Rex wants to increase rushing attempts Dan Leberfeld

The Jets ran the ball 27 times, and threw it 29, in their win against Pittsburgh.

Rex Ryan wants to up the run ante.

“I’d rather run it twice as much as that,” Ryan said.  “We ran it great against an excellent football team, a great team at stopping the run.  (We) made some big runs.”
 
Running the football successfully is essential for the Jets, a team that wants to take pressure off their young quarterback.
