Unbelievable! The Jets spent 5th most in the NFL on the WR position, double what the Colts, 49'ers and Bengals spent and 60% more than the Pats.  Even with a lower contract, does anyone still think Holmes is worth keeping when his productivity is compared to that of the WR staffs on the other (lower paid) 27 teams? Cut guys like this and draft or sign promising young talent. You won't notice any negatives and might see a huge increase in bang for the buck. - I have new respect for the size of the job ahead of Idzik.

You have to at least investigate what Byrd is looking for and you know Rex wants Idzik to. Maybe the guy just didn't want to play in Buffalo... Does anyone?

Does "Minnesota" mean where underachieving QBs go to die?  Cassell, Freeman, Ponder, and Sanchez...quite a Murderer's Row.

I reckon Brick is going to be better at blogging than I am at blindside pass protection.

Sounds like he is preparing for post NFL life......good to get a head start on it.

@jake100 Ugh.  Why change the game that much?  If they instead made it a choice between 7 points or 6 points + 2 point conversion attempt, it wouldn't change the game but would eliminate the boring PATs.

@Bent @frustjetfnAccording to  the DeSean Jackson article above, the table indicates the 2014 Cap Space allocated by each team. I took this as a snapshot of today or current status if nothing is changed. The point being that given the overwhelming consensus that the Jets WR corps is among the weakest in the NFL, it's even more out of whack with performance and underscores the job that Idzik faces.

@Bent @frustjetfn 

The team with the most bang for the buck is Cinn.....then again, once their guys finish their rookie deals they;l be one of the highest.

Draft a lot of WR's and forget FA's.....

@Bent @SackDance99Favre was the pact with the devil that brought forth the wrath of the football gods....


It would be like the Jets signing Eli (sorry, I just threw up in my mouth).

That boring PAT has changed several important games over the years.......the NFL should stop trying to fix something that isn't broken.

Well, yeah, but in about a week Holmes will be gone and then the Jets would drop right down near the bottom again.  2013 gives a much more realistic position because that's what actually counted against the cap and was paid.

I like Bent teaches (EDIT: That is AMERICAN FOOTBALL) football much better though some folks don't seem to listen to him.

@SackDance99 @Bent  Last time Eli threw up in his mouth it was intercepted by his nose.

The Vikings moving INDOORS brought the WRATH of the gods....why do you think Minnesota hasn't been to the SB since then.

Vikings are not WUSSIES. They DON'T need to PLAY inside when it is COLD OUT. I am surprised the Vikings of the world haven't sued the Minnesota franchise to force them to change their name as it is an insult to any TRUE VIKING!

@Disgruntled Jets Fan @a57se @jake100  What about that game when the Saints were down seven and threw multiple laterals to get the ball upfield and into the endzone "Music City Miracle" style...and then John Carney missed the PAT?
