Without reading the TJB headline, I saw the Dolan thing and thought, "OK, someone in the media said something dumb, and The Jet Press is reporting on it. Makes sense. I can picture someone in the media saying that." and continued on with my day. It wasn't until I read the TJB headline until I realized that it was a joke.

How bad is the media that an obvious April Fools joke sounds like "just another offseason Tuesday?"

The Jets will be able to get a good WR in round one. Round two they can get a RB that would be better than getting Chris Johnson. If Carlos Hyde is there in round two I wouldn't 't mind if the Jets picked him.

I just came to terms that getting DeSean Jackson and his baggage is not the best idea. Let Oakland  East(Redskins) sign him. The WRs in this draft are the best in 20 years. It's not the gang stuff, it's the "me" stuff. Now rumor has it Woody is to sell. If James Dolan buys...not sure what will happen? Drove the Knicks into the ground. Prevented the Jets from building in N.Y. Screw him!

@Brian_Bassett not gonna happen... Too much we can do with so many picks. We will build for years down the road.

Anyone have any thoughts on Danieal Manning?  Seems like he could be an upgrade if he returns to form.

I just saw a mock draft that has us picking Carlos hyde at 18!! That has got to be the duimbest pick I've ever seen!

Dane Brugler should be ashamed of nimself.

Oh Good, Mehta reporting the Jets are interested in Jace Amaro....we can cross him off our selection list!

Time to take a look at the current roster a month before the Draft:


WR: Decker, Hill, Kerley, Nelson, Gates, Salas, Campbell, Jones, Hakim

TE: Cumberland, Sudfeld, Pantale, Anderson

OT: Brick, Breno, Aboushi, Ijalana, Ford

OG: Winters, Colon, Schlauderaff, Campbell, Ashworth

OC: Mangold, Freeman

RB: Ivory, Powell, Goodson, Green

FB: Bohanon

QB: Geno, Vick, Simms


DL: Wilk, Hogg, Snacks, Ellis, Dooz, Barnes, Finau

LB: Harris, D. Davis, Coples, Pace, Barnes, Bellore, T. Davis, Cunningham, Fugger

CB: Milliner,  Wilson, Walls, Lankster, Dowling, Rose, Reeves, Patrick, Taylor

S: Landry, Allen, Jarret, Miles, Bush, Hardin


LS: Purdum

P: Quigley

K: Folk


That is 67 players currently on the roster. We will draft 12 as of right now plus we usually sign a few (8 or so) UDFA's so that gets us to ~ 87 players. 90 is the Max until first cutdowns in August.


So who is just camp fodder and who needs to be replaced?

If my sources inside the building are correct, then expect a bombshell at 2pm.

Does anyone want Chris Johnson?  I don't get it. Seems totally average?

Can we get some news saying that we've signed Jones or Patterson already!? Would be nice to see something happening for a change.

You continue to post I assume for your own enjoyment.  It is adding nothing to the blog.

I think he would have been a good signing last year before we signed Landry.  But with what we have at safety now I don't see much of a need.

@Ceifus Hornswoggle

James Dolan buys the Jets and immediately trades all of our draft picks this year, skips next year.  and trades our first rounder in 2016.   He doesn't realize yet in the NFL he can trade next years first rounder.

@WW85 I wouldn't mind him. He would fit in perfectly as the Goodson role. Would make the potential jailbird expendable too. Morningweig needs a McCoy-like rb too. Talk about thunder and lightning via Ivory/Johnson.

Brugler writes for CBS sports....Carlos Hyde is the RB out of Ohio St.

I don't see the comparison, but I guess you feel this a good point.

Many of my points and responses have started long discussions on the blog.

I don't see how this one could other than with you, trying to play DA (devil's advocate).  But please don't push it too far.  Thanks

Mehta has not broken a story or had a really good lead in a while.  He beats the same drum on issues to drive hits for his stories.

Idzik is getting us good value and has upgraded the WR position, ensured we have a solid O-line if Winters can continue to improve and at least be a Slauson level player (when Slauson was a 1st year starter and 2nd year player).

I just don't see where it adds value on a Jets site.

@harold  

Then again, what value comes from posts like:

I went dis way and dat way...oooooooo dats right!.

a57se

@harold  

Well, let's see......from a typical Jets Blog participant, this comment would probably be seen as inflammatory since most view Idzik in a very positive light and most hate Mehta.

For someone who sees the hypocrisy of toasting reporters who don't say what the fans want and don't think the GM has done such a hot job, this would be reinforcing that opinion.

I am sorry, I don't want to be the blog police, and did not tell him to stop.

Just curious where any value comes from this post.
