RookieDraft Joe Everett
Just heard some bad news on S Mark Barron #Alabama that he has a double sports hernia and will be out until at least July/August
I didnt want him with our first round pick anyway.
What is a double sports hernia. Sounds awful.
Best news of the draft so far. I wanted nothing to do with him in the first round.
IMO this is great news for us. If he falls into the 2nd round that would be a steal. I don't care if he is on the PUP til mid season....that would be exceptional value.
Bad for him but great news for everyone who wanted no part in taking a 1st round safety.
That would be sick if he fell to round 2 and we could get him. I would love it if we got a OLB/DE round 1 then Mark Barron round 2.
He would have fallen either way.
I do not think he would have had a good combine.
This may end up working out to his benefit.
in my opinion this is the biggest travesty of rex's avoiding the offense. they thought they could fast forward it all by surrounding sanchez with troublesome wrs and crappy RTs/TEs, believing the defense could overcome it all. now the jets need an upgrade on virtually every single position on offense, in addition to pass rusher, safety and olb.
The big need on offense is better QB play...Sure, fixing the OL is right there with it, but a good to great QB makes helps an OL (and everyone else) look better than they are.
They'd have at least 6 other picks + FA to add offensive talent...by offensive talent we're talking WR, TE, and RT...Not exactly first round priority positions unless a superior talent is sitting there.
contrast this with the better teams in the nfl, which surround their qbs with multiple weapons on offense, rbs who can run and catch so they can be factors in the passing game and TEs who can block and catch, not TEs who can only do one or the other.
sanchez has chemistry with all of one target, keller, and not coincidentally, he's the only target who's been with the jets for all of sanchez's 3 seasons. there's no continuity, no plan and no rex in that offense for the past 3 years.
the team's crosstown rival just won the superbowl with a high powered offense, narrowly beating the jets' main nemesis which boasts one of the best qbs of all time. then you have the jets sitting there saying they want to run the ball, except they have all of one rb, no RT, no blocking TEs and 1 wr who can stretch a defense. it's really pathetic.
Really just Sanchez and Greene? No franchise LT or C? No pass catching TE? No possession guys (Cotch and Plaxico)? Can we stop pretending the Jets have done anything but surround Sanchez with as much talent as a QB can ask for?
The better teams have consistent, quality QBs. That is a fact. Sanchez is neither of those.
