    Thank God Nick Mangold is sound

    How many people saw their lives flash before their eyes when he seemed to be dead on the field yesterday?

    I was more scared when Wilk went down. Nick's a warrior.

    I think we should put Mark in at Center and let him take the hits.

    Right, people don't realize the value of the center especially one that is snapping to a rookie.

    Eh, you could tell Big Mo was cramping when he went down.....

    When Mangold was just laying there I automatically thought of Colin Baxter and Ngata killing Sanchez......

    Mangold missed two offensive plays, but was back in — wearing a black sleeve on his right arm — on the Jets' next possession

    Tight end Jeff Cumberland also left in the first half with an apparent head injury, but returned at the start of the fourth quarter.

    If Nick went down, Geno might have ended up like Sanchez after that game in Baltimore a few years back ( who was that scrub playing center??). Mark was never the same.

    Are we STILL using that old excuse? I guess week 1 against Buffalo last year doesn't count, eh? No, it only affects him SOMETIMES, right?

    Initial reaction as I sat there in my #74 jersey was OH NOOOOO HERE WE GO.

    As soon as I saw the replay I had a feeling it was just a good knock on the funny bone, and that he was going to be alright.

    He's the one player that could ruin our season out of the gate. Good to see he went right back in on next possession.

    I'm just basing this off of memory, but I think Mark's game took a big turn for the worse after that Raven game. Sure he had some good games since, but overall, he went downhill


    If I cared that much, i'd go look at the stats. But I don't.

    A center doesn't mean that much... On the pass rush, they typically aren't dealing with someone 1 on 1 and that's all you need to know. Usually it's the guards and tackles with the center helping the guards. The center position only means something if the backup can't snap the ball and usually teams can find a competent backup.

    Also worth mentioning that Mangold has 2 times a year where he basically stays down like he was shot by a sniper. Only to usually be fine.

    You clearly don't understand the importance of an OL by the statement you just made......

    Nah, calling out shifts in protection, isn't that important. Not at all.

    I know a lot of you love Mangold at no cost, but I simply maintain that the position isn't very important. When you figure how much centers get paid, it's pretty obvious that the rest of the NFL agrees.

    I don't hate Mangold, I just hate that he eats up a good portion of the team's salary cap.

    There are a few games where Mangold is particularly useful, and the game against Wilfork is one of them so hopefully he does a good job. He's getting paid as such..
