Jets Info

  • What is your favorite Jets related memory?
    My best JETS memory is: watching the JETS win the 2009 playoff game against San Diego with my older brother.

    My second best JETS memory is being at the Meadowlands in 2008 for Bills vs. Jets, when Shaun Ellis scored a touchdown off a forced fumble to keep us in playoff contention in the final 2 minutes. The stadium was rocking! I remember hugging random strangers!
  • Do you have season tickets?
    No
  • What Jets memory broke your heart?
    After awhile it becomes a blur.
  • Where you alive for Super Bowl III?
    No
  1. Yeah, I would be annoyed. What is the point of throwing away a season if you don't get a high draft pick?
  2. Everything else aside, McCags was leaning on Robby Anderson as one of the few bright spots in the "up and coming" Jets narrative. So, lol.
  3. I agree with the OP, I can't remember the last time that I was this disinterested in an upcoming Jets season. There have been plenty of seasons where we knew we were going to be bad. This is something more than that - the fact that they'll be bad is part of it, admittedly, but not the whole thing. No one on this team particularly excites me, we don't have any of those guys that you really have to stop and take notice of, the kind that can dominate a game all by themselves. I also couldn't care less about any individual player as a person and a character in the way that I could in the past with guys like Mangold, Bart Scott, etc. Where's the personality? And many of our best players just aren't that into the team or the game (Mo, Sheldon)... if they don't care, why should we?
  4. This is the worst Jets roster I've ever seen. I'm guessing they finish between 1-15 and 4-12.
  5. You mean via a trade, right?
  6. I'm fine with going 0-16/1-15/2-14 every season until we finally get a chance at a can't miss QB. It's never happened for us.
  7. Well the whole thing is just so weird to begin with, not trying to call out Woody but what exactly is going on? How do you begin a complete rebuild in year 3 of a regime? It's not like we had Peyton Manning and Reggie Wayne, etc. and oh, now those guys are gone and retired, let's start from scratch.
  8. The defense has regressed since he's been here. He knows nothing about offense. He doesn't manage the clock well or know when to take a timeout. He's not a motivator like Rex was. He's not a disciplinarian either, apparently. So why is he here? What is the benefit of having him coach your team?
  9. If the plan is to tank for Sam, then there better be a #2 or #3 option as well because relying on your team to have the worst record in the league is difficult to do. We could pick up 2 wins along the way and there might be one team who just gets all the wrong luck and finishes 1-15 or 0-16. How many teams have less young talent? How many teams have less veteran talent? How many teams have a demonstrably worse quarterback situation? How many teams have a demonstrably worse coaching situation? When I'm asking myself any of those questions, I can't think of more than 2 or 3 teams as answers to any of them. The only thing I can think of that we have going for us is that we don't have much in the way of long term obligations. The cap will be almost completely cleared for 2018.
  10. Anyone but Fitz, Geno or Cutler. Honestly what is the harm in just starting Petty all season?
  11. Bowles says we aren't rebuilding.
  12. The same thing this dude says when down by 17 and kneeling out the clock before halftime with 1:30 and 2 timeouts.
  13. I support the complete rebuild. It's going to suck, but it's the right move. That said, a full rebuild in year 3 of a coaching staff is really weird and I don't get that part of it at all. Also, why is the GM just now, in year 3, starting to restock the roster?
  14. What evidence is there to suggest that he's a good coach? I think he has major timeout/clock management issues - like kneeling out each half, calling a timeout to decide whether or not to challenge, almost never having more than 1 timeout at the end of close games, etc. The locker room fell apart on him in year 2. During one of the late year pressers, he explained what went wrong with the season by explaining that they lost a couple early games and then it spiraled out of control. Well where was he to stop that? That's not encouraging. He hasn't been able to do much with this defense, even though that's his specialty. Yeah, our secondary was awful last season... but if you gave Bill B. a d-line with Sheldon Richardson, Mo Wilkerson, Leonard Williams and Steve McClendon, he'd find a way to cover would he not? Oh and why the heck was Sheldon playing OLB? And why did he keep running Revis out there in man to man with 10 yard cushions on receivers? As far as the roster goes, we don't have a quarterback, a left tackle, a pass rusher or a #1 corner. Maybe not even a #2 corner. Those are basically the 5 most important positions and we're 0 for 5. We have one player under 25 with star potential. Our best vets (Mangold, Marshall, Forte, Harris, Revis, etc.) are almost all on the verge of retirement with the exception of guys like Mo Wilkerson, who apparently has his own major issue with motivation/dedication. Rounding out our most talented players, there's Sheldon Richardson, who most of us would be happy to get a 4th round pick for. We drafted a 1st round LB who we hoped would beat out Erin Henderson in training camp. Then we took a 2nd round QB who needed major development --- and buried him on the roster so he couldn't develop. People point to guys like Robby Anderson, Deon Simon and Quincy Enunwa but every team has those. Cleveland has those guys, too. This is about as barren as an NFL roster can get.
  15. It's hard to imagine them making this team more difficult to watch in 2017. But this would be a good start if that's what they want.
