    The funny thing is that YES the Jets did screw themselves by winning that game!
    They dropped themselves all the way to the #6 pick when they would have been #2 or #3 at worse before beating KC. :)
    Oh and here is the cherry, the reason the Jets opponent's SOS is higher is that they had to face the 16-0 Patriots. LOL.
    What delicious irony!

    So what will the Rats be looking to draft as they pick right before us?

    They pretty much suck everywhere.
    I'd go with BPA in their position, but I think one of their worst weaknesses was defending the run. #30 overall vs run.
    Picking a stout DE or DT would probably be best for them.
    Then again this is a team that drafted a TE over Dan Marino, so who knows WHAT they'll do! :p

    I never knew that.
    I believe their fans want them to take McFadden but fans don't make the pick.

    They won't get him at 6. They'll have to mortgage the farm to move up to get him which like last year will weaken them even more. What did they have last year - 4 total picks in the draft.

    Dallas will move in to swipe McFadden up. Who is their most likely trading partner? Which of the first 5 teams could move down to pick up the 2 firsts' that Dallas has and more and/or a player?

    The jets picked Obrian over Marino. We picked Eason.

    Why do people keep saying Dallas wants McFadden? Don't they already have 2 starting caliber RBs?

    Julius Jones is a free agent. Marion Barber is a restricted free agent. Jerry Jones is an Arkansas alum, who is supposedly infatuated with McFadden...

    He'd be better off partnering Felix Jones with Barber and using Cleveland's pick on the best player available at CB or WR.

    I bet the Jets fans are ticked at that OT win. They cost themselves a great, great shot at McFadden. I was so glad they kicked that field goal, McFadden in our division for the next 10 years, would not have been fun.

    I could see a scenario where C Long falls to #6 and the Jets gobble him up.

    Where do we think McFadden will go? 4th? Miami will be looking at Dorsey I'm sure, Rams at Long, can't see the Chiefs taking him at 3. Oakland have Rhodes and Jordan, and the kid they took in the 3rd (think it was the third?) last year who'd missed a lot of time injured and might have gone higher, but neither of those strikes me as a real elite runner (although Jordan was having a superb year).

    If the Raiders don't take him, then I'm not sure the Falcs do who have massive problems everywhere, starting with Quarterback. Could he fall to the Jets? I'm not sure either they take him with the problems they have. I don't think they have a bad pair of runners anyway.

    Wow, could he fall to us?
