Jets Info

  • Do you have season tickets?
    no
  • What Jets memory broke your heart?
    It was the first day of the season, I think against the Brownsj, the Jets lost on Monday Night football, Riggins had missed camp cause he held out for more money, came with a Mohekian to camp, played the game but fumbled I think, the Jets lost and I cried that night.
  • Where you alive for Super Bowl III?
    was 9 years old, and do remember it.

  1. Never saw him play in college, but when I learned that his YAC in college was something like 1 yard, it set off a red light in me. What does that mean? That he doesn't get separation, that he's catching sideline passes all day? It's just weird. It's like Ken O'Brien never having a rushing t.d. in his career. It means that guy is wired wrong somewhere.
  2. you can knock a draft pick like Brad Smith, but anyone remembering those years remembers that it was fun watching the Jets. Brad Smith with gadget plays and K.O. returns... Leon was the our most exciting player since Bruce Harper, and we haven't had anybody electrifiying ever since.... Coles and Cotch... were terrific, great on YAC... I still think those years were some of the most thrilling ones we've had in a while. Magnini was also innovative, and brought in good motivational speakers. Let's face it - it was fun being a Jet fan during that first year or two.
  3. so we are going to built on a solid running game? I didn't see any of our rb's stand out during this preseason, including the guy we drafted. I'd feel better about this strategy if we had a stud rb.
  4. his lack of mobility doomed him. These days, a qb has to be able to make yardage with his feet.
  5. Hot August nights and Lil' John Flowers (44) - Jets preseason has arrived.
  6. Hot August nights and Lil' John Flowers (44) - Jets preseason has arrived.
  7. How do we know he isn't Adarius Stewart? I bet he was getting the same write ups when he got drafted... a very fast little receiver, blah, blah, blah
  8. Fields dropping last amongst top qb's could be a de ja vu to what happened to Lamar Jackson, who ended up being better than most of the others (Rosen, Allen, Darnold, Mayfield) . Fields is also super athletic, like Jackson, and if you're going to talk about throwing mechanics, Jackson's look awful to me. So, Fields might be a better prospect than all of them.
  9. I lost faith when during a game this season, when he had room to run downfield to make a third down, and threw some stupid incomplete pass instead. After seeing guys like Josh Allen and Fitz and even one-legged Teddy Bridgewater showing more athleticism and scrambling ability and moxie and guts than Sam, I lost faith, It's like he still has mono - something very lethargic about him.
  10. I don't want him, because Darnold outplayed him last year, so that scares me.
  11. The question posed by the thread is not whether Mahomes would suck with us or not. The relevant question for us is: Do we go for a qb like Watson, knowing that the cupboards are bear around him, or do we built a good team first. Mahomes is better than Darnold obviously, but the point is, he wouldn't be that great without a solid enough team behind him. A great qb isn't enough.
  12. wouldn't it be de ja vu if somehow, Lawrence drops to us, just like Darnold unexpectedly did, and we are psyched as hell, and then it turns out he wasn't that great after all?
  13. Looking at the NFL these days, you have to go with the most athletic qb's, the dual threats. That's why Lamar and Allen are good (besides other factors, like weapons), that's why Rosen didn't make it. He's not an athletic guy. That's why Baker and Sam are so so. Sam seems suprisingly unathletic to me. (at first, I thought it was because of the mono). If you can't make gravy first downs running when things break down; if you have a lousy roster and can't make something out of nothing with your legs once in a while, it's going to be three and out, like it is with Sam. Plenty of times he could h
  14. I am willing to get banned - Burgess Owens is my favorite Jet on the field and OFF the field.
