Jane McManus of The Journal News on the Jets.

It’s still on


You may have noticed that the forecast for this afternoon and evening is pretty wet in the Tri-State region, but the Jets are planning to hold practice today at the Hofstra campus on Long Island rain or shine. A team spokesperson said the only thing that would cancel the 5:45 Family Night practice is if there is lightning in the area.

I’ll update this post if that changes.

Some notable Jets will not play in Friday’s preseason game against the Rams, including NT Kris Jenkins, DB Darelle Revis, OL Nick Mangold, OL Damien Woody and FB Tony Richardson.

Rich Cimini of the Daily News reports today that the Jets have upped their offer to RB Leon Washington to a respectable $4.5 million.

Also, David Zurawik of the Baltimore Sun raises some excellent questions about the choice of James Brown to conduct the Michael Vick interview for 60 Minutes. Brown has never done a report for the news program before, and a CBS spokesperson said it was because Brown was able to score the sitdown with Vick on his own.

Could Vick have agreed to Brown’s request because he hoped for a more sympathetic ear? I’m not sure that the reporter closest to an athlete is able to conduct the best interview, and Ed Bradley’s cozy chat with Tiger Woods two years ago proved that. We’ll have to wait until Sunday to see if Brown’s interview with Vick falls into the same trap.

    So THAT’s why AP was not allowed in that first speech he gave last week – 60 Minutes wanted the exclusive. Clever chaps them CBS kids are. I don’t think James Brown should have done the interview – Steve Kroft or Scott Pelley would have been much better. Heck, even Byron Pitts would have been better. We shall see.

    My guy WR Huey Whittaker got cut, he was my secret receiver, wrong again. It seems I always root for the big Receivers looking for the next Al Toon, the last guy was Chas Gessner, when will I ever learn.
    This cut is good news for 6’4 Marcus Henry and the 6’3 Britt Davis. Henry was the second best receiver in Mondays practice, Davis an UNDFA, is so good, I don’t think the Jets can stash him on the practice squad. Watch Henry Number 14 and Davis Number 17 on Friday, be prepared to get excited…GO JETS
