08:04 AM ET 10.10 | Does Rex Ryan have a mutiny on his hands or not? This team has internal issues, with a growing frustration among offensive players. ... [Don't] think for a second that everything is cool on [Brian] Schottenheimer's watch. Derrick Mason, who made critical comments after last week's ugly loss in Baltimore, was benched for the first half and wound up playing only a handful of plays. Ryan said, with a straight face, he wanted to give more opportunities to rookie Jeremy Kerley as the No. 3 receiver, but he sat Mason because of his mouth, ESPNNewYork.com has learned. Mason dodged questions about his benching, saying, "You've got to ask Coach about that." Regardless of the reason, Mason, signed to replace the dependable Jerricho Cotchery, could be deemed expendable.

Schottenheimer will be fired before the end of the season.

Not a good sign when players openly criticize the coaches and coaches retaliate personally against the players. Implosions usually follow.

The Eagles seem to be cooperating. They dig their own grave. The defense brings the shovels and the offense brings the picks.

Why bring shovels when they already have the holes?

They didn't play like a team that plans on quitting on their coaching staff yesterday, but all this chatter has to concern Rex and Co.

They went three-and-out a half-dozen times against the worst defense in the league. If Hernandez had caught the easy TD pass at the end of the fist half, the score would have been much different, too.

Regardless of whether the Jets brought pressure or not, the Pats seemed to be able to find the open man, or catch the Jets in pass coverage with a run. I'd say the offense wasn't getting the job done for NYJ, and the defense was getting out-coached and out-played.

Didn't see much of Rex's fine dental work yesterday.

If he really wanted to make a statement, he should have just released Mason. That's what the hoodie would have done.

Looks like Baltimore might have been right on that one.
