when he stood locking arms with them during the national anthem.,There was a team a meeting Saturday night followed by Johnson's show of unity Sunday
but Johnson is part of a small group of owners with especially close ties to Trump. He is one of seven owners who each contributed $1 million to Trump's inauguration committee.,Other owners and coaches took part in their respective solidarity stands Sunday
Johnson's older brother, was nominated by Trump to become to U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom and he also supported Trump's campaign., Woody Johnson
the players seemed pleased with his gesture.,The statement Christopher Johnson made after kickoff was less about denouncing Trump and more about showing solidarity with his team. That said
and quarterback Josh McCown spoke for his teammates to their owner:,The team gave him a game ball after the win
they follow courage. And in the face of all this stuff,"Make sure you give our owner some love. He stood there and locked arms with us. Let me tell you something: People don't follow titles, he stepped up with us. No matter who he was, to stand with us. That's a cool thing, man."
and for him to come down and lock arms with us,Added wide receiver Jermaine Kearse: "We had decided we were gonna do this as a team, it just made it that much better. It gave us the affirmation of saying, 'We're all in this together.'"
but added that he "would leave it to others to talk about.",Johnson said he was "disappointed" in what Trump had to say
"Unbelievable, 'I'm going stand right next to you.' ... We appreciate that as a team and it was outstanding."," rookie safety Jamal Adams said about locking arms with Johnson. "It shows how much he cares about this team. ... I was all for it. I walked up to him and said
head coach Todd Bowles likened Trump's comments to a fan yelling at players in the tunnel.,On a conference call on Monday
" Bowles added. "The biggest problem here is the issues. You focus on the issues. ... The issues are the things that happened in Charlottesville,"You've got to put that out of your mind, and you've got hurricane victims here and there. You've got to focus on the issues, because the he-said, she-said and the Twitter beef and all that stuff really doesn't matter.
no matter who said what. If it's not about solutions,"We locked arms because we're united. We're trying to show that we can get things done as a country if unite together. We're trying to show unity within our team. We're trying to show unity for the league. And we're trying to show unity for everything all together that's inclusive. I'm not a big comment guy, the problems don't really matter, if you're not trying to find a solution."
Jets QB Crystal Ball: How college's best quarterbacks played over the weekend
the Jets' chances at getting the No. 1 overall pick took a big hit on Sunday when they got their first win of the season in only their third try. Few expected that,Well, but the Jets probably don't have enough talent on this roster to be a good football team. The odds are, they'll be picking high in the draft and we all know the Jets need a quarterback. Badly.
So to help Jets fans keep up, squint and you can probably see one of them playing for the Jets at this time next year.,Authentic Bryce Petty Jersey, each week we’ll take a look at the five most notable performances from the top college quarterbacks. Close your eyes
Jets rookie centerpiece looks good as advertised on defense
it certainly is now. Rookie safety Jamal Adams is the real deal.,If it wasn’t obvious before
that is perhaps the most positive takeaway from their 20-6 win over the Dolphins on Sunday.,And for a Jets organization in the early stages of a rebuild
Heading into the season, he was immediately hailed as a centerpiece of the defense before lining up for his first snap in the NFL.,Authentic Bo Jackson Jersey, expectations were almost unfairly high for Adams. As the sixth-overall pick in the 2017 draft
safety Marcus Gilchrist and later defensive end Sheldon Richardson — leaving vacancies for others to step up and making it possible for Adams to become the second highest-paid player on the team.,That was partly a result of the Jets cleaning house. The team got rid of some of the staples of its defense from last year — linebacker David Harris
Adams has shown the high expectations were warranted.,Womens Derek Carr Jersey,But through three games
you wouldn’t know Adams,From watching the game against Miami, at 21,Womens Howie Long Jersey, is the youngest player on the Jets’ active roster. He made plays all over the field and brought an energy that seemed to permeate the entire defense.
” coach Todd Bowles said. “He brings a lot of emotion with him. He got the team behind him and got them into it.”,“He’s an exciting player. He did a lot of things the right way
” Adams said. “Set the tone.”,“I definitely want to keep that energy when I’m on the field
Adams stopped Jay Ajayi in the backfield for a 2-yard loss and blanketed Julius Thomas to cause an incompletion on a third down near midfield.,On the Dolphins’ first offensive possession
Adams had two tackles for a loss,Womens Authentic Derek Carr Jersey, and one pass deflection., one sack
up 20-0 in the fourth quarter,With the Jets coasting, Adams was still revved up. After Jay Cutler got sacked on third down by his teammate Buster Skrine, the rookie got called for a foolish taunting penalty, allowing the Dolphins’ drive to continue. It was the one moment when Adams showed his youth.
the Jets have chosen a defensive player in the first round of every draft. Some have panned out. Several others haven’t.,Since 2010
So, that they'd make up for it on the next play., the veteran quarterback got his guys huddled up and told them to brush it off
Sure enough: Snap. Throw. Touchdown.
That 69-yard toss, was a key moment in the Jets' 20-6 win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. It was how McCown handled the holding call on center Wesley Johnson during the previous play that exemplified exactly why the Jets wanted the journeyman quarterback here., a perfectly placed ball to Robby Anderson
"We were all mad, cussing — well," left tackle Kelvin Beachum said after the game. "We came back into the huddle and Josh just calmed us all down.", I wasn't cussing — but we were just mad about the play

On a roster marked by youth and inexperience, old sage with an aw-shucks approach and friendly and professional demeanor., the 38-year-old McCown is the wise
with the Jets his 10th NFL franchise since being drafted by Arizona in the third round in 2002.,It's no wonder why teams love having him on their roster
But McCown's signing for one year and $6 million in March caused many Jets fans to ask one big question: Why?
New York, was coming off a rough 5-11 season with another veteran in Ryan Fitzpatrick. The focus this offseason was on whether youngsters Christian Hackenberg or Bryce Petty could establish themselves as the franchise quarterback., after all
"I would say having Josh be a veteran presence in there, "I think he's good for those two young players."," general manager Mike Maccagnan said before training camp
McCown was never challenged for the job in training camp. And, so far, along with a solid 91.3 quarterback rating., he's been solid in New York's 1-2 start. McCown is 60 of 86 — 69.8 percent — for 602 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions
" coach Todd Bowles said. "He's controlled the offense. He sees things. He's playing smart football.","Josh has been playing well for the last three weeks
McCown is the solidifying force for the present. He's someone the young players can watch and follow — the way he looked up to veterans such as Emmitt Smith early in his career with the Cardinals.,With so much upheaval on the roster and the Jets seeking to build for the future
McCown was reminded of that while watching a recent episode of "A Football Life" on NFL Network that chronicled Smith's Hall of Fame career.
"Just looking back, I know how he impacted my career, "but also Adrian Wilson and Larry Fitzgerald and guys that stayed there and ended up helping build and take that team to the Super Bowl and their impression from Emmitt.","Womens Bo Jackson Jersey, McCown said
or even if he'll remain the starter all season. Many fans have their eyes on USC's Sam Darnold and UCLA's Josh Rosen as draft targets next spring with the potential No. 1 overall pick.,McCown has no idea how long his stint with the Jets will last
Until Sunday's victory, some wonder if that win — and any subsequent ones — will hinder New York's chances at landing a possible franchise quarterback., some outside the organization wondered if the Jets would even win a game this season. Now
While talk of tanking the season marked the early narratives, Bowles has tried to instill a change in culture around the franchise, One Goal.", Authentic Amari Cooper Jersey, with his rallying cry being "One Team
To a man, the players insist outside opinions mean nothing. They all want to win,Womens Bryce Petty Jersey, and refuse to be OK with losing now to achieve something for the future.,Authentic Howie Long Jersey, of course
That approach is exactly why McCown is here.
"When you're in a situation like this when you are building something and you're a veteran player," he said., you don't know how long it's going to take or whatnot
how you go about your journey and your day and try to communicate as best you can what you feel it takes to be a pro and hopefully showing those principles that they can carry with them.,Authentic Khalil Mack Jersey,"But what you can do is just share with the young guys your process
"And hopefully you're there to see the growth, to reap some of that fruit. But even if you're not, you tried to make it better than it was before you left.", then later on down the road you see some of those guys play at a high level,Womens Khalil Mack Jersey,you can appreciate that when you went to a spot
WR Charone Peake (ankle) and LB Josh Martin (ankle),NOTES: Bowles said X-rays came back negative for RB Matt Forte (toe), but he was uncertain what their availability would be for this week. ... Brian Winters is "feeling better" after sitting out with an abdominal injury, Bowles said. Dakota Dozier filled in and Bowles said he was pleased by his performance. "I thought he did a good job," he said. "There are some plays you would like to have back of course,Womens Amari Cooper Jersey, he held his own.", he was tough, but he was smart, for the most part
