But the fans are always in win now mode. So it their fault for own impatience

jet fans are justifiably encouraged by last year.  but most of the offensive positions still need an infusion of talent.

Exactly. Last year bought Mac and Bowles some credibility and time to rebuild the roster. Now they have to execute, but the plan is right

When it was clear that Mo was a top DE, which was 2 years ago, Mo should have been extended for a lower average salary using some of the salary cap that was wasted on Harvin and Cromartie.  

Now, in what would appear to be a Woody Johnson driven move, they are insisting on extracting some "value" from letting Mo walk by franchising him.  However, the Jets are applying $16mm of their precious resource to a position that they already have 2 other good players at.   Malik Jackson, who is probably not as good as Mo, has just set the bar higher.  This a DL deep draft.  Unless we are missing something, what teams are going to want to give up a valuable high draft pick to sign Mo for $100mm?

They blew it with Mo.  They should move on.  Pull the franchise tag if they can (Mo has not signed it), let him sign with someone else, take the compensatory pick, and use the cap room to sign some players on the lines who can help the team in the long term.

I would then extend Richardson to a fair contract that provides guaranteed money IF HE IS NOT SUSPENDED.  For his own good, he should not get any cash upfront.

Free Agency hasn't even opened yet, lol.  Relax.

Sorry your 1st sentence is simply not correct in my books.  Mo has had terrific half seasons for the most part in the past and faded badly in the 2nd half of seasons.  This year he was good from start to finish, you also need to take advantage of the lower costs of a players 1st few years.  They played Mo just the way they should have imo, the error is in signing some of the other players they did.

he's sitting back cause he spent it all last season.  we just don't have money.  

his first order of business should have been giving Mo a long term deal and not waiting until we had to franchise him for 15.7M.  

Ideally, but how can anyone criticize a GM for not extending a player when you have no idea what that player is asking for?   It presumes there was even a reasonable deal to be made at that time which can't be presumed.

Actually if you think about it the Jets are one of the reasons this spree is going on. Teams saw how we spent money and went from 4 to 10 wins. They think they can do the same

that and the huge annual increases to the cap over the last few years.  There is simply much more aggregate cap room than these years than one would have expected.

If the lose QB Brock Osweiler, expect them to come after QB Colin Kaepernick. That appears to be their backup plan.

Macc's phone rings any minute now...

Macc, "Hello."

Fitz, "Hey buddy, how's it going?  You know that deal you offered for 3 years 7mil per?...  Yeah, I think I'll take it now."

Macc, "Nope.  It's now 2 years, 6mil per."

Fitz, "Ugh, ok."

LMFAO

Spot on. These disgusting prices for CBs in FA makes me think it's becoming more and more likely we'll take a CB in the first 3 rounds this year

Things are playing out pretty well for us with Fitz. The only team we have to watch for are the Rams.

This is interesting. We must have tendered him, as he was a RFA. Waiting for a confirmation though

Edit: KTdaWinner is kenbrell Thompkins

I expect to see Harrison to NY and Powell to NE and Davis to some NFC south team.
