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

— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) October 5, 2013

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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."

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

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

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