In response to rkarp's comment:
I didnt say they were ready now. I didnt say they were good now. I said they are interesting, and need a handful of pieces still, with over $30 mil in cap available next year....I said they could be a good team in 2 years time....
I thought Richardson and Wilkerson played well last night. I like Cro and Miliner. If they do get a top 5 pick and can trade down to 2 #1's...and use the cap space wisely...this will be interesting in a couple of years
You, no one has any idea how much cap space anyone will have next year. They have an immature QB who will be a bust. I also bludgeoned you with ease in our cap bet, which everyone saw. So, you will not be lecturing ANYONE on any cap issues here, please.
please, until you understand cap space, dont comment. you are out of your league. most every comment you have made, has shown your naievite. your back pedal on every cap conversation has been embarassing for you, and most posters have called you out on this
Coming out on the road leading your team out doing that goofy jet flying thing showed massive immaturity and arrogance from Smith. Do not underestimate an arrogant, low character QB who thinks he's made it because their other crap QB got hurt in preseason.
Do you think any legit QB would go out like that for their first road game?
I don't care how much cap space they will have. No FAs will want to go there with Woody Johnson being a moron.
You don't seem to get it.
yes I do. As long as the money is green, there is always a market
Milliner does not look like a top pick. Blew multiple coverages. If there weren't so many drops, the Jets would have been slaughtered in the game.
you are entitled to your opinion, but so am I...the kid was the top ranked CB for a reason...he looks legit to me
Outside of Wilkerson and Richardson being to take out our run, which they helped do, name one notable play they made.
I thought they stuffed the run. I thought their CB's covered very well. (the S play was not good). the LB's held the edge and tackled well. they pressured TB 7 times. again, I am not saying they are a winning team, I am saying they have some intersting pieces
Name one. You can't name ANY.
Cromartie is not a good player in run support and gets abused by shiftier WRs, but yes, a good player against the rangier kind of WR. WHo cares?
Rex doesnt want a run support CB (BB does)...Rex wants a guy he can play all over the field one on one, who can create TO's. 90% of the time, that is Cro...he is not Revis, but who is? Cro was a pro bowler last year.
I'll take Talib over Cromartie anyday. Not really close, IMO. At least Talib tackles.
Look, these are my observations afte watching the game live, and then again on tape. It was 1 game. I think they could be interesting in 2-3 years if Idzek is as smart as people claim. this years goal, clear cap space in a major way, get some building pieces, teach the young guys to be competitive. from what I see, mission accomplished. sorry you are offended that the Jets have some building blocks...but they are your team, I am simply commenting on them since the PAts played them less than 24 hours ago...the difference is, now I will walk away, but you will comment on the Jets every week
