New York Jets Tweets of the Week: Volume 13

Jets-Bills Pre-Game Tweets

Rex said he visited his brother during the bye week. Got some intel on the Bills.
— Kristian Dyer (@KristianRDyer) November 11, 2013

David Nelson's quotes make clear that he's the first person in a really long time fired up for a Bills game.
— Kevin Clark (@KevinClarkWSJ) November 11, 2013

People are making a big deal out of Jets alternating wins and losses, but it may be as simple as home (4-1) and road (1-3).
— Erik Frenz (@ErikFrenz) November 13, 2013

Robert Woods will not play Sunday vs. Jets, Marrone says. "I'm not going to string you guys along all week on him," he says.
— Mike Rodak (@mikerodak) November 13, 2013

Most of us already know Woods isn't going to play, but something tells me that Cimini and Costello decided to retweet this tweet in particular due to the Marrone quote.

Weather for Jets-Buffalo game on Sunday - expected high, 58 degrees.
— Dan Leberfeld (@jetswhispers) November 14, 2013

A few Jets players no longer on injury report: Mangold, Nelson, Reuland, Winters. #nyj
— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) November 13, 2013

Rex playing "us against the world" card hard this year. Opens presser by mentioning Jets were underdogs for ninth time in 10 weeks.
— Dan Hanzus (@DanHanzus) November 14, 2013

If Milliner was looking for a breakout game (more so than Week 10), this week is it. Likely to mark Marquise Goodson with heavy safety help.
— Mike O'C (@OConnor_Jets) November 15, 2013

Geno has 13 INTs - the Bills secondary has the same number. He must limit mistakes, make sharp passes this week if Jets want to be 6-4.
— Kristian Dyer (@KristianRDyer) November 15, 2013

#Jets @DavidNelson86 and former #Bills teammates have been razzing each other through texts and Twitter messages all week.
— Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) November 15, 2013

Nelson at the X. Holmes at Z. Salas in the slot. Hill playing situationally. Winslow and Sudfeld in the 2 TE look. Let Geno cook #Jets

Thoughts on Ed Reed

Obvious question that should have been asked on Reed: "If the Ravens, who know him best, won't sign him, why should we?" Red flag.
— Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) November 13, 2013

Jets DC Dennis Thuman said Jets didn't have to recruit Reed; "Had him at hello." #Jets #NfL
— Jane McManus (@janesports) November 14, 2013

@DrewfromJersey Maybe use him as a third-and-long free safety to keep his hip/legs fresh. But that's a stretch even.
— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) November 14, 2013

Rex wins Reed power play. But if Jets lose to Bills, Idzik will smack Rex, send him back to the corner. If Jets lose to Ravens, see ya Rex.

PatriotsXLVIII (@PatriotsXLVIII) November 14, 2013

Reed also underwent a lengthy physical this morning for the Jets and they're comfortable with his hip and health. Should practice today
— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) November 14, 2013

Makes a lot of sense for Reed. A comfortable environment, in a lot of ways, with the Jets and Rex.
— Greg A. Bedard (@GregABedard) November 14, 2013

Rex Ryan's input in personnel was expected to wane under new GM, but the Ed Reed signing shows he can still get what he wants.
— Jenny Vrentas (@JennyVrentas) November 14, 2013

People don't know this as well. The signing is about REX, but it's about the DC as well. Dennis Thurman. Ed's DB coach in Bmore.
— Trevor Pryce (@Trevor_Pryce) November 14, 2013

Thing to remember with Reed is that he won't be asked to play every down. Rex will define a role for him. Team is pleased with Allen/Landry.
— Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) November 14, 2013

Love the Ed Reed! Physical skills declining but his football I.Q is second to none! Secondary needs that in the worst way #Jets
Damien Woody (@damienwoody) November 14, 2013

There's a big picture story to the Jets bringing in Ed Reed. And that big picture is Rex Ryan.
— Adam Schein (@AdamSchein) November 14, 2013

Reed's on-field impact remains to be seen but can't hurt to add proven veteran to a young team searching for identity and consistency. #NYJ
— Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) November 14, 2013

If you think Ed Reed is still great, you haven't been watching. If you don't think he will make a great play or two, you don't know Ed Reed.
— Jerome Solomon (@JeromeSolomon) November 14, 2013

In 13 games (259 snaps) with the #Jets Pryce graded at 10.8 and recorded 24 pressures. @MetsJetsNYR
— Gonzalo Estradé (@PFF_Gonzalo) November 14, 2013

I'm kidding around, but wow, a lot of national media are hating on Ed Reed to Jets. Actually is the best fit for him if he accepts role.
— PatriotsXLVIII (@PatriotsXLVIII) November 14, 2013

Ed Reed joins growing list of former #Ravens to play for Rex with #Jets: Scott, Leonhard, Pryce, MDouglas, Mason, Barnes, DLandry.
— Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) November 14, 2013

If Ed Reed makes just one play to turn a game around this season, this signing will be well worth it. Low-risk/high-reward. Why not? #Jets
— Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) November 14, 2013

On Tuesday, I didn't think the #Jets would be interested in Ed Reed. But Rex Ryan pushed hard. By late yesterday, they were all in.
— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) November 14, 2013

Thing to remember with Reed is that he won't be asked to play every down. Rex will define a role for him. Team is pleased with Allen/Landry.
— Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) November 14, 2013

Reasons why Reed makes sense for the #Jets. 1) Reed will be asked to enhance a decent secondary, not be the savior of it. #JetsAndReed
— Brian Bassett (@Brian_Bassett) November 14, 2013

4) Understand physical limitation concerns, but is he any more physically limited than Jim Leonhard or Eric Smith were? NO. #JetsAndEdReed
— Brian Bassett (@Brian_Bassett) November 14, 2013

Per @pff, Ed Reed is ranked No. 143 among NFL safeties this season. He came in at No. 59 last year.
— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) November 14, 2013

Jets fans angrily defending the Ed Reed signing would be the first ones Nelson Muntz'ing if the Patriots had done it instead.
— Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) November 14, 2013

Rex said Idzik knew Rex would want Reed before they talked about it & had already had scouts review tape from this year
— Chris Nimbley (@Cnimbley) November 14, 2013

Rex insists he did not have to convince Idzik to sign Reed.
— Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) November 14, 2013

Rex said he and DT spoke to Reed to try convince him to sign with the Jets. #nyj
— Seth Walder (@SethWalderNYDN) November 14, 2013

Rex says it's a "false statement" that Reed can't play anymore based on review of this season's game film. #NYJ
— Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) November 14, 2013

Jets S Josh Bush introduced himself to Ed Reed: "Mr. Reed, how you doing? I'm your shadow." #Nfl #jets
— Jane McManus (@janesports) November 14, 2013

Ed Reed's contract w/the Jets has a split salary. His weekly salary will be $25,470 ($433k base rate) instead of $55,294 if he goes on IR.
— Joel Corry (@corryjoel) November 15, 2013

A couple players said Ed Reed's arrival has re-energized the Jets' locker room. Definitely louder than a lot of Fridays. #NFL #Jets

Errant pass in WR drill lands at my feet. I toss to Holmes. Little low, but he makes catch. He's more receptive to my passes than questions.
