Claude Noel tries to temper the early season hype around the Jets' 3-1-1 record: "It’s little bit early. I like what I see, we all like what we see in the fact we’ve managed this thing and right now we’re 3-1-1. But let’s keep things in perspective. It’s a shortened season. We just want to make sure we control our balance a little bit because this thing could go everywhere and then we have to manage it with the same type of balance." [WFP]

Is the 2013 Jets' roster more disciplined than last year's? Coach Noel sure thinks it's improved. [Winnipeg Sun]

Though it wasn't a thing of beauty, Al Montoya's performance Sunday versus the New York Islanders was enough to secure an all-important win. [WFP]
