I'll give you Tillman thus far.
Woodson's technically a safety.
I'd probably go like this, not including Revis:
Jonathan Joseph is Overrated.
However the new CBA has the RFA tag at 1.2mill, 1.8 if you want comp.
Revis salary is only 3 mill next year, but has a roster bonus of 3 mill also, so
I can't see how you can cut 4 mill savings from 6 mill in 2013 comp, as you have to amortize the % of new bonus into 2013
You make no allowanace for the 6 mill that you will need to alloacate to the 2013 rookie class.
You don't account for the 1.7mill of incentives that Landry earns this year
So if you let your WR catch the ball a bunch of times then tackle him, that makes you a better corner?
Cro has been absolutely incredible since Revis went out, lights out in coverage, way less penalties than the past, and much better in run support. I watch a lot of football but I'm not gonna sit here and say I analyze corners so Cro may not be THE best out there right now. But he's gotta be close.
And if some advanced stats come in and show that those other guys shut down WRs a lot better, then fine. But tackles and INTs is not gonna get it done.
This cap situation is bad. It almost reminds me of when the Knicks were in perpetual cap hell but not good at all even still. The one plus in the NFL is rebuilding can happen quickly with the amount of parity.
Unfortunately, I think this season (probably bc of the cap situation) we got stuck in a holding pattern. We kept most of the same cast of characters that underperformed last year and our weak depth has really shown through as a result of injuries.
I'm honestly getting tired of using so many early picks on defense. Probably wouldn't be as frustrated if they were hits but with how horrendous this offense consistently is we keep ignoring it.
In the past 11 drafts, back to 2002, we've taken four offensive skill players in the first two rounds of the draft, Kellen Clemens (2nd), Mark Sanchez (1st), Dustin Keller (1st), Stephen Hill (1st). If you expand that to the first three rounds, it's still just seven players, adding Chris Baker, B.J. Askew and Shonn Greene, all third round picks. That's ELEVEN years of drafting. Not one Pro Bowl-caliber player from those first round picks. Half are busts or verging on it.
Now in 2006, the Jets did take Mangold and Ferguson first round, which was huge. But you wonder why this offense has so little talent right now? Because we are not investing in it!
Of course, early round draft picks can be busts and late round picks can turn out to be successes. Maybe it's the talent evaluation that falters but the Jets are not finding the 'star' steals. They've found tough and scrappy players, like Cotchery and Leon Washington in the 4th round, even Kerley more recently who I like a lot as a slot guy.
So I know the defense is slow and old in places but the offense is just an absolute disaster. I don't want to see another pass rusher who's supposed to be the 'next Terrell Suggs' but can't get on the field be our first round pick. Let's try finding that in the 4th round instead of swinging and missing on skill players over and over later in the draft.
We have at least 6 picks (depending on the conditional pick for Otah). I understand drafting BPA but I want to see offense be a priority whether it means trading down and picking up more picks to do it. We need depth and some quality young offensive talent, a RB and another passing option whether it be a TE or WR. Hill was a start this year - he has potential - but we need much more to revitalize this offense.
Scott and Pace, although many would like to seem them get released, are not givens, and don't forget about the daunting task of re-signing LaRon Landry. Will we be able to afford giving him a four/five-year, $30-40 million contract? I'm not too sure.
With all the time he has been on the field this year he has 0 forced fumbles, less interceptions and less tackles then the best CBs in the game.
I have watched Cro for years and this year he is playing like a beast.
He still bites on fakes way to many times and during the Seattle game bit on the end around pass and got lucky he wasnt beat deep earlier as he bit again but the ball was underthrown.
I not hear to argue that Cro is not good or even playing very well this year, all Im saying in my opinion he is not the 2nd best CB in the NFL.
I LOVE Landry. I want him a jet for life
