I want to witness a single team of mine win a championship before I die.  If you could guarantee me a Jets ring within the next two years, but it would have to be followed by a Browns-level decade, I would agree to that in a New York minute.

Seriously 

Hell, we’re currently in the midst of a Browns-level decade.

This is one of the sh*ttiest, laughable organizations in the history of pro sports. Yet many in this fanbase act like anything short of a 70’s Steelers, 80’s 49ers or 2000’s Pats dynastic run simply isn’t good enough lol.

I started following this team in ‘74 when Namath was literally on his last legs. I’ve been through the brunt of the lowest of the lows.

Just give me a single championship and I’ll be content. Anything more is just gravy.

Who could say no? We’ve been sold the future for over a decade and in the process, actually built a very strong roster. Time to push all of the chips in 

Rodgers has won only one SB in his career, despite all those home playoff games and great teams.  The chances that he leads the Jets to a SB win are pretty slim.  I'm not seeing how bringing in an old Rodgers on a ridiculous contract and giving up draft picks means the Jets are instant SB contenders.  I'm not sure he leads the Jets to the playoffs or that he can stay healthy for a full season.  It is a massive gamble with long odds.

That wasn’t the ops question, but Rodgers contact doesn’t seem ridiculous if traded for. I could be wrong, but from what I gather it’s 2 years at around 45 mil total. That is very reasonable. He’d probably retire after that. As far as draft picks I can’t imagine it would be much more than one 1st because of his age. That isn’t franchise altering compensation whatsoever

I'm totally down for a SB push but I don't get why people are so doom and gloom on the future. We are going to have a massive cap hit, 3 years from now, that we can plan all other contracts around.

You'd likely let Becton and Elijah Moore walk after 2024 and see if you can get some comp picks.

'23: $15m

'24: $32m

'25: Retires $60m dead cap hit

 

I feel like we can plan for a $60m hit if we have 3 years to know its coming.

Definitely and in 3 years who knows how much the cap will increase. I’d much rather make a push now while we have a bunch of good pieces on cheap deals

We are worse than the Browns, have been since 2018, and probably will be going forward.

Say what you will about Watson and his off field issue, but he’s the kind of QB we dream about.

Silly hypothetical realistically there is no guarantee we get a SB ... if inheriting this contract truly means we have to write off two or three years in the future I'd rather **** a cheese grater.

If the contract can be reworked into something not insane I'm down.

lol but the point of the question is IF it were a definite to win the superbowl would you be ok with it if the next 2 years were total rebuilds basically. you must be a blast at parties.....you probably tell the girl in your wet dreams "you know we really shouldn't do this without a condom"

Did you miss the part where I **** a cheese grater... that's the definition of a blast at a party. I emplore you to find better entertainment than that north of the border.

I tell the girl in my dreams " I just ****ed a cheese grater so it's a mess down there but if you're game I'm game"

I'm 73 years old and have been following the NFL since seeing the '55 Championship game (Browns/Rams) on TV, Yet  I DON"T want to go the superstar traveling mercenary route to the extreme represented by an A-Rod signing. And for me, in the current NFL, QB play is boring--sticky gloves for the receivers, permissible intentional grounding outside of the pocket, etc. For me, the passing game is for the most part  not much more interesting than watching kicked extra points. I like to appreciate what the other 21 guys on the field are all about. (I don't care that it's a QB driven-league),

I picked both, but leaning towards yes, whatever. I don't want the horror show that is the Rams to be the Jets after an SB, but I think the benefits of finally winning one greatly outweighs the cons. That said, Aaron Rodgers was on 3 straight 13 win seasons and couldn't finish it. Getting him isn't a guarantee, but if for the sake of hypotheticals it is then sure, totally.

Refreshing perspective... Thanks for this ... But c'mon ... You want a SB right ?
