    But you are not signing a $72MM contract, so you would still be a better signing.  CanadaSteve for the vet minimum or Trumaine Johnson for $72 mil.  You would be the better signing.

    I would bring an intensity to the field.  Heart, desire, and a lack of ability being overwhelmed by even the slowest of lineman.  I bet I couldn't run down Beacham if he picked up a Bell fumble.

    I agree, but you still have to use a premium pick on a WR. 

    Without Anderson, the Jets WRs are as bad as any unit in the league. You have a nice slot guy in Crowder and . . . ? I guess you can resign an older Thomas on the cheap? Then what? 

    The bottom line is that you still have to address that position in the draft in a meaningful way. 

    Again, I have read from multiple draft gurus that this year could see as many as 20 WR's with either a 1st or 2nd round grade.  WR could be addressed in 2nd round or with the first pick in the 3rd.

    Jets fans act like it’s there money. We have been way under cap for years. Great results, right? If you draft terrible, you gotta spend.

    Its not about it being our money, its called the salary cap.  You can't sign everyone with less than $100 million.

    No way in hell these types of WR's will not help Sam Darnold succeed in the NFL. 

    We need an elite #1 WR. 

    Some experts are suggesting there could be as many as 20 1st and 2nd round graded WR's in this draft.  You could possibly be finding 1st round talent in the 4th round this year.

    Best Safety  in the NFL best player on the NY Jets. 

    Sadly some fans are so scorned from losing here for so long they don't appreciate greatness. 

    Certain fans just like to complain about something to verify their existence.

    Sorry dude, he's not the best safety in the NFL...

    Best safety on the Jets?  Sure.

     

    The question is: Is this team better paying a safety $15 million a year?  I don't think he makes enough of an impact to do that.  This is on Mac (yet again) picking a safety when we needed a QB.

  6. In some draft circles, it has been suggested this draft is so deep with WR'S,there could be at least 20 receivers with a 1st or 2nd round grade.

    We don't need to get Jerry Jeudy to have a good option.  That said, this might be a good year to double-dip if Robby Anderson walks in free agency.  With having Crowder already on the team, and if Vyncient Smith develops at all, a lower-tier signing, and a double-dip at the draft, things could look good at the position.

    HOWEVER.....the key in this is a good lower-tier signing AND if the draft picks develop.  Our last two GM's were not very good at, you know, drafting quality players.

    I read it right.  Dumping Bell and his salary for 4th would be a big win for the Jets.  Getting the 7th back is basically irrelevant. 

    Bottom line, we could do more with the money saved than the likelihood of the 4th round pick hitting.

    MIKEY MAC!  We didn't know you were Fidelio Jet....How's things now that you are unemployed :)

    Due to other discussion today, I'm curious what people honestly think.

    WHAT IF: 

    What if the 2018 New York Jets had chosen to sit firm at pick # 6 in the 2018 Draft, and retained their three 2nd round picks (#37 & #49 in 2018 and #34 in 2019).

    Instead of drafting Sam Darnold at #3 overall, the Jets instead chose to draft:

    2018 #6:    Josh Allen, QB
    2018 #37:  Courtland Sutton, WR
    2018 #49:  Connor Williams, Guard
    2019 #34:  Dalton Risner, O-Tackle

    What would be the big differences between what happened and this alternate scenario?  For purposes of this I'm not changing any other move the team made.

    Would our record be 11-21 combined in 2018 & 2019?  Would it be better, or worse, and why?

    Would our Offenses have been ranked 29th and 32nd, respectively, in 2018 & 2019?  Would it be better, or worse, and why?

    Would our outlook for 2020 be better?  Worse?  Why?

    Would we be looking at WR and O-Line in the 2020 Draft?  Or other positions?  And why?

    Thread is admittedly 100% speculative and calls for opinion.  No answer is wrong, and no one can truly know. 

    So have fun, speculate, and tell us what you think this alternate universe might look like today. :)

     

    My only argument is this: There is a presumption that Mac would have been smart enough to do all that.

    Its the same with Mahomes.  Imagine if we drafted the position we needed over a safety?  Would it have mattered?  Mahomes stepped into a great team and Andy Reid to boot.  I have no faith that Mac would have all of a sudden learned how to draft and done something.  What does he do with the first rounder in 2018?  What does he do with picks 37 and 49?  What does he do with pick 34 in 2019?

    I don't think much of Allen's upside, so I would not think we would be better.  However, the one I wonder about is Mahomes.  I mean, imagine if we drafted him (and I FULLY admit I was against it), and still finished where we did?  Imagine the picks we could have got at six, given everyone was hot for all the QB prospects that year.  Imagine if Mac all of a sudden learns to draft, nothing changes but we have all the picks back?  Would he go Mahomes that year, then go Mike McGlinchey in the first in 2018, followed by Braden Smith  and Christian Kirk in the 2nd round.  Then, in 2019 he uses that 2nd rounder on Cody Ford?

    So many possibilities, so little ability at the GM helm drafting all those years.

    Lets hope Douglas has a solid draft this year and next.  That will go a long way in turning this team into a competitive franchise moving forward.

    The Jets offensive line is in dire straits. They can't afford not to invest in the offensive line in free agency. Tell me the last time the Jets invested in a "big ticket" free agent who played on the offensive line. Then tell me how that signing kept the Jets in a sh*t hole. 

    I can't tell you the last time the Jets signed a big free agent OL.  But I can tell you about the QB's, the RB's, the WR's, the CB's, the Edge Rushers, and the DL which we signed to "big ticket" free agent dollars and they didn't work out.

    I never said don't sign people.  I said, don't go after the Porsche dressed up as a Ferrari, when all you need is a Honda Civic.

    You get 7 plus new players every year in the draft.  Find a way to do that well every year and this team, or any team for that matter, will always be in contention.


  10. 1.  Jamal Adams is a pro-bowl player.  Doesn't matter if you don't like him, he has earned that moniker.

    2. He didn't get to choose where he got picked.  Its not his fault our team took a safety at #6 when we needed a QB.

    3. He is a vocal leader.

    4. He is ALSO a safety; a position you do not pay top dollar for, unless you are either Ronnie Lott or Troy Polamalu.  He is neither.

    5. CB's and Edge Rushers have FAR more influence regarding a successful defense....of which, we have neither.

     

    Here is where the debate is:      What makes this team BETTER:

    A. Handing Jamal Adams $12-15 million a year for the next five years, knowing we have to pay Sam soon

    B. Getting a capable safety, not of Adams skillset, but decent at a price half that of Adams, and then have potentially two high draft picks this year to help rebuild, and have a few million in the koffers to pay our starting franchise QB in about 2 years?

    The reality is the Jets will sign a big ticket free agent. Joe Douglas can't do it all in the draft after Mac's neglected the offensive line for his entire tenure with the Jets.

    So you take your time and you successfully build through the draft.  Constantly wasting money on big ticket free agents has kept us in the sh*t hold for years.

    Who says no to an Adams to Dallas deal for their 1st 2nd and 3rd rd picks? I think Douglas would do this deal as he’d be loaded with lots of ammunition in this draft to really rebuild this team the way he wants. Dallas might say no but at the same time they’re getting an All Pro safety who could really transform their defense.

    I'd LOVE to get a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd round pick for Jamal Adams!

    Then, I woke from the same dream I am in where Salma Hayak is ******* me.

    To be fair; he didn't do anything in his career until lastyear, and then had a great game behind a great line against a bad rush defense.

    Did you see the video though?

    My initial reaction upon hearing this was the same....guessing that OBJ gave a security guard a playful "player slap" the same way coaches smack a guy on the rear when he comes off the field following a good play.

    This was not that.

    He sized up the guard in the locker room and smacked the dudes ass, then OBJ backed up from the guard knowing what he did wasn't right, then seemed to mock or taunt the guy.

    This wasn't harmless fun.  This was a rich, entitled prick thinking he's on his home turf in the LSU locker room and essentially bullying a security guard.

    In a world that overreacts to trivial things this was something that shouldn't be ignored or let slide IMO.

    Unfortunately, we can't deal with this the way it used to be.

    The guard would have punched him in the face, and nobody would have helped OBJ, because everybody would have looked at him and said "You deserved that bro...you were being a dick."
