  1. not sure why you would be comparing to the WRs the jets had last year. refer to my post where i posted stats for the receivers the jets have now (and none of them had matt ryan throwing to them)" corey davis - 65 catches, 984 yards (15.1 avg.), 5 TDs jamison crowder - 59 catches, 699 yards (11.8), 6 TDs keelan cole - 55 catches, 642 yards (11.7), 5 TDs julio jones - 51 catches, 771 yards (15.1), 3 TDs jones was a great, great player. he's breaking down and is paid a ton. plus you need to trade for him and atlanta isn't just giving him away. so sure, if we ignore the cost (salary and trade compensation) and pretend we are getting julio jones in his prime, sure why not. but a rebuilding team shouldn't be giving away assets to acquire a past-his-prime receiver coming off his worst year and who is already on the wrong side of 30.
  2. let me guess, you also want to bring frank gore back (future HOFer and all)...
  3. except the jets also have davis, crowder and cole. FYI, last year: corey davis - 65 catches, 984 yards (15.1 avg.), 5 TDs jamison crowder - 59 catches, 699 yards (11.8), 6 TDs keelan cole - 55 catches, 642 yards (11.7), 5 TDs julio jones - 51 catches, 771 yards (15.1), 3 TDs this is no way compares the respective careers of the players. julio was an elite WR and a potential HOFer. but he's injury-prone, toward the end of his career, would cost a bit of draft capital and makes a lot of money (and probably would want some extension).
  4. there is only a slightly greater chance that JD trades for julio jones (giving up trade capital and assuming his contract) than there is JD signing me to play WR
  5. who do you think the jets should take at #2? how do you rank the QBs in this draft class? you're a bright guy who is certainly capable of thinking for himself. would you like to share how you see this draft and this QB class stack up?
  6. as a michigan alum, it will be a lot more natural for me to hate a buckeye-patriot QB than a wolverine one that said, i do not want fields in NE, because that will ensure he has a great career and wilson will be a bust, because, well just because...
  7. meh, not angry in the least. and as i said, i don't really care one way or another about conner hughes. just for the life of me can't figure out why someone would click on and comment in a post clearly titled Conner Hughes when said person doesn't care about Conner Hughes. but i can see my posts have you riled up. seems you are the angry one...
  8. if you want to start a thread "HighPitch's opinion of Conner Hughes", then those that give a darn about your opinion of CH can choose to read it and those that don't care can skip the thread. likewise, if you don't care about Conner Hughes' opinion, then skip the thread. and this isn't anything about Conner Hughes. don't really care one way or another. but curious why someone would post "who cares about so-and-so's opinion" in a thread clearly marked to indicate you will be getting so-and-so's opinion
  9. he's in his 2nd full off-season (he came on board after the draft and after FA period of 2019) and we haven't even had the draft yet, so a bit premature to be saying he's in year 3. everyone knew last year was going to be a rebuilding year, and oh yeah, this thing called a pandemic makes it a bit harder to evaluate his 1st draft class given the off-season limitations. he shed ugly contracts, accumulated draft picks, and now is starting to stock the roster with his players. let's see how this years draft class, and even next year's given the future picks he's acquired, play out before we start posting the help wanted sign for the GM position.
  10. why are you reading, let alone posting, in a thread titled connor hughes mailbag stuff, if you don't care about connor hughes' opinion/articles?
  11. if you are worried about davante parker, you got issues with your defense. maybe you mean davante adams. parker is a JAG. heck, he barely out-produced keelan cole last year. diggs is a different story
  12. i don't think this will impact what they do in the draft. at this juncture, i can't see any way the jets (or anyone for that matter) sign sherman before the draft. once the smoke has cleared after the draft and teams evaluate their rosters, sherman (and the other unsigned vets) will find a home. JD will draft the best players and fill the positions he sees fit, based on how his board is set up and how the draft unfolds. he's not going to make, or not make, a pick because maybe he will be bringing in someone like sherman after the draft. draft picks are about the next 4+ years (hopefully longer). sherman is about the next 1-3 years. i'd have no problem bringing him in. while i'm in favor of seeing what the young guys can do, i'm also in favor of seeing the jets win games. and if bringing in a stabilizer to the defense (which i think can be a good defense) helps wins games, i'm all for it. if the kids are good enough, they will see the field. sherman can still play, even if not at his prior all-pro caliber. and he can help bring some swag to the backfield.
  13. curry got a $1.3MM, 1-year deal. why would the jets go out and give clowney 7x as much money when he's not even as productive of a pass rusher as curry?
  14. he's not even better than vinny curry, who signed a 1-year, $1.3 million contract
  15. Since we are talking about situational edge rushers: In the last 2 years combined: Player A - 3 sacks, 19 QBs hits, 11 tackles for loss Player B - 8 sacks, 22 QB hits, 8 TFLs
  16. random google search: https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/free-agents/all/quarterback/ (pretty sure winston re-upped with the saints so not sure why he's listed as available above) https://nfltraderumors.co/2021-nfl-free-agent-list/ https://www.profootballnetwork.com/top-2021-nfl-free-agents-each-position/
  17. can you name any young FA QBs who still have upside? chances are if they are young and have upside, they aren't FAs. i'd be fine with nick mullens (26 y.o.), but he had elbow surgery in the off-season, which may explain why no one has signed him. do you mean a 28 y.o. brett hundley or the 29 y.o. blake bortles? so again i ask YOU to tell us who YOU would sign, not to duck behind a "debate as you like" cop-out
  18. again, i ask you to answer the question. who do you suggest we sign? and you are correct. alex smith likely isn't signing here, in part because he wants to start and given the jets are almost certainly drafting a QB @ 2, this isn't a situation he is likely interested in. so tell me who you want as the jets QBs, if we assume wilson and morgan are 2 of the QBs.
  19. so your suggestion for the jets 3 QBs are???
  20. ok, who do you suggest? and i don't mean morgan, who will also be on the roster (assuming he beats out white) teams need 3 QBs on a roster. the jets will assumedly have wilson and morgan. who is the 3rd? hoyer is pretty mediocre. not expecting him to come in and lead the team to the playoffs. but i guess you know more than belichick, who put this "putrid" QB on his roster 6 times, including last year after brady left.
  21. hoyer started 1 game in 2019 with the colts, who went 7-9 that year. he is what he is - an experienced backup QB. nothing prevents morgan (and white) from competing for the backup position. but he's an experienced guy to put in the QB room, to help ALL the young QBs (career regular season pass attempts by QBs currently on the roster, with the assumed addition of the #2 pick = 0.00). can anyone tell me the last time an nfl team went into the season with their collective QB room having the same amount of regular season snaps as bluto blutarsky's GPA?
  22. S is for stupid, and stupid is this thread S is for stupid, and stupid is this thread oh, S is for stupid, and stupid is this thread oh, stupid, stupid, stupid is this thread
  23. teams need at least 3 QBs on the roster. signing someone like hoyer does not mean morgan won't get a shot to compete for the backup spot. but at the least, it gives the jets at least 1 QB who has actually played a snap in the nfl on their roster. geez - jets fans will complain about anything.
  24. i posted this in a different pitts thread, but i believe at the same time i was putting this together, the darnold trade happened and that thread dropped down the board. since this thread seems to reviving the concept of adding pitts (here giving up a significant amount of assets/draft capital to go get him), i thought the below was applicable. TEs drafted in the top 10 since 2000 (I expanded it to 10 since a list of the top 5 is blank) 2019 - TJ Hockenson (8) 2014 - Eric Ebron (10) 2006 - Vernon Davis (6) 2004 - Kellen Winslow Jr (6) Now for those that consider Pitts more of a "receiver", here's the list of WRs taken in the top 6 since 2000 (expanded to top 6 to add julio jones). 2017 - Corey Davis (5) 2015 - Amari Cooper (4) 2014 - Sammy Watkins (4) 2012 - Justin Blackmon (4) 2011 - AJ Green (4), Julio Jones (6) 2007 - Calvin Johnson (2) 2005 - Braylon Edwards (3) 2004 - Larry Fitzgerald (3) 2003 - Charles Rodgers (2), Andre Johnson (3) 2000 - Peter Warrick (4) Even here it's not a tremendously impressive list considering we are talking 21 years of draft history. There are possibly 4 eventual hall of famers on the list, but I don't think any of them have actually won a super bowl, let alone had any meaningful and prolonged playoff success. I guess Watkins has a ring, but that's on his 3rd team as a role player, not a stud WR. so i guess maybe if pitts turns into the next calvin johnson or larry fitzgerald, aj green or julio jones, maybe he's worth a top 5 pick. but to give up all the draft capital to get him???
