Of course Vick is more explosive than Matt Moore. I agreed with you that Vick is by far the best athlete at QB that is going to hit free agency. There are only a couple of reasons why I favor Moore over Vick. The first is that Moore's price tag will be much lower. No team will be willing to give Moore a big contract where as some team might overpay for Vick. The second reason is that Vick is beyond fragile. He has always been injury prone and now with all of the concussions, he is more likely to miss a significant portion of the season.
Pettine is reportedly the leak in the organization for a number of NYDN stories. Can't find a good link, but Francessa was blasting him for it and a few people are talking about it on other forums. Usually I'm the guy asking for proof, but I believe this 100%. It makes sense for a bunch of different "unnamed sources" articles this year, especially the one about Rex wanting the offense overhauled, as only a defensive guy would leak something like that. If he is the leak, I would be shocked if he's back.
Jets badly need a young OC, and unfortunately, they'll now need a younger DC who won't be calling plays, as I'm guessing Rex will be doing that full time again.
If Matt Moore comes to the Jets, he should wear #6, as no one will tell the difference between he and Sanchez's QBing skills.
But as for your take on Matt Moore, what would your expectations of him be? Do you think the Jets would be competitive with him, or are would you bring in Moore to tank the season and rebuild entirely.
I'm with Magoo - a big no to Vick. But there aren't all that many options out there. I think it's Alex Smith or bust.
If the Jets did sign Vick, his contract should have little guaranteed money. I would put most of the money in incentives like making the playoffs and number of games started. I'm just worried that if the Jets signed Vick, he would get knocked out for the season before week 4.
Smith will have suitors if he's cut who will be willing to pay him starter money.
A name that I heard yesterday on SNY is Fitzpatrick. I just don't think he's an upgrade over Sanchez, but he might be more affordable than Vick and Smith.
My guess is that Matt Moore will be brought in to compete with Sanchez. Stanton would be an interesting option, but he'll bever come back here IMO, and while I like Garrard's talent, he's gotten brittle.

this thread is a joke. Im a huge jets fan. This is easy. We have so many holes on
our team we should trade down in the draft try to acquire extra second round picks. Id draft an Oline in the First Round (G Chance Warmack Alabama). Sign a tackle to take over for Howard (David Diehl Giants will cut). Second Round draft either Giovanni Benard or Montee Ball (Both are very explosive). If they do trade down for another second rounder draft QB Landry Jones. We wont have alot of money so I'd let Dustin Keller go being that i think we have to resign Brandon Moore who is more important than Keller.Cut or let leave via free agency Greene, Pace, Scott, Slauson, Tebow, Sanchez. Try and resign L.landry and Brandon Moore. Sign Matt Moore. Look at his Stats when he has been given the chance. Completes about 60% of his passes. Would be very good with this oline. Draft a Tight end in the Third round that can backup Cumberland and Block.
QB Matt Moore DE Coples
RB Gio Benard or Montee Ball NT Pouha
WR Holmes DE Wilkerson
WR Edwards OLB Free Agent( Bring Pace back on a Lower contract)
WR Kerley ILB Harris
TE Cumberland ILB Damario Davis
RT Diehl OLB McIntyre (playing very well)
G Moore CB Revis
C Mangold FS Bush
G Warmack SS Landry
LT Fergerson CB Cromartie K Novak P Malone
PR Kerley KR Mcknight
And Magoo, I am "intrigued" by the possibility of Ryan Fitzpatrick. I don't think he is as bad as many people I know in Western NY make him out to be.
As for what happens next year and beyond, I am content with a "retooling" job if it is done the right way. The Jets don't need to do this crap like they have in the past with guys like Bart Scott and Calvin Pace, "Hey, let's lower your salary this year for a full guarantee next year." Let's get rid of the garbage-- Scott, Pace, Eric Smith, Jason Smith, Tim Tebow--- get our cap in better shape for the future, and make smart, efficient FA Signings and by all means, draft A LOT better!

PSD's Sheldon Richardson!!!
Ron Rivera for DC. Reports are that he won't be back with the Panthers. He was an awesome defensive coordinator for both the Bears and the Chargers when he was with them.
I don't see how Pettine comes back.
Yankees - Jets - Rockets
Let the offseason fun begin. First the front office. Seems like a new GM and two new coordinators, hourly Rex is back. Personnel wise its clear where our holes are, QB RB OL LB S. We also need to add depth around the entire team. Maybe under new coordinators our youth stats performing better we have some guys who have shown flashes, McKnight Powell McIntyre Allen Davis Coples& Ellis to name some. Jets aren't as bad off as it seems sometimes.
