    Yeah, drafting positions we have a thousand of. Brilliant deduction. Dude can't even suit in OTA's. Jets having had a pass rush (remember that) in a decade. So what do they do draft another slug for the same exact position.

    I refuse to believe this is real. Has to be trolling. If I just admit you got me good, will that suffice?

    Yes, this is a good thing, but let's not forget that it flies in the face of past Jets processes.

    But coming on the heels of another deviation from the SOJ playbook on the firing of Macc when they did, this might well be the new operating procedure. In any case, this is great news, and I believe they finally have the right guy in place.

    I was talking about the part where you said our 3rd round selections would not have even been drafted

    With a six year contract there should be no question of him being "Gase's yes man." He obviously holds the power now, with in all likelihood at least a three or four year leash.

    If that happens we'll go to SB, tix on me.

    Analytics are a good tool, but they're just one tool. Anyone who relies on statistics and numbers more than they're experience and instincts is not going to be successful. Douglas has been around a long time, and more importantly around winners for most of it. I trust he knows what to look for much more than I trust someone like Macc who didn't have a clue what makes a good player.

    One of the very times I agree with you RB, but there it is!

    I hate to break this to you but almost every GM in the league would have taken Williams at 3.

    Mac, despite screwing up his 1st FA and every draft lasted 4 years. If Douglas is remotely competent he'll last the entire 6 years and will likely get an extension after year 5 if he hits on at least 2 2nd rounders, 2 3rd rounders and a 4th rounder in draft.

    The question is who do they bring in as the cap specialist? They need someone who will stay in his lane and understand his role. Drafting players is important but fiscal responsibility and flexibility is equally as important, especially if some FA signings don't work out and they need to cut bait.

    You're right, and an analytics guy should know not to put analytics above all else. That would be like a scouting guy drafting 100% based on his big board, irrespective of team needs, positional value, or scheme fit. Not that a scouting guy would ever do something dumb like that...

    Hopefully, it wasn't a matter that he didn't want to be here, but rather than Chris Johnson was low-balling him on the offer, and Douglas just held out until he got what he wanted and thought he deserved.

    I wonder how much of a part Gase played in that aggressive and persistent approach?

    Save your breath. I think he is ignoring the facts.

    I think he will find ways to make changes. For instance, as of right now, the Jets will have 36 FAs next offseason. Not all of those players will probably make the roster this year, but among those FAs who will be on the roster this year are: Kelvin Beacham, Leonard Williams, Robby Anderson, Brian Poole, Jordan Jenkins, Brandon Shell, Lachlan Edwards, Thomas Hennessy, and Chandler Catanzaro. That's 6 starters, our LS, and our two kickers. In addition, key backups like Steve McLendon, Trevor Siemian, Rontez Miles, Brandon Copeland, Neville Hewitt, and Ty Montgomery will be FAs. At the TE position, Neal Sterling, Eric Tomlinson, and Daniel Brown will all be FAs. Granted not all three will make the roster, but the one or two behind Herndon and Wesco will be FAs. Others of note who will be FAs are backup OL Tom Compton and Brent Qvale. So that's around one-third of the roster that he will have to make decisions on and re-sign or replace.

    I disagree. We will have money to spend on FAs next offseason, and he will have all 7 draft picks. About 1/3 of the roster will be FAs, including 6 starters, our LS and both kickers, 6 key backups, as well as potentially 4 other backups.

    If this is even close to accurate the guy is a hell of a negotiator.

    (Or whoever worked the Jets side of the deal is a schmuck.)
