I do enjoy our north south run game, though. :yes:
The offense is NOT talented. They score a average of 10 points per game.
This team overall is pure garbage.
With the number of quality players leaving the Jets each year, we would need a college draft to produce for us at least 8 quality starters each year. Even a football genius like Bellichek can not do this. Forget quality free agents coming here. They don't want to play for this circus and we can't pay them the big bucks. So if our HC and GM can't produce these number of college picks, we are not getting in or thru the playoffs.
There will be cap room next year, and it needs to be spent carefully, hopefully with Mike Tannenbaum figuring the #'s, and a better talent evaluator calling the shots at draft and FA time (Woody Johnson)
Tanny has made some good picks and has whiffed on some -- just like every other GM in the league. The jets just happen to be a team that whiffs while always swinging for the fences.
You'll cry when you hear this, but remember, Kyle Wilson was taken before Gronk and Jimmy Graham. Lots and lots of dudes were taken before Gronk (42nd overall) and Graham (95th). At the time, Wilson looked like a better pro than Gronk and Graham ... and judging by their overall selection #, the Jets weren't the only teams warm on the TEs. Of course they are great now because of their obnoxiously good QBs.
That is because the NFL draft is a complete crap shoot. Totally different game than college. Saying a team or GM drafts well is BS ... a ton of luck is involved.
Jay Cutler was traded for 2 first round picks
Carson Palmer traded for 2 first round picks
What will sanchez get in the open market? Are you trying to sell me Mark ****ing Sanchez is a good top 5 overall pick? That was a horrendous pick that will haunt this franchise for the next decade. Why for so long? Because the Jets will give Mark another chance to start next year and he will get to a point where he is a below mediocre QB instead of just a horrific QB. Rex will always have a good defense that with just a bland QB will get enough wins to be 8-8 or 9-7 and maybe sneak into the playoffs. A record not bad enough to dump the handpicked "franchise QB" So instead of having something special with a great defense we will be cursed to always fight for a wildcard with out ****y QB who we are stuck with for a LOOOOOOOOOOOOONG *** time. Thanks Mike Tannenbaum I really appreaciate that pick great job ***wipe.
Most of those guys are starters because our depth sucks... which goes back to that whole "Tanny & Rex suck at drafting" thing...
