How do we stack up talentwise.I consider these to be the Premium positions on a Football team,so let's see what we have.
QB = Mark Sanchez
LT = Brick Ferguson
PR = Vernon Gholston
NT = Kris Jenkins
CB = Darrelle Revis
Looks like we're short 1 Premium position Player.
Top Players at the other Positions
OL = Mangold
RB = Leon Washington
TE = Dustin Keller
WR = Jerrico Cotchery
S = Kerry Rhodes
Looks like we maybe short 1 bigtime wr.
Overall,the Jets appear to have solid to quality people at every level on the team.Is this team now a contender.
Dont forget about the 1-2 punch of David Harris and Bart Scott because I cant think of a 3-4 Defense with a better 1-2 Punch at the IMLB positions. Put those two guys behind Kris Jenkins? Our run defense can be tough as nails here in 2009.
Also...What about Faneca? He's one of the best if not best LG in the game today when it comes down to run blocking.
make no mistake about it, this team has talent. we were a head coach away from doing big things last year. tannenbaum will get us a good WR before camp starts and If sanchez is who we hope he is we have as good a chance as anyone to win the division.
Having a stud WR would be so nice. Itís possible we could be okay though if the young guys pick it up. Last year our receivers couldnít separate from coverage much. Right now I anticipate having Clowney and Cotchery as wideouts and Stuckey in the slot. Clowney is so key for us as things stand. His limited experience, I believe, give him a better chance at providing that impact we need as compared to one of these hopefuls just drafted.
