I think the formula of increasing the round by one for a 2014 pick is pretty questionable - probably on a par with the old draft pick value calculator.
We know Revis is a great player, undoubtedly one of the best of his generation - but we also know that the Jets lack real leverage because its essentially the Bucs or bust.
The QB situation is a mess, hopefully that will be somewhat clearer by 2014 when the Jets will be in a situation to draft or possibly trade for a QB.
The roster has undergone quite alot of turnover - its mainly good turnover - guys brought in for one last push - guys that were really kept around at least 1 season too many (the drop off in the LBers was pretty amazing).
Idzik should make a deal for 2014 picks - don't worry about what the pundits have to say about 'value' - time to move on from Revis and the headaches he presents and start rebuilding a new roster than can take us to the post-season.
Is T.B. ,Sending Posters To Try & Persuade Idzik now?
He probably wants that first to trade for a teams next 2 years 1st round picks, because they should be worth a 2nd and a 3rd right? I still think that's just silly. It only works that way when someone really wants a player available during the draft, and then it may be a late 1st equivalent to a mid 2nd. No one would trade next years 1st for this years 2nd right now. That's just dumb. Otherwise as I said before I would trade my entire draft 2nd-7th every year. Then after one year you'd have 2 1st round picks every year. See how dumb that sounds?
Ding ding dong.. Can we stop already with "what we will settle for" bs? If you were the gm of the jets and told them "that's what you will settle for" we wouldn't get more than a Nickle's worth for revis.. Ok "maybe" the last pick in the 3rd round of 2015.. Because they or every other team would laugh and tell the jets " we will just keep our picks and sign him in 11 months" Lets just support izdik and quit playing fantasy gm. Want the most out of revis, but it's beyond obvious we are not getting the bucks 1st this yr and next.
Josh Freeman is suddenly going to get better because Revis was traded to the team and they suddenly win games. Yeah. Right. Sure. Tampa with or without Revis is not making the playoffs next year.
New Orleans is getting Sean Payton back, the Panthers should be improved, and Atlanta is still one of the top teams in the NFC.
It's not farfetched at all to think that Tampa could finish dead last in their division.
Since when the hell does a CB put a team over the top?
How'd Tampa do last season? Right. Freeman, another soon to be out of league over weight cough syrup sipper.
2012 - 7-9
2011 - 4-12 (10 game losing streak)
2010 - 10-6
2009 - 3-13
You feel comfortable going into another season with Freeman as the QB? I can't see a reasonable Buc fan excited about Revis, imo, tying up 15 Million a year in Revis is nuts.
Why is this not done by now????
