Bilal Powell Appreciation Thread


Recommended Posts

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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

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.

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.
