Giants v. Jets: Interrogating the Enemy

This is the first installment of a year long series where we ask writers from the opposing teams 5 questions.  They have also asked us 5 questions and the link to that post will appear later.  We here at FanSided are fortunate enough to have an editor and writing staff for all 32 teams.  Here is the interrogation of Alan Shechter of The Jet Press

Q. With so many injuries to your WR corps, is there talk of signing anyone else, and who will be active Saturday night?

A. Amazingly enough, there has been no real talk about signing anybody.  Frankly, it’s shocking.  There is a rumor
that keeps popping up about the Jets trading for Percy Harvin, but I don’t think the Jets will be able to pull it off.   Actives for Saturday should be Stephen Hill, Patrick Turner,
Jeremy Kerley, Eron Riley, and Jordan White.

Q. Will the Jets run The Wildcat exclusively in the second half with Tebow to get some practice, or are they thinking of keeping it under wraps?

A. The Jets have been so secretive about the Wildcat, it’s amazing. They didn’t even begin to work on it until a closed practice.  They haven’t said much about the plan for Saturday, but my hunch is we will see very little of it, if any at all.

Q.What do you think is the biggest area of improvement needed for theJets?

A. Offensive line.  Nothing about the Jets, and their plans for 2012 will go forward if the line doesn’t get better.  Everything falls apart when the line falls apart, it has to improve, starting Saturday night.

Q. What position battles are you most excited to see?

One oddball position is kicker, which has been almost a dead heat between Josh Brown and Nick Folk. Another one I think all Jets
fans are watching is the battle at right tackle.  The other big question is who is going to step up as the number two running back behind Shonn Greene.

Q. Any no names we might be surprised with Saturday night?

With Sione Pouha out especially, watch for a defensive lineman named Damon Harrison.  He is an undrafted free agent nose tackle
from William and Penn University, and he is huge.  He only played a portion of the fourth quarter last week, but nobody could block him.  This should be a big week for him.  Another guy to watch for is a cornerback named Ellis Lankster, who has had a big camp.
