SF ran for 250 yards on us that game.
Wilson threw 2 TDs and SEA ran for 189 yards that game, Lynch running all over us.
Andrew Luck was a Rookie with a lot on his shoulders who didn't exactly have the best year throwing the ball, lets be honest, and Rex got the best of him. Despite that he still threw for 280 yards.
So, the only example of a QB (based more on his potential than his statistical QB prowess) that we actually stopped that's worth a damn was Luck and he still threw the ball for 280 yards. That's not a miserable performance. Let's be honest here, the Jets ate the lunches of the garbage QBs and routinely got picked apart by the good QBs and they also were run all over all season long which is why they had the 3rd fewest pass attempts thrown against them despite being in the bottom half of the league in points given up.
Sorry, I don't think our defense played well this year at all. You do. And you think because of your perception of the defense this year that it makes Revis expendable. I disagree.
But you are right, the offense needs a serious over haul at the QB, RB and Guard positions. I don't think you need to trade Revis to accomplish that, especially in the draft this year. Warmack at #9, Ball in the 2nd round (I hope) and look at all QBs available in the 3rd round via trade for a veteran or actually drafting a guy, FA guys available... etc... that will go a long way to fixing the offenses problems without trading anyone on our team and filling 2 huge offensive holes with cheap but highly productive alternatives... assuming those players I've mentioned actually do what people expect them to do.
Let me put it this way...
If Darrell Revis was a Denver Bronco this year they would never have lost that Divisional Round game to the Ravens, and if they don't lose that game to the Ravens there's a very good chance they would have beaten the Patriots in the Championship Game, and if they beat the Patriots in the AFCCG then they're in the Superbowl. That's how much difference Darrell Revis makes to the Denver Broncos next season.
The Broncos need this guy. They have the cap space and a lower 1st rounder to offer. They need to get this thing done.
Any of the top teams who need a CB are going to be selecting a CB in the 1st round anyway. Why take a chance on the unknown when you can have THE KNOWN? The Broncos are going to make this thing happen because they can't have another Champ Bailey torch game like they had against the Ravens. Bailey cost them a shot at the Superbowl this year, that's not ever going to happen again. Revis is a Bronco next season for sure.
unless someone here is good friends with revis, I would like to know where this 14/15 million dollar figure is coming from. has revis ever stated that is what he wants or is this just conjecture on our part?
Niners ran the ball well, but so much of it came after the game was decided, and the only reason the game was decided despite the mediocre/bad games by Smith and Gore (neither played well) was because of the absolutely pitiful Jets offense.
Luck was HORRIBLE in that game, that you would cite to his garbage time yards when his team was getting blown out is boxscore reading at its best.
Wilson struggled early and took a sack fumble. Lynch was bottled up in the 1st half, couldn't do anything. So what happened? Hmmm that's right our offense kept turning it over or going 3 and out again... and again... and again... and eventually the D caved late 3rd quarter. Notice a theme?
Who really picked us apart? Big Ben, but he has a remarkable ability to extend plays which hurt us, and the Wallace TD pass was just a hail mary prayer anyway (one of the few Cro played badly all season). Brady I guess you could say did in the 2nd game in MetLife, but our offense and special teams handed them 2 free scores in the 2nd quarter that made that game a laugher and our entire D basically quit after that. But it's also Tom Brady!
Having said all of that very often teams that make the most sense to have an interest in things like this instead diddle around because they hate trading picks.
Holding on to picks is great unless you're looking at the sure thing, and Revis is the sure thing.
as long as the first rounder is a top 10 then things will work out. revis is certainly the best at his position but for maybe another 4 seasons assuming he can come back from the acl. and that's assuming he doesn't get another injury. not saying he's injury prone but we all saw him a couple of season's ago get his hamstring after holding out. he's going to hold out again if the jets try to keep him and he really needs to go this off season before he becomes a free agent.
He'll either sign with the Jets or he'll get traded. I don't think you need to trade Revis to better the team. At this point you're just saying that Revis costs too much, regardless if we have the room or not to sign him.
You don't need Revis to win a Super Bowl ... you're right about that. But he makes the defense a hole lot better.
The Seahawks scenario is too far-fetched for me, but Denver would seem like legitimate fit. They are really in a win-now situation.
I could see us getting a 1 + 3 this year, plus a player - and a 4/5 next year.
I still shudder to think that the Jets are capable of making the best of this situation.
Thomas after next year. That is 3 contracts that will be between 8-10 mill a year, add that to Dumervil's 8 mill and Peyton's 25 mill you got more than 1/2 the cap in 5 players. Now you want to add Revis 12 mill to make it That is 6 guys making 72 mill and 47 guys making 1 mill each.
