Scheduled to be 80 degrees and sunny on SUN folks. Dark clothes absorb the sun's heat & White reflects. — Eric Allen (@eallenjets) September 6, 2013
Jets will go into Week 1 vs Bucs w/Geno Smith & Matt Simms at QB (no career starts btwn them). WR Jeremy Kerley will be emergency No 3 #nyj

— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) September 7, 2013
Could see it getting ugly for the #Buccaneers interior pass pro vs the #Jets with the explosiveness that the #Jets have up the middle. — Louis Riddick (@LRiddickESPN) September 4, 2013
Love Vincent Jax but hard Wk 1 matchup. Some No. 1 WR stats vs Cromartie last yr: Andre Johnson 1-15; Crabtree 2-15; L Fitz 1-23; Britt 1-7. — Evan Silva (@evansilva) September 3, 2013

Coordinator Quotes

Marty Mornhinweg calls Santonio Holmes "one of my favorites" for his confident approach. Hopes SH is ready for Sunday. #Jets — Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) September 5, 2013
Q: Will Dee be ready on Sun? DT: "We’ll find out. Ur guess is as good as mine." Says #Jets believe rookie CB has talent + can execute — Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) September 5, 2013
DT hasn't talked to Marty re: Revis. "Film doesn't lie." Adds Revis' intel-sharing w/ #Bucs wont help much cuz he doesnt play offense #jets — Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) September 5, 2013
DT on Rex's defensive schemes: "He'll come up with some stuff that's so off the wall ... but it works." #jets — Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) September 5, 2013
DT on Richardson: There will be some growing pains, but we expect him to go out and do what he can do, and we'll see what happens." #Jets — Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) September 5, 2013
Ben Kotwica not quite the story-teller that Westhoff was but he seems comfortable with his ST's units heading into the season. #NYJ — Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) September 5, 2013
Asked specifically about Kerley leading NFL in fair catches, Kotwica said that can be misleading. Very comfortable/pleased with JK. #NYJ — Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) September 5, 2013

Geno Smith

Since the merger, only two rookie 2nd round QBs started a Week 1 game: Quincy Carter & Andy Dalton. Sunday, Geno Smith becomes the third. — Rich Eisen (@richeisen) September 6, 2013
As I said on GameDay Season Preview: #Jets early impressions of Geno Smith at Combine meeting: Lethargic, disinterested, tired. Umimpressed

— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 5, 2013
One thing clear: #Jets OC Marty Mornhinweg has always raved about Geno Smith's game tape. Has always been his biggest cheerleader.

— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 5, 2013
Asked Geno if he is the Jets franchise QB. Geno: "I'd like to be." #nyj

— Seth Walder (@SethWalderNYDN) September 4, 2013
The Jets are going to need to design plays so that WRs come across the face of Geno to help him change reads.

— NFL Philosophy (@NFLosophy) September 2, 2013
By putting multiple routes in Geno's immediate field of vision encourages him to see jerseys and see open open receivers.

— NFL Philosophy (@NFLosophy) September 2, 2013
Rex Ryan: Geno's got a good grasp of our system... He's moving around more like before ankle injury.

New York Jets (@nyjets) September 5, 2013
Do #Jets really have faith in Geno? Sheldon: 'He's the man in charge rt now, so u've got to have confidence. & if nobody else does, we do'

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) September 5, 2013
Revis called Geno a "gunslinger." #nyj

— Seth Walder (@SethWalderNYDN) September 4, 2013
Jets named Geno Smith starter. New regime, new GM, new QB. Mark Sanchez, re-upped a year ago, becomes $500,000/week backup.

— Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) September 4, 2013
Geno wins by default. But this is how brass wanted it all along. It botched the competition, now forced to start rookie who showed little.

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) September 4, 2013
By doing this, it'd be pretty difficult for the Jets to switch back. Going Sanchez to Smith wld be easy. Smith back to Sanchez, not so much.

— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) September 4, 2013

Mark Sanchez

Idzik said Sanchez had an "efficient" TC, where he put together "3wks of solid practices." Veteran QB is being "diligent" in his rehab #jets

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) September 6, 2013
Been told Mark Sanchez's shoulder injury is more complicated than a simple bruise. Will be interesting to see where rehab goes from here.

— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) September 5, 2013
Barring injury to other QBs, does Mark Sanchez have opportunity to start for Jets again? John Idzik: "Yes.Of course.Of course he does." #nyj

— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) September 4, 2013
John Idzik said Sanchez played vs. Giants because team wanted to see "as much as we could in four quarters" and Rex Ryan carried out plan.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) September 4, 2013
Tomlinson on Mark Sanchez on #ScheinOnSports: "I don't think Mark will be a starter again in the NFL" #jets

— Nick Kostos (@TheKostos) September 3, 2013
Clearly, Sanchez injury worse than team letting on. Also, I don't think #Jets would sign Quinn for 1 or 2 games. Idzik really likes him.

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) September 2, 2013

Darrelle Revis

Here's another bold tweet: Darrelle Revis + Bill Sheridan — Brian Bassett (@Brian_Bassett) September 3, 2013

"I don't think the #Jets WRs r worthy of Revis coming out in this gm...He coulda had the bad knee + covered these guys" -- Ty Law (via SI)

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) September 7, 2013
I'd like to see the #Jets test Revis early. Give Stephen Hill what he wants + see if Revis' ACL can keep up w/ him...

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) September 6, 2013
I really hope Geno Smith is slow-rolling the media when he talks about not studying Revis on tape. Few CBs disguise better.

— SI_DougFarrar (@SI_DougFarrar) September 5, 2013
Among Rex Ryan's "Revis Rules": If the ball's on far hash from where Revis is lined up, don't dare throw a comeback or out route his way.

— Jenny Vrentas (@JennyVrentas) September 4, 2013

Rex Ryan

Rex scans the very small media crowd. Says: "This is good." #jets

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) September 5, 2013
Rex on if he's been "neutered": "Nah, absolutely not." #nyj

— Seth Walder (@SethWalderNYDN) September 3, 2013
Asked about running more because of rookie QB, Rex says that's probably not a great gameplan against tough TB run defense. #NYJ

— Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) September 5, 2013
Rex tells #Jets fan @Espngreeny to raise his expectations for 2013 cause #NYJ are going to be "a heckuva lot better than ppl think"

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) September 6, 2013

Rex Missing Cut Day to See His Sons First Football Game at Clemson Controversy

Rex claims cuts were done on Friday night. But waiver claims weren't. #nyj

— Seth Walder (@SethWalderNYDN) September 3, 2013
Rex Ryan going to son's college game at Clemson? Good for him. He was not only HC who did that on Saturday.

— Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) September 3, 2013
Only criticism I'd have of Rex would be that he wasn't there to look cut players in the eye. But family first? Can't get on a guy for that.

— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) September 3, 2013
I appreciate that Rex went to support his son. I also appreciate that his son would understand Rex missing it considering gravity of cuts

— NFL Philosophy (@NFLosophy) September 3, 2013
If any article is written with a clear agenda, I automatically have an immediate aversion to said agenda. Lay out facts, not disparagement.

— NFL Philosophy (@NFLosophy) September 3, 2013
Woody Johnson supports Rex Ryan's decision to go to Clemson last Saturday. Had no problem with it

— Gary Myers (@garymyersNYDN) September 4, 2013
Talking to people arnd the NFL this AM, clear that HC missing cutdown day isn't normal. But some defend Rex, say technology makes it doable.

— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) September 3, 2013
At this point I think we've passed the tipping point of Rex Ryan being unable to win in the media's eyes. Whatever he does he's wrong.

— Sam Monson (@PFF_Sam) September 3, 2013
Talked to an assistant this summer who said he will change the culture if he becomes a head coach. More family time.

— Pete Prisco (@PriscoCBS) September 4, 2013

Santonio Holmes

Holmes says he was never a candidate for the short-term IR #nyj

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) September 4, 2013
Good sign for Santonio Holmes that #NYJ went with Lansanah instead of WR Michael Campbell off of the practice squad.

— Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) September 7, 2013

Other Jets Related Stuff

Stephen Hill says he may have gotten a bit "complacent" after his 2 TD debut against the Bills last season. #NYJ

— Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) September 5, 2013
The #Jets have 10 DBs on their 53. Half of them are 25 or younger. ...If u count Coples, 5 of their 6 D-lineman are 25 or younger #nyj

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) September 5, 2013
Idzik praised Bilal Powell ('Shoot, he took almost every rep this summer & didn't miss a beat') + TE Jeff Cumberland #jets

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) September 4, 2013
Kenrick (back) won't say when he expects to be back. But recognizes he'll be competing w/ 'Snacks.' "He's been ballin. I'm proud of him."

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) September 4, 2013
Antonio Allen starting at safety. Vlad Ducasse starting at LG, Rex announces. #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) September 4, 2013
% of folks around #NFL who've decided #Jets will suck based on interviews & dumb articles? Who knows,but feel free 2 actually watch football

Matt Chatham (@chatham58) September 5, 2013
Interesting thought from tonight's show. Hypothetical. Lets say Jets have the No. 3 pick. Top two QBs are gone. No trade. Take Clowney?

— Dan Kadar (@MockingTheDraft) September 5, 2013
Reasons why #Jets won't name QB: Gamesmanship. Idzik paranoia. Geno didn't "win" job. Don't want to admit severity of Sanchez injury. #CYA

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) September 3, 2013
Jets signing @BQ9. Know him through brother-in-law @OfficialAJHawk. High character guy who stepped up amid tragedy in KC last yr.

— Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) September 2, 2013
Spoke with Bilal Powell today, told me that he ran a version of the Wildcat in college at UL "once in awhile, but it wasn't all that often."

— Kristian Dyer (@KristianRDyer) September 2, 2013
Powell on being starting RB: "I'm blessed and grateful. Just shows my hard work that I put on it didn't go unnoticed."

— Matt Ehalt (@MattEhalt) September 5, 2013

Random Things

In the last 9 seasons, The team with the most wins in the regular season has not won the Super Bowl

— NFL Stats (@NFL_Stats) September 3, 2013
Very interested to see just how much defenses follow through on their promise to hit QB's running the zone read/option even if they hand it

— Louis Riddick (@LRiddickESPN) September 4, 2013
And @ProFootballTalk is right -- Players smoking pot is far more common than most people realize. Most guys have no issue passing tests.

— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) September 5, 2013
Funny (and true) statement from Dez Bryant on what it would take to be the NFL MVP: "Being a quarterback."

— Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) September 5, 2013
I can tell you this: Inside the team buildings, there are overreactions too. Different atmospheres after a win versus a loss.

— NFL Philosophy (@NFLosophy) September 6, 2013
RT @TMM75: Does team chemistry form a winning team, or does winning create team chemistry? >>Both. Set the tone. Winning makes it easier.

— NFL Philosophy (@NFLosophy) September 7, 2013
Serious question: Anybody other than ESPN heard from Roger Goodell lately? It’s like he’s become the invisible commissioner.

— Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) September 2, 2013
The dynamic between the "football side" & "business side" is an interesting one. In my mind, I knew which had priority. Not everyone agreed

— NFL Philosophy (@NFLosophy) September 4, 2013
The Patriots are signing KR Leon Washington... again, source says. That should take them to 53. Figure he's with them headed to Buffalo

— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 7, 2013
