  1. My understanding is that Brown wants to be paid like a Guard, as for whatever reason Centers aren't on the same payscale as the other O-Line positions are in recent years, not to necessarily play the Guard position, although he's probably open to it if it means he gets the money he wants.

    Still, I really believe the Jets think they can replace Moore internally, I wouldn't get your hopes up too much.

  2. Same thing said by Jet fans after Pete Kendall was traded and when Curtis was on the PUP list.

    Jets plans = Adrian Clarke & Kevan Barlow

    Big difference in those scenarios is they waited until August to do anything those Offseasons and at that point it was too late to do anything to improve the position.

    Here, we're cutting Moore in February. This time, If we don't do something to improve the position, it will have been by choice, not because there was no other viable alternative.

  3. You don't give decent but not special guards 7 million for a year. You give 7 time Pro Bowl guards 7 million a year (See: Faneca). Moore was a nice little run blocker, but slightly below average against the Pass and not worth what he was going to cost against the salary cap.

    And Sorry, I don't care what Moore's 2010-2012 cap hits look like, because he was going to bitch and moan after next year anyways about his contract situation because those numbers were overly beneficial to the Jets.

    I'm a little concerned if our plan is too look at the internal options, but if there's one thing I know it's that Bill Callahan knows Offensive Lines which inspires a little bit of confidence in me.

  4. I hate talks about "Clutch" stats.....David Wright is a great player who is going to hit regardless of situation, he had a track record of coming up big in big spots in the past, and he'll likely continue to do so in the future. One rough year doesn't change that, he didn't suddenly forget how to be "Clutch", most likely it's just a small sample-size fluke.

  5. At 6'3, 215 with 4.3 speed, who cares if he has hands, right?

    That's like asking 6'4, 256 with 4.6 speed to tackle someone.

    Difference is Gholston was an excellent college player with Top Measurables.

    DHB caught for all of about 600 yards last year.

  6. I'm still a little skeptical of someone whose draft stock is almost entirely based off of his measurables since we know he wasn't much of a Football player at Maryland. At least certainly not worth a 1st round pick there.

    OK, now this is getting weird.

    Despite a report in the New York Daily News that the guaranteed $6 million in base salary that receiver Laveranues Coles is due to earn from the Jets will be reduced by whatever he earns elsewhere, Dave Hutchinson of the Newark Star-Ledger has clarified for us that Coles has walked away from the guaranteed payment.

    So, in other words, Coles gave up $6 million guaranteed in search of even more.

    So, in other words, the Jets owe him nothing.


  8. Just to repeat...

    Moss for a 4th

    No offense, but the Moss situation was pretty unique and most definitely seen as an aberration by the rest of the league. He had a monster salary and was able to force his exit from Oakland by only being willing to rework his contract for certain teams. It was either accept little in compensation, or cut him and he'll walk to a team of his choice.

    If teams compared every deal to Randy Moss's trade, no trade would ever get made because lets face it, who is trading their star for a 5th round pick? It makes no sense in normal circumstances. Johnson's value is probably around a 2nd round pick.

  9. After the year that Johnson had, no way I give up a 2nd round pick for him.

    Two words: Ryan Fitzpatrick.

    His extremely-conservative style pretty much took the ball out of Ocho Cinco's hands. He's still an extremely talented player, although his increasing age (31) is a concern to me.

  10. Brett Favre was great at Age 39, and awful at Age 40.

    All I'm saying is Warner at Age 38 next year isn't too far off from the point of diminishing returns, it may even be next season, especially considering he hasn't been very durable. Before this year, his last 16 game season was 2001.

    I'm not willing to pay him what it would take to acquire him, which is north of 12 million a year if you've been paying attention to his negotiations with the Cardinals.

    Boldin, on the other hand, is the right age to be a nice target for us, although he's not really a true downfield threat and only has 2 16 game seasons in the books himself, still he's a tremendous player so you can probably overlook those flaws.

  11. Why on earth would Coles let the Jets out of his guaranteed year....nevermind I don't think negotiating a deal which involves LESS guaranteed money would be allowed by the NFLPA. Make no mistake about it, we're paying Coles to not play next year.

    I'm tired about his bitching as well, but you have to question if that was a good move. I don't think it is. Either way, I'll let T-Rex make their plan before I criticize too seriously. Don't care if he's gone if Boldin will be here shortly, for example.

  12. Well how many innings are starting pitchers expected to throw?

    Assuming it plays out similarly to the last World Baseball Classic.... where Johan Santana started 2 games and pitched 8.1 innings, Francisco Rodriguez got into 3 games and pitched 3 Innings. Among MLB Pitchers, Bartolo Colon and Jae Seo pitched the most innings, a total of 14 innings over 3 starts. They kept the pitchers on similar routines to what they would normally be doing in Spring Training otherwise.

  13. I think it's a little ridiculous to completely ignore last year's results though, where Nady was considerably better then Swisher. It's easy to assume that Swisher will rebound, but how many times have a players career unexplainably went into the tank and never really fully recovered from there? A competition is for the best, let the one who hits the most win.

    And if anybody is known as Pedro Cerrano, it's Carlos Delgado. The resemblance is uncanny.


  14. I like. Saw no reason for Murphy to need a platoon anyways. Murphy hit .305/.363/.481 against Lefties in the minors last year, then hit .400/.462/.700 against them in the Majors (Granted this was only 12 PA).

    Tatis then brings the Right Handed Bat off the bench most games, helping to balance the bench.

    I'm not crazy over his take on Church, in that I feel he's needed Defensively out there in Citi Field. I don't mind giving him some games off against the Tougher Lefties out there, especially on the Road, but I don't think he needs a strict platoon situation.

  15. I think your Run D was not as good as the numbers suggest because of the reasons you gave as the Jets got ahead in a few games and the path of less resistance was through the air.


    Our Run D Ranked 6th against the Run on a Per Attempt basis. This isn't having a nice ranking because nobody ran on you, this is having a nice ranking because you could stop the run.

    Granted, as Jenkins tired, they faded a little bit down the stretch, but if you pace him better next year (Hopefully by adding a nice backup NT), they should be fine.

  16. Forget stats. He is outstanding against the run and in pass coverage (which the Jets desparately need). Just what you want from an ILB. 10 times better than Barton.

    He's never really impressed me in either area when I've watched Baltimore. I mean, sure they stopped the run, but when you have people like Haloti Ngata and Ray Lewis patrolling the middle of the field, I tend to think he was more the beneficiary of other people being as good as they are. Sort of like how most of our run stopping abilities revolved around the greatness of Kris Jenkins.

    If you ask me, Scott might be the most overrated player in this FA crop.
