What’s Your Point – Episode #13 Featuring Guest Judge Candice Lee

“Play Like A Jet” presents episode #13 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 immediately following the team’s 37-17 loss to the Minnesota Vikings at Metlife Stadium:

  1.  Did the Jets make the right move releasing Terrelle Pryor?
  2. If you were the coach of the Jets how would you handle players who get a little bit out of control on social media?
  3. If Todd Bowles were to be replaced at the end of the season with a current college head coach, which one would make the best choice?
  4.   The Rich Cimini/Manish Mehata feud is heating up, so if they did battle in a cage match, who would come out victorious?                               

You will hear the answers to these topics debated with special guest Candice Lee – former news anchor, current manager to the stars, and mother of a certain Jets linebacker (hint: her last name is Lee) – as the judge, jury, and executioner!
