Posted 23 Nov 2015Todd Bowles' patience running thin with Devin Smith
QuoteThe New York Jets are still looking for returns from their second-round investment.
Devin Smith hasn't been productive on the field this season and the patience from his head coach is running thin. Smith's lackluster rookie campaign was highlighted yesterday when he dropped what would have been a 46-yard touchdown in the third quarter, and it doesn't take much effort to notice that the Jets lost 24-17 to the Houston Texans -- by a touchdown.
"Our rookies have got to stop being rookies," Jets coach Todd Bowles said, according to the New York Daily News. "They need to grow up. They get paid like everybody else and they've got to start acting like they're not in college anymore."
The rookie out of Ohio State was thrown at four times during the loss and didn't haul in any of the four passes. He has just seven catches for 82 yards on the season.
Smith's forgettable performance comes a week after he fumbled a kickoff return that resulted in a Bills touchdown. Yet, the receiver is confident that he'll get over his rookie slump.
"It's tough, but I know my time is coming," Smith sad. "So I'm just going to keep working hard. When that day comes, everybody will know."
While Bowles' patience is waning, it's too early to lose faith in Smith. For Jets fans it's tough to see their young wideout struggle when their Big Blue roommates had a breakout rookie receiver last year. But the Ohio State product still has time to prove himself. After all, he's just a rookie.

He can be confident all he wants. His career will be short in the NFL with his Vaseline hands and not this great wr that an unnamed fellow hardcore Jets fan site member (who I'm cool with but love to rag whenever possible just like he loves ragging me. You know who you are.....lol)that used a Youtube greatest catches of his life video as his proof that Smith would be great.
If the reports would've been more like 50-50 I would've been a lot more confident in Smith but when I read dozens of reports and 98% of all scouting reports all say Smith basically sucks and would have a very hard time making it in the NFL I hated the pick before the season ever started and was sure he would be another Hill.
All the reports were the same..... has poor route running technique. And Smith has weak core body strength and gets manhandled and pushed off his routes easily by physical corners which means pretty much every corner in the NFL in this era. And worst of all they all said Smith is a body catcher.
You can get away with bad hands in the NFL as a tight end if you are good at blocking but not as a receiver. You can teach some things like route running technique and increase strength and teach better awareness to a point but you cant teach a wr with bad hands to have good hands without a ton of Stickum. You either have good hands or you dont. Just like speed cant be taught. You can tweak speed and hands to a point but its impossible to make a slow guy run like Bolt and its impossible to make a body catcher with bad hands to catch football passes thrown by NFL caliber qbs that average over 50mph(some qbs can throw footballs nearly 60mph).
Anyway just having fun with you man. But hope you have have learned your lesson about using Youtube videos as your proof of greatness for players coming out of college.
Posted 4 Oct 2015NFL hired 13 new officials for 2014 season and 9 more new for 2015 season. 22 New officials in the span of two years. So we have a lot of sophomore and rookie Refs in the game.
If you wish you can read about it on the Washington Post.
NFL Replaces 22 officials
Posted 4 Oct 2015Did some research after the Bills were dismantled by the Giants. Because The Bills are a bvery similiar team to the Jets. we have better receivers. They have a better qb and a better te
Jets 7 sacks(Tied 15th) 6 ints (Tied 3rd) 0 int tds 7 FF 7FR (1st) 0 FR tds
Bills 7 sacks(Tied 15th) 6 ints (Tied 3rd) 1 int tds 3 FF 3FR (Tied 11th) 0 FR tds
Giants 5 Sacks(Tied 25th) 5 ints (Tied 6th) 0 int tds 5 FF 2FR (Tied 16th) 1 FR tds
Jets 2 qb Sacks allowed 50 qb hits allowed (hits rank 3rd worst in NFL)
Bills 10 qb Sacks allowed 32 qb hits allowed (hits rank 7th worst in NFL)
Giants 4 qb Sacks allowed 40 qb hits allowed (hits rank 5th worst in NFL)
I couldn't find defensive qb hits through week 4 but there are a two very alarming problems here in these stats
First for a defensive line that is supposed to be really dominate we aren't even averaging 2 sacks a game through 4 weeks. Pathetic because we haven't faced any elite teams yet.
Second after seeing we have given up 50 hits on the qb that is really bad. makes more sense why Fitz`s passes are erratic. being the 3rd worst offensive line for qb hits is utterly pathetic.
Posted 14 Dec 2014FINAL DRAFT ORDER......for 20 teams not in playoffs.
Note:Chargers and Chiefs tied for 17th pick. Coin flip will decide which team picks 17th and which team picks 18th.
QuoteThe Bucs went into the weekend with a slim lead in the SOS tiebreaker -- essentially, if teams finish with the same record, the one whose opponents won fewer games gets to pick first. A pair of underdog winners -- the Texans beating the Ravens and the Giants beating the Rams -- helped the Bucs and hurt the Titans, enough to put the Bucs in control of the top of the draft.
