Gibbon Posted October 4, 2006 Share Posted October 4, 2006 refutes the claim???? is schelgel playing? is he 2nd string even???? who cares what tressel says,, proof is in pudding,, he was his coach for gods sake,, i beleive the fact that schegel isnt on field or even 2nd string, more that what tressel says about a explayer,, gee,, is that a hard concept? shoudl we start schelgel cause Tressel says he was a swell guy? Apparantly something still isnt sinking in. Let me try again. I never said that Tressell's statement about Schlegel meant that he should be playing for the Jets. I mentioned the statement because you or PeteNorth09 claimed that Schlegel only looked good because he played with Hawk and Carpenter and Tressell's statement proves that your (or PN09's statement) was at best uninformed and probably the statement of someone completely ignorant of Ohio State football. I believe that Schlegel should (and will) get the opportunity to play this season (soon) because he was drafted to be a run stopper and the Jets are struggling stopping the run. You seem to want to slam Schlegel as a bust for not playing and at the same time keep him off the field so you can call him a bust. This is a Catch22 and poor logic. To counter your claims that Schlegel hasnt shown anything in practice to be worthy of getting on the field I pointed out (notice this has nothing to do with Jim Tressell) that Schlegel plays the same position as three good ILBs with more experience and therefore probably doesnt get as many reps as those guys and therefore less of a chance to prove himself worthy of dressing and playing. I further said that (based on his being named practice player of the week) I believe that he will get a chance to play sometime soon (and that therefore he has been doing things to improve his position on the team during practice). I'm sure at this point you are thinking of some snyde point to make about the relative unimportance of "practice player of the week" and that Schlegel still hasnt been able to get on the dress list. To which I would respond by pointing out that he is a rookie and this weeks game will only be the 5th game of the season. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
