Found November 16, 2011 on Turn On the Jets:
You aren’t going to be at full strength for all of your games in a NFL season. Not surprisingly on a quick turnaround against the Denver Broncos, a handful of backup players will be seeing an increase of reps to compensate for a few minor injuries. At running back, special teams ace Joe McKnight should finally see extended action due to LaDainian Tomlinson missing the game with a sprained MCL. It will be nice to see McKnight get to catch a few screens in space and receive the primary third down responsibilities. He projects as the team’s long term third down back so this is a big opportunity for him. Also at running back rookie Bilal Powell should be active for the first time and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him get a few handoffs, as the team will likely want a look at him when something is actually on the line. Over at wide receiver, Jeremy Kerley and Patrick Turner will likely be game-time decisions. There is a very good chance recently signed WR Eron Riley will get to see som...

Audible: What Role Will McKnight & Powell Play Tonight?

With the news that LaDainian Tomlinson and Jeremy Kerley won’t play this weekend, the Jets offense will be limited without two players who have crucial roles on third downs.  This also would mean that unless the Jets activate another player, the Jets would only have two running backs.  So who will fill the void?  It would make sense that Joe McKnight could factor into the offensive...

Jets vs. Broncos: 12 Pack Of Predictions

Rough week for the 12 pack last Sunday, but we are back on the short week…we will keep it short and sweet in honor of that. 1. Over/under on Tebow completions? 10. And I am taking the under. 2. Joe McKnight will get at least 10 offensive touches. Bilal Powell will chip in 5. 3. Shonn Greene will have over 100 yards rushing. 4. Mark Sanchez won’t have any turnovers. 5. Tim Tebow...

More Drama

FLORHAM PARK–Sunday’s game against the Patriots didn’t go quite as well as the Jets had hoped. All week long, the focus was on beating the Patriots and taking over the division lead. Not only did it not happen, but New England’s win turned into a trouncing. It was odd, especially since the first drive of the game was exactly what the Jets had wanted to do all season long...
