    Bailry was too risky for my blood as well. I am also not sure he was the hitter/tackler that I would want in a LB.

    Hobson seems like a slight reach where we took him but he does hit like a truck.

    Big Deal, He pulled a muscle...........Somebody stop the presses. I heard that Bailey got dirt in his eye too on saturday, He needed to wash it out with water. His girlfriend blew into his eye a few times and now he is ok.

    If "Bailey picks up where he left off", He'll have 114 tackles, 6 sacks, 3 interceptions,3 blocked kicks and be voted team MVP because that's where the so called "workout warrior" left off in Georgia.

    There are alot of players that I would have taken ahead of him in last weeks draft. I'm glad that The Jets got Robertson. It was a brilliant move and I praised it when it happened. Just because I praised Bailey and would have loved to have seen him in a Jets uniform, doesn't mean that I think that he was the best player to come out this year.

    So what, a few draft experts like Mel Kiper think that he's not a fully polished product. Kiper is the guy that thought that Andre Ware was going to be a great player that dominated this league for years.

    The injury thing with Bailey is going to be an issue, but when he is on the field, he's going to be a big time play maker. There's never been a 6'3 233 pound linebacker with his kind of physical tools. He was the best cover linebacker that I have ever seen in college and he was such a great playmaker on defense/special teams and more importantly a great leader in college. Is there a chance that he won't make it in the pros??? Sure, None of these rookies are a guarantee and the only thing that is going to hold Bailey back is injuries.

    Couldn't agree more. Think the Lions got a steal down there with him. Think he will be a player like Santana. Tremendous upside..................................If you can keep him on the field

    Fellas, I don't think he's ready for Injured Reserve just yet.

    Why don't you wait and see how he actually performs this year, before annointing yourselves as great seers of all things football.

    All the way to the top of the second had to make you think though, huh? Just shows you what the NFL/agent/scout fluff machine can do for a player before the actual coaches get their hands on a player

    I wish him well, but he would not have been a good fit for the Jets, and he'll suffer heavily on that concrete field in Detroit. Poor bastard!

    agreed, me and youngjetsfan were the biggest Boss supporters, and I'll stick to my word

    YJF, i couldnt have said it better

    he pulled a muscle, so what.....hes still the perfect cover-2 LB, and hes more of a cover-2 LB than anyone we have. He probably runs as fast as anyone on our defense, maybe faster

    i still want him on the Jets, he is perfect for our defense, and you cant call him a flop until the season is done.

    he pulled a muscle, so what......Curtis Martin hurt his ankle last year, and look what he did at the 2nd half of the season

    bottom line: Bailey is a future star

    Ahhhhhhhhh, you young guys. So excited by the flashy car, the girl with the huge bags, the sparkly bling-bling.

    Well, take it from me, that flashy hot-rod is always in the shop, the girl with the huge bags will nail your brother behind your back and give you both crabs, and that sparkly bling-bling will turn your wrist green.

    Later in life, when you're not so dazzled by the flashy-dashy, you'll understand that quality isn't measured in the here and now, it is measured over the long haul. Boss is fast, he is exciting, but the man already needs new struts, and he ain't even opened it up yet. PASS!

    The funny thing is that during day 2 of The NFL draft on ESPN. Ed Werder stated that St.Louis was going to draft Bailey at 12 before Kennedy fell to them. According to Werder, Parcells tried to move to late first round/early 2nd to draft Bailey. Tampa Bay also made calls to Cincy and Detroit to come up and get Bailey. That should tell you something right there.

    When The draft hit the 14th pick, Alot of teams starting ignoring quality and just drafted based on needs. That's why alot of quality players slipped. The injury issues were a big time reason that Bailey slipped out of the first round. There's no question about it. Knowing the type of player Bailey is, Falling to the 2nd round will only serve to motivate him even further. Here's a guy who proved all the critics wrong when they said, that he wouldn't be able to make it back from 2 serious injuries and he became an even better player when he returned from injury and the scary thing is, he's only scratched the surface. He can get better.

    Ford Field in Detroit is not Veterans Stadium. It's not exactly a dangerous field. Actually it was voted by The NFL players union as one of the best playing surfaces in the entire league. Bailey is going to be super fast on that field. I have no idea how Detroit is going to use him. I heard that they are going to play him on the strong side , which is where bailey played in college and played well there. I would have put him on The weak side and let him have the freedom to roam. with 4.3 to 4.4 speed on a fast surface, he could be a hell of a blitzer in this league. He had 6 sacks last year at Georgia from the strongside. With his leaping ability, he could knock down alot of balls at the line of scrimmage as well. He needs good coaching but with his amazing athletic ability, you can just put him on the field and watch him make big plays. He's so gifted, that he can overcome his own mental mistakes. That's what really struck me watching him in college.

    Even though, I don't agree with you on this player.
    This was a brilliant post. Extremely funny.

    Boss Bailey= Rey Ordonez???????????

    I don't remember Ordonez ever being the flashy car, "big fun bags" or a bling bling type of player. As a matter of fact, He was the exact opposite. He was a pocket calculator, #2 pencil and glass of milk type player. A defensive specialist with no flash or power.

    Although, it's kind of funny that Ordonez has better offensive numbers than Mike Pizza thus far.

    lol YJ. The analogy is that Rey always made plays twenty feet deep in the hole that nobody else makes, and then he'd bungle the easy play. I loved Boss in college, and it was always exciting to watch him chasing freaking WR's down from behind, but I still believe that he is best suited for a different kind of defense.

    The ironic thing is that if Robertson pans out and offensive guards can't just release off the snap because of DR, that Boss would be a better fit here next year. This year, if we hadn't gotten DR, there's no way that Josh Evans and Fergie would draw enough attention to protect Boss-man.
