“He stayed poised,” defensive tackle Gerald McCoy said. “I was sure when I was hitting him early on that he would get rattled. He kept hanging in. I said, ‘How many more times do I (have) to hit you?’”
“I’m never going to panic,” Smith said. “I’m never in panic mode. It’s a game. It’s something that I’ve been playing my entire life.”

To further brighten your day, I'm told Zach Sudfeld pulled a hamstring yesterday. Didn't play in 4th quarter. Hooman only healthy TE
FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports Shane Vereen is undergoing wrist surgery on Monday and will miss "a few weeks."Vereen gutted out the injury against the Bills, but Monday's surgery will sideline him for what sounds like 2-3 games. Per Glazer, Vereen broke a "small bone" in the wrist on his first play of Sunday's win over Buffalo. He experienced "numbness" in the joint after the game because the cracked bone sits directly on a nerve. Look for Stevan Ridley to regain his feature back role and keep it for the remainder of the season.

I'm confident Ridley will respond just fine as the feature RB...but they sure could use Danny Woodhead.

That just leaves Hooman as a proper TE. Develin can fill in as a TE, but they're going to have to reshape the offense for a few weeks.

The Jets only have a handful of days to prepare for the New England Patriots , but Muhammad Wilkerson says that’s enough, especially with head coach Rex Ryan back in the fold defensively. “I think with Rex more now in the defensive meetings and helping out, I think he’s going to put together a great defensive game plan.” “We’re going to go to Foxboro and get this win,” he said. When asked where the Jets would be after Week 2, Wilkerson replied: “We’re going to be 2-0.”

We tried to "out-Bill" the Buffalo Bills...in their house!! Our starting RB gets benched for fumbling, our center botches a snap on Buffalo’s 1 yard line, our receivers stop and watch Brady when he rolls out of the pocket as if they're in the stands, etc. I don't care how hard we try, the Bills will find a way to lose down the stretch. Their WR dropped a game clinching pass, even though the ball had the velocity of a father trying to teach his 3 year old how to catch. That’s how you lose. But ya, we can definitely lose to the Jets if we have the same performance in the turnover battle and our rookie wideouts keep running into each other or stopping all together after their done with their routes. The Jets have no pressure and if Geno can simply keep drives moving while killing the clock, they’ll certainly have a chance. I can see Rex putting 7 in the box, hitting Amendola, stopping the run, keeping us honest with screens and making Brady throw to the outside to beat them. Normally this is the last thing that you do against Brady but our WR's were that bad and couldn't get any separation. They were also horrible in anticipating where Brady was going to throw, which is a recipe for turnovers deep down field. After some of those WR miscues, I really think that I saw Brady trying to count to 8 before reacting. This isn’t the boring 2006 team where we had experienced receivers who just weren’t that good, occasionally dropping balls and requiring Brady to chip his way down the field. These receivers are supposed to be bigger and talented outside compliments to Amendola, Edelman and Vareen and if they can’t succeed with this, they’re borderline useless. Amendola had to make a few great catches in the middle of the field when he was covered for us to win the game (frankly, catches that I think Welker would have dropped). Hopefully these are simply growing pains within a complex system.
If our WR’s need to get by until mid-season before they are on the same page with Brady, our DB’s will need to step up. The Jets only had 90 yards rushing and 47 were from Geno. If the Pats have a defensive strength, it is stopping the run (see Foster and Ray Rice). However, when teams have tried to catch up in the past and start throwing every play, they often wonder why they bothered running in the first place. Hopefully our DB’s are catching up to our front 7. I’ll be curious to see if we blitz Geno or if our DE’s play contain and we try to keep him in the pocket. I kind of think that he’d be less comfortable having to drop back and throw vs. being rushed from the pocket and improvising with a clear view of the field.
