    I don't watch college much, so I can't speak for Austin. But the way some of you are talking about him it reminds me of Reggie Bush. (I know it's RB vs. WR, but the "explosive" comments seem the same).

    Bush is a decent player, but not the game-changer many thought he would be. Any reason to think Austin would do better?

    it's clear the jets are in full rebuilding mode. and they won't be a real threat until they upgrade the qb position. but even die hard, long time fans are losing patience with this organization. not merely because they stink, but because the product on the field is so boring. idzik faces numerous hurdles, one of which is fielding a reasonably entertaining product to entice people to come see the team. last year's offense was unwatchable. there was noone who was enjoyable to watch on offense except kerley. this must change. at some point the jets are going to have to invest first rounders on offensive skill positions.
    Agreed. Well said.
