    How bout all of the schmuck beat writers that said LT looked old & slow in Trng camp?

    It just goes to show you how much these doom & gloom NFL analysts & beat writers do not their a$s from their elbows.

    There were many, many pessimists where LT was concerned prior to the start of the season, both local & national NFL beat writers and analysts saying that LT looked old & slow & showed no burst.

    LT is a shining example of how much people that write about football for a living actually know - not a whole hell of alot obviously.

    Great game Ladanian, keep those 31 year old legs churning & keep that fire burning!!!

    Please give our [B]team[/B] beat writers some credit. To a man (and McManus), they all told it like it was: he was showing a surprising amount of burst.

    To all the national NFL "beat" writers who did not watch a snap of Jets camp and wrote all those articles, I agree completely.

    More proof that the talking heads don't know WTF they're talking about. They look at everything on the surface and don't consider underlying factors.

    LT + 31 years old + decreasing YPC = all I need to know to mail in another uninspired article.

    I dunno what reports you were reading, but everything I read all preseason was about how GOOD LT looked.

    Now, what they said about how he looked last year in SD? I saw the same thing, and the numbers dictated standard post 30 decline for an RB. The real genius here is Tanny/Rex. They saw the tape, and saw past the numbers and naysayers. They realized what LT could do with THIS O-Line and went full court press to woo him over here :D

    They lookin real good now for that.

    moronic media.

    Since mini camps started the media was gushing over Tomlinson.

    If you want to say the questioned the move in the off season, you would be right.

    But Tomlinson came to camp in his Dougie Shoes, and everyone gave him his credit from that point on.

    AROD: The writers were not the only people that said that! We had many Jets fans on this board say the exact same thing and were utterly opposed to signing the old, washed up rb. They agrued till they were blue in the face. Noww they seem to be very quiet wouln't you say AROD! GO JETS!

    This Barf Hubbuch guy is a joke, and seems to only write nothing but negative articles about the Jets. Exactly, great call on calling LT washed up after mini camps in June lol. Seriously how do these idiots still keep their jobs :steamin:

    Perhaps they cater to some of the negative Nacy's we have on these boards. Just as many fans here said that LT was done; Slauson sucked; Folk was a disaster: Weatherford was NG; Ellis was old; CRO was a waste of time; and on and on. Now they are somewhat silent. But if LT or Slauson makes an error, they will be back in all their regal splendor! :O:O
