As we begin a season that will feature the Islanders for once as a team to reckon with, they have troubling questions at the one position that they really need to have most if not all of the answers.
Some Jets fans don’t just want to replace Geno Smith after a bad game in the fourth week of his rookie season, they want to replace him with a guy with even less experience. That’s just amazing logic.
The Jets are by no means a great football team. But they have all the makings of being one some day because they are physical and impose their will in the places that matter most: the trenches.
Remember Santonio Holmes? The Buffalo Bills won’t forget him any time soon. And if the Jets are lucky, neither will Geno Smith.
There really needs to be no more talk of anyone other than Geno Smith being the starting quarterback of the Jets. You’d be amazed just how detached from reality some people are.
Anybody feel like catching the ball? How about tucking it away? Anybody? The Jets’ wide receivers are doing an already struggling rookie quarterback no favors.
Two weeks ago if anyone had said the Jets had a legitimate shot to go into Foxboro in Week 2 and win that person likely would have been laughed out of the room. But the NFL has a strange way of leveling the playing field.
Over the last 24 hours there has been an overemphasis on just how lucky Rex Ryan’s bunch got on Sunday against Tampa Bay. Frankly, it’s doing nothing more than showing the critics’ true colors.
Most of you wanted him and now you got him, along with all the craziness that’s sure to follow. Now you just have to ask yourself how patient you plan to be.
If you believe everything you read there’s really no reason for the Jets to even take the field this season. This idea of predicting three or four wins is just as silly as saying 11 or 12. You just don’t know.
The problems that plague the New York Jets have become much bigger than guys who wear uniforms, blow whistles, sit in secret bunkers and write checks.
Of all the so-called “stories” coming out of Jets training camp, the one that really needs to be addressed more is the health of one Chris Ivory.
The last thing Jets fans need to see during the second preseason game is Geno Smith not have plays called that give him the opportunity to win this quarterback competition.
For the Jets to exceed somewhat low expectations this season, they need Santonio Holmes to return and do what he does best — provide not just the requisite statistics, but more of his signature moments.
Chris Ivory will eventually be the guy for the Jets, but until he’s 100 percent Bilal Powell has a real opportunity to show he never should have been written off in the first place.
