Decastro is starting, Glenn is starting, Couples is not. Decastro had a bad 1st week in practice, but so did couples, that is why Rex took him of the 1st string an had him playing with the 2s. . Reif is playing behind Backus and will start next year when Backus does hang it up, similar to Light and Solder and Kevin Zeitler looked solid both against the Jets and Falcons. Your happy with Coples, fine. But don't minimize the contributions that were had by the olineman taken.
The Jets had a playoff caliber Defense last year, the offense struggled. They spent more resources on the defense than offense and they have for years.
The question should be when will they quit spending all the resources and money on the d and let the offense wither. Why spend 3 picks on sanchez
if your not going to give him some tools.
Actually, they have spent alot of resources on O.
2 first rounders on O line.
1 high first on QB
tradeup first round on TE
Trade 2 picks for WR
Trade picks for another WR
Trade up high 3rd for RB
Trade pick for Wildcat guy
