Joe McKnight: “If I Don’t Get it This Year, it will Probably be It for Me”

This point has been brought up many times this offseason, which makes one thing clear. The offense was not held accountbale in 2011. Schottenheimer either was thinking too much, or had his mind on other things. Whatever it was, he wasn’t holding them accountable, and that’s a problem.

In any walk of life, you have to be accountable. If you aren’t, little things that cloud your performance can creep into what you are doing. The longer that lasts, the bigger the clouds become, which in football terms becomes, bad decisions, bad execution, and turnovers. Clearly this had to change.

And Tony Sparano is changing that culture, and doing it quickly. Spend some time around the Jets this offseason, you will see that Sparano is on their cases for everything. Every snap, he is correcting, teaching, praising, ..etc. This is the only way to hold people accountable.

I believe McKnight is correct about what he had to say about himself as well. We all saw on “Hard Knocks” a couple of years ago, that Joe wasn’t working very hard at the beginning. As such, he never saw the field. McKnight has since worked on his attitude, and made steps in the special teams game.

But he hasn’t been looked at as THE guy behind Greene, until now.
