  1. Adams was a pain in the ass towards the end and most of us agree that he was over rated, but what adams did to get out and to get paid was strictly business. He knew the jets weren’t interested in paying him long term and he didn’t want to play another down here knowing a long term contract was never coming. Some fans get lost in the drama and don’t see the business side. Adams made a business decision and got paid. Can’t really blame the guy when you see how things played out. He won, the jets won, the Seahawks lost. More and more players are doing what he did. Things have shifted ans instead of the teams fighting it, they sell them off quickly and move on. There is too much money at stake for these guys to not do everything they can to get that guaranteed money.
  2. I’d say that’s pretty fair. A ton of upside but our most proven weapon is Corey Davis. Hopefully the upside hits and we can move up on a list like this next year.
  3. Save yourself the headache and give yourself a rule of only one jet allowed. On draft day, the optimism will set in and you’ll think you’re getting a steal. Don’t let the homerism blind and ruin your fantasy teams.
  4. The guy seems bitter but it was odd that JJ fell so low. The jets traded up to get him but if they did not, who is to say he wouldn’t have fallen out of the first round? We really need this guy to be a hit but with the position being so important in todays NFL, 25 teams passed on him and didn’t think he was worth taking in the first round. With how expensive the position has gotten, you can argue that even if you’re set at the position, you can still take a pass rusher high and let the high dollar guys walk in FA. Time will tell but it was clear on draft day that not everyone was as high on him as the jets were.
  5. I think someone made a few typos when they were putting in the data.
  6. That is a rough first 9 weeks. Outside of maybe the pats and the Steelers games, any wins would be a pretty big upset.
  7. if this team can get 6-7-8 wins and and the majority of the losses are competitive.....my expectations will have been met. This team is still young and needs to learn to play together. My expectations will be a wildcard contender in 2023. If we see growth, competitiveness, and some good player development, the 2022 season will be a success.
  8. I'm trying to be realistic here when i say I think 6-7 wins is doable. Im not expecting a playoff run...and while I'd love to see the wins pile up, what we really need to see is how this team performs in the losses. Last year, we were blown out way too often. This team needs to be playing meaningful 4th quarters this year. If we have chances to win games in the 4th, if this team is making some of the better teams earn the W's - even if we come up short, it will show vast improvement from last year. 2022 is supposed to be the year where this team learns they can compete. 2023 should be the year where they are competing.
  9. The Corey Davis hate, I’m not quite sold he was a bad signing. He missed 8 full games plus some time in another 1 or two games. If you carry over and translate his stats to a full season he would have been right around 1000 yards. Also keep in mind, he missed the josh Johnson and mike white games where the offense peaked. With how weak the qb play was last year, in the games he played in, I think he’s a prime candidate to have a nice bounce back season if he can stay healthy and Wilson takes the next step.
  10. Rb’s, at least for what they contribute, make far less than other impact positions. CMC is highest paid at 16m per year, the 10th highest paid RB last year made around 6.8m. While every other position seems to be going up at crazy rates, seems like the RB market is stagnant. If you have one of those rare RBs that deserve a large second contract, it’s not likely going to destroy your cap like an elite WR would. Additionally, there is still a franchise tag. The 5th year option would of been nice but not the end of the world either.
  11. Seeing how things played out, the only thing I would have liked to have seen was the jets landing a bonafide stud at WR. Kind of like what the cardinals did with hopkins, the bills did with diggs, what the dolphins and eagles just did with AJ brown and Tyreek. Sounds like we tried but just couldn’t get anything to work. G Wilson could be good but no matter how you spin it, the NFL draft is a crap shoot. Having an elite WR would have been nice. With that being said, beggars can’t be choosers. I am very excited and optimistic about the future of this team with how the off season and draft played out. I think JD opened a ton of eyes this weekend. This team may actually be going places in the near future.
  12. JJ, but mostly because we got him at pick 26. I love a good bargain lol.
  13. Next season still isn’t gonna be great. We’ll have a few more highs but expecting a playoff push isn’t realistic. 2023 season is where the expectations should be high. All these young guys will be in their 2-3-4 seasons and should be familiar with the system at the point. 2023 is when we should really see everything starting to come together. I hope it happens sooner but I’m realistic.
  14. The hall pick should be huge for Zach Wilson’s development. A really strong run game will take the pressure off of Wilson. Should make the game a little easier for him while he continues to learn and grow. I was not sure how about how this draft would go but after 4 picks, I honestly don’t think we could have done much better.
  15. Best case scenario is we trade down from both picks and not take two guys in the top 10 that wouldn’t be top 10 draft picks in a majority of the recent drafts….
  16. This draft isn’t top heavy. It’s not loaded with can’t miss guys. You can make a case for a ton of players between 4-10 with maybe Hutchinson and ikwonu really being the only two guys being legit top 3 picks. That’s why I’m really hoping we trade down and take more shots at players. I don’t think I see any no brainers at 4 and 10. There aren’t any bosa brothers, von millers, Myles garret pass rushers. There aren’t any Julio jones, aj greens, jamar chases WR prospects. There aren’t even any QB’s that would be first rounders in some of the other previous drafts. This draft is kind of meh, which sounds about right since the jets loaded up for this to be the draft that could change the direction of the franchise.
  17. Lol, couldn’t even have Tebow in a throwing motion like the other two qb’s?
  18. Different eras have others have said. Passing records and receiving records will be shattered when this current generation hangs it up. On the flip side, emmit smiths rushing record likely won’t be touched for a very long time. This sport has changed so much in the last 15-20 years, let alone 50-60 years ago.
  19. Not gonna lie, on draft day, I remember being so excited drafting Justin miller. Prob most excited I had been over any player. Thought we got an absolute steal. Some others that had me pumped on draft day, revis, mangold, Darnold, Santana moss. been seriously following the team since 01ish, thinking about all the drafts, not a ton of players really had me pumped. It still feels to this day that most of the time, I felt we should have taken someone else. I’m mostly talking about first rounders here but I feel like from around the Vernon gholston pick and on, I’ve been either disappointed or not impressed.
  20. I’d take Williams after we trade down from 10 to the 15-20 range.
  21. Recent, josh Allen shocked me. Even by the end of his second year, thought he had bust written all over him. I’m still convinced he would of flopped here and he was the player that made me realize that most of these prospects have the goods, but if the situation is bad, the player may never get to where they could. There are so many other factors involved but the team a player goes to wasnt all that high on my list. Thought if they were good, they could be good anywhere. Don’t think that anymore. The bills had the right staff and the right team around him to prop him up and keep his confidence high while he struggled and added the right pieces at the right time to allow him to reach his potential. I didn’t see it with him.
  22. Zero chance we select at 4,10,35 and 38. There will be some trade ups / trade downs.
  23. No, but when the teams get permission to speak to him prior to approving the trade, he can say something along the lines of "you can trade for me but I will not sign an extension / I will hold out." I don't want to play for your team and this will be a headache for you if you trade for me." That would likely make the team willing to pay up for him question if they still want to go through with any deal with the texans. Cooks isn't some bottom of the barrel player that is just happy to be in the league. And honestly, I can't blame the guy. For as good as he is, he's been getting passed around like nobody we've really seen before. He's never really had the chance to see his true worth on the open market.
  24. It seemed pretty obvious that the browns bought Watson. Him going to Cleveland was shocking until we saw the contract numbers. The browns had this mayfield situation getting out of hand in real time. the browns losing out on Watson and having baker demanding a trade was not an option. Baker was not returning regardless of the outcome with Watson. Too much damage was done with the pursuit of Watson. The browns paying what they did and it being fully guaranteed was the only way to prevent the sh*t from hitting the fan.
  25. I thought the price was too high honestly. Maybe for their 10th back. You make that trade, you’re paying the kid at least 22-25 mill a year. Puts stress on the salary cap. Not like you’re getting him for a bargain for the next 3-4 years.
