Jonas Jennings @ RT in 09'???

I still think we should grab a tackle in the draft to groom for the future, but with JJ's history of getting hurt early in the year he will be playing early in the season ...

but I gotta admit, if Jennings could stay healthy the right side could be a strength in the run game with Jennings and Rachal, but first JJ has to stay healthy, if he is kept hopefully they will restructure his contact in the event he pulls a michael Spinks and goes down early ...
I guess the question is who's out there instead of Jennings?
Perhaps this is all talk to convince Al Davis to trade for him? Hmmm...how about JJ for Lelie?
I have posted nearly this exact same post for the third year in a row now, and so here it goes.

Jennings is a total and complete liability to our Oline. He holds NO VALUE whats so ever. Sure he plays well when healthy, however the disruption to the continuity of our line when he does go down, and he will, by far outweighs any benefit provided when playing while healthy. Also, he is seen as one of the team leaders in the locker room. Do we really want our linemen following Glass Jennings lead?

The oline more then any other unit feeds off of familiarity, consistency and cohesiveness. When there is constant turmoil in your lineup, consistency, continuity, and cohesivness are thrown out the window. When we have Snyder playing 3 positions in 5 weeks because of the disruption JJ going down causes, any positives from the 3 games he actually played are null.

Having to account for JJ going on IR at some time during the season affects the entire offseason for the entire line. We either practice and strategize for his eventual replacement, which doesn't allow his eventual backup to simply play in his stead at the position, or we don't and as a result suffer for having not when he does eventually hit the IR negating any consistency or cohesion.

JJ is a waste of time, resources, money, and a roster spot. Him remaining with the team is further prrof of Scotties inability to perform his duties properly. Further proof he needs to go.

I don’t see what people are all that worried about. If his contract is incentive laden and he is getting paid by the game, do you really think that a lot of these minor injuries will keep him from playing? I think that this makes a lot of sense and kudos to McCloughan if he is able to pull this one off.
The way that I see it, if JJ is cut, there are cap ramifications. If his contract is restructured, these ramifications are less. If he is getting paid by performance (games actually played), JJ will have something more then self respect to play for and when he plays he is one of the best in the game.
I agree that we should draft an OT on the first day (2-3 round can land you a good RT and will not cost as much at #10pick (#10 is awful high for a RT IMO) and groom him to eventually take over for JJ. I think it is a good idea if he can pull it off and get JJ to agree. If JJ does not agree, cut him.

Jonas Jennings is one of the best tackles in the NFL. Finally, his chronic shoulder has been fixed. Some people are just snake-bit and let's hope his run of bad luck is over. For those who don't remember, when he and Larry Allen were playing side by side, they were dominating. A healthy Jennings playing alongside Rachal is a nice prospect to face.

Mary Tyler Moore could play tackle next to Larry Allen and we would have a strong running game. LARRY ALLEN, not JJ, was the key to that success!
why did mcclueless waste a 4th rounder on wallace

Yup!

Thats the thing about Jonas, he is pretty damn good.... when he is healthy!

The problem is that he always goes on IR with a bruised vagina.

i agree 100% great OT with alot of sand in his minge

The only thing this tells me is we won't be grabbing a quality free agent tackle this season.
