    Crazy as SAR is, he does have a point. Sanchez has no weapons around him and the o-line is awful. Not many quarterbacks in the entire league could work with what Sanchez has. With some weapons on offense in 2009 and 2010, the Jets went to the AFC championship game. Give Sanchez some solid pieces and the team can compete. This offense would struggle against college teams.

    Playmakers? With Curtis Martin? The NFL told us it was unfair to draft playmakers since we already had CuMar.

    Sorry.

    What you have given up those four picks for the evil man in the hoodie?

    If I recall, one of those 4 first round picks were awarded to the Jets for the Pats tampering with Belichek or something like that.

    The correct answer to the question is Santana Moss.

    WR/RB/TE taken in the first three rounds in the Tannenbaum era.

    2012: Stephen Hill
    2011: None
    2010: None
    2009: Shonn Green
    2008: Dustin Keller
    2007: None
    2006: None

    Is it really a shock we have no playmakers on this team?

    We should suck this year get a high pick and trade down for more picks

    The odd thing is you could almost put together a pro bowl quality team from all the guys we traded away, or released, i.e.

    John Abraham, Kerry Rhodes, Alan Faneca, Braylon Edwards, Leon Washington, Joel Dreesen, Jonathan Vilma, Pete Kendall, Jerrico Cotchery, and the real puzzler, Dwight Lowery.

    Moss, but with no QB to throw it to him and trading him away. Wasn't here too long.

    During that same time, Pittsburgh:

    2012: None
    2011: None
    2010: Emmanuel Sanders
    2009: Mike Wallace
    2008: Rashard Mendenhall, Limas Sweed
    2007: Matt Spaeth
    2006: Santonio Holmes, Willie Reid

    New England:

    2012: None
    2011: Shane Vereen, Stevan Ridley
    2010: Rob Gronkowski, Taylor Price
    2009: Brandon Tate
    2008: None (Spygate)
    2007: None
    2006: Laurence Maroney, Chad Jackson, David Thomas


    You're not going to hit on every draft pick-- but you have to give yourself a CHANCE to hit on some playmakers...

    This really does explain a lot.

    The game is skewed toward scoring these days and the Jets for no apparent reason put no priority on skill positions every year.

    In the biggest games, under the highest pressure, Mark Sanchez played his best.

    He's passed the tryout; time to get him some support.

    look no further than this.

    i think tanny has been too influenced by two very defensive-minded head coaches and that's reflected in his drafting. if jim harbaugh were the hc you wouldn't have this. tanny is not a football guy and has trusted his coaches too much and that's why they keep drafting defense in the first round. he relies on the hc as much as the scouts.

    They technically hit on 3 out of 4, so not a terrible decision, but the Jets could have been living off those four picks for several years had it been played differently.
    When the Patriots started to take the trade down for more picks route, many fans were upset. They followed college ball, knew the players and had strong opinions about who the correct picks should be, and that they shouldn't be passing on certain players.

    The problem with that thinking is that the draft is a crap shoot, and you can sometimes get true quality players later in the draft, or even after the draft, so if you are getting more picks then the chances you'll hit are better.

    As the years have gone on we can see the benefit of those moves by the Pats. They now have quality and depth, mainly because they've had so many more picks than anyone else.
