    Jets new uniform leaked online?

    Interesting because they just published the article today, 1/23/2019. I'm not saying you're wrong but obviously they didn't care to publish it knowing it was false.....or they just didn't do the research ahead of time. http://dailysnark.com/potential-new-uniforms-of-the-new-york-jets-leak-online/

    Jets new uniform leaked online?

    My reaction is sorta like when Michael J. Fox came back from the future on that floating skateboard wearing that dorky futuristic outfit. Like maybe it will be cool and feel normal in 20 years but not right now. It's like going from this... to this...
  3. Not sure how legit this is.... http://dailysnark.com/potential-new-uniforms-of-the-new-york-jets-leak-online/

    You're running the Jets

    I don't take it until I'm on the clock and see who is available. If the Jets are sitting at #3 and Nick Bosa is still on the Board then Jax better come up with 2900 points.

    Super Bowl III DVD??

    I just ordered a DVD of the "Rams Super Bowl walkthrough practice from 2001". Got it off eBay from some guy outside Boston named Gil Melichick for $29.99.

    Building a team through free agency

    A lot of teams feel that way, and a lot of things have to go right for it to happen. We're assuming that Gase is successful, that Darnold continues developing into a Top 10 NFL QB, that Gregg Williams successfully transforms the defense, that the Jets draft well for the next two year. IF all of those things happen then yes, the Rams approach of adding a few questionable but talented players could get a team to the Super Bowl. Don't you think adding one or two players to the Chiefs, Cowboys, Texans, Colts, etc. could do the same thing for them? They're much closer than the Jets to contending. Heck, even the Browns are closer given the talent they have on that team. There are 29 teams in the NFL who aren't in the Super Bowl. All of them are going to make moves (new Head Coaches, cutting players, signing free agents, drafting players). And all 29 teams will feel like they're better come August. Only about half of them will be better than they were in 2018.

    Building a team through free agency

    This. Build the foundation and the culture first. When you're knocking on the door of contending (a 10-win team trying to get to 12 the following season), that's when you add one or two high-risk/high-reward players (ex. Santonio Holmes) to try to push you over the top. But you need a locker room that can sustain that type of addition. It has to be a culturally healthy team with good attitudes and work ethics. It's the difference between adding a questionable guy who gives the team a minor cold/cough versus giving a susceptible team the flu and taking it off the tracks. I agree that we're at least a year away from these types of additions. After all, we just ridded ourselves of the Wilkerson types here.

    2019 Free Agent Tracker

    Larry Fitzgerald re-signed with the Cardinals last night.
  10. Well, he'd also have at least 2 Super Bowl rings which always helps a person's case for induction. Even just getting to Super Bowls helps. It's a similar issue for Klecko. Great player, never got to a Super Bowl. It's a perception thing sometimes unfortunately because both Klecko and Mawae deserve to be in the HOF. Look at Dwight Stephenson from the Miami Dolphins. Played Center for only 8 seasons (114 games), considered the best Center in the NFL during those years and made 5 Pro Bowls but played in 2 Super Bowls. He was inducted into the HOF in 1998. Mawae was an 8X Pro Bowler and 7X All Pro (three times 1st Team), and was named to the NFL 2000's All Decade Team.....but never reached a Super Bowl. I think about 8 Centers in the "Modern Era" (post 1960) have been inducted. Mawae deserves to be there.
  11. For 20 years we were spoiled with elite Center play between Mawae and Mangold. We need to find our next great Center!
  12. I agree with what other posters have stated earlier. Anderson isn't a true WR1 but the Jets can't afford to lose him. This idea that we should hope the Raiders grab Anderson and the Jets get their #27 pick in return leaves the Jets doing what at WR? Taking a WR at #27 that is a bigger unknown than Anderson? The Jets aren't talented OR deep at WR so why hope to lose Anderson and then try to replace him with a lesser FA or by drafting a player in what is said above to be a weak receiver class? I'd also submit that Darnold and Anderson really started to find a groove this season, particularly at the end. Some of Darnold's best "highlight reel" completions were to Robby where Anderson was, in many cases, making difficult over the shoulder catches, scrambling around the end zone in Buffalo, or leaping high to grab a ball on the sideline while getting both feet in bounds. Let's be careful about hoping the best playmaker on the team ends up somewhere else. And it would make for some lousy trivia when asked who Sam Darnold threw his first TD pass to in the NFL.

    Mac has to trade down...

    Or even just trade up TO us. Moving one spot won't net a ton of draft capital but it does do 3 things... 1. You get a return (say a 2nd or 3rd round pick) 2. You ensure that the position player you want will still be there at #4, getting the guy you would have taken at #3 anyway. (see caveat below) 3. Taking that guy at #4 becomes cheaper (even if just slightly). HOWEVER, be careful....the Raiders also need a pass rusher to replace Mack. If I'm the Raiders I'd start talking up Kyler Murray, swap picks with the Jets and then they take Josh Allen.

    Mac has to trade down...

    Also, when it comes to QBs...I actually think that for the first time in a while it's not a position that is severely lacking in depth in the NFL. If a good QB averages a career of at least 10 years (and many are more like 15+) then in theory you only need about 2-3 successful QBs coming into the league each year on average. In recent years we've had Jared Goff, Wentz, Trubisky, Mahomes, Deshaun Watson, Dak Prescott and now Mayfield, Darnold, Lamar Jackson, Allen and Rosen enter the league. I'm not saying all of them are great but just about all of them seem like they'll be longterm starters in the NFL. That's 11 new QBs just in the past 3 seasons. There were some very lean QB drafts over the past decade (2013 - 2015) but the past 2-3 have been inordinately good, much better than average. Heck, even the 2012 Draft has produced 5-6 starters, 4 of which have been very successful (Luck, Foles, Russel Wilson, Cousins). The teams that have been QB starved for a long time have all started to find their QBs. The next phase of QB drafting in my opinion will be marked by the teams who've been riding great ones for more than decade trying to find replacements (Roethlisberger, Eli Manning, Rivers, Brees, Brady, Rodgers, etc.). Heck, even guys like Stafford, Matt Ryan, etc. are looking at 11 years in the league now. With a thin group of QBs in the Draft this year (but better group next year) we may not see the power trade-ups moves in 2019 like we saw last year. Teams might go the route that Denver did with Case Keenum and try to sign an above average, experienced guy like Bridgewater, Foles or Flacco to get them to the 2020 draft. But mediocrity only gets you so far. The Jets know this all too well.....you need to either be really good or really bad, otherwise you're stuck in the middle with guys like Tannehill, Andy Dalton, etc. taking you to 8-8 seasons.

    Mac has to trade down...

    ...and Teddy Bridgewater. I think the Jets may need to be willing to take less than full value in a trade down. Let's say (purely hypothetical), that a trade down from #3 to #10 with Denver SHOULD net you Denver's #10 pick, an additional 2nd rounder, 3rd rounder and another 2nd rounder in the 2020 Draft. If Denver offers it's #10, a 2nd, a 3rd and a 2020 4th then maybe you take it. This is especially the case if your Board suggests that there isn't much of a drop off or difference between the players you have ranked 8, 9, 10, etc. this year.
