    Were they much older ??... only asking because several scopes would widdle down the meniscus plus natural atrophy.... they replace excised meniscus with tissue that does not continue to grow but serves to fill in ... and that is in more extreme cases.

    He's 53 and has been told he needs a knee replacement.

    Best I can make out is that they’re planning a meniscus trim, which is much less involved than a repair, but once they open it up they may find something new and/or change their minds. 
     
    Still thinking (hoping) two games out, maximum, right now. But maybe zero. 

    Had a relative go out on permanent disability after several meniscus 'scopes'. Bone on bone is the result when there is no cushioning - which is what I thought the meniscus provided.

    Didn't know if it can be repaired. I hope they don't have to trim it because it doesn't grow back and Zach just might want to walk w/o a limp later in life. Lucky for him he rich as AF and doesn't need football.

  3. There's something a little fishy about the reports - coming from the Jets - that Zach might be ready for week 1 with the injury being 2-4 weeks. I don't trust the Jets front office at all.

    I hope Zach is OK but this is going to hurt his progress, even he only misses 2 to 3 games, he'll start out under a great deal of pressure if we start the season without a win.

    kind of like the "good ol' days" huh?  As a kid in the 80s, I remember they did not even show the Jets-giants PS game on TV.  the replay would be on at like 3 AM.  I would record it and try to watch it before I saw the score.  back then, I cared because the starters would play at least the first half.  now....you're lucky to get a series or two.

    Yeah, I'll follow along checking the board while watching the Yankees. Will watch the taped replay when I get up.

    Drafting an OT at 4 or 10 this year would still have been dumb even in hindsight.

    @slats

    We'll have to see how that plays out. A CB at 4 better be able to shutdown the best WR he faces every game and not play one side but follow and shutdown their best WR all game.

    CB illegal contact rules minimize their impact - especially this upcoming season with emphasis on illegal contact . Franchise LT is the 2nd most important position and taking one at 4 was the smart move. JD refusing to admit his mistake w/Becton and address the position was the dumb move.

    Considering our OL situation, Becton, Moses gone, Fant in his last year, the dumb move was to ignore the position and go for CB.

    LT, Edge or WR should have been taken before CB.

    Sorry if you didn’t like me locking one necro’d thread when we already had a merged thread with 20-something pages on the subject. Had nothing to do with avoiding the topic. The topic is here. That’s why we merge, so there’s not a few threads with the same people posting the same things.
     
    The reason I don’t like re-litigating is that I find it to be pointless. What’s done is done. 

    No problem. Didn't mean to offend.

    NFL is changing from the old days but we can still enjoy the season.

    I disagreed at the time, and I disagree now. Even if Sauce wasn’t balling out in camp (he is) or if Ekwonu was (he isn’t), it still wouldn’t change my mind. Passing on the tackle was absolutely the right move. You can pretend otherwise, but CB remains a premium position in the NFL. Jets entered the draft with two starting tackles. It would’ve been dumb, imho, to spend a high pick on another one (especially after taking OL in the first round two years in row). I would’ve liked them to retain Moses or sign a similar replacement. To me, that was the failing here. They needed a backup OT. That’s not a position I want my GM using a top five pick on. 

    I’m not interested in re-litigating it, though. It’s already done. I’m more interested in seeing what they do to fix it now. 

    OK - we disagree - let's see how the season plays out. Shutdown CB is history with today's NFL rules and emphasis on scoring and a CB is a total waste of the #4OA pick.

    Interesting how many fans are "not interested in re-litigating it" after their positions are proven incorrect and some of those threads get locked by coincidence.

    Sure, but the Jets now have a LT that was fine last year in protecting the QB - and even better if they bring in Brown who was an all-pro last year. 

    The Jets OL will be fine - and now we have a potential superstar CB.

    OK - the OL is not in bad shape IF we get Brown this season. But he's a stop gap solution and I regret that JD blew the opportunity to 'possibly' draft a 10 year LT and refused to admit his Becton mistake and took a CB - a much lower valued position with today's rules.

    I also like Gardner but I'll hold off on the "potential superstar CB" stuff until he 'one on one' shuts down the WR's in the AFCE let, alone the NFL.

    your so-called franchise left tackle is struggling in camp, especially with pass protection, is behind last year's 3rd round pick on the depth chart and is playing guard.  obviously it is early in his career, but there were many concerns about his ability to pass protect and questions on whether he would hold up at LT

    That doesn't mean it was the right move. and Give Ickey a little time and he'll be very good.

    I’m more than happy to agree that they should’ve done more at OT. Just saying that, yes, I was adamant then and haven’t changed my opinion that the Jets should not’ve used the #4 pick on an OT, and nothing’s happened so far to change my mind on that front. I don’t like to dwell on things that didn’t happen, though, I’d rather focus on what they’re going to do now.

    Your evaluation of Becton didn't "change my (your) mind on that front"  - that LT was still a major weakness?

    I don't like to just forget  things that did happen and let those responsible walk scott free. But yes we need to move on and sign a serviceable LT and see what this team can do.
