  1. Not saying it is, like I said Macc has done little to build a sustainable winner through the draft like he's preached since getting here. My point was that it's tough to just compare what the team looks like now vs. if we would've signed Cousins.
  2. Not that I'm defending Macc b/c I'm at this point I'm on the side of just cleaning house but I would have to think if we had gotten Cousins we would've approached the offseason much differently and been in a more win-now mode, once that plan failed it was all about drafting a QB and building for the future. At the end of the day though, it shouldn't excuse the complete lack of talent Macc has been unable to acquire in 4 years. No true #1 Wide Receiver, no edge rusher, a mediocre at best o-line, a mediocre at best secondary in which we overpaid for Trumaine Johnson. Regardless of
  3. I would put TE as low on the priority list, I think Hendon looks legit and Leggett has even showed promise. Neil Sterling could be that #3 if he can stay healthy but def. low on priority list IMO. I'm also intrigued by Nickerson as our nickel corner and would love to see him get some playing time down the stretch. Of course with Bowles knowing he's fired he'll try to get that extra win or two over playing the younger guys so I doubt we'll see him or Deontey Burnett or even more Rishard Matthews.
  4. I'm speaking more to the fact that our HC reports to the owner putting him and the GM on the same level. This organization needs to bring in a good football guy either at GM or above the GM and let him run the show. I'm not defending Macc but the way we're structured right now means Chris Johnson is our "football czar" c'mon. Either bring in a GM and let him run the show or put someone above the GM to run the show who isn't a Johnson.
  5. Yes but most of the other owners (at least the good ones) have competent GM's who run the football ops dept. Not a GM and HC who report to the owner which seems crazy, how would Woody or Chris know enough about football to decide on a disagreement between Bowles and Macc? Enough of these first time guys learning on the job it's time to get an experienced football guy in here either at GM or above the GM.
  6. It's a fair concern but that's why I think maybe more of that "football czar" role would be intriguing. Gets him out of the day to day of being a GM and is positioned as a promotion. I'm not saying he would def. take it, I obviously know nothing about the guy but I think it would be worth exploring. The Johnsons are not knowledgeable football guys and should not be running the football ops dept. It also puts them in a position to have to fire Macc, let Newsome or McKenzie decide. Not to mention, it probably gives us a lot more credibility in finding a new coach if they know the "football
  7. money speaks, give him enough money and he'll come work for us. If he doesn't want to be a GM, give him a Tom Coughlin type roll and let him pick the GM.
  8. I'd rather throw a blank check at Ozzie Newsome. I don't believe he's retiring I think the Ravens are forcing him out b/c they know they can't hold on to DeCosta much longer. McKenzie wouldn't be a bad second choice though. Bring in an experienced GM and HC duo, no more time to learn on the job.
  9. Its around $20mm for 2019 but he can be cut in 2020 for something like an $6mm hit I believe.
  10. Exactly my point, everyone seems to be getting too caught up in the name but we're not trading for him to be our savior and starting QB we'd essentially be trading $20m in cap space for picks and a backup QB. And given the fact we have $100mm in cap space this doesn't and shouldn't effect any of our free agent spending
  11. I saw this posted on twitter so I can't take credit for the idea but we obviously have a ton of cap space this off season and probably won't be able to spend it all wisely so why not make a similar trade that the Browns made with Osweiler and take that contract off their hands for possibly a 2nd and 6th rd pick? With all the cap space it should not hinder us for signing any of out targets and may even hinder us from making a bad shortsighted deal in an effort to spend money. And while Bortles is obviously not a starter in this league he would give us a decent option at backup, we don't need
  12. Harbaugh and Ozzie Newsome combo. I just posted this in another thread, I know he's supposedly "retiring" but I think a big part of that is promoting DeCosta before they lose him. Throw enough money at him and if he doesn't want to be GM make him VP of Football Ops and he hires the GM
  13. This may be out of left field but I wonder if there's any chance of nabbing Ozzie Newsome. I know he's "retiring" but a part of me thinks he's being kind of forced by the Ravens who know if they don't promote DeCosta soon they'll probably lose him. He's the type of guy that hasn't been mentioned but can really but that under the radar "football czar" we need. Let him hire the GM and coach, get things moving in the right direction for a few years and then if he wants ride off into the sunset. I'm sure we'd have to pay him a ton of money but a drastic move is needed to turn this thing arou
  14. I would be very interested in a guy like this who has been around the league for a while and has been working under a successful, well respected HC in Andy Reid. I'm not saying we should def. hire him but on the surface he seems like a better choice then say the next hot OC flavor of the month sure it worked for the Rams but no guarantees it will happen again. If you are hiring a ST coach though, one of the most important aspects is who will be his OC and even DC. You wonder about his connections around the league and who he would have lined up in those roles. Especially at OC with Darnold
  15. Remember our former running back's coach? Seems to be doing a pretty damn good job with the Chargers. An offensive minded coach who was right in our backyard and we let him get away. Just want to give props to a former Jets coach who's actually doing pretty well as an HC. Of course having Whisenhunt as his OC def. helps.
  16. While what you've said is true it's also worked the other way too. Darnold has had more then a few sure INT's get dropped by DB's. With that being siad though I'd say Danold's lived up to expectations of potential franchise QB . The CS on the otherhand (Bates/Bowles specifically) has left a lot to be desired. Bates has been underwhelming and while it's only been 7 games does make me wonder if we were better off keeping Morton.
  17. I'm not saying we would've gotten first rd. picks back for them but even getting 5th-6th rd picks to move them to a contending team you would think would've been a possibility, I think it came down to the fact that we just didn't want to admit who we were.
  18. With all the cap space we have and what free agency is shaping up to be I'm honestly off the belief we should be doing the opposite. We should leverage the cap space we have and start to trade picks for good young established players who are on bad teams. Let's start talking to Cardinals, Raiders, even Giants and see if we can take a big contract off their hands for a mid rd. pick. I know it's not a popular opinion but we'll have to spend that $100mm somehow. I'm not saying go take 33 year old has-beens who were good 5 years ago but I'd be very open to being aggressive and getting a guy li
  19. Already brought up in this thread but the Giants are doing what the Jets should've done two years ago. The fact that we let Decker, Marshall, Forte, etc...walk and got nothing back was criminal. The whole idea of trying to salvage the 2015 season and basically bring that whole team back was just a huge mistake. With that being said, the Giants are now trying to clean up the fact that they made a huge mistake not drafting a QB and ultimately we'll see how this pans out for them. Too bad the Giants would never trade with us, I'd love to poach a couple of guys off that roster like Sterling Sh
  20. I know neither have played great but I'm hoping we can get Trumaine Johnson and Skrine back to compromise. They were missed yesterday. Nickerson looks promising but I think still needs some time
  21. I think if you keep Macc and get rid of Bowles you are very much limiting your coaching options. No one is going to want to take the job with a "lame duck" GM in place knowing they're likely only going to get one year. I think the best approach might be to bring a football czar like a Tom Coughlin type and let him oversee the GM and coaching decisions. I'm not sure who that guy is but the Jets are in desperate need of a football guy to run the football side. Let Chris and/or Woody stick to the business side. I've always thought if there was a disagreement between Bowles and Macc how could
  22. Yes we probably would be but the real story is their GM Dave Caldwell. That team is loaded with talent, I remember before hiring Idzik we reached out to Caldwell about our GM job but he turned is down even for an interview which I'm assuming was due to the fact he was going to saddled with Rex. I know Coughlin is going to get a ton of credit from the FO standpoint but JAX has been building the talent around that team for a while. Not taking anything away from Marrone who seems to have done a nice job but the real story with JAX is the talent on that roster.
  23. Andy Reid's special teams coach Dave Toub has been a name mentioned around coaching circles for a while now I know he's gotten a few interviews but no offers. He should probably be the first name on the list this offseason if we fire Bowles. I know everyone wants the next MccVay but the a special teams guy is an intriguing option considering you would expect they wouldn't be too heavy on one side of the ball. He may even be able to grab a KC offensive asst. to bring in as the OC.
  24. I think we have an average o-line but coupled with a rookie QB and a new scheme we probably look worse then we are. Macc does finally need to start investing some resources into the o-line but I really don't think it's been as much of a problem as some are making it out to be. Guys like Myles Garrett are going to beat even the best o-linemen in the league.
  25. I remember before hiring Idzik, the rumor was the Jets reached out to Caldwell about the job and he turned us down, probably because Woody refused to let the GM fire Rex. I know Coughlin and Marrone are going to get a ton of credit but Caldwell has been building up the talent on that team for a while. If Woody could have only let go of Rex a few years earlier or at least let the GM decide his fate
