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
[QUOTE=ARodFLKeysJetsFan;3763813]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!!!

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 is just one and there were alot more. Now, you want to contradict me some more?
:rolleyes: By the way, good call there Bart Hubbuch. :shakeass:[/QUOTE]
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
