    Solving The Goodson Mystery

    Having been through 2 rehabs around 20 years ago, I can honestly say that the success of these programs are only as good as the motives you go in with. My first stint was forced upon me if I wanted to continue my college career. Didn't think I belonged there and after finishing my month and being reinstated went back to what I enjoyed(just more secretively). Second time was at the behest of my ex and again, just doing it to get people off my back. Again, went back to my old ways and, the marriage ended. The day my ex moved out, I realized how many people I had hurt through my addiction and in a moment of absolute clarity I admitted to myself that I was powerless to change, got on my knees and prayed that Jesus would take this burden from me. From that night on (20 years in November) I have not touched a drink or drug. The desire was taken from me. I'm not trying to go religious here, just giving credit where credit is due. Only an inner change can bring forth a change in character. I hope Goodoen has finally had a moment of clarity, not to just save his butt, but to save his life. The rewards are immeasurable.

    On the Hill TD, it was the last play of the scrimmage, with Hill running alone against a guy who's fighting to be the 6th corner, with no safety help over the top. It was not dissimilar to when teams allow the Make-a-Wish kid to take a handoff and score a TD in practice.

    This has got to be one of the most absurdly incorrect things you have written, which is saying a lot.

    Solving The Goodson Mystery

    There is every reason to believe Mike Goodson is in Rehab. The team knows where he is, and have no problem with it. They do not talk about it, since as his employer it is illegal to do so. The media is also quiet about this, there are no “where is he” investigations. Mike Goodson of the New York Jets is just not that big, so there is no money in it for gossip tabloids who are willing to pay reporters and paparazzi. While a bona fide journalist has protection under the constitution, as interpreted by the courts, from the non-disclosure laws, the person who leaks a story or provides information to the reporter is not. Whoever gave the reporter information is doing something illegal. They are at risk for punishment by the state, their employer or whatever. It seems that the case for the gun charges is weak, since the driver of the car told the police the gun was his. So if Goodson has already completed Rehab it is likely there will be no jail time for the Pot found on him. Goodson is being proactive rather than reactive, the team knows this, that is why Rex is not frustrated. Completing Rehab also means the NFL is less likely to suspend him for more then one game, if that. I use to make referrals to Rehab programs in my job so I would like to explain some things about Rehab programs. You did not have to be an addict to go to rehab. All you had to do was feel that your abuse of a substance was causing a problem in your life and you wanted to stop. In theory, addiction only occurs when there is a physical dependency like heroin or alcohol. But a person could have a psychological dependency, and not be considered an addict. Yet they are having problems because of the abuse. That person should also go into a rehab program, although not an addict. The problem may be getting drunk once a week on Saturday nights. But if you missed work on Sunday, to this extent it was causing problems in your life. If you can not stop this behavior on your own, you should go to rehab. But rehab is very, very expensive since you are an inpatient, so self-help programs, such as AA, exist for problems with a dependancy. But these programs can not work with a true addiction. Their rate of success is not as high for a dependancy as are formal Rehab programs. A program can be as short as 28 days and as long as a year. It depends on the type and severity of the problem. In Goodson's case there is an indication that it is for both pot and alcohol with alcohol being the greater problem. By law, the Jets can not say he is in rehab, it is a medical problem. The Rehab programs can be modified for special situations, a trainer can be brought in, in fact some type of physical activity is a part of most programs. Goodson has a lot of time for reading and studying the playbook. A program is not prison, and it is not meant to punish, but is client-centric and meant to improve the quality of life. Including running the ball since that is Goodson's job. People think Rehab is a bad thing, it is not. Rehab is short for rehabilitation and is vindication of a person’s character and the re-establishment of that person’s reputation. It is a good thing not a bad thing. Rehab is nothing more then a period of time for isolation from the people and triggers that cause you to abuse the substance. It is also a chance for the substance to drain from your body and your body to adjust to once again being substance free. Doctors are there so that if you have a physical addiction, not just a dependency, they can treat the side effects of withdrawal (DT's or "delirium tremens in the case of alcohol). These are combined with a education program in order to learn how to avoid the abuse of substance in the future. When completed it is followed by an outpatient program for support and reinforcement. The most important thing is the client wants to change their behavior, it can not be forced on someone and be successful. Goodson wanted to change, because of the character defects his usage caused, and that is a good thing.

    A solid if not terrific Jet career will now be remembered for Mark Sanchez's inability to use basic cognitive skills.

    I'm not sure what the problem is other than this board being full of size queens. Wouldn't you prefer Wilson right up on Gronkowski to watching Pace flail his arms from 11 yards away? Sure Wilson is going to get muscled by TEs sometimes, but I think the idea is to have him play FS out in space where we want him to cover ground and break on the ball. Personally I like Trufant in the slot but he is coming off the ACL IIRC. Lankster too. Against the pass our best set might be with Wilson @ FS, Landry SS, with Trufant or Lankster in the slot and Milliner and Cro outside. The idea is to get the best guys on the field, not be all caught up in labels.

    This is true, but he was mocked for puking all over himself, having to go to the hospital because he was so drunk, possibility of going to jail, and losing your million dollar job. All this in one nightmare night. I think this is enough to cause a person to reevaluate his life and the path he is following.

    hahaa...Why you mad, brah? Serious question. Are you more upset that: (1) Sanchez is on our team, (2) He's soaking up so much cap space, or (3) he's under performing? If it's #1: For all intents and purposes, he's a great teammate. He's the first player in, the last guy out. He's a tireless worker and goes out of his way to take on the role of being a New York quarterback. Before last year, he displayed that he could improve from season to season, and has been developing his professional skills, both on the clock and on his own dime. If it's #2: You're allocating your anger in the wrong direction. Can't fault a man for taking more money than he's worth; that's on his employer. Perhaps it's selfish of him to accept that kind of dough, knowing he isn't meeting expectations. But truth be told I'd do the same. I might even "hook my employer up" by converting some of my salary into a bonus. But that's the humanitarian in me. If it's #3: That's also on his employer. Because like it or not, Mark Sanchez has been the best QB on our roster for the last four years. We finally spent something significant on a QB (a 2nd round pick not named Kellen Clemens). Is it possible you just don't like the Jets? Perhaps you not getting the JN-Captain nod is seeping into your subconscious, and you're taking it out on Mark because of a couple interceptions, fumbles, and embarrassing SportsCenter highlights. I get it. Mark is the fall man. But here's the deal. Our ENTIRE team has sucked for the last year and a half. I've seen our defense lose us games. I've seen our ST coverage units lose us games. I've seen players drop passes, I've seen mis-tackles, and fumbles a plenty. Mark is still the QB of my favorite football team and until he gets passed up, and I will throw my support behind him and optimistically hope for the best.

    Kid reminds me a lot of a Jordan Shipley lite, but during his Texas days before all the injuries in the NFL. And notbecause he's white, but the fact that they were both track guys who have a very similar style of play...well, not only because he's white.

    Suspect that it's more than a trend. This is a problem with football stats. Defense is not by itself in a vacuum. How a game is coached and played is dictated by how great or awful your opponent is, and especially if their offense can score points. Football stats are helpful only to a point. And if you have a very good QB or a defense that gets to the QB, the rest of your team is much less critical. When Ryan babbled about how great a pass defense the Jets had last year he should've had his fat mouth filled with pigs feet. It was crap. No one bothered to pass against the Jets because they would rather play field position , keep their own offense form taking chances and waiting out the inevitable Sanchez eff up. Further this top 10 defense nonsense doesn't take into account whether the offense on said team was any good and how that impacted how a game was played and coached each week, This thread acts like defense is a totally separate variable rather than one impacted by a team's offense and specials. A great punter might give that defense and extra 10 yards more to defend. A defense matched with a superior offense might not be all that good, just cleaned up a lot of blowouts. There are probably any number of other permutations that this thread hypothesis doesn't take into account.

    So I'm going to have to retract some of my tone. I was going back and forth between this and 'the other' board today and all of those comments were said (some paraphrased) over there. This place is a lot more rational for the most part. So to that extent, mea culpa. But in fairness, RSJ did leave this gem later in this same thread: "Did you ever take into consideration that Sanchez threw that TD to a first team WR, going against the second team defense? " Unless we're figuring out whether every pass both QBs threw was against which defense, this is sort of the thing I was referring to. If Geno had thrown that same TD pass against the 2nd team defense, would the same poster have made the same comment?

    Sounds great in theory, but bit is amongst the very last people on this entire board who has any room to judge anyone else when it comes to such things. There is no one more notorious for blatantly distorting the facts and ignoring any points that don't support his position, to the point of even regularly deleting things out of posts he quotes to which he has no counter. The reality is he's against Geno because Geno was an Idzik pick and he dislikes Idzik because Idzik traded away Revis. Besides, considering most of the reports about Sanchez from the scrimmage revolved around his INT and him falling over on his ass, I'm not even sure where he's exactly deriving this theory that Sanchez was the "winner" of the scrimmage. If Rex feels that way than so be it, it is what it is, but it still doesn't give any reason for people to feel differently about Sanchez's prior 4 years of awfulness.

    Not for nothing, but based on that article, Sanchez has a much thicker skin than Manish Mehta. I think fans should boo Mehta to see if he can handle it as well as Sanchez.

    I don't really agree. His problem appears to be getting his head around. At S he'd be facing the ball and he looks decent in zone to me. I think he'd be a good part time S to use against pass happy teams. The other guys we have are mainly in the box guys. Seems more like an indictment of Bush than anything else.

    youre being sarcastic but DBs often drop easy ints. which is why they are DBs not WRs.
