[color=green]Guys...Be serious here.Harper is terrible and has absolutely NO GAME AT ALL!
To back up this bold statement ,keep in mind the following stats:
1. Herm chose Baddniss to suit up as many games this year as Harper for the Jets.
2.Baddniss had as many sacks as Alan Harper did for the Jets over the last 2 seasons.
In all seriousness, Harper is the prime example of how college stats from a mediocre program can be totally mis-leading to us all. Yes he did have 12.5 sacks his senior year. BUT Fresno State aint Ohio State, and lots of people forget there's a huge difference in the oppositions of those 2 programs.
After Harper was drafted , there was this idiot named Jensen posting at the NY.Times jet website saying that anyone with 12.5 sacks in his senior year would be our next Hugh Douglass and was a steal in the 4th round. My comment was that he was a stretch & these kind of guys belong in the 7th round. The lesson to be learned here for all of us is that stats from Podunk colleges dont mean squat.
The other lesson is that Jack Bicknell is an idiot. So far in NFL.Europe this season, Harper has something like 4 tackles in 4 games. Thats pitiful!!! That is HARDLY tearing up the league! Bicknell simply has no idea what he is talking about. Harper has fully proven that he is a wash-out and has no game, and should not make the Jets roster this season.
As I've said before, if you aint a STAR in NFLe, you aint close to starting in the NFL. [/color]
