  1. There are NO good rational reasons the Jets should keep Darnold. They shouldn't from a football perspective, nor should they from a financial perspective. It is too risky, and the possible return. The only reason that some would want to is sentimentality/emotion. IMO anyone who thinks he could magically turn it around this year is kidding themselves and not being realistic at all.
  2. In a nutshell, your response is what's wrong with Jets boards. You think you are reading between the lines of what I said, use hyperbole and go way beyond what I said/meant. It's sad and pathetic that some of you guys are so insecure and have such small dicks, that you have to act like a dick on a Jets' discussion list to try to compensate. For the record, I wasn't using them as "proof" of anything, just an example that there are trade-offs or consequences. The way the NFL is set up now teams can't stay dominant for a long period of time. Due to the cap and draft position, there is a
  3. Again, we're in total agreement on #1. Yes, the Jags and Raiders probably do have to overpay to get FAs, just as the Jets once did (see Calvin Pace and others). The Jets now are different. If things had gone South this year, then we might have been back in the same boat as those two teams, but thank God we're not. I didn't say that Idzik is stupid. I like him. I was just citing the Jets as an example of what can happen. While I like most of the moves of Idzik so far, and he seems too "grown up," intelligent, experienced in the ways of the NFL, etc. to make a dumb decision like that
  4. Good point. I'm hoping that Idzik, Rex and the Jets' future will enable you to post a picture with your head up as your avatar.
  5. You're probably right, and considering the Jets' history, it's totally understandable and reasonable.
  6. Thanks. I understand where you're coming from, and in general agree with that approach. It's just that Johnson is such a special player and he could speed the timetable up for the Jets significantly and be huge in helping Geno develop. The thing is that with drafted WRs, it's not at all uncommon for them to take at least a year, if not 2-3 years to develop fully. Think of what it would be like if the Jets signed Johnson AND traded up or somehow got an elite WR in the draft. Think of what that player could learn from Johnson, and with Johnson at #1, that other player wouldn't have the pres
  7. We're in total agreement on your first two points. My opinion has recently changed on #1. At the beginning of this season, I thought he probably should be fired. Even so, I don't think he should get a long extension unless the Jets do somehow not only make the playoffs, but win a couple of playoff games. I'm not sure if #3 is valid on either of your first two points. Many, perhaps most, players go where they're offered the most money, period. Precious few players will go someplace for less because they like the HC or think they'll have a chance to win the SB. I totally agree with you
  8. Perhaps we do. I want the Jets to win a SB...nothing else really matters to me. Slight improvements, in all likelihood, won't lead to a SB victory. I don't care about just being competitive. They play the game to win the SB, not to just try to squeak into the playoffs and hope they get lucky/hot. I find it hard to believe that any fan would rather squeak into the playoffs and hope they get lucky/hot and win rather than have a much greater chance/likelihood of not only making the playoffs, but going deep into the playoffs just a year later. That type of logic doesn't make any sense to
  9. How are the two teams you cite, Baltimore and PIttsburgh doing this year, and why are they doing so poorly? They have major holes in their rosters and key positions because they have done so well for so long and missed out on players. I could be mistaken, but I don't think they've drafted a lot of busts. Yes, talent can be found in all rounds and even as UDFAs and high picks do bust, but the chances of finding the right players are much better drafting high than drafting lower. Teams have a lot more players to choose from. I think that's one reason why some teams wind up reaching or pa
  10. I probably would have, because we all knew that the team was severely flawed and we saw what happened when Tanny went "all in" to try to win. I'm not saying that by this signing that Idzik went "all in", but as I said earlier I'm just worried that this might cause them to miss out on the WR we all want in the draft. Yes, it's possible the Jets could win the SB, but about as likely as my being able to make love to any one of a myriad of beautiful models or actresses tonight. I understand and respect your position, and when I was younger, would probably have thought the same way myself.
  11. We've already seen that unless the available FAs at WR and TE don't change dramatically that there are no real difference makers there that the Jets are probably able to sign. You won't care if making the playoffs prevents the Jets from being able to upgrade the WR or TE positions? Even if the team doesn't make the playoffs, it still has been a very successful season. It won't take away one bit from the accomplishments that Rex and the team have earned. Obviously, I have nothing against the Jets making the playoffs. It will be fun and exciting if they do. I just don't want that to
  12. Do you seriously think the Jets have a realistic chance to win the SB this year? I don't. I don't think they have a snowball's chance in hell of even getting to the AFC Championship Game, much less to or winning the SB this year. Their OLBs stink. Their WRs and TEs are below average. Their CB play has been pretty dreadful. Even with Reed, their Safety play will still probably be below average. Geno hasn't shown that he can cut down on the TOs. Rex hasn't shown that he won't go into an ultra-conservative "Ground and Pound" mode to play it safe the rest of the season. If he does, they w
  13. I'm curious why you wouldn't want Andre Johnson. Great player. Great character and citizen. Still young enough that he could play 4-5 more years. He could help the Jets win a SB or two in that time. It is looking like the chances for the Jets to get a great WR prospect in next year's draft are fading rapidly. Do you really want to go into 2014 with the same WRs as this year (less Holmes)?
  14. Why the hyperbole? The playoffs is exciting, sure, but it's short term gratification, because there's little possibility that they would play more than one game and then be out. If you knew for certain that the Jets would make the playoffs and then be one and done, and as a result, know for certain that they would not get a stud WR or TE in next year's draft, and the FAs that are listed now don't change, would you do it? I wouldn't. Of course there are no certainties, but the odds would definitely be against the Jets getting a topflight WR or TE prospect in next year's draft if they make t
