A very odd dynamic has developed, and I would love some opinions on it:
Thursdays picks have been pretty well received from what I have been watching and reading on NFL network and ESPN, especially when classic bashers like Bill POlian and Mike Francessa have been pretty positive on pout 2 first round picks. But it seems like this site has been very down on both of the first round picks.
Now I look at the 2nd round pick, and this is where I found it very interesting. Both NFL network and ESPN were very quick to bash the Jets
on this pick, openly questioning whether the Jets have any plan, and Mel Kiper wrote an article saying the Jets pick was very odd and didnt make much sense, although this is the same guy that was telling us the Jets needed to draft Ryan Nassib with our 9th overall pick, which is another story altogether. Now I look at this site and the articles have been very positive on Geno Smith
, especially at the value we got for him in the Mid-2nd round area.
I find this facinating how this site, which is far and far the best and most information on the Jets in any site i have seen, has gone so against the grain on the "experts" in the general media. I have to beleive that sinse this site is for and run by Jet faNS WHO WATCH THE Jets closely, I must admit I am a bit perplexed. While it seems like the Jets got great value for a guy who 2 months ago people were saying would be the first overall pick, it just seems like everyone else not on this site has been very critical on Geno Smith.
Please as many responses as possible, I find this very interesting and would like as much feeback as possible. Thanks
