ganggreen2003 Icon : (30 August 2015 - 07:50 PM) Any word on Leonard Williams injury?
azjetfan Icon : (30 August 2015 - 11:49 PM) He will be ready week 1. Just a sprain
Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 10:33 AM) so we whooped the giants ass pretty badly
Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 10:38 AM) bills cut fred jackson
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 12:29 PM) We got lucky with Williams
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 12:30 PM) Hes looked like a beast as well, so we need him healthy. Hes gonna be a future all pro
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 12:31 PM) Our offense can be competent this season
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 12:33 PM) Zac Stacy was a good add
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 01:46 PM) I'm surprised Freeman was cut, I thought he was a solid backup center. Guess they like Wesley Johnson better
Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 01:58 PM) our offense is passable. we should put up 14-17 a game average
Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 01:58 PM) should be enough for our Defense. our d-line is nasty with wilk, rich, snacks, and now williams
Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 01:59 PM) out MLBs get picked on in coverage though. davis had a rough game
Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 01:59 PM) our Cbs are way too good. cro revis and skrine. plus mcdougle looked solid. when milliner comes back, him being a dime back could be huge too
Jetsman05 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 02:24 PM) 17 points a game is "passable"? If we average 17 a game this season, we won't win more than 5 ball games.
Jetsman05 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 02:24 PM) Needs to be 20+
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 05:33 PM) Our offense should be better than its been in years
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 05:34 PM) which wouldn't take much
Jetsfan115 Icon : (01 September 2015 - 12:03 PM) another ex jet going to the pats http://theredzone.or...ms/Default.aspx
Jetsfan115 Icon : (01 September 2015 - 12:04 PM) our defense should allow an average of less then 14 a game IMO. If we can average 17 a agme I think we can win 9-10
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (01 September 2015 - 12:25 PM) Jace Amaro was put on IR, torn labrum.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (01 September 2015 - 12:26 PM) That sucks, I was looking forward to him at TE
ROBJETS Icon : (01 September 2015 - 07:24 PM) Labrum tear....definitely out for the year. Its not a bad surgery. I used the sling for about a week before I ditched it completely. Supposed to use it for a full 6 weeks. You can get away without it but just have to be careful not raising or moving your arm much and no lifting of pretty much anything. As far as fully healing ....6 mon ths minimum but for lifting heavy and full contact sports I wouldnt trust 6 months
ROBJETS Icon : (01 September 2015 - 07:31 PM) Still not that bad of a surgery on a pain scale. after a few days it mostly just aches like hell. ice and keeping your arm still is important. sleeping is major hard for the first 3 weeks or so. You wake up in pain a god bit. Id be dreaming and jerk my right arm up or move it wrong or lay on it wrong and wake up in major pain. still I liked t better without the sling than being completely immobile with one arm and healed just fine. He will come back from it fine
ganggreen2003 Icon : (01 September 2015 - 08:37 PM) sucks we lost Amaro for the season

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 September 2015 - 09:47 AM) No suspension for Brady, what a joke
Jetsman05 Icon : (03 September 2015 - 12:26 PM) I don't think it is a joke but f*** him.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 September 2015 - 04:15 PM) f*** new england
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 September 2015 - 04:15 PM) he still was behind the balls being deflated
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 September 2015 - 04:16 PM) he authorized those 2 employees to do that to the footballs
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 September 2015 - 04:16 PM) he is a diva so f*** that classless organization
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 September 2015 - 04:21 PM) it's especially sickening living in the middle of CHEATriot country and listening to these assclowns up here make excuses for their POS QB
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 September 2015 - 04:21 PM) and that classless organization
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 September 2015 - 05:13 PM) who's watching this game tonight?
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 September 2015 - 06:09 PM) INT and then he fumbles it away

That's because they have Maroney...and because Leon is more talented than Faulk...but being more talented than Faulk isn't hard to do. Faulk is a role player used perfectly in the system the Pats set up for him. The Jets should find an appropriate role and system for Leon as well...because no one can deny he is amazing in the open field...but as a feature back you aren't always going to get in the open field. So you get a feature back...and then create certain situations where you try and get Leon into the open field.



Thats exactly my point. Faulk is a third down back, Leon has shown that he can be much more of that so I think its dumb to just label him as a specialty player as I stated earlier.

The point i'm trying to get across is not that Leon is the hands down answer at our RB position. He's not Curtis Martin we all know that. However I don't think he's just a third down back and he at least should get an opportunity to prove whether or not he can handle the load full time.

It doesnt matter. We're not saying leon will not run for 100 yards. Faulk ran for 100 yards but that doesn't means he's an every down back. Leon is the classic 3rd down back. Small, speed, good hands and ability to run and make people miss in the open field. He couldn't run in the middle against the 5th best run defense in the league. Not in the NFL. He's not the very down back period. We love leon but we're asking for someone bigger and run in the middle and in open field and make people miss. We're never going to a super bowl without a true RB.

How has Leon shown it? I never seen him pound it inside? Only time I see Leon do something positive is when he's in the open field...and that is a great asset to the team...but I just don't see a feature back in him.

My point about the Patriots is they aren't debating if Faulk can handle the load because they already have Maroney. We don't have anyone like Maroney...so we have to wonder...

I only brought up the Pats because I was trying to show an example of what a typical third down back is and that Leon was much better than that. Obviously Maroney is the man there and I guess my example was a little confusing.

Everyone always says little backs can't get it done, Leon was decent between the tackles from the games i saw. He's not going to "pound it inside" I know that, but does Brian Westbrook pound it inside? Warrick Dunn? We don't know if Leon can be as good as them I'm just saying he deserves the chance to show whether or not he can be. He's much more talented then simply a third down back. We could use him more like Reggie Bush.

Best case scenario I think would be to draft a bruiser like Tony Hunt and have split carries.

Also I like this Forum because people actually debate things rather than just saying "Leon sucks and so do you" I'm glad I found this place.

I've seen Leon pound it in the inside, he always seems to get yards going up the middle, because he can hide behind the linemen and has strong legs.

Yeah this forum is pretty good about presenting reasoning for opinions...it is refreshing to see isn't it!? Glad we got another guy who presents facts to go along with opinions! Welcome...

At any rate...I think Warrick Dunn is actually pretty good between the tackles. He really can pound the ball. Westbrook not as much...but he is capable of taking it inside. Now, obviously it is hard to make a judgement after one year. It is possible Leon can handle all 3 downs...but right now I tend to lean towards he cannot.

i think that leon definetly needs to get bigger in the offseason. once he puts some more muscle on then he'll be able to run through some of those tackles that pinned him down at the line of scrimmage. i think that if we give him time, he'll be a "tiki barber" kind of runnin back.

in my oppinion i view leon as a poor mans reggie bush which isnt an insult in any manner. I think that if we can get a bruiser like duece mccalister i think Leon will have a lot more success as the brusier will wear down defenses and allow leon to make big plays in the 2nd half of games. If we can get a bigger RB in who can carry around 15 times a game while leon gets another 5-10 carrys a game leon will flourish very nicely.

Against the Pats in the playoffs he really struggled, as in the game against Buffalo at home. Early on he can do what you say but later in a game, as he is worn out, he struggles to take advantage of a worn out D as he can't really push the pile. There was a reason why Houston and Barlow were used almost always down at the goalline and on 3rd and short situations because Leon struggled to punch it up the middle when it mattered most.

Thats because our offensive line sucks and fails to open up holes. Moore gets blown off the line like every time. And Brick gets pushed around too. Our line has to play better.

this is why we do not need to address RB in the first round....and like many of us have been saying Bush or Hunt would be prefect in the draft. Leon is not just a third down back or a featured back, but just a football player.....look at what the saints do....is reggie either?? not saying leon has those skills, but the saints have a custom fit for reggie...lining him up all over etc...we need another RB, but leon is good enough that it doesnt have to be a 1st rounder this year we have too many other holes....im hoping for hunt!!

FINALLY!!!! A REAL BIG BOY!!!

i dont think houston can stay healthy enough we need to draft a guys to split the carries with washington


I don't think Houston can become somthing amazing, but the only times he got injured as a Jet was before training camp in a car accident, and when an player landed on his knee while his leg was extended. I don't know many athletes who wouldn't get injured from something like that.

Im actually starting to really like Hunt. He did do a good job during the senior bowl week. He is the type of RB that wears a defense down. He would be a nice pick for us, he may become a first round pick thouhg, since his stock is rising alot.

what we need to draft is somebody that will create the holes for him to run through

After the Senior Bowl, I'm thinking his stock skyrocketed. Hes our best option for a late round RB still.
