  1. Missed one: 4) Bruce Coslet coming out of retirement aka Gruden, and they do a DelRio to Bowles
  2. This is not about Pats. Something about Jets. My guesses: 1) Another team lik AZ may be trying to trade for Bowles 2) Bowles and Macc not on same page on coaches or free agency 3) A president is coming in like Casserly or someone else
  3. they got rid of dead weight, we were told that they would be 0-16, and it is already clear that top to bottom they are a better team than last year. So this is not about one game.
  4. There you have it. THey are outperforming expectations, young guys are developing. The talent is not there yet, but continuity is the name of the game here. It's time we had a regime that settled in for a while and really focused on drafting and player development. Discuss.
  5. This Bowles debate

    What you guys are missing from yesterday is that the Jets were screwed as they didn't have a slot corner. Falcons went after that early and often. Skrine was out, Coleman was on IR, and Marcus Williams was shipped out a couple of weeks ago. So we had Robert Nelson, Jr, a scrub in there yesterday. Bowles, criticism aside, cannot get water from a stone. He takes a lot of heat here, but he's got a team that is deficient in many areas, playing hard.
  6. it's a fine line between tanking and losing the entire team. Switching out coordinators all the time. I think the coaching staff is fine. Morton seems to be up for the job, and he is developing an offensive system. Worst thing we could do is start over AGAIN. So no, as much as 0-16 seemed like the thing to do, the Browns have proven it is not.
  7. Ticked off plenty last season and off-season... we are building again, so no, I'm not ticked right now. We are not a playoff team, but our team is playing harder than a lot of teams that are playoff teams.
  8. it will, after the bye, you'll see more of the young kids
  9. If you would have told me that the Jets would basically be competitive in all of their games, against decent teams no less, and then lose in the 4th quarter, I would have signed up for that. Not wishing they would lose, but more interested in development of some of the players. Still half a season to go, we'll see some of the younger guys starting to work in. Hopefully development some identity as they look to next year. Finish 5-11 or 6-10. For those of you killing Bowles, give it a break, these guys are playing hard with less talent than the teams they are playing. Positives: 1) Robby Anderson continues to develop 2) We are seeing the TE more this year 3) The rookie safeties 4) Elijah McGuire 5) Darron Lee (yes, Darron Lee, playin better) Season is playing out better than I thought, having more fun watching them than I thought I would, hoping to see cont'd develpment through the rest of the year.
  10. Things are starting to take shape for the offseason: Rosen and Darnold are likely off the board for the Jets: The Browns are unlikely to win a game this year; they are imploding, simple as that. They are worse than they were last year. Is it possible that the Jets lose out and San Francisco starts winning? Probably not. So I am starting to think that it is unlikely that Rosen or Darnold are coming to the Jets. ANd that's assuming that Darnold is coming out at all. So that leaves the next tier of rookie QB's and the vet QBs as options for next year as we have a banner amount of money to spend. Given the west coast offense, I think we can now expect the Jets to be in play for Cousins, but it will depend on what SF does. SF has the clear advantage for him, but I think the Jets will be in play. Beyond that, Garropolo may be in play, but I find it hard to believe that Bellichick will let him walk to the Jets... wildcard here, would anyone be surprised in Green Bay pulls a deal for him right now for the rest of the season? So I am still assuming the Jets pick up a journeyman, hold the fort guy like Alex Smith, or maybe take a shot at Teddy Bridgewater to join the QB room, and then consider the next tier of QBs in the draft, who should be really good. Gut tells me they are still enamored with Josh Allen, so it will be interesting to see if 1) he drops to around 10, which I think is the territory the Jets will likely be picking, and 2) if the Jets think his upside is worth a first round pick. But there will be 2nd and 3rd round QBs in this draft as well. Guys like Rudoloph, Mayfield, Falk and Browning, to name a few. Could easily see a situation where Jets go BPA in the top of the first round, and then package picks to move up into the bottom of the first for the QB of their choosing. Right now, I'd go all in on Cousins, and then go BPA in the draft to keep building (while taking a QB in rounds 3-4).
  11. Interesting view into Reggie McKenzie's box yesterday... Joey Clinkscales was sitting next to him. He was with the Jets for those big draft years. Left to join Reggie. He was a guy that didn't get a lot of credit while he was here, but we've not wowed anyone with our drafting ever since.
  12. nfl week 1 ratings

    ... and yet, the draft drew a couple hundred thousand people. My sense is that the early TV ratings are a reflection of the ADHD world we are in with short attention spans. Early in the season ratings will be down, but they will pick up around thanksgiving, and by the time we hit the super bowl there will be huge ratings. Sustaining attention in this rapid media world is really hard. Particularly when teams suck in the large markets (like NY) and Los Angeles.
  13. Scouting the qbs for next year thread

    Agree but think Darnold is a bit quicker on the run thanBig Ben
  14. Scouting the qbs for next year thread

    Has a better feel for the pocket than Rosen, quick eyes, great on the run. Think he is built better for Northeast football.
  15. Scouting the qbs for next year thread

    That's ridiculous. He methodically moved them down the field. Has a better frame than Rosen, even though I think Rosen is a stud.
