Tomorrow night is week two of the preseason. The starters will play around one half of the game, so we will see Geno Smith and company for a more extended game test tomorrow night. Geno Smith, Eric Decker, Muhammad Wilkerson and the rest of Rex Ryan’s Jets head to Ohio to face Andy Dalton, A.J Green and the rest of the Bengals.
Here are some players I will be watching:
ANTONIO ALLEN: I think we all know by now, tomorrow night is Allen’s big shot. With the injuries at cornerback, Antonio Allen will be starting on the outside. With A.J Green looking at him from the other side of the line of scrimmage, it will be as good of a test as any of Allen’s coverage skills. Coach Rex Ryan is confident, we will see tomorrow night if that confidence is well placed.
STEPHEN HILL: This game might very well be the swan song for Stephen Hill. The former second round pick is not doing himself any favors with his play during training camp lately. If Hill doesn’t put on a good showing against the Bengals, the Jets might have no choice but to say goodbye to one of Mike Tannenbaum’s last choices.
CALVIN PRYOR: The Jets’ first round pick is set to make his debut tomorrow night, and coach Ryan believes he will play for a majority of the game. Calvin is known for his fierce hitting, and Ryan says he will not hold back due to his previous concussion. It should be fun to watch Calvin run around and pound people.
GENO SMITH: It is time for Geno Smith to step up and take hold of his starting job. He has been up and down during training camp. In the game against the Colts, Geno had his moments, but the offense sputtered. The only Jets’ offensive touchdown was led by Michael Vick, so Geno had better get it going to keep his position as the starting quarterback.
Who are some of the players you will be watching tomorrow night?
