There is a great disturbance in the NY sports media. As if tens of writers all cried out in anguish at once.

..though interesting question.. this (and the Redskins') move comes after Peyton told those teams "no".
Has he said at least "maybe" to anyone yet?

Terrible contract. No one else was bidding for Sanchez's services, there was no need to give him top tier money. Hopefully the reported numbers are inflated and tied up in unrealistic incentives.

As for Peyton, this lends credence to the idea that he doesn't want to play in the AFC East. The Jets are certainly more "Win Now" capable than the Dolphins would be. Manning to Denver, Tebow to Jacksonville.
 
2012-03-10 11:39:04 AM  
If they did this because Peyton told them no, then while it's still stupid to give Sanchez even one dollar, it's not as monumentally pants-on-head retarded as just deciding to not go with Peyton because Sanchez is your guy.

Are the Jets aware that Sanchez is among the worst QB's in football? Have they ever watched him play? What on earth would compel them to extend Sanchez?

Nacho isn't as bad as he gets portrayed as, but he's not worth a $40m extension. Maybe a $10m top. Especially with the salary cap situation in Ryanville.

LucklessWonder: Nacho isn't as bad as he gets portrayed as, but he's not worth a $40m extension.


Yes he is. He is not among the top 32 QB's in football, and should not be starting for any team.
 
2012-03-10 12:00:15 PM  
So, the Jets were flirting with someone else, and to make up for it they decided to buy Sanchez a diamond to let him know he's loved.

Cute.

Sanchez is fine. Jets have a defense that is a shadow of the 2009 team & the offense has changed out a ridiculous amount of people. However they're sticking with LT & Greene which isn't working.

Sanchez has 2 good seasons and damn near pulled off a 20 point comeback in the AFC Championship game at Pittsburgh.

Of course if I'm wrong fark the Jets. It is way too much money.

bionicjoe: Sanchez has 2 good seasons and damn near pulled off a 20 point comeback in the AFC Championship game at Pittsburgh.


Part of the reason they were down 24-0 is that Sanchez started that game 3-for-9 for 24 yards with a fumble that was returned for a TD.

The dude sure is spending a lot of time in Denver. I don't give a crap about the Broncos, in fact I sort of dislike them, but it would make for some great threads if he signed there.

Of all the teams left, though, I think Seattle is the only one who can tell him "sign with us, and we'll let you bring Reggie Wayne and, if you insist, Dallas Clark, too. Here's the check."
 
2012-03-10 12:35:06 PM  
This is awful.
 
2012-03-10 12:35:25 PM  

I'm okay with this. Especially since the whole Jets organization is farked and the problems do not begin or end with Sanchez. The Jets would do themselves good to see how the other NY team runs, and try to follow suit.


I'm stunned that Rex Ryan didn't see his father's mistakes and try to avoid them. Buddy Ryan was the biggest mouth out there and one of the most mediocre head coaches.

 
2012-03-10 12:39:34 PM  
Not shocked at all. Sanchez will tolerate the circus antics that most other QBs won't.

what makes the Denver situation complicated is that Peyton and Tebow have the same agent

This contract is so terrible it will have repercussions throughout the league. Now Alex Smith (or more accurately, his agent) will want a silly contract from the 49ers.

HaywoodJablonski: The Road to Houston gets even clearer. Miami sucks, Peyton. You know you want to play at Reliant


Why? We made the playoffs last year with a third string QB and our team is young as hell. I wouldn't put the future on a guy that might have 2 or 3 years left on a team not built for him. Schaub has next year to prove his worth then his contract is out. As long as he doesn't get hurt, we're golden.

Although I admit it would be interesting to see the guy that was the Texans nightmare for most of its time in the NFL throwing to AJ.

Sanchez is fine. Sanchez has 2 good seasons.


Uh, no.

26th and 18th DYAR are not "fine", nor "good".

He is maybe "serviceable" but that's only because the NYJ top 5 Defense has bailed his ass out over and over again. He had 2 years remaining on his original deal...there was NO reason to extend him even if you look into signing Manning.

AND you sure as hell don't give him Big Ben, Carson Palmer, Schaub, Rivers money...that's just stupidity.

That's like saying the grass isn't green or the sky isn't blue. Of course Schuab will get injured.

I'd like to see him go to the Texans. I think you try to restructure Schuab's deal and have him sit behind Manning as a secure backup. Schuab wouldn't want to play second fiddle, so you trade him for some picks.

Then you have Yates sit 2nd string and learn from one of the all time great quarterbacks. When Manning retires/can't play anymore/gets injured, you've got Yates ready to go.

If Manning wants to win another championship, I think the Texans or the 49ers (49ers after they draft or sign a WR or two) are the two best built teams to contend with for another three years or so. Wouldn't mind seeing him on either one.
 
2012-03-10 01:12:28 PM  
As a Patriots fan, this gives me a happy. Sanchize has not progressed one iota under Ryan, despite actually trying to call something other than a run 99.999999999999% of the time like he did Ryan's first season.

That team is slipping. If the Patriots can get their heads far enough out of their asses to see the three main faults with the 2011 team, they should be great.*

\as the three faults are Belichick's not a defensive genius, Jonathan Kraft can't draft for shiat and Tom Brady blew the Super Bowl by letting everything get to him, not sure that's not an Everest-sized "if."

Andre and Owen are already redoing their contracts so we can keep Mario and Chris Meyers. I can't link the article cause I'm on my phone.

This team was built around Schaub. We're not bringing in Manning cause this front office has already proven that they're thinking long term. Fans wanted Bush or Young? Sorry, draft Mario. Fans wanted Kubiak run out of town? Sorry, keep him and get Phillips. I believe McNair and company really care about this franchise. There has been some big stumbles but they've made serious progress and a short term fix won't help.

Now, about Schaub. He's a great QB but his bones are made of 4 week old Olive Garden breadsticks. The pressure is on now and his contract is out next year. Either he shows everyone he's our guy next year or he will be traded. There's plenty of teams that would take him for some good trades or draft picks.

I'm torn about Peyton to the Niners. As a Niners fan, Peyton Manning is Peyton Manning. But I've been somewhat of an Alex Smith defender all these years (not that he was any good, but with that o-line he didn't stand a chance until now). So it was really nice to see him do well.

Of course. It's not like Schaub played a full 16 games in 2009 or 2010, or wasn't fully healthy halfway through the year last year until Fat Albert fell on his foot in a freak play.

It's funny the way some of you guys rush to say that a guy is injury prone. In fact, Matt Stafford missed more games in his first 2 years than Schaub has in his whole 8 year career. You want Peyton Manning to replace Stafford too?

Go ahead and keep throwing Schaub under the bus, maybe you can try to give Sage Rosenfels the job again.

So that's what committing nine turnovers in three straight losses to end the season gets you. Dan Synder must be a shadow consultant with the Jets, or maybe Matt Millen.

OK Jet fans. You can officially kiss yet another season goodbye now.
 
2012-03-10 03:09:02 PM  
The contract went from $17.5M guaranteed for 2012/2013 to 20.25 guaranteed for 2012/2013.

Jets went from about $7M under the cap to about $14M under the cap this season.

The Jets have a lot of room under the cap and 4 starters (none of top tier quality) as FA next season (Slauson, Moore, Greene, Keller) for 2013. Most likely the Jets will move some of the 2013 commitments to 2014 when the cap will go up by $30 - $40M due to the new TV contract.

Since the Jets already decided to keep Sanchez for next season, pushing the guaranteed money makes sense, because the $7M in cap savings this season is worth more than the $10M in cap spend in 2013 (because they already have a lot of money), and FAR more than 2014 (because the extra $30M+ under the cap).

Essentially the Jets felt it was better to go from $7M under in 2012 + (I'm guessing) $30M under in 2013, to $14M under in 2012 + (I'm guessing) $20M under in 2013.

On the off chance that Sanchez improves, the Jets all of a sudden have an incredibly cap friendly contract that they own the whole option on. There's a lot of risk, but it's not a terrible move by the GM

You can't make someone into a tier 1 quarterback just by paying them tier 1 money.

Peyton to the Niners means Harbaugh has to install a new offense that might not necessarily match up with the personnel that got them to the NFCCG. Manning will want his offense wherever he ends up. If your current offense works, stay away.

As I posted in the dead "LT throws Sandwich under the bus" thread:

This is the tried-and-true "We're so sorry we publicly admitted we have no confidence in you by trying to lure other QBs to out team. We actually do believe in you (because you're our best option until you're not), so here's some cash to mend your ego." $20.5M in guarantees, but the only real guarantee is another few years of offensive mediocrity for the minor league New York football team.

iron_city_ap: Peyton to the Niners means Harbaugh has to install a new offense that might not necessarily match up with the personnel that got them to the NFCCG


The personnel that got the Niners to the champ. game was their defense and special teams. Peyton to San Francisco makes the Niners the favorite to win the superbowl, though of course a lot can happen between OTA's and the presentation of the Lombardi trophy.

I'm sick of watching Smith. Trent Baalke, go get Peyton!

Yea but you'd have to figure out his reasoning for it. Why would he do a switcharoo in this instance? With the exception of maybe the Patriots, Saints and Giants Manning could walk into any team's office and they'd think long and hard about it.

Not to mention, it doesn't seem like Harbourough's style to drop Smith
 
2012-03-10 06:04:29 PM  
Sanchez is still young and could improve, so im not writting him off just yet. But, I'd wait until he showed signs of improvement before opening the cheque book.
 
2012-03-10 06:08:55 PM  

InferiousX: Yea but you'd have to figure out his reasoning for it. Why would he do a switcharoo in this instance?


Because he is negotiating (potentially) with both Smith and Manning, and the less info the front office lets out, the better. If other teams know San Francisco is negotiation with Manning, they'll probably up their offers, which means the Niners would either have to up their offer or let him go. Further, negotiations with Manning could anger Smith, who then might not want to come back (not that I'd really care).

Not to mention, it doesn't seem like Harbourough's style to drop Smith

It's Harbaugh, and I'm not even sure what you mean by this.
 
2012-03-10 06:10:21 PM  

4NSpy: Sanchez is still young and could improve, so im not writting him off just yet.


There was a time when I was young and could have improved, too. Sometimes, you just have to recognize that a guy sucks and cut your losses. Every year that Sanchez is the starting qb is another year the Jets are guaranteed to not win the super bowl.
 
2012-03-10 06:10:44 PM  

InferiousX: With the exception of maybe the Patriots, Saints and Giants Manning could walk into any team's office and they'd think long and hard about it.


Unlikely. I doubt the Chargers, Lions, Rams, Steelers, Ravens, 49ers, or even the Bills would consider it as a good business decision. They've all locked in on a QB.
