But just because you've made previous errors doesn't mean you should compound those with additional errors. If you can get Revis for sub 12mm a year give him a five year deal (just under a 60mm total contract) and let him retire a Jet. I would LOVE that...
But....If you believe he's going to demand 15mm and you can get a 1st for him this year (as 2013 is a waste anyway) then we should...
We're not going to play the NFC West and AFC South QBs next season, instead we have the NFC North and AFC West.
Here are the QBs we'll be facing next season:
Tom Brady x2
Yeah, lets get rid of the best defensive back in the game just in time for them :rolleyes:
Oh and P.S:
Whoever said you can't build a defense around an all world CB is ridiculous. How do you think we got our sacks the last 3 seasons? It sure as hell wasn't because of the likes of Bryan Thomas, Calvin Pace, and Jamaal Westerman. It was all coverage sacks. How did Aaron Maybin do when Revis was on the field last year? and how did he do this year? Oh ok just making sure.
How much is that? Match the pay of the top CB in the league? beat that by a mm a year? 3mm a year?
Pay him the equivalent of the top DE?
Try and be specific because I'm hearing so much.."We can't trade Revis" talk and it seems like a blanket statement. Of course there's a line...Where is it?
EVERY Jet fan would LOVE to keep Revis but also understands, in order to build a team that will compete every year, it might make more sense to trade him.
I am a diehard Jet fan and I absolutely love Revis but a football team is a team. You simply can't pay a cornerback that kind of money. Even if Revis was totally healthy this season - the best corner ever - how many games do the Jets win ? Maybe 7 or 8 at most. So you hamstring your whole team to have the best corner and you win 7 games? It's just not worth it. Sorry but it's just not effective putting that much money at that position. That's the bottom line.
There is nothing more to it. You put your money at the most important position - QB. Simple as that.
I dont understand NOT resigning Revis. Where are we putting money elsewhere? What are the good free agent QBs we should get that are good enough so we can forget about Revis? Where is all the talent?
