    Hurray for da Jete, now they get a chance to get the third best untried rookie QB.

    What are the odds they go for a safety instead? That'd be a Jete move.

    Inquiring minds want to know will the jete use this move to select the Third Franchise qb in the last ten years, or is it the fourth?

    And their #6 in the first.
    4 picks for 3 spits to be left with sloppy 3rds that probably would have fallen to 6 any way.
    4 and 5 aren’t drafting QBs.

    HAHAHAHAHAAAAAA!!!! :D:D:D A monumentally MORONIC move by the New Jersey Green Beans! Giving up THREE second-round picks to move up just three spots?! With a roster positively BEGGING for an injection of young talent? I can't wait to find out who they've identified as their rookie quarterback savior to make such a stupidly ill-advised sacrifice. The Jete QB controversy drama already has begun and we don't even know who the third participant is yet! Idiots. The Colts probably won't stop laughing hysterically about this robbery 'til sometime next week. I'll bet Goodell was tempted to intervene on behalf of his favorite team and void this giveaway for their own good.

    And to add to the laughter, their inability to tank correctly is biting them in the ass: all they had to do is lose one more game and they could have kept those three 2nd rounders!

    Ref: Colts-Jets trade proves the value of tanking

    Let's hope McKown and Teddy B lead them to another five wins this year!

    The Jete set themselves up for circus time signing Bilgewater. The smart move would've been to just keep McClown and one of either Pity or Quackenbush, then draft the rookie savior. Bilgewater is a huge complicating factor, especially if he plays well in preseason.

    Put this in the other thread, but in case ya missed it...

    Breer - Negotiations started at Senior Bowl

    The Jets suffered a big loss this week when Kirk Cousins signed with the Vikings. But the good news? They’d been preparing to take this blow since January.

    It played out this week, first with a slew of free-agent signings, then with the big bang on Saturday: an aggressive swing by GM Mike Maccagnan to send the Colts the sixth, 37th, and 49th picks in this year’s draft, plus the Jets’ 2019 second-rounder, for the third overall pick, which will be spent on the team’s next franchise quarterback.

    So Saturday was a significant day in franchise history, and an era-defining one for both Maccagnan and coach Todd Bowles. If they get the right quarterback, there’s a good chance they’ll be in East Rutherford for a long time. If they get the wrong one, it’s likely both guys will be fired. Here’s what’s clear: This offseason was always going to be about finding the quarterback for the Jets. Period.

    With that backdrop, the team’s brass was taking no chances. Plan A, back in May and June, was to be in position to pluck from a ballyhooed group of college quarterbacks, and owner Woody Johnson made it clear, before leaving for his ambassadorship in the summer, that he was all-in on the idea.

    As such, at ownership’s directive, the Jets live-scouted just about every UCLA (Josh Rosen), USC (Sam Darnold), Wyoming (Josh Allen), Oklahoma (Baker Mayfield), Louisville (Lamar Jackson) and Washington State (Luke Falk) game last fall, and put resources and bodies into doing background on each quarterback.

    But as that was happening, a feisty young defense sparked a three-game winning streak early in the year, and quarterbacks coach Jeremy Bates gained credibility in the building. Instead of landing at the top of the draft the Jets wound up with the sixth pick, Bates got promoted, and an ideal quarterback for his offense, Cousins, was out there to be signed. So what had been Plan A became Plan B.

    Once Cousins was off the board, it was on to Plan B (which originally had been Plan A), and that wasn’t just about trading up for the third pick.

    It was first about stocking the quarterback room with character, intelligence and competition, which the team feels like it accomplished by bringing back Josh McCown and adding Teddy Bridgewater, to create the right environment for the incoming rookie. Then, it was about giving that defense pieces with the money that would’ve gone to Cousins, and that happened with ex-Titans linebacker Avery Williamson and ex-Rams corner Trumaine Johnson signed.

    Because the Jets were picking sixth, the step that came Saturday—the trade up—was necessary. And the Jets had planned for that going back to January. Exploratory talks on moving up into the Top 4 began at the Senior Bowl, I’m told, and so New York wasn’t starting from zero when it was spurned by Cousins earlier in the week.

    Additionally, my understanding is that the team is comfortable with the top four quarterbacks in this year’s class—Rosen, Darnold, Mayfield and Allen. And with the Bills, Cardinals and Broncos looking at the idea of moving up, being aggressive became vital.

    Why do it now? Because as the spring moves forward, teams will have a better idea of which quarterbacks they like—or don’t like—and bidding could push the price tag up. Since the Jets have already spent endless resources on studying the top quarterbacks, they felt like they could move forward now with conviction and use their head start to their advantage.

    Will it work? It’s hard to say right now, of course. The last time three quarterbacks went at the top of the draft, two of them were Tim Couch and Akili Smith. What we do know, though, is that the really big decision here is the one that’ll be made on April 26.

    It just makes the Browns pick a QB at 1 and still get their best player at 4. It literally accomplished nothing if the Browns and Giants want to go QB. And if they don’t, they could have just stayed put.

    As I said in the other thread, the part that should scare you is that you got two jamokes afraid of losing their job doing what 'silver spoon' Woody wants, after years of over-drafting defense. Whomever they get is going to be roadkill. They've got no talent on offense, especially offensive line. Almost all the capital they've spent the last few years on defensive line has left. Their ability to back fill using those 2nd rounders is gone. And, worst of all, you've got Macca making the pick!

    Have you seen our 2nd round picks lately? Let's be honest. We really didn't give up much.

    And as far as worrying about Macc n Bowles? Maybe, except I completely agree with what they're doing now.

    I hated winning games last year and starting McCown. But this off-season has been awesome so far.

    Well, you're a Jete fan, and we know how much the off-season means to you.

    The rest of us like our victories to come during the season.

    By moving up, they increase their number of quarterback choices, and thus maximize their subsequent embarrassment at the time of the inevitable flameout and roster cut.
