  1. Jets fire Mike Maccagnan.

    We really need to get a competent GM in place soon because I have 0 faith in Gase to run this ship. I've accepted the poor timing of the firing because Mac should have been gone with Bowles but if we start retooling with moving guys like Leo and moving on from Mosley/Bell because the HC doesn't want them we are just taking 1 step forward and 2 steps back. We should have just moved on and let the HC and GM work together so we didn't land in the position but it's yet again another incompetent move by our franchise.

    You didn't have to say reach it's assumed. It's not noticeable in the mid rounds when things get jumbled but picking a top 3 player compared to a top 8 player is a massive reach. Drafting for need in rounds 2-4 are probably why Mac has done so poorly by forcing WR's and OLB's on us because they were huge needs. I understand there is a point where you just can't keep drafting the same position over and over and have it be smart because you need to build a balanced roster but when you have conviction that a great player is there and you pass because of need you should be fired immediately. When it's that high on the board passing on a guy ranked 3 compared to 5-7 range may not seem like a big reach but it's is a pretty big reach actually. It's how guys like Leo and Adams fall to us when they should have been top 3 picks without question. Only QB is when you can reach to secure your guy because of the importance of the position.

    There is no way you can make such a claim like that. Actually you could argue the opposite that successful team take BPA and secure good talent which is why they are successful. Typically when you reach for need is when you get burned. Teams reached for worse players and is the exact reason why guys like Dante Fowler were drafted over Leo and Corey Davis over Adams.

    Mac got plenty of criticism around here for picks like Leo and Adams when they were made. "We didn't need another IDL" and "Adams is a box safety". Lets not pretend it's been consensus around here when they were made that they were no brainers. Plus if they were clearly the best players in each draft they wouldn't have been there at 6. There were 5 other GM's who didn't take them so clearly they weren't no the easy choice when guys like worse picks like Corey Davis and Leonard Fournette were taken ahead of Adams. I'll admit I was concerned with the Adams pick because I wasn't sure he could cover. He obviously has proven me wrong in that regard and has become a superstar.

    It's consistently a knock on Mac around here though. Why shouldn't he be praised for making a good pick I don't get it at all. Because it was logical pick?
  6. 2019 Offseason Preview/FA Rumors

    Well we only picked top 5 once and that was a trade up for Sam. Why is that a knock on Mac that good players are there when he picks?
  7. I'm in agreement I think. I'd prefer good CB's over good pass rushers. If it was 2 good pass rushers or two good CB I prefer CB's. I think that's what you are saying too. @Danger I'd take two 15M dollar CB's over two 20+ million dollar pass rushers if that makes it more comparable then.
  8. A lot easier to take 1 elite pass rusher out of the game with chips and short passes then game plan around 2 great CB's who can press. Not saying it's easier to have two elite CB's just that is what I'd prefer.
  9. I would want two so I could get creative with blitz packages because I likely don't have a Von Miller type on my team. I'd bring my SS down to the box for run support ad not have to play cover 2 because of the CB talent.
  10. Give me two lockdown CB's and a great QB and I'd build around that.

    Agreed 100%. That should be your bread and butter for finding solid roll players to build around and having good depth. It's been his biggest weakness thus far. He's largely been solid in round 1 and has a few late round solid and UDFA finds who contribute but if he can't figure out rounds 2-3 he's going to continue to be average to below average.

    So am I. I'm saying 7-8 sacks this year which would put him in the 2nd team all pro range. Cox isn't really a 10+ sack guy. He averages around 6.5 for his career. He did have two big sack years with 9.5 (2015) and 10.5 (last year). Mostly though he's in the 5-6 range. If Leo does that he'll be considered among the likes of some of the best IDL in the NFL and in the 2nd team all pro running.

    I'm just going from memory on who you wanted on offense specifically in the past few years. You wanted White, Fournette, and said on numerous occasions that Metcalf was worthy of #3. You might not have taken him after how FA went but that's not the point. Point was you said he was #3 worthy. I'm not here to debate every prospect you ever wanted in the later rounds that you were right about. Truth was if you had the final say many of those guys I mentioned would have been passed on for offensive players who busted which would have been crippling for this franchise.
  14. 2019 Offseason Preview/FA Rumors

    It funny though because basically every one of your WR/RB that you have pounded the table the past few years for have busted, just saying. White (huge bust), Fournette (underwhelming and injury prone), Metcalf (yet to be determined but fell hard in the draft when you wanted him at #3). If you were GM we could of had those guys and missed on Leo, Adams and Quinnen. We have the best offensive talent we've had since probably 2010.

    Actually if he can boast his sacks to like 6 or 7 he'd basically be an 2nd team all pro DL like Fletcher Cox.
