Joe McKnight deserves another chance at RB in my opinion and in Marty Mornhinweg's offense. He just might get it. From a roster value standpoint, I think Joe is an explosive athlete who has proven his worth as a pro bowl kick returner. McKnight was mis-used by Sparano last season. The Jets were last in the league in plays over 20 yards. Guess who was responsible for most of them. Yes, McKnight fumbled on thanksgiving but I remember him playing hurt for the Jets and performing well for the Jets against the Pats in New England when the Jets were battling for first place. A game they should have won. Ray Lucas called Joe a warrior after that game. Joe is worthy of a spot on the team in 2013. 2014, that remains to be seen.
Well, he'll likely get that next chance as you say. The Jets cannot cut all of their dead weight due to cap implications, etc. I'll also support it as I would love to be wrong about McKnight.
I just know that I am not wrong. Joe McKnight is a flop. If it wasn't for Mike Westhoff, he'd be another one of the biggest bum draft picks in NYJ history.
