    The "Anthony Schlegal Made 2 Bonehead Plays Today But We Won So It's Ok" thread

    Schlegal tried to make a tackle on an onside kick and touched the ball, giving GB the ball. Then he had an illegal block in the back on a punt return. Back to the Practice Squad you go!! The game was starting to get a little nerve-racking when all of this happened but we put it the game out of reach so we won inspite of him!!

    I thought he was a wasted pick from the onset...that said can't blame him for being aggressive on the on-side kick....

    Westhoff was really mad with him. But, it was his first game he played in this year- thus the over anxiousness.

    B.S. What else was he to do on the onside kick? The whole ST unit was fooled. And who here has never blocked someone in the back?

    I don't think Schlegel is going to last long in this league....usually I give players at least one year to get adjusted but it just doesn't look like he is athletic enough for the NFL. It is pretty obvious he should NOT have been picked in the 3rd round

    How about not go for the ball at all considering it didn't go the necessary 10 yards!!!

    I don't blame him for the onside kick, that was a bit of a fluke, I do blame him for the blatant block in the back....bad 3rd round for the Jets, but theior later picks are looking like genius.

    It went 9 and 1/2 yards!! How was he supposed to tell that 1/2 yard difference??

    And if he didn't go for the ball, and Green Bay recover, everyone yells at him for not playing the ball ...

    He played last week as well.

    Schlegal looked very very bad.

    But also Eric Smith who we drafted to be a sure tackler has bounced off every play he's been involved in.

    We'll just chalk up the 3rd round to a learing experience for the FO. Don't take guys that have a consensus 6th round grade by every single other source.

    good thing

    Eric Smith bounced off that tackle and... oh wait, he didn't bounce off, he stuck the guy and kept him from getting the first down.

    he was just eager to get in there and make a play. I forgive him.

    The onside kick will grade out as the right play by Schlegel. The Packer player is actually standing beyond the 40. If Schlegel doesnt hit the ball/him he catches it and falls down beyond the 40 and in all likelyhood they give the Packers the ball anyway. If the ball didnt go backwards there is no way they would rule that it didnt go 10 yds because it either did go 10 yds or 9.8. Go back and look at it if you dont believe it -- they kick it from the 30 and the Packer's players feet are beyond the 40. Try watching the game with the sound off sometime so you cant here the innacurate babling of the commentators and you'll discover a whole different game.

    The penalty was a mistake. That doesnt make Schlegel a bust or a wasted pick. If every rookie who committed a penalty was autimatically a bust then D'Brick would have busted out for false starts long ago.

    The penalty may cost Schlegel his spot on the 45 man game day roster (he has never been on the practice squad though as a third stringer he does work with the show team defense) Westhoff is not exactly the forgiving type.

    To me he looked like a rookie that was trying too hard. He looked good last week on ST and had some good blockes on returns today.

    Your talking about when he leaned into guy as he was basically already on the ground, you're right, we should call Canton and reserve a spot. He hasn't made one real play all year, are you just looking for an opportunity to nitpick :rocky:

    So the interception he made in the Cleveland game wasnt a "real play". Seemed pretty important to me at the time.

    Try to know what you're talking about an people will be less likely to nitpick what you type.

    This kid was picked before B. Smith and L. Washington both have contributed FAR more than he has but also forgive me if I am wrong but I thought this kid was a run stopping specialist (he was the one that made Hawk and and Carpenter look good remember?) and isn't run stopping one of our weakest areas on D?? Shouldn't this mean that he has an even GREATER chance to see the field than any of our other rookies (besides Mangold and Brick)? He is supposed to excel at something we are not good at and STILL cant see the field....BUST

    Are you two related to Eric Smith b/c you're both snotty about the fact he hasn't done anything to justify his draft position and I simply stated the fact. Yes he's made one interception this year in a game that we lost to Cleveland. I'm not impressed with him nor is the coaching staff obviously. He's missed several tackles this year that would've made an impact. Mo lewis was a third round draft pick, an exceptional one for sure, but let's stop circling the wagons around this guy even if I misspoke and he did make one, ONE, play in the entire 2006 season.
