    Rhodes didn't know his assignment in a game with Jax. Mercedes Lewis blew by him in the seam for a big play helping close out a Jax win.

    (I believe he lost his starting job after that).

    Rhodes didn't know his assignment at the end of the 1st half of the AFC Championship Game leading to a 4 play 80 yd drive in which a TD pass was completed to exactly where Kerry was supposed to be.

    The Results speak for themselves and is why Rex/Pettine jettisoned the guy. He simply couldn't be trusted.
    Yeah he had a few mental lapses, didn't always tackle like he could, but he made up for it with big plays and turnovers and generally shutting down opposing tight ends week after week......Right before Rex got here he was literally our best and most effective pass rusher on the team as a safety as well and still was solid in this role

    Our defense in 09 with Rhodes on the team was the best Jets D I've ever seen.....such a mistake to go with Smith/Leonhard over him

    Yeah, losing a guy like Jenkins from 09 to the 10 season wasn't a factor. Kerry Rhodes, who was one of the lesser factors in that 09 D was. LOL

    Funny, is it on him that the D wasn't better before 09 and Rex came to the Jets? He only gets credit for 09? When has at his Jet worst?

    He was a player at times. Just not often enough. No one makes up for poor play, blown assignments and giving away points due to lackadaisical play.

    HE made the personal decision that his football career would only be important UNTIL he started acting full time. Then it didn't matter. And even before that, he would give what effort he deemed to be ENOUGH.

    Sherry has no one to blame but himself.
    I remember him being the best overall safety the Jets have had in the last 10 years, and one of the few safeties that could consistently cover a tight end. He was a terrific blitzer and had a knack of being around the ball. He was not in an in the box safety. Eric Smith was, Rex loved him and he conistently hurt the team. Kerry was a large part of the reason we had a truly dominant defense, but he was Hollywood. Such crap.

    I think Kris Jenkins had a lot more to do with the dominance of that Defense.
    Carrie was bltching it out as he normally did.
    He most certainly didn't make or break ANY D we've had.

    Let's dispel the notion that Kerry Rhodes is anything other than a very athletic guy who has completely wasted his potential. He is a free safety. Really good Free Safeties intercept the ball. In 118 career games, he has 23 interceptions. That is a 16 game season average of 3.12.

    Let's compare that to Eric Smith, who played more SS than FS. In 96 career games, he has 6 career interceptions for a 16 game season average of 1.00

    Delving a little deeper we see that Rhodes started 116 of his 118 games, while Smith started only 36 of his 96 career games. I would take this as a safe bet that Rhodes has a considerable advantage over Smith in snaps played.

    What does this mean? It means that Rhodes performed only marginally better than a slow-footed career back-up who started for a little more than 2 seasons because the Jets had crappy Safeties. In other words, why pay Rhodes to be on your team when he is just a little better than a guy off
    the street.

    Gay or not, (not that it really matters) Rhodes is over-valued by many for no apparent good reason other than he looks like he should be a really good FS.

    I remember when Rex first got here he brought in Douglas, Scott and Leonhard to help bring the rest up to speed learning the D.

    Guys like Revis, Harris and Jenkins learned from these men, but Rhodes was having fits because he wasn't making the calls and wouldn't defer to Leonhard in this area and was being a pain in the ass. Too bad, if he put the team first and gave it his all he would of been one of the best FS in the league all while wearing green and white.

    For some reason everyone seems to forget that part... That and he was soft and Rex was too mean for his comfort.

    They also seem to forget that he sucked his last couple of years.

    He only began to play when people couldn't see him doing nothing in AZ. Then he became a stud.

    So riddle me this Ruth Bader Ginsburg...

    WHY do you think Sherry doesn't have a job right now?
    OMG you calling him Sherry. That is so funny. I get it.

    Well, he did not steal millions dollars from a dying old man. If he did, we would call him "Belly Rhodes".

    It's pretty hilarious that a man's sexual orientation is the hottest thread on the strip, especially for those posting that this certain topic "disgusts."

    Ha, "personal beliefs." I used to read the book that gave me my "personal beliefs." I too had my parents, teachers and priests tell me what my "personal beliefs" were. I'm sure that you don't shave your beard, eat shellfish or wear clothing with mixed fibers because that would be against the "personal beliefs" that were spoon fed to you. Did you ever really read that book? It's filled with homicide, infanticide and genocide. Not exactly a book of moral code.

    Gay people have flags, bumper stickers and parades to "promote" their "agenda" because of intolerant people like you. They aren't promoting an agenda, they are just trying to be treated exactly like a straight person. Nobody bats an eyelash if a straight couple is canoodling on the street, but when two guys are doing the same thing, intolerant people like yourself get their panties in a bunch.

    Jenkins was obviously much more of a factor.....But I think that a season into Rex's system, Kerry Rhodes would have been even better going into 2010 and beyond......His athleticism and natural ability blew away the guys that we tried to replace him with......I admit he struggled on occasion the last year with us but I think he would have been back to his Mangini-form going forward

    We certainly missed Kerry back there in 2010 and 2011......Bell and Landry were fine though last season

    Agreed 100%.....He made big, game changing plays.....How quickly fans forget

    Agreed he had more to do with it, but we missed Rhodes as well......Especially when you replace him with absolute trash like Eric Smith, essentially

    To suggest that Rhodes is just marginally better than Eric Smith is asinine......Rhodes is a good (Not very good or even elite, but "good) starting free safety. Eric Smith is an absolute liability out there with little to no playmaking skills. It's not a comparison.

    To just base it off of purely interceptions is also way off base.......Rhodes shut down some of the better tight ends out there, while Eric Smith got burned routinely by the worst.......What about the times Rhodes would go crazy off the edge with the strip sacks? Those gamechanging plays don't count? I've literally never seen Eric Smith do anything "great" for our team.....I recall plenty of big plays when it comes to Rhodes

    Again, not even a comparison

    What game changing plays? The guy has been a starter for 8 full seasons and has 8 Forced Fumbles and 13 sacks. He may flash on rare occasions, but there is a reason the Jets got rid of him and the Cardinals arrived at the same conclusion. While he may "flash" every now and then, he lacks any kind of consistency or toughness. If he was more than marginally better than any old spare part you could stick out there at FS, he'd be on a team.
