good 4 them, bad 4 us.... i didn't want the guy on my team, but i didn't want him in my division either. The Jets are real dumb this year... they get Kenkins for a 3rd and a 5th ?!?!?!? they get rid of vilma for a 4th ?!?!?!? they piss away money to an old fart guard ???? i'm happy because they are heading backwards

I think they got solid value on all trades honestly. Vilma may not even be worth a 4th, but if he plays up to his abilities, that 4th will turn into a 2nd rounder.

And I liked and called the Faneca signing. Good day for the Jets FO.

Supposedly Faneca hasn't yet committed to the Jets (according to his agent on PFT), but if he has they just got an excellent player, possibly the best guard in the NFL and he is only 31.

They will have gotten him for the same price the Dolphins spent on Smiley and Torbor.

after seeing burger be the second most sacked qb and especially seeing his interior line man handled by even avg DE i woder how good this guy actually his.

the steelers are rebuilding the OL as it stunk to high heavens last year.

Let me guess, he sucks because he will be on the Jet's, but if he was a Fin, it would be the second coming.

Yea thats usually the way it works. Fin fans seem to be really high on Pace at the moment. I wonder if Mangini is gonna try to steal him away from Parcels. Seems pretty obvious that Fins really covet the guy, I'm surprised they let him leave FL in the first place.

You've gotta be kidding. Whether or not the Jets overpaid for Jenkins remains to be seen, but the potential that he can fill the void that we've had at NT for the past 2 seasons is well worth the risk. The Jets have had one of the worst rushing defenses in the league and this was an aggressive move by the FO to try and change that.

Personally, I like when my team trys to fill it's holes with the BPA. Same thing with Faneca. Yes he's a little older, but where his body may start to go soon his experience will be invaluable for DBrick and Mangold. Chances are they will recoup at least one of the picks lost for Jenkins by dealing Dewayne Robertson.

You're really crazy if you think the Jets are moving in the wrong direction.

He hasn't signed the deal, and is supposed to announce who he will sign with at 5:30pm today.

I'm hoping the Cardinals figured out some way to take him away from the Jets.

It's official. He's a Jet. 5 years, $40 million.
