    The guy was also reportedly unhappy with living in NY. It didn't suit him and he was happy to bolt to Tampa

    [QUOTE=Dimitri_0515;4383355]He's overachieved in New England. He's hit his peak. Any other team in the NFL and he'd be cut.[/QUOTE]

    Yup...Keep thinking that. And so what if he has? Nobody said he would be the next Walter Payton!

    He was a role player...The Jet fan base wants to build the equivalent of the Basketball dream team, when in reality, what you need are guys like a Woodhead, you get for cheap, who are their for one or two reasons, and that is how you use them.

    Funny, Pats picked him up in an instant, just like they have many other guys. How does that seem to work for them, in comparison to the Jets?

    Guess that guy in Cleveland is going to lose his job, since Phil Dawson was franchised. I wonder what that GM in New England is doing after franchising Adam Viniteiri a few years ago?

    No bloody wonder!

    He was drafted in the second round and touted as the missing piece to the Super Bowl in one of the worst cities as far as media and fan pressure!

    Kickers typically do not hit their stride (after 30 or so) until later in their careers, just like baseball pitchers. What did we really expect from a 23 year old kid?

    Mike Brown can't fire himself (at least as far as I know of).

    Dawson is VERY underrated. If he ever hits the free agent market, he probably won't last long IMO.

    [QUOTE=PatsFanTX;4382594]Danny Woodhead says hi.[/QUOTE]

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but the decision of who to cut was between Woodhead and McKnight, correct?

    Woodhead has been a nice player for the Pats and good for him, but to imply the Jets made a bad decision not keeping him over McKnight is just ridiculous.

    I seem to remember they needed a spot for Coles who was going to fill in during the Holmes 4 game suspension..

    [QUOTE]March 4, 2016 - RotoWorld

    The Tennessee Titans today placed the Franchise Tag on QB [COLOR="RoyalBlue"][U]Mark Sanchez[/U][/COLOR] after not being able to come to a longterm deal with veteran signal caller. Acquired via Free Agency in 2014, the Titans QB who has benefited from a change in scenery following good but unspectacular seasons with the New York Jets, will be paid the average of the Top 5 QBs in the NFL unless a longterm deal is reached. Sanchez was 4th in the League in Total Touchdowns (passing, rushing) in 2015, and led the Titans to 12 wins while passing for 4,290 yards.[/QUOTE]

    Interesting.

    No way would I take Woodhead over McKnight.

    Mike Nugent sucked a big hairy d1ck when he was on the Jets. Jets made the right call canning him in favor of Feely who was better. Even Folk is better. Just b/c by some fluke he had a decent season for the Bengals 4 years later changes nothing - I've seen Nuge choke some important fg's for Cincy too.

    [B]I do however mourn the loss of Steve Weatherford. WTF Tanny[/B]

    Huge difference. AV was worth every penny in NE and also in Indy.

    No, it was between Woodhead and Clowney.
