    You're a joke. The guy is a complete bum and you are willing to stroke him until your dying day. Hopefully, that day is coming soon.
    You can hate all the guy you want--but the vomitting and failed conditioning test happened in his rookie year in TC. I give him a pass for that.

    You know why?

    Because SINCE then he has--by all accounts--BUSTED HIS ASS. In season AND in the offseason.

    Yet you continue your childish attack on him as having "a bad work ethic" when it's compete bullsh*t.

    And to say "he's just in it for the money" is the dumbest f*ck thing ever said--EVERY player is just in it for the money. If you think otherwise, you're naive.

    You got something against Mcknight and it has nothing to do with the football player.

    Oh, and you hope I die soon?

    Nice--go f*ck yourself you hillbilly porn-mustache sporting camoflauge wearing redneck. Be careful cleaning your guns, a-hole.

    I was wearing camo before camo was fashionable--way back in 1979.

    My brother was a marine and got me a few pairs and I used to sport them around campus up at Syracuse--I think I started the rage.

    I shoulda sold that look to the fashionistas--but by 1985 it was passe. Really comfortable, though, and you could fit 3 beers in each side pocket.

    That sounds practical, but sounds like it might require a serious belt to support that load.


    I like Joe Mcknight. I really do, but im just skeptical of using him out of his comfort zone. It appears the Jets think he is capable of more carries.

    On another note, i read somewhere (possibly this site) that Gannaway is currently 4 on the RB depth chart.
    Of course that is all premature in July, but tier 2 RB's dont often get many carries, and i was really keeping my fingers crossed about TG.
    Step it up man.

    Offensive Sleeper? Keller Likes McKnight
    Posted by Eric Allen on July 18, 2012 – 2:53 pm

    It’s awfully quiet here at the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center.
    The Jets’ 2012 training camp officially kicks off with player check-in day next Thursday, but that will take place 200 miles to the northwest at SUNY Cortland. Anticipation is building and you wonder which players are going to make some noise this summer.
    “I think you need to watch out for Joe McKnight. People ask me and he’s my sleeper for the team,” said TE Dustin Keller. “Obviously nobody is low on Joe, but I think he has so much more upside than people even realize. He’s a great running back, he can catch the ball out of the backfield and he can do so many different things for you. He’s a good special teams guy, returning punts and kickoffs, whatever. He’s definitely a major X-factor for us.”
    Keller, who has led the Green & White in receptions each of the past two seasons, says the Jets are going to become more reliant on their ground game than they were in 2011. Last year they rushed the ball 43% of the time (443 rushes in 1,030 plays). In Mark Sanchez’s second season, the team had an almost even balance at 49% (534-1,087). And in Rex Ryan’s first season as head coach and Sanchez’s rookie campaign, the Jets kept on the ground on 59% of their plays (607-1,030).
    “I think the identity of Coach Sparano’s offense is obviously ‘Ground and Pound.’ That’s something he wants to instill in the team, that we are a run-first team, but we definitely can still throw the ball,” Keller said. “We have a lot of weapons out there. We went and made some things happen in the draft with Stephen Hill, obviously Santonio is there, Patrick Turner and Jeremy Kerley — so many guys that can make big plays out there. Just to think, with those types of guys at the receiver position and it’s still our secondary option, it kind of has to make you excited for what’s coming up in the season.”
    The element of explosion was often absent from the Jets offense last year and a lot of teams dared them to beat them down the field. So in response, the Green & White picked up Chaz Schilens in free agency and then happily moved up to get Georgia Tech’s Stephen Hill in the second round. And with LaDainian Tomlinson moving on into retirement, McKnight is going to get more opportunities carrying the rock and running pass patterns down the field. Kerley, coming off a solid first pro season, has dynamic feet and should be a handful in the slot.
    More speed and more quickness on the field should equate to more space to roam.
    “I think with the addition of Stephen Hill and you already have Jeremy Kerley, guys that can stretch the field and put that pressure on a defense way down the field, that’s going to make things a lot easier for guys such as myself working the middle of the field or guys like Santonio on the outside,” Keller said. “It’s going to draw a little bit of attention away and hopefully we can get those 1-on-1 matchups and take advantage of them.”

    This kid emerged onto the scene and ended up leading the NFL in average yards per kick return, during only his 2nd NFL season. Joe McKnight, when talking physical ability and overall talent? He's something special in the making. His potential does go through the roof. I'm expecting Joe McKnight to emerge an an offensive threat/weapon during his 3rd year this up coming season, while also pushing Shonn Greene at the same time. He made a name for himself on special teams as a 2nd year player, and I truthfully believe that McKnight, on the offensive side of the ball; is on the verge of breaking out as a 3rd year player. He's gained 16 pounds during the offseason in order to transform himself into a more durable NFL running back. I'll be the first to admit, I'm just very anxious in regards to seeing this kid rush behind a healthy, Mangold led, Jets offensive line.

    The book is not quite closed on him yet because he does have physical gifts, but it is closing pretty fast. He gets this year to show his stuff with the jets and next year perhaps with someone else. Maybe. The chances are better then even IMO that he is out of football altogether in 2-3 years.

    Full disclosure. I have no Confederate flags.
    The one game he started he killed it. Can we give him a chance before lynching him?

    Every offseason, the guy brings it. Worked out with LT the whole summer after his rookie year, has been to every Jets West, now Jets East, the guy had a f-up coming into his rookie season-- but to question his work ethic since smacks of something other than intelligence or objectiveness.

    Something else going on here with the Porn-Stache sportin Bambi Killer.

    I was wearing camo back in 1968 and 69 in beautiful Pleiku, Viet Nam. It wasn't that fashionable or fun as I remember it.

    As for Joe McKnight --- had the Jets not allowed HBO HK cameras to film evyearerything in his first TC, Bambimurderer and the rest of SOJFs like him would never have known about the vomiting, the conditioning test and all the rest of the meaningless baloney that he continually brings up in his hate campaign against McKnight

    He would have seen a rookie not playing much in the beginning but coming on, through hard work during the first season to get onto the active roster, play ST and have a terrific game in week 17. Then he would have seen McK continue to expand his role in season 2 becoming one of the top KO returners in the NFL, playing in the backfield as a change of pass back catching passes and effectively running outside and playing on coverage teams

    But Mainepat didn't see any of this because he saw Joe vomit on HBO and have rookie troubles in his first TC, declared him an immediate bust in his limited mind and has seen NOTHING since

    Fortunately pretty much no humans pay much attention to him and all ruminants and other lower forms of animals run and hide in the forest when they see him coming near them, guns a blazin

    Questionable circumstances. Can we maybe wait for him to consistently show something before we anoint him as the next coming of <fill in the blank>?

    Yes and the HK cameras are responsible for him not breaking any tackles too I suppose.

    Following Reggie Bush at USC almost certainy impeded his development.

    Shottie probably had a vendetta against him.

    Love it.

    Questionable circumstances.

    LOL.

    Let's try to diminish anything the guy has ever done, let's make excuses for it all.

    Btw, on his blocked FG for a TD against Dallas, the TE lined up on McKnight's side was going through a divorce and didn't have his mind on blocking.

    So that doesn't count either.

    If Mcknight matches LTs stats and S.Hill matches Plaxs recs and tds we make the playoffs, I just do not see it happening, not in a Tony FG offense. The Jets are going to play most games close as is Tonys nature,however I feel the defenses lapses at the worst times will haunt us again

    Stop.

    When given his touches he produced. I am not anointing him anything. He could turn out to suck, he could be great, could end up in the middle, who knows?

    What I do know is that it is ridiculous to write him off at this point in his career due to the fact that he hasn't gotten enough touches for us to make a valid determination of his caliber as a player.

    No. You stop. The book is stiil out on him and he could still end up producing but up until now he has been average to poor in limited action as RB.

    JAG

    At best.

    The reasons for why that game against the Bills should taken with a grain of salt are well documented and they were discussed to death on these boards at that time. The worst run defense in the entire NFL by a country mile in a game after they had pretty much kissed goodbye to their season and were mailing it in. A game also where we were protecting our QB and went in fully intending to give the Bills a steady diet of runs all game long.

    So yes, he performed nicely in that game but by no stretch should that game be treated as as kind of a litmus test for whether or not he would be effective as a runner against real NFL defenses week in and week out. No, THAT Bills run defense and particularly on THAT week did not qualify.

    Besides that ONE SINGLE game you have ZERO GAMES out of a possible 35 or so during the NFL career of Joe McKnight (or 43 including preseason games) where he has looked like anything other than a JAG RB.

    Does he get more chances? Sure. But not an infinite amount. Running Backs are pretty much expected to be finished products as runners coming out of college. They may learn to block better or improve as a passing receivers out of the backfield. Pure running skills are not learned at the NFL level.

    Leon Washington by contrast, another 4th round pick was consistently and obviously a threat to do damage from his very first preseason game and almost every time he touched the ball thereafter. You could argue durabulity issues with Leon but the running talent was obvious. Heck, even Cedric Houston a few years ago showed more spark at that position. You didn't have to wait for third full season to see anything with Washington.

    McKnight is a decent special teams player at this point. He he yet to "show" anything more as a runner. Certainly not on any kind of a consistent basis.
