Calvin Pace Out 6 Weeks

According to Manish's twitter:

BREAKING: #Jets Calvin Pace out about 6 weeks with broken right foot, according to source. Big blow for #NYJ. #nfl

This is a big blow for the Jets, it will mean Pace will miss the home opener against Baltimore, the home game against the Patriots, the away trip to Miami as well as the away trip to Buffalo. He could return for the home game against the Vikings, or the week 6 trip to Denver.

This leaves a big hole for the Jets that needs to be filled by Jason Taylor. I have faith in Taylor doing a job, but now do we start thinking about Adalius Thomas? who enjoyed an 11 sack season under Rex Ryan. Or do you believe that Jason Taylor can adequately fill in until Calvin returns.

Either way, losing a player like Pace is not the way we wanted to start the year.
