New York Jets DE Quinton Coples, 9.27

On the comments from Coach Ryan on possibly getting more playing time…

I think its great that he’s built his confidence up in me, giving me more playing time.  It’s been a learning process for me, learning the different scheme in the defense, but I’m ready now and I’m ready to take further responsibility.

On what has been the hardest part so far…

Just adjusting to the offenses, learning the schemes of the defense wasn’t as hard. Just reacting to what the offense gives you, knowing the personnel, knowing the formation, how to react to certain different blocks and things of that nature.  I’ve been spending more time with the coaches, understanding the defense and recognizing blocks and its finally paying off.

On whether he can make an impact on Sunday…

Yes, I definitely think I can make an impact.  It’s definitely going to be great to give some guys a blow. I just need to get out there, and take on some of those tackles for the linebackers as well and make plays as well for myself.

New York Jets NT Sione Po’uha, 9.27

On Darrelle Revis being out for the season…

With Darrelle, he’s a one of a kind player and we all have to do all that we can (and) everybody has to do a little bit extra.  Nobody will ever fill his spot or make up for the kind of talent he has.  We all just need to do a little bit more.  I think a little bit more is just paying attention to detail, technique and discipline.

On relating to Kyle Wilson and having to step up for another player…

(We try) to kind of water down the ‘shock-and-awe’ of something like this happening. We always have that theme that every player (has to) practice like they’re a starter. Whether it’s in my situation, or the current situation, every player practices like a starter, so it’s not a ‘shock-and-awe’ when his number’s called.

On how difficult it is for rookies to transition from college football…

Whether it be Quinton Coples or Muhammad Wilkerson or Kenrick Ellis, these guys (are) light-years ahead of when I was a rookie. It took me a little while to get in, and they seemed to make the transition seamlessly and they’re doing a great job. (They’re) really mature for such young players.

On Coples’ abilities during practice…

He always had the determination and I think you can almost see it, it just becomes relevant when somebody kind of gets it – the “gets it” factor.  I think Q (Coples) kind of understands, “Okay, this is how things work, this is how I fit into the scheme of things.” He’s always had great effort, (he’s) always had great technique, but I think it’s almost becoming more of a second nature to him and that’s where you can see the blossom take place.

New York Jets CB Kyle Wilson, 9.27

On his new role…

It’s cool. I’m just going to continue to go out there and do the same things I’ve been doing. That’s just looking forward to playing and having a good time out there.

On working with Darrelle Revis.…

It’s been a great thing. I’ve been studying with him and taking notes ever since I got here. I do that with all the defensive backs and guys around the league (to) see some things in their game that they do well and possibly try to implement that into my game. Everybody is a little different, but I do try to pick his brain and use it for everything it’s worth.

On what he thought about after Revis got hurt…

I was thinking we have work the next day. It was the usual day after the game, correct and review from the game, so I didn’t really think too much about it.

On if he had any emotional reaction to Revis being out…

No, I just wished him well (and) kept him positive. He’s a good friend of mine. Really nothing more than that. (It) doesn’t really change my approach to the game.

On San Francisco’s wide receivers…

They have a solid group of wide receivers and they do a lot of things well. Obviously, (they do a good job) running the ball. We just have to do our job on every single play and just go out there and play physical.

On having a starting role…

That just means continue to do my job. I don’t call plays. I don’t do anything like that. I just do my assignment on every play. Whatever position I’m at, wherever I am on the field, I just play my technique to the best of my ability.

On if the team is worried about Revis being out…

Our focus is just getting better each week. We want to get better than we were last week.

On the referees reaching a deal with the NFL…

I’d say it put a smile on my face. I won’t say too much else, but I’m just happy they’re back.

On if he saw the final play in the Packers at Seahawks game…

I just saw it the day after the game. I didn’t know that happened, and ultimately, to have the game come down to that last play was just a crazy incident. 

On the final play in the Packers at Seahawks game…

You can look at it all different ways, guys should have batted the ball down, maybe should have wrestled it away harder. At the end of the day, you just have to do whatever it takes to make the play.

On if there was a difference in the way the replacement officials refereed games…

The only thing I can possibly think of (are), in my opinion, some things that were changed last year, I just noticed maybe some different things this year, but that’s just my opinion. I don’t know what goes on. 

On if their game plan changes without Revis…

I’m not sure. You have to talk to the coaches about that stuff. We’re just going to continue to do what we’ve been doing on defense and that’s playing good, solid, physical football. We look forward to it.

On San Francisco’s receivers…

It’s a good group of receivers. They run good routes and catch the ball. We just have to get our hands on them, play physical, play our game, play our technique, go out there, have fun and make plays. (It’s) the same every week.

On Randy Moss…

He’s not in there every play. He’s really important in certain situations where we have to key in on him. He’s still Randy Moss.

On if he is familiar with Mario Manningham…

I study him just like everybody else. Just playing the games and seeing him, maybe matchups are different, but (I’m) somewhat familiar with him.

On his unflappable demeanor…

I don’t want to make too much of it. I want to continue to do the things I’ve been doing and they’ve worked well for me so far. I’m just looking to get better. It’s the same every week, looking to get better. Over time, if you don’t get better, you get worse.

On staying even-keeled on the field…

It’s hard, but you definitely have to have kind of a tricky memory. You want to have a short memory, but you want to have a smart memory. You have to give and take. I just try to use my experience to my advantage. 

On what he has discussed with Revis this week…

It has been the same old talk between us.

On if Revis has given him more advice because he is getting more playing time now…

It’s not that much more than I’ve been doing. It’s the same. We’re just good friends and we just talk, the usual stuff.

On what he works on with Revis in the offseason…

It’s just really working on a lot of technique and continuing to break down film, as well as overall working out, just getting your body ready for the season.

On what he worked on with Revis this offseason…

I worked with him. I worked with a few other guys, so it was a culmination of a lot of different things. Last year, I had a good chance to know exactly what I wanted to do in the offseason as far as training and time off. I had a good plan. I actually stuck with it.

On if practice has felt different for him this week…

No, (there’s) just more media.

On having high-expectations as a first-round draft pick….

That just goes into preparation each week. Either you’re prepared or you’re not. I looked at myself as more capable, well-prepared every week to do that and be in that position. I’m not going to look at it any differently. I see it as a nice opportunity and I’m definitely going to do everything I can, but I’m not going to change up something that I’ve been working on that’s working well for me.

On what is the most important piece of advice Revis has given him…

It’s kind of little tidbits here and there, but just to play my game. That’s pretty much it. Just kind of learn as you go on, but ultimately to just play my game.

On if his family is excited…

They’re excited. That’s an understatement.

On if he has to buy his family extra tickets…

I always take care of my family. Everybody else, that’s on them to take care of themselves.

On previously saying he was a trash-talker on the field…

It’s more of an attitude thing. Say they’re throwing balls to a (receiver), it’s just like they’re messing with you. So if you can get a chance to go back, it’s just an attitude thing. When we’re out there it’s a physical game and guys get after it. I don’t have a problem with that stuff.

On how he talks trash on the field when he is quiet off it…

Yeah, if you played against me you would know. That’s the best way I can describe it.

Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | Archive: FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - The last time the Jets had Bilal Powell in the lineup, at full strength, he ran all over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Forced into the lead back role with Matt Forte sidelined, he ran for 163 yards on 7.8 yards per carry, including a 75-yard touchdown run.

He's back this week in time for the Jets game in Miami on Sunday, and so is Forte, with both apparently as close to full strength as they're going to be. But the Jets can't revert to their old habit of splitting their backfield duties.

They need Powell to carry the load.

Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson (shoulder/toe) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, and will be a game-time decision, head coach Todd Bowles said on Friday.

Wilkerson played through his shoulder injury in Weeks 4 and 5, and didn't practice throughout those weeks, so this might be the same scenario.

However, Bowles added that the team has discussed the possibility of giving Wilkerson one or two weeks off.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- On the day the Jets re-signed Muhammad Wilkerson in the summer of 2016 to a blockbuster, five-year, $86 million contract, they made it clear they were banking on him and not Sheldon Richardson. Fourteen months later, Richardson was traded.

RB Bilal Powell, who missed last week's game due to a calf injury, practiced on Thursday and will return when the Jets face the Dolphins on Sunday in Miami, head coach Todd Bowles said.

DE Muhammad Wilkerson (shoulder/toe) was the only Jets player who didn't practice on Thursday.

Bent, theJetsBlog.com Follow on Twitter: Powell should hopefully give a boost to the Jets' struggling running game, although I suspect the team's inability to get the running game going has more to do with how overmatched the Jets have been in the trenches...

He may be one of the most productive tight ends in football at the moment, but Jets TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins admits his career was taking a dive before joining the Green and White. 

Seferian-Jenkins has caught 23 passes over the last four weeks of the season. It could be more if he didn't have to serve a two-game suspension that stems from his DUI arrest last September when he was with the Buccaneers.

But ASJ doesn't mind the numbers. He is happy that he is still playing the game he loves in the first place.

After a hot start to his rookie season, Jets S Jamal Adams became the latest victim of Patriots' star TE Rob Gronkowski in the Jets' 24-17 loss on Sunday. 

Adams had troubles with Gronk from the beginning of the game. The Jets had a 14-0 lead when Patriots QB Tom Brady launched a ball toward the back of the end zone intended for Gronkowski. Adams made a play on the ball, but refs said that he made too much contact with the 6-foot-6 tight end resulting in a pass interference call.

Dion Lewis would score on the next play, and Adams was still surprised as to why the refs threw the flag.

Bent, theJetsBlog.com Follow on Twitter: The Jets gave a good account of themselves and, despite some glaring weaknesses, continue to prove that they're a more talented group than most people gave them credit for before the season. Let's break down the performances on the defensive side of the ball from the Jets' loss to the Patriots in Week 6:

Defensive Line

The defensive line once again didn't make any major contributions, with New England rushing for 118 yards at an average of 4.7 per carry and officially surrendering just four quarterback hits and no sacks. However, that was partly due to the Jets' gameplan. They didn't blitz much, sending just four rushers on average. And some of the bigger runs they gave up came with pass defense personnel on the field or one of Leonard Williams and Muhammad Wilkerson on the bench...

The Jets assigned wide receiver Jalin Marshall to the practice squad on Monday after they waived him on Saturday.

Marshall, who served a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs, was waived to make room for cornerback Xavier Coleman on the team's active roster for Sunday's 24-17 loss to the New England Patriots.

The 22-year-old Marshall recorded 14 catches for 162 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games last season. He also returned 18 punts for 100 yards and 13 kickoffs for 324 yards.

Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | Archive: The decision to turn an Austin Seferian-Jenkins' touchdown on Sunday into a hard-to-explain fumble and touchback was a "clear and obvious" decision, according to the replay official who made the call.

Al Riveron, the NFL's senior VP of officiating, strongly defended his call in a conference call with reporters on Monday morning, one day after it impacted the Jets' 24-17 loss to the New England Patriots. He said the reversal of the touchdown after a video review was absolutely the correct decision based on the rule, and he didn't see anything controversial about it.

"No doubt about it, it was clear and obvious," Riveron said. "And we use that (standard) for every replay. Unless it's clear and obvious to us, we will not change the ruling on the field, and this definitely met that criteria."

Jets QB Josh McCown got off to a hot start on Sunday, but couldn't hold on to the lead as the Patriots earned the win on the road. 

The Jets jumped to a quick, 14-0 lead in the first half. However, the offense couldn't get anything going allowing Tom Brady to do what he does best and get the Pats the lead back. 

"Obviously we broke stride there and didn't keep pace the way we'd like," McCown told Jets.com's Eric Allen. "We have some short-yardage situations that we have to find a way to convert and be better at. We weren't converting and (we were) putting our defense right back out there. You can't give Tom (Brady) that many chances."
