Jets to use a committee approach at tailback

Matt Forte? No.

Bilal Powell? Nope.

Elijah McGuire? Not McHappening.

The Jets will be using a three-man rotation at tailback. Via Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, offensive coordinator John Morton said the Jets will use a three-man committee at the position.

This means that, barring injury or an in-game decision to ride a hot hand, none will generate much by way of production. Which means that anyone playing football of the fantasy variety should steer clear of the Jets.

More accurately, it’s another reason to steer clear of the Jets.

  1. In other news, the sky is blue.

    Anybody who follows the Jets at all knows that Forte hasn’t been producing, Bilal is not a workhorse, and probably best as a 3rd down RB, and McGuire is almost completely unproven. I hate that Manish Mehta’s reporting is considered news. He literally just reports things that people either already know, or reports things that are implied, and refuses to ever name a source. I think he just makes up half of the stuff he reports and hopes that it’s true. The Jets need a new beat writer.

  2. Imagine being Matt Forte. Playing for an under achieving Bears team for your whole career. Getting cut loose and being able to choose any team in the league. And he turns down the Patriots to sign with the Jets. The Pats have 2 rings since then, and Forte has a few extra $million and about 30 more losses. Classic

  3. Imagine being Matt Forte.
    Playing for an underachieving Bears team for your whole career.
    Getting cut loose and being able to choose any team in the league.
    Forte, in a move of class and sportsmanship, turns down the cheating Patriots to sign with the terrible, underachieving Jets.
    The Pats are a classless organization and Forte can sleep well at night.

  4. The Jets had a coach instruct players to try to trip and injure any opponents who ran near their sideline during punts. If they put half the effort into winning that they do into keystone cop chicanery and tanking, they might actually be decent.

    How come Jacoby Brissett hasn’t spilled the beans about all that NE cheating now that he’s on Indy? Why hasn’t Martellus Bennett done interviews in GB about all that ball deflation back in Foxboro? How come Jamie Collins hasn’t come clean about all that taping and espionage after getting shipped off to Cleveland? How come William Gay hasn’t told all his Steeler teammates about how the Patriots messed with in game communications during his Patriots tenure?

  6. Actually there is a good reason to pay attention to the Jets, so you can use whatever D they are playing against.
