    Fans want a statement/message from Woody? There it is. Along with giving Tanny and Rex (plus the rest of the "coaches") their walking papers.

    Send Revis to the Redskins for a second and Kirk Cousins. Or work out a deal with Seattle for Matt Flynn.

    If the Jets work out a deal for Matt Flynn, they will be about $17M under the cap, $17M under the cap with only 35 guys under contract, and with 10 starters missing, this cap cost does not include draft costs (~$5m).

    To clarfy the Jets will spend $21M+ at QB position for Mat FLynn and Sanchez, and while some of their young players will step up. They will still need to add 15 players.

    I don't see how the Jets make it work without reworking Flynn's contract for the future, and frankly, doing that will just be kicking the can down the road, which is more dangerous for a guy who has started all of 2 games. Not to mention throwing away more draft picks.

    Just draft a QB every year if we're in the top 15

Yea I know they don't grow on trees but others trash can be our gold. Michael Vick anybody ?
    Yes to a solid experienced QB, no to Vick.

    In addition I would add that if we draft a QB, or worse have to package picks to get a QB in the draft it will hurt us for years in an area where we're already pathetically weak, overall talent and team depth.

Just watching the postgame last night it's easy to see he handles the press better than the opposing team.
    Any major corporation does succession planning for their most valuable executives. We should have the same for QB our most important position. Each year we should have a starter, a veteran backup and 2-4 up and comers in training camp. Of the 2-4 we pick one to develop. So I agree.

If anything, the Jets should consider trading Revis for a bunch of high draft picks. He'll be old and gray by the time this team is ready to contend again.
    I agree on no to trading draft picks, but I say yes to signing a solid veteran, there'll be some out there.

    Not with this receiving corps, or OL.

    This is what I've been saying.

    Cap hit be damned, get rid of Sanchez and clean house with regards to the front office.

    Sure, we'll suck for a year or two, but we suck now anyway. Why delay the inevitable?

    Some fans have this misguided thinking that we're only a few minor tweaks away simply because we're two years removed from back to back AFCC appearances. Even though the core of those teams is no longer on this roster.

    Atlanta just cut Ray Edwards even though they still owe him a sh*tload of guaranteed money. They saw that he wasn't performing, so they cut bait with his sorry ass instead of keeping him around simply because of his contract situation.

    It's time to start from scratch. I can deal with sucking for a few years (hey, we're Jets fans right?) if it means we're stocking this team with young, premier talent with top football minds in charge.

    Bring in someone like Polian at GM and a seasoned, successful veteran coach like Gruden or Cowher. A coach that won't play favorites, won't let the inmates run the asylum, and will hold players accountable and scream at their asses on the sideline when they f*ck up instead of patting them on the back.

    I'm one of those that blames the team around him more than I do Sanchez, but I absolutely agree with you that Romo is a much much better QB than Sanchez.

    I like Matt Moore, I think you let he and Sanchez fight it out next season and if there's a QB out there go for it, or pick one to develop later in the draft.

    Yates stepped in and did well for Hou. But eh.
    To summarize: Jets are screwed.

    The 2014 QB draft class DOES look pretty good though.
    How are things in Canada. Don't foolow thoise guys at all. Moon came out of there once. Flutie also.
    I really don't follow college Football but if this is accurate....then next year we clean up the cap and in the first four rounds go RB, OL, OL and WR (no particular order, BPA of those four)

    take every cap hit necessary next year and draft the best QB available in 2014

    We need OLB as well.
