Jets Info

  • What is your favorite Jets related memory?
    I was sitting in front of Willy Joe at the Meadowlands when he said to Suzy Kolber " I want to Kiss You". I'm sorry, I know the moral majority was outraged but that was the funniest thing ever. We all want to say something and not give a damn, Joe did. Drunk or not , I said that's pretty damn cool.
  • Do you have season tickets?
    On the waiting List, when I broke up with my girlfriend 7 years ago, the tickets were her family's.

  • Where you alive for Super Bowl III?
    In diapers, ****ting myself and excited
  1. There really is no winning this aurgument from either side here. Yes, you don't want to encourage a culture of loosing agreed but can we agree that for most of us who can't possibly remember Super Bowl 111 the Jets have fought the good fight and lost for almost 50 years? You tell me that nearly half of the league's teams have not won a super Bowl whilt the Jets have, in fact, won one. Is that a consolation to Jets fans ? Call me greedy but I think not. "You play to win the game!" ??? I totally get wanting to win every game and that luck plays a bigger park in any of this (ask every qb who has been injured in 2017) than we care to admit. However what I see is that the longer terms goals of Jets fans are in direct odds with the short term interests of Bowles and McCagnan. Mccagnan's obvious talent/ability to trade or unearth important role players prevents this team from being a two win team. Bowles and Mccagnan need to win as many games , be it three games or eight games in order to ensure their job prospects down the road. Even if their jobs are quaisi promised for another year, so was Eric Mangini's. Winning this season has little to do with a Super Bowl it is everything to do with future employment prospects. Of course this is not just the Jets coach and management, it is 95% of NFL coaches and managers whose name is not Belichick. Where does that leave us fans ? We can smile at all the talking heads who guessed we might not win one game this year. But don't you want to look at every possible approach to a Super Bowl win, even if 1. No fresh approach is guaranteed a super bowl win and 2. Watching the Jets loose football games with a long term strategy that is not guaranteed to change the forture of the franchise... is painful ?
  2. Game Observations (CLE)

    Thanks for the great game breakdown KRL, my only aurgument would me the quality of those Jets wins...Miami beat Tennessee with Matt Cassel at the helm, Cutler was abysmal...12 of 26 with one TD and one interception. Yes Jacksonville did beat the Steelers but that is despite Bortles having just 8 completions in the whole game. Big Ben threw 5 interceptions.
  3. Jacksonville is not a win

    The fact that the Jags got off to an early lead meant the Ravens were stuck playing catch up. I don't expect to see that lopsided a score line next week. No doubt having Couglin in the background and Marrone on the sideline gives them stability. Marrone back coaching against the Jets, will be interesting.
  4. We better effing lose every game

    no worries, thanks PK.
  5. We better effing lose every game

    The little man comment I can do without, this is a conversation about football, not my height. Dalvin Cook was examined with a microscope at drafting, there was a sizeable amount of people who felt that Cook's trouble giving his increadibly poor background and rough environment... was behind him. I would would not bet the house on McCagnan picking Darnold, he could easily trade down one or two picks to get extra draft picks.
  6. We better effing lose every game

    I get it...he's a scout but McCagnan drafting Hackenberg in the second round considering what his game tape his last two years of his college career looked like crap seemed to me to border on madness. Thinking that you can coach the kid up...fine but pick him in the 4th or later His decision this year skipping on Dalvin Cook to draft a second safety in the second round... I don't trust his judgement, he makes very strange decisions
  7. We better effing lose every game

    My biggest nightmare is that McCagnan is in a position to draft Darnold or Rosen and he decides to go all Hackenberg on us - draft DL or defensive back and use the second round to pick one of the other 'talented' qb's that no one else appreciates other than his great football mind.
  8. Scouting the qbs for next year thread

    Yup... the expectations for Darnold are high, he has so much media attention on him...he's got to feel the weight of that.
  9. BY: Jason McIntyre Sam Darnold is the best QB in college football. If he comes out, he will be the #1 pick in the draft. People will try to debate you on it, but don’t bite. It’ll be Sam Darnold. The only question is who will draft 1st. We’ll analyze the leaders each week: NY Jets 0-2. Have the worst offensive skill position players in the NFL. The Bears are down there, but they have injuries and a good running back; the Browns are down there, but Isaiah Crowell or Duke Johnson would be the best player on the Jets offense. An 0-16 season in New York is seriously in play. They might give the Dolphins some fight for three quarters this week, though. 49ers 0-3. Difficult team to get a read on after three games, but this much I feel confident in saying: No shot at .500, and six wins could be a stretch. The front seven has been a letdown so far, and they’re already 0-2 in perhaps the weakest division in the NFL. Chicago 0-2. The Bears schedule is brutal: Pittsburgh, Green Bay, Minnesota, Baltimore and Carolina are next. So they’ll probably be 0-7 before we see 1st round pick Mitch Trubisky. The defense is solid, and I can possibly see wins over the Saints, Lions, 49ers, Bengals and Browns. The Bears are invested in Trubisky, but Darnold has much more upside. Unless you want to trade the #1 pick for a massive haul … Saints 0-2. With Drew Brees and Sean Payton, there’s just no way they can finish with a top five pick … right? The recent September woes have not carried over, and the Saints have finished 7-9 three years in a row. Just for fun: They’re 1-6 and a QB of a playoff team goes down. Could the Saints decide to tank and trade Brees and fire Payton? Browns 0-2. Covered at home against the Steelers, and played the Ravens tough on the road and moved the ball well, but were done in by five turnovers. Deshone Kizer has been impressive at QB, and the defense hasn’t even had #1 pick Myles Garrett yet. Feels like maybe a 5-win team. Chargers 0-2. Sneaky fear of mine – Philip Rivers goes down, and the Chargers make a run at 1-15. But the defense is probably too good for that bad a season.
  10. ESPN: Jets have best odds at landing the No. 1 pick in 2018 (Article Credit; Jets Wire http://jetswire.usatoday.com/2017/09/21/espn-jets-have-best-odds-at-landing-the-no-1-pick-in-2018/ ) ESPN’s Football Power Index calculated which NFL teams had the best chance to get the first overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. A handful of the league’s 0-2 teams were close, but the Jets have the best odds by far right now. At 40 percent, the Jets have the best chance for the time being to get the first overall pick in next year’s draft. They are followed by the 49ers (19 percent) and Colts (11 percent). The Browns and Bears are tied at 9 percent. Despite having much higher of a chance than everyone else, it is still more likely than not that the Jets will not get the first overall pick, according to these numbers. That scenario would make all of the suffering the Jets are going through now just about meaningless. That said, it’s a long season. Besides, with such a deep class of quarterbacks, the Jets would be just as happy with the second or third pick. We don’t know if Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen or any of the other top quarterbacks are the answer. That is the nature of the draft. Yet one of them looks destined to wear green and white. With three winnable games coming up against the Dolphins, Jaguars and Browns, we’ll have to check back in on the odds in a few weeks.
  11. 3 and 2

    What nobody seems to have drawn attention to is for all the help Jermaine Kearse gives to the passing game, we have obviously lost something on the defensive line with trading Sheldon Richardson away. Our vaulted run defense suffered first with the Snacks defection a year ago and now with Richardson's exit. Wilkinson remains invisible and Leonard Williams looks mortal. The Jets will score this season because we have an okay O line, we have 1 & 1/2 functional recievers, a TE and a much traveled QB who can still throw the ball. On the other side of the ball we have two promising safeties, one functional if fragile corner back but ineffective linebackers and no nose tackle. We will get a few wins if the O line stays healthy but teams will score on the Jets unless there is some magical transformation or animal sacrifice at Florham Park. The repeated whiffs on draft day have left enough holes to ensure that we will be top five in the draft if not top three.
  12. I don't want to say it but

    All Jets fans have skin in the game this year. Some are hoping for a win this Sunday and every Sunday; the rest hoping for the first pick in the draft and way out of this endless nightmare.
  13. I don't want to say it but

    Your are right, ASJ returns this weekend, Kearse showing promise etc. Until the muffed punt, for much of first half against the Raiders, the Jets looked legitimate (okay, passable). However you undersell the Dolphins. Cutler played well last week, his history with Gase etc.. Ajaji looked good running behind Tunsil... the other moving parts of the Dolphins ...Suh , Landry if healthy, Parker are legitimate threats. Wake will eventually show up. The Dolphins scraping by LA does not say much...Chargers are a bad football team, I'll grant you that, but I imagine it to be a dogfight Sunday, with Cutler's jersey kept very clean.
  14. I doubt the first or second pick in the draft will be traded unless Rosen or Darnold go into a dive this season. We all agree, the 49'ers, the Jags, the Jets, the Bills are not trading out. Here are five more teams that will likely not trade out.... The Browns have too many extra draft picks...I expect them still to draft a QB if in the top two spots, I don't see Kizer's play convincing them that he is the guy. The Bengals will not trade out, given that Andy Dalton continues to take heat... I don't see them going all in on AJ McCarron. Arizona; Ariens has not stopped talking about how they need a future qb, Carson Palmer's stock is plummeting. The Colt's ; given Luck's injuries, do you really think they will turn down another golden goose QB opportunity? The Saints; if it happens, that somehow they plummet, they are not turning down an opportunity to draft Drew Brees's replacement. There are other surprise candidates to suck, eg the Giants or the Chargers that if somehow they ended up there I don't see them trading out.
  15. For those who are interested, here's the PFF breakdown... Refocused: Oakland Raiders 45, New York Jets 20 BY PFF ANALYSIS TEAM • SEP 18, 2017 17 season OAKLAND, CA - SEPTEMBER 17: Karl Joseph #42 of the Oakland Raiders celebrates after sacking the quarterback and recovering a fumble against the New York Jets during the fourth quarter of their NFL football game at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum on September 17, 2017 in Oakland, California. The Raiders won the game 45-20. (Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images) The Raiders opened the scoring with a QB Derek Carr touchdown pass to WR Michael Crabtree, and the pair would score a second touchdown in the second quarter, along with a RB Marshawn Lynch rushing touchdown. The Jets would score a WR Jermaine Kearse touchdown catch and a field goal, but they’d trail by 11 at halftime. Not much would change in the second half, besides the size of the Oakland lead. The Raiders would go on to win 45-20. With that, we give you our PFF exclusive takeaways from the contest for each team. TOP 5 GRADES: S Karl Joseph, 91.1 overall grade G Kelechi Osemele, 89.2 overall grade WR Michael Crabtree, 87.3 overall grade C Rodney Hudson, 84.8 overall grade QB Derek Carr, 84.4 overall grade PERFORMANCES OF NOTE: G KELECHI OSEMELE, 89.2 OVERALL GRADE Through different means the Raiders have invested heavily in their offensive line and the Jets have invested heavily in their defensive line. Led by Osemele, it was the vaunted Raiders’ offensive line that comfortably got the better of this matchup. Osemele left his mark on the likes of Leonard Williams and Darron Lee throughout the game, driving defenders off the ball and generally making linebackers’ lives a misery. Osemele provided a key block on Cordarelle Patterson’s touchdown run, driving Darron Lee out of the A-gap to open a clear path to the endzone for the Raiders’ new gadget receiver. WR MICHAEL CRABTREE, 87.3 OVERALL GRADE Through two weeks Michael Crabtree has failed to catch only a solitary passthrown his way. For the season he sits at 12/13 for 163 yards with all three of his touchdowns coming today against the Jets, with two against Juston Burris. Whether on a fade into the endzone or a go route adjustment that Crabtree moved for before the corner could even see it, the Jets couldn’t hold Crabtree in check today and it seemed that the only thing limiting Crabtree’s stat line today was the number of times the Raiders felt the need to put the ball in the air. LB NICHOLAS MORROW, 84.1 OVERALL GRADE You’d be forgiven for wondering who Morrow is. The undrafted free agent was a long shot to make the team after being picked up from Greensville College, but after a strong finish to preseason he’s found a role on the team and after playing four snaps in the opener, managed 24 this week. How did he do? Well the grade is a spoiler, but he acquitted himself exceptionally well, especially in coverage, where he broke up one pass and then scored a tackle for a loss on a catch. Have the Raiders unearthed a situational superstar? Time will tell. EDGE KHALIL MACK, 79.7 OVERALL GRADE You expected Mack to feast in this game, but it didn’t really work out that way. He did pick up a sack and did win his share of pass-rushing duels, but the dominance that was his Week 1 effort was not on display with the Jets doing a good job of taming him, especially in the first half. He ended the day with a sack and two hurries on 44 snaps. TOP 5 GRADES: G James Carpenter, 83.4 overall grade S Jamal Adams, 83.0 overall grade S Marcus Maye, 81.4 overall grade T Kelvin Beachum, 79.0 overall grade WR Jermaine Kearse, 75.0 overall grade PERFORMANCES OF NOTE: QB JOSH MCCOWN, 70.4 OVERALL GRADE When McCown connected deep with Jermaine Kearse, you thought an upset may be on the cards. But not for long. McCown didn’t play badly and extended a couple of drives with his legs and some accurate passing. But it was not, nor was it ever going to be enough for a team who are not doing anything to dispel offseason fears of struggling all year. He completed just three passes longer than 10 yards in the air all day, and was sacked on three of the 13 occasions the Raiders blitzed. They’ll come a time when his backups need to get on the field, but this effort shouldn’t force the chatter this week. WR JERMAINE KEARSE, 75.0 OVERALL GRADE Unloved in Seattle, but with the lack of talent at wideout Kearse suddenly finds himself a No. 1 receiver in a team playing catch up a lot. With five targets he led the team, including a 35 yard grab behind David Amerson that went for six. You can only imagine as the season goes on he’ll be involved even more. S JAMAL ADAMS, 83.0 OVERALL GRADE, S MARCUS MAYE, 81.4 OVERALL GRADE There isn’t much to cheer for Jets fans right now but their young safety duo are off to a bright start, and even playing behind a defensive front that was overpowered by the opposing offensive line couldn’t hide that. Both Adams and Maye came up to make stops against run and pass with Maye leading the way with 3 stops after Adams picked up a pair a week ago. Both made their best plays working downhill towards runs and short passes but in what looks likely to be a dark season, Adams and Maye offer a spark of optimism for the future. DI LEONARD WILLIAMS, 38.7 OVERALL GRADE After a strong start to the season against the Bills last week with three stops and three pressures, Williams was shut down and moved around by the Raiders’ powerful offensive line in Week 2. Williams was held without a stop for only the fourth time in his short career, coming up with comfortably his lowest overall and run defense grades of his career to date.
