Top of the Morning News, Monday, September 19, 2011


"You know, stuff happens in the game," Jaguars linebacker Daryl Smith said. "Picks, fumbles, people get banged up, whatever. You just gotta have the mentality like whatever happens, you gotta keep pushing. We kept going, and at the end of the day, Jets win. They made more plays than we did."  The Times-Union

The quarterbacks were a hot topic following Sunday's loss.

 "That was not what anybody envisioned coming up here," Del Rio said.

Don Banks of gives take on week two. 

"As an offense we saw everything that they were doing to us but we had a good plan for it," McCown said. "We just didn't execute and it starts with me." The Times-Union

"He rebounded very well, had two key plays for us," Revis said. "We thought the one was a touchdown but he kind of got out of bounds -- but he did the Reggie Bush-type , USC-type thing, flying in the air like superman -- but it was great for him."

"Coleman said he looked at the Jets-Jaguars Week 2 game as just another game on the schedule. He said he holds no animosity toward the Jets organization, one Coleman says treated him with the utmost respect."

"During their team meeting Saturday night, Ryan challenged his offense, which had not produced a first-quarter touchdown in 16 games. If the Jets won the coin toss, he said, he would defy his standard philosophy of deferring to the second half. We're taking the ball, he told them."  The New York Times

The last word

"One guy doesn't win or lose the game.  We have to do a better job of going up and getting the passes he was throwing.  It was a team effort.  As an offense, we didn't do our part.  We lost this game as an offense.  We have to correct it, and that's what we will do.  We played a good defense.  They executed a little better than we did." 

Running back Maurice Jones-Drew following the loss to the Jets
