Removing Stephen Hill From The Starting Lineup Is Smart, But Does Not Make Him a Jets Draft Bust

Alfonzo Dennard, Stephen Hill

According to Brian Costello of the New York Post, Rex Ryan is considering taking wide receiver, Stephen Hill, out of the starting lineup when the Jets go to Baltimore to take on the Ravens, Sunday.

While it would represent a step down for the 2nd-year receiver out of Georgia Tech, it is the right move.  When dealing with the project, it is important to evaluate the best use and strategy with them.  Hill, who many projected would take a long time to adjust to NFL norms, is indeed struggling, but taking him out of the lineup can be a good thing for someone who still has a lot of time before being called a “bust”.

It is a marked improvement over Geno Smith’s three interception 4th quarter against the Patriots the previous week, but we will have to see more to know if that is improvement, or the difference between playing home or away.

The Wartime General: Rex Ryan, Purpose, and Survival

rexchurchill

Winston Churchill is perhaps the most popular leader in British history.  He helped lead them to a victory in World War II.  At home, he helped set up a government coalition to unite and move to achieve great mobilization during the war period.  Churchill was a brilliant war strategist who knew not only how to motivate, but how to go about winning battles he was in, especially when he had the sudden backing and weapon of the United States following the Japanese Pearl Harbor attacks.

So why did this strong and popular leader suddenly lose an election in 1945, just months after one of the biggest victories in the history of mankind – the ending of the Second World War’s phase in Europe?

Buttface or Mild Hope: The Jets and Their Sanchez vs. McElroy Decision

sancheztebowmcelroyWe are essentially a week from marking a new era in Jets history.  Whether or not Greg McElroy gets the ball for Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, we have probably seen the end of Mark Sanchez as “The Sanchize”.  Mark Sanchez’s ineffectiveness for most of the 2012 season has sealed his fate as it exists.
