Line judge Gary Arthur was knocked out of game between the Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens with a broken collarbone after colliding with a player along the sideline in the first quarter.
Veteran wide receiver Brian Hartline added, “That’s a tough situation he was put in”. He had great chemistry with his receivers, throwing a touchdown to both Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker. Thanks to the Media Relations Department of the Jets, here is a full transcript of what he had to say in its entirety. Offensive coordinator Chan Gailey also diverged from his predecessor, Marty Mornhinweg, by sticking with Ivory all game.
“At the time, did not have all the information yet from the police”, he said.
On whether it was nice to start the season with a win… But it’s also hard to envision him shedding his instincts and playing the type of safe, efficient football NFL teams demand from their quarterbacks.
However, it is realistic that McCown could be cleared to play games a week apart. We are going to see them a lot. “If he starts running later in the week and is feeling better, there’s a chance he’ll play”. We get the ball back, we’re up 7-0.
On whether his first thought after the interception was to strip the ball…
“I thought interior-wise, that group was pretty solid”, Pettine said. “I was disappointed in the second half but there were some good things despite the turnovers”.
Late in training camp, Williams’ participation in practice was limited by a muscle strain in his knee.
“It’s special because it’s the first team win”.
On whether he was looking for Fireman Ed after he scored…
“We need a day like (Sunday) to end up having us be on top at the end”.
On whether his play was everything he need to do to overcome the controversial week… Ryan Fitzpatrick’s pass was intercepted by Tashaun Gipson deep in Browns territory when the Jets Marshall ripped the ball away from Gipson to keep New York’s drive alive.
On whether this game meant more to him so he could silence his critics… I just play football. It is rare for a player to be concussed and play the next Sunday. He got positive yardage, he slid down and we were ready for the next play.
Just like that, the Jets had upgraded their weak passing game-easily the team’s Achilles heel. Pettine said. “You’re talking about a guy that was instinct for him to do that”.
Moments later, Chris Ivory ran up the middle for a 10-yard tying TD. When the offensive line is going strong, your offense will go strong. He makes our offense go.
It has nothing to do with accuracy or arm strength. We all know he’s a Harvard guy and he’s good at that.
Celebration of the day goes to Craig Robertson and all he did was stop a punt returner cold in his tracks.
“He had very little (movement) from what I saw”, coach Todd Bowles said. “Then I’ll be no good for the game”.
Yeah, it was all Fitz. The defense got run over, the secondary got worked, the running backs had no lanes to run through, and couldn’t gain anything even when they did find a hole.
The Browns will prepare Manziel to start this weekend in the home opener against the Tennessee Titans because fellow quarterback Josh McCown suffered a concussion Sunday in a season-opening, 31-10 loss to the New York Jets.
On how as an athlete you get in the right mindset after witnessing serious injuries…
But you don’t kick a kid to the curb because he hasn’t developed the way you want him to.
I was really scared. Cromartie later left with a knee injury.
I can’t talk about that. “From a physical standpoint, I just think he needs to calm down going into the game”. We’ll continue to build off of what happened today.
