  1. His name is Braxton, you fool.

  2. I like Fant, but he’s an average run blocker and he’s had one good year. He also got close to 30 million from the Jets (and 13M guaranteed) when no other team was offering him anything similar (to my knowledge). I think the Jets would be wise to wait for an encore performance before coughing up the big bucks.

  3. I don't need to see Wilson throw for 4,000+ yards or 35+ TDs in year 2 to feel he is on the right track. It would be great if he did. But give me a season with 62% - 65%, 3,500 yards, 25 TDs, 10 picks. Beyond the stats, let him take some shots when he has favorable matchups - 3rd and 2, loaded box, man coverage on Davis/Wilson, no safety over the top, take your shot. Lead the team back in the 4th quarter a couple times when the defense knows you need to throw. If he does that, I will be happy. In other words, let him have a Russell Wilson type year 2: 63%, 3,350 yards, 26 TDs, 9 picks. Full disclosure, the other guy in recent history to put up similar numbers in year 2 was Marcus Mariota who had an almost identical statistical season 2 to Wilson, So there are not guarantees, but at minimum, that is the type of season I am looking for.

  11. A behind the scenes look at the master himself. Narrated by Rich Eisen. Cant wait to discuss all the positive things from this doc with you guys. No bullsh!t talk of is zach a franchise qb, is becton overweight etc. This is a discussion about how our GM nailed the draft. How we have one of the best, young and well respected coaches in the league. The amazing culture Woody, Joe and Robert have established etc. Its happening Jet fans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Talk to you later tonight!

  12. Becton would basically need to quit over the next month and show up completely out of shape for him to be cut. Boomer is just saying sh*t to be controversial. Even if the FO was so done with Becton that they’d even think of cutting him he would be traded first. There would be a line of teams willing to give up picks for him.

  14. Heard it live and was surprised he said it. Claims without a doubt becton is 395 or higher. said if he does not drop 30 by camp, he could be cut. don’t agree that they would, but he did state it on air

  15. DJ will be on JetNation Radio next week FYI.

  16. DJ was one of the best reporters on the beat. Brought neutral agenda free writing, strong football knowledge, good questions in presser, broader NFL perspective, etc., to his work. Engaged well with fans - even when opinions varied or fans acted "fanatically" - and he did so consistently across multiple channels (pods & social media). He also brought some entertaining elements of youth/current culture and vernacular to the beat... in an authentic way. I'm sure he educated a few fans on what the young folks/ players are saying these days... Looking at his twitter feed - overwhelmingly Jets Twitter is sad that he's going. I'll really miss his coverage... dude is a real one, and a major loss on the beat.

  17. While he says it was fun, I imagine he's leaving because he's not getting paid a living wage by the DN. They probably can't afford experienced writes - and have two tiers: big names, and barely paid above intern level staff. OT: Few traditional newspapers can compete with the disappearance of local advertising in the digital age. Unfortunately, local print media is withering, which is especially damaging to smaller towns (not just NYC or the big cities,) because local coverage of courthouses, schools, etc., disappears completely. No oversight, more corruption and misbehavior. Not sure what the solution is - maybe let local newspapers get some sort of tax free support to help keep them afloat: they are critical to an informed voting populace. JMHO.

  20. Jets fans pathologically insist bad players are great, and great players are bad. It’s unreal. Fant is one if a tiny handful of Jets who hasn’t sucked the past 10+ years. Of course Jets fans dismiss it.

  21. Any QB panning out to FQB status or better is a statistical outlier .... we should know that better than most. The last one we could argue for is Pennington and even then a large portion of our fanbase would argue the mere implication that he was FQB material is preposterous. Which is why I am simultaneously hopeful for Zach while keeping the pyre stoked for his near inevitable descent into our most holy flames.

  24. Would cost us an extra $6M cap hit if he is cut. I don't see that is a realistic possibility. $5M cap hit if he is on the roster, $11M hit if he is cut. And a huge hole at the tackle spot; while using the $6M that we could use today to sign Reiff on a bus ticket for Mekhi instead. Does not make sense.

  26. I can't blame Fant for trying to cash in after a career year, but the prudent move for Joe Douglas would be to see if Fant can continue the same level of play this year especially after a season ending injury in 2021. Another factor is that we don't quite know whether Fant will end up at LT or RT.

  33. Yup. I would prefer if he just didn't engage with them. Just work hard and let his play to the talking when he is on the field. But I am definitely a different generation than he is.

  35. Sounds like we will have a new beat writer for the NYDN by the time camp starts. I liked DJ, once you got past his Dolphin fandom and "out of bounce" comments, I thought he was knowledgeable, shared some good insights and provided more info during practices than most of our writers.

  36. Been looking forward to this. It’s not Hard Knocks, which I wouldn’t want the Jets to do anyways, but it’s a great way to get the know about the current players beyond what we see on Sundays.

  37. Fant is roughly a 14-15M type of player based on the comp to Armstead or Wynn. He's a finesse LT who can swing to RT out of position but his natural spot is LT the thing about this Fant situation is they already screwed it up. The time to extend this player was in March. they take the 10 mil in cash he's due, convert it to bonus, spread it out over a few years, boom they just made 10 million in cap space. That could have been another linebacker or that tough run stuffing DT they needed. Shoot maybe they pay for a kicker who can hit kicks. instead they keep everything in cash, pay no one long term and missed the OPPORTUNITY to get better it almost doesn't matter if they extend him now or not, because there's no one worth paying left on the street another amazing point as recently as a week ago, Fant was a PFF darling and amazing JD find everyone loved Fant now he wants money? well he's just a swing tackle who needs to prove it again this fanbase loves it when Woody turns the screws on a player as if that extra money he doesn't spend gets distributed to the season ticket holders this is classic capital vs labor stuff. to quote Carlin, It's a big club and you ain't in it.

  38. Boomer is full of sh*t, Jets wont cut him but even if he is that weight, Becton said he would be a full participant in training camp? Opening day is when? Sept? If his knee is fully healed and structurally stable and he is really out to prove the haters wrong, that's plenty of time to get down to an appropriate playing weight and be ready to roll week 1, which is all that matters. Only person who can control that is Mekhi, so we'll see what kind of commitment he has and if he's willing to put in the work to back up the talk. I'm betting he will and the pancaking will be on!

  40. He's grossly underpaid for a top 12 starting LT in the NFL. He's in his absolute prime and a year for him will put him on the backside of his prime. Right Tackles make a lot less money on average. Guys who are really good at pass protection on the left side get paid. This is a JD problem unless Becton can play top 15 NFL LT for 15 to 17 games.

  41. I'm all about players getting paid but this confuses me. Fant was paid like a starting RT to come to the Jets, with very little starting experience. JD saw something in him and if I'm not mistaken, there are only a handful of RT making more than Fant. Is he upset because he had to play LT out of necessity last year and now thinks he deserves LT starting money? Not sure I agree, I dont think the Jets want him to play LT. It was one year and you got injured and didnt even play the full season. Plus, he's a UDFA. IDK, seems like he'll get paid if he delivers another great season but otherwise, needs to prove it again IMO.
