Vet guy that will take snaps away from Zuniga and Huff. Not a fan

If they are good enough I think they will get their snaps they are due. They did very little albeit as rookies to be anointing them anything really.

True but camp reps are limited as is under the new rules and we don't know if we'll have pre-season and coaches have a tendency to play vets over young guys. Most of the times young guys breakout is due to injuries to vets.

To add, as the season where’s on I would expect to see more of Huff and Zuniga. It will be a true timeshare.

I think both you guys I can sum up in one word...coaching. Lots of faith in Saleh and his staff to get this young guys improving and having older vets who have been there and done it is important too.

Thought the same thing when we brought Gore in. That surely Perine would still get more touches. And sure enough Gore was getting 20 touches a game.

Nah completely different. If the young guys aren’t developing or getting any pressure you can rest assured Saleh will lean on his older guys then.
 

If for instance Curry got more snaps and wasn’t doing too good I would hope Saleh would change things. If Curry is getting pressure/sacks though then my god I won’t complain. Just having guys who can rush the passer for once would be a dream!!

Curry is very productive even at 33.  The DL is loaded and we can keep guys fresh.  We may actually have a pass rush now.

Still want us to get another guy though....just having fresh edge rushers who can all get pressure will be such a massive difference from most of our defenses over the last 6/7 years.

I think that's overkill tbh.  I do want Huff and Zuniga to get some reps.

Huff is an undersized URFA and will be competing with OLB's mostly. His game is speed off the edge, Zunega on the other hand has had injury issues dating back over the past 3 years, and while the potential is there the productivity because of injury has limited him. 

That is why he was drafted in the 3rd round, potential, but potential doesn't pay the bills. The Jets have other guy's who had potential upsides and could not beat out FA OL. Blake Cashman is another guy with a great upside, is productive, but gets hurt going back to his college days and is undersized.

Chuma Edoga has been okay, but darn for where he was drafted he has to be considered a bad choice, on the other hand Fatukasi a steal considering where he was drafted in the 6th round was a real find.

I think Huff has more of an upside to Zunega because he has stayed relatively healthy and is much faster than him off the edge. Salah plays a fast D, and Zunega could possibly been traded during the year or let go next year.

Shepherd is another guy to watch as his play has been inconsistent and could be on his last legs, and Phillips is coming off an injury but has shown flashes of being a good player.

Shepherd was drafted in the third round, again a guy who flashed potential but was close to being released before 2020. He played well enough to stick, but he's a guy who has to show out especially if the Jets draft an ER high in the draft at 23.
