New York Jets: Star Players for 2014

Quarterback: Geno Smith

Geno Smith was drafted by the New York Jets in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft. He made his professional debut in a preseason match against Detroit and was later named the team's starting QB in September due to Mark Sanchez suffering a shoulder injury in preseason and being placed on injury reserve. It was later announced he would miss the entire season. In week 3 Smith became the first rookie quarterback in franchise history to throw for 300 or more yards in a game. During his rookie year in 2013, Smith finished the season with 3,046 passing yards, 21 interceptions, and 366 rushing yards. The Jets finished 8-8 (tied 2nd in AFC East), a two game improvement over the prior season. It’s uncertain how big a role Smith will play with Sanchez's return in 2014, but he is clearly a well fit with the team.

Offensive Star: Chris Ivory

Chris Ivory is a running back for the jets who was signed as an undrafted free agent by the New Orleans Saints in 2010. He had an impressive performance in training camp and preseason games, highlighted by a strong performance against the San Diego Chargers that included a 76-yard touchdown on a swing pass. He earned both Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week and FedEx Ground Player of the Week awards during his rookie season. Ivory was traded to the New York Jets in April 2013 during the NFL during for the Jet's fourth round pick (106th overall). His first season with the Jets saw him lead in overall rushing with 182 rushes for 833 yards.

Defensive Star: David Harris

David Harris was taken in the second round of the 2007 NFL Draft by the Jets, following an impressive run at college powerhouse Michigan. Despite a brief lapse of form in 2012, Harris is a former Pro Bowler and in his day, one of the best linebackers in the entire NFL. Nicknamed The Hitman by Jets fans and media for his dominant play and hard-hitting tackles, Harris will need to dig deep in 2014 if the Jets are any hope of turning around the form that has seen this miss the playoffs for the past few seasons.

Head Coach: Rex Ryan

Rex Ryan began his NFL coaching career as the defensive line coach of the Arizona Cardinals in 1994. He moved to the Baltimore Ravens in 1999 and was promoted to defensive coordinator in 2005. Ryan turned the Ravens into a defensive force, with the Ravens never finishing outside the top five defenses in the NFL under Ryan's leadership. Ryan was named as head coach of the New York Jets in 2009 and led the side to the AFC Championship game in his first two seasons in charge. Ryan has become well known for his outspoken and confident attitude. Ryan has a big job ahead of him in 2014 and must reunite the Jets fractured locker room if they are to return to the playoffs in 2014.
