Former Jets filling roles

*Posted by Josh Jeffi

The Mangini era, so far, has been so scrutinized you would think this is his fifth season and not his first. From the redecorating of the training facility to the 10 hour rookie bus trip, it seems someone has an unfavorable comment to make. One of the biggest hot buttons this off season is the high number of former Jets that now wear the orange helmet.

Why it is such a big issue I will never know. Sure, the players that were signed are by no means superstars, but they fill the need as role players and add depth to a team that was lacking such. They also serve as on field coaches for those players learning the system. Besides, is there anything wrong with having players on a team that actually enjoy playing for a coach?

This isn't the only time a new coach has brought in former players on his new teams. Rex Ryan has done the same thing this year with the New York Jets by signing multiple former Baltimore Ravens. There is a certain level of comfort between coach and player that hopefully for the Browns, will bring success on the field in terms of wins. After all, wins are ultimately the main goal of any football team and organization.

Again, please refrain from casting judgement on anything this new staff has done until after the season. As fans, we need to be patient. Nobody has any idea on how the season will go and if you think you do, my hats off to you. I sure don't.

  1. Josh,
    I agree, everything seems to be scutinied. I am disappointed that the Browns had to start over somewhat again, but give the guy a chance. He atleast has some control over the team, and wants players on the field who will play hard, and give you everything they have in the tank. When the season is finished, then we can judge how Mangini did. Can't wait for training camp to begin! Go Browns!
