The "Never Issue #81 Again" Edition of Post of the Week - February 28th, 2008


Recommended Posts

So, I'm thinking that the #81 should be retired permanently by the Jets. I can't seem to recall anyone in the past decade that was any good wearing that cursed number. Give the next guy that wants #81 the #18 instead - it's cursed, obviously. Hasta Luego, JMac - best of luck "catching on" (pun intended) with your next team...

On to the nominations for this week...

Guilt is one that usually doesn't make the list though.

We could look out the window and see the Holiday Inn next door, all lit up and functional. I found my way down the stairs, through the parking garage to the front desk, where they asured me the lights would be on any minute, so we stuck it out. They never got the power back until 5 the next afternoon.

Also he is a Mangini type of guy....Way too small at that position. IMO, kellen is no answer.

(Editor's Note: Depends on the question. For example, what if the question was "Who is way too small at that position?". Well? See what I mean...)

Thor99: Shut up! Shut up!

Mrs. Bates: I am sorry boy, but you do manage to look ludicrous when you give me orders.

Thor99: Please, Mother!

Mrs. Bates: No! I will not hide in the fruit cellar. Ha! You think I'm fruity, huh? I'm staying right here. This is my room and no one will drag me out of it - least of all my big, bold son!

Thor99: Mother, please! It's just for a few days. Just for a few days so they won't find you.

Mrs. Bates: 'Just for a few days!' - In that dark, dank fruit cellar! No! You hid me there once, boy, and you won't do it again. Not ever again! Now get out! I told you to get out, boy.

Thor99: I'll ban you, Mother.

Mrs. Bates: Thor99! What do you think you're doing! Don't you touch me! Don't! Thor99! Put me down!

(Editor's Note: This is why I dig on jet-o so much - she and this post are both absolutely brilliant!)

The fact is is that it is WRONG to raise ticket prices after a 4-12 season. Teams simply do not do this. But again, you wouldn't know, "old man".

Originally Posted by serphnx

"It is wrong." Just like a little child. No reason behind it, just your belief that the world should operate to your liking. If something inconveniences you it is "wrong." Why is it "wrong" to charge more money as a business? Is there some law on the books? Has there been a lengthy moral and ethical discourse? Have our notions of fairplay and justice been impugned? Has Woody shocked our consciences, so that no reasonable person would not be offended?

Or are you just a little child whining that he isn't handed something on a platter? You have no right to the tickets. Woody has no obligation to you. Just buying something doesn't make the seller bound to you for life for future purchases. Do you complain about your cable bill too, or your rent?

Tom Shane is spinning in his JetNation grave with a comment like that.

If you can't hang with the big boys, because someone gave you the exact same kind of hit and run comment which YOU have became famous for, maybe you should be posting on www.sportsforpeoplewitheasilyhurtfeelings.com.

Peterson has or at least had (in Oklahoma) pretty skinny legs too. He's overcome that, McFadden could too IMO, I'm not saying he will just that he could.

Runner-up of the Week Sponsored by Terry Bradway (Hey. he did it)

Topic: Cimini article today about D-Rob

Originally Posted by Sperm Edwards

"He's due to make $9.8 million this season - $6.8 million in base pay, plus a $3 million roster bonus (due in June). In five seasons, he has pocketed more than $26 million, a hefty price for 14-1/2 sacks. He's signed through 2009."

OK, you see -- THIS is why you don't trade two first rounders and a 4th-rounder to move up for one player. (Subtle hint to people who want to trade UP to guarantee getting McFadden or Long or whomever). You have absolutely NO LEVERAGE in the contract negotiations.

DRob was FOURTH overall way back in 2003 when the salary cap was FAR lower than it is now. FOURTH. And this is what we gave him: 7 years, $54million. At the time I naturally thought there would be ridiculous/impossible-to-reach incentives all over the place in it since that was way out of whack for the #4 pick. If every incentive was reached, Andre Johnson (taken a pick ahead of him in the same draft) would have had a contract that maxed out at 6 years/$39M. So we got one more year out of DRob for an additional $15M. And it's killed our cap & cost us other players we either let go of or didn't sign in free agency.

Now I'm sure there were some incentives (pro bowl/all-pro selections) that Robertson didn't reach. But if he plays out we'll still have paid him just under $50M over 7 years. For the FOURTH overall pick, back in 2003, when the salary cap was only $75M. With the 2008 cap at $116M, that's the equivalent TODAY of giving the FOURTH overall pick a 7 year/$70-80M deal.

Two years ago (3 years AFTER DRob was drafted), we gave the same 4th overall pick (Ferguson) a 6 year/$37.5M contract when the cap was $102M, which was reasonable. A year later we gave the same money contract to Revis who was the 15TH overall pick like a couple of immature novices.

Just be done with this error & never do it again. Trade out of the top of the draft whenever possible, and use that enormous amount of saved money on proven NFL superstars, not NFL prospects. And no matter how great you THINK this or that player is going to be, or THINK you KNOW it, he is STILL just a PROSPECT. And you never know what kooky demands the player is going to set or else he won't sign (see Jamarcus Russell).

Just for comparison, a late first-round pick (#22-32) will get a CHEAP, CHEAP contract of around 5 years, $10-12M. Like 1/4 or 1/5 that of a top-5 pick. And they're not 1/4 or 1/5 the prospect. Ask Indy if they wish they'd swapped picks (and contracts) of Joseph Addai & Reggie Bush.

And this week's winner:

Topic: Lions interested in Vilma

Originally Posted by Irish Jet

I'm far from convinced with Pouha even as a backup. Hopefully if we do get Rogers, he gets in great condition.

Originally Posted by Sperm Edwards

No worries. Tangini will promise it to him, he'll give the team everything he's got, and then we'll re-neg on the offer. I actually KNOW they can get THAT done.

Congratulations to a SpermEdwards - a JetNation and POTW long-time favorite - on his SWEEP of this week's awards. That's right, Spermie won the award and the Runner-up this week folks. Bow before his excellency. One thing, though, about your winning post - there is a good side to being cheap with players. Just think, all of those non-raises are keeping you from seeing increases in ticket pri.....Oops, never mind. Anyway, enjoy the badge this week, Spermie:


Assist of the Week goes to faba for being a good guy and a good sport - for a two dimensional fella, anyway. ;)

That's all this legume has for y'all this week. Be good - and get me a NT.
