    My father lost his battle with cancer this past Sunday night. He was the toughest man I know, and put up a fight until the end. Unfortunately we did not get to watch one last game together, but I was sure to let him now that they did win two in row for him. He is the reason I am a Jets fan (yes, its fault lol, but I would not change it for the world). Although we moved to FL when I was young, we would often spend summers back in NY, and one of my fondest memories was when he took me to Hofstra for training camp in 86. It was the first time in my life that I met any professional athletes in person, and I still have a Jets helmet with many of the 86 players signatures. Since I was not around when he was able to see the Jets win their only Superbowl, I had always wished that we would be able to see one together. Sadly, that will not happen, but I know he will always be with me, especially if and when I finally get to see one. This picture is from 2012 in Jax at the Tampa Fan Club tailgate. It was the last game we went to together, and I will always have great memories of watching and discussing the jets with him.

    Hey guys, its been a little while since posting. Earlier this year moved out of my parents house into my own house, and in between re-painting EVERY ROOM but 2, I have been hard at work on my den which has become my Jets Man Cave. I'm really happy with how this has turned out. I had a rough idea of how I wanted to do things, but it became like a puzzle and all the pieces began falling place. There's a lot of depressing stuff going on right now, so i'm hoping to provide a little relief unveiling it off to the rest of my JetNation friends The first part is what you see when you come down the stairs. Some figures, foam fingers, and some pictures. On the wall is a pic of my dad and I at both of our first game, 2008 Jets Vs Rams. 47-3 Final score Jets W. Got to see Brett Favre play his best game as a Jet. Only game without an interception, and the only thing Jets fans boo'd about was not going for a FG at the end for 50 points. This was still the largest margin of victory as well. Also pictured is me with Sam at last years training camp, a Mark Gastineau signed photo and a Joe Namath Silver Ink signed photo Next as you turn into the den a few framed jerseys and card display. The Sheldon Richardson is a signed Game Used Jersey from his rookie year when he won Defensive Rookie of the Year and a Sack Exchange jersey signed by all 4 members of the sack exchange Behind the sectional is my bobble head collection over the years from games as well as purchases Zooming out is a couple more framed Jerseys: A Game used Jeremy Kerley(from when he scored his first NFL touchdown), and a Boomer Esiason game used signed jersey. Boomer Esiason is the reason I became a Jets fan when I was younger(My dad was an Eagles fan, and I wanted my own team to root for, so I took the Jets because they were Green like the Eagles, and Boomer was the coolest name int he world to a 5 year old kid) This is my favorite piece in my collection. Around the corner is my professionally framed Joe Namath Signed jersey, a Boomer Pennant as well as a card display that has all Boomer, Darnold, and Joe Namath Autographs, Patches, or jersey cards. In front of the sectional is the jumbo 82 inch TV, and framed Wayne Cherbet and Curtis Martin signed jerseys. The Martin has the HOF inscription. And on the last wall is the rest of my collection. Some stuff on this wall: Darnold, Namath, Esiason, and Maynard signed Mini Helmets Signed team footballs from 09-19 one each year for training camp(I purchased the one from 2011 with the lockout, but aside form that all the sigs were acquired by me on the team balls) Mark Sanchez signed football that was for season ticket holders(purchased on eBay) with the new stadium on it Mark Sanchez sweatband from Training camp Santonio Holmes signed Photo Some custom McFarlane figures Mini Helmets on the top Other collectibles And then another card display of autographs or patches Some close ups of the jerseys: And another angle of the room to show off some mini pennants across the beam:

    There’s an adult in the room in Florham Park again. The Jets executed a competent Draft that showed there was a plan and the Jets now understand the intersection of value and need. Positives 1. Trading down to build depth and add more picks for 2021. We now accumulate picks rather than give them up. Joe D paid it forward AND got his guys. 2. Addressing the biggest positional needs (OT, WR, Edge, CB) with good prospects. I think Joe found the intersection of talent/value/need at the right spots, especially the Mims pick at 59. It took balls to move down from 48 with Mims on the Board. Of the countless mock drafts I’ve done there wasn’t a single one where I could get one of the Top 4 OTs (ex. Becton) and Denzel Mims. Joe D had the confidence to make that move. He assessed the teams behind him and took a calculated risk that paid off. 3. Using Day 3 picks to check the box ✅ for unheralded positions like Backup QB and P. The Jets lost games last year partially due to depth at QB and some bad special teams (we still have a K issue). But the picks of QB Morgan and P Mann were very solid even if not sexy. 4. Just like Free Agency, Joe D seemed to pay 80 cents for every $1 of value he got. Mims at 59, Bryce Hall in Round 5....just fantastic value. Not trading up for an OT despite some panicky news reports early on Thursday about a run on OTs in the Top 10. Another sign of a guy being very aware and astute when it comes to how the Draft will flow and where he can get certain guys. 5. Having positional foresight at the FS spot to take Ashtyn Davis so that Douglas isn’t stuck with negotiating extensions for both of the Jets starting Safeties in the next 12 months. I wasn’t thrilled with this pick initially (due to opportunity cost, see below) but Davis is an elite athlete, a true Free Safety, and shows that Douglas has clearly placed his bet on what he wants to do at Safety. An extension of Jamal went from about 55% odds to about 90% during this Draft because A.) Jamal obviously wasn’t traded and B.) With 10 picks in this Draft the Jets didn’t draft a SS, instead gaining leverage over their FS Marcus Maye. 6. Picking P Braden Mann in Round 6 showed that the Jets understand ST can be a weapon. THIS WAS A GREGG WILLIAMS PICK! ....Huh? What is jetstream23 talking about? Think of it this way... In tight games, in tied games, in games with a 3 point lead, having a player that can pin the opponent’s offense deep, can stick them inside their own 10 yard line....that empowers Gregg Williams’ defense. It will let him dial up some attacking blitzes. Mann is a weapon on Special Teams. Negatives 1. Only getting 1 WR. Yes, UDFA’s are options but there was some talent on the board at multiple spots throughout the Draft to get an additional high quality WR in Rounds 3 or 4, particularly after the trade downs. With 10 total picks this is a slight disappointment. Duvernay and Bryan Edwards come to mind. Donovan Peoples-Jones, AGG were there for the taking multiple times on Day 3. 2. Valuing athleticism over production in some spots with players that have injury concerns. At the #68 spot Wisconsin OLB/Edge rusher Zack Baun was there for the taking. Whether the drug/diluted sample issue was a big deal or not vis-a-vis the earlier pick of Becton, it was very hard to pass on this guy. The Jets took FS Davis in that spot and then came back at Edge with Zuniga. So, I’m glad the Edge position was addressed in that round but we took an athletic guy with injury concerns. The 3rd round is where I differed with the Jets on the player selection. Really thought this was the round to grab Baun and do the double-dip at WR with a guy like Duvernay. 3. Waiting on CB to very late in the Draft. I like the calculated risk of Bryce Hall. He’s a 2nd/3rd round talent we got in the 5th.....this feels like a Bless Austin pick. Talented guy but could be on the shelf for awhile due to injuries. The Jets also used a 6th rounder to trade for CB Quincy W. from Indy. So CB was addressed twice in the Draft, just not before Round 5. I’m giving the Jets a B+ overall. This Draft was impressive from the standpoint of getting needed players at the spots they should have been taken (or even later like with Mims and Hall). There’s now an adult in the room. There’s competence in the front office. Joe put on a bit of a masterclass and every thing I pointed out as a negative could very easily look like a positive in 12 months if guys like Zuniga and Davis seem to be starters. My gripes (here and in other threads) about passing on guys like Baun, Willekes, Duvernay, Bryan Edwards, etc. will probably just show why guys like Joe Douglas are a GM and I’m just throwing out opinions on a message board.

    This is twilight zone material. Swear to god. We're gifted wrapped one of the best prospects to mold, and look at this sh*t Rookie yr under OC Jeremy Bates, a guy who was lost hiking for 2 years Two yrs with Adam Gase whose offenses have been statistically the worst No one seems to understand the notion of scheming to talent. like 7 different RBs who all sucked, including washout Bell Virtually NO consistency at WR to develop chemistry with.... Robbie was the closest thing - adios Anderson! THE OLINE... MY GOD.... 18 different starters. Outside of Becton, this team is measurably worse since Darnold started in 2018 Like WHAT IS THIS?

    I am not a fan who has blind faith or will get into fist fights because of the city he was born in and that cities football team. I am here not to talk smack but to give praise. I am a grateful Seahawks fan and no, I am not here to talk about Adams. There were a number of us Seattle fans, a little more analytical in our evaluations that think you got one hell of a Tackle in George Fant. We (Seahawks fans) were hoping that eventually he would take over for Brown at LT as Duane Brown is getting close to retiring. George Fant can move and use his feet. It seems like the Jets are in the news a lot for all the wrong reasons but you should have solid Tackle play for the next 10 years and take it from a fan that knows terrible offensive line play, good Tackles matter as much as who is carrying the ball. When I was a little kid I liked the Freeman McNeil, Mark Gastineau, Joe Klecko, and Al Toon led Jets so I thought I'd come here and spread some love! -Anybody but New England or Buffalo!

    These are the types of guys that Gregg Williams has to work with. Good, hardworking players....but nobody on the planet thinks they should be starters in the NFL. They're starting for the Jets these days. Doesn't matter. We have a wizard at work, a leader of men, a guy who is putting schemes and plans together that are winning games and holding John Gruden, Derek Carr and the 6-4 Raiders to 3 points. Let's hear it for Gregg Williams!

    I've been hesitant to give my heart away again... but Joe's draft tells me I don't need to hide my Douglas pin ups any more. LT with jupiter upside, check WR I've been crushing on for a year, check CB I've been crushing on for a year, check RB i said was the best bang for your buck, check Finally a true FS... check If he can worm away a couple decent UDFA like Justin Hill, or if someone like Hodges/KJ Hill fall out altogether.... well, then I might sleep a proper 8 hours for the first time in 10 years.

    https://nypost.com/2020/07/26/jamal-adams-trade-takeaways-jets-teammates-wont-be-too-upset/ Jamal was a manipulative fraud that wanted out the whole time and just needed an excuse to do so. It came out that JD and his agent have been working for weeks on a deal, but Jamal did that Manish piece anyway to attempt to spin favor to himself. He's the definition of a diva, and I'm glad we were able to be done with all of this. Important lesson: Being loud doesn't make you a leader.

    Here's the observation, an absolutely pathetic, putrid and trash performance by everyone in a Jet uniform. After choosing not to come out for the National Anthem (don't get me started) they should've stayed in there for the rest of the game. A totally fake final score of 27-17 hides the total no show effort: Special Teams - The first play of the game should've been a sign, Josh Malone returns the KO outside the 30. Decent field position, but of course there's a holding penalty. So they start at the 9, typical. Credit to Malone because that was the only semblance of a return all game. I know Ashtyn Davis was a hurdler in college but that needs to be left on the track. He got his bell rung because he stupidly tried to hurdle a tackler - Unfortunately we saw way too much of Braden Mann. Good job by him (46.3 avg) but no one wants to see a punter that much - Sam Ficken was perfect in all his attempts (FG, 2 XP's) but so what Defense - Poor job by the defense in containing Josh Allen's running game in the first half - As usual no front seven pressure which allowed Allen way too much time in the pocket - Is Blake Cashman's body allergic to artificial turf? He gets one snap into the season and he's hurt again? He now has become the "Caucasian Dee Milliner", you have a shot to solidify a starting job and you can't stay on the field. Give me a break - An excellent Trumaine Johnson impersonation by Pierre Desir and that's not a good thing. So poor of a performance that Gregg Williams pulls him for Nate Hairston - Marcus Maye filled the hybrid role as expected and had a good game: 10 Tackles, 2 Sacks, 2 TFL, 2 Passes Defensed and 2 QB Hits - Bless Austin earned a starting job and then backed it up with: 8 Tackles and 1 TFL - Brian Poole had a costly holding penalty in the red zone which cost the team a TD. But he was productive with: 9 Tackles, 1 Sack, 1 TFL and 1 Pass Defensed Offense - What offense? A total nonsensical plan to start the game. The only groups that were able to stay on the field during camp was the OLine, TE's, RB's and Darnold. Why not test the conditioning of BUF defense and run the ball? Nope, let's spread out and have BUF test our pass protection with blitzes. How did that work? They didn't get a first down until two minutes left in the first quarter - Jamison Crowder was the only offensive player who put up decent numbers (7 rec, 115 yds, TD) and he even had a couple of drops - Chris Herndon was a non-factor (6 rec, 37 yds) with a costly fumble. And NOT ONE target for Ryan Griffin? Can someone explain this to me? - Breshad Perriman also was a non-factor (3 recs, 17 yds) - Sam Darnold was horrible I don't care what his stats were (21/35, 215 yds, 1 TD, 1 INT). You are now three years in the league, you can't have a delay of game penalty on the first play of a drive with NO CROWD NOISE. Also, you can't take a sack by running out of bounds when you can throw it away. And finally you can not throw that INT when you have an easy run in front of you that can pick up the first down. Totally inaccurate in the first half and definitely the far inferior QB. I am now officially concerned about what Darnold is and what he'll become
  31. 39 points
    Per PFF, QB's with over 400 attempts. - No QB had fewer clean pockets than Darnold - With clean pocket, Darnold was 9th in the NFL in comp pct at 72.2% Better O-line Heathy Herndon/Griffin (hopefully) Blazing speed on the outside in Perriman/Mims Crowder and Bell to work underneath Barring a million injuries, no excuse for the offense not to be middle of the pack at worst.

    PSA:. This has been discussed a million times. I'll save you the reading. Some people are going to be optimistic on Darnold. Some are going to be pessimistic. Both will say they are the ones being objective. Some will point to Darnolds weapons. Some will say it doesn't matter. Patrick Mahomes and Watson will get into the discussion, as will Jamal Adams somehow. You are now up to speed

    The site turns 15 years old today and I want to say thank you. These forums are so much fun, they keep growing thanks to your passion. To everyone that reads the forums and the site, and everyone who posts in the forums: THANK YOU SO MUCH. We put some stats in the video below, it is a bit of a flash back. A walk down memory lane and it has been an incredible ride so far. The results on the field haven't been what anyone hoped for but this fan base never gives up. The site is a reflect of that, the passion of Jets fans is stronger than ever. The numbers are staggering, over 100 million page views, closing in on 20 million site visits, WOW. I know I left people out of the thank you video, there are too many people who have helped build this site to name everyone individually. Just know that I appreciate all the hard work, all the effort that so many have put into this. You are what makes this site great. Check out the short video and let me know what you think.

    I posted this in the Game Observation thread but since his numbers are so stark I figured I'd put them in a new thread: When the season is over everything reboots. But certain things Darnold has done will carry over because he's your QB: - After the MIA game he talked about winning out and making a run. They've gone 5-2. If as a 22 year old he can rally the team after an awful start, that's huge - In the second half Darnold's stats are 140/231 (61%), 1748 yards, 12 TD, 3 INT - And the improvement in facing elite defenses has been drastic: * NE: 11/32 (34%), 86 yards, 0 TD, 4 INT * BAL & PIT: 34/58 (59%), 401 yards, 3 TD, 1 INT

    Joe Douglas shows up here and the biggest contracts on the roster are an unavailable inside LB, a past his prime RB, a broken WR, and a terrible CB. His draft assets include a promising QB prospect to go a long with a couple DTs and a safety - and the jury remains out on the QB. C.J. Mosley has played a half of football for the Jets for which he's already been paid $29M and has another $14M fully guaranteed on the way. Le'Veon Bell has been crap here, and now he's on the IR now, too. The OL? Garbage. WRs and CBs? Garbage. Pass rush? Non-existent. Douglas unceremoniously unloaded Trumaine Johnson (who still counts $4M against this year's cap). He got a third and a fifth for Leonard Williams. He'll probably dump Bell the way he dropped TJ, and he'll have a decision to make on Mosley. People continuing to whine about Da Prez are out of their minds. This trade was always going to be a net negative for 2020. This year, the Jets got Bradley McDougald for an over-hyped all pro. That's a downgrade, yeah. But next year, Seattle gives the Jets 1st & 3rd round picks and the Jets give them nothing. The following year the Jets send Seattle a 4th round pick in exchange for another 1st. This was a fantastic trade for the long term health of this team. I understand the frustration that fans are feeling this year but if you want to see the team built right, that's going to take some time. The fact is that there are still a lot of questions regarding the head coach and the quarterback, and the answers are tough to figure out without an off season program, a preseason, and what still amounts to a crappy roster. They're not going to knee-jerk it like the fans and fire the coach week two. They're going to let it play out with Sam in the same system two years in a row for the first time ever. What I see is Joe Douglas hedging his bets this year. He's going to be in better position to improve the team than maybe every other GM in the league next year - especially if the cap takes a big covid hit. He'll be in position to build around Gase and Darnold if that's what he wants, or he'll have enough assets available to attract a new head coach and bring in another QB if that's the direction he decides to go in. This was always going to take time, and this year was always going to be a lengthy evaluation process.

    They are just shifting to the regular season. With no access to camp we all are going into the season "blind". So I suggested to @Maxman that I do the "Camp Notes" throughout the season to get a feel for the roster. So after I do my normal "Game Observations" on Sundays I'll release "Camp Notes" on Wednesdays. It'll be interesting to breakdown players as they face "live bullets"
