  1. Josh Allen

    I don't know...I have no way of doing a comparison of the quality of QB's across those three universities at different years - nor do I care. You still have not addressed my earlier points.
  2. Josh Allen

    Can you actually show me some data that that PercComp % metric is the best predictor of NFL suckdom?
  3. Josh Allen

    Are you referencing Josh Allen at a Div II school? I believe Wyoming is Div I
  4. Josh Allen

    You just cherry picked one minor point I made - yet completed disregarded the points about the HOF QB's and the fact that he played at ND with very poor talent at WR. How many of his receivers will be in the NFL next year?
  5. Josh Allen

    Accuracy of a QB can be due to many things; inconsistent technique, mental lapses, poor physical ability, weak receivers, throwing the ball away when OL can consistently block. I have not really watched Josh Allen play this year, aside from whatever tape I could cobble together from youtube etc. In looking at his incompletions, many of them were receiver drops, forcing the ball to apparently overcome lack of receiver play making ability, and perhaps inconsistent footwork. His 56% completion rate is certainly not ideal but he looks like a completely differently player than Hack - Hack had many throws every game in college that were downright pitiful. Did not get the same feel with Allen. Just take a look at the career completion perception of three HOF QB's: Montana - 52% https://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/players/joe-montana-1.html Favre - 52.4% https://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/players/brett-favre-1.html Jim Kelly - 55.6% https://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/players/jim-kelly-2.html Dan Marino - 57.6% https://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/players/dan-marino-1.html Am I missing something with this viewpoint if that % completion rate must be at 60% or a QB is doomed.? I feel pretty strongly that if he was playing at a spread offense in Oklahoma his #'s would be much higher
  6. If he does come on board as OC, I suspect he brings a new blocking scheme. May have insights about the types of OL we need.
  7. A bit of a different take than most fans here on the board...with the recent hire of Hurtt and Dennard, two extremely well-respected coaches in the league, and with Studesville potentially coming on board, it looks like the Jets are bringing in very good coaches http://www.nfl.com/videos/good-morning-football/0ap3000000733494/Schrager-s-Ones-to-Watch-Eric-Studesville-and-Eliot-Wolf
  8. Although I loved Snacks on the Jets (who wouldn't) but he is not a 9.5 million/year player. He is awesome at stopping the run up the middle but a two down player should not be given that much cash. I think Simon will be just fine for us
  9. Certainly an end of the roster type of player - looks like a good ST guy. Nothing to get too excited about
  10. He may have a chance...high motor, a bit of a burst, and certainly a tough, aggressive player
  11. I though he actually looked decent the past two games. Held up agains the run at times; does not really have that burst around the edge we need but certainly is depth quality
  12. Jets Lose Team Reporter

    I can't believe this has gotten that much attention. She was working for the team, not an independent media outlet. Don't know the full story but three things: (a) she wasn't even that good, (b) why does she think she is so important?, and (c) why are we even wasting time talking about this crap.
  13. Bring back Fireman Ed

    No doubt IMO. Never understand the hate he received. In my view, he was part of the Jets identity that simply went away. I want him back!
  14. The fact that Mo got that award based on voting from teammates and training staff says something. I think with the Mo situation, there is more to it than he simply dogged. Not sure what that is, but I think Mo has been a great Jet for his entire career and then all of sudden this year, something was up. Just doesn't fit.
  15. Rex took over a 9-7 team and went 9-7 and then 11-5...flash forward six years later and he never broke .500 again. To be fair, he had exciting runs in 2009 and 2010. Bowles took over a horrific 4-12 team and went 10-6 with a journeyman, internship prone QB - that is a hard thing to do by accident. He did not have good year at all this year...there is not debating it. But his journeyman QB crapped the bed and all of the key vets began to show their age at the same time I am looking forward to seeing how you figures this out.
