    What is Macc's Plan as General Manager of the Jets?

    I see evidence that he's meddling. Chris Johnson literally said that drafting Sam Darnold was the turning point of this franchise becoming a great team, and that's BEFORE this kid even stepped on and NFL field. http://www.nj.com/jets/index.ssf/2018/05/christopher_johnson_says_sam_darnold_will_be_turni.html Now, I have no problem with the confidence, but knowing Jets fans I guarantee that if Darnold doesn't work out Jets fans will then use articles like this to show how Macc had his hands tied and was forced to take a QB/Darnold no matter what. Not a Knock on Darnold, just stating how based on what Chris has been saying it atleast comes off as if he's more hands on. Which, imo I think he would be. He's the younger brother of Woody who's been running this franchise into the ground and it would be awesome that by the time Woody is finished working for The Donald, he's made the Jets into legit contenders. Those are the type of digs you want to have over your siblings. Doing in a couple years what Woody couldnt do in almost 2 decades.

    I agree. Also, even if they simply thought that based on BAP Williams was the better player, when does it occur to them that when using that method you still have to reflect back to your current roster? If the Jets are picking at 6 and we feel like Leo is a top 5 talent and Beasley is a top 10 talent, then I would personally look at the roster and say "On the Dline we have Richardson, Wilk and Harrison. At OLB we have Calvin Pace and a bust in Quinton Coples. Both are top 10 players, Leo is ranked slightly higher, but we're already stacked at that position, meanwhile Beasley was ranked slightly lower, but we have literally NOTHING at that position in respects to a pass rush". This is how you can do BAP and still handle needs as well.

    I agree with this, I think he has made MANY free agent and draft decisions that was to provide Bowles with what he felt he needed. However, it does get to a point where he also has to flesh out the rest of the team. In 2015, We had Snacks, Wilk and Richardson on our defensive line, no matter the specifics, the fact is we had a pro bowler, a ROTY and arguably the best NT in the league. Now I know that Macc is huge on BAP, but man, was Leonard Williams that much better than Vic Beasley? And when I ask that, I ask the the point being that we have a stacked Oline, depth (Douzable etc.) yet we haven't had a pass rusher in a decade, especially with that first step. Now, say if Bowles really wanted Williams, would it have been hard for Macc to say "Look, I just got you Revis, Skrine etc. You have a stacked that can handle the run, now it's time to get a pass rusher that we won't have to pay for for the next 4 to 5 years playing behind collectively a top defensive front". Instead Macc goes BAP and gets a guy in Williams who's been a great Jet, but we literally had other holes that were weak enough to where we could pass on taking the top DT/DE/BAP and take the top Pass rusher, a position we still haven't filled, meanwhile Beasley has 25 sacks in his first 3 seasons. It gets to the point where Macc has a job to do, and he cant pass that off on trying to get Bowles what he wants. Especially when it seems like Bowles didn't want a guy like Hackenberg given how he stayed away from putting him on the field as if it was the plague.

    And this is my point. How many years do we blame Sheldon, Wilk and the prior regime? Every year a GM gets the opportunity to bring 90 guys into the building and cut them down to 53. Macc is now doing this for a 4th time. We should not be talking about players he picked up.

    Moving up in the draft is great, however, providing talent around that guy is key, especially when you gave up three 2nd round picks just to move up 3 spots. That's my point. The job isnt finished. It's more to a football team than trading up. We did that with Petty and Hackenberg, and that didn't end well, and even if they were good QB's they need a running game and an offensive line to protect them. Im satisfied with our WR situation. No superstars, but guys who if put in the right situation with the right QB can produce. I want to start seeing the strategy now though, it's year 4.

    What is Macc's Plan as General Manager of the Jets?

    I never once said that development of players is the sole responsibility of the GM. However, to provide you with an example, when we see how poor our Oline can be from starters, or when starters go down, I wonder what our GM's plan is when it's his job to put together player personnel. What positions does he hold in high regard, what does he think is important to building a football team to win a championship. When I see a guy draft young QB's but provides nothing to the offensive line or to the rushing game then I have to look at Macc when I come to the conclusion that he's not providing anything for the coaches to develop. I dont see anything consistent with him outside of investing in the D-line and the secondary. Yet even with those positions it's not like we're shut down there, though it would be safe to say that Macc in his years here has put in enormous resources to those positions via the draft or Free agency. Outside of that it seems the rest of what makes up a football team is pretty much a crap shoot. I'll give him credit for moving up to draft Darnold. I honestly do believe that Darnold's potential is MUCH higher than Petty and Hack, but his RT is Shell, is center is some Jag, his LT is an injury away etc. His best Lineman are the guards and they're middle of the pack/average-to-good players. And by the way, we have zero depth at the Oline. That's not a great combination when you mix that with the fact that Darnold fumbles alot. Not knocking the player, but simply criticising the GM and his player personnel decisions. How is he building this team? It seems like all we give a crap about is Lineman and secondary players and a young QB that can keep the fanbase quiet living off of potential. That's not how you build a football team.

    Is there anything that we can point to in regards to on the field, meaning developing positions, depth at positions etc? This is his 4th year as GM, it has to be more than releasing players you inherited. Look at Jon Gruden. Dude went to the Raiders and began cleaning out players he didn't want, and did it before hitting OTA's. He went as far as cutting the clear-cut best Punter in the league, because he's a Jokester.

    lol. Dude has been great at rebuilding every year....I'll give him that!

    What is Macc's Plan as General Manager of the Jets?

    It probably wouldn't, but since he drafted the Bryce Petty's and Christian Hackenberg's of the world...hence the question. And to continue to poke at your Baker hatred, I spoke to @Patriot Killa about a week or two ago stating that I purchased a few new Jerseys. Here they are.

    lmao! Exactly!
  13. I sat down today and watched a video that will be linked below of Howie Roseman and his plan to make the Eagles a successful franchise. What I watched left me with the same feeling that I had towards the end of this season of replacing Mike Maccagnan, not just because of our record, but because I have no idea the direction of this team. This won't be a thread requesting him to be fired, but more of an opportunity to ask and see if any of you have recognized this plan of Mike Maccagnan's and can you give a general breakdown of it. Because outside "trying to find value" I cant point to anything specific and say "That's part of Mike's plan to build the Jets into a Champion". And as a side note, Howie Roseman a GM that believes in and uses analytics to build his roster. Below is the video that I seen. What do you think is Maccagnans plan outside of dumping the entire franchise on the shoulders of Sam Darnold?

    NY Jets Trade Christian Hackenberg

    I absolutely agree. Macc made that mistake and we all knew it when it made the pick. I also agree that this is the best QB situation I've seen in a long time, which is unfortunate because it's all because of Bridgewater. If he isnt able to play then essentially all we have is McCown and a rookie qb. If Bridgewater can contribute then having McCown as the #2 would put the Jets as having one of the best #2 QBs in the league and Sam at #3 means that he can just hide for a season and prepare to compete with Bridgewater for the starting job next season. We have to remember that Bridgewater is also a young qb. If he pans out he's also franchise qb quality. I wouldn't be so quick to just up his stock and then try to trade him.

    NY Jets Trade Christian Hackenberg

    That wouldnt be Jetsy at all. I dont know of any part of Jets history that would come close to that scenario. Hackenberg is and has always been trash. It was a terrible pick from the start. Penn St. got better when Hack left and I feel that will be the same with the Jets.
