  1. I think it's important when evaluating draft picks to look at the players picked after that guy.  And while Leo has been a good to great player at times the pick should've been Beasley.  At the time we already had Sheldon and Mo and were in desperate need of an edge pass rusher.  I also think its fair to say that Leo was the "Safe" pick as he was regarded by most experts the consensus #1 can't miss of the draft.  Again, not going to complain about Leo but when you look at the fact Beasley was sitting there and went two picks later, at a spot of a major need he should've been the pick.  I just hope going forward Macc has learned to weight BPA vs. position of need meaning maybe Beasley was rated slightly below Leo, you should've probably still taken Beasley b/c of need and the fact he plays a more premium position.  The rest of the draft sort of speaks for itself as none of these guys have contributed much

    Good article.

    Maccagnan needs to get better at his job. That’s the biggest issue with the Jets organization right now. He’s made some nice moves but overall he’s sucked. Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg, enough said. 

    Yep, I agree.  While I'm still not necessarily sold on Bowles there needs to be a little more anger directed towards the GM who over 3 seasons here now has left the HC with Ryan Fitzpatrick, Geno Smith, Bryce Petty, Christian Hackenberg, and Josh McCown at QB.  It's time for Macc to show some conviction and get a franchise QB this year or he needs to he shown the door.

    Cleveland would be awesome.  Allows for trading up to #1.  Get a QB at any cost.


    Not to mention Josh Gordon is a keeper for me in 2018 (for a 14th rounder).

    I also heard Clev. is likely to double down on the QB position meaning they'll most likely draft a QB and look to sign a FA.  I don't think Cousins would be that guy though since it they draft a QB with the first pick I don't see them wanting to be locked into a long term deal like Cousins is most likely going to get they may go the route of a Tyrod Taylor type who may be provide them more flexibility.

    Wish we had the flexibility to get cute and try and wait on a guy like Mayfield to trade back into he first and take because I would love one of the top OL in this draft. These are the kinds of guys that stick there and don't have to worry about for the next decade.

    Agreed but it's just too much of a risk in our position, maybe trade our two number two's to get back into the 1st and get an o-lineman?

    If we go best def player available, I'm out...no joke.

    I'm ok with BPA available to a point but in that scenario you need to weigh the value of the position.  For instance, if you have a D-Tackle ranked slightly better than say a CB you would think you would steer more towards that CB vs. the D-Tackle just because it's just a more valuable position in today's NFL.  Obviously this also applies to the QB.  Not that you want to reach for a player you don't believe in because that just sets the organization back further but you also have to take some risk.  This is something I hope Macc has learned

    I do think Revis was a woody move but the rest of the moves made sense as placeholders until he could bring in his own young guys to fill out the roster.

    Agreed, but all we did was delay the rebuild that was much needed.  Not to blame Idzik for everything but his two drafts and the lack of getting any real talent was debilitating to the organization long term and instead of trying to piece together a 10 win team Macc and Bowles should've went all in on the rebuild year one which I think the fans would've been much more patient of.

    I think he went on a heavy spending spree because he did not know what the roster had (since it was his first year) and wanted to surround Geno with as much talent as possible to see if he was the answer. While those FAs took up most of the cap Macc brought in cheaper alternatives via the draft/trades/waiver wire to build a young roster without needing to rely on them right away.

    I don't think we will go too crazy in FA especially if we can't land Cousins.

    I think it was moreso Woody's mandate to spend money and make this team competitive ASAP after the Idzik debacle.  Hence the push to bring Revis back.

  8. Look, I get that this decision is frustrating and makes no sense, I mean the Jets aren't making the payoffs this year so what's the real difference between a possible 6-7 win season other than draft position?  But in the grand scheme of things this really means nothing, this is the second offensive regime (Chan and now Morton) to come in and neither one has exactly had glowing things to say about these guys which tells us all we need to know.  So what if Petty steps in for 2 or 3 games and plays ok, is that really enough to warrant us not drafting or signing a QB next year?  Of course not, once McCown got past week 8 as the starter I pretty much knew it was over or these guys.  The coaching staff is thinking about the rest of the offense (WR's, O-Line, RB's) and developing them and pretty much moved on from the possibility of Hack or Petty being the guy.  And at this point, while a bit frustrating probably the right move.  Don't be mad at Bowles for this, be at Macc for putting Bowles in a position where his best option at QB is a 38 year old journeyman in McCown.

    You're arguing with trolls. Cousins is a very very good QB. Considering the youth and cap situation with this team, he is a perfect fit for our team. It would also allow us to use our top 10-12 pick on a OL/RB/Edge Rusher. And then use our 2 second round picks to beef up other areas of our team. We could enter next year as a team ready to win 10+ games. 

    If we want Rosen/Darnold we will likely have to leap frog the Giants via trade which would cost us a ton of picks this year and next. Then we have less talent on the team and a young QB that could take a couple of years to develop (not a terrible back up plan, but not ideal). 


    Agreed, Cousins isn't Brady but I think fans just get way to enamored with the idea of drafting and developing a QB vs. paying a free agent.  Unfortunately it looks like the Jets may have won enough games already to knock them out of a top pick and with the holes on this team you'd hate to have to trade away a ton of picks to draft a QB.  Signing a FA like Cousins gives us our QB plus 3 picks in the first two rds. to beef up those positions where we desperately need help.  Again, it would be ideal to draft your franchise QB b/c you then get to keep that guy under control on a pretty fair salary for the first few years but you risk not being able to build a team around that player due to the fact that you've had to trade away the rest of your draft to get him.

  10. I don't have a problem with what Bowles said his post game presser about Robby campaigning for Pro Bowl votes, he's been very vocal about the "team first" environment he's trying to create in that locker room.  With that being said,  where I do have a problem is with Bowles always being quick to call out the young guys and not the veterans.  I mean I hate to assume but what if it was Forte that said that?  I have a feeling his response would've been much different.  I actually don't dislike Bowles overall and hate to pile on but this is just one thing I've noticed with him, he has huge favoritism towards vets vs. the young guys.

    if mccagnan does this, doesn't go for it with a qb in this draft, then i have to conclude that he thinks his job security is more tied to not drafting a sanchez, then it is to finding a wentz.

    See, I agree that he needs to find a QB but the worst thing he and this franchise should do is draft someone just because we need a QB.  Now, if he likes Rosen or Mayfield then do whatever it takes to get him but if these guys are unattainable b/c of our draft position then go with the next best strategy.  I do think they need to draft a QB this year and give that QB a real shot but a real backup plan like Tyrod Taylor could make a lot of sense.

    I used to think this, but not anymore. Tyrod Taylor/Sam Bradford/Kirk Cousins/Alex Smith will all be available either by trade or FA. I'm now in the camp that the Jets will sign/trade for one of those guys, send a draft pick to Denver for Demariyus Thomas, spend FA $$$ on the OL and draft either a CB or EDGE in the 1st.

    Don't hate it except for the Bradford part.  Guys been hurt too much to rely on

    Kearse is under contract and playing well.  ASJ and Kerley are free agents.  Enunwa should be also, but with his lack of games played, I am not sure how the accrued years work.  I still think he is a UFA. 

    Yes and we should have enough cap room to bring them all back especially Enunwa who may look to play on a one year prove it deal so he's not locked into a cheap contract if he comes back strong, ideally, you'd like to see Hansen or Stewart step up but I guess in order to do that they actually need to get on the field.  ASJ needs to cut back on the penalties but he's been the best TE this team has had in a very long time and seems to like being a Jet so I would anticipate he'll be back.  Kerley, ehhh just keep Kearse and again hope one of the young guys pans out.  Again I'm not apposed to bringing in another WR just saying that I don't think we need to to find the next Julio Jones.

    If we aren't going to buy a top QB then we will need to trade up to get the top QB on our board. The fact is we need a legit QB. We have needed a legit QB for a long, long, long, long time. This team keeps trying to outsmart the room and takes too many half measures when it comes to QB. It is why we are usually in the bottom half of the league, drafting near the top in the draft. 

    yikes, typo on my part that was actually supposed to read WR not QB completely agree we need a legit QB

    See WR is actually one of the areas where I don't think we need to break the bank.  I think you can win with a good solid receiving corps.  Not saying we don't need another WR (don't forget about Enunwa) but I don't think it has to be Julio Jones if we can build a team with Robby, Enunwa, maybe keep Kearse/Kerley and hopefully one of the draft picks pans out (Hansen/Stewart) with ASJ I think that's plenty of offense  With all the holes I'd rather spend money on a CB, Edge Rusher or on the o-line before WR.

    I know. But we had more holes then. 

    I also think there was a mandate from ownership to fix the mess after the Idzik debacle meaning they knew there was a good chance they were mortgaging their future for short term success but that's probably what the owner wanted hence bringing back Revis.  That's not so say I want to wait another 5 years to turn this thing around but I do think there will be a much more methodical approach to how the FO does things this time around.

    They still need a #1 IMHO. A Dez Bryant, Julio Jones type of guy.

    Ideal for me would be to be able to find both the QB and WR in the draft but that is pretty unlikely. I would love to see a combo like Derek Carr and Amari Cooper that could be around for 10 years.

    Can't argue on the O-Line that needs to be addressed as well

    See wr is actually one of the areas where I don't think we need to break the bank.  I think you can win with a good solid receiving corps.  Not saying we don't need another WR (don't forget about Enunwa) but I don't think it has to be Julio Jones if we can build a team with Robby, Enunwa, maybe keep Kearse/Kerley and hopefully one of the draft picks pans out (Hansen/Stewart) with ASJ I think that's plenty of offense  With all the holes I'd rather spend money on a CB, Edge Rusher or on the o-line before WR.

  18. Sorry but this is NY Sports Radio and they were a top rated morning show.  On top of that, they also lived in NY which means cost of living was higher so maybe he wasn't making $2.5mm but had to be more than $250k.  Crap, I'm a mid level marketing manager and I'm pulling down about $150k/year living in NJ so it's not that far fetched at all.  Also, I'm sure he had other endorsements and speaking things he got paid for as well.  I know him and Boomer had a restaurant at the Barclay's Center that they were probably getting paid a licensing fee for, they were simulcasted on CBS Sports which I'm sure paid them on top of their radio salaries, and like I mentioned he also was probably making a little money doing things like paid appearances and speaking fees. 

  19. Pryor was a name that has sort of flown under the radar when fans talk about the "veteran purge" that went on last offseason and while it turned out to be a good trade for the Jets, I think Bowles and Macc's mindset on getting rid pf Pryor was addition by subtraction as it looks more and more like Pryor was a locker room cancer that needed to go.  The Browns have bigger problems than an ILB but what a microcosm of why the Browns are so bad.  Trading a decent player for a Safety who's not even on the team anymore.

    His salary was actually $2.5 mil that was a typo but even still to have that mansion with NJ property taxes plus renting an expensive condo in Manhattan plus gambling no way he can afford that

    That makes more sense, as much as it was being quoted around I refused to believe he was only making $250k/year.  He probably also pulled down another million a year for paid appearances and what not.

  21. Fitz was a gamer while he was here but man, the entitlement he brought with him just rubbed me the wrong way and not to mention the divide in the locker room between the Pro-Fitz crowd (Marshall, Decker, Mangold etc...) and everyone else (Sheldon) really was a major reason the team fell apart the way it did last year also resulting in the purge you saw this offseason.

  22. I don't have a problem with the trade itself.  Meaning, giving up a 5th rd. pick for a young CB with a lot of potential on the surface makes sense.  I mean he's the type of talent you're going to find in the 4th and 5th rds anyway.  I'm more disappointed with the fact that no one on the roster was able to step up.  I know these later round picks are a crap shoot but I had high hopes for Juston Burris and he has just looked lost.  What about Derrick Jones who we drafted in the 6th last year?  Or maybe this was a spot McDougle could've filled.  It's just disappointing to have to give up a draft pick because we're so think at CB
