How Rivera dealt with Jeff Otah...

Was thinking about this a few days ago.

We were all quick to judge Otah for being lazy and not pulling his weight, using injurys as an a excuse. We cheered Rivera on as he called him out in interviews during training camp. Then ultimately shipped him out for peanuts. And when Otah failed his physical- he was sent back and we ended up cutting him. At the time, no one questioned Rivera/Hurney.

Now, in hindsight, did Rivera botch the Otah situation. He was essentially a Probowl RT [b]when healthy [/b]but now is only a wasted 1st round pick.

Not sure. What would you have done with Otah?

Nobody else wants to touch him.

If he "botched" it he would be signed and balling for a team right now. Guess what? He isn't. It's over with and the line would've blowed ass with or without him.

I have a black authentic Otah jersey I'm willing to sell for cheap.

Otah wanted to collect checks "rehabbing"...

Instead of actually working

If he was playing for another team now I'd be more skeptical, but dude couldn't even pass a physical.

Not everything Rivera does is wrong. Even a broken clock is right twice a day. Otah is not even in the NFL right now

He failed the Jet's team physical. I think that's enough in saying what shape he was in.

He would have absorbed sanchez, not allowing him to fumble thus improving the jets slightly.

I want Rivera gone but this was the right, obvious choice.

Otah is not metally strong enough for the NFL. Luckily we got him for cheap through Jerry Hurney magic.
