Some people may subscribe to the following theory about pre-season football: “It’s three hours of my life that I’ll never get back!” In a lot of ways, that’s true — though there was a lot to take out of Jets vs. Texans.
New York Jets coach Rex Ryan has selected Matt Slauson as the team’s starting left guard over second-round draft pick Vladimir Ducasse.
The Jets close out their preseason schedule on Thursday night against the Eagles in Philadelphia. Gang Green will only have 36 players in uniform, as most of the starters will have the night off.
“There’s no place like home!” It’s been a while since the Jets enjoyed the same experience as Dorothy clicking her heels to return to Kansas in “The Wizard Of Oz”.
They’re two big men from different parts of the world who have little in common, including their paths to the NFL. Even communicating can be a challenge because the American Slauson speaks with a stutter and English isn’t the first language of Ducasse, who is from Haiti.
