  1. Oh my! You don't know about the JiF, Crusher, T0m thingee........................................Nevermind
  2. Your probably right. Myles Garrett, at this point, is widely regarded as the best. Could even go #1 There are several others who might be available in the early 2nd. Jets are needy in several positions. IMO there will be a very good player available,at 5. if that's where they pick. I'm thinking Peppers. If not Mike Williams, Fournette. There will be a good player there at a need position
  3. Edge rusher, along with DB, are probably the deepest positions in this draft. Both are positions of need for the Jets. Your right with QB, and LT's though.
  4. Can't say I agree with Sar on a lot of things, but this laundry list is pretty damming. May not agree with all the points, but they are all at least arguable. I've really done a 180 on this over the last few weeks, not quite ready to drop the trap door on Bowles right now, but he must have an impact on the team over the last month to keep his job if I were in charge.
  5. First I think Woody needs to step back and completely turn the football aspect of the team over to Macc in a traditional GM relationship to a team. In other words Bowles fate should be in Macc's hands. Bowles fate should depend, not so much on W's and L's over the last 4 games, (the team stinks) but rather on if he can get the locker room back under control, and get the players to understand he is in charge, not them, and no matter who they are, they are playing for their jobs. Second I think the team needs to be ripped down the way it should have been in year one. Yes, that means that Macc gets 3 more years as GM. Bowles is on the hot seat right now.
  6. Again your correct. Andrerson was also, as a back up, the only WR he had any reps with. Anderson, with his big speed also plays to Petty's strong suit. He can throw an excellent deep ball, and give his WR a Chance to catch it. Real change for the Jets. All I'm saying Dr. is lets see what the kid can do over the next month.
  7. Good Dr, we agree on this. Pre-season is pre-season. The point I am trying to make is, coming in , your correct, he had a 10 cent NFL brain. That's why he fell from a lock 1st rounder after his junior year, to a 4th rounder at the draft a year later. He has made good improvement in the year and a half he's been here. That tells me at least he can learn. As a 4th round draft pick he has a limited window to strut his stuff. He has excellent physical skills. Lets see if he has developed enough to, under real NFL conditions, secure a roster spot next year, and be in the conversation as the starter. If your depending on NFL statistics to show that he has a small chance to be an elite NFL QB because he's a 4th rounder, your again correct. I'd prefer to see how he plays over the next 4 games before I bury him. Kids got excellent physical tools
  8. That's who he was when he came out of Baylor. He has shown improvement both of the pre-seasons. We'll find out where he is over the next month. This may be his only chance to show he belongs in the NFL. Myself, I think the kid has a lot of natural talent. it would be great for the Jets and Fans if he shows that he has learned something in the last year and a half. iIf he's still only got a 10 cent brain, so be it. Move onto the next guy. I have a feeling he's going to surprise.
  9. Your right on Petty's pocket presence. One of the things he definitely needs to work on. IMO there's no question Petty has excellent arm strength. Just in this last game He showed a very BIG arm. I just quickly rewatched the Jet O plays in the 2nd half. On the first drop by Anderson the ball was thrown from the 16 Yard line. Anderson dropped it at the Colts 36. That's 48 yards in the air, right on the money. Great throw. On the first overthrow, Ball was thrown at the Jets 29, fell a couple of yard in front of Anderson at the Colts 25. That's 46 yards in the air. Ball was on line, just a bit long On the second over throw Ball was thrown from the Colts 47 went over Anderson's head at the 6 . That's 41 yards in the air, again the ball was on line, but again it was a couple of yards long. On the TD Ball was thrown from the 48, and caught at the 4. 44 Yards in the air. Great throw. In between, Anderson dropped 3 balls, and Powell dropped 2.. One of the things I liked about the way Petty throws those balls is there is no big wind up. He just kind of whips them out. We haven't seen that kind of thing in a very long time. Petty has his work cut out for him. As you pointed out has to work on his pocket presence, way he reads D's. On the first pick I don't think he ever saw the guy who picked him. He also has to get rid of the ball faster. Takes to many sacks. I'm really hoping this kid can perform over the next month, it would be nice to have a QB who can throw it up field, and give the WR some chance to make a play on it
  10. Pennington: Perfect Opportunity for Petty Posted 43 minutes ago Former Jets QB Wants to See Petty Take Command of the Offense Chad Pennington is excited to see how Bryce Petty handles his audition. The former Jets QB believes the second-year passer can help his team win now and put his name into the conversation as the Jets’ potential 2017 starter. “I think it’s a perfect opportunity for him to be able to throw his name in the pot for next season’s quarterback competition and conversation,” Pennington said during his weekly appearance on the EA Podcast. “There are four games here — three of them which I think anybody would say are extremely winnable games for the Jets, one that would certainly be a tough task into going into New England and beating the Patriots. But it’s a great opportunity for him to show that he is worthy for being mentioned for competing for the Jets’ quarterback spot in 2017.” Petty, who will make his second career start Sunday against San Francisco, has completed 54.2% of his passes with 2 TDs and 3 INTs in three appearance this year. “His goals have to be that he shows he is in command of the offense, command of his footwork and decision making, and that he is accurate. That’s what I would be looking for,” Pennington said. “I would be looking for just offensive logistics, how my offense runs with him in the huddle. Is he an extension of the coach? Secondly where is his decision making? Is he making good decisions, is he avoiding disasters? And third, is he hitting his targets?” Pennington contends that accuracy is not solely reflected in completion percentage. Petty, who completed 19 of 32 passes in his first NFL start against the Rams, will have to connect on the throws that he is supposed to make. “Completion percentage to me is more about decision making. Accuracy is truly looking at the film pass-by-pass and seeing how accurate he is,” Pennington said. “Those are the questions that came out of the game for me about Bryce Petty and those are the questions I would have moving into the last four games to try to make a determination on those three questions.” After Petty lamented that his feet and mind were not in sync during Monday’s contest against the Colts, Pennington talked about what that means for a quarterback. “What I’ve seen when I have watched Bryce play is his footwork does not match with his mind and his footwork is not telling him okay I have stayed on this route too long. It’s time to move on whether running or finding my check down,” Pennington said. “He really has to develop that mental clock and that mental clock does not come from your head. It comes from your feet. Your feet are what save you and remind you that I have spent too much time in this pocket or I have spent too much time on this specific route and I need to move on to my next option.” Learning the Ropes Together With C Nick Mangold being placed on IR earlier this week, third-year player Wesley Johnson will replace him for the final quarter of the season. Johnson, who will start his fifth game of the season on Sunday, has already developed a form of chemistry with Petty. The two 25-year olds worked together throughout training camp and both started Week 10 against the Rams. “It’s good,” Johnson said of their rapport. “I feel like we’re growing together. He’s becoming more comfortable as I’m becoming more comfortable.” View image on Twitter
  11. LOL Someone in the Jets' PR dept has to much time on their hands
  12. Cutler or Romo would be foolish, and just a repeat of the same type mistakes the Jets have made for decades. Bringing in an expensive stop gap type, that is an old has been, or a never was, is always a bad idea. Glennon I'd consider, but not to a contract with a lot of guaranteed money. Whether we like it or not, Petty is the best hope for the future. if he goes belly up the last 4 games, buckle up, the Jets are in for another long cold winter.
  13. The Eagles? Oh my, the Eagles have won less Super Bowls then the Jets have.
