Title: New York Jets

Jets hire Brian Schottenheimer, formerly SD's QB coach (and son of coach Marty Schottenheimer) to become the new offensive coordinator, replacing Mike Heimerdingdong.
Heimerdinger became an assistant coach in Denver, and Denver's OL coach was promoted to coordinator.

Offense for the Jets won't change much, but them bringing in a QB coach to be the OC probably means they are starting to really lean towards Cutler. Also would expect the Jets to bring in a real blocking FB (to play Lorenzo Neal's role)...possibly Andrew Pinnock (RFA).

Scottenheimer is 32, BTW, making him even younger than Mangini (35). Maybe that played a part in it. Or maybe Mangini knows him because they're both young coaches.

If you are going to rebuild, at least they are doing it with young coaches.

I found this on jetsinsider:http://media.putfile.com/ESPN-ON-PENNINGTON-21406
A few short clips of ESPN guys about the Pennington situation.
Sid - February 22, 2006 07:46 PM (GMT)
Law, Fabini, Sowell, Fiedler, Legree, and others were released.
Martin's contract was restructured.
Jets scrambling to get under the cap. They have to deal Abraham.

Damn, just posted this in the NFL section.

Nice find. Typical sports media, putting the hype before the proof in order to sell rags. :D
Should be interesting to see what Mangini can do with the Jets. Will be very interesting to see if they take D'Brick if he is there, go for a QB (Cutler or if one of the top two QB's drops), or trade down.

Wasn't Pennington's agent just hardlining the Jets saying that he wouldn't renegotiate his contract? Now Pennington seems Pennitent. Maybe it's all the love they've been showing Cutler or that fact that Leinhart and Young are within reach. Whatever it is I find it kind of sad that you can't decide how you want it. FA or restructure for the team. You can't just hope the Jets will swallow your cap number (isn't it 8mil right now?) and let you keep starting.
SkinsandTerps - March 2, 2006 08:15 PM (GMT)
Chad Pennington has made 22M over his last 18 games.
And he wont take a pay cut ? Unreal.

So after the Ramsey trade, it looks like the Jets are keeping busy. They appear to be close to a deal with Atlanta, which would send John Abraham to the Falcons.
Sid - March 17, 2006 09:22 PM (GMT)
Check out the Falcons home page:http://www.atlantafalcons.com/default.jsp
They have a picture of Abraham chasing Mexico. Pretty ironic. I'm guessing it was intentional, even though no official deal was announced.
Sid - March 17, 2006 10:45 PM (GMT)
and Ramsey could be heading to Atlanta as part of the Abraham/Schaub deal.
Atlanta or Seattle for Abraham? I'm thinking atlanta
Sid - March 19, 2006 04:10 AM (GMT)
Still nothing about Abraham.
Found this interesting:
2005 Scouting Report - Scouts Inc.
Grade: 65 | Key
Comment:Shows good top-end speed, is capable of getting outside the pocket and flashes the ability to make accurate throws on the run. Has adequate awareness and flashes the ability to step up when pocket starts to collapse around him. Possesses adequate ball skills, shows a good pump fake and does a decent job of selling play action. Plays with confidence, doesn't dwell on mistakes and is a leader on the field. Lacks great lateral mobility and doesn't excel at buying second chances in the pocket. Lacks the elusiveness to make defenders miss, doesn't show a second gear once in space and isn't a dangerous open field runner. However, he has the release, touch and accuracy to develop into an excellent backup once he cuts down on his mistakes, which should happen once he gets more comfortable with the offense.
2005 Scouting Report - Scouts Inc.
Grade: 68 | Key
Comment:Ramsey has good overall athletic ability. He has above average speed and good quickness. He is not a scrambler that is going to kill you with his feet. He has limited lateral movement but will stand tall in the pocket when under fire. He is accurate on short to medium range passes and he has good arm strength. He has a tendency to throw behind the receiver and overthrows the long ball. He does not have the good pocket presence and has the ?happy feet? when he setting up. He failed to secure the football and had some fumbling problems. He has not shown a consistent ability to handle the blitz. He did a poor job of reading his hot receivers. Blitz recognition seems to be a problem.
2005 Scouting Report - Scouts Inc.
Grade: 77 | Key
Comment:He rarely muffs a snap or hand-off and he does an excellent job of selling his play-action fakes. Is at his best when working off of the play-fake on bootlegs and roll-outs. Throws well on the move. Does a good job of getting the ball up and out of his hand quickly in the short-passing game. The biggest knock on Pennington, however, is his marginal arm strength. He struggles to drive the ball downfield in the vertical passing game. He can't fit the ball into a lot of tight spots that the majority of NFL starters can. His accuracy and consistency on the deep ball is below average. One of the reasons that he's more comfortable working outside the pocket is because it shortens the field for him. He struggles to get great zip on the deep out route. Shoulder surgery is reason for even more concern regarding his arm strength.

|Robertson, Vilma two big reasons why Jets’ switch to 3-4 scheme may take time |
We hear that while head coach Eric Mangini’s goal is to steer the Jets’ defense toward a 3-4 scheme, it will likely have to be a gradual adjustment due to the fact that the Jets simply don’t have the proper personnel to fit a true 3-4 alignment at this time. Two interesting cases are 2003 first-round pick DT Dewayne Robertson and ’04 first-round pick LB Jonathan Vilma, the cornerstones of the team’s defense. While 3-4 nose tackles are required to control two gaps and hold up blockers at the line of scrimmage, Robertson is more of a one-gap, upfield guy who likes to pressure the quarterback. When asked to man two gaps as a rookie, he really struggled. Vilma’s speed and intelligence make him special, but he lacks the size of a prototypical 3-4 inside ’backer who is expected to fill gaps and take on 300-pound guards. Look for Mangini to design a defense that maximizes Robertson’s and Vilma’s skills and doesn’t ask them to regularly fill traditional 3-4 roles, which means the Jets could employ more 4-3 looks. Expect Mangini to continue collecting more big bodies for the front seven through the draft and free agency.

Here's what I'm hearing about the top of the draft:
If Mario is there, the Jets will take him. However, if Mario isn't there, and they have a choice between Ferguson and Leinart, they'll take D'Brickashaw.
Sid - April 30, 2006 02:54 AM (GMT)
Looks like my source was good on that one.
Anyway, I was happy with Brick and Mangold in the 1st, but not with Clemens at the top of the 2nd. I would've been happy had they stayed put and taken White.
Also, instead of dropping down with the Eagles for a 7th rounder and taking Schlegel, I would've taken Gocong myself, or taken Croyle (would've been happier with Croyle in the 3rd instead of Clemens in the 2nd).
Finally, I would have taken Bing with the comp pick.

|Will ( Columbus, Ohio): I have heard a lot about Ohio State's linebackers AJ Hawk and Bobby Carpenter, is the third linebacker from Ohio State Anthony Schlegel going to be even drafted? |
SportsNation Mel Kiper: Schlegel is probably a 5-7 round possibility. He's probably a backup in the NFL.
Sid - July 28, 2006 02:54 AM (GMT)
Trey Teague, Justin McCareins, and Curtis Martin put on PUP list.
Sid - August 7, 2006 07:18 PM (GMT)
news has now come out that Curtis Martin told the Jets to draft a RB, because of his uncertainty about his future.
UncleNeonLeon - August 9, 2006 03:17 PM (GMT)
Word is the Jets are interested in trading for San Diego's Michael Turner. I don't see that happening. LT was banged up last year and Turner is a quality backup.
Luke Paul Chandler - August 9, 2006 03:49 PM (GMT)
The Jets are supposed to be in the mix for Chris Brown also, but Turner's a much better option because Chris Brown is perpetually hurt. Plus the Chargers know Turner isn't staying in SD after this year, so they might as well get something for him.
Matt Shumate - August 9, 2006 05:20 PM (GMT)
... and they're also supposedly looking at Marcel Shipp.
Luke Paul Chandler - August 9, 2006 06:08 PM (GMT)
Might as well just give them the Lombardi Trophy for looking at a gamebreaker like Shipp! What did he average? A bustling 3.1 YPC?
Shumate's Daddy - August 16, 2006 05:17 PM (GMT)
TJ Duckett is now on the menu as well as Grady Jackson.

Completely scrap that with Sproles done for the year. The Jets are in a bad spot with having 4-way battles at QB and RB...they can't just throw or run the ball all game in the preseason, they have to mix it up and hope they pick the right guys from a very small sample.

What do you Jets fans think of Brad Smith? I hear he had 3 special teams tackles in 1 quarter last week. Is he the real deal or what?
