  1. Talking about taking an OT at #6 in the first round is not "sexy", but Brandon Scherff out of Iowa is very impressive. While at the gym I watched him play against Tenn: - He's as big as a barn - He has excellent feet - Good quickness to get to the 2nd & 3rd level - Good flexibility to bend and block speedy edge rushers - And maybe his most impressive trait was the nastiness he was playing with as his team was getting blown out. You couldn't tell what the score was with how hard he was playing If we took him I could see him playing guard until Brick's play declines. So far fro

  5. How about everyone sits down, shuts up and let a few NFL legends in Ron wolf and charley casserly help woody make an informed decision on who to hire. The Fire idzik thing was a bad enough disgrace let alone trying to stand up and tell woody that us fans know more than 2 NFL gms that have multiple super bowls in their back pockets. It is not time for a movement. Just let them do their jobs and try to trust the process for 5 minutes. On top of that just because the media claims Doug marrone is a shoe in doesn't even mean there's any reality behind it. We really have no idea what's going

  8. That's oldhead talk. since 2000 the Jets have had 5 picks in the top ten. Dwayne Robertson, Vernon Gholston, Mark Sanchez and Dee Milliner. The only other top ten pick we had was D'Brickashaw Ferguson. He's also the only one to ever make a probowl. If Scherff can play OT at a high level for many years, he's an awesome pick. If he can't cut it at OT and moves inside to Guard and plays at a high level there for many years, he still a great pick. Better than Robertson, Gholston Sanchez and Milliner anyway. Its a pick with little gamble and no real downside. For a team that has QB issues

  9. Normally I agree with nothing that the OP has to say, but in this instance I fully agree with him. Marrone is the definition of middle of the road mediocrity which probably means that he is a perfect fit for the Jets. This has Kotite 2 written all over it. If they hire this clown before hiring a GM, I will will write the Jets a nice letter on very official looking stationery demanding that my PSL be refunded due to to dysfunction and ineptitude. I know this won't happen, but I will be heard. This is a chance to try something new but instead we are looking to repeat past disasters. Only the fo

  10. Uh, we don't know if Marrone is a coach or not. He went 6-10, just like every other Bills coach, then brought in a former HC as his DC and went 9-7 based off the play of his defense. Quinn or Bowles appeal to me much more because I DON'T know exactly what I'm getting, philosophy wise. With Marrone, I'm getting an overly conservative "offensive" coach that has shown very little promise with the modern NFL offense. Enough rebuttals to this point claiming the Bills offense lacks sufficient talent. His offensive coordinator is the demon spawn of Paul Hackett. That should tell you all you need to

  13. Dumb thread. Marrone is not my first choice but I really don't get this outrage over hiring him you'd think we were hiring Jerry Sandusky to be the Head Coach. There are no great candidates out there, the Jet job is the least desirable job available and the talent we add to the roster this off-season is way more important than who the coach is.

  14. Unfortunately most people don't / won't think for themselves so they have their opinions formed by the media. What we are seeing with the whole "Marrone mania" is fascinating: - He opts out of his contract and his agent "leaks" the Jet rumor to Schefter to stir interest - From that point on there has been a split in the NY media on whether they like or hate him. On the "like" side is the Post, Cimini/ESPN, Schein and on the "hate" side is the Daily News, WFAN It's just shameful how the media makes themselves the story

  15. I don't know squat about OL play but I can say after watching the video that I'm impressed at how this guy plays until the whistle every play. He just kept on his man until the play was over. In many of those plays, he had already knocked his man down and just finished the play off by falling on them. Looked impressive to me. I think Slats makes a good point about a G at #6 but he eventually can replace D'Brick at LT so maybe it's a worthy investment? Or maybe we trade down a few spots and take him a few spots lower?

  16. I love the idea of going O-line with our first pick. But I'd move that big retard we signed from Seattle who's currently our starting RT to guard and put the top 10 draft pick at RT. Until Brick is gone. It's also less pressure for a rookie playing on the right

  17. Slats I agree with you with your opinion on guards, however the way I look at Scherff at #6 would be the following. Put him at RT and move Breno inside to RG. Once Bricks done then you transition him to LT. If I'm the Jets and Cooper and Mariota are gone by 6(they will be) the next thing I'd go for is the best O-lineman in the draft.

  18. With defenses trying to manufacture interior pressure these days, having sub-standard OG play is more noticeable than ever, and it kills drives. Employing penalty-prone lineman who penalize our offense into punting situations, doesn't work any more either. Last year, the #6 overall pick was Jake Matthews. He signed a four-year $16M contract, so I don't know where you're getting your FA contract numbers from.

  19. I am old. I hope the new GM doesn't draft a guard at #6 (and the last time a guard went that high, I was very, very young) just because the Jets have employed crappy GMs this millennium. Drafting a guard that high is dumb.

  21. Michael Kay today explained he grew up with Marrone, and then proceeded to say some things that he didn't say came from Marrone, but probably couldn't have come for anyone else. The Bills new ownership was negotiating with Marrone and his agent Sexton(also Ryan's) about the clause up until the deadline after the option clause was invoked, at which point the Bills apparently put out a press release and tweet saying Marrone was leaving. So there was nothing left to discuss. The Pegulas were probably shocked the Wilsons had stupidly given such a clause with a 90+ owner, but it's in black and

  31. Who is Worse? Jets fans or Jets beat writers? I think it's a toss up. I think both are happier when there's chaos. Jets fans, like reporters, will never be happy, will always complain, and will always prefer the 2nd string QB or some unknown coordinator somewhere. I'd be happy with Quinn, Marrone, or Bowles. And I'll take Wolfe's and Casserly's opinion over Manisih Mehta or some self hating fan on this site! Go Jets!

  35. I understand that sentiment. To be honest I don't care who we get to be GM. The key will be the head coach and the relationship between the coach and GM.

  37. I'm not saying a rookie selected there would make that money, but that a premium player drafted at #6 would be worth that or more. Guards don't make that kind of coin. I'm gonna draft a premium position at #6. If I can't get a QB, I'm looking pass rusher, wide receiver, left tackle. Not guard. Good guards can be had for $5M/year. QB/WR/LT/pass rusher? They don't spring available. And if they do, they cost a premium. You fill your guard need cheaply in free agency. You fill premium positions at #6.

  38. The 49ers sucked bad when green bay plucked mike mcCarthy to be their next head coach. I was perplexed by their selection as well as many others during that time and it worked out pretty good. Sometimes you have great guys that are part of a dysfunctional community that brings the whole operation down. And sometimes the best coordinators fail to transition into great head coaches like norv turner for instance. On the other hand mike Tomlin was a great coordinator for a crappyviking team that couldn't get over e hump and he became a pretty awesome head coach. You just have to wait and see w

  39. Half the coaches in the NFL probably could win with all that. I liked Rex to, but this team hasn't made the playoffs in four years, wasn't it against the Colts 12 years ago that we hosted a playoff game? I'd have a hard time bringing a coach back for a 7th season when that coach won zero championships, zero division titles, hosted zero home playoff games, let alone zero playoff appearances in the last four seasons all those years. And to top it off the team just became a bigger circus (not a good circus mind you, if there's such a thing lol) year after year. He had all that time to get
