  1. is maneesh brain dead?

    I find it hilarious that Mo Wilk is parading around pretending to be a leader this year. The D-line doing wind sprints (if you can even call it that) on the sideline during the first pre-season game was a joke. In lieu of wind sprints, how about you show up to work and tackle the quarterback behind the line of scrimmage for a change.
  2. Abusing the reputation system

    The "ignore" option isn't enough for certain posters. Particularly ones who called DeWayne Robertson a "bowling ball with butcher knives;" or ones who stood on the table shouting that Vladimir Ducasse couldn't be a bust because his family was poor and Haitian; or ones who said "Calvin Pryor is possibly an all-time great pick...Rodney Harrison or Ronnie Lott are not completely unrealistic expectations." Admittedly, I'm not the one doing the neg-repping here, but I respect the commitment.
  3. Rodney Harrison was a 5th round pick. Bob Sanders was a 2nd round pick. Ronnie Lott was drafted 8th overall as a cornerback and moved to safety four years later. Ron Woodson was drafted 10th overall but played 10 years of CB before moving to safety. We're consistently drafting safeties with 1st round picks and QBs with 2nd round picks and we can't figure out why we're well on our way to 10 years in a row of not making the playoffs.
  4. I don't disagree with you, but Philip Rivers is the exception to the rule. For every Philip Rivers there's 10 Byron Leftwich's, Tim Tebow's, David Carr's, etc. If we're going to invest a top 3 pick into a QB, I'd prefer to not have to tear a guy down and rebuild him. With someone like Hackenberg, it's fine. We knew what we were getting; a second round pick who needed to be rebuilt. This is fine and dandy, except the Jets DIDN'T tear him and down and rebuild him in his redshirt rookie year. They waited until the off-season to do this, because, per the coaching staff, this wasn't possible to do in-season, despite the fact that there were three quarterbacks ahead of Hackenberg all year long. Why even redshirt the kid if you're not going to spend the time fixing what was wrong with him? This whole organization is a disaster.
  5. I'm in agreement. That wind-up of his reminds me of Blake Bortles. I'm not interested in drafting a QB who needs to be retaught how to throw a football in the NFL.
  6. Admittedly I didn't want Carr. However, I was standing on the table for Bridgewater. The only reason for not drafting Bridgewater is that our GM had committed resources to Geno...
  7. This team is 2 full drafts away from being non-embarrassing.
  8. This is the best QB class since 1999 (Akili Smith, Tim Couch, Cade McNown).
  9. Sam Darnold isn't anywhere near the prospect that Andrew Luck was.
  10. The only people who think that Sam Darnold is the best QB prospect in 15 years are you and Sam's mother.
  11. Ahhhhh right. He's not worth the sixth pick in the draft but he's worth two 1st's and a 3rd round pick. Makes sense. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  12. What are you talking about? Mahomes was drafted at 10. We passed on him at 6. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  13. The only QB I wanted in this draft was Mahomes. Whether it was at 6 or 10 doesn't matter. He was the only one I would have drafted. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  14. It's semantics. You draft a QB in the first two rounds and you're effectively going all-in on them. Idzik and Maccagnan have showed zero appetite to look at QBs outside of the ones they drafted early. Point being, if you're gonna waste a top 50 pick drafting a QB, you might as well draft one you're not going to be disgusted by after three weeks.
  15. I still don't understand why our two most recent GMs decided to risk their careers by going all-in on two highly-flawed QBs. If you're going to stake your name on a QB, go big or go home.
