Jets to start Bollinger at QB despite concussion

Associated Press


HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. -- Jets quarterback Brooks Bollinger will start Sunday's game against New Orleans despite a concussion that sidelined him for most of a loss to Denver.

Coach Herman Edwards said Monday that Bollinger underwent several exams and still had a small headache, but is fine to play. Bollinger took a hard hit from Al Wilson in the first quarter of New York's 27-0 loss and exited with a concussion that left him vomiting on the sideline.

Vinny Testaverde went into the game and sprained his right ankle, leaving his status in doubt for this weekend. Testaverde is listed as probable, but if he's too sore to practice this week, Kliff Kingsbury will be the backup quarterback.

Kingsbury replaced Testaverde late in the game and is the fifth quarterback the Jets have used this season.

RE: Saints vs Jets

We probably gonna make Bollinger look like Steve Young, I bet he will have 250+ yards and 3TDs.

I didn't watch MNF last night. As I walked through the living room on my way out to work, I noticed that the Vikings won. That broke my heart. If GB had won, we'd be one step closer to that #1 pick....

What some Jets fans are saying...



"I like the idea of playing Kingsbury for the next few weeks, see if he can be a part of the team, maybe a #2, maybe a #3. What does it hurt to give the guy a shot. "


"OK, We're here folks. Finally after 5 years we've hit it. BedRock! We can't go lower cause there's simply no where to go. The only thing that stands between us and Hell is the schedule. Nothing else really matters anymore. Yeah, I'm running up the white flag. Just like the Little BigHorn, we're not gonna win this one. What I don't understand is the whining, *****ing, moaning and outright delusionment we're seeing here."


" New Orleans - The Jets can't win this game? I know things are bad but they turn the ball over more than the Jets do.lol No Deuce McCallister helps."


"We can make a statement by not attending the Sunday night Jet-Saints game next week. I have had season tix 40 years and i went to every game in the 1-15 season. But this is different. By not attending and having an empty stadium we will be sending a message to Woody and the the league who gave us this game. Even before we were really bad this game was bad. Think of all the traffic aggravation you will miss if you don't attend. "


"Anyone think we will lose to the Saints? I think we will..."


"I want Reggie Bush no matter where we land, but I know we have a much better shot at him if we wind up with #1 or #2. So, does that mean I root for them to lose? Pretty much. Sorry, but I don't see any difference between finishing the season 2-14 vs 4-12 (there's no way this team wins more than 2 or 3 games out of the final 6). "



There ya go.

At the beginning of this year I thought that the Jets would win this one but they're just awful. The Saints will win this and probably look good doing it.

It is, of course, no fault of Herm Edwards that this team sucks. And I wish no ill will to the man but I hope that the Jets release him and the Saints pick him up. I guess that IS ill will. I just think that he is a good coach in a tragic situation.

AB throws for +300 yards 2 TDs and we end up winning, in one fell swoop he knocks us out of a good draft position, and dooms the team for next year by winning his job for next year when the team uses this game as a catalyst and wins 5 of last 6....Somebody needs to do a Nancy Kerrigan on that guy to save our team...jsut kidding I abhore any and all violence against the mentally and physically challenged...Play it again Stevie...that's a nod to iceshack149...Love that quote

Team Report: Inside Slant - Jets

FoxSports.com


Coach Herm Edwards named Brooks Bollinger the starter for Sunday's home game against New Orleans.

Whether that's good news for Jets fans or for Bollinger himself is debatable.

It means a fourth start for a quarterback who has produced no touchdowns in three NFL starts, after his appearance at Denver was cut short by a concussion late in the first quarter. It also likely means another week of Bollinger running for his life, as a banged-up offensive line has had trouble providing adequate protection in recent weeks.

Sunday was a case in point, as Bollinger was crunched by Al Wilson on a first-quarter blitz and left the game shortly afterward. He later vomited on the sideline.

"He couldn't go back, I know that," Edwards said Monday. "He couldn't go back and participate in the game. For his safety, it was the best thing to do, not putting him in the game. He had a little headache today, but it's getting better, clearing up. He went and took the (CT) scan and all that, and they said he's going to be OK."

OK is something the Jets ceased being awhile ago. The 27-0 loss to the Broncos was their fifth consecutive defeat, and it dropped them to 2-8. The only consolation is that after playing two straight division leaders in Carolina (NFC South) and Denver (AFC West), the Jets draw the vagabond New Orleans/San Antonio/Baton Rouge Saints, who also are 2-8.

Edwards defended the progress of some of the young players, mentioning Bollinger specifically.

"Players are getting better," he said, "but it doesn't show up on the scoreboard. People say these guys are terrible. You can say what you want, but there's young guys that are getting better. Brooks Bollinger has gotten better, OK. He's gotten better. There's some young players that have gotten better on our football team. It doesn't show right away. You've got to keep coaching, that's what you've got to do."
