My excitement for this season is at about nil

I can't wait for Todd Bowles to use his last time out on defense with 27 seconds left with the ball at the pats 45 when we are up by 2 points and new england has no time outs left because he is caught substituting.

I agree to a point, it would have been fun to get a highly-touted quarterback or RB in here and see if he is a gamechanger.

But here's the one thing that has me excited to show up on opening day:  Christian Hackenberg might be a great quarterback.

Mike Maccagnan probably was the greatest scout in the NFL last April, as the only NFL scouting director promoted to GM the year before and then with a full year as GM under his belt he had access to real world experience and data to make great decisions.  And all his instincts told him to pick Christian Hackenberg in the second round.  And this year, none of his instincts told him to take a quarterback in any round.  So I believe there is something there.  And I believe we have enough talent on offense to allow some of it to peek through this year.

Archie Manning is thought to be one of the best QB's of his era despite never having a team around him good enough to get a winning record.  You could see his ability and his talent even on a team bereft of it.  Point being, if Christian Hackenberg is going to be what Mike Maccagnan clearly thinks he can be, we're going to see it on display this season no matter how lousy the team is.  And that's something to be excited about.

Every year, Archie Manning somehow gets better.....Lol

Guy was a loser and is a douche.

The Jets are not getting the top pick in the the draft, not w/o giving up considerable assets to do so - think the Bears trade up this year on steroids.



Top 3 will suffice. And they absolutely have a shot at the top pick

Basically the most excited I've been since '11 when we broke up the trio of Holmes, Edwards and Cotchery to bring in Mason and Plaxico. Being a Jet fan has been a half assed experience for me since then and this is the first time I'm really into the draft class in a long time.

hes not

its gonna be 16 games of mcclown for a 6 game win

We have a pretty difficult schedule!  So we aren't winning 6 games, even if we had an average NFL starter at QB (which we don't).  The QB battle will be between Petty and McCown, and its not a pretty picture with either one.

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?

Who cares if you don't want to watch? I don't understand the thread. Are you asking who will be joining you boycotting the season? 

Im a Jet fan & a football fan, of course I'll be watching. How much more exciting does it get when you finally see a concerted effort to rid the team of malcontents. There's plenty of interesting subplots to the upcoming season. 

Number one is Hackenberg. Second is the defense as a whole. Does Mo turn things around being 100% healthy. Does Sheldon beast playing for a future contract. Does Clairborne stay healthy? Will Burris nail down the #2 CB spot? Is Adams as great as the hype. Can Greene develop our LBs (Lee, Jenkins, Mauldin) & get some pass rush. Does Leo become the monster we expect him to be in his 3rd year in the league. Our special teams were horrific, can we turn that around?

Lets take a look at the offensive side of the ball after the QB. I'm interested to see Mortons offense. Will Enunwa, Anderson & Peake continue on an upward arc? Has ASJ finally decided to devote more effort? Stewart, Hansen, Leggett are all interesting prospects, how long will it take before we see them rotating in? 

Did we find a couple more UDFAs that will stick? I think it will be one of the more interesting seasons in a long time, plus the 2018 draft seems to have at least 3 top prospects & you know a couple more will rise after the college football season. Plus, there will be free agent QBs available too. Maybe Glennon again, Garapolo?, Taylor? maybe a few more. 

It's gonna be a lot more fun than last year. The Patriots have loaded up for another Super Bowl. What you hope for is the Patriots going 19-0 winning the Super Bowl & Brady and Belichick retiring.

If we had drafted one of these marginal QB prospects from this draft, my enthusiasm would be at a zero.  At least we look like we have some sort of plan by supporting the development of Hackenburg and Petty by bringing in McCown and not drafting anyone else.  It may not work, but at least it is a coherent plan.

This season starts the way the last the last 35 have started for me; UNDEFEATED BABY!😎 One thing that's different about this season is that ownership, aka Mr. Johnson is willing to do what it takes to build a world class team. Make no mistake, the foundation of all teams, starts at the top and I'm elated to see a different mind set for our Jets from Woody.

For a brief moment, I really got excited about the Jets, thinking about all the possibilities they could add to the roster to make this team interesting again.

I'm sorry but a couple safeties do nothing to bring that excitement... that is a couple safeties and some mid-round wr's and a TE that really feel like Jalen Saunders -  Shaq Evans -  Quincy Enunwa. Honestly feels a lot like Idzik's 2014 draft (with admittedly better players,  could anyone do worse?).

 My interest level is just bleh. If we had Deshaun Watson or Mahomes or Trubisky or Dalvin Cook or McCaffrey or Mike Williams, then ya,  I would be interested to follow this team. Something exciting to give hope. Jets right now are a cardinal sin of awful and completely uninteresting.

Call me a fairweather fan. I probably deserve it. But I'm checking out until next April. Team is unwatchable, and no I don't believe a couple safeties are the foundation to better days.  

I give you guys a lot of credit for being a better/stronger man than I. All the best, my Jet brethren. 

You are crying because the jets didn't pick 1 of these hackenberg 2.0's ? Jet fans are so impatient and stupid. We are getting a top 5 pick next yr, and there are 2-3 qbs coming out who are much better prospects. I'm surprised mac didn't want a high pick on yet another weak prospect for the 3rd yr in a row. Just have to look at next yr like a rookie training camp for 2018.

It's suck for the best Qb class in recent memory

And you know this how?

 

Darnold is the only sure thing and if we win more than 2 games we miss out on him.  The bust rate on other 1st round Qb's is like 80%

Which Qb class in the last decade will be more highly regarded than next years? Going in? As it stands, many predict that Qbs will go 1,2 and 3 overall

Shocking, a negative response from THADUDE.

The bold!  WFT were they thinking!  Sanchez was in his low level adequacy rhythm when they pulled the rug out from under him.
