  1. Pouha was considered garbage until after his 3rd year. Hopefully this works out the same.
  2. who? ok that was a joke.. Hope Baylor had a top notch program. I like the first 3 rounds. Hopefully these guys can provide some depth.
  3. maybe a player, but these later round guys will be lucky to make the team. Guess Powell needs to watch his back
  4. so was jerrell powe. he was a 5 star recruit that never lived up to the billing. Patrick Willis was a 3 star recruit.
  5. I like the pick. As an Ole Miss fan, I wanted no part of Massie. All of the Ole MIss lineman were garbage this year,
  6. Why are you blaming Namath? Anytime something newsworthy happens to the jets, everyone runs to Joe to get his take. For one, he gives his honest opinion and doesn't hold back. Two, he is usually right. I would keep going back to get his opinion on everything too.
  7. Hey on the bright side, he's not any worse than drew stanton
  8. +1 I would rather stick with Sanchez and see if he might improve. Although If I see the same old crap through preseason I will jump on the Sanchez is a turd bandwagon
  9. he's been right about most things concerning the jets......yet everyone keeps calling him a stupid drunk who is no longer relevent
  10. For those considering Laron Landry, he sucked in coverage. He's really gonna suck in coverage now:
  11. I'd take turner over McCariens
  12. If he doesn't crap the bed, blow jobs for everyone. Just contact your local moderator.
  13. Mike Smith is back as OLB coach Manish Mehta @TheJetsStream WVU responsibilities not what he thought RT @JeffDarlington Mike Smith, who accepted job w/WVU,decided to instead stay as Jets OLB coach
  14. "They called and said, 'We're going to let Rex speak with you,' " Ellis said. "He said, 'We want you to come back, but we're not going to start you.' I'm like, OK. Tannenbaum said, 'We've got other guys in front of you, we're offering you the minimum. We'll get back to you.' "It's all how it went about. Just be stand-up, straight up. Just tell me the truth from the start. I'm a big boy, I can handle it. I just felt like there was a lot of sugar coating." I don't know what else he wants them to tell him. That's not sugar coating it and I don't hate Ellis for taking the money, but he doesn't need to hate the jets for not paying him 4 mil. to be a backup
  15. Well I do too and it's very disturbing. Sanchez won't make it through next season.
  16. http://www.latimes.com/sports/la-sp-rich-gannon-20120129,0,3635365.story The way former NFL quarterback and most valuable player Rich Gannon sees it, the development of quarterbacks in the league is seriously lacking. Drafted by New England in 1987 (the Patriots envisioned him as a safety), RICH GANNON was a reliable backup quarterback (and occasional starter) for Minnesota, Washington and Kansas City, before getting the starting job in Oakland under new coach Jon Gruden. Gannon flourished, making four Pro Bowls. He was the NFL's most valuable player in 2002, and led the Raiders to a Super Bowl. He is an analyst for CBS. I don't think we're doing a good enough job developing the quarterback position. Some teams do a much better job, with the Green Bay Packers being one of the best. There are situations in the league where the quarterback is struggling, and you say, "Who's coaching him?" It's, "Well, it's the guy who was the receivers coach two years ago, but we elevated him to the quarterback coach." Well, did he ever play the position? No. Did he ever coach the position? No. And that's part of the problem. I remember when I played in Kansas City in the off-season we had eight-page quarterback tests. First page would be an essay; second page: multiple choice; third page: fill in the blank; fourth, fifth, sixth pages would be protections, where you had to draw up a protection versus eight different fronts. Then there would be short-answer questions. Honestly, it was about a 45-minute test. It was unbelievable. There was some peer pressure to get a good score, because there were other quarterbacks in that room, and you didn't want to be the one to miss five or six questions on that test. Second, it allowed the coach to know who knew what and who didn't know what. What were your areas of strength, and what were the areas where you needed more work? Packers Coach Mike McCarthy coached the quarterbacks in Kansas City at the time, and he took those tests to another level. The first question on one test: Describe in 250 words or less our version of the West Coast offense and the Kansas City Chiefs' philosophy as it relates to playing the quarterback position. That was the question. Another of the questions was "Describe 24 and 25 Protection — solid seven-man protection — and draw it up against these eight different fronts." I can go into some teams right now and I can ask the quarterback, "Tell me everything you know about protection." And you'd be blown away at the guys' responses, what they don't know. You'd be just stunned. You'd think you could ask about everything they know about protections and the guy would say, "OK, let's talk about five-man protections, then six-man protections, then seven-man protections, eight-man protections. Let's talk about slide protections. Let's talk about quarterback movement, the boots, the nakeds, the keys. Let's talk about the quick reads." But I go in and ask some quarterbacks, "Who makes the calls at the line of scrimmage?" and it's like, "Oh, the center does that." I'm thinking, the center? He's in a three-point stance and he's got some nose tackle in front of him. He's bent over and can't even see the safeties. If you asked Peyton Manning or Tom Brady to talk about protections, you'd get the PhD answer. When they're talking about the quarterbacks who haven't missed a start, people say, "They must be tough guys. They don't get hurt." Well, part of it is they're so smart. They understand protections, they understand where they're vulnerable. Not only that, but they understand defensive football. So they're not going to be surprised by a weak-safety blitz or a corner where you get hit in the back of the head. As a quarterback, when you hear the play in your headset, you're thinking about a lot of things. You're thinking about the protection, footwork, the read, the concept, who's hot. My point to the young quarterback is, if you break the huddle and you're still thinking about those things as you walk to the line of scrimmage, you're about five or six steps behind me and all the other guys, the veteran guys. When you've run that play, and you've heard that play, and you've conceptually drawn that play up against every protection. You've repped it time and time again in practice, in preseason games, in playoff games, then it becomes second nature to you. The only way I can explain it to you is if you're a 16-year-old and you just get your driver's license, you're driving down the road for the first time and it's almost like you have blinders on. You don't see oncoming traffic, you don't see a pedestrian in the crosswalk, you don't see the three cars behind you, you don't see what's going on six, seven, eight yards up the road. You just see the car in front of you and the traffic light, that's all. Meanwhile, if you're an experienced driver, you see everything. You're able to anticipate. You're able to avoid collisions. That's really the difference. It's experience. It's being a master of your domain. It's being so prepared that the game really slows down. I can remember late in my career, I could walk up to the line of scrimmage and I could see a corner at 10 yards, and the other one at like eight and a half. I could just see that. I could visually say, "OK, there it is." You're so far ahead of it. I think this says alot about Sanchez.
  17. forget reads.....Sanchez' mechanics and footwork have gotten worse this past year. When the fundamentals get worse, thats's on the coach.
