Marc Colombo to sign with Jets
 
according to Adam Schein of Sirius radio

The Jets O-Line is going to be a great unit.

Windy 03-05-2007 08:02 PM

throwback54milkman 03-05-2007 08:04 PM

can a cowboys fan please comment about this guy?

Pit Bull #53 03-05-2007 08:05 PM

Does this mean Leonard Davis is gonna play RT for Dallas?

bearsfan_51 03-05-2007 08:05 PM

He's an ogre.

I bet Cowboys fans are pissed since they spent their time locking up Brad Johnson instead.

When healthy he's pretty good. Bears cut him cause he could never stay healthy and they didn't think much of him as a starter. I think he's still a bit of tweener in terms of his ability to start, but in a league with poor offensive line play a massive guy like him will never be short of work if he can stay healthy.

Well that sucks.

Looks like we're building a Super-Unit OL.

Blalock or Grubbs at #25 would be great.

I hope this report is true. :)

TNewFan41 03-05-2007 08:36 PM

The jets o-line is gonna own. Too bad we didn't sign him.

21ST 03-05-2007 08:37 PM

Honestly, i dont think he is any good but cowboys fans swear up and down he shoulda be a pro bowler so i dont know

TNewFan41 03-05-2007 08:38 PM

Then you don't know what you are talking about, he played great last season.

'cuse-213 03-05-2007 08:40 PM

Are you kidding me? Who wouldn't want brad with his 1982 football pads and goofy facemask?

There are 2 things an OL has to be succesful at.

He did only one of them, that doesnt make him great.

Good signing for the Jets. Plays pretty well on the right side but I wouldn't exactly call him dominating.

Davis at RT for the Cowboys?

Cowboys | Team confident in re-signing Colombo
Mon, 5 Mar 2007 13:18:16 -0800

Tim MacMahon, of the Dallas Morning News, reports the Dallas Cowboys are confident they will be able to re-sign free agent OL Marc Colombo (Cowboys).






Ouch, looks like they will probably be shocked aswell.

D-Unit 03-05-2007 08:50 PM

Wait a second... Where are all the guys who were saying Columbo sucks to us Cowboys fans? Where are all the guys giving us a Tackle in their mock drafts? Where are all the guys who kept saying Cowboys fans are delusional for thinking that Columbo is more than just an average guy?

It's not a huge loss as some Cowboys fans may lead you to believe. Yes, he played better than we expected last year. However, he is far from proven. He had one solid year in a contract year btw and is nothing more than a one year wonder with injury concerns. Bears fans can at least atone for that. His play is also hard to guage by the numbers because we ran the 2 TE set as our base offense and more frequently than not, Columbo had the help of our TEs in pass protection. ...and nobody should get fooled that he's a mauler in the run game.... Please see a doctor if that's the case.

There are still other options unlike Guard out there that the Cowboys or any other team looking for a Tackle can find. Columbo is just another guy. Jordan Black, Petigout, Pork Chop Womack, Max Starks, Mike Gandy, Damion McIntosh, Anthony Clement and more... even old guys that could be carry overs like Todd Steussie and Ephraim Salaam are still available.

Very good signing by the Jets. So far NYJ has had a very productive off-season and have filled many holes with very solid players.

He was not the best offensive lineman on the cowboys roster last year. Andre Gurode was great. Columbo is pretty good not great, and that was his first full year after his injury.
