Recently cut defensive back Josh Thomas suggested coaching is a problem with the Jets, Zach Braziller of the New York Post reports.
The journeyman defensive back, who drew headlines when he had his playbook — stored in a team-issued iPad — stolen from his rental car over the weekend while he was with the team in Tennessee, said he received limited coaching in his brief stay with the Jets.
“I feel like I wasn’t given the attention necessary as far as being engaged from the coach-to-player standpoint and knowing the things I need to work on,” the 25-year-old Thomas told reporters in Detroit on Thursday, a day after being picked up by the Lions. “It became where I was there as a player and wanting and desiring some feedback that wasn’t given. So sometimes I may have been standing there with a [deer-in-the-headlights] look in my eyes trying to figure out what I needed to do.”
Oddly, Thomas, a fifth-round pick of the Cowboys in 2011, noted the Jets told him he was let go because he didn’t communicate enough with his teammates. He said his time there was unlike his experience with other NFL teams, such as the Seahawks, Panthers and even his first day with the Lions. And it wasn’t just head coach Rex Ryan or secondary coach Tim McDonald — but the entire coaching staff that operated that way.
“So at the same time, just from the past experiences, every organization operates differently — so it could be the way that the Jets operate,” he said. “I just want to be great. I want to get better every day. I look forward to enhancing something about my game every day, and [the Jets] were just more independent there.”
Posted 15 Dec 2014That's what they say every year and guys go late. Rodgers was not really considered a sure thing and he dropped while Alex smith was taken one. My point is its a crap shoot and now that we are out of the top 5 I am not ready to jump off a bridge or anything.
of course the draft is a crapshoot overall, but rodgers was considered a top 5 pick who fell. some had him higher then smith (most actually) but the niners wanted their hometown hero. Rodgers feel mostly due to circumstance. Yes mariota or winston could fall, you never know, but outside of them, there isn't a QB anyone would consider good in the draft
Posted 15 Dec 2014I was referring to top 5. but Rapist was projected lower than where the Steelers took him if I remember correctly. He came out of Miami of Ohio. My point is we have just as good of a shot getting a QB later than earlier in round 1
depends on the draft class. this class is weak to begin with it. the drop off after winson and mariota are pretty bad. we'll at best wind up with another geno smith
Posted 15 Dec 2014We could trade up or down though. Its not the end of the world. How many starting QBs were a top 5 pick?
Non top 5
My bigger concern is who is doing the picking and his track record.
wilson and brady are flukes. about 70% of starting QBs are 1st rounders. Ben only fell to 7th because eli and rivers were rated higher then him. it was a stacked class and 2 QBs went top 4. Rodgers fell for who knows what reason but it was a fluke. alot of it comes down to pure luck. also you forgot andrew luck 1st overall pick on your list. just sayin
Posted 15 Dec 2014so 3 teams who need a QB are now in front of us? great.
