First a few updates:

1. Follow Turn On The Jets on Facebook, Twitter (TurnOnTheJets) and now also find our writing featured at www.profootballnyc.com. The site has just started up and we will have a radio program going by mid-August, beyond that I should be doing some appearances on the New York Sports Exchange, so you will have the opportunity to hear  plenty of my voice during the 2010 season.

2. I am huge fan of Antonio Cromartie going by “Alcrotraz” opposite Revis Island. Check out this well-made “Shutter Island” parody poster created by Gary Grund on Twitter.

3. New Turn On The Jets TV is coming this Monday and I can already promise that it will be your favorite episode yet.

Weekend Video Clips And Skepticism About Brunell

Before I get into the weekend video clips, just a few words about the imminent signing of Mark Brunell and release of Kellen Clemens. How could you feel more comfortable with Brunell stepping in for an injured Mark Sanchez in 2010 instead of Clemens? Mark Brunell didn’t throw a single pass in 2007 or 2008 and only threw 30 passes for the Saints last year. He completed 15 of them and threw an interception with no touchdowns. The guy is 39 years old and has never played in Brian Schottenheimer’s offense. I know Kellen Clemens could barely get out of his own way against Tampa Bay last season but at least he started a bunch of games in 2007 and started a meaningful game in 2009. He is younger and more athletic than Brunell and above all knows Schottenheimer’s offense inside and out. Why not keep Clemens as the #2 and let Brunell be the #3, where he is basically a player/coach for Sanchez? After watching him last pre-season, I think I may even feel better about Erik Ainge stepping in for an injured Sanchez over Brunell. It could be a disaster of Rick Mirer proportions if Sanchez misses any extended time in 2010.

One thought on “Weekend Video Clips And Skepticism About Brunell

  1. Ummm… did I read that right? Kellen Clemens is more athletic than Mark Brunell? Mark Brunell could be 80 years old in a wheelchair and he’d still be more athletic than Kellen ‘Every Side is the Blind Side’ Clemens. That being said, I think neither of them should have a place on the Jets. Brunell does NOT have any bullets left in the Ol’ gun, and Clemens never figured out how to shoot his gun.

    I would keep O’Connell and Ainge as the backups even if Sanchez goes down. Shotty can adjust the playbook accordingly and the Jets will have experienced, capable, and cheap backups for the future. Shotty’s QB’s historically do WAY better with a limited playbook anyway.
