So, the Jets screwed themselves again? They got a 7th round pick and said "Na, we don't want it". What kind of front office does that?
I really don't understand this one. wtf?
There's another pick the Jets won't be able to find a qb with.
:lol: But seriously! :crazy:
I understand that a 7th round pick is not really that great of compensation, but a draft pick is still a draft pick. A 7th round pick can sweeten a trade offer, it could land you a draft surprise or it could end up being a player that doesn't make the team. Still, I would rather have the pick then not have it.
Are we sure the writer didn't flip it? The pick going back from Packers to Jets?
It would make sense if the pic was from the packers to the jets...but if not you can't help but :chuckle: then :lol: followed by :sidelol:
No, the original trade had the Jets getting a 7th round pick from the Packers if Favre retired after one season. Favre retired, so the Jets got the pick. Now for some reason, they are sending it back to the Packers.
Probably has something to do with the salary cap.Tannenbaum is a genius manuevering within the cap.
With a genius like that who needs Forrest Gump around. :lol:
ok, I read your post and can't help wondering....How the hell does a 7th round pick next year have anything to do with your salary cap? I realize your a Jet fan and tryin to defend your Gm, but come on, that is just idiotic.
BTW, Tanny didn't care about the 7th rounder, it wouldn't be much ammo when it comes to trading up in the first round next yr.
Who cares? Its a 7th round pick... You guys use anything to try and make fun of the Jets, this is completely stupid. 9 out of 10 times your 7th round pick will be camp fodder anyways. Plus you can find the same type of gems in UDFA, like the Jets may of found this year with Jammal Westerman who has been outstanding in camp for us.
Genius? He just gave away a draft pick. That is like saying someone who jumps off the roof of a building instead of taking the stairs is a genius.
This is a boneheaded move by the Jets and you know it. I mentioned above that yes 7th round picks hardly have success, however there is more then one way to use a 7th round pick. Say come draft day next year and there is a player the Jets really want in the 4th round. However, there are still five teams to pick in front of them. They could use that extra 7th round pick to swing a trade to move up a few spots and get the guy they want.
The Jets won't have that luxury now.
Come on now...if past history has taught us anything, the jets really don't value draft picks unless they are in the top 10...
Dude..... You don't even know if its a boneheaded move because you don't even know why it was given back, seriously you are getting all worked up over a 7th round pick, you are just looking for an excuse to make fun of the Jets. I can see if this was a 1st round or 2nd round pick, but a 7th?
You'd be surprised at how valuable a 7th round pick can be.
It has nothing to do with the Jets. If the Colts gave away a 7th round pick for nothing I would still think it was a boneheaded move. Heck, I would be upset and embarrassed if the Dolphins just decide to give away a 7th round pick and get nothing in return.
Anyone trying to argue that this wasn't a retarded move is just being a homer.
WhiteShoeWillie and nyjunc seem to be the only reasonable Jets fans on the site. Well, the only decent ones I've come across.
some jet fans feel that their team can do no wrong. **** gets annoying
Here's the explanation:
^ It still seems retarded to me.
Still sounds like the Packers pulled one over on the Jets. The poison pill was if the Jets TRADED Favre to a NFC North team, there was nothing about releasing him and having him sign with a NFC North team. Unless the Jets were planning on trying to trade Favre to the Vikings, this was an unnecessary move.
Sounds to me like the front office of the Jets didn't fully understand the language of the Favre trade and panicked. If there was a league technicality that prevented them from using future 1st round picks while Favre was still their property, they could have simply just RELEASED Favre before the draft. By waiting a few extra days, they panicked and lost a future 7th round pick.
This clarification only cements the notion that the Jets made a boneheaded move.
I realize that reading comprehension is not a strong suite on Finheaven,but they gave the pick to Green Bay as incentive to re-write the wording of the previous trade terms to take all restrictions off of any future draft picks that they may want to include in a future trade.Some of you just look for reasons to bash the Jets or ANY fans of that team.This was a good move if you have plans for something in the future that none of us are aware of at this time.Keep laughing boneheads.........
The cap is in effect every year.Good GM's plan years ahead.
Now that we know why,yes,he is a genius,or don't you yet fully understand?
Do you still believe that?
Why,because when one of you calls them an idiot they don't fire back as hard as some others??
A strong suite? What is a strong suite? Oh, did you mean strong SUIT? I guess grammar is not a strong SUIT for Jet fans.
As of right now, there will be NO salary cap in 2010. So that blows your theory.
Yes we do know why. However why didn't your genius just release Favre BEFORE the draft? Then he never would have had to make any revisions to the original trade and would have been able to keep that 7th round pick. Or don't you understand that? hmm?
No actually, it's because they are logical in their posts unlike some other Jets fans such as yourself.:up:
all i know is that if sanchez doesnt work out, you guys are screwed a long time draft wise. You are starting to look like Snyder in DC.
The Packers clearly worked the Jets on this one. The ONLY way the Jets would have ever had to give up picks to the Packers is if they traded Favre to a divisional opponent. The trade terms stated that the Jets got that 7th round pick if Favre retired. He did.
What aren't you understanding?
