Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:45 PM) Most mocks had Lee at 17 to the Falcons
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:45 PM) He's a day 1 starter for us. We've needed OLB forever
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:46 PM) Plus we generate a great rush from wilk rich and Williams

Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:52 PM) I would have liked tunsil to slide to us though. After east picking great
MikeGangGree... Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:52 PM) Would you take Lee over Lawson?
azjetfan Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:55 PM) I'm not inspire by that pick. Not even a little
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 10:01 PM) Wasn't an option. Lawson was gone
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 10:02 PM) Lawson is more of a de. We already have too many of those. We only have 1 proven LBer and he's 32 and we run a 3-4. Lee is a day 1 starter
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 10:03 PM) Broncos traded up for lynch

Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 11:19 AM) jets tried to trade up for tunsil but the price was too high
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 05:10 PM) Tunsil will end up out of the league
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 05:12 PM) Lee isn't a pass rusher, hes a fast athletic LB. Hes probably their future at ILB, someone who can cover in the middle
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 06:16 PM) jets said he's an ILB for us
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 06:17 PM) If we could grab jack he would be an OLB

ganggreen2003 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:46 PM) JETS drafted QB Hackenberg PSU
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:47 PM) Should have picked Connor Cook.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:56 PM) I guess we are giving up on petty
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 09:02 PM) Or giving up on geno
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 09:02 PM) I said the rumor was they liked him more then cook
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 April 2016 - 11:35 PM) I know I'm biased, but I've seen them both play. Cook is just better. Hackenberg had one good year. Cook has won more games, played in big games and won them....whatever, its done now so no sense on dwelling on it I guess. I just don't see the appeal in Hackenberg, nice kid, but I always thought he was really overrated. Oh well. I would have taken Kevin Hogan over Hackenberg.
azjetfan Icon : (30 April 2016 - 03:47 PM) From what I have read so far he had a great freshman year under Obrien in a pro style offense. At that point some considered him the next Andrew luck. Then Obrien left and they shifted to a spread under new HC who did poor job bringing in talent. He was also sacked and hit a million times. Might be shell shocked.
Smedsthejet Icon : (01 May 2016 - 06:17 AM) But Chan Gailey runs a spread system - still, I'm comfortable with the Hackenberg pick seeing as Gailey will develop the system to suit his strength... I'm just glad that we passed on Paxton Lynch in the first...we still desperately need Fitz to re-sign though
azjetfan Icon : (01 May 2016 - 07:14 PM) From my understanding the spread in college and the spread in NFL are not the same principals. I really think it was more of a talent issue and getting sacked 80 times in 2 years that did him in. I have no idea if he will make it. I don't follow college ball enough to to know. Theses are just things I read in articles.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 May 2016 - 10:24 AM) I'm stoked about getting peake in the 7th round. that was a steal. he was a projected 3rd rounder. wonder what scared teams away
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 May 2016 - 06:05 PM) Jets Invite Terron Beckham(Odell's Cousin) to Minicamp
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 May 2016 - 06:06 PM) Listed as a RB had more bench presses and highest vertical of anyone this year. Hasn't played football since high school and apparently not very smart
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2016 - 05:16 PM) The Jets had Hackenberg as their #2 rated QB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2016 - 05:16 PM) Apparently, they loved Golf and tried to trade up. When that failed, their #2 QB was Hackenberg, they fell in love with his football IQ
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2016 - 05:17 PM) It would be a mistake to start him right away, hes a guy who needs development. He has the talent, and apparently he has good leadership skills and football IQ. His mechanics are off though

Jets Explore Potential Gms, Look To Keep Tannenbaum In Cap Role

The Jets are reaching out to potential GM candidates, while exploring ways to keep current GM Mike Tannenbaum in a cap management role, according to league sources.

The Jets are trying to beef up their front office, particularly in personnel, given their failing in the draft and free agency in recent years. But owner Woody Johnson is looking for a way to keep Tannenbaum in a different capacity, primarily as a negotiator/cap guy, sources said. The team has quietly reached out to potential candidates to gauge interest in the bizarre arrangement, including approaching Mike Maccagnan, Houston's director of college scouting.

As expected, candidates have significant issues with the parameters, sources said. Tannenbaum has created many of the Jets issues with bloated contracts given to players like Mark Sanchez and Santonio Holmes, to name two, coupled with cap mismanagement that has left New York in a difficult plight heading into 2013. Furthermore, Tannenbaum has shared a very close relationship with Johnson, which naturally would be a red flag for someone joining the Jets from the outside.

Several potential GM candidates -- men expected to garner interviews for soon-to-be-open general manager jobs -- said they would never consider taking the Jets job under these circumstances and doubted that any strong candidate would.

"That's totally ridiculous," one exec said. "Only the Jets."

In the end, Johnson may have to bite the bullet and part with Tannenbaum in order to land a someone highly qualified for the position.


That would suck if we lose out on a quality GM because Woody Johnson won't get rid of Tannenbaum completely...

if that happens than i'm totally giving up on the team for the 2013 season. Rex is one problem, but to keep f***ing Tannenbaum, nothing will get done, and this team will just get f***ing worse.

i still don't get what MT did so wrong that everyone hates him?
He significantly improved this team. without him landing BE and holmes on the the cheap and cro we would have never made 2 AFC champ games back to back. His draftes have been decent and coples and wilk are looking to be studs which would make his drafts great. He kept most of our good players like harris, mangold, brick, etc
Tha sanchez thing was a no choice move. What else could he really do?

He could have not felt the need to make up for flirting with the best qb of all time...

The fact that they have no young depth at any single position debunks the theory that he has had good drafts. Hitting on first and second rounders does not make a good drafter (and even there he has Gholston, Sanchez, Kyle Wilson, Ducasse, Clemens on his resume). GMs build teams through the later rounds. What has he done to build this team in the later rounds? Kerley? Powell? Slauson? Leon Washington and Brad Smith were good novelty players... Big deal.

He's traded away several picks to move up for players, which directly relates to their lack of depth. He made 4 picks in 2007 and 2010, and 3 in 2009. He made 6 picks in 2008 and only Keller is even on the team still. They have quite possibly the worst collection of offensive talent in the league and you don't understand why everyone wants him out?

And need I remind you that in a year where they need to start rebuilding at countless positions, they pissed away a 4th and 6th rounder for Tebow. Good teams are built through the draft and that is something MT has failed to do. But hey, at least they took a WR who can't catch the ball in the second round last year.

Theres a reason this team got old and bad, fast.

happy? no but very few teams could lose as many players as we did and still win. no keller, no holmes, no revis etc. mark had a thin WR core and lost his best one, and on D we were built around revis. he was the 1 player we couldn't afford to lose and we did.

a make-up? or maybe realizing that w/o manning there were no other options and he couldn't afford to let mark walk. if we didn't extend him and he had a monster season (he was progressing up until this year) and he walked to another team like miami or cleveland etc everyone would have hated MT even more for letting "the only good QB we had since namath" to walk. It was a good bet to take but eveyrthing went wrong this year. Gholson was a rex pick, wilson has been very good as is Q and wilk, ducasse was a bad pick but you can't hit on every one, clemens was before his time i'm pretty sure of. and all thos elate round picks you listed turned out to be great vlaue for their draft posiiton. and he traded up for revis that was a great deal, he traded up for keller and that turned out very good too. he needed a QB so he traded up for mark. we got a huge bargain to move up that far. it was a great trade and a no brainer. mark was what we needed at the time. He also got holmes for a 5th and BE for 2 trash players and 2 later picks. those moves helped us make teh AFc champ game twice in a row. Its funny how eveyrone ignores all the good stuff over a bad move or two. he isn't batting 1000 but hey if he's batting over 500 i can't complain. tebow was a bad move made by pressure form woddy (to sell PSls and jerseys) and Sparano (wildcat ground and pound) you cna't put all taht on MT

Mark wasn't going anywhere. He was under contract after this year... All they did was give him more guaranteed money in 2013 so it would be devastating to cut him if he sucked in 2012. Which is exactly what happened.

Rex wasn't here when they took Gholston. Clemens was absolutely MT. Kyle Wilson has turned out to be garbage for a first rounder... I have no idea how you can claim him to be very good, that's just laughable. Like I said, hitting first round picks should be a given for a good GM and he doesn't deserve to be kept for hitting on over 50% of those. That's ridiculous. For all intents and purposes he failed on Gholston (one of the more epic busts of all time), Sanchez, Wilson and I'd even throw Keller in there. Sure he's a good enough tight end but he cant block and is not the type of impact tight end that warrants a first round pick. And he was another one they traded up for.

You say the late round players I listed provided good value? I say I listed five names... So in 6-7 years of drafting, he found 5 serviceable players in the later rounds? And two aren't even here? That's got to be one of the most abysmal draft records in the league. Maybe it would have been better if he didn't trade away half his picks.

Trading up for Revis was great, but continuing to trade up for players and throw away additional draft picks for veterans has crippled this team. He sold the future to try and win a title and it didn't work and now the team is paying the price. So now he has to pay the price. It's not very complicated.

Look at the Colts. They built an entire new offense with one draft class. I realize Luck is a once in a decade prospect, so ignore him and look at everyone else... They drafted a new starting running back, two starting caliber tight ends, and at least two contributing receivers. Look at the Seahawks. There must have been 5 or 6 rookies who played big roles in their beat down of the Niners on Sunday night.

To be successful in this league, you need a GM who can reload with talent in the draft. The current Jets GM has proven he can't do that.

get rid of all these bums, tanny, bradway, front office scouting dept, etc.a new gm needs his guys.
the only guy that i would think could stay in a lesser role is rex. to keep the defense from major change.
but this isn't reality, because a new gm wants his crew.
furthermore rex would probably be insulted if even asked to remain as d.c.

Who wrote this article? Who were the candidates who said this? There is no doubt Tanny needs help or even demoted , but this article is bush league jornalism at best. Reminds me of the insurance commercial with the girl who said if its on the internet it has to be true because its on the internet.

I have to side with 115 on this one

Tanny hasnt been great
But it seems like every year the blame train just goes after the next name. Last year it was shotty this year its tanny next will be rex Etc.

Bottom line is sanchez has not panned out. The problem could of been with talent or depth or everything happening around the team.
I'm all for gutting the frontoffice and bringing someone with extensive experience.

Tanny hasn't been terrible to the jets but see him replaced by polian or something would deff lighten the mood about the jets.

What planet are you on in which you watched Mark Sanchez last year and could call it progression? He CLEARLY regressed last year. And even furthermore this year. Seriously do you just make shit up as you go along? Kyle Wilson has been a bust and a waste of a pick.

Tannenbuam hasn't done enough through the draft. We aren't getting enough production from younger players and we don't have depth, he filled the WRs position with trash and hasn't ever gotten a real #1 RB. Also he has ignored OLB on defense, our LBs got old fast this season.

Does it bother anyone else that the old GM we "fired" is still the chief of scouting? All the busts we drafted, guess who signed off on them first? Terry Bradway. Ultimately, the elephant in the room is that we root for a team that's basically owned by a Paris Hiltonesque fan who has no experience running a company.

I guess, but he was also responsible for this team drafting Revis. So at least he has that going for himself.

happy? no but very few teams could lose as many players as we did and still win. no keller, no holmes, no revis etc. mark had a thin WR core and lost his best one, and on D we were built around revis. he was the 1 player we couldn't afford to lose and we did.




a make-up? or maybe realizing that w/o manning there were no other options and he couldn't afford to let mark walk. if we didn't extend him and he had a monster season (he was progressing up until this year) and he walked to another team like miami or cleveland etc everyone would have hated MT even more for letting "the only good QB we had since namath" to walk. It was a good bet to take but eveyrthing went wrong this year. Gholson was a rex pick, wilson has been very good as is Q and wilk, ducasse was a bad pick but you can't hit on every one, clemens was before his time i'm pretty sure of. and all thos elate round picks you listed turned out to be great vlaue for their draft posiiton. and he traded up for revis that was a great deal, he traded up for keller and that turned out very good too. he needed a QB so he traded up for mark. we got a huge bargain to move up that far. it was a great trade and a no brainer. mark was what we needed at the time. He also got holmes for a 5th and BE for 2 trash players and 2 later picks. those moves helped us make teh AFc champ game twice in a row. Its funny how eveyrone ignores all the good stuff over a bad move or two. he isn't batting 1000 but hey if he's batting over 500 i can't complain. tebow was a bad move made by pressure form woddy (to sell PSls and jerseys) and Sparano (wildcat ground and pound) you cna't put all taht on MT

No, you can't put it all on Tannenbaum but he obviously got very complacent. Even with losing the amount of players the Jets did, there is NO reason for the team to be paper thin how they are. In all honesty, i would go as far to say the 2012 New York Jets are one of the worst assembled teams in the history of sports
