track coaches prep you for the 40 time. Keep in mind its impressive but there's an art to running the 40 time that doesn't translate to Football. You aren't running track style when you are out on the football field. 40 time's are VERY overrated. A lot of the lateral drills and more than anything game tape will give you an idea for how fast a guy is with the pads on. Gannaway ran a solid 40 time but a lot of that is how he was prepped for the 40 time and how he executed. Football isn't a track race. Can he hit the hole after he breaks a tackle and outrun a safety or corner if he has the angle on them? That remains to be seen. I wouldn't put any stock on ANYbody's 40 time and think he's a can't miss guy because of it. Its dumb especially for a running back. You can't use speed at RB unless you're at the 2nd level anyway and thats the hardest part to get to for a RB.
Guy can run a 4.1 as a RB but if he can't read the hole or get the angle on anybody after he's hit the 2nd level he's just a bullet hitting a wall at close range. I'd like to see him in short yardage situations first and also given some carries like in the 2nd half of some games while defenses are a bit tired and see if he can wear them out a bit more. Also I'd like to see him and Powell compete for a position ... We may have to cut ties with one of them unless we're going into the season with 4 or 5 backs. Doubt we can keep all these guys ... remember Terminator's spot still up in the air ... we'll see
Again, give me a quote by an actual person, not some imaginary person spewing nonsense. No one even thought that he quit in week 15 or 16. Until some unnamed person said so. You say you watch games, how many posts did you write in week 15 and 16 saying he quit?
And as I said, not some LT quote that you want to interpret as he quit, because nowhere in that quote does LT say Holmes quit.
I get it, you don't like him, makes you more open minded.
And you have a hard on for Braylon and hate that they kept Holmes.
We've seen your dance too many times already.
Give Jordy some slack Jet Nut....
After all...its an actual football post...not a personal attack on you or me or ray or some other poster hes decided to fight with..
Progress in his treatment IMHO

Maybe he doesn't like Taco Bell? I know I'd have trouble following a leader who didn't buy chalupas after the game . . .
This is why I think Sporano will be perfect for this team right now. He's not gonna let any players sulk or *****, and he's going to call them out when they make a mistake. Not saying that Santonio was right, but having players held accountable will keep these things from becoming an issue this year. We need confidence, and focus. I don't care if he's the Herm Edwards of OCs. We only need 17 points a game and to keep the defense off the field a little.
So now you're doubting Jenny Vrentas' credibility? She's proving to be the Jets best beat writer. I'm sure she made it up. :rolleyes:
Gosh. LT didn't specifically use the word "quit." I'm sure if he did, you'd complain that he didn't pronounce it correctly. :rolleyes:
better to just try and ignore Jordy along with his newfound chowd troll pals. Better than letting that group just derail every thread hers at JI
