First a few updates:
1. As I am sure most have heard by now, Neil Rackers has signed with the Texans who threw 4 million dollars at him to compete with Kris Brown. You can’t blame Houston who watched Brown lose about 8 games for them last year on last second kicks. However, this leaves the Jets in a difficult situation at kicker (by the way I completely jinxed them in my article today by saying Tannenbaum always gets his man). Look for the Jets to now target Shayne Graham or Matt Stover. Rex Ryan is familiar with Stover, which could give him a leg up…witty pun intended. There is no way they can go into camp with just Nick Folk on the roster.
2. In a matter of a few hours today, Rich Cimini wondered if the Jets would pursue Marc Bulger but then reported the Jets have no interest in him as a back-up to Mark Sanchez. He also reported the Jets have a high amount of interest in Clemson DE/OLB Ricky Sapp, who could be somebody the Jets trade down a few spots for and still get.
3. Man, I hate Duke.
No Neil Rackers & My 2010 Ideal Jets Schedule
Considering I didn’t want to leave up an article based around Neil Rackers being on the Jets as the top story on the site, I figured I should add a second post today. The NFL schedule isn’t being announced until April 13th but before they get to it, here is how I’d like to see the Jets 16 games break down:
Week 1: Home Vs. Miami, Monday Night Football – Like most Jets fans, I want to get the taste of those two ridiculous losses to the Dolphins out of my mouth as soon as possible. When better than opening night at the stadium for the green and white?
Week 2: At Buffalo – Let’s start out the year 2-0 with a couple of division wins.
Week 3: At Chicago – Before it gets too cold and windy for Sanchez.
Week 4: Home Vs. Cincinnati – Playoff re-match action to close up the first fourth of the season.
Week 5: At Pittsburgh – Tough early season test on the road.
Week 6: Vs. Green Bay – Interesting match-up, hopefully it goes the same way it did last time the Packers traveled to play the Jets.
Week 7: At New England, Sunday Night Football – Big prime-time showdown.
Week 8: Vs. Houston – Tough second fourth of the season for the Jets but it sets up well for a nice second half run like last year.
Week 9: Bye – Split the season in half again.
Week 10: At Cleveland – Let’s ease out of the bye week with Mangini and company.
Week 11: Vs. Baltimore, Thanksgiving Night – Great showdown for national audience between Rex and his old team.
Week 12: At Denver – 10 days to prepare for the trip out to Mile High.
Week 13: Vs. Buffalo – Finish up the season sweep of the Bills.
Week 14: At Detroit – Stafford vs. Sanchez
Week 15: Vs. Minnesota, Sunday Night Flex – Jets beat up on Favre in primetime.
Week 16: Vs New England – For the division? Glad we are home.
Week 17: At Miami – Erik Ainge gets the start.
Why yes, I’d love a job Mr. Goodell
I Agree Rex, Those Refs Were BS
Good Stuff As Usual
