Nice set of articles when in truth there's hardly anything to talk about

Do the reporters get access to the mini-camp this week?

Is Geno going to hold his version of Jets West?

Rex: "I don’t believe the one guy up in New England's got all the answers"

Lions cut UDFA James Gayle from Virginia Tech.  Liked him as a SAM developmental guy.  Apparently he has a bum shoulder and might not be able to play this year.


Perhaps we could pick him up, bring him to Cortland and either let him compete for a PS spot or stash him on IR for the year, let him learn the playbook and give it a go for 2015.

Look out everybody - Geno learned the offense!  Kid is going to be a fire in a few months.  Hopefully Rex sat him down and taught him his colors too.  Maybe he'll stop throwing the ball to the other team twice a game.

Stills, Dobson, Milliner, Bell, Cyprien, Reed, and Ertz, yeah, that's actually a pretty good list of sophomore breakout candidates.  I have nothing bad to say about that article.


And the commenters also did a solid job suggesting Vaccaro, Geno, and Jarvis Jones (although you could argue that Vaccaro is already "broken out", his rookie year was pretty good.

Todd McShay for ESPN published a mock draft 2015 on ESPN insider. The Jets he has sloted having the 5th overall pic in this draft. I understand that every body doesnt get it right. and most sports writers where wrong lat year. Let me just add the the consensus pretty much gave the Jets a B+ for drafting for needs and a B- for value..I guess giving me something to  gauge going into training camp....Based on what Rex seems to think allways is a huge factor. Rex calls it like it is.

I just can't be bothered reading a Cimini article.  It might be Pulitzer material, but just the expectation of sly digs at the team, owner and front office puts me off the idea.

@a57se I sure hope he holds a Jets West, so that we have have breathless commentary on "WILL VICK ATTEND?!?!?!??!?!?!"

@jake100 No, he's supporting his teammate. He also acknowledges "it's a business" and it's more about him just wanting Mo around. Non-issue.

@Hanknaples You realize you're talking about the reigning DROY and one of Dame's best friends on the team, right?

@Brendan @jake100 

Its good when teamates like each other . However I think we should give Sheldon Richardson an Oscar for that performance

@Hanknaples

"he should stay the F out unless he's asked"


He was asked. This quote is an answer to a question from the media. 


Players say this stuff all the time, it's not a big deal. In the long run, it shows they're a tight-knit group and they want each other to succeed. Wilkerson already said it won't be a problem this year, so what are you crying about?

@Hanknaples  "he should stay the F out unless he's asked or needed"


This is what we say about you, Hank.

@Hanknaples That your railing about this suggests to me that Sheldon did the right thing. Can you give us some stock tips so we can do the opposite and make some cash?

@Hanknaples Answer: He was asked. He answered honestly. What's the problem? 


Serious question: Besides Snacks, what do like about the NY Jets?

@Brendan @Hanknaples 

He wasn't talking about being asked by the media....he was talking about Mo asking Sheldon to speak on the matter.

@a57se I'm fully aware of what hank was saying, I'm messing with him. Thanks, 57, always a pleasure.
