    Actually - I am with Namath. I think he was a rookie 2 years ago and the Miami staff was high on him. Hes started the year for them I think at RG but then was injured. Supposedly he was the strongest guy on the team. After watching Hard Knocks I have 2 concerns about this team.

    1) LG - Slauson looks like an average player at best. Vlad Ducasse for a 2nd round pick looks lost. I don't expect him to be perfect but he should also not being beat so badly on passing plays. You would of thought as a tackle in college he would have better pass blocking skills.

    2) Mark Sanchez - Still seems to make some bad reads but at least we know he works hard at getting better. I just wish it would have shown more this preseason.

    In any case I think Thomas is worth a look if he is healthy.

    I'm pretty content with our guard position right now with Slauson.

    Average- Slauson has been excellent in the run game and very aggrssive in the pass game. That was better thyen Faneca
    s contribgutions. Faneca coukd noy pass block at all as well. GO JET! :D:D

    so we are fine at a position that not 1 player on our roster has an nfl start at. Yes, we would be crazy to try to upgrade there :rolleyes:

    wow, interesting

    Did anyone else know that Brandon Moore didn't have a single NFL start

    Thanks Joe W for that newsflash


    as for LG, I agree --- NO rookies should ever be allowed to start for the Jets -- Sanchez and Greene last year -- OUT

    Wilson-- OUT NOW

    ALL starters at ALL positions need to be grizzled old veterans
