    Funny if you think about it....

    The Jets went into the 2014 NFL Draft / FA with two glaring positions of need:

    CB & WR

    It's now final cuts and the only change in those positions since the draft is we cut Stephen Hill and Patterson. And Jalen Saunders made the team. (Possibly Enuwa but I doubt it)

    The only change since FA is we signed Decker. Pretty tough luck if you think about it.

    Still better at WR than last year and probably not any worse at CB.

    I agree. That's the funny part. We added one WR and nobody is complaining yet during draft season it was like they couldn't field a team without taking a top CB /WR.

    I'm not sure I would call it tough luck.

    Tough luck b/c Evans, McDougle, Patterson & Ford are all a lost cause for this year.

    We needed more than one; Decker only replaced Tone's role on the team. We had issues at this position beyond Tone.

    If all those guys were healthy and on the roster, I'd still be very concerned about the WR and CB positions.

    I wonder if CJ out of the backfield and Amaro will make up for it receptions wise. Kerley and Nelson are not bad options either.

    B0i think Evans and McDougle could have been big contributors at some point this year.

    He had a total 43 catches in the last 2 years I think CJ2K can do that in 1..

    Think of Jace Amaro as a reciever.

    It's only funny if you don't think about it.
    Doogie, and Evans injured.
    Stephen Hill on the sidelines looking like he's trying to be invisible.
    Vernon Davis re signs with the Colts after agreeing to a deal with us.
    DRC gets a long term deal with the Giants, and doesn't deserve one.
    No other CBs available that fit our system.
    Calvin Pryor is going to mean more to the secondary than any CB available in the draft.
    We'll make do with what we have this year, which is a lot better than last year.
    Next year it will be taken care of one way or the other.
    Meanwhile we'll keep looking for a good fit.

    Nice strides were taken to improve the entire 53 man roster as best as possible for both today & tomorrow ... Not simply selling the farm for 2 positions in the 2014.

    It is actually sensible not funny

    If you want funny then



    Ohh wait ... That was yummy not funny

    Evans drops mores football's than Hill.

    Patterson hasn't shown **** and was hurt all of camp...ford was never a lock to make the team....evans is an unpolished WR prospect....

    team could have gone just a tad heavier in FA....not much but just a touch.

    Only because they were throwing more to him.

    Chris Rock is funny.

    Our GM signing Johnny Patrick and Patterson to solve our CB issue isn't.

    We are fine at WR and will be a running team but that is because we actually signed a good player at the position.

    CB is an unquestioned failure by Idzik and isn't remotely funny

    Bottom line is we drafted 3 WR's that cant play, signed and drafted CBs that cant play. Let the best player we ever had go to NE who just happens to be an all world CB.

    WTF are we doing here?
