  1. His first 2 years with this team, Tannenbaum built a solid team with an offensive line, running game, and brought in veteran WR's to help Mark out. It was smart, the way you help a young QB out. There was a lot of excitement with Mark including the first pass he threw to Clowney down the sideline in preseason from our end zone. After that we drafted defense defense defense and stopped providing the necessary tools for Mark to succeed. We learned he is not the player that makes those better around him but that the team makes him look better which is fine. Tannebaum failed to follow up on that philosophy. If he won a super bowl for the Jets lets face it, his face would be on the Mount Rushmore of Jets QB's and not remembered for his face imprinted on the buttocks of Brandon Moore.
  2. I love the list of What ifs...The reality is each player/coach ended up doing well where they eventually went and we can only assume the same success would have happened here. The one thing I would change would be one simple play....The Keith Byers fumble in Denver. I believe we would have gone on to win that Super Bowl against Atlanta.
  3. Under Armour should really take over the contract and design the uniforms. Nike just doesn't do it for me.
  4. What Joe Douglas has done is add significant size to our Offensive line and WR corp. I like the potential of this team with fire from the undrafted and one year contracts.
  5. One of the intriguing scenarios I would love to see is Cager, Mims, and Campbell on the Goal line Red zone. I think we found hidden gems in Cager and Campbell who Sam will love throwing the ball up to.
  6. Im fine with the pick and the philosophy behind it. This is similar to what Ron Wolf did for many years in Green Bay. In fact he tried to do it here with the Jets as well before getting the head job in GB. He drafts a QB every year and hopes that he hits on one. build the pipe line no matter what stage your current starter is in including elite level. The Patriots have done it as well with Brady as your starter..Either way if the kid develops like many of the QBs drafted by these other teams and you develop him to trade him for draft capital. https://www.acmepackingcompany.com/nfl-draft-2019-packers/2019/4/1/18288220/the-packers-stand-to-benefit-from-returning-to-a-yearly-qb-draft-strategy-in-2019 30 With uncertainty around DeShone Kizer, the 2019 NFL Draft might be a prime time for Green Bay to re-employ the Ron Wolf strategy of the 1990s in developing quarterbacks. By Shawn Wagner Apr 1, 2019, 9:00am CDT Share this story Share this on Facebook (opens in new window) Share this on Twitter (opens in new window) SHAREAll sharing options In his first offseason as General Manager of the Green Bay Packers, Brian Gutekunst shared at least one similarity with former GM Ron Wolf: he traded for a quarterback castoff. DeShone Kizer, acquired from the Cleveland Browns after just one season with the team, was a once-regarded first round talent that dropped to the second. Green Bay was reportedly interested in Kizer during that 2017 NFL Draft and made the surprising move to trade for the Notre Dame product once he became available. Likewise, Wolf shocked many Packers fans when he dealt for Brett Favre, another player that slipped to the second round of the draft and had worn out his welcome in Atlanta. But while Kizer has not come close to displaying Favre-like ability in the pros, Gutekunst’s decision did represent a return to prioritizing the backup quarterback position, even with an established starter at the helm. The Packers selected a quarterback in seven of Wolf’s 10 years in charge of the roster, in addition to trading for Favre in the 1992 offseason. In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Wolf described his reasoning for the strategy. But while Favre continued to be available on the field, the philosophy shifted a little when Mike Sherman took the driver’s seat with just one quarterback in three drafts, and continued even under Wolf disciple Ted Thompson. Thompson drafted the position sporadically, selecting five quarterbacks in 13 drafts. However, three of those occurrences came within his first four years as GM. The last time Green Bay drafted a signal caller was Brett Hundley in 2015. The benefits to an annual quarterback draftee are noted. Most important is the insurance of grooming a capable spot starter in case of injury. The Packers have really struggled with this in particular over the past five years outside of Matt Flynn’s heroic moments of 2010 and 2011. The low-cost talent acquired via undrafted and street free agency to back up Aaron Rodgers was a liability, especially as Hundley failed to show progress after two full years of prior seasoning. Meanwhile, trade collateral is an added advantage with drafting quarterbacks. While the hope is that there will be minimal chances for a backup to showcase his skills, a backup’s preseason action and opportunities when pressed into action can provide later trade value. For every Jay Barker of the Wolf era that fizzled in the pros, there were players like Matt Hasselbeck, whose value appreciated over time. Identifying a franchise quarterback will never be an approach that goes out of style and, in fact, the cost of finding one is only rising. Although Wolf called drafting quarterbacks “blind luck,” he was almost 50-50 in finding a future starting quarterback in the later rounds and selling them later. With Favre stabilizing the starting spot, here is a look at the return value of Wolf’s quarterback selections. Packers quarterbacks drafted under Ron Wolf Draft Year Round Player Value to Green Bay 1992 9 Ty Detmer 7 appearances in 4 years under Favre; left as free agent and made 25 NFL starts 1993 5 Mark Brunell Traded to Jaguars for 3rd and 4th round picks 1995 5 Jay Barker Did not make team 1996 7 Kyle Wachholtz Converted to tight end after cut as a QB 1997 7 Ronnie McAda Did not make team 1998 6 Matt Hasselbeck Traded to Seahawks for 3rd round pick and swapped 1st round pick (higher) 1999 4 Aaron Brooks Traded to Saints with TE Lamont Hall for LB K.D. Williams & 3rd round pick With Kizer failing to impress in 2018 and undrafted Tim Boyle sliding into the third quarterback role as a rookie, the Packers are in position to re-initiate an annual third-day, quarterback-drafting strategy this year. Northwestern’s Clayton Thorson, Washington State’s Gardner Minshew, and Vanderbilt’s Kyle Shurmur, the son of New York Giants head coach Pat, make up three of a number of potential prospects available in the fourth round and beyond. Even if Green Bay does not find a diamond in the rough, a late-round pick could provide valuable training camp competition to Green Bay’s current depth. But if the Packers do, they could bolster their roster in both the short and long terms. As Gutekunst continues to add competition and increase the talent level at a variety of positions on the Packers’ roster in 2019, quarterback is not one that should be neglected with 10 April selections. And while drafting quarterbacks may indeed be blind luck, the value derived from the Packers’ strategy of the 1990s was far from it.
  7. This is the kind of guy that will become a fan favorite like a Victor Green. He looks like a man amongst boys out there and he willl show up on every defensive play. If Williams already has a plan for him to be successful that is awesome and amazing coaching. If you are telling me we got a guy that compares to Khalil Mack as an undrafted free agent....Genius!
  8. I recorded the Senior Bowl and the East West Shrine game. I love going back this week to watch the players the Jets select from the draft...Praline rb, Mims, and Mann the punter were at Senior Bowl. WB Morgan was at shrine game. This is where Phil Savage and front office do a great job scouting. Focusing on our guys makes it fun Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  9. I was just listening to his interview on NYJETS.com and I found it interesting that the Jets were his only official interview. Love the raw emotion from the family video.
  10. PM me info. I will jump on for Jets picks
  11. I was actually hoping Ceasar Ruiz (Center) fell to us in the second round but would be thrilled to add Cushenburry at Center from LSU. Take his teammate Lewis in the third.
  12. While I love the WR's still available....Interesting that Houston Tackle (Jones) is still on the board...I mean
