Opening Statement…

First off, thoughts and prayers go out to Chris Berman and his family. I know his father, Jim, was a longtime Jets supporter and fan of the Jets. But, (I) just wanted to throw that out. We’re thinking about you. As far as practice goes, it was (a) pretty good day today. (We) did make some mistakes, so we’re not there and it’s a good thing we never played because we made some mistakes that we need to fix. Guys were working hard. I think tomorrow should be a better day and we’ll be ready to roll. As far as guys that did not practice today, we have: Oday (Aboushi) is out with knee, did not practice. Quinton Coples with his ankle. Santonio Holmes with his foot. Both those things, (it) wasn’t like they had a setback. Those days were planned by our training staff. Dee Milliner was not able to practice today with his hamstring. Neither was Chris Ivory. These players were limited: Kenrick Ellis, back, Clyde Gates, knee, Kellen Winslow, knee and Sheldon Richardson, shoulder. So, that’s the list.

On Milliner’s injury...

It’s just that he wasn’t able to go today. Again we’ll see how he looks tomorrow and what the trainers, doctors tell us. But, he wasn’t able to go today.

On whether Darrin Walls will be the nickel back if Milliner is out…

That’s certainly a possibility. If that was the case, Kyle (Wilson) would be the nickel. Walls would go in and play the (outside) corner.

On whether he’s disappointed with Milliner…

No, just the opposite. The kid was coming and so we’ll see. Hopefully this isn’t that big of an issue because he’s certainly, he’s going like this (improving). Did he have a poor performance against New England? It wasn’t at the level we wanted him to play at? Yeah, absolutely, but that doesn’t mean we weren’t happy with him. He played well this past week. The kid is only going to do this (improve).

On whether he’s concerned with Milliner’s injury history…

But, how many games did he miss in college? Yeah exactly, I think one game. I think that was it. In this game, its 100 percent injury rate as we’ve always said. So, we know everybody gets hurt. This kid hasn’t missed time. We’ll see how he goes, later on this week with his hamstring. But, no we’re not concerned that he’s an injury thing. He played with a shoulder that probably could’ve been operated (on). Some guys might’ve had it operated on way earlier in the season. Instead, he goes all the way through, plays in the National Championship game, gets ready to run in the combine. Runs a 4.3 something, and then has the surgery. So, one thing we know about Dee, (he is a) very competitive young man. Hopefully, it won’t be long with this injury.

On how Milliner is dealing with the injuries and benching…

Well, the benching that happens to everybody, so I think that’s just part of it and he understands that. Everybody understands it.

On Milliner being competitive…

Oh yeah, you’ll see. You’ll get to talk to him today.

On whether he has concerns about the durability of players from the SEC…

No, sure don’t.

On whether his goals for the team have changed given the 2-1 start…

No. With us, every game we went into, we thought we’d win. So, we’re not where we wanted to be or probably expected to be, but hey, we’ll just keep working. Obviously, we know we have to improve a great deal. But, we’re working to get better each day and each week.

On proving people wrong…

Alright, we’ll see. It’s a long season ahead. I think I know what it’s going to look like, but we’ll see.

On evaluating Demario Davis coming out of college…

Well, he jumped off the tape. That’s what you look for. A guy that can run and hit and has the physical tools to play in this league, that’s the first thing you look for. Then you start bringing him in, even one of the 30 visits that we brought in, so we could spend more time with him in the classroom, see how he picks things up. See the feedback he gives you on his defense and all that. And then also understanding, how when you look at a guy, you kind of project the kind of teachers that you have around him (whether he) can he pick it up. With him, obviously we were really confident that Demario would be an outstanding pro and I think his situation was really an ideal situation in the fact that you had Bart Scott in front of him. Bart’s a tremendous player and a great mentor and leader, then he just kind of passed the torch onto Demario.

On his expectations for Bilal Powell when the season started…

I mean we knew he’d compete for playing time at that spot. We have a lot of confidence in Bilal and always did. The number one thing is, for a back, he’s outstanding in pass protection, let alone his running skills and pass receiving skills, so that we knew was a real positive about Bilal. But, did we think he’d have to carry it, how many, 27 times or something like that? We thought that’d be distributed maybe a little differently, but a couple of backs weren’t available.

On whether they would make a move at running back by the end of the week…

I guess anything’s possible, but we’ll see what happens. The good thing about our situation is Tommy (Bohanon) can play some tailback and Konrad (Reuland) can play some fullback as well. But again, with us, we’ll see how Chris is, but if we think we need to make a move, I’m sure we’ll consider it.

On whether he’d like to see the defense create more turnovers…

We’ll there’s no question. That’s something we need to get better at. We have to create some opportunities for our offense. Obviously, this week’s going to be a huge challenge in that regard. This team (the Titans) hasn’t turned the ball over yet. But again, yeah, we need to. We’re doing an outstanding job, especially in the red zone. I’m not taking that away from our defense at all. (Am I) pleased with it? I’ve kind of expected that we’ll play (well) on defense. It seems like we’ve had one major breakdown per game. If we can eliminate it, like I said, we’ll be pretty good. We gave up a touchdown on a blown coverage in the New England game and when Buffalo scored their touchdown, it was on a blown coverage also. Those are two right there, I don’t know how many touchdowns we’ve given up, I think (four) this season, and two of them were on blown coverages. If we fix them and continue to play well, especially in the red zone, we should be pretty good.

On the difference between Tennessee’s team this year and last year…

I think it’s a big difference, their team’s different. Just the people they have in there, they put a lot of resources into that offensive line. Obviously you got (Andy) Levitre coming over from Buffalo, a high price free agent and then you draft (Chance) Warmack from Alabama. Those are two really, really good football players and then you got the two former Pro Bowlers. They’re really running the ball. They are committed to it. (Their) time of possession is like almost four or five minutes different from the previous season. (Do) you expect it out of a (Coach) Mike Munchak team? Yeah, I think so. I don’t think there’s any doubt.

On what he remembers from last year’s game against Tennessee…

You look at the tape and you learn from it. You do all that type of stuff, but obviously it was a very disappointing night for us.

On if the identity of the defense has shifted from the secondary to the defensive line…

No, it’s our defense. You’ll do things based on your players, but obviously you mention the front. We have some very talented guys (that) we put some high picks into. Like I said, we have three first-round picks in a row in that defensive line and every one of them are hits. That bodes well for us moving forward.

On how important it is for a linebacker to be agile…

I think a big thing that we like to do is play our sub-defense if you will, (our) third-down defense with two inside linebackers. If you can do that, you’ll stop the run better. Sometimes you’ll have mismatches as far as beating protections, beating a back, something like that. It’s hard because you have to be able to run with tight ends, you have to be able to run with backs, man coverage, certain zone coverages. That’s why you’ll see a lot of teams just play with one linebacker. With us, we’ve always preferred to keep both of them out there.

On Justin Hunter…

He made a huge play this past week, obviously. He’s a guy, a down-the-field guy, a tall, linear type receiver. The thing I’m impressed with is that he goes up for the ball. He competes for it. He always did that in college as well. It’s not surprising that he made that catch at the end of the game there. What is a little surprising is the big kid out of Rutgers (Kenny Britt), he hasn’t played as much as what I remember in the past.

On how Ellis Lankster got to where he is now…

Just hard work. He’s a guy that puts the work in. Obviously, he’s got the toughness, he’s got the mentality to play corner. You have to forget the play before and move on if (you do) get beat. I love his competiveness. He’s a tough guy, there’s no doubt.

On a clip from NFL films from the Buffalo game regarding the playbook…

What happens with that, each week you have a different game plan. It’s about this thick or whatever. Every now and then, somebody will fly off the radar, give me the bible, I want to see this, this and this from it. That’s not in your game plan specific book. That’s in the stuff you did in training camp or something you’ve done in the past. I call it a bible. That time I was probably looking for the real Bible too, but that’s how it goes (laughter).

On if he had the book with him…

I didn’t have it with me.

On if he received it by helicopter…

No, but we found a way to get it.

On if Santonio Holmes is back to his old self…

If he says no, then I’ll say no. Guys, he had the most yards that he’s ever had in a game, so that was encouraging. My favorite catch is the one he went up in between two defenders, way up high and caught the ball. (He has) great hands. As I always said, I hope he plays. Now you guys know why I was hoping he plays. He is a legitimate number one receiver.

Who do the Jets turn to at QB? 00:02:20
The Daily News Live crew debates over who the Jets should start at quarterback with Josh McCown being ruled out for the rest of the season.

Jets QB Josh McCown is out for the rest of the season as he needs surgery on his broken left hand, according to head coach Todd Bowles. 

McCown suffered the injury in the third quarter of Sunday's 23-0 loss to the Broncos. He walked off the field in obvious pain, and underwent X-rays during the game. He received a second opinion on the hand, and it was suggested he should get surgery to repair it. 

"It just sucks," McCown said emotionally after the game.

Any lingering hopes of the Jets remaining in playoff contention were put to rest by a struggling Broncos team that was met with scant resistance in their 23-0 win. This continues a season-long pattern of futility on the road for this Jets team, which drops to 5-8 on the year and now seems destined to end up 5-11 for the season season in a row.

Let's start this week by breaking down the performances on the offensive side of the ball:

GEICO SportsNite: FNNY on Jets 00:03:08
The Football Night in New York crew break down the Jets ugly 23-0 loss to the Broncos in Denver on Sunday.

After Jets quarterback Josh McCown suffered a broken left hand in Sunday's 23-0 loss to the Denver Broncos, second-string quarterback Bryce Petty said he feels "ready" to step up for New York's Week 15 matchup against the New Orleans Saints.

"I am going to give my heart and soul and prepare for this week for New Orleans," Petty said, according to NJ.com's Connor Hughes. "Whatever happens in the future, happens, but all I can do is worry about things I can control. Whether Josh plays, or whether he doesn't, I am going to go in there prepared and ready to lead this team."

Given McCown's injury is on his non-throwing hand, it is unclear if he will play during the team's final three games of the season. Head coach Todd Bowles said McCown will undergo further tests this week to evaluate his status for the rest of the season.

Bowles and McCown on 23-0 loss 00:02:13
Jets head coach Todd Bowles and quarterback Josh McCown talk about what went wrong for the Jets in their 23-0 loss to Denver.

Jets quarterback Josh McCown suffered a broken left hand in Sunday's 23-0 loss to the Denver Broncos, head coach Todd Bowles told reporters.

"It just sucks," an emotional McCown, who was brought to tears at the podium, said after the game.

McCown left the game late in the third quarter with the Jets trailing 20-0. He previously left the game in the first half after scrambling for a first down, but returned two plays later.

He walked off the field and underwent X-rays during the game. It is unclear if the injury will end McCown's season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. McCown will undergo further tests, Bowles said.

THE GAME

The Jets (5-7) face the Denver Broncos (3-9) at Sports Authority field at Mile high in Denver, on Sunday, Dec. 10, at 4:05 p.m. ET.

THE WEATHER:

December in Denver is always a little nicer than I think it's going to be. Temperatures on Sunday should be slightly over 60 with light winds and sunny skies.

WHAT IT MEANS

It means everything to the Jets. They are two games behind the Baltimore Ravens in the race for the last wild-card spot in the AFC with only four games to play, so they can't afford any slip-ups. They also have to hope for some help because just to get to the Ravens, they have to jump over the Chargers, Bills and Raiders, who are all one game ahead of the Jets. It's not going to be easy. It's probably impossible. But the Jets have no shot if they don't win all four of their remaining games.

Instead of sulking over his suspension last week, Jets LB Darron Lee used his time to view the game from a new perspective. 

Lee was suspended by head coach Todd Bowles after Lee arrived late to the team's walk-through last Saturday. The second-year pro hadn't missed a practice before the punishment, but either way, he has learned from his first suspension of his career.

"Yeah, we won, man," Lee told NJ.com's Darryl Slater. "There ain't nothing to be down about. I mean, who cares? This ain't about me. It's about the team."

Just days after leading the Jets to an impressive win which netted him AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors, Jets quarterback Josh McCown was officially named the starter for the rest of the season by coach Todd Bowles.

The 38-year-old completed 26-of-36 passes for 331 yards and three touchdowns against the Chiefs on Sunday. He scored the go-ahead touchdown on a one-yard sneak with 2:15 left to help the Jets keep their playoff hopes alive with a 38-31 win at MetLife Stadium.

After a three-touchdown performance in a comeback victory, Jets QB Josh McCown was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week. 

The Jets were down 14-0 early in the first quarter, but that didn't stop McCown from leading a comeback. Relying on his favorite targets through the air -- Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse -- McCown racked up 331 yards on 26 of 36 for a 72.2 completion percentage. 

Despite throwing for a touchdown, it was McCown using his legs to pick up his other two, including the game-winner. It was his second straight week with a QBR over 100 (109.8), but McCown was only focused on how the team bounced back from the deficit after the game.
