Coordinators' Corner: Week 1

Posted Sep 5, 2014

Three Jets Coaches Field Reporters' Questions as Opening Day Rapidly Approaches

It's the first week before the first game of the season, and so our three coordinators addressed reporters' questions for the first time with a game that counts in the standings directly ahead. The news conferences were held Thursday and here are some excerpts from each coordinators' comments plus the link to that video.

DC Dennis Thurman on how Antonio Allen has looked this week at cornerback...

 

The thing that he has, he’s athletic, he’s long, he’s rangy, he has excellent ball skills. He’s got to learn to do things a certain way that are a little bit different than playing as a safety inside. You’re not confronted with the 1-on-1 matchup all the time and so that will take some getting used to. But we feel like he has the ability to do it. He’s got to go out and do what we’re asking him to do technically and fundamentally. If he does that, he has a chance to be very successful.


OC Marty Mornhinweg on if it will be a challenge to keep all three running backs, Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell, happy…

 

Well, we’re not concerned about that. We’ve got that old-school mentality. Every game’s different. All of them will help us throughout the year with that old-school mentality of “We don’t care how we get it done, who scores, who gets the credit,” all those things. And then those type of things work. I’ve had some experience with three backs in the past and it has worked beautifully. So we’ll see how that goes.


STC Thomas McGaughey on if he is reluctant to use Jeremy Kerley for punt returns due to his offensive significance…

 

You have to understand this about me. I don’t devalue what I do. When you say significance, I think special teams, offense and defense, each is that same thing. Ask Deion Sanders. He was pretty good as a punt returner and a game changer that way. So when you say that, I don’t really devalue that part of the game. That’s part of playing football. The teams that have great returners and guys that are great offensive players and defensive players, that’s just part of what they do and who they are. That part of it, I don’t ever worry about this guy’s role on special teams this way, and that guy’s role, when it comes to offense and defense and special teams. To me it’s just playing football.
