Fan favorites that had forum fanboys....and then never amounted to anything!

Recommended Posts

Which Jets players have had the most hype and forum fanboy love that then turned out to be completely undeserved?

A couple quick ones that come to mind:  Kellen Clemens and Brooks Bollinger.  There were quite a few people on those bandwagons.  Unfortunately, those wagons had broken wheels.

Any others?

Who the F*** liked Brooks Bollinger?

There was a guy.  I cant think of who it was...it may have even been the old site.  Huge Brooks Bollinger fan.  Or was it one of Tom Shane's pseudonyms?  I can't remember crap anymore.  And who was the Marko Cavka fan that caused him to become a meme around here?  I want to say it was the buxom blonde lady who's name I can't remember.  Help fish.

Also Darren Walls had a huge fan on this board. 😂

There was more than just a guy.  It was a small but vocal group who really seemed to think Brooks deserved a shot and could surprise as a NFL starter.

Idiot Herman Edwards liked Bollinger better than Ricky Ray who, if given a real chance would have been the Jets starter for a number of years.  so yeah you can put me under the Ricky Ray fanboy club.

Tight End Chris Baker had a lot of people believing in his eventual greatness.

I thought Greg McElroy was a 7th round steal who was going to be, at a minimum, a long-time quality backup in the Pat Ryan style.

When I first read the title I thought it was about JN posters, not players.

Ummm, excuse me, If you google search shirtless hot football players, T0mShane comes up second on the list! If that’s not making it, I don’t know what is!
