    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.

    I don't post much at all anymore, but I do read the posts and let you younger guys hammer it out. I've been a Jets fan since '64...a junior in high school when the Jets picked Namath. Before that, not much of a fan of any particular team. Fast forward to 1968, the Jets best team by far. I'm in a little place called Vietnam. Found out the Jets won the SB about 3 days after...communication wasn't like it is today. They hire this Joe Douglas guy and to be honest, I didn't know much about him like most of you...just what I read after I knew the Jets were eyeing him. I watched his presser the other day and afterwards, he brought his family on stage. BAM...there it was! Like a beacon in the dark that made my eyes almost as big as our HC. Joe's dad standing in the back wearing a cap...it said VIETNAM VETERAN. Like I said, it doesn't mean anything to you guys, but to me, this is an omen or it could be nothing. Let's hope this is an omen, because I'm in the winter of my life and not many seasons left.

    General Notes - Practice ran 2 hours and 10 minutes - Players were in shorts & shells - Elevated spy cameras are now being used to film the "all 22" view of practice instead of actual cameramen - There are now two video replay screens available so coaches/players can immediately review a drill or play - Surprisingly, music is back at practice as it was playing throughout - Marcus Maye, Brian Poole, Brandon Bryant and Bless Austin were working with the trainers. And Brian Winters also wasn't there based on One Jets Drive I expect his wife was giving birth Coach Corner With a change in staff here are some of the differences I noticed: - Practice no longer starts with an exercise period. It started with an 11 on 11 situational drill. The offense was backed up inside the 20 and had a series of plays to move the ball. It was run at half speed - The tempo of the offense has increased dramatically. The play is called and the offense is at the line with 20 seconds left on the play clock - Gregg Williams may be the face of the defense but he let's his coaches coach. Dennard Wilson (DB coach) who was given the title of "passing game coordinator" was actually tying the LB's & DB's together in coverage. Sadly I never saw that with the previous regime - Gauntlet drills are used during individual periods for WR's and OLine. The WR's weave through trash cans and have to catch balls fired at them. And OLinemen have to strike and slide through a gauntlet of five defenders - Mid practice "gassers" were run, not out of anger but for conditioning purposes Player Notes - Quadree Henderson, Greg Dortch, Tim White, JJ Jones & Valentine Holmes were trying out as retureners - LeVeon Bell displayed his unique skills today. Catching a simple screen pass, hesitating and blowing by defenders for first downs. And powering through the middle of the defense for a big run (25+ yards) - Ty Montgomery was also impressive out of the backfield - Tarell Basham (OLB) had a good day showing excellent timing on blitzes and anticipation of the snap count - Frankie Luvu (OLB) had the play of the day with a "pick 6" off of Davis Webb QB Notes - Impressive day for Sam Darnold not because of any sexy plays but with his command of the offense. When the defense brought pressure he was reading it and communicating with Jonotthan Harrison and the rest of the offense to beat it. Excellent chemistry with Jamison Crowder on a couple of blitz beaters which had the defense cursing - Disappointing accuracy by Trevor Siemian and Davis Webb in their reps. As veterans I expected more from them Standouts - Sam Darnold (command of the offense) - LeVeon Bell - Jamison Crowder - Ty Montgomery - Tarell Basham - Frankie Luvu Concerns - Inaccuracy of the backup QB's - Offense didn't function well when Darnold wasn't under center

    Just want to say thanks to everyone who posts (and reads) the forums and blog here. Had a moment at the game last night where I just felt a real sense of pride about what has been built here. I won't bore you with numbers but the stats are incredible. All time highs pretty much across the board. None of it happens if everyone reading this doesn't visit the site as much as you do. So thank you. We are about to start another season, and there is actual hope for once. I am really proud that so many people have worked so hard to build this site. Really proud that so many of you call this place your online home for Jets talk. Now that is enough of the nice stuff. I will be yelling at you all again for cursing in 30 seconds.

    I just posted the last KRL camp report for the year and I want to say thanks to @KRL. His camp reports are phenomenal. His insight is tremendous, he should definitely be doing this for a living. The feedback on his reports has been 100% positive. I have never really seen anything like it. It is a testament to both his insight and his objectivity. He has no agenda and no false narratives. He simply reports on what he sees and that is very refreshing. I know people appreciate that he does this, but I don't know that everyone realizes that he takes a week off of work and drives a really far distance to cover camp. Thank you KRL. For anyone that missed them, definitely check our KRL's camp reports here: https://www.jetnation.com/category/camp-reports/

    30 of the 32 teams in the league in his five year tenure have used at least one 2nd rounder on offensive line. 21 of the 32 teams in the league in his five year tenure have used a 1st rounder on the offensive line. All of this while drafting Bryce Petty, Christian Hackenburg and finally Sam Darnold to be the teams new young QB. The offensive line has more position spots on every down than any other position (5) Just a pathetic dereliction of duty. And for those who try and rationalize his lack of oline priority by saying he fills via trades and free agency, every team fills holes that way. But you always over pay for older vets with issues and those really good players who are young enough in FA there is big competition for. Think back to the good Jets teams of the last 15 years or so, good to great olines. I like the man, he seems nice. He's a terrible GM. Fire him already before Sam Darnold is in a cast.

    It took way too long but the Jets finally broke into the win column with a last second win over DAL. And the whole reason was one player, Sam Darnold. Luke Falk is probably a nice guy but he's a practice squad player who had no business being a starting QB. There's no comparison between Darnold and Falk and anyone who didn't think there was going to be a big change in the offense was fooling themselves. Let's take a look: Special Teams - Lachlan Edwards was his consistent self and for once wasn't on the field 10+ times (4 punts, 45 yard avg) - Solid effort by Sam Ficken as he was 3 for 3 on PAT's with a clutch 38 yard FG late to give the team a 24-16 lead. He also displays excellent length on his kickoffs - Finally a pulse in the return game. Vyncint Smith showed speed but more importantly a clue on what hole to hit on kick returns (24 yard avg). And Braxton Berrios finally got out of "Jeremy Kerley mode" and returned a couple of punts (11 yard avg). Not great but its a start Defense - A bend but not break effort by the defense. Considering that DAL was missing their two top WR's and starting OT's nothing to celebrate. They were able to hold DAL to FG's, get a couple of key stops and break up the 2 point conversion. One side note, the refs were absolutely pathetic on the final drive. Some of those pass interference calls were horrible, particularly the one on Jamal Adams - The run defense wore down in the second half and Elliott broke off too many long runs. The pass defense played too soft against pedestrian WR's, with no Cooper or Cobb they needed to be more aggresive. If Trumaine Johnson can't check average WR's its time to say goodbye. When is Nate Hairston coming back? - Probably the best game Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye played in tandem since being drafted. Maye (5 tackles, 1 PD) was excellent in coverage and delivered big tackles. While Adams (9 tackles, 1 PD, 1 TFL) was all over the field in the run and pass game. And he was the key blitzer on the 2 point play which caused Prescott to rush his throw - Foley Fatukasi (4 tackles, 1 QB hit) and Kyle Phillips (7 tackles, 1 TFL, 1 QB hit) were active in their reps. Hopefully they continue to develop into rotational pieces - Jordan Jenkins had the team's only sack and three QB hits. If Joe Douglas can ever find a real edge rusher he would be a very solid secondary option. He shows a decent knack for getting after the QB Offense - Amazing how improved an OLine can look when there's a QB who knows what they're doing playing behind them. We'll get to that when we talk about Darnold, but Chuma Edoga needs special recognition. He was very shaky against PHI but he was outstanding against Demarcus Lawrence. You never heard Lawrence name all game and he ended up with no sacks and no QB hits. Tremendous growth by Edoga in one week - Robby Anderson (5 rec, 125 yds, 1 TD), Jamison Crowder (6 rec, 98 yds) and Demaryius Thomas (4 rec, 62 yds) looked like a dynamic trio. Again, amazing how effective they were with a QB who knows what they're doing - With no more mono the Sam Darnold (23/32 338 yds, 2 TD, 1 INT) from training camp appeared: * Tremendous command of the offense * Accuracy * Throwing with anticipation * Pocket presence * "Sixth sense" to feel pressure, slide away from it and deliver the ball from different angles The defense no longer stacked the box with 8-9 players. And Darnold's quick release made the OLine look better. Bad mistake on the INT he was trying to throw to Crowder because it cost the team at least 3 points. The 92 yard TD to Anderson was pretty but what was special was what took place before the throw. Darnold changed the formation by moving Crowder to the left side which left Anderson isolated 1 on 1 with the CB. Then on the snap Anderson blew by the CB with a double move. DAL defense is stacked with a number of excellent players (Lawrence, Quinn, Lee, Smith, Vander Esch and Jones) and Darnold in his first game back sliced them up. Impressive

    I look at this roster, I look at this coaching staff, I look at this front office, and I look at this owner and you know what, I believe that this is the year we take a bold step. Not next year. This year. Call me crazy, but I think the Patriots are there for the taking right now. And I think that for whatever reason, the Jets as a franchise responds to change better than any organization in the NFL, each time we get a new coach and a new culture it creates a spark and pushes this team beyond its limits. Experienced head coach, Darnold in Year 2, big-play offense, Bell ripping easy yardage on swing passes, Adams and Mosely killing it on D under Williams' psychotic direction, excellent special teams, and a favorable schedule. We need to get off to a strong start, 4-1 looks doable leading to a Week 7 showdown at home against the Patriots in a fired-up MetLife Stadium on the highest rated MNF broadcast in decades. Patriots take a step back, Jets take a step up, we win the Division at 11-5 on tiebreakers, hats and t-shirts for everyone. SAR I

    So much misplaced anger I'm seeing.. "Joe Douglas needs to pay" "Sam is soft" "This is all Khalil's fault" Lol, what nonsense... Guess what - this is what selecting 14 Dlinemen in the last 8 drafts gets you. This is what passing on Centers and Tackles for 3rd round OLBs gets you. This is what paying Quincy to be your starting Z looks like... this is what happens when you don't draft a WR in the 1st since 2001... the list goes on and on and on... Mercs and band aides. Lets recap Our in-house Oline consists of an overpaid RG and JAG RT. our 2 RBs are paid FAs (got to be a first in NFL history) our WR was invisible today, except for the hired help held to catch 5 yard dunks. Despite spending a country's net gross in draft capital on defensive front seven prospect, the only guy who showed up was FA. Our TEs are ballin' Meanwhile: Week 1 Rookies Hollywood Brown and DK Metcalf are already better than any Jets WRs... but who needs to draft skill players when you can just over pay for FAs You don't draft well, you don't win... End of story.

    I was musing today about this multi-month event, and I suddenly had some POSITIVE thoughts about it all, Dog have mercy on me ... First, I suspect disgust with this pick within the Jets building - from Gase and others - was palpable to Chris Johnson right after the draft (if not during it.) If he didn't already have reasons to investigate what was up within the organization, or come the the conclusion that Mac and his allies were clueless, this reach and the lack of due diligence it displayed might have either been what broke the camel's back - or lead Chris to the camel. Second, the meritocracy is hopefully here. Cutting Polite (and Gase's immediate jettison of Lee) showed all the staff and players that spots were earned, not granted. Also, I have not read any reports about players feeling like they didn't get a fair shot, or stating that a cut teammate didn't get a fair shot. Working in a place where fairness is a value helps everyone. Lastly: note that although Polite's poor behavior must have started pretty early on, there was not a PEEP from coaches or players to the press or anyone else about any details, all during training camp. THIS IS GOOD, and IMHO, important. I think it demonstrates a big change in mentality, to one where the players, front office and the coaches have a unified purpose and goal, where it was clear to all that leaks to people outside the organization are NOT cool, and that internal issue are just that - in house. It's tough enough just to field a team and compete - but if you don't have factions in the locker room, the office suite and the executive boxes, THAT is a significant plus.

    The league needs to exempt QB contracts from counting against the cap because it incapacitates teams forced to pay still-developing QBs top dollar. Or, they need to crack down on the Pats paying Brady under the table. One or the other.

    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!

    We all like reading what @T0mShane writes because he is a good storyteller. His stories (I mean posts) are fascinating at times, his talent is impossible to deny. He takes us on this journey by painting a picture which his impressive football knowledge. The picture that he paints isn't always accurate. His current story involves Jamal Adams. If you read the board I don't think I have to recap his thoughts on Adams. Basically he says Adams is over rated, doesn't make impact plays and his position is of minimal importance in the NFL today. Tom is relentless, even after Jamal Adams had a game saving play against the Cowboys, the story remains the same. It doesn't meant the story is true though, it just means that Tom posts it a lot. Which reminds me of the first day I met Tom. Yes, I met him in real life and I survived to tell the story. Back then, a much younger Tom was often very critical of another Jets great, Kevin Mawae. Kevin would read Tom's posts (this is in the pre-Twtitter days) and the impression I got is that he didn't seem happy. Not sure how you could be critical of Kevin Mawae, he came here as a free agent and played at a pro bowl level year after year. Now he is a hall of famer. Yet hall of fame talent apparently isn't good enough for Tom. I had the pleasure of meeting Kevin Mawae at a draft party one year. Kevin knew posters by their screen names. He said to me, "oh you are Maxman, I like your posts". Then he said, "Is Tom Shane here? I would like to talk to him". I told Kevin that Tom was indeed at ESPN Zone that day and I would go downstairs and personally walk him back up. Kevin offered the VIP treatment, when Tom gets here he doesn't have to wait on any lines. Just let me know and I will greet him personally. How awesome is that, a future hall of famer asks for a meet and greet with you personally. Tom was going to be so excited. A chance for him to help Mawae get better. Tom seems to have all the answers, not sure what part of Mawae's game needed work, but here is the opportunity for Tom to fix it. Funny thing happened after that. Tom said, "I am not going up there to meet him". I assure Tom that there was security and he would be safe. Tom wouldn't go, instead he hid. It was the 2nd time that day he hid actually. (Insert Steelers fan telling Tom off and Tom doing nothing about it story here). So I thought of this today and just wanted to share. Jamal Adams is an impact player, don't let Tom fool you.

    wasn't excited when we got him... may hate him by week 3 of next season... but god damn it was good listening to reporters get treated like the tossing sh*t at the wall idiots they are. I expect a lot of pissy reporting about the jets moving forward by bitter beat writers...and i am ok with that.

    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

    General Notes - Players in full pads and uniforms - Practice ran 2 hours and 15 minutes - First "fight" of camp as Kelvin Beachum and Tarell Basham (???) got into it during 1 on 1 drills on the far field - Nice bounce back by the team as the penalties disappeared after a sloppy practice the previous day - In my opinion another even practice as neither the offense or defense "won" the day Coach Corner - During 11 on 11 periods the following situations were emphasized: * The offense had a 1st & 10 from their own 22 yard line * End of half two minute offense * The offense with a 1st & 10 from their own 1 yard line * An end of game situation where the offense was down 17-23 with 1:18 on the clock. Ball on their own 41 yard line Player Notes - Focused on Jachai Polite to see what's been going on with him. To me he seems to be "thinking" through his assignments instead of just playing. In 1 on 1 drills you see his pass rushing skills now he has to mix it with his other responsibiities. After saying all that he probably had his best day as he had two "sacks" during his reps - Quinnen Williams continues to display his skills as he had another good practice. On a WR screen to Deontay Burnett he showed his range as he got outside the numbers to make the tackle. In addition he had another two TFL's and a "sack" - Nice coverage skills displayed by CJ Mosley as he stayed with Jamison Crowder and forced an incompletion during the end of game situation mentioned earlier - Blake Cashman played with the #1's as the coverage LB during the end of game situation - A couple of back end roster guys deserve a mention: * Tim White (WR) had a couple of nice catches * Tevaughn Campbell (CB) with good coverage and a couple of PBU's * Neville Hewitt (LB) with a couple of TFL's QB Notes - Another good day for Sam Darnold as he spread the ball around to the normal culprits (Jamison Crowder, Quincy Enunwa, Robby Anderson and Chris Herndon). And continued to grow in his command of the offense, two examples: * During the period where the offense was backed up at the 1 yard line. Darnold used a fake snap to get the defense to show they were coming with a blitz. He then changed the call to a draw play to LeVeon Bell for a 20+ yard gain * During the end of game situation Darnold had a couple of "thread the needle" throws to Anderson (20+ yards) and Crowder (10+ yards). And then after a drop by Herndon, Darnold "won" the game by hitting Enunwa (20+ yards) on a crossing pattern as Trumaine Johnson slipped Standouts - Sam Darnold (one INT in the seven practices I've seen) - Quinnen Williams - Reducing the penalties Concerns - Can the team translate these practices into real games

    Think we finally got it right at the QB spot. This kid really seems like he has his priorities in order, heart is in the right place. Sam left NJ at dawn to spend the day with all these kids. He personally spent time with every single kid at the camp, talked to them about school, other sports they play, etc. Just about every kid got to catch a pass from Sam. They ended the camp with 7 on 7s. Sam jumped in on every game, took some snaps with every team. Really a great day for the kids, my 7 year old can’t stop talking about it.

    For years now, we've all been bitching that Macc was a freaking idiot. This s.o.b. presided over one of the worst stretches of Jets football I can remember. His incompetence is the stuff of legend. Hackenberg in the 2nd? Should've been fired right then. We finally ditch this turd and the board is going for the Beningo woe-is-us crap. I get it. Some people didn't like the timing. While I understand, we should be elated that we finally dropped the albatross around our necks. If we actually end up with either of the two guys were connected to, or both, it's going to be a major upgrade. I am ecstatic. Sure, this ass should have been shown the door with Bowles. I really would have preferred someone else running our 2019 draft, but we are past that. Screw Macc and his incompetence. It's over. The media and opposing fans want to talk smack and gloat over the dysfunctional jets? Let them. Get a guy in here that can surround our very talented signal-caller with better protection and weaponz. We'll get the last laugh. With the exception of John Idzik, I think it's hard not to make an improvement at GM. Our collective nightmare is over. Macc is gone. Let's enjoy it.
