    2021: #2, #23

    2022: First round pick, Second round pick. If necessary, a third rounder.

    After trading Darnold, you recoup at least a second rounder, which leaves you with:

    2021: #34, #66, #87, etc and sh*tload of cap space

    2022: First, the Darnold 2, a third, etc.

    Here's a thought: Why not do what Detroit did and exploit some cap space? The fact that the Jets can take on the Mercellus and Johnson contracts seems like something the Jets can offer that Carolina and Miami can't.

    It's not rocketed science. If you shout at the draft and demand a qb when there is no qb, you'll get a lump of coal 

     

    The top of the draft is not a place to consider need. That's called reaching 

    Your posts are called reaching. Nobody thinks the Jets only need one tackle. Get ahold of yourself man.

    Or, like I said, you could just get advice from medical people vs the internet.

    There are long term antibody tests underway (as long term as you can have with something new).  My point is it is dangerous to tell people, you had Covid you are fine.  Not everyone is have a long term response I have a friend that is in a study, he has been good for 10 + months. But one of his family members has a really low count, they were Covid positive in the fall. They had no protection already 4 months later, so they got the vaccine.

    My son had it in November, so when his group is up, he will get the antibody test and then decide. I see a lot of people saying I had Covid I am fine and it makes no sense to me because they can measure it with a simple blood test.

    So worth noting on this, I am 99% positive I had Covid twice. I had Covid hands in Feb/March and a weird cold. At that time Covid hands/toes was still relatively new so there was not a ton of research on it. About a month later it comes out that Covid hands and toes are a thing, so I took an antibody test which came up negative but at that time the antibody tests weren’t as reliable. 
     

    Fast forward 9 months and I tested positive with Covid (presumably again), and had the same symptoms, hands and toes and all. My skin was exactly the same as it had been 9 months prior and that has literally been the only other time I have had splotchy tingly skin on my hands and feet like that. Point being you can most certainly get this sh*t twice within a relatively short period of time. It’s possible my second bout was with one of the variants but who knows.

    3 years 36K miles, friend.  Eat my lease.

    SAR I

    Leasing repetitively for decades ensures that not only are you always covered under factory warranty but you are also in a brand new car just as you're starting to get bored.  Two of my BMW's are leased 18 months apart, and it takes 3 months to preorder and have one built to my specifications in Germany, meaning that every 1.5 years I'm starting the build process and configuring a brand new car.

    The Sorrento is the family car which gets beat up a lot. Zero care into it. I have been thinking about upgrading the Sorrento to a Telluride or Sub Ascent but I have two big dogs and they just beat the hell out of the thing, I'm not sure it's worth it to spend $40k or continue up with lease payments for something that's definitely going to get thrashed.  

    I have a newish Crosstrek which I take better care of and serves adventure purposes awesome, but I own it because Subarus retain their value well. BMW's are amazing machines though for sure.

  5. All of these guys are ******* morons. I don't care what the situation is, what you are saying to me, or even if I think I'll win, I am not getting in a fight in a men's bathroom. I don't want to roll around in piss and regret.

    That said football players thinking they can beat up grapplers and then finding out very quickly that they can't is becoming my favorite past-time in America.

    Don't forget one of those 3rds was part of the Adams trade. 

    Darnold and Adams on year 4 of their rookie contracts + Zach Wilson + a 3rd

    for 25 yr old Deshaun Watson

    I'm baffled there's a single Jets fan alive that's actually thinking: "Nah."

    I think it's more the idea that the Jets have a tremendous amount of draft capital for the next two years and it is probably their greatest opportunity to build a complete team on the cheap. Which they've never done. Those people have a point. 

    On the other hand, the Jets are dumb and draft like sh*t. The above scenario is built on they assumption that that they'll get everything right on those picks. Which they have never done. People who point that aspect out also have a point.

    Alright, I’ll give you two scenarios and you tell me which is better:

    1. Jets trade the #2 to the Panthers for #8 and a second this year, and a #1 and #2 next year. Jets take Devonta Smith at 8, and whatever at 23.

    or

    2. Jets trade #2, #23, and a 2022 first and third for Deshaun Watson. 
     

    Q: In two years, which trade leaves the Jets in a better position to win a title?

    The problem is there is absolutely zero precedent to go off of. Yes, QB's have been traded before but there is usually an injury involved in the mix here or some other weird factor. None of that exists on this one. We know that giving up the entire farm for a higher pick comes with a lot of risks, but this isn't a pick, and Watson is this elite guy that isn't even in his prime yet. The whole thing is so odd. I have no idea what the fair compensation is and more importantly I really have no clue if it's worth it. Trade for him and it leaves zero margin for error. Don't trade for him and it could be equally an all-time bad move. ****.

    Wasn't that the point?  They were losing pretty well with Gase.  If it aint broke, don't fix it.  I get that Gase may have felt he was "coaching for his job" but wouldn't an interim coach do the same?  I think teams often have that bump when they switch coaches and win a game or two. 

    They were millimeters within wins multiple times. The team was playing their asses off leading up to the LA game. It was obvious they were going to luck into a win with the way they were playing at least to oh I dunno anyone that’s been watching the Jets for the last 25 years

  9. It’s weird how this issue gets treated so binary. The Jets can use the #2 pick on a QB and also use their other draft picks and cap space to acquire players. The problem isn’t using the #2 pick on a quarterback, it’s using the other assets to acquire players that are good, which the Jets suck at.
