  4. The Athletic Football Show podcast with Robert Mays and Nate Tice did a pretty comprehensive breakdown of the 2021 rookies, which I found pretty interesting, and you might, too! Highlights: 1. They loved Zach’s arm talent and compact, quick delivery (which they compared to Aaron Rodgers). 2. They were excited about his play against the Bucs zone defense. 3. Zach’s numbers against man to man and the blitz were, by far, the worst in the league, which they attribute to lack of familiarity with receivers and also the fact that his line at BYU was comically good. 3. Tice said that Zach is, and always was, a project who probably wasn’t ready to play. Had no plan on any particular play and was only good on plays where he had his first read. 4. They loved LaFleur’s scheme and raved about the talent he has around him this upcoming year. Starts around the 20 minute mark. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-athletic-football-show-a-show-about-the-nfl/id1528622068?i=1000562761323

  5. My wife would have divorced me if I didn't take a few days off on the birth of my children. And I was under a lot of pressure at the time to get back to work. That time with the newborns was very important to me as well. And when I am on my deathbed, looking back at my life, I doubt that I will be wishing that I had gone to work for those two weeks, I suspect that this will seem extremely insignificant when the season is underway.

  6. Can’t believe that the addition of Tomlinson and the return of Becton (no H) wouldn’t also warrant some mention. Getting the running game going and keeping the pass rushers at bay will help Zach more than anything.

  9. I think this might be the team’s most consequential draft pick. They tried very hard to find a star caliber vet at WR, and were willing to pay thru the nose to get it done. GW is something of a consolation prize in that regard. They wanted an immediate, sure-fire #1, and for good reason - Zach needed help. Instead, they have a highly regarded rookie. A lot riding on how fast he develops and how good he can be.

  13. We’ve had a great offseason. And if we make no further moves, I would still be happy. Our team looks like it is moving in the direction. With that said, we still have holes on the team and there are players that are or might become available that can really put this team over the top. Offense We’re pretty much set on offense. Our offense being playoff caliber really hinges on the development of Zach Wilson, Mekhi Becton and one of Elijah Moore / Garrett Wilson proving they’re a #1 WR. Nothing new here. We all know this and have been talking about it all offseason. Good to have: We could still use a swing tackle. Asking Max Mitchell to be that guy right away seems risky. I’m currently not aware of a player that can fill this hole. Defense Alright. Here we go. As much resources as we put into the defense, it is still not playoff caliber. Our run defense is set to be awful. There are two ways I think you stop the run. 1) Get big guys up front that demand double teams creating free LBs to get to the RB 2) have a strong coverage team that allows SS and LB to stack the box creating a numbers advantage. Our defense is setup to be the 2nd option. But we are missing a ballhawk FS and cover LB to do this affectively. - Ball Hawking Safety: We need to keep an eye out on the Jessie Bates situation. He does not plan on signing his franchise tag and the Bengals already drafted his replacement. Getting a guy like Bates, who can play single high, will allow Whitehead to predominately play in the box to help the run game and cover the flat. Two areas we sucked at last year. I would trade a 2023 2nd and Ashtyn Davis for Jessie Bates. The 2nd is obviously the key part. Seems like that is the expected return for Bates. In terms of salary, a Marcus Williams type of offer seems fair. More than that, and I’ll pass. - Cover LB: Atlanta changed their defensive system and now Dieon Jones is being asked to do things he is not good at. I expect him to get cut as a result. While he may no longer be that all-pro guy, he is still good and he is still young. The guy can cover and still flies all over the field. He just cant shed blocks. Going back to a Robert Saleh style defense will put him in position to do what he does best. And he’s a player we currently don't have. Mosley can then focus on cleaning up run plays and covering smaller areas. - Interior DL: We are rumored to be very interested in Larry Ogunjobi. This would be fantastic. He’s a better version of Sheldon Rankins who disappointed last year. Thoughts? Any other players being rumored to be on the block or possibly be a camp cut that can help this team?

  15. Historically, 2nd year QB's have thrown for a low of 17-TD/season, to a high of 36 (average 26.5). Last year, Brady threw for 43. It's highly unlikely Zach will lead in TD passes. I don't believe any legitimate Jets' fan would think he would. But if Zach merely throws for the 2nd year QB avg - 26 or 27, I believe Jets' fans would be very happy with that outcome. Don't succumb to media hype. Enjoy realistic expectations and a significant step in the right direction.

  16. I'm gonna be honest, they were so bad last year and so difficult to pay attention to without gouging my eyes out that I didn't even know he was on the team. When everyone started mentioning him more, I thought it was a new nickname for Quinnen Williams that everyone came up with and I just assumed that they were the same guy. I didn't even know he was a totally different guy until like 2-3 weeks ago. I admit this to all of you now because I am a grown adult that owns up to his mistakes.

  18. Thoughts??? First, this would be so much better if it was a youtube video made in a dingy basement with a cheap Jets flag hung behind you. Second, agree with all your points but I just don't see JD trading for Bates. He loves his early round draft picks and I sense FS isn't a huge concern of his.

  19. How, exactly, does this honest take of yours work? Does Becton hold out the entire year? Does he just never, ever get healthy again? Do the Jets trade away a starting tackle without a viable backup? Or do they just cut him and eat $11M in dead money? Really curious, I’ll just hang up and listen.

  21. So, about two weeks ago, I realized that LongTimeJetFan was back. LongTimeJetFan, formerly known as KarlaftisFan, formerly known as ArchieBunker, formerly known as GreekJet, formerly known as AtticusGase, formerly known as NYJets43, fomerly known as SteveElement, formerly known as ZachWilsonSupporter, formerly known as GloryDays1985, formerly known as 1010WINS, formerly known as...... We gave him a bit of latitude this time, but then he rewards our patience with this. Goodbye, LongTimeJetFan. At least until you sign up again. Maybe next time, try adding a space somewhere in your user name, it might throw us off for a while.

  22. What do you guys think about Wayne Chrebet being made defensive coordinator? The guy bleeds green and knows what it's like to be hit. So he's got that going for him... Which is nice. I'll take my answer off the air.

  29. It’s no surprise he was poor against man when he had no receivers that could get open half the year. This season will be very telling if it was the line, receivers, Zach, or a combination of all. I’m a homer to the extreme, but still feel great about Zach.

  32. Biggs, you seem very well educated on this topic but one thing you’re obviously forgetting is that in the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate, yet equally important, groups: the police, who investigate crime; and the district attorneys, who prosecute the offenders. These are their stories.

  33. I have no idea how many times I saw The Ramones, could be 20, 50, I don’t know. They first “hit” when I was about 13. Living on Long Island, and them being based in Queens, they’d come out and play the roller rink in the town next door. They played the colleges all the time. I wish I had the opportunity to go to CBGB’s back in that crazy heyday, but, unfortunately, I’m a bit too young. I still put on Rocket to Russia or Road to Ruin every now and again. Just fun music. Perfect antidote to the disco, art rock, and adult contemporary dominating radio at that time.

  36. They're a well coached team that is always prepared, has a great game plan, and won't beat themselves. They're ready to pounce if you want to beat yourself, the way Zach Wilson did Week 2 last year. But they're just not that talented of a team. Brady is gone. They're not "special" anymore. Getting swept by them yet again just isn't acceptable.

  37. The Patriots 1st round draft pick (who was thought to be a 3rd round talent) assumed that it must be a prank when the Patriots called him on draft night. “Is this a prank?” he asked. “They can’t be this stupid”, he probably thought. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2022/05/20/cole-strange-asked-is-this-a-prank-when-patriots-called-him-on-draft-night/

  39. But if they are committed to the Becton/AVT duo, that implies Becton will play RT and Fant will stay at LT, since we already know AVT is playing right guard.
