    Re: The Jets......(A thread of laughs!)

    Kyle Mini-Me Williams hasn't been a bust.  He just had clearly limited upside when he was drafted late in the first round, where he didn't belong.  Ryan can quietly get rid of the sub-average player after this year.

    Quinton Motivation Coples was a bust ever since Rex Ryan grounded him one day as a rookie in practice, verifying the knock on him in college.  Ryan knows how to get the worst out of certain people, and Coples apparently is one of these.  Nice combine stats, tho.

    I came up with each of these middle names the day after draft day.  I've also got it in for Dee Shoulder Milliner (ok it's his ankle this time, but he's still getting splinters from sitting on the bench) and also for Sheldon's Shoulder, two great players with a particularly predictable downside.  Add Calvin Stone-Hips Pryor to that list.

     Did you feel really stupid when Sheldon was DROY?



    Sheldon's shoulder was reinjured twice in 2013, first on September 22 against the Bills, then in December against Cleveland.  I didn't say that Sheldon doesn't play well when he's healthy.  I'm saying that he has the same chronic shoulder that he injured in college, that these two injuries in 2013 were predictable, that he plays a position where his shoulder is going to keep getting injured in 2014 and that he's going to shy away from contact when he plays injured.

         Hey Paul, haven't you heard?? Rex Ryan says that Dee Milliner, a/k/a the best CB in the NFL (just ask him), a/k/a "The Franchise"(as dubbed by his teammates due to their perceptions about how important he is to their "D"), doesn't matter. Why? Because Rex Ryan says that his defense will be great without a great corner: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2014/08/12/rex-ryan-my-defense-doesnt-require-a-great-cornerback/" rel="nofollow">http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2014/08/12/rex-ryan-my-defense-doesnt-require-a-great-cornerback/" rel="nofollow">http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2014/08/12/rex-ryan-my-defense-doesnt-require-a-great-cornerback/"


         Yes! According to Rex, who needs Milliner! So...let's see. Milliner (high ankle sprain), the heavily criticized Dimitri Patterson (quad, calf, ankle), and third round draft choice Dexter McDougle (torn acl) are all out...but Rex says his "D" doesn't need a great CB. Okay, Rexie. But doesn't it need at least an average one?? 


     


         LOL!!!

    Re: The Jets......(A thread of laughs!)

         This from a NY Daily News article on the Jets' CB dilemma:

    Ryan’s ingenuity will be tested again thanks to a problem created largely by his organization’s own doing. The Jets reek of desperation now that injured top cornerback Dee Milliner’s high-ankle sprain that had him in a walking boot on Monday might force him to miss the start of the regular season and rookie Dex McDougle is out for the season with a torn ACL. Dimitri Patterson is rehabbing seemingly every body part below the waist.

     

    The Jets trotted safety Antonio Allen out at cornerback on Monday, an outside-the-box move that has the Ryan Family fingerprints all over it.

     

    “It’s not a panic situation,” Ryan said of missing three of his top four cornerbacks.

     

    Ryan’s system has always centered on his players’ skill sets, a fluid and flexible approach that has turned him into one of the game’s best defensive minds in the past 15 years. The recent spate of injuries may have prompted the schematic change, but the problem was always bubbling under the surface due to general manager John Idzik’s ultra-conservative cornerback approach in free agency.

     

    The Jets flirted with a few of the top available free agents this offseason, but didn’t land any. It was a mistake that has been magnified now.

    “We don’t look back with any regrets whatsoever,” Idzik said Monday in a manner that made you just want to borrow Wonder Woman’s lasso of truth. Or a polygraph.

    Idzik had the resources to sign quality veterans like Vontae Davis, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Antonio Cromartie (on a cheaper deal), or yes, even Darrelle Revis. The Jets currently have more than $20 million of salary cap space, according to NFLPA records.

    “I don’t think immediate spending translates into winning,” Idzik said. “I think responsible spending translates into sustainable winning.”

    Fair enough, but Ryan’s derriere is on the line this season. If the Jets’ secondary becomes the turnstile it appears to be on paper right now, it could ugly, leading to Ryan’s ouster.

    The notion of firing Idzik, too, if the Jets flop this season is myopic idiocy, but his offseason misstep shouldn’t be swept under the rug. He missed a hanging curve by about three feet.

    Now, Ryan is paying dearly for it.

    Re: The Jets......(A thread of laughs!)

         Apparently, Jests rookie TE, Jace Amaro, has been disappointing:

    "What they’ve gotten so far instead is a guy with unreliable hands who comes off as both passive and overwhelmed by the transition from the Big 12 to the NFL.

     

    The Jets were hoping for their own version of Rob Gronkowski, but that seems like a pipe dream if Amaro keeps up this aimless pace.

     

    Rex Ryan tried to send the message nicely last weekend after a couple of halfhearted displays in the preseason opener, saying Amaro should go watch old tapes of Mike Ditka to see what a tight end can do when you marry desire with Amaro’s skill set.

     

    But Amaro brashly dismissed Ryan’s suggestion Monday, telling The Post “I’m not going back 30 years to see how Ditka played” because Amaro’s ultimate goal is to be imitated and not do any imitating himself.

     

    Bad move."
