The countdown starts


The countdown officially begins to the start of the regular season.

I’m sitting in the press box looking at the first official Jets depth chart. It lists Kellen Clemens as the starting QB, no surprise, but it also lists WR Huey Whittaker, who was cut two days ago so you can’t read that much into them.

Right now Jay Feely is testing out the uprights at the Meadowlands.

UPDATE: Stanley Daniels, Robert Turner, Wayne Hunter and Jehuu Caulcrick replace Alan Faneca, Nick Mangold, Damien Woody and Tony Richardson, respectively.

Dwight Lowery and Sione Poucha replace Darrelle Revis and Kris Jenkins.

For the Rams, Keenan Burton replaces Donnie Avery.

    Lowery replaces Revis, but you wonder if Sheppard takes the Rams Number One receiver. With Avery out that could be Robinson, we will see. Kindly note, Lowery changed his number from 34 last year to 21 this year.
    Green 95 versus Pouha 91, I’m going with Sione…

    Not very happy with the crowd. Especially since we are unvailing our #1 pick QB. OL is letting too many DL in our backfield. Jet D looks pretty good. Harris with a sack, but Leonard made it happen. Feeley is gold. Just watching Sanchez stretching and I pulled a hamstring LOL. Pace..Sack #2 tonight.

  4. Joe b

    Clowney with 3 big catches. However I am not impressed. 2 were against backups and he really didn’t get separation on the first pass from Sanchez. . He has to be more aggressive against starters. He still only has 1 regular season reception. He is going to have to prove me wrong.

    Of course yout right on the offensive line, Hunter missed a block that got Clemens clobbered and lost the ball, and Stanley Daniels almost got Clemens killed by whiffing on a block.
    As you know I am a huge critic of Clowney, he can’t play specials, he doesn’t block, he runs poor routes, gives up on routes but what he can do is run a “GO” route. As silly as that sounds, that may be enough, because it gives this offense a vertical presence. We are no longer in the Pennington era, arm strength is not an issue with any of the three QB’s. I have faith that Henry Ellard can develop David into a complete receiver, for now , Clowney is a one trick pony, but oh what a trick. As Mangini always says “its a process”.
    Once again the Jets will keep Six Wide Receivers, my list as of tonight.
    1. Cotchery
    2. Stuckey
    3. Wallace Wright
    4. David Clowney
    5. Brad Smith
    6. Britt Davis
    Joe, Kareem Brown was okay at TE..

  6. David

    Hmmm, so I guess Clowney made a little noise tonight, eh? He hasn’t made much noise in practice, but maybe he is showing his worth as a gamer. Just a thought….
