  1. I think it really depends on what we want to do. If we would rather trade down, I'd say no, we want Bosa to go number 1 overall so that there is a realistic chance that Murray and Haskins are both on the board when we pick at #3. If we would rather take the best pass rusher available, then obviously, yes.
  2. I agree to an extent, but it all depends on how much they actually like the QBs in this draft.
  3. I mean, I think their fanbase would be fine with a tank year. Everyone knows they need to take a QB at some point. They really should have just taken Darnold last year.
  4. I could be totally wrong, but I don't get the impression that the Giants are taking a QB. My hunch is that they go all in on Eli again this year and find his replacement in next year's draft. Edit: Why would the Giants have brought Eli back (including letting him collect his 5 million dollar roster bonus a few days ago) if they were going to trade up for his replacement (Giving away a ton of draft capital in the process)? That just doesn't make any sense to me.
  5. We would demand it. Everyone overpays to move up and draft a QB. Look at the ridiculous package Washington traded away the last time they tried to do this (for RG3). And this is a team moving from #15 to #3 . . . They are going to have to give us a motherf*cking haul. bottom line.
  6. This is precisely what I would ask for. Basically, we approach this from a position of strength. We don't need to trade the pick. We would be quite happy to sit there at #3 and take Allen (filling a need). If they "need" to go up and get a quarterback, then we make the deal on our terms or not at all.
  7. I probably wouldn’t give up anything more than a 4th for a guy like Shepard
  8. **** no. He's a nice receiver, but not worth going from 3 to 6. Now, if the Giants were to throw in #17 overall, we would have ourselves a deal.
  9. If had my druthers, I'd trade down and take an offensive lineman and WR with my first two picks. However, if Allen or Bosa are sitting there, I am fine with the Jets taking either guy. I'm not interested in taking Williams.
  10. As much as it shocks me, the consensus definitely seems to be that the Cards are taking Murray. Honestly, no matter what they do, we are in good shape.
  11. I still think we need another receiver, mostly because I don't trust Enunwa to stay healthy. If you told me Q was going to play 16 games this year, I'd say we are all set.
  12. Fair, but that's another reason I'm so high on the year off. I also think Bell is a better player than Murray
  13. I don't think it is being taken that way. I think people are just excited because he is easily one of the most physically talented players we have ever had who is, currently in the prime of his career, and putting up historically dominant statistics. We really have never had a guy like that. Is he guaranteed to be an all-time great going forward? No. But he's had an all-time great start to his career and he is now a Jet. Absolutely! Running backs have a finite number of touches in them. It's no different than miles on a car.
  14. I completely agree with you. I wrote this in another thread, but I still do not buy that they will give up on Rosen after only one season. I'd also be totally cool with this, because then we either take Allen (who I think can be an awesome pass-rusher in the NFL) or trade down (and, at this point, I would think we would get some juicy offers for the right to draft Murray)
  15. Stop. You sound silly. What are the odds that he suddenly sucks . . . at 27 . . . after a full year without taking hits? Seriously, I am not being rhetorical. I want odds. Bell was one of the 2 best running backs in the sport two years ago. Last year, he didn't play a down. Give me your prognostication going forward. If he were coming off a career threatening injury, I would totally get your reservations. But I just don't see why Bell shouldn't reasonably be expected to be an elite player next year.
  16. Curtis had an unbelievably durable and productive career. He's an all-time great. But, prime vs. prime? Bell is clearly a more dominant player who, as Curtis alluded to himself, has more talent than Curtis ever had. Bell's first five seasons in the league speak for themselves. This doesn't mean he will have the career that Curtis had. (Chances are probably good that he won't have anywhere near Curtis's long term durability)
  17. The guy is 27. Are you telling me that you think there is a realistic chance that he will never be the same player again . . . at 27? IMO, he has, at the very least, two prime seasons left. He plays the most devalued position in the NFL. Most teams don't like giving running backs huge contracts.
  18. If we are talking about an impact pass-rusher, that statement is only marginally relevant.
  19. Good is not the word I'd use, but regardless, an impact pass rusher is precisely what any good doctor is ordering.
  20. Darnold is 21 and on a rookie contract. Wilson is 30 years old and would be making crazy money. If they believe in Darnold as an organization, that trade makes no sense for the Jets, my dude.
