Corner Blitz!

April 22, 2010

 

Another weapon for the NFL's best defense

With the 29th overall pick, the New York Jets selected Boise State corner Kyle Wilson.  The Piscataway native is pegged as an aggressive cornerback with superior ball skills and was rated a top 15 player on most draft boards.  As Rex Ryan’s former boss Ozzie Newsome put it, “Rex can never have enough corners.”

Two sides to a coin

April 13, 2010

Are Tannenbaum and Woody dealing with the Devil?

Mike Tannenbaum’s acquisition of Santonio Holmes was just another piece towards bringing a Superbowl to Jets fans.  It began with the hiring of Rex Ryan, and over the last 12 months has included the drafting of Mark Sanchez, trades for Braylon Edwards and Antonio Cromartie, the swapping of LT for TJ and Brodney Poole for Kerry Rhodes, and the soon-to-be signing of Jason Taylor.  Mike Tannenbaum and Woody Johnson are stopping at nothing in ensuring the Jets have one of the elite teams on paper entering the 2010 season. 

All these bold moves, however, could come with a hefty price to pay.   Read the rest of this entry ?

Sleeping with the enemy

Jason Taylor could be a Jet

Free-agent Jason Taylor met with the Jets brass at Gang Green’s Florham Park facilities on Wednesday.  With Jay Feely leaving for the desert, the Jets have room to sign a free-agent, granted the contract is not worth more than $1.5 million a year.  

Gary Wichard, Taylor’s agent, stated that Rex Ryan called him last weekend and said Taylor was his No. 1 target in free agency.  The Jets need an outside pass rusher, and all indications point to Vernon Gholston being a complete bust.  Wichard further stated that Jason was very flattered by the respect the Jets showed and that he desperately wants to win a Superbowl and views the Jets as a contender.  Read the rest of this entry ?

Giants signed Antrel Rolle; Cardinals swooped Rhodes from Jets

The New York football Giants matched the Jets acquisition of Antonio Cromartie with the signing of Antrel Rolle to recapture the football headlines this weekend in New York.  The deal with the former Arizona Cardinal safety was the first step in revamping what was one of the NFL’s worst defenses in 2009.   Read the rest of this entry ?

The Jets acquire Antonio Cromartie

March 4, 2010

Mike Tannenbaum has worked his magic yet again. 

The New York Jets, according to various sources, traded their 2011 third-round pick to the San Diego Chargers for cornerback Antonio Cromartie late Thursday night.  The pick can become a second rounder based on Cromartie’s playing time and performance with Gang Green. 

Did the NFL’s best defense just get better?  Or are we looking at Lito Shepphard 2.0? Read the rest of this entry ?

Proud of the Jets

January 25, 2010

For a franchise that hasn’t been to a Superbowl in over 40 years, it is not easy to just say “we’ll get ’em next year.”   Yes, nobody expected Gang Green to be in this position, but these opportunities do not come every season (just ask Dan Marino.) 

Nonetheless, except for a Superbowl victory, I cannot be happier with the Jets and what they accomplished this season.
