We put money on Sanchez and tried to build around him. Look at how that turned out.
I dont understand NOT resigning Revis. Where are we putting money elsewhere? What are the good free agent QBs we should get that are good enough so we can forget about Revis? Where is all the talent?
You miss the point I would love for Revis to retire a Jet.. But knowing his history I doubt if he is here past next season.. I think HE will make it impossible to resign him.. BTW what big players did we build around Sanchez?? Holmes??
In football history how many teams were built around a CB???
I don't buy into this hold building around an individual player thing. Football is a team sport. I can see picking a system that favors your players, but building a team around a player, I don't even know what that means.
What are some examples of teams building a team around a player. Who did Indy bring in to build around Peyton?
Who specifically did the Pats bring in to build around Brady? Their receivers and RBs are OK, but not superstars. Only guy who really panned out for them was Gronkowski and he was a 2nd round pick and arrived several years after Brady.
There are some teams that are built around the running game and perhaps a great back, but not as common nowadays.
I am a diehard Jet fan and I absolutely love Revis but a football team is a team. You simply can't pay a cornerback that kind of money. Even if Revis was totally healthy this season - the best corner ever - how many games do the Jets win ? Maybe 7 or 8 at most. So you hamstring your whole team to have the best corner and you win 7 games? It's just not worth it. Sorry but it's just not effective putting that much money at that position. That's the bottom line.
There is nothing more to it. You put your money at the most important position - QB. Simple as that.
Trading Revis makes no sense. He is our best player that counts very little against the cap. Also with only one year left his contract, no team will give too much in compensation because he can be a free agent after the coming season.
Revis will be worth at least a 1st round pick. Maybe two.
A conditional 3rd? That would be the worst trade in the history of football.
No, he won't.
Franchise QB's are worth multiple 1st round picks. Not CB's who, no matter how great they are, only take away one single player.
We're talking about a guy who, let's face it, doesn't play a very important position, is coming off a season in which he shredded his knee, and wants to be the highest paid defensive player in the league.
You're batsh*t crazy if you think anyone is giving up a 1st round pick, much less MULTIPLE 1st round picks, for that.
