Congrats to John Idzik on a successful first draft as the Jets GM. I still remember all of the criticism from the"experts" when the Jets drafted Richardson. Laughable.


Congrats to Sheldon!

Congrats to Sheldon.  Well deserved. You'll really take off this year and establish yourself as a perennial pro-bowler. Hope we have some rookie of the year awards on offense this year. We REALLY need the help!

Wow. Really happy for him, Jets fans, the Jets front office, Rex Ryan and the Jets defense as a whole. I really expected Kiko to win with all those flashy stats, even if Sheldon was clearly the best defensive rookie this season in terms of efficiency and value.

Great pick, media. I guess they're not bad all the time... there's always that 1%.

Congrats to Sheldon Richardson!! Well deserved even though he was a rookie this year there were times he was the best player on the field.


Also I think total tackles of 42 are just his solo tackles.  Combined tackles are 77.

It's funny how this pick was so scrutinized by everyone (including me) and was such a fantastic pick. Looks like BPA is a good strategy.

Hear! Hear!

To Bacon!

And to the guy that invented the bacon bowl on the new infomercial. What's more American than not only serving the fattiest, greasiest foods, but finding a way to serve these foods in vessels that themselves are made out of bacon? I just need a spoon made outta butter to set with now

@harold Thanks for pointing that out! 42 SOLO tackles from a 3-4 DT is amazing. 77 combined is also remarkable.
