The problem is that the Jets strategy of trading away draft picks just isn't working. It's robbing us of team depth. In addition Santonio's contract turned out to be a mistake. Signing Santonio to a big $50M contract with a $24M signing bonus in hindsight was the wrong choice. We could have turned that $24M into 4-6 solid players.
Next year it's time to cut some of the big contracts and get some solid vets in here along with a full complement of draft picks. Revis should be resigned, but beyond that, I'm not sure.
I disagree. Trading up for picks can be a good strategy. You just need to pick the right guys with those picks.
Take a look at the way Kyle Wilson plays CB. Now take a look at the way Dwight Lowrey played CB for the Jets.
What do u notice.
I notice 2 players who have a problem finding the ball when moving backwards but look much better playing the ball while moving forward.
Both Players are excellent cover 2 CBs or better at FS than they are playing bump and run or "man".
It is amazing how much better Lowrey looked in Jacksonville at FS compared to how he looked playing CB for the Jets.It is also why both players made better plays playing the slot receiver than playing on the corner.
After three years, he STILL can't turn his head around, locate the football, or defend a pass without drawing a flag.
This his most glaring problem. He plays great downhill .. And does great breaking up passes in such situations. Especially over the middle guarding the slot. But on the outside covering plays downfield he is one of the worst corners I have ever seen play the game.
WHICH IS WHY I THINK HE WOULD MAKE A BETTER SAFETY than a CB.
Hill was a stupid 2nd round pick... Have you not noticed that the Jets like to pick "projects" w/ their high picks.... You are as smart as Tannenbaum when it comes to picking talent obviously.....
Has Tannenbaum ever been a scout? Nope... Getting BB coffee and running photocopies doesn't make him anywhere near qualified to be picking players... This guy is a joke of a GM.....
Lighten up Francis. How is Hill a bad pick? A guy with off the charts measurables at a position that we sorely needed a playmaker at was a bad pick? Maybe, just maybe you wait until the guy has played more than 5 games to pronounce him a bust? Nah, its easier to call him a bust because he hasn't cracked 1000 yds yet this year.
And I never said anything about Tanny's scouting experience, I commented on you calling him out for a lack of coaching experience. Again, coaching, not scouting. And you ignored my question of how many Gms have coached in the NFL, instead you just piled on with your mindless b*tching about everything. Carry on, don't let me, or facts, or logical reasoning get in the way of your agenda.
