    Whats wrong with Coples ?

    He made just one play. I kept looking at him the whole game when he was in he looks so lazy and like he doesnt want to be out there. He looks so sluggish and out of position. It sucks to see physically gifted people waste there talent espwciLly if they are JETS

    Maybe his ankle bone still has a crack in it... or maybe the screw in there feels funny.
    Or possibly doubled?

    We have a DT playing OLB. That's what's wrong with him

    Coples is a 3-4 DE or a 4-3 DT.

    His best year in college was his JR year. He played DT and after the season many thought he was a top 5 pick. His final year they moved him to DE in a 4-3 and he disappeared. That's why he dropped in the draft.
    He's an inside player. He can rush the passer better from the inside. He's not an edge player.

    He not a John Abraham, Demarcus Ware or other hybrids that can play DE or OLB. He's a DT or 3-4 DE...He's completely out of position.

    he was getting constant double teams and still generated pressure on many plays, forcing Ryan into rushed throws.

    people will see what they want to see, however.

    I think lazy is waaaaaaaaay too harsh. I saw him taking on two blockers quite a bit. Sometimes you just have to be the unsung hero for a game or two. Hopefully when Richardson or Wilkerson are getting doubled (because you know they will from here on out quite a bit) it will open things for Coples. Too early to criticize his performance, especially considering he broke his ankle a few weeks ago.

    He's half as*ing it because his real dream is to become an NFL QB. And rumor has it he hates Geno and is deeply jealous of him.

    i Rrichardson, Wilkerson,and Harrison,were getting doubled at one point or another throughout the game,and coples did NOTHING.

    2nd week back from a broken foot? why are peopole so crazy about this guy. He had 5.5 sacks last year in limited time missed 5 weeks I believe this year to a fracture ...give him some time to get in shape.

    Why don't you tell us all since you are so convinced he's no good at olb you must be paying very close attention. My guess is you have no idea though.

    Why are you insulting me. I mean really.How many 290lb olbackers are there in the league. Have you been watching, i don't think so.You seriously believe that the falcons were putting two guys on Coples, when Wikerson and harrision command double teams almost every down.In the titan game, Coples was being blocked more than a few times by thier tight end,and did nothing.I have nothing against Coples. He's playing out of position,if you can't see that, im sorry.we can agree to disagree.But don't insult me,its nothing personal.

    Exactly....that plus he is coming off of injury and missed nearly half of camp......

    I will wait before I write him off and say he can't play OLB in this league
