    I thought for sure this week we would be talking about a trip to Dallas not this. But you have to move on and get ready for another run next year. Lets hope they get this CBA fixed sooner then later for everybody’s sake. The NFL is a money machine and while i do agree some things need to be fixed. They can’t ruin a good thing too.
    I have to root for D. Willy. Great football name.
    GO JETS!!!!!

    Window of opportunity closes quickly sometimes.Hopefully there are a couple of players that will put us over the top next year.Pass rusher and safety are key. A few observations…Rex said he wouldn’t kick if he won toss after the Pats killed us on Monday nite game. It’s not Madden…take the ball and hope we score first is the better move. If it was Manning or Brady or Brees they call that loose ball an incompletion and not a fumble advance for a TD. Take-aways and Tackling must be emphasized on D…Offense needs to give the keys to the car to Sanchez and let him open up spread and hurry up O. Need to fill Jenkins shoes and need a Mauler at RG…Let’s do this again next year and finish the mission. J-E-T-S…JETS…JETS…JETS…!!! Pray

    Ray, from previous posts, sure, hindsight is, and always will be 20/20, both pro and con. But the point I try to make, and will always stand by it is, play calling and executing that play (which by the way is practiced over and over and over again) has to go hand and hand, there are times the play called in turns out not to be the correct one, just as their are times the correct one is called in and not executed very well, agree? That said, do we really want to jump on the OC (no matter who it may be) ALL the time, with that logic we also have to question why the QB, or the RB, or the WR is not let go for not doing their job and not executing plays on a continuous basis. It just has to work both ways.

    Ray, cont…On deferring that opening KO. I know Rex has done it on a consistent basis throughout the season, I personally don’t have a problem with it when they are at home, it is on the road that I do have a problem with. Why? All you need to do is take a look at both games at Pitt this year and it will tell you all you need to know. I think there is a time and place for it, I just don’t agree that the time and place is on the road, you should try and start fast on the road if not for anything else, you “can” be in a position to take the crowd out early. That can be an advantage in some places even more then in others.

    64tom, I think you are putting to much into the phrase that Rex likes to proclaim what he wants the Jets to be, and that is a “ground and pound” team. Well heck, any team wants to be just that, especially in the colder weather. I have said this early and often this year, I believe the strength of this offense is in the passing game, or at the very least, for those who I know will disagree, it is easily 50/50 considering the WRs we have on this team. So really, you can’t just look back on every TD that didn’t happen from with in the 5 yd line and say we should have run it in their 4 straight times, because that is only true when it works. Me? I just want the points, I don’t care how they get them, we both know there will be 2nd guessing..

    tom spicer, from previous post. Yes Tom, I did mean that we have gone to the “playoffs” for three years under Shotty, to the championship game twice. I personally believe that is a pretty good track record especially when yo consider the fact he has had no less then 3 different QBs starting during his tenure, numerous different RBs, and WRs, as well. That is why it is difficult for me to place the blame entirely on his play calling. This last game was 1 or 2 plays, or penalties, away from going to the SB, any Jet fan has to agree with that, so why all the finger pointing at that one single aspect of the entire body of work? Why? Because it is an easy mark, but certainly is not the single biggest reason we haven’t reached our goal.

    64tom, I hate to ramble on, but re: your assessment of Rex and how undisciplined he is, I would say to you, that may be true, but I will take the guy every time over someone like a Caldwell in Indy, or even a BB in NE where you know those emotions are almost exactly the same but they just don’t show them. Rex hates to lose, and he sure shows it, BB hates it even more, but just don’t show it to the press or the TV cameras after a loss. I believe he makes up for that shortcoming, if you even want to call it a shortcoming, by his Xs and Os on game day. To me, that is what is most important. What he has done in his first 2 years as a HC with a rookie QB, is almost unparalleled, there is no denying that.

    Tom Spicer, re: Nagta from the Ravens, and I am only going by the CBA that is in place now, he WILL be franchised if an extension is not reached, just as David Harris will be if an extension is not reached with us. Any team has that option for any player who becomes an UFA. As for Asomuga (whatever) out in Oakland? What I think happened their is that Al Davis figured out he over payed this guy so much he can no longer continue to pay him and is hoping he will accept a pay cut and stay. I don’t see that happening. I would love to see him lined up opposite DR. Is that possible? Sure. Is it probable? No.

    What the Jets need to do is sign Harris like tomorrow!..Keep schotty for 1 or 2 more years, doesn’t make any sense for MS to learn a whole new system. ( But Schotty please.. run the ball when you are on the goal with Greene or Conner..especially against a “D” like Pitt ) And if there’s anyway to land NA from Oakland that would be the greatest 1-2 corners in NFL History. Please draft a DE or and OLB that can rush the passer..( For the love GOD )…I love SH and BE but we can’t keep both. We get big Jenks back and JL..CAN’T WAIT!!!…

    Once I saw it was Ed Hochuli as the referee, I knew we lost. He is the king of controversial calls, and Pitt gets them all. Even the calls we did get, only hurt us in the end. The Pitt catch that was reversed actually cost us time off the clock.

    On the issue of taking the ball first, we defintely should have, when you kick off, you allow the opponent decent field position to start the game, rarely do you pin anyone deep on a kickoff. If we take the ball (and take decent field position) and do not score at least we have an opprotunity to possibly change field position, pin them deep. Obviously each team gets that opprotunity each half, but since we start slow and finish strong, I think it is more important in the first half

    Hearing a lot about the opening coin toss and deferring . . Rex wants to play it the same way all the time but a coach has to see all factors and Rex did not. He loves to defer and let his vaunted defense take the field first. By electing to defend first you set up the POSSIBILITY that the opponent will have a long drive (which they did) and your offense will get cold and stale on the sideline. Especially your second year QB who is a slow starter anyway. Now if you take the ball and your offense has a 9 min. drive your defense won’t care, they’re gonna come charging out after the other guy anyways. And if you have to punt now both of your teams got out and warmed up. OK, none of this matters as much in the regular season, but this wasn’t.

    Like I said in praising Ray’s post on the other story, scjoe, it’s not “second guessing” if you’ve been saying for at least 2 yrs we should run more inside the 5. Of course, I don’t literally mean we should run every single play there. But the problem with over-hyped under-achievers like Schotty is that they score out so low that if you don’t really underscore the issue, they might not put any pts on the board at all! The games we lost this yr and last are very, very similar in terms of our low-scoring O and if we hadn’t gotten Holmes this yr, it woulda been REALLY embarrassing! I don’t get a HC who doesn’t hire his own OC right off anyway, so Rex’s fear of getting rid of Schotty, if that’s what it is, reduces my respect for him doubly.

  16. By Christopher on Jan 26, 2011 | Reply

    scjoe, the fingerpointing and calling for Shotty’s head has to do with inconsitancies through the past 2 seasons, not just the Pitt game. Shotty isn’t a horrible coach, he is not a bad coach, but he makes mistakes in key situations. In a Superbowl or Bust year someone has to be held accountable for not making it, don’t they?

    anyone who says we had a better than expected year is just trying to comfort themselves, because we were suppose to win it all, snce training camp, since “soon to be champs”. Rumor has it, it now says “soon to be chumps”, because that is what we are to the rest of the NFL.

    Ask Ralph Macchio, “prove what, that we can take a beating”?

    Its foolish to close the barn door … If I played Rotheisberger(sp) again. I would ask , “how many times has he escaped the pocket to his left?” Does he throw as well running to the left? I might also consider a What If scenario for at least two dozen possibilities of having the ball inside the the ten in the last five minutes.. If the situation is so unique that nothing applies, let the quarterback call the play. The worst thing you can do is let the defense have time to set up. My own opinion is in that situation it was important the Jets to impose their will with running plays. That would have made a second score easier. Finally firing any of the coaches is assinine. They got them to the title game.unlike 28 other teams.

    Shotty Panics:
    1. Called for a QB spike with over 2 minutes left.
    2. Left a big play up to Sanchez “call what you want”.
    3. Time out had to be called on that goal line debacle vs. Pitt.
    He is an excellent QB coach, not as an OC.
    He tries to spread things around too much going away from things that are working.Numerous times the last 2 years Greene was beginning to steam roll when he either took him out or began passing. WR screen works 1 out of 10.

    Love that Conley’s back, nothing against Weatherford but one of these times I think this kid is gonna be our punter. Also love that this shows that some guys don’t get forgotten, as happened with Cook this yr, and that maybe some other guys who showed flashes of promise, like Jackson, Reamer, Warren, Allison, and even Clowney (that’s right, GaryC) may be back for another try. I have to believe the salary cap will go up and probably by a lot, given Goodell’s dollars-before-all approach to running this league, but it’s always nice to save a few bucks. A Greene/McKnight/Conner backfield, which I can see working out very well, would cost us very little for the first few yrs.

    scjoe wow..! i agree w/you on alot of what you posted. Regarding M.S, i posted all the time to be patient with this kid, he will be our franchise Q.B!! The cold weather games, he put that to rest. The accuracy that everyone micro complained about is starting to go away, incompletions and dropped passes are part of game. With 16 college starts when drafted, it was growing pains with him to learn against the best defenses in the NFL. I like what Mark stated after the Pitt game, that everything was in slow motion for him that he could see/feel the offense before the play was ran…Now, its time to let Mark loose on offense, you postted the other day if it would be a step backward if we changed OC? It would be, like MS learning Schotty ..cont

  22. By Westcoast GangGreen on Jan 26, 2011 | Reply

    …cont hands and play calling had to be held back somewhat, until MS got a grasp of it and how to play better in this league. Now Shotty doesn’t have to worry about another QB, he has his franchise QB, i want to see what they can do together with no holding back…MS likes Schotty and they built a chemistry. With the C.B.A in the way and not knowing who coming back on offense, the JETS must keep MS happy and focused.. And let this combo grow together Also about the openning kick-off we should have started with the ballon offense. Doesn’t matter how much they warm up pregame, when you sit for a 9min drive thats hard for our offense, Pitt kicked off back to Jets it was 7:08 thats almost 40 min in sub o weather.. cont

    Someone said we need a RG, our RG was Brandon Moore who should be playing in the probowl. Aslo, if KJ comes back, don’t use him as a starter till the games count. Let that knee get well and stay well for a while! If he played Sunday, the outcome might have been quite different. Losing Woody also hurt against Pitt. From a story I read on the AA, Cromartie wants to be back and doesn’t seem to want to test the waters. The JT interview after the game told alot. He said if the Jets even want him back. The Giant players saying they’d play for Rex hands down. Now Rex is coaching another probowl, and will be around more great players. There will be guys checking him out, talking to the Jets there, and realize, being a Jet is a good thing!

    Coaching, the good, the bad and the ugly.
    The good/Awesome! Rex’s defense is much more flexable than anyone thought it was. The Colts/Pats playoff games were quite shocking defenses. No team in the NFL could/would try those defenses, but we had the personel to pull it off.
    The bad, being thickheaded at times. Insisting on doing things that aren’t working. Mostly the running game, and zero blitzes.
    The ugly, waiting till halftime to make adjustments. This week was the epitome of it all. O and D made great adjustments this week, but way too late on D. The O moved faster on it, but still too late. But Shotty ignoring the score/clock combo, even with Rex yelling, is truly heartbreaking.

    Ugh, onto the draft.
    Needs, any LB that can cover a TE! Inside, outside, who cares, anyone! This is our achilles heal. We need another ST. ES finally did get JL’s position down, but it took a bit. Poole is so-so. DL really needs a stud. Yeah, KJ says he’ll be back, but we can’t count on him. CB should be ok. OL, Vlad may have been drafted as Woody’s replacement, not sure. Slauson grew into the job, but we still ran behind Moore most of the time. QB-RB, we have all we need already on the roster for next year. TE, maybe a large blocking TE who can catch-run as well. WR, this is painful. We had 3wr’s plus BS all year. But we lost Woodhead because of that. We need 4 true WR’s and BS. SH or BE will probably be gone, and that’s a shame.

    scjoe, I have no problem with the Jets KO when they win the coin toss. I prefer to get the ball in the 2nd half anyway. And you are right about 1 play away. If they tackled Brown on the 20 yd line instead of letting him return it it to the 41 yd line they would’ve got the ball back and they were hot and the Steelers’ D was tired. The Jets would’ve won that game. Amazing 3 guys over ran Brown and didn’t wrap him up.

  29. By Gritzski on Jan 27, 2011 | Reply

    Many valid points here, but I am calling our biggest downfall at kicker. There is a kicker named Sandro DeAngelis( nicknamed Mr. Consistent), and I think the Jets need to look this guy up. He is playing in the CFL, and I can’t believe the NFL hasn’t scooped him yet, so lets be the ones to do it. Too many missed Folk f.g.’s lead to no confidence in your kicker, which lead to poor decisions having to be made. A kicker with a leg could have made a big difference last weekend, and this whole season. And, i agree, lets not all point the finger at Schotty, this loss was a team effort. One less pocket breakdown could possibly have been the game changer.

    Yeah right, alot of teams needed a HC this year, how come nobody wanted schotty? scjoe, you don’t think for a second that schottenheimer favored daddy’s draft pick all year long and dogged shonn greene, the more productive back? I just hope Greene still has confidence.

    That bieng said, about schotty’s preferential treatment to tomlinson, I think you’re right that’s not the only problem. I think the age at D-line, really showed in Pitt. They played there most inspired performance, all year, in Foxborough and they were gassed. I say forget a safety we need, NT, DE, OLB. I also think the D-line could’ve been stronger if they had Ropati in the line up.

    scjoe, re this new marathon debate you’re having with Spicer about Schotty, let me weigh in from another perspective. We’re often told not to gripe about Rex ’cause he’s 20-12 and he’s gotten us to the AFC Championship 2 out of 2. We’re told not to obsess on Sanchez’s stats ’cause he plays better in post-season and almost pulled out 2 championship games. But when Schotty can’t get us 300 yd games passing, can’t get us TDs in the 1st quarter all yr, and can’t play simple smashmouth football at the goal line even with everything all the line, every possible excuse is dragged out. Can you blame folks like me for wondering if it’s really all about something else — Rex’s cowardliness or cluelessness on O, Schotty’s dad’s pull, or whatever?

    And by the way, scjoe, when you turn most of the league’s fans against you, you’re also out there all by yourself when the refs turn against you. Several folks in the sports bar where I watched the game Sunday freely admitted that it definitely looked like the refs were throwing the game to the Steelers, and most of them added, “Good, I hate the Jets.” When I tried to tell them that the same thing could happen to their team, like many Seahawks fans feel it did in their Super Bowl vs. the Steelers, many said, “I don’t care, I’m just sick of hearing about the Jets and their fat coach who’s never won a Super Bowl but talks like he’s won ten.” Nice goin’, Rex! When Sanchez talks after the game, he sounds like the coach and Rex like the kid.

    64tom, you know that I respect your opinions here as much as any ones, but what it comes down to, no matter how we put this difference of opinion into perspective, I happen to believe, very strongly, that the players and the execution are a larger part of what happens on the field, or should we say don’t happen on the field, then any play calling can possibly be. I don’t see any way possible that this difference of opinion can play itself out as long as Shotty is still the OC. If and when he is replaced we will then get a gauge on this whole issue, maybe not right away, but eventually. That said, I would be very surprised to see an offensive machine running up and down the field because at the end of the day it has to fall on the players.

  37. By scjoe on Jan 27, 2011 | Reply

    westcoast GG, 64tom read this one as well, it applies to our discussion. West coast, you made an excellent point about Shotty holding back a lot of the playbook over the past 2 seasons with a rookie QB, this year probably not as much as last year, next year probably not as much as this year, and I think that point should answer a lot of the questions pointed toward Shotty. Last year, and even early this season, I think Shotty, and Rex as well, went to that “manage the game” syndrome until SH came back, and although I can’t say there was overwhelming improvement by the offense, I think there will be if everything remains status quo. Change is not always the answer. (see our current regime LOL)

  38. By scjoe on Jan 27, 2011 | Reply

    64tom, about your statement “Shotty can’t get us a 300yd game, can’t get us a TD in the first quarter all year” First off, I think the inc passes and the dropped passes and the penalties have just as much to do with that then anything else . Secondly, re: the 1st quarter points, I would be shocked, and I mean totally shocked, if Shottty completely changed his play calls after that 1st quarter in each and every game this season. So, if it was in fact the play calling, that is exactly what he would have to do to compensate. Do you see any logic in that point? Again Tom, lets take a good look at how those 1st quarter plays were executed.

  39. By IRA on Jan 27, 2011 | Reply

    This debate about Schotty is crazy. Bottom line Sanchez has made progress in year two and you want to keep that chemistry together. If Keller catches that ball this would be a moot point. They still had a chance to win and would’ve if the KO coverage was good at the end and the D forced a three and out.
    My biggest ? is why wasn’t there a spy on Ben all night?

That being said he’s a damn good coach. Warts and all. I’ve been talking about the talent drain on this team for a while now. It will be interesting to see how they reload this thing for another go.

    64tom, I hear you about the penalties in that game, I also hear you about the fans from most other teams copping the attitude that they do toward Rex. I certainly don’t condone all the talk, never did, but I will stand by my statement that he more then makes up for that with his game day Xs and Os. Had he talked the talk for 2 years and accomplished NOTHING! I would think it is very, very old and needs to stop , one way or another, but that is not the case. Further, although I didn’t agree with a lot of the refs calls, I certainly do not believe it had anything to do with Rex and his bravado or any of the players like Cro, and Scott etc. Just that they missed the calls, it does seem like they have missed a lot of them this year for us, but

    cont..that may be because the Jets are the team we watch and pull for more then any other, they become much more visible then lets say when we are watching Tenn, or Balt, or Minn. I just find it hard to believe that the officials flagrantly called the game against the Jets, not in this day and age.

    In the 1ST half of the STEELERS game, the STEELERS OL, TEs and WRs TOTALLY dominated the JETS defense with their **(BLOCKING)**. Like KEEP writing and telling you people, OFFENSE starts with ***(BLOCKING,BLOCKING,BLOCKING)***. And BLOCKING is what the STELLERS offense did better than the JETS defense in the 1ST half.

    JETS needs for the 2011 season:
    1. The JETS will need to get a (NOSE TACKLE) that WEIGHS a MINIMUM **(350 to 360)** POUNDS NOSE TACKLE to replace (KRIS JENKINS). The need a HUGE body in the MIDDLE to occupy at LEAST 2 of the OL.

    2. On OFFENSE the JETS need a REPLACEMENT for **(DAMIEN WOODY)**. DAMIEN WOODY get INJURED every year and will NOT last an ENTIRE season. The JETS MUST get a REPLACEMENT for **(DAMIEN WOODY)**.

    Forget thee crying over the Pitt game, the Jets only played half a game and you can’t win the playoffs playing only 50% ! jets organization already moving on with these signing, even though they are minor and more than likely play no impact on next season’s actually team. The Jets needs are huge, the last thing we need is to change the system. Personally if it were feasable, I’d like to see Rex and Schotty heading out of town! Jets need to trade some of our older players for draft picks and rebuild. Big Jenkins is done, too many injuries and the jets D will have enough holes to fill.. No one wants to even discuss the pro’s and cons of Mark Sanchez, so i won’t bother. He’s not the answer for this team. Just my opinions. See you at camp! c

    Guys, if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, etc. Ira, what’s crazy is a team with Santonio Holmes, Braylon Edwards, Ladainian Tomlinson, and Shonn Greene that can’t score a 1st qtr TD. wayne, tell STL how they can’t ask Bradford to learn a new system in his 2nd yr. scjoe, I watch just about every game at the same time at this great sports bar with 32 screens, so I see what they give Brady and what they don’t. Obviously, Schotty and especially Rex have done many good things, but when Schotty loses another big game next yr by doing everything but run the ball inside the 5, don’t say I didn’t warn ya. And if we’re 4-6 at that point, it’ll be Rex on the hot seat and if he’s gone after 3 yrs, MS will have to learn a new system anyway.

    jet fan tom, still a little early yet on draft,will be watching senior bowl this week, we also don’t know yet who will be resigned.I have been looking at some mock drafts,some have jets taking Baldwin, huge wr from pitt,some phil taylor huge tackle from baylor.Me personally and this is nothing that no other jet understands we need a front seven dominator who can put pressure on quarterback.I used to go to the combine here in indy, but haven’t the last couple of years.as the draft process continues I will state the player I want.You never know which player might fall. jets are picking 29th.

    Is there any question that Folk needs to go? Put aside the field goals that he missed, the man cannot put a kickoff past the 10 yard line. Think about it … our defense was studly when we had the opposing team within their own 10 yard line … but had limted opportunities to do that after scoring because of folk. that killed our momentum all year long.

    Man, I’d love to go to the combine, GaryC, hope you get to go this yr. The thing about picking D guys, which most of us say we should do, is that the problem of pass rushers taking yrs to develop comes up again. If Rex and the front office are still on this SB-or-bust thing next yr, that might mean we’ll trade for or sign a pass rusher instead of draft one. Then again, Rex claimed a few wks ago that all of last yr’s picks will soon be big players for us, so maybe there’s a change in his thinking. Maybe we need the same kind of aggressive approach in the draft to get the next Suh that we showed in getting Sanchez. Can’t see drafting a WR unless we really do plan on trading J-Co. Hey, where’s that 6’8″ WR from West Virginia we tried last yr?

    jet fan tom, now that you got me thinking about draft,remember early in year I mentioned kerrigan of purdue, but I believe he will be gone by time jets pick.Also the safety position this year is weak,so maybe even though I am not a fan of his, cromartie might have to be signed and moved to safety.keep an eye on Powe of Mississippi, very athletic at 340 pounds and you might move Pouha to end.Still jets need more draft choices then what they have and tannenbaum is going to have to be very creative to acquire more.Jets have more holes than people think and not enough picks to solve them.

    “More holes than people think and not enough picks to solve them” — sad but true. We have a few guys on D who, per that New York sports press hype machine, aren’t nearly as good as claimed. I look forward to the full text of Mr. T’s interview but I’m obviously encouraged by his talk about keeping SH, BE, and BSmith, though the last one isn’t nearly as big a deal to me. Also intrigued by the quote about taking “a long look” at Woody, T-Rich, and Jenks, which almost certainly means they’re not at all priorities. Those guys were great but we obviously need youth there and elsewhere. I don’t envy Mr. T his job but that job is to build a stronger, younger team, not to keep fan favorites when their time has come or there are better options.

    jet fan tom, it is not the same , I was able to get peter king, john clayton, gil brant even talked to heimerdinger and also a few player autographs, now they all have their entourages where you can’t get near them.

    I respect all my fellow Jet fan opinions most are good points..Simple fact is your all making to much of this lose Schotty this Rex that give it a rest please..(we) (lost) this game pittsburg (didn’t win) it..1st and foremost if Sanchez threw on 1st and second down early and offen and the defence played all 60 minutes its a whole different game and on to dallas thats a fact instead as usual having to throw on 3th down in our red zone a no brainer blitz and pick 6 cost us that game…BTW how did the ground and pound work out guys so quell that noise as well you run when least expected same with the pass thats how you beat Pittsburg.. I’m very very sure all the Veteran fans out there will agree we put both halfs together its a win not a loss

    CONT. I for one do not I repete do not want to start all over with a new coaching staff or even OC .Add in what may happen with the CBO and who will still be here player wise, whats needed most is to add to a already very good team making it one game from the big dance with the injuries and setbacks we’ve endured 2 tears back to back yep tears its no typo..This team in place with the right pieces will be Monster on the road or at home so Schotty Rex Mike -T and company together one more year is how I see it to get back without starting over again

    MJV, no denying we need some new guys and they gotta execute. But what did you make of that story that we actually passed quite a bit more in the red zone than we ran? Don’t get me wrong, there are certain passes I really like even inside the 5. But what I got from that story is what I’ve been saying, that we haven’t really TRIED ground and pound. Even after games we won on last-minute passes, Rex kept up his “I’d rather run the ball” rap. But he doesn’t seem to care that Schotty clearly would rather NOT run the ball in the red zone. Does this make sense to you? Are they actually not that thrilled with each other? I don’t really care what the answer is, I just know you can’t get to the SB with no 1st-half pts and a lousy red zone attack.

    Okay, here’s the offensive problems in a nutshell. We have no pulling tackle. We have a 40 year old (hall of fame) FB. The Jets released the drafted FB. The TE that can block (84) is rarely used unless the WR/TE we use needs a blow. #6 is behind on the slants, throws high, and doesn’t even look on quick hit plays. He has poor mechanics when things go bad, forgets to hold the ball with 2 hands. McNight can’t dress b/c DL depth is terrible. #6 also throws the worst deep ball I’ve ever seen.
    About the D…The ball hit Wilson in the face, had he looked a split second sooner, he would have taken it to the house. Problem with him is he’s used to playing man with great safety help. I really would like to see an upgrade at that position. A hitter

  63. By Jet Fan Since '64 Tom on Jan 29, 2011 | Reply

    I’m not sure if I’m saying the same thing about Wilson as you are, Row, but that was not an easy INT that he missed, many players wouldn’t have made it. It was thrown incredibly hard, like all of Ben’s passes, but at very short range and he just didn’t have time to turn his head and get his hands up. Anyway, it’s way too early too tell about him. As for McKnight, he’ll see plenty of time next yr given our largely unimpressive running game at times and LT’s lack of speed after about Week 8, and I think Conner will take over for T-Rich. And while I’m still iffy about Sanchez’s arm strength, he throws far from the worst deep ball I’ve ever seen. Sometimes, like in the comeback games and on the PIT TD to SH, it looks really good, sometimes not.

    You have it all wrong, especially with Sanchez. He has all the arm strength to win a Super bowl. The issue with the long throws has been touch. He has grown into his position in two short years and now is on the verge of being a top ten and then a top 5 QB. He will get the long throws as he masters touch as long as those plays are called. He is no longer the weak link. If we address the most most glarinhg weaknesses then we will get there. We need to deal with Woody & Shaun’s age. I don’t think we can count on KJ .We need a Wilfork type in thet middle .Most important we must get DE or OLB that can be 10 sack guy that every team we play

    Continued from my previous a comment. Again I’m talking about a 10 sack guy that every team we play has to plan for. I don’t think Tannenbaum is the guy to make those picks. Let him stick with the free agents. We have missed some great opportunities in the draft . There are too many to list. A good example, Kyle Wilson. He didn’t even show a glimpse that he will ever contribute anything to this team. When he was on the field , he looked like a deer caught in the headlights . He couldn’t even catch a punt cleanly let alone get any yards. We need to see if there is anybody we can trade that will give us back any picks better than the 5 or 6 round. Finally kudos to Rex, no coach gets more from his players. They would run into a brick wall for him.
