  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 i
  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 poste
  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 t
  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. T
  8. Eagles have looked terrible for two weeks, Jets have looked great for two weeks. Maybe things change the other way this week, but I'm not believing that until I see it. Jets 27 - 13
  9. To be fair, I've seen the same scaredy-cat response from a good 50% of Jets fans. We're not a shoe-in to win tomorrow, but nobody ever is. Maybe we lose; there is always that possibility. But I'm sick and tired of the SOJF mentality. I like the Jets chances to win, and you should too. Maybe they won't deliver, but that won't be the end of the world. Instead, Jets fans have sucked the fun out of this week. They are all worrying while the 0-2 Eagles fans are puffing out their chest and proclaiming victory. Screw that. Take a chance, believe in the team we saw the last two weeks. Maybe they fal
  10. I think they absolutely have to try to find a QB in the draft next year. There won't be any answers in FA, but I would like to bring in someone like Locker, Hoyer, Bradford, Moore, etc. to provide some competition and give us another option. HC is equally important, and I hope they're gunning hard for Harbaugh. If by some miracle we could get Mariota and Harbaugh, I might actually find myself excited for next season to start.
  11. I would have to agree. The Dolphins looked pathetic in that game, so while we may not have damaged their playoff hopes I think someone else will soon enough. I don't think any Dolphins fan can be overly optimistic about their team after that stinker. Tannehill essentially threw 3 interceptions (Walls and Pace with horrible drops), and they put up a whopping 16 points on a terrible pass defense and no Wilkerson up front. As for the Jets, I wouldn't bemoan knocking the Pats or Dolphins down in either of those games, but I will be fully satisfied if they lose their remaining 4 at this point.
  12. Saunders was a total farce. I guess we don't really know what we have in Evans, but at least we did get one good pass-catcher out of Amaro (or so it seems). It sucks coming out of last year's draft with potentially zero receivers. But between Decker and Harvin I don't think it's a big position of need as it was before.
  13. I'm with you except for trying to go after Cousins. He was serviceable early on at times, but he's been brutal this year and last. Even while he's throwing 3 picks and getting benched for McCoy, I still see people suggesting him as a legitimate trade option. If we're looking to bring in competition, I'd be much more comfortable with Bradford or Locker. Maybe even Matt Moore (he's scheduled to be a FA, correct?). I'd be fine with Hoyer as well, although I tend to think the Browns will keep him around. One of those options along with a draft pick would be an improvement over the dumpster fir
  14. I'm not sure anybody worth it will slide to #18. Unless we get DeSean, we really need to draft a WR in that spot anyway. If we got DeSean and one of the premier QB's slipped, I can't say I'd hate an open QB competition (hopefully favoring Geno or the rookie and leaving Vick as a last resort) because the rest of our offense would be looking pretty good with the exception of G and TE.
  15. If Geno looks reasonably competent in camp, he'll likely get the nod. Vick is being brought in as assurance and somebody to push Geno. Idzik will give Geno every chance to succeed IMO, but in the event Geno struggles and does not have a better 2nd year Vick will be ready to go. I can't say I'd be shocked if Vick ends up the day 1 starter, but at this point I'm not sure I'd predict it.
