Re: Who Will Start, Heyer or Jansen?

Heyer did not look like he was anywhere near ready to start at RT. He looked like a late round pick who needed TE help to get the job done. I like Heyer, he didn't look like a UDFA. and has potential....but he's not better than even an aging Jansen.

IMHO opinion he was doomed to get hurt because when you're slow in a game of speed you're gonna get trampled or rolled up on or something.
Jasen got rolled up on because Jason Taylor should have been called offsides for jumping the snap count. Instead Taylor and Thomas were able to pressure Campbell into the dirt. How does his freak inury have any bearing on his consistency?

The guy is doing his job he just got unlucky that two of his major injuries were at the start of a season and made him miss 31 games.

Bugel put him in the starting lineup in '07. If this injury doesn't hinder him he should pick up where he left off.

What I meant to say is that Jansen's lack of quickness has a major bearing on his likelihood of injury. Slower guys get hurt more. The tapes from last preseason are pretty overwhelming I thought because he actually looked his slowest during the last game against Jacksonville.

Re: Who Will Start, Heyer or Jansen?

I think Jansen is easily the starter but when he goes down Heyer goes in. Lets say Jansen has another season ending injury and Heyer steps in and performs good enough to take the job from Jansen I believe we could be seeing the last of Jansen in a Redskins uni.

I'm hoping Jansen is in better shape and stays healthy.

I wouldnt say you're going too far out on a limb by saying that we wouldnt see jansen again if he goes down with another season ending injury this year, in fact i would be shocked if he wasnt released after yet another season ending injury, especially considering his talent has been in decline a couple of years now.

Re: Who Will Start, Heyer or Jansen?

I agree with the no brainer comment...
Jansen....Heyer is a basic backup right now and though Jansen has declined...he is far more experienced and better than Heyer...
now Wade on the other hand is the more realistic question.

I personally believe Heyer with backup ahead of Wade....because of age, pay and most importantly....performance

Re: Who Will Start, Heyer or Jansen?

At first when I saw this thread I thought it an almost ridiculous question, but I gave it a thought & read the original post, which said that Heyer is making major progress in the offseason. If that's true I could almost see it happening in the same fashion that Montgomery became a starter last year.

I'm hoping Jansen is up to the task & the job is his to lose. He's a bit slower & has problems w/speed rushers, but Heyer got manhandled on bull rushes by P. Kearnery in the playoffs. His strength seems far away from being starting material, but maybe that's changed.

Re: Who Will Start, Heyer or Jansen?

While I don't think Heyer played all that well last year, I do believe he showed promise enough to make the coaches believe with some good training he can become a good player. I think a lot of people were expecting more of him, but for me, the fact that he was an undrafted free agent rookie who ended up getting a lot of playing time in his rookie season, well he performed good enough for me to believe that with some help from Buges he can become a quality backup.

Re: Who Will Start, Heyer or Jansen?

I think Jansen has lost a lot with the injuries. I think Heyer has a good chance to beat him out. The best thing about fresh coaching staffs is they have nearly no attachment to most of the players -- that means production talks.

Even if Jansen does get the start, I give him 4 games till he's done again. I just dont know if he can hold up anymore. He was great for years, but we're going to start moving on.

But don't you think Buges will still have a major say on which OLine start?

I think Jansen will be great again this year. I don't think he's been the same since his good friend and former roommate Ramsey was benched but I think he wants to prove that he's not an injury prone aging lineman.

Re: Who Will Start, Heyer or Jansen?

There is no garuntee any player anywhere will not go down with the same injury Jansen did . That kind of injury does not make you injury prone just unlucky .

People tend to forget that for 2 years Jansen has had his normal duties co-oppted to a drgree . He is knownas a powerful run blocker and for the past two years he has been the blind side protector for the left handed Brunell which requires slightly different style of playing, ligher more athletic ..

IMHO opinion he was doomed to get hurt because when you're slow in a game of speed you're gonna get trampled or rolled up on or something. Hopefully, he's started to take better care of himself and increased his quickness. I've been a little pessimistic about Jansen since I heard him complain of the heat in D.C. and admit that he "eats like crap." With millions on hand I might think about hiring a chef who can satisfy my appetite and keep me in tip-top shape - how is it that half of hollywood does it but it's somehow too much to ask of a professional athlete?
Most OLinemen eat like crap, are the slowest guys on the field, and hate temps above 55 degrees. Flexibility, hand quickness, brute strength and footwork are far more important for the position than speed. Could you imagine Walter Jones, Matt Lyght, Steve Hutchinson or any other elite lineman outrunning any non-Olineman on their respective teams?
