News: Jeremy Kerley ready to suit up Sunday against the Raiders

NFL: New York Jets at Atlanta Falcons

Last month, Jeremy Kerley suffered a rather grim dislocation of his elbow but according to the wide receiver he’s ready to take the field again this Sunday against the Raiders.

It’s the best news the Jets have had in a while.  The return of Kerley doesn’t fix everything, but it will certainly have a positive effect.

While the Jets 2013 receivers aren’t going to win any awards, there’s enough blame to spread around for everyone.  There’s been inconsistent play at the receiver spot, but the protection issues Winters is causing and Geno’s inability to make proper progressions or look off coverage aren’t helping matters.

Adding a solid slot target like Kerley back into the mix has the potential to do a few things.  First, it should give Geno some better hot read options and because of that we might see the quarterback get the ball out of his hand a bit quicker because of it, thereby negating the ugly play of Brian Winters.

Really ? So with each thread I'll have to reauthorize? That's really stupid.

I am sure we will get used to this, but sure doesn't feel like an improvement.  I hope Kerley makes a difference, but he won't be playing left guard.

Well, I didn't think it was possible, but TJB now has a comments format that's worse than DISQUS—and DISQUS sucked.

In the new format, the type in the comments section is so tiny, it's almost illegible.

And the same old sucky, useless SNY bands of bs are still hogging over two thirds of the screen.

Kerley should help a lot, because the other guys are so bad.

I was watching the Jaguars last night, and their receiving corps is a lot better, and they aren't very good.

I guess the Jets are favored by a field goal from what a friend told me. I haven't bothered to look at the lines. A 4-0 run works for me.

Brendan, Bent, anyone else who cares:)

What did u think of the WC draws today? USA is über screwed. Argentina, seemingly has the easiest run to the semis... But who knows. Are the draws randomized someway? With US having a German coach, Portugal having a well known (even here) superstar, and US's recent WC history with Ghana... It seems a bit much to have been a random process. Seemed more like the first rds of the major golf tourneys where some pairings are put together for the storylines.

@BenNevis Do feed back any issues to Andrew.  They haven't rolled out the whole system yet, so there will be the flexibility to make changes so it can be more user friendly in the long run.


They are working on the issues with an SNY account, but you could log in via your twitter account instead for the time being.  Notifications, changes to the font size, mobile functionality etc should all hopefully be in the pipeline if you feed back to Andrew.  I'm not really involved in the process.

f the change. This is all about SNY trying to data mine the commenters at TJB.

The comments section was so much more fluid and user friendly and legible about three or four iterations back, which is now some four or five years ago.

Thanks, but how does one feedback to Andrew?

And if he's in charge of the formatting of the comments section at TJB, why isn't he reading it?

And do you really think that no matter how many times I contact Andrew that SNY is going to get rid of the wide, ugly, useless banners of bs that hog about two-thirds of the screen?

These are rhetorical questions, Bent. I don't expect you to answer, especially given the position you're in.

I'm just pissed that SNY has had such a devastatingly ruinous effect on the formatting of TJB, one ugly, slow, non-user friendly iteration after another, and now it appears to have only gotten even worse.

The type in the comments section, for just one instance, is now so tiny it's almost illegible.

On the screen of my ipad mini, the word "illegible" is three-tenths of an inch wide and less than a tenth of an inch high.

Hey artist formerly known as Brendan,


I checked out that comparison of Bridgewater to Rodgers and look at TB's release point.  Rodgers has a classic set up and release.  Ball right to the earhole and a dart to the receiver.  TB sets up a bit low then has a looping motion, so his release isn't as quick.  Hey, TB might be a great QB, but I'm not loving the Rodgers comparison from a mechanics standpoint.

Yeah, I like the name better too, but everyone built up the cache and name recognition as the previous.  Time to start over for all of us.

Well, with each new and inferior iteration, one after another, I find myself simply coming to this site less often. It got to the point, during the DISQUS iteration, that I hardly commented here any more at all. And I had once commented quite often, quite a number of times each day. But some time back, it simply became too difficult to comment here, even with state-of-the-art devices. And now it appears to be even more difficult, more unpleasant than ever before.

All of which is to say, it looks as though I'll be visiting—and commenting on—this site now even less often than I did during the DISQUS days.

If SNY insists on imposing a crappy format on TJB, the effect is simply to push me away.

I wish it were otherwise. I miss the long, involved exchanges I used to have here with Bent and others.

But SNY has all but destroyed this site. So it looks like I'll be checking in only now and then to see what Bent and a few of the others have to say.

Yes, I saw that email address not long after my post to you above, and I did email Andrew, and said exactly what I said in a post on the "Comments Are Changing Today" thread.

@BenNevis He put his email address in the post announcing the change and asked for any comments that he said he'd be happy to address.

Haven't seen any comparisons wrt quick releases on the prospective college QB's coming out this year, so if you see one after most declare eligible please post the link.


IMO a quick release is as important as arm strength. With 2 equally strong arms, the quicker release will thread the smaller pro-needle, avoid sacks & beat the other guy every time. Note: Assuming they have similar football smarts.
