Chris Johnson signs 2 year deal - http://nyjetsfan.com...showtopic=38339
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 11:34 AM) He was at the Knicks/Nets game yesterday
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 11:36 AM) Idk about the numbers, I read an article that said that the Jets offered a "attractive" deal to Johnson and that it was always a longshot that he would sign yesterday, but the Jets believe the deal is market value for him

The Jets put together a convincing package on Tuesday to him, on and off the field. Now it is up to him. - See more at: http://m.metro.us/ne...h.cFze6cx8.dpuf

ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:34 PM) He ain't wearing 28
Mr_Jet Icon : (Today, 02:34 PM) Well considering they already retired #28 in honor of Curtis Martin, I don't see Johnson wearing #28.
Mr_Jet Icon : (Today, 02:35 PM) Kind of defeats the purpose of retiring a number.
Mr_Jet Icon : (Today, 02:39 PM) But I know he better not wear LaMont Jordan's number. Or I'll be pissed.

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:03 PM) Tanaka is looking like a stud
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:04 PM) Jets added Vick, Chris Johnson, and Eric Decker to the offense.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:04 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:04 PM) And this draft is loaded at the offensive skill positions
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:04 PM) Hopefully we can get anohter starting WR and starting TE in the draft
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:05 PM) Our offense could be much better than last year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:05 PM) can't get much worse than what it's been the last 2 years
santana Icon : (Today, 03:22 PM) Very cool
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 03:24 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 03:32 PM) still need another WR
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 03:33 PM) so i bet powell barely gets any touches this year and goodson gets cut
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 03:34 PM) Goodson is as good as gone.
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 03:34 PM) With all his legal issues and coming off injury he is done. Possibly even in the NFL
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:39 PM) Powell is average anyways.
Chaos Icon : (Today, 03:39 PM) @ProFootballTalk 5m

Per source, Chris Johnson's two-year deal has a base value of $8 million, with another $1 million available in incentives based on yardage.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:40 PM) He does a lot of things well, but isn't talented enough. Johnson has breakaway ability still and Ivory is man beast running the football
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:41 PM) We will get another WR in the draft. Even in round 2 you can get a starting WR
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 04:09 PM) I am still standing by my CB in the first round and WR in the second prediction

Tomlin, though, is a disciple of the Cover 2 scheme, a 4-3 front that he learned in Tampa Bay under former Bucs coach Tony Dungy and coordinator Monte Kiffin, and which he implemented in Minnesota this season when he was hired as coordinator. In an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette this week, Tomlin suggested he won't be tied down to one defense.

"I'm a fundamentalist as opposed to scheme," Tomlin said. "I think football is a tough man's game, an attrition game. You win by stopping the run and being able to run the ball effectively. And by doing the things winners do."

Yet given his affinity for the Cover 2 scheme, there is little question Tomlin will want to convert to a 4-3 front as quickly as possible. The bigger question: Does Pittsburgh possess the appropriate personnel for such a switch?



Man that sounds awfully close to a certain someone who used to coach the Jets..... Let's hope so! I hate the Steelers. Sperm Headwards always was saying that kind of stupid shit, "Play to win the game." "You win by stopping the run and running well." "Insert more PC bullshit and cliche's here."

Question is, why would the Steelers hire a guy that wasn't successful on defense and is a 1st year coordinator? I mean, yeah they had a good run defense, but those numbers are always skewed when it's because your team can't stop the pass so no one really runs on you, they just throw it. Interesting though, I just read this article because I wasn't sure why they went after this guy, it's not like he's a proven winner or anything, but none the less.... I got some weird creepy flashback half way through. Makes you appreciate Mangini that much more IMO.

However, this really is good news for the Jets. We can rob the Steelers of players and defensive coaches. Most notably Dick LeBeau. That would be sweet.

His philosophy fits right in with the Steelers: run the ball and play solid defense. From what you posted he seems a typical blue collar football guy rather than Edwards who didn't truly put into practice what he preached.

That's the point. Edwards said that same stuff, came from the same lineage, having the same philosophies. It's more along the lines of pulling a fleece over everyone's eyes. We haven't seen enough of Tomlin to make that assumption and that's not really what I'm meaning to bring out, but if you switched Tomlin's name with Edwards in that article.... you'd see that it could have been written about him. That's what I'm talking about. Lets hope for Pitts sake they don't get Herm #2, a spinster with the cliche terms of how to win by incorporating a Tampa 2 defense. I'll tell you what, if and when he dismantles that defense and it doesn't work out... the media is gonna be all over him.

wasn't successful?
the vikes defense was top 10 in total defense
number 1 in rushing (only team to not let up 1000 yards rushing in the NFL)
3rd in takeaways

thats looks good to me
Get it done MT

You could say that about a lot of coaches...

Running the ball well and stopping the run IS the key to winning games...can't harp on the guy for being right! I think it's a good signing and I think he'll do a good job. Just remains to be seen what he does with all of those 3-4 players.

You know where Dungy learned the Cover 2 defense, as a backup QB on those Steeler superbowl teams.
