I would also disagree on that. But what I do feel about this whole thing is that it's way too soon to speculate on how the season will look like/end. The sample size is too small to draw any real conclusions other than we have a great chance of winning against Philly on Sunday. Other than that I feel a bit irritation towards the talking heads who doesn't give us credit for our beautiful W:s thus far. Slats made a comment that they are a good counterweight to all the pink cloud comments around here. I agree on that as well.
So I see that the general conclusion here is that we will trade him. I have to say I agree after reading Gaileys thoughts about him below. Only reason for keeping him is depth as I see it.
1. What's up with Jeremy Kerley? Gailey basically said Kerley isn't versatile enough for what the Jets want to do with their offense. "We've got some roles defined, and he fits a little bit of a lot of roles, but not major in any of the roles," Gailey said. Gailey also said because Kerley had missed time—first with an Achilles injury during OTAs, then with a concussion during training camp, "we started molding [the offense] around other things, and we are where we are." The Jets want their receivers to be able to play interchangeable roles. Kerley, while capable, is pretty much a slot receiver. He playedjust one offensive snap against the Browns. "He's still going to have bits and pieces of things that we think that he would make a difference for us on, but there's not enough room for everybody on every play," Gailey said. "Unfortunately, with the time he missed, he's a little bit—this is a bad term—you don't want to say odd man out, but it's just we haven't created the role for him yet that he will end up playing at some point for us. We will, we know where it is, we'll get there, but these other things are things that we've been doing for quite a while, while he was out." Translation: Kerley's future with the Jets is very much in doubt. 2. On Devin Smith's role, if he does play vs. Colts. Gailey said Smith, who's been sidelined since July 31 with broken ribs, would play "a very limited role" if he can go Monday night. Smith has practiced in full the last two weeks, but he was inactive last week against the Browns. "He's really in fall camp still," Gailey said. "You can watch film and do it on the chalkboard all you want, but until you get out there and you do it on the field, there's no substitute for that." PLUS: How being a former player influences Todd Bowles as a coach 3. Where will Devin Smith play (if he plays)? As noted above, Gailey and receiver coach Karl Dorrell want all of the Jets wideouts to be able to play in all spots. But with all the time Smith has missed, Gailey said he'd prefer to put Smith "in a spot—I won't tell you which one—and try to leave him there in order to keep it as simple as possible for him early in the year."
Tell me about it. Getting single at 37 without beard and the result of years in the gym is not pleasant. In my city, every mother****er looks like a ******* gym rat with beard and tatoos. My life sucks. Oh, and I'm a Jets fan..
OK something's officially wrong here. The O is moving the ball on a regular basis! I feel like a million bucks right now. And for those who argues about the fourth game etc, I don't care. Cannot remember them playing this well on O ever.
I hope you're wrong. Owusu is a interesting prospect and did some nice things end of last year, both catching and as a kick returner (Miami?!). But with his history of concussion, KR is probably not the best idea..
Sorry with the late reply. You know time difference and the only day with good weather during my vacation (so far) held me off this board for the day. I hope you feel satisfied with the updated info that came out after i replied to you, changed plans. To be clear, NO scrimmage on Saturday
