New York Jets – Where Are Additions Needed?

Looking at where the New York Jets still need to supplement their roster

Where aren’t additions needed, AMIRITE? Just kidding…Yes, the New York Jets are 32nd in ESPN’s “5 months before they actually play a real game” Power Rankings but of course we know that means nothing. The Jets have steadily improved arguably the league’s worst 2012 roster over the course of the off-season. You can make a very sensible argument that they are a bottom ten team on paper but fortunately the games aren’t played on paper. The Jets managed 6 wins last season with Mark Sanchez playing the worst football in the NFL at the quarterback position, Shonn Greene plodding around and Mardy Gilyard running routes on offense, while Bryan Thomas, Bart Scott and a severely banged up Sione Pouha took major reps on defense.

The roster is a work in progress but the progress is being made. Yet, there are still some depth charts holes that jump out in particular.

From Geno To Tebow – Jets Circus Shrinks In Size

TJ Rosenthal on the Rex Ryan and the New York Jets adapting to a new style of football and organization

The simultaneous roster changes that marked Geno Smith’s arrival and Tim Tebow’s exit show that John Idzik’s Jets do not value ESPN cameras, newspaper headlines and jersey sales over the notion of putting pieces in place to win. The Jets never had a plan for Tebow beyond hoping and praying that his abilities could somehow find a functional place within a sixty minute game. Smith was drafted last week by Idzik to win a job now, and with the circus dwindling in size, the big question that remains is whether Rex Ryan and Mark Sanchez, the two notable Mike Tannenbaum-era pieces can survive the purge.

Initial Reaction – New York Jets First Round Selections – DEFENSE!

Initial reaction to the New York Jets selecting Dee Milliner and Sheldon Richardson in the first round

Are we so sure that Rex Ryan is a lame duck coach who has no influence in Florham Park anymore? Tonight felt an awful lot like many previous drafts with Rex Ryan as the head coach, as the New York Jets selected a defensive lineman in the first round for the third straight year and added a cornerback in the first round for the second time in three years.

New York Jets – Looking Ahead to the 2013 Cornerbacks

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”
