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”.

Deadspin had an interesting article the other day on the history of injuries for players that were on the field as Jake Locker went down during the Jets-Titans Week 4 matchup.
Hidden neatly underneath the information was a nugget on Calvin Pace…
He once fell through a window??? Continue reading
Sequels are rarely better than the original. Geno Smith made sure the Jets had a chance to find that out today against the Tennessee Titans, when he tried to do Mark Sanchez one better on last year’s worst play, the Butt Fumble. Continue reading
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
The Jets enter the 2013 in a weird place. It is both a known rebuilding year and a make or break year for head coach Rex Ryan.
A weird premise for a new general manager to enter the picture, start a rebuild of a team, and keep the previous regime’s coach, but that was the decision Woody Johnson and his new GM made. So Ryan enters this year as a lame duck coach, with no clear-cut way of knowing what standard he has to set to keep his job.
As for what we do know – lets take a short look at the personnel before this season begins and then take a guess at how this season will go. Continue reading
Jets fans and the media have come to a disagreement over the past few weeks. While most of the talk within Jets nation had been Sanchez, Tebow, McElroy, or Bust for most of the time, one thing that has brought together both sides is their dissatisfaction with the people who present Jets news to them.
The major cog in this development has been New York Daily News writer, Manish Mehta. His calling card over the past two seasons has been an anonymous source within the Jets organization that has leaked him major news of distrust and disorganization.
We are essentially a week from marking a new era in Jets history. Whether or not Greg McElroy gets the ball for Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, we have probably seen the end of Mark Sanchez as “The Sanchize”. Mark Sanchez’s ineffectiveness for most of the 2012 season has sealed his fate as it exists.
The major question at this point is, who will Rex Ryan choose? Continue reading
In consecutive weeks, the Jets have lost their two biggest playmakers: Darrelle Revis and Santonio Holmes.
While the NFL has proven that you can rally from a star player becoming injured, a second star going down on such a flawed team leads most to believe that this will not be happening for the Jets.
If we can all agree that the Jets will not be winning the Super Bowl this year, the best course of action for the Jets is to lose out and get as best of a draft pick as possible in the 2013 draft (hopefully with someone other than Tannenbaum making that pick). With that said, if the Jets are going to win more games this year, here are some Tebow-less ways they will have to adjust to make it possible.
