As a Jets fan who's seen all of Rhodes game, he is like the Jackl and Hyde of safeties in football.
If it is the 2006-2007 Kerry Rhodes, then its a steal for the Cards. He was an absolute ballhawk, would wrap up his tackles, lead his team, make some crazy interceptions(Especially in 2007).
However if its the 2008-2009 one, he will piss Cards fans off. He plays as if he is owed something and that the coaches should be greatful to have someone like him on a team. He cares more about his modeling career over these past 2 years(Even has a youtube channel called "KerryHollywoodRhodes". Told Braylon Edwards that when coming to the Jets, that it is a much easier place to be then when with Mangini. When benched, he called out the coaches and threw a hissy fit and wanted out of the Jets ASAP. Even during the playoff run, he had a terrible attitude and when the season ended vs IND, he woulden't dismiss as to if he wanted to stay as a Jet.
He whiffed upon tackles(Was it 2 or 3 whiffed tackles he had on Wes Welker last year), looked lost in coverage(Cost us a game vs the Jags when he ****** up a 4th down defensive coverage play as Leonard called on Kerry to come and help him cover Mike Thomas who burned us on that eventual MJD lie down drive) and most of his picks came vs Jake Delhomme. He also likes to prance around during each big play, and he had the audacity to showboat after nailing Rivers for a fumble in a playoff game WHILE THE BALL WAS STILL LOOSE.
Overall he is a bad attitude and doesn't give 2 shits about football. His play decreased once he got his contract, big shocker. Maybe being out of town is gonna be a blessing for Kerry but if the Cardinals get the 2008-2009 Rhodes who was a dog then fans will want him gone ASAP. I have never been so dissapointed in someone so much in my life like with Rhodes. Its like once Revis got so good, Rhodes got jealous and felt insulted that he wasn't the top defensive guy anymore on the team.
I hope Kerry does well but his attitude left a very bad taste in my mouth. Hate those prima donna type of attitudes.
I don't really like this at all. Kerry Rhodes wasn't exactly the cornerstone of the defense, but we really have no other players to fill that position. I think it's a virtual lock at this point that the jets are targeting a rangey cover safety in the draft. A trade up for someone like earl thomas wouldn't suprise me at all given the jets draft history the past few years.
I've been saying for the whole year that the Jets and Rex Ryan would drool over Taylor Mays. I wouldn't be surprised at all if they moved for him were he still there past the top 15.
It was a steal. a top 10- FS for a 4th and 7th. STEAl. Rhodes doesnt have to be the guy in the secondary since they have DRC and the best safety in the game: Wilson.
I ma shocked how the Chiefs wouldnt give up their 3rd and say hi Jets want our third for rhodes?
I like this move a lot.
my scent?...like making love to a lumberjack
<TACKLE> i will ngata give you a bj raji
<+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
<+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

Except for, oh you know, the tiny detail of their difference in positions. If my CB, like Cro, can play bump and run coverage with the best receivers, than I consider tackling just a bonus. He, coupled with Revis, will allow Ryan and Pettine to blitz even more than they already do (most in the league).
However, my safety, especially a safety in a Rex Ryan defense sure as hell better like to tackle, want to tackle and be good at it. Carrie Rhodes doesn't.
Carrie just flat out didn't fit in our system. Once he got his big contract, he cared more about his acting and modeling careers than his football one. Him and Revis were best friends their first few years; always hanging out, constantly studying and watchin film together, but after his big payday, Revis and the rest were extremely annoyed and aggravated at his poor work ethic.
Basically an addition by subtraction for the jets. If he wants to, he can be a good safety; I think that'll last for at most, half a season. He's extremely prideful and will probably try to shut everyone up. My opinion?? I could care less. He's no longer a jet, so how he plays has no baring on my team, unless we meet in the SB.
"When it's third and ten, you can take the milk drinkers and I'll take the whiskey drinkers every time."
Guys....if he couldn't play for Rex...what does that tell you?
Think about it.
Rhodes was a great player when he cared about his career. But he went hollywood and now he's a JAG at best. If he ever gets his head right, he can be good again, but if Rex can't spark a fire in you...who can?
He played in NY, for Rex Ryan. He had it all. And he blew it.
