Chris Young is not a wrapper

In watching Chris Young, I was surprised to see how early and how much of the ball he shows off before he throws it…

… but, a quick talk with Bob Ojeda eased my concern. He said Young is not a ‘wrapper,’ in that, while he does show the ball, he keeps it hidden from the batter the entire time and never wraps his wrist around to expose the pitch, as you can see in the following animated image, which I shot through the back of the net:

By the way, it looks like Chris Young is smiling every time he throws the ball, which is pretty funny. Ted Berg joked, ‘He’s just happy to be here.’

The Jets have been downright terrible at drafting offensive players in the Rex era. So it say they have done well since 2011 isn't totally accurate

@a57se  You might as well get on board with the safety search 57. haha

@a57se   Let me guess, this is the ole "Rex doesnt like ballhawking safeties in his defense argument." Well thats what Reed is/was so why did he pick him up? Your telling me a defensive minded guy like Rex would have no use for Byrd or whitner in his system? Hogwash!!

@harold  Also if they replace Cro it doesnt have to be with the best CB on the market because Milliner was drafted to be the #1 corner so whoever the other guy is will be covering #2 WR's just as Cro was towards the end of the season. So technically it doesnt have to be one or the other, they could sign both safety and CB.

@harold  Reed is a dinosaur, Landry is nothing special, Allen looked good and he should be a good SS we need a ball hawking FS to go along with him and Landry. 

I dont disagree that we could use a CB but the market is loaded this year with safeties so it may be wise to look into getting one.

I don't bringing back a 30 year old who refuses to accept coaching. If Cro would simply play more bump and run it would mask his issues, with transitioning in and out breaks because he is a long strider. Berry has never been great so would not put all my eggs in that basket. Milliner is improving but we certainly need top notch Cb

At safety we already had a threesomes that helped in several victories last season. With a full off-season I feel confidnt that group will be fine.

Cb is a weaker position by far in my eyes. No guarantees two injured players and a second year guy all perform well.

@harold  Cro was playing hurt, get him healthy and re-sign him, Berry was on IR and should be back and Milliner wont be a scared rookie anymore. Problem solved. Now lets get a good safety to generate some turnovers something this team could not seem to do even when they had one of the best CB tandems in the league.

@a57se  Well if Bassett and I agree that should be all you need. However Ive been seeing some others in the media think so too.

I think Safety as a big need is overblown. Rex's system needs quality Cb play and for much of last season it was sorely lacking. Let's get the real problem on the outside fixed first.
