Good morning, Gang Green Gangsters! Am I just me, or does it seem like the New York Jets seemed to focus on versatile players this year?
New York Times: The Jets answer one question with Geno Smith, but others remain.
Conor Orr: The Jets invested a lot of time in getting to know Smith before drafting him.
Steve Serby: Geno's got next but don't expect his best.
Daily News: Smith had talents for acting, writing and painting before football.
New York Post: His backers were laughing when a writer criticized Smith as not being a student of the game.
Bob Glauber: The Jets made all the right moves to salvage the franchise. It can be a risky business, as your picks could end up legend or fade into oblivion.
Rich Cimini: Account by account, John Idzik is settling all of the Jets's family business.
Mike Lupica: Idzik was right to draft Smith.
Mike Florio: Trying to make sense of the Smith pick.
Brian Costello: Rex Ryan feels the need to compare his playoff record to the New England Patriots'.
Jason Cole: Ryan was among the winners, regardless of whether Smith can play.
Kimberley A. Martin: The roster still has glaring holes.
Manish Mehta: The Jets don't look any better on paper than they did a few days ago. Correction: They don't look any better on your paper, Manish.
Gary Myers: Mark Sanchez is no longer the franchise quarterback.
Conor Orr: Marty Morninwheg says, "Mark knows what I think about him." Oh snap.
Randy Lange: DeMario Davis and Stephen Hill will be on the silver screen.
NFL.com: Chris Ivory and the Jets agree to a $10 million contract. This could be more than a safeguard, as he could provide some zest to the team. This is a dove tail fit, I think.
M Live: Will Campbell was a little surprised when the Jets told him they wanted a workout on the offensive line.
Morning Call: Lehigh's Ryan Spadola said it's not the first time he'll be able to prove people wrong.
National Football Post: Scouting report on Mike Edwards.
Daily Record: Gang Green hosted its annual Draft Family Fun Day yesterday.
Over the Cap: The importance of planning for the undrafted free agent.
Miami Herald: Stephen Ross says that Tony Sparano damaged the Miami Dolphins.
New York Times: Matt Barkley stayed at USC and paid.
Here is what I've noticed about our new GM's name recently:
Can we still call him the Wizard of Id(zik) then?
