I agree. Even though he acts like a knucklehead off the field, Sheldon Richardson is the teams best DL. Wilkerson should be tagged and traded next year if possible. I am not getting too down about this loss since the Jets were missing their most consistent WR, starting RB and arguably their best bass rusher. Normally it's next man up - but it's not fair to expect the coaching staff to have that mentality with only one offseason to develop the roster.
Gary Myers is a joke. Can't believe he wrote in a book how the Jets missed out on Brady and Manning. Brady was a 6th rounder. 31 other teams missed out on him and I am sure multiple teams talked about drafting him in rounds 5 and 6. As far as Manning goes, who cares? It's not like he came out in the draft and we passed over him. He didn't even declare. Myers is really the ultimate troll and anyone who buys his book is a moron.
Was listening to a Bruce Ariens interview on XM last night. Basically he went through the difficulty in his own teams players coming off injury and getting their play time back. Ariens runs a demanding camp and practice making it difficult for a player to come off injury and play at the same speed as guys who have been healthy. In Ariens system even backups get reps during practice so everyone on the team is in top physical condition and the timing is there even with the back ups. If Bowles runs the same type of practice and camp, I can see why he favors guys that have been out there over guys coming off injury,
Great point. I personally think Bowles quiet style has the media overlooking the roster and team. Bowles is probably watching film most nights instead of talking to Manish. On paper, literally the only position the Colts are better in is QB and our DL should be able to get pressure on him.
Side note: I can't wait for Sheldon to join this group on defense.
I agree. This game is pretty big considering the results around the league today. Otoh the Jets dont lose much ground if they lose to a Colts team on MNF in their home opener. On paper though the Jets should win this game.
This has never happened before. I'm gonna go with my gut and say Geno wasn't innocently standing by his locker when he got punched out of nowhere. Bowles even said the were BOTH arguing. Leaders dont get dragged into stuff like that.
