    LT Big Year

    With the resigning of Richardson and Hartsock, the Jets have all the pieces from last years #1 rushing offense back. The Jets show a committment to the run that most teams don't and LT will be thrilled with the zone blocking schemes of Callahan/Shotty.
    He's past the point of being a 20-30 carry guy but I think he's going to get enough touches to be a real good part of an either Greene/LT or Greene/LT/Washington backfield.
    Another good move by Mike Tannenbaum who is becoming an elite GM.

    I believe LT will put up 1,000 yds. Will it be easy? No, BUT, it'll look easier running behind our OLine :yes:

    I see with 10-12 rushing TD's, possibly 3-5 more receiving!

    You think they'd rather use LT in Goal Line situations than Greene? Personally I don't. I do see the yardage though.

    I DO see them using LT in Goal Line situations. I see Greene and Leon between the 20's :yes:

    The fumbling is a concern from Greene too. We'll see, there will be a change if someone isn't getting it done. This much we know.

    What I heard was he worked with the RB's Coach about how he was holding the ball, and that resulted in a productive post season :yes:

    what would be the right amount of touches for LT? I'm thinking like 8-10.

    haha hey, carter went 2-1 i believe in '04 in pennington's absence. what he did before and after the jets is irrelevent; he did what we needed him to do. And Favre..no secret I love Favre and it was still pretty damn cool to see him on the Jets and ask SAR, Favre's arrival and departure in NY essentially laid the foundation for this team we have now. :yes:

    LT will run for 600 yards, but he'll do so on only 150 or so carries. A pretty boring 4 YPC, but I'll take it.

    But he'll have 50 receptions for another 400 yards. So it'll be worth it.

    while i think it would be great if lt went for a thousand (assuming that greene does the same) let's see how he is in preseason and the first few games. if he can put up decent numbers, then watch out.

    won't expect him to play much in preseason, no reason to. But I really believe he will get 1000 all purpose yards. Don't forget he has thrown 11 or 12td passes as well in his career so he may get 1 or 2 of those this season as well. I wouldn't be surprised at all.

    He's actually thrown 7 Td passes and they were all while Schotty was the QB's coach in SD. I wonder how many plays this year Schotty will call this year? 5 Months until the HOF game.:yes:

    I think LT will have a nice little season with our OLine and Callahan.
