Get A King’s Ransom For Revis Or Keep Him
When healthy, Darrelle Revis is the best on a team that is in dire need of three to four pieces on offense. Can Revis provide this compensation right now, only months after ACL surgery? We suggest that the Jets find out, by asking for a king’s ransom for him, hoping there’s a taker. If not, Gang Green should sit tight with him, and look to open up cap room in another way. There have to be other roads to take.
Revis is too good for the Jets to feel pressured in any way to get rid of him for say, a 2nd and 4th rounder. Second level value due to his knee injury. Not when his signing elsewhere before 2014 guarantees the Jets a third round pick as compensation anyway.
Woody, for a ton of pieces for 24. That, or else try to negotiate with the Revis team and go for a long term deal that keeps him a Jet. No cheap giveaways involving the team’s best player please.
Play Like A Jet? No. Play Like Chrebet
Toughness, resiliency, and a team first attitude. Letting one’s play on the field speak for itself. That is what “Play Like a Jet” should mean from here on in. The way that Wayne Chrebet used to do it.
Chrebet’s no nonsense “gamer” style ought to be the template going forward for a franchise that is once again looking to rebrand itself individually and collectively,
Sanchez Doesn’t Need Garcia, He Needs Dr. Phil
Mark Sanchez will be back. GM John Idzik has already intimated that. He will have veteran competition too this year. Probably a Matt Moore type, a cheap option with experience. Sanchez is meeting these days with former QB Jeff Garcia to learn the West Coast system that new OC Marty Mornhinweg will implement. Yet playbooks and preparation are never a problem for Sanchez, who will now be in his third system as a Jet. Self confidence and a short memory is.
Sanchez has to somehow return to Florham Park with an exterior that is harder than he has ever shown. The fans have him on a short rope now. Opposing teams love trying to rattle him. He will be challenged for his job all summer too. Which Sanchez will we see after those first mistakes, and boos at home? The guy who is ready to lead finally, or the one who hesitates, doubts himself, and compounds mistakes?
Sanchez needs to clean up the emotional part of his game. More than he has to up his understanding of the X’s and O’s.
If he can do that, he can succeed in the right system with the proper help. If he can’t, no system, personnel additions, or grasp of the playbook will matter.
Free Agency Heats Up In March
Who will join Sanchez at QB and what will happen to Tim Tebow? Will Revis remain a Jet? These questions and many more are now just weeks away from getting answered.
6-10 means “not good enough.” Expect the unexpected with regard to personnel moves. It’s all about to heat up. The rumors, the deceptions, the sneak attacks for off the radar players. The free agency period is a game within the game, and one the Jets must perform better at this year if they want to have a chance to compete in 2013.
BEST OF MAXIM
BREAK THE BANK
The New York Jets reportedly are open to trading CB Darrelle Revis, who apparently is seeking a contract that would be of historic proportions.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a desperate need to add a cornerback or two this upcoming offseason. Do they have an interest in obtaining New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis. One internet site suggests that the Buccaneers have reached out to the Jets to inquire about obtaining the talented corner.
The controversial personality known as Incarceratedbob tweeted this morning that the Buccaneers...
Outside of NFL Draft Prospects and potential free agent additions, the hottest debate topic circulating the New York Jets at the current time is undoubtedly the recent news that the Jets will look into trading Cornerback Darrelle Revis. When discussing a team’s best player, one who is arguably the best defensive player in the entire league, debates are destined to gain intensity...
Give new Jets general Manager John Idzik credit, he can smell trouble. After swimming through waves of bad publicity once again with news that the team is exploring trade scenarios for star cornerback Darrelle Revis, Idzik reached out to his injured star to do damage control.

“I reached out to Darrelle...
Here’s another installment of speculative trade ideas for Jets CB Darrelle Revis.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter joined SPN Radio Tuesday morning and tossed out a speculative trade idea that would involve the Jets sending Revis to the San Francisco 49ers in return for QB Alex Smith and a second round pick, per Jane McManus.
There’s no question that the Jets could use quarterback and...
The reasons for not trading Darrelle Revis are obvious. When healthy, this guy is not only the Jets’ best player, but probably the best defensive back in the entire NFL and maybe even the best overall defensive player in the NFL. Including this year, when he played just 1 ½ games thanks to injury, Revis has allowed 153 completions on 371 attempts (41.2%) for 1946 yards (5.2 YPA...
Not often does one of the best players in football become available, but that’s exactly what appears to be happening in New York.
Darrelle Revis is rumored to be on the move, or at least on the trade block, and there will be plenty of teams lining up at the Jets’ door for a crack at the best cornerback in football.
Revis played just two games in 2012, but the Jets still managed...

Let's cut to the chase. Revis, who will be a free agent following the 2013 season, is reportedly...
New York Jets general manager John Idzik was groomed in an organization built on the premise of competition bulding contenders, an idea he's ready to introduce in his first days on the job with his new team. Idzik, introduced last week as Mike Tannenbaum's replacement, will have control over the roster and personnel decisions. That includes the ongoing hot-button topic...
With Mark Sanchez's future in New York tenuous at best, the Jets are paying close attention to Miami of Ohio University quarterback Zac Dysert.
The Jets may be open to moving on from Mark Sanchez, but they’re really scraping the bottom of the barrel when it comes to finding a suitable replacement.
With this year’s draft unlikely to produce any strong quarterbacks, the Jets have had to look elsewhere in the league — or, in this case, elsewhere in the league from several years ago.
The Jets have had “some very exploratory...
In the eighth paragraph of his Monday story about the New York Jets' plans to bring in competition for Mark Sanchez, Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger had a small tidbit about Gang Green having "very exploratory, informal" discussions about JaMarcus Russell.So of course, ProFootballTalk brought it to the forefront. (photo: The Brit_2, Flickr)Orr later tweeted the...
As the Jets try to clean up their mess, the one consistent question that remains is what will the team do about Mark Sanchez.
Many pundits assume he’ll only be on the roster because of his guaranteed $8.5 million salary this season. Many expect him to get competition.
One of his teammates who’s supported him since the beginning of this mess, Antonio Cromartie, thinks Sanchez...
Mike Tannenbaum spoke to reporters for the first time Tuesday since being fired by the New York Jets on New Year's Eve.
The former Jets general manager — who was piloting the Jets front office while the team fell into disarray — broke his silence to discuss his perceived failures on Super Bowl Radio Row in New Orleans yesterday.
Tannenbaum didn't shy away from his two...
In a continued attempt to push starting quarterback Mark Sanchez, the New York Jets have had "exploratory, informal discussions" regarding former No. 1 overall pick JeMarcus Russell, according to a Newark (N.J.) Star-Ledger Report. Similar to the thinking that led to the deal for Tim Tebow, the team remains concerned about Sanchez, who is guaranteed an $8.25 million salary...
