New York Jets Flight Connections 7/18/21

  New York Jets Flight Connections 7/18/21 Good morning, Gang Green Nation! And now for something completely different, we get the surreal spectacle of the New York Jets being praised for not one, but two different coaches in two separate articles. I don’t know if I can wrap my brain around that. Sports Illustrated ranks head coach Robert Saleh second among the seven freshman head coaches in the NFL. And Bleacher Report calls Mike LaFleur the Jets’ biggest secret weapon. After the quarterback, the coaches are probably the most important element in a winning football program. Many would argue it’s coaches first, quarterback second.

Before landing with the New York Jets this offseason, linebacker Jarrad Davis said he considered leaving football behind during his final year in Detroit.

I contemplated walking away,” Davis said, via Dennis Waszak Jr. of the Associated Press. “I really did, man. But at the end of the day, like, I wouldn’t have felt right doing something else, you know?”

Davis was being phased out during last season with the Lions. After starting every game he appeared in during his first three seasons in Detroit, Davis made just four starts in 14 games played for the Lions last year.
