azjetfan Icon : (23 December 2014 - 11:58 PM) I think the D Ryan plays makes it hard for some to get in.
azjetfan Icon : (23 December 2014 - 11:58 PM) Guys like Wilks and Rich move around alot
santana Icon : (23 December 2014 - 11:59 PM) media wasnt exactly praising the jets at any point either
santana Icon : (23 December 2014 - 11:59 PM) it was fairly negative throughout the year
azjetfan Icon : (24 December 2014 - 12:00 AM) Yea. The PB is a popularity contest.
azjetfan Icon : (24 December 2014 - 12:00 AM) Consideri g what the D had to do to protect that secondary it's impressive they did as well as they did.

ROBJETS Icon : (24 December 2014 - 12:01 AM) All of his sucess was before the slalry cap
ROBJETS Icon : (24 December 2014 - 12:01 AM) salary

santana Icon : (24 December 2014 - 12:03 AM) I don't want to see mangold or anyone really get injured
santana Icon : (24 December 2014 - 12:03 AM) injury list is getting long
ROBJETS Icon : (24 December 2014 - 12:04 AM) From 1965- 1985 the Cowboys never had a losing season. Thats the kind of impact no salary cap had for the rich teams
santana Icon : (24 December 2014 - 12:06 AM) for more research see ny yankees
ROBJETS Icon : (24 December 2014 - 12:15 AM) I hear you and MLB still doesnt have a salary cap. Just luxry tax
ROBJETS Icon : (24 December 2014 - 12:16 AM) luxury
ROBJETS Icon : (24 December 2014 - 12:41 AM) And speaking of no salary cap that`s why the Yankees are the 4th richest team in all of pro sports in the world so they can buy any player they want with no salary cap in place. The other top three richest teams are European soccer teams
santana Icon : (24 December 2014 - 12:56 AM) hala madrid
Mr_Jet Icon : (24 December 2014 - 12:58 AM) How many times have the Yankees won the World Series in the last 10 years? Once?

i think we should draft him if we can, think about it, we've all been saying we need a NT, i would had said this earlier but wasnt sure if he was gonna be in the draft or not, i mean i like him cause hes from michigan but hes also nice as hell, and hes BIG, what do u guys think, u think we'll have a shot at drafting him

probably a top 5 pick....but we would have to unload some picks and trade for the position to get him which im not in favor of. we have a 1st and a really high 2nd and another decent 2nd pick. Id rather have 3 players....

Thing is...he isn't really a NT. Plenty of teams will take him to be a dominant DT in any system. I know he has plenty of size to be a NT. But he isn't really a space eaterand would best utilized as a DE in the 3-4. It's scary to think how good Alan Branch could be as a DE in the 3-4. And while I'm sure he could play NT...it wouldn't be worth trading up that far to put him in an unnatural position...

Actually...I've heard some rumblings that Branch might start dropping because he isn't really a run stopper...and isn't really a fantastic pass rusher...plus he doesn't even have anything noteworthy in the stat column. I try not to look at stats...but put it all together he may end up a mid first rounder. Problem is...there isn't another DT who could really beat him out for first DT taken...so I suppose he stays Top 10.

If he did fall...for whatever reason...I think he'd be a good pickup...but as a DE. Hell...I might be willing to give up my Marshawn Lynch man crush if Branch fell...haha. But it won't happen...so the man love continues...

i've been asking for this guys since day one but i doubt we'd land him, all the other team that goes ahead of us will most likely look to get him

the more and more i see the patriots on tv or read about them, the more i want a player like seymour on our team. lets hope your right and his stock does drop and we somehow pick him up. he has the potential to be better than seymour.

i hate to burst the bubble but we already have a guy just as good as seymour in 2006

Shaun ellis had just as good if not better numbers than seymour in the same number of games and this is his first year in a 3-4....we can hate on him because he wont be the 10 sack guy he was in herm's scheme but i give him alot of credit because most high paid defensive ends like abraham or strahan would of cried and asked for a trade because their stats would drop but he played his ass off. But hey i would take both guys in a heart beat.

Do me a favor and burn the stat book...

Stats will never show what a defensive linemen does in the 3-4. Shaun Ellis didn't control the line of scrimmage the way Seymour did. Ellis did a good job, no doubt, but he is part of the run defense problem...not the biggest part, obviously, but a part of it.

Thing is one team in the top 15 who doesn't neccessarilly require a NT will take him simply because of his talent. Last year Carolina had DeShaun Foster on their roster but that didn't stop them taking DeAngelo Williams same with the Saints and Bush as they had McAllister although passing on Bush would have been a mistake (isn't that right Texans?).

Exactly. Seymour would have commanded more double teams than Ellis did simply because of his reputation around the league as one of the best DEs in the league.

I could be wrong, but I don't think Woodley would play DE in the 3-4. He's 6-2 and 268 lbs. Compare that to Bryan Thomas who is 6-4 and 266 lbs. Woodley is the perfect size for an OLB in the 3-4, assuming he's fast enough.

You cant fault ellis for a couple of reasons the biggest of which was the lack of a NT....Of all the 3-4's in the league we are the only one that doesnt have a real NT. Teams could collapse 2 or 3 blockers on him because he was the only guy on the line causing any disruption......Robertson had an OK year but his mobility is seriously limited by a degenerative knee condition which alot of pro's think might end his career earlier than expected and Kimo as we all know is awful and shouldnt have been starting on an nfl roster last year. Give him Wilfork and ty warren type players and another year in the 3-4 system and we'll see who the most dominant DE in the 3-4 really is. I'll admit that the numbers dont tell the whole truth but if it wasnt for Ellis getting blocks collapsed on him the way they did the sacks that rhodes and thomas got wouldnt be there.....he basically was the NT because he occupied the space.......another thing is this was his first year in the 3-4 so i think he deserves credit for putting up numbers and not gripes about a change in philosophy which pretty much an high paid DE in the league would have done.........numbers may not tell the whole truth but they dont lie either
