We can't have it both ways -- "I know they said he'd be raw and take a few years to develop, but two years down the line he just looks too raw and undeveloped, so I guess he's just the latest in the line of Jets draft busts . . ."
By definition, a player like Vlad NEEDS as much coaching as he can get. Losing that coaching from the lockout, as well as trying him at different positions, was the perfect recipe for him to be where he is now.
Will he ever recover? Who knows, but to expect more at this point would be to have expectations beyond anything we should have had when he was drafted . . .
Complete bull****, and you have nothing to base this on.His potential got Callahan fired. Not that I am complaining.
All players develop and different speeds and different rates, comparing a successful rookie QB's campaign to Vlad is beyond naive.
The Callahan thing was a joke based on something else I said in another thread.
Get your sarcasm meters fixed.
But there is a little truth in every joke.
And comparing Vlad to a QB is not apples to apples but that only works in my favor b.c it is harder for a QB. And what does "raw" even mean? Every rookie is raw.
I will give you guys the last word. The beauty is that all of this will be answered soon enough. If you're right, I am sure you will let me know.
C Mart's post is not only well taken is true, and your response is BS.
The scouting reports are valid because that is exactly what we've seen out of the player and what the Jets have seen out of the player. The lockout issue only further provides credence to it.
Why does any blame need to go anywhere?
Teams draft players all the time that are raw and have a lot of upside but are not as polished or ready for the NFL game.
Sanchez isn't on a 5 year plan, and I have no idea what you're talking about regarding Hunter, he hasn't been with the team for 9 years.
Don't be such a wiseass, several posters are all posting the same thing regarding Ducasse, it's all valid, no matter how smarmy you want to be about it.
If he works out, good for us as fans, if not bad for all of us. Why does every damn thread and debate on this board between fans have to turn into a penis waving contest? That seems more important to you than anything else.
And there is nothing with my sarcasm meter, unless you think that the 3 other posters that read your crap all fell for it too...
