yea, the jets are fine and the pats are in trouble.....LMAO!! you guys are hilarious.
I don't think anyone is saying that at all. Many teams have a cap puzzle to work out. If I recall, the Jets have been in this salary cap hell for at least 5 years and it hasn't stopped them from being players in free agency. One can debate the production/value of those players they have signed, just as one could debate the ones we have signed. Going into 2009 the Jets were reported to be 20 million over the cap after cutting Pennington the year before and trading for Favre. They had a rookie QB, a rookie HC and had drafted a top 10 bust in Vernon Gholston and replaced 10 or 11 starters. The next two years they won a bunch of games and some playoff games.
Cap hell does not really exist. It can impinge things for a year or so, but teams frequently get over it very quickly. The problems comes from poor player evaluation. Holmes had a good year with them and then they gave him 10 mil a year and he's been pretty average. Scott and Pace were worth their salaries in 2009-10, but have dropped off quite dramatically and are now not worth their bloated contracts.
In our case, we have some money to spend, but if we want to just maintain our skill players like Talib & Welker that money is gone. We are not going to be the same offense if we refuse to pay Welker and our D will be like it has been the last 3 years without Talib. You can't just replace a 100+ catch WR with a guy like Edelman or some other scrub off the street.
The Jets have likely written of 2013. They will replace guys like Scott, Pace, Moore, Eric Smith and Greene with low priced alternatives. Those players were such non factors in 2012, I'm not sure that will make a bit of a difference in their production. Their true problems in 2012 were offensive turnovers. No matter who they replace those players with, the results will be the same if they continue to turn the ball over so often.
Well put and like many, I'm not a Jet's fan, but only a fool would be blind to see that their real problems are their quarterback. Some players they bring in work, some don't, but their real demise is and will continue to be Sanchez. And our saving glory is Tom Brady - until that changes we should continue to beat them and every other team in our division. The part I don't like is that the jets have spent like they were the one's that had the hall of fame QB who's window was closing...not us...I think we would of won another Super Bowl if we had. When the jets spent like that it was a waste - you can't win with Sanchez, but with Brady we could of turned this team into a more physical Super Bowl contender.
Look, Sanchez stinks. No one argues that. But the contract he was signed to came after 2 AFC championship games, and. Season in which he had 32 TD's. The Jets extended him, saving money on the cap, and locking him up for $8.5 million a year. Theoreticly it was a good move. Granted, it did not work out.
The one thing I disagree with is that there is a salary cap hell. I do believe the Raiders, Cowboys and Redskins are in the midst of it. I do not think the Jets are. The Jets are very easily ale to get under the cap, and sign big ticket players or mid tier to build the middle.
I am not even a Jets fan, nor a Jets troll. I simply like pointing out how wrong Rusty is.
Show us where Sanchez had 32 TDs in a season. This should be HIGHlarious to see you source that. Absolutely priceless. Sanchez can't even put up a 2:!1 TD/INT ratio for crying out loud, but he threw 32 TDs passes before? LOL
Also, you went to Harvard and can't spell theoretically correctly? Oh my. Why is it that we keep seeing you lie continuosly and passing it off as fact? Seems like you have a little bit of a pathologcial liar disorder going on.
The Raiders, Cowboys and Skins, exclusively, are in "cap hell", but not the Jets? Explain how the Jets are different as compared to the Cowboys, Skins or Raiders. All you're doing is listing crappier run organizations with you hoping people won't challenge you on why you listed this organizations. The Jets are actually in FAR worse shape because those teams actually have better QBs, as good or better defenses, have had better drafts recently, and aren't looking to replace 9 starters overnight.
The fact is, the Raiders, Cowboys and Skins are in MUCH better position to win now vs the Jets. The Raiders at least have a better QB, coach and GM because they made those moves further in advance than the Jets have.
They also don't have 30 million tied up in to two overrated CBs. Even the freaking Raiders have a better salary allocation approach than the Jets. As a Jets fan, how does that feel RKarp?
You're not a Jets fan? You sure about that? You seem to have an unhealthy enjoyment of praising their organization for a non-Jets fan who isn't from NY/NJ, wouldn't you say?
Are you always a moron or only on BDC? In 2011 Sanchez had 26 throwing touchdowns and 6 rushing touchdowns. You dont have to graduate from Harvard to know 26 plus 6 equals 32.
I posted on each AFC team not only the hated Jets. I simply found perception far from reality regarding the Jets cap situation.
See you in 5 weeks right? Jets 20-30 million under cap, Pats unable to reneg Brady or Mankins, so they cut Lloyd and maybe Ghost.
5 weeks we come back, right?
So now we're counting "rushing TDs" when discussing QBs in a passing league? Gee, that's funny no other NFL fan counts how many TDs a QB rushes for but you.
Isn't that interesting.
Why would I wait 5 weeks? We'll all just keep laughing at you this week, next week and MANY weeks in the future.
Only you on this planet think the Jets new GM can clip 45 million dollars in 5 weeks.
I mean I've seen some really stupid people before, but you're easily at the top of the list.
5 weeks Sally, is when bonuses get paid, so cuts will happen.
