Mr_Jet Icon : (20 May 2015 - 11:58 AM) LOL. It's not where you pick, it's who you pick. Knicks fans should remember Russell Westbrook and Chris Paul were both #4 picks also.
RetireChrebet Icon : (20 May 2015 - 02:32 PM) Chan Gailey says Geno is the starter heading into the season. I believe Fitzpatrick is hurt and probably won't even make the roster due to injury otherwise Fitzpatrick should have got a fair shake.

Jetsfan115 Icon : (20 May 2015 - 03:08 PM) he just makes too many dumb mistakes
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (20 May 2015 - 04:23 PM) No excuses for Geno, we have a very good team and its up to the QB to not screw it up
Jetsfan115 Icon : (20 May 2015 - 04:43 PM) lol go back to the color coded sanchez system rex had
azjetfan Icon : (20 May 2015 - 06:48 PM) RACIST!

With Darrelle Revis out, Joe McKnight will move to cornerback in 'near full-time' role

The life-without-Darrelle Revis contingency plans are in full swing this week. And while Rex Ryan is mum on the strategy, he did say that the Jets will try and deploy some players who aren't cornerbacks to learn the position.

The most notable name is Joe McKnight, who has played the position before and has practiced there this season. Ryan said McKnight will maintain a role on offense -- where he has been seldom-used this season -- but will be in defensive meetings and practice at cornerback.

"We'll do that this week with Joe McKnight," Ryan said. "He'll have a role on offense, but we're also teaching him how to play corner in almost, not a full-time capacity but he's going to be there a ton -- in the meetings and everything else."

Ryan said he'll lean on secondary coaches Dennis Thurman and Jim O'Neil to bring McKnight along in the process.

"He's a guy we saw on scout team as a rookie that we know had the necessary skills," Ryan said. "He's got the speed, the size, the athleticism, the ball skills -- everything you look for in a corner. So, I don't think there's any reason not to think Joe McKnight can be a corner, it's just going to take time."

Jets running back Joe McKnight will play more cornerback to help fill the void left by Darrelle Revis' season-ending knee injury

Running back Joe McKnight will have an increased role as a cornerback moving forward. The Daily News reported two weeks ago that McKnight practiced a cornerback and met with defensive coaches in the run-up to the Steelers game in Week 2 – he didn’t get any reps at corner in the game – with Darrelle Revis out with a concussion.

On Wednesday, Rex Ryan admitted that McKnight’s role on defense will grow with Revis out for the season with an ACL tear.

“We’ll do that this week with Joe McKnight,” Ryan said. “He’ll have a role on offense, but we’re also teaching him how to play corner…. Not quite a full-time capacity, but he’s going to be over there a ton in the meetings and everything else.”

McKnight played defensive back in high school before USC’s Pete Carroll’s made him a full-time running back. McKnight was used as a blitzing defensive back on one play against the Ravens in Week 4 last season.

“He’s a guy that we saw on scout team when he was a rookie,” Ryan said. “He has the necessary skills to be able to play corner. He’s got the speed, the size, the athleticism, the ball skills. Everything you look for in a corner. So, I don’t think there’s any reason not to think that Joe McKnight couldn’t be a corner.”

“It’s just going to take time, obviously,” Ryan added. “But I think with (defensive backs coach) Dennis Thurman and (assistant defensive backs coach) Jimmy O’Neil over there, I think we got great teachers of the game. It’ll be interesting. I would not bet against Joe McKnight becoming a good corner.”

McKnight has played in only 3.4 percent of the offensive snaps through three weeks. (Seven out of a possible 204 offensive snaps).

Take the best athlete off of the most athletically challenged unit in football and stick him in a role that he hasn't played since high school. Sounds like a plan.

Exactly. This is pure desperation.
Fifteen years ago after an especially disappointing loss to Miami, Esiason, then the Jets' quarterback, was making the seven-mile drive from the Meadowlands back to Manhattan.
While he was slogging through stop-and-go traffic at the entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel, the car next to him was violently rear-ended. The quarterback threw his car into park, hopped out and ran to the woman whose car had been hit. She was wearing, of all things, an Esiason jersey, and was utterly shocked when he tapped on her window to check on her.
"Are you OK?" he said, trying to keep calm. "Are you OK?"
"Boomer? Is that you?" she asked the Good Samaritan, sounding disoriented. "I think I'm OK, but . ... "
But what?
"But you guys sucked."
Welcome to the New York Jets, Tim Tebow.

But we haven't used him for whatever reason (maybe he is a really bad pass protector?) so why not make use of him.

I'm interested to see how he does, Rex said before that he thought McKnight could play CB in the NFL. We'll see.

"I was drafted as a running back. The way I took it as I wasn't good enough to play running back, that's what I took it as. I don't know if that's the case or not."

McKnight sounds thrilled LMAO.
