I EAT CROW!!!

The talent was there with both guys, but the Jets have just lost patience.  For Amaro it was consistency and some little things he just couldn't seem to prove like toughness, consistent hands, etc.  For Milliner it was both health and proving that he was ever going to be more than a guy with elite "potential" but looked like a CB6 when actually playing.

I'm very shocked that they cut Milliner only because his contract is fully guaranteed. I wonder if there's offset language in there should he get picked up by another team. Amaro did not surprise me. 

I found this:  http://www.jetnation.com/2013/07/29/dee-milliner-contract-breakdown-and-offset-issue-explained/#sthash.3cux9Six.dpbs

 

He does have an offset so they will save money if he signs.

I was a big supporter of Amaro - I loved the pick at the team....Still expected him to make the team...and still expected him to have a good year.  

Mac/Bowles never liked him....and he clearly did nothing to prove them wrong. 

I hope he finds the toughness and builds a career, he'll get picked up and given a shot somewhere else.

Amaro will definitely get another shot somewhere and I still think he could put up monster numbers in the right system - as long as he can stay on the field.

These are my sentiments as well. I think the Jets gave up too early on him, but I wish him well as he will be picked up by someone. 

Millner, I  was never a big fan , but Bowles is a defensive coach and played DB I guess he felt Dee would never flourish.

What are you trying to do steal my title of worst prognosticator  on Jet nation.    Those predictions were Raideraholic bad.

It was just a horrible pick. Don't trade the best corner in the league and then use the first of your two ones on another damn corner.

Agree 100% - wish we were eating crow on that one but Dee was set up to fail the second Idzik turned in the card

IDzik is a result of Woody.  Woody needs to turn this team over to a guy like MAC.   

IM OK with another year or so of rebuilding but jeez H, I've been waiting 45 years. 

 

And Macc is the result of Woody.  He hired both of them.  And he did turn it over to each.  Macc looks like the real deal, while Idzik is a twit

Excellent point which I, through all of his million and one injuries, totally forgot about-Milliner was specifically drafted as Revis' replacement after the trade.

Do I get props for saying Dee should have been cut last August?  And for calling Amaro a stonehanded knucklehead?

Or do I have to listen to more "you don't cut a talented, first round pick that  hasn't had enough of a chance to show what he can do" horse poo?

Players should EARN a roster spot.  Draft position is irrelevant after year two in the league.  If not injury related, after year one.

And that the Jets should have drafted Cooks over Pryor? Admittedly, Pryor is better than I thought... but Cooks still should have been the pick.

People create/post in a thread to own up to their incorrect thoughts/predictions about crappy players.  One guy shows up to pat himself on the back about those players being crappy.

I was chastised for my opinions that they should have been cut last year.  Devin Smith is next on the list.   If he comes back this year and stinks it up again.  GTFO.

Pretty much everyone wanted Milliner out, not really a stretch there and Amaro was never loved by this group apparently.  I definitely miss read the Amaro scenario.

Of course if Smith ends up being successful, you just have to let us know of any other successful player that was drafted later than him, as that apparently somehow still proves you right.  Something to look forward to.
