    Took him a while to get going at Ohio St. too. The light will eventually come on for him.

    If you're a Jets fan, you're used to disappointment at this point.

    True that.

    But the winning has definitely helped Jets fans be more patient with Gholston.

    He manhandled blockers? Maybe they should put him on the line where he does best.

    Jets D will eventually use him as a stand-up D-end.

    To tell you the truth, even if he was playing his ass off right now, I'm not sure how much play he'd be getting with how awesome the Jets D has been.

    I agree. I think it's best for him. He doesn't have to contribute immediately, and he'll have time to adjust. I just remember him being a beast on the d-line and I'm disappointed that he's not going to be a down lineman as much.

    But, my football knowledge is pretty limited.. I think..

    While I was watching the Jets game this weekend, I spent time specifically looking for Gholston. His play was completely not noteworthy, except on a couple of plays he got burned badly on passes out into the flat that he misread.

    Maybe OLB in a 3-4 isn't for him.

    If you read the comments, everyone seems to agree with him.

    And I don't know where you get off saying that. I think Jets fans are the most rational of all NY sports fans.

    Yes, but is that really saying much? :biggrin:

    Not as much as you closing in on 2,000 posts and not having a second gold buckeye leaf to show for it.
