    A well known axiom in sports is that guys in their contract years usually go bezerk, so since we have so many players in their contract years do you all think this will result in big numbers, big games and big wins for us???

    Chad Pennington
    Sean Ellis
    John Abraham
    Anthony Becht
    Lamont Jordan
    Matt Walters

    this is the list i have obviously may be different if some extensions are signed before the year starts

    did I miss anyone else??

    I think the good thing about having a BUNCH of guys in contract years is that yeah, we should get the typical "Contract" type year from a few guys (I think Chad will be good either way), but it will also help the team make decisions regarding several players at positions where there may be a bunch of guys competing, and make it easier for the Jets to decide who to keep, and who they want to just let walk (Becht?, Walters?), trade (Lamont?), or franchise (Abe? Ellis?).

    Then again, no mater HOW the Contract year guys perform, its going to be hard cap wise for the Jets to sign all these guys, anyway.

    I get the Feeling, though, that ABe, Ellis and Becht are going to go OFF ths year...just a thought.

    Chad will be signed no matter what, Jordan should get traded, even if for a third (I think they maybe should have made the Raider deal)...if the Jets get nothing in return for a 2nd rounder, it will have been a totally wasted pick.

    The Trevor Johnson pick makes Matt Walters position a bit unstable....they are the same player.

    so is it fair to say taht your recomendation would be to sign Chad and let the others play it out and see who is worthy to resign???

    a little risky if they really do go off and put up huge numbers, being that their price tags will go up, but then again at this point right here who do you resign out of the 2 ends?? and how will it effect the other end??

    Chad Pennington-[b]Unable to reach a contract agreement. Signs with Titans and leads them to a Super Bowl victory in 2006.[/b]

    Sean Ellis-[b]Unable to reach contract agreement. Signs with Buffalo and leads the NFL in sacks.[/b]

    John Abraham- [b]Resigns with Jets for 7 years-$52 millon. On-field performance declines swiftly. Jets eat contract and take cap hit by releasing him after 2006.[/b]

    Anthony Becht- [b]Resigns with Jets for 5 years at $30 million. Versus the Pats in the AFC Championship game in 2005, a 4th down, 10-yard pass clanks off his hands in the end zone as time expires and the Jets lose 21-17. Everyone now forgets Jackie Smith. [/b]

    Lamont Jordan-[b]Unable to reach contract agreement. Signs with the Raiders and leads the NFL in rushing 6 consectutive years. Up on the podium as he accepts his 6 straight MVP award, he good friend and confidant, savage69, proclaims "I told you so".[/b]

    Not possible.


    How can the Pats and Jets play in the AFC title game when the Titans have already won it, and the Superbowl?? :lol:

    I too believe Becht will go off this year. Instead of his usual 2 or 3 drops per game, he will only have 1 drop per game. Although the 1 drop will be the one that lose the game for us, he will indeed "go off".

    If Penny has a solid year like 2002, his $$$$ numbers will go way up. He still doesn't have a full year starting and playing at a high level.

    Jets should try to lock him in to a long contract before the season starts. Remember too that he has the same agent as P Manning ($94 mil??). His contract may make it impossible to sign Abe and Ellis, let alone McKensie, Becht and Jordan . . .

    If Bradway starts next years&#39; signings this year, like he did with Martin and Chrebet two years ago, it&#39;s possible he could take advantage of the cap space vacated by Jamie Henderson, should he sit out the year on injured reserve.

    That 1.5 million could ease the path to signing those guys once he knows.

    im very serious when i say the key TO ALL THE SIGNINGS will be if chad gets signed BEFORE the year starts.

    if they can sign him between now and sept - expect to see most of those names still in green and white for some time to come

    if they wait for him to play out this yr - expect maybe one or two of those guys to get re-signed

    they wait on chad and his numbers will b through the roof - SIGN HIM NOW&#33;

    I say this in all seriousness.

    Chad will play the same (and very well I might add) whether he is in the last year of his contract or has signed a 20 year, &#036;250 million contract.

    He doesn&#39;t impress me as the type of person that (i) slacks off if he&#39;s got a big deal or(ii) needs to step up his effort to increase his value in a walk year.

    JMHO.

    Actually shuler, Jets probably have a better chance with Bollinger and Ray than they do with Pennington. :lol:

    Just messing around. When does the damn season start? :blink:
