Otah: Good talent- no work ethic- traded

Clausen: No talent- good work ethic- still here.....

Can I show up at camp? I work hard and, at 56, my talent level may be somewhat diminished.....

Some of You guys don't get this do you???

Think as if you're a JET fan for 2 seconds... You just traded a 6th or 7th round draft pick (peanuts)

For a former 1st Rndr (filet)

He has far greater Upside than a 6th or 7th rndr...

Potential to get that tough Jet love... And make a BIG difference right away

btw... He's only gonna make $1,076,250 this year (Cheap)

From our perspective as fans: we got rid of a lazy headache that CAN BE* elite at his position when motivated

From FO perspective: (they know him way better) they got something for him assuming that ge's done... If proven wrong, it could result in a black eye...

We shall see how it plays out, but u don't like that we didn't make the Jets give us at least a 4th minimum... Although a 3rd could have definitely been gotten. They're desperate for a RT and they just got one for peanuts...

We traded Jenkins to them and he was good for a year or two but we still got the best of the deal. It isn't whether Otah will be a pro-bowler there but would he be one here. And the answer was sadly, no. What he does there has nothing to do with what he would have been here.

Not even a year or two it was like 12 good games...and sidelines and locker room division the rest of the time...not sure why more dont applaude the timing of that trade.

Undisclosed picks are usually later round picks bro... We gave up a 1st to get him...

He wasn't an overall bust either as some of you have declared..

He was a big part of DeAngelo and J-Stew's dual 1,000 yd rushing season...

I think most likely this trade tells us that the coaching staff had already given up on Otah and decided to move on and we simply took what we could get. Something is better than nothing.

To be fair, I think it is safe to say that there likely isn't a big market out there for The Jimmy.

This Murphy guy just became a 1st round draft pick essentially then... I sure as hell hope that he can come in and pull a Victor Cruz/Miles Austin...

Knee jerk reaction for trades today:

WR---- sounds great

Otah--- got robbed by Jesus and Foot fetish

Add them together and you get.... Well we'll just have to wait and see how this pans out... For fugs sake though... Please work out in our favor!

Did you ever take an econ class? Do you understand the concept of a "sunk cost"? That's what that former 1st round pick we used on Otah is - a sunk cost. You can't factor in sunk costs on future decisions. It's just bad business.

Bell has about 20% of Otah's talent, but 500% more motor and "want to".
