TAIWAN JONES already on a possible path for a probowl could get somme playing time as a (rb) where he originally was asssingned to when he signed with the oakland RAIDERS.
wouldn't it be nice or cool or surprising if he gained all kinds of yds rushing just to add to his surprising rise of stardom?

This is a good move. I'm loving Jennings but I miss having a speedy RB. he could very well take a (already bad) jets team by surprise.

I hate his ankles. Meaning they are too flimsy, Hes got dancing ankles... one slap he goes down. kinda reminds me of some dudes in the club in the 90s...
Look at some tapes where he comes out of the backfield some guy reaches for his foot then down he goes.... hey
why havent they tried him in the slot or screens? I love his S/T play and im loving seeing his heart develop...keeper

OG what did you think of Pryors body language on the sidline after his series? why the hell did DA put him in anyways? I did not see a leader working to get better with his coaches. It always seems like he does not want to be bothered- hot head?

hey i was joking about the ankles thing! but glad you got a sense of humor (lol). i missed the game to comment on pryor's reaction but he did move the ball down the field for a (fg). gotta give credit where credit is due. if it was up to me i would not have gone with a whole series putting pryor in. if the plan was to throw the jets defense off or if it was to relieve mcgloin from his cold start? it is what it is. i personally would have kept going with mcgloin. he's never shown any signs that he can't handle the job. eventually, he would have warmed up. instead, he got cold but came back nicely in the second half. my advise to dennis allen? don't do that again! unless necessary or emergency or a play or two for a planned play. marcrel reece excelled. he was hungry!
