Owner Woody Johnson has made bold moves in recent years.

HC Rex Ryan dropped the first puck at the NHL's Dallas Stars vs. New York Islanders game on Saturday.

Sexy Rexy has been losing more weight, and the effort has inspired players like C Nick Mangold and OL Rob Turner.

Rex and his dad Buddy Ryan have a history with Minnesota.

After being rivals for years in the AFC North, Ryan knew he would want WR Santonio Holmes on his team.

The multi-talented WR Brad Smith believes he hasn't done anything great yet.

TE Dustin Keller is developing into one of the best in the league.

Jets great RB Curtis Martin speaks about RB LaDainian Tomlinson's production at his age.

RB Joe McKnight seems to think that the release of RB Danny Woodhead showed the team has faith in the rookie.

OLB Jason Taylor's first sack in the NFL was against Favre in the preseason.

P Steve Weatherford has earned the confidence of STC Mike Westhoff.

Former Jets OL Jumbo Elliott and Gang Green didn't give up on MNF ten years ago.

The Jets have signed former Minnesota WR Logan Payne to the practice squad.  At the very least, it should make the Vikings wonder what we know.

Bob Glauber believes trading away WR Randy Moss is advantageous for New England.

Bob Raissman believed the TV networks would downplay the allegations involving Minnesota RB Brett Favre.  Was he right?

J.P. Pelzman warns about the real threat in Minnesota, RB Adrian Peterson..

 

More connections after the jump.

I reached out to Executive VP Matt Higgins via twitter, and it seems like they have no plans to put the Jets logo at midfield.  I'm a little disappointed because the FieldTurf company seemed to brag that having the team logos at midfield would be a feature of the new stadium and seemed to imply that there would be no safety issues.  But I guess it's better to err on the side of caution.

The official team website says, it's all about the trenches.  Crackback said the same thing long ago.

Michael Salfino foresees victory for Gang Green.

Turn On The Jets shares expectations for tonight

Former Jets DE Dave Ball had a good game for Tennessee yesterday.

Former Jets FS Kerry Rhodes scored for Arizona yesterday.

Here is Jets great DE/DT/NT Joe Klecko at a PAL Flag Football Jamboree:
