    Most CB's, even the great ones in the current NFL or past, never had aspirations to be a CB anyways. They were wide receivers or running backs that couldn't cut it, so the coaches had them switched them to CB's because they had the athleticism to play that position.

    I suppose you never know that it could actually work out but more realitsically it reeks of desperation. This really reflects the Jets' drafting woes. They had a nice run of draft picks in that era where they netted Pennington, Revis, Mangold, D'Brick, Harris, Leon Washington and the like.

    But, man, in recent years, their drafts have been awful. McKnight, Shonn Greene, Sanchez, Wilkerson (he was just abused Sunday), Kylie Wilson, that softie guard from UMass, et al. Not sure if they lost some good scouts, or whether they just got lucky on some picks previously, but Good God man, that is some horrible drafting the past few years. It's obviously starting to show. They have a roster of guys who have already hit their ceiling or are in decline. That's why the Jets are decidedly in arrow down mode.

    I can just imagine if the boogie man, Jeff Ireland had tried something like this.

    I guess this is just something that elite franchises do, man.
    I clicked Thanks, but then thought to myself...

    You ARE being sarcastic right?

    It appears Rex is Blowing for Barkley

    ---------- Post added at 05:15 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:15 PM ----------

    Vernon Gholsten is still available Rex
    C. Patterson gets indefinitely suspended for "not showing up" and Buttfumble got a raise for "not showing up" - go figure how the JESTS world works?
