Gholston A Go

The New York Jets are all ready to go. The draft picks are signed and this is the squad we’re going to whittle down into the surprise team of 2008. Unless the Jets bring in Brett Favre! Hey I want the guy here but apparently Paul Needell doesn’t and he doesn’t offer a compelling arguement against Favre, just more of the same “media circus” mumbo jumbo.

The real story in Jetville is Vernon Gholston signing his deal and getting on the practive field today. No holdout! (I’m not counting the first day of camp as holding out). The deal sounds like it will be 5 years with a maximum value of $50 million if Burnin’ Vernon meets all his incentives. Yes the Jets wanted it to be 6 years just like they wanted Revis to sign for but they smartly cut to the chase and got him in camp and signed at 5 years rather than suffer another long, drawn out battle like they faced with Revis last year.

It appears that Eric Smith will head into camp as a starting safety over Abram Elam while Chris Baker may be waffling on his ridiculous whining against the team for a new and undeserved contract. The fans at Hofstra sound like they want Brett Favre with each practice interception thrown by Clemens or Pennington. Until the situation is resolved I’m changing his name to Gett Favre.

    Excellent… NO HOLDOUT for the big guy… he was already a little behind the ball, but luckily his job is easy… get the QB.
    And as clever as Gett Farve is, do we really want another interception machine here to mold our younger guys? Plus Clemens threw 1 pick on day one and Pennington threw zero, who are all these people calling for Farve… This is a run first team!!! Lets stick with the plan!!!

    On the bright side, day 2 of camp and like you said all our guys are signed. Jets are only 3 point favorites Week 1 @ Miami… If I bet on the Jets, which I never do, Week 1 is the week to do it!!! Thomas Jones will run all over Miami and we can ride a high into week 2 with those cheating bastards from Foxboro!
