    In all honesty, they should have. It's likely they offered at least that amount since the season ended so his value to the team didn't go up between November and now.

    Then again, they may have approached him with those numbers back then and that didn't get it done.

    They may have.  You are right.  

    With the other signings, the value of all average to above average qbs went up a lot

    Fitz is what he is.  Part of what you pay for with an Osweiler is that he will continue to grow, that he isnt a fully developed player.  

    Fitz is a 32 going on 33 year old QB who just had his career year that you pray can duplicate going forward

    I agree with this.  However 33 isn't old for a qb. You can't overpay for a career year and he has a longer track record which will keep his salary down.   We aren't getting him for 7-8m a year though.  If we wanted that we should have signed him in November.

  3. Hate to say it... but if Bradford and Osweiler are worth 18M per year...  Fitz isn't far behind.  He has a longer body of work which could help us save a little bit, but Osweiler 18M?  Come on if he can get it playing 6-7 games with the best defense in 5-10 years winning the games for him, so can Fitz.

    The media is a JOKE! Seriously, you give me a scenario or any team giving Fitz 2 years 36 million,lmao, AINT HAPPENING!

    Go Mac! Go Bowles! Go Geno if we have to! Go Jets! Say no to a grossly overpaid stop gap 33 year old QB that couldn't make 1 play we needed to get to the playoffs.

    They gave it to Bradford so nothing is impossible 

  5. This is how you answer this question.  

    My our team is 8-2 and your starter just got hurt and will be out 3-4 weeks.   Is your backup capable of going 2-2 during that time to keep your team alive?   He has a strong team behind him obviously or they wouldn't be 8-2 so he doesn't have to do it all himself. 

    If the answer is no, then there is no need to keep the guy.  Cheap or not.  If so, hold on to him for dear life because as a backup qb he's valuable. 

    The answer with smith is Hell no.

    Yeah, not even close. Fitzptrick was bad agains the Bills, he is a journeyman QB making backup money. Cam was AWFUL, missing wide receivers all over the place, no awareness of a pass rush that was dominating him, whining and complaining, fumbled 2 times leading to TD's, he was as bad as a QB can be.

    Point is I know what it is like if it happened to the Jets

  7. For all of you that say he being an a$$hole caused him to not get voted in....

    what does being an a$$hole have to do with how he played on the field?  The guy belongs in.  We have all sorts of criminals in the HOF but because he didn't make the medias life easy he doesn't get in?   Ridiculous. 

    It's time for a new voting system.

  8. Agreed the Jets did it before Denver did.

    agreed.  The game yesterday was almost identical to jets victory.  NE didn't really score an offensive td until the last minute of the game in both.  Against us they scored defensively.  Against them they got a break and scored from the 15.   We dominated the play and so did Denver.  Both made Brady look scared and human.  The only difference is they needed 2 against Denver because the kicking God missed a xp.

  9. Whether I want to believe it or not?  How do any of us know anything other than a guess.  He didn't beat anyone, he wasn't arrest for a serious crime.  He's not a habitual criminal or a loud mouth lockerroom cancer.  I don't think his value is diminished.  And you're ignoring my main point, the Jets won't trade him if they even wanted to for less that what he's worth.  Doesn't make sense, they're under no need to trade him.  He's one of their best players, is cheap and under their control.  

    driving 143 mph under the influence with a minor in the car that is 12 is a serious crime.   At worst, it's a serious lack in judgement.  Those sort of things hurt trade value. 

  10. Yup.  I don't blame Tompkins for the loss.  But I also had confirmed that he's not a clutch/money player.  

    There are few opportunities to make a name for yourself in the NFL.  That was one of them for Tompkins.  Defender or not, if he wants to be a star, Tompkins needed to hold onto that pass and score.

    definitely agree.  We didn't lose because of Tompkins.  I don't even think we lost because of Fitzpatrick.  I think the D plan of playing zone and playing 10 yards off all day just gave them free first down after first down

  11. Butler simply made a great play on the ball and knocked it away with his shoulder before Thompkins had a chance to do anything.  If anything Thompkins should be commended for not short arming the ball as the defender closed in on him.  I like Thompkins and I think he is getting a bad rap on this play.  He was wide open and if Fitz had got the ball to him a second or two earlier he makes that catch.  Of course it should never have come down to that in the first place. 


    I think if Tompkins was aware of his situation and was focused on catching the ball more than going 70 yards, he could have made that catch, went OB, and we have the ball on the 30.  

    Butler made a very good play.  However, I still think Tompkins could have made the play, either my jumping up to catch the ball and getting out, or just by holding onto it (much harder, Butler went right for it).  While it would have been an unbelievable play if he holds it and scores, it wasn't an unrealistic play.  

    It may have looked like the defender made a great play, and the result was great, but it was VERY risky.  Make the hit and stop him on the 30, and you don't lose.  He went for the knockout and it worked..... if it doesn't, they lose.   Of course, they were playing with nothing to lose anyway.
