The Jets signed Brodney Pool today and also acquired Cromartie in the trade. Cromartie should excel in the Jets D. And Pool with exception of gettin a concussion everytime he leaves the house is a really good safety. The Jets only gave up 153 yards passing a game last year and just got better if thats possible. And now they are looking to sign Tomlinson whom I think still has something left in the tank. Why does it seem like they are running away with the division. They win and will win because they arent afraid to spend money to get talent. They have the right owner and front office in place. I also wouldnt be surprised to see them go after Brandon Marshall as well.
Im not saying we should sign every free agent on the market but we have holes that the draft isnt going to fill. Boldin and a 5th for a 3rd and 4th was a no brainer by Baltimore. Atogwe not being talked to yet is a huge mistake. Cutting Gibril Wilson who can play before we had a back up plan was not a great move. But I am glad that we didnt sign Bryant. He has not proven that he can contribute on an every game basis. Antrel Rolle and Ryan Clark can make plays but lack coverage skills. They are basically Gibril Wilson with more zeros on their paycheck.
I like drafting and building a team that way but there is noone in the draft at #12 that will compare to Marshall. He is proven and is a big time wr. Dez will not be as good as Marshall. Dan Williams , McClain, Earl Thomas . I dont care what name you throw out there they are Brandon Marshall and wont make the difference he can. BP always wants to sign no name bench warmers and make them Pro Bowl caliber but it just doesnt work that way. He has been in the league long enough to know what it takes to win. Bess as your #1 is not the way. Cutting your starting S when you dont have one is insane.This is the same old story every year with the same ending. will it ever change or are we doomed to fail year after year.Only time will tell but i feel like Nostradamus.
