I happen to agree with Heath about Coples not being a natural fit at OLB but the guy is a dunce. They should escort his lame ass out of Cortland. All he does is wave pom poms for the two scandal ridden organizations he was a part of.
Mornhinweg said the two quarterbacks will be evaluated “every day, every play and every practice.”
When asked what he was looking for in a starter, Mornhinweg sounded like someone expecting to make a choice.
“Normally ... one man significantly removes himself from the other fellas,” he said. “When that happens, there will be a time when we make that call. The tougher one is when it’s very, very close, so we’ll be ready for that. Then you go on some gut instincts there.”
I'm nt disagreeing with your overall assessment as if Coples drops into coverage more than twice a game I would be shocked. When you look at Terrell Suggs in virtually the same role, he had his hand on the ground about 75% of the time and rarely dropped back. So to say Coples is uncomfortable at this point standing up is basically meaningless.
Heath Evans really seems like he has an agenda and should read up on the team he is covering before making observations.
Preseason games will tell us the most in this battle. Saturday will be big as well
Well if I was the comish at the NFL network I would not even bother paying someone to cover jets camp soon as every unit is horse sh1t and we are clearly goin 0-16.
I want the best guy to win the job, and it might take more than 4 practices to prove it.
Either Mark Sanchez beat you up everyday in middle school or you actually are Geno Smith bc the amount of Sanhez hate and Geno manlove (or mancrust) you have is disturbing. To quote another poster on this board, "GOOD GRIEF!"
I'm not saying Coples is going to be great but we have to trust REX on this one.
Also I think people are thinking about this to much in the traditional LB role.
Coples will be a LB as much as T. Suggs is. Its not going to be Coples standing up all the time. We will see his hand in the "fake grass" a lot of the time.

And really doesn't mean he doesn't get enough reps with the starters. Its camp, there are plenty of reps available at this point.
The only advantage to naming the starter earlier is to nip any issues with others on the team aligning with one QB. Doesn't seem to be an issue here
A few days ago Geno Smith was saying how impressive Coples was running step for step with him and his athleticism and now a dope like Heath Evans says otherwise and that's who opinion you go with?
I'll trust Rex Ryan and the players any day over Heath Evans.
