Posted 25 Nov 2014Do you SERIOUSLY believe that if we wasted millions on the player that USED to be the best CB in the game but has been getting beat up on the last 2 seasons would have us with a better record right now? I certainly don't. If Mevis was here, there would be no Decker, no C. Johnson, no Vick & no Chris Ivory and our secondary would STILL be getting lit up like a Christmas tree.
So yeah.......I do have the balls to post such a thread. Mevis is overrated and had the chance to be here but he chose not to be when he decided he'd rather be a journeyman instead of a potential Hall of Famer. His chances of making the hall has GREATLY decreased the last 2 years. He went from looking like a 1st ballot guy to being just another CB who USED to have special talent. Revis Island has been sunk.
Maybe they could sink him here next year. I don't know where you are getting this information that Revis is a shell of himself. He is light years better than anything we have or could have ever dreamed about having. And I don't like the guy. I think he is a cold business person who has no loyalty to anything but money. having said that, he is outstanding at his craft.
And when you try and compare him to us getting Decker, Vick, Ivory, Johnson, I would say that while I like Decker and love Ivory - our offense has put up 10 TD's this entire year and not scored over 25 points even once. So I am at a loss to understand the financial comparison. How about we got all those guys and still had $24 million left over. We could have had Revis as well.
More importantly, Revis is gone. We need to face up to the fact that we have no offensive line, QB, CB's, pass rushers and our safety Pryor may be a bust.
Idzik is horrendous, Rex needs to go, we either draft Marriota or Winston OR trade the pick for more picks and build up the O-line and CB's and draft a pass rushing OLB and then pick up a Henne, Stanton type of QB (like Orton), who can sit back and be accurate - just not a world beater.
Posted 4 May 2014Why compare that to the Seattle situation??? The Seahawks took Russell Wilson in round 3, big difference than investing a 18th overall pick in a QB. I rather pass on Bridgewater, don't think hes all that special and I don't see what makes him better than Geno Smith.
I think that it's pretty much guaranteed that we go CB or WR in round 1.
I can't point any finger on it and haven't read anything about it but I think the Jets really want Dee Ford and would consider trading down a little to get him and an extra 2nd. I think he is a beast and while OLB isn't our greatest need, an outside pass rushing demon makes it easier on our DB's.
Posted 4 May 2014Way to go out on a limb with your first 2 picks.
Tell me, what's the difference between ODB, Cooks, Lee, Allen Robinson and Jordan Matthews? STFU because you can't. It makes zero sense to draft one of the 5 at 18 because all 5 will be on the board and each of them can develop and be as good as the other. There's such a logjam at WR this draft that, compounded with the fact that we just snagged the best WR in FA, we will absolutely not draft a WR at 18 (unless the unthinkable happens and Evans falls). We're either going to trade back and then draft one or we're going to go with Ebron/Dennard/OLB.
I think the best pick for us would be Dee Ford or Darqueze Denard. I know it sounds silly to take an OLB instead of WR or TE. I think the draft is deep enough for us to get a WR in the second round (Robinson - both, Adams, Matthews, Landry, Bryant, etc.)and a TE in the third (Fedorowicz or if we are lucky Nicklas).
Ford is a beast and with our D-Line being as young but really good as it is and with Coples, Davis, Harris as the other LB's we could rush the QB unmercifully.
I would then look to trade for Josephs by offering our 4th round picks for him.
O-Line and CB we have to get lucky with the remaining picks (1- 4th, 1 - 5th, 4 - 6th's).
Posted 4 Apr 2014Fair enough, but what about our young QB? assuming he beats out vick then we need to give him people to throw to. If lets say vick starts for us, then we would be in a "win now" mode and you'd want him to have weapons if your gonna try and make a push.
Honestly Qb was our biggets issue last year. geno did some good things, but he also lost us some games. If vick can have a monster year like his 1st year when he came back, there is no reason we couldn't compete
I know this will not be popular but if Bortles, Manziel or Bridgewater is available when we draft at 18 we should grab one. This game today is a QB game. One franchise QB is worth 10 years of playoffs. If anyone out there believes Geno is the guy then God Bless You. I don't say he isn't but for sure I don't have any confidence that he is. WR's are very very deep and we can get one in round 2. True, our TE situation sucks but maybe one can be gotten in later rounds. I would love Manziel or Bortles. I don't think they will be around but you never know. If not then Beckham or Cooks would be great but I would try and trade down and take Jace Amaro who I believe will be better than Ebron.
Posted 28 Mar 2014New York Jets: C- Grade
You can't exactly call this a successful offseason for the Jets. Rex Ryan wanted to bring back Darrelle Revis, but arch rival New England stole him away. Ryan then wanted Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Antonio Cromartie, yet New York whiffed on both and now has nothing at corner. Meanwhile, the front office added a No. 1 receiver for Geno Smith. Except Eric Decker is not a No. 1 option. He was a product of Peyton Manning, so he won't be nearly as effective in his new home.
Free agency wasn't a total disaster though. The Jets brought back Willie colon cheaply and inked Breno Giacomini to a reasonable deal. Of course, Giacomini is a downgrade from Austin Howard, who was yet another player to get away from Ryan.
UPDATE: The signing of Philadelphia's former quarterback drops this to a C-. He will fire yet another coach (Rex Ryan will be added to the extensive list of coaches he has canned) and will destroy the confidence of Geno Smith. Not that Smith had much hope in the first place, but the Jets wasted $5 million on this signing.
NFL Free Agent Grades:
Willie Colon, G, Jets (re-sign) - A-
Breno Giacomini, OT, Seahawks - B
Calvin Pace, DE/OLB, Jets (re-sign) - B
Jeff Cumberland, TE, Jets (re-sign) - B
Eric Decker, WR, Broncos - C
QBDK, QB, Eagles - D
Walter Football clearly has a bias against Vick. There is no question Vick was the number 1 QB on the free agent market. And by signing him we can't lose in the sense that if Smith is the QB long term for this team he should be able to beat out Vick. If he can't then we know what we have with Smith and we will have a QB who can definitely play the game - as long as he stays healthy (big ?). Maybe Walter has a dog and that's it. I have one but I believe in second chances and Vick seems genuinely remorseful.
As for Decker, he refers to him as an overrated number 1 but we paid him as a number 2. By the way, Deckers numbers weren't bad with Tebow throwing to him either. And if we can land a true deep threat, he will be the perfect compliment to him. Very good signing.
Not sure who the better RT is as opinions vary, but we saved good money on the exchange.
Where Idzik did screw up is obviously on CB. Cromartie was pretty bad last year so upgrading that position was not hard to do and he blew it. But we may get lucky when it comes time to release players based on cap issues in June.
We need to try and get DeSean so we don't have to take a receiver in the first round and can take either one of the top CB's like Dennard or, if they are gone, a TE like Amaro. I know everyone loves Ebron but I think Amaro is the better TE for the Jets (check his numbers, size and attitude). Then take some CB's in later rounds. Sherman was a third round pick or maybe even lower. They do exist.
