New York Jets
While many of the fans continue to freak out over the Jets’ well-documented problems at cornerback, head coach Rex Ryan tried something different at practice on Monday.
The linebacker has a gaze that’s deadly serious — whether he’s talking about football or life. He speaks with a purpose while looking straight at you, the dark brown around his pupils both piercing and intimidating.
“I think they liked Farmingdale very much,” school administrator Patrick Calabria said. “What’s not to like? We have a beautiful campus.”
Another sprain or pop could ruin the fate of the secondary in what long ago became a pass-first league. If that happens, 2014 might turn into a long, long season.
The Jets are banged up in a big way at cornerback. “Those things happen and it’s unfortunate, but you’ve got to move on,” head coach Rex Ryan said.
Milliner, expected to be the Jets’ top cornerback in his second season, went down after defending wide receiver Quincy Enunwa on a long pass and writhed in pain on the sideline at SUNY Cortland on Sunday.
Geno Smith: three points. Michael Vick: seven. Quarterback controversy for the New York Jets? Nope. Not even close. OK, well, not yet.
Geno Smith hasn’t officially been named the Jets’ starting quarterback for Week 1, although we all know it’s his job to lose. Nothing changed on Thursday night.
Geno Smith was solid. Michael Vick showed he was still the fastest guy on the field. Both players led scoring drives. Overall it was a good — but not overwhelming — showing on Thursday night.
Please take a seat, Mr. Idzik. If your team doesn’t do well this year, it might start to get a little warm. Not hot, mind you. Just a little warm.
Preseason games don’t matter? Don’t tell that to Jets quarterback Geno Smith, because his career may depend on them.
Boomer warned Craigie, along with the legions of loyal Jets fans, to keep in mind that tonight’s game at MetLife is an exhibition contest, so don’t try to make too much of it.
Sure, Vick would like to be the New York Jets’ starting quarterback. But, from what he has seen, they’re already in pretty good hands with Smith.
“He’s going to do great,” Vick said on Tuesday in regard to Smith. “He’s going to be 10 times better than what he was last year, and I’m looking forward to it.”
“He missed a lot of work,” Rex Ryan said, adding that Pryor is physically ready to play. “We’ll get him back and get him up to speed for the next one.”
