MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:31 PM) Not f***ing happy
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:31 PM) I hope I'm wrong tho
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:31 PM) if I'm wrong I will eat m crow
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:39 PM) Some mocks had him top 10
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:42 PM) this guy is small
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:45 PM) Most mocks had Lee at 17 to the Falcons
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:45 PM) He's a day 1 starter for us. We've needed OLB forever

Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:51 PM) Lee fills a need better
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:52 PM) I would have liked tunsil to slide to us though. After east picking great
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:52 PM) Would you take Lee over Lawson?
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:55 PM) I'm not inspire by that pick. Not even a little
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:01 PM) Wasn't an option. Lawson was gone
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:02 PM) Lawson is more of a de. We already have too many of those. We only have 1 proven LBer and he's 32 and we run a 3-4. Lee is a day 1 starter

Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 11:08 AM) http://nyjetsfan.com...showtopic=38865
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 11:19 AM) jets tried to trade up for tunsil but the price was too high
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 05:10 PM) Tunsil will end up out of the league
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 05:12 PM) Lee isn't a pass rusher, hes a fast athletic LB. Hes probably their future at ILB, someone who can cover in the middle
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 06:16 PM) jets said he's an ILB for us
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 06:17 PM) If we could grab jack he would be an OLB
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 06:17 PM) ttians have 3 picks in the next 13 picks
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 06:33 PM) jack to jax 36th overal
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:33 PM) Did you hear that the 1st round pick for the Browns RETIRED after getting drafted

It's good to see Leon on the field again, but that was only an 11 yard run. McKnight is going to be a project which sounds kinda scary to me honestly because Vernon is also a project. I'm not going to say moving Leon to get McKnight is a mistake though. Leon was and still is a big risk with the injury and he was offered a fair contract which he turned down.

Can we stop the Leon worship now? I'm all for being a fan of his, but he's no longer a Jet so I really don't care anymore. The Leon threads and comments over the past few months has been almost Favre-like. Leon's a good scat back and KO return guy. That's it.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

Leon could score at any moment from anywhere on the field and all I am saying is I don't have that feeling with Joe and Leon was a favorite jet to many so if he shows a good showing maybe he will be asked back in a yr or 2. like LC.

Fair point. I don't think that Tanny was looking for another Leon in McKnight though. He was looking for someone with upside and potential. Leon coming off an injury that was thought to be career threatening while being in a contract dispute was more of a risk to keep than trading him.

I understand that he was a fan favorite to many but I don't see him coming back even with Seattle having a stable of RB's.

No, we did not.
With the type of injury he sustained to his leg, his leg will NEVER be 100%, and will NEVER heal 100%! One wrong move, and it could snap again. Plus,it has been less than a year since his injury.
I am sure he can still be productive,but not like he was before !

I think they put a titanium rod in his bone , he won't break that leg again. My Daughter had this done to her so I know about it.

Oh well, he ran untouched through a hole. It didn't take any gamebreaking ability for that run. When he performs like the Leon of two seasons ago I'll consider changing my position. But for now, Leon still wanted too much.

You have to look at this with a business eye...if we would of kept Leon and he's still good, that's ANOTHER player waiting for a paycheck while McKnight who is a rookie no matter what he does wont get a new deal till after next season the earliest. McKnight was not only drafted to replace Leon but also to eliminate the possibility of another player looking for a payday after this season.

Leon was demanding a new deal and got injured. There was no guarantee he'd come back and be the same RB. The Jets made the right move.

I don't know if you can consider McKnight a project, he just needs to become more consistent. He shows flashes. Vernon Gholston doesn't.
