Bilal Powell Appreciation Thread

Recommended Posts

Dude was a solid Jet. Kept quiet, never complained, did his job & played his ass off.

My favorite Jet this decade.

I absolutely love him in a non homosexual way.

One of the few middle round draft picks who worked out for the Jets. He was a quality RB. Stayed loyal to the Jets when he was FA, when he probably could’ve gotten a little more money elsewhere.

He may still be on the Jets. It's Montgomery who wont. And I'm happy about that.

Another player that wasn't enough of a star or playmaker to lead us to the playoffs.

I wish him well in the same way that once I saw Ryan Quigley leave.

Like to think the door isn’t completely closed on Bilal, but with Bell, Gore, and Perine they’ll probably look to fill any fourth RB spot with someone who has speed. Trent Cannon is probably the default, given his special teams play.

Seemed to get hurt whenever he had a legit chance to seize #1 spot.  He did produce well imo when he got his chance.

Always liked Powell! Was always very productive with his limited chances. Good luck BP! Thank you for all your efforts!

Similar to Johnny Hector in his Jet career.

he's not gone yet.  there's a chance the jets will bring him back.  but if they don't, powell was a good player for the jets and it's too bad he wasn't able to fully overcome the nagging injury bug.

Was it the 2015 finale win and in game he missed? I remember a lot of people saying if he could’ve played we would’ve won that game.

Powell has been a really good Jet, and a great team player.

Always reliable, and a good runner, receiver and blocker.

Thanks for everything, Bilal.

I noticed that whenever there was a interception against us, he's the one who made the tackle. He was all hustle.

One of the best role players we’ve had in years. Good Jet, thru and thru.

JD goofed here.  Gore over Bilal.  SMH Hopefully Bilal is still in his plans.

There is still a chance they bring him back! If not then yes he was definitely one of my favorites over the years. Usually Bilal would make a big play out of nothing when we needed it the most.

I always liked BP and still do.  Good ball player. Class act.  Always a pro and always a Jet.

Dude played 9 seasons with the same team as a backup running back.  Pretty much unheard of these days.  His career was mediocre but he was great for his role.  I wish him the best and hope he can catch on another team as a backup if he so desires.

Man, look at that sweet uniform.

Bilal > Gore.

Gore will help us beat Buffalo though. He'll be out to show them up.

As others have stated, he was a pro that never complained, did his job and was loyal to the team.  I'll miss him and dam if he didn't play well last year.  Hope the door remains open but if not, I hope he hooks up with another team and plays well.

Bilal was underappreciated. I hope he signs with a contender, he deserves a shot to earn a ring as someone's backup. Would love to see him go back home to Tampa.
