In fairness, you or I could go out there and be successful against the Cardinals
Anyway, Laron Landry is playing lights out. That's what's important!
Also I didn't know having 2 catches on 10 targets for 22 yards is considered having your way with somebody .
Our secondary is outstanding and that's without the best db in the game.
Yeremiah Bell too us been quietly excellent,underrated in coverage and very reliable tackler.
Apparently it's illegal to praise Tannenbaum or Ryan but remember how dire our safeties were last year?well for next to nothing we have totally revamped and even if Landry isn't re-upped I think Antonio Allen can play.
The Kyle Wilson hate is lolworthy,very solid corner who is still improving and there are more than a few teams would love a cb as 'bad' as him to be their no1 never mind no3.Wilson tackles as well as any cb not called Revis that I've seen.Seen him prevent a number of first downs by not only stopping his man stone dead on contact but actually knocking them backwards.
He'll even Cromartie has started putting in some hits.
Really hope we can keep Landry but even if not he's provided us with an excellent year for next to nothing when many felt this was a bad move that would only end badly.
Nobody ever thought that Landry was any less than a top 3-5 Safety in the NFL.
That does not change the fact that he has some serious Achilles' issues and if you need to understand what happens when you pay a guy like him what he's worth and the Achilles' pops (who the hell would insure him?) and what happens to your salary cap you don't understand why Landry should not be signed for longer than 3 years with next to no guaranteed money.
That doesn't change the fact that he will get a 5 year deal with a lot of guaranteed money elsewhere.
If this team dumps that much more cash into the secondary, then Tannenbaum has to be fired.
It's arguable that even Revis should be locked up.
did you ever really watch mccourtey play? he was drafted right before and he's not exactly all world. wilson does have some faults but he's made some progress.
as for landry, he has certainly made some nice plays (clocking edelman was the only jet bright spot against the patsies) and he comes to play each game. the question is what happens if the jets lock him to a large contract? he's had injury problems and he could easily fall into a comfort zone like other highly paid jet players. i guess it all matter s on how much he asks for and what kind of incentives can be built in.
Keep the guy in Green.
He, along with Mo Wilk and Cro, have been the lone bright spots on this season.
Yeremiah Bell also. The guy has had a very solid year and it needs to be recognized more than it is around here.
We cannot afford the money that landry will be given, and it is simply bad cap management to pay a player like him. He has been very good and injury free this year, but its not personal, there is a cap and the position is not one of value.
If he is willing to sign a 3 year contract for $3milllion per season, that would be an excellent signing for us, but given his high ceiling of talent, I would suspect he can potentially double that on the open market.
We have to deal with revis, potentially getting $15 million per season along with cro who is making $8million. We cannot afford to have a safety even making $5 million....it is simply bad allocation of cap space to pay that much for your defensive secondary.
If we are able to trade Cro, which again has NOTHING to do with his play, as he has been unbelievably good this year, then maybe we can afford to pay landry, but outside of that possibility, we have no choice but to let him go, and take the compensatory pick.
I would rather pay Landry 6 mil a season than pay Revis 16 million. The only player that should be getting that kind of money should be the Jets starting QB if they had a decent one. This team has too many needs and spending 16 million on a cornerback would cripple the rest of the team. I love Revis but I don't think he's gonna get Hugh money from the Jets on his next contract.
Then he'll blow out his Achilles and his uninsured contract will destroy cap space for years to come.
Landry is awesome. But he's playing on two ticking time bombs that surgery can't even guarantee correction of.
