The long off season looms
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 07:25 PM) Then they can re-sign Harrison, FItzpatrick, Ivory, and maybe Powell.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 09:59 AM) Kaepernick apparently wants out of SF and wants to join the Jets
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 09:59 AM) Guess he sees the Jets as a team with a great WR tandem and a quality OC who builds a offense around the players
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 February 2016 - 10:29 AM) No thanks
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 February 2016 - 10:29 AM) Unless he's dirt cheap
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 February 2016 - 10:30 AM) The jets would be fools to take on that contract
Jetsfan115 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 02:09 PM) keep powell, snakcs, wilkerson, and fitz. let ivory walk, trade richardson, cut cromartie, restructure brick
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 04:18 PM) Marshall said no to Kaepnerick, he wants FItzpatrick as his QB
vjdbbq Icon : (04 February 2016 - 12:07 PM) Where's Rob ? I need some ass shots !!!!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (07 February 2016 - 04:16 PM) its crazy how dead this site is
MikeGangGree... Icon : (07 February 2016 - 04:16 PM) its super bowl Sunday!!

santana Icon : (07 February 2016 - 07:25 PM) Zzzz
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (07 February 2016 - 09:03 PM) I want to see Manning go out on top
vjdbbq Icon : (07 February 2016 - 11:03 PM) Jerricho got screwed on the call in the first quarter but he dropped a few later on .
vjdbbq Icon : (07 February 2016 - 11:04 PM) Screw Manning and his chicken parm .
MikeGangGree... Icon : (07 February 2016 - 11:29 PM) We need a pass rushing LB!! Look at Denver.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (07 February 2016 - 11:30 PM) Nothing against manning but he wasn't good at all this year and gives me hope that we can reach a super bowl with Fitzpatrick
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (08 February 2016 - 06:42 AM) Denver has two future HOF edge rushers with Miller and Ware.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (08 February 2016 - 08:01 PM) NO to kapergimmick
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:37 AM) Yes to Kaepernick, he'd be great here!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:28 PM) I cant stop thinking what are we going to do about Wilk
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:30 PM) right now we sit about 9 mill under the cap. we save 8 mil after we cut Cro
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:31 PM) I cant see us keeping Cro when we have Williams. Also we save 0 by cutting Milliner his 4 mil would just be dead money so we might not cut him
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:32 PM) so after we cut Cro we are 17 Million under the cap
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:32 PM) If we cut Brick we save another 9
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:35 PM) Mangold is owed 8.5 mil
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:35 PM) Maybe we redo Brick and Mangold deals to free up some room
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:37 PM) I just don't see us paying brick 14 mil next season. not when he wasn't good last season. so if we cut Brick and Cro we are 26 Mil under the cap
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:38 PM) Kerley and Cumberland save us 3 mil total
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:38 PM) that would be 29 Mil
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:40 PM) breno giacomini Saves us another 4 mil
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:40 PM) that's would be 33 mil under the cap
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:41 PM) Maybe we redo Bricks deal and move him to RT?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:41 PM) idk....just saying
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:42 PM) I really think we need Snacks more than we need Wilk.... I'm not in no way saying hes better than Wilk
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:42 PM) We have Rich and Williams if we lose Wilk
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:43 PM) Before everyone starts saying "Mike wants us to trade Wilk" I want to say that I think we should keep the guy
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:44 PM) But if we are going to lose Wilk we better Tag and Trade him
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:44 PM) DO not let us lose him and get nothing back
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:46 PM) So if we trade Wilk we get a 1st rounder[at least] and we can Take a LT and a OLB in the 1st round.... Not sure who is out there to draft yet
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:47 PM) And maybe move Brick to RTA
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:47 PM) RT

NY Jets running back Joe McKnight practices at cornerback in preparation for game against Pittsburgh Steelers

The Jets may expand Joe McKnight’s role in an unconventional way against the Steelers on Sunday. The Daily News has learned that McKnight, who was beaten out by Bilal Powell for the Jets’ third-down running back job, practiced at cornerback this week.

McKnight played in just three of the Jets’ 67 snaps in Week 1, according to Pro Football Focus. His primary responsibilities will be at running back, but the Jets may use him as an emergency cornerback in Pittsburgh. McKnight took some practice reps all week and met with defensive coaches to prepare for the task, according to sources.

The Jets are down to only four healthy cornerbacks on the active roster after All-Pro Darrelle Revis (concussion) was ruled out for the game. The Jets typically have carried six cornerbacks on their roster in the past.
Ryan can’t have enough good corners against the Steelers, who could feature four- and five-wide receiver looks.

McKnight got a taste of defense in 2011. He was used as a blitzing back on one play against the Ravens in Week 4.

McKnight played cornerback and free safety in high school. He was recruited as a DB before Pete Carroll turned him into a full-time RB at USC.

McKnight is not the first Jets player this year to cross over to the other side of the ball in practice. Cornerback Antonio Cromartie worked at wide receiver in training camp with the expectation that Gang Green would have a “Cro Package” for him. Cromartie, of course, declared himself the second-best wideout on the team in camp.

Ugh!

Hey guys lets play our RB at corner. I just don't like it. You have DB's on the team. If he wants to prep him in case someone else goes down for depth purposes then I'm good with that but I don't want him touching the field on D if he doesn't have to.

They only have 3 CBs going into this game, with Revis and Trufant being out. McKnight can probably do a better job than Trufant anyways.

Why wouldn't they go with Josh Bush at 4th CB before McKnight?

Maybe they will, idk. Rex has always talked up McKnight's athleticism and says he would make a good CB.

They wouldn't put him out there if they didn't have to. its not like they are doing this for fun, its a legitimate need. pats have been doing it successfully with multiple receivers for over a decade now.
