There is a team up north that does a pretty good job of acquiring free agents or making trades (ie. undrafted) that has supplemented their team very well.

Mike Vrabel

Rodney Harrison

Rosie Colvin

Junior Seau

Stephen Neal

Mike Compton

Joe Andruzzi

Corey Dillon,

Adalius Thomas

Randy Moss

Larry Izzo

Heath Evans

Jabar Gaffney

Roman Phifer

Antwan Smith

Bobby Hamilton

Christian Fauria

Reche Caldwell

You can't use a team that cheated it's way to success as an example of anything.

Bob Sutton...the guy is a defensive genius. His blitz packages kept offenses guessing all year.\:D/

We're going to hire an unproven NFL Head Coach coach anyway, why not talk to Urban Meyer? ****. Maybe we can even talk to Steve Spurrier. QUICK! Somebody get Teddy Cotrell and Paul Hackett on the phone now!!

Though that is a pretty good list - except Maroney - he is a bust - it hardly makes a full team. The point is that the Patriots are a bit overrated in their success in the draft, but do a very good job of bringing in free agents or trades that take their team to the next level. The Jets also have a core draft group which they are building around with free agents - free agents are almost an absolute necessity in today's NFL.

Not big name Free Agents. You don't need big name Free Agents to win. You can pick up decent / average FA pickups and pair them with solid, great Draft Picks that you are able to keep in house. That is how you win.

Thats what the Jets need to do this offseason. We'll see if they are capable...

That's a fair point though a different discussion. The Pats do tend to stay away from big free agent signings though I think they did indulge a couple of years ago - the year they signed Adlai Thomas.

The Patriots have a system that works for them, the Jets instability at HC has us in a constant state of flux when it comes down to "systems". If you look at some of the "young" coaches that have come into organizations that have the pieces, they haven't exactly reinvented the wheel. Tomlin kept LeBeau and the 3-4 and the same philosophy on Offense. Harbaugh let Rex Ryan do his thing and also didnt' exactly change the Ravens "run first" offense.

My hope is whoever comes in can make us work with the pieces we have, draft complimentary players and do the same thing in FA signings. We need to stop with the square peg/round hole issue.

In the paper today there was an article saying the giants are considering making spags an official coach in waiting if that would keep him from leaving. that means he would get a promise to be the HC when coughlin retires or is fired, coughlins contract is up in 2010.

The source who is familiar with the Jets' plans said the team is deciding between Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo and Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan for the job. The Jets also plan on keeping Brian Schottenheimer as offensive coordinator under either man, the source said.

Great. Woody and Tanny have a real hard on for Schotty.
