The Jets have rock-bottom expectations heading into the season

Miko Grimes is smart, outspoken, profane, and clearly dedicated to her husband, cornerback Brent Grimes. (If you haven’t read Jack Dickey’s profile of the couple for Sports Illustrated, I recommend it.) It’s easy to see why her personality could be off-putting to NFL front offices or fans, but for a league that attempts to tamp down anything resembling a personality, I find her candor refreshing.

And while I don’t doubt the love that she and Brent share, I do suspect that like many other spouses throughout world history Brent occasionally tunes his partner out. Here he is at the beginning of a Miko monologue (Mikologue?), 16 minutes and 6 seconds into the episode:

The camera cuts to some game action of Brent, then back to the couple, where Brent is still staring a thousand yards away, then to more action, then back to Miko talking and Brent is farther away from Earth than any human has traveled. He is hurtling through space with Pioneer 9.

The Jets have rock-bottom expectations heading into the season, and things could get truly ugly if Christian Hackenberg doesn’t show any signs of progress. Last year’s second-round pick should see plenty of snaps in the preseason opener against the Titans, if only because Josh McCown is an aging veteran and Bryce Petty is firmly at No. 3 on the depth chart. If it’s anything like Hackenberg’s training camp performances, we could be in for a bumpy ride.

The Titans, on the other hand, have a legit franchise QB in Marcus Mariota, who will get the start but only play a handful of snaps. Mariota is fully recovered from the broken leg that ended his 2016 season early, but Tennessee is wisely playing it safe with his health. The bigger injury concern is first-round rookie Corey Davis, who is week to week with a pulled hamstring.
