    Replaced by a guy who spent most of career on the practice squad and didn't actually earn the job (Hunter lost the job). Yes, a speed bump is an upgrade over Hunter, but RT is still a problem for the Jets.

    Can't imagine that JAG replacement is much better.

    Hunter's been awful, but this still seems dumb. They didn't plan ahead and have a replacement at the ready, now if they go back to him his confidence will be that much more non-existent.

    Makes you appreciate Belichick, doesn't it? What possible benefit can there be for a head coach announcing that he is benching a starter? People can see it with their own eyes on game day, but why talk about it?

    Andrew Brandt nailed it.

    Depends on the guy. I got booted aside by a new CEO once only to have him ask me to take back a bigger #2 role 6 months later. Comebacks are sweet.

    Seriously. This is the coach who will talk up Aaron Maybin like he's Reggie White. If he says he's "ok", the guy must not have any legs.

    I'll miss watching him get beat right off the snap of the ball. Oh well. I doubt this practice squadder is much better.

    On the plus side, if Howard stinks up the joint, it'll make Jets fans' depression that much sweeter.

    Their problem is exacerbated by their need to think out loud.

    There is an old arabian proverb that cites three things that can't be taken back. One is the spoken word... They should have a guard posted on the Jets OL coach's office...

    I've just seen Howard described as Guard-like during practise. Hopefully he plays like that in game.

    Fair enough (and kudos to you). But I'm guessing you weren't screwing up then the new guy screwed up worse so they went back to you, right?

    This guy had the whole offseason and training camp to beat out Hunter, and he couldn't do it, correct? If that's the case, then he must suck pretty badly. I'd be worried that they might have improved if they'd actually brought in someone new to address the need.

    They did that a couple of times but apparently none of those guys showed any inclination to be upgrades. MacNeil retired after his workout with the JETS. They are down to hoping against hope that some team with an excess tackle who is still breathing can't find a trading partner and cuts him and no one snags him on waivers and they can "land" him and crow about how they have fixed everything and fans can get back to touting Tannenbaum's genius and Rex's charisma. Tanny has already alerted Jetsfans to be on the alert Labor Day Weekend because it's going to be a second coming of draft day for them...LOL

    C'mon, Maybin has been an absolute stud this preseason. And when I say absolute stud, I mean he can't get in the same area code as the opposing QB even against the third stringers.

    Funny, how Maybin looked so great in practice going up against... You guest it - Wayne Hunter.

    And if Vollmer is injured again, aren't we in the same boat? Or do you relish the thought of Cannon or Kopa starting at ROT this season?

    Hopefully THIS time the players will be better than what they usually get on draft day. :D

    As bad as Cannon was, he is no Hunter. Besides, I would assume that both Cannon and Solder would play significantly better with Waters, Mankins, and Connolly (at center) than the motley crew of guards and centers that have been trotted out there the first two games.

    BTW, with a $2.4 million guaranteed salary, Hunter may be the highest paid back up RT in the league.

    Maybe they'll just admit their mistake and cut him; like the Pats would.








    Yeah right!
