Matt Forte to the Jets? A blogger from sports.gather.com thinks it would be a good idea. Take a look at this post, and I will comment on the other side:
I will never disparage another blogger, as they are all entitled to an opinion. This one, with all due respect to the author, does not seem realistic. Agreed, Matt Forte would be an asset to the New York Jets. But anyone who watches the Jets full time as we do, knows that our offensive line is not a strength any longer, as it was from 2009-2010.
If we were to trade one of the pieces that the blogger mentions, such as Nick Mangold, the Jets line would be in shambles. Forte wouldn’t put numbers up that he is anywhere near used to.
Sorry, Erik Lambert, don’t see that one happening.
