John Jerry Sucks!!!

wonderback : 9/11/2017 12:18 pm
It can't be said enough. I know it's been brought up on other threads. Maybe I needed to do this as some sort of therapy. He can't run block. He can't pass block. He missed a stunt again yesterday (so much for continuity) and almost got Eli killed again. I've seen Bret Jones play and even though he's not a world beater, the line plays demonstrably better when he's in the game. I was shocked after the Jet game that Jerry continued to take all the first string reps at RG.

I don't even think he's a good backup. It's amazing to me that someone that large constantly gets pushed back into the pocket. He can't move anybody on a run play.

Here's my question: What am I missing? Why does Mac continue to play only Jerry? Why doesn't anybody else get a real shot at the RG slot? Is he going to start at RG next game as well?

Is Mac out of his mind or is it me?

I know there are other problems with this offense, but I only want to discuss John Jerry here.
Reese gave him a 3 year contract this offseason.

That contributes to him playing, too, at least alittle bit.
I texted my friend who's a dolphins fan

I told him as much - he's surprised he is still in the league. they are glad to be rid of him

and didn't even get a shirt yesterday.
If I were Mac I'd cut Jerry  
GeorgeAdams33 : 9/11/2017 12:28 pm : link
I'd bench Bobby "the best RT in the league" Hart and insert Jones at RG and Fluker at RT

I'd activate Halapio and if Weston Ragdoll doesn't start to hold his ground I'd try Jones at Center with Halapio at RG

If they still insist on giving Hart some time then I'd at least put Fluker or Jones in at RG. Jerry serves no purpose as a backup. Fluker might be our best option as Jones is very limited athletically. DJF might not be the pass protector that Jerry is yet, but he has the tools and he could improve whereas Jerry is just spent and he's only getting worse.

Amen!
Fluker didn't dress  
GeorgeAdams33 : 9/11/2017 12:29 pm : link
....only because Jones can back up Center and both guards, while Wheeler is the only backup LT
John Jerry got paid

Obviously he isn't going to play at the same level he did last year. He was playing for a contract.

John Jerry

John Jerry is an extremely hard worker and positive influence in the room
Is John Grecco  
bubba0825 : 9/11/2017 12:45 pm : link
Hurt? If not we need to sign him today
So  
Mr. Nickels : 9/11/2017 12:58 pm : link
John Jerry is on track to be a 7 year starter for this team if he plays out his contract LOL

I have a friend who's a Dolphin fan too. I offered to trade Jerry to him and asked for nothing in return. I also offered to throw in a portable generator for Miami. He answer was, send the generator, keep Jerry.
I guess, in conclusion thus far

Nobody knows why Mac plays Jerry. I felt Jones was much more successful than Jerry during preseason. I didn't even think it was close.

It doesn't make any sense to me. If Jerry starts next week or at least doesn't get pulled at the first sign of trouble, I'm bailing on the season, because to me it means that Mac doesn't know how to evaluate his own players.
If it were only physical limitations, but knew his assignments  
SHO'NUFF : 9/11/2017 1:13 pm : link
it would be ok... but he doesn't have it all there either physically or mentally. You have to wonder why he gets significant playing time.
He was cast off from the Phins  
Bluesbreaker : 9/11/2017 7:37 pm : link
He wasn't picked up to become a starter the 3 year contract
is a head scratchier . I mean he did make the effort to better himself I will give him that he would be fine as a backup . He can't run block and not quick enough to pick up the stunts . I don't feel Bobby Hart is starting material either unless he develops in a hurry . I don't think Flowers was all that bad if he doesn't pan out good golly we have an even bigger mess .
John Jerry Sucks!!!

The only way he should be in an NFL stadium is if he buys a ticket.....
