New York Jets’ free agent offensive lineman Vladimir Ducasse has been heavily criticized throughout his career. When the Jets selected Ducasse with the 61st overall pick in the second round of the 2010, they knew the former Massachusetts Minutemen star was going to be a project. However, they liked his enormous size (he’s currently 6’4.5 and 325 pounds) and knew he had a...

Top 10 centers and guards in the 2014 NFL Draft

Nick Mangold will be the first and last person to tell you the New York Jets don’t need any help at center, and he’d be right. But that doesn’t mean Gang Green couldn’t use some help at guard. Vladimir Ducasse will finally be out of town next year (pause for a round of applause), and that leaves Brian Winters alone as an uncontested starting guard. And that’s a problem...

Will Vladimir Ducasse still be in the NFL next season? Can Brian Winters possibly...

Is Vince Wilfork dealing with an injury?

Vince Wilfork didn't quite look himself on Thursday against the Jets. It's something that's incredibly troubling if it keeps up. Wilfork is the anchor of the Patriots defense, and if he's not playing well, it could be a bad sign for the future of one of last year's most stout run defenses. Wilfork was handled pretty well by the Jets' Vladimir Ducasse. Yes...

New York Jets – How To Handle Offense In Final Five Games

In case you haven’t noticed the New York Jets offense is awful. Truly, almost indescribably awful. It is the lethal combination of mediocre talent, poor coaching and a lack of organization. The result is consistent failures in short yardage and the red-zone, turnovers, penalties and of course…ass-fumbles. Yet, there is still five games left to play. Five very winnable games...
