The Trash Talk Begins

It looks the Bills have provided the Jets with some bulletin board fodder.

In the opening game of the season, Jets kick returner Chad Morton returned two kickoffs for touchdowns. That game still sticks in the craw of Bills special teamer DaShon Polk.
"It hurts, it still hurts," Polk told the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. "Right now I'm picturing that opening kickoff on Sunday. I hope we get to kickoff to start the game so we can put some wood to him and let him know, 'don't think it's going to happen again.'

It gets worse.

"[Morton's] not that great," Polk said. "Obviously a lot of teams saw that game and teams made an effort to stop him, so I can't see that happening."
Polk makes a valid point about teams stopping Morton. Since his tour-de-force in Buffalo, other teams have done a great job containing him.

Morton was unavailable for comment Friday. Herman Edwards refused to engage in mud-slinging.

"I don't comment on what players say," Edwards said.

Notes:

Wayne Chrebet didn't practice on Friday, but  Edwards said he was just giving him the day off. Chrebet is not on the injury list. Laveranues Coles, who is listed as probable with a slight back problem, returned to practice on Friday and will start.
Dave Szott who was activated off the PUP list on Tuesday is not going to play this Sunday. The Jet are targeting the Oakland Raider game next week for his return. Edwards isn't getting his hopes up too high about what Szott, five months removed from a knee injury, can contribute.

"You can't expect a whole lot from him after he missed most of the season," Edwards said.
