In the Shades Robby interview he really threw shade on the jets and how bad the organization was, how they focused on "everything but winning." And I have another thread listing how the jets sucked in EVERY phase of the game.
I've watched a bunch of QB studies on him and they all say the same thing, he had no time, was hit often when he threw, the receivers weren't getting open, they dropped the ball a lot and quit their routes and they had no run game soooo...he had to try to force things.
The reviewers said things like "If he didn't make that throw, when was he supposed to throw because that is as good as it got".
Everyone played man on the jets because the receivers were so slow and sucked. Which allowed them to send pressure, which they did.
It actually amazing that he didn't have more ints.
Shaq was a first round draft pick, 25th over all pick. Maybe we've been spoiled by our linebacker play over the years, but we expected Shaq to dominate. He consistently has played in the shadow of Luke and TD, not breaking out unto his own as a starter.
Last year I didn't see him playing better than when Luke and TD were here.
Lets hope we see a newer more dominate player in Shaq and all the linebackers this coming season.
Shaq hasn't made it as a pro bowl player. Yeah, ya kinda expect somewhere along the line , your first round draft pick to be one of the best. Oh, we've had first round bust. And Shaq is NOT a first round bust by any means.
Right or wrong , some have expected more from him.
