  1. McLaurin looks very good so far but not sure what that has to do with anything you (or anyone else) have said. Saying Robby is a #4 on some teams is just wrong. Let alone that you said “or worse.” But there is a long line of ignorant fans (Jets fans or otherwise) that think any player who isn’t elite is a player who is mediocre or sucks. Maybe that’s why you think a talented young player who has been held back by abysmal QB play wouldn’t even start on some teams. The truth lies somewhere in the middle; no he is not a world beater but he is a solid enough outside receiver who quite possibly is not even in his prime yet. Anyone who says he is a #1 is obviously wrong. But claiming he is a #4 or worse honestly might be even dumber than that.
  2. The problem with your argument is even if you are right or partially right about certain points, you are way off base on twice as much. He is a #3 or #4 on a Super Bowl contender? That is just completely ignorant. He is effective deep and he is effective on the comeback route if absolutely nothing else. However, he showed more route capability last year and I think he will continue to do so this year now that Darnold is back. He is a young player. No, he is not a #1. But to call him essentially a fringe starter just because he is not a #1 is just absolutely idiotic. I agree with other posters who say he would have a starting role on just about any team in the league. The level of ignorance I see on this board never ceases to amaze me. Adams is vilified because he is a “box safety” and we didn’t draft someone else who was available. Robby is a scrub because he isn’t a true #1. I get that this fan base is starved for wins and success but I swear some people here just love to be miserable about every player and every facet of the team.
  3. What is your basis for saying that? He practiced today, so this is entirely different than most injury situations where there is missed practice reps on top of injury. A QB is already supposed to be no contact in practice. So he is not missing anything by practicing today with “extra no contact” compared to normal. If he is cleared he will play, and the fact that he was not cleared as of today tells us nothing about what his status will be by end of week. I am not saying he is a lock to play. But if he was a lock not to play they would be giving the reps to Falk. JMO.
  4. If the Browns offense plays like it did last week, anyone can beat them including us. But while we do have a chance, it is a long shot. There is a reason the line moved so significantly to the Browns favor after the announcement. I will still be watching. In some ways it’ll be easier because I am expecting a loss now... we very well could’ve lost anyway even with Darnold (Browns were favored on the road before he was even out). The biggest disappointment to me is not just this game or this season but not being able to watch Darnold and see if/how he progresses because that is way bigger than this season. Hopefully he comes back soon but there is a lot of uncertainty here with mono because it varies a lot in terms of severity and recovery time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. It takes a true SOJF to try to spin signing a free agent to a one year deal and trading him for a 3rd rounder before the season even starts as a bad thing. Even if we drafted Hackenberg with that 3rd rounder the trade is still phenomenal; it would be the draft pick that is bad. It is mind blowing that this is how a person actually thinks.

  6. I’ve actually been registered here since 2013, lurking for longer than that. I just don’t post very often. What I like about this board is it has true and unique character. However, it also makes negative Nancy look like regular Nancy. Lots of overreacting. Just this season alone I read about how week 1 is a must win (lol) and how Darnold needs to stop kissing loose women and think about the team. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I had mono when I was 26. First of all, the doctors told me it’s generally worse when you get it older. However, it really varies from person to person. I’m also not sure that 22 is even outside the normal range of getting it. It’s bad enough seeing other fans pile on and act like this is Darnold’s fault or make light of the illness (childish “kissing disease” nonsense). That is literally not how it works, as other posters have already said. It can be contracted through any fluids — someone sneezing on / near you, sharing food / drink, etc. In my case, I was never even sure how I got it. Taking it one step further, some posters here are using this as a “he can’t stay healthy thing” like that isn’t the most outlandishly stupid point you could try to make. Outside of keeping himself in a bubble, there is no way to surefire protect yourself from catching a virus like this... yes even if you aren’t kissing people. The news itself is frustrating enough, to see the ignorance not just from NFL fans but our own fans too just makes threads like this near unreadable. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
