Jets hire head of Athletic Care and Performance Department.


Recommended Posts

this could be the best move the jets will make this off season.  something had to be done about all of the injuries.  maybe the last guy wasn't at fault but at the same time it seems like all the roads led to their training.

You have a team of professionals that surround one athlete," Dr. DeWeese said. "The athlete is the center of the wheel and your cogs are your coaches, psychologists, your nutritionists, your trainers and it's an all-in approach. It's an all gas, no brake approach to an athlete. One thing when Joe talked about improving the development of players resonated with me, you evaluate the player as a person as a whole, what they do in training and what they do off the field as a person. Come up with a way to give them feedback to improve in an area. It shows the athlete that you care about them and that it's the name on the back rather than the number on the jersey

 

"I talk about a roundtable approach, everybody has a seat at the table. Everybody's equal and there's no walls that divide us," he said. "We may come into a room and have respective dialogue, but we'll come to a decision that we all support. It's important to invest in resources and technology where you can remove your opinion and you can look at the information, what it's telling us and what you think it means, what should it add. And we can move forward with a discussion with everyone on equal footing in a performance model."

You’re right but with all this expertise you’d think they could figure out how to treat male pattern baldness.

This is exactly what the Jets needed, and more importantly, Joe Douglas took ownership of it.  

Tough to have anything negative to say about this.  

or positive ... other than ... couldn't be worse. anyone claims more is ...

Im taking full credit for this!!! lol Moggs, we talked about this privately and I talked about James Smith who is a pioneer of sorts in the world of physical preparation.  He wrote a really progressive book a few years about called "The Governing Dynamics of Coaching" which i would recommend to anyone looking to coach at any level or work with athletes in any way.  Dense book, a lot of physics talk, but overall an invaluable resource. 

Now onto this move which in no way should be brushed aside as just "he'll fix the players hamstrings".  If I am looking at his information correctly and reading the information correctly DeWeese's philosophy looks to be in line with the thinking of James Smith where there is one governing body that manages the load on the athlete and makes sure all parts of the physical preparation work as one individual unit.  Now this seems like a no brainer obviously, but then when you look across sports as a whole you realize that barely any organized teams that this approach.  The Cardinals and possibly still the 49ers are one of the only teams I know of off the top of my head that try to do this with Buddy Morris (Cardinals) who is their Physical Preparation coordinator.  Interestingly enough however, I believe the 49ers at one point brought in James Smith as a consultant to help integrate this into their program which could be where the idea came from and why bringing their coach over here is a big get as well.  

Bottom line, this is a very progressive and forward way of thinking when it comes to physical preparation of athletes.  Applaud the Jets, Applaud Douglas, and give credit where it is due to the Johnsons as well as 1) being ammenable to making a pretty large scale change to structure, and 2) building and purchasing all that will be required for the facility to integrate this into the program. 

I personally couldn't be more happy about a move

Guys, when I say @Chrebetfan80 is more excited than any human being about this, you have no idea hahaha. We’ve been talking in-depth about this for weeks now.

It’s called shaving your remaining peach fuzz off, growing a badass beard, and looking like a man no one wants to f*ck with.

That’s the solution I’m going with if I ever lose my luscious locks (please no).

If only we could have put him and John Abraham together. Last time we had a pass rush. He just played 6 games a year.

And for the record I'm glad we traded him for Mangold, just sad we haven't had a game changer at the position since given how we've spent first round draft capital on defense the last 20 years. We still suck on defense
