NY Jets News: Quincy Enunwa suspension is no major loss


The NY Jets have more than enough offensive weapons to make up for the loss of wide receiver Quincy Enunwa as his suspension is no major loss.

Some Thoughts on Ryan Fitzpatrick by Scott Salmon (GangGreenNation.com)

"After yesterday’s game, I was baffled how anyone thought Fitzpatrick had a good game. I thought he had a phenomenal touchdown run, but he was so plainly and evidently the weak link on the offense to me and his limitations so vividly on display that I just didn’t understand it. I rewatched the game, and my thoughts have somewhat changed."

While I admit that Fitzpatrick has been far from perfect, a win is a win in my book. It might not be pretty but in the grand scheme of things, what is on the wins and losses column is all that truly matters. The Jets are 4-1 for the season and even though Fitzpatrick has yet to have a game where he doesn’t throw an interception, he’s been a driving force on offense. He’s having fun on the field and is using his veteran leadership to guide the Jets right to victory. The Jets are scoring points and winning football games despite his issues with interceptions.

New York Jets: Chris Ivory Continues To Lead The Way by Kenneath Teape (EmpireWritesBack.com)

"This makes two dominant games in a row for Ivory. Prior to the bye week, he ripped through the Miami Dolphins in London for 166 yards and one touchdown. That was a career-high for Ivory in rushing yards, and was also the most yards gained in the 12-game history of the NFL’s International Series."

The way Ivory plays is truly something to behold. His aggressive style of running compliments everything the Jets are trying to establish on offense. The Jets will be a contender or pretender based on the kind of season Ivory produces. If he keeps this up, the Jets will definitely be able to make the NFL Playoffs and who knows from there since he’s a man that is running with purpose in his contract year. Ivory continues to make a bigger name for himself as fans of his work are growing with every passing week.

Loss of Quincy Enunwa will not hurt Jets’ passing game by Rich Cimini (ESPN)

"Frankly, I don’t think it hurts them at all in the passing game. Enunwa is a liability as a receiver — only eight catches in 17 targets, including three drops. The coaching staff is infatuated with his size (6-foot-2, 225 pounds) and blocking ability, preferring him over the more accomplished . Maybe now Kerley will get more reps; that would be a good thing. Jeremy Kerley"

It’s unfortunate to see the Jets deal with a player that is suspended and unable to play but the truth of the matter is, it won’t significantly impact their offense. Enunwa’s primary role was that of a blocker as he wasn’t really used on offense as a big receiving threat. He’s done well in this role but now this definitely opens things up for others on the depth chart to step up and take his place. The Jets have a solid receiving corps of talented athletes that will no doubt try to impress many with the increased reps they will get as Enunwa serves his suspension for domestic violence.

For a change, Jets-Patriots will have impact on standings by Rich Cimini (ESPN)

"The Patriots are 5-0, the Jets 4-1. As former Patriot said after Sunday’s win, “We’ve been playing lights out.” The last time the bitter rivals played a regular-season game with this much meaning was 2011, when both teams entered at 5-3. Darrelle Revis"

The Week 7 matchup between the Jets and Patriots will no doubt be a turning point for each franchise. Can the Jets drop the biggest upset of the season against the Patriots and shock the football world? Will the Patriots completely obliterate the Jets and ground their high expectations they set for themselves this season? This will be a huge matchup that pits the incredible offense of the Patriots against one of the best defenses in the NFL. Not to mention this AFC East rivalry tends to put on some incredible football as it’ll more than likely come down to the wire.
