acquiring bowe would allow us to be able to shed some of the scrub wrs on the roster.
Its amazing how many fans can complain about Tanny while watching the Ravens, Pats, Steelers and now Texans consistently succeed by NOT signing free agents, and instead drafting players and yet they still want us to go out and give up draft picks to give huge contracts to players with a history of giving less then maximum effort.
You know who were "scrub WRs" - Victor cruz and Antonio Brown.
Trading for and signing bowe, would not only be an atrocious combination of poor roster management and salary cap allocation, but it would stunt the developement of Hill and Kerley, 2 players who have looked great so far and are signed to team friendly contracts.
The Ravens addressed their wr issue through free agency a few years back w anquan boldin. The pats have done the same thing with randy moss, brandon lloyd.Its amazing how many fans can complain about Tanny while watching the Ravens, Pats, Steelers and now Texans consistently succeed by NOT signing free agents, and instead drafting players and yet they still want us to go out and give up draft picks to give huge contracts to players with a history of giving less then maximum effort.
Brandon Lloyd signed a 3 year 12 million dollar contract with the Pats. If Bowe will come to the Jets for 3 years 12 million, I am all for it.
has there ever been a less likable guy then holmes? i am jet fan...ill root for the devil if he is wearing a jets jersey...but santonio is something...ive never seen anyone complain harder after after every single play every time the ball comes his way.

Moss was had for a 4th round pick and agreed to restructure a deal that he had already signed, which meant the Pats didnt have to pay a signing bonus or give him a long term extension.
Has boldin been a great signging for them? Or did they still continue to use picks on torrey smith, pitta, dickson and tandon doss until they hit with smith and the TEs?
I've liked this guy since his LSU days. Always knew he would he would be a great receiver in this league.
Rex, Tanny GO GET HIM!
Oh and Brandon Lloyd has 1 Td
Thats less then stephen hill and kerley and the same amount as jason hill.
Whats all this love with Kerley? Can we pencil him in for the hall of fame? I mean, he does get open three times a game.
i mentioned this last night. tanny is in a save his ass mode. he needs to improve this team here and now. bowe improves this team.
we are under the cap and with ensuing cuts in the off season of pace scott smith and others this makes sense. sure schillens and hill are here cheap but we need a playmaker on offense now.
I run to do that deal. Throw in Tebow if needed
If we give up a second round pick for Bowe and pay him in the offseason making him be our big FA signing for 2013....how do we fill the holes created by cutting pace, scott, BT, and brandon moore.
If demario steps in for bart (cost is $0) we still need to find the following Starting positions.
RG - For moore
RB - For Greene
TE - For Keller
S - Landry is on a 1 year deal
2 OLBs - for pace and scott
How do we do that if we pay $9 million a year to Bowe without a 2nd round draft pick to fill one of the holes.
