New York Jets
BOOOOOOOO!!!!! The New York Jets have their first home pre-season game tonight and Mark Sanchez will be starting at quarterback. BOOOOO!!!!!!! Of course Jets fans will enthusiastically boo their starting quarterback before he even takes a snap. Let’s crack open the 12 Pack and get into our Jets/Jags preview
1. The battle at wide receiver for roster spots and playing time is becoming more intriguing by the day. Stephen Hill and Clyde Gates have put together stronger than expected camps and are locks to make the roster with Jeremy Kerley. The three of them have predominantly been working with the first offense. Santonio Holmes will claim another roster spot, even if he doesn’t end up playing until week 6 or 7.

A handful of Sunday thoughts on the New York Jets second pre-season game, a 37-13 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars
1. This was a concerning night all-around for the New York Jets defense. The book on them still looks to be: pick up the pace and get the ball out quickly to your skill position players in space, forcing the Jets to make open field tackles. Dee Milliner had a “Welcome...
