  1. Well I hope I did not jinx him! My daughter (11) has an Adams, Darnold and now a Moore jersey! Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  2. Absolutely agree. Depending on the actual draft order take Stingley and one of the Edge rushers. If not get one of the three and trade back the one pick. Then go all offense.
  3. I think it is somewhat short sighted saying “we haven’t seen it”. We have seen the start of many rebuilds and perhaps we know when it starts going sideways earlier than a first time head coach. I knew this would be a tough year. New coaches (systems), new QB and tons of rookies. Problem 1 not having a vet QB to start the season. I cannot believe that you don’t have a throw away vet to start the season. Problem 2a you have a rookie QB with talent however not realizing he is not ready to start the season. 2B have an offensive line and Wrs learning a new system with new players. We knew they’d make mistakes and Zach paid the price. 3. Trade for a vet we had last year to “find out about the other players”. That should have been early in the season not week 11. I am not writing Saleh off but the missteps and yes the missteps by Saleh and JD made are obvious. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  4. So you are giving Rex a pass for taking something not broken the Bill’s defense ranked 3rd or 4th into the 15th rank D because he can only coach a 3-4 but Saleh takes heat for taking a broken 26th ranked defense in to the 32nd ranked doing the switch to his style? I am not sold on Saleh by any means but Rex just does what he does and talks. He’d be a HC somewhere if he could be successful but the league figured him out.

  5. I think we got White “Castle”. Looks great at first but turns to crap real quick. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  6. I have seen enough first time coaches. This guy is done. He has zero idea. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  7. Stop, he had the “F Gap”.!!!!! Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  8. Get a proven NFL GM and/or proven NFL HC. This team needs at least one of the two. We have seen this show before and it leads to nothing but more of the same. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  9. This was my take away as well. There was zero life in this team. This team has not progressed at all from week one. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  10. It is an absolute miss for a press conference! All I could think of the Stevie Griffin! Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  11. It is a shame. I like him as a player and person. I wanted no part of as a Jet pick. Those senior RBs with a ton of touches always scare me. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  12. Should someone break the news to PackerNation what it means to hide a highly drafted QB from mop-up duty as a rookie and preseason games as a second year player? He seems to be getting the Hack treatment. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  13. I like JD as a GM but is still new in the job. Yes, GMs have a lot of balls in the air. It becomes about prioritizing those balls. A NFL team without a starting QB signed on the roster and you draft a QB #2. That is your first and only priority. If the reports are true that he did not start negotiations until last week and then asked for 30% of the signing bonus to be delayed a year (something that is not a common occurrence for a top three pick) is a rookie mistake (or ownership mandate). I say this as someone who likes his draft picks and understand his FA signings as they are logical. I do think he needs to get better in contract negotiations for current and high draft picks. (I hope the only high draft we get going forward is the Seahawk pick next year) Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  14. There is actually no tax benefit as his base salary puts him into the top bracket. He will likely realize the same tax Payment if he split the bonus over two tax years. He would however lose the time value of the $6million. A guy with a billionaire uncle probably has some wise investing opportunities for Zach. If the hold up was holding 1/3 of the bonus from the number 2 pick (something that has probably not been done) it is not a great look. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  15. This this tweet has any truth to it then it is well deserved heat on the Jets. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  16. Zack is simply asking for all the cash he is entitled to being the number 2 pick. The number something he can’t negotiate as the CBA dictates the low contract amount. Yes the 35.2 million is a bargain! Just think back to 2010 and Sam Bradord getting 78 million for 6 years with $50 million guaranteed. JD or the Johnsons are embarrassing the themselves over a couple hundred grand if Zack busts. It’s penny wise and pound foolish. If Zack busts JD will be out the door before Zack. You can simply pass on the off set language because he is a number 2 pick. If the Jets are picking inside the top five in the next few years JD will be long gone.

  17. Now Zack is the last one standing as Lance just signed! Time to get it done. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  18. To the folks that think JD should be playing hard ball on the offset language. My question is what does it do for the team in the long run? If the answer is cash (cap space is a non issue as if will be counted) what do you that number will be? For the offset to kick in it has to be an unmitigated disaster. Zack has to bomb so badly that he is not tradable. (Worse than Sam) Zack gets released in year 3 with his 4th on the books. Say that year counts for $10 million (just for a round number). If the offset language is in place what do you think Zack will sign for with his next team as a “back up”? Here is a hint he is now capped at that $10 million dollars as he was not tradable. He will sign for league minimum. So for all the banter a few hundred grand is what the Jets stand to gain and that is if all things go wrong. My guess is the sticking point is over the bonus. ($22 million) he wants that now. Which he should want as the time value of money and playing 1/2 his games in a high tax state carries a heavy cost. I am sure with his connections this is a major point of contention. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  19. Dealing with the number 2 pick and a QB to boot vs back dealing with other draft picks are very different animals. I have never said a deal will not get done. When you are picking top 3 and player and agents expect that there will be no offset language nor bonus money being deferred. Later picks in the first round know there is a very high chance that offset language and deferred money are on the negotiating table. Not sure I’d call Zack spoiled as he is entitled a X under the CBA and he should get all he can. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  20. This is the only way to look at it! You pick 2 and worry about year 4 and offset language or bonus payout timeframe for a QB!?! The negative implications that doing this so early in JD’s career can have an impact in future drafts. Look at San Diego, not just the Eli situation but they always have extended holdouts over rookie contracts. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  21. Lol. This is still going on. Great analogy (sperm) on a prior post. Jetnut you are looking at the assets involved and misses the contract negotiation part of the deal. It really doesn’t matter the assets involved I used real estate as it a common contract people go into). So lets just call it a widget (throwback to ‘Back to School’) there is something that the seller wants to sell for X (highest price) and will to take Y (floor) and buyer want to pay A (lowest price) but willing to pay B (ceiling price). If X and B are too far apart there is a very short conversation and you never get to the meaningful contract negotiations. That is what happened in the extension talks and it is a common element in just about every situation when a contract is utilized. The TAG was what they were each willing to accept for 2021. (At or above Maye’s floor and at or below JD’s ceiling) Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  22. Lol. Sorry, I don’t sell houses. Just been a part of a ton of contract negotiations on various types of transactions. Real estate is just an easy example many people can understand as they have dealt with such transactions. In many cases they have received a lowball offer and nothing comes from it. What did JD offer on the tag? That is the number that sets the market for 2021. Very simple concept. All negotiations start with an offer. If it is not legitimate it generally goes no where. People tend not to get invested in protracted negotiations when there is never a serious offer. JD offered a very low offer on the table when there is a set amount sitting there.

  23. Agree to disagree on negotiations. Everyone has a cap. Real estate is not simply buying a house for 15/30 years. There are also investment/commercial long term/short term investments, partial interests, however one common thing in all negotiations is the offer. If deemed too low there is not bargaining the finer points. That is a basic concept in all business. As for market price that is already set by JD when he tagged him at 10.6. Market value is simply what the market will pay and 10.6 is being paid this market value. If he was not “worth it “ it would not have been offered. To get the number lower you have to add years. Market value is simply what the market will pay. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
