Jets compared FS Marcus Gilchrist to Tyrann Mathieu in offseason

The New York Jets spent their offseason completely overhauling the team. It began in the secondary where the group was especially weak in 2014. Darrelle Revis was the big-name acquisition, but he wasn't the only one.The Jets also went after Antonio Cromartie and Buster Skrine to shore up the cornerback position for Todd Bowles. Of course, cornerback isn't the only position in the...

Joe Thomas on Browns letting productive players leave via free agency: 'Teams that have consistent coaching staffs, GMs – they have patience with their guys'

Cleveland Browns left tackle Joe Thomas took a shot at the team's front office and their lack of stability and inability to keep young players who are now shining for other teams. Thomas said it's tough to watch players like Jabaal Sheard (Patriots), Buster Skrine (Jets) and T.J. Ward (Broncos) excel, espcially when they were once Browns. "It's a tough one," Thomas said, via Cleveland...

Jets’ Defense Cannot Make Up For Lack Of Elite Quarterback

In the New York Jets’ first two games of the season, they steamrolled their opponents and won by a margin of at least two scores. Starting quarterback Geno Smith suffered a busted jaw—at the hands of a teammate, embarrassingly. This seemed like a case of “everything happens for a reason” with Ryan Fitzpatrick taking over the offense and throwing two touchdowns in both games...

Jets CB Buster Skrine on Luck: Pressure 'makes him throw harder'

For the second straight week, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck struggled with turnovers. He has thrown five interceptions this season and lost one fumble, contributing to the Colts' 0-2 start.One of the main reasons for Luck's inconsistency this year has to do with a poor offensive line protecting him. He's only been sacked twice this season, but he's constantly throwing...

Cleveland Browns at New York Jets: 2015 Week 1 NFL Pick

Cleveland Browns (0-0) at New York Jets (0-0) I believe these two teams are similar in their talent level and this line basically does that too, as the home team Jets are favored by 3.5 points. That suggests they’re just a little bit better than the Browns. The problem is that I think it’s the other way around and that the Browns are a little bit better than the Jets, which gives...

New York Jets: Position Preview: Cornerback

The New York Jets enjoyed quite the face-lift this off-season as new general manager Mike Maccagnan cleaned house, bringing in a new head coach and a number of new (and old) talented players. Perhaps no area in the Jets roster faced more of an upgrade though than the team’s secondary–specifically, the cornerbacks. The additions of Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie and Buster...

Evaluating the New York Jets’ Safeties

The Gang Green’s secondary has gotten a major shot in the arm with the additions of Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie and Buster Skrine. Revis shuts down half of the field, Cro’ can still run with just about anyone and Skrine will efficiently patrol the slot. Those guys take a lot of pressure off of the leaky pass defense the Jets sported last year. What about the safety play...

Other than that, the defense is practically the same! Jokes aside, New York's defense...

The New York Jets made a lot of improvements to the secondary in the off-season. They had good reason, as they were routinely torched in 2014. They added the big names, reuniting Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie on the outside. But, they also added a guy not so well-known. They added a guy named Buster Skrine.
