  1. What does Mike Shanahan groom...running backs. Which running back is slated to go in the mid 1st round. Lendale White. Right now Denver has the possibility of RON DAYNE being their running back.

    Just in case some the older members posting here missed that I'm going to emphasis that again: RON DAYNE

    That's all that needs to be said...pick up White, he'll be a workhorse and solid through and through...there's gotta be a reason why he was in there replacing the future #1 pick at RB when Bush was doing all his other things. White scored the TD's last year...not Bush. Bush got the all-purpose yards.

  2. Mel Kipers a dumbass. I thought I would change my views on him when he had us taking Hawk if D Brick is off the board. Then he talks about us draftin Michael Huff. WTF our secondary is fine.

    Mel Kiper= horrible draft analyst with stupid hair.

    Despite his stupid hair, if you could feel confident about David Barrett being our shut down corner...I would love to hear it. I could beat Barrett on a crossing pattern or a deep out. He's was fortunate to take on the #2 wr the last few years and even then, was still only respectable at CB.

    Drafting down is still the best policy...CB or not...its what we need to do.

  3. Right there with you bro, if White does fall to #17 we should take him or Maroney. If we get another 1st rounder for Abe we can use that on either Vernon Davis, Leonard Pope or Marcus McNeill. We can easily rebuild the O-line with the 3 Round 2 picks. Mangold, Whitworth and O'Callaghan in Round 2?

    Ding Ding...perhaps someone else who shared intelligence on this board :yahoo:

  4. He claims to be a big NY sports fan, but maybe he just has an unusually pessimistic attitude towards things.

    Well doesn't the pessimistic attitude towards things seem like an obvious pointer to the fact that he must at least be a Jet Fan...they kill us every year:bag:

  5. Not like im saying pick this guy up at 17, but just throwing out the Lendale White might be around there at 17...and although I KNOW we need OL help and a CB...we can get mangold at 36, and another at one of our other 2 2nd round picks...rebuild...but if he is there at 17, it is one of those situations where you need to pick him up...he is just that talented of a back

  6. Duckett is an awsome player, a bruiser who can run, basically a poor mans Bettis but can get injured at times. I would take Duckett and a 2nd rounder for Abe, but our FO isnt thinking like that, they are saying a first or nothing. I do like how the offers are starting to get heated and now teams will start to throw out better deals since they know the Jets FO is playing hardball. I actually like how our Fo is handeling things, they arent messing around anymore, you have to love this new hardline approach.

    I agree and its finally time that we don't have a push over for a GM...I say hold out as long as possible bc right now, they are going to only improve each of their offers to get Abe

  7. We don't need a DE, we have Ellis and Kimo...with the semi bust dewayne in the middle plus the mega bust bryan thomas also as an end...why don't we not commit another #1 to the line until we finish with our current ones.

    pick up something we need, debrickshaw or leinart

  8. This is from ESPN Insiders Rumor Mill

    "Jets pursuing Hopkins; Titans return possible?

    <Mar. 13> The Jets were deep into discussions with agent Mark Bartelstein about bringing OT Hopkins to New York, according to a report in Newsday, but the Nashville City Paper indicates that the Titans are still in the running to re-sign the veteran.

    Hopkins also visited the Falcons and Buccaneers."

  9. Ramsey couldn't make it in Washington, there is no way that he could make it in NY. We all admire Penny's determination, but it only goes so far. Harrington has not produced although he's had one of the most potent young wr corps in the league (C. Rogers, R. Williams, Mike Williams). They have 3 first round picks at WR and Kevin Jones who is a superstar to be RB and he still couldn't produce. Even though I like that guy, if he couldn't make it in Detroit, a town used to losing, do you think he could make it in NY, I don't think so. IMO draft a QB

    1. Leinart, I don't care what talent he has surrounded himself with, he's still produced

    2. Young, Wunderlich test or not I see how a player performs on game day. He carried Texas for 2 years on his back with little or no talent around him, and led them to a championship and Rose Bowl victory. And any doubts about his ability to play under pressure? He played for Texas, one of the Top3 colleges for football in regards to fan base and he also put up two of the greatest performances in College Football history in the Rose Bowl 2 years ago and the Championship Game last year. He can deal with the NY pressure and although he isn't the traditional qb that I like either for the Jets, he can perform.

    Cutler, Great combine qb which is great and all, but playing in a small school it could be hard to get used to the NY pressure and the soon praise of being the future of the franchise. Although he has pure talent, I don't know how well he would perform

  10. If the Jets were to trade Abraham for the #15 White would be a great pickup at that spot. Not like Martin isn't solid, but he's also aging. If Leinhart and White are picked up you have two young superstars on offense and that not only is good for the media, but it would be a good start for the team
