    Vern Gholston is Merriman v.2, and its a GREAT thing the Pats didn't get him, instead they will have to come with schemes to keep him away from Brady for the next 5 years!!!!

    Bolts in Tampa babeeeeeeeee

    This shows the difference between not only them as players but in the defenses. The Jets 34 asks the players to read and react a lot. It is hard for some players to pick up. You have the instincts or not. Some can develop them over time, but not everyone can. Robertson and Vilma both had a hard time to adapt to the double reads and 2 gaping they where forced to do.

    If the Jets want Ghoulson's to be super productive, they probably need to ask him to just be a pass rusher. That is why they drafted him and that is what he does best. They spent a lot of money on Pace, so they may want Ghoulson to learn the reads and react.

    As far as being productive, Merriman is in a much better situation. First, there is so much talent on our D. We can afford to use him any way we want and have the depth to do it. Our 1 gap D is much more conducive to letting our LB make plays, even though it puts our LB in more pressure.

    Ironically, I think Merriman is a much more instinctive LB then most NFL OLB, especially the pass rushing OLB types. I am glad we used him mostly as a pass rusher, but he is a complete LB now. He will always be more of an impact player as a pass rusher, but he and Phillips are nice compliments to one another.
