Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:03 PM) Tanaka is looking like a stud
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:04 PM) Jets added Vick, Chris Johnson, and Eric Decker to the offense.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:04 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:04 PM) And this draft is loaded at the offensive skill positions
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:04 PM) Hopefully we can get anohter starting WR and starting TE in the draft
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:05 PM) Our offense could be much better than last year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:05 PM) can't get much worse than what it's been the last 2 years
santana Icon : (Today, 03:22 PM) Very cool
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 03:24 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 03:32 PM) still need another WR
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 03:33 PM) so i bet powell barely gets any touches this year and goodson gets cut
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 03:34 PM) Goodson is as good as gone.
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 03:34 PM) With all his legal issues and coming off injury he is done. Possibly even in the NFL
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:39 PM) Powell is average anyways.
Chaos Icon : (Today, 03:39 PM) @ProFootballTalk 5m

Per source, Chris Johnson's two-year deal has a base value of $8 million, with another $1 million available in incentives based on yardage.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:40 PM) He does a lot of things well, but isn't talented enough. Johnson has breakaway ability still and Ivory is man beast running the football
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:41 PM) We will get another WR in the draft. Even in round 2 you can get a starting WR
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 04:09 PM) I am still standing by my CB in the first round and WR in the second prediction
santana Icon : (Today, 05:19 PM) The title race is bale
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 05:34 PM) Sidney rice coming in for a visit
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 05:49 PM) I think the Jets are getting themselves ready to draft best player available
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 05:49 PM) Last year they stuck to their board
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 06:27 PM) if they sign him I think that means they look to take a CB round 1
2JBallar01 Icon : (Today, 06:32 PM) “@AdamSchefter: RB Chris Johnson's 2-year deal with Jets has a team option in it for year two. Jets have option to pick up year two at $4M in February 2015.”
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 06:51 PM) @AlbertBreer 2m
Sidney Rice has agreed to terms with the Seahawks on a one-year deal, per source.

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 06:55 PM) There is really only 2 CBs worth taking at 18
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 06:56 PM) I rather get a offensive playmaker
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:58 PM) LaMont Jordan was 34
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 06:59 PM) liar
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 07:05 PM) He wore #34 when he played for the JETS

McKnight will try WR with Jets

Joe McKnight has played running back and cornerback this season. Now, the Jets are trying him at wide receiver.

With several injuries to their wide receiving corps, the Jets are experimenting with McKnight at the position this week. The Jets worked with him in practice yesterday and McKnight said he is not sure what it means in regard to Sunday’s game against the Cardinals at MetLife Stadium.

Both Clyde Gates and Chaz Schilens suffered concussions in the loss to the Patriots on Thursday. Gates’ concussion appears to be serious; he was not on the practice field yesterday. Schilens practiced but was not permitted to speak to the media afterward. The team cited the league’s policy on head injuries.

CATCHING ON: Joe McKnight could play in his third position of the season against the Cardinals on Sunday, as the Jets worked him out at wide receiver yesterday.
Jeremy Kerley also was not at practice. He has been battling hamstring and heel injuries and has not returned punts the last two weeks.

McKnight was briefly used at cornerback this year when the Jets were thin at the position because of injuries.

The Jets have no creativity, McKnight has a lot of talent and they don't use him to his full ability. They should have played him more at WR a while ago, he can be a factor running the ball and catching the ball.

Agreed he should see the field more, even as a running back. He's definitely the best receiving back we have. Instead of allowing him to demonstrate that though, we've persisted in giving too many carries/touches to Shonn Greene because of Rex's ill-advised emphasis on ground and pound.

Seems like most of us have that weird feeling that McKnight as an eagle or saint or viking or dolphin or 49er would be a 600yd Rb just by catching short passes and sweeps

Definitely agree. He reminds me of Reggie Bush.

Are you saying he could be like our own version of darren sproles? If so, yes I agree. Apparently our front office and coaches don't see it.

First they wanted to try McKnight as a DB now they want him as a WR. This is not the f-cking PAC-10 or 12. He left college awhile ago. This team is a$$ backwards. He's a pro RB and should be used as that. They drafted Hill from a school know for not throwing to WR but used them as blockers. Hill sucks. Don't ruined McKnight's career like Tebow's career. The gimmick is over. This team is not going to win out and get in the playoffs. Scrap this team and start over with new staff and players.

yeah, ground and pound for 3 yards unless we need 3!

I don't think it's as desperate or crazy a move as trying him out at CB. Not in the slightest. McKnight has good hands, so it makes sense to use him in the slot where he can get into space and use his legs from there. As a running back, he'll be used to motioning out from the backfield, so it won't be exactly alien to him.
Even though he's had a couple fumbles recently, he's capable of making plays. And that's what we need on offense. If he can be half the player Reggie Bush or Darren Sproles is then great.

It shows how bad this team is that people want the backup QB and third string RB in more when they've hardly ever done anything. This isn't like Greene has some first round pick behind him. He's got a dude who pukes when he sprints.
