Good morning, Jets fans! I hope you’re all having a great start to the day. Newly acquired Center Ryan Kalil will be making his debut for the Green and White in the upcoming preseason game against the New Orleans Saints, and he couldn’t be more excited. Though the playbook still has him performing baby steps, I’m assuming it’s only a matter of time before he gets it down completely. One person who disagrees with Kalil getting any playing time is beat writer Matt Stypulkoski, who after the loss of Avery Williamson conveniently thinks anyone who is a starter playing in the preseason is a big mistake from HC Adam Gase. This type of fickle journalism is doing its job by getting me to talk about it, but presuming that everyone will get hurt if they play a snap in the preseason is honestly just an incredibly horrible take. If you were wondering, I don’t think playing Avery Williamson with the backups was a bad idea by Gase. In all honesty he was getting picked on and beat all night, and got beat once again on the play he got hurt. This could honestly be a blessing in disguise for the team if his replacement can hold his own in coverage duties. With that said, here are your links to the Jets this Tuesday.
