    I am a big eternal champion thread, your threads bring quality insight to the board and you are willing to say things the mainstream pundits don't have the balls to say.

    Well how's this for starters. The Patriots are known for paying their valued practice squad players very well in order to retain them and disincentive a jump to another team's active roster. It's not a waiver process where a team can just steal another team's practice players at will in some childish form of bullying. (albeit akin to the class retard trying to bully the straight A student high school QB)

    I'm talking about when they cut a player from their active roster, wait for him to clear waivers, and then sign him to the PS. At that time, we can put a claim on the player and the player has no choice but to come here.

    I keep waiting for the punchline. But it never comes.

    To be fair, the Pats did this with Jake Ballard earlier in the year and it really pissed off Tom Coughlin.

    Well the distinction here is that Ballard is a very good player and the Giants made a gross miscalculation in putting him on waivers. Here, Eternal Champion thinks the Jets should be making roster moves that fail to benefit the Jets at all. He just wants to piss the Patriots off by interfering with their juggling of special teams caliber players. Oh and then bully them into giving the Jets draft picks to make them stop.

    Brilliant thread.

    If the Jets do this to the other 31 teams, they might be able to get 10 first rounders a year. EternalChampion for Jets GM..

    Brilliant!!!!!!!

We also know that New England likes to manage the back-end of their roster: cutting players, resigning them to the practice squad, elevating them, etc. What if we spent some energy on messing with their rhythm? Claim guys that they waive and hope to put on the PS. Sign away their PS players. Piss them off a little bit and make life less comfortable than they're used to. Throw them off their game. It won't make our team better, but it will make their team worse. A zero sum game.

    So why do it? Well, once they're frazzled, then make an offer: we'll stop if they give us a favorable trade. Could be draft picks, could be players. But hey, we're a team with nothing to lose and they're a team with everything to lose. Take advantage of it.
    So in other words what you're saying is: If the New England Patriots put a cadaver on their practice squad, the Jets should pick the cadaver up and place it on their active roster?

    The Pats were in a position they could sign Ballard and then put him on the IR for the year.

    If he comes back 100%, can you imagine the Pats 3-TE set with Gronk, Hernandez and Ballard?

    Exactly. That way, anybody who needs a fake injury can hack off a part and throw it in the MRI machine.

    They don't hold a candle to the Jets Keller/ Koy Reuland/ Kody Epps trio

    I was trying to validate his thoughts so he would post more of them for us. Don't worry about it, seriously, I already get it, I said that specifically for him.

    You are definitely an unconventional thinker. You make both Jets fans and chowds think harder about their positions on many issues. Keep telling us your thoughts.

    So you're proposing a hybrid blackmail/guerilla war approach? Didn't Squidward try something similar with SpongeBob and Patrick at the Krusty Krab?

    It's pure genius regardless.
