The Jets Just Made a Mistake

Just a word if you will allow me.

 

The Jets just traded into the 3rd spot of the first round. I feel grim about that just like everyone because it makes it look like we might get shut out from having our choice.

 

I think the only person truly happy about it is AJ McCarron, who is probably still dancing as I speak.

 

But it was a mistake. This was never going to be easy and it is more like a gunfight than anything else. Somebody is going to live and somebody is going to die.

Beane will keep his cool, because Beane will know that the Jets just locked themselves in to taking whoever is left at 3.

 

So the Jets have played their cards too soon which leaves  Beane with a small advantage. Beane still has the option to trade up if the guy he wants is there at 2. 

 

The Jets just made it so we can get ahead of them. We don't have to worry about them any more if you look at it that way.

 

You get 15 minutes I think it is in round one to wheel and deal. If the Bills see somebody they want bad enough they can probably trade ahead of the Jets and get who they want. While the Jets are pretty much locked in.

 

The whole thing is dicey but we just got a small advantage here.

 

I don't believe they will, but if the Browns take Barkey #1, this Jets move could result in the Buffalo Bills getting first pick of all the quarterbacks. They can get whoever they want.

This is exactly my take on the situation as well. That first pick by Cleveland is what will determine if Beane even try’s to move up to 2 or not. They  probably have already had discussions since they know each other well! A J shouldn’t dance just yet.

No mistake at all ... Jets will get Mayfield @ #3. Darnold to CLE, Rosen to NYG and then Mayfield. Allen to the Broncos @ 5 and the Bills will take Jackson. 

Rosen wants to go to the Giants.

If they end up with Jackson they should have just kept Tyrod, same QB.

Run Jackson Run

 

I hope they pass on the running QB and draft a pocket passer in Rudolph

Boy i don't think it is a mistake, though I did at first....now they can just say to the Giants....if anyone calls you to get #2, call us, we'll give you something decent to move back only one spot AND guarantee they won't take whomever the Giants want.

 

Basically the Jets can rooster block us very easily from #3. Sure they have to give up even more but if they think anyone might leapfrog them to their guy, why wouldn't they?

 

(If Giants go QB I'm all wrong but I am banking on them taking Saquon in this scenario)

....we're good Jeff...ALWAYS held you in THE highest esteem......good guy...good poster.....and with a wealth of football knowledge...:thumbsup:

 

Thanks bud. I still do feel the same way about the QB position though. We need one. I am fearful we will be on the outside looking in at the end of April. The guys I really like, in order, are Mayfield, Rosen and Darnold. I’m not a sold on much else and I was sure Beane would be picking in the top 3.We still may but I now have my doubts.

 

I was on the QB in ‘18 train as soon as they made the deal at last years draft.

Good point. It wouldn’t even become a bidding war unless Beane gives up a boatload of picks. That’s all that might entice the Giants to give up that spot. Our only shot it seems is if the Browns take Saquon #1. Removing who imo the Giants really want.

I'm sure the Jets completely disagree with you and are fine with being third and would be completely fine with having any of those three. Why else would they have made the trade?

 

Because it was the only move they had left - they have to say well we like all 3 and now we will get one for sure, but I still think the safest play is day of the draft for the Giants pick - I think they want Barkley - I don’t think they want a QB - new HC and GM with a veteran QB - they want to make a run.

 

I think the Jets know/feel they are getting the 2nd QB off the board.  If Cleveland goes QB - Giants probably go Barkley without a trade and NYJs get number 2 QB.

 

The Only issue is if 2 QBs go - then they just gave up a bunch for the 3rd best QB and that is a much lower chance of working out.

 

I commend them for moving, but without the draft playing out yet - it was to early to risk it with the roster they have and the coaching staff on life support.

...my passion for the position is the same my good friend....OBD has woefully effed it up since Kelly with TE spot a close second,,,,,at te hsame time, the draft was, is and forever will remain a crapshhot...I'm thnking McBeane know his targets(s) and moves to the next one at 12 if the first intended is gone....

The kicker is the fact that I want to see Mayfield, Rosen, or Darnold in a Bills uni. Anything less is simply a disappointment. Allen or Jackson would feel more like the OBD you mentioned.

I'm telling you right now, anyone who thinks yesterday was lip service from Beane...

 

I think Beane saw an opportunity to shed salary and move up in the draft with Glenn.

 

There is a very strong possibility that move didn't entail him automatically moving up as was assumed.

 

Now the Jets moving up means the Giants can literally ask for anything and I sincerely doubt Beane gives up the cost.

To me that will depend on Beans conviction of Josh Rosen.....if he truly feels that he is a franchise guy he will pay the price

The Jets gave up a good amount to trade up to pick 3 but in the context of trading up for a QB they didn't give up much. The pick they got from Seattle was found money from the Richardson trade, their 2nd round (a high second rounder) and next years 2nd rounder is a steep cost but one you are more than willing to pay if it means landing your franchise QB. Compare that to the RGIII and Goff trades and it is a bargain.

Right. Fans want a top pick so they believe it's Beane's plan to get one.  

 

Beane is just dealing when sees an opportunity.  When the Colts called and asked if he would outbid the offer they had, Beane rightly said no.  He Wil

 Wait and see what opportunities come to him that make sense.

My only issue is, you don't trade back last year and pass on Watson/Mahomes, trade starters for picks, trade Tyrod, move up to 12 while trading a good tackle all not to get a true blue chip spec.

This is true, but I want someone who wants to play here. Rosen is giving shoutouts to the Giants, not the Bills. Mayfield is a big city Jets type personality (Broadway Baker) and Darnold has already stated he would love to lead the Browns. That leaves Allen and I see him with the Broncos backing up Case for a few years. 

Really!?

Right, their backs are to the wall now. They have to get something done for a top QB. There is no way that they can’t do so without looking like idiots imo. You don’t trade away a garage full of cars for two Dodge Neons. That’s basically what they’d be doing.

Maybe this is the Guinness talking but I've been thinking and I seriously think that the Jets needed to leapfrog someone at 4. I wonder if they've learned that we were looking to move there. 

I didn't think of that but it makes sense.

Realistically, I think you have to hang the blame for that on McDermott.  I'd say that he wasn't prepared to trust anyone elses judgement on a QB, when he probably knew there was a new GM on the horizon, and that it probably would be someone he would trust (i.e. Beane).

 

Now, they might still roll the dice if they can find a partner, but it would seem, for the moment at least, that the Jest have got, and made, the jump on them.

 

One thing I would say, is that unlike player contracts, just because one team has overpaid (imho) to move up, doesn't automatically mean other teams will have to pay the same sort of premium. Maybe if there's a bidding war, but not necessarily otherwise.

Meh. I am starting to think McCarron may be their guy. No way they can get to two without both firsts this year, a second this year, and next year's first. If McCarron was a franchise guy, someone would have tried him away from Cincinnati. Same mistake Rex made with Taylor.

Agreed ... that's potentially 4 starters for a "franchise QB".  I'd forget about moving up and fill the holes on the roster starting with #12. And I just can't see the Giants parting with #2 given Manning's age.

Yeah I just had a somewhat similar thought -

 

What if the Jets did all of this - gave up the #6 overall pick PLUS 3 more top 50 picks -for the 3rd best QB in this draft class (Mayfleid/Allen etc)?

 

The only thing they did with this move is guarantee that they get the 3rd QB off the board (with a possibility at the 2nd QB off the board). 

 

Is anyone totally convinced that the 3rd best QB in this draft is worth 4 top 50 picks?

 

I sure am not. 

 

What if the Bills sold the farm to get to #3, only to be left with both our top 2 QBs off the board at 1 and 2?

 

I am far from convinced that QB #3 in this draft is worth everything it would have taken for us to get to the 3rd overall pick (figure at least 2800 draft points, if not more since we were at 12, not 6 and the Colts still get a blue chip guy at 6). 

 

#2 or bust!
