Met our Right Tackle today by accident.

This is true. I know he played the TE in those jumbo sets they'd run with an extra OL back in 2009 and 2010. Vlad had that role last year, and was mostly no bueno.

you realize those were running plays right ?

True, he is aware that fans are not happy with his production last year, but is going to be better.

Translation: He was nice to me, so he's a great player now.

Vlads weakness was always pass protection. Seems to be Wayne's weakness as well. The internetz have written off Vlad but I don't think Tanny and Rex have yet. Sparano and the OL coach he brought with him could develop him

i havnt written off vlad, either. I think, i hope, with a full offseason, this is the year he gets it. I saw improvement last year. As a few posters noted before, when vlad knows who to block, he blocks them well. He is going to be the most improved player on the jets roster this year and the jets starting right tackle for many years to come. Just imho

Which one is Wayne Hunter?

The big yellow one is the sun. Not sure how that impacts Hunter.

Good timing wearing jets gear. I was surprised how many jet fans I met in Seattle.

I was in seattle a few years back and was able to purchase some nice Jets gear there. I was quite surprised.

At this point, barring a high draft pick it looks like he's going in penciled in as the starter with the Jets likely hoping Vlad gets it together and beats him out for the job. I will say, I am at least slightly optimistic about Vlad. Not so much that I think he'll be great, but I do think he has a legitimate chance to seriously improve, as I don't think there's a single player on this roster who was in more desperate need of an offseason last year than Vlad, and he really had to be hurt by the lockout. With some extra playing time last year and a full offseason under his belt, hopefully he'll start to come around. If not, then how well Hunter plays will determine if the Jets will be RT shopping next year.

Good point on the lockout. But that said, I think I like Hunter's upside better. Hoping to be proven wrong...just so many worries with VLad right now.

my favorite part of this story is that Jetman just happened to be in head to toe Jets gear. In a gym in seattle. Don't get me wrong I believe he'd be the type of person to make that choice regardless of probability to meeting Wayne Hunter. It just strikes me as funny.

Are you saying he kept a spare Jets outfit in the car? Then he changed once he saw Hunter? :)

Maybe Hunter saw the license plate and followed Jetman.
