I have heard him criticize his own personnel decisions before but I understand what you mean. I also think this Ducasse/Slauson competition in camp has something to do with that. I think they are trying to force him into a starting role to not look bad. IMO Ducasse was a "Tanny pick" so I think he takes that one personally.
My concern is that a lot of faith is being placed in a rookie and a 2nd-year guy that looked good in the slot but didn't exactly set the world on fire.
Last year, the excuse for Sanchez was, "he didn't have anyone to throw to." A one-year deal for an Edwards type eliminates that excuse and then we can get a better gauge Sanchez's overall performance.
I guess I'm lost at what reason the Jets would have had to NOT sign Edwards. Money was an issue last year - what's the reason this year?
There have been too many drops from the sound of things.
Sanchez is coming off a season in which his confidence took a major hit.
He needs guys who can hold onto the ball under pressure. Dropping passes in a limited contact situation in practice (especially when you need to impress your coaches) is not a good sign,
And the Kerley thing is a motivational tactic. The odds of Kerley not being th go to 3rd down go is zero. They just want him to take it to the next level, and when they did a similar thing last year and challenged him he really responded.
I am not worried at all about the WR group.
I think the Jets have a group that will be hungry, and will do anything the coaches ask of them. A far cry from the likes of Plax and Mason. Give me Hill, Kerley, Schillens, Turner/White along with Tone, and we'll be more than fine.
Other teams in the past have gone with young WR's. Why can't we?
Mistake? Since Braylon was not resigned by the Jets, he has caught 15 passes.Tanny did not want to admit he made a mistake by letting Braylon go in the first place.
If he is lucky, he will be the number 4 receiver on the seahawks as Rice, Baldwin and tate are all better then him.
Im am not a Tanny fan, but not resigning braylon was the right move.
