New York Jets: David Boller

Jets preview: Make-or-break stretch

In a span of 12 days in October, the Jets face San Diego (away), Denver and New England (away) -- Philip Rivers, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, respectively. For the Jets and their suspect secondary, it will be the Missiles of October. It would be an extraordinary accomplishment if they could win two out of three in that stretch of the schedule. If they can get through the Patriots with the 4-3 record or better, they'd be in great shape for a second-half run. On the flip side, the Jets' season could be blown up by Halloween if they fall apart against the Rivers-Manning-Brady troika.

The New York Jets have made changes in their scouting department.

David Boller, who scouted the West region, was relieved of his duties after only one year, the team confirmed. This came as a surprise because he was hired by general manager John Idzik amid last year's department shakeup.

To replace Boller and Aaron Glenn, who left two weeks ago to become the Cleveland Browns' assistant secondary coach, the Jets announced the hirings of Johnathon Stigall and Seth Turner.

Stigall came from the Browns, where he spent the past four seasons scouting the Midland and Southwest regions. Prior to that, he scouted for the Philadelphia Eagles, Miami Dolphins and Chicago Bears. Turner worked previously for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he scouted for 13 years. He worked the Midwest and Northwest.

Only two of the Jets' seven area scouts are holdovers from the previous administration.
