I'm not sure the Jets have the cash, but Anquan Bolden, Jacoby Jones, or Mike Wallace would sure look nice in green. 


The Jets read sure is depressing:      


 Where to begin. The Jets' roster disintegrated under since-fired GM Mike Tannenbaum to the point that it's arguably the worst collection of talent in football.

Highly doubt we have the money for any of the three but Jacoby Jones or Anquan Boldin would be more likely than Mike Wallace...at the moment, Jacoby & Boldin are still under contract with the Ravens next year however

You'd think this team went 2-14 last year with the doom and gloom you hear from the writers.

The idea that this roster is devoid of talent is just silly though.

Yeah it seems like Silva just completely ignored the defense and based his rankings solely on offense for the Jets

Re: Evan Silva's Team Needs & Roster Rankings 


this article sounds about right. i wish the jets could do like i did on my madden 13 franchise. trade or cut 75 percent of the team and keep the key players like revis, cro, landry, d-brick, mangold, hill, harris, davis, kerley, edwards, wilkerson, couples, devito, pioha, wilson and maybe 10-15 more players. the rest of players should be young and they should build from there. if only it was that easy but it aint so our team is stuck with most of the garbage from this year. so this will be another long year and expect about 2-3 years more before we get back on track.

All this is nice until it's known how much cap space they will actually have.

Um...how big do you think an NFL roster is?

You just said trade or cut 75% of the team, and then listed 15 guys as keepers, and said keep another 10-15.

I know. The Jets need to start by getting a few good players at key positions. They should try to get some guys in their prime. Honestly, QB doesn't matter if the line is awful, so they should try to land a couple top guys for the OL, and since LT and C are the two most vital positions, I would say start there. From there, they should make sure they can stop a passing attack, so having a shutdown corner in his prime would be a nice addition. They also need a cornerstone to their linebacking unit. Oh, and they definitely should focus the next few drafts on building up the defensive line. A few first rounders, for example, would go a long way toward helping.

Unfortunately, this team has no talent right now. But if Idzik did those things, the Jets might actually have some hope.

I named about 15 guys I can think of that's worth keeping on the team. There is probably about 10-15 more that can contribute but everyone else should be legitmate free agents or rookies that can build and grow with the players they keep. Now ofcourse I know this isnt possible because its real life and much harder for the team to do this with the salary cap hell their in and contract they probably can't get rid of like mark sanchez. I was just saying it would nice if they could simply do this like I did on my madden 13 franchise team. Its just wishful thinking, that's all.

Don't think his assessment of us is that far off..People keep saying "It's not like we were 2-14" uh we were a real lucky 6-10,we should have lost the Miami game and if not for Arizona stuffing a win down our throats we should have lost that game too. We were worse than our record indicated it's time to stop looking for silver linings and realise what we are. A team with ZERO talent on offense a good defense that depending on wether or not the two safeties that made us a good defense leave could be a bad defense. A roster with no depth,or veteran leadership that HAS been decimated by Mike T the last few years..Let's be realistic we're rebuilding and yes we're that bad..However IF this guy Idzek can get the cap straight and makes all the right personel moves both through cuts,free agency and the draft we can make a quick turn around..But that's alot of "IFs".

RE: Evan Silva's Team Needs & Roster Rankings 


I still think we have more talent than the Jags and we're about on par w/ teams like the Rams, Titans & Cardinals possibly even slightly better than the Titans...probably highest we couldve been ranked is 26th or 27th but Evan Silva goes out of his way to stick it to the Jets every chance he gets so I'm not surprised we're 31st in his rankings even if it's not that off from the truth...D'Brick, Mangold, Mo, Coples, Revis, Cromartie and Landry, Moore, Keller if you're countings FAs...team does have some talent, all the Titans have is McCourty and a washed up Chris Johnson w/ Kenny Britt who can't stay healthy

Yeah exactly and we couldve/shouldve beaten the Titans...we can say that crap about half the games that are played in the NFL...fact is we were 6-10 even if we were "lucky" to be it...with the talent infusion we need though I would exactly consider it lucky for draft purposes lol

Coulda/shoulda goes both ways, like has been mentioned. Saying the Jets could have easily been 4-12 or 2-14 can be countered with the Jets could have easily been 8-8 or 9-7.Like Parcells says, you are what your record says you are.

And the Jets went 6-10 without Revis and Holmes.

That makes 25-30 guys, which is half the roster and above. That's why I don't get the "75 percent" comment you made.

I understand, my numbers probably don't add up but u get my point. The article wasn't far off at all. Our team is in a horrible position period. The players I mention should definitely stay and that's about 15. There is probably less then 10-15 young players that should remain on the roster. I'm just going off the top of head without knowing the full roster. In all, there is probably about 25 guys or less that should stay. The rest need to go and the jets should just cut there losses and rebuild period. Its the only way to rebuild quicker and correctly in my opionion.  It would be nice if this was possible and they could pull it off but its probably not. Id rather deal with them losing 3-4 years more and honestly rebuilding from scratch then retooling a disaster of a roster they currently have. The 6-10 season we had was a mirage. They should lost 3-4 games more, arizona and the phins are two teams I can think of.

Re: Evan Silva's Team Needs & Roster Rankings 


Sack, it's not this team has NO talent whatsoever.  That's not true.  You mentioned a few players who are building blocks - Brick, Mangold, Wilkerson, Coples, Revis, Cromartie.  After that, we are hard pressed to find any playmakers.  Landry was a find, but he'll be gone.  Holmes is good, not great WR.  Keller is probably gone in FA.  And, we have no QB.  Our LBs are all probably gone except for Harris, who has already lost a step or two.  Greene is probably gone, who was average.  Moore might be gone and his game is diminishing too.  Austin Howard did a decent job at RT, so he looks like a keeper.

And most importantly, we don't have a QB.  

There are two unknowns for roster spots - Hill and Davis.  

Other than that, the remaining players on the roster are either role players or second stringers at best.  

So you have essentially 6 or 7 players to build around, when you need 22.  Assuming that Hill and Davis work out, maybe you have 9-10.   That's a lot of holes to fill, especially when you need a QB too.  

At the end of 2011 I posted that the window had closed and this team needed to rebuild completely.  Many on the Board thought that was outrageous at the time, but I could see it coming.  In the preseason it was painfully obvious that this team was lacking talent across the Board on offense, and the defense would be solid, not dominant.  The Jets played worse than the record indicates.  The team looked more like a 4-12 team for most of the season.  In any case, they went 6-10.  

Next year, we should all prepare ourselves for much of the same unless Sanchez completely turns his career around.  Regardless of Sanchez's performance, because there are so many holes on both sides of the ball now it will challenging to win more than 6 games next year.  The Jets could easily go 5-11, or 4-12.  And if we trade Revis or Cromartie, we have yet another hole on the roster to fill.  


The Jets are two or three years away from contending for the playoffs.  It's possible to turn a franchise around in one year, but it would take an incredible draft, coupled with major caps moves and signing free agents that we can't afford to turn this thing around that fast.  Oh yeah, Sanchez needs to turn his career completely around.  Since those scenarios seem unlikely, I'd expect another poor season next year.
