The NFL draft is a science that has more luck than team’s admit. For every Ryan Leaf, JaMarcus Russel and Tim Couch that did not work out in the first round, there is a Tom Brady, Shannon Sharpe and Dak Prescott all who made it through at least the third round without hearing their…

   A number of years ago I was at the Jets facility at Florham Park, NJ attending one of their open practices. When the Jets team broke into position play, I gravitated to watch the offensive linemen. I normally do this because of my experience playing the position and because this group was closest to…

   In sports, too many times we see elite athletes who were never able to fulfill their potential because of injuries, drugs and other factors. Chad Pennington was one of my favorite all time Jets who could have been better if not for the injuries he suffered, one on top of another.    He was…

 When you think of Jets defensive linemen of the past and sacks, Mark Gastineau, Joe Klecko and John Abraham are probably the first ones that come to mind for long time Jets fans.

Before Darrelle Revis, Aaron Glenn and Antonio Cromartie, there was a Jets  player who played both cornerback and safety, who had a nose for the interception. Bill Baird only started 80 games in his Jets career (playing 98 total games) but had 34 interceptions, two of which were returned for touchdowns. His 34 is still…

  Two players dropped out of my top 51 prospects list, quarterback Sam Howell and cornerback Deion Kendrick. Listening to Chris Simms, I drank some of his Kool Aid with his wide receiver rankings, though I don’t think the two Buckeyes (Wilson & Olave) are as overrated as he thinks. I moved Travon Walker up based…

  As football fans we always talk about players who take plays, quarters and even games off. We speak to our friends and one of us always says something like: “These NFL players have it so good making all that money. They don’t appreciate what they have and I don’t want to hear any complaints…
