For those of you who missed it, Kerry Rhodes was on MTV Cribs last Saturday. MTV was kind enough to provide Rhodes' segment on their website for those of us who are uninterested in Young Joc and one of the Fall Out Boys.

The New York Jet takes you through the "chocolate room" and trophy cases in his Jersey abode.Glad to see he's living nicely. It's definitely modest by MTV Cribs'? usual standards. We should email MTV and see if they can get us a tour of the facilities at Florham Park.

Jim Leonhard had only good things to say about Kerry Rhodes in his first conference call. The respect for the things Rhodes can do is definitely there, but there is a subtle acknowledgment of the strides he can still make towards improving.

Ed Reed, from play to play he picked and chose what he felt he needed to do in this defense to allow us to be the most successful. Being the other safety, you have to be very flexible to allow him that freedom, that creativity that makes him one of the best ever...Kerry Rhodes, he is a great safety, a great talent. In this defense, hopefully with me here, it will allow him to pick and choose those situations and allow him to have that type of success as well.
The one thing I take away from Leonhard's comments is that Rhodes is in control of his own destiny. It's going to be up to Rhodes to make his own adjustments, recognize what's best, and diagnose plays based on his own knowledge. Can Rhodes look at the field and see the same things Ed Reed would see? Ryan's system or not, it's all up to Kerry now.

Maybe that's for the best. Rhodes' role was completely changed in 2008 when Mangini had him playing deep. Rhodes was constantly out of position to make plays, and always looked a second late when he was going for interceptions.
