    “Right now, I’m thinking that we’re going to be okay,” Ryan added. “Look, I don’t know exactly what’s out there. We don’t know who’s going to be cut from other teams…. I don’t believe you’re going to find somebody right now that can be a starting right tackle ahead of who we have. We’ll see how Austin plays.”

    I'm cool with this. I would prefer the Jets wait for the cuts, rather than get hosed on a trade.

    That's what he was before Woody got hurt, and pretty good at it. Hopefully his confidence isn't completely shot. My theory is that he reads these boards, and I blame you guys for crushing his confidence. Thanks a lot.

    I've always been of the opinion that the ideal time to pick up a starter at OT is in late August/early September.

    Ok I'll bite. Exactly what is a jumbo swing tackle as opposed to a blocking tight end?

    Heading to Vegas now to bet a trifecta of that, Rosie O'Donnell on the cover of SI Swimsuit Issue and Stokes winning NBA Dunk Contest.

    Book it!

    Not only that but it's hard for a FO to admit that it may have made a mistake.

    Gholston, Clemens for example.

    I'm flashing back to the one game Everett McIver experiment up in Buffalo during the Coslet regime when Bruce Smith nearly decapitated Boomer Esiason on one play when McIver (who never played tackle in a live NFL game before) false started because he forgot the snap count. Boomer got concussed on a dead-ball play.

    So now Hunter is a GREAT blocking TE. Fine. Superb player.
    And Rex said previously that Hunter was just fine at RT and doing well.
    And that he would make Gholston into a fine player.
    And Sanchez was just fine. And Greene was a real horse. Slauson - wow. Vlad - good drive blocker. Blah, blah, blah.
    BS REX.

    Jets used Hunter as a tackle eligible 6th blocker many times from 08-10 and it worked quite well. I'm glad Hunter is back to a role where he can acually help the team.
    As for Austin Howard, at least he's big and will be tougher to throw around in pass protection like Hunter was. And Howard will help in the running game. He's huge, he's more of that prototypical "road-grader" that you can run behind.
    The Jets bread and butter in 09-10 was running off the right side. Now they can get back to that.

    Absolutely but thats part of the buisness. Like I said not the greatest decision by Tanny but you have to always look at the whole picture.

    If the former catches a pass, he's the second coming. If the latter drops one, he's the anti-christ.

    I don't understand.

    How do you utilize a Trojan Horse if it is sitting on the bench?

    Let's hope Howard works out. Curious to see if this impacts the running game against Carolina . . .

    Keep in mind, Googs was the OL coach last year for a team that yielded 52 sacks.

    lol. It's a term that exists only in the press release as far as Google is concerned. I'm listening now but I don't think Rex uses it in the presser.

    Swing Tackle just means he will back up both the Left and Right Tackle positions. Jumbo is a blocking TE with a Linemans number. I believe he must check in as an eligible receiver since he is the last man on the line of scrimmage. Something a true blocking TE would not need to do.
