What's up guys?
Been a reader for far too long and have wanted to post in the past but I'm a lazy one.
So I vulture and enjoy a lot of what goes on here and it's very much appreciated.
But a disgruntled Jet fan can only take so much before He must be heard.
Jump with me will you?
When asking ourselves - What is the identity of our beloved Jets?
The easy most common answer will be our Defense. There would be nothing wrong
with that except for the fact that our offense is a horrible dance partner.
When we need to put a face to our "defensive identity" we think of our stud corner who can do
no wrong. Problem here is that He is not our leader not by voice and not by example, He just happens
to be special in a Rain Man sort of way. So we go back to Rex as our default identity of the team, I would have
no problem with it (I think we would all rather it be a player though) except that our "leader" is not equipped
either mentally (I love Rex by the way) or personnel-wise (Mike T, pay attention now!) .
This is where with one gutsy move our entire team has a chance to fulfill it's potential.....
We need a RB, We are lying to ourselves when we repeat this ground and pound mantra.
We need a RB, it is the one catalyst that gives everything a chance to fall into place.
We need a RB, not just a guy that can run into a pile and pickup 5 yards and be commended.
We need a RB, Someone that can be a threat so Sanchez can lean on him and open up the passing game.
We need a RB, one that can do it all not just a Benson, Greene, Turner type.
.......................................I want Steven Jackson!
If it's at all possible let's make it happen, shouldn't cost too much, still has the skills, does it all and has
done it with worse O-lines than the Jets had last year. Let's get a warrior on offense that answers so many
of our teams problems by just taking the field. All of a sudden you think of the Jets and you think of S-Jax
and our nasty D, get this man and we ride him for the next 2 years and look for his replacement but we are
now the ground and pound Jets just like our current Identity (Rex) likens us to be.
