Gamethread: Jets at Eagles, 7 p.m.

Game: The Jets and Eagles play their final preseason game before the regular season on Thursday night in Philly.

Time: 7 p.m. on CBS

What to Watch: It will be interesting to watch who plays cornerback and how they do heading into the regular season. Ellis Lankster and LeQuan Lewis are expected to start.

Six of the nine receivers are expected to make the final cut. Which six will it be? Greg Salas, Stephen Hill and Clyde Gates are all on the bubble.

In the backup QB department, Michael Vick returns to Philly, but won’t to play much according to Rex Ryan. For the Eagles, Mark Sanchez is not expected to suit up and face his old team.

Our Jets just surrendered 557 yards and 265 rushing and 37 points. Might have some serious depth issues. This better put the lanksters a quality cb crap to rest. Oh and bent, game 4 last season. Watch walls coverage on the td pass. What a joke. This is going to be a rough ride. Hope our o can keep pace.

pretty disappointed in the rookie class after first 2 picks... I know we got 2 redshirts out of it, but no one else really stepped up.... I hope they can get on the PS and develop. Also have to think something better than what we have at WR will show up on the waiver wire... I think we are going to be shopping pretty hard, which is a bit sad with 12 draft picks...

I think the way Hill  was rubbing that hand he could be hurt.

I like Hakim on coverage but, I don't think he is a good returner.  It takes more than speed.

Pre season means nothing

Don't care about this game

Amazing that Hill can't even dominate against scrubs - all that size and speed wasted

Idzik - go sign some DB's

I'm hoping and praying Idzik can pickup a CB with the final cut. The next few days will be interesting.

The second team Jets Defense is terrible. Ditto for the offense. And Idzik should be fired for not signing Revis and not signing or drafting any capable CBs. It will be a long season especially if any key 1st team players get hurt.

@j3tsfan29 so watch one play from last season where he looked bad???  what about all the plays where he looks great in coverage??  Should we watch the one at bat where Beltran struck out looking to say his whole career sucked?  or realize that he's one of the best post season hitters in the league?

Lankster will be just fine as our 3rd man on the outside (4th if the Allen experiment works out).  Especially with starting Safeties behind him.  The panic routine is stupid.

Do we have the best corners in the league...hell no.  could it be better...of course.  Is it a catastrophe of epic proportions....also no.

The first two picks are the key to a draft.


With 10 other picks if just 3 or 4 turn into solid players this will be a quality draft for us.

@buddyryan  I don't know.  Taking him our early could mean that they don't want him to get hurt, not that they have seen enough.  The rest of the receivers are nothing special either.

@joemustgo They should cut him on the sideline. Make him take off his jersey, and exit with the fans.

When Manziel is good I will take tremendous pleasure in knowing that tsjc68 was completely wrong as he was about Hill, Vlad, Shaq Evans etc. I won't pick on Brendan also for being wrong (lol)

@Ron Jones  not realistic a decent CB will be cut loose, those are in high demand, might have to trade for one, Jets have enough good DE to trade one if necessary, of course Idzik could have just signed a good CB to avoid this 

williamg1

@Ron Jones Don't worry. Everything's fine. Sure, we go up against the best QBs in the league to begin the first half of the season, but don't worry. Everything's just great.

@harold @carlhungus


It was foolish to use all 12 picks and not trade up for a quality receiver or CB.....There were plenty of guys rated higher at WR and CB the Jets took a pass on

@harvlis @buddyryan Your'e right about that, if your'e going to cut youre losses with Hill then your'e going to replace him with who? You have the 3 locks Decker, Kerley and Nelson. Then you have Hakim and Saunders who will make it due to special teams. Then it depends on how many receivers they want to carry. Salas has been consistent, but so are the top 3, we need a burner who can stretch a defense, otherwise defenses will just clamp down on the receivers. Enunwa can go to the PS, I say we keep Gates and Hill, if for anything to open stuff up underneath.

@harvlis @buddyryan If he were an Idzik draft pick, he'd have a much better chance. I just don't think he's a football player. He's still body-catching.

@bradysucks how can a person be wrong about Shaq Evans? Dude hasn't even played a snap in the regular season yet.

I convinced that Manzeil is gonna be really good. The hole process in the way he plays and gets rid of the ball is fast.

@bradysucks 


If Manziel starts changing his game he is going to be in trouble. His game is creating opportunities for himself and the rest of the offense, not sitting back, dissecting the defense, analyzing the defense, and then breaking the defense down. He thrives in putting himself and the offense in the best position possible to score.

@Pete 57 Idzik should be fired because he didn't put together a well enough 3rd team offense and defense to play well in the 4th preseason game. What an idiot Idzik is!!!!!

@bradysucks @harold @carlhungus


It is starting to look like a less-than-stellar draft class for Idzik.  And you're right, the two biggest needs heading into the draft are the one's Idzik whiffed on most.   

harvlis
harvlis

@williamg1 @harvlis @buddyryan  He's got size and speed going for him but, I agree, he is not a natural receiver.  He might make the team because the other recievers are nothing special and he is still young.

Tsjc68 said Shaq Evans & Stephen Hill were better than Salas and that Salas wouldn't make the team.

I don't know what the final roster will look like but Salas outplayed them both

Manziel doesn't need to change his game

He just needs to learn the offense and be himself. He's Johnny F'in Manziel and that is enough

I wanted the Jets to draft him & got killed on this blog :) Surprise!

I think Manziel does give the Browns the best chance to win however he needs to work harder now than ever before to unseat Hoyer and establish himself.

@bradysucks 

 The only issue I see with the Browns is that Pettine really has cojones to go into the season with 2 quarterbacks. Rex Grossman isn't the kind of quarterback to push Manziel for the backup spot. Conner Shaw may not even make the team. With only 2 quarterbacks on the team the Browns are really setting themselves up for change. It would be a mistake to press Manziel into the starting lineup this season regardless if there is an injury to Hoyer. Pettine didn't get another veteran quarterback in camp to push Manziel and then push Hoyer. It was always a two quarterback race from the start of training camp to end.
