  1. Everyone and their mother knew the Jets needed a TE in that draft. The run on TEs has not started. Macc tried to get cute and blew it
  2. He was, in the late 4th round when the Jets got cute and selected the CAL WR who has amounted to nothing. TEs hadn’t come off the board. We thought we could get the TE 7 picks later in the top of the 5th. First went Kittle, then Butt, and low and behold we selected our next great TE, Jordan Leggett! Boy, Macc had some awful picks in retrospect.
  3. I'm as disappointed as anyone in the start we've had, but we are in max adversity right now. Let's have a reality check here. 1) Our best two players on offense are out, including QB1 Darnold. The other is Herndon. 2) 4 of our top 5 defenders are gone (Williamson, Mosley, Quinnen Williams, Jordan Jenkins). Only Jamal Adams back there right now. 3) Doesn't excuse our OL or secondary, but when your 3rd string QB has no pocket presence (no quick release), don't expect the OL to succeed. Gase likes quick reads and pace... Falk has none of that. Any secondary will get burnt if there is no pass rush. If you recall 1999, when Vinny went down and Mirer sucked, we literally went winless for many weeks until Lucas started to put together a better second half. And that team was stacked. When you start your 3rd string QB, don't expect miracles. Hoping that when Darnold and Herndon are back, and when Mosley, Jenkins, and Williams returns), we'll see a different team. Will not rescue this season, but like most things, it's not as bad as it seems, and it is never as good as it seems (see Giants).
  4. Hi guys, Looking forward to season. I am an out-of-town, long suffering Jet fan, who relies on streaming packages to watch the games. Have had the Direct TV streaming package for the NFL for a long time (now about $400 a year, which has worked, except when games are televised locally). If I am out of town for those games, I can usually squeak by for $5.99 a month on the CBS streaming app. But, my sense is that things are changing and NFL package through AT&T/DirectTV may no longer be the best way to get the package, and also the local games if I am not home. Anyone have a beeline on the best way to get the streaming package this year?
  5. This is a fair summary of Tony. Political commentary was always a bit much as this is a football site, whatever your political leaning. But his knowledge of the game and team, and access behind the scenes, is better than most.
  6. Guys, I mentioned this last week, and also during the draft when these rumors broke. Chris Johnson is not up for the job running the organization and the Jets need an EVP/Director of Football Operations now more than ever. GM and Coach (and COO on business side) would report to this person. I mentioned Peyton Manning as an option. Mike Shanahan as well. Chad is probably too young, but he has deeper ties to the team (to Gase as well) and was a Rhodes Scholar in college. These decisions don’t impact the Joe Douglas decision, or other GM’s, and if done right, would actually attract candidates here, as the President would help cleanse the building, as Tony P would say. Assuming they get it right. Which is a big assumption.
  7. Because the team was being sold to the Johnsons and he wasn’t on board. He knew Parcells was on borrowed time.
  8. That’s not what I said... No way should Gase be in charge. No way Neil f’ckn Glat should be in charge. They need a football guy running it from the top. The coach and the GM should be reportijng to a football guy. That’s the arrangement that Parcells had, even after he stepped down from coaching. Mr. T was GM, and Groh became coach when Belli didn’t want it.
  9. This feels like when Parcells was brought aboard by Hess to run the whole operation, and we are clearly at that point again. Whatever you think about the timing of the Macc firing, it is clear that the Johnsons are clueless. It took him 4 years to do a “deep dive” into the organization? Good grief. We may speculate on the GM opening, but what the Jets need now the most is a president of football operations like Coughlin down in Jacksonville. Gase is a type A personality and needs a stronger personality to contain him a bit. A young GM is still gonna need someone to report to who knows what the f*** is going on. Two guys who would be highest on my list are Peyton Manning (give him an ownership stake) and Mike Shanahan. Both have ties to Gase, but would provide the cleansing at the top of the organization that the Johnsons seem unable to do. Thoughts?
  10. Macc deserves criticism, but in this case, he deserves all the credit for moving up to 3 before the draft last year. He effectively boxed out a lot of teams who were taken by surprise a month out from the draft. That was a power move, and the best of his tenure here. Making it seem like luck does a disservice to how great that trade was.
  11. I'll give you one more... Peyton Manning, president of football operations. Give him an ownership stake.
  12. Not a far stretch, although not sure Tanny is the guy here. The most similar situation would be Jacksonville where Coughlin was brought in to basically replace Khan, the owner. Neil Glat is not that guy. The question is whether there is that kind of person out there right now who could manage both Macc and Gase together. Tanny is an interesting choice, assuming he has a good relationship with Gase... also his Trader Mike persona would be a good complement to the over-thinking and deliberative Macc. But he is not a born and bred football guy. Mike Shanahan on the other hand?
  13. In the Macc press conference, he said that he moved up for Edoga in Round 3 because a couple of the players they liked had been snatched in the prior picks and they didn't want to lose out on Edoga. My assumption looking at the prior 5-10 picks was that they were planning to draft Connor McGovern and were beaten by Dallas who took him 2 picks earlier. McGovern had also made a visit to the facility. So the picks did not work out in their favor. Not having a round 2 pick eliminated them from Jenkins and McCoy. And there wasn't enough interest to trade-down from the 3rd pick. So the net result is that we are screwed a bit here. I think the Jets know that the oline is a problem right now; uncertainty at the tackle position beyond this year, with limited depth (Edoga helps there, but not entirely), decent at guard positions, but again limited depth (unless a Braden Smith develops), and complete risk at center (unless Toth is ready to compete). My assumption is that they will explore the trade market and be active during cutdowns for the line.
