Even though hardly any Jets players who will be starting at the kickoff of the regular season played in last night’s pre-season game, there was still crucial matters on the line.  Positional battles were given their final out of practice efforts, players on the bubble proved their respective worth for the final time, and some won and lost playing time.  So, it’s essential that we take a deeper look at who showed up when it mattered most.

Here’s a pre-season finale edition of “The Great, Good, Bad, and Ugly.”  Also, if you’re looking for more game recap work, check out my raw notes from the first watch-through last night.

Let’s take a look at how things turned out the way they did and why the game had a lot more positives than the headlines would suggest.

There are still a lot of questions that need to be answered before final cut day, but here is my first attempt at predicting how the Jets’ final 53-man roster will look like.

Some of the biggest questions are at running back and receiver where the status of Mike Goodson and Santoino Holmes are very much up in the air. As a result, some spots may open up if either player starts on PUP or in Goodson’s case, possibly even released.

The offensive line is under a major transition period with two new guards and a second-year right tackle. John Idzik used three draft picks to address the position and stock it with depth—something the previous administration failed to properly do. Now, there is more competition at every single spot, which will ultimately lead to a lot of change.

Let’s take a look at how the offensive line with shape out throughout the next month.
