    Lombardi's 2007 Draft Re-Write: Jets Big Winners

    [url]http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d81f38852/article/feeling-prepared-to-rewrite-one-of-my-least-favorite-drafts?module=HP_cp2[/url]


    1. Oakland Raiders
    Actual pick: JaMarcus Russell
    Do-over pick: Darrelle Revis

    With no quarterback on the roster, who could blame the Raiders for trying to solve the problem with Russell? However, in hindsight (precisely what a "do-over column" provides), picking a real shutdown corner in Revis might have been the better option. The Raiders, a team that traditionally loves corners, could have had the best pair in the league by selecting Revis and teaming him with their own Pro Bowl corner, Nnamdi Asomugha.


    Best Value by Rounds
    Second round: Three teams nailed it in the second -- the Jets, Raiders and Browns -- as OLB David Harris, TE Zach Miller and CB Eric Wright, respectively, have become productive starters for each team. It would be difficult to declare a winner in this round, but as we will learn later, the Jets have won both the first and second rounds in this draft.


    Best team draft
    As I mentioned earlier, the New York Jets hit home runs with their first two picks, Revis and Harris. The Jets only had four picks, but the first two were so good it gave them a foundation for the future.

    so when you add in 2006 which the Jets won with Brick, Nick, Leon, Eric Smith, Brad Smith and Drew Coleman to 2007 which the Jets won with Revis and Harris and compare that with the DOUBLE WHIFF by Video Bill in New England (only remaining players from those two drafts with more than 25 picks are Meriwether and a kicker) it becomes easy to see why the Jets have now moved ahead of the Cheaters as the best team in the AFC East.

    not to mention our franchise quarterback, power running back and starting LG in 2009

    Barring the fact that the article is about the Jets draft in 2007, which I admit was indeed excellent as was, to a lesser degree 2006, what does this have to do with the Pats poor 2006 draft? Why does EVERYTHING always come back around to the Pats for you, (except maybe the most awesomest stadium thread).

    Oh, and win the division for once and then you can legitimately thump your chest that you've passed the Pats as best team in the AFCE.:yes:

    Sure didn't hurt, but the other 52 guys on the roster have also had a hand in the success, maybe more than most any other team.

    not one of those from the 2006 draft

    and not much more worth anything from the 2007 2008 and 2009 drafts

    whiffing bill may have finally come out of his four year whiff in 2010, I'll grant you that one


    but the Jets proved (WHEN IT MATTERED) that the cheaters were in their rear view mirror as far as talent was concerned

    since wireless disabled video bill's tape library

    THREE YEARS

    ZERO POSTSEASON WINS

    They weren't slam dunk years, but they weren't whiffs either. 2007 was weak with only Meriweather (meh) to speak of. Although Bill did get Moss and Welker using draft picks, so they count. 2008 saw Mayo where the Jets picked Gholston, one of the biggest whiffs in NFL history. '09 brought Brace, Vollmer and Edelman. The draft is risky, is that your point?

    edit: And when Sanchez finally rises to above the bottom 20% of all NFL QBs he may deserve the "franchise" designation you place on him arbitrarily.

    Oh man the Jets drafting has been incredible the past few years. There's no way this team hasn't won a Superbowl since collecting all this talent. Certainly they must have won an AFC championship? Well at the very least an AFC east championship? Hmmmm. Just in case lets hang our hat on Rex dominating the Patriots 3-2 the past two seasons and having a better draft in 2006 and 2007. Just don't mention Vernon Gholston and no one will notice.

    and since you are now desperately trying to include players you picked up for draft choices -- welker and moss (who is he playing for now?)

    I guess I'll add in Holmes, Edwards and Cromartiie as Jet draft picks since 2006

    and you can subtract Vrabel and Cassel who BB gave away for "Fake Punt" Chung

    If your ultimate goal is to come out on top of your meetings with the Pats every year, only to sh!t the bed in the end, as it appears it is for you, then I guess your team is more of a success and Sanchez is a franchise QB first ballot HOF lock.


    (and in 5 career head to heads Suckchize is 3-3? ...absolutely brilliant Skippy!)

    Last 3 drafts have been awful.

    Gholston- Biggest draft bust in Jets history.

    Sanchez- Sorry you dont trade up to the top 5 pick in the draft for a QB with a low 50% completion percentage and 70 rating.

    Kyle Wilson- Who?

    Dont understand how Terry Bradway the mastermind of the Dwane Robertson and Doug Jolly trade is still with this organization.

    Sanchez is a 23 year old kid who played 1 year i college.

    Might want to stop crying about his completion % and give him some time to grow up. He's been in the AFC championship in his first 2 seasons.

    apparently Minimus thinks that each team only gets ONE pick in each draft

    2008 Gholston yep, he sucked but -- also Keller (terrific TE) and Lowery

    2009 Sanchez, Greene and Slaussen -- two home runs and a starting LG in round 6

    2010 - Wilson will be the starting nickel, McKnight will be the HB with Greene when Tomlinson leaves after this season and Conner is probably your probowl fullback after this season

    Chad Pennington >>> John Elway? Better rating and much better completion %. That's how it works right?

    Greene and Sanchez=Home Runs? Puh-leeze, nice players and all but hardly proven slam dunks. May happen, but hasn't yet. Slaussen is a servicable guard, nothing more. Wilson will start as the nickel? Has he stopped puking yet? McKnight and Green as your running back tandem? Good luck with that. And Conner is a Pro-Bowler now? Your tinted glasses are especially green today Skip.

    Of course you fail to also mention how this year it's time pay the bill for past moves when you have only 3 picks in the first 4 rounds vs. 7 for the Pats. I'll stick with ole Bill the Whiffer.:rolleyes:

    great

    keep sticking with his whiffs

    prior to 2006 the Pats build a very good team with a combination of Pioli's final calls on the draft and Video Bills cheating on the field

    Before the 2006 draft, Video Bill threatened to "retire" if he wasn't given final say over the draft in order to "buy the groceries"

    prior to 2006, the Patriots pretty much drafted where their position came up and drafted wisely stockpiling the Vrabels, Warrens, Wilforks, Bruschis etc that build their franchis

    since 2006 Video Bill has spent most of every draft trading down, trading for futures and, although this has led to as many as 14 picks in a draft (including compensatories), a huge number ...


    the fruits of all this wheeling and dealing are as follows

    2006 -- 12 picks, not a single one of them still on the roster, most out of football

    2007-- 10 picks -- Meriwether (that's all folks)

    2008-- 14 picks -- Mayo who after his first excellent year has pretty much become an inside linebacker not even close to David Harris class (last seen missing a tackle that allowed Shonn Greene to scamper into the endzone putting the final nail in the Cheaters postseason of 2011

    2009= shuffled his way out of the first round entirely and ended up with Pat "Fake Punt" Chung and assorted other marginals like Darius Butler and Brandon Tate with his usual 10 plus picks

    2010 - finally what appears to be a decent draft with McCourty at the top -- too early to tell if he has finally learned the first thing about drafting, though
