  1. Here comes another deep pass and gift flag for NE
  2. He had Enunwa all alone in the endzone and missed a hittable Pryor for an easy TD. Those are throws he normally makes in his sleep so it's not asking for too much. The first pick was a terrible read. Definitive winning plays were there to be made despite the excuses mentioned above.
  3. Darnold left two TD throws on the field and gifted Miami a TD after the first INT. Take away those three Sam mistakes Jets win 26-13. Take away two of those mistakes Jets win either 26-20 or 19-13. Bottom line, Sam did more to lose than win today. Or enough to lose and not enough to win.
  4. He clearly grabbed it back. Didn't know you can strip the ball after it's down. Blown call.
  5. Darnold can't time his throws properly when there's no pocket to work with
  6. Bleh. Looks like a 70s gas tank off a Rupp minibike
  7. It's a spy cam on one end, a deflator needle on the other
  8. I thought f**k Detroit, that's all they get. Let's pound the living crap out of them. This team plays like they believe for real and #14 is the reason. I was actually bummed Detroit scored another point after that. The throw had the wrong arc. Should've launched it up higher and farther down the sideline to where only Powell had a chance. Not sure if anyone noticed but maybe it wasn't a pick-6 at the 19:
  9. Plus white shoes. A heartfelt salute to Namath and SB III. They looked too cool to not win last night.
  10. Lions have nothing but a gift pick-6 and here's how close it almost wasn't:
  11. Darnold to make debut as Jets visit Lions STATS/TSX A new era is unfolding with the New York Jets. The same holds true for the Detroit Lions. Rookie Sam Darnold with be under center Monday night when the Jets visit the Lions, who will play their first game under new head coach Matt Patricia. Patricia replaced Jim Caldwell, who was fired in January after going 36-28 in four seasons, including 9-7 in 2017. The former defensive coordinator for the New England Patriots, Patricia brings a winning pedigree to Detroit. He also knows how to beat the Jets, winning 10 of the last 12 meetings while running New England's defense and holding New York to 17 points or fewer in the last four meetings. Patricia is not putting too much stock in those results given the fact that the Jets have a new offensive scheme with Darnold at the controls. "Those quarterbacks that come out of college, you try to do, just as a coach, as you're going through the draft process, you're going to look at those guys coming out of school and really try to do a good job with your due diligence on them anyways," Patricia said. "You try to carry that over to what you see on tape through the preseason. So, it's a big challenge, (they have) a new offensive coordinator and maybe a couple different things scheme-wise that they're going to do with the hiring of new coaches. "So, we'll see it first-hand before we really get a taste of what it looks like because the film, I don't think is really going to show us anything." Darnold will lean on a running game headed by Isaiah Crowell and Bilal Powell. Crowell started all 16 games for the Cleveland Browns the past two seasons and provides a physical presence while Powell is among the league's best change-of-pace backs. Robby Anderson leads a wide receiving corps that includes Jermaine Kearse, Terrelle Pryor and Quincy Enunwa. Anderson had a breakout year last season with 941 yards and seven touchdowns. The Lions had the NFL's worst ground game last season and again were reliant on the arm of Matt Stafford, who threw for 29 touchdowns and 4,446 yards last season -- his seventh straight year with at least 4,200 yards passing. While Stafford has two returning 1,000-yard wideouts in Golden Tate (92 receptions) and Marvin Jones (nine TDs), Detroit bolstered its rushing attack by signing sledgehammer back LeGarrette Blount and drafting rookie Kerryon Johnson in the second round. Blount rushed for an NFL-best 18 touchdowns in 2016, while Johnson put up huge numbers at Auburn last year, leading the Southeastern Conference in rushing with 1,391 yards and scoring 18 touchdowns despite missing two games. Theo Riddick is one of the league's best third-down backs with 186 catches over the past three seasons. Darnold will need to be wary of a welcome-to-the-NFL moment courtesy of Detroit defensive end Ziggy Ansah, who registered 12.0 of his 44 career sacks last season.
  12. If it doesn't work out for ya Pete the Jets might have an opening ...
  13. Why Sam Darnold protectors are Jets’ biggest question mark By Brian Costello September 7, 2018 The Jets’ starting offensive line did not play one snap together this preseason. The unit’s members barely practiced together. Now, they face Ezekiel Ansah and the Lions on Monday night. The biggest question mark facing the Jets offense on Monday may not be their 21-year-old starting quarterback, but the unit blocking for him. Injuries in training camp prevented the starters from working together. Left tackle Kelvin Beachum did not play a snap in the preseason and barely practiced in training camp after suffering a sprained foot. Right guard Brian Winters had back tightness that kept him out of one preseason game and cost him a week of training camp. The Jets linemen and the coaches say that the group has had time to jell and they are not worried about any confusion on Monday night. “We’ve been around each other quite a bit during this whole process,” Beachum said. “So, we can’t get into this excuse making that people on the outside are trying to bring into the locker room right now. For us, we’ve got to go out and perform. We’re professionals. Every one of us across the offensive line has played games in the National Football League. When our number is called upon, we know we’ve got to execute and perform.” The injuries to their starters made the Jets offensive line look particularly vulnerable in the preseason games. It gives Jets fans reason to worry about the season and if Sam Darnold will have time to operate. But the Jets feel confident that with Beahcum and Winters back in the lineup, they will be fine. “I’m very optimistic,” offensive line coach Rick Dennison said. “I think they’ve done a good job. They’ve worked hard. Obviously, it’s the start of the regular season. There’s a little bit of unknown, but I feel good about their efforts. I feel good about the guys.” With Darnold at quarterback, there will be more focus on the offensive line and how it is doing protecting him. It is reasonable to expect the rookie quarterback to need an extra tick to make a throw than a veteran would. The offensive line is going to have to hold its blocks a little longer, but the players are not thinking like that. “You can’t get into that ebb and flow type of game where you need to change your game because somebody else is in the game,” Beachum said. “As offensive linemen, we have to stay steady. We have to be consistent. When the play is called and when our number is called, we have to find a way to execute.” Beachum could face the toughest challenge of all the linemen against the Lions. Ansah, who had 12 sacks last year, has been lining up on the left side of the offense, so Beachum could get a heavy dose of him. New Lions coach Matt Patricia surely has some tricks planned that he did not show in the preseason, and that might mean moving Ansah around. “Anytime you get a premier pass rusher it’s going to be a problem,” Jets coach Todd Bowles said. “He’s long, he’s strong, he’s quick, he’s athletic. Obviously, we have our work cut out for us there.” Beachum knows what awaits him with Ansah. “He’s a very disruptive pass rusher,” Beachum said. “I would say one of the best in the league. The NFC North presents a number of different animals on the edge. He’s one of those different animals in the NFC North. I’m excited to play him again. I know it’s going to be a great test to start the year.”
  14. That was the whole point (click bait) otherwise I wouldn't have posted it. I'm not exactly a big Macca fan though I thought others here might be.
  15. Hear that blue-eyed soul Philly sound Hall & Oates intro?

  17. Agreed. I definitely hate the Saints all black pants/socks/shoes look. Black ballet garb on 300-lb men is painful on the eyes. The Jets whites were always my fave Jets unis.
