The Evolution of our 2013 Roster

Recommended Posts

Not to keep beating a dead horse here, but I see Colon as the perfect backup, can play tackle or guard. Peterman is just a jag brought in for depth. Oboushi is a RT, and Campbell is a project who should be on the practice squad. Schlauderauff is a nice backup because he can play center also, our new Rob Turner for a few seasons. Winters is a future starter and his future is now. That leaves Vlad as the starter in my eyes. 

 

I think they'd like Vlad to win the job and will give him the opportunity to do so, but I also think they have a serious lack of faith in him, which is why they were sure to bring in plenty of competition and have numerous backup plans.  Vlad will get his shot throughout camp, but don't be shocked if he ends up riding the bench or even getting sent packing in the final cut downs.  He wasn't able to beat out a 6th round pick for the last 3 years, so I wouldn't bet on his ability to beat out all of the guys he currently has up against him at his position, most of whom were hand-picked by the new GM, which he was not.

The three players that cried when Tanny was fired:

 

1.  Tebow

2.  VLad

3.  Caleb

 

All three lost their front office life line.

Did the Jets even try to re-sign Braylon Edwards? One would think that would be a no-brainer, but then again, we're dealing with the Jets here...

Braylon wasn't particularly popular in Seattle, so I'm sure that's not helping his cause in coming back to the Jets with Idzik now running the show.  Besides, with the entire offensive coaching staff gone, who are his links to this current Jets team?  Sanchez?  Holmes?  Rex is pretty much the only guy Idzik might give a crap about that could care about bringing Edwards back.  I wouldn't be surprised, if it turns out that Holmes health is an ongoing issue and/or they aren't happy with what they get out of some of these young guys, if they look at bringing Edwards in later on, but I don't think they'll be in any rush to do that if they don't have to.

Such a no-brainer that 31 other teams seem to also have missed it. Seriously, how many nfl teams couldn't use the caliber of player that JN thinks Braylon Edwards is?

Completely agree. 

Yet we'll still be the team that signs him in a panic halfway through the season.

What 31 other teams see is that Braylon has flopped on his last two teams.  Not surprisingly, there is no interest.

 

What Jet fans see is Braylon playing very well while here, going to other teams where it didn't happen for him, then returning for the last four games last year to look respectable in a passing game that was falling apart.

 

That's why we see him differently from others.

Taking a guess here, I think maybe the reason they didn't sign Braylon yet is because it might be interpreted as a sign the Jets are leaning toward Sanchez.  If Sanchez does beat out Geno, I think there's a good chance they sign Braylon soon.

I agree.  I think this is his last shot with the Jets.

Well, Vlad was admittedly drafted as a project, but I don't think it was meant to be a Five Year Plan.  Either he shows he's ready this year, his fourth, or he's gone.
