    Why Can't We Cover TEs?

    Not to nitpick, I'm as happy as anyone about the win, but what is it with the Jets inability to cover TEs?

    They, or short Welker like slot receivers, consistently murder us underneath.

    Rexy has to shore this up because you know Bellichick is already thinking about it.

    Because our safeties can't really cover. Pool, Leonhard and E. Smith all can't cover.

    You know how in Office Space, the main character says in therapy that every day is the worst day of his life?

    Every game Eric Smith plays in is the worst game of his life.

    He looked beyond lost out there today.

    I agree and I think POOL shied awy from contact early on in two instances. Then he came alive but did not cover well. Leonhard is too small and Smith is a joke. lowery might be an answer.

    At least give Ihedigbo a shot,

    Although his coverage skills pretty much suck too. At least he can hit hard, I guess.

    Do we have Pool, Leonhard, and Smith out there at the same time? If they do....wtf? Why not use Wilson or Coleman, whoever the 4th CB is?

    Yeah, and when he makes one of those big hits we can see that "gravedigger" celebration.

    Well we'd better figure something out, before we meet the likes of Brady and Manning.

    I'm worried that Danny Woodhead is going to tear us apart underneath.

    Nah. The Dougie and the Gravedigger are tied.


    Don't care for the Between the legs thing....He's been hanging around Holmes too much with that stupid pose....

    Maybe Braylon knows Basketball? Just like Bo Knows Football? ;)

    I am all for giving DIGGS a real shot at being a starter. I have had enough of Erik Smith for this year. DIGGS can do the job. Lowery if healthy can do the job. POOL is getting on my nerves. He has talent but is seldom around the action. Leonhard is tough but too short to cover TEs. and too slow to cover slot receivers. CRUSH them. Ust DIGGS to cream them! he is unafraid!

    Might as well give him a shot. Eric isn't doing jack and is actually a liability out there for us. We need someone else.
