    No he is avg 3.5 yds in Cleveland. Our running game was moving the ball in NE. Ivory, Powell, Bohanon are serviceable runners in the WCO.

    No. Too many needs elsewhere.

  3. #23
    Thats a powerful perscription

    And based on talent alone I would love to have TRich on this team but hes doesn't fit the scheme.

    Yes we are rebuilding too and first rounders (as we all know) have incredible value, but is the prospect of needing a QB in a QB heavy first round too big to consider getting a top RB who is 23, can catch, and not having to pay his signing bonus for a first when we have a second and 2 3rds?
    If we had Andrew Luck, yes. With our team as presently constituted, no.

    It might be a good move for the Colts, but its not a good move for the Jets. Keep the picks and build through the draft.
    Plus Jimmy Graham never sees free agency.

    Im not going anywhere. Build through the draft sounds nice.But when it comes to specifics you clam up. TRich was not on the block until Indy made the call.

    Absolutely not. Love this trade for Cleveland. Drafting RBs in round 1 is dumb, IMO. Stockpiling picks to go after a potential franchise QB in Bridgewater is smart. If we have a top 10 pick like I think we will, how moronic would we look if we gave it up for a RB.

    Not the right trade for us at this time.

    For so many reasons, no. The 2 biggest:

    1. Trent Richardson has not played well enough. He's not done enough at the NFL level. He's going to be a cheap ($5m/year) for the next 2 seasons only. The greatest value of rookies now is that they are cheap against the salary cap for their first 3 seasons.

    2. Colts made the playoffs last season, likely to again (they only have 1 good team in their division), likely to pick in their 20s, Jets have a significant risk of having top 10 pick

    For a first? NO.

    Indy screwed up.

    I love it when people have to pick a loser in every trade. This trade made perfect sense for both teams.

    Why? While it would be foolish for the jets to make the trade, it makes perfect sense for the Colts. The Colts already have a franchise QB and made the playoffs last year. If they are going to take the next step they need another dynamic player on offense and T-rich is that player. If the Colts go 11-5, the draft pick will be in the late 20s. What makes you think the player they can get in the mid 20s is going to be as productive as Richardson? Plus, even if that theoretical player turned out to be good he can't help them win this year.

    While trading away picks can occasionally backfire, lets not act like trading away picks for players is always a bad idea. Especially when you are getting back a stud 2nd year player. If they had made this trade for Ray Rice I wouldn't like it as much because they would only get another year or so out of the player but Trich can be productive for a long time.

    No. Not worth us giving away a top 10 pick.

    No, why would anyone give a 1st for an average back that can't pass protect? He's like a younger version on Shonne Greene

    They lost to the Fish, and should have lost to the Raiders. They're not playing a last place schedule this year, and they have a horrible Oline, and a lousy defense. Now they just traded away their 1st for a plodding back that can't pass protect. Luck is going to get killed back there. If they traded for a couple linemen they may have made the playoffs. Now they'll be lucky to win 6 games.
