Good morning Gang Green Nation! The New York Jets open their 2022 campaign tomorrow against the Baltimore Ravens. The offensive line and quarterback positions for the Jets, unfortunately, are in less than ideal shape going into the season. Zach Wilson will miss at least the first three games of the season, forcing 37 year old Joe Flacco into the starting lineup. Mekhi Becton is out for the year with a career threatening knee injury, which forced the Jets to go out and sign 37 year old offensive tackle Duane Brown. George Fant was moved from left tackle to right tackle to accommodate Brown. Now Brown is out with a shoulder injury that could land him on the injured reserve list, and Fant is switching back to left tackle as the Jets prepare to give rookie Max Mitchell the start at right tackle. Mitchell came out with an unfortunate quote that six time Pro Bowl defensive lineman Calais Campbell, Mitchell’s primary responsibility on Sunday, is “just another dude.” I don’t think any disrespect was intended, but nothing like giving your opponent extra motivation in your first NFL game. Such is the dizzying chaos currently taking shape in the Jets’ offense ahead of the season opener. It will be surprising if the Jets offense isn’t taken to the woodshed by a revamped and potentially very good Ravens defense tomorrow. Tough way to start a season.
