Jets coach Rex Ryan hinted Thursday that with the injuries to Joe McKnight and Bilal Powell, Tim Tebow could see some snaps at running back Sunday against the Patriots.
“That’s a possibility,” Ryan told reporters. “The thing about Tim, with him being a football player. ... By playing quarterback, he knows all the positions. So can you plug him in at running back? Can you plug him in at tight end? I think the answer is yes.
“His skillset would be more based on power,” Ryan added. “He’s not going to be a blazer compared to other running backs, but he’s got power.”
Joe McKnight (high ankle sprain) and Bilal Powell (separated shoulder), have both struggled with injury lately, and the New York...
New York Jets linebacker Calvin Pace was asked by ESPNNewYork.com's Rich Cimini on Wednesday about the up-tempo offense of the Patriots.
"It's borderline illegal because sometimes the guys aren't always set when they snap the ball," Pace said. "But it's smart. Why not hurry a team up? I wish we would do it. For a defense, it just puts pressure on you."
The Patriots have run 473 plays on offense this season, 39 more than any other team in the league. That number includes a 94-play effort in a win vs. the Bronocs on October 7.
"It's very difficult," Jets linebacker David Harris told Cimini. "You'll see defenses not even lined up and they're already running a play. They get a lot of extra yardage because of it. It causes guys to lose their mind. You can see it on film."...

On Wednesday, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman strongly denied a rumor that there have been discussions with the Marlins about sending the 37-year-old to Miami and paying all of the remaining $114 million left on his contract.
“I have had no discussions with the Florida Marlins, certainly would never have any trade discussions under the circumstances," Cashman said. “There are no discussions whatsoever. They are false.
Tigers third base coach Gene Lamont, who was the runner-up to Bobby Valentine in the Red Sox' search for a manager after the 2011 season, told Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald prior to Game 4 of the American League Championship Series against the Yankees that the Sox would have faced a less "chaotic" season if they'd hired him.
"I don’t know what the record would’ve been," Lamont told the Herald, "but I’m positive it wouldn’t have been as chaotic.
"I don’t know what went on with the players," he continued. "If I would’ve been there, I don’t think there would’ve been that much turmoil."
Lamont told the Herald that even...
