On coming back to the Jets…

It means a lot to be back. I had some great times here. I feel like I left a small part of myself here when I left. To be back is great. I think I can come back and just provide a little bit of a (veteran leadership). I’m going into year eight. I’ll be 30 in a month. Don’t tell anybody. There’s some pride, some of the things we had last time I was here was fun and just getting after it.

On if having a rapport with Mark Sanchez helps…

It does. Mark and I have stayed in touch since I left. The big thing with us is that we’re friends off the field. We spend time together off the field, so we know each other a little bit. When you get in the locker room or in the meeting room or the field, that rapport helps to have that trust.

On if he was surprised to be back…

I was (surprised) to say the least. I always wanted to come back, but after this offseason, not really getting a phone call, I kind of thought that was it. I moved on mentally. To get back and kind of be in the same situation we were in in 2009, a lot of guys weren’t here but the guys that were, like you said, anything is possible. We didn’t even think we were going to get into the playoffs and low and behold we got to the AFC Championship.

On if he had to apologize for the tweet directed at the organization…

I didn’t have to apologize but I chose to. It was a statement that was made at the heat of the moment. You know how that goes. We’ve moved past that and I’m here and I’m ready.

On his health…

The health is good. Obviously, I have a hamstring tweak but we’ve been getting after it with the rehab. The training staff is doing a tremendous job in the day and a half that I’ve been here. They’re really getting in there and doing what they do best. I definitely think I have a high chance of going on Monday night.

On his participation in practice…

I got out there and you saw me. I went though some individual (drills) with Coach Sanjay (Lal). I ran a couple of routes with Mark (Sanchez) and Tim (Tebow) in there. It felt ok. I was able to do some things. It’s definitely a step in the right direction, a good sign, seeing as though it’s Thursday and we have about three days or so.

On if Pete Carroll mischaracterized his injury…

I don’t think Pete has an M.D., so no. I’m just joking. That was what they thought. That was his opinion and everybody is entitled to their (opinion). The Jets have a different opinion, so we’re moving based off of our doctors more so, not the coach and not myself. We’re moving off the doctors and the doctors are giving me kind of a blueprint on what we should do and how we should carry out the progression.

On when he became injured…

Two weeks ago. After the Chicago game I was waived injured. I didn’t get another week to be on the (injury) report.

On how he became injured…

It was the last play of regulation when Golden Tate scored. Well, it wasn’t the last play of regulation, but it was the last offensive play in regulation, Golden Tate scored. I was running a corner route and I got pushed off my route. I put the left foot in there to catch myself.

On when he found out the Jets were interested in him again…

To be honest, my agent knows how I am. I get pretty excited about things. I actually heard about it more so on Twitter and ESPN before my agent actually called me and put some validity to the situation. I really didn’t know for sure until maybe two hours before it happened.

On if he thought there was a chance he might not come back to the Jets because of his tweet…

I already thought there was no way that the Jets were interested. I figured with last year’s season and kind of how it went and this offseason, me rehabbing and getting after it and putting it out there on Twitter how good rehab was going, to not get a phone call or an invite to come in and work out and see what was going on, that was when I just mentally (thought), ‘Alright, it’s not going to happen. Let’s move on and get myself prepared for other situations.’ That was kind of when I was done with it. After the tweet, it was like, ‘Yeah I burnt that bridge.’

On if the Jets feel like home…

First and foremost, I had good success here. We went to two AFC Championships. It was very fun times for the team, my family and myself. I feel like I came here and gave a lot to the organization in terms of myself and I feel like it was well received. I felt as though this was home. I feel like I know all of the people in administration, by name. I know their background. I know the janitors. I know Ronaldo. I’m very cool with people here. I know everybody. It just feels like home and to leave it kind of hurts a little bit. It’s kind of like leaving college. You miss college. That’s just kind of how it was.

On if he believes he will play Monday…

I personally hope that I can go, that I’m good to (play). I hope I can go, but just based on how it’s progressing, I think I’ll be able to go on Monday just based on the progression I see. Once again, I don’t have my (M.D.).

On if there was awkwardness when he saw Mike Tannenbaum…

One thing about being here and like I said, the relationship that we developed here is that we’re all kind of goofy amongst each other. Everybody has a weird, funny or cool interaction. There actually wasn’t a moment of awkwardness. It could have been, but the kind of relationship that we developed while I was here, is being open. I used to call him Mr. Tannenbaum (and he would say), “No, I’m Mike.” Cracking jokes and them understanding them. There never was a moment of awkwardness. I met him for the first time, he was in the cafeteria yesterday, and I saw him and he was just as happy as me or so it seemed. The awkwardness wasn’t there.

On what gives him confidence that he can be the same receiver he was last time he was here…

Turn back the clock? Come on. I’m 29 (years old). Next month is January, I’ll acutally be 30 in February. I felt good this offseason after I had knee surgery in January and I rehabbed very hard down at the University of Miami. We got after it and I was in shape this year in training camp with Seattle and basically so far this season, with the exception of the last week and a half. I was in great shape. I’m trying new things. I feel great. I wish I could have showed it more or had the chance to show it more, but now I do. I feel good. I feel like I still have the same speed. I feel like I still have the same strength, if not better. I still have that understanding of the game. Being in year eight, I’ve seen a lot. I’m ready. You’ll get a chance to see when I get out there.

On if he’s paid attention to the quarterback situation…

It’s kind of hard not to pay attention to it considering it’s surrounding. I’ve had a chance to pay attention to it a little bit in terms of what ESPN said or what talk sports (radio) said or the comments you’re hearing here and there. I haven’t had the chance to call Mark and say, “Hey Mark, what’s going on?” I haven’t had the chance to talk to a player. It’s basically just what ESPN says.

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.

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."

"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.

Jeane Coakley talks with Jets head coach Todd Bowles about the quarterback situation and the team’s recent loss to the Patriots at home.

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.

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."
