Do we really miss these players?

 

Been a lot of talk about LDT slowing down and the Jets need Kerry Rhodes; this is just a comparison between the players the Jets let go and the players that replaced them. Just a note, LDT has slowed down, but it seems like the Jets have changed the way they are running him. I could be wrong, but I feel like the Jets were running him outside earlier in the season. I do know, that in the last few games SG has gotten all the pitch runs, while LDT has run more between the tackles. I believe LDT is the running back the Jets need more in space. Also, he was averaging 5.5 yards a carry earlier in the season. There was no way he was going to keep that pace. No poll, just would like to hear some opinions on this matter.

  Thursday’s game not included due to Thomas Jones not playing his 11th game yet. As you can see the two players numbers are similar when it comes to rushing the ball. You really can’t measure this stat due to the players having played against different opponents. However, LDT receiving stats show why it was a great decision to pickup LDT and let go Thomas Jones. Combined LDT already has over 1000 all purpose yards, while TJ receiving yards + rushing does not even add up to LDT rushing yards alone.

Ok, this is no contest. Apparently, Leon is not in Seattle running plans. He does have a great 5.9 rushing average, but only 18 rushes in ten games is about 1.2 rushing attempts per game. I did think Shonn Greene would have a more productive year, but now hearing reports that he came to camp out of shape.  Also, see John B. article on Brad Smith replacing Leon Washington.

Again, statistics can be misleading. Rhodes has an unordinary amount a tackles for a safety. To have this many tackles means either as safety you play a lot of run support and is getting to the ball carrier; or it means the defense you on is terrible and most of the safety tackles is deep in the back end. Either way it seems like Kerry is having a decent season in Arizona. Brodney Pool, while disappointing he has not been more of a factor in the Jets secondary, seems to come up with a game saving/changing play every now and then. Back to mister Rhodes, I probably was one of the first people on this site who insisted the Jets miss him. However, miss him or not, my beef with the Jets for trading him was they could have gotten more for him. He was a cancer whom seem like he was jealous of the players Rex brought in from Baltimore. I admit the Jets probably miss him in the secondary, but as a fan, I don’t miss him
