Jets Wide Out Brandon Marshall Says Painkillers Made Him Forget One of His Best Games

Brandon Marshall

In a conference call with San Francisco Bay Area reporters ahead of Sunday’s Jets game against the 49ers, New York Jets wide out Brandon Marshall made a rather bizarre admission, talking about barely remembering his three-touchdown performance against the Niners in 2014 when he was with the Bears.

The wide out said he can’t recall much about that game due to a ‘painkiller fog,’ according to Ryan Lazo of the New York Post.

“I don’t really remember much about that game, because I worked really hard to get back from a high ankle [sprain],” Marshall said. “I’ll say it: I took a couple of pain pills that masked the pain.”

Marshall was injured just 10 days before that game, suffering a high ankle sprain, but in the game for Chicago he had 48 yards and three touchdowns on five catches.

“I was supposed to be out four to six weeks,” Marshall said. “I don’t remember much from that game. I just remember catching those balls and that was pretty much it.”

Jets Coach Todd Bowles Admits He Screwed Up the Way He Changed QB’s Monday Night

Todd Bowles

The Jets season has been a disaster pretty much from day one, and now there appears there’s issues even when it comes to trying to communicate changing quarterbacks, as Jets coach Todd Bowles admitted he botched the exchange,

Rich Cimini of ESPN New York has the story.

Bowles was so busy tearing into his team after an embarrassing 41-10 loss to the Indianapolis Colts that he failed to inform Ryan Fitzpatrick he was being replaced by Bryce Petty for the final four games.

Fitzpatrick learned of his permanent demotion from assistant coaches, moments before he faced the media. It made for an awkward news conference late Monday night because Fitzpatrick didn’t seem to have the details.

Reporters already knew because they heard it minutes earlier from Bowles.

“I’d been meaning to tell him and I got tied up with a few things,” the coach said Tuesday.

He acknowledged he could’ve handled it better.

“I probably could’ve and he tried to cover for me,” Bowles said. “Like I said, I had a lot on my mind and got some things off my chest, and it kind of went over the wrong way. I’ll talk to him [Wednesday morning].”

What if the Jets Logo Was Made in the Likeness of President Elect Donald Trump?

Donald Trump

Like it or not, next month Donald Trump will be the new President of the United States, and one thing that can’t be denied is it’s going to be an interesting four years in our country.

There’s been plenty of fun poked at the President elect, and one site – Uproxx, has taken it upon themselves to design every NFL logo in the make of our President elect.

Check out what they think the logo of the Jets will look like made in the likeness of Trump!

Andrew Luck Nearly Perfect as Colts Crush Jets 41-10

Indianapolis Colts v New York Jets

Andrew Luck was nearly perfect in his return from a concussion, throwing for four touchdowns, three to Dwayne Allen, in the Indianapolis Colts’ 41-10 romp Monday night past the inept New York Jets.

Not that Luck had to work very hard against the hosts, who were booed by a much-less-than-filled MetLife Stadium almost from the outset.

Luck missed last week’s loss to Pittsburgh, cleared the NFL’s concussion protocol on the weekend, and came back in style with a prime-time performance. He lifted Indianapolis (6-6) into a tie for the lead in the AFC South with Tennessee and Houston.

Allen and T.Y. Hilton were his main targets as he went 22 of 28 for 278 yards, and they received little opposition from the Jets (3-9).

Darrelle Revis Done? Jets CB Reportedly “Doesn’t Want to Play Anymore”

Darrelle Revis

Darrelle Revis announced this summer that he was “going to play until the wheels fall off.”

The Jets cornerback’s decline is due, in part, to his questionable drive and lack of commitment and discipline to maintain his body.

“He’s done,” a Revis confidant told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. “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.”

Although it’s impossible to get inside Revis’ head, people close to him sense that the guy, who once ate, slept and breathed football is gone forever, replaced by this sad version.

While he can’t say for certain what Revis is thinking, the Revis confidant put the cornerback’s season this way: “He tanked it.”

Revis has waxed poetic about his love for this franchise. He wanted to be a “Jet for life.” He was supposedly downright giddy about “coming home” after two seasons in Tampa and New England.

The Jets will have to make a decision on Revis’ future by the second day of the 2017 league year (March) when a non-guaranteed $2 million roster bonus is due.

Revis has suggested that he’s amenable to moving to safety in the future, but there’s no guarantee that the Jets would want to pay him $6 million to play a new position and he’d actually be a good safety given that he’s repeatedly shied away from contact this season.

Jets Can’t Close Out; Fall to Brady and Patriots 22-17 to Drop to 3-8

New England Patriots v New York Jets

Tom Brady was hobbled, yet efficient as ever with the game on the line and time on the clock.

Playing with an ailing knee, Brady tied Peyton Manning for most wins by a quarterback in NFL history, getting his 200th by throwing a go-ahead 8-yard touchdown pass to Malcolm Mitchell with 1:56 left, leading the New England Patriots to a 22-17 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday.

It was the 50th win for Brady after facing a fourth-quarter deficit or tie.

“The quarterback’s job is to win,” coach Bill Belichick said. “He’s won a lot. That’s good. I’m glad he’s our quarterback.”

Trailing 17-16 with 5:04 left and the ball on the Patriots 17, Brady led a solid drive by completing six passes. After James White stretched for 4 yards on fourth-and-4, a 25-yard catch by Chris Hogan put the ball at the 8. Brady then zipped a pass to Mitchell to put the Patriots (9-2) ahead.

“We didn’t play as well as we wanted to,” Brady said, “but we made the plays when we needed to.”

Where Will The Jets Finish After Remodelling Their Roster From The 2015 Season?

New England Patriots v New York Jets

The New York Jets are now hallway through their 16 games of the regular NFL season. From the eight games they have a record of three wins and five losses. This isn’t as good compared to their 5-3 record at the same stage last season, and it wouldn’t be surprising for Jets fans to be a little disheartened at the time being. Last season, they finished seventh in the AFC Conference, one place outside the Wild Card spots. Coach, Todd Bowles would have been hoping for a big improvement this season, but as they currently sit in 12th place, they are quite a way off with much work still to do.

Current Form

The Jets hit a particularly bad patch of form, losing four games in a row through games 3-6. The games lost against the Kansas City Chiefs and the Arizona Cardinals were particularly bad, with the Jets scoring only three points on each occasion. Their poor form has been the focus of many NFL blogs, with many fans bringing up the fact that Ryan Fitzpatrick had only thrown 3 for 14 for 30 yards in the first half against the Cleveland Browns. Despite the criticism, the Jets did manage to find the performance they needed, scoring 24 points in the second half to win the game 31-28. This result came hot on the heels of a 24-16 win over the Baltimore Ravens. With two wins on the bounce, it would be great if this led the way to a change in form.

Quarterback

At the start of the season, Jets players and fans alike had genuine aspirations of building on the ten wins from last season and reaching the playoffs. Quarterback, Ryan Fitzpatrick has accepted that he deserves most of the blame as he hasn’t been playing at his best, and sadly, a team can only perform as well as their best QB. Despite his poor form, Fitzpatrick has played every game with has left a number of fans outraged. Even Joe Namath (Jets legend and Pro Football Hall of Famer) has been calling for Bryce Petty to take Fitzpatrick’s place. Petty has been with Jets since 2015 and never taken a snap in the NFL, if he was given a chance, what’s the worst that could happen?

Up Next

Miami Dolphins are the next opponents for the Jet who have played one game less due to their bye week, the Jets get theirs in week 11. The Dolphins defeated the Buffalo Bills in week 7 (only their third of the season) and it was recently announced that their game next season against the New Orleans Saints will take place at Wembley Stadium as part of the annual International Series. Then they face a visit from the Los Angeles Rams who are in a similar dire straits with a 3-4 record, and they’ve also just had their bye week. Competition for the Wild Card spots is currently very tight, and two big wins for the Jets could put them straight back in the playoff picture.

Jets Lose Battle of Field Goals to Rams 9-6 To Drop to 3-7

Los Angeles Rams v New York Jets

Alec Ogletree intercepted Bryce Petty with just under 2 minutes left, lifting the Rams to a 9-6 victory over the Jets in a snoozer Sunday.

Petty made his first NFL start in place of an injured Ryan Fitzpatrick, but couldn’t get much going against the Rams defense.

After getting the ball with 2:55 remaining and down by three, Petty tried to lead the Jets (3-7) down the field. But on second-and-7 from the 42, Petty’s pass to Quincy Enunwa was picked off by Ogletree and Enunwa tried to wrestle it away from the linebacker to no avail.

Greg Zuerlein kicked three field goals, including a go-ahead 34-yarder with 6:52 left, helping the Rams (4-5) snap a four-game losing streak and avoid their first five-game skid since weeks 9-13 last season.
