Eric Allen On Offense

NY Jets Helmet

Eric Allen from NY Jets.com took some fan questions today, here is what Eric thinks about the Jets offense as they prepare to head into training camp on July 25th.

Q: Does Brian Winters have a shot at starting the season at left guard?
EA: Winters definitely has a shot at starting, but I think his percentages might be better actually at right guard.  The Jets feel great about former Steeler Willie Colon. If Colon’s body can hold up for 16 games (he finished the past three seasons on injured reserve), the Jets will have a major steal.

Q: Oh my!  Do the Jets have enough cap space to bid on QB Matt Ryan should his contract talks fall through and he hits FA?
EA: Not happening.  (JN note: If you think this is going to happen you must be feeling lucky so you should play slots online for real money).

Q: Are the Jets receivers going to be ready for a full season of Jets football? In order for us to have any chance to compete for the Lombardi Trophy, we have to have them step up to the next level of play and stay there all season long.
EA: In a word, the Jets receivers had an underwhelming minicamp. Rex Ryan was none too happy with the drops and he had every right to be agitated.

Q: How come we don’t hear much about Greg McElroy in the QB competition? Has he been weeded out already?
EA: The competition mantra isn’t going away, but you just have to follow the reps.  Geno Smith and Mark Sanchez are the only two players receiving the reps with the starting unit.
