THE BARON Posted October 25, 2022 Share Posted October 25, 2022 I've decided I'm going to refer to this last game as "Black Sunday". Losing BH and AVT in one game is beyond bad, It is downright cruel. After absorbing this for a spell, it took me back to the issue that most of us were considering even before the season started. That being, QB. As amazing has BH has been, he none the less still occupies the position of RB circa 2022. We all know how much the 2022 NFL values ball carriers. And, there is justification for that position no longer being valued as it was several decades ago when the centerpiece of an NFL offense was the ball carrier. AVT has also been fantastic, even when moved to the outside. Regardless, he was drafted as an interior lineman and will do his best work on the inside. Once again. few teams if any are drafting interior lineman very high in the draft. Even fewer are putting much cap space into their interior offensive line. We, all of us know that the tasks of passing the ball and preventing the other team from doing the same is the way a contemporary NFL team goes with the the grain as dictated by the rules. Any other general strategy is nothing short of adopting the methods of swimming against the current. It is a flawed doctrine. One that puts a team at a disadvantage before they even take the field. Considering this, we see teams dedicating generous cap space to the appropriate positions. LT, CB, Edge Rushers and, above all... QB Losing BH and AVT is only a season killer in the sense that it brings the Jets paramount obstacle back into focus... QB. The Jet offense was leaning on the running game and showcasing the brilliant skills of BH as a save for the lack of production at the prime NFL position... QB. And, now that the Jets will be taking on a team with a coach that is well known to confound shaky QB's. And, they will be doing so without the assistance of BH. Now, we'll get even closer to the all encompassing problem of not having a bona fied franchise... QB Again... It hurts to lose BH and AVT, but with medical technology and the apparent work ethic of those two splendid players, I'm confident that we'll see them back next season and after some time on the field, back to top form. But, the Jets will still be lacking a... QB THAT is what Jets fans should *REALLY* be worried about. There wont be any problem for me watching Wilson get further exposed this Sunday. I just hope the GM is watching and planning. 2023 draft will be here around the same time that BH and AVT will be well on their way back. 3 2 1 1 10 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
