    Yea, I read that article to. They said he has looked better at OLB through the first 4 practices than Gholston did last year through his first 4 practices. If he keeps playing like this he'll make the team. We need some scarlet blood anyways.

    • I would love to see Westerman make this team, apparently I didn't give him enough credit either. Great to get a Rutgers guy on the final roster, and he seems like a good player and a good guy. UDFA's are always fun to root for, Westerman is no different and quickly becoming one of my favorites this year.

      • I hope we really stock up on the LBs. Never can have too many in the 3-4. Still intrigued about Murrell...

        • This is semi random, but a friend of mine called me a few minutes after sanchez got drafted suggesting that he be called the Sanchize. I have forgotten to pass it along until now. During a google search I noticed that it was being discussed as a nickname for Sanchez. I personally love the name and hope that it catches on.

          As for linebackers, I would love to finally have a rutgers guy on the Jets. Im so rabid about my love of Rutgers that I'm holding out hope for Renkhart considering the extra open roster spots this year. In terms of other holdovers from last year, I like Murrell and Trusnik.

            I think Murrell and Westerman may end up battling it out for a roster spot. Could be wrong though. Liked Trusnik as well, and Cummings. We have a lot of younger, UDFA type linebackers who are really intriguing and all should have a great chance to get roster spots, so I'm sure whoever ends up rising to the top of that will remain very intriguing and could have a long-term impact on the defense.

              I heard some calling him "Franchez". I don't know though. I'm of the opinion that quarterbacks really shouldn't have a nickname, but if he's going to get one, anything beats "Dirty".

                Dirty's an old HS nickname of mine, if it wouldn't be a complete waste of 100 bucks I'd get a personalized #6 jersey that says DIRTY on the back for kicks. Agree that's probably not the best nickname for him though lol. Franchez and Sanchize are both solid, but I think Franchez rolls off the tongue a little better. Both are a little premature though, I hope he ends up living up to them. Otherwise his nickname could quickly become Dirty.

                  • I stay away from nicknames, last thing i want is for the NFL to be like the NBA where every single player who sees the floor gets a nickname. That drives me crazy.

                      The only nick name I am interesting in calling him is Super Bowl Champion.

                        derp and stuff with a mc in front of it have become popular recently for whatever reason. I believe everyone's favorite curly blonde haired Italian came up with that one. mcderz, mcderp. I'd be down for pulling derzalicious into the mix though. But I basically learned to respond to anything with a D and a R or a D and a Z in it.


                        ANYWAYS on to significant stuff. PFT is reporting a possible Thomas Jones and other stuff for Braylon Edwards swap. Seems like speculation from the Cleveland end. Frankly, while I'd end up loving the trade eventually, I have reservations. Depends what the something else is of course. But still, right now we'd be replacing Jones with Shonn Greene, and while I love Shonn Greene his issues in the passing game (protection, hands) worry me a bit.

                        The other concern is Edwards seems a little too focused on things off the field (money, acting) and I wonder if he'd just end up being a bust here. If it's Jones and a conditional pick based on performance I guess I could dig it, and that's probably what Tannenbaum will try to pull, but I don't think it's a slam dunk either.

                        EDIT:

                        The "other stuff" in the deal should and probably would include Brad Smith. Still don't think it happens and I'd have reservations, but I'd bet if it happens he's in there. Seems like Smith is the most likely candidate to be the Brett Ratliff of our receivers in Mangini's eyes.

                        • Very interesting article on Braylon Edwards.

                          http://www.profootballtalk.com/2009/...the-big-apple/

                          Thomas Jones for Braylon Edwards?

                          Im all for that trade if it happens. It gives us a true #1 WR threat in Edwards. I dont think we would miss Jones that much. We have Thunder and Lightning in Shonn Greene and Leon Washington. In my opinion this would make our team a lot better.

                          • Because I really like several WRs that could potentially be in next year's draft, I don't know how excited I'd be. Plus, I'd hate to see us give up future draft picks. I'd rather them just overpay in draft choices for Thomas Jones.

                            • I dont want to give up picks either. I also like a couple of WR's in next years draft but by then we may have other needs and we can go in another direction.

                              • One of the thing the Jets FO emphasized during the draft was paying their bills now. They didn't want to trade future picks when they were trading up during the draft and I don't see why they'd be willing to give them up now.
