6. This week the Jets face the Carolina Panthers in their 3rd pre-season game. To say that the Jets are struggling offensively is a massive understatement indeed. The Jets are the only team NOT to score a pre-season TD and their passing game has racked up a total of 140 passing yards in 2 games. I believe it’s a mixture of the Jets missing a lot of key offensive contributors, trying to gel together a new offense and the fact that they are trying to be as vanilla as possible. That needs to change this week. The Jets are in danger of utilizing the vanilla game planning to the point of counter productiveness. Offensive Coordinator Tony Sparano needs to go ahead and go green light with the first team offense from here on out. There’s simply no reason to continue the vanilla game calling as the season draws closer and closer, there isn’t a switch that the Jets have to turn their offense on and they needn’t act like there is.
7. Jets WR Chaz Schilens looked promising during OTAs but has been absent in training camp due to injuries. It’ll be hard to see Schilens making the roster having been sidelined for so long but if he manages to make the team, I believe he can become a very formidable asset in the passing and run game.
8. The St Louis Rams signed former Jets BUST DE/OLB Vernon Gholston. So am I the ONLY one that believes there’s seemingly NO way Gholston doesn’t look like Bruce Smith when the Rams and the Jets meet this season? OF COURSE he will, the universe will have it NO other way.
