Let’s watch a little game tape to end off our weekend.

We talked earlier this week about the running back competition. It seems that we all agree that there is a good chance that Joe McKnight finds himself on the outside looking in. Despite his versatility, Joe has never gotten the chance that a lot of us feel that he should. Well, while he is still on the team, let’s take look at some film.

First, Joe takes it back 107 yards on a kickoff against the Baltimore Ravens:

Here is a compilation of McKnight highlights, both from his days at USC and his time so far with the New York Jets:

He really is an exciting player to watch. As Jets fans, we can only hope that Marty tried to get him involved in the West Coast offense, to see if he would be a fit within the new concept. He certainly can make things happen in open space, which is a trait that not too many players have along our “high powered” offense.
