Appreciate the reach out. I personally haven't posted on the blog for a while because the Jets have made me sick this year. But I feel like many Jet fans have become frustrated with the beat writers like Manish and Cimini is because their writing seems to have an agenda. A sarcastic tone that seems to say "I told you so." It's frustrating and hard to read.
I think generally we all want stories that are unbiased accounts of practices and games and features on the players and the front office so we all know more about them. I don't mind you bashing the Jets either, because they definitely deserve it at times, but all I ask is make a well formatted argument that provides solid points/examples.
There are so many people from outside the New York area that now live in New York it allows a lot of fans, seemingly more and more, to come to Jets games and impact the crowd. Seattle doesn't have that sort of problem because who moves to Seattle except for people that are from there?
Completely agree, Wilson is horrible. In fact why was that Adams guy in the slot on the second touchdown to Bennett instead of Wilson. Where was he? Was he benched for a guy who clearly didn't know the defense? Wilson has been horrible his whole career. In the preseason he on 9 passing attempts against he allowed 8 catches for 140+ yards and a TD. I think in his career he has about 13 pass break ups. Allen has had 6 on the season I believe. If he was any good, then Rex would have moved him to the outside.
Allen has been solid. He's not shutdown and will let up some catches, but not long TDs. Even the long pass that he let up to Jeffrey last night was really just a perfect throw and catch down the sideline. Same with Walls, his coverage is solid but not spectacular. He had two break ups last night too. They've been fine, not the reason we lose. Milliner might have been the reason we lost against the Packers though and Wilson would not be an improvement from either one of them.
I agree Allen will be a good safety. It has been Pryor that has disappointed for me so far. He's seemd to take bad angles and hasn't really made much of an impact. He flashes the occassional tackle, but other than that I think he's been hestitant. I think he'll still be good, but he's not going to be DROY.
Honestly, I've been satisfied with the play of Walls and Allen. Their coverage has been relatively good, as compared to when Milliner came in and was getting burnt left and right. When you compare it to last year I think Walls and Allen are doing a better job than Cromartie and Milliner did last year. They are staying with their WRs, even getting a few break ups, where as last year Cro and Milliner were getting run by with ease. I think last night both Walls and Allen had two legitimate pass break ups. Do I trust them in an all out blitz? No not really, but I also don't think they are getting burned for an 80 yard td like Milliner did last week. And really the only long pass Allen gave up last night was the dime of a throw by Cutler to Jeffrey. So I'm not in the group that thinks they have sucked. They have been pretty good considering the situation.
Not really, the Bengals are going to run away with that division. I think both the Steelers and Ravens are between 6-10 and 8-8 teams. Really not a lot of talent on either team to me. Although Leveon Bell looks real good.
To me this game is similar to the Falcons game from last year. We're going into a hostile environment against a team that we're "not supposed to beat" that really needs the win. Last year the Falcons game was our best game, hoping that we can pull the game out like that one. And I see a lot of parallels between the Falcons and the Packers. Good QB (obviously Rodgers is at a different level than Ryan) very good skill players but weak offensive and defensive lines. I like how we matchup and hope we can take advantage.
