Re: Jon Jansen: Starter Next Year?

If Jansen is healthy then he needs to be the guy. I think he should be able to give us a few more productive seasons. He might not be the best in the league. But I would feel a lot better about the Giants game this weekend if he were playing.

Jansen is only 31, he'll be 32 next season which is still pretty young for an OL. He could play another 4-6 years, OL usually last long and he'll come back strong. Nothing to worry about, what we need are backup G/C combination type players another T wouldn't hurt. Heyer will be a solid backup next year.

Wow, I mean Jansen is no all-pro like some folks in here think but I can't believe some of you guys want to push him to the back of the line. Are you kidding me? He'll turn 32 next season and he'll have at least two more good years left in him. If he is healthy he would be my starter.

Re: Jon Jansen: Starter Next Year?

Unless they draft someone or aquire someone out of FA I feel with the current roster he will start. Heyer is great he stepped in and help us this season but he isn't a starter just yet.

There is no right tackle on the team better than Jansen, so he has to start. I think he needs to start doing some Ray Brown yoga to avoid these injuries.

Not much you can do to prevent broken bones.

Jansen starts. Maybe we'll get lucky and he'll break his thumbs again next year. Everyone said he played great when those damn clubs on his hands.

Re: Jon Jansen: Starter Next Year?

If Jansen is healthy, then he's starting no doubt. IMO he's our second best run blocker behind RT. I think we should just hold on to Heyer and groom him slowly.

Yea, its not like Jansen is falling apart via tears, pulls, etc. He had a ankle broken in half, his thumbs broken in half. He needs to be in there next year w/out question.

Besides who's a better alternative? I'll take my chances w/ Jansen, a true redskin.

But we all know you can't have a good offense when you keep everyone in to block and don't send any people out in routes. We need to draft a RT and a guard.
Jansen had a great game against Julius Peppers toward the end of last season. That alone tells me that he has something left in the tank and should be starting next season.

Re: Jon Jansen: Starter Next Year?

Jansen isn't a top 5 RT but he is in the top 15. He is a great run blocker and w/o lefty MB starting that is more important than his pass blocking skills(which are better than average).

Re: Jon Jansen: Starter Next Year?

This guy is a top 5 RT why else would he get a nice extension. The guy played with 2 casts in his hands last year and held his own, this year went down the drain, also 05 was an injury year. He's had bad luck, when healthy he basically shuts down Strahan and pretty much any other great DE. He has a lot to proof, if the team cuts him they'll regret it.

Mark my words, if Heyer plays well he is our starter next year. Jansen will be our back up and Wade will be gone. The reason Wade will be gone is because, it would cost to much to cut Jansen. Jansen should have been cut this year, instead of that stupid contract that the Redskins gave him.

We have some GLARING issues, but biggest of all is that we're the oldest team in the NFL. We're only getting older. This means we have a lot of holes to fill. If Jansen is healthy, he'll play, but we need a young back up plan.

Re: Jon Jansen: Starter Next Year?

It's kind of funny to read through comments about Jansen (or several other o-linemen, for that matter) and continually see "he's great, as long as he's healthy." That kind of sums up the squad, don't it? Maybe Jansen's had bad luck but there damn well better be a lessoned learned - we need to invest in talented backup lineman so that every other season doesn't go down the tubes w/ 1 or 2 injuries on the line.

The more I evaluate the team the more obvious it is that o-line needs to be the priority in the draft. Our offensive scheme has required a guy who can pull hard to open up sweeps etc. How the f could the coaches not have a back-up plan in case the one guy consistently effective when pulling (RT) goes down to injury? It's almost inexplicable. If you want to be running team then ya damn well better consider the contingencies to keep the running game alive if 1 or 2 pieces of the puzzle get tossed from the board.

All that aside, I too can't see Jansen getting cut, but I'll be very worried if he's the starter and only Wade and Heyer are backing him up. JJ got pounded in the preseason (as many of you have pointed out). I kept watching him get beat or just flat overpowered and then wonder "is this guy a liability out there?" I guess if he comes back real strong w/ a lot of grit then he should probably start, but coaches need to be "real smart" about him - if his progress in offseason is questionable I think we need a stud o-tackle in the draft (maybe 1st round if there's a super stud) IMO.

Who are the elite tackles coming out of the draft?
