Topics I've Started
Posted 4 Dec 2013I don’t follow college and have no clue about any potential prospects until it gets closer to the draft so this may be complete nonsense.
What are the potential prospects of Mettenberger? From what I do know, he’s already running a pro offense and has been coached by Cam Cameron. I’ve read that he was a potential 1st rounder before the ACL injury he just suffered. Now if the Jets are set on running another year with Geno, Mettenberger might be the perfect pick for the Jets. He would be a late pick with great upside, allow the Jet to use their current 1st in 2014 for another offense position instead of taking yet another QB, and give Geno a shot with new weapons acquired through draft and free agency.

QuoteResentment could return to Jets locker room
The Jets locker room is at a delicate juncture in the season. The offense’s struggles could easily lead to some resentment from the defense, something we’ve seen to differing degrees in each of the last two seasons.
The new book “Collision Low Crossers” that documents the 2011 Jets season shows just how much tension there was between the two units with the defense feeling it was doing its job but getting no help from the other side of the ball.
A similar feeling existed last year with the tension becoming evident after the team lost to the Titans in December when Antonio Cromartie shouted he wouldn’t talk to reporters because he did not want to tell the truth.
Now, the Jets are in similar territory. They are 5-5, the same record as 2011 and one game better than at the same point in 2012. The defense has played well up front and been dominant at times. The offense is struggling with Geno Smith committing a ton of turnovers.
After Sunday’s 37-14 loss to the Bills, you could sense the frustration building in members of the defense.
“We’ve seen that for the last six years,” linebacker Calvin Pace said. “Throw the ball to the other team, you will lose.”
Pace also declined to answer another question, saying his answer would not be good for the team.
The makeup of this team is significantly different than in the past few years. The defense has a lot of new faces. But you still wonder if this thing goes south, will the locker room come apart?

@mortreport: Ed Reed and Jets on verge of agreement, per league sources.
TIL, Steinberg has better sources than the Jets beat writers.

QuoteDarrelle Revis tells “bitter” Jets fans to “let it go”
Darrelle Revis‘ new football team picked up their first win of the season Monday night.
It was Revis’ old team, or rather the fans of his old team, that were the focus in the locker room after the game.
Revis vented to Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post over “bitter” New York Jets fans that have constantly sent him threatening messages and harassed him on Twitter.
“You’ve got to have a backbone, because guys are saying, ‘F–k you!’ and ‘I want to kill you!’ It’s crazy, but I’ve been getting death threats from them since my first holdout [in 2010]. It’s just bitter Jets fans,” Revis said.
Revis lashed out last week at a Jets’ fan on Twitter who questioned whether Revis would rather have the $16 million contract he had on a winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers team or the $12 million deal he was under with the 5-4 Jets. Revis said he’d rather have the extra $4 million and didn’t back off of what he said on Twitter Monday night.
Revis said he’s not bitter at the Jets organization, just Jets’ fans that can’t let go of the fact that he no longer plays for the team and wants to blame him for that fact.
“They’re still not over the fact that I’m not there no more, and they give me crap all the time on Twitter,” Revis said. “If they would understand the business of it and understand what happened, then maybe they would know and maybe they would quit trying to point the finger at me. That’s where it is.”
Revis sealed the Buccaneers’ first victory of the season with an interception of Ryan Tannehill with less than two minutes to play. Revis said he doesn’t regret any of the circumstances that led to him playing for Tampa Bay this year.
“No regrets at all,” Revis said “Definitely no regrets. I’m fine. I’m going to make plays regardless of where I play. It doesn’t matter where I play.”

Quote@MikeGarafolo: Jets RB Mike Goodson indicted on weapons charges, Morris Co prosecutor's office says in a press release.
@MikeGarafolo: Goodson was indicted on unlawful possession of a weapon (2nd degree) and unlawful possession of prohibited weapon (hollow-point bullets).
@MikeGarafolo: Driver of the car (Garant Evans) also indicted on those charges and also on "certain persons not to have weapon" (i.e. convict).
QuoteJets’ Mike Goodson indicted on weapons charge
Jets running back Mike Goodson has been indicted on a charge that he possessed firearms and illegal ammunition, the prosecutor’s office in Morris, New Jersey, announced today.
The indictment stems from the May 17 incident in which New Jersey State Police found Goodson and Garant Evans, who was also indicted, in a car that had a Taurus .45 caliber handgun loaded with a hollow point bullet.
Goodson was indicted on charges of second degree unlawful possession of a weapon and fourth degree prohibited weapons and devices.
Following the arrest the Jets kept Goodson away for most of the offseason, and he was suspended for the first four games of the season. When he finally made his Jets debut in October he played well, but he was lost for the season to a knee injury in his second game.
