You give our 2 first round picks this year without blinking.

Darnold, both firsts this year, next year’s first.

You trust your instincts if you feel there is a qb in the draft that would help the Jets. Watson is a win now qb, and the Jets are not a win now team. And would be less so with the draft assets they w

Didnt realize this but I guess this kid is his agent

 

That’s his “marketing agent,” and his “marketing agent” has, like, 700 followers and lives in Brooklyn. His agent-agent is David Mughuleta.

At first I was against this.  But now thinking about what the Adams trade really brought us in terms of how much it softens the blow.  The #2, our 2nd rounder, and maybe next year's highest 1st rounder wouldn't really sting.  Particularly because If we get Watson, we don't really need the #2 pick and at #23 we can still land a really good player.  Then we'd still have a 1st rounder next year.  Maybe worst case we have to trade #2 and #23 and a day 2 pick next year.

While some here are posing much bigger compensation, I don't think it will come to that.  First of all, the only way they trade him is if they absolutely have to, and it looks like it's come to that.  That lowers their leverage already.

The combination of draft capital and cap hit pretty much limits the ideal suitors to NYJ, JAX and MIA.  JAX isn't going to pass on Lawrence for Watson.  MIA could and they are the only real threat.  MIA's #3 and #18 are worth almost the same as our #2 and #23 and their 2nd rounder is only 2 picks lower than ours.  So it really comes down to the QB decision for HOU.  If they like Tua, then the deal with MIA makes a ton of sense.  If they don't, then do they strongly prefer Fields over Wilson?  If so, then the deal with the NYJ makes the most sense because at #3, they could miss out on Fields.  

They could land, Tua, Smith or Chase at #3 to try to replace Hopkins, and have some extra picks to help replenish the roster.  That's not an awful deal for them considering where they are currently.

Or, they could get Fields with the #2, and the same extra picks, which isn't quite as good if they prefer Tua over Fields.  Of course, if they like Darnold as much as Tua, then we'd be back in front on that basis and with HOU, who knows what the hell they're thinking.

The sad irony is that if they didn't make the idiotic trade to get Tunsil, MIA wouldn't even be in position to challenge for the Watson trade.  MIA could end up having traded Tunsil and one first round pick (Tua) for Watson.  That's just sad.

I don’t see the Texans trading him to the AFC especially the Dolphins or Jets. The Texans are ran by former patriot cronies.

49ers

Rams

Colts

come to mind

Yea unlikely but more attractive 

So, your logic is that because some ex-Patriots are in the front office, they definitely wouldn't trade Watson to an ex-division rival, but they may trade him to a current division rival?

While we're at it, we should come up with a scenario that gets Watson to the Patriots.  Maybe for a 2nd round pick and a bag of deflated footballs NE doesn't need anymore.

Where are we getting the Watson loves NY and would waive his no trade clause for the Jets from? Did he post something on social or is it just a guess?

- Geotagged location this week in Edgewater, NJ (40 mins from Florham Park)

- commented "nice pic" of an image posted of him in a 49ers Montana jersey

- And then yesterday we found out he wanted the Texans to interview Saleh

Just breadcrumbs but I don't think it's nothing

Wondering if Connor is watching any of these playoff games where playoff teams are lining up with absolute third-string JAGs at fifteen different positions, but are being carried by good QBs. Aaron Rodgers’ OL is a bunch of longshoremen at this point. Hughes and @Paradis play too much Madden.

People have been so caught up in the rush of young AFC QBs the last few years, that they seem to have forgotten how insanely good Rodgers is.  Probably the MVP this year and probably the most accurate passer in NFL history.  If he had been on a team with better talent, he would have a lot more jewelry.

I like Connor as a beat reporter but his football knowledge is basically that of any twenty-something football fan.

Just because the Jets aren’t a QB away doesn’t mean it’ll be a bad trade. In 2 years, he’ll be 27. It’s not like he’s some 35 year old QB at the end of his career.

I hate to be the guy but if they believe racism is an issue in Houston then Tua or Fields may not be the route they go. Wilson fits the Shanahan system, if they want him they'll need #2.

Everyone wanted to tank for Trevor. That didn’t work out but the premise still stands. Until you have one, you need to exhaust every avenue to get a franchise QB. Getting Watson is arguably a better scenario. Yes you give up more draft capital but you already know he’s a franchise QB who’s battle tested. I’d give up whatever to get him. I don’t think Houston trades him under any scenario.

LG - Sign Thuney, RG - draft a C and move McGovern over, draft a RB, WR 1 - sign Robinson. There, offense fixed in 1 offseason. The addition of Saleh, return of Mosely, QW getting better and experience from Hall and Davis should improve the D this year. We can use next offseason to finish off the D. 

I would say the Jets trading for Watson would make more likely that Robinson would want to sign with them too

Just show this picture to Cal McNair and he’ll send us Watson for the #2 pick and a Blu-Ray of Blazing Saddles.

I think because they made that stupid trade with the Dolphins they’d be redicent to double down & trade him to Miami!
