New York Jets
Eric Decker is ready to play again. The New York Jets’ wide receiver hopes his ailing right hamstring allows him to.
The rumblings outside the team’s facility have already begun with some fans and media calling for Geno Smith to sit and Michael Vick to take over. After just three games.
The New York Jets would be foolish to consider benching Geno Smith in favor of Michael Vick.
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.
The New York Jets are going to have their hands full with a very talented Detroit Lions team. If Gang Green does not play their best game it will be a long day at MetLife Stadium.
Here they are, due to overwhelming demand.
Smith had a rough night Monday in a 27-19 loss to the Chicago Bears, having one of his two interceptions returned for a touchdown and nearly having a few others picked off.
Monday night was a microcosm of what it means to be green. The game, like the Jets’ history, ended a few yards short of relevance.
“You take Wayne Chrebet’s heart out of him and put it into Keyshawn Johnson, you got Jerry Rice. That’s basically what you have.”
General manager John Idzik made some upgrades this past offseason, but if you think the Jets are truly built to win now I have a bridge to sell you.
“I have two words: Michael Vick. That’s all I’m gonna say. It’s time for him to start … I’ve had enough of Geno (Smith) already.”
A fan favorite, Chrebet played with Gang Green until 2005 and finished second in franchise history with 580 receptions.
I don’t want to read more about how this was meant to be a rebuilding year, a developmental season for Geno Smith, yada, yada, yada. Been there. Too many times to count.
The Jets were upset with their weak work in scoring range — and with what they claimed was a lack of execution by the officials on a critical second-quarter play Monday night.
