Opening Statement…

Alright, first off this week (Santonio) Holmes had surgery (on Wednesday) (and Josh) Mauga had surgery (today), so both seem to be doing well.  (Darrelle) Revis now, is going to be scheduled for next week.  If you need more details, on all those things, obviously, Bruce (Speight) will let you know. Now, with that being said, I know I had said before about Darrelle, that I would like to wait for him to have surgery whether we place him on IR or not.  Unfortunately, really with our time situation, we had Eric Smith being out this week, we’re going to need that roster spot. When you looked at it, you can designate guys and all that, when I said if it was a 0.002 percent chance, well it’s not that high. In the best interest of really the organization and Darrelle, we will place Darrelle on IR.  It won’t be a designated for return, so that would be it.  I was kind of holding out hope, but the more information we got, the more you realize that that wouldn’t be good for Darrelle either.  We will place him on injured reserve.

Guys that are doubtful for the game, all these guys, Sione Po’uha, Kenrick Ellis, John Conner, Clyde Gates and Eric Smith.  Po’uha with a low back, Kenrick Ellis, knee, Conner, hamstring, Gates, shoulder, Eric Smith, knee.  So all those guys will be doubtful. Nick Mangold was limited today in practice with an ankle. He will be questionable for the game.  (I’m) definitely hopeful he plays. All these other guys are probable. Every one of them practiced full with the exception of Stephen Hill. He was limited today, but all these guys are listed as probable. That’s Aaron Berry with ribs, (Antonio) Cromartie, shoulder, Nick Bellore, shoulder, (Mark) Sanchez, low back, Calvin Pace, achilles, Brandon Moore, hip, (Matt) Slauson knee, Austin Howard, back, Jeff Cumberland, ribs, LaRon Landry, heel, (Jeremy) Kerley, finger and illness, David Harris, hamstring, Bart Scott, toe, Dustin Keller, Bryan Thomas (and) Stephen Hill all with hamstrings. So all of them are probable.  I thought today’s practice (was) really high spirited. Guys were flying around.  I think we’re loose. I like what we’re doing.  (There are) guys still watching video right now, so we’re trying to eliminate the self-inflicted wounds and then make it a physical contest and we’ll see what happens.  With that, it’s been really a good week of practice.

On if Holmes had surgery…

Yes.

On what type of surgery Holmes had…

Like I said, Bruce will handle all the surgery questions.

On if they were optimistic after Holmes’ surgery…

Oh yeah, everything, both the (surgeries), Josh Mauga’s as well.  We’re anticipating, and assuming really, that these guys will be full-go when we come back in the offseason.

On if he thinks Holmes and Mauga will be ready for the offseason…

I do.

On if Revis being placed on IR will take affect the roster this week…

Yes, it will affect the roster this week.

On whether they have made a roster move yet…

Not yet, but it’ll be either later today or tomorrow that we’ll fill that roster spot.

On if any of the players listed as doubtful on the injury list are possible…

I’d say they’re doubtful, and you know us with doubtful, that really means doubtful. (smiling)

On the challenge of playing an opponent that is playing for something bigger than the game…

I think with us, obviously, Chuck’s (Pagano) a personal friend of mine.  We coached together, he coached my brother for years and years, and I just think the world of him.  But with that said, we have our own things we are playing for, and one of those is, we need a win in the worst way. I certainly understand where they’re coming from and the fact they want to win for their coach. We want to win for each other, we want to win for our fans and that’s going to motivate us.

On whether Hill will make an impact on Sunday…

I think he’ll have a big impact because he has that great vertical speed and he has size and I think he has an advantage in both those areas.

On how much they have missed Hill…

Really, he’s been out, what? (joking) Did he miss two games or one game?  I think he only missed the one game, right? Two games. Yeah, he missed two, I’m sorry, that’s right.  I think it will help.  Anytime you have a big fast guy that is going to take two guys with him (it helps). If not, you can throw it to him one-on-one. I think that might not show up on stats, but I think it could be a factor in the game.

On whether he expects Hill to play a lot…

Yes. I don’t know how much specifically, but I definitely expect him to play.

On the run defense…

I think last week, in that second half, it turned around, as you’re going against similar things. You saw a difference between the second half and the first half against the same kind of running plays. So, I think that, hopefully, will be a good sign for us going forward.

On how tough it was for Dustin Keller to be out.…

It’s probably equally as tough on him as it was me and every one of his teammates. That was tough. You sense his frustration because he clearly wanted to get out there. (He did) whatever was asked of him to get back out there. It just was slow to heal. Here’s one of our best-conditioned athletes and he has this injury. It’s just sometimes guys can heal from things faster. He’s had injuries in the past, just like that (and) he’s right back. But it was frustrating for Dustin. I’m just happy that he’s ready to go. We’ll be smart. I don’t think he’ll play 60 snaps, but he’s going to play a lot. He looks really good out there.

On whether keeping Revis on active the roster hampered what they could do with the roster…

Not at all. That’s where you look at the situation now (and see) we really need the roster spot. When Eric went down for the week, we needed the roster spot. That’s why when you look at it, talking to John Mellody and the trainers, it wouldn’t be in Darrelle’s best interest either. There’s no way he’s going to come back and really be able to play at any time during the season.

On if Revis would have gone on injured reserve if Smith didn’t get hurt…

No, I wouldn’t have made the move. I would have probably waited until surgery.

On if he will make Revis the designated for return player…

No, not after getting all the facts.

On the percentage chance that Revis could return…

My exact quote was with a bunch of zeros and a two, but I think it’s really a bunch of zeros period.

On if the facts were based on any new information that has come to light about Revis’ knee…

No, it’s just because that injury, as everybody probably assumed, would take more time than the season to come back from. My thing was, until we really needed that spot, let’s try to wait for him to get surgery and maybe we’ll see. But the more I really paid attention to the doctors and John Mellody, I think the decision was pretty obvious.

On the whether the 53rd spot on the roster is a big deal…

It is this week because we’re going to need to use that spot for the game. We are going to have to use it. I’m not saying that it’s not a big deal, but we need to activate a guy that is going to play this week. I think that’s where we’re at.

On what position the new player on the roster will play…

I think it’s pretty safe to say that we’re going to replace a safety.

On the challenges of facing Reggie Wayne…

There are a lot. Reggie (averages) 15 targets (a game). They move him all over. That’s the whole thing. We can match Cro (Antonio Cromartie) on him, but he’s all over the place, so there are going to be times (where someone else covers him). It’s not like we’re going to play man-coverage every snap. We could match him on him, but it’s tough. They get him the football in a lot of different areas. They can get him little bubble screens. They can get him in the curl. They get him in the flat. They get him vertical. They get him all over the place, (also) crossing routes. He runs the whole gamut and they put him in position. Clearly, they want to get him the football.

On Matt Slauson’s fine…

I don’t really want to get into it. My big thing is what I’ve said from day one and I’ll stick with it. That’s that I know the intent of Matt Slauson was never, never to injure Brian Cushing. It’s unfortunate that happened. Cut blocks and things happen all the time in this league and I know we’re a team that very rarely cuts people. It’s an unfortunate part of the game and obviously you don’t wish that on any player. Matt obviously felt terrible about when the young man (was) injured, as we all did. I don’t care who you’re playing, how competitive and all that, the best thing for this league is your great players are healthy and playing. It’s just an unfortunate injury.

On Drew Stanton saying he would get a chance to play with the Jets if Sanchez struggled…

I don’t remember that. I read part of his comments. I felt that we had our quarterback (and) that we weren’t going to draft a quarterback because I felt really good about our quarterback situation. When the Tebow trade possibility came up, (we thought), “Woah,” we thought it was a great opportunity for our football team to add the Wildcat back into our offense and to get a player like Tim in the building. That’s why we pursued it. With Drew, it wasn’t like we said, “Hey, we got you under contract. You’re going to be here regardless.” We never wanted to mess him over. That wasn’t our intent. When we signed him, we felt really good about him being the number two and McElroy being the three. It just happened that this opportunity came up and that’s why we made the move.

On whether he remembers saying that Stanton will play if Sanchez struggles…

No, I don’t remember that.  I just remember that we were happy to have him. We thought that he’d be a good number two quarterback and that’s why we signed him originally.

Jets WR Robby Anderson catches up with Jeane Coakley to discuss how he's become one of Gang Green's premier offensive weapons this season.

Jets head coach Todd Bowles recently said he won't be switching quarterbacks anytime soon, and current starter Josh McCown agrees with him. 

Despite losing four of their last five games, the Jets are still in the thick of the AFC playoff race as they sit just one game back of the final Wild Card spot. McCown has been leading the Jets' offense all season, and with playoff implications still relevant, he doesn't see a reason to change now. 

"I guess we're both kind of on the same page with that," McCown told NJ.com's Darryl Slater. "There wasn't a scenario where I saw it either. I think it's good to hear it, but we were already on the same page. So I don't know if that was necessarily a new thing."

Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | Archive: The bye week couldn't have gone much better for the Jets, who sat at home getting rest as the AFC playoff picture collapsed around them.

The Jets may have lost four of their last five games, but thanks to a group of increasingly mediocre, imploding, and very flawed teams in their conference, they just can't seem to slip out of the playoff picture. And in part because the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins lost on Sunday, the Jets will return to action this week just one game back in the race for the final wild-card spot in the AFC.

"I think it energizes us more than anything," Jets quarterback Josh McCown said. "We can't look back, obviously. Every team that has lost any game this year across the league would look and wish they had it back, especially if you are in the AFC. But more than anything it energizes us to know that we're still in the thick of things here with the last six weeks to play."

Yes, their schedule is difficult. But at this point, it's possible 8-8 might be good enough to snag the last playoff spot in this top-heavy conference. So the Jets are alive. And here - in current order of the conference standings - is a look at the rag-tag collection of "contenders" that might stand in their way:

When Bilal Powell was drafted in the fourth round of the 2011 draft by the Jets, he was joining a backfield that included the legendary LaDainian Tomlinson. 

Powell only appeared in two games that season but the knowledge he picked up from Tomlinson in the Hall of Famer's final season was invaluable to his career...

Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | ArchiveThe most important football game for New York will not take place at the Meadowlands on Sunday. It will take place 2,800 miles away at the Los Angeles Coliseum, where the future of one or both of the New York teams may be on display Saturday night.

And yes, both the Giants and Jets will both have scouts in the press box watching UCLA take on USC - along with 18 other NFL teams. Their eyes will be fixed on Bruins quarterback Josh Rosen and Trojans quarterback Sam Darnold - the odds-on favorites to be the first and second picks of the 2018 draft.

The Jets, of course, are desperate to find their franchise quarterback. And the Giants are searching for the heir to their 36-year-old quarterback Eli Manning. Right now, the Giants seem to be in the best position to grab the quarterback they desire. But a few more losses over the final six games, and perhaps a trade up, and the Jets could be in position, too.

Jets CB Buster Skrine was fined $48,620 for his hit on Bucs WR DeSean Jackson last Sunday, per SNY's Ralph Vacchiano.

The third quarter hit on Jackson yielded an unnecessary roughness penalty. It was the 11th time this season Skrine has been penalized, which is the most by any defensive player in the NFL. 

It is also the second time Skrine has been fined this season. He was docked for a hit on Raiders RB DeAndre Washington in Week 2.

The Jets put together their most complete performance of the season in an impressive 34-21 win over the Bills on Thursday night, rushing for almost 200 yards and racking up seven sacks and three fumble recoveries in the process.

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

Quarterbacks

With the running game working, Josh McCown didn't need to throw much this week, but he was efficient when he did. He threw just seven passes after halftime, completing five. In the first half, while the game was still in the balance, McCown gave the Jets the lead with a touchdown scramble, completing a drive he'd kept alive himself with another third-down run.

Unlike the previous week, the Jets offense looked stale in their 15-10 loss to the Bucs on Sunday.

Consistency is what the players didn't see from the unit after the game. As the Jets tried to find a rhythm, something would halt them in their tracks. Josh McCown says it's on the veterans like him because they didn't pull the team together. 

"Myself and the other veterans have to pull these [young] guys along, help us find consistency and be better," McCown told Jets.com's Ethan Greenberg. "Because every unit, at some point this year, has played and shown that they can play with the best in the league. But we have to do that for four quarters week in and week out and we didn't do that today. We have to take these next two weeks to get healthy, look in the mirror and figure out ways to do that and be better, so we can make a run down the stretch."

Tennessee fired Butch Jones on Sunday, leaving the school to hire a new coach following the season. No interviews have been scheduled as the talks are just beginning between both sides. 

Rodgers played for the Vols from 1988-1991 was he was a linebacker/defensive end. He was also born in Humboldt, Tennessee. 

The Vols do not need permission from the Jets to talk to Rodgers about the position.

After the win against Buffalo, there was a lot of hype about the "resurgent" Jets and some talk of Todd Bowles as a coach of the year candidate. However, after yesterday's dispiriting loss, the reality is that the Jets have lost four of five with their only win coming over a Bills team whose 37-point loss to the Saints yesterday suggests they have been overrated. Heading to the bye, it's probably time to reset our expectations.

After playing their best game of the season against the Bills last Thursday, the Jets looked lethargic in their 15-10 loss to the Bucs on Sunday. 

It didn't look like the same Jets energy that ran all over MetLife Stadium a week prior. Head coach Todd Bowles noticed a lack of spirit to start the game, and it would last until the final whistle. 

"You've got to show up every week in this league or you get it handed to you," Bowles told The Post's Brian Costello. "We didn't show up today."

Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick got his first start on Sunday against his former team, and made the best of it with a victory. 

"It was special to me to be able to win that game," Fitpatrick told NJ.com's Connor Hughes.

Fitzpatrick led the Bucs to a 15-10 win as the Jets suffered their sixth loss of the season. It wasn't his best performance as he finished 17-for-34 for 187 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. But his fourth-quarter touchdown pass to Charles Sims would be the deciding score, and the feat Fitzpatrick was hoping to achieve.

What a waste of an opportunity.

That's the only way to describe that hideous, 15-10 loss the Jets had on Sunday to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Jets had showed so much promise in recent weeks. They were 10 days removed from their best win of the season. They were getting everyone excited as they sat on the edge of the AFC playoff picture.
