Re: Around the NFL Week 12

I know in the last two weeks, I've heard DeSean Jackson compared to Devin Hester in terms of being just as valuable to the Eagles as Hester is to the Bears in terms of scoring points. He's not. It's not close. Right now, Patrick Peterson is more of an offensive threat for the Cardinals than DeSean is for the Eagles.

In full disclosure, I still fault the Redskins for not taking DeSean in 2008 in a draft where they picked three pass catchers; that was still really dumb. This organization would be in a better spot with DeSean Jackson. But he's not Devin Hester. He's just not.

Needless to say, Devin Hester would have been a better pick than Rocky McIntosh in 2006. Right college team, wrong player.

Chad Jones.....

I like that the Giants stayed with this kid all the way.....

Making His Debut in a Giants Uniform, but a Bigger Dream Awaits
By WILLIAM C. RHODEN
Published: November 28, 2011

When the Giants march onto the Superdome field on Monday night to play the New Orleans Saints, Chad Jones will run out with them. Jones will be wearing his Giants uniform; he will be on the sideline. He will do everything except play.

This is not how Jones, a Louisiana State safety who was a third-round draft pick by the Giants in 2010, had envisioned his debut in a professional uniform.Instead, the dream is still alive and Jones is still a Giant. A remarkable regimen has gotten Jones to a point that he says he is 80 percent back from where he was before the accident.

Two months before the draft, Jones ran 40 yards in 4.57 seconds. Back then, anything slower would have been unacceptable. Last month, when he ran a 40 in 4.8 seconds in a public workout, Jones was ecstatic.

His workouts are more grueling than they were before the accident.

"They're definitely more intense," he said. "I'm running 110-yard sprints for conditioning; I'm doing more in the weight room trying to build my endurance and strength up at the same time."

Chad's presence in New Orleans with the Giants was evidence of the determination of his dream. He has surprised at every turn: walking when some feared he might be wheelchair-bound; running when some thought he might never walk again. Now he is looking to compete for a roster spot in training camp with the Giants next summer.

For now, being with his Giants teammates before a roaring Superdome crowd will suffice.

"I've been anticipating this since the day I woke up after the wreck," he said. "I've been thinking about this, dreaming about this since that day - getting back on the field with my team."

This is not how Chad Jones envisioned his N.F.L. debut; but all things considered, he'll take it.

Compared to Brady/Rodgers he comes up short.

Compared to Tarvaris Jackson, John Skelton, Tyler Palko, Curtis Painter, Blaine Gabbert, Caleb Hanie and Rex Grossman he looks pretty good to me.

[By the way, all those guys above were starting QBs in NFL games last week...]

Except Rex Ryan called him "The Sanchize" in the post-game news conference after the Jets came back to win in the end...

Wow great news. I mean i hope he gets burned every time we play you if he suits up, but great news for him.

And definitely classy not giving up on the kid. Do you know if they had to pay him his contract amount though? I kind of remember that this might have happened right before he signed.

You lost your mind?...lol

Matthew Stafford Stats - Detroit Lions - ESPN


Dude is still balling with a broken finger on his throwing hand. He's definitely worth the #1 selection so far.

Actually, he performs the best when the pressure is on. Look at his playoff stats. They are amazing. It seems he is average to below in the regular season, but becomes elite come playoff time.

Re: Around the NFL Week 12

Should have made Devin Thomas a slot coverage guy, apparently.
