  1. Jets trade up to 3

    Winning teams can afford to trade high draft picks to fill needs. Bad teams cannot. The reason why we don't have talent isn't because we don't have a flashy, splashy quarterback. The reason why we don't have talent is because we can't draft it. The Colts have a flashy, splashy quarterback who is probably better than anybody we draft this year, and nobody wants to play there either. Just win baby.
  2. Jets trade up to 3

    We could have stayed at six, not passed on a QB, and selected a guy just as good and perhaps way better than the guy going at 3. That is my problem. For me the timing wasn't there this year to move up. Sitting at six was a great position, and I will continue to say that. OK, so maybe they did not like 1 of the QB's among the top 4. Heck, maybe they don't like 2 of them. No matter, because Buffalo and Arizona would have jumped us to get those guys. OR, if they trade up to get the guy we liked, a franchise RB or LG would have fallen in our laps. AND, we would have been able to find talent THROUGH THE DRAFT in Round 2, instead of wishing and hoping and praying that NEXT year free agents will like us better than they did this year.

    If you guys can guarantee me the next Carson Wentz, I am on board. I do not believe any of the guys available this year are as good as Wentz, and will never be as good as Wentz. Which is why I don't believe any of this year's QB's was worth trading up for. ESPECIALLY when there are so many available, and none stand out above the others.
  4. Jets trade up to 3

    We are a defeated franchise.
  5. Jets trade up to 3

    I am just going to agree to disagree that this was the right move for this franchise at this time, I've said my peace.
  6. Jets trade up to 3

    How many young, franchise QB's play for defensive head coaches? Curious.
  7. Jets trade up to 3

    Who is saying that?
  8. Jets trade up to 3

    You guys aren't saying anything we don't already know. Do I want a journeyman QB for the rest of my football-watching days? Of course not. But if you guys aren't scared to death now that we are going to hitch our wagon to the WRONG guy, then you really, truly aren't Jets fans.
  9. Jets trade up to 3

    That is not how we're built, though. We're not an offensive team. Comparing us to the Rams and Eagles is folly. We are a defense-first team who constantly preaches ground game and ball control. In fact, I think part of the reason why Morton is gone is because he wanted to pass more than Bowles likes. The comparison that fits the most is Jacksonville. You're telling me we could not find the second coming of Blake Bortles with the sixth pick? Or a second rounder? This team is not a franchise QB away. This team needs more talent at a number of positions. Trading three valuable assets for a move up of three spots is folly.
  10. Jets trade up to 3

    I wanted the team to stay put. We had a BPA lined up at 6th overall (4 QB's plus Nelson and Barkley), plus two seconds and a third and a fourth and a fifth. THAT was the way to truly build a winner. Now, we're back to the same position we were in when we threw all that money at Cousins. "Please QB, please save us!" The difference is now we don't even know if the kid can play in the NFL. We just traded away 3 high draft choices because of somebody's pro-day performance. Unreal.
  11. Jets trade up to 3

    Were Cooper and/or Warmack being talked about as sure-fire HOFers? Because Nelson is. Barkley is the best player in this draft, by most accounts. If not him, then it's Nelson.
  12. Jets trade up to 3

    At this point, I'm almost hoping we draft Barkley or Nelson. To give up as much as we did, you have to nail this pick. Take the best player available. The bust factor with the QB we select is just off the charts. There will be constant comparisons to Mark Sanchez, the New York spotlight will be on, etc. I basically expect the guy we draft to bust. Darnold will turn into Sanchez here. Mayfield will turn into Manziel here. Allen will be Jeff George here. Rosen will be Matt Leinert here. Typical Jets move to grab some headlines, but not get any better.
  13. Jets trade up to 3

    So 1/5 of a long snapper. Sounds about right.
  14. Jets trade up to 3

    I am less worried about adding weapons the next two seasons. I am more concerned with trying to fill the holes for next season with the remaining assets we have. We still need to replace Wilkerson, we still need an edge rusher, we still need either a LG or a C (unless we decide to keep Carpenter?) and we still need a tight end. How are we going to plug these holes now? It's not like free agents are pounding on Macc's door right now. I think the edge rusher is probably the one that will be hardest to plug now.
  15. Jets trade up to 3

    We just put a ton of pressure on our scouting staff to come up with starters in Rounds 3, 4 and 5. Not an ideal situation. We cannot miss with many picks now.
