  1. If you had told this forum in 2007 that we weren't going to draft Justin Blalock and that we were going to trade up instead there would have been mass suicides.
  2. I don't know what this means, but if it were true there would be more trades.
  3. Why do you think it's better for Te'o to be dumb enough to have fallen for this hoax than clever enough to nearly have gotten away with it?
  4. Cut E. Smith, J. Smith, Scott, Pace. Let Schilens, Moore, Keller, Greene, Devito, and Landry walk. Throw peanuts at Edwards, Slauson, Hilliard, Thomas, Bell, and Folk. Low tender all RFA except the long snapper.
  5. No...you're welcome? This really isn't hard. Yes, it would be nice not to have Sanchez count against the cap at all in future years, but this isn't happening in a vacuum. We still have to put together a roster with 17M dead and no quarterback, and that's going to screw with our cap in future years more than spreading out the hit will.
  6. Head coach distracts self with catchphrase, sits on franchise, breaks it. At least it's novel.
  7. Sperm already did. If he's a June 1 cut in 2014 he only counts 1.5M against the cap. Which in addition to the 5M you're going to eat on Sanchez to get him and the 12 we're on the hook for no matter what is 18M for Matt Moore. Now go get a halfback, two guards, a tight end, entire receiving and linebacker corps, and a safety. This isn't Major League.
  8. No. 5M spent this year is 1.5M more in cap room they'll have next year. We're letting five starters walk in free agency and cutting two more. Spending an extra five million dollars against the cap for Matt Moore or whoever seems exactly like the kind of thing you don't do in a rebuilding year. I guess it's counterintuitive since the overall plan is to burn everything down, but that doesn't mean that taking all of the pain right away is the right move in every individual case.
  9. An extra 5M this year for Sanchez not to play plus whatever the quarterback we don't really want costs is totally out of the question in the real world. Not with the cuts we're going to make and free agents we're going to let walk.
  10. The role of general manager will be played by my good friend Ben Gazzara.
  11. None of you want him gone now more than I did the day before we drafted him but you just can't take a 17M hit. The travesty ends 6/1/14. Party plans are in the offing.
  12. Cromartie's value isn't going to go anywhere but down, but that doesn't really mean it's high. He's a really good corner, but he's paid like one. Cromartie at 9.5 per is not worth a whole lot in terms of draft picks. I mean, it's not like we've got the option of trading him to the Jets.
  13. Mingo seems like he could be really good. OL in the second round is fine, and I even like Warford, but he's not one of the 40 best players in this draft. Maybe if Fluker gets pegged as a guard he could slide a little. I think anybody we take in the second would have to have some tackle upside even if his place for 2013 is at guard. Bray is out of the question. We don't have the resources to dick around with half measures at quarterback. It's Sanchez and that's that. What do you think of Sean Porter in 3? Safeties, Taylor, fine, whatever. Projecting these positions in these rounds without benefit of combine numbers is kind of pointless. Probably going to have to address TE sooner. And if course if we have the chance to take a flier on a BC OL in the seventh round we're going to windmill slam the card for Wetzel.
  14. Sherman had it coming. What a ****ing clown. Never seen a guy talk so much sh*t while getting beat. Besides DeAngelo Hall obviously.
  15. Why not? Schottenheimer at least is a blank slate. We already know that Rex is a complete idiot with regard to everything the HC job entails beyond being a good DC.
  16. I'm talking from an organizational perspective. It's just abject chaos. Nobody but Rex can be in charge, because after a disaster season where everybody else left, he got kept on. But Rex can't be in charge either because he got a vote of confidence and no extension. We're really not even talking about football here. This hierarchy couldn't effort a ham sandwich if the Jets were a Subway franchise instead.
  17. No. It's Rex's job to blow the smoke. It's the GM's job to make it happen with no infrastructure and no quarterback.
  18. Promote Cohen to burn it down. After a year he goes back to the nerdery and Rex hits the road. We can't find a GM because the opening we have isn't for a GM other than in title.
  19. Youtube cutups are basically useless but Mingo looks pretty fantastic. Of all the pass rushers in this year's class, he's the one that really stands out as being the first and fastest guy off the ball on a consistent snap-to-snap basis. He also makes a ton of plays when the ball goes the other way, and not just chasing them down from the backside. I've seen a couple of times on counters where he'd already be turning the corner in the backfield when the runner would cut the other way, and he'd double back around and take a perfect angle all the way across the field. Pretty scary sh*t from a guy who doesn't know how to play football yet. His frame presents a disadvantage in the combine metrics, so if he clears the benchmarks there I would be reasonably confident in this player at 9.
  20. Can't it be both? I mean, you have to be talking about a pretty severely talent deficient team to say that ten wins isn't even a realistic possibility. At the same time, we're screwed for the foreseeable future because the organization is just a total debacle.
