  4. NJ.com has been on top of everything as of late, and were able to catch-up with Vick for a couple interesting statements. “Geno’s the starting quarterback for that football team,” Vick said in a brief interview this afternoon during a family fitness event at Knight’s Personal Fitness in this city’s Kensington neighborhood. “Ultimately our goal is to try to help Geno become the best quarterback that he can be. Myself and [third-stringer Matt Simms] are all trying to put him in a position where he can get better from year one to year two.” The veteran quarterback did go on to say that he’s “still a starter” and not a backup QB. It’s becoming more and more evident that the Jets are letting second round selection, QB Geno Smith, hold onto the keys to the franchise—for now. Given the right tools, we’re not ready to move on, either. Make sure to read the full article: Let there be no doubt: Michael Vick says Geno Smith is Jets’ starting QB

  6. RUMORS: DRAFT DAY TRADE FOR NOTABLE CORNERBACK? Posted by Brian Johnson on May 2, 2014 16:48
  7. Mike Vick ✔ @MikeVick Follow After trying on the #8 I decided that it's not the right fit for me. I'll be going with the #1 officially. Thank You #JetsNation
  8. Former New York Jets defensive lineman Joe Klecko, a member of the famed New York Sack Exchange, sacked two of the team's current pass rushers -- Muhammad Wilkerson and Quinton Coples -- in an interview Friday with a local radio station. Klecko, a guest on WFAN, suggested Wilkerson and Coples don't give maximum effort on every play. "A little bit of the time, he looks like Tarzan, plays like Jane,” Klecko said of Coples. "Sometimes he gets out there and does things that are unbelievable. Well, you need to go out there and stick your nose in there every time and make sure everybody knows you're there. I think he has a lot to learn." Coples, picked 16th overall in 2012, came into the league amid question about his practice habits and work ethic. The 6-6, 290-pound defensive end-turned-linebacker has registered only 10 sacks in two seasons. He managed just 4.5 sacks last season, but he missed the first two games (surgery to repair a fractured ankle) and made the switch to a new position, outside linebacker. “I don’t know him at all, but understanding attitude and body language, he sometimes comes out there, I think, and thinks, ‘Don’t you know who I am? I’m here,'" Klecko said. "He has to start proving that he is something to be reckoned with “You have to have defensive players on the team that do that kind of play – go for the jugular vein, all out, all the time. And then everyone starts to listen you. If you have just a group of lukewarm guys, you’re going to have lukewarm players that will need to have to be picked up by their leaders." Wilkerson, who recorded a career-high 10 sacks last season, is generally regarded as the best defensive player on the team. Klecko spoke glowingly of the former first-round pick's talent, but questioned his motor. "I think there's a few too many plays he gives up on a little bit," Klecko said. "You know, he's big enough to hunt bear with a switch, there's no doubt. He's an unbelievable talent, but he has to put it out there every single play. Now, sure, everybody is going to say, 'Yeah, he does.' No, he doesn't, I'm telling you right now. He needs to put it out there every single play. Now, (Sheldon) Richardson does that." Richardson was named NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year. "I think Richardson plays with a chip on his shoulder every single play, which I like," Klecko said. "Kind of reminds me of me." Klecko, a member of the Jets' Ring of Honor, made four Pro Bowls in the 1980s. He's the only player in history to make a Pro Bowl at three different defensive-line positions.
  9. So that make's him the #1 QB? What a douche.
  10. We’ve heard some buzz that the New York Jets may be looking to make a trade on draft day, to fill a big area of need. Cornerback is not as deep, this year, as another position of need—wide receiver—so perhaps finding an immediate contributor is the better route for 2014 success. According to one source, the Jets may be looking to swing a deal with the Dallas Cowboys for CB Morris Claiborne. Claiborne (LSU) was drafted by the Cowboys in 2012, just two seasons ago, after they traded up to the sixth overall pick, from 14th, to grab their man. They gave away their first and second round selections in an exchange with the Rams, who originally held the pick. Claiborne joined the team with outsider expectations very high—expecting immediate impact. He finished his rookie year with 55 tackles and one interception, though he played inconsistently. In 2013, the cornerback dislocated his shoulder in the Cowboys’ season opener and his play was subsequently affected (26 tackles, 1 INT). He has since undergone shoulder surgery and has rehabbed well. Last season, Idzik pulled the trigger on a trade for running back Chris Ivory, who, in spite of injuries, looks like a good value move for the fourth round selection that was exchanged with the Saints.
  11. So the way NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock sees it, the first-round decision for the New York Jets comes down to best available wide receiver vs. best available cornerback with the 18th pick. Mayock assessed the Jets' options Thursday on a conference call with reporters. First, some background. His cornerback rankings are different than most. His top corner is Kyle Fuller (Virginia Tech), followed by Darqueze Dennard (Michigan State), Justin Gilbert (Oklahoma State) and Bradley Roby (Ohio State). Mayock made an interesting observation, noting Gilbert and Roby are favored by personnel types because of their movement skills while Fuller and Dennard are liked among coaches because they're considered better players than athletes. "From a cornerback perspective, the Jets could get a Kyle Fuller, a Bradley Roby perhaps ... everybody has different flavors at corner," Mayock said, assuming Dennard and Gilbert will be gone. "It's those four cornerbacks they'd be looking at versus the highest-rated receiver on the board at the same time." Mayock hasn't revealed his official mock draft, but in a preliminary mock (do we call that a mock mock?), he has the Jets selecting wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (LSU). He believes six receivers will go in the first round, and he has them broken up into three tiers: Sammy Watkins (Clemson) and Mike Evans (Texas A&M), followed by Beckham and Brandin Cooks (Oregon State), followed by Marqise Lee (USC) and Kelvin Benjamin (Florida State).
  12. All I can say is Vernon Goldston!
