He worked with Gailey in Buffalo as offensive quality control and asst wide receivers coach
Kevin Patullo enters his third season with the Bills as offensive quality control coach. Patullo assists in all aspects of coaching the wide receivers. He helped Stevie Johnson to back to back 1,000-yard receiving seasons in 2010 (1,004 yards) and 2011 (1,073 yards). Patullo worked closely in the development of the team’s young receiving corps including three undrafted free agent receivers who were very productive for the Bills in 2010. He coordinates the club’s offensive self-scouting duties and is responsible for computer analysis, statistical and video breakdowns of opponents on a weekly basis
Exactly. They are clueless. The league is offense driven. Even SF who is considered a defensive team put up a ton of points and yards today ( I believe that I heard it was their most ever) and has devoted plenty of resources to building their offense.
Its an offensive league. The rules favor the offense. When was the last time the Jets had an offensive minded head coach? Kotite? Coslet? We continue to hire defense minded head coaches and use our top picks on defensive players and refuse to adjust to the way the game is played today.
Who said Keller doesnt count? Is he signed long term? how much longer will he be here?
The two probowl lineman drafted in 2006 are great as well.
So the Jets draft offense every 3 years, 2006, 2009 and so maybe now 2012 they will draft some offensive playmakers.
Are you really saying the Steelers let Hines Ward walk? What after his 14 year Career!
They could afford to let Holmes, on of their complimentary receivers, go because they drafted Wallace and Sanders in the 3rd round. They have cheap players to take their place already on their roster.
Everybody says the Steelers are a ground and pound team but since The Steelers drafted Big Ben in the first round in 2004, they have drafted the following even though they already had Hines Ward on the team:
2005 Rd 1 Heath Miller TE
2006 Rd 1 Santonio Holmes WR
2008 Rd1 Rashard Mendenhall RB
2008 Rd 2 Limas Sweed WR
2009 Rd 3 Mike Wallace WR
2010 RD 3 Emmanuel Sanders WR
2010 Rd 6 Antonio Brown WR
The Jets havent drafted a WR in the first 3 rounds of the draft in 10 years!
The Jets traded up to the #5 overall pick in the draft to select their supposed franchise QB and a some point they need to bring in some talent around him. Not guys at the end of their career or on 1 or 2 year contracts, but actual building blocks. The lost 3 of their top 4 wrs last year and went through the season with A guy who is just got out of prison who didnt practice or play in the preseason, Santonio Holmes, and Rookie, and a project at the receiver position.
The Steelers, even though they have a capable receiving TE, have much better talent at WR because they draft it!
The Jets brought in long term solutions for the offense from 2006 to 2009 in the draft really???
Funny how you bring up players drafted 3 years before Sanchez as if they were drafted to build around him. Who exactly are the long term solutions that the Jets have brought in recently for the offense? The only reason you go back to 2006, which by the way is 6 years ago, is because of Brick and Mangold.
2007 they drafted Chansi Stuckey in the 7th round. Yeah that helped alot.
2008 Eric Ainge in the 5th, Marcus Henry in the 6th, and Nate Garner in the 7th. Those are long term solutions?
2009 they brought in Sanchez, Greene and Slausen
a #1 Wr isnt a superflous position in todays passing league and will help any quarterback we have if we move on from Sanchez. You cant get rid of 3 of your 4 top wrs every year and expect the QB to not miss a beat.
Im hoping they draft someone who is capable of being the #2 this year and can be the #1 going forward for several years. Bringing in Bray or Cotch on a short term deal is just putting another patch on the offense, when we need to start actually building an offense with longer term solutions.
The first question on everyone's mind is: When will the 2012 NFL Draft compensation picks be announced? The NFL announces compensatory picks at the owners meeting at the end of March, March 26-28 this year. That's when we will officially know how many compensation picks the Jets have. For now, we can predict how many they will get.
Randle’s excellent performance likely locked up a spot in the draft's top 20 which the first round is called on April 26. According to two NFL people, Rueben timed between 4.33 and 4.37 on both of his 40 times. In addition, he ran exceptional routes.
At 6-3 and 212 pounds, Randle displayed the ability to get in and out of his cuts with quickness. According to a source at the workout, “He did an outstanding job of reaching out and plucking the ball with his hands.”
Rueben Randle was a projected late first to second round, but he had a good pro day today increasing his stock.
Rueben Randle - WR - Player
LSU WR Rueben Randle clocked forty times of 4.33 and 4.37 at the Tigers' Thursday Pro Day.
Randle ran 4.50 and 4.56 at the Combine. While LSU has a fast track (Mo Claiborne improved from 4.50 to 4.39), Randle clearly is not speed deficient. Randle also drew praise for his work in position drills. "He did an outstanding job of reaching out and plucking the ball with his hands," said one source at the workout. Sporting News' Russ Lande expects Randle to be a top-20 pick.
Thankfully Avery signed with the Colts. I hope we draft a 1/2 type.
Donnie Avery - WR - Colts
Colts signed WR Donnie Avery, formerly of the Titans.
The snakebitten former 33rd overall pick in the draft, Avery racked up 100 receptions for 1,263 yards and eight touchdowns during his first two NFL seasons before tearing his right ACL in August of 2010. Avery did post three catches for 45 yards and a touchdown in Week 17 of 2011, but he did nothing in between. The 28-year-old (in June) is still certainly worth a flier. While brittle and limited physically, Avery runs like the wind when healthy.
