Removing Stephen Hill From The Starting Lineup Is Smart, But Does Not Make Him a Jets Draft Bust

Alfonzo Dennard, Stephen Hill

According to Brian Costello of the New York Post, Rex Ryan is considering taking wide receiver, Stephen Hill, out of the starting lineup when the Jets go to Baltimore to take on the Ravens, Sunday.

While it would represent a step down for the 2nd-year receiver out of Georgia Tech, it is the right move.  When dealing with the project, it is important to evaluate the best use and strategy with them.  Hill, who many projected would take a long time to adjust to NFL norms, is indeed struggling, but taking him out of the lineup can be a good thing for someone who still has a lot of time before being called a “bust”.

The Time Is Now For the Jets To Extend Rex Ryan’s Contract

rex_ryan_jets_saints_nfl_1

The New York Jets enter the Bye Week at 5-4, a record inconceivable to even the most optimistic of fans before this season.  The season has been up and down, something that could be predicted with an inconsistent rookie quarterback, but they have several wins over preseason Super Bowl favorites, such as the Falcons, Patriots, and Saints.

And while we too cannot predict how this consistently random season of win-loss-win-loss-win-loss-win-loss-win will go, we should all know one thing: It’s time to make it official and lock up Rex Ryan long term. Continue reading

The New York Jets travel to Cincinnati Sunday to take on the 5-2 Bengals.

It will be a tough task as the Bengals’ record stands at 5-2, leading the AFC North, and they are currently undefeated at home.

But on the Jets side, the focus will be on their team, and the struggle to become consistent behind a rookie quarterback. Continue reading

The Jets, The Patriots, The Tuck Rule, The Push Rule, Spygate, and NFL Rule Awareness

ny-post-ny-dailynews-jets-push-rule-tuck

I don’t know if you know this, but the Jets and Patriots had a little game of football yesterday.

The Jets won. They controlled the ball for most of the game (46:13 to 23:40). They won the quarterback battle (2 touchdowns to 0 [Tom Brady had ZERO TDs]). They won the 3rd down efficiency battle (11-21 to 1-12).  They outgunned the Patriots in yards (383 to 295).  They even overcame their weakness for penalty yards (45 to 100).

Of course, the post game storyline has nothing to do with what some might call the dominance of the Jets; or even the possible downfall of the suddenly struggling Patriots.

No, it is a penalty in overtime, which is being played as the only reason the Patriots lost Sunday. Continue reading

Geno Smith Might Be Improving, But His Jets Supporting Cast Definitely Has Already

geno-smith-jets-touchdown-bills

Geno Smith had a rebound game against the Bills in Week 3, passing for 331 yards on 55.2% throwing, with three total touchdowns and two interceptions.

It is a marked improvement over Geno Smith’s three interception 4th quarter against the Patriots the previous week, but we will have to see more to know if that is improvement, or the difference between playing home or away.

What we do know?  The pieces around Geno Smith have improved drastically. Continue reading
