  1. Jets’ Sam Darnold vows to ‘trust’ teammates in his first game back By Mollie Walker October 10, 2019 | 8:49pm With Sam Darnold preparing for his first start since being diagnosed with mononucleosis a month ago, a lot of his integration back onto the field will depend on his ability to trust. He’ll have to trust his spleen has returned to normal size and he’s not in any more danger, trust the game plan and trust his teammates. Because although Darnold’s return poses a heap of optimism for the Jets offense, it’ll be up to those around him to make his return worthwhile. “I’m not worried about [how dangerous playing quarterback is after being sick],” Darnold said Thursday following practice. “When I’m out there playing, I’m not worried about guys hitting me or anything. I’m trusting the guys up-front to do their things and I’m trusting the receivers to go out and get open when it’s time to pass the ball. “For me, it’s all about trust. When I do get hit I know that I’m not in danger anymore, they’re letting me go out there and play because it’s safe. So, I’m not worried about that.” The 22-year-old quarterback was able to get light conditioning in while recovering and was able to practice in a no-contact jersey last week to begin knocking the rust off. He was optimistic he would be activated for Week 5 against the Eagles, but tests didn’t come back the way the team had hoped. But now he’ll be back in the mix Sunday, when the Cowboys come to MetLife Stadium, as the Jets look for him pump some life back into their 0-4 season. “I don’t know what that would’ve been like if he got to play last week and said ‘Hey, I’m going to try to do too much and impress.’ ” offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said. “We’ve had another week to talk to him about, ‘Hey, you’ve got to trust your coaching, you’ve got to trust your teammates and you have to trust your process and trust your reads. Play the game that way and also be creative. Put your spin on the game plan and use your creativity and your ability to get outside the pocket.’ ” Loggains said Darnold isn’t going to be the “magic wand” for the Jets, but he will “lift the execution of this team.” The coaching staff has made the necessary adjustments to put Darnold in the best position to succeed, but the second-year quarterback is just focusing on what makes him good. “I think [Loggains is] right,” Darnold said. “We’ve got to figure out what we need to clean up, the details on a lot of stuff that we’re doing. Hopefully, I can go out there and do my thing, throw the ball where it needs to be thrown, be able to check the ball down if I had to and go make plays when it’s necessary to do that. “I’m just going to go out there and continue to play football the way I play. But also stay within the offense and stay within myself.” Darnold believes the extra handful of practices the last week will help him in the long run. But he’s expecting his first couple of series on the field to be “a little bit of a shock to the system.” He’ll continue to wear a protective pad around his midsection during practice and games. Darnold said he doesn’t feel restricted at all by it and plans to wear it the rest of the season. “I think I’m going to be ready and hopefully after those [first] couple of series, I’ll feel right at home,” Darnold said.
  2. Hahaha... I'm a BIG Baker fan but last night was pretty bad... I think he'll straighten it out & end up with a pretty decent season.
  3. Jets hold players-only powwow to avoid nasty breaking point By Brian Costello October 7, 2019 | 6:04pm | Updated Several Jets veterans tried to save their season Monday by delivering speeches to the team about sticking together and finding a way out of this 0-4 hole. Defensive end Leonard Williams said it was a natural time to assess their season in a players-only meeting with a quarter of it done. Much like a game, they divide the season into four quarters. The first quarter of this season has not been kind to the Jets, who lost 31-6 on Sunday to the Eagles. “There’s four quarters in the season and we’ve gone through our first quarter of the season now and we are 0-4 and we understand that we haven’t had a fast start to our season and it’s not where we want to be but at the same time the season’s not over,” Williams said. “Just like how if you lose the first quarter, the game is not over. We believe there’s a lot to fight for.” The Jets’ hellish schedule continues over the next two weeks with games against the Cowboys and Patriots at home. It is unclear whether starting quarterback Sam Darnold will be back this week. Coach Adam Gase said Darnold, who has missed the last three games with mononucleosis, will undergo tests Tuesday to see if doctors are ready to clear him. Even with Darnold, the Jets have many issues to clean up. Their offense has scored just two touchdowns this season (one with Darnold). The offensive line has given up a league-high 23 sacks. They have gained only 454 yards this season in four games. By comparison, the Patriots had 442 yards Sunday against the Redskins. Enlarge Image “It’s probably more than just Sam getting out there,” Gase said. “We’ve got a lot of other things to clean up. Sam’s able to hide things sometimes for us where if we make a mistake, he covers it up. I think we just need to do a better job as a group making sure we’re all 11 on the same page.” The offense is a mess right now. It allowed 10 sacks against the Eagles and had just nine first downs. Much of that is due to Darnold’s absence. Third-string quarterback Luke Falk is not ready to play in the NFL, but the unit is also adjusting to Gase’s system. The Jets started two new offensive linemen Sunday and wide receiver Demaryius Thomas made his first extended appearance in the offense. “We took our turns as far as what we were doing,” Gase said. “Overall, we just haven’t played very well. There’s no way around it. We just haven’t played very good as an offense in general.” While the offense has sputtered, the Jets defense has been pretty good. They have scored as many touchdowns as the offense this season, which tells you everything you need to know about the two units. The danger facing Gase and the Jets right now is a splintering in the locker room. It would be easy for the defense to resent the offense right now. That was one thing the players discussed Monday. Williams said veteran center Ryan Kalil’s message stood out to him among the players who spoke. “What he was saying was we just have to stay level-headed and not get too high when we win and not get too down when we lose and just not being on a roller coaster and just stay level,” Williams said. “He’s been in this league for a long time, so hearing it from a guy like that meant a lot.” Williams said the players are trying to keep believing. “There has been some vets that spoke up and said they were on teams that were definitely a lot worse than this,” Williams said. “We have a lot of talent. We’re 0-4 right now but the season’s not over and we still have a lot to fight for. “This is not the time to point fingers at any position, any group. This is a time to fight for one another and lean on one another.”

  7. At least we have... THE YANKEES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2019 AL EAST DIVISION CHAMPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! https://www.nj.com/yankees/2019/09/al-east-champs-adversity-tackling-yankees-conquer-1st-division-title-since-2012.html AL East champs! Adversity-tackling Yankees conquer 1st division title since 2012 Updated 12:17 AM; Posted Sep 19, 9:19 PM AP The Yankees returned to the field for a champagne-spraying group picture Thursday night after beating the Los Angeles Angels 9-1 at Yankee Stadium to win the AL East title. 16 By Randy Miller | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com NEW YORK — The 2019 Yankees started dealing with adversity before it actually was 2019, as shortstop Didi Gregorius blowing out his throwing elbow during a Division Series game in Boston last October led to Tommy John surgery and a good bit of missed time early this season. That injury was the start of a never-ending run of haymakers that stung the Yankees all season long. The 30 players that they sent to the injured list is a Major League Baseball record and made for a viable excuse that never was used. No need. The Yankees somehow persevered through all these roadblocks, and even on Thursday a bombshell of another kind dropped when pitcher Domingo German, their 18-game winner, was placed on administrative leave by Major League Baseball due to a domestic violence investigation. Once again, the Yankees dealt with this awful news much like they handled a lot of their other many doses of hardship. By night, the Yankees reeled off another victory, and this 9-1 stomping of the Los Angeles Angels, win No. 100, was the clincher for the team’s first goal heading into spring training. For the first time since 2012, the Yankees are American League East champions. “This is the first step along the way,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “Whatever we faced adversity wise, we faced it and powered right through.” The Yankees sure earned it by winning and winning and winning with their roster changing almost daily due to so many injuries to so many key players. “I think it’s important for us to realize how special this is and how special of an accomplishment this is, but at the same time we’ve got a lot of work left to go,” outfielder Brett Gardner said. "We’ve got a lot of baseball left to play. We’re going to continue to do that and feel great about the team that we’ve had all year and the guys we have in this room. “It definitely is hopefully the beginning of something special.” DJ LeMahieu, one of the few Yankees who has avoided the IL, has been an igniter all season long as a hitting machine from the leadoff spot, and the AL MVP contender did it again in the clincher staking his club to a 3-0 lead with a second-inning homer off Angels left-hander Andrew Heaney. “No surprise that DJ would be the guy that gets it rolling in a big way,” Boone said. The Yankees have been homering their way to a lot of wins this season, and they finished with four as outfielders Cameron Maybin, Clint Frazier and Gardner, also went deep. The Yanks did more than enough scoring for starter Masahiro Tanaka, who again lived up to his well-earned rep as a big-game pitcher holding the Angels to one run and four hits over seven innings.Tanaka (11-8) was replaced by Cory Gearrin, who worked a 1-2-3 eighth, then closer Aroldis Chapman put away the Angels in the ninth to launch some on-field hugging that led to a champagne party in the winning clubhouse. “There’s no script or anything," Boone said. "Guys are really excited and really proud of this step and you react how you react. It happened to be business-like (on the field) and they’re obviously having so fun (in the clubhouse) now.” NOTABLE -- Right fielder Aaron Judge was rested after falling hard on his right shoulder diving in the fifth inning of Wednesday’s game in a failed attempt to rob Angels slugger Albert Pujols of a hit. He may be back in the lineup on Thursday. “We’ll see how he’s doing,” Boone said. “If he’s sound and good to go, then he’s playing.” -- The Yankees are playoff bound for the 21st time in the last 25 seasons. -- The Yankees lead the majors with an MLB single-season record 292 homers. The Minnesota Twins had 288 going into their game Thursday night against the Kansas City Royals. -- LeMahieu was 1-for-4, leaving him with a .329 that is second in the AL to Chicago White Sox shorstop Tim Anderson, who is batting .335. -- Boone has led the Yankees to 100-win seasons in each of his first two campaigns. The only other major league skipper to have 100-win seasons in his first two years with a club was Ralph Houk (1961-62 Yankees).
