New York Jets Back In Black – “Detroit Duck City”

Dan Marcus hands out game balls for the New York Jets pre-season debut

There’s a few tell-tale signs that the season’s are on the precipice of change: the distinct smell of an over-the-top tailgate, Ray Lucas handing out grades that aren’t in the alpha-numeric system, and the collective groan of a beleaguered fan base as Mark Sanchez throws yet another pick to a lineman, this could only mean one thing: Jets football is back. With it comes a post series that I have been doing for quite some time; during the season I hand out “Game Balls” after every win but since this is the Preseason and the games don’t count, we honor those who had stand-out performances with the Black Jersey.

Mike O’Connor breaks down the film on New York Jets CB Darrin Walls in 2012. What can we expect from him this season?

When Darrelle Revis went down for the year in Week 3 of the 2012 season, the Jets were forced to look into the cornerback pool in search of depth to make up for his absence. Among their signings was former Falcons’ corner Darrin Walls to the practice squad. Very little was made of the move, but few could have predicted that Walls, the Notre Dame alum, would be playing significant snaps later in the season. Today, we step into the film room to take a closer look at how he played and what he could contribute in 2013.
