Re: Bubble players to watch Thursday 


Start a poll with the receivers...that'll be great....and if McIntyre isn't part of the final 46, I'll eat crow.

Being a Jets fan living in Indy, I want to see the Jets beat up on the Colts, preseason or not.

Rex doesn't anticipate playing Pryor tomorrow night even though he's been cleared. Wants to get him up to speed for Bengals game. # NYJ

Starters will play 1st Q and maybe into 2nd Q vs. Colts. # NYJ

Will Vick get a series with 1st team? "Probably so," says Rex. # NYJ

Rex "not real sure" if Powell or Patrick (hammys) will play. Says both have improved within the last 24 hours or so. # NYJ

I just want to see simple things.....how well the first string O-line protects the QB. Can the secondary cover? Do the receivers get separation?

Jaiquawn Jarrett Eager to Finally Play a Game

Posted 12 hours ago

Jackie LovettReporter

Jets' 4th-Year Safety Having a Strong Camp but Is Ready to Hit Some Colts on Thursday

Despite the protective shield that the defensive front seven is sure to provide for the secondary come gametime, there is no such protection guaranteed when it comes to job security for the stacked group of young safeties competing for a spot on the 53-man roster this year.

But as the position battle in training camp continues to heat up, so does veteran standout  Jaiquawn Jarrett .

Jarrett showcased his quickness and agility as the first defender to pick off long-time pro and former Eagles teammate  Michael Vick  at this camp. Jarrett’s performance has helped to earn him some recognition among a strong group of safeties in contention for roster spots.

“Jaiquawn has been outstanding at this camp and might be playing as well as anybody,” head coach Rex Ryan said recently, adding of his safeties: “It’s an outstanding group.”

The first depth chart of the season released by the Jets today lists Jarrett and first-round draft pick  Calvin Pryor as the second-teamers at the safety spots, with  Dawan Landry  and  Antonio Allen  listed as the first-teamers. With the competitive nature of the position at this point of the preseason, the safeties find themselves all seeking out “The Mentor” for guidance.

“We all look up to Dawan Landry,” said Jarrett. “We call him 'Mentor' or 'OG'. He’s been around, going on year nine. He has so much knowledge of the game as a pro so we just all tend to look up to him as a mentor, as an OG. We try to gain as much knowledge from him as possible."

The secondary's dynamic is "real interesting,” he said. "All the DBs are real cool. We like to joke a lot. We have a lot of fun in the DB room, both on the field and off the field.”

Aside from the short time he spent in Philadelphia with Vick, the third-year NFL veteran shares a connection with a few other former teammates from Temple,  Muhammad Wilkerson  and  Michael Campbell .

“It’s a brotherhood. We continue to stay close," he said. "Me and Mike are actually roommates in camp. And you know, playing with Mo has been great. He’s family. I’m always with Mo when we’re off the field. It’s always fun to go out here and watch them perform.”

Jarrett started two of the 16 games he played in last season, registering 598 plays on defense and special teams combined. He also got in on the action at the Green & White practice on Saturday, the closest the team has come to playing in an actual game. In 12 possessions of play, he helped the defense held the offense to two field goals and 149 receiving yards.

As a natural competitor, Jarrett believes he and the defense have room for improvement.

“I did OK,” he said of his performance at the Green & White. “I got in on a few tackles, but as a whole, the secondary, we did a pretty good job of communicating. We were flying around, having fun and celebrating with each other when we made plays as a unit. So I think overall we did good, but we’ve got a long way to go.”

Jarrett is looking ahead to the hard hitting ahead at the Jets' first preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts at MetLife Stadium on Thursday.

“In a few days we will be able to go out there and hit the opponent," he said. "You can’t always be banging against your own offense, but you always look forward to being able to hit another opponent.

Re: Pre-Season Game Thread - Colts @ Jets - Aug 7 (7pm) 


I'm watching the game (and DVR'ing) off NFL Network Friday at 1PM.  I told my boss today, WVU alum, so Geno fan, that I'm working from home Friday so I can watch the game.  

Players I'll be all over -

Big Players:

Milliner - I want to see a #1 CB, even when he gets beats he better be right there like a #1 dog.

Coples - slimmed down Coples better look faster and more explosive.

Second tier players:

Davis - does he take the next step?  You keep hearing peeps of him taking the next step.  We'll see.

Fighting for a spot:

Miles - blew up the green & white game with passes defensed, a sack, and a batted down ball.  Supposedly lays the wood.  I can't wait to see it.

TJ Barnes - big 99 6'7 365 athletic beast.  Could be long term partner with Snacks.  I think this is Ellis' last year as a Jet (unrestricted this spring).  I hope Barnes makes a case for 3 NT roster spots.

Rookies:  all of them!  Saunders returning punts should be awesome.  McDougle is going to be real interesting.  #43 on the outside I hope reminds me of #24 Mickens.  I am hoping McDougle flashes that slot cover skills and has the ability to go outside.  And all eyes are on #88. 

Every jet fan will be watching #88.  If he looks like a star, nobody will care what they've read.  This draft will be considered a hit if our #88 looks like #82 on the Cowboys.  We need our redzone target and first down machine.  I don't care what unit he plays on, a good showing would boost morale.

Players ill be watching will include:

Milliner- Can he really step up and be that No. 1 corner we need?

Amaro: Has he grasped the playbook and made strides to help the O?

CJ2K: How is he looking coming off the surgery

and of course Geno.

Geno !!!  He is the biggest key to us being either 6-10 or 10-6.  I really would like to be reading about the wonderful drive he orchestrated instead of it's only pre-season.

The pass rush and especially Coples. We need him to take the next step to be a dominating defense.

Re: Pre-Season Game Thread - Colts @ Jets - Aug 7 (7pm) 


I have a commitment so I will not see it... BUT I would like to hear about Hill and if he pulls his disappearing act or continues to show progress and of course GENO  (is his footwork and decision making better?, did he read the D?, Can he do more then one progression reads and not lock onto primary rev?, etc.) Want to hear that the O function alike a real NFL O should... efficiently and effectively.  What to hear that the CBs played well and didn't give up long plays and most of all we stop them on 3rd down....

looking forward to you guys provide some good insights... Thanks gents

Read that Miles is a sound tackler who can lay the wood, but he's been struggling a little bit in coverage. He's gonna have his work cut out to make this team. You've got Landry, Allen, and Pryor as locks. And then Jarrett and Bush are both having decent camps too, according to the beat guys.

I think Miles and TJ Barnes are in similar positions.  Miles is stuck behind Landry and Barnes is stuck behind Ellis, and Landry and Ellis are both likely on their last legs as Jets.  Landry is likely in his last year in the NFL.  Ellis is a free agent that can likely compete to start someplace else.  I feel Miles could be a lot of teams #3 safety, and maybe our long term #3 S, so you have to think hard about keeping 5 safeties if you think he's a long term answer.

Now, TJ Barnes I think is in a really tough spot.  Can we keep 3 NTs on the roster?  TJ Barnes if cut could sign to a team and compete to start the moment he signs.  He could be a long term cheaper back up to snacks that rotates in nicely when Ellis leaves.  I'd have a hard time cutting him too.

It's funny, I don't know how we can cut Miles or Barnes, but I don't know how we can afford to keep both based on roster #s

5 story lines for Colts preseason opener Thursday Mike Chappell, mike.chappell@indystar.com 1:51 p.m. EDT August 6, 2014

The Dean, Mike Chappell, provides five story lines for Thursday's Colts-New York Jets preseason game at MetLife Stadium:

And a warning in advance, don't expect to see much of the Colts' starters.

O-LINE, OF COURSE

This is a drum we'll keep pounding until the group convinces us otherwise. How is the interior of Andrew Luck's offensive line coming together? We should get a strong indication in the preseason opener.

Maybe the coaching and personnel staffs are able to glean meaningful analysis from what has been a relatively low-key training camp from a contact standpoint. The real test for rookie LG Jack Mewhort, C Khaled Holmes and RG Hugh Thornton comes against the Jets. Whatever their shortcomings, the Jets' defensive front isn't among them. DE Muhammad Wilkerson, NT Damon Harrison and DT Sheldon Richardson are 959 pounds of bad intention. Holmes should have his hands full with the 350-pound Harrison.

If the Luck-led offense is to reach its potential, the offensive line — most notably the vastly inexperienced interior — must hold up. That's been a glaring weakness the past two seasons.

BETTER T-RICH?

It doesn't take a football savant to realize we're seeing a different Trent Richardson during camp. He's running with confidence, decisiveness. He's hitting the holes and showing a burst. But, again, Richardson has been working against a defense that has offered only marginal resistance.

The Jets won't be as accommodating. A year ago their run defense ranked No. 3 in yards per game allowed (88.3) and No. 1 in yards per attempt (3.35). Richardson's workload likely mirrors that of Luck and other selected front-line players — perhaps 10-12 plays, just enough to get a taste.

We won't be as concerned with Richardson's limited stats as we will be with how they were achieved. Run hard, run with conviction, then sit down.

SECONDARY CONCERNS

Safety LaRon Landry and CB Vontae Davis finally joined full-team work this week after dealing with groin injuries since mid-June. Considering the cautious approach the Colts have taken with injuries, it's entirely possible each is held out against the Jets.

The corners have performed well while Davis has healed, but uncertainty remains at safety. Who starts alongside Landry for the Sept. 7 season-opener at Denver? Delano Howell? Mike Adams? Sergio Brown? Starting with the Jets, that group needs to sort itself out.

LUCK'S TARGETS

We know Reggie Wayne won't play. T.Y. Hilton and Hakeem Nicks will play sparingly, if at all. That translates into invaluable game reps for what appears to be a very deep receiver corps.

Griff Whalen has been his reliable self during camp and third-round draft pick Donte Moncrief occasionally has flashed his big-play skills. One of the camp disappointments thus far has been Da'Rick Rogers, who must begin to assert himself if he's going to make the cut to 53.

Preseason games always are a mishmash when it comes to offensive continuity due to liberal substitutions, but they offer young receivers the opportunity to literally catch a coach's eye. This is when the pecking order behind Wayne, Hilton and Nicks crystalizes and players such as rookies Tony Washington and Ryan Lankford can prove they belong.

ADONGO: READY OR NOT?

This doesn't rise to the level of the offensive line or other preseason issues, but everyone is intrigued to get a true glimpse of Daniel Adongo's learning arc. The former rugby standout remains a project after appearing in just two games a year ago, and then only on special teams.

Adongo has beefed up to about 270 pounds and is working at rush linebacker. He simply needs to get on the field with the defense and experience things at full speed rather than in the controlled environment of practice.

Another player we'd like to see? Rookie TE Erik Swoope. The former University of Miami power forward has had his moments during camp. The next step is a game, and proving he can handle in-line blocking as well as catching passes.
