  1. Just my useless opinion, I dont feel like any of the WRs are worthy of the 11 overall pick,  It looks to me that there are about 10 WRs are are extremely close in regards to overall talent and what you get in round one, will pretty much be there in round 2.   What do I want?  I want JD to trade down, I want 5 picks in the first 3 rounds, 1 OT, 2 WR, 1 EDGE, 1 CB.

    Or at least I'll be surprised if he does. Why?

    - Douglas seems to have a good amount of old school about him. And old-school types like a Parcells, Belichick - did they ever go WR round 1? I remember their 1st-round picks more along the lines of d-line, o-line, defense in general.

    - His background: a former college offensive linemen, reared in the Baltimore and Philly personnel departments, teams that generally featured stout o-lines when he was there. 

    - He's mentioned multiple times the importance of protecting Sam up front, giving his talented young QB the best chance to succeed. Such as here: “Obviously we need to have a strong offensive line. We have to do a good job of taking care of Sam moving forward,” Douglas said (https://nypost.com/2020/02/25/joe-douglas-background-shows-what-jets-makeover-could-be/).

    - And here, also from the NY Post: Douglas must — and will — fix the broken offensive line, which needs at least three new starters in 2020. “The line of scrimmage is always going to be a priority here,’’ said Douglas, a former college offensive lineman (https://nypost.com/2020/01/01/joe-douglas-first-big-chance-to-rebuild-jets-is-finally-here/).

    So I doubt JD goes WR round 1.

    Another reason why, more ancillary: his biggest offseason WR acquisition Breshad Perriman - a complete 1st-round bust in Baltimore. Although Douglas wasn't there when Baltimore drafted him, that's exhibit 1 on his roster of a first-round WR bust.

    However, If JD does take a WR in round 1, I won't be surprised if it's Ruggs. From the Post: 

    The Jets offense, which ranked dead last in the NFL last season, needs more than just linemen. The unit needs some explosive playmakers, especially if it loses Robby Anderson in free agency. “I think you saw that in the two teams that competed for the Super Bowl this year,” Douglas said. “How many explosive players they had on both sides of the ball. Everyone is trying to get bigger, faster, smarter, tougher. We need explosive guys. We need explosive, dynamic playmakers.”




    Against Parcells wishes Robert Kraft drafted Terry Glenn in the 1st rnd (aka "she", tho the Tuna grew to love him), you may remember that pick led to the Kraft/Parcells divorce.   Aside from that - Little Bill took N'Keal Harry in the first round just last year!

    I'm not a great X and O guy but I believe Jenkins and Golden basically play the same position as a 3-4 outside LB while Clowney is a DE with his hand in the dirt.  Clowney is very good against the run and ok as a pass rusher.  He's not asked to pass cover like Jenkins or Golden.  Other guys who post here could probably give a better explanation...

    Clowney is athletic enough to be a 4 down OLB, also he is much better at containment (setting the edge) than Golden.  Nevertheless, I think he ends up back in Seattle.

    Its finding the right balance because people will not like what comes after America crashes. 

    I think that starting May 1, State by State, the stay at home orders will be released, Companies will start ordering employees back to work, we will have to wear masks in public and in the workplace and will be warned to not socialize after work, no hugging or kissing anyone and urged to social distance.  People will break the restrictions, the virus will spike again but it will be too late to do anything because businesses will not shut down again.  We will have to live in a culture of people getting sick and dying every day for the next year.  This is just reality.

    whos attacking who? Who’s the paranoid one? I see a lot of mean words pointed towards at me. I think you are confusing “ facts” with opinions. 
    how do you know what could have stopped the spread? Because some so called expert said so? 
    It’s a so called FACT that communist China who was trying to silence people over the Virus no longer has any more cases? Do you believe you really believe that?

    There have been countless viruses over the history of the world - the only proven way to stop a pandemic is ISOLATION.  Look it up - its not too hard to find thousands of accounts of this online,  This aint rocket science.

    I don't think you understand the difference between a fact and your strongly worded opinion. 

    YOU made this a political argument - NOT ME.  Name one thing I said about Trump (or Governor Murphy) that was NOT a fact.  I stated an estimate of how many people will get sick and die - that was an opinion and that was the only thing that was an opinion.  Did you see the projections put out by Rutgers today - they said 1.3M NJ residents will get Covid-19.  NJ has 16,400 hospital beds.  if the projected 20% are serious we will need 260,000 hospital beds.

    Trump was being called a “racist” for  banning travel from China at the end of January. Europe just started locking down borders after Trump then banned European travel. Europe is a bloated with the virus. Country’s such as Germany and Italy with a fraction of the US population have more cases.

    every country has the virus and there really is no way to completely contain it. So get over your hate for Trump as you embrace the government controlling every aspect of your life and relying on the government for everything from toilet paper to fresh water. The socialist state Democrats want is finally coming. Lets see how much you love your Deep Stated politicians who are already making tons of money after shorting the market

    I was stating facts bro not starting up a political argument.  I did not say ONE negative comment about the Republican Party, then you come storming at me attacking me for criticizing Trump??????  I also criticized Governor Murphy, why haven;t any Democrats come attacking?  What a paranoid a$$hole! 

    There is a way to contain it OBVIOUSLY you need to isolate.  Why were Republican Senators screaming for action if this is a Democratic sham?   Do some reading before you throw out accusations and criticism.   Its great he stopped travel from China but MUCH MORE had to be done - I think we all know that.  After receiving a briefing from the Senate Health and Foreign Relations Committees (who BTW were Republican Senators) that expressed a dire warning, Trump tells America this is nothing more than a Democratic Hoax, then he sharpened up to say we may have 5 cases, maybe 10, then it will just go away like magic.  It is not a political statement to say this individual (Trump) ****ed over the Country by giving the populace an obscenely false vision.  Yet he still is doing it, saying we have a treatment - only to be dispelled by Dr Fauci moments later - oh and BTW did you see Dr. Fauci's face-plant today.  Obama ****ed up the H1N1 its a fact, Trump ****ed up Covid-19 its a FACT.   The fact that a prior President did a similar action does not excuse the fault of the current President.  This is a CRISES that could destroy America forever - do you think I am happy and want to see Trump fail?  If you do you are an idiot.  I want to go to work, I want to go to the gym, I have a ticket plan for the Mets that I will not be able to enjoy this year.   I  have lost 170K from my 401K plan and 105K from my kid's 529 plan - where the **** is that money going to be made back from?  Who knows, I may get Covid=19 and die.   These are facts NOT POLITICAL RANTS.  GROW THE **** UP AND LEARN A NEW WORD - ACCOUNTABILITY.

    Wouldn’t the mortality rate drop significantly if everyone that did have it actually was tested?

    I fear the mortality rate will be higher in the US due to the gross lack of resources; 1) Test kits, 2) PPE for medical workers, 3) Hospital Beds and 4( ventilators.   Did you know the US is 32nd in the world in terms of hospital beds per capita...there's a whole lot of "sh*thole" countries who are far better equipped to handle a pandemic.

    This whole "how do you think you got it" is tone deaf AF.  This was the question about 2 months ago.  You and everyone else need to realize: EVERYONE is walking around with COVID.  It's everywhere.  EVERYWHERE.  Get with the times and get with the program.  STAY THE HELL HOME.  Moronic.

    I'm glad I am not the only one who thinks this way.  I believe the virus has been in the US since the beginning of January (or earlier) and spreading like wildfire since.  Many people who had the "flu" in January and February (and perhaps even died from it) probably had Covid-19.  I believe the early patients in the US caught it from air travel - an airplane is a cesspool of germs and everyone is breathing the same recycled air.  US residents travel more than citizens of any other country.  The biggest problem is a large % of the population are carriers and do not show symptoms and have been spreading it without abandon for months.  It wouldn't shock me if the endgame result were 250,000,000 Americans catch it/carry it, 40,000,000 suffer greatly and out of that 40M, due to not being tested and eventually due to scarcity of hospital beds and ventilators, 7M+ will die.  Our response has been pathetic to date and its probably way too late at this point.  Our population is polluted with people who believe their are entitled by the Constitution to live free from any government intervention and do WTF they want.

    I'm also tired of Trump's excuses.  People I know started talking about it shortly after the New Year.   There is evidence that members of Congress were expressing concern the first week of January.  Not to mention the Jan 24 briefing of President Trump by the Senate Health and Foreign Relations committees that expressed such a dire emergency it lead 4 Senators to sell off their entire investment portfolios.  That was Jan 24 folks, or more than 6 weeks prior to Trump finally fessing up to there being a concern.   Truthfully the US should have gone on lockdown on Jan 24, and if it had, the economy would have been saved and we would probably looking at a much much more manageable scenario.  Instead we are heading towards an economic crises greater than the Great Depression and the worst health crises in history.

    Bear in mind - the only reason why our positive test results are so low is because we have barely tested anyone.  How many people would you say are living in the US now?  Including the undocumented, I would say upwards of 360M, compare that to Spain of under 50M and Italy of approx 60M.  360M people, 943,000 hospital beds and 160,000 ventilators SMH!  In New Jersey Governor Murphy tooted his horn so very proud that we tested 600 people today, there are only 9M people living in NJ.

    The way things have been going, it doesn't feel like we're anywhere close to resuming sports (or life in general).  I'm seeing headlines like "Stay Home for 18 Months". 

    If the worst-case scenario unfolds and 150 million Americans catch the virus and 3-4 million die there will be no baseball or football season period.  My own personal opinion - the worst case scenario is more likely than not unless the entire country goes into quarantine within the next two weeks.

  12. To be a great defense you need players that the opposing team has to gameplan around/account for.  Just putting Clowney on the field makes the defense better because it will open up opportunities for other players.  I would 100% give him a one-year $18-$20M contract.  If he demands mutli-year I would design it so he can be cut after one year with minimal cap ramifications.

  13. Sometimes signing the highest rated players doesn't work out anyway and given the number of holes the Jets have to fill, perhaps Douglas is looking more at 2nd and 3rd tier guys who will cost much less and still do a serviceable job.  We need 2 CB, at least one EDGE, 4 OL, 2 or 3 WR, and at least 1 RB to be competitive next year.

    Ooof. Norman MAY be able to pass as a #2 on the opposite side of White, but he looked truly done last year. 


    I hope so, but playing for a hopeless team may have impacted his performance just a bit....

    Maybe. Have to see what the QBASE numbers are for these guys first. Darnold was pretty much a 50/50 shot when drafted, which is a bit low but given the raw talent I thought it was worth it. Numbers from his first two years aren't promising so the odds have dropped probably by quite a bit. It's not common for sophomores to put up DYAR and DVOA numbers like Darnold's and then turn it all around within a year or two.

    Basically, you're betting on the improbability of Darnold turning it around in the short-term against the probability of Burrow or Herbert having immediate success; and we don't know what the latter odds are for a few more weeks.

    50/50?  Really?    Darnold has been a victim of a combination of illness, incompetent coaching and arguably the worst supporting cast in the NFL during his first two seasons.

    Would You "Exchange" Daronld For One Of The 2020 QB Prospects ???  I'd exchange him for Justin Herbert...


    IMO Nobody in this years overhyped class has the upside of Darnold.


    In terms of ceiling I rate this years class as follows (I think Eason is the goods):

    1. Jacob Eason

    2. Justin Herbert

    3. Joe Burrow

    4. Tua

    5. Jordan Love

    6. James Morgan

    7. Jake Fromm

    Mahomes best qb in the league. That being said you be lucky to have him look like he did the 1st 2.5 quarters behind the jets o line 

    Yes he is, but he gets rattled when he's getting pressure in his face or getting knocked down and he didnt look so good when Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins were out vs the Colts at home - only managed 2 FGs and one TD.  Wonder if Darnold had the Chiefs Oline as well as Watkins, Hardman, Kelce and Hill how much different his performance would be.

    Yes, I'm bored....my All-Bama Defensive Team

    • DL Jonathan Allen

    • LB Derrick Thomas
    • LB Cornelius Bennett
    • LB  Woodrow Lowe

    Ahh Keith McCants, he was unblockable in college and  I thought he was destined for superstardom, but he never really did all that well in the NFL

    did you hear rhule speak, sounds like a preacher.  rex spoke great.  belichick is the worst speaker.  coaching matters, not orating.

    Yes and No, its still a first impression and first impressions are long lasting.  Secondly if a man does not have any poise at the podium you have to at least question his ability to command a locker room.  Lastly if you are a goof ball in ur intro presser - you are just that, see Willie Randolph (showed up to his press conference wearing jeans and a kmart sweatshirt) and Mickey Calloway (Love, Love, Love and yet, more Love).  

    Another thing about first impressions - Boomer has repeated several times how the first time Kotite spoke to the team he said something like , i dont care what you do as long as you show up on Sunday, and that is exactly what the players did - nothing all week, played hard on Sunday until they were exhausted due to poor conditioning.  

    Gase's problem at his presser- he was so wired on caffeine and g-d know what else he looked a a pinata filled with Vinegar and Baking Soda.
