Good morning....wow! Where the heck is everyone?😂 No way I should be the first one to show up😂🤣. The Michael Carter thing was no surprise to me. He just hasn’t been the guy we saw his rookie season or in his days at UNC. I just didn’t see the same explosion or quickness. He’s never been a good pass blocker and honestly I would be shocked if he did anything for Arizona.

Seems like a slow day at The Jet Way, lol. Its too bad Carter had to go, but that's life in the NFL. Uzomah doesn't deserve the snaps he's been getting and Ruckert does deserve them, it's just that simple. Uzomah has never lived up to his hype after he was signed and has been a mediocre play machine since he's been here.

As far as penalties go, the o-line false starts, as you said, have a lot to do with QB cadences and a total lack of cohesion regarding the entire offensive line, especially due to injury problems. The personal foul issues are the worst. Some are bogus, but it seems there is a lack of simple discipline when being on the field. I know it's tough when you are jacked up and you mind clouds up, but sometimes it's just ridiculous. Maybe a bunch of wind sprints after practice will get their attention. They get paid a lot of money in comparison to the rest of us, so they should have the wherewithal to use some common sense. Is it because Saleh and Ulbrich are lax ? Who knows ? This is a championship quality defense and they are not acting like one. There's some immaturity, it's part of life, but sometimes it goes beyond that. The holding calls and crackback blocks by RB's, TE's and WR's are just killing the Jets and they usually happen during a play that would have gained serious yardage and/or take points off the board unnecessarily. Maybe wind sprints there also. I think that's the dark side of being a "player's coach" where players just get very lassiez-faire about things when they know the coach won 't get tough with them. But it is what it is, and if the coaching staff can't fix, then they need to make coaching changes. And if the players don't like being disciplined, they should just shut up and do their jobs the way they are supposed to.

Chaz Surratt must have officially kidnapped CGVet.
