Enough with this WR crap!
I may be in the minority here but I am totally fed up with the obsession about the WR position. I intend to address all three of the complaints about our WR situation; Philosophy; Draft; Free Agency/Trade options.
First: The Jets team Philosophy. The Jets are attempting to build a great defense and an offense that runs the ball effectively. They are not, and have no immediate plans to become, a passing team ala the Colts and Cardinals. The Jets will creat shorte fields for the offense by forcing turnovers and having solid special team units.
Second: It is often a total waste to draft a WR early in the draft, especially in the 1st round. They take too long to develop, if they even develop at all. For every Fitz, Andre Johnson, and Calvin Johnson; there are at least five more like Troy Williamson, Reggie Williams, Peter Warrick, David Terrell, Charles Rogers, etc. Even the elite WR's listed above, the so-called athletic freaks, taken early in the first did not make much of an impact until at least their second year. None of the WR's in this draft are likely to make much of an impact until their third year. Also, the Jets apparently tried to get back into the 1st to take Percy Harvin. The fact that they tried should help to quell some of you that desire a reciever above all else.
Third: The free agent options many of you are whining about. If the only issue to acquire Anquan Boldin was a 2nd round pick, the whole league would be interested. Anquan Boldin wants like $10 million per year. He is not anywhere close to worth that kind of money. On to Braylon Edwards. Keyshawn once stated the guy could not "catch a cold on a rainy day in Alaska." And finally the newest name being thrown around, Plaxico Burress. The guy is a headache. He cares only about himself, skips practices and meetings, and creates unnecessary distractions. He will require more time and effort than he could possibly be worth.
I am ecstatic that the Jets avoided the temptation of taking a WR. The Jets might even be pleasantly surprised if one of the young wideouts already on the roster develops this year.
