  1. This organization honestly doesn't get it. It's sad. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app

  3. 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.
  4. Mahomes.
  5. 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...
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. I would be very unhappy if we went Safety, Corner is the first two rounds as per McShay.
  10. In a vacuum that's fine..but if every player threatened to hold out (and in this case actually did) if any of their friends weren't being treated, what they deemed, "well financially", the league would be heading down hill faster than it is now. Last year Mangold, Marshall and Decker were part of the problem - not the solution.
  11. Neither Marino or Ewing are overrated at all. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  12. This is exactly what good owners do. Woody, on the other, is incredibly reactionary to the media and fan base. He needs to take the heat and trust the people he put in charge. It still may fail, in fact it's likely to fail - but this type of rebuild gives you the best chance to win going forward.
  13. What every has been without a QB. It's at least two years as we still have to find and develop a QB.
  14. The bolded statement - and it's stated all the time - is simply wrong. Owners can't cut players whenever they want. Owners can only cut players if it says so in the contract. Owners ALWAYS abide by the contract. There is NOTHING in the football CBA that says you CAN't have a guaranteed contract. It's what is negotiated in each contract. If every players held out whenever they didn't like their contract the league would fall apart. There are plenty of good players playing under a contract they don't believe is fair. Yet hold outs are rare, let alone multiple holdouts in a short career. Revis was a selfish player.
