    If I played on the Jacksonville defense that spread would be posted in HUGE poster board format in the locker room.  I'd blast him real hard in the 1st quarter if I was a Jacksonville pass rusher (even if it was a bit late and drew a 15 yarder) just because.   Interesting fact I heard today....only 2 Superbowl teams in the last 40+ years has ever given up more than 45 points to an opponent during regular season.  Defense wins championships.  Kansas City might just be Manning's kryptonite this year

    Thanks for the advise guys!....thats kinda what I was thinking too....Hill is the bigger play guy.  Just hoping he has no lingering effects from concusion.  But down so much I feel he is the bigger upside guy....i feel there is an outside shot since its very likely we will be playing catch up.  Thanks for the advise though...much appreciated =)

    So Where Is Our Pass Rusher???
                With the pick of Sheldon Richardson its fairly obvious the Jets will be using multiple fronts (writing is on the wall for 4-3 front on obvious passing downs with the Richardson pick) Richardson can get to the QB from inside, Wilkerson has emerged and Coples shows promise......but who is our assasin? The 4th pass rushing guy in that front.  None of these guys are pure pass rushers.  There are no Dion Jordan, Jarvis Jones types left (especially come Saturday assuming we go offense with 2nd and 3rd round picks) so If we get through tonight without drafting a pass rusher then what?  Well maybe there is a solution.
     
                Read about who Rex's friend and former assistant coach (and former NFL All Pro) Chuck Smith called this guy the best pure pass rusher and biggest steal in the draft earlier this year.  And check out Smith's recent twitter comments (posted below) as well as his comments from recent NY Times Article about 2013 draft prospect and pass rush specialist Mike Catapano.  (article link at bottom of this post).   They sound pretty compelling coming from a guy who trained all pros like Osi Umenyuora and others and was an all pro himself. 
     
                 We need offense next few picks but after that on Saturday, why the hell not??  This kid falls into 5th or lower we should grab him and give him a shot before somebody else does.  He was reported as being "unblockable" at East West Shrine Practice winning all his 1 on 1 drills and averaged 1.2 sacks a game in 2012.  His pro day video is insane and is a physical freak @ 272 lbs with 7% bodyfat.  Sick production on field, high motor and strong leadership ability.  He is a small school guy, but in the 5th round who cares?  This kid would be a 1st round pick if he went to Florida or Bama.  Read the NY Times article.  Its a good read and I love the local kid, lifelong Jets fan angle.  At least he knows our pain :-/

    Best kept pass rush draft secret!

    Read up on this kid because if we go offense tonight he might be our new pass rushing specialist come Saturday.
     
    an excerpt from this month's NY Times Article: 
     
    Catapano spent three weeks last spring, working for hours each day on footwork and speed, diet and agility, ankle flexibility and hand movements with Chuck Smith, a former N.F.L. defensive end. He ate with Smith at his home, watched film with him, "went into the bunker," as Smith put it.
     
    "My goal is to train this new generation of pass rushers," Smith said. "They don't want bull rushers.  It's more important for guys to get there faster than ever. If Mike Catapano is in there on third down, over the biggest guy in the league, I promise he will destroy that guy. He's a special guy because of his effort."
     
    High praise coming from a guy who trains all pros and was an all pro himself.  Yesterday's pick tells me Catapano is now a possibility.  Plus hes a local kid who grew up a loyal Jets fan.

  7. Jets2013 added a post in a topic 4-3 base   

    I think we need more pressure on the QB, so a 4-3 front on obvious passing downs isnt a bad thing...Richardson can get to the QB front inside with his athleticism.  what will picks be today?  I'm saying TE and OL...still need Safety, RB and QB but I think TE and OL are most pressing issues.  Opinions?

    Potential Jet Draftee DE/OLB Mike Catapano Getting Full Page Article In Tomorrow's NY Times
    Stock rising for Mike Catapano?  I'd say so.   As I read a tweet this afternoon saying the Jets have strong interest in Mike Catapano after yesterday's workout I saw a link to tomorrow's full page NY Times article!  Jets reportedly looking at Catapano as a pass rushing OLB.  Catapano flies to Rex's brother Rob in New Orleans for Saints visit Monday.  Check out the article.  Here is a quote from the NY Times article from his off season trainer NFL All Pro Chuck Smith who used to coach for Rex.
     
     
    “My goal is to train this new generation of pass rushers,” Smith said. “They don’t want bull rushers. It’s more important for guys to get there faster than ever. If Mike Catapano is in there on third down, over the biggest guy in the league, I promise he will destroy that guy. He’s a special guy because of his effort.”

    okay.....true.  An athlete who if was given a shot may have saved us the humiliation of the butt fumble and gotten us more than 6 wins.  Something to be said for great athletes.  Just saying

    He is an insane athlete, this much is for certain!  Over a sack a game is impressive on any level.  Jarad Allen had similar numbers in his senior college season and slipped to the end of the 4th round.  Small School guys just dont get drafted high...too much risk due to lack of game film against top tier competition.  If Catapano was SEC and had similar #s he is top 15 pick.  No GM will risk their job taking him very high in case he doesnt work out, but as a day 3 sleeper this kid is a no brainer.  Just not sure about in a 3-4 D

    I agree that he is a better fit for the Giants 100%.  Giants could use a back up/replacement for an aging Tuck who  isn't what he once was.   I posed the question because it is very interesting that many 3-4 teams are looking at him as an OLB.   Saints, Eagles and Packers are all 3-4.  Better than standing up Coples.  Who knows what Rex has in mind.  He is a master of disguises and his brother's team gave Catapano an official invite, he isnt local there.  But seems more like a 4-3 DE to me.  And I also agree he goes on day 3.  UDFA?   nah, no way.  Even NFLDraftScout who had him at 28th the last few months now bumped him up to #17.  Too much upside to not take a chance on him on day 3
