Posted 21 Jan 2013The QB we are looking for can most likely be had as our 3rd round draft pick. E J Manuel is a Senior QB graduating from Florida State. He is 6'5" and 240 lbs. He can really scramble and run for positive yardage while boasting of a very strong arm and really good accuracy.
The knock is that he played poorly in the bigger games and maybe that is a bad sign. But go on youube and look at his highlights. To me he is a great gamble. In fact, if we could trade down in the first round lets say 4 spots or so we could still get an OLB like Ansah and pick up an extra 2nd round pick. With the two 2nd round picks we could drat a G and maybe Manuel.
Posted 15 Jan 2013The Jets have 3 real issues that will stop the top GM's from wanting to come here. The salary cap is bad (not as bad as advertised but no walk in the park to work out), our ridiculous insistence on keeping the head coach (not lobbying for him to be fired - just to allow the new GM to make that decision), and the QB from hell.
Based on this it's no wonder the top people aren't lining up - and I'm not even sure who those people might be. But here's a suggestion that the Jets might entertain. I say this only because it may also be their fallback. Hire Scott Cohen on a one year probationary status. Allow him to show the organization what he can do with this draft and work to get the cap down. If we are smart with the salary cap, we can be in a much better situation the following year as I believe we can release Sanchez or trade him with little or no consequences. We can also allow a new GM to pick his own head coach. If Cohen surprises us, we might find a very capable GM and a good draft. If he doesn't then we will be terrible and in position to draft high with hopefully a better crop of QB's coming out in 2014.
If they go this way, then we should draft OLB, ILB, S and offensive linemen in this year's draft, pay Revis his money and the following year draft a QB, TE and WR in the first 3 rounds.
If we settle for a mediocre GM then we are just making the problem that much worse. And that is something the Jets are very good at.
Posted 3 Jan 2013Taking a break from the Jets for a minute - my son and I are arguing about who should be named MVP this year. My guess is there are only two real choices but I'll leave it to you to chime in. My son Max says Adrian Peterson because he took a team that is average and only won 3 games last year to the playoffs while running for over 2,000 yards. I favor Peyton Manning as he switched teams to a team that had a completely different offensive scheme, changed it, acted as the sort of offensive coordinator, calling his own plays and took them to the best record in all of football and the favorite to win it all. In both cases, these players were coming off horrendous injuries.
Let's hear from others.
Posted 27 Nov 2012I just read DE Jason Babin was cut by the Eagles. Last year he had 18 sacks. This year he has only 5.5 sacks but on our team that is better than what we have. Also, with the Eagles being as bad as they are and their new coordinator, it's possible he lost the edge. While the Jets don't promise much better, he might be really energized on a new team and we sure could use a front line of Babin, Wilkerson, Coples and Pouha with Devito and Ellis as reserves.
Not sure of money though.
