Decastro is starting, Glenn is starting, Couples is not. Decastro had a bad 1st week in practice, but so did couples, that is why Rex took him of the 1st string an had him playing with the 2s. . Reif is playing behind Backus and will start next year when Backus does hang it up, similar to Light and Solder and Kevin Zeitler looked solid both against the Jets and Falcons. Your happy with Coples, fine. But don't minimize the contributions that were had by the olineman taken.
The Jets had a playoff caliber Defense last year, the offense struggled. They spent more resources on the defense than offense and they have for years.
The question should be when will they quit spending all the resources and money on the d and let the offense wither. Why spend 3 picks on sanchez
if your not going to give him some tools.
This best BPA is not some hard and fast rule. If you have a position of strength and a player is graded at a 90 and and a player at a position of need is graded at a 88 you take the 88. if the delta is that great you trade down and get the right value there.
Ridiculous response, im not minimizng anyones contributions.
Coples isnt starting because devito and wilkerson are very good players in front of him. Decastro and cordy glenn are starting because they had NO ONE in front of them.
I agree the team has drafted defense over offense....should we have passed on wlkerson?
Its amazing the criticism. DE/pass rush is BY FAR the most important area of a football team after QB, as evidenced by the Giants whipping the pats in 2 SBs...so we go out and take a stud DE who so far seems to be a good player, and people here are saying we should have taken a guard.
