Bradway Says Expectations Were Too High

Jets' GM Terry Bradway said on his weekly radio show that the expectations for his team going into the season might have been too high.

"We beat Carolina by one, Indianapolis by one, and Cincinnati by one and made the playoffs off a 53-yard field goal on a bad snap," Bradway said.


Bradway's point was that last year's 10-6 record might have been a little misleading, but it seams a peculiar thing for a GM to say about his own team.

It looks like the Jets stole a good prospect from the Giants in wide receiver Jonathan Carter. The Jets claimed him off waivers last week. The Giants were trying to sneak him through waivers and eventually bring him back. However, the Jets have always liked this kid and jumped on the opportunity to claim him. Watching him in practice, he's every bit as fast as Santana Moss.

One silver lining to the bye-week was it allowed the Jets to get healthy. Mo Lewis (hip pointer), Steve White (ankle) and Wayne Chrebet (knee) all returned to practice Monday after healing last week, and all three should return to action this Sunday.

Speaking of White, it was surprising to hear Herman Edwards praise him on Monday. When asked how White was playing prior to his injury in Jacksonville, Edwards said,


"He was playing well.  He was consistent.  Steve is a try-hard guy.  He is a motor guy."

Most Jets observers haven't seen White do much yet.

With Santana Moss coming off the best game of his career, the Jets are going to use a three-man rotation with Moss, Wayne Chrebet and Laveranues Coles playing an equal amount. Of course all three will be on the field together on third down situations. Edwards refuses to allow the media to make an issue out of which two are going to start.

The Jets passing offense should be able to get a lot done this week against a Viking secondary that might be worse than Kansas City's. The Jets can pick their poison. They can go after either one of the Vikings cornerbacks Tyrone Carter or Corey Chavous, and get a lot done.


In a surprising move, the Jets waived backup DT Giradie Mercer today, and moved QB Todd Husak from the practice squad to the active roster. Mercer was starting to get more playing time with DT Larry Webster struggling and DT James Reed banged up.
