‘Our Time’ Honoring Matt Slauson on Monday

Posted by Randy Lange on April 13, 2012 – 4:54 pm

Matt Slauson will be one of the guests of honor Monday night, April 16, when Our Time, a non-profit organization that has been helping children who stutter for over a decade, will hold its 10th annual benefit gala, “Tackling Our Fears, Defending Our Dreams,” at NYU’s Skirball Center for the Performing Arts.

Our Time continues annual tradition of celebrating an accomplished person who stutters by honoring Slauson, the Jets’ starting left guard.

“It’s truly an honor to be recognized by Our Time,” Slauson said. “As a person who has battled stuttering my entire life, I feel it’s important to help kids that are afflicted with this difficult problem. Whether overcoming this impediment completely or simply becoming more confident when speaking, I want kids who stutter to know they can be successful and accomplish anything they want to.”

Our Time will also bestow its first Advocacy Award to longtime supporter and Chair Emeritus, Budd Mayer. And the event will bring out some big names and professional artists for performances and presentations, including Rachel Dratch, Edie Falco, Victor Garber, Mariska Hargitay, Richard Kind, Jesse L. Martin, Matthew Modine, John Oliver, Ron Rifkin, Amy Ryan and cast members from “The Book of Mormon.”

For more information on the event, you can reach Our Time at 212-414-9696.

Curtis Checks Out Canton

At the beginning the week we brought word that Curtis Martin had selected Bill Parcells to be his presenter at his Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremonies on Aug. 4. That came as part of Curtis’ visit to the Canton, Ohio, shrine to tour the Hall of Fame and meet with staff in preparation for his enshrinement.

You can go to the Pro Football HOF site here to read a short story on Martin’s visit and also watch a video in which Curtis talks about his career and his upcoming big day.

    as someone who occasionally doesn’t even know how to put his own thoughts into words, I’m happy that Slauson is going to be able to take part in this. I really hope he can step it up this season and become what we need him to become.

    Matt Slauson really is a underratedmplayer. Played the whole year with a bad shoulder and never let on about it. What you would call a true good character football player..

    If Slauson misses the early part of the season or can’t play at full strength because of his shoulder, some of you guys who didn’t believe in him early on — and that includes Joe Namath — are gonna see how valuable he really is.

    Slauson is a good player last year I was ragging on him until after the year was over & I found out he played hurt the whole year. When the season was over he had surgery on three different things in the shoulder / arm area. With Slauson arm /shoulder, Mangold high ankle sprain & Moore hip surgery all back healthy this year. I think if we replace Wayne Hunter we can have the best O line in the NFL.

    If we get Braylon Edwards back, all our WR issues will be fixed. Braylon and Santonio: our top two receivers. Jeremy Kerley is a great option at slot and being our no. 3 receiver. He proved that towards the end of the season. Patrick Turner is definetly a great no. 4 option. Then of course there is the receiving tight end Dustin Keller and Jeff Cumberland. Those are a lot of options. Just need Edwards and a contract.

    Slausons a really good player, has potential to take a big step in the near future. Definetly keep him as our RG.

    Lets all get real! Slauson may be a “good” player but he certainly isn’t anything remotely close to being elite, he is replaceable, and at that position quite easily I might add. IF Decastro is taken in the 1st round, that would mean one of two things, 1- Slauson will be in the mix for the starting RT spot. 2- Slauson will go to the bench as a swing B/U at both O line spots. One nice draft scenario would be Decastro in round 1 and Lamar Miller in round 2. If you are REALLY thinking about ground and pound, which has been routinely advertised, that would go a long way toward accomplishing it. If you draft WRs or safety’s, instead, you are making yourself look foolish. Don’t just talk about! Do It!

    I think it’s fair to say that no Jet fan really cares who they draft as long as they can make a difference. Haven’t had a Jet player really surpass my hopes and expectations since David Harris and Jonathan Vilma. In fact its been pretty bleak since then. I couldn’t care less if they give up other draft picks as long as that player makes a difference. I think that guy this year is Ingram or Decastro.

    Yeah, Spice, and your post also underscores why we shoulda thrown Tebow’s $1.2 mil at Satele or spent the entire amount of bucks we gave Tebow, Landry, Schilens “and last but certainly least” (as John Heard said in CUTTER’S WAY), O’Dowd (that’s just for Bennett) to get Nicks. And by the way, there goes Tanard Jackson, a much better S than Landry, to the Redskins, whom for some reason he prefers to the allegedly storied Rex Defensive System.

    I just wanted to say – I just got done reading an article about Alabama RB Trent Richardson, the BEST article I have read in a long time. Upon reading it I was instantly remided of our own HOF RB Curtis Martin. It had absolutely NOTHING to do with football. It appears that Trent Richardson is going to escort a 16 yr old girl from Hueytown , Albama who was diagnosed with luekemia to her senior prom. This is the kind of story the NFL should be plastering their home page with – and we sure could use more stories / guys like that. With the stock that teams put into player character this kid probably just helped his draft value even more. He prob wont be a Jet – but hats off to T Richardson for being a great person.

  14. By RickieNewYork on Apr 14, 2012 | Reply

    From what Im reading and hearing the Jets are all in to get Melvin Ingram in the 1st round – even if they have to move up to do it. I love the pick and no doubt hed be the perfect fit, but….. without a 4th rounder I say if we have to give up either of our other 2 top 3 picks then forget it. If we miss out on Ingram, Upshaw and Barron then we take Decastro – already being compared to Steve Huchison whos easily the best guard in the past decade. We nned those other picks, for guys like Safety Harrison Smith in the 2nd (I WOULD MOVE UP FOR HIM IN 2ND IF BARRON IS GONE) or D Martin RB, then if by some miracle he falls to us in the 3rd, boise de Billy Winn could bookend M Wilkerson to make the front 3 the most dominating in the league.

    Like usual I got 3 posts in a row, its hard for me to get on here except late after work. I also really really like WR S Hill if he fell to us in the 2nd – people knock him cuz of the system he played in – but last time I looked the last 2 highly drafted WRs from that college ( Megatron and D Thomas from Den ) both turned out pretty darn good. I give up lobbying for free agents – every time i do another team signs them, e winston, kevin smith – and now safety tanard jackson who was a free agent for exactly 2 days lol. I agree with what some of you have said – bring back Braylon and wr is no longer an issue with Kerley in the slot and chaz schillens as a 4. All I can say is I cant wait for the draft! M Ingram cmon down!

    I know you guys have heard the saying where there is smoke there is fire well. I keep seeing stuff like this on websites I read. “According to SI’s Tony Pauline, there is increasing chatter that the Jets’ “primary strategy” for the draft is to acquire South Carolina DE/OLB Melvin Ingram. Ingram is a terrific scheme fit for Rex Ryan, who coached up a similar player in Adalius Thomas with the Ravens. Pauline suggests the Jaguars at No. 7 as a partner if New York trades up. The Jets would almost certainly have to get there, because the Dolphins (No. 8) and Panthers (9) will like Ingram, too.

  18. By Tom Spicer on Apr 14, 2012 | Reply

    RickieNewYork, I read the Jets would have to give up there 1st & 2nd round pick to move up to #7 to get Ingram.

  19. By Tom Spicer on Apr 14, 2012 | Reply

    If Tanahill goes before 16 great. Also any corner back or DT that goes before 16 is great as well. We have no intentions of going that route & it only makes better players fall to us. I hope Tanahill, Claiborne, Kirkpatrick & Cox all go before we pick.

  20. By MIKE on Apr 14, 2012 | Reply

    If Jets move up to get Ingram, they would have to get ahead of Jax on this one. If Barron is targeted, than moving i front of Dallas. I like both players but they would mortgage the future if its Ingram and not so bad if its Barron. EIther way you know defence is what they will probably go with.

    Hate to bring up the Giants and there success but it seems pretty evident that every year they draft a DL or DE and ignore some of there other holes with there top 2 picks. They don’t have outstanding DB’s or LB’s but they win. Lets take a page out of there book and get a pass rusher at 16.

    If you ask me only New York Jets Fans would make a federal case about the signing of a backup quarterback.I am talking about Tim Tebow.Any team with play off aspirations could use a quality backup quarterback.As Tebow and Sanchez both know the backup quarterback is only a play away from being the starting quarterback.The Texans had to start their third string quarterback long before the regular season was over.Other teams were even forced to start Quarterbacks they picked from the waiver wire.The way I look at it Tebow is better than any quarterback we could of signed from free agency and he comes with a cap friendly price.He also provides us with about the best wildcat package in the NFL.This is a very good signing.

If DeCastro is as good as y’all say he is, how does he last to #16?…..They’re in no mans land…..Not good enough to make the playoffs, not bad enough to get big difference maker…START TRADING BACK….BACK!!!!!!!!!!

    Nothing would upset me more the Patriots getting one of those good D-lineman or pass rushers. May be a bit negative but you just know BB in NE can turn good players into great players at that position. I really hope Jets go D with first 3 picks this year.

  26. By Jet Fan Since '64 Tom on Apr 14, 2012 | Reply

    walt, you’re forgetting 2 things about Tebow and if anything most folks on this site are being remarkably cool-headed about this pointless move: (1) He’s not just any backup QB, he’s a backup QB whom some fanatics will cough up 100K to spend a day with, and (2) He’s a terrible QB. Spice, what the Jets have to do is learn how to hold onto draft picks and deal smartly enough to get, say, both Ingram AND Barron in this draft. It’s gonna be pretty hard for us to pick up those 6 or 7 starters we need in the draft if we barely have that many picks, much less only 2 picks in the first 4 rounds.

  27. By scjoe on Apr 14, 2012 | Reply

    Wayne, If Decastro lasts to 16 it is for one reason and one reason only, he is a guard! Some of the scouts and some of the “experts” can be wrong, but not all of them. Yes, he is that good. As I said, if Decastro is the pick Slauson would be in the mix for the RT spot, or a swing B/U which is needed, so, it is not a question of fixing everything all at once, depth is a need too. If the Jets are going to run their well advertised ground and pound a road grader is needed at LG, Decastro is one,Slauson is not. He is probably more suited for RT. That would upgrade two spots and that is even better then just “doing their job”. Just “doing their job” unfortunately will not get it done.

  28. By MIKE on Apr 14, 2012 | Reply

    One thing is a major concern is half of the mock drafts have Jets taking Upshaw at 16 but never before 16. The other half have him going late in the first. What is up with that?

  29. By Broncos LAX on Apr 15, 2012 | Reply

    As a Broncos fan I’d like to apologize to Jets fans for the mania that is coming to town… Denver pursued Peyton Manning because the Denver Broncos had become the laughing stock of the league. We had to run a spread college offense to have any success because Tebow cannot throw accurately or read the most basic of defenses. Every passing play gave Tebow a short read and a deep read that is it because he could not handle anymore. Sanchez is far from perfect but on his worst day he is a better QB than Tebow I sincerely hope that he figures it out and is driven this year so you guys don’t have to be subjected to terrible football! Don’t mean to stir anyone up here just a fellow football fan offering my 2 cents.

  30. By SCfromNY on Apr 15, 2012 | Reply

    For Tebow to be a quality backup or possibly a starter he needs to be treated like a QB. Give him some quality snaps not just in wildcat packages. Last year to my knowledge for some reason the QB position with Sanchez was given less reps than most teams so it would be easy to add extra reps for Tebow without taking some from Sanchez. With poor mechanics ingrained over many developmental years I feel Tebow will always be limited.

  31. By Jet Fan Since '64 Tom on Apr 15, 2012 | Reply

    I’ve got an interesting update for the Jet Anecdotalists. You know who they are, they’re the guys who see Brad Smith pull off a long run or two vs. a terrible team or two and forget about the dozens of times that Wildcat plays that look more like busted plays stop a Jets drive just as the team is getting momentum and, even more importantly in the long term, destroy the rhythm of Sanchez, a guy who as a QB has about as much rhythm as AC/DC does as a band. Well, it seems Demaryius Thomas, one of the best young WRs in the NFL and the guy who turned Tebow’s 20-yard floater vs. PIT into an 80-yd game-winning TD, doesn’t think TT can throw. No reason he should, but now we’ll hear from some on this site how he doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

    1st pick Dave Decatro Guard Stanford the best guard prospect to come out of college in a decade. Has been compared to Steve Hutchinson & a young Alan Faneca. 2nd round Lamar Miller Running Back Miami the perfect complement to Greene if he gets a big hole he is gone. 3 Mohamed Sanu WR Rutgers 6’2 215 great possesion WR goes over the middle makes the tuff grabs great hands & a good player opposite Holmes. 4th round trade our 1 of our 6th & 1 of our 7th round picks for a 4th round pick to take Jake Bequette OLB Arkansas he had 5 1/2, 7 & 10 sacks in the last 3 years. He is a good pass rusher it says he is bad in coverage. Pace & Thomas are great vs the run Bequette & Maybin will be used just to rush the passer.

    5th round Frank Alexander OLB Oklahoma 7 & 8 1/2 sacks these last 2 years. 6th round Aaron Henry Saftey Wisconsin is good at covering man up. 6th round Eddie Whtley Saftey Virginia Tech has good coverage skills & played some corner for the Hokies. 7th round Desmond Wynn Rutgers Guard & 7th round Blake DeChristopher Tackle Virginia Tech. Over the next week & a half I will post different drafts 1 with us taking each of the following with the 1st pick Ingram, Floyd, Richardson, Barron, Coples & Upshaw.

    64, lets not blame Tebow for what is going on around him. Lets blame it instead on this capitalistic society we live in today. This guy is just a football player, his spirituality should not factor in to it at all. Tebow the man, or Tebow the football player is not trying to capitalize on it, society is! Now, is Tebow a great QB or a great football player? Of course not, not at this point anyway, but that is not my point. As he stated recently, the prayer after a score is something he has been doing since high school, it was only blown out of proportion after he became a starter in the NFL. Blame it on the media, blame it on society, don’t blame it on Tebow.

Moving him doesn’t either. He’s a known quantity at RG…..I believe he played G at school. That doesn’t sound like way to fix RT prob……………………Walt, Tim Tebow the best QB in free agency?

    I don’t know if Ingram is worth giving up a 1st or 2nd rounder to move up a couple spots. His short arms might be an issue. I would much rather move up 2 spots and draft Mark Barron rather than have the Cowboys get him. If that happened, we would be stacked at safety, that and along with re-signing Jim Leonhard. Leonhard, Barron, Smith and Landry. That’s more than good enough for me.

    Wayne, Slauson played both o line positions in college. Rex even experimented with him at the tackle position early on. He can play RT. Not only can he play, he is an immediate upgrade to hunter. The right side is less demanding then the left. Slauson’s strengths (for lack of a better term) is his pass blocking as opposed to his run blocking. That is why this move makes sense. If another RT is found, maybe later in the draft and he beats Slauson out for the starting job, so be it, Slauson will be the new Turner, depth is needed as much as anything. Bottom line, UPGRADE UPGRADE UPGRADE!!! If he is not there at 16, moot point!

    Spice, love round 1&2, two of “my guys” as for #3? Sanu will never be there., Iloka (S) out of Boise may be though. At the bottom of the draft, rounds 6&7 plus the compensatory picks, you will be hard pressed to emerge with a starter, that is almost a given, especially with this team, a B/U or two would be good, SO, the best thing to do there, in my mind, would be to select the best available punter “AND” kicker (Butler?) that is the position where you have the best possible chance of obtaining a “starter” and it is a need as well. The best P & K available at that time would be a definite upgrade to what we have now. ST are such a big part of the game, yet always overlooked on draft day.

    It will be hard to look back in ten years and see the Jets pass on Decastro who will be an all pro, and if we had the assets to draft the best player than Decastro is our guy, but we don’t and pass rusher has been an area of major weakness over the past 4 years. The JEts will take the best pass rusher at 16 available.

    Spicer, I like those choices on O but the problem with not getting anyone of consequence in FA is that it leaves too many holes open. I pity this team, for instance, if it waits till #6 to draft a S. But let’s see what you have up your sleeve for those other mocks. scjoe, I wasn’t criticizing Tebow for people who are crazy enough to spend 100K to hang with him, I was criticizing the Jets for inviting such a circus into Florham Park instead of focusing on building a winning team. joe, if you liked my post about Tebow and Thomas you woulda loved my other one praising Broncos LAX for his honesty but Randy didn’t run it, I guess because I called Rex a name. I thought I did it artfully but I guess not. Anyway, Rex’s still a big liability on O.

  46. By Broncos LAX on Apr 16, 2012 | Reply

    It’s a great PR move as it brings a lot of media attention… But being realistic the Jets are probably the most covered team in the NFL. Rex is a great coach but is also very bold and loves stirring the pot. Fact of the matter is John Elway and John Fox as well as Mike McCoy and Brian Xanders all saw and believed that Tebow will never be an QB at this level. Tebow will give the NY Jets everything he has but he will never be a Franchise QB. So if the Jets goal was to get media attention and to play for Barkley then that can work but in Sanchez you have a guy who can make NFL throws he just needs to be pushed and bringing in Tebow is the wrong way to push him IMO.

    As a Bronco Fan I would have been very happy with the Broncos receiving Drew Stanton for Tebow as he has more upside as a QB. That 4th round pick Denver recieved would go better to building through the draft and Mcilroy I think can be a great QB. In the Draft I can see the jets going with Barron, Juron Criner, and even Vontaze Burficit all would be good fits for you guys with the one ?mark being Burficit.

    Of course my opinion is going to be thrown out buy Tebow fans who will blame everyone and anyone except for Tebow for his mistakes and shortcomings. That is what comes with Tim Tebow. The worst part is Tebow is a guy you want to like… but Tebow fans take it to the point almost where you want to hate him… In Denver real Bronco fans love what Tebow did for the team and love the guy but everyone is borderline hating of him because his fans are so ridiculous and will ridicule anyone to make Tebow look great… I do sincerely hope that Mark Sanchez becomes the Sanchize so you guys arent subjected to Tebow football…

    Wayne, Thats right i would be shocked if DeCastro gets past 12 but you never know. The Jags are going to take Ingram now that they have signed Lee Evans. No need for them to waste a first rd pick on a WR. So the Jets will have to find another PR and i don’t want them to reach for any of the names we have talked about since Feb if they stay at 16. Either trade down and take a Jones or Branch i really think Upshaw is risky and take the best avaliable player. If you have to move up [Mr T can't help himself] a few spots to grab Ba
    it. And don’t rule out a CB at some point.
    GO JETS!!!!

    Yea SC Joe it is a joke about kick-offs…but more of a joke you are. Wellington Mara been dead a couple of years. It was john mara. You people ought to get your facts straight before blurting out garbage. Your worst than Cimini or Serby…junk writers that like to make up things and stir up controversy.

    Oh lordy…need my coffee…the first of MANY mock drafts…

    anyone can move up in the draft to select one of the top college players but what about selecting a player who starts in the sixth or seventh round,that is the real gem of drafts,maybe that says why tanny continues to trade picks,he doesn’t feel comfortable by going with the word of Clinkscales when you get past the top 100 draftees available.funny seeing rex at the net game the other day.you would think with the draft coming up he would be out checking prospective draft choices,he must know tanny will be trading them away.

    Slauson is what every team should have. A mauler…A guy who gives it everything on everyplay. He may not be a household name but I love this kid. To play with a bad shoulder and other injuries and still played well…it says alot about this kid. NYJ…stay at 16…no trading up….Ingram/Upshaw/Barron…and if they are picked before 16….M.Whitney looks like the next JPP…

    I think a lot of the conflicts that you describe, Broncos LAX, were on display yesterday at Yankee Stadium, where Tebow was booed. As I’ve said before, I myself don’t boo at games but I could understand those Jet fans booing. As you can see from this site, Jet fans are a pretty well-informed bunch and I think many of them if not most see through this obvious publicity stunt. And since I’m someone who believes we need a new stadium, owner, GM, HC, and about half a roster full of new players if we’re ever going to be more than an also-ran, I have no problem with fans expressing their opinions in person if it’s gonna hasten the day when all that happens.

    As far as giving up draft choices to get that one big player I am going to repeat myself. Don`t do it. This is no way to build a team. Unless this player is the second coming of Revis, you just can`t afford to give up draft choices. Especially when you have done nothing in free agency. Hopefully the Jets get what they need in this draft and go on from there.

    Trading away your first and second round draft picks (along with potentially more than those two) to get either Ingram or Barron would be stupid. I support drafting Barron, but not that much. Just be patient and take the best talent available at 16 and 47. Barron could slip to 16. If he does, take him. If he doesn’t, there will be plenty of other talent available at other need positions. I’m telling you all, Zach Brown is going to be a big playmaker in the NFL. If Barron’s gone at 16 and he’s there I would take him.

    KW65Fan, EXCUSE ME! See, I am not a Giant fan, I don’t keep up with who there owner is these days like you do. If you asked me about the NY Jets owner I could tell you he is Woody Johnson, not “Andrew” Johnson. But as for the “garbage” I blurted out? I will stand corrected on the name, not on the issue. So if you feel my point is garbage, maybe you should stick to those flag football games as well.

    JET FAN SINCE 64 TOM, BRONCOS LAX you guys are right on target.Guys I HAVE A SLIGHT TENDENCY (LOL )to go out it with some of the JET DREAMERS LIVING IN A FANTASYLAND OF SB VICTORYS TO COME ON THIS SITE.John Elway CERTAINLY HAS A FOOTBALL RESUME THAT DICTATES IF ANYTHING HE KNOWS THYE QB POSITION .None of the DREAMERS EVER BRING up the fact as to the reason if TEBOW was so capable why wouldnt ELWAY at least kept him there as a BACKUP (Denver was millions under cap )and ELWAY STILL WANTED TO GET HIM OUT ASAP

    Tom JET FAN SINCE 64 i saw that at the stadium as well .Tom (to me at least )JOE WILLIE was and still is the man .When the face of the JETS comes forward and publically admits bringing this guy (TEBOW )HERE is nothing but a publicity stunt that set the entire stage.

    BRONCO LAX read thru some of these posts and its beyond funny to the point of PATHETHIC.We have people on this site WHO TRUELY BELIEVE THE JETS CAN WIN A SB without a PRO BOWL LEVEL QB UTILIZING A 2 QB SYSTEM. Despite the fact that in the SUPER BOWL ERA ITS NEVER BEEN DONE THE JETS OF ALL FRANCHISRE GOING TO DO IT.If PAYTON is healthy for you guys (and your D plays at last years level )I WOULD VENTURE TO SAY YOU GUYS got to be right up there to win it all.

    the jets are talking about moving up for a guy who is 6’1 and 260 -265 pounds who runs a 4.6 to 4.7.Lawrence Taylor he isn’t.Ingram they say is very versatile to play all positions,sounds to me he has weaknesses their trying to hide that is why he is constantly moving around the defense.Norwood who came out of South Carolina a couple of years ago I liked, this guy,I believe will get overdrafted.

    Not a Giant fan either SCJOE…just common sense if you live in New York and read the papers and if you read my comments…i agreed with you about the kickoff scenario. If you knew how to read, Wellington Mara was a pioneer owner for many years just like out Leon Hess…and further from the truth of our “Showman” Woody. Andrew Johnson was also a President way back when…or did you miss history too.

    Yeah, GaryC, the Wildcat’s really been setting the league on fire since we let Brad Smith go. I couldn’t believe all those Wildcat plays in the playoffs and the Super Bowl, could you? Right now the Wildcat lives in exactly one locale, Florham Park. robertp, where’d you ever get the idea that this owner, GM, and HC know how to build a team? I’m not even sure they care about building a team. They seem to care more about wasting a couple million bucks to let Jet fans watch Tebow play a bunch of positions other than QB, all worse than any lifetime player at those slots could play them.

    KWfan..Wellington was a “pioneer” owner? Who cares? What is your point? I simply made a comment about the absurd notion to end kickoffs. I typed in Wellington instead of typing in John. The idea is ridicules no matter what name I typed in. As for knowing my history? That could be one of the dumbest comments I have ever witnessed on this site. Which other “Andrew” did you think I was referring to? If you are just interested in stirring the pot, I suggest you find a more relevant issue.

    sorry to the fans who pay the big bucks, you will be paying more for less,no kickoff returns,no hitting the quarterback,no more bump and run with the receivers.players and owners receiving more and more and fans getting less and less for their buck.

    kw65, I think scjoe typed in Wellington by mistake because he was unconsciously thinking of the biggest joke owner in NFL history, which is pretty much was that Mara was until the Giants won the SBs in the 1980s. And yes, Wellington was a lot like Hess, a man who showed a spurt of vision at the start but later succumbed to a paralysis-like failure to see where his team and the sport of football itself were going. But the Giants made big changes on the field and in the FO to right their ship while we seem to prefer shuffling deck chairs on the Rextanic.

    jet fan tom, remember history, the nfl appointed George Young to be player personnel man because the Maras had a dispute amongst themselves,we could only wish that the nfl would care about the jets as much.

    walt’s April 14 comment on a certain backup QB makes way too much sense to have been included with other comments on this site ….

    That’s right, GaryC, I’d take any ten people off this site for director of player personnel over the guys we got now, who have an uncanny knack for picking “projects” that either bust completely or disappoint, and I include Mark “but he only started one yr in college” Sanchez as a candidate for either of those categories if he doesn’t step up this yr. One reason I know there’s a loser gene in a lot of Jet fans is the way they CONSTANTLY make this excuse for MS, as if it doesn’t also severely indict the Jets for picking someone with so little playing experience. If you don’t like watching a QB make college mistakes in his 3rd yr in the pros, pick a 4-yr starter like Parcells told ya to!

    ’64 Tom, put any QB behind last year’s OL and they will struggle. I do believe it’s way past time for Sanchez to step up and stop making silly mistakes, but he’s not a bust. Busts don’t throw 26 TD’s and run for 6 TD’s on a mess of a team like last year’s. Disappointment…I’ll buy that.
