  1. I know I have the other pinned thread and I will end up merging this. Just wanted to give everyone an update. Lauren has been undergoing chemo and hormone therapy for the recurrence of her breast cancer that had spread to a few places. They started new chemo and it is a bomb, tough stuff but hopefully effective. She gets whole-body scans again today, so we will see if things are still progressing in the right direction (the last scans were good). Unfortunately, she had chemo on 12/30 and on 12/31 she wasn't feeling good. Short-staffed at Memorial Sloan Kettering, they told her to go to

  2. I do not see this being mentioned much, but Zach goes into year 2 with the same system and same coaches. This is huge. HUGE NFL teams keep making the same mistake: They draft a QB, team struggles, then they fire the head coach and then the high draft pick has to go into Season 2 getting used to new coaches, new schemes, new players, and especially new terminology and new QB coaches. So whatever strides they made are reset, and instead of having a productive offseason and just building on what they know, they have to relearn everything. And frankly it ruins QB prospects.

  4. Clearly his best game as a pro - under very difficult circumstances. He's been progressing every week and been a completely different QB since his injury/personal coach being hired. Y'all got the complete game you were looking where Zach was a major contributor to the success of offense today. Still a ways to go for sure and we need to see this consistently - but dang this was fun to watch. It's a shame we lost - but we're watching a young player turn into a franchise QB right before our eyes...enjoy the ride.

  6. Here’s the text of his post on a BYU message board: “Got to chat with ZW a little bit this week. Figured I’d share a few tidbits: • Asked him what the biggest surprise has been, being in the NFL. Didn’t hesitate to say it was the speed of the game. Guys being able to dedicate 100% of their focus to the game shifts them into an elite gear. Defenses anticipate everything so well that it’s very hard to be a step ahead. • Now that he’s Pro, said it feels normal and just part of his path, basically. Feels a lot more comfortable than at the start of the season.

  10. I have to say that for the first 6 weeks our OL was just horrific, beyond awful. However over the last 12 weeks or so our OL has gotten progressively better especially in run blocking which is a function of team work and coordination in our "zone" scheme. Even when we swap in different players our run blocking is pretty effective. We have gotten to the point we can run on almost everyone. In pass blocking we still see breakdowns but that tends to be on the individual matchup. Edoga was sort of a turnstyle yesterday. But as fans we should recognize that Benton is doing a fan

  11. Sore throat, cough, terrible body aches, tired, but the aches make sleep difficult. No real fever but woke up this morning drenched in sweat. Spent the last 2 days in bed. What a way to end a terrible year. But I'm fine with finally getting the Corona Light instead of full-blown Covid.

  12. As a Jets fan I look forward to a time when I can celebrate the NY Jets winning games in the post season again but until that time comes I plan crack a beer whenever the Patriots are eliminated and/or when Tom Brady is eliminated. 50% home on those beers as of last week and putting the 2nd on on ice now. Go Rams!

  13. We are starting to see the future of this team and unlike many other posters I am truly excited - for all those doom and gloomers I say pay attention because this Jets team is fueling up and will be taking off big time. We have a real GM ( sorry Negative Nancy’s ) - this years draft class proves he’s put together a scouting team that can pick the right prospects and we have added four major pieces on offense ( Carter, Moore, AVT and most importantly the one piece we have to have ZW franchise quarterback) - on defense we have a young secondary that is playing well and a young soon to be #1 c

  21. LaFleur is the best coach on the staff quite easily. Admits to mistakes, corrects the mistakes, admits he needs to reevaluate, does so. The people in this world that readily admit to mistakes or that their planing needs adjustment you can trust. The people that are never wrong you can't trust.

  22. Jets pick is still 4 and Seahawks, even with win, remain at pick 7. If Seahawks beat Cardinals next week, I think their pick can only fall to 11 at the worst. Panthers currently at 6th pick and they close at TB. Anyone not expect Bucs to be razor focused next week? If everything goes right next week, we will end up with 2 top 10 picks and 4 top 40 picks and 7 picks in top 115.

  23. A heck of an effort as the Jets fought TB for a full 60 minutes. But there are no moral victories in football, so a poor 4th & 2 play call opened the door for Tom Brady to do what he does and the Jets lost a heartbreaker 28-24. Let's take a look: Special Teams - Eddy Pineiro doesn't have much of a leg, as he barely got a 51 yarder over the crossbar on a 50+ degree day. But he's been reliable and deadly accurate, keeping him around to compete with Matt Ammendola or someone else would be fine with me. - Braxton Berrios did his usual excellent job in returning kicks

  25. Might surprise some people, but I honestly don't think @Maxman should allow threads like this. His personal life is his personal life, it's no business of ours just because we're fans of the team he plays for at current. I don't care that the vulture poopstain that is the NY Tabloid Media choose to cover this. Doesn't make it right, doesn't make it worthy of discussion here. I will happily crush this kid for what he does on the football field. What he does off it is his business, as long as it's not illegal (i.e. drunk driving, getting arrested or the like) or similar.

  27. Meanwhile - the kid is going to wind up being better than all three of those dudes combined. WTF with the Zach hate. From my view he's done what we've all wanted him to do...gotten better. Truth is, the only reason to watch these games is Zach. The defense is absolutely atrocious.

  28. All thing’s considered, I’m glad that we’ve moved on from Darnold, but Jets fans talk about him and Jamal Adams more than any player on the present team. It’s weird Why exactly are we supposed to still care? We got a Top 40 pick and a 4th rounder for a QB who was ultimately a disappointment, but was a good kid who said and did all of the right things. I’m content. Let’s move on.

  29. Matt Stafford has had a tough road in the NFL and it's nice to see a player of his talent finally get that very allusive first playoff win. Being on such a perennial bad team like Detroit for so long - just unable to put a team around him to help him win. I say good for him for forcing his way out. From a kid starting out having such a rough rookie year to - franchise QB on a bad team - to finally being on a good team, having his best statistical season, playoff game winner and Super Bowl contender in year 13 of his career.

  30. This is a sentiment I hear around the forum regularly, that Zach made alot of progress in the second half of the year, was a totally different QB than he was early on, etc. So I wondered if there was anything in the actual statistical production that would help support that belief, something a bit less subjective that the "eye test" of fans. Here are the results: Zach Wilson Week 1-7 (327 Off. Snaps, 6 Games) -- 104 of 181 (57.46%) for 1,168 Passing Yards, 4 TD, 9 INT, 19 Sacks, 6.45 YPA, 8 Rushes for 22 Yards and 0 TD's, and 2 Fumbles.

  31. Whether people like his other stats or not this is very important and a step, cut the turnovers down and then build up other areas and progress. Our last few flop QBs never got over that bad turnover buggaboo.

  33. It is an important topic that seems to have started off wishing a great poster a speedy recovery. I was 15 minutes deep in multi quotes and when I got 7 posts deep the asking people to not post about politics seems silly. Nobody listens. So I am just going to lock this which I hoped I wouldn't have to do. You are all allowed to think and feel whatever you want. You are not allowed to post political stuff here. Not sure why that is so hard to understand. It actually blows my mind that we can't have a thread that goes like this today: 1. Poster One: I have Covid 2. Feel bett

  38. Darnold was a good kid. He's not a legit NFL QB, but now that we've received generous draft compensation for him and it's clear we didn't make a mistake moving on he doesn't really warrant much more discussion. I don't feel good about piling on him.

  41. So many positives. Really disappointing because it feels like the coaches and players did enough to win today. Solid game planning, really good execution by a lot of guys being asked to play above themselves with so many starters missing. Far from perfect but the HC coached a heck of a game today IMO. Nobody saw the Jets sniffing being within two touchdowns of Tampa. A defense without Quinnen Williams and a very young secondary really made life tough on Tom Brady. It was beautiful. Regarding the end of the game, I have zero problem going for it on 4th down there. How could ya? You co

  42. Fred "Slappy" McGee from the Gorgonzola Gazette says that the Jets are willing to make the pick at 4, trade up, or down. The same with the 10th pick and any pick in the early, mid, or late rounds. Rumor also has it that JD will be very active in his pursuit of the best free agents. Will try to sign the best free agents that fit the scheme and stay away from players who will not contribute to winning football. "It's too early to know anything, but I've heard rumblings that the Jets prefer to trade this pick if they can, but will also consider trading up, or even taking a player when on the

  44. I think you're missing the point, which tried to explain without going too deep into the details. The Canadian Medical Board has a rule in place that you must start your medical residency within 4 years of graduating, if he does not do that, by law his education will become void. So, he won't have a medical career after he retires from football. So, he's going to have to appeal for an extension of some kind, and hopefully the overseeing board is willing to acknowledge that playing in the NFL is an extenuating circumstance that is causing him to be in violation of the 4-year rule, which
