  1. Are the players and coaches on our team such snowflakes that they can't accept the fact that it's time to make the playoffs? We haven't been to the playoff since the 2010 season (see below). Yes, it's time. If now is not the time to place some expectations then when is?
  2. My original premise is that it seems that JD really gets it and sees the obvious. He also had a lot to do this off season. Not sure firing the coach was the type of disruption he wanted to take on. That said, I firmly believe his eye is now on Gase. There is no where to hide for him now. JD acted the part of someone that knows how to draft talent and put a team together. One draft, but a good one in my book. We'll see if he has the other part of being a GM. Getting the right coach to coach the team. Next test of JD will be how he handles Gase - IMO.
  3. It seems JD sees the obvious. If Gase is bad I'm confident he'll get rid of him (con man or not). With this as a backdrop Gase will either get good or get out. Either way I'm OK.
  4. Given the hand he was dealt how do you think Gase performed last year?
  5. JD went to school on our team and in my view, for the first time in ages, there's someone in the building that sees the obvious issues and works to address them. Very good job on his part. It stands to reason then, since JD's clearly got a good handle on what our issues are, that he's now got his eye on Gase. This is going to be a very interesting story to watch. JD's going to remove the "players stink" excuse.
  6. Sam had mono (in season) and played behind one of the worst OL in history. Our QB will be better. Our WRs had no time to get to get open and let routes develop. They will now have that time. Our WRs will be better. Our RBs had no holes to run through. They will be better Year 2 in Gregg's D, with a lot of young DL that played well last year (Sheppard, Foley), QW year 2, our All Pro ILB coming back, and young players in the secondary that can't be worse than what we had. Our D will be better. A better punter - Lach sucked. And this is in one off season with an adult in the room. We do this year over year and we will be competitive to very competitive every year. JD - man o man did he do a great job for us.
  7. amazing that it seems like the draft is completely coming to us. wonder if it's just being fortuitous or if when you have a real, competent GM that understands the market, understands his team...that this is what competence looks like. Been a long time since we've been exposed to it. So far, JD acting like a real GM. Good signs here...
  8. Crazy deep draft for WRs. Been hearing all offseason there's great value into 5th round. Let's get the Hennessey kid and finally have an OLine we don't have to worry about. Then load up on WRs. One more Olineman Joe...then get the wideouts.
  9. Been a while since a draft actually sets up nicely for our team. From what I've learned it seems this draft is very strong at OL and WR. Exactly what we need (in addition to corner and edge). With our picks, and I suspect Joe D will trade back to get more than we have today, we can come away with really good players at positions of need....without reaching. I think we'll get a LT, C, WR, WR, CB that will help us this year. That's big. Our needs usually don't line up with where the draft is strong. This year is different. This is a good thing. We have a chance here.
  10. I've been very impressed with how physical and interchangable our defensive front has been. Foley, Sheppard, Phillips, McClendon, Q, etc. There are a lot of dudes up there that are playing really hard every down.
  11. So now the criteria for being kept around is that the team hasn't quit. Jeez. Talk about having low, to essentially no, expectations. Expect more BM. Expect a winner. You're actually happy with what you're seeing. Whew...
  12. You do realize beating those teams means nothing. They are in worse shape than we are. C'mon...have some common sense. The teams were freakin terrible by any measure.
  13. I don't need to read anything. I simply need to watch the team. Gase has been terrible. Period. Getting wins against the crap teams we've beaten and thinking it adds up to anything is laughable. Gase is not good, nor is he long term for this role. Cut bait. Move on. For those of you advocating for not firing him you're basically agreeing with CJ and Woody. Good luck with that.
  14. Friend suggested I listen to Cimini with Rex on his most recent podcast. Whoa. Rex comes out and says what we're all thinking. Amazing that the insiders know Gase is a train wreck. The fans know (Cimini's take is that 9 out of 10 fans he interacts with want Gase gone now). Everyone but our boy CJ. It's worth a listen.
  15. Yes, I literally have gone from die hard, all-in to literally not giving a crap...and I feel great about it. I am completely apathetic. This is the only place I go for Jets content now, and I visit here much less than I used to. Amazingly, letting Mac hire a coach who was an utter failure within our division, firing Mac after letting him spend $100+ million and draft a nose tackle at 3, watching the coach do what he's always done - lose by a lot, lose boring, alienate players and then have CJ say his job is safe...is what finally pushed me over the edge. After all these years. I simply can't put in any more emotion for complete fools. Call me a snob but I expect more from the organizations I support. Woody and CJ have literally never done anything of consequence in their lives. I do not respect them. I mean...everything has been an utter embarrassment - even the stupid uniforms. The stadium. The uniforms. The team. Screw em. Show me something.
  16. Thank you for the write up. I personally felt the game was close to unwatchable. Although the defense stiffened they did so after getting gouged in embarrassing fashion. The game was over early in the first half. The game was never in doubt and we were non competitive again. Thank you for finding silver linings and things the team is doing OK. Candidly, the things we're doing OK are table stakes items any professional football team should be doing. Unfortunately, we celebrate them. The teams terrible play all around is making it very hard to actually gauge whether a player/coach is worth keeping and progressing. My observation is that when we face any competition at all we are outclassed and the games are non competitive and I think the best course (although it won't happen, I get it) is to reboot and change the HC.
  17. Think about it. We wait all year to watch this. Just think about that. We wait, and talk, and get excited...for this. Why do we waste our time.
  18. I love how everyone gets excited about how good our run d is. It's a passing league and everyone throws all over us. Then we play a running team and we look like a high school team. We are so bad its laughable. We literally have no shot. And we're supposed to be a pro team.
  19. It's amazing that the Jets seem to not want to hit Lamar. A couple guys pulled up. WTF. Knock his block off. We have no pride. I'm embarrassed again. And - my son (15 years old) is completely out of his mind right now. He's so pissed he can't even watch anymore. What a shame. Team is ruining its fan base.
  20. I've got enough confidence in my history of being a Jet fan to share my thoughts on this, which I'm sure will come with ridicule and snarky responses from the usual thread killers. But here goes: Since the Miami debacle I completely changed the way I follow, watch and consume information on this team. I'll admit it, I actually de-prioritized the Jets. Stopped listening to Jet podcasts while driving to and from work. Stopped following all their beat writers on Twitter. Stopped reading news articles. Visited this fan site (which I love) much, much less. Haven't bought a ticket or any merchandise since then either. I stopped organizing my Sundays around watching the game (I have DirecTV, GamePass) and would watch the game on and off, without focusing on every play, etc. I stopped getting into long discussions at work about them. The time, energy, emotion put into this team was reduced by 95%. My family can't believe it. My wife, kids are amazed I did it. I was a nut for 40+years. And I can't believe how much better I feel. I'm not exaggerating. I actually feel better. and are much, much happier. Watching this team, following this team takes a toll, and when everything they do is a kick in the balls its amazing how much relief and how much better it feels to step away. When this team starts losing guys like me there are problems...because I used to spend. Not anymore...and I actually feel great. I guess I'm a p@ssy, huh.
  21. No. They're morons. Who in their right mind would declare you're not firing Gase after what we witnessed this season? There's just no need to do it.
  22. Truth is it's the facts on Gase that are of the greatest concern. He doesn't have a great track record to draw on. The facts on him are bad. He is every bit of 4-7. He's not 4-1. That said, things are trending better...and hoping it's the beginning of long term success. Not just beating up on the little sisters of the poor.
  23. The Jets have a legit chance to get to 6-7, and be on a 5-game winning streak heading to Baltimore. If you look at the NFL schedule the next two weeks it's not unreasonable to think the Jets could actually be in the hunt for a playoff spot (highly unlikely but a real possibility) if they can get to 9 wins. Many of the teams ahead of them play each other or play really good teams. Gotta give great credit to Gase. Kudos. The team has really looked good. But considering the competition we've faced I'm finding it hard to make a judgement on the state of our team. We're playing better and look like a professional football team. That in itself is an improvement. Sam looks great. The OLine is playing well (and doing a very professional job in lieu of injuries). The defense is solid. But is all this a mirage because we're playing crappy teams? It's not crazy to see a team go from being a laughingstock to getting on a run and having some success and going into the following year with momentum, confidence, etc. Is that the path we're on? This team...I can't figure it out. Would appreciate some viewpoints on this.
