..Greene & Coples. Though he may not be lighting the world on fire, 50 yrds on 15 carries (against 1st string defenses
) is more than serviceable from your #1 back. He's showing that consistency that you'd hope for from a 1,000 yrd RB. For the ground & pound to really be effective, Greene doesn't need to be Maurice Jones-Drew. But he needs to (at least
) give you 4½ yrds per carry.. which is what he did last year, and it looks as though he's showing it again now.
Meanwhile in 2 games, Quinton's got 2 sacks.. 1 forced fumble.. and 1 blocked pass. His tackles have not only been timely, they've been down right arresting. He's 22 years old, and very raw.. but his physical skills resemble those of Pierre-Paul's. If you look at the measurable when JPP came out and Quinton Coples, the similarities are identical. I'm not saying he's the next Julius Peppers.. but in 2 preseason games, he's done more than 3 seasons worth of what was Vernon Gholston's entire Jet career.
..Wayne Hunter. My God, is there a worse RT in the league?! *Wayne Hunter* was trending world-wide last night he was so bad!! Can Vlad REALLY be that much worse.. because quite honestly, I don't see how that's possible. 13 other teams of the Jets opponents are going to be watching footage from last nights game, licking their chops. Hunter is lucky if he makes it till Tuesday on this roster, because after last night, something needs to be done ASAP.
..Tim Tebow. How in the world did this guy do what he did last season?! I know Tebow fans will look at his 40 yrds rushing on 6 carries throughout these last two games, as their beacon of hope in trying to make a case why he should start. But my God man.. a 35% completion percentage last night?
He was missing people so badly, the fans had a chance at catching the ball. I didn't think it could get uglier then when he overthrew Cumberland in the 3rd quarter.. but then that lame duck of a pass to a WIDE OPEN Hill for what would have been a guaranteed TD in the 4th?! -Pathetic!
Yes, he's playing with a 2nd sting offensive line and 3rd string WR's.. I get that. But when you throw the ball 25 times, you've got to complete more than 9 passes.. I'm sorry. It's not like the receivers are dropping them either.. these throws are way
off target. I'm almost glad in a way that he's been so bad over these last 2 weeks. It'll put any\all "QB Controversy" to bed, because Sanchez is light-years ahead of Tebow.
Awful, awful, awful. This SUPER SECRET Wildcat stuff better be the savior of this offense cause right now everyone stinks.
..the offense that they've been showing\running, has been deliberately vanilla. They are keeping this whole wildcat thing under wraps, to unveil for the regular season. Alot of it will depend on how they deploy Tebow. I personally think it will work, until other teams find a way to stop it. (which may take weeks
) The hope is that you can catch enough people off guard at the start of the season to jump to a 4-1.. 6-2 type record, and then hang on with enough wins at that point (even if you're .500 for the 2nd half of the season
) to finish the year @ 10-6, which should be enough for a playoff berth.
