Opening Statement…

(Mark) Sanchez, looking right now, he’s still our starter right now. (laughter) So I’m going to put that out there like, ‘Wow, that got a little air time I think.’ I mean it’s funny because in all seriousness, he’s our starting quarterback and it doesn’t change and things and it is amazing though, how things take off a little bit. I thought it was a great practice except there was a little scary moment in practice. Eric Smith goes up to knock a ball down, comes down on his leg.  Luckily, it’s just a sprained knee, but I think Eric is probably going to miss this week with it.  I’ll be honest. I thought it was going to be much worse than that.  It’s actually good news, its bad news he probably won’t go this week, but it was good news that it was just a sprained knee.   But that was one of those things where you’re kind of, ‘Okay, I think we’ve had enough of these.’  Fortunately, it doesn’t look like it’s going to be too long.  With (an) update on Kenrick Ellis, I know his MCL, it looks like he could be out a significant amount of time, maybe four to six weeks. We’re hoping with him, it won’t be more than four, but we’ll see.  I was hoping he could be back sooner, but we’ll find out there. Guys that won’t practice today will be Sione (Po’uha) with his low back again, he’s itching but I don’t think he’ll practice today.  Kenrick, obviously.  John Conner still with the hamstring, Nick Mangold with his ankle, Clyde Gates, shoulder, and obviously, Eric Smith with a knee.  Guys that will be limited Bart Scott, toe, Bryan Thomas hamstring, Stephen Hill, hamstring, Dustin Keller, hamstring, Jeremy Kerley, now he may be full but I’m listing him down as limited right now until we see otherwise. David Harris also with a hamstring, may be limited, but he may also be full, but right now I’ll just list him as limited.  Everybody else on this list will be full. That’s Aaron Berry, ribs, (Antonio) Cromartie, shoulder, (Nick) Bellore, shoulder, Sanchez, low back, Calvin Pace, achilles, Brandon Moore, hip, (Matt) Slauson knee, Austin Howard, back, Jeff Cumberland, ribs, and (LaRon) Landry, heel.

On if Jeremy Kerley is listed as limited due to a finger injury…

No, it was a finger, (but) I think the finger’s fine. He plays with a splint.  He had a little illness or whatever, so he may be full, but I’m putting it down as limited now until we see him out there.

On who he expects to play Sunday that is not practicing today…

I think Mangold.  I think Nick will probably be able to go.  Sione with a low back, we’ll see. I know he wants to go but that’s probably a questionable guy. Conner, I don’t see him going this week, with a hamstring (injury). Gates with a shoulder, not totally sure on that one either.  But, we’ll see.

On whether he has heard from the league regarding Matt Slauson’s block on Brian Cushing…

No, it was news to me.  I heard that the league is looking into that. Again, (on) my tape, when I saw it, and now I’ve seen the TV copies and all that. Obviously, it’s an unfortunate thing and we’ve talked about that. I know the intent of Matt Slauson was not to injure Brian Cushing, without question. We wouldn’t try to injure anybody, but a great player like Brian (getting injured) is really an unfortunate thing. So, it’s obviously in their hands.  I know the intent of our player though.

On if he is doing anything different in practice to improve the running game…

I mean, outside we’ve got to block and all that. There’s no like magic scheme to try to run.  Like, ‘Oh, we’re going to run the bend play, or whatever,’ like that’s going to get it going. We just have to block, we have to open things up and get some running room. That’s the main thing. I know there’s a lot of criticism that’s directed at Shonn (Greene) specifically. I don’t know if you have whoever as your running back, we have to create some running room. I think that’s the big thing. That’s what we’re working on.  I know we’re working on it and I think we’ll see improvements. I do. 

On if it has been a big adjustment for the line with the coaching change on offense…

We probably run a few more gap runs now than we did maybe last year, but I think it’s very similar.  Really, (with) every team there’s zone runs, there’s gap runs and all that stuff, but it’s still about getting movement and it’s about widening the hole if we can and getting our guy to get to the second level.

On whether the rotation at left guard is a disruption to the offensive line…

Well, Vlad (Vladimir Ducasse) is part of that unit. I think when you look at that and so is Jason Smith. Guys that are up, they’re all part of that unit.  The big thing (is) we all sing out of the same hymnal.  I think that’s kind of maybe overblown a little bit. I think that’s probably a bigger issue maybe in pass protection, with communication. When you approach it like, these seven guys make up that unit and they have to know each other and you’re not going to know anything about each other if you don’t play with the guy. I think this is an opportunity to get guys (to know each other) (and) Vlad’s earned that right to play. It’s not a whole lot different than rotating a defensive lineman or whoever. To become comfortable like you’re talking about, you have to be in there with each other and I think these guys are.  Like I said, Vlad is part of that unit.

On if he will rotate other running backs with Greene…

I think we’ve rotated.  I think (Bilal) Powell has really earned the right to play some, I don’t think there’s any doubt about that. He’s been absolutely tremendous in pass protection, I mean absolutely tremendous. He’s shown some ability to run and things.  In an ideal world, you’d have two or three guys that you feel really good about. Have I lost confidence in Shonn Greene? The answer is no.  I think we just keep giving him the ball. He’s working extremely hard.  I just think it’s a matter of time before he starts popping. We all know, once he gets rolling, that the confidence (goes up).  The whole team’s lifted when your big back is running.

On whether Greene is frustrated with the run game…

I don’t sense it.  I sense just, (that) he’s working.  I see him really working, like he’s wanting it. That’s kind of the feeling that I get, like he’s wanting that ball under his arm. I don’t think he’s lost any confidence whatsoever. I just think he’s really trying to get rolling.  I think he made a couple (of) big runs in that game this past week, one was on that screen pass. There’s that power that he brings, he can run you over. Hopefully, we’ll get him rolling this week.  I believe with the way we’re working, I believe it’s going to get better.

On why the team doesn’t use the no-huddle offense…

We certainly could. That’s something that we could definitely look at.  A lot of it, you can go no-huddles out of certain personnel groupings and things like that.  I think, with no other better reason, it’s like, last week we’re playing with a receiver that just got here for three days or four days, whatever it was, and he’s forced into being the third receiver.  You’ve had some different cases. You think Dustin’s going to play and then he has a setback (and) can’t play. You have a brand new fullback in, who by the way, I thought had a tremendous game, with Lex (Hilliard). You can’t teach everything in one week. It does, it sometimes puts you on your heels a little bit in calling defense and that’s something certainly we look at.

On whether Gates will play on Sunday…

Again, I’m not sure. This one, I don’t want to rule him out by any stretch, because he still has that speed and all that.  Some guys respond differently off of injuries. It’s a shoulder. Could he play? We’ll see.  I think he could.

On if there are only four wide receivers if Gates is out for the game…

I think we’ve got four receivers, right?  We’d have four receivers anyway.

On if Hill will play on Sunday…

Yes.

On how Gates injured his shoulder…

I’m not even (sure), I just know it’s a shoulder.  It’s not anything that’s going to require surgery or anything like that. It (will) probably (just take a little time) to heal or something. As we looked at it, we don’t think it’s going to be a major injury, which obviously, (is) one that would require surgery.  (It’s) probably major to him, but (not a major injury). 

On if this is the most injuries he has experienced at linebacker…

We’re definitely banged up, losing (Josh) Mauga (and) having Bart fight through a toe injury that most people wouldn’t play with.

On Harris and Thomas being injured…

Yeah, both of them dealing with the hamstrings and all that.  There’s no doubt. We’re a little beat up.  Again, no excuses. We’re fortunate that we have a lot of depth at linebacker. We feel good about our depth. (We have) guys like Demario Davis stepping up (and) playing in expanded roles. He’s a young man that has a tremendous future in front of him, and even right now, doing some of the things he’s doing and also doing a great job on (special) teams.

On Cromartie matching up with Reggie Wayne…

It’s going to be tough. I think if (Wayne) just sat out there where he used to be, I think it’d be a little easier.  We’d be able to identify where he is but they’re moving him around a little bit.  It’s kind of hard to get your hands on him. They put him in the slot, they put him in a lot of bunches, they put him in what we call snugs, which is a two-man bunch. They don’t want you to get your hands on him, and that’s something that obviously, we’re going to try to do.  They’re not just going to let (Cromartie) go out there and ‘D him up’ from the line of scrimmage.  They’re going to move him.  But, that should be a really good matchup.

On whether Cromartie has elevated his performance in the absence of Darrelle Revis…

No question. I think when he made the statement he did, it’s because he believes it.  And quite honestly, he has that kind of athletic ability where he could be the best corner in the league.  I think he definitely has stepped up. I see it in the meeting rooms. He’s even taken some of that leadership deal over with that backend. He understands Darrelle’s a great football player, but I think he took it as, “I have to step up now.” We’ve always said he has more ability than probably anybody I’ve ever seen at that position, him and Deion (Sanders).  He’s starting to play that way.  When we play against Miami, (Brian) Hartline’s targeted nine times with one catch.  He goes out and has 250 yards receiving the next week.  He’s matching up against guys. He’s doing a great job.  Andre Johnson with one catch for 15 yards, that’s impressive to say the least.  Now this one, Reggie’s going to catch his share, there’s no doubt, it’s not necessarily going to be a true isolation though because of where they put him.  I’m happy we got Cro to say the least.

On why Cromartie doesn’t play at the same level every game…

That’s an interesting thing because you’re exactly right. He has that ability to be the best, with Revis being out, I don’t disagree with him thinking he has that kind of ability because he does. Now (with) the focus and everything else, he is really elevating his game. I truly believe that.

On Cromartie as a receiver…

(He’s) not just a corner. Let’s face it. He was the second-best receiver on our team. (joking) After he went deep, (I thought), ‘Shoot man, he might have sold himself short.’ (joking) (laughter) I remember when he was at Florida State and I mentioned this before, at his pro day, he worked out as a corner (and) he also worked out as a receiver. Obviously, you never had tape to back it up, but watching him run those drills, he looked like a first-round receiver. That’s the ability he has. He has size, speed, change of direction skills and great ball skills. Even going into it, when we put him over there, it was in case you only have four receivers up (and) somebody goes down, you need a guy that can step in there. That’s basically what we do. We’re kind of training him for that. We’ve had to use him. Just like we kind of trained Joe (McKnight) for it, in an emergency situation to go play defensive back, I think Joe can do that.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY.tv:

Darrelle Revis has made it pretty clear that he intends to play in 2017, telling SNY "I still have a lot of football to play." He even thinks he can still play football at a high level.

But at what position? And for whom? Neither of those answers are clear just yet. And though it's certainly possible that the Jets will simply part ways with the greatest cornerback they've ever had, a team source insisted not to rule Revis out of the Jets' 2017 plans just yet.

Later, SNY NFL Insider Ralph Vacchiano joins the show to talk about his Thursday conversation with Darrelle Revis at Florham Park, and to share his thoughts on Revis' future with the Jets.

Brian Bassett:

Welp. Let's face it brother, this season has been a bust.

Maybe it is just me, but it seems like the Faustian bargain made by Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Jets on the eve of training camp signaled the end. Since then the trajectory of this team has been steadily downward: horrifying play at QB, the season-ending injury to Eric Decker, the immolation of Darrelle Revis as "player who gives a damn" … it has been rough. Hell, even Muhammad Wilkerson's reputation looks to be streaking down the Alpine Slide at Action Park!

But since we're Jets fans, we are notorious gluttons for punishment. So rather than dwell on all the bad stuff … what causes for hope do you have from what you've seen this season, Bent?

New York Jets offensive coordinator Chan Gailey said young quarterbacks Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg need to get all the reps they can get to continue to develop.

Though the Jets have decided to turn back to Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback for the foreseeable future, Gailey said Petty "needs all of the work he can get," according to NJ.com's Connor Hughes.

"It helps to play in games. ... The probability in games, you've got a lot better idea of what's going to happen," Gailey said. "In practice, you only have about a 75 percent probability of how they're going to be, how they're to play, and how they're going to progress."

Petty has started just one game -- a 9-6 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 10 -- this season before head coach Todd Bowles opted to make Fitzpatrick, who led New York to 10 wins last season, the starter again.

GEICO SportsNite: Darrelle Revis 00:01:34
Ralph Vacchiano reports from the Jets facility on the Darrelle Revis rumors of him possibly retiring after the 2016 season.

Darrelle Revis, the embattled Jets cornerback, insists that he has given no thought to retirement despite his age and his struggles this season, and that his love for the game of football is as strong as ever. In fact, in an interview with SNY.tv on Thursday, he said any questions about how much he still wants to play are "really bizarre."

That was the 31-year-old Revis' response to the latest round of criticism in what has become a miserable season for the future Hall of Famer. He has struggled on the field in a season he admits is "definitely not" up to his personal standards, and the shots he's taken in the media have been relentless at times.

The latest came in a report in the New York Daily News on Wednesday that quoted a "confidant" of the cornerback saying "If he had his way he'd be done right now. He doesn't want to play anymore."

Jets CB Darrelle Revis would be done playing right now if he had his way, a confidant told Manish Mehta of the Daily News.

"He's done," the confidant said. "If he had his way, he'd be done right now. He doesn't want to play anymore. He's made a lot of money."

While Muhammad Wilkerson has struggled to put up strong numbers on the stat sheet this season, head coach Todd Bowles has confidence the defensive end will have a good end to the season. 

"He's still getting the kinks out of it sometimes, but he's feeling a lot better now, so I expect to see a lot better Mo," Bowles told reporters following Wednesday's practice.

Jets head coach Todd Bowles spoke to the media following Wednesday's practice. Here is what we learned...

  • It's still uncertain whether or not injured center Nick Mangold will play on Monday night against the Colts. 
  • With lack of creating turnovers, the team has been working hard in practice to get them. "We [are] trying everything we can to get them," Bowles said. "It's just not falling our way right now." 
  • WR Devin Smith has returned to practice and has no restrictions on what he can do. So far, according to Bowles, Smith is almost caught up with the offense.

WR Brandon Marshall wants to finish his career with the Jets, the wide receiver told reporters on Monday.

"Obviously (I have) no plans on retiring, no plans on switching teams," Marshall said. "Would love to stay here and retire as a Jet."

The Jets acquired Marshall and a seventh round draft pick from the Bears for a fifth round pick prior to the 2015 NFL Draft. In his first season with New York, Marshall caught 109 passes for 1,502 yards and 14 touchdowns.

"You never know in this business," Marshall admitted about the chances he will be back in New York next season.

It's the same old quarterback for the same old Jets.

Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain the Jets starting quarterback, Todd Bowles announced on Monday, and he indicated it wasn't even a difficult decision. It doesn't matter to the Jets coach that Fitzpatrick is almost certainly not coming back next season, nor does it apparently matter to him that the 3-8 Jets have nothing left to play for this year.

Fitzpatrick, Bowles said, gives the Jets the best chance to win and Bowles still thinks that's important. So at least for now, the future - and Bryce Petty and rookie Christian Hackenberg - will have to wait.

By the end of the game, Patriots fans had taken over the Meadowlands and no one was surprised. Most of the Jets fans sadly headed for the exits, having seen this ending before.

Of course the Jets had a chance to beat the Patriots, and of course it ended with the ball getting swatted out of Ryan Fitzpatrick's hands. And of course Tom Brady, given enough time -- or any time at all -- engineered a game-winning drive. That's the way it goes for teams who have franchise quarterbacks on their roster. That's the way it goes, far too often against the Jets.

Bent: This was as frustrating a loss as the Jets have experienced all season. While it's easy to take consolation from the fact that the game was essentially meaningless and that losing the game might even be for the best in the long run, it's always unbearable to lose to the Patriots. 

That's especially true when the Jets arguably played well enough to win comfortably...

Vacc's 3 Keys: Patriots-Jets 00:04:03
SNY NFL Insider Ralph Vacchiano identifies three keys for a Jets upset over the New England Patriots on Sunday.

THE GAME: The New England Patriots (8-2) at the Jets (3-7) at the Meadowlands on Sunday, Nov. 27 at 4:25 p.m. ET.

THE WEATHER: There's a storm front coming … but not soon enough to impact this game. Unfortunately for the Jets, since weather is a great equalizer, it'll be a nice, brisk day with temperatures in the low-to-mid 40s and moderate winds (although again, unfortunately for the Jets, probably not strong enough to impact the game).

WHAT IT MEANS: In terms of this season? Nothing. In terms of the future? Nothing. But the Jets, with their decision to go back to veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick, are going all-in on one, feel-good day for themselves and their fans. Yeah, sure, they're not mathematically eliminated yet. But Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy aren't walking through that door, so let's stick to reality. The Jets want to beat the Patriots to have one happy day before the reality of their December death march towards the end of their season kicks in.

With the Jets falling to 3-7 before the bye, a chance to play spoiler is about all they have to play for over the final six games of the year. While many fans are already looking ahead to next year, the Jets' coaching staff will still be going all out to give a competitive effort. However, it might be hard to motivate their players following a frustrating first half of the season.

GEICO SportsNite: Jets-Pats 00:01:51
The Jets discuss their upcoming divisional matchup with Tom Brady and the Patriots at MetLife Stadium on Sunday.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - There are many reasons why Todd Bowles gave a stiff arm to the future this week and decided to ride with Ryan Fitzpatrick as his quarterback on Sunday. The most important one, he's said all along, is that Fitzpatrick gives the Jets their best shot at a win.

And boy, in the middle of this miserable, lost season, would a win over the New England Patriots feel good.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Tom Brady missed practice for the Patriots with a knee injury on Wednesday, and all of New England is now waiting to exhale. But there's no reason for Jets fans to bother holding their breath. The Jets, as you all know, just aren't lucky enough for Brady to miss this game.

As far as the Jets are concerned, though, that's just fine. At this point, they'd rather see Brady in the lineup. Because if they're going to pull off this meaningless upset just so they can feel a little better about themselves in their lost season, they may as well do it with the Patriots at full strength.

New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles said he doesn't have an idea of when center Nick Mangold will return from his ankle injury that has kept him out for the past three games, according to the New York Post's Brian Costello.

Mangold, 32, did not practice Wednesday and has missed three games in a row for the first time in his career. He has been in and out of a walking boot for the past few weeks, which has clouded Bowles' idea of when he may return.

"For me, if you're not practicing, you're not improving," Bowles said. "I haven't seen him run yet ... he's not doing anything that I see."

Belichick, who coached Revis in the 2014 season, said the 31-year-old still has the ability to make plays to beat teams.
