Jets vs. Saints: Prediction, TOJ TV Episode IV

First a few updates:

1. Don’t expect to see either Lito Sheppard or Donald Strickland on the field this Sunday. Hopefully, like Calvin Pace they will be rejoining the defense next Monday night in Miami.

2. Some interesting quotes about Vernon Gholston by defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, “The plays that he’s gotten, especially when he got in more in the last game, he’s graded out well. Vernon’s not a guy that you’re going to see a lot of flash from, but he’s strong…If you go back and look at some of the quarterback pressures we got, a lot of them happened because Vernon kind of collapsed that side of the defense and had taken up two blockers and the running back and the quarterback. Vernon has really taken it upon himself to get better and he’s really done it out in practice…It showed in the game. He made some really nice plays.” Usually you think of a flashy guy when you spend the #6 overall pick in the draft on him, unless he is an offensive lineman. However, at least Gholston is moving towards being a solid all-around contributor for this defense.

    You played for the Mules? I turned down Ray Whispell’s offer of a half scholarship to play linebacker for the Mules in ’57(the 1st co-ed year); I chose acting instead. Don’t know how he found out about me; I never played a down under the lights when the outcome was still in doubt. However in practice scrimmages, I was a blitzing linebacker playing defensive guard by beating the gaps and I was lights out making more than half the tackles while I was in and half of them were for no gains or losses.

    What did you do?

    Good to hear from a fellow mule football alum…I was a possession receiver. I started my jr and sr year and was alright, finished up with like 50 career catches and 3 touchdowns but our team was back to back conference champs
