So Mike Tannenbaum is gone as the Jets' general manager.(3)
Ripping on the Jets, like talking about Tim Tebow, is passé.
Landry didn’t get the kill-shot he’s always looking for, but still, there’s something different about the way players go down when he tackles them. They crumble abruptly like dead guys in an ‘80s video game.
The high point of the Jets' dismal 17-12 loss to the Carolina Panthers last night came halfway through the fourth quarter, courtesy of Tim Tebow.
Hill ran a blazing 4.31 at the combine, and put up eye-popping numbers in the broad jump and vertical jump.
Hill’s status as the Official Wide Receiver Freak of the 2012 Draft translates to the field in one important way: He’s is a lethal deep threat, who averaged an astonishing 30 yards per catch his senior year. This is why the Jets packaged a fifth and a seventh-rounder to move up four spots to pick him.(1)
It’s a sentiment you hear every year: The Jets need a dominant pass rusher off the edge.
The hand-wringing about the Jets' pass rush is a bit overstated but generally valid: They ranked 13th in sack percentage in 2011, 8th in 2010, and 15th in 2009. They have done so despite a scheme that has traditionally been blitz-heavy, although, as ESPN repeatedly flashed during its draft coverage last night, the Jets ranked just 12th in blitz percentage last year, down from 3rd and 1st the previous two years.
