Jets Info

  • What is your favorite Jets related memory?
    Not SB III. I knew we had that. Mine was at Shea on the usual windy day. Namath bringing the team from behind in two plays with passes to Sauer and Maynard. The first for 50 yards. The next for the TD. I cannot remember the team (hell, I have been following this team for 50+ years), but it was one of our big rivals back then and at a critical time in the AFL season. The way Joe would look right and in a split second throw a long bullet to the left side was effin' magic. .
  • Do you have season tickets?
    No. I try to get to one game at the Hackensack Swamp and a road game every season.
  • What Jets memory broke your heart?
    Too many to re-visit. I let that $hit just drip off me. I noticed you left the most room for responses to this single question. Assholes.
  • Who is your favorite member of the NY Jets flight crew?
    The one with the tight a$$.
  • Where you alive for Super Bowl III?
    Very much alive and kicking. I was 16 and a Jets nut job even then. I have been a fan since Day 1.

  1. Non QBs you want to see the Jets draft

    The question needs to be refined... non-QB and non-Defensive Back. One of the recent mocks had us taking Minkah Fitzpatrick at #6. The best thing is, he can play Safety too.
  2. Whether a team has a top-notch franchise QB or not, the value of a competent back-up is front and center this season. And by competent back-up, I do not mean a future franchise player in waiting -- just an experienced guy who can come in and be good enough to get the job done, warts and all.
  3. All he lacks is Amaro's Cro-Magnon skull.
  4. Saquon Barkley

    No need to worry about Barkley. Browns are going to take him at #4 to go along with the QB they take at #1.
  5. KRL Thoughts

    Just make sure you change your Depends.
  6. I would be much more concerned that Jackson absolutely stinks when it comes to actual QB skills.
  7. That trend may be changing. RB's have been taken in the top 5 of the last two drafts. Barring a trade, don't be surprised to see the Browns go QB at #1 and Barkley at #4. The guy is just a friggin' stud and easily worthy of being a top 5 pick. That said, RB seems to be the position where sleeper picks frequently pan out.
  8. Have you seen the buffets in Vegas?
  9. Who can forget the legendary Ratliff to Clowney tandem? Best QB and WR combo that never was.
  10. Yeah, but we got a few wins this season. Nothing like seeing a plan work to perfection.
  11. I have given Petty benefit of the doubt due to his lack of meaningful playing time. I have seen enough. He sucks ass. Nasty, foul smelling, swampy ass. Enough already, time to give Hack a shot -- not that I am holding out much hope for him either.
  12. This thread is beginning to catch up to the greatest JN thread of ALL TIME in its own weird way.
  13. Moot point. The last draft forecast I saw on TV had the Jets taking a DE with the first round pick. I laughed so hard I fell out of my chair, but after I got up and dusted myself off I thought "that sounds just about right".
