  1. Not offended, not trying to censor, just thinking that the failure of others doesn’t make me feel better about the Jets. I respect that folks like to talk about other NFL topics but some of these threads are clearly trying to boost Jet fan morale by wading in the failure of our competitors or even caricaturing that failure. Take the Judge hire or the Jones pick last year. A bit too much intensity behind many posts when there is no data to really evaluate. I would say that I enjoy the threads about the Jets more. It less distracting and less negative. That’s all.
  2. Just wondering why people are so focused on other teams' mistakes in threads here. Or like to pound players that suck who we passed on, as some sort of validation of our lowly Jets? Baker Mayfield sucks, look what the Giants did, the Browns are worse than us, look at what Brady and the Pats did, yada yada. Who cares! I don't know, just seems weak and seems to imply some currency to the Jets being better as an organization, or that hey, we're not as bad as them or that player. All that really matters are the decisions this organization makes, the development of the players who are here, and the success of our coaches... there is no bonus as a Jets fan in other teams faltering, as far as I am concerned. It doesn't replace the Jets winning or making good choices on their own, which hasn't happened much in recent years. Seems to be more of a reflection of us not having much to cheer about on our own turf. Thoughts?
  3. Sounds like a power struggle in the organization. Hit piece, Ed Reed comment, Matt Miller tweet. All on the cuff of a strong finish. Someone is angling to bring Gase down from within? Top guesses: 1) Jamal Adams: just feels like this one makes sense 2) Gregg Williams, wants to be head coach, can’t stand Gase 3) Hymie Elhai: would be the worst case scenario if true 4) Joe Douglas: I know but crazier sh*t has happened. Paving the way for his own hire Any other guesses?
  4. I watched it in an airport and without sound. He was up and down, and better in the first half. Thought he pressed a bit at times, and should have run for a first down that might have set up a TD in the second half. But as someone who has been around since the 80’s, I really believe he has the most upside of any QB we’ve had. We give him a line and some playmakers, he will be special. He has great vision, and is decisive. The feet need work but he can also throw off a bad platform. Pretty accurate despite not having a true number 1 receiver. And he’s only 22.
  5. Anyone enjoying the calls going against the Pats at home? Never seen that
  6. I agree there is enough here to be worried, but a DT playing through a high ankle sprain as a rookie can be tough. Willing to give him a bit of a mulligan this year and judge next year. It is what it is. Arguably the issue is not whether we took Oliver but rather whether we took Josh Allen.
  7. Starts with having the worst oline in football, plus none of their backs have the speed to get outside, which is where Cinci has sucked
  8. this team is what it is, a bad team devoid of talent. All begins and ends with oline. Pedestrian receivers. If you see it for what it is, the three game stretch was an aberration. There are some positives... Griffin, Bless Austin, Gregg Williams coaching third stringers and practice squad players to play above their heads. Good teams are built in the trenches. Jets can mask deficiencies on defense due to a strong d-line. Their o-line is the worst in the league. You can’t overcome that. They do nothing well. Still, with Darnold at QB1 they are 4-5. About what you might expect if you take the SOJ blinders off.
  9. If Bless can stay healthy, he might be a find
  10. Difference today is they settled down and we’re solid in the 4th. That was new. Who thought when it was 27-21, they would score 13 straight?
  11. Nate Shepherd and Bless Austin had great games. people will talk about Adams and Jenkins, but a couple of young guys looked good.
  12. No, I’ve watched every game. He has tried to do too much at times without an oline or playmakers. It is what it is. This team needs an oline and playmakers. Not a qb.
  13. Are you kidding? Completions to Thomas, Anderson and Herndon either called back or dropped. Drive killing stuff. Darnold is not the issue here
  14. Dropped passes, penalties negating completions, no oline.
  15. This post doesn’t seem like shooting darts. Pay attention, he’s broken other news
  16. Agree on Mangini. Rex was good at certain things but his players were often lazy and unprepared at times. Lots of blowouts. Now mind you, not as bad as now.
  17. Funny thing is that when Parcells came here first thing he did was go retro on uniforms and brought the alumni in to instill pride in the history of the franchise. The new unis look like the “lost years” unis that he replaced. Can’t make this stuff up. Problem wasn’t the unis, it was the sh*tty team that hasn’t been to the playoffs in a decade. But boy, those black unis sure are cool! Yeah, right
  18. We are back in the Kotite days, maybe worse as we were pre-Vinny with gimpy Neil O’Donnell and Bubby Brister back then. So we had somewhat of an excuse. to me, the worst part of watching this has been the lack of accountability. It has steadily eroded since Parcells was here. This last year has been a sh*tshow. JD may be good, but we’ve been saying that about the new guy for years. Fashion show for unis never would have happened under Parcells. He’d be playing street free agents over the pampered high priced vets by now. No personnel plan at all, and a QB who is good but being ruined in front of our eyes. When JD goes up there and defends Gase today, we will be at rock bottom.
  19. So is he seriously hurt and now not tradeable?
  20. This is a no win situation. I am in healthcare. He can say whatever he wants. Jets are bound by confidentiality laws to say nothing. My sense is the Jets have been coordinating with NFL lawyers on this. Would be crazy to go it alone. Everyone’s lawyered up and the NFL is behind the curtain on this one, drawing a line in the sand. There is a lot of gray here. Osmelele was happy to hide the pre-existing injury to collect 11 million, but the Hets were suckers because they were aware of his previous injury when they made the trade. All told, would blame the Jets more here. They gambled and lost.
  21. I think that's reasonable. But everyone has a price... if someone actually offered two 1's for Jamal, would you say no? A 1 and a 2? At what price would you make the trade?
  22. I think most would agree we are in sell mode, but the real questions are: 1) Who would most return value? and 2) How do we prevent a complete implosion of the team (maybe that's not possible at this point)? All told, here is how I balance it out: 1) The safeties are the highest value trade options on the team: Sorry to say it, I like them both. Jamal Adams has been the consummate pro and is as good as advertised. He is the one guy on the team who could get a 1st and 3rd round pick in return. A difference maker for a competing team. And a position that we can't afford to pay $90 million for. in a couple of years. Marcus Maye could probably get us a second round pick. Our safeties are that good. If we are looking to acquire draft capital, they are the least riskiest and probably the highest reward. 2) Leo Williams: Sure, it makes sense as we have depth there, but unless we get back at least a 4th, we might as well let him play it out and leave in free agency. Problem is his production doesn't seem to merit that high a return, so I would be surprised if he is dealt. A waste if he is dealt for a 5th or below. 3) Leveon Bell: I think the cap hit would be a problem, but besides that, I am mindful that we are in a delicate place with Darnold. Trading away assets while ruining the quarterback does not help the team next year... Darnold's development is too important. 4) Robby Anderson: For the same reason, I don't like this trade... the Jets have no receiving options. Putting Darnold back there with noone to throw to is craziness. I would hold on to Robby for this reason alone. All total, as much as I like Jamal Adams (now in his third year), I think you trade him if you get a haul in return. ANd then use that capital to acquire OL and WR help so that we can develop the quarterback. If we get a 1st and 3rd, and then trade back to the middle rounds on both picks while getting better on the OL and WR, then perhaps Darnold develops a bit before we enter another offseason of rebuilding. No great answers here unfortunately.
  23. 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
  24. 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.
