The Jets graduated Sunday. They beat a good Saints team, led by a good quarterback in Drew Brees, 26-20, through timely offense and fantastic defense.
The Jets lose another valuable member of their offense due to injury. Can Geno Smith still find a way to outscore Drew Brees?
Rex Ryan said Wednesday that despite Milliner’s struggles, the No. 9 overall selection is “a lot closer than I think (he’s) given credit for.” Milliner has started four games, but has also dealt with a hamstring injury that sidelined him three games.
