Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:10 PM) lmao Jalen Saunders becoming a good return man with the Saints
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:10 PM) I think the Jets gave up on him too quickly.

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:13 PM) Pryor making a nice tackle there
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:13 PM) almost flipping that POS amendola head over heels
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:13 PM) I still think Pryor will be a good safety for us, just put in a bad situation this season due to how bad we are at CB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:14 PM) I'm excited for the season to end to see what changes are made
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 01:15 PM) Me too
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:15 PM) I'm already putting Pryor into the Miliner category = BUST
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 01:15 PM) If Woody cleans house it should be an attractive place to come too. Some talent and a lot of cap space.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:16 PM) incomplete
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:17 PM) at least the D is shutting them down so far
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:17 PM) That's good for you. Injuries derailed a promising season for Milber
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:17 PM) but our O is horrendous
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:17 PM) another 3 & Out coming up for the JETS O

azjetfan Icon : (Today, 01:21 PM) Geno waited to long to run
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:21 PM) That 3 & Out was brought to you by Marty Morningwhig
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:22 PM) If you want your D to get worn down...you get a Marty Morningwhig led O to do that
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:25 PM) Marty Mornhinweg is restricted by Rex
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:26 PM) We will never have a good offense under Rex
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:26 PM) Unless we had a proven veteran QB and good OL
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:28 PM) lmao @ brady
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:28 PM) Just keep hitting Brady
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:29 PM) I will miss seeing this defense vs Brady. Rex usually gives him more trouble than most do
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:30 PM) will the O please have a drive longer than 3 & Out
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:32 PM) I wish we would injure Brady

Jets Antonio Allen hopes to 'lock down' starting safety spot

Antonio Allen depended on Josh Bush during his rookie season last year.

The two were both first-year safeties, seventh and sixth round picks, respectively. Both were learning a complicated new system that demanded a speedy learning curve. Both were parsing a giant playbook.

And, of course, Bush had a car. Allen did not.

"He was the one who drove us from the facility and back to the hotel," Allen said, laughing. "So we're pretty tight."

Now the two are direct competitors for the second safety spot along with former second-round pick and Eagles castaway Jaiquawn Jarrett. Defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman declared as much last week during a conference call with season-ticket holders, saying that the starter alongside Dawan Landry will be determined through the offseason.

Offseason training activities begin for the Jets today.

Allen said that Thurman never told the safeties directly about a competition although it was apparent early on this offseason. Dueling reps have become a running scorecard between the two.

"I can see it out there on the field, you know?" Allen said. "He takes me out, puts Josh in. He takes Josh out, puts me in. So, it's a healthy competition at the end of the day."

He hopes his ability as a playmaker can stand out during these reps. At South Carolina, he wasn't typically asked to be a pure safety and is still adjusting to the position. He appeared in seven games last year, mostly on special teams, and recovered a fumble. Bush appeared in all 16, also largely in a special teams role.

Allen knows Bush would still give him a lift if need be, though. They remain friends despite the competition, one of at least eight open battles that will determine opening-day starters.

"I'm all up for it," Allen said. "We're all close in the DB room but obviously someone needs to get the start. I'm just trying to come here and compete. I just try and do what I do best, and that's make plays.

"Hopefully, me doing that will lock down that position."

Good rivalry there... I enjoyed my time in Columbia seeing it first hand.
