Are the New York Jets cornerback concerns overblown or justifiable?

When no. 1 cornerback Dee Milliner went down with a high ankle sprain, it was one of those, “Oh, here we go,” moments. Adding a season ending injury to rookie Dexter McDougle and a concussion for safety-turned-cornerback Antonio Allen to the mix, the Jets looked to be in big trouble.

New York Jets: Derek Carr Set to be First Challenge for Secondary

When the Oakland Raiders take the field at MetLife Stadium this Sunday, rookie Derek Carr will be the starting quarterback, not Matt Schaub. Carr, Oakland’s 2nd round pick out of Fresno State, had a stand-out pre-season in which he completed 11/13 passes for 143 yards and 3 touchdowns. That was enough to un-seat Schaub, who for most of the pre-season, was the assumed starter. Last...

I try to keep everything relative. I cover one team for isportsweb, but to say one team definitively will or will not make the playoffs ignores what the other fifteen teams in their conference are doing. Maybe a middling team has out-of-nowhere success (this tends to happen every year) and robs a playoff spot my New York Jets are vying for. But I’m here to write about the Jets...
