“Play Like A Jet” presents episode #9 of your weekly NY Jets debate show “What’s Your Point?” with Dalbin Osorio  vs Paulie Bruzzese. This week the guys do battle on four of the hottest topics surrounding the New York Jets in the aftermath of their loss to the Cleveland Browns:

  3. If he becomes available, should the Jets try to trade for Antonio Brown?
  4. Which Jets player, coach, executive, or other employee would be the most fun to take on a road trip?
