  1. You know what? This team is going to come out every week and compete. I can feel it. I LOVE the new coaches that are here as they seem as dedicated as ever and they seem like legitimate teachers who are going to teach this young team how to prepare and how to win. If nothing else this team has nothing to lose this upcoming season and those teams with nothing to lose can be quite scary. If this defense can somehow be a top 7 defense I think this team will shock people with how many games they can win. The offense is definitely going to take their lumps throughout the season but there is some young untapped talent here that's ready to showcase what they can do. Color me excited.
  2. Same here they're always surrounded by drama it's really unfortunate. I for one am fine with the kid and I'll give him the time he deserves to learn the NFL game and hopefully continue to progress. Some take longer to adjust to the speed of the NFL game. It just sucks that in NY these poor kids, especially QBs, have to be NFL ready and ready to start as soon as they get drafted. I'm okay with the rebuild it has to be done. If we crap the bed this season which is most likely going to be the case then fine draft one of these QBs and go into 2018-19 season with Darnold or Rosen with Hackenberg and QB3 as backups and see what happens.
  3. You don't potential ruin a young kid's future before it even begins for clicks. Gotta have some sort of morals at some point.
  4. Wow I could not have said that better myself. I never disliked Kimberly Jones but now I'm a fan of hers for calling out all these loser reporters who jump and exaggerate on anything they can. The poor kid has done nothing wrong and consistently gets sh*tted on. The kid is 22 years old give him a break. He didn't ask to get picked in the 2nd round. Saddest part of all of this is if he was picked in the 5th round no one would be saying a thing about him. Let him learn.
  5. If ASJ can become somewhat of a weapon with his size and talent and Leggett can turn into at least a suitable passing option in Morton's offense it'll be great for Hackenberg. Imagine an offense that includes Enunwa, Decker, Stewart, Anderson, Power, Forte and these two TE's. You'd have passing options all over the field that's mixed with speed and RAC ability. Could be a fun offense to watch. Not to mention the offensive line isn't too shabby either. Here's to high hopes..
  6. Why are people still believing everything they hear?? This news couldn't be farther from the truth. Trust me if there was a trade in place between the Cowboys and the Jets for a straight Sheldon Richardson for their 2nd round pick in THIS draft trust me that they make that trade all day. There's no way I'm buying this news at all.
  7. Sucks that Devon got hurt again I really thought he would contribute this coming season. With him out though these receivers on the roster don't lack in talent. I'm hoping Morton makes Enunwa our starting full time TE. I mean he has the same measurements as Evan Engram who went in the 1st round and he can block. With that change the starting WR/TE units can look like this.. WR#1: Decker WR#2: R. Anderson Slot: A. Stewart WR#4: Hansen WR#5: Peake WR#6: Patton/J. Marshall TE#1: Enunwa TE#2: ASJ TE#3: Leggett I love that with Powell and Forte coming out of the backfield also
  8. I don't get people. I'm convinced no matter what someone will find something to complain about. If only we had every pick the draft. People will still whine.
  9. This. Come on guys. I know based off of the history that is the Jets franchise we have every reason to give up on Hackenberg before he even takes his first NFL snap but come on. Doesn't the fact that we didn't draft a QB at all mean that maybe Hackenberg isn't this quarterback who can't throw a ball in the ocean?? Maybe he actually looks the part of an actual NFL quarterback. Maybe he progressed and improved and John Morton sees something in this kid. Enough something to feel okay with going into the season with McCown, Petty, and Hackenberg. Yes there are still holes. We aren't going to fill every single hole through one draft. It doesn't work that way. We'll fill the holes we have based on how the draft goes. I love what we did. We're a rebuilding team that drafted high character guys who love the game of football. That's a huge x factor. What happens if Stewart and Hansen and Leggett actually turn out and start clicking with Hackenberg? After watching years upon years of the Jets and being an absolute die hard fan I'm sadly wired in a way where it's impossible for this team to do any good or show any sort of upside but what if?? I'd love if Hansen and Anderson turned out to be our outside receivers with Adarius Stewart in the slot. I'd love if Morton's idea was to utilize Enunwa as a TE who can catch and block. I'd love Leggett to carry over his play making ability at the TE position along with ASJ and actually give us an option at the TE position. I'd love for Morton to realize that Powell is an actual legit RB and make him our starting RB. If these young guys turn out our offense can look a lot different and actually kind of dangerous. It'll all rely on the progress of Hackenberg and Petty but I have hope because that's all I have. Hackenberg showed an above average ability to go to the line of scrimmage and read a defense in college where very few showcased that ability. I'm hoping that in year 2 he capitalizes on that ability while improving his foot mechanics and actually becomes decent. The defense is stout. I love the additions of two top rookie safeties in a league where offenses roll out 3 WRs what? 70% of the time? I for one would not mind two thumpers roaming back there ready to take someones head off. The defense will set the tone for this team and we have a young offense who will hopefully only improve as they go against this defense in practice every day...
  10. I think the hidden win of this draft so far is that they didn't draft a QB which means to me that they see something in Hackenberg. He fixed something or he's done something to where they see that he can be the one. The Stewart pick was a good one I can definitely see Enunwa and Robbie on the outside with Stewart in the slot. I love the way this kid plays and I love what this team is doing. I'm hoping they grab Jake Butt today at some point along with Jamaal Williams and the offense will be an improved one. The defense like you said Max will be top 5-7. I'm completely on that ship.
  11. No that's actually no true at all. Filter out the nonsense
  12. While Mac may not like the character issues we know that he's all about the Best Player Available strategy and if Cook is there in the 2nd when we pick he will most likely be BPA for a side of the ball that can desperately use his speed, vision, and overall talent. Playmaker.
  13. I think Engram is going to be the real deal. Especially being on the Giants who already have tons of weapons. Exceptional hands and route runner. He's going to flourish there.
  14. Year 2 will bring good things. Now he'll be able to utilize the speed part of his skill set and I think he's really going to blossom. The first year is normally a confusing year where players like him normally don't know what they're doing. Now that he has some experience I think he'll be all over the field. He had 70 tackles in his rookie year which is really good. I think he gets over 100 this season.
  15. I like the fact that we have multiple guys who can cover pass-catching TEs and RBs now
