Jeff Otah traded to the Jets

330 posts in this topic

Wait, are people really going to blame Hurney because Otah couldn't stay healthy? REALLY?

He was an excellent offensive lineman in '08 and '09. Shame he couldn't stay healthy. But it isn't like Hurney picked a scrub. Stuff happens. Otah got hurt. What is Hurney going to do about that?

better be a nice pick in return

Not expecting too much considering how much he's played the last 4 seasons and his health

lol at the thought of us getting a 2nd rounder for him

You guys are just too much sometimes.

I said 4th rounder that could turn into a 2nd based on performance

For peaks sake

Important question, did Jeff attend rookie mini camp today? Was he supposed to? Maybe today was his last chance and he blew it.

Great... Just great.... 1st rounder for undisclosed picks... NOT GOOD no matter how u look at it.

What do you want? Hurney couldn't forsee chronic injury issues when he draft Otah and he was great when healthy. Do you think he was gonna beat out Bell this year, even if he did what if he got hurt again, he is worth nothing at that point. Sometimes you have to cut your losses, would rather get something than nothing for him.

Otah had questions about his work-ethic pre-draft, and we gave up a fuging 1st for him.

I've been saying for awhile that at this point I'd honestly be surprised if he even made the roster. He was in the doghouse hard and didn't seem to be doing anything to try to get out of it.

I'd rather trade him for a conditional pick than have to cut his fat ass and get nothing.

Also, his trade will depend on passing a physical, don't get your hopes up.

QFT

I didn't even think about that. He's certainly no lock to pass their physical. Good call.

    • I've worked as an IT contractor for the state of Texas for the past 6 years. I do basic IT hardware support mainly supporting equipment that is a decade old and obsolete. I do stuff like requisition a new hard drive for a server and replace it. Or troubleshoot network problems. If I can't solve a problem I move the ticket up the chain. Pretty basic stuff. I'm currently studying for a CompTIA A+ certification and an MTA cert just to make my resume look better. I was given word that our contract with the state is not being renewed. It expires August 31, so I'm going to be laid off unless my company can find somewhere else for me to work. We've already laid off 10 people since this time last year and my team only has 3 people left on it. The work is drying up as the state moves more and more to virtual server technology so I'm like 99% sure I'm being let go. I'll probably get 4-5 weeks of severance and I can apply for unemployment. Austin has an insurance program for musicians I can apply for since part of my income comes from playing music. I've been trying to get a new job doing basic tech support or even call center type stuff but the jobs are either terrible, like want someone with the kind of experience I have but pay $12/ho and I won't be able to afford my rent, or they require stuff that is way over my head. I went to school for audio engineering at UNCA,. I didn't really intend on pursuing IT as a career, but music doesn't pay poo and I kind of have to go in this direction. I'm pretty depressed because I've been searching for a new job for years, and I've had interviews and whatnot, but the jobs either don't pay enough for me to leave my current position or they require stuff I don't have and/or want to pursue. I feel like I'm stuck in neutral. I'm almost 30 and I feel like my career hasn't gone anywhere and I'm going to be making just a little above entry level pay my whole life.  Anyone ever been in this situation before? How did you make your career take off, or find something you were passionate about and run with it?
