MICHAEL VICK NEWS

Drafting a tight end is the New York Jets’ biggest need

As I discussed earlier this week, the New York Jets have improved their offense to the point of unrecognizability. Michael Vick will compete with Geno Smith for the starting quarterback job while also serving as a seasoned mentor. Eric Decker and Jacoby Ford are quality upgrades to what was one of the weakest receiving corps in the league. Chris Johnson adds explosive play-making...

Michael Vick With Jets, But Bleeds Eagles At Heart (Photo)

Photo Credit: @MikeVick/Twitter A fan had taken a picture with newly acquired Jets’ QB Michael Vick in an airport. Vick seems to still love representing Philadelphia as he was seen wearing a Phillies’ cap while taking the photo. Who could blame Vick?

Jets’ patience “wearing thin” with receiver Stephen Hill

The New York Jets drafted wide receiver Stephen Hill with the 43rd overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft with big hopes that he would turn into a playmaker. Unfortunately after his first three NFL seasons, he has shown nothing of that potential and has left the Jets very frustrated with his lack of production. According to reports coming out of New York, the Jets’ patience is “wearing...

Why the New York Jets should trade up in the first round

It’s nice to go 8-8 when the world expected you to go 3-13. There is a less desirable effect, though – you drop down in the draft order. After winning a few December games and losing a few unlucky strength-of-schedule tiebreakers, the New York Jets have the 18th pick in next month’s NFL Draft. While this year’s draft class is talented and the Jets should have no problem finding...

In reality, it is asinine, it’s conceited and it doesn’t benefit you, either. To clarify for readers who may not understand...

The Michael Vick Effect: New York Jets Running Backs

When Michael Vick signed with the New York Jets, my first move was to pat myself on the back for making an aggressive Eric Decker projection the week before. Unfortunately, my second move was to do some light statistical research. For his career, Vick is the owner of a 56.2% completion percentage, which actually makes it fair to wonder just how much of an upgrade the Jets (and their...

New York Jets: Vick’s Arrival Can Be Good News For Geno Smith

The era of the butt fumble in New York is well and truly over. The arrival of Michael Vick from Philadelphia saw Mark Sanchez’s tenure with the Jets end, as he headed to the city of Brotherly Love to effective replace Vick. On the face of the deal, Vick’s one year deal (reported to be for $5 million) would appear to be bad news for Geno Smith, who was the starter for the Jets...
