All Eyes Are On Vernon Gholston

Is this Vernon Gholston's Last Chance to Prove Himself To The New York Jets?I have to admit that I am getting quite tired of it. Every time I turn around someone is talking about how much Vernon Gholston is NOT doing to win a starting spot for the New York Jets defense.

What is really sad is that most don’t question his skills or ability. No, it’s far, far worse than that. It’s his heart and desire most often questioned by fans and even by team mates. This is truly starting to look sad to me.

Rex Ryan has done plenty already to give Gholston a measure of confidence by naming him the replacement starter for suspended linebacker Calvin Pace. I believe this is more than just a move to show Gholston confidence from his coach, it is most likely also a bit of a trial by fire as well.

I see this move as a message from the coaching staff, “Do well in those first four games and there is a damned good chance you’ll see extended action this season. Do poorly and…well….just have a seat, son.”

Despite a long list of posts to the contrary, I am actually keeping my fingers crossed for the Ohio State product. The potential in this young man for success is staggering, unfortunately the potential for failure is equally staggering and growing.
