11:43 AM ET 10.15 | Darrelle Revis tore his ACL earlier in the year but the Jets waited to put him on IR until last weekend. The hope was that Revis could return if the Jets made a playoff run but even then it was unlikely he would be able to go. The Jets cornerback is scheduled for surgery on Tuesday which marks the end of any comeback hopes.

Why the wait?

Sometimes they have to wait a couple of weeks for the swelling and fluid to drain off enough to get a really good look at things when they scope it.

When my wife did her ACL skiing, they put her on an exercise program to strengthen the muscles around the knee before the operation. It makes for a better recovery. Of course, you'd expect a pro football player to already be at that peak-strength level.

Can we give the Doc a tip and have him take a stitch or two in Revis' mouth ?

I was primed to ask the same thing.

Good explanations in #2 and 3.

Good. This will cut the number of weekly Revis threads in half.


For now...

Only means the NY media will focus that much more on Sanchez-Tebow.

The Jets will be starting Tebow after the game vs New England.

If the Jets can protect Sanchez, he's the QB, he did a good job yesterday!

THE JETS SUCK!


I know I know, not my place... but I miss it. To me, no thread about 'em is complete until I see it.
