  1. Building, Developing & Managing a strong staff is by far the most important. As a manager of any business you don't have to be the most knowledgeable person at the job. It's ok to have ppl under you who knows more, however you have to be the glue to keep everyone together and know how to handle ppl. You're going to have weaknesses and with a strong and good staff the person under you can compensate where you lack at. As there soo many components to be either a good or bad GM.

    Bad start for gase, SOJ (merged)

    So a JAG coach fired from MIA, got our incompetent GM (who happened to hire him) fired not because of his diseterious tenure so far but because they disagree on players for a couple weeks. God help this franchise.
  5. I'm not even this dum or over confident to come on a Jets board and start this trolling thread like this guy did. Shame on everyone to have this go past 15 post.
  6. Sam is fortunate after looking at the core group the other young QBs have to target in the division. So guys, it could be worse.
  7. No one can answer that at the moment. It all depends on what our new GM is 2020 does.

    Draft Trade Rumors

    I hope we trade with the Skins. 1st rounder (15th overall), 2nd rounder, 2020 2nd, 3rd and Payne (NT). At 15 we can target Burns (LB), Taylor (LT), Bradbury (C), Ferrell (LB)
  9. Mac with more picks would be a nightmare. Hopefully he lands a DUI Thursday morning and can't post bail til Saturday night. That's the only way we can look forward to having more picks.

    Can the Jets afford this guy? Yes we have cap space however we have been amongst the top 5 cash spending teams the past 5 year thanks to our great GM. Chief traded Ford for a future 2nd rounder so no way are they going to get a current 1st. Probably lucky to receive present 2nd rounder. So I find it mind blowing that many in this thread are on board with some sort of first round swap.

  13. Jets linebacker Brandon Copeland shares his playbook for defending your wealth 3 Hours Ago | 03:25 When it comes to making plays, NFL linebacker Brandon Copeland is no stranger to risky moves. Since graduating from the University of Pennsylvania in 2013, Copeland has gained notoriety with the Detroit Lions and the New York Jets, where he recently re-signed for the upcoming season. Off the field, he plays it very safe. "I came out of Penn and I was signed to a one-year, $1.2 million contract," said the 27-year-old Copeland. However, following a severe injury, "I probably really only saw maybe $25,000 to $35,000 of those dollars before being released by the team." Since then, Copeland says he's learned to live on less. In fact, he said, he spends only about 10% to 15% of his income. "I'm not too flashy; I don't need a lot." "I realized that I have it backwards," he said of his early days in the league. "I need to be maximizing every single day I have in the NFL because I don't know when this NFL platform will be swept right under my feet." For others — whether they're professional athletes or not — he advises shooting to save at least half of your salary, far more than even most financial advisors suggest is feasible. (One popular guideline among experts is to spend half of your take home pay on necessities, put 20% toward savings and leave 30% for discretionary spending, otherwise known as the "50-30-20 rule.") Ultimately, being able to cut your expenses will help you save money so that you can have a nice nest egg," Copeland said. To achieve such a goal, he said, his competitive mindset helps. "If you just challenge yourself, you'll be surprised at what you can accomplish." "The biggest money lesson I've learned is basically don't try to keep up with the Joneses," he said. "If that's not something of value to you, then don't chase it." That mentality is what sets him (far) apart from his peers. In fact, nearly 80% of retired players go broke in their first two years out of the league, according to Sports Illustrated. Now he's sharing his conservative approachwith students, too. This offseason, he returned to his alma mater to teach a class on financial literacy, which he's nicknamed "Life 101."

This offseason, he returned to his alma mater to teach a class on financial literacy, which he's nicknamed "Life 101." Brandon Copeland speaks to students about financial literacy. Along with professor Brian Peterson, Copeland starts with the basics: budgeting and living within your means, good debt versus bad debt, whether it makes sense to rent or buy, how to save for retirement, and the value of compound interest. "You need to attack your financial health, your financial well-being and get to work on creating a better future for yourself."-Brandon Copeland, NFL linebacker "We need to pull the curtain back," he said. "You need to attack your financial health, your financial well-being and get to work on creating a better future for yourself." He credits football for providing a platform that will get kids to listen and he hopes that the 30 undergrads in his class at Penn will go on to use these lessons in the real world. "My goal is for the kids to understand how to apply the concepts," said Copeland, a member of the CNBC Invest in You Financial Wellness Council. "I care about the application rather than you just being able to give me the textbook definition." Indeed, students who are required to take personal finance courses have better average credit scores and lower debt delinquency ratesas young adults, according to data from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority's Investor Education Foundation, which seeks to promote financial literacy.

    Pats, Giants, Chargers in on Rosen (Go Chargers?)

    AFC East Rivals, Bills the odd man out?

    Josh Allen and Sam Darnold are going to give us some prime time divisional Bills vs Jets game within two years. Most likely a Gronk-less Brady will hang it up by then.
