Surprise Receivers to Make the Roster?

The New York Jets were haunted by inefficienty and injury in 2013, so perhaps GM John Idzik’s core value of competition has come to the forfront as the front office gets ready to name its opening day roster. Greg Salas celebrates his first touchdown of the preseason, versus the Giants on Aug 22nd. (AP) Wide receivers Saalim Hakim and Greg Salas appeared to be on the outside-looking...

A Random Collection of Awful New York Jets Jerseys

Because we all need a break from debating Greg Salas, Stephen Hill, Daryl Richardson and the rest of the bubble players on the New York Jets roster… …Don’t be the guy or gal wearing any of these jerseys this season or ever again for that matter.  Nothing like a customized jersey for a one year role player.

Matt Simms celebrates touchdown by salsa dancing, referee is entertained

During the 4th quarter of the Giants’ 35-24 preseason win over the Jets, Jets QB Matt Simms connected with WR Greg Salas for an 11-yard touchdown. To celebrate, Simms decided to try his hand at Giants WR Victor Cruz’s signature salsa dance. Simms’s salsa was so bad, or good depending on how you look at it, that a nearby referee just couldn’t hold it together. Related posts...

New York Jets – The Offensive Roster Shuffle

Due to a shoulder injury it appears that rookie 4th round wide receiver Shaq Evans is going to be headed to the New York Jets IR. This isn’t an overly surprising thing for many who have been following the team, considering the current depth chart and the potential to give a developmental prospect like Evans a “red-shirt” season. Sixth round rookie, Quincy Enunwa is likely headed...

Top 10 free-agent receivers for the New York Jets

The Jets had problems at receiver all last season. Jeremy Kerley was hurt on and off for the whole season. Stephen Hill couldn’t really catch the ball or run routes.  Santonio Holmes was more miserable than a six-year-old whose ice cream just fell off the cone. Greg Salas was…someone who actually played a role. That means the Jets may be targeting a receiver come free agency...

Top 5: Looking at the best receiver prospects

Throw the ball to a 2013 Jets receiver. He probably won’t catch it. That was the story all season for the Jets. Santonio Holmes was either hurt, disgruntled, or ineffective. Stephen Hill got off to a relatively hot start only to vanish in the second half of the season before finishing the year on the IR. Greg Salas had games when he led the team in yards. For the Jets to move Jeremy...

New York Jets Recreation Football – Week 12 Passing Game Breakdown

The New York Jets passing game was an unmitigated disaster in week 12 against the Baltimore Ravens. After going through the tape, this was a unit wide failure that likely trickles down from Rex Ryan’s input to offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and includes unsteady play from the quarterback, offensive line, tight ends, running backs and wide receivers. It is easy to immediately...
