Posted 16 Apr 2014Why overpay when you don't need to? CJ does not have any other suitors. Just because he wants $5M a year and just because the Jets can accord to give him that, does not mean they should. It's a depressed market for RBs so there is no need to overpay for one.
In free agency you invariably have to overpay though.
I quite like the signing - while he may be declining as a rusher, he gives us a dynamic receiving threat of the backfield that we need. Powell did a solid job last year catching the ball (as well as running it), but he doesn't have the potentially game changing burst of speed that Johnson possesses.
Since coming into the league he's never had less than 1,400 yards from scrimmage. I don't expect him to get that as a Jet seeing as his touches will decrease being in a 'RB by committee' with Ivory and Powell. He should fit well into Marty Mornhinweg's offense too - in Philly LeSean McCoy was featured heavily in the passing attack.
Posted 13 Apr 2014Lets hope. I think he'll make the step, he showed promise last season. He will be in the weight room getting stronger this offseason instead of rehabbing a injury. The game seemed to start slowing down for him late in the year, he played well really the entire last month of the season. And getting 10 PD 3 INT in 2 games isn't easy to do. This was a top CB prospect, he has all the tools to be a very good CB.
To perform like Milliner did when it was obvious he was being targeted should give him great confidence. We'll certainly need him to develop as our secondary is pretty weak. That said, I'm not convinced drafting a CB with our first pick will serve us best given the needs we have on offense.
How do the CBs predicted to go in the 2nd and 3rd rounds shape up?
Posted 24 Mar 2014Just another article trying to stir up controversy for the sake of it.
If Cannizaro focused on Sanchez being put into the preseason game against the Giants as an example of bad treatment or how not giving him a young QB friendly coordinator his first three years in the league stunted his development, then fair enough, but they are both water under the bridge now.
But the timing of his release can't really be seen as poor treatment. Sure his options are slightly more limited since players like Ryan Fitzpatrick and Matt Schaub had moved on elsewhere already, while Matt Cassel had signed an extension with the Vikings. But there are plenty of teams who Mark could realistically wind up with still yet to make their move. After all, there's one big event - the draft - that is still to come.
I like Sanchez and wish him all the best, but articles like this aren't fair on the Jets.
Regardless of how many moves at QB other teams have already made, Mark will land on his feet and wind up in a QB competition somewhere - he's too talented not to.
Posted 21 Mar 2014Greg was a game winner - never forget his game winning TD in that 7-6 thriller vs Arizona!
Widely speculated that he'll go into politics or coaching. So McElroy will either be the next Heath Shuler or Jason Garrett...
Posted 17 Mar 2014Haha.
Because then it would be news worthy. He clearly just has to show on the field when the season starts that he wasn't. He's always going to say this. It's not news.
(I like Decker FWIW, just merely stating how stupid it is for him to have to answer this question)
Even better if he had said he was a product of Tim Tebow.
There are a lot of things Manning can do - delivering passes on target, throwing a receiver open. But he's always been helped by having receivers who can run excellent routes, be that Reggie Wayne or Marvin Harrison. Decker definitely isn't in their class, but his route running is one of his biggest strengths. With Holmes gone, a threat on the outside with good speed and who can run precise routes is what we needed.
