    at least it doesn't read:

    pick #33 No Name QB Jets
    Pick #34 Brett Favre Falcons

    That would feel alot worse. By the way how do you think the Falcons feel after trading him away.

    We would not have drafted Favre anyway, our draft track record in the early 90's has to be the wworst in the history of the game. A couple of drafts did not even net us a starter

    Not true, word has it according to espn doc about brett that we were itching to draft him, and had him stolen out from under us.

    Ironic I was thinking about this the other day....

    The Jets get a bad rap and too much heat for this....a lot of teams, specifically the Giants (who took Jared "Bust" Bunch at the end of round one then wasted a supplemental pick 18 mos later on Dave Brown- a choice which turned out to be a top 15 selection the following April) passed on Farve....the Falcons made the biggest mistake.

    You must also remember that Browning Nagle was highly rated at the time. I was at the Marriott Marquis that day and Jet fans were high fiving each other after the pick....no one was saying "sh!t...we should've traded up to get Farve"...the Jets also came away with Mo Lewis a round later.

    Here is the real story....

    The Jets had no #1 pick snce they took Rob MOoore in the supt., draft the ear before. Their first pick was at #34. Brett Favre was the NUMBER ONE player on their entire board. IN fact had Favre not had stomache surgery there is NO way he slides out of rd 1.

    Anyway, as Favre slid, the Jets had a deal with the Cards (who picked #32) to swap woth them because they feared Atl wanted Favre at #33. The deal was all but done but at the last second the Cards killed it because they were afraid Atl would take the guy THEY wanted (DLmen Mike JOnes) at #33. So they renegged on the deal and took Jones at #32, Atl took Fare at #33, and we took browning Nagle at #34.

    To be fair to Nagle, the guy was a red chip prospect and being compared to JIm Kelly and had just TORCHED Alabama (who had the best pasing D in the country that year) for 400+ yards n the LIbverty Bowl. Unfotunately, Coslet killed the kids confidence and he never developed into what htye hoped he would after a terrific first game (366 yards)

    And CBTNY is 100% correct. I was there too and we were all VERY happy about getting Nagle even though we missed ut on Favre.

    So yes, we would have absoutely taken Favre had he been there at #34. WE had a deal in pace to move up to get him but the Cards screwed us, and we landed up wiht Nagle...and the rest is history.

    Farve is a great player no doubt but the real kick to the QB balls was Kenny OBrien over Dan Marino. People are still pissed about that draft pick.

    OBrien was productive and yes he got no pass pro. But cmon Marino is a HOFer, with maybe 35% of his career stats against NYJ! (rough guesstimate or so it seemed)

    the Draft can make the difference between championships and dissapointment. in terms of all time Nyj draft pick bust the Blair Thomas pick was a travesty.

    Ill give the devil his due, the Tom Brady draft pick has become legend. That kid just gets it done and in the 6th round? The QB coach standing on the table story is instant draft lore.

    Yes we would have, Ron Wolf worked for us then and he loved favre and expected him to be there until Atl made a trade at the last minute and swooped him up. Wolf goes to GB, orchestrates trade for favre and the rest is history.

    Passing up Ed Reed to draft Bryan Thomas was worse. At least O'Brien was a decent player.

    I don't know Atlanta made a trade to get Farve....they traded him for a 1st rounder the next year when Wolf was hired in GB

    I also believe this was the year Mike Holmgren was all set to become Jets coach, which also fell apart. Green Bay's big 3- Farve, Holmgren, and Wolf, would have been right here, but alas...

    Not at all....the prior season, 1990, was Coslett's first season as HC and they were not going to fire him........

    but you are correct in that Holmgren was high on Stienberg's list of coach's before he hired Coslett in early 1990....actually, if you remember, Steinberg offered the job to George Perles, then coach of Michigan State, but the school would not let me out of his contract.

    neither of those mistakes compare to missing out on the greatest pure passing QB of all time. When ed reed or warren sapp get to the HOF then we can talk.

    In 95 Sapp had character issues. Jets were not the only ones to pass Fin's passed on him also and tried to make up for it by drafting players with issues afterwards and look what they ended up with. In 01 Thomas was looked on as a project worth undertaking. He has progressed some if he does not show some star power this year he is most defiantly a bust 4 and out.

    Agreed with your take on Thomas just one problem...at the time the Jets had two very good DE's and the position was not a priority....they still need a starting safety today....
