Posted 6 Dec 2013No... The OL is not nearly as big of an issue as people make it to be. WR is absolutely a big issue, ignoring that until you find a QB would be stupid IMO. We need to get 2 starting WRs, we can't just pick guys up off the street and expect whoever is at QB to look good with them. We need to build legit talent on offense period. We can't just hope that we find that special QB that can make anyone look good, so we need to get WRs that can get open and make plays. Teams are going to continue to overload blitz us as long as we have WRs thtat don't threaten a defense 1 on 1 and a QB who can't handle the pressure.
Agree that Holmes is gone and Hill is a BUST as are our other receivers except for Kerley. But our OLine is not near good enough. Ferguson has been living on reputation and the rest except for Mangold are no good either.
But we need a QB more than anything. Smith is not the answer. I could live with Int's if he was trying to throw between defenders (like Cutler). But his Int's are from an inability to see or read defenses. That doesn't change very easily rookie or not. And in this day and age we don't have time to hope for development.
I will be surprised if we win another game this year. We could wind up with the 5th pick this year. Plus we have a high 3dr round pick from TB (Revis).
Also, we will be well under the cap this year and should use it in free agnecy to secure a LT (like Brandon Albert), a safety (maybe Byrd) and a CB (Milner is not the answer). Harris should be renegotiated
With our large number of draft picks we should do whatever we have to to draft Manziel. I don't care if he is short, wild, crazy or anything else. He has that swagger that is needed in a QB in New York and his legs, arm and head are right for us. He could be another Brees or Wilson (Can't believe I'm referring to Wilson after 2 years in the league but the kid is really good).
Then we draft a WR, TE, G, RT and CB/S and just maybe we can start to win
Posted 11 Nov 2013So we got some young talent but still have holes. So how can we fill them?
well 1st off we have 23 million dead money this year, mostly from revis (13 million) all that comes off the books.
Then we save naother 8.3million by cutting or trading sanchez now were at 31 million
we could save 8.2 million from cutting holmes. but i think he takes a paycut and we save another 4 million so were up to 35 million
So the money is there. now what do we need?
QB - sign a decent veteran behind geno
options are weak. but maybe shaun hill?
WR - injuries have hurt us. but we still need 1 more. we'll keep hill, holmes, kerly for sure. I think we should keep nelson and salas. and sign 1 free agent. there are alot of good options
devon hester (as a return man too)
I think nicks britt, and maclin are the 3 best options age and talentwise. nicks is a big body who fights for the ball. so is britt but he has off field issues. maclin is probably the best overall but has injury history. any 3 when paired with holmes, kerly, and hill will make a good WR group
TE - winslow and cumberland are both FAs. rueland looked ok but i don't want him as a starter. i think we bring back cumberland and let winslow walk. we could bring back keller or go to the draft. also olsen is another good option but overall weak TE FA group
RB - we should sign Run DMC. he is the big play guy we need. oakland will let him walk and he won't be expensive becuase he can't stay healthy. which for us is ok with ivory and powell on the roster.
O-line - we need a better RT and more depth and possibly a LG an grab depth in FA and a RT in the draft
CB - we should draft another CB to go with wilson, cro, an milner. but not too high. maybe 4th round
S - need another one to go with allen. mikell and draft would be nice
OLB - draft one to replace pace as a starter
ok so resigns
pace colon howard cumberland hillard
Don't understand where you feel we need a RB. I think we are fine with our group as they are. And taking a WR in free agency doesn't make sense either. How many times do we see, players come from other teams and not live up to expectations.
I would use the draft to take impact players wherever they may be other than the defensive line. I believe Barnes can cover for Pace if we have to.
The one position no one seems to mention and that I believe is one of our weakest points is left tackle. Brick has been terrible for us. This year he has been pushed around and in 2010 graded out to be one of the worst LT's in the league. He is living on his reputation. And at his best he was never a great run blocker. I would spend whatever is necessary on the free agent market if a solid LT was available.
I think Winters and Colon, Mangold and Howard do a fine job. Colon needs to cut down the penalties and Winters is a kid. Ducasse will never pan out so getting rid of him makes sense.
I would definitely get rid of Sanchez and Holmes and require Harris to take a pay cut. With that money we could strengthen our secondary and see if any truly talented players become available on the free agent market. Otherwise, the draft is our best option and we should save the money for the following year.
Posted 16 Aug 2013As he will be starting week 1 vs. the bucs.
You say that as if it makes you happy. Do you believe Sanchez is going to all of a sudden become a reliable and accurate QB? Do you think his inability to play the position decently when his primary target is covered is going to improve or his overall poor accuracy is going to improve because of some vitamins he takes?
He is due many millions next year when we will not be forced to pay him capwise. Do you think we will pay him 8 million and if so I envy you your eternal optimism in the face of reality.
Sanchez is not a good QB. He lacks accuracy, decision making, a strong arm, fleet feet. He has the words down pat. he says the right things to the press. Not a fair and balanced exchange.
I'm not saying Smith is the answer. I am saying that if we come out of this season not knowing about Smith it will be another "But it's the Jet's" moments.
Case in point. Sanchez starts game 2. Ryan points out Smith's ankle. THEN WHY WOULDN'T YOU ANNOUNCE HE IS OUT OF THE GAME DUE TO INJURY???? If he plays him at all he should be fired. Either the kid deserves his chance to start in this so called fair competition or he doesn't. But for sure, if he is to play wouldn't it be better to have him line up behind the starting O-line instead of the second unit. I would think his injured ankle would sure think so. Or you just don't play him due to injury. But not Ryan.
This is a young rookie that hears his coach tell the press he had a "brutal" day. When Sanchez had his 10th brutal GAME we could hear Ryan saying things like "He made some bad decisions and bad throws but he also did some things well." It's so obvious Ryan cannot separate his feelings for Sanchez from his logic. And he deserves to go down with him because of it.
And to those who believe we are a playoff team - I hope you are right. Above all I am a Jets fan and will root my ass off for Sanchez or whoever plays in that uniform. But I am disgusted by the lack of intelligence exhibited in the way they go about their business.
Posted 14 Aug 2013Sanchez will start and here's why: the offense is being run by Marty Mo, that doesn't just include the gameplan, but personnel too. Rex is basically the "HC in charge of defense". Marty is his counterpart on offense. Geno comes from a spread offense and the NFL game is moving too fast for him at this point, evidenced by the amount of "sacks" on him in camp. Sanchez on the other hand, looks to be far more polished than in the past, judging this based on his footwork which for once looked like a real NFL QB and not someone dancing salsa in the pocket. Also, this is the first time in 5 seasons that Sanchez has zero turnover at the WR position, which is huge because for once we didn't go out and get a shitty over the hill vet at the expense of a young guy making strides. Finally, and this is most important, Marty Mo has never went into a season with a rookie QB. So much of the WC offense he runs is predicated on timing and quick decision making that having a rookie in there wouldn't work. I know Sanchez isn't the sharpest tool in the shed when it comes to reading defenses, but he's been baptized by fire at this point to know enough to not do dumb shit.
I am amazed at all of you that think Sanchez should earn the starting spot by beating out Smith in practice. I watch lots of sports shows and the one thing that is consistent among the reporters when talking about the Jets is that they all finish with "But it's the Jets" as if that explains all of the illogical moves they make. And the sad thing is they continue to reinforce those sentiments.
Mark Sanchez is a practice player. His decision making after 4 years is atrocious - as evidenced by the INT he threw on the first series against the Lions - not unusual for him. Sure, he threw a TD to a receiver that was open by 10 yards. He didn't have to check off - he was his primary target.
Nobody believes Sanchez will be here next year with that big salary number and those low percentages and TD to INT ratios - nobody except maybe Rex. So in essence we have a lame duck QB and a rookie we need to assess. We have a team that does not figure to make the playoffs but even if they do does not have the horses to go deep into them.
When Dallas or Indy were in those situations with Aikman and Manning they played them and let them experience the speed of the game firsthand. Likewise with Luck, RG3, Wilson, Ryan, etc. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't record wise but it always works to get them the experience they need.
The Jets as sure as I am alive will elect to start Sanchez. Why? Because they are the Jets. They should start Smith. Even watching their passes, it is clear Smith has the superior arm and athleticism. So Sanchez has to rely on what to keep the job. Whatever it is I don't see it and haven't for quite awhile. What a shame
Posted 26 Jun 2013Well we also know Sanchez has spent plenty of time in the film room and on the practice field. We know about the "Jets West" camp he has every year. So stuff like this doesn't really bother me. At this point we know what Sanchez is. He's not a QB that is going to win you any games just on his arm alone. But we also know he can make big plays in big games. He's a good QB when he has a good defense and a good running game to take some of the load off. As I've said many times before, I don't need him to be like John Elway or Brett Favre. I'll be happy if he's like Phil Simms and Troy Aikman. But I think Sanchez his been hit soo much now that he hears footsteps and pressure that isn't there. I don't think any amount of extra study and practice is going to make him any better, so he might as well have a good time now. Because if he plays like shit again this 2013 season, there will be less limousine rides with beautiful women.
I'm glad you would be happy if he played like Simms or Aikman instead of Favre or Elway. Where in the world did you come to think that Aikman is just acceptable. Aikman may be the most accurate passer of his generation and that is something Sanchez will never be.
