  1. Mo Lew I like how you think, lets go kick some East Coast ass next year.
  2. I'm back and been reading the posts here. What I want to know is just what is your perfect scenario for the draft, the Deshaun Watson rumors, how do you think JD will go about this draft. Does he trade back and pick up another couple of picks, or do we stay at 2 and go with either Wilson, or Fields? If we keep Darnold how do we go about this draft? I've got thoughts on all scenarios but will keep it simple. We keep Sam and draft either Penei, or Devonta Smith or another top tier player with the #2 or trade back and get any one of several great talents to solidify the O line or defense. There are a plethora of wide outs and some great corners. As far as getting Watson, I'm on the fence. The cost will be very high but we do have extra first round picks the next two years, still I personally prefer drafting and building our own QB from scratch. I like Wilson and Fields almost equally but do give a slight edge to Wilson. If we do draft one of them then I would want us to go after Allan Robinson or Godwin and possibly try for Thuney to add to Bectin and another lineman in the draft. The choices are plentiful and I know all of you have your own fantasy draft and free agent signings in mind, so please convince me that you have a better scenario, although I still have more of them I prefer to hear how others are thinking because for the first time in years I actually believe that this Jets team of ours will be trending upward from here on out.
  3. I agree that we need a tried and true wide out who can bring this offense past just being OK to being a bonafide threat to the rest of the league.
  4. I would definitely love to see us sign Ryan and bring our corner backs up to the level needed to compete in todays NFL passing game.
  5. We've seen several moves by Joe Douglas to improve the team especially the O line. For this I give him a huge thumbs up, also he gets an extreme thumbs up for not buying into the former GM's habit of throwing big $$$ at questionable stars who turned out to be busts. The rumors going around about the Jets going after Logan Ryan, Larry Warford, Jason Peters and a few others have gotten plenty of interest from Jets fans. However latest news seems to be that Joe Douglas may not pursue any other free agents at this time. Now I'm hoping this means they will end up paying Adams what he deserves as the best safety in the league. But no matter how it all turns out I have complete confidence in Douglas doing what is financially and player best for the team in the long run. So my question is where do you other Jets fans believe things will turn out in the time left before actual team workouts and meetings commence?

  7. I've only seen one reference to Sons of Anarchy. A great series, well acted and a great cast. Also Peaky F'in Blinders what a great show, also based on true stuff. Oz captured us and brought forth some of our best actors today. Can't deny the greatness of The Wire and Sopranos both of which I have watched more than 3 times, each time there is more to be discovered. Now for shows that I don't think have been mentioned. I've been binging "NCIS" for some reason I got hooked watching it hoping Tony would at least get served for being such a piece of doo-doo with his misogynistic behaviors. I do not expect any of you to actually watch it but I got hooked.
  8. I can't blame everyone from being so pessimistic about Mosely. Remember he is one of the great terrible signings of the past regime who had a lousy record of forking over huge gauranteed money to players who never amounted to anything. I just think that we must see how this one plays out (we have no damn choice in the matter) if somehow Mosely does recover fully and comes back 100% and then lives up to all the hype then we can finally breathe a sigh of relief, but history tells me that we more than likely will be waiting to get this deal over with and move on. I'm counting on Joe Douglas being the man who finally brings reason and sense to the Jets front office.
  9. This may be one of the best draft picks in the long run. Having a punter who can consistantly pin the opponent deep in their own territory is priceless. With the upgrade in the defense the return of Mosley we can possibly become one of the top defenses in the league. Can't wait to see how he performs, this has been a great draft by Douglas and as long as he stays with the Jets we can count on future drafts being just as good or better than the 2020 one.
  10. Best draft in a few years for the Jets. Solidifying the O line was priority number 1 and he got it done without overreaching and panicking. Everything just seems right about this draft including the signing of undrafted players. This is of course a work in progress and will not be evaluated for a couple of years yet, still it just feels more or less safe and thats a first in several years now. Its like when your wife prepares the first dinner for your parents and you worry how it will turn out, will they approve of her or not. Well when it was over your Pops leans back from the table loosens his belt and just smiles. This is how I felt after this draft, satisfied and ready for a nap.
  11. When did any sports site not be a homer base? Its always been my belief that homers comprise roughly 85% of any pro sports fan base. Of course we're talking about the Jets here, where questionable coaching decisions, hirings and drafts have been the single most identifiable mark of this franchise over the years. For those of us who have been Jets fans for far longer than many of you who have stopped wearing huggies as your clothing of choice I do believe we have been cursed since the curse of the Namath guarantee in SBIII. For far too many years we have been subjected to idiotic hirings and owners whose egos were only outdone by the poor choices they made in trying to recapture the concept of magic in a bottle. While Rex definately has his shortcomings, I do finally think that we may have made the proper hire in MM and turning over the offense to someone who at least understands that if you can't score points with the players you hire and draft to outplay the opponents defense then you will definately be on the losing end of the scoreboards final results. Will this years version of the Jets be any better than recent versions? There are some good reasons to believe so, I do think that the offense will show enough improvement over last year to be competitive in games where they can at least do better than 8-8. Maybe not much better but definately enough to be taken seriously and perhaps have a shot at the playoffs considering just how many of the rest of the AFC will be struggling themselves to try and reach 8-8.
  12. Personally I liked the pick of Calvin Pryor, we desperately needed an enforcer to bring out the best in the rest of this group. Overall I wasn't wowed by this draft, there were too many reaches and we failed to address the need for a true young pass rushing OLB. I know that there were limits to how many were worth the investment, and because we did use the first two picks on players who I believe will be great additions to the team it made it that much more difficult to fill other needs adequately. Because I'm such a die hard Jets fan and truly believe that this team has been due one of those drafts where players selected late go on to become solid contributors I must (what choice do I have) think that this is the one that pushes this team over the edge and into the realm of playoff contention for years to come.
  13. Its hard for any Jet player to get an award, so many out there just don't believe the Jets have any viable players at all. Thing is that we and those teams who have played vs Sheldon know that he is the real deal and continue to be one of the top d linemen for the next ten years. Hopefully he'll get the award from the writers who know just how good this kid is. This result I believe was from a fans poll and means nothing in the long run.
  14. Pace is having a strong year because of the front line, but I'm not knocking him, he has 9 sacks now, not bad for a 33 year old linebacker is it. Still he must be replaced by a younger faster stronger option. Someone who can complement Coples and force teams to double team one or the other every down. What we're seeing in Coples is his natural ability to make plays, its not easy to go from a down lineman to an OLB/Hybrid lineman and he's getting better every game. Yes he's also getting fully healthy for once this year. Still we need at least one other dominant LB in this draft, and I'm still looking at replacing Harris before too long, probably in the next 2 years or so. Thing is that we won't really see this defense play out of their minds till we build that backfield into a weapon that must be respected. Right now our DB are a joke and teams come into games vs the Jets ready to feast on our weak backfield. Rex adding Reed wasn't a very smart thing to do, I think he thought that Reed could bring hiss experience and make those around him better, but it don't work that way Rex. what makes them better is bringing in better players who have a future in front of them not behind them. Rex is too sentimental to be coaching an NFL team and as much as I like him he just isn't the H.C. we need.
  15. No we didn't basically win that game. I wish that Jets fans would (some of them) face the simple reality that we have a mediocre team at best. Yes we do have what amounts to a very dominant defensive line, but it ends right there. Why waste the talents of Wilkerson, Coples, Richardson and Snacks by not adding the rest of the pieces needed to truly be a dominant all around defense? We need a solid pass rushing OLB who can dominate and make the rest of the linebackers better just because he must be doubled every play. Think of what Coples could do if he had a monster coming off the other edge? Actually i'd prefer that Coples gets back to being in the full rotation of D linemen and was replaced by another true OLB along with the pass rushing monster I mentioned before. And while I'm at it we might as well get the MLB to take over for Harris in the next year or two. As far as the D backfield goes, well thats our biggest weak link and its not getting any better unless we make a solid commitment to add the free agents and draft the safeties we must have to take advantage of the pass rush. We suck on pass defense and lately (last couple of games) we aren't looking very good at defending runners either. I'm only talking about our strong suit here, the side of the team that needs the least amount of work to reach the level of competing for a division title and getting into the playoffs consistently. And to make this defense that good will take 2 years of drafting and free agent pickups. So what can we do about the offense? Not very much, but we must get Geno the wide outs that he needs to see if he can make this offense work or not. But adding bodies that can get open and make tough catches isn't quite enough, because if the O line isn't brought back up to the 2010-11 levels then we'll never know just what this offense can accomplish. Right now the line is so very inconsistent that week to week no one can make any predictions other than we won't be moving the ball very well. Making Rex the focal point of attacks isn't going to change things unless Idzik decides that he must go, something that bothers me because I've always liked Rex, but as far as the Jets go from here on out I think we'd be better off by finally jettisoning him and moving forward with a clean slate. Rex IMO just doesn't quite see the whole picture and all the nuances of being a H.C. in todays NFL and this team sorely needs a H.C. who knows both sides of running the team. Problem for me is that unless we can bring in Cowher I don't see anyone currently available who can do much better than Rex at the moment. Gruden? oh no, not Chucky in N.Y. nor any of the rest of recently departed coaches especially Shanahan (who will be fired ASAP) or any of his offspring. I know I'm missing some strong candidates and want to see some suggestions as to who could come in and take control of this team along with Idzik and finally let us see growth every year instead of the merry go round we've suffered with for the last few decades. With the exception of Parcells the Jets always seem to be settling for second or third best option at H.C.. Why, is it because of Woody? Or just the Jets destiny to be forever cursed by less than competent coaching and a very poor group of talent evaluaters in our war room on draft day. Well we won't know until next spring just how well Idzik is prepared to take this team forward, he has got to make the bold moves we need to improve our team and this coming draft and free agency period will be what defines his memory as the G.M. of the Jets going forward.
