I enjoy your posting abilities.
I also take issue with the above highlighted. While in theory, i agree LT was a great safety valve for Sanchez, if losing your safety valve(whom wasnt a WR) results in the play we saw last year from Mark, there are bigger issues without doubt than a dump off 33 y/o LT.
It should have affected his play sure, but cmon, linking Mark and LT together as a recipe for success is borderline absurd.
In 32 games in '11 and '12 Shonn Greene had 49 receptions for 362 yards and 9 first downs.
For an offense admittedly challenged at WR, TE, QB, and RB, not having a backfield receiving threat was a huge blow.
Traded up what, with whom, to get which playmaking WR? I assume you mean the youngster from WVU. Who do you trade with, what did you offer, to get him?
Which TE do you mean in the 2nd round?
Once answer, your decisions add new questions:
1. Who are your four Conerbacks in 2013 if you do not select Milliner?
2. Who is your starting DT's given the loss of Pouha/Devito in 2013, and not selecting Richardson.
3. You've said repeatedly that Sanchez cannot win without a dominant Defense and a dominant running game. How does selecting a short speed WR who cannot block and a pass-catching TE help create the ideal SAR-defined Sanchez winning situation, as you see it?
4. How do you see the kid from WVU as different than Holmes, specificly? Both are shorter, speedier recievers. How do you see the rookie WR, given your previosu comment regarding misplaced hope in rookie production, being a superior option to Holmes, assuming healthy.
I agree re: Holmes, but once done, it's done. Spilled milk and all that at this point, we are tied to him financially.We signed Holmes who is on the back side and is coming off a major injury. Hill is as advertised- Mr. Dropsy. Keller is gone. After that is a bag of pucks. That's no way to enter the 2013 season. Our passing game is worse than last year, unacceptable.
Hill was a rookie, I'd suggest writing him off forever now is a bit premature.
Keller was hurt almost all year last year, hence his loss does not change 2012 vs. 2013.
Kerley is far from a "bag of pucks", he's a well regarded and taleented slot reciever.
We still have 4 months to see who or what might shake loose, or who or what may develop out fo teh young kids on our roster.

In 2011 WITH LT THE MAGIC SAFETY VALVE on the field for every game SAR's boy Mark Buttfumble was responsible for 26 turnovers same as in 2012.
Time to come up with a new line of shtick to defend the indefensibly awful Suckchez
In your scenario which QB is throwing to your shiny new TE and WR's? What happens when MS chokes? What happens when Garrard gets hurt? And how is the team better off?
I think the Jets as is will surprise on the upside in 2013. I think Idzig knows best till proven otherwise.
This is a waste year. Anybody with a brain sees that. It still doesn't make the retention of Rex any less perplexing unless Woody is as awful as I think he is and he thinks Rex is going to be his Chuck Noll.
Not tooting my horn, but i was also saying how the LT loss was going to be a big loss for Mark, i even created a thread last year about this time regarding the lack of RB pass catchers, and it was one of the few times i would consider myself "attacked".
that aside, you and i differ on Mark Sanchez and possibly the QB position as a whole....I still want to stress my point;a true Franchise QB wouldnt let the loss of a past his prime LT cave his career in. The great ones plug in and move on.
and yes, it does have to do with the talent level. I would never say Mark needs to work miracles with HS players, but there is something to be said for his ability to do ANYTHING on his own.
When you consider that Revis, Keller, Holmes, and Pouha were out or subpar all year we've actually improved over 2012, except for safety. We still have a bit of cap room to improve there with a camp castoff so all in all I think 2013 team is stronger than 2012 team. BTW Marty M is a huge upgrade at OC.
(ps: I like Rex)
I agree with accumulating draft picks and getting younger if that's the plan. We just need to do it smartly. The first three picks in the draft were baffling. Cromartie is a solid CB1. CB2 was not as important as WR1 or TE1. We have enough DE's to start an all-DE team. The QB should be the pick next season when there are blue-chippers available.
We kept the HC we should have dumped.
We lost 13 starters and our entire coaching staff.
We didn't get enough value for the CB we traded.
We let our old scouting department run the draft.
We took a CB when we had bigger priorities.
We took a DE we didn't need.
We didn't get the WR that we desperately needed.
We ignored skill positions that could provide big impact.
We took a QB that blocks us from taking a good one next season.
Yeah, so far so good, very exciting, things are looking up.
