Thread: Are you satisfied with how the Jets resolved the Revis situation?

  1. #81
    Good trade. Most important - a salary dump. Lots of freed money.
    For that the Jets get #13 and a whatever (3-4) next year.
    Did the Jets have ANY other suckers out there? Nope. Guess why.

    Revis already saying he may not be ready for 2013 start. Same old same old. A serious POS the Jets are lucky to be done with.

    Now what to do with their 8 and 13?

    Thumbs down

    they got the best they could, but they also put themselves in this mess in the first place...net,net LOSS

    Yes. Revis has the opportunity to hold out or get his guaranteed money next year. He had no leverage with the injury so he couldn't get guarantee money. He plays back to his ALL-Pro and things will change. I can't see him playing 6 years without guarantee money especially after going through 1 knee injury.

    To me this contract will have a part 2 after this season based on how he plays and if he doesnt get hurt. I think if the Jets kept him and he played well this upcoming season, then he's asking for 100 million with 40 guaranteed.

    Still bummed as a fan and hoped we'd get more.

    Ryan has his faults but as long as he's here, we'll have a top 10 D every year, minimum.
    The Jets had 0 leverage, because they couldn't franchise him.

    Entirely satisfied.

    Lets review:

    Great player at a position that does not and cannot win titles on it's own (CB) on a team bereft of talent at an assortment of positions.

    A team that is (realisticly) at least two, and probably three to four, seasons (and a new QB) away from serious contention for a title.

    A great player who, the past two years, held out, got hurt, came back, got hurt again and missed almost the entire year.

    A great player whose injury is to something vital in what he is, thus making his future a risk.

    A great player who demanded to be the highest paid player on D in the NFL, paid comprable to a top 10 franchise QB. A player who is famous for holding out.

    A great player at a position we, the Jets, already have another legitimate #1 talent at (Cromartie).

    We, the Jets, cannot afford a 16 million dollar a year CB when we have no talent at QB, RB, WR, OG, TE, LB, Safety and Punter (lol).

    A 16 million dollar a year CB is a luxury. Somethign teams who think they're one Dion Sanders away from a title sperge to aquire for that lasy push before they fall over Cap Casualty Cliff.

    We are not that team.

    Worse, everyone in the NFL knew it.

    With zero leverage of any kind, we aquired a #1 (13) and a likely 3rd round pick to use towards rebuilding the talent pool of this franchise.

    Given the situation, I make this deal without any hesitation or reservation.

    Now....the pressure is on the new GM to make the pick stick. He picks a Ghost, a D-Rob or a Ducasse with that pick. Well, that speaks for itself, doesn't it? And no amount of Revis can save that anyway.

    Well said as usual.

    I think they did good all things considered...and the Bucs were the ONLY team interested in Revis and Idzik got what he wanted in a #1 this draft.

    Hey sg3, John Idzik just pooped into a bowl, ate it, then pooped out the poop, ate it again, and then made sweet love to Tom Brady. How do you dig that?

    seriously?

    take a week to think about this

    If your Hindu or Buddist Kali Yuga is the age in which a truly "materialist" life becomes possible. It is also, and for the same reason, the Age of Quarrels and conflicts. For the "downward" tendency of solidification is also the "outward", or centrifugal, tendency, away from the Spiritual Centre of being and its Unifying Principle. It also means take a week off JI defiler..

    This had to happen. I can't wait until he gets destroyed by the NFC south. The competition in that division destroys the AFC East. And if he stops say White for example, that's great, but the Bucs will still be destroyed by Gonzalez and Jones. It's all about a pass rush. A pass rush can make any corner look good. The Giants are a prime example. $16 million a year for a corner, is not worth it. Especially for a player with two previous hold outs.
