    Offseason Report Card Part 1 of 3

    I figure this could be fun to track everyone's grades of the Jets offseason for:
    Free Agency ---> part 1 of 3
    Draft part ---> 2 of 3
    Post Draft ---> part 3 of 3

    When the final roster is set, we will accumulate all the grades and give the Jets a final score for the offseason.

    REMEMBER, YOU'RE GRADING FOR ALL MOVES MADE PRIOR TO THE DRAFT
    We will create another poll strictly for the draft

    I'm torn between B and B+ but I think the CJ move brings me to a B+

    Went with a C+. I agree, I loved the CJ move, and I loved the Decker signing, but I really dislike how we handled the corner situation. And, maybe this is unfair, but I HATE that Revis is a Patriot, on a deal that we could have and should have afforded

    B for me, wish we addressed the secondary a little better. If we didn't get CJ2k it would of been a C.

    1) Breno Giacomini T. Should post the same level of production that Austin Howard gave us for a cheaper contract so we can resign players such as Muhammad Wilkerson for next season. Good move, and hopefully the guy stays healthy.

    2) Willie Colon G. Good vet to have, hopefully he cuts back a little on the penalties and can be a little more consistent in his 2nd year in gang green. Leadership is important to the locker room, and he brings that trait. He is a positive vet.

    3) Calvin Pace OLB. Calvin Pace looked rejuvenated for us last year. He's coming off of a strong year for the Jets, and he's also a leader that can help in the locker room. I think he can put up similar numbers from what he had last year, Rex knows what to do.

    4) Nick Folk K. Idzik locked our kicker up and he well deserved it. Hopefully last year was no fluke, he made some clutch kicks and won us a couple of games.

    5) Jeff Cumberland TE. I still think he is a 2nd string TE at best, which is fine. Draft is going to be very very important I want a tight end that can be a 1st team TE down the stretch.

    6) Eric Decker WR. He isn't a 1st team WR on many other teams, but he is the best WR on our roster. We need to compliment him, we need to draft a top WR talent tomorrow.

    7) Michael Vick QB. If Geno craps the bed, Vick is a proven NFL starter when healthy. It was good insurance to a young inconsistent QB who is looking to make the next step this year.

    8) Dimitri Patterson CB. If healthy, this guy can be a stud. Rex will know how to use him and make him fit the defensive game plan.

    9) Jacoby Ford WR. This guy has insane speed, and I think MM will get him involved on some plays on the offense. KR specialist, he's a very good replacement for the aging and oft injured Cribbs.

    10) Chris Johnson RB. This was an extremely good signing by Idzik. A duo of Ivory and Johnson is going to be exciting to watch this year.


    Positions poorly addressed.

    Secondary. Some of you are high on Dee Milliner as this teams starting corner back. I am not, I am scared. He looked lost last year but picked his play up on the end. The last couple games or so he was consistent, unlike the benched rookie we saw the 1st couple of weeks. Injuries and awareness concerns me with Dee.

    Antonio Allen. He was hit or miss for me last year, he made some big plays but also got caught a couple of times. We could of used an upgrade here.

    Final Grade - B. We improved on offense, but there are some gaping holes in a secondary that already looked overwhelmed last year. Hopefully we can have a high node after the draft and I can feel more comfortable.

    Have to disagree with ya Kings about Antonio Allen. Lets see how he grows this year. He did a pretty good job covering TEs considering he is used to playing in the box (converted linebacker). If we could get a better cover safety and give Allen different duties, he may play even better.

    My grade is an A- for the free agency period. I actually thought we did a really good job of bringing in help on the cheap (outside of Decker, but even he's only 15 MM guaranteed). Keep in mind my grade doesn't just reflect the players that we signed, but also the strategy behind keeping our cap situation great and rolling over a good chunk for next offseason. DRC and Verner are way overpaid, Cro was banged up and is getting older and Revis was realistically never coming back to the Jets, that's how I look at it.

    Just curious, why do you look at it like Revis would never have come back to the Jets. It has always seemed to me that money is his biggest draw, and I feel like we could have paid the same or more, and guaranteed the same or more as the Pats and still had cap room

    I see it more of Woody never welcoming Revis back. He is a great player, but he is selfish and is a financial headache. He is Mevis.

    B+

    We improved the offense a great deal. This was a big upgrade and if we are able to maintain possession, our D will benefit.
    Had we signed one of the top Safeties or a great edge rusher, I would have given an A.

    Would have given it a B-, but that wasn't a choice, so I went with a C+. Like the Decker and Giacominiinancomo signings, especially when I saw the contract Austin Howard got. Not a fan of how we addressed the CB situation, and CJ2K is a nice signing, but I thought that RB was an area of strength going into the offseason, and I would have preferred to address weaker positions like safety and CB, OLB and TE...

    That being said, its hard to grade free agency on its own, because it goes hand-in-hand with what we do in the draft. If we snag a TE and CB in the firs three rounds, then the free agency approach makes more sense...

    This poll stands as living evidence that JET fans are idiots.

    How can you rank this offseason a C? ****ing morons.

    Way back in the stands, you can see my Wife holding my son on the ledge at his first Green and White scrimmage...circa 2013...aka "The Transformation" year into greatness! That's right Emryk...you saw the beginning stages of JETS Greatness first hand!

    Truly believe we had a B+ free agency period. Got the Best WR, probably the best RB, a backup QB that fits, resigned vets like Folk and Colon, and added a couple other pieces. Only reason I didn't give an A is because of not being able to bring in Schwartz or Asamoah.

    Potential look at Wharton after the draft? Maybe, maybe not.

    Speak for yourself please.

    The interior of our offensive line was neglected, we signed a declining RB, and we failed to adequately address the secondary. I gave this phase of the offseason a C+. I thought Vick, Decker, and Patterson were good moves. Everything else was meh.

    I said B+... I loved the Decker signing & think CJ2K will be back to his big-play ways in a platoon with Ivory. Also think Vick is a perfect fit in the back-up/mentor role. Giacomini is probably a lateral move at RT - but his nastiness hopefully will rub off on the rest of the OLine in the run game.

    Hoped to bring in a more proven player in the secondary - but I'm glad Idzik stuck to his plan and didn't overpay. I'm one who thinks the secondary will be serviceable at the very least and could be surprisingly good if Millinier, A. Allen, D. Walls, etc continue to grow. But just would have felt better with a more proven player in the mix. That said, IF Patterson can stay healthy - maybe we did get that guy after all.

    So I would have given an A, but honestly a bit worried about the experience in the secondary - but if Patterson can stay healthy - this FA class could be a huge.

    Calling you out YoungStuna!

    Regardless of where CJ is in his career, he is a major upgrade for us.
    Our Oline is no worse than last year, and in fact with a 1 year development is better. Look at 32 teams rosters, and you will see the bulk of lineman are mid-late round picks that have developed.

    And secondary - please...how many times are we going to beat this horse? WHO WOULDVE UPGRADED THIS TEAM WITHOUT HURTING IT?

    Not often I say this YS,but you my friend are living evidence of my original statement

    I hear that CJ dances behind the LOS and is overrated as a receiver. If that is true, he is no upgrade. He adds speed no doubt, but it remains to be seen if he is an upgrade.

    Our O-Line could easily be worse than last year. D'Brick and Mangold are getting older, Colon is old and injury prone, Winters was hot garbage last year, and Giacomini was likely a lateral move at best. Very little depth right now.

    For the secondary, I would have liked to see Chris Clemons here for coverage purposes. Patterson was a solid pickup, but our corners are still very suspect.
