Marcus Mason signed by the Jets off Ravens practice squad

THE NEWS

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

The TE Position, 2 Active Roster Additions

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.

MY VIEW

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.

Re: Marcus Mason signed by the Jets off Ravens practice squad

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.

Re: Marcus Mason signed by the Jets off Ravens practice squad

If he's lucky, Marcus Mason may 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

Re: Marcus Mason signed by the Jets off Ravens practice squad

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.

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

Re: Marcus Mason signed by the Jets off Ravens practice squad

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.

Re: Marcus Mason signed by the Jets off Ravens practice squad

I've said so many different ways I'll say it again....you can't judge a player by his preseason play only. I know it goes both ways. Some say he would not do well up against 1st stringers. There was a lot of things going on during preseason. They kept using different linemen to see which was the best group to pair up. The linemen were not opening the holes for Portis or Betts either.
Some say Mason led the NFL in rushing yrds during preseason. There's no denying that but some say he did it against 2nd and 3rd stringers.

I would like to believe it lies somewhere in between. The perfect way to judge Mason would have been to get Portis in a game where he's running all over the place and then stick in Mason and see the difference. I can only hope the coach's would be evaluating a player based off of his talent and talent ability vs his preseason play only.

In my little mind I like to think Mason has the talent and ability but simply didn't have the chance to show it outside of preseason. The Skins had more needs at other positions that they felt was more important then to keep 4 RB's. Who knows if the Skins didn't contact Mason and ask him if he would like to come back and he said no. We might never know. There's more to it then simply pulling someone from someones practice squad.

We also can't judge the TTB (Tip-Toe Burgler, SA) on 2 games only. He knows the plays but does not know the run blocking or pass blocking schemes on every play. He has not taken a hit for over 6 months. The TTB is no pound the ground RB he's more of a finess RB that will juke a defensemen out of his shoes. It will take time for him to get up to speed but like has been said in other threads we needed someone to step in right away and contribute while Betts was out not some one who needs time to learn the game and learn to take a hit again and was hired based on a deteriorating past performance. Oh and 'cause he was a MVP. (ooooh, aaaaaah)
