Oops the Jets Drafted the wrong QB!

I am sorry guys!

I am sorry guys!

Now if you have been paying attention, you’ll realize that in reality, they drafted USC QB Mark Sanchez. I just can’t believe they think he is the future. I feel a Tim Couch/Matt Lienart situation coming on, and to  think they traded up for him makes me sick.  I do think the Jets needed a QB, but my biggest issue with this is what they traded away to get him. Realize that Mark Sanchez is no Tim Tebow, he is not the next carson palmer. He is 1/2 the player that Matt Leinart is, and we all know how Leinarts NFL career is going!

Matt Leinart kisses his mom on the lips? I didnt think he was from the south!

It’s pretty funny, to think, when I was watching NFL Network, and they were interviewing Sanchez about getting picked 5th. It was more than obvious that everyone at the table knew that the Jets had made a mistake in trading up to secure this player. Sanchez brought up his lack of experience, and talked about the fact “if you don’t win at USC, there is a problem”. That’s just funny. I could care less that this guys dad is a firefighter, and the silly story line that Fireman Ed will get a chance to cheer for a firefighters son should not be a topic talked about. NFL network shame on you!

What the Jets should have done, is not trade away their 2nd round draft pick and 3 players for this one unproven guy. They could have  picked up some good player in the second round and still secured a great QB. They could have secured Kansas State’s Stud QB Josh Freeman using their 17th pick without trading if they were really that hard up on drafting a QB this season. They never needed to send away their second-round pick in this year’s draft and three players to secure this QB. The drop off from him to Josh Freeman is nothing at all. I would even argue that Freeman has the potential and experience to be the better NFL QB. The Jets lost Starting DE Keyon Coleman, QB Brett Ratliff and S Abram Elam. If I was Elam I would be upset with Eric Mangini, because he is getting Elam involved in another rape scandal, stealing away three solid players and prospects from the Jets for one un-proven “franchise QB”. Guess what everyone Akila Smith and Ryan Leaf were once considered “Frachise QB’s” on their draft day. Coleman was the Starting DE last season, and Abran Elam has showed lots of promise. Considering what Stafford got paid, Jets fans should realize that Sanchez isn’t going to sign cheap, which won’t help their WR situation as well.  I am not impressed with the Jets draft this year and I won’t be afraid to show it. The Idiots at NFL network are saying it’s a great move, but I am not buying it. Josh Freeman was a 3 year starter and he has a career QB rating of 122.39 with a suspect offensive line. Freeman is 6′6  250 pounds and has more than 16 games experience playing for a program that wins regardless of who is QB’ing. Mark Sanchez was a stupid pick, and I can’t say that enough. He has put up only 1 year of Monster stats and the Jets just traded away  their starting proven D-End. IS ANYONE ELSE PISSED ABOUT THIS??

Raiders pick Darrius Haywood Bey over Crabtree what were you thinking? Al Davis needs someone to tell him to retire!

Raiders pick Darius Haywood-Bey over Crabtree, what were THEY thinking? Al Davis needs someone to tell him to retire!

To be honest when I look at the three QB’s, as I stated before, I think everyone is backwards on this idea of what true Value is. Stafford and Sanchez are without a doubt very talented QB’s but the fact that Freeman is not as highly regarded diminishes both their values in this draft. Regardless of the fact that I think that Sanchez doesn’t warrent the respect he is getting, I still feel that Freeman will be the better NFL QB. Personally, I think Freeman fits the lions much better than the Stafford, yet the Lions couldn’t field any potential trades they felt were worth using, so I understand them picking Stafford. The 17th overall pick, Josh Freeman was a 2.75 year starter and put up over 8,000 yards passing with 44TD’s in his college career and once you start to understand that he has the size and speed of the young uninjured Donte Culpepper, you start to realize that he has real potential, which is what he has shown in his long college career as a starter. What does Sanchez have? 16 games as a Starter, and 1 season of good numbers, for a program that just doesn’t lose. Sanchez is only 6′1 and 216 pounds. He will need the Jets to create passing lanes on certain plays and Jets fans should be ready for a lot of balls to get batted down at the line of scrimmage!

We really do need to think about how much these players are going to sign for, when measuring their value. Value. Value is defined as worth subtracted by cost in many academic settings. In the NFL historically the top 10 picks in the NFL draft get exponentially more $ than the rest of the rookies in guaranteed salary. Matthew Stafford only put up 7,731 passing yards in his college career, and he is due to make 41 million without ever taking a NFL snap. What do you think Sanchez is going to sign for? Cause I think he will want at-least 25-30 Million guaranteed, considering he is the 5th pick overall. As stated before he has the leverage and he won’t sign cheap. The value of Josh Freeman really becomes apparent when you realize at the 17th pick he will only be able to get around 5-13 million guaranteed from the Bucs. Value is not potential, It should be viewed as Value= Potential+Current Ability+Salary. The Tampa Bay Bucs got the real value in this draft, so Bucs GM Mark Dominik we salute you!

Which Player in this years draft will have the best Career in the NFL. (An early Mad’Nuff guarantee)

If you look at all the players in the draft from this year there is one player to me that stand out the most. That Player is Michael Crabtree I fell that he has the best ball skills of nay receiver coming out of the draft since Jerry Rice this combined with his speed which is not blazing but is still fast, and his hands make him the best total receiver in a while. When it is all said and done Crabtree will be this generation top receiver along with Larry Fitzgerald and Calvin Johnson. I feel that Macklin will be drafted over Crabtree which will just add fuel for him to become even better. Of all the players in this years draft Crabtree is my hands favorite and most sure pick and he will have the longevity of a Marvin Harrison or Jerry Rice in the League.

Bears Trade Kyle Orton and 2 First round Picks for Rex Grossman?

Bears Trade Kyle Orton and 2 First round Picks for Rex Grossemen?

OK that is not what happened but essentially Jay cutler and Rex are what I call “same guys” If you need an example, (Nick Nolte, Gary Busie (same guy)), (Lavernius Coles, Santana Moss (Same guy), (Phill Simms, Bommer Esaision(Same guy)). Meaning that they a different people but in fact look similar and have pretty much the exact same set of skills. Rex was touted for his arm strength and ability to continue a play, just like Cutler. The problem it is not the quarterbacks in Chicago it is the play calling, now the team has another Rex Grossman, who clearly did not work in their system and essentially are going to ruin Jay Cutlers career. If Rex Grossman was in Denver he would have played well to…..think about it Brian Griese, and Jake the Snake, both played well under Shannohan’s genius offensive designs. Chicago has made a huge mistake by giving up their top picks for another Rex Grossman, mark it down now this move will lead to Lovie Smith losing his job sooner or later. Now I am not saying that Jay cutler isn’t good believe me he is, but he isn’t great and the way the Chicago offense is currently set up you can’t succeed unless you are great. For this trade to work Chicago is going to need to change their offense to fit Jay cutler which is a spread balance attack, but Chicago has one problem; they can’t go spread because they have no receivers. Also due to the trade they won’t have a chance to pick up a top Wideout in the draft for two years. Great job Chicago (sarcasm)
