On the money baby. Ryan is another offensive weapon for the QB challenged Jets.

I don't know, but Thomas and Leon are no slouches.Lets go after a QB that does not throw like a girl, and can hit the broad side of a barn. Poor Chd with his wounded shoulder and KC who must need glasses.

Ryan.....yep Jets need a QB , sure there is a risk factor....no pain no gain.

Holy Smokes....gee wiz...hey Jets already have 2 small DE's getting 40 mil and moved to OLB......Why draft Long or Ghloston when they just duplicate what we already paid for.

MacDaddy has off field issues....give me a QB that can throw the damn ball downfield. Hey why you're at it how about a WR that about 6'2",runs a 4.4 40 and has soft hands?

Dear Johnette,

Just a compliment to your outstanding writing. You actually know the difference between "who" and "whom," and you are one of the few anymore who knows that it's "featured back" not "feature back." And you are a sports writer--even more rare. Keep up the good work; the content of what you write is as good as the style.

Do you write a blog anywhere?

HEY JET BRAINS, YOU NEED A QUARTERBACK, A QUARTERBACK. SOMEONE WITH AN ARM WHO CAN THROW A GOOD DEEP BALL AND STRETCH A DEFENSE. IF THE OTHER TEAMS STACK THE FRONT SEVEN WITH NO FEAR THAT THE QUARTERBACK CAN BEAT THEM DEEP, DOESN'T MATTER WHO DOES THE RUNNING. THERE IS NO ROOM TO RUN. FOR THAT MATTER TEAM NEEDS SPEED AT WIDE RECEIVER. BADLY. OR DO WE HAVE TO SPEND ANOTHER SEASON WATCHNG PENINGTON THROW 5 YARD PASSES WITH NO ABILITY TO STRIKE ONTO THE OTHER TEAMS REDZONE. HAVE PITY ON US. GIVE US SOMETHING TO CHEER ABOUT.

Leon was a great kickoff return man, but a lousy punt return man. Otherwise I completely agree with your article!! Go Jets!

Hey Andrew C,

Do you watch college football? Matt Ryan's conference, the ACC, is one of the weakest in the country. Ask most avid college football fans and they will tell you that Ryan isn't even the best QB on the board. Brohm from Louisville can pick teams apart, even with the horrendous line he had.

Please Jets, don't crash on this one. Ryan is a second round pick.

Jet insiders say everybody will be fooled when the 1st pick is LeGren Wickramasenghe the OT out of New Mexico U.
Can't miss product and he's no longer paying alimony after the altercation.

OK MEN, ITS DRAFT DAY. JETS NEED A QUARTERBACK, A QUARTERBACK. IT ALWAYS STARTS WITH A QUARTERBACK. I DON'T THINK JET FANS COULD STAND ANOTHER YEAR OF PENNINGTON THROWING DUCKS IN THE RED ZONE AGAIN. FOR THAT MATTER, WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME THE JETS HAD A RECEIVER ANYONE FEARED? SO MANY NEEDS SO FEW PICKS. DON'T BLOW IT AGAIN.

I'm sorry, I just don't get all the name games. Meg Ryan, band leader....I'm not really getting the point here.
