  1. Scouting the qbs for next year thread

    Remember when posters told us over and over again Watson is no better than a 4th round talent in the 2018 draft?? Or when the same posters told us he can't be successful because he only throws it 49mph? Remember when Hackenchise Heads told us that we need to pass on Watson so we can see what we have in Hack first? It's this thinking by Macc that resulted in us passing on Watson and yet again missing an opportunity for a stud franchise QB. Congrats to the Texans, they have the offensive ROY and something special for the next 10-15 yrs. Could have been ours if Macc was better at his job. Throw in Dalvin Cook and we could have the top two ROY vote getters. And, no, this is not hindsight as I predicted Watson-Cook finishing 1-2 in offensive ROY before the season started. Many others did as well.
  2. Scouting the qbs for next year thread

    So does Deshaun Watson carving up the defending super bowl champs on the road make him a worthwhile prospect yet, or are we still more impressed with Darnold's success against Cal's vaunted front 7?
  3. Terrance Brooks- Defensive Player of the Week

    Good thing we drafted safeties with our first 2 picks last draft. I mean it's not like we can aquire a journeyman in trade and get comparable or better production.
  4. Scouting the qbs for next year thread

    Calm down, pal. You seem mad for some reason. No I'm not stupid. Darnold has 7 picks already this year which is not good. And yes many have come on poor decisions, poor throws, or both. Rosen has been better with only 4 picks, which is pretty good considering the amount of attempts he has. The narrative was always these guys are superior prospects to the '17 class. They're not. And, yes, I know this only because I do watch so much cfb and don't rely on the stats.
  5. Scouting the qbs for next year thread

    Lol at the hypocrisy. Darnold is throwing INTs all over the place, and so is Rosen. And many of the decisons are awful. But now we're giving style points for competing against tough teams. Hell, we're even citing the mighty cal bears defense (ha!) who is historically one of the worst in in the power 5. But when posters pointed out that Watson tore up the best D in cfb 2 years in a row, willing his team to victory and a national championship in the process, that was quickly dismissed. Look, I like Darnold but the evidence that these guys are any better than last year's top prospects is absent.
  6. Scouting the qbs for next year thread

    Boy oh boy, the shine of the '18 qb class isn't nearly as shiny anymore. Fanboys tried to tell us how Trubisky and Watson and Mahomes and Kizer weren't suitable to hold these guys' jocks. Those of us who are smarter said this isn't the case and if we have a chance to grab a top qb THIS YEAR we should do it. Never make the mistake of 'wait til next year' because things change too quickly.
  7. Pre-preseason predictions

    JetNut, just curious....where are you now? Still a "fantasy list"?? Also, Is being a SOJF synonymous with being objective and correct? Or was it just too tempting for you to pass up throwing personal insults at a fellow Jets fan for giving good, accurate analysis?
  8. 3 and 2

    Weren't you one of the guys getting ornery with me (and others) when implying Hack was a dud?
  9. 3 and 2

    People don't fully understand just how bad this Jets team is. Like historic bad.
  10. Pre-preseason predictions

    Just thought I'd check on my predictions from way back in July. So far it looks like: 1) (mostly right) Both guys starting for their respective teams which is impressive. Cook will be a star and almost definitely in the running for ROY. Watson needs to step up a bit but he will have every opportunity. 2) (somewhat right) Adams is a good leader and a good player but not a great decision at #6 considering the value and circumstances of being able to trade back. 3) (100% right) Safety-safety strategy will be mocked for years to come. 4) (somewhat right) We are not good enough on D to win 4-6 games. The Hack stuff is 100% spot on. He's terrible and most of us knew this way back when. 5) (right) Forte is washed up and our ground game isnt good. We should have addressed RB with Cook or one of the others. 6) (mostly right) OL is decent but not great. LBs are avg but not complete disaster. Still need upgrades at both spots. 7) (somewhat right) WRs are jags. Hansen does not appear to be emerging so far. We'll see as year goes on. 8) (100% right) Nailed this one even though it was an unpopular take at the time. 9) (butt fumble ) Wilk is a lazy bum that will be let go soon.
  11. I don't want to say it but

    Oh man, I honestly wished I lived in your world of blissful and ignorant optimism. Our team is terrible. One of the worst in recent memory. If we win, it's because the turnover God's are hugely in our favor that day. Wouldn't count on it though.
  12. I don't want to say it but

    Lol at these kinds of posts. Kind of reminds me of the folks stating we would be 4-1 going into new england before the season. Or the folks predicting a huge year from Hackenchize. We suck. Barring a crazy series of events, miami rolls us.
  13. Is this an actual rebuild?

    But back to the actual topic...the fans who defend Macc and talk about this amazing rebuild, it's a farce. This is someone sucking at their job really bad and an organization spinning their wheels at the bottom of the league. We're years away from being competitive, like minimum 3 years, but probably more like 5. People rationalize Macc by pointing to below avg talent acquisitions like Anderson, Shell and Burris, like it's some sort of feather in his cap. These guys are no-names that will be out of the league in 3 years, not tent poles for the incredible "rebuild". Our only hope is cleaning house and bringing in some ppl who know what the hell they're doing.
  14. Is this an actual rebuild?

    Lionel Richie gets it. It still disgusts me that Macc passed on an opportunity to trade back and aquire major draft capital last april when "the phone was ringing off the hook" for slot 6. If you didn't like one of the QBs so be it, but staying put at 6 and draft an effing strong safety, who is good but not great, is unforgivable. Macc sold us on him being a generational talent; he is not. If it were me, I would have drafted Watson/Mahomes at 6 and then Dalvin Cook in rd 2. This year I would have a hard time deciding between home run WR threat James Washington and Derwin James (who may be the best defensive prospect since Clowney). But what do I know, I'm just a SOJF.
  15. Bryce Petty: This is my second chance

    To be clear, I did NOT call him Steve Young nor did anyone else. As a matter of fact I don't think Petty will ever be a top level starting qb in this league. My point is twofold: 1) saying "you are what you are at 26" is inaccurate. I gave 3 high profile examples but I could give dozens more if needed. 2) This year, ON THIS ROSTER, clearly Petty is our best option and it's the pinnacle of stupidity that he's sitting behind a 38 year old "nice guy" and a qb who's a trainwreck every time he takes the field.
