  1. (assuming Revis is worth ~two wins)

    It's hard to figure out what a player is worth in terms of marginal wins, but not so hard that it can't be said with mortal certainty that Revis is not worth anywhere close to two wins.

  2. This prospect leaves us with nothing for a valuable commodity is why it terrifies everyone.

    Revis is not the commodity. The commodity is the exclusive right to give Revis a hundred million dollars to lock him up before he can test free agency. It's not a subtle distinction.

  3. If that's the plan - to do nothing with regards to Revis past the immediate season

    I don't understand why this prospect so terrifies everyone. Even if you assume we have to keep him the odds are pretty good that we get a better deal by letting him hit free agency than by letting him make the market again. Nothing good is going to happen fast because Revis is counting on the Jets to panic.

  4. Did you feel the same after watching the Bama tape against Fluker or the Texas A&M tape against Matthews?


    Two NFL caliber RT that completely shut him down.

    Isn't the ability to shut down an NFL-caliber pass rusher sort of what makes an NFL-caliber tackle an NFL-caliber tackle? In any event I don't think Mingo was dominated by either of those players.

    Like Mingo but he's statistically bad and watching the tape you don't see much production. Those who aren't elite pass rusher statistically in college very rarely become so in the NFL.

    29 TFL 15 sacks 11 PD 4 FF in the SEC is statistically bad?


    The New York Jets are widely believed to be a losing franchise. As of January 12th 2013, It's been 44 years since the Jets have won a superbowl. There have been many ups and a lot more downs since that ground breaking and league changing championship in 1969. Throughout the 70's and much of the 80's, The Jets became an irrelevant franchise. Very few winning seasons or playoff seasons over the course of two decades. There were slight hiccups along the way where the Jets made an impact and went on runs towards a championship(1982) but there was a lot more losing than winning in those two decades.

    The 90's saw the Jets start off somewhat promising only to fall badly and become a laughingstock by the time 1996 finished. It wasn't until Bill Parcells arrived in 1997, That the Jets would change course and change their culture and become a contender. Since 1997, The Jets have been a respectable and contending franchise.

    I got to here.

  6. He's only a little over a year older than Abraham was

    The Falcons got Abraham for his entire second contract. Cromartie is only locked up for two years. This is boring.

  7. What was Cromartie's original trade value? Were the Jets bamboozled into giving up a second?

    What does a horseshoe do? Are there any horse socks? Is anybody listening to me? That Cromartie isn't worth a first rounder now doesn't mean he wasn't worth a second when he was three years younger and making relative peanuts.

  8. Vontae Davis went for a second less than a year ago without ever posting a top 20 season as a CB. Cromartie's now got two-three seasons as a top 10 with ~1.5 as a top 5 guy.

    Cromartie is four years older than Davis and makes ten times as much. Do you want to go back to the kids' table and argue about playcalling? Is that what you want?

  9. A #1 CB is worth a first round pick easy, and Cromartie is locked up into a fair price. Packers have a weak secondary, he's still young, and the CB class is pretty mediocre. I don't think it would break any pretend rules they have, but projecting trades always sucks.

    It doesn't matter that there is zero factual support for what you claim is the going rate, because you can just say it's worth it, easy. It doesn't matter that Green Bay hasn't traded a first round pick since probably Favre, because you can just call it a pretend rule. I guess you win.

  10. Cromartie to the Packers for pick 23 and their third.

    The Packers don't do stuff like that, Cromartie is not returning a first and a third in your wildest dreams, and we don't want to trade Cromartie anyway. The pass defense is the only thing we have to rebuild on. Why do you think we're taking an end in the first round when the offense is a dumpster fire?

  11. Scouts dont pick the players. How good the scouts are for any team is almost impossible to determine if you are a fan.

    Yeah. How much of anything is anybody's fault is almost impossible to determine based on the information available to an average fan. One thing that's easy is that overall responsibility for organization and communication falls on the GM (unless we're talking about New England, obviously). We've had the same scouting department for twelve years. If this were as simple as we keep asking for a hammer and they keep bringing us a wrench somebody would have figured it out a while ago.
