I never said sign any of them I copied and pasted the bottom of a list off the internet. For the record.

Like when we added Braylon or Holmes.  

Sometimes you make some really good points.  Other times, like the above, you say some really thoughtless things.

The Jets were a relatively good team when they did that. Absolutely nothing to gain now by trading draft picks to add anyone to this abysmal roster.

This is ridiculous. Minus the Bears' castoff Wilson, our entire collective WR corps has 100 receptions, total... in their careers. I get the #1 pick quest, but we still have a responsibility to play pro-football for a season. GM still has to field a team.

I can't be the only one who feels we need to consider bringing in some long-in-talent types who've struggled elsewhere. At least kick the tires. 

We weren't fielding a team with or without Enunwa. The idea that this is the last straw is a lollercoaster.

For what exactly?!?!?!
What difference would some castoff retread FA make?  Or trading a needed draft pick commodity, even a 7th, for some below-average or mediocre veteran?  How does that help?
This is shaping up to be the worst Jet team in franchise history.  And that is the best thing that could happen to this franchise.  The timing is FINALLY advantageous for this downtrodden franchise to go 1-15, plenty of blue-chip QB prospects in play for 2018.

Has anyone pinned the blame for this squarely on John Idzik because he drafted Shaq Evans once?

But they made a difference, were WRs you can pick up late that can contribute.  Not talking about how good they will be just that given what we have at the position and that we might be playing a young QB a WR can help.

No that was his only good pick in a loaded draft with a 12 man class.

Yes.

Idzik, in his infinite wisdom and crusade to save money, downgraded Florham Park's water purification system, and now all the extra lead in the water has given everyone brain damage.

Thanks, Idzik.

Dude, that's a load of sh*t. Have you ever played organized sports before? Doesn't work like that. I understand the point you're trying to make, and within reason it's sensible. Underline within reason. We've crossed that threshold. What happens if all three junior quarterbacks decide to stay in school? There's a lot more moving parts here than your acknowledging.

If only Tannenbaum hadn't traded away all those mid-round picks to move up!

He's still unsigned?  Hey, why not bring him in for a look?

Unsigned Free Agent WR

 

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports free agent Percy Harvin is retiring "for real this time."
"He's done," Harvin's rep said. Harvin made it 23 days last season before his migraines returned. Harvin is a special talent whose body just won't cooperate. Stunningly, Harvin is still only 28 years old, but his career is all but over. Mar 14 - 5:38 PM

I showed up to this thread for that very point. Eveything is John Idzik's fault.

A monkey slinging it's poop at a Mel Kiper magazine would draft better than John Idzik

It took many years of environmental clean up to get the former Exxon property suitable for commercial development. The Jets were one of the 1st to build on the cleaned up toxic zone. Now there are office buildings going up all around there. BASF is there as well as many more. The land was contaminated by Exxon but purportedly, it's safe now. The most toxic things there now are the Jets roster, coaches and GM.

If the plan is to keep Petty and hack holding a clipboard while McCown stinks it up then McCagg should go to jail.

If the plan is to try to develop Hack or Petty without a decent left tackle and no experienced NFL wide outs to throw to then McCagg should just go to the nut house

Im appalled. I mean, we have 2 whole players left on our roster from 2013 and 2014 drafts. How many teams can say that? Most teams would hope to get lucky and have 1, but 2 from those drafts? Damn, Maccagnan really f'd up not having a super bowl roster given that gift he received.

This had to happen to prevent the Christmas Eve disaster.

As we watch Mariota kill our awesome defense this week remember, 1 game can change a teams fortunes for years

Serenity now

Just accept it

I couldn't have been more sarcastic about the defense part.

But yeah I don't see the point in spending anymore cap space on this wasted season.
