Posted 27 Dec 2014People can try their little street thug digs, etc all they want, but had we paid Mevis, we wouldn't be able to afford 5-6 players as I pointed out in a different thread, so I completely stand by my assessment that Revis is not the end all be all some people seem to believe he is.
We're going to be able to re-sign Richardson and other skill position players thanks to not giving in to the semi-annual demands of the legend in his own mind. Regardless of how I personally feel about Richardson, he's a player that produces and won't demand more than a 10th of the cap by himself. If Idzik had known what he was doing, he would've exercised the option on his contract and got him locked up for another couple years at around 10 per but now we'll end up paying closer to 13 per.
So......since the "street thug" comments want to be brought up, would you guys still prefer to have Revis by himself or Richardson, Decker, Johnson, Ivory & Harvin? Just ask yourselves that because ALL of their contracts combined equal less than 2 million more than Revis' alone.
Posted 27 Dec 2014Apparently this guy thinks thta it's up to the coaching staff to be devoted to him rather than the full roster and that he expects them to be mind readers as well. I guess he never heard of going to the coaches himself and saying he needs help in any area.
Posted 27 Dec 2014He did say that at his HOF speech but then he went and became part of a group that was seeking to be minority owners in an NFL franchise. So, it's either he wanted a smart business investment or he wanted to still be a part of the NFL in some way again.
As outlandish as this may sound, I'd still like the see Chad Pennington contacted to be a QB coach. Before his injuries, he was one of the smartest on the field.
Posted 27 Dec 2014While many of us would love to see Rex retained, it's a longshot. While not reported, the firm I work for handles a LOT of the Jets contracts and one of the attorneys recently was at Woody's place and talking shop. Woody has said that if his "initial option" is no longer on the table, Rex has an outside shot of being retained. I personally doubt Rex will stay, but I take this as Woody wanting Harbaugh. But, with Casserly being hired and reportedly already making inquiries, Rex will very likely not be on the plane back to NJ after Sunday's game.
To me, Harbaugh is the only real equal or upgrade to Rex.
Posted 27 Dec 2014Idzik has had 19 draft picks and has produced 1 real player. Idzik has royally dropped the ball in FA. The man has done nothing right to this point other than getting the cap in check. Although he has done that to the detriment of the quality of the team.
The ONLY thing I disagree with is having the cap in check. While we're not in danger of not being able to afford players this upcoming offseason, we're close to screwed because we now have to OVERpay a bunch of players in order to get in compliance with the percentage of the cap that needs to be spent by 2016. I forget the exact figures but we're near the bottom in meeting that requirement.
So, get ready to see players get overpaid for mediocre talent boys. Unless we end up making a big splash in FA grabbing someone worthy of the money, we're going to see backups get paid like starters. But who knows.......maybe we'll get lucky with the next GM and actually get some actual #1's and talent in other areas of need.
I think to some people's excitement Revis' name will obviously be thrown around as the question will undoubtedly come up regarding will he take a massive paycut to get a LTD from the Pats while they exercise their 10 million option on Gronkowski. They'd be insane to let him go, but considering he only had a base of 640k this season, will they let their golden TE go to keep Revis?
