thank god he's gone.
I didn't like him from the first day. So lanky and stupid. He seemed to think that it was owed to him or that it was just "his". AFter 3 nfl camps he didn't seem to understand that you have to work for it, fight for it if you want to keep it.
The deal was sealed for me last year when I saw him attempt to basket catch a long pass that the defender was able to break up because he didn't extend his arms and instead tried to basket catch it. A complete waste.
thankfully tannenbum is supposedly going to miami as a consultant or even a gm prospect. He'll sink their ass quick.
People should just go watch some Randy Moss highlights to see where Hill lacked... similar height and speed but Randy had stickum on his hands. Belichick called him the most intelligent football player he's ever coached. I'd put a bit of weight on that. Size and speed are only half the battle in the NFL.
Just did not work out...glad the Jets cut ties....if a player does not pan out...we move on.
Speaking of former 2nd round busts, Vlad Ducasse made the Vikings roster.
Yellow. Jacket. 'Nuff said.Vladimir Ducasse, G/T, Minnesota
For the second straight week, Ducasse flashed with an outstanding block. You can see the play here. Witness how he shoves one guy out of the play to the left and then turns around and shoves the other guy to the right like he’s shifting furniture. He had one other good block where he pulled to the outside and rocked a defensive played on the edge. Ducasse also showed consistency as a pass blocker, with no pressures allowed in 24 pass block snaps. Ducasse still looks a bit rough round the edges at times, but he continues to be a heck of a specimen.
And this argument about offense vs defense is missing the point entirely. It's about balance. If you are overbalanced as many of these uber-finesse teams are, you're going to get rocked. That's been a consistent theme throughout NFL history.
This is what the Jets are building towards...balance. They added a few nice pieces on offense, will continue next year (thru draft and cap space) and are developing a young QB to manage the game and with a current slight hiccup at CB, are reloading the defense to stay strong there. As a fan, if you can't see what's being built then you're not looking past the superficial exterior of the team. This team is being groomed for long-term sustained winning. If it happens some this year, it's gravy. This team will be at it's strongest once Brady and Manning are wrapping up their careers and I hope to see a rude exit for both as a fan, nothing malicious as they've been upstanding HOF QB's. Regime change is undergoing.

Giants 2011 - 8th in overall offense , 5th in passing, 25th in overall defense
Ravens 2012 - 10th in overall offense , 13th in passing , 12th in overall defense
Hawks 2013 - 8th in overall offense , 25th in passing , 1st in overall defense.
So yes your argument clearly supports the fact that the defenses were dominant(SEA only) with poor offenses. . Maybe do some research to support your facts.
meh what do i know.
So it speaks volumes that this kid wasn't picked up off waivers by any of the 31 other teams....I mean he's only 23, probably no chance he'd come back to our practice squad considering all the negativity in this market around him.
This is why people here do not take you seriously. Rhetoric like barely lost and easily won when they were huge favorites is just plain wrong. You should get real if you are going to post here.
