If Becton were guaranteed to have a D'Brickashaw-like career, would you take it, or roll the dice with his upside?

Ferguson's accolades:

• 3x Pro Bowler

• 160 consecutive starts

• Never missed a game in his career

Generally, I think this would be a no-brainer and a landslide, but I pose the question as I've seen numerous posters on this board, NFL talking heads, etc., mention how Becton could be a perennial all pro and hall of fame player at the end of day.

Ferguson had a very good, not great career, but he solidified the left side of the line since the day he stepped onto the field. Absolutely nothing to scoff at.

So, knowing what we currently know about how Becton's career will pan out (nothing), would you be willing to forgo a decade of above-average LT play and deal with any of the potential outcomes (bust, average, pro bowler, etc.), in order to see if Becton could fulfill his potential?

If Becton was a steady and reliable force protecting Darnold's blindside for his career, I would absolutely take it. That's what D'Brick provided.

Marvin Powell was a 5 time Pro Bowler and 3 time All Pro yet Kenny lovers always blamed the O-line for his failures. If you have a QB that has cement shoes for feet and can't move and has a slow release it's not always on the O-line.. I'll take the upside of Becton plus Sam is not a statue like Kenny was..

Bechton has higher upside because he's a beastly run blocker. Brick was good, but there was a reason we pulled are center to the right.

A 1 time Pro Bowler with the Jets most td's in a season with 6 and catch career % was under 50.. Your easy to please..

If Ashtyn Davis could be half the player Jamal Adams is, I'll sign in a second.

OMG, people are praying for Becton to plateau at mediocrity and then cost us an AFC Championship Game.  

SOJF are the worst.

I'd sign up for Chris Herndon to have a Mickey Shuler career. 

Heck, I'd sign up for Sam Darnold to have a Ben Roethlisberger career.*

 

 

I don't want Darnold to have a career like any former Jets quarterback. It's mostly a sad history. Why else would we see pictures like this one.

Marvin Powell was a five time pro bowler ...ending in 1983.

His final year in NY was 1985- Kenny’s first year as the starter.

Kenny had cement feet but the line also blew. Not sure what any of this has to do with Sam-who does not have cement feet - or Becton, but sure.

That's true, but Powell was only in front of Kenny for two years, and that was at RT. He wasn't old yet, but he had some tread on the tires.

Pat Ryan never had a problem with the O-line and even won a Playoff game something KO never did..

Pretty sure Davis can get 30 tackles and a half a pick by Week Six.

15 yards per catch, almost 700 as a rook, basically two 1,000 yard, 850 in a 13 game season here.  Followed up by going 900, 1,000, 1,600 and 982 yard seasons

Thats with the first two Jets seasons with your whipping boy, O'Brien at QB and then the immortal Browning Nagle before we "upgraded" to Boomer

Id sign up for that out of Mims.

Just look at their stats. Not even close. KOB had a passer rating over 80, while Ryan's was below 65. He had 30 more TDs than INTs, while Ryan had more career INTs than TDs. He had a higher passer rating.

No one ever complained about the OL.

And if it weren't for KO, Ryan never would have sniffed a playoff game.  Theres no comparing the two, Ryan was a limited QB and KO was a hell of a good thrower.

Glad you asked, I wasn't getting it either.

We always do get a history lesson on a complete target out of Savage.  But he is teaching the youngsters a bit of Jets history.  😎

Brick was as steady as they come, but never dominant. I’m looking for dominant from Becton. 

Wasn't Brick considered a generational OL when he was drafted, too?
