Stuckey Apparently Wins Starting Job

New, comments

Rex Ryan hinted that Chansi Stuckey is his starter opposite Jerricho Cotchery.

Chansi Stuckey appears to have locked up the team's No. 2 wide reciever spot opposite Jerricho Cotchery after his 4-catch, 69-yard performance against the Giants last week.

"I think it's still a position that's still by committee," Ryan said. "But I think he's the guy you throw out there first."

I know a lot of people say Stuckey is the perfect slot guy, but this won't prevent him from lining up there in three receiver sets. It just means he'll also play across from Cotchery in two wideout formations.

I still hope we see plenty of David Clowney on the field. It's been a while since the Jets had a guy who can stretch the field. It's not entirely clear how complete of a receiver David is. How refined is he as a route runner? It doesn't matter a ton. Just send him deep all the time to keep the safeties back and open room underneath for Cotchery and Dustin Keller.
