  1. Gholston has zero pass rushing moves. I guess that's a unique talent in itself.

    Who else in that draft had the same size/strength/speed/quickness that Gholston posseses plus his resume at Ohio State?

    If you don't think he was a unique talent in that draft, I don't know what to say.

    People can complain about being a workout warrior, or lack of desire, etc.

    You're the first person I've seen question his talent.

  2. We're in need of anyone who can stretch the field and make plays deep, such as Jackson. Coles & Cotchery are mostly possession receivers. Cotchery is a great YAC man, but he isn't explosive.

    I don't think stretching the field is a problem with the WRs in order to justify spending the 6th overall on a WR.

    A team can find the "stretch the field" ability at WR in any round. A team uses the 6th overall on a unique talent for that draft, something Jackson isn't. Gholson is a unique talent for that draft. So is DMC.

  3. Although I'm an AL fan and like the Rays Cinderella story, I'm rooting for the Phils because of the city of brotherly love. They haven't won a title there in any sport in over 2 decades. That's crazy.

    TB has already won a recent title with the Bucs, and Florida has had championships with the Heat and Marlins.

    Let Philadelphia finally celebrate.

  4. awww, some love. finally. I've been scanning these drama threads forever looking for a reference, just one. The rest of you are teh suck, btw.

    Like Jetstream, I'll be showing up in both places. No politics here, so I'll be at JI for some stuff, and most of my mafia crew is now at JN, so I'll probably be on here more in the offseason.

    Of course, until this insane case I'm on finishes up, I probably won't be on either site very much. So I've got that going for me.

    Great to see you here doggin!

    It would be cool for you to start some Mafia games here during the offseason.

  5. Yeah, it's cool. But what is the purpose? In what situation is it effective to whip out the transformer smiley???

    And actually the default ones aren't really bad, there just seems to be better ones if you search for them ..

    Now you've charged me with a mission. I have to write a post under some topic where the transformer smiley would be appropriate. I know JoeWilly tried, but now I must do it. I'm up for the challenge.

    By the way, my 20 yr old niece-in-law had a deep discussion after we watched the Transformers movie together where she suggested that every movie should have a transformer in it. Thus, we proceeded to talk for some time about what would be the perfect scene for when the transformer would pop up in certain movies.

  6. nothing is obvious about a junior who missed minicamp in his 6th game ever in the NFL

    he was never drafted to play 3-4 DE so i don't see how this is a knock

    That get's overlooked. Gholston is big time behind the learning curve.

    I don't think, at this point in time, any definitive statements can be made about a non-problem child highly drafted rookie.

    Great to see ya', bit!

  7. That's some crazy ****.

    If the bird, you know, could have reasoned things out, I bet his final moments would have been something like:

    BIRD: "Man, who put this big spider web in here?"

    [struggles a bit].

    "**** this, I can get out of this, I'm a bird for chrissake."

    [Looks up]

    "Holy **** that's a big mother****in' spider."

    [spider slowly descends on a strand of web toward the bird]

    "Back off man! I'm a ****in bird, mother****er. Back off! Ahhhhhhh"

    [as spider sticks his fangs into the bird's skull]"

  8. My "wife" (I call her that because we have a baby together and we're insanely happy together and have been for a while and she's already telling me "ok so here's the wedding plans) on the other hand was also in a bad relationship were all problems were avoided, she's non-confrontational. Being together I'm the confrontational one but I always ALWAYS, try to speak to her like an adult. I'm an emotional guy and I could say some real nasty things to people but I always tell myself "I hate her now but this is the woman I love" and I talk to her. What I get back is constructive arguments that allow us to BOTH change.

    In all honesty, Vicious, you call her your "wife" and are insanely happy (from your end) because she is not your real wife. Why do you think she's talking about wedding plans?

    You could have 6 kids with her and she'd still not act like a "wife" as I described until you are married. Once you're married, the woman you are insanely happy with and adore will disapear forever.

    Just an FYI.

  9. hahahaha!

    I regret to inform you that it is indeed true ..

    Get prepared to be on the birthday/valentines day/blue moon plan.. (As long as none of the three are to close together)

    +1

    Also, forget about the no BJs, be prepared sex twice a year. I'm looking to get the third in before the holidays.

  10. I am going to offer up that while there were no play-action calls (I am agreeing with you) in OT, there were still opportunities that were not executed in the pass plays that were called. Baker falling down was the most egregious. I am not, by any means, absolving Schottenheimer of the responsibility of the playcalling but I think that in this case the players were put in a position to win and did not execute.

    I understand the Baker falling down was big and stuff like that happens (although I fault Baker somewhat for shuffling his feet because he should have been stationary with Favre moving out of the pocket). BUT I do have to criticize the coaching on that play, but for one limited reason: play personnel decision.

    It should have been Keller rather than Baker on that route. Not saying that Keller would not have fallen there (although he may have remained stationary there, we'd never know), but it would have had a greater "big play" potential with Keller because Baker had daylight to the endzone there. Baker is not agile enough or quick enough to score there, but Keller is and would have. What did they use a 1st rounder on Keller and not use him in that situation?

  11. Agreed completely. It seemed fairly obvious that Coles was breaking down, and while I love the effort the guy gives on the field, those cap dollars are too important to give away to a guy on his last legs..

    Yep, but thank the football gods for the extra cap space.

    With all that is happening, it seems that the prefix "mis" needs to be added to the word management in the term "Jets Management"

  12. agree with responses. gholston is the least of our problems really.

    If I had to give our coaching staff any credit, it's their creativeness in missusing players.

    Westoff is the only guy able to put a stamp on this team & his guys aren't on the field enough

    LOL.

    That's an excellent way to describe it.

  13. That's all I'm saying. He even drafted a WR in the first round that has a very similar background to the one that was drafted here. It is clear how Herm likes to build his teams and it's not a good plan.

    I really hate "system" HCs. They get early success and think their "system" works, while completely disregarding the multiple of variables as to why they were successful in the first place.

    Coaches like to recreate what they had in the past and it hardly ever works. It's not just in the NFL, it's also in the NBA (not so much in the NHL & MLB). Mike D'Antoni is trying to recreate the Suns although they don't have the players. That's idiotic. That's why I think in both the NFL & NBA, Pat Riley was top 3 best "coaches" I ever saw because he changed as a coach based on the talent he had.

  14. Are you implying that maybe the coaching staff are f'ing idiots???

    If so, I agree wholeheartedly.

    Whatever happened to Mangenius, right? It's crazy. His whole thing was to be better prepared, more daring, and smarter than Herm and after 3 years, he's proved that he's not. Sad, very sad.

  15. The Chiefs had the best OL in the league when Herm arrived. Old - but the best. Still they decided to not replace any of them and instead turn their attention to over 35 year old CB's, crappy rookie DE's and a three technique DT that has yet to make a tackle this year. Going back to the Schott days the Chiefs OL has been one of the best in the league. There is no doubt Herm is calling the personel shots and did here too or Bradway wouldn't still be on the payroll.

    True. The neglect is having no plan to replace the studs that were leaving. When it happens in 2 places and the 1 common denominator is Herm, Herm's culpability is hard to ignore.

  16. I strongly disagree. The Chiefs' personel moves have almost been identical to the Jets under Herm and Peterson has a history of taking care of his OL, yet this Chiefs line is a disaster.

    Peterson is like a 100 years old, you really think Herm has as much pull on him?

    The Chiefs OLine was on the precipice of disaster BEFORE Herm got there if I'm not mistaken. Remember, before Herm signed, they were going to lose 2 stud OLinemen. That changed everything.

    That said, I don't think Herm is blameless, just that I don't think he has the pull with the GM that you guys think he does.

  17. I was worried about Gholston being a workout warrior, still am. I remember the more it becamse obvious that we were going to end up drafting him, the more I tried to convince myself he'd be a great OLB.

    I still would have taken Matt Ryan, DMC or Chris Long ahead of him though.

    I understand the concern about Gholston being a workout warrior, but he did have the resume to back it up. It wasn't like DRob who became the 4th overall strictly by what he did at the Combine.

    My order was Long, DMC, Gholston. Long has not looked good either.
