In his introductory press conference, new Jets general manager John Idzik showed himself to be whatever you want to make of him.
So Mike Tannenbaum is gone as the Jets' general manager.(3)
Jenrry Mejia has been victimized, and his development stunted, by the turmoil above him within the Mets' organization.(1)
It’s a sentiment you hear every year: The Jets need a dominant pass rusher off the edge.
The hand-wringing about the Jets' pass rush is a bit overstated but generally valid: They ranked 13th in sack percentage in 2011, 8th in 2010, and 15th in 2009. They have done so despite a scheme that has traditionally been blitz-heavy, although, as ESPN repeatedly flashed during its draft coverage last night, the Jets ranked just 12th in blitz percentage last year, down from 3rd and 1st the previous two years.
Each time the Jets or Giants play a football game, Capital will write about a home-team member who took part in it. This post is about Darrelle Revis, who played cornerback in the Jets’ 29-14 loss to the Giants.
It was appropriate that one of the best games Darrelle Revis ever played was also one in which the Jets’ playoff hopes likely went down the tubes. Whatever hand-wringing or trash-talking or sky-is-falling vibe surrounds the Jets, Revis has always been a rock.

If yesterday’s warts-and-all victory brought the Jets relief but not satisfaction, the same can be said of the performance of Antonio Cromartie, their supremely talented cornerback who has a propensity for the untimely mistake.

Finally, a win for the Jets that perfectly matched their blueprint.
It was of the “gritty” variety, as the Jets came back from two separate 11-point deficits. It featured a defense that clamped down in the second half, led by the performance of inimitable cornerback Darrelle Revis, who somehow gained four times as many yards with one interception return than he gave up all day to the man he was guarding.
Each day, the New York tabloids vie to sell readers at the newsstands on outrageous headlines, dramatic photography, and, occasionally, great reporting. Who is today's winner?
