Mekhi Becton is looking like he’s in fantastic shape training with Duke Manyweather.

Becton rookie year > fant last year according to pff . 

Not to mention the other actual starters on that line got better in '21. I can't award Becton got-better points when he missed the whole season, but his pinnacle was unlikely to have been as a rookie on Frank Pollack's line.

Yes the same one who coached the Bengals line into trying to end Burrow's young career in '21 after missing his soph season

  • who got fired after 1 year as Oakland's OLC;
  • then seems to have gotten a bunch of undue credit for an OL already armed with three all-pros plus then landing La'el Collins, before getting fired;
  • who then moved to Cin where his OL landed Dalton on IR before getting fired;
  • then to the Jets for the two Gase years, again getting fired with the coach change;
  • finally then returning to Cin to see how many sacks it'd take to land Burrow on IR again (amazingly he stayed upright to the end), where everyone knows they got as far as they did despite Pollack's weakest unit on the team. 

Someone explain to me why he is so well regarded & what I'm missing. His track record is garbage outside of coaching a line with 4 pro bowlers on it plus a PB TE helping out (and not exactly being responsible for coaching up low-end talent into PB/AP linemen at that). 

So long as he stays on the field - granted this is no given - Becton should be just fine at worst.

Ah shoot, sorry Max.  I just screen recorded it off of Duke’s page because I knew it would disappear.  I’ll try and see if someone tweeted or something and link it here.  If not I’ll tweet it myself and link it!

Thank you!

Why not? Everyone here assumed he was completely out of shape and at 4 bills based on beat reporter speculation.

Speak for yourself. I always thought that was straight bullsh*t.

Good post and details I can’t recall anyone pointing out here. 🔥🔥🔥

The hate on Becton is so wildly over the top.  The guy was the best rookie Left Tackle just a year ago.  Now clowns are gloating about Wirfs, a right tackle who only has to pass protect for maybe 1 second for brady.

LOL

The proof will be in the pudding. I loathe all these "look at how hard I train" videos. He had the same ones last off season before getting his azz handed to him during TC by Lawson.

He seems to have a chip on his shoulder which is good. TC will give some insight on where he's at.

I'm young enough to remember Le'Veon Bell's boxing videos a couple summers ago, when he was supposed to be in the "best shape of his life".

lol, I mean, you’re a fan on a message board with zero influence or control of the situation … posts like these are so weird.

I mean every single pro-Becton post is fan fiction with the 'if healthy' disclaimer hastily slapped on at the end which isn't weird at all.

This literally has nothing to do with my comment. Bravo.

He WAS in great shape...he was just too slow to be effective anymore.

Very happy for MB and his girlfriend. Children are a gift and add so much to a home. It appears they had a son. 
 

Please…. No rude comments. This is off limits to Jet fans and SOJF. 

Amazing we have to remind people family is off limits…….

Literally zero people said anything about Mekhi Becton’s family, but you pre-shamed those imaginary people. You, sir, are Captain material.
