In the off-season the New York Jets were slammed for their “Rex-odus” of free agents. Lost in the criticism of all the veterans they let walk was the fact that nearly every decision was a wise one, which the numbers through nine games this season bear out. Beyond that, there had been some outrage when the Jets cut ties with a handful of players on their roster earlier this year…again nearly every decision was a wise one. Need proof? Have a look:
Safety LaRon Landry – Missed 4 out of 10 games so far for the Colts. Zero sacks. Zero forced fumbles. Zero interceptions. 1 pass defensed.Running Back Shonn Greene – Missed 5 out of 10 games so for the Titans. 26 carries for 90 yards at 3.5 yards per carry.
