    We survived without Brandon Marshall, who in his prime was a better WR than DT. I think we would be fine without DT. Tomorrow we will watch a Super Bowl without a premier WR. Baldwin, Kearse, Edelman, LaFell, Amendola... Both teams have a group of receivers that work well together and their QBs distribute the ball. We don't need a premier WR, especially in today's NFL where the rules help the offense so much. Elway will probably find a way to keep DT, but his departure would not break the offense.

    We need to bring a different breed of players, one that is not afraid of going to New England. Coaching matters, but professional players should not depend on inspirational speeches to have a high level of confidence. I can understand John Fox wanting more say in personnel when our front office brings players that are not motivated for a playoff game and don't want to travel to enemy territory.

    If we stop signing soft players, we won't need coaching to make them tough.

    If we lose DT, I dunno..... he's not the perfect receiver. He has strengths but he also has weaknesses. It'd be a big loss but we could probably get tougher at that position with the right acquisition.

    Lol! We lose DT, it would take another 5-7 years before we found a WR that could match his production and attitude. Almost the same amount of time it took to find him after Rod Smith retired. Players like him don't appear every draft, or even every 2-3 drafts. And find me a WR that will play the way he played in the SB last year with a SEPARATED SHOULDERS, while still getting abused by the SEA defense, then I'll concede that it's worth the risk to let him go.

    I honestly don't understand this DT is soft nonsense. You people need to get over one game, that we had no chance of winning. And if we did have a chance, it sure wasn't lost because he dropped 2 bubble screens.

    One of the best in the game, shredding Franchise records, in the prime of his career, one average game, and ya'll want him gone.......... I hope u all get your wish.

    Eric Decker's first season in New York wasn't pretty, but that isn't stopping him from trying to improve things.

    The Jets wide receiver recently spent a few days in Arizona shooting a commercial for Courtyard by Marriott, and during the downtime between takes, gave his best sales pitch to former teammate Demaryius Thomas, an upcoming unrestricted free agent.

    "I've been pushing for the entire year now," Decker said in a telephone interview with The New York Post. "It was just another opportunity to talk to him about it. It's going to be interesting to see what happens.


    "I think it would be tough for Denver to let him go. So whether they franchise-tag him here in the next month or give him a long-term deal, he's just one of those premier players in this league. If he happens to make it to free agency, I would love to sign him because playing alongside him for four years and especially the last two years made it a lot of fun and made it a lot easier. He's just one of the great players in this league."

    When Decker says playing on the same field as Thomas made it a lot easier, he wasn't kidding. Decker had his best season as a pro when lining up with Thomas in 2013, hauling in 87 passes for 1,288 yards and 11 touchdowns as part of a record-setting Broncos offense. His output made him one of the hottest free agent targets, something the otherwise-frivolous Jets took advantage of when they signed him to a five-year, $36.25 million deal in March.

    Decker finished with 962 yards receiving and five touchdowns on 74 receptions, statistics all down from his last two seasons in Denver. While Thomas is likely to stay in the Mile-High City -- either via franchise tag or a new contract, as Decker said -- the Jets wideout decided he'd at least make a pitch to bring a former comrade to the East Coast in hopes of reviving a New York offense that finished in the league's bottom-third in total yards in 2014.

    With new GM Mike Maccagnan promising to be "very active in free agency," it couldn't hurt to try
    Stay the hell away from our WR Decker!
