You're not wrong, but I'm not sure you're on point either.  It's really not about the video, or what was said, or politely offering legitimate criticism.  It's about creating pain to force a change because fans are sick of the same-o same-o with this crew.  Instead of throwing out a bunch of BS slogans and cliches from the podium and fighting with the reporters and the fans, these coaches should all STFU and go scheme some wins...

And maybe the players themselves should win? They aren’t 7 years old in some Pop Warner league. Maybe they aren’t as good as the other teams.

Serious question - If you replaced Ulbrich with a guy like Vic Fangio, or even in the extreme, Rex Ryan, do you believe the defense would be performing this poorly?

Look, I am wondering if you played organized sports. If my basketball coach saw someone out of breath during a game, he took them out and benched them and had them running laps the entire practice the next day with the assistant coach while yelling at him the whole time. The boxing matches I competed in were 3 rounds. I trained for a nine round fight so I would always have my wind. The only time it was acceptable to be out of breath was track when you were doing someing like a 4-40 and were running at full speed for like a qrt mile. So you know what, you be out of breath in front of your teammates. I was winded at times but I made sure never to be heaving for air. Leaving it all on the field doesn't  mean you are crawling back to your locker barely able to stand, it means you did everything you were asked to and more. That doesn't  include fainting from exhaustion. 

When I was playing, if you weren’t heaving by the time you need to come off the field, then you’re not working hard enough when you’re on it. That’s the whole point of rotations and having a bench. Hiding when you’re exhausted costs your team every time. Pro’s should get exhausted because they should be pushing themselves against other players who are pushing themselves. That’s how competition works. 
 

This continues to be an issue with how you are interpreting a portion of a press conference that has been taken out of context in order to rile up the guys who love low hanging fruit. Congrats, you bit.

And the “criticism” is so mild it should barely register as criticism at all. If he drops the next three games, then he’ll experience criticism. Compare it to the hailstorm of pure mockery Gase endured from the second he was hired, then through his weird press conference, and the jackhammering he took when the team sucked, and Saleh comes off as a true bitch here. Bob better beat the Steelers tomorrow. 

All of this.

Just remember: “it’s not the Catalina wine mixer”

Saleh’s new go-to nugget of wisdom when asked about anything performance- or Kapono-related 

Jets should provide have an on-screen interpreter on the lower left of the screen during Saleh pressers similar to sign language translators during political speeches

For God's sake, look at at any Pro Basketball player when he comes to the bench and tell me they are gasping for air. Enough with your BS.

Saleh is keeping the main thing the main thing.

Hes making sure no other man is holding our player’s pens.

Hes made it know that 100% is really only 40% and you still have 60% left when you’ve given 100%.

This is a leader of men.

100% of 0 is never 40% ... its not even 10%  ... however if you have given 0% you still have 100% more to give which if your max percetnage is 30% that would be 30%.

 

Saleh has more to prove than any other individual at 1 Jets Drive.

Point being.... The Johnson's simply don't sign experienced coaches.   

That’s because you have to pay for experience and doofus Woody has never had a HC in the top 10 salary tier

20+years of paying bottom dollar for bottom dollar results

Either one would be named HC by game 10.

Ok….. if Gase counts as experienced you're right.  SMH. 

Did the conversation went from no experiences HC would play for the Jets.  All I said was that 2 hires back McCarthy, a favorite said he would take the Jets job and only the Jets.  That we ultimately hired Gase and his sucking has drifted way off course.

What % is Q at when he is gasping for air

By Saleh’s Navy Seals math, Q should be able to play 100 snaps a game 

Most top DL play what 75 to 80% of snaps 

So if the opposing offense has 50 snaps, Q might be expected to play 40.  If in reality he’s only used up 40% and has 60% left, that means the player actually has 100 snaps in him.

So no way Q should be gassed playing in Ulbrich’s “keep everybody fresh rotation” unless his fitness is subpar 

Unless….Saleh’s 60% thing is….just….empty rhetoric

This might be the first time anyone has mentioned this, but our coaching staff is a bunch of clowns. 

Saleh is all talk, no results. Whitecotton looks like a fool for letting a player get in his face like that. Ulbrich is a tool for making a comment that could easily be taken out of context.

Just wanted to leave this here, because it doesn't seem like anyone is talking about it.

Id would be hysterical if Ulbrich said that quinnen is giving 100% on his snaps a needs rest.  And for a reporter to say, “Well doesnt that mean he still has 40% to give?”.   Hahahaha

Robert Saleh

Apparently less than thrilled to learn fans and media were critical of his defensive coordinator throwing his best player under the bus, Jets head coach Robert Saleh called it “bush league” to discuss the comments.

Jets DC Jeff Ulbrich responds to a question about whether he will consider more PT for Quinnen Williams. #Jets pic.twitter.com/NdIetAzmeH

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) September 30, 2022

 

Defensive coordinator Jeff Ulbrich, whose unit has been the worst in the NFL since taking over before last season took a shot at defensive tackle Quinnen Williams while meeting with the media yesterday.  When asked about Williams’ snap count, Ulbrich said “there are these critical moments in games, ‘Why is Quinnen not out there?’ You look to the side and he’s gasping for air.”

The comments obviously got the attention of Williams who took to twitter to re-tweet comments from Saleh earlier this year in which he praised Williams.  “Quinnen is in the best shape of his life”.

Prior to joining the Jets staff, Ulbrich had never held the position of defensive coordinator, sans an interim stint with the Falcons, and his group has been the worst in the NFL since taking the post.  Some would argue not the best time to go after your best player, but perhaps doing so is bush league?  Remember…positive vibes only.

saleh using a term like bush league to describe some valid comments of arguably their best player is not bush league.  the right answer should be something like "ulbrich mispoke about williams .  what he meant was that williams was playing 110%

Everything shows that Saleh and co. firmly believe that they are smarter than everyone else, to the point is not confidence but idiotic arrogance. That's why they feel they can say whatever they want without anything of substance to back up their words.

Real intelligence focuses on results and not vague slogans.

What he said and your take is as far off as possible.
