Are we so sure that Rex Ryan is a lame duck coach who has no influence in Florham Park anymore?

The case for the New York jets drafting West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin
One of the most intriguing options for the New York Jets in the upcoming NFL Draft is West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin. Surprisingly there seems to be many Jets fans hesitant about using the 9th or 13th pick on him, despite him providing strong value at either location. Among the complaints I consistently hear about Austin are his lack of size, durability issues, a lack of need for him because of Jeremy Kerley being the team’s slot receiver and him not having the capability to be a lead playmaker on offense. These excuses to avoid Austin are misguided. The Jets offense is in desperate need for a player like Austin, who is a truly a “wow” player, something the Jets have lacked seemingly forever.

Mike Donnelly breaks down what is left of the New York Jets cornerbacks post Darrelle Revis trade
Now that Jets fans have had a day to mourn the loss of the greatest defensive player in team history, it’s time to look forward and pick up the pieces that are still here. With perhaps the best defensive coach in the league running the show, and centerpieces like Mo Wilkerson, Quinton Coples, and Antonio Cromartie, the defense is still likely to be amongst the league’s best. But without Number 24 out there in the secondary, the cornerback position will look much different. Let’s take a look at where the position stands now, and how the team will go about trying to replace Mr. Revis. Continue reading “New York Jets – Looking Ahead to the 2013 Cornerbacks”
The New York Jets have traded Darrelle Revis
A long anticipated trade was finally acted on today as the New York Jets traded cornerback Darrelle Revis to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a 2013 first rounder (13th overall) and a conditional 2014 fourth round pick that moves to a third rounder if Revis is still on Tampa on the 3rd league day of the 2014 season. Revis also signed a new 6 year, 96 million dollar contract with Tampa, which comes out to 16 million per year. However, none of the money is guaranteed. We have discussed our feelings on the potential of this trade previously (here, here, here, here and here among other places), but here is our thoughts now that the deal is confirmed and the compensation is known.
