Why not use Marquice Cole? Dan Leberfeld

I still don’t get why the Jets don’t play cornerback Marquice Cole more?

He can help them.

But you know it’s hard to think outside the box.

They picked Kyle Wilson in the first round, so he needs to play a lot.

That is just how it works.

What if Cole is better, right now, based on his experience?

It doesn’t matter. You get picked in the first round, you play.

I think Wilson has special talent, and did some good things in the opener. I think he has star potential.

But to keep a guy in the bench (Cole), who makes so many plays in practice and the preseason, is short-sighted.

Maybe he’s the best guy to cover Wes Welker this week.

If he is, we will never find out.

It doesn’t work that way in the NFL.
