While the New York Jets were clashing with the Chicago Bears in their Monday Night Football matchup, the team announced that they will welcome two new members into their Ring of Honor. Joining the club this year will be former Jets owner Leon Hess and legendary wide receiver Wayne Chrebet.

Hess purchased a share of the Jets in 1963 along with Sonny Werblin, Philip H. Iselin, Townsend B. Martin, and Donald Lillis. Five seasons later, he witnessed his team shock the world as the Jets reached their most treasured achievement by winning Super Bowl III against the heavily favored Baltimore Colts. Hess became the sole owner of the franchise in 1984, the same year he relocated the team to the Meadowlands. Hess became the sole owner of the Jets in 1984, the same season he relocated the team to the Meadowlands.

Throughout his time as Jets owner, Hess experienced some good seasons along with numerous painful ones. The Jets came very close to returning to the promised land in the 1982 season and even closer in the 1998 season, in which they finished 12-4 and won their first AFC East title in franchise history. The following May, Hess passed away at the age of 85.

New York Jets: Keys to Victory Against Chicago Bears in Monday Night Battle

After a heartbreaking loss to the Green Bay Packers, the New York Jets will have an opportunity to redeem themselves on the national stage as they host the Chicago Bears in a Monday Night Football contest. While the Bears have a lot of talent on their team, the Jets may actually find themselves in a favorable position to win this game.

Beat them on the ground: While many NFL offenses are airing it out to put up points and win games, the Jets are getting the job done on the ground. Entering week three, the Jets have the league's best rushing offense and the Bears are ranked 30th against the run. Also, the Jets have the top rushing defense while the Bears are ranked 27th in rushing. As long as the Jets can keep Matt Forte limited and prevent him from making big plays, the Bears may have to play a one-dimensional game and add pressure to Jay Cutler.

Eric Decker and Dee Milliner Questionable for Monday Night Game Vs Chicago Bears

September 18th, 2014 at 2:10 PM
By Anthony Pasinella

Eric Decker, without a doubt, has been the best wide receiver on the field this year for the New York Jets. When he had to leave the field in Sunday's contest vs the Green Bay Packers late in the second half, the Jets were hard pressed to continue their strong passing attack that helped them build the 21-3 lead in the first half. Decker suffered a hamstring injury that sidelined him for the remainder of the game.

Decker has been limited in practice all week as the Jets prepare to take on the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football. Dee Milliner has also been recovering from a high ankle sprain that had kept him out of the week one matchup vs the Oakland Raiders. Although Milliner was able to play vs the Green Bay Packers this past Sunday, he looked slower than usual and a bit rusty to say the least. This doesn't come as a complete surprise, given the fact Milliner has been out for about a month. Decker was asked on Wednesday about his status for Monday nights primetime game vs the Bears,

New York Jets’ Rex Ryan on Chicago Bears’ Santonio Holmes: I Enjoyed My Time Coaching Him

September 17th, 2014 at 3:44 PM
By Doug Rush

When the New York Jets decided to part ways with veteran wide receiver and former Super Bowl MVP Santonio Holmes in the offseason, a lot of people around the organization were glad because of the reputation Holmes had developed.

One player referred to Holmes "as a cancer and like dealing with a 10-year-old child," while former Jets running back LaDanian Tomlinson said that Holmes caused a big rift in the locker room between him and former quarterback Mark Sanchez.

However despite the reports of Holmes being a malcontent in the locker room and on the team, his former head coach in Rex Ryan had nothing but nice things to say about his former number one receiver and disputed that he was a cancer in the locker room.

"No, that is totally untrue," Ryan said in a conference call with the Chicago media. "That was one of the biggest … that's a joke. He wasn't that way at all. I really enjoyed him," Ryan said. "When this guy's healthy, he can be a game-changer. The first year we had him, he was a major, major factor in us winning games. My second year here, he helped lead us to the championship game. He looks kind of funny in that [No.] 14 [Bears] jersey."
