Safety Brodney Pool hasn’t played a regular season game yet for the Jets, but secondary coach Dennis Thurman can’t stop praising him, and taking veiled shots at the man he replaced, Kerry Rhodes.
“We have a saying that if a dog’s going to bite, he’s going to bite as a pup,” Thurman told Manish Mehta. “You’d rather pull a guy off the pile than push a guy on. I can slow you down more than I can speed you up. I can make you less aggressive than make you more aggressive. We’ll have to pull Brodney off as opposed to have to push him on. That’s the difference.”
At what point does Thurman stop trashing Rhodes?
