Interestingly enough, Decker reminds me a lot of Jordy Nelson.  Cant put my finger on why...

Gritty, smart, heady,...break out the White Guy adjectives.

Racist.

 

I'm not denying it.  I hate white people.

Exactly. They didn't even entertain resigning Jennings after what he wanted, I highly doubt they'll pony up the money for Decker. Besides, they already have a better version of Decker in Jordy, not sure their team needs any more grit.

Jennings was a douche who didn't like Rodgers, so that likely factored in. I know the Packers don't traditionally chase free agents, but it would make no sense not to go get Rodgers another target.

Decker is not even #1 on the Broncos....the JETS need to add a legit #1 WR.

 

I do not see any shortcuts here. There are not many in the FA market that can be legit #1's. There could be some calculated risk the JETS can take on with players coming from injury like Maclin. Decker might not be the answer. The JETS will have to draft WR's with their first few picks in this draft.

 

5 less catches that Thomas and 6 less targets. He could be a #1 receiver in the right offense. This one led by Geno Smith is not conducive to that.

I think Doug Baldwin is really the type of player the Jets need to be looking at.

 

I suspect Idzik will stay away from the top of the market and bring in two of the second/third tier type guys e.g. Danario Alexander, Brandon Lafell, Kenny Britt, Robert Meachem, Mario Manningham, Louis Murphy (Sanjay connection) etc. From what the Jets' FO has seen with Holmes and Idzik saw in Seattle with Sidney Rice, they may not be willing to dole out big contracts for some of these guys. (Sidney Rice will probably be cut, he's not a bad option to kick the tires on either).

 

 Personally, if we make a big splash in FA, I feel it'll be for someone like TJ Ward (if he's not franchised) or Jarius Byrd. I think a big time safety and a couple middle WRs would go a lot further than grabbing Decker.  Then again, I could totally be wrong, they sign Decker/Nicks and go after Clinton-Dix or Calvin Pryor in the first round.

Is Jordy Nelson prettier than his super pretty wife too?

By "right offense" you mean one with Manning, but without Demarius.

Not sure about all that, but I do agree... it makes no sense for the Packers, you see that have that rare combination of factors in place, 1.) they have a top 5 QB, and 2.) they know how to draft receivers and "develop" them.

They have Nelson, Cobb (who's gonna be a top 10 WR next year) and Boykins, I'd suspect they'd resign Jones, who's said he'd take a discount, and look to upgrade their tight end position.

He was better than Demarius without Manning and catching passes from Tebow. So, probably a little more than just Manning.

I think they like Quarless. He came on at the end of the season.

IMO Decker is a real shot due to his media whore driven wife. But he'll get overpaid as a #1 when he's really a solid #2.

If Decker is a top tem WR the past 2 years and also played well with Teblow at QB he is a number 1 WR maybe not of the elite status but hes certainly good enough to be a number 1 on more than half the teams in this league. What else would you propose at WR Hess ? You grab Decker or Graham if at all possible and draft a boat load of skill players which this team needed to do for a very long time. Our offensive skill positions have been neglected long enough

Was he? Or was Tebow just better at getting him the ball? Like, more chemistry. I mean, there's no question that Randy Moss was better than Welker, but Welker often out-produced him with the Patriots because of the chemistry with Brady.

 

Hard to say take player X from team A and plug him into team B and voila!

I guess i going beyond just the numbers. Who gives defensive coordinators more concerns. It has to be Demaryius not Decker when facing the Broncos. That's why Aqib Talib was matched up against him in Sunday's game.

 

Decker can be a good WR as you say in the right offense where there is another legit #1 threat.

True, but I'd say Decker is legit after catching a lot of passes from two different QB's.  Especially when the former was a lefty who couldn't football.

 

I just don't see why he'd come here when he could go play with Luck.  And I don't think he's worth WR1 money.  No one currently on the market really is.

That would be the worst career decision he'd ever make.

Byrd would be awesome. Orakpo could make some sense as well as a splashy FA move that fills a need. Idzik certainly has plenty of cap space to work with - though I think priority #1 should be getting Mo locked up.

 

I wouldn't be surprised if they signed a guy with injury questions (Nicks, Maclin) to a one year deal. Or if they can get Sanders or Tate to agree to a reasonable deal for WR2 money.

And why would he want to go from catching 80 balls from the best qb in the league to catching 40 balls from the worst qd in the league? Don't think any good wr would want to play with our qb.

New Jersey has pork roll - come on Eric

Pork roll?  PORK ROLL!  Either you, sir, are an impostor, or you are dumbing it down for the non-Jersey masses.

 

Taylor Ham.  I've never ordered a pork roll egg and cheese on a hard roll with salt-pepper-ketchup.

Nobody does grilled Pork Roll and Cheese sandwiches like "Joysey" Out here in Pa. deli cooks give me the blank stare like "WTF are you talking about?"

On Melrose avenue in LA a few years ago I ordered a Pork role egg and cheese sandwich after they had no idea what Taylor ham was.

When the waiter returned I was amazed to see a friggin pork chop (with the bone in)  on a bun with melted cheese on it.... I have to say it was pretty good though   :D
