Because of a chat in another thread with @T0mShane.  We like to pretend we understand the game well enough to identify a quality player but when the Jets had a HoF head coach making the picks, this is what we got.

What the Jets “got” with Parcells was a man who set up the franchise for a decade of success with a nimrod head coach in Herm Edwards.

Jets fans like to act like their GMs are always the worst at drafting but in general every team kinda sucks at drafting. Every team has huge swings and misses.

JFC...you forget nuggets like this.

Dorain Boose played 34 games, zero starts and never had a sack.  I was sure that dude was gone after year one.  Can't recall him making a single play.

You get many things from all people, Thomas.  This is specifically about how Parcells' drafting impacted the team.

Re Boose.  He showed up in the CFL for the team I cheer for (Edmonton) after failing in the NFL.  He was just outstanding his 1st yr, like a dominant dlineman.  Really really good player, came back year two, out of shape and with problems, got hurt and that was it.  He ended up with real drug or mental problems and died in Edmonton few years ago.

Yup.  We pretend it's easy, but Bill took multiple guys with premium picks who went on to be special teams guys for a few years before being unemployed.

Wow, had no idea.  What a wild ride.

Two best picks were probably Fabini and Ferguson.

Random Fabini note.  Walking through the parking lot at MetLife a few years back and I notice Fabini in his street clothes (ie, no Jets gear).  Not sure how many fans recognize long-retired O-linemen taking a walk but the look of shock on his face when I was like "Hey, Jason" as I walked past was pretty telling.

How did it impact the team? How did Parcells’ eeeeevil GMing hurt the football team? Because the team was good when he was here, and it was good for years after he left, same as he did in New England and Dallas. Contrast that with ya boys Mike Maccagnan and Rex Ryan who turned the Jets into the most talent poor franchise in the sport, so much so that it’s going to take a decade to repair the damage.

Ummm...the team had wasted dozens of draft picks on bad football players?  This is generally viewed as being bad, no?

“If you ignore the good players he drafted and acquired, his drafts were terrible” is a superior Jets fan take.

Except nobody said to ignore anything?

For reference, here are The Great Ozzie Newsome drafts from those same years. You’ll note that The Great Ozzie Newsome was picking in the Top Ten in each of those years, despite being The Great Ozzie Newsome.

I would say that a large percentage of draft picks made by every GM in history would be viewed as “wasted” if you believe that every draft pick those GMs make should be long-term NFL contributors.

Sorry...I am to posting charts what Bill Parcells was to drafting football players.

My problem with Parcells was his penchant for trading back premium picks and semi-premium picks (Rounds 1-3 and Round 4) then trading back and back again for extra crap picks in Rounds 5-6-7.

Netted us Marc Megan, JP Machado, Ryan Young, JJ Syvrud (wtf?), Casey Dailey, Doug Karczewski, Blake Spence, Eric Bateman, Eric Obogu (but he did well in commercials), Chris Brazzell, Dustin Johnson, Lawrence Hart, Tim Scharf (who?), Steve Rosga (lol). 

The only late round pick that worked out for him was Jason Ferguson but he  should have been a much higher pick but he was on the pot. 

Great coach, changed the culture. Crappy GM.

Ozzie is another great example as to how hard it is to find a QB.  His SB winning QB was the 10th one he drafted.

 

Imagine letting a GM draft 10 QBs today.  We want guys fired after the first one they take has a rough few weeks.

Somewhere along the line people have convinced themselves that you are supposed to draft 5 starters a year....Parcells had one great draft, 2 bad, and one ok.  So now we are saying Parcells was bad at building teams? lol

Should have held onto Farrior and Randy Thomas. Never should have let Coles leave either. Leon Johnson was a hell of a 3rd down/special teams guy before he tore his knee to shreds.

1999 I don't blame him....when you look at our picks, they kinda fall in line with the rest of that draft....it wasn't a good one.  But 1998 and Dorian Boose and Scott Frost going in front of Jeremiah Trotter, Brian Griese and Hines Ward.  And that draft in 1997.  WOW.  Imagine our offense then with Tony Gonzalez as the TE.

This is an incredibly interesting post to me and might start me down a research path on something I’ve wanted to look into for awhile.

I believe, but haven’t researched yet, that a good portion of GMs who are considered “the greats” either historically or currently have far more stinkers for drafts than acknowledged.  I think fans assume the really good GMS are building teams through great draft year after year with, but I think most modern NFL juggernauts are built off of a singular great draft, then smart FA signings and a few hits in future draft.

This Newsome snapshot makes me think it might be true.  I looked at some Ballard drafts because he is considered a top flight GM, but lots of junk from him too.

The Parcells haters make me laugh and cringe.

• He was hired to win NOW

• Almost won it all 2 years after a 1-15 record team he inherited.

• Tried setting up the franchise with Bill Belichick as the HC, Charlie Weiss as the OC, Romeo Crennel as the DC, a 1st round QB of the future, and two 1st round pass rushers.

Whatever went wrong with the exit strategy is debatable but he was clearly trying to win a Lombardy and leave a long term franchise of success behind.

The hate is odd considering all of that.

He totally botched the 99 season by not having a serviceable backup to start the year.

He totally botched the handoff to Belichick and left us in cap hell.

Rex Ryan was better for the Jets than Bill Parcells.

What you learn when you read up on a lot of these “great” GMs is that they are all obsessed with “culture” and guys who fit in the locker room, which leads them to make some weird picks along the way where they ignore an exponentially more talented player who profiles as an a-hole. Super Bowls are rarely won by the team with the most pure talent.

Which is why a strategy that focuses on building through the draft is so risky
