Which offseason acquisition are you most excited about?

I agree with you guys. I think that T.Jones will make an immediate impact on the offense. What the offense lacked last year was a solid #1 back which we now have in Jones. A strong run game will improve Pennington's best play, the PAP.

keely smith the new bookkkeper-when the players get their checks on time they'll be happier, play harder and better. And don't want to forget CMart now that he'll be a full time cheerleader.

Seriously, T Jones gives the the Jets what they missed last year, a full time consistent RB and their change of pace back will have a pace to change.

Since a player is not specified in this thread's question, I think SteveO hit the nail on the head. Pennington's play-action pass was absent last season, and with Thomas Jones here, we should see one of the best play fakes put to use again.

Revis, Dyson and Rhodes could be as good as any such combination in the NFL.

Whoa, hold on trigger. We don't know yet, but I respect the word could. However, if we are going on potential, I think Atlanta's secondary will be scary in a few years (Hall and Houston at CB)...look out!

I like the acquisition of TJ and the first two draft picks (especially Harris), but K. Coleman could be a nice difference maker as well. The word on this guy is that his motor does not stop running. That sort of fire could be a nice asset to a relatively quiet defense.

Revis is the guy I would like to see!!

Also don't forget about the redskins secondary,It will be scary as well Taylor/Landry will be handing out concussions like hot cakes.

Oooh, I forgot about them; if they get decent corner play...whammo! Taylor/Landry is just sick; how did I forget them???

The guy I'm waiting to see is Kenyon Coleman. I'm sure Jones and Revis will probably have more impact on the team, but I can't wait to spend a Sunday without seeing Kimo beaten like a rented mule.

Same here,Coleman has all the tools and if he'll give us a solid D-line if he turns into a good player.

I has to be Jones. A big bruising running back who is a real threat is going to kill off the clock, move the chains and get the defense to back off our WRs.

Now it is up to the offensive line to step up and give Jones some holes to run through.

While Im excited for RBs I want to see if the Jets can get a legitimate franchise CB for once. Also I miss seing a person who could do something with a punt return, ie Santana Moss.

Also our secondary will be good but it cannot touch the ravens (Rolle, McAlister and Reed) or the Broncos (Champ, Bly, Lynch).

Lynch? come on, i can name 15 safties that are better than him. i could probably name 10 linebackers that would be better safeties than him.

I guess it would be Revis. Thomas Jones is the defintion of an average NFL starting running back. I would not be pumped up if we brought in Rueben Droughns either.

I am hoping that David Bowens will make an immediate impact as a rush linebacker. I think that if he can be as good a pass rusher standing up as he was with his hand down, he will make our entire defense better against the pass. We needed someone to help out Bryan Thomas and hopefully, we got it.

I can't wait to see T.Jones and Washington together , but I must say , I am quite intrigued in seeing what Andre Wadsworth has left .

Wadsworth probably won't last long enough in camp to get to a point where we get to see him.

But, i agree with you, if he gets to that point, he is the one I really want to see. i just got a feeling about this guy. Another comeback player of the year?

Would be a great story.

Harris.

Call me sentimental but the chance at a game changing inside linebacker tickles my fancy.

Jones will be exactly as advertized... middle of the pack runner. Nothing to write home about unless it is to write about what a big upgrade he is over last year's crop. No, Thomas Jones is very far from exciting. People who think that are probably the sdame kind who got excited when we got Johnny Johnson from the Cardinals back in the day.

Revis? Sure... But the way cornerback is played in the NFL we wont know for sure until a few years down the road. Even then I just can't bring myself to get all amped up over a corner.

Wadsworth. I am excited to see if he has anything. Anything at all.

Thomas Jones was one I liked a lot. He and Leon could and hopefully will form a very, very good 1-2 punch, the best in the AFC East.

Kenyon Coleman was another addition that I was really happy about because it sends Kimo into a reserve role and if Coleman can produce as a starter as he did as a part-time player in Dallas, it will turn out to be a very good signing.

Darrelle Revis was probably my most favorite addition though. We needed another starting calibear Cornerback more than anything IMO and we got an excellent one in Revis who can also be a Return Specialist. He and Dyson are going to form one damn good starting Cornerback tandem. New England / New York games are going to be fun when Brady is slinging it to Moss and Stallworth with Revis & Dyson defending.

I think Tjones will have an impact, but the run blocking was terrible last year. And, unless I've missed something, we havent done much this offseason to correct that problem. In fact, if the rumors that Kendall will be gone by training camp are true, we may have even gotten worse in that area. Thomas Jones is a good RB, but he'll still need guys to block for him. Anyway, I look forward to seeing how Mangini/Schottenheimer incorporate Jones into the offense, and how T. Jones will affect the play of Cotchery and Coles. I also look forward to the training camp battles on the defensive side of the ball. Especially if Barton and Barrett stick around, just about every position will be up for grabs.

I'm gonna go with Chansi Stuckey. No, I'm not joking either. The reason I am going with him is because he is the least obvious. He has some serious play-making ability and people should not be fooled by his combine numbers (which were done at less than 100%) or the fact that he was picked in the 7th round. This guy could be a real steal. He was playing in a run-balanced Offense at Clemson too, so in that his numbers were impressive the last couple of years. Also, his injury history is way overblown. Go back and look at the injuries he had and how long he was actually out with them. Time will tell for sure but I think this guy could have a huge impact in the slot.

Obviously Thomas Jones will probably make the biggest immediate impact. Revis and Harris were great picks no matter what they gave up in other picks to get them and they should both contribute big-time in year one. I'm interested to see what Kenyon Coleman can do as a starter.

Good call on Wadsworth! I almost forgot about him. He could be a very interesting pick up as a fill-in if he can recapture some of what he used to have.

jetfuel, I too really liked the Chansi Stuckey pick and was surprised to see him fall all the way into the 7th round. When the Jets selected him I thought to myself, "He was still on the board!?". He could turn out to be a very good #3 Wideout for this team and if Coles does indeed plan to retire in 2-3 seasons, one day he may start alongside Cotchery. Time will tell but I really liked the Stuckey pick as well.

I'm not so sure he will become a top 2 guy but even that the potential is there is a testament to how worth it it was for them to pluck him from the 7th round. I know the guy ran a 4.3 or 4.4 a while back, was projected as a first day, 3rd round pick, and then after his broken foot (which he came back from in 3 weeks which was probably not the wisest decision but shows the guy has heart and guts) he slipped and ran a 4.6 at the combine and all of a sudden he's around in the final round of the draft. The guy is a gifted athlete for sure and is more than worth the risk of taking him when they did. Imagine if he can become a threat and Brad Smith starts to get more involved. All of a sudden people will start to see that Chris Baker isn't as bad as some think and that the Jets don't NEED to have the next Antonio Gates/Tony Gonzales, etc. (I'm not saying it would be a bad thing to get one of those types of course)

Then again, Pennington won't be able to get him the ball anyway with his noodle arm, so when Clemens beats him out in camp we'll be alright. Obviously, being a big supporter of Chad I don't mean that but I do hope that Clemens learns a lot again this year (which no matter what anyone thinks of Chad's abilities there is no doubt that he is a very knowledgable QB) and is a legitimate threat to Pennington in '08. I do think Clemens will be a hell of a QB with another year of learning under his belt and may even be able to emerge this year if the opportunity arises.
