    Depleted WR Corps - Mulligan at WR?

    At one point, Mulligan went in again prompting my buddy and I to make cracks about a blocking TE who couldn't block. Much to our surprise, the Jets went with 4 WR's on the play with Mulligan (yes, big slow no hands Mulligan) sent out wide right.

    While the play worked as Sanchize hit someone else, the fact that the Jets have to send Mulligan, Keller, and/or Connor out wide in 4 WR sets shows the complete lack of depth in the receiving corps.

    1) Holmes: Good, but not great slashing WR. Some ability to get deep, but not a lot.
    2) Burress: tall, but relatively slow WR
    3) Kerley (injured): small, speed slot receiver
    4) Turner: the worlds first blocking specialist WR. While not horrible, not deep threat and he looks like he might eat himself into a position change to TE.

    With Kerley out, the Jets don't have anyone on their roster or practice squad that they are even willing to let take the field.

    Don't need to sign A big name, but someone should be available to play 4th WR on a team that only carries 4 active RB/FB

    The Jets miss Kerley quite a bit. There is no one to work the middle of the field. Also noticed that turner was in a lot of 2 WR sets.

    when the halfback, fullback or 2nd tight end is split out,

    they get a different personnel group from the defense (Substitutions) then if they brought 4 WR on to the field.

    also Jets fans might know Matt Mulligan is terrible but a special team 4th string defensive back forced into action doesn't know that. He needs to cover the big dude #82 that's all he knows.

    LOL, yea those guys on the cusp of the roster never pay attention in meetings or study their butts off on the off chance they get the call. :rolleyes:

    McKnight looks pretty good at WR too but the jets need another WR and smashmouth RB. Did i forget the jets need a backup TE bad!!!

    Burress
    Holmes

    Every other NFL team can get 4 WR's on the field at least some of the time.

    the Jets can too... but 4 WR means 5 or more DBs coming from the sideline. Jets make substitutions the Bills make em too.

    I don't even understand what we are concerned about the WR on a day like today.

    The Jets aren't deep at WR, we know this. I would re-sign Burress and add another WR that has downfield ability.

    We need a #2 TE that can block and catch as well.

    Hence, we re-sign Edwards for cheap in the offseason not to mention drafting one early

    This kind of logic is baffling.

    What are you concerned with then...

    actually i think the offense would be ok if they put mcknight and kerley out there. i'd rather have ducasse as another blocker, he's thicker and can drive block in the run game.

    I think that the loss of braylon edwards.made a big difference in the jets performance.not only in receiving.but as a blocker.

    you can do whatever you want it's a free country, and I also can chime in

    complainers after a win will probably never be happy. or like being sad, more comfortable with it etc.
