  1. Tanny ??? Does that mean you are suggesting that Tanny was prone to emotional reactionary draft and FA selections ??? I know he was too much of a push over for Rex who destroyed his own tenure with the Jets by horrendous roster management, but I don't think Tanny was the driving force. He was just the weak willed fellow that let a child go to the candy store on his own...
  2. With the current state of affairs regarding the offensive line, the Jets will have to be looking everywhere including division III for manpower...
  3. https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nfl/nfl-combine-former-don-bosco-c-matt-hennessy-ready-to-take-nfl-leap-has-jets-connection/ar-BB10tqHf?ocid=hplocalnews The Jets Next Center ???
  4. Naw... I was just hoping for a single quality OT. I really like Castanzo...
  5. Not Conklin. Please, no. Not dependable and a below average pass blocker. Keep Beachum and draft Wills, Wirfs or Thomas. it is OK to spend a lot of money on a OT *if* they deliver the goods, but signing Conklin is pissing away good money... I was SOOOO hoping for Castanzo and pairing him with Thomas, or Wirfs or Wills... Sh*t !!! Pi$s !!! Damn !!!
  6. Agree fully on Conklin. I would not pursue him. I want Castanzo...
  7. I know it is not likely, but I have been HOPING the Jets can land Castonzo. If they can manage that & come away from the draft with either Wills or Wirfs, it would be fantastic. Like it or not, one if not two of the current Jets interior lineman will be starters in 2020. Harrison at center would be OK. He did a nice job. The Jets will also have ample opportunity to draft a starting interior lineman in rounds 5-7. This all depends on the Joe D. managing to coax Castanzo to come sign with the Jets...
  8. My top pick would be Andrew Thomas. There is still a chance he can fall to # 11. My second best pick would be Wirfs if he is available and Thomas is not. If either of them is not available, I'd go for Wills. Love his agility, but not sure if he has the length to be an ideal LT. Perhaps he'd be better as a RT. If the Jets run an offense that is best suited for Darnold, you will see the pocket move very often. A fluid player like Wills would still be a nice addition. I would stay away from Becton despite the size and athleticism. He *may* turn out to be the stud lineman of the draft aft
  9. There is no way around the critical situation the Jets are facing. No way to sugar coat it. No bright side to look on. The Jets do not have a single starting quality player at any of the offensive line positions. Here is where the Jets stand from an evaluation based strictly on the talent and ability of the individual offensive lineman that they can have on the roster if they so choose. 1. Edoga. does not have the skill set to play on the outside of the line. It is possible that he can work out on the interior, but that is just wishful thinking. All considerations for cap sp
  10. What the hell ??? He's quite skilled in coverage. He does real good vs. TE's and ball carriers. He's not a match for the corner, but he is as good as you can ask for covering the part of the field you would expect a SS to occupy. The flat, shallow seam and slot...
  11. Debatable, at least. It is not trivial for a SS to wind up with so many sacks. He's very good in the box against the run and was a big part of why GW's defense was so good against the ground attack. It compelled opposing teams to pass more often, and in that case, Adams did double duty by pressuring/sacking the QB. He also did well when he wound up having to account for TE's and ball carriers in coverage. Adams helps the defense in multiple ways. That is not even counting the leadership/motivational components...
  12. Makes sense... I agree with the fans/pundits that don't see SS as a premium position, but Jamal is more than the position itself. His level/style of play transcends the expected impact of even a top level safety. I guess $15mm would be a sound deal for such a player.
  13. This is exactly what JD has to say regardless of what his plan is. He's got a can that says "GM Speak, Open And Pour". I'd go as high as 14 million a year for him but not a penny more.
  14. At least he didn't say.... "I'm rich"
  15. Actually, accurate. We all like CJ, Bell and Enunwa and expected big things, but for they money they cost, they returned very little. Winters was below average to begin with and then the injuries saw him become a liability on the field Trumaine Johnson sucked even before he was injured. One of the worst FA deals in Jet history. Enunwa was quite productive *when* not injured, but he cant stay on the field. I still want to give props to QE for still trying to coming back from that scary neck injury. That takes balls and hard work. CJ was a one man defense for half a gam
  16. I guess you are right, yeah... I'm just thinking with CJ back, if their new addition Cashman comes back from injury and can stay healthy, they have enough manpower if they want to move on from Williamson. Probably the smart/safe play to keep Williamson based on the quality of play last season.
  17. I like Williamson too, but not sure if keeping him is worth passing up the chance to free up 6.5 million in cap space. I think it will be a tuff choice for JD. I'm on the fence...
  18. Which five Jets will eat up the most resources and return the least for their money ??? 1. Trumaine Johnson (OUCH... JUST OUCH !!!) 2. Winters - Cut him and save 7.5 million against the cap 3. Josh Bellamy - Cut him and save 2.5 million against the cap 4. Darryl Roberts - Cut him and save 6 million against the cap 5. Avery Williamson - Cut him lose and save 6.5 million against the cap OK... Time to get out the salt...
  19. Kurt Warner also had small hands for a pro qb. He wore gloves to help him keep the ball in his possession. No big deal. I would still ABSOLUTELY take Herbert over JB and Tua regardless of hand size.
  20. I *sure* hope so... And for the right side, not the left.
  21. You know your team's management is deaf, dumb and blind if they don't realize that the offensive line is the most important unit to keep stocked with quality talent. Good QB, Good RB, Good WR's and bad offensive line equals wasted money, poor production and a dead QB. You build the line first and make sure you are always adding depth and taking into consideration that your top performing lineman are going to rake your ass over the coals when their contract is up. Have plans to replace them in the draft *REGULARLY* or get used to sucking year in and year out.
  22. I think Todd was a pretty good QB. I remember going to the games at Shae when I was a kid with those winds that would leave your face looking like you were baking in the sun. Todd did a really good job throwing in the wind. Better than opposing QB's. I also think Todd threw one of the best back corner end zone fades I ever saw. He got such a good loop on the ball. It is also fair to say that we don't know for sure what would have occurred if Todd stayed with the Jets longer than he did. He still had gas left in the tank when he was sent off. I was at the playoff game at Shae that they l
  23. How about a flying lawnmower that decapitates people ??? Oh, wait... Already been done...
