Sad News,

Older Jets will recall that Walt Michaels was as tough as teak and really should have had more success as a coach. Fondly remembered. RIP Walt

Walt Michaels did the best 4-5 year rebuilding job I've ever seen done here. Michaels created the Sack Exchange, most of that team. Todd was here in 76, Michaels drafted Walker, Klecko, Buttle and Powell in in 77, got Harper because his son knew him. In 78 Chris Ward, in 79 Lyons and Gastineau, in 80 Lam Jones, in 81 Freeman McNeil. I always felt if the Jets had kept him we'd have been better through the period of 83-86.  RIP.
So it turns out, Italian Seafood was right an everyone can go freak themselves.

hindsight's 20/20 and all but if only... (next guy picked after Lam Jones was Anthony Munoz).  R.I.P. Walt.

The guy picked before Freeman McNeil was Lawrence Taylor, imagine him behind the Sack Exchange.

Gut check for Italian Seafood, given that they are the same age.

I don't need the app everyone is using to make themselves look old, life did it for me.
