I wanted the best Jets safety since Victor Green to continue being a Jet. we could call it overpaying or we could just call it paying. talent costs money and so far Idzik has proven excellent at filling roster spots cheaply. Whether it's a good thing or not I guess we can wait and see. My point here was to rebutt the idea that replacing Laron with Dewan was some sort of genius move. 


It's way too early to draw any conclusions about Idzik. The man is shackled this year. Whether it's to Rex, or Sanchez, or the Revis issue, or the cap in general, the man is bound. There's not a lot he can do other than inexpensive, short term moves.

We'll start to get a feel for him during the draft. That's when he'll be making his first long term moves. But really, the picture won't start coming into focus until the season is over. By then, the Revis issue should be long resolved. And that's when he'll be free of Sanchez, free to do what he wants with Rex, and will have freedom to make a lot of moves within the cap.

im all for improving the team but let's get real, Tanny's signing of Laron last year on a show me deal was a great move. Laron made the pro bowl. Dewan is JAG. 

 

 

Great move for Laron.  Probably cost us a couple draft spaces.

anyone care to watch Dewan Landry's NFL caliber speed and quickness on display? 

 

warning do not watch this if you are eating

It's good that they saved so much cap room by not signing Laron Landry. So they could sign Peterman, Garrard, Goodson, Braylon etc. 

 

This is like when ya ask your mom for a real jersey and get 10 fakes instead. It's a false economy.

You're ridiculous.  We didn't fail to sign Landry so that we could get those players you listed.  We failed to sign Laron because we couldn't afford him, period.  

 

When Laron is being taken off in a cart this year you'll understand.

 

Either way, your "I told you so" BS is getting reeeeeal old.  If its so clear you're smarter than John Idzik maybe spend a little less time around here and more time crafting your resume.

this entire board could have done a better job signing free agents. Even you 80.

 

but don't worry we can revisit this argument after Kellen Winslow and Willie Colon play 16 games. (Combined?)

Didn't you hear? We need to cut everyone before we can compete. Everyone in the NFL is doing it this way now. Just look at the Ravens, 49ers, Pats, and Pitt. Maybe if the Jets go 1-15 they can draft Lebron James. It only takes one player to turn an NFL franchise around, havent you heard?

Lulza good try.  You're doing god work but this is a stretch.  The angle was terrible but he was coming from across the field chasing a faster player.  He was a step behind just like everyone else but  he never broke stride.  lulza

Dude, again with this?  Your resentment boner for Idzik is weird.  I'm not at all sold on him, but that is only because he hasn't made a move that wasn't screamingly obvious.  I don't understand what the problem with signing bargain basement free agent veterans is, especially when the cap situation dictates that doing so is the only option.
