  1. Feel free to merge this in the Meyers Contract post. JFM has popped on Film for awhile now and our players are finally in a system that allow them to play up to their potential. Many of you guys in this thread saw this last year too. Don't have time to post much But man did we find ourselves a STUD GM. Douglas is nailing the big moves like hiring Saleh, trades and bringing in the right system for his players and he is doing all the small moves killing it with late draft picks and waiver wire guys like JFM. Young Stud pass rusher for free? Unbelievable. Now Wilson is injured a
  2. Love Joe Douglas. 28 Year old player. Just had his best year as a Pro. We're about to change our entire defensive scheme. By time this team is ready to compete deep in the playoffs hell be over 30. This is just not the time to sign a guy like Maye to a megadeal. At his age and our timeline this is a Franchise and let walk or Franchise x2 situation while we find his replacement. How many top 10 safeties are over 30 yrs old? Not many.
  3. "CJ is the best player on the team" "CJ's contract makes him untradeable" "Fake news - I hate rumor season" Thread is full of a whole bunch of homers and misinformation. Here's some facts: The Jets have been listening on CJ since the start of FA. CJ is 29. CJ was Elite as a 3-4 LB in Balitmore. We do not run that system and several LB's from Baltimore have not played well on other teams once they leave in Balitmore. His contract is absolutely horrible. If you don't think JD is trying to get rid of this horrid contract for a old playe
  4. We got Moses so cheap. JD is a damn Jedi.
  5. Douglas is the Best GM we have had here. Unbelievable. Crowder gives us insurance and will likely be traded if we fall out of the playoff hunt.
  6. Many of us said Crowder was gone the second we drafted Moore. You simply don't keep 10m backup slot receivers with injury problems. Btw is excellent to see a GM that uses leverage correctly. Crowder will either get the Alex Lewis or Brian Winters treatment unless he's traded. Love Douglas
  7. 7th overall pick for a RT who played only 1 full year year of excellent play before sitting out for a year. What could go wrong? Oh yeah - You also passed up on Justin Fields for Jared Goff.
  8. Sanchez is by far a bigger bust then Darnold and its not close. Really when you look at top 10 QB's that busted he may have been put in the best situation since Big Ben got drafted to the Steelers and still found a way to suck. If you really think about the situation Sanchez was placed in it had to be one of the best developmental spots in the NFL. We had an amazing Oline and one of the best running games in the league. Our Defense was amazing he had weapons. Edwards, Holmes and Keller was a great group. Out of the 20-30 draft bust QB's since then I would have to think that was one
  9. From a team building perspective it would be fantastic for James Morgan to come in and play decent for a game or two. Especially the first 1-2 games to take that pressure off Zach. We need to know if he is the long term backup here firstly which is a very valuable spot. Secondly if he plays well hell be extremely valuable if we want to trade him. People forget but Morgan was hyped and has a gun. He might surprise us a bit.
  10. I remember coming here and people complaining so hard we didn't keep Robby. Those guys were dead wrong. Douglas made the right decision letting him go. Carolina really screwed up giving him that money as its part of the reason they didn't pay Curtis Samuel. Really poor decision by Carolina keeping Robby/Letting Curtis Samuel get to FA. Samuel is much younger and way more versatile.
  11. Re: Tevin Jenkins Just incase people forgot: We passed on him twice. We have Jamison Crowder who is one of the better slot guys in the league and we were literally trying to trade up for a slot in Elijah Moore. So it's not like we cared about investing extra resources in a player we liked. Several rumors Tevin Jenkins has some medical red flag situation. Also keep in mind he didn't become that mauler until this year as a 23 year old and many think is just a RT. Had injury issues at the end of last year. AVT is two years younger than him and if his arms were like 1 inch l
  12. I don't think the Dolphins have the goods anymore to get him. I mean how badly would someone want SF's first next year? Should be in the 20's. Eagles on the otherhand line up perfect as hes in the NFC and likely have 3 first. Lions may not be interested but if Im Houston I would value their first rounder higher then anyone else.
  13. Theres several things to read that may vary a few percentage points depending on your criteria but heres one for you. Theres alot of numbers out there if you search for them. https://www.arrowheadpride.com/2015/2/20/8072877/what-the-statistics-tell-us-about-the-draft-by-round
  14. At times there is fluff. Those of us here on Draft Day are aware there was a poster here that claimed the Jets were trying to move back into the first for Elijah Moore on the first day. Thats how much they liked him. So this is real stuff. Again - This is why you can't judge AVT in a vacuum. Elijah Moore would have been the pick at 23 and Michael Carter would have been selected by us in the 3rd round by all reports by the FO. This draft could have been: Wilson, Moore 1.23, Jenkins 2.2, Michael Carter 3.2, Ronnie Perkins 3.23. Echols etc. Instead it was Wlson, AVT,
  15. A week later and I still can't believe people are upset at trading 3rd round picks to potentially acquire a Pro Bowl or All Pro player. It's the 3rd round. The chance of these picks hitting are usually have a 30% of hitting as opposed to the 86% chance of lineman hitting in round 1. Our last few 3rd round picks have been Jachai Polite, Chuma Edoga and Zuninga. There are just so many factors specifically in this draft most are ignoring. We settled on Wilson a month before the draft so this was extremely thought out. It was a Covid draft in which the talent was depleted and 3rd roun
  16. Theres going to be a ton of responses in this thread. 99% of the responses will come from people that didn't bother to read the rationale behind Jason's system. Let me save you all some reading - Jason's system is trash and just a way to make his subjective viewpoints look like they have some statistical backing. For example the bears traded up and gave up a ton to move up 9 spots so he then assigned Justin Fields 22.5m of value as he's a QB so the trade in his opinion is pretty close to even. So what happens if Justin Fields sucks? What happens if the guy gets benched next year? I
  17. Agreed. Judging from the attention the Jets put on individual prospects from the leaks we are aware of the Jets likely would have come out of R3 with two out of Tommy Tremble/Ronnie Perkins/Michael Carter if I had to put money on it. They also were trying to trade up for Elijah Moore so I believe he would have been 1.23. So it was: Trade Up: Wilson, AVT, Moore, Carter and Sherwood(Vikings Pick) vs If we stayed there - Wilson, 1.23: Moore, 2:34 Tevin Jenkins, 3.2 Ronnie Perkins and 3.23 Michael Carter The Jets did really well in the move up. Joe talked a
  18. It's discussed at length in the above thread. But to keep it short and simple I think if you look at the Jets interviews there was a clear direction in what they wanted to do. For me - It was look at groups - Not individual's. Thats what they did with the LT group last year. QB was a known thing. But after that: The Jets interviewed a group of lineman that were going to go in R1. The Jets interviewed a group of WR that were going to go Late 1/Early 2. The Jets interviewed several RB's that traditionally go mid to late 2. I think it was clear as day the directi
  19. Fair Play. Lots of great responses from you later on in the thread - Just using the above to segway into the PFF positional value debate. I am a big fan of analytics in general and in other sports they are gospel like baseball. But in football they are only one piece of the pie. What they don't take into account is year to year variations especially during a covid year and individual teams draft tendencies. Before we start lets just let it be known PFF missed horribly on Josh Allen as well as Justin Herbert. They were terribly wrong on both. So yea I value some of their statistics
  20. Just my opinion here. In this years draft we drafted 10 players. In next years draft we have like 13 picks. Thats before UDFA's and FA. At a certain point we are going to be drafting backups high meaning we are not going to have depth issues. To compete with Mahomes eventually we need several All Pro's. Not Fill in's or JAG's. If Joe Douglas thinks theres a All Pro or Pro Bowler on the board he needs to move up. I am absolutely confident we could get the Wyatt Daviss of the World later in the draft as those guys are completely replaceable. We are talking about giving up
  21. If Darrisaw was Elite he wouldn't have been passed up by 22 teams. Especially by multiple teams that needed a LT.
  22. In regards to UDFA - They are UDFA's for a reason. I feel like its kinda " take what you can get" there kinda thing. I think this article is from last year. If you look at our last two draft classes under Douglas there is certainly a trend towards longer guys. This year especially its almost all of them. There seems to be a clear type of player they are going after for better or worse.
  23. The Jets have never focused on speed before. It's so refreshing.
