OK, Jets fans, the dust has settled on what was a disaster of a Saturday night. Specifically, the disaster that was Wayne Hunter’s performance. He was dreadful. Heck, I was one of the first people on Saturday night tweeting out the #CutWayneHunter hashtag. I was irate.

But, cooler heads have started to prevail, at least with me. The Jets have guaranteed Wayne Hunter is salary, which is over $2 million. The Jets cannot cut him, unless they want to take the salary cap hit, so they will have this guy on the team. He doesn’t have to start, but he likely will be on the team.

Also, you have to remember, Hunter did a good job in 2010 filling in for Damien Woody. Nobody at the time was this worried about Wayne Hunter starting, when we began 2011. Were you? I wasn’t.

But yet, we now have this. Not a lot to be said other than, this. Wayne Hunter can’t block anybody these days. The Giants abused him on Saturday night, and it didn’t appear to take much effort. So, I have been thinking. A guy doesn’t just lose all his talent over night. I mean, obviously he isn’t at as good as he was expected to be, but you don’t go from everything to nothing overnight.

Unless you are injured. Wayne Hunter must be more injured than we thought. Turn the page to talk about it further.
