  1. Brandin Cooks is the move at 18. Better version of Tavon Austin at 18, what's not to like?

    And Cooks will probably be there when we pick unlike last year when we would have had to trade up to get Austin. I'm ok with this scenario.

  2. A starter at CB would've gone a long way with me. Seems like they settled on Colon after not landing anyone at guard, and didn't even settle at CB after releasing Cro. Didn't even sniff at a safety when their secondary was one of the worst in the league last year. I don't know. I get the value-based shopping. I haven't bought a new car since 1987. I'm not sure how this $27M in cap space figures moving forward, either, when they have to spend a certain percentage of the cap in the next couple years.

    I'm not against the guy or anything. Like I said, I love all the draft picks. I just haven't drunk the kool-aid at the cult of Idzik party, yet. People seem to be inferring some philosophy, convinced he's got this plan and it's going to play out at some future time. I'm gonna wait until I start seeing it actually play out before subscribing, that's all.



    I completely understand your frustration.  I wish if he's gonna keep that make cap space to at least extend Wilk because the man deserve to get paid.  It'll at least be interesting to see how our team does with so many picks.  You saw that stat about Rex and the jets having only 13 picks in his first 3 years?  What a contrast this is.

  3. Tannenbaum sucked. I think we all get that. I love all the draft picks, but otherwise, I'm not completely sold that the opposite of Tannenbaum in free agency is the way to go. Seemed like there might be a little middle ground there.

    Idzik may not say mini-draft, but he must be thinking it. Right?


    Are you not happy with us getting Decker, who was regarded as the best FA WR out there?  Given I'm used to us making more of a splash as well.  When you say middle ground, I'm guessing you're talking about us signing a CB since we lost Cro right?  Would that have counted as middle ground?

    I don't know about that.  Here's both their NFL scouting reports:



    Seems like both have a lack of understanding and utilization of a full route tree because of the simplistic offenses they were in, but isn't that a majority of college football teams programs.  Also, Hill had about half as many catches in all his years at Georgia as Evans had in his freshman year alone.  Hill seemed to be more just a deep threat when he was coming out where as Evans seems to be more of a possession receiver who lacks the top end speed Hill has but has better hands.

  5. Michael Vick is not a good human being. Yes he paid the price for what he did, but what he did was uncalled for. I understand about second chances but why does he have to have a chance here? I just can't root for this guy.

    Then don't root for the guy. Is it possible to root for the team and not the player?

  6. We've rehabilitated others. Maybe a change of scenery will work... hopefully we get a chance to find out.

    True. And if it works out that 3rd round pick doesn't seem like a big deal. Maybe with a new GM, a familiar OC and a new attitude from Rex, the situation is less likely to impose.

  7. So you have fault with being able to acquire him, or that he is a diva? Make up your mind so we can figure out what it is we are discussing. Cause you're flip flopping.

    The Holmes trade has soured me on the thought of trading for another WR with questionable locker room attitude.

  8. I'm still not sure he'd be available at 18, but I would love to have this guy.  Anyone watch him in college?  Is he as good as advertised?



    Draft Insider Tony Pauline confirms that Texas A&M WR Mike Evans has an official visit scheduled with the New York Jets.

    The Jets are desperate for a play making receiver with Mike Evans skill set. Evans dominates at the catch point and uses his size to box out smaller defenders. The Jets need to stay committed to surrounding Geno Smith with weapons if they want him to succeed in New York. The 6-foot-5, 225 pounder could be the true No.1 wide out that the Jets offense has been missing. New York is sitting at the No.18 spot, and would most likely have to move up in the top-15 to get a chance to draft Evans.
