Is there a dumbest post of the year? if so, can i nominate this?

You guys think we have enough picks to trade up for Dewayne Robertson?? I read he runs a 4.8 and that scouts think he looks like a future 2x defensive player of the week award winner.

The Jets need offense!

Holy crap, I hope Tannenbaum and the Jets aren't thinking the way the people on this board are thinking. The Jets fielded the #1 defense this year, the #1 dee against the pass. Just because they got lit up on the road by one of the greatest QB's of all time doesn't mean the priority is on defense. We didn't need dee when we punked Phil Rivers in his house. Where the Jets need help is with their #31 ranked passing offense!

I do have some faith in the front office though, after all they did trade and spend on Sanchez, Greene, and Edwards far more than anywhere on the dee. I'm sure they recognize that wasn't enough.

The Jets #2 WR is better than their #1, and they have absolutely zero depth behind them. Either of those guys gets hurt, and it's Clowney or Smith in the starting lineup, not good. It's not like they could go two a two TE set in that case, because they have absolutely nothing backing up Keller, either. The Jets suffered when Cotchery got hurt right after the trade for Braylon in a big way. Clowney shouldn't even be in the NFL, and Smith and Wright aren't WR's. They need serious help at the position, even if they take my advice and move Woodhead into the slot.

The Jets absolutely need another high quality receiver. Braylon will be held over on a $5M RFA tender for one year, and the Jets have that amount of time to decide whether his big play ability is worth all the drops. They need to have someone ready to step in if he's not, but they really just need additional targets for Sanchez - who grew up in front of our eyes from mid-December on. You invest that heavily in a QB, you need to do everything you possibly can to get him up to his potential.

agreed. our WR depth is really bad after Edwards/Cotch. Clowney sucks... Smith hasn't proven that he could be a consistent WR.... and the others are better suited as special teamers.. (ex. Wallace Wright) We only really had 3 weapons in the passing game and we definitely need MUCH more than that in order to compete if our defense is having an off day.

I agree with you that more WR depth would be ideal for us, but I think with our limited amount of draft picks I would feel better spending them in an attempt to complete the defensive side of the football. Winning a Superbowl has to be the main goal moving forward, and I do not think we are terribly far away, but this goal can really only be attain with an absolutely dominating defense and improvement from #6. I know that our defense was statistically ranked #1, but there are definitely places which can be improved; most notably DE, OLB (opposite Pace), CB, and Safety (to replace Rhodes, who I can no longer defend). If we can complete the defensive side of the ball then we can get by with the offense we already have intact; which other than O-Line depth and slot reciever, doesn't really have many places that scream need.

I see where you coming from, it is definitely important for us to keep this defense #1, but I rather have a more balanced team than a team that just mainly relies on its defense. If you have a good BALANCED offense, it takes a lot of pressure off the defense and gives them some rest. As you saw when the ground and pound wasn't working, we couldn't do crap in the passing game and we couldn't put points on the board anymore. I think Sanchez has improved enough to give some freedom to air it out once in awhile without those conservative safe, short passes, So I think it is time for us to get our franchise QB some weapons starting with a big-play slot receiver. :)

My top needs:

1. ANY offensive weapon. (One more weapon and the return of Leon makes this offense legit enough to compete at least. Pick Golden Tate from Notre Dame in round 1 and we are well set because he is a WR/RB/KR/PR combo. Lots of flexibility there, whether or not Leon comes back.)

2. Young NT (To train under Jenkins. Pouha has looked nice there but Nose Tackle is the MOST IMPORTANT position in a 3-4. We need to have a lock here. Pouha as the #3 is sweet.)

3. Pass rushing specialist.

4. Tackle. Could use a guard too, but I'm going with tackle. Woody is capable of playing C/T/G, that's a great "6" man. So if we get a *quality* right tackle that can start right away, then we move Woody to the 6 spot. I wouldn't even mind using a #2 pick here if we can get a guy that can truly start. What this basically would do is lock up our offensive line to an extent cause we'd have a guy on the bench in Woody who can start anywhere. Don't understimate the importance of our offensive line, we've lucked out so far to keep them all healthy so long.

5. Run stuffing defensive end.

I think that your concern about our #3 receiver is legit, but I think that is an easy position to fill; and if you think about it, we really had a very nice option there going into the season in Chansi Stuckey. As for your calling for a more balanced offense, the reason why our offense was so run heavy was because we felt we needed to coddle Sanchez in his rookie year. In year two, I still hope that we revolve our offense around the running game, but common sense would seem to dictate that our offense will open up a bit more with a more experienced QB. I say that we use both our 1st and 2nd round picks on defense and try to cement that unit as far and away the best in football for years to come. Some prospects that come to mind off the top of my head: Taylor Mays (wishful thinking and will be long gone), Corey Wootton (Northwestern DE, would be a nice fit in our defense), Carlos Dunlap (Would be a nice fit for DE, skills say he should be long gone, but is a character question), Ricky Sapp (3-4 OLB, would be a nice pass rusher in our system, but i'm concerned why he didn't own at Clemson).

anyway I think we can't wrong with either way.... you're right about Chansi.. I forgot about him, but the depth at WR in the draft is pretty weak this yr but you really never know.

Apparently O'Brien Schofield tore his ACL during today's Senior Bowl practice. I was really a big fan of his at Wisconsin and think he can recover and be a very good 3-4 OLB in our system. Any chance that he falls far enough for us to take him with one of our later picks?

Thinking he was a low 2nd early 3rd round pick, that's usually where the east-west shrine MVP types go. But now, being a 5th year senior, i would be surprised if he was picked anywhere before the 6th round. Liked the kid, but that's just a tough break. Kind of like Jack Ikegwonu, coincidentally out of Wisconsin as well. Jack was a sure-fire first rounder with worlds of potential, tore his acl, fell to the 4th round and was picked by the eagles to now land on as a free agent.

Missing that much time as a rookie is just killer. Can't practice with the team and you really get lost in the shuffle.

Loved Chansi Stuckey and feel we need someone to take his place. We need a 3rd option at WR (not Keller) and I think a golden tate or jordan shipley would fit right in.
