    I don't see him as a "weak armed QB." He had arm strength, but was inaccurate and didn't appear to be learning the system well.

    They asked BB about this on WEEI today and he said pretty much the same thing. If you study tape you know what's coming and the few wrinkles they might unmask (balanced against all the other plays to be made) doesn't warrant a roster spot for information gathering when those are so valuable.

    Unless their coaches are so freakin' dumb they NEED our warmed over QBs to help them...

    And it's not like O'Connell understood the offense anyway.

    It doesn't if you're BB... it might if you're a fathead shhh for brains like Rex Ryan.

    Wasn't there one of these "we pick up one of yours and you pick up one of ours" involving Tim Dwight before the '07 opener??????

    I hope the pats had O'Connell running wildcat in the preseason. Then the Jets will gameplan for it!

    I think by now, if the Jets don't know what is coming, they never will.

    I think that that is a VERY fair statement.

    I also think the Jets will handily start the season at 0-5 .. :cool:

    The Lions put in a claim for Kevin O’Connell knowing two things: One, they really didn’t want him, and two, they knew that among the Jets, Browns and Broncos, one of those teams would be willing to give them a late draft choice. Clearly, the Jets, Browns and now the Broncos are very predictable with their personnel acumen.




    That paragraph indicates to me that the Lions are smarter than the Jets.

    That kind of insight and thinking is probably beyond Wrecks' IQ level.

    BTW . . . anyone else think that the rule should be changed to the PS signing rule? [If you sign a player off someone else's practice squad, you have to keep that player on your 53-man roster for a minimum of three weeks.]
