

— NFL Concussions (@NFLConcussions) October 3, 2013

Feel for Mark Dominik trying to trade Freeman, asking GMs "Any interest in Josh?" Answer: "Not sure, we'll decide after you cut him."

— Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) October 3, 2013

Clearing up misinformation on termination pay: player files for rest of salary after season. Does not receive in-season checks.

— Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) October 3, 2013

Two years ago Panthers signed Jon Beason to $51M deal with $20M signing bonus. Now looking at fire sale. Treasure to trash.

— Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) October 4, 2013

So the revamped Jets WR corps for Mon. looks like this: Hill, Kerley, Gates, Nelson, Campbell. #nyj
