santana Icon : (Today, 01:58 PM) Blew through the lbs
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:01 PM) and of course we let them almost break it on the kickoff
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:01 PM) but it's a penalty against them so it's null
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:01 PM) f*** THE patriots
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:02 PM) noone touched him and he fell down like a BITCH
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 02:04 PM) The secondary is playing well above their heads this game.
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 02:06 PM) Woodys wife is young and hot. I didn't expect any different
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 02:07 PM) Harvin is $$$$$
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:07 PM) Yay or Nay on Harvin in 2015?
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 02:08 PM) Keeper. Try to get his $$ under control but either way
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:13 PM) That was a good catch against Mevis
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:13 PM) yes, Keep Harvin. The dude is a playmaker
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:13 PM) Hes playing with a sprained ankle too, hes tough
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:14 PM) Harvin and Decker could be the best WR combo we had in a long time
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:14 PM) we might actually take the lead into half
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:14 PM) I expect Jace Amaro to emerge more next season, TEs usually start off slow and they give Cumberland more playing time for some reason
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:15 PM) GET 7 HERE
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:16 PM) we settle for 3
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:16 PM) With the right coach and QB, we could have a good offense next season. Also improve the OL a bit
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:16 PM) We aren't far off from a playoff team to be honest. and we have a ton of cap space
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:17 PM) but we need a GM who knows what the hell he's doing
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:17 PM) Dalton Freeman is a really good backup center, I think he'll end up being a starter. Maybe our future starter
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:17 PM) we might have a shit ton of cap space but if we keep drafting busts it won't matter
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 02:17 PM) Is Paul Hackett back? 3 and 8 and we runa draw?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:18 PM) yes that is true too, we need to get rid of Idzik because I don't trust him hiring a new HC, using our top pick well, or using our cap space
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:18 PM) great coverage
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:19 PM) SACKED!!!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:19 PM) RICHARDSON
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:19 PM) SHELDON!!!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:19 PM) Richardson is gonna get paid, him and Wilkerson will cost big bucks
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:20 PM) The STUD Sheldon
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:20 PM) 7.5 sacks for Richardson
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:20 PM) now we need to get aggressive in the 2nd half
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:21 PM) if Rex wasn't so disinterested in the Offense I'd consider him to return but he could give a flying f*** about the O so I want him gone
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:22 PM) and those sweater vests are the most hideous things in the world
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:22 PM) if only we could keep REx as a DC
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:23 PM) he'll be the next HC of the Chicago Bears
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:26 PM) That'll be interesting, bring back the monsters of midway
jetfan4life12 Icon : (Today, 02:28 PM) It's nice to see the jets giving 100% every play. Why can't they do that every week
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:29 PM) cause we don't have the talent
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:29 PM) we are mediocre
jetfan4life12 Icon : (Today, 02:29 PM) 0099 Harvin is another Devon Hester
jetfan4life12 Icon : (Today, 02:30 PM) similar to Hester

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.
