The Jets are hiring Bears nat'l scout Rex Hogan as their director of college scouting. Chicago has released him from his contract

The Jets are also hiring Rams scout Brian Heimerdinger to a prominent front-office role. St. Louis let him out of his deal.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 07:48 PM) Heimerdinger is our director of player personnel now
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:12 PM) That is Mike Heimerdinger's son who used to be our OC in 05
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:12 PM) hopefully his son isn't as horrible as his pop was at play calling
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:17 PM) Everyone looks like a bad playcaller when you have no QB and have no talent
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:18 PM) When Heimerdinger was our OC it was when we had a ton of injuries on offense, were down to our 4th or 5th string QB

Mr_Jet Icon : (26 January 2015 - 06:47 PM) Thanks Obama.
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 January 2015 - 06:49 PM) But really for all of you complaining about the site. What is there to talk about? We have a new GM and HC that we don't know how good or bad they'll be yet. So there really isn't much to talk about with the draft still months away.
azjetfan Icon : (26 January 2015 - 09:59 PM) Even I can't blame Obama :drinks:

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 11:18 AM) Orlando Franklin, Mike Iupati, Clint Boling. Should sign one
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 12:34 PM) Franklin or Iupati would be great
ganggreen2003 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 01:46 PM) hey reg how did you make out in this storm?
ganggreen2003 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 01:47 PM) we got slammed with snow but the wind didn't knock out our power so I made out pretty unscathed here in RI
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:14 PM) What sucks is that the NFL isn't going to throw the book at those CHEATS even though they may be found GUILTY

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.

It is better to destroy than create what is meaningless, so the picture will not be finished.

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.
