Jets Should Emulate Colts And Dolphins
Posted 11 February 2013 - 06:56 PM
Colts were lucky and bad at the right time. If Manning comes out a year before, the Jets probably take him. Colts wind up with who? Ryan Leaf.
Similar with Luck. If Luck came out a year before, Carolina or Denver take him and the entire draft changes. Newton and Luck are tied, Von Miller goes to somebody else. But Luck stayed an extra year and it is what it is.
This is why the "tank 2013" theory just doesn't work. Lets say Johnny Football is the QB everybody wants and puts up another monster year. The Jets stink and get the #1 pick. They love him. Want him. Except he decides to go back to college. Jets have to find somebody else and there might be others, but really, Luck, Manning, etc are once a generation kind of QBs. It's not like they become available every other year. Other players like Rodgers, Wilson, Favre, etc are guys who were great, but nobody knew they would be as great as they were going to be. Favre was traded away. Rodgers sat for 3 years. Wilson was a 3rd round pick nobody really heard of. RG3 came out of nowhere to have one hell of a season. But he wasn't on anybodies #1 pick list before his heisman.
