I might agree with the whole "dump Sanchez" thing if the whole thing wasn't built around "the Jets should tank 2013." Worse is that its not even written as a suggestion, but rather the known outcome (Jets arent winning in 2013). Jet fans and Cubs fans would get along entirely too well.

 

When the Jets and Cubs both make the playoffs this year, boy, will our faces be red.

The difference is this year is already known to have no SB shot.  So there's no point in spreading the suck into a 2nd or 3rd year.  If there is legit competition, Sanchez loses the job.  If Sanchez wins the job, it wasn't legit competition.

 

There is no fixing him.  He isn't talented enough from the neck up, nor is his arm accurate enough, to be a good NFL QB.  This will not change.  You can't un-stupid him no matter who he's surrounded with.  

 

Do you seriously think we are superbowl contenders this year? There are stop-gap players or outright holes at half our starting positions.

 

  • We have no starting QB. Sanchez does not count.  There are no good FA QBs and if there were any we couldn't afford them anyway.  And it's supposed to be this terrible pool of QB talent.  Doesn't mean none will be good, but the likelihood of any being average or better as rookies seems pretty slim.
  • Neither of our 2 RBs seem to have any "it" factor.  I'm ok with that, but only if we have a serious passing game, which we don't.
  • 1 starting WR may not even play and is a notorious douche.  The other starter can't catch or run routes, fast as he is.  Our slot receiver is pretty good.
  • Our starting TE (Cumberland) is a backup TE.
  • Our LT and C positions are set.  We're going to bring Howard back because he's a RFA and cheap, but not because he's so awesome.  As of today our 2 guards are Ducasse and I guess Schlauderaff - two backup/stopgap guys - until the draft.  They're both backups.
  • Now even with that we might be able to get by if we had a really good QB.  But we don't.
  • We have no starting OLBers except backup players starting due to lack of talent and money.  Presumably we'll draft one this year, but the other is going to be McEntyre or Sapp or someone similar.
  • One of our starting ILBers is the NFL's most overpaid player this side of Mark Sanchez, and runs like a pregnant hippo expecting quintuplets.  The other is fast and would seem to look the part, but he hardly wowed as a rookie.
  • We potentially have 2 great CBs. One of whom needs a big new contract extension right now - which will eat up some more of the minuscule cap space we have - or we'll have to trade him before the season.  The other is very good but had a great season in '12.  The next guy on the bubble is only good when the throw is off the mark or the receiver drops the pass and stinks otherwise.
  • We have no starting safeties.  Josh Bush may be ok but he's never started.  
  • Oh yeah, and the depth behind these guys is non-existent.  

The roster is in deep sh*t, we don't have the cap room to noticeably improve it, so we're not winning sh*t.  I'd like to not f*ck up 2014+ as much as possible.

 

Where did I ever say the Jets are going to be SB contenders are even inferred it? I have stated that it doesn't make sense to cut a guy when he is going to cost you 8.5 no matter what. and you might as well gamble on him to see if he turns the corner and get whatever you can out of him. That has nothing to do with being SB contenders so most of your rant has nothing to do with what I have been posting?

 

That being said, I find it funny that you KNOW for a fact that the Jets won't be SB contenders and that they will suck. I would have bet my last cent that the 1-15 Dolphins would only win 4-6 games the next season but they won the division on the heels of noodle arm Pennington. In other words, anything is possible in the NFL from one season to the next.

 

You also make a lot of assumptions about the roster, and Idz hasn't even had a chance to make his imprint on it yet. Lets wait until after the draft to even start talking about the roster for next season. It may be as bad as you say, vastly improved, or more than likely somewhere in between. 

 

I also find it interesting that you find no correlation between the severe drop off in offensive talent the last 2 seasons and the plunge Sanchez has taken. I'm not saying that Sanchez will be a great player with better talent around him, but certainly better than he has been.

 

A couple of things on the cap: from what I have read, Idz is very good with the cap and related matters. Don't you think that Idz can get that straightened out without cutting Sanchez right now? I certainly want to give him the chance to. IIRC, we didn't even spend to the cap limit last year leaving 2-3 million on the table. That's half the 2014 Sanchez charge you are up in arms about. Certainly a more compentent capologist would not leave 2-3 mil on the table and can manage Sanchez hit on 2014.

 

You also assume that Sanchez will be gone in 2014, but we have no idea what Idz is going to do. He may keep him for 2014 while grooming  a draft pick to take over in 2015. We just don't know his thinking at this point.

 

Also, Idz is going to want to field a competitive team. I don't think most GM's go into a season wanting to tank it. That's a losing mentality and can fester in the locker room.

 

At any rate, if Idz agreed with you, it most likely would have been done already. He probably believes he can get the cap straightened out without cutting Sanchez and absorbing 8.5 for absolutely nothing.

 

I really believe the intense hatred of Sanchez is driving a lot of this. I don't really blame you as I have had simiar feeling of Jets players in the past. But I just can't see cutting him now.

To echo Sperm-keeping Sanchez this year has a cost in 2014. Cuyt him now and you free up more cap room. If this is a 4-12/6-10 team, there's no point to overpaying Nacho sh*tbox one penny more.

 

To clarify-I don't hate him as a person, but with the money he is making at this piss poor level of production he's harming this franchise. Whether he is here or not the QB slot is going to be difficult. But perhaps you could audtion someone for 2014 now  and get an idea what QB X can do. Sanchez is not going to be here in 2014.

 

I just posted about how a compentent capologist should be able to handle the 2014 charge and minimize the effect. IMO this isn't going to be a 4-6 win team. Rex's D alone should get you 5-6 wins. We had zero offense this year with a rash of injuires, 2 incompenent coaches in Cavanaugh and Sporano, a starting RT with very little experience, Sanchez worst season as a pro, and ultimateli a JV level WR corps. There really is nowhere to go but up on offense. I like the Marty hiring and he is a proven OC. I also have faith that Idz will improve the roster on O depsite the cap situation.

 

I didn't mean to infer that anyone hates Sanchez personally. I realize a big part of that is the stupid contract Tanny gave him, and can cause great anger. I hated O'brien his last few years and wanted him gone much sooner than they got rid of him, but the cap situation of course was different then.

 

As far as new QB's go, I'm in the camp of letting them learn for a season ot two before throwing them into the fire. If Sanchez is bad as you say, at least they can learn from his mistakes.

I was stating what I think they should do, not what I think they will do.  And I don't care what Idzik or Ryan would do anyway.  I don't have to do any PR ass-covering since I'm not the GM.  Idzik does, however.  Reading Rex's totally unenthusiastic and seemingly forced support for Sanchez, it seems he knows Sanchez is garbage also.  No one announces there will be competition at a position unless he thinks there's lots of room for improvement.  Notice he isn't saying there's going to be competition for Ferguson, Mangold, Cromartie, Revis (if he returns), Wilkerson, etc.  The reason is obvious.  He may be a silly man and lacking in certain areas as a HC, but he's not retarded.

 

Jets are absorbing $8.25M of new money to Sanchez in 2013 no matter what.  We have a mediocre to major mess of a roster situation in 2013 no matter what.  Why push some of it off to 2014? I think we can be contenders by 2014.  Having Sanchez on the team in 2013 only hurts that because it means he hits the cap significantly for yet another year no matter what we do after the '13 season.

 

It has nothing to do with personal feelings for Sanchez. My answer is because I don't give a crap about him at all.  He is bad for the team and having his cap hits spill over to 2014 is worse for the team.  Next year you'll see why, when we add a $2M player at a position instead of a $7M player because of Sanchez's dead cap space (and that's if we do nothing; restructure him a little and it's even worse).

 

Idzik cannot get this "straightened out" no matter how much of a chance you want to give him.  Sanchez stays in '13 and he hits the cap in '14.  Sanchez is shipped off in the spring and he doesn't.  There is no way around it because the Jets have already paid him so much in bonuses.  The choice is to have the cap hit for bonus money paid accelerate to 2013 or 2014.  I would choose 2013.


Sanchez sucks no matter who the receivers are.  If a guy is open he is open.  Whether a receiver's name is Clyde Gates or Antonio Cromartie or Larry Fitzgerald, the ball doesn't get delivered on-target on its own.  He cannot throw a football straight and cannot read coverage.  All he sees is his own receiver (and so does everyone else because of his idiotic stare-downs) and even when that receiver is open he still fails to throw a strike 80-90% of the time.

Yes, he should be someone they cut now, if there is no cap effect. He is not an NFL caliber player.

 

Tebow is an interesting situation. I don't think they are going to get anything for him now in a trade. I really don't know the cap implications if they cut him, especially time wise. Can Marty get enough out of him and make it appear the Jets are going to keep him, and entice another team to offer a reasonable trade, or enough to justify keeping him on the roster? I hate to see us lose a 4th rounder for essentially nothing. Tebow was 100% misused by Sporano, and in the past shown he can be a play maker.

What are the cap ramifications in 2014 if we cut Sanchez now as opposed to keeping him for this season?

 

For 2014, he's 100% off the cap if we cut him now.  

 

He counts $5M if we keep him and do nothing.  

 

He'll count more than $5M in '14 if we restructure his contract now to lower his '13 cap number.

It will be interesting to see if Marty agrees.  Some QBs have gotten better with time.  Rich Gannon jumps to mind. 

 

You want to hang onto Sanchez and watch him struggle for another 7 years in case he turns into Rich Gannon?

 

Name another QB who was as crappy as Sanchez at this stage of his career - and then factor in today's officiating compared to the 1990s and earlier - who turned into a pro bowl QB.

We disagree in several areas on this and I'll try to address each one.

 

First off, Rex knows zero about offense so when did his opinion on talent on offense start to matter? I would take anything he says about Sanchez with a grain of salt, or anyone else on O for that matter. What Idz says is what counts since he will be the one providing the talent. Idz said that there will competition at EVERY position and that no position is guaranteed at this point. That's all that matters.

 

I disagree with you on Idz fixing the cap, but lets talk about the cap in both years. If you cut Sanchez now, you take the extra 5 mil hit in this years cap, plus the cap hit on his replacement. Using you figures, lets say the replacement is a  2 mil hit. Now there's a 7 mil extra hit on this year cap (your figure for 2014). This years cap is a 100 times worse that what it will be in 2014. So taking the extra 7 mil hit this year may require cutting some other player that wouldn't be cut otherise, but more importantly consider this: Suppose there is a FA or trade that Idz really wants. It could be QB or any other glaring need. With the extra 7 mil hit, Idz may not be able to pull the trigger on it. He is going to try to field a competetive team and adding another 7 mil to a cash strapped year when you don't need to isn't wise IMO.

 

What it really comes down to is which year can the 5 mil be better handled. Cleary this year is a mess, but there's going to be a lot more room in 2014 by all acounts I've read. So the 5 mil will be better managed in next years cap. I highly doubt this extra 5 mil is going to prevent Idz from getting the players he wants in 2014. Most likely it will prevent him from getting players he wants in 2013.

 

As far as Sanchez, yes he's not a great QB at this point and he had a horrible, horrible season last year, but think you go a little overboard. If he is so worthless and can't make any throws, we never would have won any playoff games his first 2 years or even make the playoffs for that matter. It's not just coincidence that his level of play severely dropped when replacing WR's like Braylon and J-Co with an over the hill and worthless Mason, and an out of football for 2 years Plaxico, and a extremely raw rookie in Hill. That's not even mentioning losing guys like Woody and Faneca and the severe drop off there on the line, and the huge drop off in the RB position when Greene became the starter. So to say that he is totally worthless and can't improve is going overboard IMO.

Name another QB who was as crappy as Sanchez at this stage of his career - and then factor in today's officiating compared to the 1990s and earlier - who turned into a pro bowl QB.

Who says he has to stay another 7 years? Why not see what he can do with compenent offensive coaching and hopefully improved offensive talent for a year since you have to pay him anyways? Then evaluate him again after 2013 to see what you want to do. Meanwhile draft picks can learn the game. I know you don't think Sanchez can improve any, but supposed lightning strikes and he does? This would at least improve his trade compensation offers if nothing else.

7 years is in response to Rich Gannon because that's about how long it took for him to "get it" even though he never turned the ball over 25-30x in back-to-back seasons or had twice as many turnovers as TDs over a full season.  

 

Why not see what he can do with a different coaching staff on offense? Because he will still be the same QB.  It is a waste of time and contributes to putting off a SB run with a real QB by eating up future cap space.

 

Sanchez is useless.  Actually he's worse than merely being useless.  Kellen Clemens was useless.  Sanchez is useless and super-expensive and being a former reach top-5 pick for the team means they're going to piss away season after season hoping & praying he gets what he cannot ever get.  

 

He is too stupid to learn, processes what he sees too slowly, and is too inaccurate no matter who his receivers are.  Yes that inaccuracy will be hidden better with better receivers, but he misses guys wide, wide open and this will not change with better receivers.  

 

He has no trade value unless we eat his salary first (therefore he might have some trade value if we agree to pay at least $7M of his $8.25M with our trade partner picking up the balance).  

 

He will have no trade value after this year because he's due $11.5M in new money in '14.  Even if he only reverts back to the "pretty crappy" QB he was in year 2 instead of "super crappy" he has been the past 2 years since, no one's giving up anything for the privilege of paying him that kind of coin.

One thing is for sure, you don't need a top 10 pick to get your franchise QB.That's why I think the Jets should draft at least 1 QB every year until they get this sorted out. And not just 7th rounders like McSack. If they like one of the top QB's this year, I wouldn't be opposed to taking one in the 2nd and your guy in the 6th and cutting McSack. Let the rooks and Sanchez battle it out and hopefully the situation will get a lot better going forward.

It's not just coincidence that his level of play severely dropped when replacing WR's like Braylon and J-Co with an over the hill and worthless Mason, and an out of football for 2 years Plaxico, and a extremely raw rookie in Hill. That's not even mentioning losing guys like Woody and Faneca and the severe drop off there on the line, and the huge drop off in the RB position when Greene became the starter. So to say that he is totally worthless and can't improve is going overboard IMO.

 

Rex knows how to defend against offense so that is at least something.  Meanwhile the guy who "knows zero about offense" had been Sanchez's single biggest supporter.  That is, until he was forced to accept what is obvious to all but a few Jets fans who understandably wish for the impossible.

 

Idzik may try to field a competitive team, and he may even succeed in doing so.  But he isn't going to field a SB-competitive team.  Not this year.

 

And the extra cap space to get rid of Sanchez is easy.  Cut or trade Pouha.

For 2014, he's 100% off the cap if we cut him now.  
 
He counts $5M if we keep him and do nothing.  
 
He'll count more than $5M in '14 if we restructure his contract now to lower his '13 cap number.



Off the books in 2014 if cut now? Time to get rid of him. Idzik didn't draft Sanchez. He doesn't have any ties to him. If the Jets are truly going to rebuild you move on from Sanchez now. Take your lumps in 2013 and look towards 2014.

You want to hang onto Sanchez and watch him struggle for another 7 years in case he turns into Rich Gannon?

 

Name another QB who was as crappy as Sanchez at this stage of his career - and then factor in today's officiating compared to the 1990s and earlier - who turned into a pro bowl QB.

When the Jets and Cubs both make the playoffs this year, boy, will our faces be red.


Yeah unexpected playoff teams are such a rare occurrence in modern sports.

Just because Rex knows how to defend against offense doesn't mean he knows offensive talent. He knows offensive schemes, not who makes a good QB prospect. In fact Rex pumps all of his players. Remember him saying the Ghost was going to be a great player. That's why you have to take anything he says about talent with a grain of salt. Also, anyone with half a brain knows that Sanchez needs to win his job against legit competition. That doesn't mean Rex thinks Sanchez is worthless as you put it. Also, I can't speak for others but I'm not wishing for the impossible. I'm simply stating that we should get what we can out of him while we're paying for him anyway. If he turns the corner even better, but why not give him the chance since the money is spent?

 

Glad to hear you know this. Can you give me the powerball numbers? Yes, it's not likely but never say never.

 

Cutting a player or similar move can also be done in 2014 to deal with the 5 mil that you are so up in arms about that you're proposing in 2013 with Pouha, except there will be a lot more cap room to operate with than in 2013.
