    This post is so spot on. Jets are constantly trying to be smarter than the rest of the league and failing spectacularly in doing so. Like the OP, I also cannot recall a single example of one of their many, many “outside the box” moves has actually worked out. Gase is the most recent example.

    Thinking "outside the box" has hurt this franchise

    Last off-season Darnold was “the second most untradeable player in the NFL” according to Jets fans. After another crappy season, it’s time for the “year 2 to year 3 leap” which is apparently thing now that the “year 1 to year 2 leap” was a predictable disaster.

    Just like last year, they are pointing to moderate success against the dregs of the league as evidence that blockhead turned the corner.

    Trumaine Johnson will be cut, even though he has a dead cap of $12M and cap savings of just $3M...lol

    Revis and Trumaine Johnson stole money from Woody and Christophah dopes. And now they’re looking to sign the next thief.

    Not to mention the dopes paid big bucks for the Revis Retirement Tour and dopey Jete fans ate it up.

    No doubt they will overpay for some more ageing free agents this off season, that's what da Jete do.

    I'd like to keep Bell. Robby too.

    But more importantly, need to build a good oline. We need an offseason similar to the Brick/Mangold offseason.

    Jets don't have 2 1st rounders this time though. So use our 1st on an LT, then try to get 2 more good olinemen in FA.

    If that means not re-signing Robby... so be it.

    Having a "Bell" with an improved oline would be a great combo though, and would certainly help Sam.

    No matter what though, need to build a good oline.

    But what about ownership, GM, coaching, quarterback, defensive line, cornerbacks, linebackers, fan base, parking lot attendants and stadium staff, not to mention those godawful uniforms? They all SUCK!

    Why have Bell at $13M if you need to majorly upgrade the offensive line just to get him to an average yards per carry? A smart team (therefore not the Jets) would spend that Bell money on offensive linemen that would help in both the run and pass game and then find a cheap mid-round pick who would be just fine at RB.

    I think there's a good chance the Jets end up with 3 new olinemen between the draft and free agency, while also keeping Bell.

    In some ways Bell's ability equates to having a better oline. His running, catching and blocking is not something you replace easily.

    The upgraded oline with someone like Bell would really give Sam an advantage.

    Now the kid just has to keep himself healthy.

    The last time he ran for 30+ yards on a carry was the 2016 season. Many thought he was declining in 2017 when he averaged just 4.0 ypc behind a great Steelers o-line. James Conner replaced him and averaged 4.5 yards. Then last year Bell averaged 3.2 yards, which is “terrible no matter who is blocking” territory. I really don’t see any evidence that Bell is even an average RB. He likely would have been released during the season if he had a different name/contract...guy is just done.

    Conner did well because defenses weren't focused on him, as they were with Bell.

    On the Jets... with almost half the season spent with the QB position in chaos, he was the defense's only focus.

    I saw enough brief glimpses from Bell to know he's still a legit special player.

    If that were true then elite running backs would be less efficient than average running backs. It definitely isn’t true. Bell was given the same focus as in previous seasons, when he was significantly better against the same defensive formations. Also, Conner was a pro bowler in 2018; I think defenses noticed him too.

    True story:

    My girlfriend and I like to play the $100,000 Pyramid with each other and see if we can "win" within 60 seconds (no we are not an elderly married couple). So the final category was "Things that are rare".

    Me: Gold.... diamonds.... gems....
    Her: Things that are valuable... things you buy.... things you sell....

    <long pause because I can't think of anything.... finally...>

    Me: A New York Jets Super Bowl victory
    Her: Things that are rare!!

    dingdingdingdingdingdingdingdingding.......... :D:D:D

    Ageism is rampant on this board; being elderly and married should be considered a good thing. I'll bet most old married couples would consider playing $100k Pyramid a frivolous waste of precious time.
