The reason Greene was so good in the playoffs was because Jones took the pounding all year, allowing Greene to dominate because of fresh legs. Who know how he'll do carrying the load? I would not have given Jones an extension because he's too old, but I would've paid him the bonus and let him have another year. He ran for 1400 ******* yards last year.
Agree 100%. Think but jettisoning a 1,400 yard back you are potentially putting Sanchez in a bad position next year. He will most likely make strides, but if the running game slips a notch or two then his development may as well.
Since there is a strong possibility Kerry Rhodes gets traded sometime in the near future, how do you guys feel about bringing in Antrell Rolle?
I think it's intriguing because he's a talented safety and then you could have a minimal change in quality of play at the FS spot but pick up something for KR. At the same time, I'm not sure if he has any interest in playing in NY and think that the interest in him may mostly come from the fact that he's an available FS in a relatively limited market for what the Jets can go after right now. So it may be more of a convenience thing than a good fit, and I'm not sure how much sense he makes on a long term deal. But I wouldn't be disappointed if that's what went down, at this point I'm cautious though.
And does anyone have Insider? I'm curious as to why it says we could make a move on Brandon Marshall.
This is what Insider had to say, not much:
"Given the lowered price tag, the Jets have re-emerged as a possibility in the buzz we've heard on Thursday. There's still a need for a legit No. 1 WR, and Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum is not opposed to pulling off big deals."
Well if it was only a third I think that's not a bad deal for a 25 yr old dude, but it says it can turn into a 2nd rounder. Hopefully it takes a lot to make it a 2nd rounder. Regardless though, I do like the deal, since there were only two corners I was really a fan of in this class and I assume they wouldn't be as perfect of fits as the Jets would want.

That trade really takes away the one biggest immediate need on the team, so at this point the position the first round pick is used on seems pretty wide open. Just makes that all the more intriguing at this point. I don't love the trade because he's been pretty soft but the talent level is obviously ridiculous so this could end up working out nicely. Agree with TTGS, hope that second rounder isn't easy to attain.
I don't see how it's a bad deal. I'd be willing to say that there's a 95% change that any CB we drafted in the 3rd round of next years draft would most likely not produce any better than Cro. However, with Cro, we know what type of athletic freak he is and what type of player he is capable of being.
If he can stay healthy, I see no reason why Rex can't get the best out of him. Not to mention he'll see a lot of balls thrown his way playing opposite Revis, hopefully he can get back to his ballhawking days.

I really hope this doesn't turn into a second rounder. Cromartie is not worth that at all. I don't even think he is worth the 3rd. One thing going for Cro right now is the fact that he will never have to lineup against a #1 WR.
I think the deal is good because even a second rounder for Cromartie at 70-80% isn't bad considering how dominant he has shown he can be. I wasn't familiar enough with the Chargers D to know that Cromartie wanted more man coverage while the Chargers D wasn't too accommodating. Perhaps with Rex and playing in man coverage, Cromartie can perform more up to his ability. I'm still worried aobut his off field stuff and the fact that a team would trade away a 25 year old with his kind of athleticism for a second rounder. Now that it has happened i'll just hope for the best and I like it a little more than I did when it was just rumors.
