I'll say this - Baker Mayfield played at a level so much higher than Darnold it would have been embarrassment had Cleveland took Darnold instead. Mayfield has a lot of Steve Young in him and Darnold - a lot of Eli Manning.
Not to complain but this is the second game breaker we cud have had but Mac blew it on. Dont tell me Kahlil Mack and Josh Gordon were not worth the comp. Those two players make us a playoff team this year.
We are not that good, keep in mind Detroit has only one pass rusher - and he didnt play much of the game. The Dolphins will have Wake and Quinn coming off the edges. Sunday will be much more competitive.

Yeah but calling a TO would have given the NFL more time to look at it. Given blue chalk flew up from his toe, he was in and takes 3 pts off the board.

Cant NO MORE TO's, I think he was in. that was messed up
WTF is with burning all the TOs? Is this Herm Edwards/Hackett redux?

imo, 10-6 or higher with a chance at the division. while everyone seems to be focused on darnold, the defense has actually played pretty well. tighten up the special teams and this team could surprise.
With Kahlil Mack, possibly. The defense has been good in preseason but the absence of any kind of pass rush is disgusting. I do not believe we will be able to run the ball on offense, putting too much on a rookie QBs shoulders.

I only disagree with your Minnesota prediction, They will just ass kick us. They have a great defense, a good enough Qb and their offense is very underrated talent wise.
I believe Cousins is a choker and he will feel the pressure of his big contract and passing up more money with the Jets. If you can stop Diggs and Rudolph, nobody else scares me - will Cook be as good as he was pre-injury?
Things are looking up in Jets nation with the arrival and indoctrination of a potential franchise QB. However aside from the QB there are many holes and flaws within this roster. So what does that mean as we approach the regular season?
Week 1 @ Detroit . On the road, noisy stadium, solid pass rush, Matt Stafford. enough said. Lions 24 Jets 13. (0-1)
Week 2 vs Miami. Home opener, pumped up crowd, solid effort from D. Jets 17 Dolphins 13. (1-1)
Week 3 @ Cleveland. I may be a fool but I don't see why Cleveland does not get more respect for this upcoming season. Cleveland 23 Jets 13 (1-2)
Week 4 @ Jacksonville IMO this will be Darnold's worst game of the year, a bloodbath. Jax 27 Jets 0. (1-3)
Week 5 vs Denver. Darnold shows his mettle with his best pro effort after his worst Jets 31 Denver 17 (2-3)
Week 6 vs Indianapolis. A fun and exciting shootout, Indys inferior defense and inability to run the ball does them in Jets 38 Indy 30 (3-3)
Week 7 vs Minnesota A tight defensive battle with Cousins outdoing Darnold in the mistake dept. Jets 13 Minn 10 (4-3)
Week 8 @ Chicago The up and coming Bears D picks is the story of the game. Bears 16 Jets 3 (4-4)
Week 9 @ Miami This time Miami's pass rush wins Miami 24 Jets 13 (4-5)
Week 10 vs Buffalo Jets stay out of last place with a solid effort. Jets 24 Buffalo 20. (5-5)
Week 12 vs New England Bill loves rookie QBs NE 35 Jets 14 (5-6)
Week 13 @ Tenn Two mediocre teams one with a better D Tenn 23 Jets 13 (5-7)
Week 14 @ Buffalo Buffalo doesnt do anything particularly well Jets 28 Buffalo 10 (6-7)
Week 15 vs Houston Houston is rolling at this point of the season. Houston 34 Jets 20. (6-8)
Week 16 vs Green Bay Another mismatch Green Bay 38 Jets 24 (6-9)
Week 17 @ NE An exclamation point on the Todd Bowles error. NE 41 Jets 21 (6-10)
Darnold 3,800 yds 21 TDs 17 Ints. Pretty good rookie year...a lot of hope for the future.
A rough draft:
New England 13-3
LA Chargers 10-6
Oak Raiders 9-7
NY Giants 10-6
Green Bay 10-6
New Orleans 12-4
Tampa Bay 6-10
LA Rams 10-6
New England defeats New Orleans in the Super Bowl, Brady announces retirement.
Realistically - who would want Teddy? Barring an injury. the only potential teams are Kansas City, Jacksonville and Miami. I am not trading him within the division so that leaves KC and Jax. At this juncture the best you'll get is a conditional pick - you have to ponder whether its worth it to give him away like that.
Is there a rush to start Darnold right away? This team is simply not good enough to make the playoffs as constructed as well as considering the schedule. 3 games in the first 10 days of the season! 3 of the first 4 on the road! Then after playing on the road against Jax we come home to seeing Chubb and Miller flying towards the pocket, followed by Indy, Minn and on the road against Chicago and their pass rush? Logic tells you not to start Darnold just for the sake of his physical well being!
No matter who starts at QB, after the first 8 games - at best we are 4-4. Keep Darnold on the bench until at least week 9.

For the first preseason game it was ok. But going forward, especially now that we all know Darnold is a legit contender for week 1 starter, it's simply not fair to Darnold, Teddy, or McCown to have them play in the 4th quarter behind a line of scrubs. It's also a risk to the franchise because if they lose someone then Teddy's potential trade value is gone and they'll need to keep him.
Bring back Hackenberg for all I care.
Absolutely shocking that they dont have one.

Think we got a good one. Here’s to hoping he turns into a Carson Wentz/Aaron Rodgers mix.
Dont think he's that kind of QB, but Matt Stafford is as good of a comp as I can fathom.

Rosen just solidified and perpetuated the notion that he’s a supreme douche.

He has 9 older siblings?
Well this was some night folks. In my 40+ years as a Jets fan this is my happiest first round draft pick since 1985 when we selected Al Toon. (I was actually pissed about Revis because I liked Hall just as much and we didnt need to trade up for him). I remember pi$$ing myself out of glee over Richard Todd too, so I cant claim genious.
We almost didnt $uck enough for Sam, but at the end of the day - he was the one I wanted all along, lets hope me and Mac were right!

Baltimore is back in.....Gotta be Lamar Jackson
Good call bro. Flacco may not make it out of Preseason as the starter - not that Jackson is all that, but Flacco sux.
Interesting, very interesting. PRPIs kind of cure bone on bone these days dont they>\?

Believe it or not I think we have a shot at 9-7. The bills have even a way worse O-line than we do and miami’s Qb situation is a mess and they lost Jarvis Landry and Ndamokung Suh
Robby is only looking at a 1 game suspension which is huge. Trumaine Johnson was actually an excellent signing
Ummmm IDK man, I count losses @Detroit, @Jax , vs Denver, vs Minn, @CHI, @MIA, vs NE, vs HOU, vs GB, @NE.
I doubt we see Darnold do anything but a few garbage time snaps. Its a redshirt year. The roster is still thin. We still dont have an OL. Its a tough schedule. Looking at no better than 6-10. NY Jets 2019 Division Champs!

Darnold will start before Hack.
I havent laughed this hard in weeks! Thanks - I needed that!
Okay Jet fans...Todd Bowles...discuss.
in NY Jets Forum
The theme under Bowles continues - never makes adjustments and too damn conservative.
