Marcus Mason signed by the Jets off Ravens practice squad
 
[B][I]THE NEWS[/I][/B]

Running back [B]Marcus Mason[/B] was signed by the Jets off of the Baltimore practice squad, according to NewYorkJets.com.

Mason actually led the NFL in rushing yards in the preseason, and with the team putting Jesse Chatman on IR, Mason becomes a special teams and depth player.

[B][I]MY VIEW[/I][/B]

The Redskins should have signed Marcus Mason instead of Shaun Alexander. Mason produced in the Redskin scheme, he could have also helped the special teams.

Well good luck to Mason, I guess he may get a chance to show his stuff. I am happy for him.

We will see if he can average more than 2.1 yards per carry. :)

Hey, he's finally on an active NFL roster. That's a good first step. We'll see if he can lead the league in rushing when it counts or have even a fraction of the success that Alexander has had.

We will see how he does against real NFL players and not 3rd stringers. He hasn't proven anything at this level. If he does, good for him. But I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't.

If he's lucky, Marcus Mason [I]may[/I] have as a good a career as Kenny Watson - a third string back on a bad team that occassionally gets him some good carries.

You know who led the league in rushing in the 2007 preseason? Thomas Clayton. Who? Exactly. And Quincy Wilson was tied for the lead in 2006. Who??? Exactly

I think everyone knows, or SHOULD know by now, how different each one of us feels about Mason vs Alexander. ONLY TIME WILL TELL. This thread should be renamed "Beating A Dead Horse". Don't forget, it was SPECULATION that drove gas prices so high. :bdh:

had is the appropriate word..



Congrats MM

I will bet anything that if he gets the chance to play he will shine. he might be just what the Jets need because their running game isn't producing and he might be a good switch up to spell Thomas Jones for a couple of carries (I bet he will do better than tip-toe burglar - 2.1 yards per carry)..stay tuned..lol

If they need a practice squad player to boost their running game, they're already in serious trouble. I wish him the best, I'm just not counting on him becoming the next great thing in the NFL.

I hope he does well, never really got on the whole MM bandwagon, but I have nothing against the man.
