    If you think for one minute I won't be saying "That WR is covered in Sauce" you have seriously underestimated my maturity.

    He had Sauce all over him on that play ...

    Sauce Island???

    So long as no-one burns the Sauce!! :D

    Meh- disappeared in the playoffs and not a big threat in the regular season either.  Maybe better in our system?

    He was injured in Q1 of the AFCCG, ruled out of the game and was doubtful to even play in the Superbowl.

    CJ Uzomah in the 2021 regular season - 49 catches, 493 yards, 5 TDs.

    CJ Uzomah in the 2021 playoffs - 15 catches, 146 yards and a TD. (Most of this was in 2 games).

    For comparison ...

    Ryan Griffin in the 2021 regular season - 27 catches, 261 yards and a 2 TDs.

    Last year, we thought there was going to be this second wave of players made available by teams in cap hell. It never came. Teams find a way to restructure contracts. Salary cap hell seems to be a myth.

    It may not be "hell" but some teams do have to part with players for salary reasons. Take Dallas for example ... traded Cooper for a 5th just to offload his contract. At one point their big day 1 move in FA was they extended their long snapper on a one-year vet minimum deal. :D

    this is what I was taking about,
    PFF called it right on this one. he came in here and was terrible 

    “Signing a player coming off a career year is always dangerous — doubly so when the plan is to transplant him into a significantly worse environment. That’s exactly what the Jets did with Davis, as they hoped he could lead a new-look receiving corps to success with a rookie quarterback. Davis dealt with injuries and only played in nine games, but in those games, he averaged just 1.74 yards per route run — a massive dropoff from the 2.58 he managed last season. Davis also posted the highest drop rate (15.6%) of his career and his lowest PFF grade since he was a rookie. He will get another chance next season, but the Jets need the former first-round pick to up his game.“

    Depends if you think that the problem was with Davis developing dropsy vs. Zach's throwing being the main issue here ... given Zach's well documented issues I'm of the opinion that it was more on him than the WRs.

    You are 100% right...the compensation was ridiculous. I honestly just don't think they really wanted him. Don't think there's any more to it than that. Makes me think they are taking a WR at #4 even if they sign another in FA. The other thing that is a bit strange......didn't hear anything about multiple teams in on Cooper, especially with the price Dallas was asking for.

    The reason the compensation was so low was the contract rather than the player.

    Davis always has had drop issues 

    moore has a slight frame 

    what you think? I think the answer is pretty obvious tbh 

     

    By that same logic, Becton should have played most of the year last year and been a strong LT, like in his first year. And Mims should have looked promising, like in his first year.

    I guess Joe Burrow shouldn't have lasted the season in Cincy either? 

    Players can improve and players can regress. Some get hurt and some stay healthy. But assuming the same will happen next year is just looking for misery IMHO.

  7. My view overall, especially as it relates to this off season, is that the performance of the Jets in 2022 will be more driven by the moves that we have already made in previous years. The upside of having a very young team is that you should see growth come organically - so many players that were part of the 4 win season last year should be the cause of a better season this year.

    We don't start this season looking at 4 wins max unless we add better players in FA / draft. If that were the case then we are already lost. But we have more reasons than a lot of teams to expect our younger contingent of players to contribute significantly more next year. This is not a team of returning vets hoping for one last hurrah before their window closes and they hang it up; it's a team that needs to put in the hard work to see that window start to open. Not to look at others to do it for them, but to do it themselves, and if others join in and become part of it then so much the better.

    Take the OL for example - we have a mix of guys here (vets and youngsters) that have all shown ability at different times; it now needs to be put together and raised up a level. But we can have a very good OL without having to upgrade all that much - RG maybe, but even LDT for a full season would be a plus vs. 2021. AVT year 2 should be even better than AVT year 1. Fant is on the up, if he can keep that level of play we'll do well. Becton has to stay on the damned field, but if he can be at least as good as Becton 2020 it'll elevate the unit.

    Same applies at RB, WR, QB ... we need the current guys to continue to develop, maybe with some support via FA / draft, but it shouldn't be that we bring in a new WR and he becomes the focal point while Moore chips in 600 yards and 5 TDs. The exact same with Carter. Both these guys have to be looking at that magical 1,000 yard mark and becoming a big part of the reason we win more games. Zach - goes without saying, he has to show development in Year 2 and become a real plus point at his position, a guy we win because of, not in spite of. TE is the only genuine "black hole" on offense where we pretty much need to start over. 

    So if FA doesn't see a whole bunch of new players walk in the door I'm not going to panic - in fact, if we went crazy and brought in a load of guys it would make me wonder what they see (or don't see) in many of the current players that showed promise last year. Yes, we have holes to fill - but we also have a lot of guys that have a lot of room to improve and make their mark in 2022.

    Can't tell if trolling or not.

    You can't seriously see what Elijah Moore and Michael Carter did last season with AVT in the trenches and say Douglas hasn't added anyone to support Wilson.  Even with having a down year, Corey Davis was also on pace for 1,000 yards before he got hurt.  Are we getting upset that he didn't add 10 high level starters on offense in two drafts?

    I see too often on here where players are judged based on how they played last year. Moore was hurt last year ... Davis suffered from drops and was hurt last year ... therefore they're not going to be better in Year 2. Yet the same logic goes out the window with FAs - the issues from last year will just vanish the moment we spend a ton of money on them.

    It's almost as if money makes a player better all by itself. We spent 20m on that guy so he must be amazing.

    No your right. Drafting guys like Mimms is the way. 

    FA is critical and more important then the draft. 

    You can screw up in FA and you can screw up in the draft. Neither is "right" or "wrong" - it all depends on who you get.

    Trumaine Johnson, LeVeon Bell are good examples of bad FA signings. Mims is a good example of a bad draft pick (to date, anyway).

    Anyone saying that you shouldn't bother with draft picks because some turn out bad, or shouldn't bother with FA for the same reason, is being far too black and white about it. The only "right way" is getting good players. We need JD to do this, via the draft and / or FA. If he fails at this, it was his player decisions that were poor, not the method of acquisition.

    Russell Gage didn't flourish when the Ridley quit and the Falcons aren't interested in keeping him despite a need at WR.

    This is who the target should be?

    Go for Gallup and draft WR.  Gallup has never really been given a chance to be a focal part of an O.  Davis and Gallup with Moore in slot and drafting a WR in first 2 rounds sounds solid.

    Gallup just re-signed with Dallas : https://www.nfl.com/news/michael-gallup-re-signs-with-cowboys-for-five-years-62-5m

    5 years, $62.5m

  11. Great to see that we should model our team building on offense on how Cleveland have done it with Mayfield.

    Trade for a big name receiver whose previous team couldn't wait to get rid of him; also bring in his BFF buddy to form a dynamic duo; find out the headache is a headache and cut him; trade for a big name receiver whose previous team couldn't wait to get rid of him ...

    And now they're open to trading the other half of the dynamic duo. Because, you know, consistency and chemistry are not important to a young QB.

    How I wish we could build an offense the Cleveland way ...
