@eallenjets What's your thoughts on the CB position?— Christa ✌ (@Chriistaxx3) August 25, 2014
EA: There is cause for concern. Jets No. 1 cornerback
And in a Jets Flight Plan segment that will air Saturday night on CBS-2HD here in New York, Sirius XM analyst/former Jets executive Pat Kirwan told me that he anticipates the Jets will use a lot of ‘big nickel’ looks with three safeties. Let’s see how this unfolds next week with the Patterson situation and as cut-downs continue throughout the National Football League.
@eallenjets Will the jets keep 3 tight ends, Zach is playing really well— Jose Barbosa (@jlb1222) August 26, 2014
EA: It would be a shocker if Sudfeld was not on the final roster. The Jets have good depth at the position with the speedy
@eallenjets can the Jets take the AFC EAST? Who/what will be the biggest X-Factor of the teams success?— Coach Ju (@Optimus_Slime) August 26, 2014
EA: Yes. But the Patriots are prohibitive favorites and they should be. That Pats offense will remain explosive, but the secondary — an Achilles heel in the past — should be vastly improved with not only Darrelle Revis but Brandon Browner as well. The Jets split with the Pats last season and a similar result would be good. For the Jets to have a chance to contend for the division, they probably would have to win 12 games and that would be quite a jump from 8-8. X-factor is defined as a variable in a given situation that could have the most significant impact on the outcome, so to me for the Jets that is Geno Smith.
@eallenjets Any chance on Jets getting Quinton jammer or asante samuel?— Adam Bayford (@The_Bayf) August 26, 2014
EA: If John Idzik thinks he can upgrade his roster with a move, he will do just that. But Idzik won’t be pressured into making a decision and he is going to operate at his pace. Many of us fall victim to ‘big name’ association — we are familiar with a player, so we want our team to sign that cat immediately. Thomas missed both the 2011 and ’12 seasons and was said to have struggled in the slot with the Seahawks this summer. Quinton Jammer is not only 35, but he wasn’t at a camp after playing a reserve role with the Broncos in 2013. The 33-year-old Samuel has always been considered a better fit for teams that favor more zone coverage in the back end. Could the Jets have interest in one of these players? Perhaps, but expect Idzik to keep his plans to himself and remember the market is going to be flooded with players over the next week.
EA: The Jets have three excellent backs and they will use them all. Chris Johnson had a tremendous summer and he is a threat to go the distance at all times, but
@eallenjets Reggie bush or bishop Sankey in ppr?— Chris Shamy (@chris_shamy) August 24, 2014
EA: Pass on this idea for a multitude of reasons. You just can’t make a dramatic position switch like that late in the summer.
EA: Kind of think we are in fantasy land here. The Jets are in a good situation in quarterback (
