    Man, and to think how angry the Jets fans around here got when we kept trying to tell them that he isn't very good. The ultimate one-trick pony. Speed was all that he ever had, and he needs to just come to terms with that. When he came into the league and bulked up to be an every-down player, he lost his speed and got cut by Buffalo.

    Following that, he actually made a smart move: he dropped the weight, and had some limited success with the Jets as a pass-rushing specialist who was a massive liability in every other phase of the game. Far from ideal, but you can put him on the field on third-and-long, at least. It's better than being out of the league entirely.

    Naturally, he spent this offseason bulking up again to become an every-down player, since apparently nobody learned anything from his stint in Buffalo. Everything that's happened with him this season could be easily seen coming from a mile away. Didn't even require prediction: just watching history repeat itself.

    Every once in awhile, situations like this come up. When they do, I can't help but wonder how so many people, whose entire livelihood is based on knowing this stuff, can miss something so obvious.

    These are good. From the JI septic tank on Maybin.


    Smart personnel move. Maybin was only effective on passing downs when Revis and Cro would blanket opposing WRs and give Maybin enough time to be forcefully thrown 30 yards into the backfield, re-group, and then sack the QB from behind as he held the ball.



    Maybin gets into his car from the passenger side because he can't get around the car to get in on the driver's side. :rofl:

    Ah, time again to reminisce about a classic Bill Simmons tweet. After the Bills drafted this guy and signed Merriman, he wrote (to paraphrase) "the Bills have added a Maybin and a has-been." Guess Maybin turned out to be a never was.

    Their players all turn out to be busts; Hali, Posluszny, Lee, Bowman, Odrick, Wake, etc. Don't quit your day job and become a comedian.

    I'll have to agree with you there,I loathe the Nittany Liars in college like I loathe the Steelers in football

    But Jack Ham was an awesome player,I did respect him,despite his school and team :)

    The coverage sack king is available. Most overrated player in the NFL last year. On virtually all of his sacks last year, he was easily blocked initially and only got the sack because Revis forced the opposing QB to hold onto the ball too long or tuck it and run.

    If the guy could cover, I would say sign him and convert him to safety. But he can't and he can't really do anything else either.

    I saw a clip on him on ESPN and apparently he is a good painter. It is good that he has other skills because his NFL career is basically over

    When Maybin entered the draft after just 10 college starts as a redshirt sophomore, everybody said he was making a mistake. In retrospect, it was a spectacular decision. He made himself the #11 overall pick in a pre-rookie-scale draft, nabbing $15 million guaranteed -- all on pure "potential," before Penn State could give him more responsibilities and reveal his limitations.

    Sure, great point, but in comparison we've also seen players who lacked sufficient playing time in college and were chosen on "potential" alone come out and do just fine.

    Some off the top of my head are Jason Piere-Paul, Antonio Cromartie, etc.

    As many things in the draft are, it's just the luck of hit or miss.

    In Maybin's case, you hit the nail right on the head.

    I may be a lot more inclined to try and take a last chance flier on a guy like Ray Edwards than I would Aaron Maybin, but there are many other varibles that would come into play that may point to that not being a need, or being poor in cost-efficiency, etc.

    so I guess the days of Rat fan boasting that Maybin will be "BEASTIN!!!! OG OG OG!!!" are over and done....with yet another empty green brag bag filled with dog crap littering the Jersey landscape.

    There's this undersized RB that springs to mind. Wood-something or other.

    Maybin did lead the Jets in QB hits, just sayin'...

    What this thread really points out is the pass rush remains a concern and thus The Pats should have found a way to keep Mark Anderson.

    OK, good point, but this is a guy who was cut by another team first, before the Rats got to demonstrate how Rex can get something out of a player that other teams failed at.
