Is Harrison an awesome player?

Recommended Posts

Harrison deserves a lot of credit.  Let’s be honest many people were still down on him even after playing pretty well last year

Harrison is awesome and is the long term answer at center.

Gase not realizing this probably cost us the season.  Total incompetance on gase and douglas’ part.

Frank Pollack had no say? He is the Oline coach & if your going to tell me the Oline coach has no communication with the Head Coach about each & every players abilities than what exactly is he here for since he's working with this group 24/7 & reviewing practice film & game film constantly?

At about 1/6 the cost of Mitch Morse who is out again with an injury

It’s not just him , it’s Lewis and Compton.

The interior of the line is a massive upgrade from kelechi osemele, Ryan Kalil, and Brian Winters. Darnold has time to thow the ball. Honestly in my near 40 year fandom, I’d never seen such poor oline play.

It’s like with Roberts and Johnson out, Bless Austin and Arthur Maulet are miles better.

Sign a vet starting OG and draft a OT and a OG, add some depth and the oline and Harrison will be fine.
Obviously easier said then done but that should be the priority.

His 56 pff is better than kalils 46 but he is not awesome 

You don’t need an all pro like Mawae or Mangold.  Just someone competent

Yeah, Douglas is COMPLETELY incompetent because he didn't recognize the second string center from last year who he just met, wasn't a starter.

Some of you guys just won't quit, will you?

They learn it from our politicians.

Harrison is a good player.  Awesome?  No.  But certainly good enough to not have to go pull a dude out of retirement, pay him 10 mil and suck balls so bad he probably cost you the season.  There is also something to be said about the QB/C relationship.  Sam trusts Harrison, it's pretty obvious.

It’s not perfect for sure but this is the second coaching staff that deemed him a backup.

Harrison is a competent player who has good chemistry with Darnold.
That has made him an upgrade over Long and Kalil the past two years.
Beachum can be included in that competent category also, since he's
come back the line has stabilized.  I wouldn't be shocked if both
are back next year as "stop gap starters" as the team waits for the
rookie LT & C they draft to take over

The answer to the OP question is no. He's below average and the Jets will hopefully draft a starting C in rounds 1-3 of the upcoming draft, after a LT is selected.

Have a happy Thanksgiving!

The Harrison situation is a bad sign for how the Jets have been managed.  We think Douglas and Gase have their act together, but then we she how they handled this.  

He is under contract next year, thankfully.  A relatively bargain contract.  

Good observation.  I see the logic in bringing in competition but not seeing how much better Harrison is/was is a little worrisome.

I don’t think he’s great, but he looks like a decent starting center.

Just a week or two ago I was all for investing a Top 40 pick on the position. Now I don’t see much point.

Take one in the 3rd or 4th to develop/provide competition, sure.

But both guard and tackle spots should be a higher priority.

I don't know if he's "awesome" but he's respectable and clearly better than Kalil.

Signing and starting Kalil is one of the bigger whiffs of this administration.

The best thing that has happened to Jonathan Harrison is Spencer Long and Ryan Kalil. He’s a quality backup who won’t get your QB killed, but he also offers nothing in the running game. There is a reason why Gase and Douglas wanted to upgrade. 

Hasn’t the running game improved since Khalil and Winters are gone....?

Harrison should have started from the beginning. Looked solid at the end of last year. I understand why they went the Kalil route but it ended up being a huge mistake. Good thing is will see him play the rest of season so we might have our future Center.

Yes, but going from 2yd losses on practically every run play to 2yd gains still leaves a lot of room for improvement.

He's solid, but mostly has just been the best of a bad bunch.  He's certainly far from the Jets' biggest issue along the OL, so they could get away with not prioritizing it quite as much as other positions, but should also not consider him to be enough for center to be off the list of needs if an opportunity does present itself.

Was gonna post something similar to this. We aren't talking Mawae/Mangold here.

More importantly, Darnold seems to have a good working relationship with him. Still, I have visions of Creed Humphrey dancing in my head.
