 Line coach Karl Dunbar said the coaches didn't tailor many pass-rushing schemes for Richardson because "he didn't know our defensive scheme last year. A lot of plays weren't called for him to make plays, but he was so athletic that he made plays on his own.


...


On the flip side, he probably will draw more attention from opponents because of his rookie success. He could be a marked man. 

"Bring it on, man," Richardson said. "I ain't worried about that. It's football. Only so many ways you can block a 3-technique, so bring it on. Hell no, I'm not worried at all. I can take it on with the fullest confidence in myself and this defense."

Hate to rub it in, but Milliner was never going to stay on the field.  Sorry to the "he only missed two games in college" crowd.  I wish we would've passed on him, but since we're stuck with him, I hope we get at least 8 good games out of him this year.

That article on sanchez was clearly written by someone who watched a few highlights (and lowlights) but basically never saw the man play. 


His mechanics and arm strength might be better, but how about his pocket presence, decision making, ability to read a defense and ability to look off defenders. You telling me all that was affected by his torn labrum?

"You lose games at cornerback and quarterback"

Beginning in Week 2 the Jets face:  Aaron Rodgers, Jay Cutler, Matthew Stafford, Philip Rivers, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. 


Joe, you happy now you made that deal with the devil?

The lesson learned here is simply that durability needs to take a higher percentage of the "total evaluation of CBs" Jets pie moving forward...

I don't know if he is jerking my chain, my brother told me he seen a petition to fire Idzik, but my brother is a hardcore Giants fan, so I just laughed.

I'd rather there be a Tebow link than a link to that shtpile article by Costello.

@Ceifus Hornswoggle 8 good games would be an improvement over up-and-down Dee from last season. 



Also, he missed 3 games last year and isn't even guaranteed to miss one this year (although I think it'd be wise to let him miss Week 1 if he's still not healthy), let's not panic quite yet. I wouldn't go around patting yourself on the back just yet.

@NYCPEinGermany I think you are too used to the NY media bashing the Jets.  Other teams have some optimistic articles this time of year.

@kniff Exactly, the history and genetics of the players have to be be weighed more heavily, b/c it doesn't matter if you are great, but if you cant stay on the field, "shamoota!" Other teams do, do this, but Idzik always tries to gamble with older injury prone players and is now gambling with rookies and their propensity for injuries. I will take a good player who can stay on the field over a great player who can't dagnabbit!

@kniff Does it, though? How many games did Geno miss to injury last year? Winters? T-Bo? Richardson? 


Dee rolled his left ankle, which has never been hurt previously (his *college injuries were: two shoulder surgeries, sports hernia, knee scope and right tibia stress fracture). 


I think the team takes fair gambles after doing their homework. Dex's previous injury was shoulder-related, a non-contact ACL tear really isn't anything to do with durability, that's just part of NFL life.

@kniff Definitely time to see what they have.... next man up time.

High ankle sprain is one of those nagging injuries

Where in my post did you glean anything to suggest that? 

Facts are a pesky thing.

@UncleJoesJetFarm @kniff


Falcons 5th rounder Marquis Spruill tore his ACL last week. Played 50 games at Syracuse without missing one for injury.


Ravens 4th rounder Brent Urban tore his ACL last week. Missed four games in four years in college.


Jaguars 4th rounder Aaron Colvin tore his ACL last week. Played 38 games in college without missing one for injury. 


49ers 3rd rounder Brandon Thomas tore his ACL last week. Started 26 games for Clemson without getting injured.


It's been one week, three to go. There will be more torn ACLs across the NFL by players who got hurt before and those that have not. The Jets drafted 12 players so it's not shocking they got hit by the bug that hits every team at some point.

@UncleJoesJetFarm Hey, know who had "the history and genetics" of an injured player before he got to the NFL? Damon Harrison. 

Brendan

@Gavin Buck Fingers crossed on Lankster, I've always liked him more than Walls. He is so physical out there, he seems to align well with Rex's mindset on corners. 

Brendan

@Gavin Buck That has to be satire. Right? Please tell me it's satire so I don't die a little bit inside. 

Brendan
Brendan

@Pat d If a player rushes back, you're right. That's why I fully endorse letting Dee rest a little bit more and banking on the fact that the team can handle the Oakland passing attack without him. 


I don't want him to rush back like Coples did last year, I feel that slowed him down for weeks longer than getting 100% then playing in games would have. 

Brendan
Brendan

@Ceifus Hornswoggle Yeah, but you're comparing Dee to the Norse God of Bud Heavies and Steak. That's just unfair.

Foles looks like the real deal but I wouldn't be surprised if Sanchez does good in Philly.

@DarrolRayFanClub 

Brandon Thomas and Aaron Colvin both fell in the draft because they were injured...

@Brendan @Gavin Buck Steiny on Twitter had some good figures on Lankster's contribution in 2012...


In 2012, 59% of @EllisLankster21 snaps were on the outside. On 28 targets gave up just 13 catches & had 2 INTs for a 41.5 QB rating


Fingers, toes, everything crossed

@Brendan @Gavin Buck I thought so as well, but there was a response op ed to it on their site this morning, so maybe not. It is a ridiculous argument as I think Rex has the 2nd best % win-loss record in franchise history (though that does maybe say more about state of the Jets in the late 70's to mid-90's)

@a57se And the Falcons gave up two draft picks to move up and get Spruill. We can play this game all day.

@Gavin Buck I just can't take articles seriously that do stuff like this (when discussing Rex the "player coach"):

While it’s true, that player after player have come out and said they love playing for Rex, I haven’t seen any results on the field.


"Despite the overwhelming evidence that this is a fair and honest description of Rex, because he hasn't won a SB, I'm calling bullsht." 


Misinformation on Rex's extension, using "many analysts" as a legitimate talking point (sounds like someone we know), "He we go into 2014," ignoring the fact that the team's former GM screwed the pooch leading to a top-heavy and pretending it was Rex's coaching that lead to mediocre results the past three seasons, acknowledging Rex being one of the top Jets coaches ever while still saying that's meaningless, acting like Rex isn't a leader (wut), Rex has never said a player can "do no wrong" (or behaved as such), insinuating Rex acts the way he does because he craves the spotlight (by all accounts, Rex has always been this way, he just never had a NY media market to suck up every last drop of his personality), Rex's teams are notoriously great 2nd half teams as a direct result of his in-game adjustments. 


If this is a serious article, Jetpress should put this guy in timeout to think about what he's done.

@hitchhiker Eh, stuff like this isn't torturous to me. It's so laughably bad I can't get worked up over it. If it was printed in the NYDN or something, I'd probably feel differently, though.
