Jets asking fans to ‘whiteout’ MetLife Stadium

The Jets are asking their fans to participate in a “whiteout” of MetLife Stadium on Sunday.

To mimic the team, who will be wearing their white jerseys, the Jets want all fans in attendance to wear white. They will also be handing out white rally towels to fans entering the game.

If you don’t show up wearing white, the Jets are offering a 10 percent discount on white merchandise at their Jets Shop at the stadium.

The Jets want fans to get there early, so at 10:30 a.m., players and coaches will be walking along the Jets Runway, located between Lots F and G beginning at the MetLife Central Gate. If you enter the game more than 30 minutes before kickoff, you’ll receive 500 reward points through Jets Rewards.

The team wanted to stress the NFL’s clear bag policy, which states: Fans are permitted to bring inside the stadium one clear plastic bag that does not exceed 12”x 6”x 12” as well as one small clutch bag, approximately 4.5” x 6.5” (size of hand). Purses, handbags, seat cushions, camera and binocular cases are not permitted.

I'm more partial to the Greens as a home uni, but I think the idea is to make the Oaks fly 6 hours then run around in Black under an 80° sun all day until they wanna drop. Or puke.

NFL gamesmanship...

White? After Labor Day? The season didn't begin and already we've committed a faux pas.

I'm very anxious to see Pryor demonstrate his toughness against a guy like Reece....It will be interesting...and like Rexy said, NO EXCUSES !!!

Kyle Wilson is so bad they rather convert a Safety to CB then use him on the outside.

Anybody know what forms allowable contact in the first 5 yards? I've never been totally clear on it.

I am interested in seeing how the careers of Dennard, Brandin Cooks, Bridgewater, Clinton-Dix and others all play out.  I have a feeling we made a very good selection with Calvin Pryor.

@Brendan I'm trying to temper my expectations, but Pryor's dominant pre-season performance was eerily like Sheldon's last year.  He looks like a difference-maker.

Ugh, Wilson may be the top slot CB in the NFL, so why weaken your slot CB position and put Wilson where he isn't a difference maker?  Wilson will play where he plays best and the genius of Rex is that he gets the most out of the talent he's given on defense.

LEGAL CONTACT WITHIN FIVE YARDS 

Article 1 Legal Contact Within Five Yards. Within five yards of the line of scrimmage, a defensive player 

may chuck an eligible receiver in front of him. The defender is allowed to maintain continuous and 

 unbroken contact within the five-yard zone, so long as the receiver has not moved beyond a point that is 

 even with the defender.

@Marcus Armstrong 

I believe it's theoretically the same as what an offensive lineman can get away with. So no holding, tripping, etc.

EVERYONE should ALL be looking forward to seeing that 57 !!!

Nothing like seeing what we truly have !!!

@SackDance99 I'm the same way. I'm giddy thinking about what this guy can do, but don't want to get ahead of myself. But damn, he flies out there.

Do you truly believe that Wilson is one of the best slot CB's in the NFL?

@SackDance99 If were an O-coordinator I throw at Wilson relentlessly. Half my game plan would revolve around picking on Wilson.

@Bent @Marcus Armstrong 

They were explaining this on Inside the NFL with Brandon Marshall and Ed Reed.  The WR can only make contact with the CB if he is within one yard of him.  Two yards, WR cannot make contact with CB.  Maintaining continuous unbroken contact seems pretty difficult for CB's.

Both players were not happy with rules changes as explained by former referee.

@marcus Armstrong it's your typical press play. And WR can only pick DBS within one yard of line of scrimmage, ABSOLUTLY no jerzy pulling and no push offs at the top of the route.

Brendan

@Hanknaples Does this mean you're going to take a legal, fair hit that Pryor puts on someone and break it down for us telling us how it's dirty and cheap? 

Bent

@Marcus Armstrong @juunit The answer to your question is that they would just put receivers in motion to avoid being jammed by said monster.

If this guy dives at the knee section ala LeRon...ABSOLUTELY !!!

@SackDance99 @Bytor

Well, I don't know about that.


Wilson IS the weak link, because he's the CB#3.  That being said, every team's weak link is the CB#3, because they're less effective cover men than the CB#1 and CB#2, pretty much by definition.


And no team targets the CB#3 all the time, because that means intentionally not throwing to your WR#1 or WR#2 on the boundary, which limits your offense.


Rex would love it if teams threw at Wilson all day, just like every coach would love it if you threw at his nickel corner all day, because it means you're not throwing downfield and not using your two best passing game offensive weapons (and you're probably leaving yards on the table).

@SackDance99 @Bytor he's terrible, he's either getting a penalty or getting beat. Walls is a better corner. Rex just sticks with him because he picked his garbage behind up early in the draft.

@tsjc68 That scrub is only 6'2". 


Where the Big Show at?

@tsjc68 @SackDance99 @Bytor My comment is an exaggeration but I really think he's the weak link on this D. In a backhanded way it's also me saying I have a bit of confidence in our cb's getting it done until Dee comes back.

It's going to be a lot harder for a 6'8" monster to stay with a motioning receiver.  If he can, then arguably he should just be covering him normally anyway!

@Bytor @tsjc68 @SackDance99 Last season, Wilson in 279 covered plays in the slot, only gave up 24 receptions.  His 11.63 covered snaps per reception was the best in the NFL.  I know we all are disappointed with Wilson but he's actually very good in the slot, maybe even great.

Bytor
Bytor

@SackDance99 @Bytor @tsjc68 I don't know about very good or maybe even great. Maybe one of the least sucky of them all.

I look for the good stuff. I just don't see a good player in Wilson.

SackDance99

@Bytor @SackDance99 @tsjc68 If Wilson had to play every down in the slot, he'd probably decline.  But, just like a starter who fails but is reborn as a good relief pitcher, Wilson in short doses is a good player.

Bytor
Bytor

@SackDance99 @Bytor @tsjc68 He has his moments where the play goes to him and the play fails. Yet in many of those plays he doesn't affect the outcome. QB throws a bad pass, wr drops the ball, etc.

I'm sure he's the best we have right now. I look forward to the CB section of BGA's this year.
