  1. Watch a couple of college games of Lynch. NOT JUST A HIGHLIGHT REEL. You'll see happy feet, backpedaling in the face of pressure, throwing off his back foot, and his "cutesy, well-groomed flavor saver" on the photos around the internet. Find me a hockey player that looks like that? Sure, you'll see a few nice back-shoulder throws mixed in. But he looks more like an actor playing a "good" pirate in a kids movie, not a football player. Then watch some film of Jared Goff. You'll see a kid that took a beating, but kept stepping up in the pocket knowing he was going to get hit hard. Wentz was a better prospect than both IMO. But Goff has some balls. Lynch? They never descended.
  2. I have no idea what John Elway was looking at when he decided to draft Paxton Lynch. I could tell after watching a couple of games on youtube that he was extremely likely to fail. He has no balls.
  3. I would prefer the Jets ignore Ohio State in that 2018 draft you refer to. Gholston. Devin Smith. Schlegel. I am not impressed with Kyle Wilson, oops I mean Darron Lee, either. Nuge was OK, but a kicker in round 2? Save for Nick Mangold... they are busting out pretty bad.
  4. Pryor was never going to make this team, regardless of who, or what position, they drafted.
  5. Rough night for Jamal Adams

    Fair point there. Off the field stuff. That was just the most pressing example in recent Jets memory when the fans would have gotten it right. I dont like being dismissed as just some fan with an inflated ego. Maybe that is true... but I know that my youtube scouting would produce better results than the guys they have in Florham Park. I keep telling myself to offer my services for free as an absentee internship of sorts. What's the worst they could do? Throw my reports in the trash?
  6. Rough night for Jamal Adams

    Not only that... What makes some kid that played high school football and majored in sports management any better at evaluating talent than me? I mean, really? Is it so difficult to imagine that somebody who has watched the sport for over 30 years might actually be better at it?
  7. Rough night for Jamal Adams

    Yeah... clearly Kyle Brady was better than Warren Sapp.
  8. Rough night for Jamal Adams

    I am in. I didn't watch any film on Dak. Kudos. FTR, my biggest miss of the last 3 years was OBJ. I saw a guy that seemed to lose his balance too easily. Boy was I wrong about that. Turns out he was actually so athletic, his body was changing direction at an absurd rate of speed that few could do without stumbling at least a little. In my defense, I might not have missed that if I saw him in person as opposed to youtube videos.

    I didnt scout Maye. I am encouraged though. The Jets might have actually hit on a 2nd round pick?!?!
  10. Rough night for Jamal Adams

    Touche. But if you need more evidence of my ability to evaluate talent... go back and look at my scouting of the consensus top 3 QBs last year. I liked Wentz #1, Goff #2, and wouldn't have drafted Paxton at all. I also said people were quitting on Goff way too soon. Goff stood in the pocket countless times for a mediocre college team and delivered the ball accurately over and over knowing full well he was about to get crushed. Something Hack rarely did. Lynch? A backpedaling pansy with his cutesy "flavor sava"...

    You should consider changing your ID to "Jetsnutsinmymouth." No matter what they do, you swing from the franchise sack. All of my venom towards the scouts notwithstanding, the guy that advocated for Robby Anderson deserves a promotion.
  12. Rough night for Jamal Adams

    I didnt like his film either... but what do I know. The Jets scouts have clearly done a fabulous job.
  13. And the green-goggled sheep in the faith healing tent with their arms raised in the air lash out in anger when they realize they were hoodwinked.
  14. I said the minute he got whacked a few times behind this trash OL, his real mechanics would reappear and he would revert to an inaccurate chuck and duck. Not good enough?!?!
