Topics I've Started
Posted 28 Sep 2014So a lot of fans are calling for Vick to be the JETS QB going forward. I disagree with that sentiment and here is why. After only having 20 games under his belt and 16 of which he didn't have any talent on the offensive side last season, these first four games are obviously not the most impressive to start the season, but the talent surrounding Geno isn't the best either, and you can put anyone out there from Y.A. Tittle to Peyton Manning and they would still struggle with this OFFENSIVE offensive talent. Now this falls in the lap of the other guy I have been putting my support behind John Idzik. What Idzik needs to do is get some better talent to help Geno but even if we get them in now, it will not be an overnight connection with Geno. A lot of people have their hands in this subpar stew and it does include Geno who has to produce with who he has at the WR/TE talent. Marty has to put Geno in positions to succeed with this subpar talent. Rex needs to not just be a "defensive genius" and figure out how to turn this season around. Idzik needs to try to find some more talent at the WR spot. The WR's and TE's we have on this roster need to start catching the damn ball. The RB's need to do a better job at catching the ball out of the backfield, block better for Geno and just use their breaking tackle talents and get positive yards. The OL needs to allow Geno time to go through his progressions. The Fans need to know that we have a guy who is young and had no talent around him for his first season and not much has improved in year 2 after 4 games.
Vick is certainly not the answer for the following reasons:
1) He's only a 1 year stop gap if we find that Geno is not the answer
2) He's a small fragile QB
3) He's injury prone
So at the end of the first "quarter" of the season, the only real answer is GENO is the QB that needs to be given a shot to learn and we can legitimately figure out if going into 2015 and beyond that he is the answer or we need to go back to square 1.

Running Game after the 1st drive
It was an overall ugly game with a lot of duds and not many studs.
Posted 26 Sep 2014So after 2 subpar and disappointing games against the Packers and Bears we take on our 3rd straight NFC North team in the Detroit Lions, we could of been 3-0 going into this game if the ball had bounced our way and a few calls hadn't been called against us, but instead we go into this game with the chance of walking out 2-2 or 1-3.
As the 3rd of what has to be one of the toughest schedules I've remembered in a long time of watching the JETS, facing QB's that are either surefire HOF's (Rodgers, Manning, Brady) and All-Pro QB's (Cutler, Stafford, Rivers) all in a 6 week time frame. The fact is that even for all the talent this team has on both the Offensive and Defensive lines, we lack the weapons and talent in the WR and secondary. If the season were to end tomorrow our biggest contributor is Nick Folk, YES NICK FOLK a KICKER!!!!
If the JETS reduce their mistakes, the referees stop bending us over and screwing us, and the talent that we have on this roster actually contribute and yes that especially includes our 2nd year QB Geno Smith the JETS can win this weekend against a very tough Detroit team. Our secondary better be on their A game trying to contain one of the best WR's in the game in Calvin "Megatron" Johnson, and our OL needs to keep Ndamakoung Suh, Zeke Ansah and Nick Fairley from making Geno Smith a part of the JETLIFE turf.
So it's going to be a tough game and it could be the turning point of the JETS 2014 season or it very well could be a sign of a lost season.
I have always been a supporter of Geno Smith and I still think that we have a talented roster minus a swiss cheese secondary. When 4pm rolls around on Sunday, the JETS should be 2-2 and at the halfway point of a very tough 6 week stretch.
Posted 26 Sep 2014FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The New York Jets' Dee Milliner didn't practice all week, and coach Rex Ryan said the cornerback was doubtful for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions at MetLife Stadium due to a lingering quad injury.
"Don't feel really good about that one," Ryan said Friday.
Milliner missed the loss to the Chicago Bears with a quad injury after missing the first game of the season with a high ankle sprain. Milliner had four tackles against the Green Bay Packers, when he was in on 56 percent of the team's defensive snaps.
That's not a lot of time during a 1-2 season in which Milliner was expected to be the Jets' top cornerback. Third-round draft pick Dexter McDougle didn't even make it to the regular season after tearing his left ACL in August.
So the Jets' cornerback situation this season has been fluid.
Antonio Allen has been converted from safety to corner, where he will remain for the duration of the year according to defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman.
"It's cool," Allen said as he tries to adjust to an increased media demand that comes with the starting spot.
"It's altered our depth [at safety] for sure," Thurman said. "The thing that you try to do is you try to put the best 11 football players out there that you can. And the positions they play may not always be exact for some, but you still want your best 11 players on the field and we feel like he's one of our best 11."
Allen has done fairly well in his new role, as has former backup Darrin Walls. Walls had a pass interference call last week that many on the Jets questioned, but for the most part his coaches have given Walls good reviews.
"He's going to be hard to move out of there," Ryan said of Walls.
Walls said he and Allen are developing more confidence as a pair.
"For me it's what I wanted," Walls said. "Everyone coming into the league wanted to be a starter."
The Jets' secondary will face a big test against the Lions and Calvin Johnson. Johnson practiced Friday for the first time all week, but Walls has been expecting him all along.
"I knew he was going to play regardless," Walls said. "He said he couldn't wait to play against us so pretty much figured he was going to play."
Are any of you ready to join me in thinking this guy is a bust? He's injury prone, last year and even in the games he's played this year he gets burned like toast. I think we should cut the cord on this guy. Time for Idzik to go get us a CB who is not sitting on the bench with an injury or getting burned like a bad sunburn.
