We need Decker and someone better than Decker. Then, we need to sign Holmes for the right price. Holmes as a number three and Kerley as a four sounds about right. Trade Sanchez for a fourth rounder añd move on. He needs a change of scenery and we need depth.

Hey, anyone else notice the Yankees Blog is no longer on the sidebar?

They still exist but have apparently severed there ties with SNY!

I think i'm still sitting on my coach from the Jets Pitt  AFC game Hopefully I can get out of it soon.

So, do the Jets have to come to an injury settlement with Sanchez before they can release him if his Labrum isn't healed?

Mark Sanchez in a small market city away from the crazy media just might shine. To me Mark Sanchez can be a good QB. But the pressure and constant changing from good to worse offensive weapons he had was his dilemma along with a coach talking SB every year he was there. He almost did it to! who knows what would of happen if the Jets defense stops Rothelesberger in The AFC game and Sanchez gets one more shot with 2 minutes left which would of been left on the clock. But a bad play call by the defense killed it and old and slow LB.. they thought he was going to run but he passed and got the First down. So maybe that was Sanchez time. but we will never know. Im still scared by that game but ony the Jets can beat the best two QB in football and lose to a QB with a Broken or bad ankle.  .Im sorry but that was just SOJ type of karma.....

They should leave a Decker Jets jersey in the locker room for him to find, stuffed with hundred dollar bills.

I like everything except the part about keeping Holmes. But it's not going to happen. Also I don't see anyone trading for Sanchez when they know the Jets are going to cut him.

@harvlis 

Damn, did you like abruptly wake up this morning and see this plan in your head?

@harvlis Uh, you want to have three veteran starting-level players, plus Kerley? 


Kerley is better than a four, dude. Come on.

We would most likely have to move up too far to one of the top QBs but if at 18 the top player on your draft board is a QB you have to take him. Teams that draft strictly for need are usually drafting pretty early because they are crap.

I've never been there as I'm not a fan.  Was it active and livefyre helped drive them away, or was it dead and SNY needed a better one?

@a57se  I believe this is the SNY Yankees blog now and would assume they'll add it to the sidebar at some point.  http://nyyfans.com

@jake100 Nice revisionist history. The Mark Sanchez that took us to the 2 AFC Championship games no longer exists. His decline started the night of the Raven game where he was pummeled on one play after another. He was never the same player after that and you can mark  (no pun intended ) that date as the day it all changed for Mark and our team. I don't wish him ill, but his bad decision-making won't stop after he changes uniforms.

Pete Carroll got a raw deal here because we had an idiot for an owner. Happiest day as a Jets fan in the 1990's was the day Leon Hess sold the Jets.

@a57se No, he doesn't have any injury guarantees and the injury happened in the current league year.

@Pat d Holmes is a disappointing number one receiver, due to injuries and poor character but, if they can sign him for a reasonable price, he can be a nice number three.

@Brendan@harvlis I like Kerley but, our offense would be much better, if he was the fourth receiver.  If we picked up one of the better receivers in the draft, along with picking up Decker, and signing Holmes at a discount, my plan works.  What is so outrageous about that?

@djf1 

They didn't use Disqu' when we were but perhaps SNY was insistent on them changing to livefure? Not really sure why they moved.

@Bent@a57se 

Oh. I thought you couldn't cut a guy on IR without an injury settlement.

they sure like to throw money around.

@harvlis@Pat d 

Forget the 3 and 4 designations. Kerley is a slot receiver. He does his best playing from there.

@Pat d Pat, he could be a good three and I would be happy with him there but, if he is our number four, we are dangerous.

I would rather have Kerley at the #3

@a57se@harvlis@Brendan I agree that you do not pay Decker more than he is worth but, he is a quality big target who I would want.  No one is going to steal him.  One of the top receivers in the draft, like a Marqis Lee could be a number one.  I could take a lot of abuse for this but, I would have no problem with a healthy Hakeem Nicks at the right price.  As for Sanchez, plenty of teams need improvement at the QB position or a solid back-up.  Sanchez was able to get to the championship game, in his first two seasons.  His last two seasons, his surrounding cast had disappeared.  In his final year, he had to deal with Tebow and Sparano.  You never know.

@harvlis@Brendan 

I don't think Decker is worth what he will fetch as a Free Agent plus the Jets QB situation is not exactly a Neon sign to these guys. Holmes is fine if he is cheap but you have to cut him first. Kerley is a slot receiver if we have decent WR #1 and WR#2.

Who is the 'someone better than Decker" you want?

Who is going to trade a 4th round pick for Sanchez when they KNOW the Jets are going to cut him????


Other then a few points, you were spot on!

@a57se@djf1 so previously the blogs were free to choose their own commenting providers?

@a57se @Bent Once a guy goes on IR his salary is guaranteed anyway, so if you release him from IR later on, it doesn't make any difference.


This rarely happens because the team has nothing to lose so might as well retain the player's rights, although if the player in question could get an opportunity elsewhere (like Braylon at the end of 2011 when Seattle released him to the Jets) then they can be granted their release.


In Sanchez's case it again makes sense for them to retain his rights just in case someone offers them something for him, but I don't expect this.

Brendan

@a57se @Bent He won't be on IR once the new league year starts, and they're not cutting him before then.

@Marcus Armstrong Im not that big on Decker but if Idzik makes a move for him I wouldnt be upset either.

@a57se I think he was only in his third year when Peyton got there, not too many receivers are worth $10 mil in their second seasons. It takes time, and he looked good early, I believe he scored 9 TDs in his second year with kyle orton/tebow as QB

a57se

@MarshRandy@a57se 

and he wasn't an $8 - $10 million dollar a year WR.

This is not baseball....there are no lines that indicate fair or foul.

I am with Marcus on this.
