Jets fans are obsessed with offensive line because we've forgotten what competent QB looks like. Teams with actual QB's don't need a perfect Pro Bowl at every position offensive line. The QB just makes decisions quickly and gets rid of the ball under 3 seconds. We haven't seen that since Chad.
The fact of the matter is the Jets offensive line was 2nd in the league in rushing last year, against teams that knew it was coming. And they added Carpenter to that group. It's a borderline top-tier unit.
He's a 4th rounder those guys make it to the practice squad all the time. I don't see it as such a huge risk. If Petty was any threat to help this 2015 Jets team they wouldn't have brought in Flynn or Josh Johnson. In fact he should be competing with Fitz if he was as good as the board seems to believe. He's a 2-3 year project. that's what the practice squad is for.
I did and most of his successful throws were out of that spread/shotgun. A team isn't going to pick him up and run those air raid plays just for him. He's like 2-3 years away from meaningful contribution, that's pretty much what the practice squad was made for.
The thing about Petty is he doesn't help this season, at all. PFF has him graded as the 3rd worst QB in the preseason. Why pay this player a whole year's salary and take a roster spot? No one wants to do that, which is why he'd probably be safe on the practice squad.
it is common for rookie OL to have problems their first year. it's a mans job and alot of these guys are not physically mature enough to handle an NFL DT. I remember Brick having an up and down rookie year. It happens.
Doesn't mean Scherff isn't a bust but it is a common thing.
this statement makes it seem like Geno had nothing to do with it. "Circumstances" like owing people money and taunting them about it? it's the same immaturity that caused him to fall to rd2 three years ago. He doesn't have to be perfect as a QB but he should be getting better as a person. That isn't happening.
ok sure but at what point does the plug get pulled? Geno isn't getting reps right now. He's healing and will be for another month or two. When he returns he will likely be underweight and not in game shape. And the reps in practice mid season are more about game planning than trying to help the 3rd year QB try to read a defense.
Geno isn't a rookie. He probably isn't getting much better. It's time to move on.
