Jets hire Maccagnan as GM and Bowles as HC. Who's starting the billboard fundraiser?

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 08:13 PM) SIGN WILL HILL
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 08:14 PM) There are some decent FAs I hope we go after, we have like $48 mil in cap space, plus more once we get rid of Chris Johnson and Calvin Pace.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 08:14 PM) We'll have over $50 mil to spend
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 January 2015 - 08:52 PM) sign everyone!!!!
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 08:54 PM) I'd love to grab Cobb, Julius Thomas, and Mike Iupati
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 08:56 PM) Lol for someone who doesn't like me and doesn't pay attention to what I have to say, GG sure loves talking about me
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 08:56 PM) It's ok though buddy I love you
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 January 2015 - 08:57 PM) We just need a QB to throw to them
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 09:17 PM) Cobb isn't leaving the Packers
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 09:18 PM) I hope we keep Harvin
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 January 2015 - 09:28 PM) I like Harvin but I don't think we should pay him that much
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 January 2015 - 09:29 PM) but if we can get a WR keep him
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 January 2015 - 09:40 PM) idk how cap works sometime
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 January 2015 - 09:41 PM) how can Denver have 31 mil in space?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 January 2015 - 09:43 PM) but I guess since they have to pay both Thomas this year that will go fast
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 January 2015 - 09:45 PM) and have to pay miller next year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:20 PM) Are they not counting PEyton Manning?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:22 PM) A lot of their players increase cap hits after this season
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:22 PM) you can work the numbers
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:25 PM) if we release Harvin, we won't get him back most likely. Hes the most dynamic offensive player we have had in a while.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:26 PM) Plus he has no guaranteed money so we can release him at any time for no cap hits. Maybe they can rework his contract, but I hope we keep him
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:26 PM) I think he will awesome in Chan's offense, maybe worth the $10 mil
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:40 PM) We still have to pay Mo too
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:47 PM) yup. We also happen to be in the big years of Mangolds' and Brick's contracts
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:48 PM) Brick either restructures after this season or is released, noway he stays at $14 mil
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:48 PM) I think he does restructure though, can't imagine Brick wanting to play elsewhere. I see him as a career Jet
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:51 PM) need to re-sign Demario Davis and Damon Harrison as well
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:52 PM) they shouldn't cost much though
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:57 PM) I'd really love to bring in Franklin or Iupati
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:59 PM) Franklin, Iupati, or Boling I would be happy with. We need a good OG.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:59 PM) I think that Oday would be fine as a starter for one spot, he showed promise. Plus it would be a competition between Oday, Winters, and Dozier.
Chadforpresi... Icon : (Yesterday, 12:31 PM) Iupati would be a great signing. If Harvin doesn't restructure I would not be opposed to cutting him
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:47 PM) See this is why you can't be taken seriously harlem
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:47 PM) Orlando Franklin is a FLAG machine
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:48 PM) he'd just be our 2014 version of Colon
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:48 PM) HELL NO TO ORLANDO
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:42 PM) Still paying attention to what I say, huh?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:43 PM) You are the wind beneath my wiiiiiiiings
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:46 PM) 0099 said he'd be happy with Franklin too, but you only bitch about when I said it. Seems legit
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:12 PM) it is legit cause you're wasting bandwith with that bullsh*t
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:43 PM) Wasting bandwidth saying I want a certain player when someone else said they wanted the exact same player?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:43 PM) How much activity was my one sentence really cluttering lol
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:44 PM) Like I said GG I still love you

We have all been brainwashed. The big splash will be a new pool added to Florham Park that Rexy is going to do a cannonball into during the summer!

Bringing back Coles, on the cheap, for depth wouldn't be a bad idea. He isn't going to push B.E. or Cotch, but he could be a slot receiver for a year, or a number 4. I don't think we sign Coles, why bother. We can draft a guy to be our slot receiver, or if we get a little lucky, we draft Dez Bryant, maybe Thomas from GTech, and when we go 3 wide put J-Co in the slot, with B.E. and Rookie out wide. Plus, Coles is one big hit away from being done.

To answer a couple of your points: by this point in his career Coles isn't going to be looking for a payday - he got a decent cheque from the Bengals after all, whilst I think he would be content with having a backup role (the portrayal of him as a whinger is exaggerated IMO given that all I can remember him griping about was the intensity of Mangini's training camps and that never seemed to strain their relationship). In regards to Clowney - he was hardly used probably because he isn't a very good receiver. He's had two years on the roster now and has only ever shown in preseason. On the issue of a playmaker, is that not what Edwards' role is meant to be? Tall, fast and can stretch the field?
Out of a #3 WR you can't expect eye dropping numbers, and Coles still had a decent year in Cincinatti, in which he stayed healthy.
We're disagreeing over what we think needs in terms of receivers - you believe the team needs a playmaker, whilst I see the team requiring depth and someone who can produce at either #3 or #4 on the depth chart.
[/quote]


You cant have too many playmakers and Edwards only catches 1 out of every 5 deep balls. The Jets are reported as looking for another playmaker, not just me. And all we have as a homerun threat right now is leon, and he is comming off a broken leg.

I didnt mean to insinuate coles wanted a large contract, just a larger one then he desrves, and frankly, he isnt worth veteran minimum right now, especially not if hes a 4th receiver.

As for Clowney, im not saying hes great, but the FO seems to think he can become something and he finally scored this year. if they want him to get a bigger role Coles and a rookie would kill that. And right now id take Clowney over Coles, becuase at least Clowney can still burn.

And if you want a slow, aging receiver, who would be looked to as a possesion receiver(when he cant even keep possesion) you have fun with that. Common sense states a young receiver who has playmaking potential is the better option, especially since Braylon is only on a one year deal.

if its not common sense then it should be. Which would you rather go into a horse race with? An old horse who has a history of throwing his jockey off? or a young stud?

I didn't take any sides.

Coles is on his last legs.

We don't know how the rookie will pan out.

All I'm saying is there is two sides to the argument. It's not common sense, its pure opinion. You have yours, smeds has his.

didnt say you were taking sides i simply posed a question to you.

And breaking down common sense in its simplest meaning, the most common opinion in this thread is to NOT take back coles, therefore it is common sense. If it was just me vs. smeds id see you as having a point, but thats not the case.

There is plenty of people who think taking back Coles and having another vet around (regardless of drafting a rookie or not) would be a good thing for this team.

Well all know the people on this board don't give a shit for Coles. It's always been that way.

Believe it or not, there are other Jets fans out there.

yea i know there are other jet fans out there [img]http://nyjetsfan.com/forum2/public/style_emoticons/default/grimace-32.png[/img] kinda obvious, however if you wanna take it that way, we can go into all the football minds and what they think of the deal.

straight up Coles is not what we need and is a waste of space on the roster. I dont know how many different ways to say it. If your sentimental about the guy, put on his jersey and watch old highlights, cus thats as good as its gunna get.

I never said I wanted him. I actually don't want him, but I can definitely see where smeds (and others) come from when they say we could welcome him back.

If we make the "big FA splash" with Taylor, my guy I want at #29 is probably Thomas from GT. But I like some other guys too that I wouldn't mind like Jared Odrick if hes there.

Bwah!??! YOU LIE!!!!


If Gaytay is the big FA splash, then I propose a trade up for Earl Thomas. Oh, thought just crossed my mind. Thoughts on Myron Rolle? The year off from football to become a Rhodes Scholar has apparently dropped his stock. Would anybody object if we were able to draft him? Then, our most pressing needs apparently seem to be fixed short term. Taylor helps the pass rush, Myron Rolle learns behind Pool, we draft either a lineman or a receiver in the first. Wham, Bam, thank you Madden10.

Ain't that the truth:

Holmes, Taylor on the fence.

Will MT move up in the draft to get a stud??

Everyone is going to have to their best to get air time on Hard Knocks.

I don't pretend to know the players in the draft but one thing is for sure Tanny can take any player he wants other than a team that has no choice but to take the #1 player.
Tanny will make it a throw down.
