We are a worse defense without Jamal Adams. I don't know how anyone can try and argue against that.

My solution would have been to pay him, because watching that $30M+ of cap space on the field today was no fun at all.

Still, jam tomorrow, eh?
I would have been fine keeping him and signing him before all the excrement went down. Granted, that also would send a message to the league - whine about your contract with the Jets, and you'll get a raise. We don't know how much money Jamal wanted.

But there's no guarantee that would made made everything better, especially once he demanded the trade.

Once he goes public with the trade demands, we don't know if he would have resigned. He demanded a trade. Those don't always get immediately resolved with a contract. Some do, some don't. If the place is as bad as you (and he) say it is, why would he resign?

Second of all, even if we did sign him, why would we expect him to all of a sudden fall in line? If we went 6-10 this year, he'd probably still try to force his way out in a trade in March. He tried to get to Dallas last year at the deadline. What would stop him from trying to get to Dallas next offseason?

I wanted to make it work with Jamal. But when you can get two 1st-round picks, a quality replacement, an upgraded mid-round pick, tons of extra cap space, and you alleviate your roster of a headache, I think you had to do it.

Who is arguing that?

The argument is that we're a 4-8 win team with Jamal and without Jamal, and the biggest reasons why are our deficiencies at some of the most important positions on the football field (OL, EDGE, WR, CB).

Adams definitely would have helped today, but Maye didn't miss much of a beat in Adams' role.

The whole team was excrement today, offense, defense and specials all the way to coaching. Dunno how much a disgruntled SS would've helped. Maye basically had a similar role and game as Adams had last year.

Re: disgruntled - I think he would have had the best year of his career.

Agree with everything else you said which brings to mind the question, why are we so much worse? What changed? Or, what stayed the same?

We sucked last year. We sucked today. I don't think we can judge how much better or worse we are than last year after one game.

Our defense was worse, our coach was worse, our QB was worse, our WRs are worse. Our OL is hopefully a bit better.

Today. Agree on the sample size

Agree with this.

Today's game was similar to last year's Cincinnati, first Miami or Jacksonville game. The team was just flat across all facets off the game.

He never should have been hired and he's been here longer than he deserves.

I posted this on Twitter yesterday, and I'm going to repeat it here.

I think Maye is a more overall talented safety than Adams. My only concern with him is that he's had trouble staying healthy.

That said, the Jets defense would be better with both Adams and Maye in the secondary.
Teams that draft well do so no matter where they pick. Teams that draft poorly do so no matter where they pick. I want my team to win games and draft well.

Now that is a hot take. I like Maye a lot, but let's slow down.

I'm just glad Maye is healthy and looks good, so there's not a gaping hole where Adams used to be. And we have two years to hope for Seattle's luck to turn bad and land us a higher #1.
So it turns out, Italian Seafood was right an everyone can go freak themselves.

Adams has more talent. Itís not even close.

Maye is still a good to great player. If he stays healthy he should be able to produce in the role Adams played last season.

Maye is probably a better player with the ball in the air, but I'll take Adams over him every day of the week.
