The Sharps Know Watson Will Be a Jet


Recommended Posts

The Day after the Dodgers signed Kirk Gibson I bet $100 at like 99-1 the Dodgers would win the World Series.  I doubled down at like 3-1 the Dodgers would beat the Mets in the NL playoffs and again doubled down at 7-1 the Dodgers would beat the A's in the '88 Series.

This would be a similar bet. 

Someone might be willing to put a small amount on this but the Jets have nowhere near the talent level the Dodgers had that year.

Even if the Jets get Watson this is a foolish bet.

It's not just the draft picks, it's also the money.  Paying him what needs to be paid removes the ability to fix the team with free agents as well. The Jets are not in a position to give up 4 fir

I'm a full blown draftnik geek. Because the Jets suck so bad, many of us enjoy the draft season more then the regular season.  The glimmer of hope, if you will but at the end of the day, picks are sim

It's pretty simple.  The Jets have the worst roster in the NFL.  Therefor it's worse than the Texans roster.

Jets Defense is better. Run games are about equal, but i'd give Jets the edge with Becton run blocking. WRs in Houston are better but for how long? Fuller always injured and Cooks has a new team everyother year, plus the Jets will absolutely improve the WR position.

Saleh and JD > whatever combo of morons they have in Houston.

Not buying that Houston is so much better than the Jets. Especially after this offseason is finished.

There are sports books overseas offering odds on Watson. Texans are the leaders at +200. Jets are at +1000, with 6 teams offering better odds 

I’m sure the sharks overseas are more dialed in than their American counterparts... LOL

I'm a working man and have neither the time or inclination to list both of their rosters, but go ahead and look them up - it's painfully obvious.

I’m familiar with the Texans roster. It is old and overpaid. They have like one good player aside from Watson, and $6M in cap space.

well so far the texans won't even listen to an offer for watson 

 

What do you think Caserio’s mentor Bill Belichick would do in this situation? I’m pretty sure Watson would be out the door lighting quick. 

One player can’t be bigger than the team.

The Jets are not in a position to give up 4 first rounds picks and pay a 4 win QB $30mm with the current talent on the roster.

Bottom line, the Jets roster is by far worse than the Texans, not sure why anyone thinks we'll be any better with Watson as the QB.  Maybe we'll win 6 games instead of 2 (or the 4 Watson won with a better roster) but upgrading the roster with whatever cap space is left.

Watson is a great fit for a team that has an established roster, missing a QB (much like Tampa last year)

 

This 100%! And to be perfectly honest I usually don't agree with you on many things, but you're spot on here.

Go bet the rent payment if you're so certain 

10 to 1 its free money right 

Emmanuel kant says that a wager is the way for people to stop and analyze the endless sh*t they talk 

I'll make this bet with you Shane, 2:1 if he stays in Houston 10 to 1 if he's a jet 

I think he's just missing the real takeaway from the article: 

“Maybe they know something,” William Hill sportsbook director Nick Bogdanovich said. “I don’t know. Maybe they think Sam Darnold will start playing better.”

Barbarossa reroll with a new line, #weapinz, competent coach and the motherf***in' king of offensive systems!

Deus Vult!

Deshaun Watson is cool too, though. I fully support that as well. But say no to drafting a QB not named Trevor Lawrence in this draft.

Let me add that when you put all your eggs in one basket, if we give up all that capital and all that pay to DeShawn let's just say he blows out a knee or has a high ankle sprain.

He won't be elevating anything around him except his leg and we'll be totally f*****.

It’s fair that he will most likely stay in Houston, if I was Houston I’d make sure he does. But, if he doesn’t? 6 teams more likely than Jets? No way, Houston needs to draft their future QB and sell them to the fan base. I mean maybe they think the 3rd best QB, leftover QB will do it but I think they need that second slot for optics. I’d say Miami , Carolina and Jets would be the worse the odds should be from the Jets perspective. But at the end of it Houston will keep him and the Jets will make the wrong choice.

I see.  So you are saying let's continue to have crappy QB play on the cheap because the QB could possibly get injured.  Isn't that true for all high paid QBs though?  Are you saying that teams shouldn't have highly paid QBs due to injury risk?  Sorry, ...  this reasoning does NOT compute.

That's what happens when you have elite talent at the most important position in football.  You could say the same thing about every team with a good QB.  The Steelers, Packers, Bills, Bucs, Chiefs, Seahawks, even the Browns and Ravens.  What did the Niners do without Garopoolo?

It is a shame that none of these teams are competitive, though. 

You cannot be competitive unless you have 4 first round picks in 2 years, 5 years before you plan on being competitive.

I believe it was Foucault who said, “Drafting a right tackle at 2 is ******* clownshoes.”

$50 to St Jude’s that Watson is not an employee of the Houston Texans on the opening day of the 2021 NFL regular season. 

To bet on the field isn't an option. There are like 5 teams listed, all better odds than the Jets. Most of these books are in equador or cayman type places. Ya know like where Sar posts from. No bet

you would have Watson long term and if you draft well with the picks you have left over and use your FA money wisely they can build a team around him in a couple years that can compete for a super bowl.  

pretty much this. not sure why everyone is so against him. every team has a player that get paid

The idea that Houston has to trade him before the 21 nfl draft is an artificial time line. It's possible that Russell Wilson gets out of Seattle before Watson gets free of Houston. The Texans front office are not rational actors and are going to make him earn it. And if he does get out it has to be out of the conference.

Some fans here would rather drastically overpay a mediocre box safety than the most important position in all of professional sports.  It is mind boggling.

Figures you’d put the needs of Ecuadorian bookmakers over those of sick American kids, but what more can you expect of a Philly DSA member?
