He graded out at a 39.5 PFF score last night and has a 37.5 PFF Preseason grade...despite the tackle numbers, he hasn't played a good game. He has been exposed in pass coverage consistently and missed more than a few tackles as well.

Gardner named starting CB for Jets

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. —
Former University of Cincinnati standout Ahmad "Sauce" Gardner is officially part of the New York Jets' immediate plans.

"He's going to be our Week 1 starter," Jets head coach Robert Saleh said via the team's website Sunday night. "He's been fantastic."

Yea high tackle numbers in the NFl aren't necessarily a good thing. It means your guy was open enough that they called his number and he made a completion. I think Joel is too slow to make it in the league. 25 years ago he'd be an all pro.

It was a nickname he got playing running back in pee-wee football. Once of his coaches called him A1 Sauce Sweet Feet because of his footwork and it morphed into just Sauce.

Haven't seen the Eric Wilson news, that would be pretty surprising to me. MY and Devin Gray were cut earlier in camp.

I'd heard Sauce speak of how the Sauce nickname came from his peewee coach, but I still also assumed it was based mostly on the concept of "covering everything". I'm not sure how the concepts of "sweet feet" and "A1 Sauce" relate if the latter is not in the context of his coverage ability. Perhaps only his coach knows all the details of this superhero origin story...

I also think there's some confusion on the Eric Wilson situation. Your article does link to an Eric Wilson being cut, but by the Seahawks and with his position being OG rather than LB like UC's Eric Wilson who was with the Saints last I heard. The link in the article does lead to the Saints LB Eric Wilson bio page, but I think that's just a mistake on their part.

The Cincinnati Alum Eric Wilson is a linebacker for the Saints who is basically a rotational starter, not sure who that is.

He’s a guard from Penn State. For some reason, when you click on his name on cbssports.com, it goes to the LB Eric Wilson profile.

Only big surprise among that bunch is James Wiggins. Feel bad for Curtis Brooks. He was a monster for UC last year and a huge reason we had a historic, never-to-forgotten season.

Eric Wilson was running with the 2s all camp and was a starter for the Vikings last season...thats a surprise IMO.

They were cut in the first round a couple of weeks ago, didn't think to add them.

RE: Bearcats in the NFL-2022
On a positive note, and no surprise, starting NFL cornerback Gardner grades out well for first round picks in the preseason...

Quote:4. Sauce Gardner, CB, Jets
Grade: A-
Gardner was not targeted all preseason. In other words, Sauce smothered his assignments all summer. But we did only see him on 23 coverage snaps. Altogether, head coach Robert Saleh and the entire Jets organization have to be more than just pleased with their first of three Round 1 selections

I am Ahmad No More

And from this ESPN article yesterday...

Quote:FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- New York Jets rookie Ahmad "Sauce" Gardner was named a Week 1 starter Sunday by coach Robert Saleh. Even before the announcement -- a mere formality -- Gardner already was thinking big things.

Looking ahead to the regular season, Gardner -- drafted fourth overall -- said he expects to "dominate" opponents. He believes he's wired differently than other rookies, which, in his view, should minimize the typical growing pains.

"I think it's going to be different than how most rookie seasons are," Gardner said in an interview with ESPN. "People always talk about this rookie wall, things like that. I take football real serious, but at the same time, I have fun with it. I feel like that's why I'm able to have so much success. When I'm on the field, I'm smiling and have a lot of fun with it.

"Everything comes natural," he continued. "I don't think I'm going to run into the quote-unquote rookie wall. I think I'll just be able to go out there and dominate whoever lines up in front of [me]."

Confident, huh?

"Most definitely," he said.

Every rookie corner has a target on his back; that's how the NFL works. Gardner comes to the league with a sterling reputation -- he didn't allow a touchdown pass in college -- but even the top prospects get tested, especially those who like to talk.

Gardner's reaction? Bring it on.

"I'm just looking forward to it," he said. "That's all I have to say about that. I've heard that since I got in college my freshman year: 'You know, they're going to come after you.' All right, I'll be waiting."

Gardner had a relatively quiet training camp, but quiet is good in his line of work. He didn't make any highlight-film plays, but he also didn't get torched by any of the Jets' veteran receivers. He didn't miss a single practice and, from all indications, worked hard at his craft.

And he did a lot of trash-talking. Like, nonstop.

"Sauce is always talking, whether it's trash or not," rookie wide receiver Garrett Wilson said. "I'd say he's got the upper hand on trash-talking, for sure."

Saleh said he hasn't been around a rookie who talked this much since cornerback Jalen Ramsey, when Saleh was linebackers coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2016. Ramsey finished second in the AP Defensive Rookie of the Year voting and was a first-team All-Pro in his second season. "The best in football," Saleh said.

Gardner has a ways to go before he reaches that level, but he's got the vocal part down pat.

"The guy doesn’t stop talking when he’s on the football field -- and he backs it up," Saleh said.

Gardner doesn't mind the Ramsey comparison.

"I feel like it's true," he said. "[Saleh] is just being honest. Jalen is a great player, he's a great guy. That's my guy. We chop it up every now and then. I see myself in him a little bit. We have a lot of the same tendencies, on and off the field, the way we carry ourselves, the way we talk a little bit of trash on the field."

It's unusual for a rookie to be that brash, but Gardner isn't like most rookies. He already has an endorsement deal with Buffalo Wild Wings and his own signature sauce. It's called "Sauce Sauce," described as a combination of smoky sweet and spicy BBQ. He's come a long way from the Detroit kid who was nicknamed "A1 Sauce Sweet Feet" Gardner by one of his youth football coaches. Eventually, it was shortened to ... well, you know.

He actually played wide receiver until his sophomore year in high school, an experience that helps him now. His familiarity with the route tree and wide receiver splits helps him anticipate specific routes. A smart corner can eliminate certain routes based on where the receiver is lined up.

"A lot of things I just know when they're coming," Gardner said.

"He’s that guy that’s constantly collecting information and then sprinting back to the locker room and writing it down," defensive coordinator Jeff Ulbrich said. "He’s just building this database right now."

Gardner alternated with incumbent Bryce Hall throughout training camp, in large part because the coaching staff didn't want to hand him a starting job because of his rookie status. They wanted him to earn it. Saleh made it official after Sunday’s preseason finale against the New York Giants, naming Gardner a starter after a “fantastic” summer.

"Sky's the limit. I don't think I have a ceiling," Gardner said. "Ain't no such thing as a ceiling. I pray to God, sky's the limit."

There is no ceiling for Sauce
