Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio takes a closer look at New York Jets kicker Nick Folk.
Since New York Jets General Manager John Idzik took over, one mantra that everyone around Florham Park has been preaching is “competition.” We have a Quarterback competition, a Left Guard competition, a Tight End competition, a Safety competition, and a Wide Receiver competition. All of these competitions have received their fair share of warranted attention. However, one competition that seems to have been overlooked is the competition at Kicker between the incumbent Nick Folk and former Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff, the latter best known for the following kick…

Cole Patterson with a closer look at New York Jets NT Kenrick Ellis, a key component of the defense
The New York Jets have had a string of success in recent years in regards to the big-men that anchor the defense. Shaun Ellis, Kris Jenkins, Mike DeVito, Sione Pouha, and now, Muhammad Wilkerson highlight the bunch. Much has been made of the current incarnation of the Jets defensive line that features three first round picks in Wilkerson, Quinton Coples, and Sheldon Richardson. These three will be keys to the Jets success, both defensively and overall, for the foreseeable future. However, Kenrick Ellis, the forgotten man of the Jets defensive line rotation, holds a good deal of the Jets defensive fate in his massive hands.

Word out of Florham Park is that the New York Jets have placed fullback/H-Back Lex Hilliard on IR. Luckily, there is a potentially prototypical, West Coast H-back waiting in the wings to upgrade the unsung position. Enter: Tommy Bohanon.

Dan Marcus on what New York Jets quarterback gives the team the best chance to win
With the Jets Quarterback “Competition” coming (hopefully) to an inevitable culmination sometime after Saturday’s preseason game against the Giants, the length of time it has taken to arrive at any type of decision has caused a stir among members of the media. The Daily News’ Manish Mehta went so far as to call the whole thing a “farce,” a charade orchestrated by John Idzik to make it seem as though his Second-round draft pick wasn’t merely being handed the job. With Manish, I really can never be sure if he’s operating on information from one of his infamous unnamed sources or if it’s merely conjecture. Thus far, to the objective observer, it seems as though Sanchez is the “leader in the clubhouse” to get the nod Week 1 but according to Mehta’s report, all Smith needs to do is play a couple quarters of mistake-free football and the job is his.
Call me skeptical but I just have a tough time believing this, considering that Smith has not showed much (if at all) to prove that he 1) deserves the job and 2) can handle the rigors associated with being a Rookie QB in the NFL. If you ask me, there are two questions that the Jets’ brass and fans alike need to ask themselves before deciding who they want under center Week One:
