Bob Glauber: Rex is still in pursuit of Belichick.

Mike Vorkunov: Mark Sanchez says that the Jets offense needs to be efficient.

Dennis Waszak Jr.: Sanchez quiets critics without throwing much.

Manish Mehta: Rex is relying less on Sanchez.

Steve Politi: Tim Tebow is reduced to a Jets afterthought.

Manish Mehta: Belichick calls Tebow a valuable player. It was his OC who drafted him so high, btw.

SportsGeek33: Are Tebow and Tony Sparano planning to revolutionize the Wildcat?

Pro Football Focus: The most and least efficient pass blocking offensive tackles. See where D'Brickashaw Ferguson appears.

Andy Benoit: Film review of Nick Mangold, Shonn Greene and the Jets. Don't forget to vote the War Machine as FedEx Ground Player of the Week.

Matt Ehalt: Mangold and Sione Po'uha sat out yesterday.

The Jets Blog: Jordan White is prepared to take a larger role. I won't hold my breath.

SB Nation: Clyde Gates was held out of practice. Am I just me, or does he not look like Omar Little?

SB Nation: Stephen Hill was limited in practice.

CBS Sports: Hill's father is no longer a New England Patriots fan.

Randy Lange: Aaron Maybin says that Quinton Coples deserves the extra half-sack.

Conor Orr: Coples says that Chandler Jones' sack totals are based on the Patriots scheme.

sportsfan86: Diseases, symptoms and cures for the Jets.

Ben Shpigel: The Jets are hoping to start a tough run on the right foot.

Gary Myers: The Jets have not overtaken the Patriots as the dominant team in the AFC East. Really? The perennial division champs? The team who went to the Super Bowl? You don't say.

Kimberley A. Martin: The Patriots remain a measuring stick for the Jets.

Mike Vorkunov: The Jets will face a different offense from the Patriots than in years past.

Conor Orr: The scout team so far can't replicate the speed at which the Patriots operate. We used to have a guy on practice squad who was really good at emulating Wes Welker. His name was Danny Woodhead.

Manish Mehta: The Patriots' high tempo offense will test the Jets' conditioning.

Bart Hubbuch: For all of the buzz about the no-huddle, the Patriots are just 3-3. Much heap be praised. Calvin Pace says that the Patriots offense is borderline illegal.

AFC East Blog: The Patriots offense is lethal, not illegal. Hence the word "borderline". Ugh, James Walker, you're making me lose my mind. Please try to understand, I've given all I can.

ESPN Boston: Belichick says that in-game adjustments are big against the Jets.

ESPN Boston: Rob Gronkowski says that the Jets defense is unpredictable. Not even with video equipment? Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Associated Press: Sports leagues suing New Jersey might have to turn over documents on the impact of betting.
