  2. This is exactly the problem. A segment of our population have turned what isn't and shouldn't be a political issue into one of the most divisive political issues of recent memory. A. it's not 100% nor has anyone ever said it was 100%, B. for vaccines to truly work on the macro scale, a large % of the population has to get them, and C. when we don't reach that goal, you get more and more virulent variant forms, faster, as it works through the unvaccinated population and mutates, which ultimately can/will diminish the effectiveness of the existing vaccine(s) putting the vaccinated at more risk again of the most severe symptoms.

  3. Excellent article about Greg Knapp in today's MMQB: After Quinn’s staff was fired in Atlanta, Knapp was hired by Robert Saleh to be the Jets pass-game specialist, and work directly with 34-year-old Mike LaFleur, breaking into his first job as a coordinator. Over the last six months, LaFleur, Jets quarterbacks coach Rob Calabrese and Knapp were connected at the hip. LaFleur and Knapp had dozens of dinners, met in Napa over the NFL’s summer break, and, of course, were around each other constantly back at the office in Jersey. LaFleur didn’t really know Knapp much beforehand—outside of being connected on occasion through brother Matt and old boss Kyle Shanahan—but it didn’t take long for the young coach to take to his older counterpart. Quickly, he saw what Quinn did. “His process was, when you say cross and T's and dot the I's, this dude was the best I've ever been around at making sure that everything was going to be done in research to the fullest extent, to make sure that we are so prepared when we go talk to these guys and we talk to the scouts, when we are doing anything that's job-related,” LaFleur says. “It was incredible and that was something I took from it, that there’s no skipping steps. When I would kind of get a little hyper and want to overtalk about things, he'd bring it back to the foundation and it kind of level me out. “And the second thing I'll say is, we'd be in team meetings and Saleh would be just going through his presentation for the day or what have you, and he's taking notes on everything. It never stopped for him. And I'm sitting back there kind of thinking about practice. And he is so locked into what Saleh’s saying, taking the notes, trying to always learn.” Over time, and through a process of vetting quarterbacks for the draft, and putting in new Jets system, he saw how Knapp could capture the young guys in his room, like Zach Wilson, all the same as he once did Young, Manning and Ryan. “You gotta be a really good coach,” LaFleur says. “You got to be able to relate to them within being yourself and Knapper had no problem being himself every single day. I mean, he was never different in the six months I was with him, there was never a bad day. There was never an up day. Every day was just up for him. Everyone does that little hand gesture that you're even keel, his even keel is just up, it's just unbelievable. “And yeah, when you think about the situation we had with Zach and Mike White and James Morgan, guys that haven't played, naturally they're going to be a little more receptive to the coaching. And even the young guys are going to see through bulls---, but they quickly saw that Knapper’s not bulls---, he knows his stuff. Then you look at the Matt Ryans and the Peytons, guys that were good before him but still took to him, it's because they’re seeing the amount of time and work he puts into it, every single day in the process.” LaFleur says he believes that, “Knapper’s going to live on in this quarterback room” because of what he, Calabrese, Wilson, White and Morgan learned in their six months with him. “I've seen how my brother is doing it, how Kyle's done it. And it's been great,” LaFleur says. “I've learned a lot from them. But then there were things that I saw with Knapper that I think both those two, if they saw it, would be like, Wow, that was a really good, very easy way to say it and just a good process when you're getting into that room.” Now, imagine the impact he had in six months there, and think about extrapolating it over 26 seasons, and that’s the start of how the NFL community processed the horrible news last week. In fact, Quinn was on a group text that Mora organized that had more than 30 of Knapp’s former staffmates and quarterbacks on it. Mora put it together to keep everyone updated on the situation, but it didn’t take long for it to turn into a de facto tribute thread. “There’s a lot of people jammed up on this,” Quinn says. “Defensive coaches. Offensive coaches. [Jets DC] Jeff Ulbrich told me a story about him, as a linebacker, as a rookie, he was struggling, and Knapper was doing bedcheck. And he said, ‘He must’ve talked to me for 20 minutes over a particularly tough time. It wasn’t going good my rookie year, here’s a guy who doesn’t know me at all and he changed my outlook, and said you’re gonna be fine, and gave him some perspective. “I think that captures Knapper. He was a guy just wanting to help somebody, whatever position, ballplayer or coach, he was a dude that really had a good vibe with people. That’s why it hurts so much. Everybody has their own little Knapper story. It sucks. We’re gonna miss that.” Making it even harder for those that know him is the station of life he was in—happily remarried, a year away from being empty-nesters with Charlotte, and with big plans for the future that had as much to do with living as coaching. It’s something that LaFleur quickly pointed out as we’d talked about how Knapp had that unique ability to reach quarterbacks young and old. “You're right on both, except you undersold him,” LaFleur says. “He is an absolutely phenomenal quarterback coach. But he's an even better person. And that's what really sucks about this whole thing. He was at such, as you've probably heard, a good, good point in his life. I didn't know him 20 years ago, five years ago. I selfishly think we had the best Greg Knapp anyone's ever seen, the last six months. There was such a peace and ease in his eyes and his demeanor and he was so ready to attack this next stage of his life. “And it's a shame. But it's up to us, anyone that knew him, particular our staff right now, because we were with him last, to make sure that we learn from those lessons he taught us and move forward with them.” Clearly, there were plenty of them.

  4. I’ll always root against Brady, so the SB irked me, but Belichick is worse. If he spends the twilight of his career helming a series of 6-10 Bradyless squads, it would make me very happy

  8. Baptism by fire for the young CBs. I like it! This D is all about applying pressure to the QB and capitalizing on wobbly passes that come off the hand of a rushed QB throwing the ball earlier than he wants to! It's not like the Jets will be playing guys who have never seen NFL action before. They may be young but Bless Austin, Bryce Hall, Guidry, etc. have all seen live bullets in NFL action. The question of how well they can hold up is fair, but these guys do know NFL football. Let's give them a chance and see what Saleh can do with them. I think they'll get a bit of a pass from fans who will be patient.... the real pressure will be on the DLine because that's where the expectations are! QW, Rankins, Foley, Lawson, Curry, JFM, etc..... THOSE are the guys fans will need to look at and say, "Do what we know you can do! Make life easier on that young secondary." I'm perfectly fine with this approach.

  9. I hate Belichick way more than Brady. He screwed the Jets by going behind their back for the Patriot job and he has been open with his disdain for us. He’s also a cheating scumbag. Brady didn’t choose the Pats and all he did was play great for many years. The deflated balls was annoying but I can’t believe it was that big an advantage. I would have rather they both dropped dead but Belichick is way worse and the hit to his genius rep with Brady winning without him was of some consolation.

  13. Did it ever dawn on anyone that Knapp's death and funeral has slowed the process down since I would imagine JD and most of the coaching staff traveled to Cali for the funeral and/or visitation. I also wouldn't be surprised if Zach has agreed to terms, but the Jets didn't want to announce the signing until Zach was actually in NY to pose for the obligatory signing pic. Zach can't do that if he's in Cali for the funeral. They also may not have wanted to announce the signing so close to coach Knapp's death. I wouldn't be shocked at all if we get the Zach has signed announcement today.

  15. I just pointed your personal choices are a reflection of who you are including your intelligence and judgement. You seem to want to discount my personal choices as being relevant. The personal choices you make may well impact how quickly we get passed this pandemic which impacts my health, economic well being and future ability to make the choices I want to make. We are in a pandemic. When we went to war millions of people were drafted many went against their will because it was war. A global pandemic requires people doing some things they don't want to do for the well being of everyone else. This obsession of yours about personal choice as if your choices were more valuable than mine is insulting. Stupid doesn't do you justice. You sound like a self absord, moron. Yes that was most definetly a personal attack. I accept the ban as required. Biggs out!

  17. As long as Brady is in the other conference, I really don't care that he won another one last year. I would much prefer to see the Pats, our Division rivals struggle. I was rooting for GB in the NFCCG and KC in the Super Bowl last year, but as a choice between two evils, I would much rather see Brady win in TB than Beli win again in NE.

  22. Gsexy's death had done a number on them. After killing Black Noir and Homelander, the Boys had thought Vought was about to crumble. But when Gsexy's body turned up this morning, they realized that Vought was still dangerous, and there was still work to be done. "It's gotta be Dice" was the main refrain early on that day. "He struck when everyone was sleeping. Australian time and all that." "That makes no sense," Dice replied. "And besides, I've got new intel. Look here. Security footage of JiF sneaking into Gsexy's house last night just before the murder." "Bullsh*t," said JiF. "Would I have loved to sneak into Gsexy's house at night? Of course. But only because of his sexiness and to let him do whatever he pleased with me, not to murder him! This video must be doctored" "But I thought you were the doctor!" they all shouted. "I was joking! I'm my favorite role!" JiF replied. The votes piled on. Devastated over the loss of Crusher and Gsexy's beautiful face from the game, JiF didn't put up much of a fight. He just had one request. "Please. Let me go out on my own terms. Have Love Sausage do it." The group looked at each other. "Fine," they agreed. At that exact moment, a long tentacle looking object crashed through the glass and wrapped itself around JiF's neck "Is that a-- it is!" As Love Sausage's love sausage choked the last bit of light from JiF's eyes, a smile crept across his face. At last, he was at peace JiF, aka Grace Mallory - Vanilla TOWN, has been choked to death by a love sausage. It is now night.

  27. Is there a way to allow covid threads on the main forum and ban individual posters from threads who break the politics rule? Because this is getting serious again. Frank Reich just tested positive and is going into quarantine. DeAndre Hopkins and others are pissed about possible vaccine mandates. It’s the biggest story in the league by a wide margin and I’m sure the Jets will be affected at some point, even if it involves one of our opponents or division rivals.

  31. The Jets are building a whole new thing. It’s not a rebuild, it’s foundational. They’re gonna get the kids on the field at CB, LB, WR and see what they have. They’re not in the rush some fans are, they’re trying to do it the right way. In this defense, that means a different breed of CB.

  32. Well there it is. Calling people stupid for personal choices. And at least state the facts. Right on the front page of NJ.com it will tell you 49 people who were fully vaccinated in NJ alone have passed due to Corona Virus. We should be able to discuss Covid and how it affects the NFL and the NY Jets but to start your post with "people are stupid" is why these threads get locked. Keep your personal feelings to yourself and just discuss Covid and how it relates to the NFL.

  34. It was just before sunrise, but MM hadn’t slept a wink. He’s just gotten done with his 5th one minute bang of the night, but couldn’t get the events of the past 3 days from his mind as he took another drag from his cigarette. A juvenile corrections officer and published author in a magazine/newsletter, MM had seen a lot of sh*t. Hell this wasn’t even his first time around the block tracking supes. But this? They were on the verge of blowing the lid off the story of the century and taking down Vought for good, but was it worth the cost? He heard a creak downstairs. Maybe he was just paranoid. But with what he’d been up to, you can’t be too careful. He grabbed his gun and headed downstairs. Hallway? Clear. Kitchen? Clear. Living room? Clear. Paranoia it was. He went to the bathroom and splashed some cold water on his face. It was clear he wasn’t getting any sleep tonight anyway, so might as well be sharp. As he turned off the faucet, he glanced up into the mirror. ”Wow,” he muttered to himself. “The Boys are right. My sexiness is unbelievable.” If he wasnt understandably distracted by his incredible good looks, MM might have seen the little red dot in the mirror as it made its way from over his shoulder onto the back of his head. The last thing before the bullet splattered his brains was his gorgeous face staring back at him. Not a bad way to go out. Good night, sweet prince. Greenseed, aka Gsexy, aka MOTHER’S MILK - TOWN TRACKER, has been shot in his Greenpeen.

  35. Richard Sherman was a fifth round pick. This defense looks for different traits than traditional press/man CBs, and they drafted a few and want to see what they have in a foundational year. It’s the smart move in a year when you’re not expecting to contend. Develop what you have by getting them on the field, supplement next year when you have a better idea of what you have and where you’re going.

  37. Obviously the records and super bowls pan this out. But, I'm not so sure. Brady has been historically lucky, and on historically good defenses. In his last 3 Super Bowls combined, Brady's defenses have allowed 33 points on 32 drives. Additionally, he's 2-0 in Super Bowls when leading the offense to 13 points or less. Every other QB in NFL history is 0-25 under these circumstances. This data is from prior to the 2020 season: Over the course of his career, Brady's average starting field position averages out to 8th best in the league. Rodgers is 15th, Brees is 17th, and Manning is 19.5. Over the course of his career, in points per drive of the defenses, Brady's averaged 9th, Manning averaged 17th, Rodgers is 18th, and Brees's is 21st. 6 times is his career Brady's had a top 5 defense is points per drive, vs 4 times for Manning, Rodgers, and Brees combined. If you look at it in terms of top 10, 13 of 18 seasons, Brady's had a top 10 defense in points per drive. Defensive TDs: Brady's teams average 4.6 per year. Manning 3.8, Rodgers 3.7, Brees, 2.8 Interestingly, opposing kickers have made 76% of FGs against Brady, whereas the other 3 are all over 80%. Pats since 2001 have had the 2nd best FG% in the NFL, and the lowest FG% against over that same time. As for playoffs, Brady gets worse by over 7 points in passer rating. The other super bowl winners, Montana, Aikman, Bradshaw all improve. Tuck Rule, Vinettari makes that kick, Winning AFCCG in 2000 despite 0 points on offense, Wins Super Bowl 36 despite on 13 points on offense, Carolina kicks ball out of bounds in late in Super Bowl, Marlon McCree picks off Brady w/ 6min left in AFCCG and then fumbles it back, Winning 2007 AFCCG despite 3INTs and 66 Passer rating, winning 2011 AFCCG despite 2 INTs and a 57.5 passer rating, Malcom Butler, The Falcons, Myles Jack down by contact, Dee Ford.

I'm not a political partisan so I just look at the facts and I think the president saying that vaccines are 100 percent effective is a big problem and backed up my post.....there was lots of people touting the vaccine as being 100 percent effective till the break through cases but I'm not gonna waste my time finding them because you've already exposed yourself as a rank partisan and unable to have an adult conversation.
