The New York Jets’ secondary took a few big hits Friday.
Dee Milliner was the ninth overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. Two years later? He’s just another guy hoping to stick with an NFL team.
Last season the Jets’ secondary was so bad it directly played a role not only in the team’s brutal 4-12 record, but also this offseason’s reshaping of the entire front office and coaching staff. Now, it’s a strength.
Rex Ryan said seeing Darrelle Revis in a Patriots uniform makes him “a little sick to my stomach.”
Starting cornerback Dee Milliner was placed on season-ending injured reserve with a torn Achilles tendon on Monday, and the Jets signed cornerback Josh Thomas to take his spot on the roster.
This disaster of a football team is depressing enough for me, but what does it say about all of you who are paying for the privilege of getting overly worked up every home game?
Dee Milliner was seen leaving MetLife Stadium on a cart after the game, crutches at his side. Coach Rex Ryan said simply that it was an Achilles tendon injury, but nothing more.
Dennis Thurman knows an interception is coming. He can feel it. It’s just a matter of when.
Along with getting Smith some confidence that he can do the job in the bright lights of New York City, the Jets also need to focus in on a San Diego team that very easily could be 4-0 (lost in season opener to Arizona 18-17) had it not blown an early 17-6 fourth quarter lead against the Cardinals.
Milliner, the team’s top cornerback, has only played in one game this season after missing most of training camp and the opener with a high ankle sprain.
The New York Jets’ wide receiver, recovering from tightness in his right hamstring, is expected to play Sunday despite being listed as questionable on the team’s injury report Friday.
Calvin Johnson is looming for the New York Jets’ still-shaky secondary. The Detroit Lions’ wide receiver is a tall task, in more ways than one, and Rex Ryan knows it.
The sideline was a crowded place for the New York Jets during practice Wednesday.
Worse than anything, they’ll prove themselves strong enough to stay with good teams, but just bad enough to fall short. So near, and yet so far. And that’s the worst way to lose.
Press-man coverage, zone coverage, whatever. Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery cause opponents fits, and they’ll be looking to do more of the same against the Jets.
