  1. You pay whatever it takes. Much of what you stated is true but point #3 is simply wrong. You have 15 years to build a team around him. The first 3 years are his time to learn anyway -let him take his lumps but stick with him.. The fact many first round and second round picks bust - there's just a good a chance that whoever you do end up taking (with the ransom picks) will bust too. Until you find the QB everything is meaningless, floating in football purgatory. Get the QB and start building.
  2. If Josh McCown is named the starter this organization it truly clueless.
  3. The vast majority of this entire article's premise is false or irrelevant if you assume the authors first point is accurate. If you say he truly subscribes to BPA (and referenced rd. 1-4 as evidence) then any other decision as to what he likes to draft or not draft is irrelevant.
  4. I agree that Mac was okay letting Fitz walk, but there was internal sentiment for him...Mangold, Marshall, Decker etc...They basically forced Mac's hand (they really thought they were going to have a REALLY good offense) That's not to say Bowles wasn't pushing for him, but I think it was more than just him. It essentially split the locker room.....and then when proved to actually Suck - the locker turned into a F-in disaster.
  5. No. You don't need to continue to bring in 8 win QB's. You keep drafting QB's until you find a legitimate franchise QB. Continuing to roll out mediocre,, recently cut trash is the worst thing a team could do.
  6. He's a back-up level QB which simply is never worth the distraction.
  7. This organization honestly doesn't get it. It's sad. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app

  9. In this case Adams was a luxury pick the Jets simply couldn't afford to take. It seems at worst Mac could have gotten a 3rd this year a 1 next year. When you've entirely dismantled the team you give up the right to take a safety in the first round, especially if you can trade down. People don't want to hear this, but when you've messed up the team so badly as the Jets have - there are multiple positions that should be entirely off your board in the first round...and trading down should be your priority. It's now clear to me Mac is not the guy to rebuild this roster.
  10. Mahomes.
  11. Agree. It's right out of the Woody Johnson playbook. PR is the priority over football. It's the sign of a long term losing organization - but it is exactly how this team has been managed under Woody Johnson. Jets will take a first round QB...
  12. Saying definitively there isn't a QB in this draft is ridiculous. It's such a crap shoot. In my opinion you keep taking the best QB you possibly can in the draft until you find one - and when you find him you have 15 years to build a team around him. You don't want to hope to make a run with a good defense and running game and then suck for 10 years again. You want to be competitive year in and year out for a decade.
  13. I don't buy that for a second. You give the NFL too much credit. Conspiracy theories like this one are typically exactly that - An unproven, unfounded theory with no support or evidence to back it up. Especially when there is a clear precedence for this. I think Ray Rice is a closer example than Tebow. Many players have hit their wives, many players find work. Had Rice not hit his wife he would have a career at least 2 or 3 years more. But he was a decling talent that would have simply brought too much of a distraction. The NFL owners didn't blacklist him, it was just a matter of he wasn't worth the headache. NFL owners don't care about anything but money and winning - signing CK would be more a negative than a positive.
  14. This is exactly right. It's not racism, it's simply that he's a back-up caliber player and it's simply not worth the media attention and distraction they'll get for a back-up. So, yes it's connected to what he did, but no it's not racist. Any team that signs him would be doing it to the detriment of their team and solely signing him for political reason - and the NFL isn't in the politics business.
  15. I would be very unhappy if we went Safety, Corner is the first two rounds as per McShay.
