Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.comWith the bye week upon us, here’s five of the most memorable moments so far from the Jets 2014 season. Add yours in the comments!
Dee Milliner lost for the season — Dee Milliner has struggled with injury issues dating back to his days at Alabama and they seem to have followed him to the Jets. Since entering the NFL Draft process last year, Milliner has undergone shoulder surgery leading up to the draft, suffered a high ankle sprain this summer’s at training camp, attempted to return to the field early (Packers) before sitting until October and then experiencing a season-ending Achilles tear against the Broncos.
Jets trade for Percy Harvin — One of the most surprising moments of the season came when the Jets gave up a fourth rounder for one of the most dynamic players in the NFL after Seattle had seen enough and faced a number of disruptions from the talented receiver. So far, Harvin has played well for the Jets and is by far the team’s best skill position player. We fully expect to see Harvin back in 2015 with the Jets and for the team to find interesting and innovative ways to use him. To read more of this story, click here
Rex Ryan will be fined $100,000 by the NFL for his postgame profanity, according to Chris Mortensen (Nov. 14).
Ryan is a third time offender, hence the hefty fine, Mortensen said.
“Yeah, I think I was saying thank you,” Ryan joked early in the week. “Emotions run high in games, and sometimes I think its best (that) what happens on the field stays on the field. That’s where it stems from. It’s a very emotional game. Obviously, I have to do a good job of controlling my emotions and things like that. Things happen and I am sorry if I offended anybody.”
When asked if he was cursing at an official, Ryan said, “I am not going to get into that.”

The height of the fine is probably due to the fact that the coach has been fined for prior events and so the league ratcheted up the price tag. Ryan was livid after the Steelers safety launched himself into the backfield as the Jets tried to run out the clock and after eight straight losses we’re sure emotions were running pretty high for the coach.
