HA HA its a crap shoot and the jets have to take a chance on picking a QB, 10/1 thats the odds of a drafted QB making it in the nfl. I love how disfuntional the jets have been over last 40 yrs and they will suck this yr unless a starting QB falls out of the sky like Penn did for us.Thanks again jets for cutting your best player and laying him in our laps last yr for a has been wants was. I will rub that fact in all you NY fans face for the next yr or so. I am not sold on ether Stafford or Sanchez, Stafford is already acting like a crybaby because the 49ers asked about his parents divorse, they do not want to waste there 1st rd pick and $$ on a guy that has family problems and head is nopt in the game. Sanchez has played one yr of college ball and now is jumping up to the nfl(scary). I like Freeman he has all the throws all the phyical skills and he has started alot of college games. The experts think different than me(they get paid big bucks I do not so they win) but I would be very worried about those facts. I would do what miami did last yr if I were the lions. pick a safe pick that will start right away and be a probowl player like JLong was for miami. If they pick Stafford and he does not pan out there franchise will be set back another yr and if they do pick Stafford who is going to block his blind side. I would take the best OT in the draft and get Freeman with there other 1st rd pick.
