A lot of random tidbits coming out of Florham Park today as the Jets try to get in as much last-minute preparation as possible before they travel to Pittsburgh.
Unfortunately, I wasn't present at the facility. Lucky for us, NYDN's Manish Mehta was, and he provided some news bits via Twitter I wanted to pass on to you all.
Miscommunication in the secondary will continue to be a big issue. I have a problem with Brodney Pool calling the plays in the secondary. He may be a veteran, but he has less than one year in DC Mike Pettine's system. At the same time, there are no better candidates with Eric Smith ailing, as the young Dwight Lowery has not shown the ability to make good reads, and he's also making the switch from CB. Let's not pile everything on his plate.
- We miss Jim Leonhard. A lot.
#Jets Eric Smith is officially out for Sunday. -hedigbo and Pryce didn't practice. Revis was limited with hammy. #nfl
#Jets Dwight Lowery will start at safety in place of Smith. Pool or him will make calls in secondary. #nfl #nyj
Rex Ryan believes Ihedigbo will play vs. Steelers. And Revis too. He;s uncertain about Pryce. #jets
