Tweet: Chris Kreider Playing “The Right Way”


Adam Rotter: If Kreider works his way onto the PK, with his speed, this could be a common occurrence. Carl Hagelin, who should see more PK time, also fits into this category.

Geno Smith was going to be the starter regardless. Vick knows he is 2 or 3 bad games from Geno from taking that job. No need for urgency. That is close to being a sure bet.

I think the success of the Jets WRs as a group depends alot on Hill. I don't expect Hill to do much and as a result the Jets WRs will again be a group that is closer to being 32nd rather than 1st in ratings.

Some here have stated that Kerley is the clear #2 WR like it is a good thing. This group of WRs will be easy to defend against. Without a speedy WR opposite Decker he will not have close to the success he had in Denver. There is going to be a traffic jam of WRs for the Jets with no one stretching the field.

Hill's last year if he doesn't come around, his saving grace are all the injuries to the receivers

According to Jenny Vrentas of Sports Illustrated, some Jets coaches have expressed disappointment that Michael Vick didn't show up more hell-bent on winning the starting job.

"I had some great years and played in some great games and went through a lot," Vick said. "Now it’s an opportunity for me to refresh myself and take a step back away from the game." Vick is resigned to the fact that he's Geno Smith's backup, but some want more urgency out of him since he's one play away from being the starter. At 34, Vick seems to admit his time is running out. 

Oh No, I guess Jenny is going over to the DARK side.

Hahaha, Le'Veon Bell didn't know you could get a DUI for being stoned. 


That rookie symposium is really doing god's work.

@Pat d I think you're right about Hill being the wild card. We know what Decker, Kerley and even Nelson is at this point. If Hill is a non-factor then the WRs are just ok, if he busts out they can be a serious crew.

The fact that Vick is one play away from being the starter was set in stone from day one. Vick was going to be the back up. Vick knows it is more likely he is 2 or 3 bad games from Geno to becoming the starter. No need for urgency because it is sure to happen.

@a57se We all miss Jenny covering the Jets. At least, we should.

@a57se Wait, Vick is confirmed to not be the starter? That's not what ESPN, the NYDN, and whoever Costello works for keep telling me.

Vick has wizened up over the years.  I appreciate the way he's handled himself.  What good would it do for him to make a big stink about being the starter?  If it's in the cards, then it will come to him in due time.  I want Geno to succeed, but Vick deserves a starting shot, somewhere, sometime.

@a57se i came out after the vick signing and stated that it was a bad signing. i have nothing against vick personally and feel he has paid his debt to society ect but i think the time he was inprison diminished his skills. that and his age led me to believe he is washed up. they were better off going with simms. i like simms and think he is capable of being a starter. who knows what his capability is? no one knew what brady could do until he was given a chance right?

I've ran into people in LA who think that because you can legally smoke it you can also legally drive on it.

I think the craziest part is how a guy named Blount avoided marijuana charges.

You know what, I have to give props to Vick, he's really been a class act.

Not if this drivel is the best she can do.   More 'let's try and create a story where there isn't one ' type of tripe.    Jenny is inching closer to Cimini and Manish.  Getting so it's not safe to read anything about the Jets in the media.

I don't like Vick either but he is better than Simms. Hell he's better than Geno.

@j_spikett @a57se 

I felt similarly about the Vick signing but Rex was hellbent on getting him like he was with Jason Taylor, LT, Derrick Mason and others...

The part about the article that raised flags to me was that there are allegedly Jets coaches who don't think vick has put in enough effort...Jenny implies that Vick is complacent about being the back-up..

@Disgruntled Jets Fan


I asked him if he, or any of his passengers smoked marijuana today and he replied, "It was about a minute ago." I asked him if he could define what he meant by that and he replied "We smoked within the last two hours."



Hahaha what an idiot. "It was about a minute ago." Are youuuuuu kidding me?

@nickballs Jenny was anything but garbage when she covered the Jets.

@hazard2012 @williamg1 @a57se I don't know. I read the article and its pretty balanced. Doesn't seem like she's trying to do anything wrong. It was actually pretty insightful.

I think Vick knows the job was Geno Smith's the whole time and he didn't want to play this game of charades as to who will win a one sided QB competition with the media.  I think he has helped Geno as much as a veteran QB is capable of doing in training camp.  

And if the Jets need somebody to play QB because of either inefficiency or injury,  Michael Vick can still play QB in that role and the Jets will be in better shape than last year.  Vick has proven his legs and arm are still very good.

I can't for the life of me figure out why people are so against having a decent backup QB after last season.

@a57se yeah im sure this story legit....the jets have stopped all leaks since Idzik, but now they all leaking that they dont like Vick..sure.....

@williamg1 @hazard2012 @a57se


Somewhat disagree.   For whatever reasons, Vick has apparently come to terms with his situation here with the Jets.  He wasn't brought here to displace Geno...until/unless Geno falters.   That was always the basic condition of his employment.  It's never been about who's better this year, but who's potentially better for the Jets two and three years down the road...,when Idzik believes the team he's assembling will be otherwise ready to vie for a championship.  


Vick is an insurance policy in case Geno isn't that guy.   He's got enough left to bridge the gap if Geno stumbles and the Jets need to get a long-term solution at QB next year.


Why is that so hard for the media to grasp?  Probably the same reason they're fixated on Jonny Benchball.   They don't know enough about the game or the teams playing it to write anything of real substance.

I'd call them stupid if they had made up some ridiculous story that made avbsolutely no sense.

In this situation, they just weren't 'street smart' enough to not tell the truth...I don't have a problem with that. I prefer that to natural liars.

they are honest idiots.......

Because they are stoned and usually stoners are peaceful loving idiots who don't really care about lying. 

That's not a commentary on legalization or being judgemental in it's use,  but if you are a professional athlete with a contract,  you do need to understand it or you are pretty stupid.
