Sirius XM Pat Kirwin says if Jets are banking on Hunter, they
should sign this guy now.
Hunter sucked but if the defense knows 80% of the time exactly what you're going to do and you never help him he's gonna be a turnstile. Ditto goes for any other mediocre OT.
Sign him for cheap to put pressure on Hunter who's supposedly our starting RT. Let the best RT win.
Based on various fan sites, Steelers' fans opinions of Scott are very similar to the opinions of Hunter (rightfully) held around here. The bolded text in this quote in particular sounds eerily familiar:
Link: http://steelcurtainrising.blogspot.com/Scott struggled, mightily at times, during the regular season, but stepped up his game impressively during the playoffs and Super Bowl XLV. The Steelers thought so highly of his progress that he began the 2011 season as the starter.
That changed fast, however, as he was unable to protect Ben Roethlisberger's blind side, and the team quickly moved to bring back Max Starks. Scott continued to receive action however, as repeated injuries forced the Steelers to play musical chairs on offensive line.
How ironic that the Steelers and Jets, who played in the 2010 Season AFC Championship game, both thought that they had found solid starters at Tackle based on their playoff runs that year - and both had rude awakenings during the 2011 season.
My opinion based on this - pass on Scott.
