Jared- Everyone is rooting for Austin. From the fans to Mark Sanchez, we all are hoping he can do good. If Howard can protect Sanchez in the upcoming game against the Panthers, he should be the starter. Rex has said he likes Wayne Hunter in the sixth man spot, where he was when Damion Woody was the right tackle. Hopefully Howard is a diamond in the rough for the Jets.
