I don't think we can lay all the blame at Maccagnan's and Bowles's feet until we relitigate the Steve Gutman Era.

Parcells brought in a lot of free agents that helped.

Parcells walked into a very talented young team.  The team was just poorly coached, BP is an all time great HC.  many of the same players that were 1-15 in 1996 were 9-7 in 1997.

it's not just that Idzik's drafts were bad but he built up for that one huge draft and did a horrendous job that set the franchise back a few years.  we had a one year blip w/ FA when we had to spend but Macc deserves time to rebuild the right way.

Parcells took over the best 1-15 team in history, and Rex took over the worst 9-7 team in history, and Maccagnan inherited $60 mil in cap space, but it was a cheap $60 mil.

2012 draft: 

Quinton Coples

Stephen Hill

Demario Davis

Josh Bush

Terrance Ganaway

Robert Griffin

Antonio Allen

Jordan White

Bad drafts don't necessarily end a team's chances at being competitive.  The Pats have had a few clunkers too.  It's bad management that sinks a football team.  Idzik was better than Mac in this regard by leaps and bounds.

If Winters isn't a real starter, how come our fancy smarty pants player personnel side GM just gave him $8M per?

my mistake, I missed Winters.

Leo is a very good player but Idzik drafted Enunwa in the late rounds and he is just as valuable 

I love Quincy but that draft produced the following WRs: Odell Beckham, Sammy Watkins, Mike Evans, Brandin Cooks, Davante Adams, Kelvin Benjamin, Jordan Matthews, Davante Adams, Allen Robinson, Jarvis Landry, Donte Moncrief, Martavis Bryant while we drafted WRs Jalen Saunders, Shaq evans and later Enunway.

Best draft pick since Revis?  Sheldon Richardson and Mo Wilkerson are just as talented and play the same position and were also first round picks

 

Probably the best young player we got since Revis who was either a draft pick or rookie UFA was Snacks Harrison aka the NFL's best run defender

 

 

But I digress to my original point.  All of Macagnan's draft picks besides Leo in 2015 and 2016 have been garbage yet somehow he is "astronmically better at drafting"

Williams isn't the off field distraction that Sheldon is and he doesn't take plays off like Mo.

 

Again, Macc's drafts have only seen 1 class w/ more than 1 season.  how can they be garbage? and you can;'t forget all the picks Idzik had in a talent rich 2014 draft.  he stockpiled picks and had one of the worst drafts in team history.

idzilk was better than Mac in what regard?

and yeah NE has had clunkers but they have Tom Brady.  the 2014 draft would cripple any franchise as Idzik refused to spend on FAs and allowed others to leave to stockpile picks then he had one of the worst drafts in history in one of the deepest drafts of modern times.

Come one now... Ya'll play nice.

some of the talent BP inherited:

 

Keyshawn Johnson

Wayne Cherebet

Adrian Murrell

Kyle Brady

Jeff Graham

Jumbo Elliot

Matt O'Dwyer

hugh Douglas

Mo Lewis

Marvin Jones

Aaron Glenn

Marcus Coleman

Ray Mickens

Richie Anderson

Chad Cascadden

Bobby Hamilton

 

that's a damn good base of talent to work with.  He also inherited the #1 OVERALL pick and #1 pick in each round which, of course, he screwed up.

Management.  He refused to sign FA's to stockpile picks.  He accumulated $60 mil. in cap space.  Basically, under Idzik, the team was in a similar situation as it is now except now we don't have much cap space and don't have any extra draft picks.  So, yea, Idzik was a better manager.

ok.  I can agree w/. that.  I liked his approach, it was his execution that was lacking but to be fair to Macc he had to spend when he took over.

I'm comparing Idzik's two drafts to Mac's first two drafts.  Where is the huge disparity in talent that Mac has gotten us?

 

Idzik: Sheldon, Enunwa, Winters

Mac: Leo, Anderson (UFA)

 

The rest of the players are either JAGs or Duds

again, Idzik put all his energy into the 2014 draft and had the worst draft maybe we have ever had considering all the picks and the talent available.

Macc's drafts are mostly TBD at this point but he drafted the best player out of any of their drafts,

it's not just the draft itslef, he didn't go after FAs and allowed our guys to leave to stockpile picks for that draft and he botched it in spectacular fashion setting the franchise back so now we didn't have a lot of talent, had to overspend in FA in Macc's 1st year and blew double digit draft picks.  it was a disaster, if Macc's drafts did turn out to be bad(still too early) he only had 5-6 picks and didn't spend all his energy in those drafts like Idzik did.  Idzik sabotaged Rex and destroyed our franchise short term.

Oh okay so if you do an energy equation and multiply the coefficient of the enthusiasm for when Idzik drafted and subtract that by the derivative of Mac drafting Devin Smith, Lorenzen Mauldin and Bryce Petty you get Chris Hackenberg's rookie season wearing pajamas

You act like Mac played this shrewd game in free agency With the evil genius plan:

-- gave Mo, a 3-4 D-line player a $100 million deal

-- gave Revis an insane contract

--gave Fitz $13 mil guaranteed after bidding against himself

--signs Forte to a dumb contract with lots of guaranteed $ again bidding against himself

--signs McCown to $6 mil plus another $3 mil in incentives while bidding against himself

--tries to trade Decker after announcing he is cutting him

--Second highest dead cap room in the NFL 

 

Wow that's the art of the deal right there folks

not one contract was a bad one. they had to spend big year 1 by rule but that wasn't his long term plan.  he spent to allow them to compete short term while trying to bring in young talent for the long term.  he's done a good job bringing in some talent so far.  we'll see what happens over the next few years.

Who was sabotaging Rex before Idzik got here?

Why did Maccagnan have to "overspend in FA"?  Is there a reason he couldn't obtain more/better/younger players?  Is there a reason why Carpenter is the only acquisition we made that offseason that we don't wish was gone now?  Did Idzik leaving him cap space somehow force him to choose poorly?

Yeah, but Mac didn't put his energy into drafting Devin Smith.

No, I'm not arguing that at all. The hilarious part to me was @T0mshane making like a WWF wrestler who's in the center of the ring when all hell breaks loose and he's taking on all comers sliding under the ropes into the ring from every angle.

But that also goes to show you how thin the line is between "talented" & "untalented." The main difference is that many of those same guys were out of shape and too fat to play under Kotite. The poster boy for how out of shape the '95-'96 Jets were was none other than Jet great Mo Lewis himself, if I recall correctly. But 1-15, the perception is "wow what a sorry untalented bunch." Then at 9-7, they became perceived as a team with "talent." They did play like untalented bums under Kotite, though.

we had to spend that offseason, where were the good, low cost buys he should have loaded up on?  in FA you usually overpay and he had to spend a boatload b/c we hadn't spent in years.  again, he went w/ the short term FA approach to try to compete while still rebuilding.  it worked year 1, it didn't year 2.  the biggest mistake was hiring the HC.

absolutely, BP knew how to motivate and get players ready to play.  no one is better at the quick turnaround than BP.  we had a lot of talent but talent that was underachieving.  if we didn't have talent there's no way BP comes here, he thought he could win fast w/ us and get out which was why he wanted no part of a rookie #1 pick in 1997 and didn't commit to Peyton.

Parcells got rid of Farrior and Hugh Douglas, which in retrospect was probably a poor decision. Rehashing 20 years ago because of the current state of the team is as Jets as it gets though.

Market price does not mean "overpay."  Could he have signed any free agents under 30?  How are any of these guys long-term solutions?  Revis, Harris, Forte, Marshall, Fitzpatrick, or Clady?  Even the lower level guys he signed were fairly old - Erin Henderson, McClendon, Kellen Davis.  What problem did these players solve? Who the **** did he sign under 30?  Skrine, Gilchrist and Carpenter?

This is running a team, not taking a trig mid-term.  It didn't "work" in 2015.  Yay! Hurray, we got an 85, but we were in a worse position for 2016, and we are in horrific position for 2017. No QB, no LT, no edge rusher, and sketchy at WR. Our CB1 has missed at least 1/4 season since 2012, but he is a FA in 2018 anyway. Where are the long term solutions?  Safety, DE and ILB?  We were stacked at DE when they got here.

Parcells didn't get rid of Farrior.  He played him and prayed that he would turn into LT@ 3-4 OLB. Farrior was with the Jets right until Herm used him in the Cover Who when he finally had a  decent year in 2001.  Then he signed with Pittsburgh.
