  1. SHAME on Jet fans

    LOL. It's a 15 yard penalty for hurting your opponent's feelings, but piss of half the paying fans by kneeling during the Anthem and you have ownership and the NFL's 100% support.
  2. SHAME on Jet fans

    East Rutherford, NJ?
  3. Why do we need the first overall pick?

    Amen. If they end up picking a defensive player, I'll be pissed (unless he ends up being the second coming of Lawrence Taylor).
  4. Why do we need the first overall pick?

    If Darnold/Rosen are off the board when the Jets pick, I would really like to see the Jets pick Barkley in the first and get a QB in the second, or trade back into the first round to get a QB. I could live with a backfield of Barkley and Falk/Rudolph/etc...
  5. Scouting the qbs for next year thread

    Rosen was under pressure most of the game and his receivers dropped a lot of passes. It didn't help that the bruin D could not tackle or catch Stanford's little RB.
  6. Scouting the qbs for next year thread

    So you didn't see enough yesterday to make you realize Barkley is special?
  7. Scouting the qbs for next year thread

    If the bears are picking near the top, they'll take Barkley. They already have their QB.
  8. Scouting the qbs for next year thread

    Disagree as to Rosen. That kid wants to play on the biggest stage. I honestly think if he had his choice of the teams likely to have a top pick, he would select the Jets.
  9. Scouting the qbs for next year thread

    UCLA team is not worthy of a QB with Rosen's talent. No way he stays in school another year. Darnold could decide to stay in school because winning is fun and no matter which NFL team takes him, he's going to lose for awhile. I hope he wins the national championship because I really get the feeling that unless he does, he will seriously consider staying in school to try to win one next season.
  10. Frankly, ownership should consider next year as year 1 for Mac and Bowles. No excuses. Mac has money to fill holes and a top pick in a QB rich draft. Bowles has had time to develop his team culture, has some players with one to three years experience playing for him, and is no longer green behind the ears. If the team doesn't take a big step forward next season, both should be fired. BTW, just learned that in 2012 laveon bell tweeted he's a life long jet fan with #bleedgreenandwhite. Good timing for the Jets to have $85 million because he'll want a lot of it.
  11. Since I see no one who is a definite upgrade who would be available for either spot, I'd rather stand pat. Who knows, after 2018, it may be clear that Bowles should be fired and that Morton would be an excellent head coach. I may change this position by the end of the season if really good job candidates emerge, but right now any change would be a lateral move, not a definite upgrade.
  12. This is one reason I like Bowles. I think he is really trying to learn offensive football, so he can coach the whole team. Unfortunately, his effectiveness doing so is as yet unproven.
  13. Herm sucked at coaching, but he was a great cheerleader.
  14. Aaron Hernandez had severe CTE

    Not to long ago coal miners faced greater long term and daily risks for a lot less money, and most felt the risk was worth providing for their family. I'm not trying to diminish the significance of CTE, but it is now a known risk. And it does seem that a vast number of ex-players are not profoundly effected by it. I mean it seemed rare to find an ex-boxer who was not "punch drunk" (as they said in the day), but there seems to be plenty of ex NFL players commentating and such without showing significant effects from CTE. I'm not saying I think it is worth the risk, but I can understand why someone else would feel that way. I am also curious as to any connection between steroids and CTE because I don't recall any stories of ex player CTE type conduct until the players from the late 70s started to retire. I seem to recall more then one ex steeler lineman from that time having a terrible time with what was without doubt CTE, and I'm pretty sure those guys really roided it up in their playing days.
  15. Well that's weird. I think I'm one of the few people who like Todd Bowles.
  16. I'm not sure what you mean by Payton not looking like Bowles or Edwards, and I'm almost afraid to ask.
  17. But Bowles is a Parcells guy too! And, honestly Rex has not had a top 10 D since 2010.
  18. Payton with Gregg Williams as DC: 3 seasons; 37-11; 3 seasons with 11+ wins; 3 playoff berths; 1 superbowl win Paytone w/o Gregg Williams as DC: 7 seasons and 2 games; 57-48; 1 season with 11+ wins; 2 playoff berths; 0 superbowls At the conclusion of this season Payton will likely have posted his 4th consecutive losing season --- with the most accurate passer in the history of the NFL as his QB. If he can't win with Brees, why would he win with Darnold?
  19. Did Sean Payton win a Superbowl, or was that Gregg Williams doing?
  20. Oh wait.... I get it now. Posters don't "discuss" the Jets on this board, they "argue" about the Jets. Now it makes sense. Ok, I'm up to speed now, I think.
  21. LOL. You can just admit you do not have a good counter argument rather than make an outrageously silly assertion. No one was comparing Bowles to Bill Walsh. And anyone that thinks that Bowles is on the level of Rich Kotite is absolutely clueless. Kotite is on every list of worst coaches ever. My assessment of Bowles might be incorrect and he may very well legitimately be a bad coach, but by comparing him to Kotite, you lose any credibility you may have had.
  22. Nothing to do with the offense. You are a funny man. http://www.nj.com/jets/index.ssf/2017/03/jets_todd_bowles_says_hell_have_much_bigger_role_w.html ps. I apologize if I offended you by assuming your gender.
  23. Sorry. I misread the first line. But, to be fair, I dion't think I said every poster. I think I said "many" posters (at least that's what I meant). And, perhaps, it's not many, and rather just a vocal few who post a lot. Like I said, I'm new here. I'm not familiar with all of the posters. But, I stand by my view that their are lots of posts (maybe by just a few posters) that unfairly attack Mac and Bowles based on revisionist history, misinformation, conjecture, etc... just to make it fit their narrative. Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of fair criticisms, and they are warranted. 1. I'm trying to arrive at an opinion based on what I see. What assumption did I make? That it is Rogers D? Did I assume he is the DC? Did I assume he calls the D plays? I think we call those things facts. You are the one assuming that because Bowles used to be a DC, the Jets must be running his D. What evidence do you have? That the Jets run a 3-4? They ran one before Bowles and so do most teams. Please enlighten me as to my "assumptions". 2. Really, that is just stupid. Bowles was a top 2 HC candidate when hired, and I acknowledge that he may fail. So, he was a good hire at the time but only time will tell if in the end it was a good hire. 3. I'm really not sure what your point is here.
  24. You make some good points, but I still don't know what my agenda is? Are you conflating my opinion with the concept of an agenda?
