  1. The titans are ready to compete this year. While Corey Davis may have more upside over the next 4-5 years, If my team is ready to compete for a title, I'd rather have julio jones for the next 1-2 years. Yes, he is injury prone but when Julio is on the field, there aren't many WRers who are better than him. The titans are going for it, the timing is right to go after the high risk / high reward aging veteran.
  2. Bell went to the highest bidder. He missed out on a years worth of salary and decided that the fit / team didn't matter. It was all about the $$$. I remember reading reports that the jets were essentially in a bidding war with themselves. The ravens were interested but not at anywhere close to what the jets were offering. Nobody else wanted to pay up. He took a huge risk sitting out and while he got the pay day he wanted, he went to a team that could never utilize him to his potential. When its all said and done, sitting out that year got him the money he wanted when he hit free agency but it
  3. Sacks are one thing, I’d like to see where the Jets stacked up last year vs the avg in qb pressures. Sacks just mean the defense got home. We just signed a guy with low sack totals but his pressures were at an elite rate.
  4. B, would of much rather have seen this team turn that 2 into more first and second rounders, especially after seeing how they used those premium picks in this draft. But....what’s done is done and since we’ve elected to go forward with another qb, it’s as good as it could have been on paper. With some big time prospects on offense and we took some shots on some upside defensive guys on the back side of the draft. First draft in a while where I’m not really second guessing any of the picks.
  5. My buddy said same thing. Said he was by far beat player on the defense before the acl Injury. Said there is a ton of upside with that pick.
  6. Winning more than last year is obviously important but where we'll see if this team is heading into the right direction is how they lose. I'll be satisfied with a 5 win season if most of the games are competitive. Obviously nobody wants that bad of a season but the way the jets were losing last year, there weren't many games where there was much of a chance that this team could pull off a win. This team still wont be up to par talent wise but if this team can show some fight and at least have some chances to win late in most of the games, I think the 21' season should be looked at as a success
  7. Still think the jets made a mistake not running darnold back for one more season and selling the #2 to the highest bidder. Address the QB position in 2022 with more of JD picks on the roster and another FA under the jets belt. We're more than likely drafting a kid this year that nobody had heard of until the half way point of last years college season and wasn't on a single way to early mock draft. Wilson may have the goods but we're going to be putting all of our eggs into an out of nowhere prospect. The kind of prospect where there are normally 2 or 3 of in every draft. Not excited but I am
  8. I don't think the jets would pay the price for him so he'll never get to the jets but having a guy like Julio on this team would make a ton of sense. You have a really good WR that would take the heat off our young pass catchers and give our new young QB a security blanket to help him build confidence. Would def make it easier to play QB. If you look at some of the more recent highly drafted QB's that have shown that they can be successful.... there is some what of a trend there. Mayfeild got ODB and landry, Allen got Diggs, Kyler got Hopkins. You see guys like herbert, mahomes, Watson (pre ho
  9. This is the same guy who said repeatedly that the Jets were heading in the right direction and finally found their franchise QB in Darnold. Cowherd is a talking head with little to no more knowledge than the average fan. Cowherd is an entertainer, end of story.
  10. Number changes are for profit, not cause players want it. Players taking different numbers over their current numbers will make old uni’s dated and needing to be replaced. Additionally, getting your favorite running backs number 5 Jersey should spark a lot more sales in the short term since it will be different and exciting. NFL is a business and the NFL knows how to make money. I personally don’t care and after a year or two, we’ll be used to it.
  11. He’ll prob land here or somewhere else on a 1-2 year deal...around 7-8 mill per would be my guess.
  12. I’m not a pro athlete or anything close but I decided in December that I had gained too much weight. Had always been around 175-180 but over last two years had gotten up to about 220-225. I do tree work for a living so I’m always burning calories so that helps but I also Changed my diet. Within 2.5 months I had lost 30 pounds and hit 175 pounds about a month ago. Point being, it’s crazy how much weight you can gain / lose by just the amount of food / type of food you put in your body. These guys prob just switched their diets up and worked out as usual and prob lost that weight quickly.
  13. If this has been posted already, please delete but I hadn’t seen it until today. but man, he looks really heart broken to be leaving this team...
  14. This team ruined is career. Don’t blame him a bit. He might have been a bust here no matter what we did but he had zero chance here. Mayfield, allen and Jackson have been been given all the tools needed to be successful.... Sam got Robby Anderson, lev bell, gase and a trash o line.
  15. For the guys saying they want alex smith, if we signed him, he'd likely be signed to be the week 1 starter while the new QB sits back and learns. Alex smith has never been a full time back up and probably isn't willing to do so with everything he's been through to get back on the field. Additionally, I'd find it hard to believe that with how long he's been in the league and the money he has made, that he'd want to come to a team that's been completely gutted and has little to no proven talent. This situation isn't ideal...He'd be better off trying to land with a team like the bears or the dolp
  16. Disappointing to say the least. for starters, I've seen the jets cycle through QB's for as long as I can remember but the Darnold situation, to me, was different. I don't think this kid was given a playable hand from the moment he arrived here. It looks like this team may finally have something going here as far as offensive system, front office, and etc. and the jets unload him. Secondly, this all but ends the debate that the jets are going to sell the number 2 pick to the highest bidder and set this team up with more draft capital than any other team for the next 2-3 drafts. I don't think Da
  17. Depends on your definition of desperate. To me and many others, the jets are not in desperate need to upgrade the QB this season. Do we need to upgrade? yes. But for the long term, it would be in this teams best interest to address the QB situation next season with a better team, more draft picks, and the additional information gathered by watching Darnold play in an offense that has been proven to be effective. I don't think darnold is the guy but it wouldn't surprise me either if he looked significantly better this year with gases trash offense out of the picture.
  18. I never saw Namath play but if you look at his stats, Namath is probably one of the most over rated players in the history of the NFL. Namath had more TD’s than ints just one time in his entire career and his completion percentage is very low, even in the era he played in. I know about the knee injury in college that killed his athleticism but if the guy basically wasn’t the the first sports celebrity, his name wouldn’t be nearly as it is. revis was a much better player than Namath. Namath was a much more popular athlete than revis.
  19. I’m curious. It seems almost split between the draft a QB crowd and the trade out crowd. I’m curious if this split has anything to do with how long you’ve been following the team. How old are you and what side of the fence are you on?
  20. I wouldn’t go that far yet. In the bills playoffs loss and even the week before when the bills beat the ravens, he looked exactly like the guy we saw in year two. He had a great season, can’t deny that but I’m not quite sold yet. My gut just tells me that he isn’t as good as this past season’s number showed. I’m prob wrong tho lol.
  21. Because gase is gone and Lawrence, the kid who prob would have went number 1 in the last handful of drafts is not an option. There is a huge difference in ditching Sam for TL and ditching Sam for a kid that nobody knew and not a single way too early mock draft had listed as even a first rounder. Furthermore, nobody had a clue what head coach we’d be hiring let alone the next offensive system. People we’re saying trade Sam to SF because he’s a good fit for their system but news flash, it’s going to be the same system here. People want to trade out, including myself because we have an opportunit
  22. There are a ton of positions where rookies can immediately impact the team. WR, QB, and DB take some time for the most part but o-line, RB, LB, and pass rushers can def hit the ground running.
  23. This isn’t true at all. If the Jets ultimately pass on a QB this year and take a haul of picks while keeping Sam for one more year, they aren’t tied to the hip with Sam if he fails. You do realize that there is a 2022 draft, right? There will also be a 2022 free agent class as well. This team isn’t close to being a contender. This team has so many holes they can rebuild this team in more ways than anyone can count. Your post title would be accurate if it said 2022 season.
  24. Should be able to get some reads on the potential trade partners. Who is going to pay the price to get him? Hopefully the Jets don’t pull the The same old Jets card and draft this kid.
  25. Looking over Kyle Shannahans career as an OC / HC, it became pretty obvious that in his systems, the TE’s put up consistently good to great numbers. When he was in Cleveland for his 1 season Cameron jordon was on pace to have a 700 yard season. When he was in ATL, Jacob tame also had a 700 yard season. Everyone knows about kittle so need to go there. Regardless, looking at our new OC’s background, it becomes obvious that the TE is an important asset in this offense. I don’t think pitts is an option at 2 but if we trade down to the right spot, pitts more than likely will be one of the Jets favo
